Of course there’s a video: it’s 2022, there’s always a video (and from the Murdoch Post, no less!).

From Rudy’s overwrought description, it sounded like he was nearly body-tackled: I notice he scarcely even twitched from that pat on the back….

That said, though, I still don’t think it was right for the dude to touch him (the “scumbag” comment was OK by me, however: pithy as well as accurate)

re: #299 Dangerman

Ok.

Let’s get real here

No other democratic country has a “filibuster”*.

The “filibuster” is, even in America, a recent invention.

The “filibuster” is not a protection against the “tyranny of the majority”.

Just fucking dump it. Carve out an exception that is as big as Trump’s ass.

(* Actually many countries have an anti-filibuster — for example in the UK the government can explicitly limit debate on a law, and the only way around that is a vote of no confidence, in France the government can invoke article 42 of the constitution, which says the law pases unless the parliament votes no confidence…)

Overlord? Perhaps some tips on the right flour and technique?

Check your State Extension Service. They will have all kinds of instructions.

Simple. Do everything. Stand up. Challenge them at every turn. Don’t give up right away when a bill doesn’t pass. Do it again, and again. If you convince yourself you’re gonna lose without even trying you will DEFINITELY lose.

re: #11 John Hughes

Back to trying to understand what the “filibuster” is for (assuming your not Bob Denard).

How to avoid the “dictatorship of the majority” in geographically diverse union?

What about the EU “qualified majority”?

In order to pass under QMV rules a measure needs
55% of the member states and states representing 65% of the population to vote for it.

Obviously the exact numbers could be tweeked*, but isn’t it a reasonable compromise between “dictatorship of acres” and “crush small states”?

(Autocorrect keeps wanting to say twerked).

But America only looks to 16th century England for examples.

This is so infuriating; just like the GOP managed to turn liberal into a slur or calling those objecting to racism “racists’, they are trying to make insurrection a meaningless term by characterizing every group who protests GOP crimes or assaults on our freedom as an insurrection. GOP organizations have a long record of destroying any possibility of meaningful dialog or progress in our nation.

“How do we fix this?”

Long thread about what we can’t do, what we can do, and the work involved (and rightfully calling out whites demanding blacks save then again):

Elizabeth Warren has a plan for that.

Warren urged voters to vote “like a laser” in the midterm elections in November by electing Democrats who are willing to eliminate the filibuster to help codify Roe, which she hopes Democratic Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman and Wisconsin Senate candidate Mandela Barnes would do if they are elected. The Senate currently lacks the 60 votes needed to overcome the filibuster.

“We (need to) get two more senators on the Democratic side, two senators who are willing to protect access to abortion and get rid of the filibuster so that we can pass it,” Warren said. “John Fetterman, I’m looking at you in Pennsylvania. Mandela Barnes, I’m looking at you in Wisconsin. We bring them in, then we’ve got the votes, and we can protect every woman no matter where she lives.”

What about the EU “qualified majority”?

In order to pass under QMV rules a measure needs
55% of the member states and states representing 65% of the population to vote for it.

Obviously the exact numbers could be tweeked*, but isn’t it a reasonable compromise between “dictatorship of acres” and “crush small states”?

(Autocorrect keeps wanting to say twerked).

But America only looks to 16th century England for examples.

That’s because the nerd word is “tweak”.

The problem with our Democratic leaders is that they don’t seem to be willing to acknowledge the extent to which Trump, McConnell, and the Republicans have changed the rules on which our politics operate. They’re still relying on institutionalism and process and the illusion of Senate collegiality and pretending that the behavioral norms the Republicans destroyed still exist.

They are not adapting to the new political realities and failing to address the existential threat Republicans pose to continued democracy. It’s a failure of imagination, and they’re unwilling to get their hands dirty fighting in the trenches.

Are Dems perfect on this right now? On anything? No, of course not. They’ve never been. But again, no one should be asking them to be perfect. Just better enough that we can try and move forward. The problem is that right now, people seem to be asking for purely performative actions or shit that runs right into problems like the Hyde Amendment or shit that requires vastly larger margins than we realistically have right now. And when we’ve seen Dems try to do the very performative actions that have been asked of them, they get shitkicked for doing it wrong or for not doing some other random thing instead. Meanwhile, the GOP is gliding along unscathed because everyone has just decided to elide along Republican involvement in any of this shit and wants to gangbeat on Dems for not waving the magic wand they supposedly have.

