Everyone must be engrossed in the debate. It's quiet in here. Too quiet.....

Either that or everyone is already totaled from drunkblogging.

I've concluded exactly two things from the first hour of the #DemDebate:

1. I should have paid attention in my High School Spanish class.

2. @realDonaldTrump will be reelected President in 2020.

We all know what this debate needs right now.

Klobuchar, Beto, Booker, Castro, Gabbard, DeBlasio, Delaney, Inslee, Ryan all lost.

Lester won't be the candidate. Rachel won't be. NBC won't be.

Trump's 2 tweets about the debate:

1. Quality assessment: BORING.

2. Gives NBC hell for the technical screw-up.

3. Tweets a video of him demonstrating how a REAL President behaves, greeting the troops in Alaska with Air Force One in the background. You cannot imagine ONE person on that stage who could fill his shoes.

Russia collusion conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow is asking Delaney for his thoughts on whether Trump can be prosecuted for things after he leaves office. These last two questions from partisan moderators are making the candidates seem less radical.

Um, do we have to have another debate tomorrow?

D

Delaney caught off guard with greatest threat.
Half of the candidates say climate change biggest threat.

sbwaters,

According to what I am reading NBC is asking if Trump can be arrested when he leaves office, and at least a couple of these morons said yes.

How is this not stirring up sedition? It seems to me like NBC wants civil war.

de Blasio is Obama Jr.:

His father committed suicide while suffering from incurable lung cancer when Bill was 18. De Blasio graduated from Cambridge Rindge and Latin School in 1979, where he served in student government and was affectionately known to peers as "Senator Provolone". When he was 22, he adopted his mother's surname because his father was "largely absent," and he wanted to embrace his Italian heritage. He hyphenated it to Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm in 1983, and formally adopted the name Bill de Blasio in December 2001. He received a Bachelor of Arts from New York University, majoring in metropolitan studies, a program in urban studies, and received a Master of International Affairs from Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs.

In 1988, he traveled with the Quixote Center to Nicaragua for 10 days to help distribute food and medicine during the Nicaraguan Revolution. De Blasio was an ardent supporter of the ruling socialist government, the Sandinista National Liberation Front,

https://phys.org/news/2019-06-ai-universe-sim-fast-accurateand.html

"The first AI universe sim is fast and accurate—and its creators don't know how it works."

"Ho, He and their colleagues honed the deep neural network that powers D3M by feeding it 8,000 different simulations from one of the highest-accuracy models available."

Now it can spit out a model in 30 milliseconds compared to the 300 hours long model run or the less accurate few minutes model run.

300 hours vs. 30 milliseconds, but they don't know how the new AI works.

"It's like teaching image recognition software with lots of pictures of cats and dogs, but then it's able to recognize elephants," Ho explains. "Nobody knows how it does this, and it's a great mystery to be solved."

No TV ratings yet for the debate. Media in many articles are picking the winners and losers. Many hit the same points, but some have differing results as though they didn't see the same debate as the others. Favoritism? Bias leaking through?

I expect to see some articles some pushing for some candidates to withdraw in the near future.

They'll cite polls or fund-raising or their own personal biases.

The Civil War ended more than 150 years ago, but the U.S. government is still paying a veteran's pension from that conflict.

"One beneficiary from the Civil War [is] still alive and receiving benefits," Randy Noller of the Department of Veterans Affairs confirms.

Irene Triplett – the 86-year-old daughter of a Civil War veteran – collects $73.13 each month from her father's military pension. The identity of Triplett was first reported by The Wall Street Journal in 2014.

https://www.aei.org/publication/busting-college-industrial-complex/

"Yet even as reformers have pushed to remove a variety of barriers to employment, the biggest and most significant barrier to employment in American life — the use of the college degree as a default hiring device — has gone blithely unremarked. Indeed, even as reformers target employment obstacles for felons and florists, the pervasive use of college-degree requirements, despite its dubious legality and profound costs, has bizarrely escaped serious consideration."

Absolutely infuriating post. Using college degrees as a bar to employment. Ability tests have been knocked down as discriminatory, so requiring a college degree is easier to defend legally.

Companies require job applicants to have college degrees even when they aren't needed for the job, because they are less likely to be caught up in a discrimination suit.

This BS was the only reason that at age 30+ I went back to college to get a degree. Without a degree I wasn't worthy of consideration for a job that I could have done without the damn degree.

PLEASE READ THIS AND SEE IF I AM THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS THIS IS CRIMINAL AND AN INDICTMENT OF THE WHOLE COLLEGE SYSTEM.

It's ugly as sin and props up a college system that still can't train young people to be employable.

"Blades of grass and pure white stones
Shelter those who've come and gone

The Democrats and media continue to betray this great country. They are beneath contempt. I consider them evil and contemptuous.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest :), I have something to share. :) I sing with a group called Ad Libs, and we're presenting a patriotic program for a local bank that hosts a Friday Forum with the chamber of commerce and guests.

This is one of the songs. This version of the song is instrumental. I've been using it to learn the words. And, I've been wondering if I'll be able to sing without tears.

joan,

I used to have that trouble when I sang in the church choir years ago. That's a beautiful song, with such poignant meaning.

After that crew last night, I cannot help but be grateful forever for Donald Trump saving us from a return of Clinton rule. I doubt the country would have survived her.

MM, catching up from yesterday--that video you posted for me of all those oh-so-thin New Yorkers before processed food--

I trained from 1979-1984, and I took care of ONE patient in that time who weighed over 300 pounds.
Now I do that each week, if not more frequently.

It's not just just processed food--it's that damned food pyramid with six to eight servings of grains that George McGovern created out of thin air, and the cardiologists' Fake Lipid Theory they promulgated with the support of BigPharma, who could peddle their statins as long as they held that BS to be true. Not to mention BigFood loving the low fat/high carb era. Cheetos and Pringles as health food!
