not sad to see Cuomo gone from CNN. We got two for the price of one.

Chris Cuomo was terrible; he kept bringing back the same liars over and over so he could pretend to “dunk” on them. I’d say “good riddance” except CNN will only get worse.

Sigh. I find myself wishing I could lock the male conservative judges in a room for a month with a recording of a crying baby playing non-stop and a loop of Peppa Pig on a TV that can’t be turned off.

To be clear, I love kids. But I don’t think those assholes really understand the experiences of many parents.

That’s what your undocumented nanny is for. If she complains you aren’t paying her (and it has to be a her) enough (or at all), you can just call up ICE and they’ll take her inconvenient complaint of wage theft and deport it (along with her).

Dr. Oz Hopes to Replace Rand Paul as Biggest Quack in Senate (The Borowitz Report at The New Yorker)

PENNSYLVANIA (The Borowitz Report)—Explaining his decision to enter the political sphere, Dr. Mehmet Oz said that he hopes to oust Rand Paul as the biggest quack in the United States Senate.

Oz said that Paul, a former ophthalmologist, has shown an impressive obliviousness about medicine while serving in Washington, but added, “I think I can out-quack him.”

“In the many times he’s grilled Dr. Fauci, has he ever asked him about the health benefits of magic coffee beans or umckaloabo-root extract?” Oz said. “I think America deserves a senator who will ask those tough questions.”

Paul, speaking to reporters, seemed unfazed by Oz’s determination to supplant him as the Senate’s top quack.

“I respect Dr. Oz as a fellow-charlatan, and the competition can only light a fire under me to become a bigger charlatan myself,” he said. “But if, in the end, he winds up besting me, I’ve had a good run.”

It ended with her leaving her practice, the only full-time doctor in the town in northern Ontario.

Ontario doctor leaving practice after unfounded claims she denied care to unvaccinated patients

Storm of abuse on social media got ‘very nasty,’ mayor says

The only full-time family physician in a small northern Ontario town says she feels personally attacked after a spate of COVID-19 misinformation and anti-vaccination sentiment set off by a town councillor.

Dr. Gretchen Roedde, 69, says, as a result, she plans to close her practice in Latchford on March 31.

Latchford Mayor George Lefebvre says Coun. Scott Green made a mistake when he wrote a Facebook post claiming Roedde wasn’t seeing unvaccinated patients.

Lefebvre says the post was unwarranted and unleashed criticism and anger against the doctor on social media.

“It became very nasty. People should not use social media to express their concerns,” said Lefebvre.

Please Don’t Elect Dr. Oz—He’s a Disgrace to Our Profession (Daily Beast, November 30, 2021)

Dr. Oz is running for Senate in Pennsylvania. “I greet this prospect with the same enthusiasm I’d have for contracting dysentery,” writes Dr. Daniel Summers.

What’s been even more troubling during the pandemic is his willingness to speak in favor of treatments like hydroxychloroquine that have no merit for the care of COVID patients, going as far as touting the drug on Fox & Friends. As I’ve previously written, he even appeared on Fox and “suggested that the mere 2-3 percent increase in COVID-19 mortality that would come from reopening schools nationwide might be a worthwhile trade-off.” Medical misinformation is literally killing people, and it is unconscionable that anyone who should know better would contribute to it. And Oz most certainly should and does know better.

Major League Baseball enforced its first work stoppage in more than 25 years when the sport’s collective bargaining agreement expired Wednesday night and owners locked out players. MLB released a statement just after midnight on Thursday that said in part, “Simply put, we believe that an offseason lockout is the best mechanism to protect the 2022 season. We hope that the lockout will jumpstart the negotiations and get us to an agreement that will allow the season to start on time.” During the lockout, free agents will not be allowed to sign and teams will not be permitted to trade players who are part of the union.

MLB owners lock out players in first work stoppage since 1995 (forty-six minutes ago)

Because the patient can’t articulate what hurts, or how long it’s been hurting, or what kind of pain or discomfort, and the person who brings them in has only the vaguest description of when they noticed symptoms and why (“sometime between when I went to sleep and when I woke up he started making this noise I can’t properly imitate, and do his eyes look right, and he makes another noise when I touch him here and he didn’t want his breakfast…”)

One thing we should bear in mind when looking at the possible political ramifications to Roe being overturned is that before Obergefell, putting gay marriage on the ballot could be a crap shoot. That Repubs showed a talent for drawing out voters who otherwise might skip elections by playing on their personal opposition to gay marriage. By contrast, convincing people with no personal investment to show up to vote for gay marriage was always a heavy lift.

