The Social Democrats edged out Merkel’s right of center party, but with only 26% of the vote compared to their 24%, so both parties will negotiate with two smaller parties to try to form a government. news.yahoo.com

2/3 through “Peril”, I came across this gem on a January 19 conversation between McCarthy and Trump:

“I don’t know what happened to you in the last two months,” McCarthy said. “You’re not the same as you were for the last four years”,

You’ve done good things and you want that to be your legacy. Call Joe Biden.”

Kevin is kidding, isn’t he? This is exactly what Trump has always been. Bill Maher (who is widely detested here) had been saying from almost day one that Trump would not exit office willingly. OTOH, maybe it really is Giuliani and members of the Federalist Society who led him(willingly) into this evil plot to destroy our democracy.

That is how a multi-party system works. No party has ruled there with an absolute majority wince the 1950’s and even that was two “sister” parties, the Christian Democrats and its smaller partner, Bavaria’s Christian Socialists.

If we introduced proportional representation so that small parties could get into Congress, our presidential elections could work somewhat like that. In fact, I’m pretty sure that when the Constitution was drafted, the founders thought most presidents would be elected by Congress.

re: #279 JOE 🥓

My sister’s mother in law knew how to make borscht and it was so good with that scoop of sour cream in the center.

When I was a young bride, Zedushka’s relatives in Jerusalem (where we were living at that time) told me that he LOVED beet borscht so every Passover for about 20 years I made a big pot of borscht, even though I and all my kids hated it.

Then one year when I was working full time, I decided that it was too much of a bother and I asked Z if he would mind if I did not make it. And he said “fine with me I hate that stuff!”

When I picked my jaw up from the floor I asked why he never said anything for so many years and he always ate it with gusto?

So he said “I may not like it but it does prevent me from making really smelly farts.”

There’s no political gain in seeking the approval of bigots anymore for her. They’ve already rejected her for not standing with a failed, seditious, former-President.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is taking back her previous condemnation of gay marriage.

On Sunday, the Wyoming Republican expressed public support for LGBTQ rights for the first time, saying her previous stance was “wrong.” Cheney’s past comments on her belief “in the traditional definition of marriage” in 2013 caused a rift with her sister Mary, who is married to a woman. (Her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, came out in support of same-sex marriage in 2009.)

“How do you defend what you did?” 60 Minutes’ Lesley Stahl asked Cheney in an interview that aired Sunday evening.

“I was wrong. I was wrong. I love my sister very much,” Cheney responded.

well we thought we’d be done with solar for a long time after this weekend

it was not to be. (it never is)

we got our new third panel
now is the first time we’ve actually got 3 working at once and we know it

first we bought two more identical controllers
same picture, same description, same model number
nope, not the same.
we thought our panels were bad again but no - different software.
one of them is missing the effing critical amps display that we specifically were looking for.
so back it goes
meanwhile we’ll piggyback the three good panels on two controllers.

but wait, some good news

we retested the two bad panels
we find that one of them might actually still be good
no idea why - i was real careful with the testing, took pics of the meter and the company agreed and warranty replaced it.

anyway we’re gonna hook it in and leave it on the ground for a while and see.
if it is good we’ll mount it to the roof and maybe not try to fix #5.
because 4 is more than enough to make maybe not KWatts (like another sun-harnessing lizard) but at least tens of watts (actually a couple hundred)

the redesigned panel

so if you include people who dont vote often, youngkin is still behind

A new Monmouth poll in Virginia finds Terry McAuliffe (D) leading Glenn Youngkin (R) in the governor’s race, 48% to 41% among registered voters.

A range of potential electorate scenarios shows McAuliffe ahead by anywhere from 3 points (48% to 45%) to 7 points (50% to 43%) depending on the likely voter model. Youngkin does better when more low-propensity voters are included in the mix.

