i know why we do this but pointing out the illogic or hipocrisy, well im not sure what it does

the *why* of the law, the logic, does not matter.
it doesnt have to be logical, scientific or make sense.
it does not have to stand up to scrutiny.

those in power make laws and they made this law.
cart before the horse doesnt matter. why doesn’t matter
especially in this case because they did not have to persuade any sens/reps from the other side to vote. that’s when why matters.

they’ve done it. they passed the law.

when it’s inevitably fought about later, the *justification* for it still wont matter.
only the so called constitutionality of it

Aaargh, French TV has been showing “A Bout de Souffle” almost continuously for over 24 hours now, Jean Seberg was stunningly cute (as was 1960’s Belmondo), but damn, you can have too much of a good thing.

I’m watching the “folksier” RWNJ sites. People are watching their world picture collapse, and some of them are putting on ghost shirts. (They even produced a multi-tribal shaman.) It’s only a matter of time until they find their way to Wounded Knee.

Having stepped in deep crap, I’m going to head off to bed.

But before I go, if there are people here who enjoy African music, you might enjoy what the Voice of America has done: Digitally-archived their longest-running music programme to Africa from when it was first broadcast on shortwave.

A journey from international shortwave to digital broadcast, the Music Time in Africa Archive takes audiences through an on-line experience of vintage Voice of America radio programs broadcast from 1966. The collaborative project with the University of Michigan digitized nearly 900 audio recordings and associated scripts of the weekly radio program. The archive now features 691 radio programs with a combination of program script and broadcast audio, with an additional 120 radio programs coming soon.

The broadcasts feature show hosts playing a variety of African music and original field recordings by VOA ‘s “Music Man for Africa,” ethnomusicologist Leo Sarkisian. Sarkisian recorded and collected music from the early 1960s through the late 1980s throughout the entire African continent, including pre-independence regions and states such as Balundo, Upper Volta, and Rhodesia. Visitors can play digitized broadcasts with original sounds and scripts, searchable by location or performer. The portraits displayed for each show are Sarkisian’s original artwork, painted and sketched over the years. Listeners can listen to music ranging from iconic urban artists Fela Kuti or Franco to traditional performances by Karanga “Gawo” of Zimbabwe or griot music by kora master Sidiki Diabaté of the Republic of Mali. The site will soon allow the audience to explore 361 reels of Sarkisian’s original field recordings and engage with the music and scripts in a comment section.

Launched in 1965 by Sarkisian, Music Time in Africa is VOA’s longest running radio broadcast to the African continent. The program continues to feature traditional and contemporary music from musicians throughout Africa.

KGxvi  Sep 7, 2021 • 3:49:05pm

Since the Texas shadow docket decision, I’ve been thinking about something when it comes to our system of government and constitutional protections…

First, the idea that Congress can, in any meaningful way, codify constitutional rights short of an amendment - the problem with passing a law to codify Roe, as is being suggested, is that the next Republican Congress and Republican president can simply repeal that law, because it would only be a statute. It returns us to the idea that constitutional rights are subject to the whims of congressional majorities (majorities that may often, at least in the Senate, but potentially in the House, represent a minority of Americans).

Second thought: Supreme Court term limits don’t help matters much either. All term limits do is give legislatures a chance to time when they will do their fuckery based on when terms come up. In fact, the consistency of having life tenure probably actually helps keep the fuckery at bay in most instances.

Third, the fact that 3 (or 5*) of the Supreme Court Justices were appointed by someone who did not win a majority of the vote for president is another reminder that the Electoral College is incredibly stupid. *Bush’s two appointments were in his second term, where he won an actual majority, so I’m less annoyed by that outcome.

Idea number four: the theme of these first two (and now into our third) decade of the 21st century seems to be the failing of institutions. It happened a bit at the end of the Bush administration, thought it seemed like Obama was turning the tide, but after Trump it seems like Obama may be an anomaly rather than a course correction. The problem with this is that the modern American system is built on institutions, and if they fail, we fail… which is, not good.

