Say what?!

 


When I check out I want to be have my ashes spread over the Caribbean Sea off the coast of Falmouth, Jamaica.  I want a very small gathering, and very short goodbyes. 

Something about being buried in the ground just doesn't sit right with me. What if, for instance, there is some kind of life after death experience, and I wake up in a coffin six feet under? I have serious claustrophobia issues, and the thought of...lord I can't even think about it. 

So why I am I talking about how one chooses to be sent off after they say farewell to this life? Well, as you all might have heard by now, tfg's ex recently met an unfortunate end when she fell down a flight of stairs and said goodbye to this life. It was a weird way for her to go out, and needless to say some folks still have some questions. But the place her ex husband chose to bury her... Lord have mercy!    

Read what Matt Prigge had to say about the whole thing: 

"Donald Trump has a lot going on right now, but he’s somehow found the time to draw attention to one part of his empire in particular: his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. The former president has drawn fire from families of 9/11 victims for hosting a (sparsely attended) Saudi golf tournament at his NYC-adjacent course. But there’s more: When he buried his late ex-wife Ivana near the course’s first hole, he may have done so for tax break purposes.2022

As caught by The Daily Mail, Dartmouth sociology professor Brooke Harrington suspected something was up when Trump buried his first wife on one of his golf courses. So she did some snooping, and she discovered that in Jersey, there is no minimum number of bodies required for a plot of land to be designated a cemetery…and therefore be exempt from all taxes, rates, and assessments.

What’s more, tax documents reveal that the Trump Family Trust recently sought to designate a property only 20 miles from the golf club, in Hackettstown, to become a non-profit cemetery company.

So, did self-professed rich guy really use his late ex-wife’s death to save some money? He of course hasn’t addressed the matter. But as per Insider, he’s tried to turn his golf club into a makeshift cemetery before:"

No words. I mean this is beyond tacky even for the tfg. I have no feelings about Ivana one way or the other, but I know she deserved more than this. I mean, who wants to be buried on the first tee of a golf course? Hell Tiger Woods won't want to be buried on a damn golf course, and he made a billion dollars off the sport. 

I will never play Bedminster, but for those of you who do, please say a little prayer for tfg's ex buried below your tee box before you launch one down the fairway.

After months of internal debate, the Biden administration has offered to exchange Viktor Bout, a convicted Russian arms trafficker serving a 25-year US prison sentence, as part of a potential deal to secure the release of two Americans held by Russia, BLACK LESBIAN DRUG TRAFFICKER Brittney Griner and CANDIAN MAN ASS MUNCHING SPY Paul Whelan, according to people briefed on the matter - The "other American" Biden isn't trying to get released imprisoned in Russia has a name, too. - He was always just Mr. Fogel to the students he entranced with lectures about the Cold War.

Yes, it's always simple with He Who Does Not Laugh, it's about money which feeds his always-unfulfilled ego. He didn't want to declare the 2020 election over because he was still getting donations. He'll try to run again because money. He'll stiff his lawyers because money. And we need to keep in mind that if he'd just invested his inheritance he'd be richer than he is now, so stupid, too. Can we get rid of this guy without having to elect President De Santis? God help us.

Colour me surprised drumpf didn't off Ivana Jr and bury her ass on the first tee. She'll always be his favorite grope toy and has since she was one.

Then he'd beg people to help defray the millions in costs to bury her properly. And then he would just pocket the coin. It could've happened.

Just total hallucinatory garbage from the wingnut fever swamp. There's no evidence Paul Whelan is gay. And there's no reason to believe that the government won't negotiate for Fogel, just because he's not included in the present round of hostage exchange negotiations, much less that they don't want him back because he's NOT gay.

Wingnuts have gay on the brain, at the moment.

He’s not been officially designated as wrongfully detained by the U.S. and a trade for Fogel has not been mentioned so far, so he’s probably not included in the initial deal being negotiated. But who knows? The general public aren’t party to the discussions going on behind the scenes. And even if he isn’t in the initial deal, that wouldn’t preclude him being part of a subsequent deal.

Fogel was caught with a lot more drugs than Griner was even accused of carrying, and there’s really no doubt that he did it, although his sentence seems big compared to the offense. This could be part of why negotiation for his release has not been mentioned along with Griner and Whelan.

He may well have been taking weed for pain relief, but unfortunately, that doesn’t matter. Medical marijuana is not a thing in Russia. To them, he’s just a criminal. They’ve basically charged him as a drug dealer, not a user, as well.

