We went and looked at dogs today. We found a young (18 months old) Rotweiller at the Oakland Animal Shelter. He’s 85 lbs and seems to be very smart but not sure on house broken. Working hard already on that! I don’t think he’s used to inland heat, he hasn’t stopped panting at 120BPM and it’s only 88F. He saw himself in a mirror for the first time, and looked behind it for the dog. He likes all the toys my last dog ignored, but has no interest in dog treats, not even the bacon strips. I have a broken Milk Bonz and a broken up bacon strip littering my carpet now.

Meet Duke.

How do you know that no one at Fox has ever actually watched or understood Star Trek?

Because they think that Star Trek suddenly got “woke”.

It has always been woke.

Covid continues surging in NJ, though the official counts are likely seriously undercounting.

nj.com

Thing is, lots of people may have it and have milder symptoms that are indistinguishable from allergies (my symptoms would not have made me test for it until the Mrs tested positive, and she only tested b/c of a fever, which was unusual for her). Then I kept testing at home.

It’s not good, but thankfully the vaccines are doing their job so far.

Good evening folks. It’s an extra good Caturday. We have been trying to integrate our 2 cats and the 2 cats that came with the house. It’s been 11 months. One of the original housecats is Tigger, a terribly rambunctious tabby fixed male. He wants to chase and play a lot. My two from the apartment? Not so much. Pepper our 16-year-old MC wants to chill. Cinnamon our 6 yo Manx is standoffish with other cats.

Aha but today they started to get along in the same room. It took almost a year of patient separation.

So tonight we celebrate with a great dinner. Welsh rarebit and a variety of meats from Johnson beer brats, to a couple of sirloins, to some bacon-wrapped beef sticks.

They always try to pretend otherwise but then each new series comes out and rubs their face in it yet again. It was never as black and white as Star Wars, but it always was about good fighting against evil.

When I was a kid, I didn’t *get* how much Roddenberry was challenging the status quo. He had a couple of Jewish guys (Shatner, Nimoy) playing the two main characters, a Black woman in a prominent role, guys of Russian and Japanese heritage on the bridge and of course Scotty, who was a white guy with a prominent accent, and McCoy, the only “true” white guy in all of this. I can’t imagine what people thought about having all these current and former enemies and Not White People on the deck of the Enterprise. Now, as an adult, I’m like, HOLEE SHIT and kudos to you Gene. Now if Kirk hadn’t been so much of a ladies’ man…

Folks, this is just whack…telling someone they need an exorcism because they were conceived via IVF.

I’m just going to note that it’s difficult to get a hard number on how many people are alive as a result of IVF as that is lumped together with other reproductive technologies, but it could be over a million people here in the USA alone. I could see, and I don’t want to see how our fellow human beings could be viciously attacked for how they got here. Argh.

Beyond whack. My GF’s daughter was an IVF baby. My Ex and I considered it but the cost was so high that it made international adoption seem cheap (which still bankrupted us, twice, in the long run) in comparison. Luddites are hard enough to deal with; religious luddites are like Illinois Nazis’… ;)

Folks, this is just whack…telling someone they need an exorcism because they were conceived via IVF.

I’m just going to note that it’s difficult to get a hard number on how many people are alive as a result of IVF as that is lumped together with other reproductive technologies, but it could be over a million people here in the USA alone. I could see, and I don’t want to see how our fellow human beings could be viciously attacked for how they got here. Argh.

When you spread the story that the ONLY reason to have children is to reproduce - thus no contraception, no abortion, you then have to believe that any other method used to conceive a child is completely wrong and sinful.

The presumed goals of the Russian invasion of Ukraine at the start the war were to
(1) capture Kyiv,
(2) capture the Black Sea coastline from Russia to the border of Moldova, and then
(3) conduct a grand encirclement of and capture the entire standing Ukrainian Army East of the Dniepro (Dnieper) River.

