Taliban Orders Women to Wear Burqa in Public Again
Women must cover entire face to avoid ‘seduction’: Taliban

Our future?

We won’t do that, but we could end up with “women shouldn’t be out alone after midnight” and “we need your husband’s signature.”

Absent oversight, assume predation.

“…Pohlen not only sexually abused the children himself, but sold them to people who wanted to acquire the children permanently or even “borrow” them as part of a sinister system of trial adoptions. (Pohlen died in 1969 at the age of 83.)

Two dozen former occupants of the orphanage joined the lawsuit, which was ultimately dismissed in 2011. They sued the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls and several religious orders over alleged sexual, physical and emotional abuse committed by 15 named Catholic clergymen and nuns between 1941 and 1982. One of the plaintiffs alleges that when she was six years old in 1952: “she was sexually abused by many of the potential adoptive families that [Pohlen], in his capacity as the head of the Orphanage, sent her to visit.”

Several of the condos in our community have the Welcome version along with a security camera. Likely armed, too, so I’m not going to test their commitment to the message.

No. This is Christian Evangelical America. Our own Christian Taliban in 2025 will start to issue Libertarian Utopia orders that is perfectly OK for employers to demand female employees “dress sexy” and sign away any right towards prosecuting sexual harassment or even rape.

Fascism evolves to suit the needs of the host country and culture. Don’t confuse medieval Muslim culture for modern American Christian culture.

This week, Shasta Lake is only at 40% of its total capacity, the lowest it has ever been at the start of May since record-keeping began in 1977.

According to the US Bureau of Reclamation, only agriculture customers who are senior water right holders and some irrigation districts in the Eastern San Joaquin Valley will receive the Central Valley Project water deliveries this year.

“We anticipate that in the Sacramento Valley alone, over 350,000 acres of farmland will be fallowed,” Mary Lee Knecht, public affairs officer for the Bureau’s California-Great Basin Region, told CNN. For perspective, it’s an area larger than Los Angeles. “Cities and towns that receive [Central Valley Project] water supply, including Silicon Valley communities, have been reduced to health and safety needs only.”

I meant the full burka treatment. I should have mentioned that I do see the “modest dress” thing being argued again, but companies can already require a dress code.

The April real estate data is out for San Diego County.

It’s worser and worser…

Once again YoY prices are up by 17-19%.

The average house price in April was a $1.361M.

The median house prices is up to… a cool $1.000M

And the median is rising faster than the average.

That’s for detached houses.

Because single family dwellings are no so expensive people are pushing towards attached dwellings.

And that lead to the average attached dwelling rising over 25% YoY.

That’s a rate which leads to doubling in price in less than 3 years.

People’s salaries have not doubled.

This is a squeeze that will be felt around the country. We tend to be trend setters out here, but most major urban areas are already undergoing similar transitions to a new price level, which will rule out large swaths of the population being able to afford to own their own dwellings.

These curves are trying to be exponentials:

Things like this will affect elections.

We are in the middle of another transition in this nation, in how we live.

What the other side is I do not know, but my nature is to expect it to be unpleasant.

We chose to rent until our kids finished school because we had jerked them around as I traveled from job to job (we don’t really like the town we’re in, but that’s the price of keeping the kids in the same school). Now it’s too late. When my wife says, “when we have a house soon…” it breaks my heart. And of course rent went up $400/month starting last year. Just hope the landlord doesn’t sell soon, because we’d have few choices. I reckon part of this story is now fairly common. (Oh, and the state GOP doesn’t want to build affordable housing because it would mean accepting federal grants, which they don’t want.)

re: #15 wrenchwench

In the Jell-O belt (Mormon country) it was the Indian Placement Program, which removed baptized (into the Mormon church) tribal children (mostly Navajo) and put them with good Mormon families. The purpose was IMHO to weaken the family and cultural ties of these children with their tribal families. This more or less went away by the 1980s. More recently there was a lawsuit by some placed children, as adults, claiming they were sexually molested in the families they were placed with. As of 2016, the cases were sent to Tribal Court for resolution as it had jurisdiction—no idea what happened after that.

Sorry to hear that.

It is also a common story.

And it will become more common.

The accumulation of wealth into the hands of a tiny minority will lead to them holding vast real estate empires, as land-banking.

I fear the despair will breed throughout the US as tough times come.

And despair will lead to even worse demagogues than Trump, as some of them will actually be competent in their schemes.

