I have a weird prediction for the election.  Biden wins the presidency.  But the strength of his campaign going into the final week could made a big difference in the senate results.  If it looks like it's going to be close, then the Senate goes blue.  A strong Biden win however, leads to the Senate staying red.

Why?  People like balance in Washington (even though they say they want both sides working together.)  I think this is what happened in 2016, when it looked good for Clinton, the Senate and House went red.

McConnell knows this game all to well. I hate that he's such a rule maker on it.

He might take a little long, and it will definitely be someone younger... [checks Ted's age]... damn, he's only 49. 3 months shy of 50.

welp. maybe he is a true candidate... but i bet McConnell goes 40-45 and less well known for the "win".

Ok, I have had time to calm down a bit of RBG.  Enough Republicans have gone on record that they will not confirm a new Justice until after the election.  If the Turtle tries, and I'm sure he will, try and fill that spot, I think there is enough new Democrat blood in Congress to push and pass an expansion of the court.   There is no way Dems will simply sit back and allow that to happen without consequences, not anymore.

That doesn't mean Turtle won't push something through in the lame duck session after senators like McSally and Collins have lost and DGAF. And I'm not sure Dems will look to stack the courts in the first 2 years of a Biden administration. Then they probably lose the majority in the midterms and we are all further screwed.

we need at least 4, and i thought no way in hell Chuck would be one of them...

but, Chuck Grassley going back on his word? i won't be shocked if that happens either.

Today was one of the first days we had blue skies in a while. There was still a very visible layer of smoke, but I could actually see the mountains from work almost all day.

Here is a few days ago:

Sometimes those light buildings fade away completely. There is one with a black top (above the white camper) that is barely visible sometimes. It is also closer, maybe a half mile. I know the smoke is worse in other places, closer to the fires, but it is mind blowing to watch all day.

It was really clear all day, but windy, and when I crossed the lot I mentioned that it suddenly smelled really smoky, perhaps the wind was shifting. "Naw, the boss is barbequing for lunch."

Sometimes the National Guard does touch-and-go landing practice. Maybe 6 or 8 at a time, looping back around really low. They are huge, and their approach is WAY lower than any other planes, even the single props. Once it seemed like 5 cargo planes were landing in a row, but it was the same one, doing really small loops. Sometimes they do their touch-and-go's the other direction and take off from our end. When they loop around it sort of looks like they are circling my building. When we opened in May we were deemed 'in the flight path" and had to get FAA to determine otherwise, but now we can raise our gear in the air. So clean and shiny.

Sarah Jessica Farker: I like that the UID number on my weed ends in '1776' and that it was packed on what would have been my dad's 97th birthday.


I like it is produced in YOLO county for some reason.

https://twitter.com/seungminkim/status​/1307155643971833857?s=19

crap. not that it's surprising.

and i had to look up "keep your powder dry." figured it was related to boxing, but teh google says it's referring to gun powder.

yup. Mitch is armed and ready. and again, that's not a surprise... but still depressing, none the less, tho.

/fingers crossed for 4

While I'm sure Lemmy would tell Mitch and his gang of treasonous f*cks to f*ck off, here's a little related ditty from Motörhead

Keep Your Powder Dry

2020-09-19 12:00:12 AM  
The rain stopped this afternoon and the sun came out and bits of blue peeped out from among the clouds.  Dad and I went outside and stood in the driveway and gawked at the sky like we'd never seen it before.  After more than a week of choking smoke it was lovely to feel the dampness in the air and feel the sun on our backs.

And then the news of Justice Ginsburg's death.

2020 just will not farking let up, will it.

"Keep your powder dry" -- I knew that was a gunpowder reference deep in my bones ;)

In honor of death, and of my weed being packed on dad's birthday, I'm going to re-post his obit:

First.

I knew a guy in my college dorms whose last name was Ruth and we joked about not getting married.

So, data miners be damned, I'm sure they already know, my maiden name is the same as my father's in the obit. The name I crossed out may or may not have been my married name, or my middle and maiden name, or my middle and married name ;)

My brother Paul still lives across town. We moved from SF to Sunnyvale not long after dad passed. Brother Doug lives in a totally different state. My mother, Alice, passed away a bit over three years ago. I forget which year exactly it was that Aunt Florence passed, but I was able to inherit all of her Eastern Star jewelry.