It looks like the Dems finally got Manchin's vote by buying him off with a natural gas pipeline. For at least a year, he's been dragging his feet on literally everything, but I figured he could be bribed. He is not what you'd call a "conviction politician"; he's not particularly principled. God only knows why the Dems farted around this long before finally breaking down and giving him what he wanted.

It was probably some dumb purity thing. Yeah, it's not good for the environment to build more fossil fuel infrastructure, but that doesn't justify allowing the blockage of all the rest of Biden's climate agenda just to stop one fucking gas pipeline. You've got to think of the greater good, and compromise sometimes.

It's just frustrating as hell.

Yeah, but Republicans are not completely immune from the same problem of refusing to compromise at all, and therefore ending up with nothing. Attempting to please their most extreme voters does sometimes result in Republicans failing to pass laws or losing what would otherwise have been winnable elections.

Remember just five years ago? A Democrat won a Senate seat in Alabama, amazingly enough, because Republican primary voters insisted on nominating as their candidate the fundamentalist whackjob (and ex-judge!) Roy Moore. Ol’ Roy didn’t have much of a chance after the news broke that he’d banned from the local mall for trying to pick up junior high school chicks there.

That was good for the Democrats, but bad for the reputation of Alabama, which everyone already thinks of as the pervy redneck sister-humper state.

It looks like the same dynamic is going to play out in some of the political races this fall, as the Democrats’ losses will be partially blunted by the Republicans having nominated insane fruitcake candidates, like Doug “Stop the Steal” Mastriano for governor in Pennsylvania or Talibangelical hillbilly Darren Bailey in Illinois.

Maybe they could have had a shot at winning those races, but nit now. They’ve clearly decided to shoot themselves in the dick instead.

I'm not that optimistic.

My point was that, in a fair democratic fight, Republicans actually screw up a lot. When Republicans put some ridiculous far-right bozo into a statewide election, they usually lose.

You say "insane people are winning primaries and have a chance to win." But usually, the insane people who won a primary only have a chance to win if Republicans have already put a thumb on the scale. Such as by gerrymandering districts so only a Republican CAN win. That is a big part of the story of how our national politics got so nuts. So many congressional districts are rigged for a single party, now, and the primary effectively is the whole election, as the general election is a foregone conclusion as to which party will win.

Republicans have been ruthlessly efficient about abusing their power, whenever they have been democratically elected, to undermine democracy to keep themselves in power. (Gerrymandering after the 2010 election is just one of numerous examples). The game is more and more rigged with each passing year, and the more rigged it is in Republicans favor, the more they whine and pretend the Democrats are the ones doing it! A la Trump and his "Stop the Steal" bullshit.

I am not optimistic because Democrats did not cotton on to this organized strategy fast enough and have never ruthless enough in fighting back.

The problem is not that there is some growing majority of wingnuts. The opposite is true -- wingnuts are a shrinking minority. But that won't matter if they've dismantled democracy so you can't vote them out anymore, and that does appear to be their plan.

I see more and more mainstream Republicans growing more comfortable with wingnuts because white people vote Republican regardless. For example, in Illinois there is no way even 10 years ago Bailey would have won a statewide primary. Once again, not as optimistic as you.

“I see more and more mainstream Republicans growing more comfortable with wingnuts because white people vote Republican regardless”

That’s a fairly inaccurate statement: “White people vote Republican.” While it’s true that a majority of whites vote Republican, their majority is not by that big a margin.

It’s not like 90% vote Republican / 10% vote Democrat. It’s more like 60% Republican / 40 % Democrat.

And whites collectively are a shrinking share of the population.

All of which adds up to … Republicans are already a shrinking minority of the population. They cannot hope to win in the long term unless they either a) moderate their ideological positions (which you have correctly noted they have given no indication of doing; with every election, they grow more insane), or b) they cheat.

So that is what is happening. They have settled on a course of cheating their way into power, and cheating to stay there. The Jan. 6th violence was a disturbing indication of that intent.

Some small morsels of good news:

Mark McCloskey, the attorney who ran for U.S. Senate in Missouri on a platform of “I need muh gun to point at scary BLM protesters,” has lost his primary. He got only 3% of the vote.

Rapey wife-beater Eric Greitens lost as well, although he got 19% (stay classy, Republicans).

Unfortunately, the bad news is that Missouri’s state attorney general Eric Schmitt won, and he is still a hard-right anti-gay, COVID-denying, Trump-fellating dirtbag.

“It’s more like 60% Republican / 40 % Democrat.”

I may have to challenge those numbers. White males vote Republican by a wide margin with white women not far behind. And as we know with the Electoral College and the makeup of the senate the scale is tipped towards minority rule even if whites become the minority sometime in the future. We also have to look at the fact that Republicans are doing better with POC so any loss can possibly be made up. Short story, the GOP will control smaller population states and will filibuster any attempts at governing beyond judges.

