Open thread.

MORE DISCLAIMERSIt's open thread night, and I need your opinions on a couple of big news items.

For instance, how will Justice Kennedy deciding to call it quits affect the future of the Supreme Court? trump gets another appointment, and that should scare every person who is not a card carrying Nazi.

With the huge upset of a mainstream democratic congressional candidate in New York by a left leaning upstart, does that mean there is a huge split in the democratic party? Or, is it all just wishful thinking on the part of pundits and the chattering class to make the mid-terms more interesting?

"With the huge upset of a mainstream democratic congressional candidate in New York by a left leaning upstart, does that mean there is a huge split in the democratic party?"

Why yes, it does.

The Democratic Party consists of white liberals and a growing contingent of disparate non-white groups, held together by anti-white hatred. The old white leadership is being pushed aside by a new generation of the people they imported to win elections. It should have been obvious that the identity politics they have pushed for decades would mean the triumph of tribalism over ideology. The idea of an America united by common values and ideas is dead. They are learning the hard lesson that in a multi-ethnic democracy, blood is all that matters.

Live by diversity, die by diversity.

You get one when you register as a Republican these days.

We knew Kennedy was going to retire sooner or later, and whenever it was it was gonna change the outlook of a bunch of precedent for holding up to challenges, but if McConnell had done his damn job in 2016, it would just be balancing things back out now instead of slanting things toward the fucking 1850s.

As for the Democrats, there is a beltway canard about them being in "disarray" that they play on whenever one of the 20,000 or so women who are seeking office as Democrats wins an election.
Look to see a lot more such speculation as a lot more of them are going to win elections.

I am concerned about what Justice Kennedy's resignation means.

I was worried back when Justice O'Connor resigned and Kennedy became the swing vote.

Chief Justice Roberts will likely be the swing vote now.

I'm certain Justice Roy Moore will make us all proud, though (I'm kidding - Moore is 30 years older than the eventual nominee will be...).

McConnell: ‘You’ll regret this’

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) warned Democrats Thursday that they’d regret using the “nuclear option.”

“You’ll regret this, and you may regret this a lot sooner than you think,” McConnell said on the Senate floor.

Empirical evidence Drumpfuck's dumbfuck voters can't live with voting for this walking orange shitstain.

On average, there are 276 gun homicides a week in America. There are 439 gun suicides. All told, there are, on average, nearly 1,200 incidents involving gun violence, every week, in America.

This landscape of gun violence — suicides, homicides, mass shootings, accidents — is not evenly distributed. Instead, it plays out over geographic and political dividing lines — and these may help explain why individual Americans see the issue so differently.

The most striking difference is also arguably the weirdest. In the nation’s cities, which are overwhelmingly Democratic (blue dots in even the reddest states), people are more likely to be murdered with a gun than they are to shoot themselves. In red America, mostly rural and mostly Republican, people are more likely to shoot themselves to death than they are to be murdered with a gun.

This is nonsense in the case of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

I’m not saying race had nothing to do with her win. She was a Latina running in a district with a plurality of Latin voters, some of whom are likely to have voted based on ethnicity. This happens everywhere with every group to some degree, unfortunately.

But she is not some kind of race warrior who is solely focused on serving only her tribe. The main difference between her and the guy she’s replacing is not race but economic ideology — he’s a centrist, while she seems to be farther left . She identifies as a socialist, for whatever that’s worth. (A lot of people, like Bernie Sanders, who throw this term around don’t believe in anything close to actual socialism.)

“I'm betting nutjobs persuaded Kennedy to step down now. What I'd like to know if it was threats to his family or monetary or just what because you know there is skullduggery behind this.”

I don’t really think Kennedy’s retirement requires skullduggery to explain. It’s enough to know that he is a) old and b) a Republican.

The latter is rather important. Kennedy has a long history of wilfull blindness about the awfulness of his party. You’d have to be in major denial if you’re halfway intelligent and not totally evil, and yet you still keep voting GOP.

Kennedy wrote the majority opinion in Citizens United, arguing money=speech and that money has no corrupting effec on the politicians who receive it. Which is desperately naive. He also sided with the majority in Shelby v Holder, gutting the Voting Rights Act, under the rationale that the South isn’t racist anymore so nobody needs to keep an eye on Southerners’ election cheating anymore. Again, desperately naive.

So if you asked him why he felt comfortable retiring with the Very Stable Genius running the White House, snatching kids at the border and enacting Muslim bans, Kennedy’s answer would probably be some version of: “Trump’s not THAT bad ...” Guys like him refuse to see disaster until it arrives on their doorsteps.

So Oklahoma legalized medical marijuana, and from reading the law, you'd think they don't know much about weed: Eight ounces is OK or three ounces in your possession... A half a pound? Really? That's a lot of weed, if you ask me, but maybe they don't have the same kind of weed I'm used to.
Twelve plants sounds like a lot, but the way it's grown these days, that could only amount to a few ounces, if that.
What I remember about Oklahoma and weed is the visits I made to family there in the seventies, and how my older brother got hit up for weed by all of my cousins and their friends because we lived in California. And that was before everyone everywhere associated Humboldt County, where we did actually live, with the cultivation of cannabis.
My brother, of course, didn't have anything for them, knowing how bad of an idea it was to carry weed in a '63 Impala with California plates across Texas in the early seventies...