The GOP and this Supreme Court made it harder for families to adopt. They allow religious groups to discriminate against loving families that are LGBTQ and prefer hetero couples that are Christian.

Fulton v. City of Philadelphia.

The GOP and this Court do not give a flying fuck about mothers or babies that are live born. They’ve made this explicitly clear with every policy choice and decision they’ve made for more than 40 years. They care only that they can force women to carry to term when they lack the resources to get abortions on the down low. Millionaires and billionaires will always be able to get abortions for their mistresses to avoid out of wedlock love children. For everyone else, you have to pay through the nose to travel somewhere that does allow abortions.

In the US, black women are 4 times more likely to die from childbirth than white women and up to 17 times more likely in certain states. Black children are much more likely to die during childbirth or have severe health issues than white children.

Anti-abortion efforts here are trying to eliminate black people by attrition and promote white women to have more children (quiverfull effort) in a de-facto genocide. Plain and simple.

Once again, the right wing asshole zealots here are entirely guided by abject racism and gleefully utilize useful fools like Candace Owens who attempt to ingratiate themselves into the new order that is to come.

Horseshoe theory, since it’s the same endgame that the Christian fundamentalists seek - a revolution and End Times. Trump was their golden child because he sabotaged everything he touched and did so much damage in such a short time that it hastens the End Times in their eyes.

They think they come out on top at the end of the day, but it’s just hell awaiting all of them.

There were a number of hard-core Libertarian like Steve Bannon & Fourth Turning fans who supported Trump for that very reason: to bring it all crashing down so they could rebuild it in their image

Hypothetical question:
When Brett Kavanaugh was in high school if he’d sexually assaulted a girl while he was drunk and she got pregnant, do you think he would have tried to force her to have the child?
- asking for women who are victims of rape or incest and get pregnant.

Except that his family would have paid to have the girl go off and “visit her sick grandmother”…

The Seinfeld writer who gave the world Festivus reveals the origins of the holiday—invented by his father, not Frank Costanza, and featuring clocks and wailing children rather than the famous pole—which are pretty dark indeed.

Dan O’Keefe, who also worked on iconic shows such as Silicon Valley and Veep, joined The Daily Beast’s Fever Dreams podcast to talk about satire in the post-Trump age. But first, he gave hosts Will Sommer and Asawin Suebsaeng a surrealist tour through how Festivus came to be.

“I mean this in the nicest way possible: My father was an undiagnosed bipolar, severe alcoholic who nonetheless was extremely high-functioning and held down a job as an editor at the Reader’s Digest and had an advanced degree and was extremely erudite,” O’Keefe explains, noting he “came from an extremely working-class background, which he was constantly trying to make sure no one knew about—and in so doing, he reminded everyone of it constantly. I think the phrase is, ‘came up from nothing and brought it with him.’” O’Keefe’s father invented the holiday: “At one point he said it was an anniversary for his first date with my mom, but he also said a lot of crazy shit… so who knows?

The Guardian is reporting that Trump’s claims that he had no role in the events that took place the afternoon of 1/6 are pure bushwah.

Hecuba's daughter  Dec 2, 2021 • 8:26:30am

Susan Collins claimed yesterday that she favored a national law passed by Congress that protects a woman’s right to choose. On Lawrence last evening, Elizabeth Warren also favored that option, admitting that it does require eliminating the filibuster. There are 2 flaws with this approach:

1. The next time the GOP has control of the WH and Congress, that law would be overturned and replaced with legislation that might return the authority to the states or might ban abortion nationwide.
2. As we saw with voting rights, this SCOTUS is fine with asserting its power to declare existing legislation unconstitutional. I have no doubt that is exactly the path it would take to deprive women of their rights.

Our only hope is for at least 2 GOP justices to leave the Court and be replaced by Biden appointees before any ruling is issued. Maybe Clarence retiring as part of a plea deal to prevent Ginni from going to prison for her role in 1/6? Maybe Alito being forced to retire if it turns out that he also was involved in the plot, as liar Sydney Powell suggested ?

This would be a problem if Democrats had 100 Senators to pass it this time, and Republicans had 50 Senators + VP the next time. That’s how government works.