Specifically, McAuliffe has a lead among voters who have cast ballots in every general election since 2016 (51% to 44%) and those who participated in 4 of the last 5 general elections (49% to 43%). Among those who voted in only 2 or 3 elections and are considered less reliable voters, the race is much closer (44% for McAuliffe and 42% for Youngkin).

ps - oh no, do not coast Virginia. Vote!

On the one hand, Youngkin needs low propensity Trump voters to turn out, so he needs to be a full throated Magat. OTOH, McAuliffe is trying to tie Youngkin to Trump to turn off suburban voters who detest him, so Youngkin has to keep Trump at arm’s length. That’s a tough needle to thread!

Antivax loonies specialize in bizarre false analogies as they desperately try to believe they’re doing the right thing while being a menace to public health and the economy.

It’s all about telling themselves that they have not made a terrible mistake, as other people just like them say that they have made a terrible mistake while an oxygen hose is temporarily keeping them alive as they say their goodbyes.

Yes. Not just unenrolled voters, but they even allow same day party change.
Primary elections in Wyoming

HIGHLIGHTS
Wyoming law stipulates that parties conduct open primaries for congressional and state-level offices. While a voter must be affiliated with a political party in order to participate in its primary election, any voter, regardless of previous partisan affiliation, may change his or her affiliation on the day of the primary.

I’m cynical about her sudden change in belief, (Edit: after years of being estranged from her lesbian sister. Frankly, it’s purely political - her dad came out in favor of marriage equality around the time he left office, but what let’s not forget what Churchill said about Hitler invading Hell..

I have no idea if my family is antivax or not, but my dad has been known to take colloidal silver for his “health”, and my mom was still listening to Glenn Beck when we were still speaking about 3 yrs ago. So I am guessing they probably aren’t vaccinated. Maybe. My sister has MS, I would hope she is, but my parents’ decades of wingnut madness has rubbed off on her too. I haven’t heard from any of them since about Nov of 2018. Lots of us have lost our families to this, to me, that’s why so many people deserve an ass beating.

Not that I can claim any great expertise on the matter, but I’ve always thought Wyoming was one of those Party Machine states, where the Machine keeps tight control over the political process (and one where TFVP Dick is an important cog) - and Liz Cheney (having learned her lesson years back) is another Machine stalwart, and so has a lot of advantages come primary time.

My guess - worth every cent we pay for it - is that Liz is likely to have to face some Trump-humper in the GOP primary, win handily, and go back to DC in January.

There was a post that went viral not long ago from a doctor listing OTHER medications that were developed and/or tested using fetal tissue that patients should theoretically want to avoid if they reject the Covid-19 vaccine on that basis. As I recall, Tylenol was one of the drugs mentioned.

re: #69 Dopamine Fish

Earlier in the year, my father and father-in-law sat at my kitchen table, badmouthing Dr. Fauci and talking about QAnon / The Big Lie propaganda. It’s disappointing to see a man who was a giant in my mind in my childhood reduced to a stupid conspiracy nutjob.

it is threads like this that remind me how lucky i am.
my family never discusses this stuff, because it’s not necessary

for us, ‘normal’ is trying to live a long and healthy life.
for ourselves, our children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces and on and on.
and for our parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and on and on and on

one niece (25 yo) had a short dalliance with maybe i wont get vaccinated.
clearly due to the influence of one close friend.
through no pressure from family she came to see that her position would mean she couldnt see her dad (immuno), mom (in healthcare and wouldnt risk her patients). let alone 90+yo grandparents or immuno-compromised auntie.

was her friend’s ‘approval’ worth that much? well, the anti-vax arguments even as evaluated by a 25 year old didnt hold up under scrutiny. young, easily influenced and still figured it out mostly on her own.

our family is part of the larger family of everyone.
we are not selfish.
we are aware and conscious.
conscious of our effect on and how we can be affected by each other.

we cooperate in society because we are civilized.
we protect others by protecting ourselves, we protect ourselves by protecting others.

that means mostly staying away from everyone.
because so many are not civilized and you can’t tell by looking.

