Lyrics:

Sometimes I get lonesome
Sometimes I get a little blue
He’s got me walking around in circles
And I don’t know what to do

What good is love
You can’t have it when you want it
What good is love if you
If you can’t own it

Love can be so good
And love can be so cruel
Love can make you happy
Love can make you blow your cool

But when he puts his arms around me
Way in the middle of the dark
You know he fills me up with a kind of delight
Ooh the mans all right

(Trouble with my lover)
I’m in a world of trouble
(Trouble with my lover)
I’m in a world of trouble

I feel so helpless
I can’t help myself
I don’t want to see him, oh no
With nobody else

In the restless hours
I sit home alone
I wish I could meet him oh
This man I love

But when he puts his arms around me
Way in the middle of the dark
You know he fills me up with a kind of delight
Ooh the mans all right

(Trouble with my lover)
I’m in trouble
(Trouble with my lover)
I’m in a world of trouble
(Trouble with my lover)
Mmm
(Trouble with my lover)
I’m in a world of trouble

re: #115 Targetpractice

It’s been quite the opposite, Virginia has been going blue in recent elections because VA Dems have been able to counteract efforts by VA Repubs to gerrymander the map in their favor. What happened last month had nothing to do with gerrymandering and everything to do with taking voters for granted.

And as they continue to roll back rights adjudicated by the Supreme Court (Roe, Obergefell, Lawrence, Griswold, Eisenstadt, Brown, the immigration lottery to go back to the 1924 Immigration Act, birthright citizenship), eventually they get to Baker v Carr.

Conservatives haven’t been shy about coming after privacy, they’ve been open about it for decades (Ted Cruz arguing against a right to self-pleasure with devices or owning them, arguing a state interest in birth).

Baker was a ruling on a court case from 1962 that took a whole year to decide by the Supreme Court. In a split decision, the court ruled that Tennessee failed to follow its own constitutional requirement to redistrict after every census. The last redistricting had occurred after the 1900 Census. Tennessee’s argument was that was a legislative decision, and thus beyond the rights of voters to sue about.

In that time, the population had dramatically shifted to Tennessee’s cities, meaning rural counties were much more heavily represented in state and federal elections than urban ones. That ruling established the principle of “one man one vote,” which conservatives absolutely despise (hence the extreme gerrymandering since).

That had the added benefit at the time of removing large minority populations from the electorate in addition to Jim Crow. Even if you could get past the racist requirements to register to vote, minority voters more likely lived in cities, where their votes counted for less.

The entire reasoning that I’m seeing behind every asshole who argues that what happened yesterday on The Mall was a “false flag” is “They don’t dress like ‘patriots’ do.” Because apparently there’s a set uniform for fascists and if you’re not in it, then you can’t be part of the club.

What I consider telling is if you go over to any wingnut echo chamber, they’re not even really trying to defend the Crumbleys. They’re attacking the prosecutor and the school, but they are almost all in agreement that the parents are fucking losers. The only thing they feel like defending…are the guns.

I have only a shotgun, but I have no trouble with a raft of regulations to cut down on the culture of death, from red flag laws to closing the gun show loophole to proper registration (including shotguns) to holding owners accountable for the security of their firearms.

When wingnuts started proclaiming “Second Amendment Sanctuaries,” in Nebraska my county was ignominiously the first one to do it, followed by Gov. Pete Ricketts praising our county commission. Ugh.

It has to be more than closing the gun show loophole. It has to be illegal for anyone to handle a gun unless they pass a background check and have a valid license; no guns given as gifts or inherited except by those with a valid gun license; and licenses should last no more than 3 years and require renewal. There must also be harsh penalties for anyone involved in straw purchases.

As to ghost guns — why cannot those be outlawed nationwide? Anyone involved in the manufacture or sale or transfer of such weapons should face a stiff prison sentence.

I’m guessing a huge reason why the wingnuts aren’t really coming to the defense of the Crumbley parents is because they couldn’t even manage to escape from town, much less flee the country (and Canada was literally across the river from where they were caught), all while they left their son to rot in jail.

I’ll agree, the Crumbley parents are fucking losers….their son was one huge red flag who seriously needed help and they not only ignored that, they literally gave him the weapon he used to kill and maim.