When the Russians were defeated at Kyiv and unable to advance along the Black Sea, they attempted to conduct a smaller encirclement of part of the Ukrainian Army in the DonBas region.

The Ukrainian Army has stopped one of the Russian Army pincers and sent it retreating to Russia. The Ukrainian Army is currently attempting to surround part of that pincer at Izium. The Ukrainian Army is currently working to stop the Russian advance from the Kherson Region.

So now the Russians are attempting a mini-encirclement against a small section of the Ukrainian Army directly in front of the breakaway Donetsk and Luhansk pro-Russian regions. And that, so far, doesn’t seem to be going well.

This is a video of two Ukrainian Infantryman in a foxhole during a battle. You can hear rifle fire and artillery. At one point a mortar shell hits nearby. You can see them shooting rifle grenades and, at one point, throwing a hand grenade.

What amuses the poster is that the two Ukrainian soldiers are speaking Russian to each other.

It does feel like south central Arizona in mid-May. The high temp zoomed up from 86 on Thursday to 102 today. Right now it’s 77 outside and my a/c is going off. Tomorrow it’s supposed to be 105. Over the two decades I’ve lived here, I’ve figured out that for me, 105 is the upper limit of what I can tolerate as “very warm” and anything above that is “hot.” That said, it’s still a dangerous temperature.

Our new dog is still confused by the sliding mirrors on our closets. I likes the dog in the mirror and he licks the other dog. The mirrors were at 90 degrees and he saw several dogs. It’s a lot to process for him. He’s only barked twice. He heard or saw something in the back yard and let out a hell of a bark. The second time I noticed he saw his reflection in the sliding glass door against the dark of night. He likes the dog in the mirror but not the one in the dark of night in his back yard. If he ever barks at a person I think they will need fresh underwear. He makes snoring sounds when he’s super happy.

re: #21 Rightwingconspirator

Good evening folks. It’s an extra good Caturday. We have been trying to integrate our 2 cats and the 2 cats that came with the house. It’s been 11 months. One of the original housecats is Tigger, a terribly rambunctious tabby fixed male. He wants to chase and play a lot. My two from the apartment? Not so much. Pepper our 16-year-old MC wants to chill. Cinnamon our 6 yo Manx is standoffish with other cats.

Aha but today they started to get along in the same room. It took almost a year of patient separation.

So tonight we celebrate with a great dinner. Welsh rarebit and a variety of meats from Johnson beer brats, to a couple of sirloins, to some bacon-wrapped beef sticks.

Even with the media talking about this it’s still exaggerated. The toilet paper situation in 2020 was exponentially worse than this.

And there it is -

Finland has confirmed it will apply to join NATO despite Russia’s president warning it would be a “mistake” to do so.

Finland’s President Sauli Niinisto said joining the military alliance will “maximise” his country’s security following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

A formal membership application is expected to be submitted to NATO headquarters in Brussels next week.

I’d like to be the first to congratulate Russian President Vladimir Putin on this spectacular success in his “special military operation”.

He attacked Ukraine because he didn’t want NATO on the Ukrainian border, so he will have it on the Finnish border instead….and if he succeeds beyond his wildest dreams, he’ll also NATO on the Ukrainian border one of these days, too!

Way to go! Truly, some 5D chess 😄

The anti-Roe votes on the USSC are not especially Old White Men.

60% of the vote to repeal Roe are old white men. You don’t have to be 80 to be old relative to the overall population.

Take a look at US Army recruiting by state.

As someone who joined out of high school & straight off the farm for school money, I’m quite aware of who takes the President’s Dollar. It’s a big part of why I believe in a national service requirement that nobody gets out of.

60% of the Alito wing couldn’t do it in the face of 2 liberal female justices and and 1 old, liberal, white man. Kavanaugh, Barrett, and Thomas made it work.

