The final version of Alito’s opinion that is published will be softened and polished, but the gist of it will remain. Women will have virtually no constitutional rights that a white man is bound to respect, because they had none in 1868.

This opinion does show why it was vitally important to pass the Equal Rights Amendment, and what a tragedy it was that it failed. Most women’s rights only exist through statutes that can be repealed.

Sadly, women will only be the first victims. LGBTQ+ are next on the list with Obergefell, then interracial couples with Loving, and virtually any other ruling that guarantee minority rights that rely in part or in whole upon Griswold. Given the authoritarian nature of our enemies, the death of the “right to privacy” is likely to lead to only more attempts to begin insinuating government surveillance in our lives as “national security.”

CA shit the bed in a stupid energy deregulation scheme, and all of the resulting rolling blackouts etc. were entirely man-made because the resulting “free market” incentivized energy producers to create artificial shortages.

Once those perverse incentives were ended, the power came back like fucking magic.

More recently, there are issues with wildfires getting started by power lines, so blackouts are preemptively done in fire country when there’s high wind.

re: #19 EPR-radar

To be fair, when the weather is very hot over a large region, or the whole state, CA’s increasing reliance on renewable power means production and demand peak at different times, which can cause problems.

Yeah, the main limitation is that a battery farm at the level of a wide area power grid is a fire hazard trying to happen. It would be nice if there was a safer and more convenient way to store large amounts of energy that could be quickly disbursed during high demand.

It is not the infamous 11’ 8” bridge, which is the one to which you are referring. (Now, that bridge is 12’ 4”, but is lovingly referred to as “11’ 8”+8” to memorialize its history.) I don’t remember which one this is, though.

Our outdoor cat has decided that she will not eat her food if it has been left in the rain. She will physically shove it out of her food bowl and leave it off to the side, then sit at the door and meow pathetically to demand fresh food. Now, I wouldn’t mention it, if it was something she had always done. No, she literally just started doing this last month.

re: #61 No Malarkey!

The stock market took a pounding today.

This is because the Fed raised interest rates, when they should have known better not to, because the “inflation” right now is because of everything but monetary policy. COVID caused supply chain problems, Russian invasion of Ukraine, higher fuel prices, price-gouging by corporations who are blaming inflation because people are stupid, etc.

The Fed didn’t “print a bunch of money”, the government isn’t throwing money at people to not work, and inflation is happening everywhere but is the least bad here… and they all goddamn well know this. Raising interest rates isn’t how you deal with this problem and they are going to make shit worse.

I can’t believe that Esquire promoted this shitty infringing Kickstarter, that says right in the text that it’s doing something that he can’t legally do, was guaranteed to be shut down, and has since been shut down.

Unfortunately The Departed has one huge problem. The movie ends with the painfully on the nose metaphor of an ACTUAL RAT crawling across screen. It’s always bothered me that a movie as good as The Departed has such a cheesy ending, and I recently realized it could be fixed by digitally erasing the rat from the last shot.

I cannot sell any of these Blu-ray copies, because even though it’s obviously a far better version of The Departed, I do not own the rights to the movie. So, if you’d like to receive one of the 50 limited edition copies, you’ll have to contribute $70 or more. This will allow me to buy you a legal Blu-ray of The Departed, throw that disc away, replace it with my superior version, and mail it to you.

re: #72 Jack Burton in Mactified Forshion

Even if the current inflation is not solely the result of monetary policy, the Fed did keep interest rates too low for too long.

Banks and big borrows have gotten used to really cheap money.

But our lives are all about eeking out a living with whatever we have. My current soapbox about real estate is driven in part because land rents are shooting up but that only could have happened if people had access to cheap money to buy up as much property as they can find.

The property prices are skyrocketing because there is no shortage of buyers. There is a shortage of supply.

There is no shortage of buyers because money to borrow has been too easy, (among other reason.)