Republicans have demonstrated that they are 1. incapable of passing laws on their own at the national level and 2. incapable of overturning popular laws implemented by Democrats (see Obamacare)

There won’t be a “Republic of Gilead” overnight, but there will be mini ones popping up within a generation. Abortion bans will be first, followed soon after by bans on contraceptives because they’re “abortificants.” Healthcare providers will face requirements to report all confirmed pregnancies and live births, with any discrepancies subject to investigation and possible prosecution. Bounty hunters won’t just report abortions, they’ll be tasked with bringing back pregnant women who attempt to flee the state.

They came within one vote of overturning Obamacare; it was only Trump’s overt hostility to McCain(and McCain’s knowledge of his fatal illness) that saved the legislation.

The Democratic Justices all expressed their view that overturning Roe would discredit the Supreme Court as the bastion of honest judicial rulings. Sorry, guys, that was obvious over 100 years ago in 1901:

That decision prompted humorist Finley Peter Dunne to coin the line suggesting the Supreme Court really wasn’t an impartial bastion beyond politics but reflected the nation’s political mood.

Dunne wrote his Chicago newspaper pieces in the brogue of an imaginary Irish-American called Mr. Dooley. “No matter whether th’ Constitution follows th’ flag or not, ‘th Supreme Coort follows th’ iliction returns,″ he commented on a 1901 decision.

Occasionally there are justices who are concerned about true justice, but that is not the usual situation.

Our Senate is definitely based on geography and that is mandated by the Constitution. The House is based on population; it is the deliberate gerrymandering, primarily by Republicans in Republican-led states, that has led to the underrepresentation of Democrats. The fact there are more red states than blue states would be irrelevant in the House here if not for the malign gerrymandering.

Germans elect half of their 600 representatives (for a population of 86 million) proportionally: you vote for a particular party and they then name candidates based on the share of votes they receive.

That minimizes the ability of parties like the GOP to pack all the Democrats into a handful of districts that they win by landslides while the GOP carries the bulk by a few percent.

I guess my point really is that SCOTUS has never been seen as an objective evaluator of facts and law. We are now living in a hyper-partisan time when GOP judges represent a reactionary ideology and truth and justice are irrelevant to their decisions; and that has been true through much of our history. SCOTUS is just another front in the partisan battles; it is no different from the Senate or House and indeed, in these times, even worse, because they are lifetime appointments who cannot be evicted, except on the most heinous charges. We were spoiled because there was a time from the Warren Court through the 1990’s that most justices seemed interested in doing what was right; but the existence of the Federalist Society and its outsized legal presence ended that.

Texas woman arrested for pointing gun at a woman and her six month old child over a parking spot.

[Embedded content]

$60,000 bond…so at least she gets to feel a little financial consequence.

Oookay, so this reminds me of a story from Christmas 1988ish in Houston. My sister, who is tiny compared to me, went out to lunch with a friend at a restaurant in a shopping mall parking lot. She had her oldest kid with her. Oh, and yes, not to forget, my sister was wearing a mink stole (gift from MIL who was into that sort of thing). There were no parking spots to be found, so they were driving around, finally saw a spot, she was driving to take it and another woman grabbed it first. My sister was so frustrated, she threw her car into park, blocking the woman from getting out, hopped out of the car, and proceeded to march over to the other woman’s car and give her a tongue-lashing through her tinted glass windows about how she had a KID and on and on and on and on. Keep in mind, she looked like a 26 year old rich girl who had her mink stole out from the storage at Neiman Marcus for the three days of the year it’s cold enough in Houston to wear such a thing.

Finally, my sister tired of yelling, hopped back into her car and proceeded to find another parking space. They went to the restaurant (where they had a reservation) and since they had a kid, of course they were seated by the kitchen. HOWEVER, the person at the table next to them was…the other woman. Who ate quickly and left.

I told my father about this and he completely lost his shit. “Suppose the other woman had had a gun?” It was similar to what he told my brother a few years before that when he got sent to the back of the school lunch line at high school for cutting. “This is to train you not to cut at the Kmart because you don’t know what people are packing.”

re: #161 Hecuba’s daughter

Susan Collins claimed yesterday that she favored a national law passed by Congress that protects a woman’s right to choose. On Lawrence last evening, Elizabeth Warren also favored that option, admitting that it does require eliminating the filibuster. There are 2 flaws with this approach:

1. The next time the GOP has control of the WH and Congress, that law would be overturned and replaced with legislation that might return the authority to the states or might ban abortion nationwide.
2. As we saw with voting rights, this SCOTUS is fine with asserting its power to declare existing legislation unconstitutional. I have no doubt that is exactly the path it would take to deprive women of their rights.