I don’t know, maybe I’m just down a bit today, but this is the first time I’ve really been skeptical of the wider system holding, and I don’t really know why that is

The whole key to understanding the anti-vax pro-horse dewormer mentality is that it’s not just this one thing for these people. Admitting that they’ve been wrong about this isn’t like admitting you were wrong about thinking that Willie Mays hit 700 home runs or that Detroit is the capital of Michigan. To admit you were wrong about this thing in particular would be to pull on a thread that could unravel your entire social and political identity. For those in the right wing bubble/base, admitting error on this point basically requires a literal conversion experience. It would be like a former Christian fundamentalist coming to the view that the Bible isn’t actually the inerrant word of God. In other words, that’s not just some random fact, but THE fact, that holds every other part of the person’s world view together.

re: #10 KGxvi

I can’t see a way forward for the US without breaking the power of right wing propaganda, and I can’t see a way to do that.

IMO the central problem is that the right doesn’t have to get to a 50% crazification factor to ‘win’. If they needed to do that, we’d be pretty safe, since that number is unreachable.

But if they are a persistently substantial and crazy minority, they can ‘win’ by making the nation ungovernable until fatigue sets in and some stupid deal gets made, like the deal that got Hitler into power in Germany.

Murdaugh update—

The Mercedes-Benz GLS sport utility vehicle driven by prominent South Carolina attorney R. Alexander “Alex” Murdaugh on Saturday - the day he sustained a “superficial” gunshot wound to the head while purportedly changing a tire on the side of a rural Hampton county road - was equipped with run-flat tires, sources familiar with the situation have confirmed to this news outlet.

These tires - also known as “extended mobility tires” - allow a vehicle to travel approximately fifty miles with little to no tire pressure due to the presence of a reinforced sidewall.

“Alex was changing a tire when a car passed him,” WCIV TV 4 (ABC - Charleston, S.C.) reported on Saturday, quoting Griffin. “The vehicle turned around and someone in the car shot him.”

Most Mercedes SUVs equipped with run-flat tires do not include spare tires - which would mean there would have been no reason for Murdaugh to pull over to the side of the road to try and change a flat tire.

(He was 7 miles from home when this tragic flat tire incident happened)

If you get into choice, difficulty, “good circumstances” or “bad circumstances”, you’re accepting the Republican framing, and you’ve conceded the argument before you even started! I see that over and over on this site, and it annoys me.

I talked about vegans. Vegan Twitter likes to nag Disabled Twitter, saying that we would be less disabled if we took a vegan diet. Many disabled people, including autistics and others, gave very detailed explanations why they cannot be vegans.

I said “fuck that shit”. I don’t want to be vegan. I don’t need to justify it.

Likewise, giving someone a justification for having or not having an abortion is just giving power to some random asshole, probably male, but still definitely unjustified and incompetent to decide for you in any case.

At dinner tonight, I learned about a non-vaxxer — and it came as a surprise. Was this mentioned here? Both Jesse Jackson and his wife were hospitalized for Covid on August 21. He was vaccinated but she was not! Apparently they have now both been released from the hospital.

Talked with a girl friend who moved to Texas pre-Covid to be near to her children who all reside there. For some reason she does not understand, her daughter refuses to be vaccinated, believing it to be unnecessary. There is something about these Republican states that can cause intelligent educated people to lose their sense of reason. OTOH, most Republicans, regardless of their place of residence, also seem to have lost any semblance of logic and understanding when it comes to issues driven by the GOP culture wars, attacks on science, and Trump idolization.

Good news they’re out of the hospital. IIRC, she has a medical condition that prevented vaccination.

re: #10 KGxvi

…..
First, the idea that Congress can, in any meaningful way, codify constitutional rights short of an amendment - the problem with passing a law to codify Roe, as is being suggested, is that the next Republican Congress and Republican president can simply repeal that law, because it would only be a statute. It returns us to the idea that constitutional rights are subject to the whims of congressional majorities (majorities that may often, at least in the Senate, but potentially in the House, represent a minority of Americans).

Second thought: Supreme Court term limits don’t help matters much either. All term limits do is give legislatures a chance to time when they will do their fuckery based on when terms come up. In fact, the consistency of having life tenure probably actually helps keep the fuckery at bay in most instances.

Third, the fact that 3 (or 5*) of the Supreme Court Justices were appointed by someone who did not win a majority of the vote for president is another reminder that the Electoral College is incredibly stupid. *Bush’s two appointments were in his second term, where he won an actual majority, so I’m less annoyed by that outcome.

