Thank you. I love that so much. I'm not having a good day today, and you made me feel so happy for the moments I was watching the cats. Really.

All I know is if I were a cat, I'd be "grooming myself" all goddamn day. 😁

By the time I followed the CNN link, I couldn't find anything about Huckabee Sanders. What's she up to now?

Expand full comment

She might be involved with the Arizona fake electors. I think.

Oh! I wish I were more surprised. Thanks for letting me know.

That article about Marines who snuck up on an A.I. by hiding under cardboard boxes and other ridiculous tricks noted that they were probably inspired by Looney Tunes and Metal Gear, but wonders "how do you walk like a fir tree?"

Dude who did that is obviously a fan of Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

"Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee" is the main reason I've vetoed all my wife's requests to buy some property in Arkansas.

"Cities don’t have militias, rural militias can’t take cities"

Literally, Oklahoma City, or does that not count?

see, he's talking about actually holding the cities, against an armed force.

I feel like he's missing the militia for the trees!

I noticed that, which is just a profound misunderstanding of what militias actually do. They don't need to hold anything, they'll be rampaging through, killing anyone they deem undesirable.

Jill Stein said the Jewish people have Poland? Huh wot.

95% of polish Jews were exterminated. Can Americans stop wanting to do population transfers on either side.

Someone should ask her if she investigated all the 2016 election interference with all the money she raised

Expand full comment

True that.

At the very least, stop trying to give one group of people the land of some other people because you won a war and assume you now have divine providence to shuffle the deck and set up the cards for the next war.

I used to daydream sometimes about what the world would be like now if after WWII we had done something truly benevolent like given over vast underpopulated areas of the US for Jewish asylum and settlement. Maybe they would have managed to edify the rural states with much needed commerce and investment against the ravages of extractive capitalism.

And maybe things in the Middle East would be just a little less fraught.

Early Zionists seriously considered to buy land for their new homeland in Argentina, but for good or bad, that didn't happen.

Expand full comment

Interesting. I hadn't known that was under consideration.

I've been mostly perturbed by the insistence by some that "Britain" created this mess in the first place and Americans are some how absolved as part of the prevailing alliance, even though we had a commission on how to resolve the issue that agreed with and endorsed the British proposal.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andinia_Plan for example.

Hmmph. Seems like there's far more discussion of the conspiracy theory about it online than there is actual concrete evidence to be had.

Expand full comment

Hence I said "considered". Obviously, it never went into more than "initial thoughts"; and we don't know how many were thinking in that direction.

Some did, that's all I am saying.

And maybe, it would be interesting to see timelines were those few followed up on their idea, and made it happen that way.

As an old restaurant pro, my go-to is just the health department score. I've been through enough inspections that the score tells me what I need to know.

98? Some small violations that were likely situational and I don't care. 88? They're storing raw meat over produce and it's time to leave.

Why can't you find the health department score card. It should be displayed in a prominent place. In South Carolina the score is posted on the entrance door.

It's easy to find here I'm NC, also. I didn't mean to imply they're difficult to spot.

I live in Texas and in more than five decades, I have never seen a health department score, anywhere. Until today, I didn't even KNOW there was such a thing as a health department score.

I'm still in awe that the Supreme Court is considering whether or not a president has the authority to overrule or straight-up disband and imprison (or worse) the Supreme Court...

You're one of the sane ones Kay.

I spent far too much time yesterday trying to conceive of the ruling this court will likely tie it's self in knots to achieve, where by some magic they can give Trump immunity, but not Biden.

A "it's only for Republican presidents" rule.

And then the rest of us will have our reason to join the students in the street.

If they are foolish enough to give presidents immunity, full stop... then I hope Biden will follow the spirit of their new law and "rid us of these meddlesome justices."

easy peasy, like they did with the decision that GWB won the election, this decision is not to be used as precedent.