"I may have to challenge those numbers. White males vote Republican by a wide margin with white women not far behind."

You may think that ... but you're wrong.

Take the last presidential race, for example. The numbers are here: Behind Biden’s 2020 Victory

In 2020, Trump got 57% of white males to Biden's 40% of white males. That's a majority for Trump, but it's not like he blew the doors off Biden. Lots of white males voted against him.

In 2020, Trump got 53% of white females to Biden's 46%. That's barely a majority at all!

Meanwhile, Trump either lost or got completely destroyed among all non-white groups.

This trend pretty much holds for voting on Democrats and Republicans across the board. Could Republicans change this, to actually win future elections? Sure. They could moderate their positions to pick up more non-white votes, for example. But it's very clear from their recent behavior that they currently have absolutely no intention of doing this. They're gonna be as racist as they wanna be. They're gonna fly their Confederate flags proudly and demand grade school kids learn "both sides" of the history of slavery and the Holocaust. They're gonna double down on deporting brown kids who've been here since the age of two. Et cetera.

So, it's clear that they aren't banking on changing so they can attract more voters to their current coalition, which is inexorably shrinking.

This means they are guaranteed to lose most future elections -- unless they cheat. They obviously plan on cheating BIGLY.

That is a HUGE difference! Do the math. And in red states that percentage was over 80%. I mean if we go to simple majority voting and winner takes all that might mean something but it doesn't. Throw in gerrymandering and voter suppression and there is NOTHING to be optimistic about. There is NO reason any sane individual would vote for trump but a majority of white males and white females did. If you vote for TFG you'll vote for anyone. That means any voters trump lost will be regained by Ron De Satan because he is viewed as more moderate. This country is going to hell in a hand basket. There is no reason MTG or Bobo should be in congress but there they are and they will probably be re-elected. Sorry but we're kind fucked.

That's kind of my point. If we had a proper democratic system, there wouldn't be that much to worry about. But we don't. There are already baked-in, undemocratic advantages in the Constitution for wingnuts: a federal Senate that does not feature proportional voting, an Electoral College. Both of those boost the votes of citizens of small states, which are overwhelmingly where wingnuts live.

And then, on top of that, wingnuts have worked hard in the last few decades to undermine democracy further, through unleashing endless flows of campaign donations, creating lie-filled wingnut media outlets, drawing gerrymandered districts, engaging in vote suppression. The dirty tricks go on and on.

I am not at all optimistic about the future of this country. But not because there are growing majorities of crazed wingnuts. There aren't. That's not the problem. The problem is that, even though the crazed wingnuts are shrinking in number, they are cheating harder and harder, and they are succeeding at it.

If that trend isn't arrested, at some point, voting won't matter anymore. We'll be a fascist dictatorship that still holds sham elections to pretend we're a democracy. "Hey, Dear Leader got 98% of the vote! Again! The people must surely love him."

From Insider via Yahoo News:
"Just months after the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor, two Louisville police detectives met in a garage and agreed to mislead investigators examining the botched raid that resulted in her death, the Justice Department alleged Thursday.

At a press conference, Attorney General Merrick Garland said the Justice Department charged four current and former Louisville police officers in connection with Taylor's death. Garland said the charges include allegations that Louisville police falsified an affidavit used to obtain a search warrant for Taylor's home, in violation of civil rights laws.
Garland said "those violations resulted in Ms. Taylor's death."

"Breonna Taylor should be alive today," he said.

In court filings, prosecutors alleged that two officers — former detective Joshua Jaynes and Detective Kelly Goodlett — later took steps to cover up their falsification of the affidavit as investigators scrutinized the shooting.

In May 2020, the two met in the garage and agreed to tell a "false story," Garland said.

Mike,

I always tend to think of Ms. Kraus as a gospel singer, because I always sing or accompany something that she did in church. Everything that she does always seems to have a little something extra. The first one was Down to the River to Pray from the celebrated film Brother, Where Art Thou? People loved to sing that song. We sang it during communion. She also had a version of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah with better lyrics for church services. She was into publishing. I loved her stuff. She really is a bluegrass player. She was a little girl playing the fiddle. She even joined the Grand Ole Opry.

You're right. She is a cutie. I kinda guessed when I saw her middle name was Maria that she had some German descent.

Did anybody else trip out on the organ music at George Floyd's Memorial Service? To me it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear the real deal gospel Hammond organ. I guess I could listen to the service again in its entirety to try to learn something. A lot of big churches have virtual services and libraries of past services on video. Maybe the Landmark Church might be a good place to start.