Kavanaugh is 57. I know that by the standards of the Court that makes him a spring chicken, but by any normal standard that makes him old.

lawhawk  May 15, 2022 • 7:17:27am

Goddamned Nazis and enablers of same are all over the GOP and right wing echo chamber. They’re urged on by extremists online in 4chan, 8chan, and other fever swamps. Those forums form basis that end up in Fox segments by Carlson and others, amplifying it exponentially. It forms the basis of white power grievances that persons of color and “those” people are coming for their rights and liberties.

None of this is true, but the GOP doesn’t care and wont disassociate from the goddamned Nazis. That makes the GOP a Nazi party from top to bottom. You might have the enablers like McConnell or Stefanik or McCarthy issuing cover for actual Nazis like Trump and his ilk, or straight up white nationalists like Gosar or Scalise meeting with white nationalists and urging them on.

They all think unfettered access to any gun of your choosing at any age is sacred, while protecting lives already born is a price to pay to water the tree of liberty. It’s a fucking death cult and they don’t care.

They don’t care that 40,000+ die of gun violence annually. They don’t care that 1 million died from covid in 2 years - if that didn’t get people to realize the GOP is never going to care about your lives, nothing will.

The GOP is a broken party that thrives on cruelty and malicious conduct all with the intent to overthrow the govt and end democracy in American. They cannot win national elections on their own, need to rely on gerrymandering and control of the Senate to block action (and in a 48/50/2 Senate, that means GOP has more control over the agenda than Democrats who have nominal control if Manchin and Sinema vote with Democrats. The filibuster is anti democratic and the GOP will end it the first chance they get because they know the power it allows the tyranny of the minority to thwart an ambitious agenda to help all Ameircans - not just the 1% that the GOP cares about.

Yesterday was an hour run in 90 degree heat.

The keys 50k (31 miles) ultramarathon is next Saturday.

I have a great crew.

Mrsdm is the overall crew chief, driver and manages water and nutrition.

My BFF who was best man/woman at our wedding is navigator and manages all things related to keeping me cool. Ice packs, cold water for dousing, etc.

Klys, (you all remember Klys?) and Mr klys are flying in on Wednesday. She is my timekeeper, coach, spirit guide and pacer through the last 5 miles.

Mr K is the on the road and finish line photog.

We’ll hang out at the pond and drive down to Duck Key on Friday. We rented a house for the weekend.

Very first thing - the domestic terrorist is a goddamned Nazi. White nationalist fascist.

Nazi.

We need to start explicitly calling them what they self-identify as (they use euphemisms and their manifestos are explicit in what they want to do) but media waters down the brutal reality that the GOP and their white nationalist base are something - just not Nazis.

They’re Nazis. They have enablers, coconspirators, fellow travelers, and people who are along for the ride because of the power they think holding others down and denying them their rights gives them.

The Buffalo shooter drove halfway across the state to murder 10 and injure 3 others.

His gun and manifesto make explicit his intent.

It was a terror attack and it was carried out by a goddamned Nazi whose radicalization and belief system was shaped and cultivated by Fox, the right wing echo chamber online, and people like Carlson, Ingraham, and others who seek to deny persons of color their rights and freedoms.

If you lose 30% of an operational unit, that unit is likely almost useless. It of course depends a lot on what exactly has been lost, but individual elements aren’t interchangeable and it’s not like your phone battery that works fine until you hit 0%. There are rules of thumb for this sort of thing. It also tends to affect morale a bit, which gets you into a death spiral (pretty literally).

More on Turkey’s shenanigans wrt Sweden: news-upday-com.translate.goog

TL;DR is that Sweden has strict laws about exporting strategic products. And since 2018-04-01, the already strict laws were tightened more, and the National Strategic for Strategic Products Inspectorate has to also factor in the status of democracy in the importing country.

And as we all know, democracy in Turkey has been problematic ever since Erdogan came into power, which is probably why Sweden has nixed exports of weapons-grade products to Turkey. There are a couple of other factors that may have NOPEd exports to Turkey as well. And I believe Finland has similar legislation as well.