Not disagreeing with you on that, but right now is not the time to up and decide to “fix this”. Making money cheap shot up the prices of housing but there was practically zero inflation for anything else so this might not have been the best tool for that job either.

My useless congresscritter:

Just a few hours before a congressional candidate’s forum was slated to begin on Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo’s staff called event organizers and said he couldn’t make it because he had “meetings dealing with national security.” But as all six of Palazzo’s Republican challengers were still on stage sharing their ideas with the public, the incumbent posted a Facebook photo of himself with his son at a restaurant in Starkville. It is unclear if national security was among the topics Palazzo discussed with his college-aged son over dinner.

Palazzo, the 10-year incumbent congressman representing Mississippi’s 4th District, will be on the June 7 primary ballot for the Republican nomination to Congress. Six GOP challengers — including several well-known Gulf Coast figures — have lined up to unseat him, in large part because of an ongoing House Ethics Committee investigation into allegations that Palazzo illegally misspent hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign funds for personal use.

Typical fucking Republicans.

Our outdoor cat has decided that she will not eat her food if it has been left in the rain. She will physically shove it out of her food bowl and leave it off to the side, then sit at the door and meow pathetically to demand fresh food. Now, I wouldn’t mention it, if it was something she had always done. No, she literally just started doing this last month.

My cat stopped eating kibble (in fact, she pawed it out of the feeder to express her disdain), so I frantically bought a bunch of different flavors of canned and pouched cat food, and found some she would eat, then bought a few boxes of same. Well, now she won’t eat *those*. So I went back to the kibble. She’s eating that. For now.

220507 electoral-vote.com

Let’s start with a couple of questions: What was the annual inflation rate last year? And what is the projected annual inflation rate for this year? We’ll get back to that.

the rate of inflation in 1984 was 3.9%, and the sitting American president won reelection in a landslide [Reagan]. Was that because other issues concerned people more than inflation did? Or because things seemed headed in the right direction by the time people cast their ballots? Or because Walter Mondale was such a lousy candidate? Or because Ronald Reagan was such a good candidate? We do not know, but clearly a high annual rate of inflation was not determinative, at least not by itself.

Currently, the projected inflation for 2022 is… 3.9%. And inflation last year checked in at… 7.0%. Did you know that? Did anyone who is not an economist or in the financial sector know that? Put another way, inflation was nearly twice as bad last year as it’s projected to be this year. And yet it’s this year that we see all the Chicken Little “the sky is falling” inflation news. It’s almost like the gap created by reduced COVID-19 coverage had to be filled with some other form of negativity.

The point here is that inflation, while clearly a real thing, is also about perceptions. And if there is less coverage of the issue over the next few months (with, say, abortion coverage filling the negativity quotient), or if things seem to be headed in the right direction by the time of the election, then it’s entirely plausible that kitchen-table issues will not be determinative in November.

2) my bottled water (not fizzy stuff, just Crystal Geyser) has gone up 30%;
3) bakery items I buy (cookies) have gone up about 25%.

Sorry to hear about the reckless. Good to hear that you were cut at least a little bit of a break.

In Virginia, a Reckless driving charge automatically includes a criminal (misdemeanor) charge. Mostly the traffic court judge waives it.

But in many places, judges will sentence a defendant to 1 day in jail for every mile per hour beyond 20 over the speed limit. Often this involves a bunch of weekends in local jail.

re: #168 EPR-radar

It has simply never occurred to me before now that the ability (or lack thereof) to put on a military parade could actually say something real about a nation’s military capability.

You are 100% correct. That is exactly the purpose of parades.

Back in ancient days, a victory parade was a demonstration of winning. It proved that you still had your army and it was in good condition. (Ie not slaughtered, and still had the shields and armor which would have been thrown away to aid in fleeing faster from a victorious enemy.) And usually you brought back loot and prisoners to bolster the claims of success.

In more modern times, colonels were given a budget in return for providing a unit of so many trained and equipped men. The parade was an inspection for the king or dictator to verify that the money was not embezzled. (Beyond an agreed to amount.) It is still popular in many low trust countries.