The kid can spend the rest of his natural life in a secure psychiatric facility, because it’s become patently obvious over the past few days he is and was not of sound mind, but he still has to pay a price to society for what he did; however, the parents need to be thrown under the fucking jail to rot.

I’m not sure how you could enforce the background check proposal on your average Joe or Jane loaning their hunting rifle to their friend for the afternoon, but we gotta start someplace.

Red flag laws would certainly cut down on domestic murders. I’m all in on banning giving firearms (or other weapons) as gifts without some sort of training or license.

I’m all for taking the NRA’s own safety rules and making them laws with penalties.

The only real defense (if you could call it that) is “whataboutism.” They’re conceding that the parents are fuck-ups, but are arguing that they shouldn’t face charges because “WHAT ABOUT THE SCHOOL!?” Which really gives the game away that this has nothing to do with a belief that they did nothing wrong and more a worry that if they are convicted then other prosecutors might gain confidence to begin holding neglectful gun-owners accountable for crimes committed with their “lost”/”stolen” guns.

It’s bad enough our state attorney general Doug Peterson entered into the multi-state lawsuit to stop vaccine mandates (currently enjoined by the District Court for the District of Eastern Missouri).

Hospital administrators in the area are also promoting wingnut propaganda about vaccines. Quoting Box Butte General Hospital (county seat Alliance) CEO Lori Mazanec in the Alliance Times-Herald:

“The ultimate goal of the vaccine mandate, per CMS, is to keep patients safe,” said Mazanec. “Patients are and will continue to be safe in our hospital whether our team is vaccinated or not vaccinated. The current rate of eligible individuals vaccinated in the Nebraska Panhandle is 40 percent. Patients are not coming to the hospital for services and becoming ill with COVID. Patients seek care when sick with COVID and our teams provide the highest level of care and excellence with or without vaccinations. The authority for the COVID pandemic guidelines has been left with the states to govern. It should and needs to continue to remain at the state level.”

Plus a vaccination rate of 40% in the Panhandle is far too low to arrest the spread of Covid-19.

Plus “will be safe whether our team is vaccinated or not vaccinated.” Gaa. That also fits in with the governor’s offer to pay bonuses to anyone fired in another state over a hospital vaccine mandate to move to Nebraska.

It is the unvaccinated who are primarily spreading and becoming seriously ill from Covid-19.

Her arguments are Republican talking points, not medical information.

A little less than 10% of the county has had the disease.

Box Butte General Hospital is considered a Critical Care Access Hospital by the federal government. According to state data, the hospital has twenty-five beds total.

Her argument was that requiring vaccinations would cause an unbearable administrative load tracking employees and patients, and would jeopardise the safety of those same patients (by increasing the workload of nursing staff who would quit).

28
Anymouse 🌹🏡😷  Dec 6, 2021 • 12:47:52am

Early in the pandemic when there was no vaccine and Panhandle Public Health District quarantined the entire Panhandle to discourage out-of-area people from coming in, a single Covid-positive visitor from Colorado to Kimball shut down Kimball Health Services (another critical access hospital, in Kimball, Nebr.) for a couple weeks. That also engulfed the Panhandle with Covid-19, though we managed to have no cases detected (when we still had testing before the governor shut it down) for the first five months.

There’s no way staff at Box Butte General Hospital haven’t been repeatedly exposed.

Kimball’s hospital was shut was back when we still had contact tracing before the governor shut it down citing privacy concerns.

The hospital was shut for two weeks with patients transferred to other hospitals, so it could be sanitised. Out of an abundance of caution, Kimball Health Services also shut their satellite clinic in Pine Bluffs, Wyoming (since staff members travel between the two facilities).

Because Repubs are only interested in dragging out the pandemic in the hope that they can use voter frustration to win next year. Hence why they’re doing everything they can to not only incentivize resistance to vaccination efforts, but also punish those who cooperate with such.

Biden administration expected to announce diplomatic boycott of Beijing Olympics this week (CNN)

The boycott would only be by US Government officials. Athletes would still be allowed to compete. It is expected in response to human rights abuses in China.

In response to the news, Beijing warned it would take “resolute countermeasures” against the Biden administration if the diplomatic boycott went ahead.

“The US should stop politicizing sports and hyping up the so-called ‘diplomatic boycott’ so as not to affect China-US dialogue and cooperation in important areas,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said at a news conference Monday.