Idea number four: the theme of these first two (and now into our third) decade of the 21st century seems to be the failing of institutions. It happened a bit at the end of the Bush administration, thought it seemed like Obama was turning the tide, but after Trump it seems like Obama may be an anomaly rather than a course correction. The problem with this is that the modern American system is built on institutions, and if they fail, we fail… which is, not good.
T skeptical of the wider system holding, and I don’t really know why that is

Some comments here —
1. Yes — a law can be undone with the next administration but it can be very challenging once it’s woven into the fabric of our society. As much as the GOP would like to eliminate them, too many programs are now part of our culture — you think anyone would dare (though they have tried) to eliminate Social Security or Medicare? Courtesy of gerrymandering and voter suppression, we already have the problem that the House majority can represent a minority of Americans.

2-3 In general, it’s the president that’s responsible to what happens to the Supreme Court, not Congress (Garland not withstanding). Right now, we are stuck for at least a generation due to the inability to dislodge the SC 6 GOP majority. And once the Federalist Society reared its ugly head, the court became subject to a malevolent ideology. It was the Bush v Gore decision that has led us down a very dark path.

Our institutions are definitely failing us, with the assistance of a RW propaganda media and a corrupt MSM — and there seems no help in sight.

Interesting article in the WashPost predicting continued global dislocation and spot shortages due to the ongoing pandemic. And yes, apparently paper is expected to be in shorter supply in the next few months.

I have to admit, my being a geezer, and with most of my life lived prior the advent of global supply chains, I am not highly concerned.

…snip…
Mounting challenges — including factory shutdowns, computer chip shortages and clogged ports — are rattling the industry as it prepares for the crucial holiday shopping season, an eight-week window that can account for more than half of a retailer’s annual sales.
…snip…
“Covid has turned supply chains on their head,” said Neel Jones Shah, global head of airfreight for Flexport, a logistics technology company. “We’re seeing an astronomical rise in shipping rates, a dramatic lengthening of transit times and a logjam of cargo at every port. Shippers are scrambling to figure out how to get their goods to market in time for the Christmas selling season.”

Two of the nation’s largest retailers, Walmart and Home Depot, are chartering their own ships to retrieve their products, while Amazon is beefing up its fleet of cargo planes. Urban Outfitters is switching from ocean freight to air in hopes of bypassing clogged ports in the run-up to the holidays. (Amazon founder Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post.)

“We’re telling our customers, ‘September is the new December,’ ” she said. “If you see something that’s important to you, buy it now.”

“Rapist” doesn’t mean the same thing to them, because they’re fine with a lot of forms of coercion that void consent, and they’re fine with people that aren’t “innocent” being coerced or forced into sexual acts, and they are certain that there are superior kinds of people who simply can’t be rapists.

So when Abbott talks about pre-emptively catching all the rapists, it’s this funhouse definition wherein the Real Rapists are guys that catch the conservative imagination as threatening to the womenfolk or threatening to the feelings of the men.

Basically, wingnuts do as they usually do and play fast and loose with terms (and even invent new ones) in order to avoid acknowledging all those forms other than ones involving a white victim and a minority rapist. Hence the term “forcible rape,” which on its surface would seem to imply any case where the victim was forced (whether through violence, threats, extortion, etc) would qualify as rape, but in Repub terminology really only means translates as “white woman held by black man at knife point.”

Spousal rape? “How can a husband rape his wife? Marriage vows imply consent!”

Date rape? “So what if she was inebriated/drugged/unconscious when the act occurred? He says she consented, so that’s all that matters!”

Rape involving extortion/verbal threats/etc? “If she agreed to have sex, then the threats don’t matter. Consent is consent!”

Rape involving a minority victim? “She’s crying rape to get attention! Probably looking to make some money off the guy! I question her sincerity!”

Rape involving a young white rapist? “Hey, we can’t let this one mistake ruin his life! He comes from a good family and he’s got a sports career ahead of him! Can’t we just let him go with an apology and a bit of counseling?”

Something to start your day if you live in California.

The man who started the movement to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom has COVID-19 (Sacramento Bee)

The lead proponent of the effort to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom has COVID-19.

Orrin Heatlie, the retired Yolo County sheriff’s sergeant who started the recall movement last year, confirmed to The Sacramento Bee that he tested positive for the virus and has been isolating while recovering.

