James D.

jimmyk, the progs have way more illegitimate voters than our side does, so it'd be a losing proposition to legalize it in red states.

But, no, the GOP squishes aren't, and won't, do anything about it.

MissMarple2

Old Lurker,

I agree that is why they hate the wall. They also hate Trump because he is inspiring nationalism in a lot of countries.

lyle

Oh, and you can throw the state of Washington in there with same I-5 provision.

Extraneus

I think there's an open seat in NC because the (R) winner was accused of ballot harvesting.

The Gateway Pundit has a great rundown on the courtroom exchanges.

The bottom line, that sealed case that bounced around over the last few weeks appears to be involved with Mueller wanted to claim that Concord Management, a foreign company, should be required to make submissions to the FEC. By not making submissions, it is claimed that Concord has violated 18USC 371, something that the DOJ has never tried before. Dublier goes on to claim that Mueller is saying that anybody who goes on the internet under the guise of an synonym could be prosecuted later for conspiracy.

"anybody who goes on the internet under the guise of an synonym could be prosecuted later for conspiracy."

So let's start a list of all those fake names the Obama people used to regulate without using their own names?

Captain Hate

Btw, DrJ, I'd like to thank you again for your input a month ago or so when I got portable stereo speakers. Your comments about the Bluetooth ones were quite accurate regarding the compressed nature of the sound (and I particularly noticed that on a solo piano recording compared to a piano-bass-drums trio in which the sound was acceptable) but the WiFi ones needed to be plugged into an outlet which, for me, reduced the portability requirement.

So my dumber than Solomon solution was to buy the Bluetooth speakers *and* a connector jack so I play Spotify from either my phone or iPad through my receiver or Accoustic Wave. Win/Win.

Fair enough, Ig.

James D, Henry: As I understand ballot harvesting, it’s not letting illegals vote, it’s having someone collect the ballots and decide which ones to turn in. Even red states have blue districts, so if CA can eliminate it’s red districts, why shouldn’t red states eliminate blue seats?

Neo

Pelosi manages to win Speaker when nearly two dozen Democrats withhold their vote.
Final 220-192 (need 216 to win)

henry

jimmyk, your mistake is assuming "red" votes are out there to be harvested. That is not clear. In WI turnout is higher in "red" areas than "blue" areas. Thus the leftist push for longer early voting (the other "harvesting" method).

Well the Coast Range is a pretty decent barrier to anything under a couple of thousand feet but some of our other CA friends might not be so fortunate, especially with the Sacramento Delta being a more or less sea level safety valve through the coast range that would drown most of the Central Valley.

Pelosi on open mic, after swearing in the members: "Now what? Now what happens?"

Captain Hate

From Miss Marple's 2:37:

From the March, 21, 2012 edition of the New York Times, “Mr. Fehrnstrom on Wednesday reached for a word to describe how Mr. Romney might pivot to the general election, the one that came tumbling from his mouth was ‘Etch A Sketch,’ the children’s drawing toy in which nothing is ever permanent,” reported the newspaper. “’Everything changes,’ Mr. Fehrnstrom, 50, said on CNN, with a slight smirk that suggested he believed he was about to use a clever line. ‘It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.’”

President Trump’s personal mistakes have been the subject of non-stop public investigation, commentary and debate every single day, every hour, every minute, for years. We know the man, we know what he’s done, and most of all, we know who he has become.

Donald Trump, and his entire family, left comfortable lives, where their days were not filled with death threats, invective, lies, anthrax hoax letters, harassment on airplanes, in restaurants, mocking by the liberal media, accusations of being traitors, Nazis, and targeted by a weaponized federal government with the intention of nullifying his electoral success.

Yes, he became president, and family members have joined him, in working to deliver promises made on a campaign trail to bring back jobs, the economy, border security, the rule of law, and national security to this nation. In other words, he promised to bring back the future for American families.

President Trump’s promises and conversations with the American people during the campaign and every day since aren’t written on an Etch A Sketch, and every day he pays the price for not being like Mitt Romney.

jimmyk

Not to beat a dead horse, but I thought “harvesting” was a euphemism for “losing” the other side’s ballots.

Old Lurker

Ha MM. "Who am I? Why am I here?"

MissMarple2

Old Lurker,

Do not think that Trump isn't aware of her confusion. This could be interesting.