So, basically, Erdogan & Co are butthurt because Finland and (specifically) Sweden won’t bend the rules or have a minister interfere, totally disregarding that the laws concerning exports of strategic products have been there for decades (think as old as I am or more (50)), every time rules have been bent, it’s been discovered and the admin as well as the Inspectorate have been burned and suffered optics issues, not to mention the very long-standing tradition in Sweden of administration officials not interfering with the operations of the departments, using legislation etc.. This came into focus during Drumpf’s butthurt because the Swedish DoJ wouldn’t budge Re: the A$AP Rocky thing.

The spiral appears to be in motion. Two BTGs destroyed attempting to cross a river, and two regiments retreating into Russia in just the last few days. That’s a lot of tactical loss. Hoping today’s use of US M777s by Ukraine is as fruitful for them.

Infant formula (IF)is one the most highly regulated food products out there. There are three manufacturers in the US. Biden has exactly zero controll over production. Abbott’s manunfacturing line had a fuck up, FDA did what FDA should have done. If will get fixed. These are the same people (or at least a large Venn overlap) who also complain about FDA. Dead babies are a really bad thing for IF manufacturers. It was poor QC somewhere. Bacteria that cause foodbirne illness and infants are a bad mix.

That MFer could have killed a lot more if the response had been delayed. This is current Wikipedia entry so it’s not 100% confirmed. But it tracks.

At 2:31, Buffalo police received a call reporting shots fired at the store. The first responding officers and firefighters arrived a minute later and reported seeing bodies lying outside the building. At 2:34, a dispatcher first started informing responding officers of an active shooter situation at the store.[16] At 2:36, the shooter had returned to the front of the building, where patrol officers were able to talk him into dropping his gun after he put it to his neck.[13][16] The shooter’s livestream was removed by Twitch “less than two minutes after the violence started”, according to a spokesperson.[11]

I had to take a sec and try to read the op-ed just to see where the latest cry of “woke” came from. And I didn’t get even 1/3 into it before slamming into proof that this fucker didn’t actually watch either instance of “wokeism” (or whatever word they’re using):

The first blatant example of electioneering, on Star Trek Discovery, was a cameo by current and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as none other than the President of Federation of Planets. The second was a weird plot twist in the pilot of new show, Strange New Worlds in which the 2020 capitol riot is depicted and blamed for starting a Second American Civil War and the destruction of the planet. To put it more succinctly, Orange man bad.

Abrams was not introduced as the Federation President, she’s the President of United Earth, a role that she was thrilled to play as a major fan of Star Trek for years (unlike the author). And images from the 2021 Capital Riot were just a few among many presented as examples of how growing divides and distrust led to first a Second Civil War, then the Eugenics Wars, and eventually WWIII.

The rest of the whole thing is just a farking joke, showing such a shallow understanding of the franchise and the people behind it that I can’t be bothered to go much deeper. It’s another reject from the shallow end of the gene pool whining that he can’t enjoy mindless entertainment without being reminded of what a sack of shit he is.

Eclectic Cyborg  May 15, 2022 • 9:16:06am

I’m cleaning up some files this morning and came across this poem I wrote five years ago. Thought you folks would like it:

FLOWERS

There are many flowers growing in the garden of my life.
They symbolize its many moments: Wonder, joy and strife.
Some are tucked away almost completely out of sight,
While others are the centerpiece: strong, alive and bright.

I have some perennials and a little bit of sage,
Seems they get more beautiful and pleasant as they age.
Some represent the best of me at both my young and old,
A small cluster of daffodils and some dazzling marigolds

When the winter storms come rolling in and I get feeling chilly,
I warm myself with memories of my vibrant tiger lilys.
No matter where I go in life I will never be apart,
From this precious little garden and its row of bleeding hearts.

And out there in the center, in the beauty of it all,
There’s a special group of flowers that’s forever standing tall.
A new day opens in my life and the old chapter finally closes,
I’ll face it now, as I did before, with this lovely set of roses.

