Watching the Frontline story about the Iowa newspaper. It’s the Storm Lake Times. The paper won the Pulitzer in 2017, and the reaction in the conservative town was people canceling their subscriptions because of the national recognition.

the fate of President Biden’s vaccine mandate will be decided by a court dominated by conservatives.

The New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a stay against the requirement earlier this month, and further instructed the Biden administration to “take no steps to implement or enforce” it, finding that the states and businesses challenging the rule “show a great likelihood of success on the merits.”

The Biden administration will now issue its response to that order in the 6th Circuit. The Cincinnati-based court has 16 judges: 11 appointed by Republican presidents and five by Democratic presidents. Six of the judges were appointed by former President Donald Trump.

re: #7 retired cynic

Because there’s a bunch of bass-ackward know nothing extremists who are upset that public health policy favors getting everyone vaccinated against a disease that’s already killed over 750,000 Americans, this court will figure that there’s a good chance it should uphold blocking the mandate.

That’s some bass-ackward logic and reasoning, given that the US Supreme Court has upheld vaccination mandates in past. It again shows that the GOP are a bunch of extremists who aren’t pro life. They’re anything but.

…being so vindictive he fucked up bridge traffic bad enough that someone died rather than make it to a hospital is actually a pretty baller move if he was trying to get in with Trumpists.

But instead he’s doing the whole Lady Macbeth thing.

Just substitute “PC” for “woke” in most statements by dickholes like Maher and what you get is the same tired arguments that they’ve been making for years, the theme of which is “Dems/liberals are being too mean to white men by not giving them a pass for being racist asshats.”

Unfortunately too many white guys and gals share that view. Bill Maher has been right on Trump from day one; on most other issues, not so much. But he does reflect the feeling of too many voters who we need and who are persuadable — and for that we have to improve our messaging to attract these people back into our fold.

Sigh. I don’t know — I’m not in communications; it’s not my forte. It’s challenging when the other side has a whole set of media propaganda platforms excelling in disinformation and the MSM is happy to assist in promoting these lies.

Maybe flooding the media with ads touting the benefits from the BIF and that 94% of House Republicans objected to it. And also developing a companion negative campaign to tear down the GOP. If we could get BBB through too that would be an even stronger argument on how Democrats help ordinary people while the GOP abandons us.

Also have to have some way to tell voters that Hawley, Cruz, and Rubio are working for our enemies by interfering with government appointments — that they are malevolently stopping our ability to conduct foreign policy. Unfortunately, the Trump cult, 74 million strong, love this destruction.

Picard wasn’t bad, but it was a bit….underwhelming is probably the best word I could use. God love Sir Stewart, but he was getting too old to play an action star in Nemesis and he’s not gotten any younger in the years since. And it’s obvious why Spiner was right to think continuing to play Data as an ageless android wasn’t going to be feasible much longer.

I enjoyed both Picard and Discovery. My practice is to sign up for the service for one or 2 months, binge watch both series, and then drop the service until next year.

I don’t dislike any of the new Star Trek, but I have issues with each one. Lower Decks is closest to what I expect from Trek that’s not the Enterprise crew but I really don’t need to be hit over the head with fan service and a fire-hose of references. Discovery is one minute it’s great, and the next it’s “really?”

I know Stewart refused to do Picard unless there was social commentary, but I feel like they tried to jam too much of it into a single season and it was done in a somewhat ham-fisted manner, and there was a lot of canon-be damned in service of that ham-fistedness. (Not nearly as much as neck-bearded man-children on Youtube rant about though).

I think part of the problem is all of the new Trek shows have like 15 producers listed in the credits. There’s a committee and not a Trekkie-Showrunner.

Picard was fine, but I think my enjoyment of it mostly arose from nostalgia.

Didn’t like the first season of ST:D. Too much Klingon (plot and language.) Season 2 was much better. Then season 3 started and after watching the first episode I sort of gave up on it.

Have been watching Foundation. It’s ok.

All three shows suffer from the same problem. They want to be whodunnits .

Simple plots get drug out for 10 episodes simply by only telling part of plot, bit by bit, with some mystery left to late in the season that would do better just being revealed off the top.

That kind of story telling really bugs me.

It’s an easy way to build tension. But it is too easy and the writers end up not really being good mystery writers.

Amazon has two big-budget series coming out.

Wheel of Time, starting next month.

And then their still untitled Tolkien series, coming 22 Sep’22.

I fear they will step on each other.

A great deal of fantasy is all Tolkien-derivative anyway.

Amazon is spending a whole lot of money on their Tolkien project. But I’m afraid the fantasy genre is getting far too played-out.

Between Marvel and DC running their character arcs into the ground with who knows how many reboots over the next few years, it is hard to care about any of the long running characters (e.g. Batman.)