Dems end our involvement in the forever war after 20 years? “Shut up, you fucked it up, all your fault, all you fault!!”

Dems hammer out an infrastructure deal after several misstarts that still has to go through reconciliation because of GOP intractability? “Not good enough, shut up, all your fault, all your fault!!”

Dems try to hold a vote on things like ending the filibuster, or Roe codification, or whatever issue is known to not have enough votes but are still demanded to “put Republicans on the record?”. “You failed, you have complete control of everything! All your fault, All your fault!!!”

The latest disaster with Roe and Dobbs? The time to fix that was 2016, and so many of the people complaining were the ones who thought it was too cringe to care about the election or pooh-poohed warnings about the Court then. And now they’re screaming about the uselessness of voting, how Dems don’t do anything so damn them all, never vote for them again, and ensure the only thing anyone ever talks about is how much Dems suck forever.

And our media is happy to pass that shit along because shitting endlessly on Dems while stenographying GOP talking points verbatim is considered “balance”. So no wonder no one hears about the Dems actually doing shit, what plans are actually out there, because all anyone hears is how Dems are endless failures that all of America should hate forever and do nothing because they’re failures, not because of GOP obstruction, a rogue court, or endless disinfo campaigns mischaracterizing what Dems actually do or support, instead holding folks like Manchin or Cuellar or whoever’s convenient as the end all be all representation of the Dems .

There’s no magic fix for what’s going on right now, and it seems like that’s all anyone is screaming about when they scream for Dems to “do something”, again, like there’s a magic wand they could be waving to fix it all. The reality is that the disasters of 2014 and 2016, along with getting only a fully split Senate in 2020 means we take what we can, how we can, and try to push for larger margins to fix things, as well as push for more local actions to protect what the Supreme Court has fucked us on because TFG was handed 3 court vacancies to fill out.

And yes, Dems can be doing better to put the message out there, to have some kind of unified message. But my pragmatism screams that we focus on the main villains here rather than rampage on circular firing squads damning Dems for being at fault for everything the media narrative has successfully spun magnifying Dem faults and obfuscating GOP sins at every turn.

Because at this point, it seems like folks really are just about to set fire to the only viable opposition to the GOP in time for a massacre in ‘22 and ensure that absolutely nothing gets fixed then.

Health, safety and environmental regulations are necessary to maintain a viable Free Market that works for everyone in that they help ensure that the costs of prevention, cleanup and health care are not socialized while the profits are privatized.

But none of the advocates of an unregulated Free Market want it to work for the benefit of the consumers and employees, it is only supposed to be there for the producers and employers.

My cousin is someone I would consider a reasonable conservative (he refused to vote for Trump in with 2016 or 2020) and although he opposes abortion, he believes in choice while supporting options for single mothers who want to keep their children or give them up for adoption.

But the those should be part of a larger range of options beyond raising a child as a single mother with little or no prospect of assistance from the father, or handing the child over to strangers.

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. The GOP are the fucking worst, and they will lie endlessly about everything, and no one in the media calls them out for it.

For instance, we’ve got fuckers claiming that overturning Roe should mean it should be easier to get adoptions. Yeah, where the fuck were you for 50 fucking years trying to make it easier to set up adoption plans and less costly for those loving families trying to grow their families through adoption?

That’s right, these same fuckers were denying access to health care for pregnant moms, food assistance for babies, health care for babies, housing, education, and treatment options to make it more likely that babies will not be born prematurely due to addictions by the mother.

They fought to cut all of those programs. They tried ending Obamacare countless times, including judicially when they couldn’t pass it legislatively. They’re still at it, and will not stop until they’ve rolled back women’s rights 200+ years.

This past weekend our town held a Pride parade, and went in support as allies. The community stands against bigotry, but right wing extremists will try imposing their white nationalist Christian fascist beliefs on everyone, trampling all over my 1A right and freedom from their religious beliefs. They’ll try doing it through legislation and via the courts, and this SCOTUS will enable the worst of it.

Mind you, these agencies promulgate regulations because Congress assigned them that right. The Congress doesn’t want to spell out specifics, so they grant authority to carry out the will of the people.