The US never really went that route because of our self definition as a civilian democracy. The use of non-professionals to fill the military out in wartime. And the habit of sending an inspection team to the unit rather than sending the unit to be inspected by the President.

(Except for parades celebrating the end of wars. Although that may be more for the voters who are returning home to be demobilized and their families.)

Aha! That explains a lot. She certainly has made a lot of enemies. Which is generally not a good idea.

My father, who worked with a lot of senior politicians and government officials back in his day, noted that the smartest and most successful politicians worked very hard to be friendly and win over even their opponents. That has also been my (rather limited) experience as well.

This is one reason why I am watching with such curiousity about the current GQP Oppositional Defiance Disorder platform.

Speaking of local politics and state legislatures, I’m not sure where the Democrats have a possibility of flipping a legislative body.

States where Democrats used to have a chance were demolished in 2020.

This is why I’m not optimistic. Seeing so many places where (even slightly) liberal Democrats used to get elected go hard for Trumping GOP tells me that as a polity our country is worse off than some Democratic strategists project.

Example: Iowa. It has swung hard-right in only a few years.

Minnesota is unlikely to go that way but the Dems are not even secure there outside of downtown Minneapolis.

Maybe Arizona can be changed. The old folk who go there to retire die off soon enough and as bad a (D) as Sinema is she still got elected as a Democrat.

The final version of Alito’s opinion that is published will be softened and polished, but the gist of it will remain. Women will have virtually no constitutional rights that a white man is bound to respect, because they had none in 1868.

And the White women who keep voting for Republicans are cool with that, I guess. It’s not just White men who support Republicans, unfortunately.

Hard to say. You have the investment in time and know the apps but the Adobe subscription model, I consider to be onerous.

There are more alternatives than there used to be, especially for Photoshop.

Photoshop alternative: Pixlr. The Gimp. Pixelmator Pro (mac only IIRC)
Lightroom alternative: RawTherapee. Darktable
Illustrator alternative: Inkscape.
InDesign alternative: Scribus.
Premiere Pro alternative: DaVinci Resolve.
After Effects alternative: Blender.
Fireworks alternative: Affinity Designer

Walked away from Adobe except for Reader and don’t miss them personally. May ditch Reader soon since the browsers do an excellent job with pdfs now.

My money’s on right-wingers trying to generate sympathy for themselves. Because this would absolutely be a first for pro-choicers; they’ve never been arsonists.

Besides, pro-choicers are a good deal better informed and more logical, and therefore more capable in terms of creating improvised incendiary devices. If they did resort to arson, the place would be a smoldering crater.

re: #235 Michele: Out of the closet, Into the fire

[McConnell] He also says if Republicans take charge, they will outlaw all abortions in the US, period…

No he won’t…

This is, quite simply, a lie. McConnell doesn’t control the Senate right now and, if and when he does again, he’s not going to get 60 votes to overcome a Democratic filibuster. Nor is he going to get 50 Republican votes to kill the filibuster or create a carve-out. Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Susan Collins (R-ME) would never go for it, and there are several other women senators and/or senators from purplish states whose votes would be very hard to get. And even if McConnell somehow could get the 50 votes, he knows full well that killing/carving out the filibuster to ban abortion nationwide would give Democrats an engraved invitation, the next time they have the trifecta, to pack the Court, pass a new Voting Rights Act, overturn the ban on abortion, and do a host of other things that will enrage Republican voters. In other words, McConnell has absolutely no intention of following through on his (incredibly vague) promise. He’s just trying to minimize potential damage to the Republicans ahead of the midterms

I was using Adobe CS6 (the final Adobe standalone download) until I got a new Dell last year. Then I shelled out for the subscription thing. It’s also easier keeping everything on one device instead of one desktop and one laptop. I still have my 2012 Lenovo laptop as a backup.