I lurked here for years and have read the Maddite thread for a long time, but never felt like I had anything to add. However, this news has put the piss puddle on my shiat sandwich. I was laid off today and am unemployed for the first time in my adult life, then I get home to hear this news. I know Moscow Mitch will have nominee hearings before Ginsburg is even in the ground and we are well and truly boned!

What's your favorite deli meat?

Pastrami but I have to be careful how much of it I eat.


Someone else already has pastrami, you'll have to pick something else.

Can I interest you in a nice olive loaf? All the good choices have already been taken by people that didn't lurk. I was lucky and got in early and secured roast beef for myself.

But yeah, pastrami was one of the first ones to go. Last lurker got stuck with liver and onion on pumpernickel. Poor bastard.

clodcomplex: People have donated $10 million to McGrath tonight, which is essentially lighting money on fire.


Yeah....

I had a big snafu with ActBlue some weeks ago and since then I haven't donated AT ALL.

My problem was their tiny input field for 'Other amount'.

I'd typed in a 10 and for whatever reason, it loaded to a new page, and so I typed in my amount again. The text field was WAY too tiny to see what was in there...

..and because my information was saved with ActBlue Express, $1,010 got charged to my account before I knew it.

It has since been rolled back, minus about $12 for fees and maybe weirdness with having a PayPal balance, but I am really super hesitant to use ActBlue again until they fix that 'other amount' text input field.

So I'm kinda glad I have a good excuse to blow off any ActBlue donations any time soon.

but that first hit above... and i'm on a shared work PC... i think the settings on this PC have are not set up properly, tho, so the PC is remembering me even with me not logging in (shared instructor acct std in classrooms for our IT dept).

youtube visits on this PC seem to know/remember me too.

in past semesters, the update each term should include that the PC does not save the 'history' each evening upon forced reboot at 1am... but it seems that some terms the IT persons forget that step or setting and the PC acts like it knows me... more and more as each week goes by.

oh yeah, they updated it week 2... we're in week 5 now. that update person must of forget that trick. oh well...

Schumer could shut down the government by blocking it for a month unless McConnell forestalls his crazy court-packing plan.

But it will take a lot of outrage from Dems out in the country to produce such political will in the US Senate. So naturally it won't happen.

But of course. McConnell's precedent was always obstructionist bullsh*t and should not have been tolerated at the time. They were never going to allow that precedent to stand in the way of their objectives. And *when* they take away the ballot box from the people I really hope America is up to the task of rectifying the situation.

60 is the number of votes needed to pass major budgetary law.

Moscow Mitch changed the Senate rule for judicial appointments to a simple majority.

In Texas, all political signage must be a minimum of 150 linear feet from the entrance to the polling place.  The term "Entrance to the polling place" in locations where the polling station is located within another building can be interpreted as either the outer doors of the building or the inner doors of the actual polling station.

The senate requires 51 to be on the floor for a quorum. Democrats would need some other procedural alley to block or delay till a clock runs out, quorum calls and filibusters are not going to work.
 
2020-09-19 11:47:55 AM  
and on the 60-vote thing, someone probably just confused cloture and quorum. Regardless, McConnell eliminated the 60-vote cloture requirement for judiciary appointments.

Can only hope he ends up regretting that decision in January.

Darth_Lukecash: Auntie Cheesus: Darth_Lukecash: Taylor Mental: So I rode down to the general store tonight and passed our polling station at the volunteer fire department. They have a Trump-Pence 2020 sign out front. And they send me letters asking for a donation. Sheesh.

That is a direct violation of voting laws.

If it is a polling place, no political signs should be visible

In Texas, all political signage must be a minimum of 150 linear feet from the entrance to the polling place.  The term "Entrance to the polling place" in locations where the polling station is located within another building can be interpreted as either the outer doors of the building or the inner doors of the actual polling station.

Are you in a cold weather location?

If so, do you manage to wear them when it's cold? I have always had an issue with the soles not being cold-compatible, and getting really slick on cold pavement.

I am. Pretty sure Northern MN qualifies.

I wear 'em for the first part of winter, and then, when shiat gets really bad and everything is too slippery for life, I switch to a boot that's a little less prone to hardening in the cold.

The person I posted? A black friend who lived all his life in Phoenix AZ. Moved to Dallas because he heard it was "better"

A lot of his family moved their from New Orleans after Katrina when all of their family run business were wiped out.

Everything they tell me is it is one of the worse places they have ever lived.

Im not saying that all of Texas is racist. But what I'm saying is a majority and historically Texasisnt really known for their progressive stance once the West became civilized.