Heatlie said he did not receive the COVID-19 vaccine prior to his infection, and his case was not severe enough to warrant a hospital stay or any extreme measures.

“I was given some medication for a cough, but that was it,” he said.

Heatlie’s infection highlights what has been perhaps the most divisive issue in the recall campaign.

(more)

When Mr. Heatlie started the recall effort, it was over alleged misconduct by Gov. Newsom over crime and immigration. As the pandemic took hold and Newsom instituted a series of measures to slow its progress, Mr. Heatlie seized on that to drive people to sign petitions.

“I am not anti-vaccine. My daughter and my wife are both fully vaccinated, and I’m not against people getting vaccinated, but I am all for personal choice and people’s right to make an informed decision,” he said.

With one week left until the recall election, Newsom and allies are pushing the message that recall proponents will stall California’s progress in fighting the virus.

Yes, you’re anti-vaccine.

Morning Lizards. So I did a thing last night for dinner. Food pron behind the tag.

I made tacos. Yeah, yeah. Big deal. Well not really. I just made them using homemade tortillas for the first time. Yes, I know they are brown. I used whole wheat flour instead of white and I added a teaspoon of (homemade) taco seasoning for a bit of flavor. They are also a bit thicker than commercially made/pressed. I am working on that. Anyhow, here’s some pics.

Whole wheat dough.

First pressing.

A couple of sides.

And done. Yes, they were good.

re: #178 Dangerman

YouTube’s search listing today is full of vitriol against atheists again.

A common saying amongst atheists is “There’s no hate quite like Christian love.”

Of course it’s not just Christians; all religions fear us.

What ATHEIST IDIOTS need to hear about demons

(random Christian apologist)

I’m aware. They cause epilepsy. A Florida divorce court also agreed atheists are possessed by demons and shouldn’t be around children. (I know the guy the judge did that to. /s Fortunately that judge went to jail for corruption unrelated to that case.)

An Empty and Seductive Philosophy

(Catholic priest’s Sunday homily)

Lying for Jesus, since atheism is not a philosophy. (I suppose it could be seductive. We have cookies.)

Atheist ‘Chaplain’ Claims He Can be Good Without God

(Gary DeMar)

Attacking Harvard’s new Humanist chaplain. Makes the same assertion other apologists have made for two millennia. Please don’t give up your religion if you require it to be good.

3 Reason NEVER Marry An Atheist

(rando Christian apologist)

Holds forth for over half an hour on this subject. Reflects what Pew Research’s Religious Landscape Survey notes, that overwhelming numbers of Christians of all sects (and other religions as well) would never consider dating or marrying an atheist.

World’s Most Notorious Atheist Converts: Anthony Flew

(Catholic priest)

Anthony Flew was an English philosopher. He was an open atheist, but famously stated in 2004 that he believed in an intelligent creator. He died in 2010.

Because of the “intelligent creator” shift in position, Christians have ever since lied and said he became a Christian and “accepted Jesus.” He explicitly stated he was a Deist, and constantly refuted Christian claims while he was alive that he had become a Christian. Now that he’s dead, they can lie about him with impunity and he cannot defend himself. His most influential work was the book “The Presumption of Atheism” (1976) in which he laid out the philosophical arguments for the burden of proof of the assertion of any deity lies on the one making the assertion. The book also sought to change the philosophy profession’s old definition of atheism being a denial of the Christian god to a lack of belief in any deities.

Jordan Peterson - I Am Not An Atheist Anymore

(Yes we know, Jordon, and you dragged all your libertarian acolytes right along with you)

Is it ok to be an atheist. God was never on your side

(musician Alan Ready)

Atheists Are Idiots part 2 Hugo Lopes

(rando Christian, yes there’s a part one to this because Christians need long explanations why we are idiots, along with an excessive expounding of Pascal’s Wager and how we can’t be good without God).

Episode 46: My Story: How Not To Date An Atheist: Part 3

(DSW Ministries)

They are doing a whole series on how to convert atheists if you do go on dates with them, or why you should not date an atheist if you are not prepared to try to convert us.

The existence of Heaven & Hell- scientifically and logically proves to an Atheist

(Dr. Zakir Naik, Muslim apologist)

Same tropes Christians use to “prove” Heaven and Hell.