here’s one list:

The hospital’s form includes a list of 30 common medications that used fetal cell lines during research and development. The list includes acetaminophen, albuterol, aspirin, ibuprofen, Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, Tums, Lipitor, Senokot, Motrin, Maalox, Ex-Lax, Benadryl, Sudafed, Preparation H, Claritin, Prilosec, and Zoloft.

from becker’s hospital review

becuase:

An attestation form from Conway (Ark.) Regional Health System asks employees requesting a religious exemption from the hospital’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate to confirm they will not use certain everyday medications, such as Benadryl, Sudafed and Tylenol, in alignment with their sincerely held religious belief.

Since the mandate was announced, 66 employees have left Brewer-based Northern Light Health because of the vaccine requirement, according to system spokesperson Karen Cashman. That’s out of about 12,500 employees across the system. [.005%]


Over recent weeks, 58 of MaineHealth’s 23,000 staff members have resigned and cited the vaccination requirement as among the reasons for their decision, system spokesperson Caroline Cornish told Becker’s. That represents only 0.0025 percent of the system’s workforce.

Not that I can claim any great expertise on the matter, but I’ve always thought Wyoming was one of those Party Machine states, where the Machine keeps tight control over the political process (and one where TFVP Dick is an important cog) - and Liz Cheney (having learned her lesson years back) is another Machine stalwart, and so has a lot of advantages come primary time.

My guess - worth every cent we pay for it - is that Liz is likely to have to face some Trump-humper in the GOP primary, win handily, and go back to DC in January.

Harriet Hageman (R), who was endorsed by Donald Trump in her challenge to Rep. Liz Cheney (R), called Trump “the weakest candidate” in the 2016 Republican primary and referred to him as “somebody who is racist and xenophobic,” the New York Times reports.

“Ms. Hageman’s yearslong journey from Never-Trumpism to declaring him the best president of her lifetime is one of the most striking illustrations yet of the political elasticity* demonstrated both by ambitious Republicans in the Trump era and by the former president himself, who has relentlessly asserted his dominance over leaders of his party.”

The cultural prerequisite of being an empire is just ignoring that your second-class subjects’ labor is what makes you wealthy and powerful. There’s this feedback loop of guys that make money off cheap imported labor and guys that genuinely believe that foreigners took their jobs: the former want cheap labor to maximize their profits, but they also need a system where the cheap labor can’t argue their worth and the people getting undercut don’t blame the people creating the demand for cheap foreign labor; the latter desperately want to believe that the purpose of a nation is to make their lives better at the expense of everyone else, which is why they’re wiling to simultaneously live on cheap goods and services powered by foreign labor and resent foreign labor.

This isn’t sustainable, culturally or economically, it’s an arc of descent.

The Tories have taken up puffed-up nationalism…and Brexit…because it diverts attention from how their policy has not only failed, but stolen the commonwealth of the nation in the process. “If it weren’t for THOSE people, you would have better social services and jobs, and when we kick them out you’ll get the money” is bullshit, but they have to commit to that bullshit because the alternative is to acknowledge their system didn’t work. Brexit wasn’t even supposed to happen, it was just supposed to be an yet another ongoing stab-in-the-back myth where Britain would still be Great if it weren’t for Brussels and Labour.

Of course they’re fucking up: they’re incapable of reconciling their authentic Little Britain bigotry with their preferred parasitic form of international capitalism, so they’re just making shit up as they bluster along. Tories are the dog that caught the car—they now get to build that nationalist redistribution scheme they were promising (a kind of socialism, but only for the right kind of people) would be possible when the foreigners were booted—and would rather eat and shit aluminium and fiberglass than admit they don’t know what to do with the car they caught.

I have no doubt that Cheney never personally objected to SSM — like all good Republicans, she toed the party line so she could retain official GOP support for her runs for office.