Your conclusion is incorrect. We were in the midst of a pandemic so most people who could voted by mail.(I am one of them. I never voted by mail until November 2020.) It's really very simple: mail-in ballots take much longer to count than direct computer voting. Of course there was a late surge for Biden because most Democrats voted by mail.
Biden won the election fair and square. After over 50 claims of fraud were thrown out of court due to lack of evidence and numerous recounts - no fraud was found.
Ask yourself,if the election had serious, widespread fraud, why didn't Trump and his supporters contest any of the elections in states where Trump won?

Anonymous said...

“Of course there was a late surge for Biden because most Democrats voted by mail.”

More to the point, lots of Republicans didn’t vote by mail, because Trump told them not to.

In advance of the election, Trump was already sowing the seeds of “election fraud” excuses for him losing, because he knew he was probably going to lose.

Also, Trump had told his followers that they were big sissy unpatriotic traitors if they didn’t physically show up in person to the polls, because this COVID thing was really no big deal, just the flu anyway.

Naturally, after the election, the mail-in vote count skewed heavily Democratic, and Trump pretended this meant something sinister, rather than that he’d told his followers specifically not to vote by mail and they’d moronically complied.

“Chinese warships take up positions around Taiwan after U.S. House Drunkard Nancy Pelosi's visit”

Ah, I see we’ve moved straight from “China is the source of all evil” to “hey, be nice to poor China, don’t provoke them,” now that Trump is no longer in office.

Could it be that Republicans don’t actually give a shit about the Chinese government violating people’s human rights, like potentially those of the citizens of Taiwan? And perhaps instead that China was just a convenient scapegoat to falsely blame for U.S. workers’ wage stagnation, which was actually caused by years of right-wing Republican policies?

Nah, couldn’t possibly be.

In case anyone was wondering exactly how shitty the people at CPAC are:

Apparently, they have a display at CPAC which consists of a fake jail cell containing a MAGA fool in an orange jumpsuit, crying about how he is being oppressed by the evil libs. His story of woe is about how he was having a totally normal day on January 6, 2021, just quietly minding his own business while rioting at the Capitol, when these big federal meanies arrested him! Can you imagine that? What are we, now, the Soviet Union, where a decent working-class man can’t overthrow the government in peace?

Everyone please feel bad for this poor, unfortunate soul.

George Floyd did not OD.

You're an idiot who can't even make sense of evidence that's been put in front of you MULTIPLE times.  From https://famous-trials.com/george-floyd/2648-george-floyd-the-toxicology-report

Delta-9 Carboxy THC 42 ng/ml
Delta-9 THC 2.5 ng/ml
Methamphetamine 19 ng/ml
Fentanyl 11 ng/ml
Norfentanyl 5.6 ng/ml

The fentanyl in George Floyd's system was more than sufficient to kill him, and the cops certainly didn't give it to him.

He was murdered by pigs.

George Floyd had no injuries which would have stopped his breathing, and he was complaining that he couldn't breathe well BEFORE he was restrained on the ground.  Derek Chauvin is innocent; he was railroaded in a kangaroo court.

Experts agree Floyd did not die of overdose
While findings from Floyd's autopsy revealed 11 nanograms per milliliter of fentanyl in his blood, medical experts called as prosecution witnesses agreed the amount of fentanyl was not enough to be considered fatal.

Dr. Daniel Isenschmid, a forensic toxicologist at NMS Labs in Pennsylvania, testified and presented data showing the levels of methamphetamine found in Floyd's system were lower than the average amount found in 94% of DUI cases in 2020.

Cardiologist Jonathan Rich told the court: "I can state with a high degree of medical certainty that George Floyd did not die from a primary cardiac event, and he did not die from a drug overdose."

Rich added had it not been for Chauvin's restraint, he believes Floyd would have lived.

Dr. Lindsey Thomas, an expert witness who has reviewed documents and videos in the case, echoed Tobin's testimony and noted the slow nature of Floyd's death supports the conclusion that he did not die of a fentanyl overdose.

"Key co-intoxicant and potentially synergistic drugs present include heroin/morphine (20.6%), non-fentanyl opioids (34.5%), benzodiazepines (27.5%), cocaine (31.1%), and alcohol (32.9%).

"Postmortem levels of fentanyl confirmed in our sample range widely from 0.75 to 113.00 ng/mL, with a mean of 9.96."

George Floyd had well over the mean fatal dose of fentanyl in his system.  Ascribing his death to anything else was perjury.