When You Bring Religion To Work And Your Boss Is An Atheist

(random Christian)

Complaining he can’t proselytise at work by acting as a strawman “angry atheist” boss

Phim Tài Liệu | Ảo Tưởng Vô Thần

(Matt Powell translating his “Atheists are Deluded” video into Vietnamese to go after scientists)

কেন বাংলাদেশে নাস্তিকতা ও নারীবাদ দিন দিন বেড়ে চলেছে

(Hinduism apologist explaining why free will causes atheists to promote feminism against a woman’s nature … interesting the poster uses Dr. Zakir the Muslim apologist to promote where Hinduism and Islam agree: Atheists are bad for misleading women to believe they are “created” equally)

She has not, and I doubt the Lincoln police will. That was in a Super Saver store. A couple wingnuts tried to claim the Super Saver is owned by Democratic Party chair Jane Raybould (that is not true: The idea was to claim Democrats don’t really care about this and it’s all performance art by Democrats).

The Wal*Mart coughing woman was a different person a year ago in a different state. She was arrested for damaging property, and Wal*Mart threw out $35,000 worth of produce.

When psychologists go wrong: A 1973 psychological experiment by a Mexican anthropologist (so not trained in psychology), Santiago Genovés into studying violence by having ten people (six men and four women, plus himself and a female pilot because he thought a woman in charge would humiliate the men) sail on a derelict freighter from the Canary Islands to Mexico.

The trip took 101 days. During the voyage, he turned into a tyrant because there wasn’t a big sex party during the voyage.

In one part of the voyage, the ship was travelling toward a tropical storm and the master refused to sail through it, he took over the ship. Another time the ship’s rudder broke and the only qualified diver on the ship was one of the women. He refused to let her make the dive, insisting only men could do that, and did it himself. He nearly drowned.

Speaking of tropical storms:

The tropical wave in the Gulf of Mexico is now south of the Mississippi River delta, moving toward Florida (and a possible threat to Georgia and South Carolina). The National Hurricane Center has upped the risk of the wave becoming a tropical cyclone to 50% within two days.

Hurricane Larry is still moving toward Bermuda. The prognostication has not changed, though the National Hurricane Center has further bumped the track further west in the latter part of the prediction, now predicting a direct strike on Newfoundland. Afterward, the hurricane will go extra-tropical, and be absorbed as a tropical storm into a cold front between Greenland and Iceland.

Trump is already stating that Newsom can only win by cheating, which indicates he has reason to believe Newsom has a good chance of winning…

today’s electoral-vote.com

The bottom line is that Newsom looks awfully safe. The only real hopes for the pro-recall forces: (1) a huge number of people who said they planned to support Newsom were either lying or changed their minds after talking to the pollster, or (2) a huge number of people who said they planned to support Newsom and were likely to vote were too optimistic, and ultimately prove unable to find the 30 seconds it requires to fill out a ballot and drop it in the mail. That sounds like “slim” and “none” to us, with slim about to leave town. Indeed, at this point, it appears more likely that Newsom is sustained by 10+ points than that he is recalled. Heck, it’s possible that he comes out on top by closer to 20; our back-of-the-envelope math above has him up 26 points among the ballots that have been received (63%-37%).

88 Tactical, Militarized Police, and a Looming Coup in Brazil (Goes to Seeing Red Nebraska)

88 Tactical is a huge gun superstore in the west Omaha suburbs with numerous ties to Nazis.

—-

Brazil is currently on high alert amid signs its fascist leader is planning a “self coup” to despotically seize and retain power. Bolsonaro loyalists have had years of training from Omaha’s 88 Tactical and US law enforcement.

What the actual hell is going on with 88 Tactical in Omaha?

Last year I wrote about the business’s persistent interest in Nazi imagery and white supremacy. Now here is something else alarming: 88 Tactical’s links to a foreign authoritarian leader, Jair Bolsonaro, who many Brazilians fear is planning a dictatorial takeover of Brazil, perhaps as soon as tomorrow, September 7 [it hasn’t happened yet apparently, as today is September 8].

In early 2016, around the time that an infusion of investment funds allowed 88 Tactical to construct the massive fortress that greets all interstate travelers into Omaha from the west with a gigantic Nazi eagle and Nazi code, 88 Tactical also sponsored Eduardo Bolsonaro’s visit to the Shot Show, a massive firearms expo in Las Vegas.

