Open Thread Wednesday.

MORE DISCLAIMERSIt's open thread Wednesday folks, and I need your thoughts on a few things.

Do you believe Stormy or Donald? 

Do you believe Mark Cuban? 

Is trump speaking to witnesses about what they told Robert Mueller a big deal?

There was another shooting in a school in America today. Did we really think that Parkland was going to be the last one? 

Will white folks ever learn that black face is NEVER cool?

Is a ten day suspension without pay a sufficient punishment for a teacher who calls his students the n- word?

If you are here on the East Coast have fun digging out of the white stuff tomorrow.

This thing with Stormy is a hoot. It always seems to bring a smile. The monster didn't actually bother to sign the non-disclosure agreement. So why would he consider it a binding contract? Just fucking stupid, I guess. Well he's the expert on these type of things.

My signature is good anywhere in the State of California.

If I gave a rat's ass, I would challenge the constitutionality of demanding or paying a woman to keep quiet about her intimate relationships. I'm not sure that's what non-disclosure agreements are all about. Don't they usually have more to do with not discussing an argued and settled civil suit? I would be more interested in finding out how much Trump paid this poor woman to have sex with him. Let's go ahead and milk this thing for all it's worth. Shame the Donald.

Two casualties doth not a school shooting make. See typical RW responses to complaints from bleeding heart liberals that school shootings are occurring every three or four days in the U.S. Certainly shootings on college campuses shouldn't count. Be fair, you guys.

No one should ever believe Donald, about anything. He is a pathological liar.

Do you believe Mark Cuban?

Don't know. But I'll admit that some of the stories about how the Mavericks' corporate offices were run make the team sound like a super-gropey frat house.

Is trump speaking to witnesses about what they told Robert Mueller a big deal?

It should be a big deal, but won't be, because congressional Republicans are determined to aid and abet the crime spree known as the Trump White House.

There was another shooting in a school in America today. Did we really think that Parkland was going to be the last one?

I'm absolutely certain nobody thought that.

As ever, though, the NRA sends their Thoughts And Prayers™.

Will white folks ever learn that black face is NEVER cool?

Not with the state of the American educational system. Ask a high school kid what minstrel shows were, and you will probably receive a blank stare in response. If a person doesn't know the history of blackface, why would they necessarily conclude that blackface is offensive?

*Please note: I am talking about situations like the 4th grader in the linked story who innocently dressed up in blackface to celebrate Colin Powell for Black History Month.

I am NOT talking about, say, college students dressed up in blackface for "pimps and hoes" parties. Those people's intention is to mock black people; they know they are being offensive. In that case, the problem is malice, not ignorance.

Is a ten day suspension without pay a sufficient punishment for a teacher who calls his students the n- word?

It's unclear whether he actually called his students racial slurs. The article is pretty vague on this point. But if he's instructing his students that little black boys are no damn good and nobody should date them ... yeah, I think it's safe to assume he's trying to teach racism to his class and should be fired.

1) I believe her, but also think she may have to return the 130 large if she decides to go forward with making money off of the story. Just because Fergus is a corrupt old prick who never pays what he's supposed to pay doesn't mean doing so is legal or a good thing.

2) No, but it doesn't sound that plausible that it happened the way she said it did, either.

3) I don't think there's anything illegal about it per se, but he might want to be careful not to help their case for obstruction of justice by leaning on people who have already been interviewed. This is not an assistant DA in Manhattan he's dealing with. He won't get away with the kind of crude mob wannabe tactics he's kept himself out of real trouble with for most of his life.

4) Nope. According to Wikipedia, they happen on average about every 64 days.

5) Probably not. Even some of the smarter ones can be dense and oblivious about that.

6) Probably not.

So now let's see how Fergus' base reacts to getting specifically buggered by the new bank deregulation bill that has a carve out on mortgage regulations for manufactured housing. That's right. They're trying to pass a bill making it legal for banks to fuck over people getting mortgages on trailer homes.

California Gov. Jerry Brown took office in 2011 with a $27 billion deficit. He won voter support for huge tax hikes on the rich in 2012, and voters reauthorized them in 2016. Brown leaves office w/a $6.1 billion surplus.
Take a note: Taxing the rich works.

Gosh, I dunno, it seems to me it's been the Republicans, not the Democrats, who've spent decades telling everyone that it's perfectly appropriate for the government to act as the Christian morality patrol and monitor and control citizens' consensual sexual activity in the name of "family values." They have been the ones injecting Jesus into everything.

But that has all mysteriously gone out the window (at least for straight men cheating on their third wives) and the Bible Bashers are turning a blind eye, now that Trump has arrived on the scene.

The election of our 45th president has been very helpful in revealing what the Republican party actually stands for. And it ain't "liberty," or "small government" -- or, certainly, "family values."

What they self-evidently stand for is greed and racism. Those are the real values of the GOP, and we will not let them go back to regularly scheduled hypocrisy once Trump has crashed and burned. We will not forget.

This is going from the ridiculous to the ludicrous ... what's next Melania dressing up like Catherine The Great and fucking a horse? ... seems real simple ... if the court voids the agreement then Stormy probably has to give back the $130K ... if not Stormy may be on the hook for $1M if the arbitrator has in fact declared her in violation as Butt Trumpet's prick lawyer's lawyer claims ... We have seen this movie before when Miss PA Sheena Monnin said that Butt Trumpet's pageant was rigged and Butt Trumpet dragged her into rigged arbitration and Sheena was assessed $5M damages (Butt Trumpet's very same prick lawyer bragging how he ruined her life) ... She coughed up $1M from the proceeds of in turn suing her dumbass attorney who told her she didn't have to show up for the arbitration hearing ... unknown how/if the remaining $4M was paid off

"Take a note: Taxing the rich works."