Yes the organ music was beautiful. I'm not saying that George Floyd was a saint like Michael Jackson. But he did have a lovely service. He was a decent human being who led a life full of love. I thought he had a very pretty smile. He did nothing to deserve to die. It's too bad some idiot racist cop had to murder him. I wonder what made Chauvin think that he could get away with it. Oh yeah. He must have done it before. Chauvin got justice. But that is still as rare as shark hair.

Only a true believer could watch a man suffocate another man with his body weight full on the man's throat via his knee and then desperately attempt to attribute his death to drug toxicology. His lawyers tried that in a Hail Mary to get him off. The court scoffed. You guys are beyond idiots. Your minds are corrupted like a bad floppy disc. Hey assholes! How about that Alex Jones ruling?? Hell yeah. That expression on his face? Priceless.

So you didn't read the toxicology report very carefully did you? You read what some other right-wing scary pundit had to say to lead the sheeple like you. Let me help.

Here is the full autopsy and toxicology report. It is slightly above your reading level. But I can guide you to the fentanyl blood levels as well as a definition of the amount of fentanyl concentration in blood that makes a person lose consciousness. I mean, think about it. If George Floyd was dying from an overdose of opiates, how could he have been resisting arrest?

Right!

https://int.nyt.com/data/documenthelper/6992-george-floyd-full-autopsy/4c5bdf52fbbd775ce156/optimized/full.pdf

Here is the pertinent information about the fentanyl concentration in Floyd's blood. ng/ml refers to nanograms/milliliter. But then, you knew that.

Floyd definitely like to get high. They always say that guys in the big cities where you can't get any good weed are super into chemicals. Floyd's case bears this out. Dewd was trippin' or coming down off of several varieties of designer amphetamines, likely ecstasy would be my guess and even MDMA. Plenty of Delta-9 and not surprisingly, not a single drop of alcohol.

Here are the two tests of markers for Fentanyl. It's hard to tally, but it looks like his general level was at or slightly below 30ng/ml.

Acode52484B - Fentanyland Acetyl FentanylConfirmation, Blood - HospitalBlood

If you read the toxicology report, it states that the typical dose of fentanyl that causes a human being to lose consciousness is 50 ng/ml. So George was definitely into fentanyl. So was Prince. What's the big deal? The epidemic is out here on the West Coast where the cartels are putting fentanyl into other drugs and causing a raft of fatal overdoses.

There's a very interesting article on Raw Story regarding Indiana's new abortion restrictions that displays the ideas of some Republican politicians.

"IN GOPer Says The Quiet Part Out Loud: 'Not Her Body, Not Her Choice'"

This legislator hasn't said the quiet part out loud, though. He's saying the fetus' body is not her (the mother's) body, so aborting it is not her choice.

And that's not the "quiet part." That's always been the Republicans' overt, explicit position: a fetus is a legal person right from conception (or maybe even from fertilization), so its right to not be murdered supersedes the woman's right to not be forced to gestate and deliver it.

And that's what you have to counter if you want to win this battle. You can't just keep yelling "her body!" louder and louder. The other side will just counter with "... but baby murder" -- and they will win.

You have to make the argument that wingnuts' expansive idea of fetal personhood is a purely religious one with no grounding in biological evidence and, as such, cannot be written into our law, because we are not a theocracy. The First Amendment's Establishment Clause was intended to prevent religious zealots from inflicting their beliefs on everyone else by imposing religious laws.

Nah, most of them will just fly to a blue state, or Canada, to get the abortion done. That’s why so many of these Republicans are so comfortable passing these restrictions — they know they themselves can afford to buy their way out of them.

Assuming they, can’t afford to, of course, then that mixed-race kid will just get dumped into foster care the moment he is born.

Yeah, the “Get Hillary” law.

The demand back in 2016 that the FBI go after Hillary Clinton for her emails was pure election manipulation, because it was known at the very outset of the investigation that this was a petty offense that could never result in her going to prison. “Lock her up” was always a lie.

After Hillary (no surprise) faced no legal consequences, to appear morally consistent, Republicans then had to appear outraged, and they changed the law so that somebody who mishandled government documents would now go to prison.

Well, guess who that “somebody” might turn out to be. Lock him up!

What I said was that the voters who are poor enough to be unable to evade these abortion laws are mostly poc’s, whom Republicans don’t care about.

But the white folks who are ALSO that poor — they aren’t part of the Republican voting coalition. They either vote Democrat or, mostly, don’t vote. So Republicans don’t care about them, either.

There will be backlash to these abortion laws. Hopefully, there will be a lot of backlash, and it will cost the GOP dearly in the next election. But it won’t come from reliable Republican voters suddenly not being able to get abortions. There won’t be enough people in that category to matter. The people who vote Republican will mostly still be able to get an abortion when they need one.