Our only hope is for at least 2 GOP justices to leave the Court and be replaced by Biden appointees before any ruling is issued. Maybe Clarence retiring as part of a plea deal to prevent Ginni from going to prison for her role in 1/6? Maybe Alito being forced to retire if it turns out that he also was involved in the plot, as liar Sydney Powell suggested ?

Yep, and the Democrats need to make it clear, in every single election, that if Republicans are voted back into power they will make abortion illegal nationwide. Then if the voters give the GOP power, they’ll get what they deserve.

Any democracy is as strong or as weak as the institutions that underpin its edifice. When democracy is subverted it is the institutional reliability of the judicial system that is dismantled first. A grand sweep of history bears testimony to these maxims. Whenever judicial independence is undermined, tyranny, chaos and then anarchy, in that order, are its inevitable corollaries.

re: #218 jaunte

Everyone needs to understand that “putting up for adoption” is a feel-good shorthand for the reality, which would be dumping massive numbers of children into an already over-stressed system in which there are not enough adoptive families, not enough foster families, not enough caseworkers. The “conservative” solution for this will be for-profit orphanages, where the defenseless tenants will be at the mercy of the the worst kind of predators who take the job not for the low pay but for opportunity.

A bidness opportunity! Put those kiddies to work so that they learn the value of a job!

re: #196 Eclectic Cyborg

And therein lies the problem. Our representation is based on geography, not population. There are more red states than blue states. The math just doesn’t work.

re: #199 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

There was also a time when “rural state” did not automatically mean “red state”.

And as for the House, just look at Ohio, where GOP won only 56% of the overall votes but carried 12 of the 16 seats.

The more I think about this the more I realize that there is a real problem related to geography as EC has said. The GOP could have legitimately won all the Ohio seats if the population political preferences were evenly spread throughout the state. I’m not sure how to correct this; but there is definitely something wrong when the proportion of the legislators by party doesn’t reflect the proportion of the voters nationwide by party. And let’s never forget the monstrosity of the Electoral College where in 2 of the past 6 elections the winner of the popular vote lost; and a change of only about 40,000 votes would have resulted in a similar outcome in 2020.

NPR had the general counsel for Concerned Women for America on for an interview. Motherfucker argued it wasn’t about abortion policy. It was just about the sanctity of the Constitution. Also said, with a straight face, if Roe is overturned, there won’t be outright bans at the state level—just reasonable restrictions like Mississippi’s 15 week ban.

Twelve states have trigger laws that will ban most abortions the day the Court reverses Roe.

Forgot to add that the husband’s medical procedure for the pain blocking device is postponed because he’s got a really bad ear infection and is on antibiotics. He has to be a week out from the last dose before he can have that done. Doctors office is trying to fit him in before the end of the year. If not he has to go through the whole approval process again with new insurance for next year.

We live in an area dominated by one huge hospital corporation called WellStar. If you want to go outside that conglomerate you have a 40 minute ride to a hospital and many doctors outside the WellStar system are also a haul from here. WellStar no longer works with United Healthcare which is the provider for hubby’s Medicare plans. So he has til the 7th and I have til the 15th (I have Ambetter insurance and it’s crap) to find new insurance that will allow us to keep our doctors in place.

Having to deal with this while sick is not helpful. This has to be fixed, but I doubt it ever will be. I can’t get financial help because we have too much money saved up so we don’t lose our home and can meet monthly expenses. We literally can’t get help with hospital and doctor bills unless we drain our savings and are on the brink of bankruptcy. We have no retirement plan or anything but social security disability my husband gets. I was a full time parent for 20 yrs and my monthly check will be around 500 dollars a month when I turn 65.

This whole system is a clusterfuck unless you are rich and have gold plated insurance. You know, the stuff our tax dollars subsidize for our asshole elected officials. I’m in a mood.

Ole Jim Bob Duggar got smacked down by the federal court judge yesterday. Josh’s attorney tried to get Bobye Holt (wife of an “elder” of Jim Bob’s Independent Fundamental Baptist church, of which Jim Bob is also an “elder”) counted as “clergy” so that she couldn’t testify against Josh. Because she had the lowdown on Josh being a sex abuser against his sisters and another girl starting about when he was 12. The judge was having none of it, and in his written order allowing Bobye Holt to testify, said that Jim Bob was being “self-serving” and her testimony can be admitted. Oh yeah, Jim Bob is “not credible.”