I’ve been wondering if perhaps the IOC, should setup a permanent facility in Greece, funded by all IOC participants, rather than putting the burden solely on Greece, to avoid this kind of nonsense in the future. Especially since it seems like every place that has hosted games post LA 1984 has been an economic and environmental disaster for them.

But then they wouldn’t be able to engage in the IOC’s only real function - massive bribery and other graft.

Honestly the most useful revolutionary act in the west would be to shut down the IOC. They would save billions for the world.

I consider Japan followed by Germany the largest population full democracies in the world. How ironic that the losers of WW2 under cruel dictatorships would now be the leaders.

The US has been a deeply flawed democracy since Bush/Cheney with one foot over the line into Hybrid Regime with Trump. We still teeter into Hybrid Regime territory with Republican states now placing Republican Party hacks and partisans in power specifically and openly to overturn and ignore the popular vote.

There was no question about the outcome of the election, the only issue was which parties were to be assigned to head which ministries.

The Socialists get

Internal affairs and Homeland
Labor and Social
Health
Construction
Economic Cooperation & Development
Climate Protection

Greens get

Foreign Ministry
Family
Environment

Liberal Democrats get

Finance
Justice
Transportation
Education & Research

Sounds like the Liberal Democrats (liberal in the economic sense) party got the best end of the deal:

Finance is the key to everything, Germany is a major transportation hub, Education is the key to their development and the Liberal Democrats are rather Libertarian in their views on individual rights, State surveillance & control of information.

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. San Francisco suspends tax on cannabis retailers to help them compete with illegal dealers after looters stole $5million of products from 15 dispensaries in a month

Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong told reporters that ‘hundreds’ of vehicles targeted marijuana stores in Oakland last month, firing 175 shots and stealing about $5million worth of products.

City supervisor Rafael Mandeman told the San Francisco Examiner the legal cannabis market is helping create jobs and offering regulated products to customers.

But he said: ‘Sadly, the illegal market is flourishing by undercutting the prices of legal businesses, which is bad for our economy as illegal businesses pay no taxes while subjecting workers to dangerous conditions and consumers to dangerous products.

dailymail.co.uk

From another source:

“Cannabis businesses create good jobs for San Franciscans and provide safe, regulated products to their customers,” Mandelman said in a statement. “Sadly, the illegal market is flourishing by undercutting the prices of legal businesses, which is bad for our economy as illegal businesses pay no taxes while subjecting workers to dangerous conditions and consumers to dangerous products. Now is not the time to impose a new tax on small businesses that are just getting established and trying to compete with illicit operators.”

Mandelman’s office pointed to a Dec. 19 report from the California Legislative Analyst’s Office that found that increased state cannabis tax rates were directly linked to illegal cannabis sales.

In addition to the illegal sales, increased theft is also creating problems for cannabis retailers.

In a recent case, on Nov. 16, an armed group stole thousands of dollars’ worth of merchandise from cannabis retailer BASA, located on Grove Street. The burglary was the fifth at the location, according to Mandelman’s office.

The Pie Overlord!  Dec 6, 2021 • 6:12:34am

Found it here:

With the new update, users can now only view images through the “Visit” button, which takes them to the webpage that contains the image. This means that users would have to access the website first, before retrieving the image from the internet. While the update might seem like a simple option change, it is one of the most frequently used buttons on the site, as it instantly leads users to the image in fewer clicks. Image search has also been removed as well. However, users would still be able to do a reverse image search on the website to look for images sources.

While the update might seem like a sudden change, it has been something that was bound to happen, due to the charges filed by Getty Images against Google. The accusation was that Google was promoting image piracy by giving users an easier way to access multiple images. This led to Google establishing a partnership with Getty, and updating Google images in order for the charges to be dropped.

I’m all for taking the NRA’s own safety rules and making them laws with penalties.

I have not read through the thread yet and i know im a one trick pony on this,

None of these great and logical ideas will ever fly - there will never be enough votes or support for licenses, insurance, ‘ban’s, etc.

what has a chance, and maybe only a 1% chance as someone here (i cant remember who) pointed out to me is responsibility/accountability. the same way it applies to every other thing in life.

yes - use the NRA’s message because it’s simple: Control your weapon at all times - that’s all that’s needed

Control means holding, handling, storing, lending, selling (who and how you sell to is YOUR responsibility), carrying, brandishing, etc.