There is a shallowness to super-hero shows that I find quite off-putting. Of course the “comic books” were mostly all for juveniles anyway, with some later ones intended for a more adult audience.

Anyway, I’m hoping Amazon is not going to go for the cheap whodunnit route for their Tolkien series. We already know who the guilty party is (Sauron) and what he did (made magical rings and one master ring and turned kings of men to evil.) There isn’t really a mystery there. So if Amazon is going to have a whodunnit in that series they are going to have to create a subplot with new characters.

There is, and the horse’s mouth has spoken on this, a new Babylon 5 series in the works. I hope it can make it to the screen. So many good ideas die by a thousand cuts from the suits.

Programming note:

For what it’s worth, I just sent a massive $7 donation to LGF (don’t spend it all in one place).

It is my disbursement from a class-action lawsuit over milk price fixing in Nebraska.

The way they did the disbursements was with an on-line debit card, which when I called they say you can only download to a smartphone. For some reason (they don’t want to disburse the money) you can’t download the information to a PC, and they make it virtually impossible to get the information (it took me over an hour to donate the whole $7 on GoFundMe).

Calling the help line to the disbursement centre was no help: They would mail you a plastic card for 50% of the settlement.

I really hate how companies and such are intentionally leaving rural areas behind (or trying to screw us with massive credit card fees). Another notch in my post on why I despise libertarian capitalism.

The effect here was everyone eliminated credit cards. Except businesses right along Interstate 80 catering to travellers, no one here takes credit cards any more.

The notion that more and more outrageous behavior from them peels off support I haven’t seen any evidence of yet. In fact it seems support has only grown and even encouraged white females to join in on the vulgarity and menace.

Texas Tech radio announcers removed for next game after criticism of Big 12 officiating vs. Iowa State

Texas Tech football’s radio play-by-play announcer Brian Jensen and color analyst John Harris have been removed from announcing the Red Raiders’ Saturday game against Oklahoma State in response to on-air comments during their Nov. 13 game against Iowa State. The Big 12 issued a public reprimand of the announcers Wednesday evening.

Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said the comments made by the announcers “were contrary to expected levels of respect and professionalism.”

“I understand the roles of the play-by-play and color analyst,” Bowlsby said in a statement. “However as University representatives they also have an obligation to adhere to Conference policy regarding comments about game officials.

“Questioning the integrity of Conference officials and specifically calling out members of the officiating crew is well beyond appropriate and permissible behavior.”

Harris and Jensen fucked around and found out: They had denounced, and challenged, Bowlsby by name during the game. (Harris, incidentally, is known as “Wrong Yard Harris” within the business, for his consistent habit of misreading yard markers and miscalculating yardage). There is a mighty howl coming from the ever turbulent bowels of the Lubbock gentry over this, since Wrong Yard and Jensen are yokel celebrities. The masses are screaming “cancel culture” and “censorship” among other inanitities. It is amazing that people who literally worship business do not understand what it means for the Big 12 to have a contract with these goofs.

re: #53 Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus

Amazon has two big-budget series coming out.

Wheel of Time, starting next month.

And then their still untitled Tolkien series, coming 22 Sep’22.

I fear they will step on each other.

A great deal of fantasy is all Tolkien-derivative anyway.

Amazon is spending a whole lot of money on their Tolkien project. But I’m afraid the fantasy genre is getting far too played-out.

Between Marvel and DC running their character arcs into the ground with who knows how many reboots over the next few years, it is hard to care about any of the long running characters (e.g. Batman.)

There is a shallowness to super-hero shows that I find quite off-putting. Of course the “comic books” were mostly all for juveniles anyway, with some later ones intended for a more adult audience.

Anyway, I’m hoping Amazon is not going to go for the cheap whodunnit route for their Tolkien series. We already know who the guilty party is (Sauron) and what he did (made magical rings and one master ring and turned kings of men to evil.) There isn’t really a mystery there. So if Amazon is going to have a whodunnit in that series they are going to have to create a subplot with new characters.

There is, and the horse’s mouth has spoken on this, a new Babylon 5 series in the works. I hope it can make it to the screen. So many good ideas die by a thousand cuts from the suits.

Wheel of Time starts tomorrow.

“We can pass bills that help all Americans.”

Why Do Voters Like Democratic Policies but Dislike Democrats?

At the end of the focus groups, Barefoot asked the women if they would have changed their vote if the bipartisan infrastructure bill had passed before Election Day. Over 90% said no. One woman asked: “What does that have to do with anything?” Put in other words, for these voters, the issues aren’t so important. It’s Democrats’ attitudes, especially those of Democrats on the far left, that matter.