Looks like Northern Ireland is gonna be under new management:

Sinn Féin will be the largest party in the Northern Ireland Assembly for the first time, pushing the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) into second place.

Sinn Féin has 27 seats, compared to the DUP’s current tally of 24.

The result means Michelle O’Neill will be entitled to become first minister - unprecedented for a nationalist.

bbc.com

Sinn Féin really pulled it off. But….

Although Sinn Féin can now nominate a first minister, they cannot take up the office unless the DUP, the biggest party from the unionist bloc, agrees to nominate a deputy first minister.

Its leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson has not yet made a decision on whether the party will do that.

Nonetheless, that’s quite remarkable that Sinn Féin now finds itself at the forefront of Northern Ireland politics.

I’m afraid so. Jason Stanley, a philosophy professor at Yale, made the comment that institutions are likely already anticipating shifts to protect themselves once Trump or a DeSantis is elected. This will look like abolishing tenure at universities. He was roundly laughed at in the comments for being over the top, but it’s exactly what happens in fascistic societies. People will be surprised how quickly civil society will collapse under another Trumpist regime. In my case, I made my choices. I’m not some oppressed person.

Sharing this…Planned Parenthood in LA stepped up for a Texas woman needing an abortion.

Column: A Texas woman needed an abortion. Here’s how far California went to help her

BY ANITA CHABRIACOLUMNIST
MAY 6, 2022 5 AM PT
The first sign of Stephanie’s pregnancy was nausea, as it so often is — that particular debilitating queasiness that knocked her off her feet, sometimes all day, days at a time.

It kept Stephanie, who asked me not to use her real name for all the obvious reasons, from working. She runs her own business in Austin, Texas, braiding hair, a skill she learned as a teenager.

“Men, women, children,” she told me with a Lone Star twang. “Yes, ma’am,” she does them all and loves it, loves making her customers feel beautiful.

When Stephanie took a pregnancy test and it came back positive, she was shocked at first, then dismayed. Then things got worse.

Though she hadn’t thought much about it, Texas had just passed its law banning abortions after a heartbeat is found. California, the Golden State of both sunshine and liberty, has of course doubled down on access to reproductive health, also something Stephanie wasn’t yet thinking about.

Much more behind the button and it’s all worth a read.

re: #45 Barefoot Grin

I’m afraid so. Jason Stanley, a philosophy professor at Yale, made the comment that institutions are likely already anticipating shifts to protect themselves once Trump or a DeSantis is elected. This will look like abolishing tenure at universities. He was roundly laughed at in the comments for being over the top, but it’s exactly what happens in fascistic societies. People will be surprised how quickly civil society will collapse under another Trumpist regime. In my case, I made my choices. I’m not some oppressed person.

My comments about major media and corporations changing their policies, rhetoric and editorial content to not just survive, but thrive under fascism is apparently becoming more recognized. Good. At least I’m not alone in my “pessimism.” This shows at least a certain level of realization amongst mainstream liberal pundits… something lacking the past number of years. Where there is realization there can be action.

The GOP has made it easier to overturn elections they lose.

They won’t regret it.

Republicans Will Finally Get Their Wish When Roe v. Wade Is Overturned. They’ll Come to Regret It

Yeah, this is up there with Bob Cesca’s “Trump always makes things worse for Trump” nonsense catchphrase. Literally the only fallout Trump or the GOP suffered was losing the White House.

Trump’s still a free man despite openly committing treason and the GOP delivered to the religious freaks who support them their ban on abortion (with contraceptives, same sex marriage and interracial marriage soon to follow).

I fail to see how these motherfuckers are regretting anything.

My sister sent me this (I live in ‘that’ Fairfax County) and inquired (obviously amused) as to what exactly we are doing down here.

I explained that we are too far north to have alligators. Then I noted my frustration that the pictured site is the county Lorton site on the far side of the county. And the closest one to me doesn’t have that service.

I don’t think that she was reassured…

I usually have at least one or two veterans in my classes. It almost always makes the class better for their perspective (with a couple of rare exceptions).

Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus  May 7, 2022 • 3:23:24pm

I’ve taken classes off and on over the years, at the local community colleges, and at a language school in Japan.

Adult learning is more difficult but as we are following our desires probably more rewarding.

None of my later class taking ever led to a new profession. But again, that was not the point.

There are many things I’d love to study but it is unlikely I will take formal classes again. I’ve tapped out the local community colleges as far as my interests. If only San Diego State was not so impacted I might be able to audit a class or two, but SDSU suffers from a gross over-supply of students.