This Court will hamstring the EPA and undermine public health because that’s a longstanding goal of the Federalist Society - to end the administrative state because it harms billionaires’ abilities to make even more money and burden shift to those least able to endure them.

They told me that Jasper was started by by German immigrant families, and that the identity is still quite strong. One person told me the social issues they faced were mostly the result of Mexican and Central American immigrants. There are virtually no Black people there. There were rumors that high school basketball and football games where teams from Evansville—which does have a large Black population—were scheduled for daytime so that teams wouldn’t have to be in town after dark. That may just be rumor based on Jasper, like most Indiana towns, was a sundown town.

In part it’s groups of migrant farm workers opting to not move on after the harvest is over. So you can get into rural Indiana and find that the little crossroad “town” that had a church and a couple of bars now has a small Mexican restaurant or cafe as well.

For 50+ years, we were told that Roe would never be overturned. That Repubs would be damned fools for doing it, that reaching down and grabbing the third rail would be political suicide, and the most they’d do would be to nibble at the edges.

Anybody who still thinks this Court gives a flying fuck about precedent or the ramifications is deluded or lying to your ass.

For 50+ years, right wingers have been insisting they’ll try and overturn Roe, but media outlets would parrot the line that it was settled law and would not be overturned.

The GOP doesn’t care what happens. They’re out to roll back all the substantive due process rights. Roe was just the start, because this decision lays out the pathway (as did the Alito draft) to end all substantive due process rights.

Nothing is more coercive than the whim of a HS football coach.

Any player who did not participate already knew that they would lose playing time/position because [Coachspeak] … can’t trust that player[/Coachspeak]

As many of you know, former Head Football Coach here(for 4 years, coached for 20 overall). I know of many a football coach here in KY that have prayed at the end of the game with their teams, while a public school employee. I worked as the coach of a Catholic High school, so obviously our pre and post game prayers would have no issue. Many of these men that I know that did this knew what they did was not allowed/approved but they didn’t care. As a power dynamic many of these coaches(mostly in rural areas and small counties) were the most powerful public school employee, and just dared the district to do something about it. Some of them did the same thing when it came to COVID protocols* over the past two seasons. Too often, some of these coaches [Coachspeak]…eat, drink, and breathe Football[/Coachspeak], which puts blinders on and eventually becomes its all about them. Because of the responsibilities of a Head Football coach, there is a pathway to become an insulated dictator of what you are responsible for. Several Head Coaches that I am personally close with(more likely to be in their late 30’s-early 40’s, and more likely to be black.) hate that way of coaching, and have pushed to try and find and teach other younger guys a different way. Being a leader and being a responsible decision maker doesn’t have to be a dictatorship. I was proud that I could be a disciplinarian without having to yell and scream, loose control and curse a kid out. All of this comes back to say that this ruling is about white, Christian, power.

*I took COVID protocols incredibly important. Pissed off people for doing the right thing. Some coaches did not and it caused issues. Games being canceled or rescheduled may or may not have been in the control of a coach, but how responsible were you with you team, and how well did you impress on these young people to be responsible. The team we were supposed to play in game two last year ended up with a COVID outbreak. I don’t believe that it was taken seriously by the coaches. Eventually 55 of their 70 players were either positive or quarantined by close contact. Our game was canceled, and the Head Coach who also tested positive would eventually be hospitalized and died a few weeks later.

Czechs are livid at Russia’s missile strike against that shopping center in Kremenchuk.

But not without their typical black sense of humor, mixed with their outrage; this comment nicely sums it up -

“Kreml už hlásí, že šlo o politováníhodnou chybu, protože raketa původně mířila na mateřskou školu” which translates to, “The Kremlin is already reporting that this was a regrettable mistake, because the missile was originally aimed at a kindergarten.”

This SCOTUS has decided that if you get cancer and you’re pregnant, you’re fucked.

All too many cancer treatments can result in fetal complications, or abortions are recommended to save the life of the mother.

Now? You’ve got cancer, you’re pregnant, and you’re fucked because you may now have to carry to term, and die for it because your cancer can’t get properly treated while pregnant.

How’s that pro life? That’s a death sentence for women you get cancer and pregnant.

Interesting. Perhaps a lot of doctors might start prescribing a particular ulcer medication, with a very clear warning: If you use this while you’re pregnant, it will cause a miscarriage. This is an off-label use. It will cause a miscarriage if you use it off-label.