Make sure all your neighbors know the BIF is spending billions on rural broadband. Don’t let them think your governor had anything to do with it.

Like the Rural Electrification Project, when there’s no profit in the expansion (no way even to break even), the government needs to step in. The difference is that people like Eisenhower and the progressive/liberal Republicans were still part of the party and working to promote the general welfare.

It’s not really that. When every US media outlet is pushing the same message - Democrats are too woke, they think you’re racist, they’re not like you - Democrats will never be able to ‘listen to the concerns of voters’. Because the ‘concerns of voters’ are decided by CNN and the NYT, and those ‘concerns’ are that Democrats exist.

OTOH, I used work at a small window tinting business with a guy who was drawing disability after an accident at the plant; he was best friends with the owner and got paid under the table. When we went out on jobs and the screen didn’t quite fit the window he’d just say “piss on it, it’s good enough.” Again, he was welding stuff at Clinton.

Kennedy and his ilk don’t really care about the candidate’s youth activities. And they also don’t really care about her shoplifting arrest.

All they care about is triggering their base.

And unfortunate for us, we’re now looking at a scenario in which half of the US voters are on the verge of going headlong into some sort of far right dystopia.

All of American politics is a war for the muddled middle.

That the GOP Senators have successfully blocked so many Biden nominees, for example, is totally missed on the average voter. Because they don’t care about those kinds of things.

Among those assisting are the Nebraska State Patrol, Nebraska National Guard and 27 fire departments. Firefighters have worked 16-hour shifts.

If the weather cooperates, the state expects to turn firefighting over to local departments on Thursday, Imler said. Smoke will likely be visible from the burn area for weeks or until significant rain occurs, Imler said.

I have a crabapple tree in my front yard. It’s very popular with the birds right now, as a plentiful source of food as winter approaches. This morning, I was sitting in my office, idly noting the crowds of birds coming and going from the tree, when all of a sudden, all the birds on the tree scatter in every direction. It looked like a feathery bomb had gone off. I was curious, but only for a second; as soon as I went to look closer, a hawk came in and parked himself on the tree. Clearly, he thought the crabapple tree was a plentiful source of food, for an entirely different reason than the other birds. After a few seconds, no doubt nursing his disappointment that he didn’t get an easy meal, he flew off again.

English uses a subject-verb-object syntactic order (‘I eat pizza’), but the most common syntactic order of all the world’s languages is subject-object-verb (‘I pizza eat’). The rarest order, found in less than 0.5% of all languages, is object-subject-verb (‘Pizza I eat’).

German has the ability to flip that to stress the first word. “Ich bin müde” (I am tired) can be rendered “Müde bin ich” when you want to say that you are really tired.

Other languages have cases and declinations that allow you to shift the subject-verb-object order around and still have those elements identified.

“Throw grandfather down the stairs his hat” does not work in English because we lack the ability to identify grandfather as the indirect object (recipient) of the action rather than the direct object (the thing being thrown) namely the hat.

The Virginia race was decided by less than 2%. So this suggests that it could have made a difference in the results there.

From the link (it’s a short article)

What Barefoot discovered is that while most of the women overwhelmingly agreed with the Democrats on policy, when asked about which party had cultural values closer to theirs, the Republicans won. And when they voted, the cultural values won out. One issue that was important to them was education. One of the women said that, after they were forced to sit at home and be de facto teachers for a year , to hear Terry McAuliffe say that they should butt out of education was a huge insult. School closures were also a big deal. They wanted their kids to go to Real School, not Zoom School, virus or no virus. Also, they were afraid of the kids being indoctrinated. That is hardly a surprise given that the remaining Koch brother was secretly funding conservative groups to push this idea hard. And then there is critical race theory.

Well, considering that, for most models of self-checker, the scales in the “bagging area” seem to be calibrated to weigh items down to the molecular level, probably not much. Though I guess potential rippers-off can just revert to the classic manual backup method; i.e. just pocket stuff…

I’m definitely of two minds about self-checkout machine: on one hand, they’re handy for quickly buying a few items: OTOH, if there is anything else you have do (check coupons, do a delivery, etc.) - you still need to interact with a human.

I use the self checkout all the time and have had very few problems. It is SO much faster than waiting for a cashier it isn’t even close, and in my neck of the woods in central MA they get pretty much constant use.

Edit: even better than the self checkout is the little mobile scanner you bring with you and just scan items as you put them in your cart so you don’t have to scan anything at the register. Technology can be your friend.

When my wife and I were in Chicopee a couple years ago, we didn’t have any trouble in grocery stores.

Our problem was bank ATMs: None would take our ATM cards because they didn’t have the little embedded chip (magnetic stripe only). We had to go out to Longmeddow to find a bank which would take our cards.
