I’m going to guess that the WH has been busily trying to gather bereaved families of people killed by undocumented people for the SOTU gallery and are now thinking, “well hell, should they come or not….”

16 January 2003, 15:39:00 UTC, T minus Zero: Space Shuttle Columbia (STS-107) lifted off from Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Columbia (OV-102) was America’s first space shuttle. This would be her final flight.

The most horrible thing about Columbia was that Mission Control knew the flight was doomed from the beginning and there was no way to abort and return the astronauts.

I expect one of two equally childish responses from the WH to Nancy’s letter.

The first is the passive-aggressive “Well, we didn’t want to attend anyway!,” which they may try to phrase in some manner they think shows him to be the “bigger man,” but really just comes off as snotty response to being told he’s not welcome.

The second is to declare that it doesn’t matter what Nancy says now, she invited him and he’s gonna show up even if it means that only Republicans will attend. Or that, since she won’t allow him to give the SOTU before a joint session, he’ll just hold a rally on that day instead so he can tell the American people just how awesome his presidency is for them.

They’ll (the GOP, that is) crack in a couple more weeks. I’m already detecting a certain degree of panic on their part.

Gee, it’s almost time again for the CPAC confab of right wing lunatics? So soon?

People they’re already touting: John Batchelor, Catherine Glenn Foster, President and CEO of Americans United for Life (a radical anti-abortion group), Lisa Daftari (who?!), Larry O’Connor (who?), Lawrence Jones, Mattie Duppler. Maybe Charlie Kirk too?

An intelligent president might well response to Nancy’s letter by agreeing with it in principle if not personally, saying that time and resources that would be spent on a SOTUA would better go to furthering negotiations to get the gov’t reopened.

But Trump doesn’t give a flying fuck if the gov’t reopens and does care totally about any chance to stroke his own ego, so he’ll find some way to spin himself as the victim.

Except it’s not being forced. Is baking for a couple for a couple who isn’t Christian acknowledging that you agree with the tenets of said religion? My problem tho is the double standards because a gay baker refusing to serve Christians would be the outrage de year for FNC and how a lot of these so called Christian bakers or florists are hypocrites.

If you wa t to use your religion as a license to discriminate, you need consistency. I don’t see divorcees or even interfaith couples being denied services. That to me suggests it’s not scripture, it’s homophobic bs.

There is the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony and there is the legal status of marriage. They used to be more or less identical. Nobody can force you to bestow the Sacrament onto people you disagree with, but you have to recognize their legal status.

The Brexiteers made a lot of bullshit promises about how the EU as a whole would give the UK a sweet deal to leave because they wouldn’t want to piss off such a “vital” trade partner.

Amazing how, just like with Trump and his trade war, the UK is now finding out in the global era that no one country is so vital that cutting it off is impossible.

Exactly. No one forced Kim Davis that she had to agree with same sex marriage’s legality or its morality but as a public servant, she had to acknowledge applicants. Imagine an animal rights activist clerk refusing hunting licenses.

The problem with this shit though is it opens a nasty floodgate of conservative Christians in any field thinking they’re free to deny gay people. That’s not the country I want to live in. As I said, if the tables were turned, the religious right would lose their shit. This along with the rise of Transphobia is the right’s response ot having lost the same sex marriage debate just like the rise of anti-busing and creating private Christian academy was a response to integration.

Cake is a secular good. It’s got nothing to do with the marriage itself.

According to some religion(s), the marriage must be consummated upon the cake made for the occasion, in the manner the newly married couple imagine it would be done by the two beings depicted in the icon adorning the cake (which icon must be removed in advance of said consummation and archived under the pillow of the Ring Bearer), were they not cast in plastic.

That’s what I’ve heard.

My understanding is that the only reason the Tories will vote to defeat the motion is because the likely result of a snap election is a Labour minority gov’t with PM Corbyn.

In the past, such a result would have only been possible with the understanding that the PM would step down as such a scenario could generally only come about due to an utter fuck-up on their part.

In the past, such a result would have only been possible with the understanding that the PM would step down as such a scenario could generally only come about due to an utter fuck-up on their part.

But May’s time in the seat shows that, much like Trump, her ego is so huge that it exerts gravitational force.

Another factor may be that no other Tory wants to preside over this shitshow.

I like to eat meat too but I’m not some delicate meat bro who thinks eating veggies makes you less of a man. People who think that way are fucking stupid.

My husband’s been vegetarian since his twenties, and he’s gone full blown vegan in recent years for health reasons. So, although I’m not vegetarian myself, I eat a lot of vegan food with him. Ditto with my veggie/vegan friends, of which I have a fair amount. The options for vegan food in Glasgow are really good at the moment. Not just dedicated vegan places, like The Flying Duck or Mono, but better vegan options at other places. I hear you can even get a vegan sausage roll at Greggs these days! And it’s really good, tasty, satisfying, quality food- light years ahead of the old stereotypes about nut cutlets.

So, when I hear all this guff about not eating meat feminising men, I think:
a) You’ve obviously never perused the burger menu in the Flying Duck.
b) Women can and do eat meat.
c) Why am I even entertaining this obviously made up vision of what it means to be a man? If you really want to embody this mythical caveman-cum-huter-gatherer cliche, what the fuck are you doing on Twitter?

There was an issue in the 30’s about veterans getting paid:
stripes.com

The troops massed on the Ellipse, right outside the White House: More than two hundred soldiers on horseback, plus men on foot and five tanks.