We may have hit a point where a schism starts to show.
The mostly conscientious, responsible gun owners have let the nutters and the crazies be the face of all gun owners.
Up to now it really hasnt hurt their cause much.
This is odd because the nutters and crazies so far were all mass shooters.
Somehow the gun lobby has threaded the needle that ‘they’ arent us.

Now they’ve got these two ‘parents’ who didn’t pull a trigger and are way more like the gun owning masses. And are clearly not nuts. Maybe not reasonable, but certainly ‘understandable’. (ok up to ‘don’t get caught LOL’)

Maybe now the rest of gun owners will see that holding people like these two responsible for what they did has absolutely no effect on everyone else’s ownership or behavior and never would. just like arresting a DUI has no effect on my or my license or my driving.

and if they start to cull out the demonstrably irresponsible and the truly dangerous the rest of us can go about our gun toting lives more or less unharassed.

Wow, Ukraine is surrounded.

Satellite images have revealed huge new camps of Russian troops, tanks and artillery near the Ukrainian border as Vladimir Putin continues massing his forces on Europe’s doorstep amid warnings he could invade within weeks.

Newly-published images document at least three camps housing seven battalions of troops near at Yelnya and Pogonovo, between 100 and 150 miles from the border, which analysts say have arrived in the last month.

More images taken from Russian-occupied Crimea shows what appears to be dozens of tanks and artillery pieces parked on a base at Novoozerne, around 80 miles from the border, which have also arrived in recent weeks.

The coffin or assisted suicide in general?

In 2015, a Canadian friend of mine went to Switzerland to commit assisted suicide. She had terminal, inoperable lung cancer and was terrified that if she stayed in Canada that under Stephen Harper’s government, they wouldn’t let her just die but would force unneeded care upon her. So she went through the trouble, and it was quite a bit of trouble, to get the paperwork needed to show the Swiss that 1) she was who she said she was and 2) she had a terminal diagnosis.

Prior to going to Switzerland, she and a friend visited Iceland and left behind a Facebook with lots of pictures before heading off to Geneva, where she died peacefully. By the end she was having trouble breathing due to the mass in her lungs. I thought it was awfully brave of her to do what she did. I don’t know if I could have done it.

you are not wrong and i agree
and
that ship has sailed and isn’t coming back anytime soon
any discussion about interpretations of the 2A is pointless.
there will never be agreement.

what has a slim chance is coming to terms with the fact that every right whether enumerated in the constitution or not, comes with responsibilities.

we know this in most every other aspect of life.
those who try to get away with stuff using clever legal maneuverings know it too (OJ, rittenhouse, etc)

there is no right that is responsibility free. Including the RKBA.

what we have done collectively, legislatively, and judicially is ignore this basic premise - when it comes to guns.

‘accidents’, ‘he’s suffered enough’, etc., lax enforcement of straw sales, brandishing, etc.

you all know my stance
hold people personally responsible for what they undeniably do.

if when they have demonstrated they cannot control their weapons at all times, they should lose their freedom, their finances, and their future 2A privileges.

holding people accountable may make others behave just a bit more carefully.

and ‘a bit more carefully’ can cut those annual killed and injured numbers way down.

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. Got boosted yesterday morning and got fever and chills just in time to not sleep last night. I’m doing better this morning, but feel wiped out.

It’s still a whole lot better than getting covid19 and dying. I can deal with this, but there’s a lot of people who can’t afford to lose even a day of work, or have kids they need to attend to and can’t deal with any time away from work/child care.

This pandemic has exposed all kinds of faults with how we deal with child care, health care, and employment in the nation.

All the while, the GOP has sided with more covid19 and more death and misery at every turn. That’s despite claiming that without Trump we wouldn’t have the very vaccines that right wingers refuse to take.

But if you look at demographics, persons of color are still not getting vaccinated at rates that they should. This could be a combination of location, access, and concerns about vaccinations that have historically permeated how the US deals with persons of color generally.