Using the medication in such a way would become a prosecutable offense in many states. Even the doctors would be prosecuted if the state could prove some “reasonable suspicion” on the doctor’s part that the medication might be used is such a way.

Welp.

Prominent crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital has defaulted on a loan worth more than $670 million. Digital asset brokerage Voyager Digital issued a notice on Monday morning, stating that the fund failed to repay a loan of $350 million in the U.S. dollar-pegged stablecoin, USDC, and 15,250 bitcoin, worth about $323 million at today’s prices.

3AC’s solvency crunch comes after weeks of turmoil in the crypto market, which has erased hundreds of billions of dollars in value. Bitcoin and ether are both trading slightly lower in the last 24 hours, though well off their all-time highs. Meanwhile, the overall crypto market cap sits at about $950 billion, down from around $3 trillion at its peak in Nov. 2021.

Voyager said it intends to pursue recovery from 3AC (Three Arrows Capital). In the interim, the broker emphasized that the platform continues to operate and fulfill customer orders and withdrawals. That assurance is likely an attempt to contain fear of contagion through the wider crypto ecosystem.

“We are working diligently and expeditiously to strengthen our balance sheet and pursuing options so we can continue to meet customer liquidity demands,” said Voyager CEO Stephen Ehrlich.

Just like the “white lives” Freudian slip, I’ll follow Maya Angelou: When someone shows you they are, believe them the first time.

However, it’s been clear for years that we have a problem with the atmosphere we operate in, where, even on our own side, we are far too credulous of anything that makes Dems look bad, especially if they reinforce an individual’s priors, and far too incredulous of anything that speaks bad of Republicans, especially where lip service and apologia come in. And a huge amount of that is down to disinfo campaigns in both traditional media and social media. And for both, it’s clear it doesn’t matter if you personally consume them, because you still operate in a system where both are highly influential and highly tilted toward rapid dissemination of lies and panic. Thus, Dem sins are magnified, and GOP sins are papered over, because “surely they can’t be THAT bad” while the worst of Dems is always assumed and just straining for confirmation from anything, even highly dubious sources.

Does it suck? Yes, but it’s literally the goddamned truth. We’ve seen how consequential judges can be at every level, and the only reason that Manchin and Sinema are as flippant and intractable as they are is precisely because they realize that control of the Senate literally depends on them. Does that make them shitty people? Yes. But it’s the reality of the board, we literally cannot afford to have them defect or we lose the tenuous control of the senate we barely have now which means no hope of passing shit or approving shit. The reality on the ground is far different for the parties, especially with how much the GOP is a far more distilled caucus and base, far more homogeneous in their goals and mindset, than Dems who have little choice but to act as the haven for those forced out of the GOP side for the sake of that distillation.

And honestly, I don’t see people not blaming Manchin or Sinema. But I’m seeing far far far more people blaming the entirety of the Dems for Manchin or Sinema than even laying a smidgen of blame on the Republicans for being the intractable monolithic bloc that they’re acting as.

You want Manchin and Sinema to suffer? The way to do that without shooting ourselves in the foot repeatedly is to expand our margins so Manchin and Sinema are irrelevant, that they’d be votes #53 and #54 rather than #49 and #50. Until then? We have to play on the fragile playing field we have. And it sucks, but pretending it’s something it isn’t is going to fuck us worse than anything.

The school’s lawyers and Kennedy’s lawyers offered dramatically different accounts of what happened in his final months on the job, and a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit criticized the “deceitful narrative” created by the coach’s legal team…

The appeals court found that Kennedy had never been disciplined for offering private prayers, but instead “prayed out loud in the middle of the football field” after one game surrounded by players, parents and members of the opposing team, as well as a local politician and reporters, after his intent to pray was broadcast through local news and social media.

Much better for women to use aidaccess.org. A foreign doctor will prescribe the pills, and a foreign pharmacy will fill the prescription and mail it to the woman, so the state can’t prosecute the doctor or pharmacy. So far, most states aren’t prosecuting women, though that will change.

When we lived in Lexington, KY my sons were part of the recreational soccer program. The elder boy was placed on a team whose coach (and his wife) had graduated from Wheaton College—the Illinois Wheaton and not the MA Wheaton. He held a brief team prayer after every practice and game. I decided not to make a stink about it, but it irritated me. The coach was a good person, but I didn’t appreciate his assumption that everyone would be ok with it.