You have to say you believe a lot of absurd lies to be a Republican in good standing. It was just the big lie meant to end our democracy for a worthless loser that was too far for Cheney. Sadly, too few Republicans seem to have a “too far” that they won’t go beyond.

And Noem can shove that “ignoring liberals” nonsense right back up her ass: if any NY Governor got caught out in an overt pressuring situation, the Press would be all over it like white on rice: Kristi Noem ever read the NY Post??

I think apostasy is especially threatening to many right wing nut jobs because at some level they know they are trafficking in lies and bullshit. That makes any defectors from their ranks (or even from less extreme right wing views) uniquely threatening.

For many years (decades) the term in polite circles was “deconversion”. Among the religious the term “apostasy” has a special bit of sting that they like.

I’m suspect the current trend to use “deconstruction” among those deconverting arises directly from the foodies use of the word. See my second tweet.

Kentucky has landed the single largest economic development project in its history, a $5.8 billion investment by Ford Motor Corp. and South Korea-based SK Innovation to build two battery manufacturing plants in Glendale in Hardin County that are expected to employ 5,000 people.

The announcement Monday puts Kentucky at the forefront of the automotive industry’s future with electric vehicles, said an elated Gov. Andy Beshear.

The project, said Beshear, “will transform our economy, creating a better Kentucky with more opportunities for our families for generations. Our economy is on fire —and now, it’s electric. Never again will we be thought of as a flyover state. Our time is now. Our future is now.”

Beshear said the $5.8 billion investment is more than triple the previous largest single investment announced in Kentucky and that the jobs created will double the number of any previous announcement in the state. The first plant is expected to open in 2025 and the second would follow in 2026.

The 5,000 announced jobs are full-time jobs at the plants and do not include construction, supplier or dealership jobs.

Covid continues in Alaska:

Alaska reports 21 COVID-19 deaths, and now has among the nation’s highest rates for recent fatalities

Health officials also reported a total of 3,878 new infections in residents over a 3-day period between Friday and Sunday, including a near-record of 1,575 resident cases reported for Sunday.

As of Monday, 62.9% of eligible Alaskans had received at least one dose of vaccine and 58.9% were considered fully vaccinated. Alaska ranked 30th in the country for vaccination rates, a slight uptick since last week.

Statewide, 9.18% of the tests conducted last week came up positive for the virus. Health experts say anything over 5% indicates there isn’t enough testing going on.

My wife and I have reservations for Pfizer booster shots on Friday.

As someone who’s actually read postmodernists…including really obnoxious poorly structured ones…that is not an effective simulation of postmodernism because postmodernism isn’t one thing with one tone any more than Modernism is. If I’m generous—and I shouldn’t be, given the kind of clout-chasers that use stuff like this to discount everything that denies their own sense of objectivity and then in the breach turned out to just be assholes—the “algorithmically generated postmodern article” vaguely resembles an 90s-era grad schooler attempting to cobble together a postmodern piece at the last minute.

If you are playacting as someone disgusted by postmodernism, it will absolutely provide you with sufficient jimmie-rustling jargon that you can continue to be mad at the guy you made up—that’s Richard Dawkins career now, and it certainly pays the bills. But we’re in 2021 and the people who beat this “anti-post-modern” drum the hardest have spent two decades demonstrating that there were always arguing in bad faith: postmodernism was just the boogeyman phrase they used to attack any concept that they as paleoconservatives are uncomfortable with.

(They have applied this exact same moral panic campaign to Boas and “cultural relativism.” You will be shocked, shocked, that their alternative position is that their culture is superior and its values are not relative…a position adopted while blowing small children apart in the Islamic Middle East in the name of “secular” European morals.)

There are a lot of postmodernists I don’t like…but bad faith criticism is not miscible with good faith criticism. That Wendy Doniger is far too effusive in her interpretations of Sanskrit literature does not make her condemnation by Hindu nationalists justified. That Derrida is just a loop of contentiousness does not mean that Jordan Peterson has a point beyond projecting his anxiety on the world. Shallow modernists—people with one central idea that just want their axiom accepted—have a lot of motives to ding a model of inquiry that questions core axioms and accusing the questioners of being both unserious and sinister.