Seems like my Facebook timeline is awfully quiet these days, at least from the Trumper contingent.

A few of them unfriended me some time back. Others have hung on.

Facebook cleaning out the bots really seems to have quieted these people down.

I should not be amazed, but I kind of am, to see before me how propaganda works so easily on some folk.

I have no doubt that these Trumper types will continue to vote for whoever God’s Own Party nominates, no matter how bad that person may be.

re: #91 Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus

Very interesting point!

I also have not heard as much on social media or news lately. I am not sure why.

Perhaps it is fewer bots and agitators trying to stir up trouble. Perhaps the bots are just waiting until after the GQP primaries and closer to the midterms.

Perhaps there has been a bit of change heart of some of these…folks. <*snork*> I really crack myself up.

Perhaps it is the reporters who are going after the Democrats instead.

Or maybe because I have been pruning my contacts to cut down the pools of derp I have to wade through to find anything of value.

Don’t know. But the peace it brings is priceless.

Some of you may recall that New Zealand’s own contingent of anti-vax Qretins occupied Parliament grounds for several weeks recently. I found this an interesting read on the fallout from a Māori perspective.

It sounds to me like Oregon has a real Town-Rural divide problem. Not sure how that level of self-identification can be fixed.

One problem the Trumpers face is: where to go from here?

The next demagogue has to be more charismatic than Trump in order to keep them tizzy. But what we see on offering such as DeSantis, are pretty stale, like 3-day old pancakes.

Good point!

I have spent my life in the “Great North East Megalopolis”. But you are quite correct that even here, there is that divide. Pennsylvania has been described as two large cities separated by Alabama. And in Virginia, I have heard of the very Democratic leaning DC suburban areas being described as “Occupied Virginia”.

With all that, though, I have rarely seen much of an urge by rural folks to come into town and pick fights with locals.

To go away at any rate

“Artillery adds dignity to what would otherwise be an ugly brawl.”

Tru dat!

I have a copy of that poster (from the Artillery School) hanging up in my study. :)

The last week or so has been quite interesting. In April the Russians had been making some progress with their DonBas offensive. Since the announcement that Western artillery lendlease has been deployed on that front, the Russian offensive seems to have fizzled. And one analyst has compared recent Russian armored losses to those of the 1943 Kursk battle.

Interesting observations of a combat video by Hertling:
(To clarify his comments.

First, it used to be that artillery (indirect fire) did not have the accuracy to hit a specific target. They fired a lot of shells with the goal of winging enough people in the area that the rest lost interest and left.

Now, the capabilities are good enough to explicitly target a specific object.

Second, Russian doctrine was to get a massive amount of cannons in one spot and blanket an area with massive fire. The Russian Army does not appear to have the capability to coordinate small units like the US can.

Here there are only two cannons. They did not assemble tens or hundreds of cannons together. Does this mean that the Russians cannot assemble a lot of cannons (or anything else) without it getting blown to smithereens?)

Interesting piece!

I am completely ignorant and utterly unfamiliar with the Maori vocabulary or the context behind it

But, as I understood it, the article describes the tensions within the Maori community as some of the anti-government protesters used those protests as an opportunity to attack not only the Government of New Zealand, but the governing bodies of the Maori community as well.

From the reporting, I understand that the community organizations were able to defend themselves successfully?

It sounds like communities in New Zealand are facing similar issues to the stress that local communities and organizations in the US are facing from the insurrectionists.

This is very true. And if they had put up some camouflage netting it might have made precision targeting at least a little more challenging.

It almost looks like they were actually moving into the field to fire and then returning to the treeline. Not sure why they would do that. Unless maybe they were too lazy to level out the ground in the treeline.

In any case, if I were a Russian artilleryman, I would try and stand as far from the guns and ammo trucks as I possibly could.

The online guides I’m reading say you can do this with a standard Ethernet cable, doesn’t have to be a crossover. Just connect the two Macs with a cable plugged into both their Ethernet ports.

Yes. Most Ethernet NIC’s will auto negotiate properly. If your router is already Gigabit, it’s easier to just connect both machines to the router. If you connect them directly, both machines need to have their gateway address set to the opposite PC. I seldom do this because there is no advantage in speed. Transfer rate will be limited by the hard drive on the old Mac.

EDIT: Crossover cables are no longer required with Gigabit Ethernet.