On July 28, 1932, at the command of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, they marched down Pennsylvania Avenue toward the Capitol to launch an attack on World War I veterans.

It was the height of the Great Depression. Nearly 20,000 unemployed veterans had converged on Washington to demand bonus payments from Congress and President Herbert Hoover. Led by Walter W. Waters, a former sergeant from Oregon, they called themselves the Bonus Army or Bonus Expeditionary Forces, a nod to World War I’s American Expeditionary Forces.

Many saw the Bonus Army as heroes.

“They made themselves into a symbol of the Depression - the symbol of the forgotten man,” said historian Lucy Barber, deputy executive director at the National Archives. “Their status as veterans and patriots gave them a much greater claim on the country. With the image of all the other people lining up at the soup kitchens - in some ways, they were considered the most deserving of those people.”

I can’t see what else it will be, given there’s no time to do anything and absolutely no reason on the EU’s part to change anything. May’s only strategy is to grind away until the opposition just gets tired of her shit and gives in, but there’s no reason why that would work now. So it’s Plan B which is Plan A but with floor mats and undercoating.

At least Corbyn is pushing for her to rule out no-deal Brexit, so that’s something. That has support on both sides of the aisle. If that happens, it’s May’s Brexit lite or Referendum II: The Referendumbing.

I just read this on Wonkette and plan to use the following script when I call my senators (Cruz and Cornyn) later today:

Are you currently receiving a paycheck? Since i have a federal tax obligation that pays your wages, I don’t consider it to be a personal question.

Has the senator issued any statements about whether FDA food inspections are, in fact, essential, and that their elimination is a bad thing? No?

Has the senator issued any statements about whether FAA airplane inspections are, in fact, essential, and that their elimination is a bad thing? No?

Has the senator issued any statements about whether the FAA program ensuring that airplanes land on the correct runway (and not a taxiway) is, in fact, essential, and that its elimination is a bad thing? No?

I’m glad you will be able to enjoy your paycheck without concern for your family’s well being. But I am very concerned about furloughed workers being prohibited from working, and I’m also very concerned about others who are compelled to work without pay. That’s why I am urging the senator to vote to re-open the government as soon as possible.

The back story of the assault on the Bonus March is a false report MacArthur had received from Colonel Conrad Lanza, who was stationed in New York and who was G-2 (staff intelligence) for the Northeastern military district.

An Army intelligence report said that the BEF intended to occupy the Capitol permanently and instigate fighting which would be a signal for Communist uprisings in all major cities. At least part of the Marine Corps garrison in Washington would side with the revolutionaries; hence Marine units eight blocks from the Capitol were never called upon (the report of July 5, 1932 by Conrad H. Lanza in upstate New York was not declassified until 1991).

Lanza (1878-1963) was a well known military author. Where he got this story of a communist uprising is anybody’s guess, but Mac bought it lock, stock and barrel.

And it strikes me that Jeff Bezos, in 25 years, has amassed a fortune twice as large as the what the royal family of the world’s 6th biggest economy needed 10 times as long to put together. (5th biggest, if we only count country’s and remove California from the rankings).

Fake Washington Post Newspapers Distributed in D.C.
hollywoodreporter.com

The newspaper said it was aware someone had produced forged newspapers with fake headlines and stories inside. A fake website was also apparently created.

The newspaper said it was looking into who created the fake papers. “There are fake print editions of The Washington Post being distributed around downtown D.C., and we are aware of a website attempting to mimic The Post’s. They are not Post products, and we are looking into this,” The Post’s verified public relations account stated.

At this time, it’s unclear who created the forgery. However, in a story, the Post noted that liberal activist organization Code Pink published a video on Facebook in which copies of the fake paper were handed out. “This just in! Handing out the Washington Post paper on Trump leaving the presidency,” the video was captioned.

Maybe they should save it. I can still see this ending with Trump or McConnell or both fleeing the country.

Exactly what I’ve always thought would be the best way out of this mess: which would not have become such a mess if we had a real President in the WH instead of a narcissistic TV conman.

And a power-mad Senate Majority Leader.

I’m predicting that Donny’s eventual cave will be to say if he can get just a bit more than the $1.6B the DNC is offering, then he’ll sign the bill just so he can tell his base that he got more for border security than he would have got if he hadn’t held out.

From 4 weeks ago, this is one of the GOP hacks Rage Furby is hanging out with….

As protests continue in Hungary, Andy Harris doubles down on his support for Viktor Orban

But even people who see the need to go to extremes for ideological balance might pause, or even shudder, at Harris’ support of Viktor Orban, the prime minister of Hungary and kindred spirit of Vladimir Putin. Whatever your party affiliation, if you’re an American who believes that the United States stands for freedom — and I think that’s still most of us, right? — you should be appalled at Harris’ adoration of an authoritarian ruler who appears to be one shoeshine away from full dictator status.

When I was a teenager back in the 1970s, I read several political potboilers by Allen Drury. One of them was how a weak president basically became a thrall of the Soviets, and the book ended with a mashed-up Russian/American flag flying over the Capitol. I’ve thought about that book a lot in the last couple of years, but I can say that Drury had it hella wrong. He thought the destruction was going to come from the “left” (such as it existed in the mid 70s). And, as we know, that’s not the case. But still, hard to shake that out of my head. (The book was “Come Nineveh, Come Tyre” and is only available in Kindle format.)