The other thing I’d point out is that “postmodernism” is the scapegoat for the distinct quality drop in academic publications prompted by publish or perish and tying career (and thus compensation) to volume of work. There exist countless shitty journals with no proofing because people needed to publish and that’s the fastest way to attain capacity; peer review is borked because academics both act in complicity in allowed other academics to do shoddy work and keep their job, but also because the power dynamic of reviewer/reviewee leads to nepotism and sometimes outright extortion. If you acknowledge that universities operating like a business is creating worse research because there’s not enough time or money; that grant givers are frequently fishing for research that’s revolutionary-sounding rather than incremental…then academia as an outgroup of capitalist structure is a failure: competition for resources didn’t create better quality outcomes.

I see this crop up on this board periodically and…why the fuck is anyone caving into this particular right wing talking point? Are social scientists capable of pretension and tangled language? Yes.

But we’re now in the destroyed world that the tweed-wearing old guard warned about…but the extinction event came from the opposite direction. College doesn’t mean anything because they’ve become a real estate portfolio with a day care attached. The vast majority of people cannot differentiate the validity of a stray social media post from a peer-reviewed publication, and that happened because of a heady mix of the internet and the cultural agenda of (mostly conservative) grifters that needed there to be no critical thinking skills. The idea that before the postmodern there was structure and rising action to society was always false, but it was rendered especially false when the advocates of that position started inventing reasons why white developed nations were allowed to kill people in non-white undeveloped nations as a kind of cultural self-defense.

Anti-postmodernism is a moral panic that claimed, and still claim, that postmodern concepts will destroy the ability of people to know “what is true”…but the forces that have actually destroyed meaning and epistemology in the current day world are the same people that decried postmodernism.

Per worldometer, among the 10 states with the lowest mortality rate by total population are Alaska and Nebraska. Is it just that those states tend to have a more spread out population with fewer interactions with visitors from outside the state? Both are very red states.

My wife and I have reservations for Pfizer booster shots on Friday.

Remember, 1 in every 7 residents have had confirmed Covid-19 diagnoses’.

I posted my comment before seeing yours — so for Alaska it seems that the problem is that the virus, which had previously been more under control, is now surging in your state.

This. The right wing nut jobs who are whining about how the caricature of postmodernism they have in their tiny minds is destroying the very ideas of truth and objective reality are invariably the ones actually pushing propaganda designed to erase the ideas of truth and objective reality.

This might be the core instance of right wing projection from which all others can trace ancestry.

It’s the Rush Limbaugh business model. There’s a lot of money to be made by giving the assholes of America more justification to be assholes.

Examples like this are one of many ways to show that free market fundamentalism* is bullshit.

Fuck him. Most of us support vaccine requirements because we want this shit to end sooner rather than later, with less suffering and death than would be required by the virus burning through tens of millions of the unvaccinated.

But it would not surprise me to learn that fetal tissue lines were used prior to Tylenol’s approval by the FDA in 19771955.

As I mentioned above, 1 in 7 Alaskans have had confirmed cases of Covid-19. We started out as a leader in masking and distancing but it seems like everyone got tired of taking precautions this summer. It doesn’t help that the Governor and Anchorage Mayor are strong anti-maskers and are not interested in any type of preventative precautions. Got to keep the businesses open. In addition, there was a strong push to open the schools this fall. Every day there are reports of students being infected with covid yet the schools remain open. They have quarantined several individual classrooms because of multiple infections in the room.

The State has made a fantastic effort in getting the vaccines distributed throughout the State. There is no excuse for not being able to get vaccinated.

Looking at the numbers shows the virus is distributed state-wide:

There were immortal cell lines that existed prior to the discovery of restriction enzymes, which is what I guess you are referring to when you say recombinant DNA techniques.