One of my friends with long Covid has been sitting in a waiting room at a Northern Virginia ER for 10 hours. (One guy has been there for 15 hours.) She went in because she was swelling, had chest pain and joint pain. The nurses did get her an ECG which indicates long QT interval but she has yet to be seen by a doctor, because sick unvaccinated Covid patients are taking priority at the moment. She thought about going home and trying to get in at her doctor, but knows her ECG numbers mean she’d be back in that waiting room. As you can imagine, she’s fairly bitter at the unvaxxed.

Also the topographical map he had as a wall decoration with a peak marked “1488” when the map markings would indicate the elevation is 1520 (metres? feet? that part wasn’t marked).

When called out publicly, he feigned ignorance and removed the map.

He also prominently displayed Black Rifle Coffee Company “SS” branded coffee in his shop.

He claims the “88” is code for the Omaha Police Department “situation secure” (it’s not).

His dog is named Panzer.

It’s funny how he keeps accidentally falling into all this Nazi propaganda.

I’m more interested in which investment fund help him build his paean to fascists, and why he also has a business next door to his gun superstore training centre called 88 Med (which amongst other things gives testosterone shots).

Got a mild scare yesterday on the interstate while driving back south from visiting my brother.

Semi a bit ahead of me had a tire on the trailer break up and suddenly there was a large strip of moving rubber and steel bouncing along my lane at speed. Had to go onto the shoulder to dodge it. (Luckily it had essentially stopped moving by the time I got to it.)

Car ahead of me had to do a much more drastic dodge since he was closer when things happened.

I recall the blowup over Mad Max: Fury Road being too “feminized”, which makes you realize what a bunch of dateless wonders some of these Men’s Rights Activists are.

Mad Max was just trying to get more women into to see the release: they already had enough cool chopped up monster trucks, explosions and flaming guitars to draw all the male crowd, so they were looking to broaden their appeal.

If these guys had dates, they would be happy to have an excuse to have her along to the cinema or to watch a football game.

similar happened to me once on an electra glide with a passenger-du-jour
(years before mrsdm and i reincarnated)

50-60mph
truck in front of us drove over a whole tire lying in the road so i didnt see it till i did
and there was no time. it was I-95 lots of traffic and maybe i was a tad too close
no time to swerve and stay in the lane, and couldnt change lanes
i yelled hold on (cause that’s what you yell after you mutter “shit”)
i thought we were definitely going to hit it and fall

we rode right over it

it was a toy run or a poker run or something
we did some serious thankful drinking that day

we like to think there will be time
to see, analyze, choose, act
like the movie hero
like the slow motion

and we think we know what it’s going to be - child and ball, left turn in front of me, etc.

in truth there is barely time to automatically react
and even that assumes some level of honed skill and situational awareness
in a car it’s steering, gas, brake - not much else.
most people swerve and brake cause they dont practice anything else (like gun owners)
and they’re reading their phones or eating or talking or….

90 percent of people think they’re an above average driver

If you want to honor participants in the Civil War on private property with private funds, I guess that is your good right, and nobody is coming to take it away.

But there is no reason to grant them any cachet of approval by honoring them on public property or with public funds.

This shit is so effing weird. Do these guys really get upset if they notice a female is doing the play by play? Do they get equally upset if a woman is doing the sideline reporting?

I watch a lot of football. It doesn’t even register if a female is part of the announcing team. Frankly, I try to ignore any of the announcers, because 99% of what they are saying is just cliched pablum that detracts from the viewing experience. Doesn’t matter the gender.

But I guess it’s just the nature of grievance culture.

See, I’m getting accustomed to this, because in e-sports, it’s not uncommon to have a female doing broadcasting. Some of them are quite a bit more talented than their male counterparts, in fact. If I heard a woman doing the play-by-play at a baseball game, I wouldn’t even bat an eyelash.

Back in the day, Sept. 8, 1964: First day of school for Omaha’s first Black woman principal (Omaha World-Herald)

Edmae Swain started her first day as the first Black woman principal in the Omaha Public Schools 57 years ago today.

In 1964, the Omaha Public School district was still segregated. She was appointed by then-school superintendent Harry Burke, an arch-segregationist. (There is a fight on now to rename a school recently built in North Omaha named after him.) The school she was placed in charge of was fully resegregated in 1965.