Old Lurker

Jimmy, here on this one thread we have two of the Left's favorite deviant activities: Grooming and Harvesting.

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

I liked that article by Tammy Bruce. I didn't know that about Ric Grenell. Shameful!

henry

jimmyk, "lose the other side's ballots"? I suppose lots of games can be played. Is the ballot harvester SJW an officer of the state that can check ID? Or felon status, age, residence, of God forbid -- citizenship? (Oh right, CA doesn't bother with such things).

Old Lurker

I don't...Trump was all over getting her elected for a reason.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told reporters on Wednesday,
"We want to make sure the border's secure, but more importantly, we want to make sure this government is opened."

If he keeps this up it's not going to be rabid Leftists taking potshots at the Repub Softball Team.

So I happened to find myself looking at Liz Mair's twitter feed (don't ask).

Dear God, the woman is even more horrible than I thought. How any Republican candidate (or, heck, any person with two brain cells to rub together) ever hired her is beyond me.

And reading her in her own words, it's clear that anyone who DOES (or did) hire her is someone that should never be anywhere near elected office or any position of power or responsibility of any kind.

And, yes, sadly, that includes Scott Walker, who I used to respect, but not anymore.

Same here DrJ. Two engineering degrees but never worked in "design" only on the construction, project management, and executive management side of it. In Maryland, Virginia, and several other states, you have to also register your firm as a professional engineer. The guy I replaced in our Maryland office, took the test for our corporate license but since he unexpectly died, and I took his place, I had to take the transfer by taking the damn exam. The same for an individual PE, but I was only a marker, for the corporate license, and could not call myself a PE. How weird was that?

CH, you're welcome! I'm glad it worked out for you.

FWIW, I'm trying to wire my old car for a hands-free cell phone (it had a built-in analog cell phone!) and most people are telling me to use Bluetooth. Many friends use this approach, and uniformly it has been terrible.

JiB, state licensing regulations are a PITA. I figured I'd never be involved with signing of on state designs, so I did not pursue a PE. I'd never be able to pass the test now, as a lot of the things I knew as an undergrad -- and which are on the PE exam -- long ago have faded.

I've not ever needed the license.

The company just posted that Security Warning about China as a heads-up for us, but I doubt it'll have an effect on flight crews:

Exercise increased caution in China due to the arbitrary enforcement of local laws and special restrictions on dual U.S.-Chinese nationals.

Chinese authorities have the broad ability to prohibit travelers from leaving China...

U.S. citizens visiting or residing in China have been arbitrarily interrogated or detained for reasons related to “state security.” Security personnel have detained and/or deported U.S. citizens for sending private electronic messages critical of the Chinese government.

Me personally, I've always loved and admired China. It's a wonderful country with a fabulously decent government that really cares about its people. Their President is terrific and their Civil Rights freedoms are to die for!

BTW, The company this morning also just opened up slots for 250 New Captains to fill vacancies, so just passing on again to any of you who have young adults interested in fun jobs, the field is wide open and many if not all the major carriers are scrambling for new qualified pilots.

(One scholar I spoke with in March who has researched the term Ultima Thule in another context agreed that the Nazi connotation is not as well-known as other uses of the words.)

Ya' think?

"I've said it a number of times, I think New Horizons is an example — one of the best examples in our time — of raw exploration, and the term Ultima Thule, which is very old, many centuries old, possibly over a thousand years old, is a wonderful meme for exploration," Stern said. "That's why we chose it. I would say that just because some bad guys once liked that term, we're not going to let them hijack it." The statement was greeted by applause from news conference attendees.

Can't wait till the Press demands people no longer use the term "Volkswagen" or "AutoBahn" because guess who used to use these terms? Go ahead, guess.

I haven't seen you folks giving the rundown on the Ultima Thule mention the possible composition of it. Are we talking nickel, iron, silicone..? I think daddy mentioned speculation about the presence of methane or nitrogen ice. If that's on the surface the pressure required to thaw and refreeze and adhere the two pieces would be significantly less. But then the question is how did liquid or gaseous nitrogen or methane coalesce around them?

There's a John Ringo series called Troy Rising that tackles some of the techniques people might use to colonize the inner Solar System but it relies on an infusion of alien technology.

The gist is, the protagonist makes mirrors out of small nickel asteroids and uses the sun to make what amounts to Death Stars out of large nickel asteroids.