A jury has been seated and testimony has started. Here’s an article about yesterday’s testimony, which included showing the jury graphic pictures of the child sexual abuse material downloaded. Oh, and Josh’s attorney’s defense is “Josh isn’t smart enough to partition a drive and install a second system.” My response: It’s easier than ever, we’re not talking 1996 or even 2006 and boy, this really is a smack in the face against home schooling. For her part, the federal attorney pointed out that Josh switched back and forth from the secret partition to the Windows system to send messages and suchlike.

I’d say the real problem is the Senate even more than the EC.

The Senate confirms:
- All judicial nominees
- Far too many other appointments (2 thousand or so??), more than just the heads of the departments.
- All ambassadorial appointments.

And let’s not forget the idiotic filibuster which is causing states representing a minority of the voting population to soft veto everything.
This allows for “tyranny of the minority” rather than just checking “tyranny of the majority”.

All the Senate served to do for the first few decades of its existence was to force a fake parity between slave states and free states, and put a lid on the conflict over slavery through a series of compromises, until the corrupt Supreme Court overruled everything in Dredd Scott, which ultimately led to the ascendancy of the Republicans and the War of Southern Aggression.

The magic dirt company (Black Oxygen Organics) closed down last week during American Thanksgiving. With a lot of people’s money, because people had prepaid to sell the dirt via a MLM. The Canadian government wasn’t letting them ship their dirt from a bog next to a landfill, and the US wasn’t letting them ship it over the border.

nbcnews.com

The next thing coming up in the wacky world of MLMs is how a whole team called “WFABB” (Work from anywhere boss babes or something) is moving from the hair and skin care MLM Monat (famous for “OMG my hair has fallen out!” “No, you’re ‘detoxing’.”) to a cryptocurrency MLM called iGenius. It’s been quite the shitshow and you can see it playing out on YouTube and Instagram. Of course, some of the WFABBers are not wanting to move from Monat, where the pay to play is a LOT less than going to a cryptocurrency scam.

The UN has been targeted before, with considerably more firepower.

NYT 12 December 1964:
Bazooka Fired at U.N. as Cuban Speaks; Launched in Queens, Missile Explodes in East River

United Nations Headquarters was fired upon yesterday with a 3.5-inch bazooka from across the East River. The attack coincided with a demonstration by anti‐Communist Cubans at the front entrance against the presence of Maj. Ernesto Che Guevara of Cuba.

A single shell from the bazooka, a portable rocket launcher used by, the Army, arced across the river from Queens and fell harmlessly about 200 yards from shore. The blast sent up a geyser of water and rattled windows in the headquarters just as Major Guevara, Havana’s Minister of Industry, was denouncing the United States.

Shortly before, a hysterical woman brandishing a hunting knife with a seven‐inch blade detached herself from 50 antiGuevara pickets and tried to force her way into the front entrance. The police subdued the leather‐jacketed woman, and later quoted her as saying she intended to assassinate Major Guevara.

And a week and half later…..
Three Castro Foes Arrested in Firing Of Bazooka at U.N

Three Cubans, understood to be opponents of the regime of Premier Fidel Castro, were arrested last night in the Dee. 11 firing of a bazooka shell toward the United Nations Headquarters.

Chief of Detectives Philip J. Walsh said eactt of the three was charged with endangering life maliciously by placing an explosive near a building, and with attempting to damage a building or a vessel, both of which are felonies. They were further charged with conspiracy, a misdemeanor..

re: #161 Hecuba’s daughter

Susan Collins claimed yesterday that she favored a national law passed by Congress that protects a woman’s right to choose. On Lawrence last evening, Elizabeth Warren also favored that option, admitting that it does require eliminating the filibuster. There are 2 flaws with this approach:

1. The next time the GOP has control of the WH and Congress, that law would be overturned and replaced with legislation that might return the authority to the states or might ban abortion nationwide.
2. As we saw with voting rights, this SCOTUS is fine with asserting its power to declare existing legislation unconstitutional. I have no doubt that is exactly the path it would take to deprive women of their rights.

Our only hope is for at least 2 GOP justices to leave the Court and be replaced by Biden appointees before any ruling is issued. Maybe Clarence retiring as part of a plea deal to prevent Ginni from going to prison for her role in 1/6? Maybe Alito being forced to retire if it turns out that he also was involved in the plot, as liar Sydney Powell suggested ?

That would be a favor for a favor, and we don’t want to go down that road. The last admin already tried it several times.