The schools were not desegregated until 1976.

In 1969, she was made principal of an all-white elementary school

I think the problem suffers from too much hindsight.

Most of the statues were put up by the Daughters of the Confederacy in two waves: After Reconstruction ended, and during the Civil Rights Era.

The point of the statues was to intimidate African-Americans. Most were put up in places which were very public and they had to pass every day.

The same goes for naming buildings, like my son’s high school. Every day a student passing through the doors had to pass several signs honouring who fought for their enslavement. Every paper. Every school event such as a football game or cheerleaders.

It is also why conservatives are whinging so hard now about removing these things (including the Nazi Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA, which was allegedly about removing a Lee statute there).

They still want slaves and they still want to keep African-Americans in their place.

It is also why the Republican Party is whinging about it: They are today’s conservatives and they want the same thing.

Man wanted for two East Coast murders (one in New Jersey, one in DC) was just arrested yesterday a few miles east of me, near Llewellen at Lake McConaughy.

Man suspected in East Coast homicides arrested at Lake McConaughy (North Platte, Nebr. Telegraph)

STERLING, Colo. — Authorities from Colorado and Nebraska joined last week in arresting a suspect in two East Coast homicides near the northwest end of Lake McConaughy.

Luis Carranza-Andrade was arrested without incident at Lake Mac’s Marina Landing based on a tip from federal authorities, the Logan County Sheriff’s Office in Sterling said on its Facebook page.

Marina Landing, five miles east of Lewellen, is a Keith County development along Nebraska Highway 92 near the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Omaha Beach area.

The U.S. Marshals Service in New Jersey told the department Sept. 1 that Carranza-Andrade was in the Lewellen area and wanted in connection with separate homicides in New Jersey and Washington, D.C.

Some Logan County sheriff’s deputies are assigned to the Marshals Service’s Colorado Violent Offenders Task Force, according to the Colorado department’s Facebook post.

Task force members arrested Carranza-Andrade at a residence he was working on at Marina Landing, the post said.

(more)

Keith County (two counties east) and Garden County (one county east) deputies made the arrest.

Except that is not how any of that works. If you miss a flight, you usually just get the next one (even on a purchased non-refundable ticket, it is highly unlikely you have to buy a new ticket) nor do you just get to board the plane if it happens to come back (especially if it was due to a bomb threat. You’d likely be able to walk home faster coz they’re gonna deplane all the folks and take the plan apart. They may attempt to get a new plane to put you on, but, that shit caused a ton of unhappiness and delays for a lot of people. Because she’s dumb and vindictive.

In May 2018 John Carreyrou reported that American business and government leaders lost more than $600 million by privately investing in Theranos. Major investments had been made by the Walton family ($150 million), Rupert Murdoch ($121 million), Betsy DeVos ($100 million), and the Cox family (of Cox Media Group) ($100 million). The final liquidation of the company in September 2018 rendered these investments worthless.

As a veteran of many sports talk communities and sports message boards, I can tell you yes. Men hate women announcers. And women sports talk shows (There’s only one national sports talk show host that’s a woman.) They hate the women sideline reporters, unless they’re good looking and then they say all sorts of trash around that. Any woman who dares step on football turf as anything other than a cheerleader is treated like ass.

I will say this too. Men hate men announcers, reporters, talk show hosts, etc. also. But they hate the men because they know they could do a better job. Really. Every guy that posts thinks they could do a better job than any media guy.

Sports “culture” is trash. The only good news is that some of the national sports talk guys aren’t nearly as sexist as they used to be. Some. But none of them cover women’s sports and there is zero respect for women’s sports period.

My state senator, wanting to disenfranchise people in the area where the population grew (the cities).

That would be done by splitting Douglas County’s rural area (seat Omaha) off, so it can be added as an “urban” district. The law limits Nebraska to the smallest legislature in the nation (forty-nine senators in the Unicameral), so growth in the cities means making smaller city districts and periodically combining rural districts.

They would also split part of NE-2 (Omaha) and add it to NE-1 (Lincoln), diluting the liberal district here.

The argument for that bit of fuquery is “I don’t know why Omaha wouldn’t want to be represented by two House members.” (Seriously)