My kids already had religious indoctrination. Whenever we visited my parents’ place, my mom would sign them up for Vacation Bible School. I hated VBS when I was a kid, but now it is sometimes a slick production where churches by media packages with videos, games, and songs. (One song I still sing: “My God is an Awesome God” I sing to my dog on walks just so she knows she’s an awesome dog.) Anyway, I would just talk to them about what they were learning. I didn’t try to contradict it, but I didn’t push it either—and really, how could I since I haven’t been a regular church-goer for decades.

re: #339 Belafon

I think the Fox News contingent isn’t going to watch, no matter what. For the rest of us, it’s just filling in the blanks for a bigger story, but doesn’t change the outcome, or what anybody paying attention already knew.

So far, nothing has happened, even when in possession of the facts. Foreclosures happen faster. Perhaps the committee should forward their findings to a mortgage company or a collection agency. So far, the DOJ doesn’t want to touch this with a ten foot pole.

I have so little faith in anything of substance happening it feels more like a panel’s analysis of the first three seasons of Gilligan’s Island. And at least one of the panelists is overjoyed Roe v Wade was overturned.

Actually, ivermectin is one reason banning off-label use of medications is never going to happen. And there aren’t enough crazy D.A.s to prosecute the individual cases of individual doctors.

(One more tactic, if it becomes necessary, is to flood the courts with case after case of people violating your particular law, until he nails and the courts break under the stress, and the locals realize that other crimes aren’t being prosecuted and there’s no room in the prisons for he thieves and murderers.

Perhaps it’s just me, but the only thing I see is effectively a regression to the time when daughters were seen as the “property” of their fathers until they were wed off. That the scenario is going to be the young woman’s family arguing why the young man’s family should be financially responsible for leaving their daughter as “damaged goods.”

Under current law, once paternity is established, child support starts to accrue based on the earning potential of the non-custodial parent. It can’t be discharged in bankruptcy and is owed until it is paid.

That tweet was from March 22. Braun walked that back and no one since then has supported that heinous view.

Given ZQP behavior across the board, I choose not to believe the walk-back, and regard it as Braun mistakenly assuming he was talking to conservative media when he wasn’t.

I heard a report last week or so about that — once the fetus is removed from the fallopian tube (best case — sometimes the tube has to go too), they check for “fetal heartbeat.” If they don’t find it, them the procedure is over. Otherwise, they insert the fetus (under sterile conditions, of course) into the uterus and wait for the “fetal heartbeat” to stop, which doesn’t take long.

Waste of time and money, but it allows them to save women’s lives without putting themselves in legal jeopardy.

Which sounds great, until you look at the national statistics for unpaid child support which is over $110 billion with almost 90% of those debts being 5 years of older.

I am truly taken aback that Gorsuch and Thomas sided with the decent judges on an issue, while Roberts was on the other side. Every time that a member of the unholy 5 does the right thing surprises me anew.

That’s an important part of “Calvinball”: you cannot know that will happen next. The only consistent rules of the game are that Calvinball may never be played with the same rules twice and that each participant must wear a mask black robes.

Off-label uses for medication have been standard practice for decades by competent doctors; it would severely hamper treatments for cancer and other serious ailments if no one had access to medications until they have been fully evaluated for that condition.

Yeah, it’s not just “illegals” who use fake names and SSNs to work in this country. Remember hearing the story just recently about an asshole who owed over $50K in unpaid child support but wasn’t getting his paycheck garnished because he was using his brother’s SSN to get jobs.

re: #343 No Malarkey!

It is already law that custodial parents can get free legal representation from the state to sue the other parent to obtain child support.

It’s only free if the custodial parent is on some form of benefits. Otherwise, the state thinks they have no dog in this fight, hire your own lawyer.

That may vary from state to state, but in Kentucky you do not have to be receiving benefits to get state representation.

In one of my anthropology classes, we discussed the difference between dowry cultures and bride-price cultures.

In a dowry culture, a woman is a burden. Her birth family will pay handsomely to be rid of her, and the new husband needs compensation to take on the responsibility of having her in his home.

In a bride-price culture, a woman is a great treasure. Her family hates to let her go, but if the compensation is high enough it means the new husband values her immensely and will take good care of this super-expensive thing he had to save up for.