Those are great numbers, to be sure. One must remember Jerry Brown took over in the aftermath of the financial crisis and leaves during the Trump boom, so today's balance figures are somewhat illusory and probably temporary. California is home to Silicon Valley, the major driver of wealth creation in the country - this is and will remain the source of revenue for the state. However, a lot of other business has left and the state will be dangerously reliant on a single industry.

California is blessed with an incredible bounty - gold, timber, oil, a climate that does not require much heating in the winter or cooling in the summer, the richest agricultural land in the world. They inherited a great infrastructure and the greatest university system in the world from previous generations. California ports receive the huge volume of trade from Asia for the rest of the country. They should be the richest state, and they can afford things other places can't.

The tax increases have increased revenues. Social spending was not cut, but spending on critical infrastructure was, as evidenced by the Oroville Dam failure last year. This a bill that will have to be paid.

California is becoming Latinized. Ten million native Californians have left for other states and been replaced by 10 million new Californians, mostly Mexicans. The middle class has shrunk more dramatically than anywhere else in America. They have a super-rich coastal elite and a huge poor population. California now has the highest poverty rate and worst schools in America.

Brown is likely the last white male governor of California. Future administrations will be faced with increasing demands for spending and a leveling off of revenue growth. I love California, but it's best days are in the past.

I hate to break it to you guys, but no one really cares if Trump banged a dozen porn stars or not. We know who The Donald is and stuff like that is part of the package.

People elected him to cut immigration, cut regulations, pursue energy independence, lower taxes, create growth, get people back to work, get the military back in shape, and clean up the corruption in Washington.

He is doing that, and that is all that matters.

It may have passed as entertainment decades ago, but many decent whites have moved waaaayyyyyyy past the blatant racism of such acts.

The stoopid fucking wasicu wingnuts can't let go of racism. They think it is funny and just a major part of their culture to denigrate minorities.

NYT: To Fight Racism, Let’s Blow Up the Housing Market Again By Forcing Banks to Make Loans Their Underwriting Standards Consider Risky:

"An alarming new study by the Center for Investigative Reporting’s online publication Reveal found that African-Americans and Latinos were far more likely to be denied conventional mortgages than whites even when income, loan size and other factors were taken into account."

But … “Credit score was not included because that information is not publicly available”. So, their regression analysis was basically worthless.

"Banks often claim that they deny mortgages in minority communities based on credit scores — but that claim is almost impossible to check, given that the credit scores are not publicly available".

It’s a mystery wrapped inside a riddle inside an enigma.

Here’s a graph created by Dr. Caroline Reid of the San Francisco Fed who almost nobody has ever seen. Default rates by ethnicity among the disastrous 2005 vintage of mortgages:

Idiotic comment. California's high energy costs are due to the fact that they shut down all traditional fossil fuel plants, forbid new nukes, and can no longer approve dams for hydro power.

Enron has been gone for over 15 years, and has nothing to do with California's situation today.

Also, as is your wont, tying Enron to Bush is rank revisionism, as Enron grew up with a lot of assistance from the Clinton administration from 1992-2000. The scandal broke in October of 2001, 8.5 months after Bush took office.

Dasket full of debunkable lies right there, Anonymous I did not have sex with that woman said.

Once wingnut lawyers stole most of the settlement money, Jones had little or nothing to show for letting sroopid fucking wingnuts use her for their own purpose of trying to destroy Clinton. Gawd, you wingnuts are despicably, deplorably dumbasses.




Paula Jones agreed to drop her sexual harassment lawsuit against President Clinton on Nov. 13 in return for $850,000 – but no apology or admission of guilt from the president.

Two weeks later, when the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed the suit, it marked the conclusive end of Clinton's battle against Jones and her conservative backers. Seven months earlier, the case was dismissed by a district-court judge as having no merit, but Jones appealed.

mike from iowa said...

Jones ended up with 200000 when she could have had much more if she would have settled much earlier with her original attorneys. Dumbass fuckimg broad got caught up in the limelight and allowed her attorneys to use and abuse her for their own ends.

William Jefferson Clinton got rid of a nuisance suit, which is all it ever was, admitted no guilt and got the gold digging bitch and her disbarrable attorneys out of Clinton's hair for less than he originally offered her to go away.

What happened in California?

Over the last year, California electricity rates have increased by as much as 40%, and the state is holding billions of dollars in energy debt that will eventually add even more cost to consumers. Also in 2001, California experienced six days of rolling blackouts, the state's first statewide power curtailments since World War Two.

Utilities in the state, which crafted the deregulation law, were allowed to overcharge consumers approximately $23 billion for electricity over the last five years as a result of the law. These companies, however, felt the sting of deregulation when companies like Enron began massively overcharging for electricity on the wholesale market for power. Pacific Gas & Electric, the state's largest utility filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in April 2001 and, in a move that consumer groups are challenging in federal court, the state Public Utilities Commission secretly agreed to a ratepayer funded $4.9 billion bailout of the second largest utility, Southern California Edison.


Stoopid fucking wingnuts made deregulation possible and criminally profitable. When California utilities asked Dickless Cheney for relief he basically told them to let Enron and others fuck them in the ass.