These are for the folks I love and they come in different hues,
But perhaps my favorite one of all is the one I chose for you.
It’s not too tall and not too short and firmly held in place.
It’s a deep and rather vivid blue, the embodiment of grace.

It’s seen the many seasons through, survived the stormy weather.
And when I’ve faced some troubled times, it’s helped keep me together.
It’s not a flawless specimen, there are nicks you can’t ignore.
But you know I think that makes me love this flower even more.

When I am tending to my garden, I treat the blue rose with great care,
Because it’s the one I need to know is always with me there.
It’s my favorite little flower, the one I’m always thinking of,
The one that lets me know that I am safe and I am loved.

It’s always been there, they’re just noticing it more and more because it’s not couched in metaphor or analogies. And also network censors are no longer as aggressive as they once were, especially when the series are on streaming services where its generally accepted that the people watching the content paid to do so. Nobody’s forcing these jackholes to watch NuTrek, yet they keep tuning in and then immediately whining that it’s not the Trek they grew up with under strict network censors that worried that saying “gay” might turn off viewers.

The creative staff of TNG wanted to do an episode about HIV/AIDS, but the network censors shot it down.

They wanted openly gay characters to show up, if not be part of the main cast itself, and likewise the censors axed the idea.

The aforementioned “The Outcast” originally was supposed to have the “androgynous’ race played by a mixed cast of men and women, with the character Riker enters a relationship with being played by a man, but the censors got scared and insisted on an all-female cast so that viewers wouldn’t get icked by the idea of two guys kissing.

You read the “behind-the-scenes” books and books by the cast and you quickly realize that Trek could have been way more “woke” if not for network censors scared white at the idea of viewers seeing something “objectionable.”

In less than two weeks, the Dem leadership went from “This is outrageous, we must do something!” to “STOP HARASSING MY FRIENDS!!!”

I’m not particularly interested in the Dune movies, but I just told my brother and we thought it would be AWESOME to see Christopher Walken as the Emperor.

NuDune is worth it just for the art. And the Hans Zimmer score.

Does…does anyone want to tell Joel about that time St Ron naturalized millions of those migrants and made them citizens?

Which, in a horrible way, might be an explanation if the guy had traveled to El Paso and shot a bunch of Latinos, but not blacks in New York.

I’m getting a shitload of Dylann Roof flashbacks today as I read more about this story and the manifesto, including that Roof’s own insane screed largely followed the same beats: Blacks are taking over the country, Dems are supporting this, they’re planning “genocide” of the white race, and the only way to stop all of it is to “fight back.”

And an increasing number of disinformation tweets saying that he was a Democrat or “leftist authoritarian” or ‘look at all the mass shooting by Black men.’

And I’m sure if I check the usual suspects at the moment the shooting was first reported, there were confident declarations that it was “Islamic terrorism” because that’s how the wingnuts responded when Roof’s rampage was first reported.

The Republican party’s response to fentanyl has been to absolve the drug company responsible, cut funding to help those who are addicted, and to say that immigration is the real pandemic.

Traditional Republicans would say exactly that. They’d go much further, and blame the users of various drugs that come in powder form for their fentanyl poisoning.

People with a communicable disease would be demonized by traditional Republicans, with them telling their audience that the disease is being intentionally spread by “those people.” They do still do this with refugees, who don’t even actually have the disease, and were vaccinated.

They don’t seem to care about anything but pretending to be superior to normal people, so we get all this inconsistent oppositional-defiant toddler bullshit from them.

The only thing missing in this cartoon of the Fear / Hate cycle in the overall container of Entitlement surrounding the whole contraption.

Entitlement is at the root of our current national emergency. In cruder terms, “falling out of the right vagina” can determine your outlook in life and your feeling that your life experience should be organized towards your own personal benefit at the direct expense of other people.

There was a report that he had his gun to his neck and police talked him into dropping his weapon.
