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.

Was going to post this one tomorrow when I expect the second sim card to arrive and I can post with the phone instead of having to transfer and post via the PC and running the noisy generator. But since this is a terrible, no good, very bad day, I thought I should do it tonight.

Also, the power bank I bought less than six weeks ago died overnight. So I'm down to using the generator and/or van battery for device charging. One big improvement is the new phone will charge from zero to 100% in 20 minutes using the fast charger that came with it, rather than the four hours the old phone took.

Don't know if I'll buy another power bank, as I expected a lot more use out the last one. Hate to waste money on crap. I'll need to do a lot more research to determine if I was doing something wrong.

Good evening Maddites.

Let's be real here. Republicans will say or do anything to get what they want.....and what they want is absolute power. I fear for the outcome of the election more than ever. Trump will not respect the results of the election and with the Supreme Court in his pocket he won't have to. This country won't survive under Republican rule.

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.

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.

I heard in the other place the dems could simply walk. They need 60 to put one in. They only got 51.

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.

Whoever told you different is wrong. It's why I don't hang out there.

What they said was deny the needed 60 for Quorum. Basically, all Senate Dems stay home.


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.

I know it was in Missouri where I've lived for the last 22 years.

That is a direct violation of voting laws.

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.

I heard in the other place the dems could simply walk. They need 60 to put one in. They only got 51.


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

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
//like you tho i highly doubt the likelihood


In this case it refers to McConnell telling his members not to react too soon -- don't stake out their position before the media's take (read: Fox News spin job) has a chance to settle in and they can gauge public sentiment on his continued hypocritical shenanigans. If they see that his convoluted argument about the Biden rule plus it's okay when the Senate and WH are held by the same party is getting traction, go with announcing support for a vote before the election.

In other words, it's a dumb farking translation for backwoods, hillbilly thinking.

Thanks. They're about 7 years old at this point, maybe 8. Need to put new insoles in 'em but otherwise they're in great shape for being worn as often as they are.

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.

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...

If you can't login with a brand new account there is no way to be sure your seaech results aren't influenced by SEO, or some other AI profile tracking evil.

I'm certainly no expert, but AFIK public use networks like yours load the OS each time a new user logs on as a security measure against malware infection.  You can easily check this before signing on vs. after.

As far as the "dumb hillbilly" thing goes, they aren't all dumb.

About to pull the trigger on buying one of these puppies:
Fark user imageView Full Size


It will wire directly into the inverter with minimal hassle, other than needing a small hole cut in the panel next to the existing 120v power outlet. And it's a fast charger. The big advantage is it will negate the need to keep moving the battery between the camper and the van, which is a hassle, and a risk I'd rather not take due to the weight and possibility of dropping the thing on my foot while doing it in the dark.

And now starting to think about some kind of skirting around the camper to keep the wind from blowing underneath and freezing my ass off, as well as getting a heat source. Winter is coming, it's already 68F tonight and a bit chilly even with the windows zipped up. Using any kind of propane heat inside without flue venting is a recipe for carbon monoxide poisoning.

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.

BDR459: Sarah Jessica Farker: BDR459: Sarah Jessica Farker: "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:

[Fark user image image 850x1380]

And yes, my given name is 'Ruth'...

Last or first name is Ruth?

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.

Eastern Star jewelry.

What?


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_o​f​_the_Eastern_Star

Her husband was a 33rd level Freemason.

I've got some serious occult geek cred.

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.

They can't nominate a new person and get them in for the judgment on the election.

What they have to do is CHOOSE ONE CONSERVATIVE JUSTICE and force them OUT of the decision. Recusal, whatever. Just make sure that it's 7 justices and because RBG was liberal, it's a conservative who has to sit this one out.

What are you smoking??

Better chance that way of getting his base to come out to vote.  If he pushes it to before the election, creates a better chance of outraging his opponents to come out to vote.