The ownership of guns should come with the ownership of whatever bad happens with that gun is your responsibility.

it does.
just like with every other aspect of life.
guns are not special such that owning one is consequence free. (it just seems so).
it’s just that with guns, this has not been directly and forcefully addressed or enforced.

re: #77 Dangerman

I have not read through the thread yet and i know im a one trick pony on this,

None of these great and logical ideas will ever fly - there will never be enough votes or support for licenses, insurance, ‘ban’s, etc.

what has a chance, and maybe only a 1% chance as someone here (i cant remember who) pointed out to me is responsibility/accountability. the same way it applies to every other thing in life.

yes - use the NRA’s message because it’s simple: Control your weapon at all times - that’s all that’s needed

Control means holding, handling, storing, lending, selling (who and how you sell to is YOUR responsibility), carrying, brandishing, etc.

We may have hit a point where a schism starts to show.
The mostly conscientious, responsible gun owners have let the nutters and the crazies be the face of all gun owners.
Up to now it really hasnt hurt their cause much.
This is odd because the nutters and crazies so far were all mass shooters.
Somehow the gun lobby has threaded the needle that ‘they’ arent us.

…..

and if they start to cull out the demonstrably irresponsible and the truly dangerous the rest of us can go about our gun toting lives more or less unharassed.

It’s not just mass shooters; it’s all those who have weapons that children, even toddlers, use to kill or harm their playmates or family members. This has been going on for years and yet there is no accountability. Those who allow this to happen need to suffer real penalties, including prison time.

I do not think that the terminology is valid. Putin has plans to restore the Russian Empire, not to export an ideology worldwide as was the case with the USSR.

He is just enjoying the sight of us squabbling and bickering on how to react to him while he quietly pursues his agenda and leaves behind a trail of irreversible faits accompli like the annexation of the Crimea.

This is basically the only subject the Russian government takes seriously with the US. Everything else they do in diplomacy is bluster and bullshit, but when it comes to arms control it’s textbook rational negotiation. If there was to be a nuclear exchange, I still think the most likely would be India and Pakistan.

If you took a time machine back to 1921 and asked an American what life would be like in 2021 you’d get some wild guesses, for sure.

Some may think that a Metropolis like future was a sure thing.

But, no one would have guessed:
1) nuclear weapons;
2) Bitcoin;
3) Donny and Marie Osmond being nostalgia figures.

On a related note, imagine going back to 1961 and telling the first person you meet that in 2021:

1. Russia is preparing a military attack
2. Gays and Lesbians are fighting for their rights each and every day.
3. Christian conservatives are trying to keep women barefoot and pregnant.
4. They’re also trying to ban books and music they don’t like.
5. Chrysler, Ford and GM still make gasoline vehicles (i.e. no flying cars).
6. Jewish people are constantly being discriminated against.
7. Southern leaders are trying to make sure blacks can’t vote.

Thursday is Donny Osmond’s birthday. He’ll be 64.

I didn’t know about this but I’ll have to hunt it up now.

Osmond is mentioned in the lyrics of Alice Cooper’s song “Department of Youth” on the album Welcome to My Nightmare. As the song fades, Cooper can be heard asking the youth choir backing him up, “Who’s got the power?” to which a crowd of young people screams “We do!” After a couple of repetitions, this changes to “We’ve got the power” with a cheering response. On the final repetition, Cooper changes the question to “…and who gave it to you?” The crowd answers, “Donny Osmond!” Cooper then responds “What?!”

Belafon  Dec 6, 2021 • 10:57:04am
A federal appeals court last week declined China Telecom’s emergency bid to halt a U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) order withdrawing its capability to provide telecommunications services in the United States.

According to a Reuters report, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District Columbia rejected the bid previously filed by the local branch of China Telecom to temporarily block the FCC order, which takes effect in early January.

Following this legal decision, China Telecom said that without a temporary halt to the FCC action, it “will be forced to cease significant operations, irreparably harming its business, reputation, and relationships.”

In October, the FCC issued an order which effectively ended China Telecom Americas’ ability to provide domestic interstate and international telecommunications services within the U.S. China Telecom immediately launched a legal appeal against the ban.

“Promoting national security is an integral part of the Commission’s responsibility to advance the public interest, and today’s action carries out that mission to safeguard the nation’s telecommunications infrastructure from potential security threats,” FCC said.

The FCC said that China Telecom Americas, a U.S. subsidiary of a Chinese state-owned enterprise, is subject to “exploitation, influence, and control” by the Chinese government and is highly likely to be forced to comply with Chinese government requests without sufficient legal procedures subject to independent judicial oversight.
