NEW:

The judge orders the parties to "proceed with unsealing the relevant materials," rejecting Ghislaine Maxwell's new bid.

"The Court is troubled--but not surprised--that Ms. Maxwell has yet again sought to muddy the waters as the clock ticks closer to midnight," she adds.

Right JiB, I know what you mean. Not feeling very confident here either. They're running out the clock. The teachers will hold our kids hostage and close the schools. And the postal workers will steal the election. That's what I'm feeling now.

Sorry for the pessimism.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

From a friend Bill Crane who is the political go to on WSB-TV and a long time friend of Herman Cain...

One last anecdote, as news outlets and particularly cable networks, will continue to insinuate that Herman caught COVID19 while attending a Trump campaign rally in Tulsa, sans mask, I think you should know that it was Cain's daughter who came home to be with Herman and his wife Gloria, experiencing several COVID19 symptoms. Herman later was takING her to be cared for at an area hospital. Herman having had multiple forms of chemotherapy as aggressive treatments against his prior cancers had a somewhat compromised immune system. As his daughter was being taken in to care, Herman stood up out of his car to check on her and collapsed at the door to the E.R. He was taken into the hospital as well, and unfortunately this virus did the rest...but even until the end, Herman was fighting back and I hear from those who did speak to or Email with him, he still had those jokes and that smile and high spirit with him until the end.

DrJ

Does anyone have a good recent overview of Black Lives Matter?

The reason I ask is that I had a discussion with MrsJ, and she is convinced that the group is set up to oppose to racism against blacks in all forms. I spelled out my understanding, which is quite different.

A reference article would help. Organization, goals/manifesto, funding and so forth would help.

Thanks!

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

The one thing that I am most certain Black Lives Matter is not in the least interested in is eliminating racism.
In fact since, other than the few nutjob powerless neo Nazi types, actual racism is pretty much a dead letter, they have had to invent it to pretend to fight it to advance their real goals, destroying the West and freedom.

Gentlejim

JiB,
Thanks.

My question about the ledge pertains to any potential increase in rent. I’m asking because I haven’t received any correspondence from the landlord. I also can’t recall any stipulations as to when music has to be turned down.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--I would have changed "it's" to "it was" and "can" to "could have".--

I'm sure glad that perspective didn't prevail in the 1770s...or 1812, or 1860, or 1912, or 1921, or 1932, or 1941, or 1950, or 1968, or 1973, or 1980, or 1992, or 2008, or 2012, or 2016, or...

I hope we both live long enough for me to say 'I told you so'.

Gentlejim

DrJ,

I forget who posted this link for BLM recently: https://www.influencewatch.org/non-profit/black-lives-matter-foundation/

Good luck

DrJ

Thanks all. The links, while helpful, are less complete than what I am looking for. I should do the searches myself, but I thought someone would have a convenient reference.

My understanding is that Black Lives Matters is solely about police brutality against blacks, and has nothing to do with general racism. They have said nothing about black-on-black violence. They are Marxist to the core. And they have raised a huge amount of money.

MrsJ does not believe this, and I'm afraid that the short articles so far won't change her opinion. She is reasonable, though, and responds to facts.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

And I spoke too soon on the Federal bureaucracy.
They sent my Smith and Wesson to the wrong Post Office; one that is in a suburb of Sacramento.
My local PO has an email in to them, so now I wait to see if the next tracking update is it being forward that last 50 miles up here or some goombah deciding it's undeliverable and next stop is back home to Ohio to start all over again.

DrJ

GentleJim,

That's a pretty good start. Thanks!

Hopefully, the numbskull at the wrong PO doesn’t grab it and say Christmas came early.

Scott Adams has a Periscope up which points out that President Trump chose the treatment that a majority of doctors in the world would use (the one anonamom would use). If it works, great! If it doesn't work, no harm done.

However. if you believe CNN (Orange man isn't following science, HCQ will kill you, Trump is stupid!) and Trump is right and the use of HCQ and zinc works, by scaring people from taking it CNN could be responsible for killing tens of thousands of Americans.

--Like we are the same people who prevailed all those other times.--

There is a tendency for people to think their era is uniquely bad or uniquely corrupt or their fellow citizens uniquely weak.
Sometimes they're right. Usually they're wrong.
Do you think the people were all the same all those other times but now they're different?
Perhaps in those other times there were just as many or perhaps even more dopes and crooks and brigands. And perhaps now there are just as many or more strong, smart and heroic people of virtue who have yet to be tested as our ancestors were and who don't think in the past tense about our present circumstances.

In any event why the hostility just because I don't consider the country a dead loss full of parboiled frogs?

Jane

It’s not over you guys - although we lost a month. I hope Trump used it to plot. We need to see what effect - if any the Durham report has. If any. I refuse to become pessimistic - although I’ve been on the ledge since day one. (GentleJim, please remind me to get earplugs so you can play your music all night long)

A liberal friend who is a medical person just texted me: “if you do nothing else listen to Fauci”. I texted back: “Fauci is a moron”. End of conversation.

Everybody's pissed off, myself included, because of the four year insanity provoked by the enemedia. I'll say it for the last time: trust the voters to make the right choice like they did in 2016. They didn't really have a good choice in 2012 and 2008; we just thought otherwise at the time.

Captain Hate

If I was a betting person I'd put money that my pcp is conservative, although there are very good reasons why I'm not a betting person. My cardiologist's assistant is a big MAGA person. I don't have a clue about any others which is probably a good thing.

lyle

I’d guess the lib/conservative ratio in the medical professions is 80/20.

DrJ

In yet another note, over the past few days I have been watching one of daddy's favorites: Perry Mason.

Overall it holds up pretty well. The scripts are solid, as is the acting. The cars are great. The show is entertaining.

What is striking is the difference in women's roles and fashion then and now. There are very few women of direct power and influence. Mostly they are secretaries, wives, or gold-diggers. Bras give torpedo-shaped boobs, and waist lines are tiny. Fashion styles are very out-of-date.

Men's fashion has not changed much. The PI garb is dated, but he is supposed to be cool, as opposed to Mason and the business folks.

Everyone wears hats. And there is a politeness and respect between people that has been lost.

The courtroom scenes of course are outrageously inaccurate.

Still, it is worth watching, if for nothing else than a snapshot into the time. Recommended.

lyle

BTW, I love my PCP but I wouldn’t for a second believe he is the slightest bit copacetic with my political views. But he never starts lecturing me on guns because he’s an avid bird hunter so I have that going for me. He lives next door to some of my oldest friends so I have socialized with him around the holidays several times.

jimmyk

Besides a-mom, who isn’t a lib? Out of my three doc friends, only one is conservative.

I don't see why doctors (in contrast with lawyers) would necessarily be more liberal than average. Maybe a little, but many of them are essentially business people who have had to put up with a lot of crap from government interference.

Those doctors from the censored video like Simone Gold, and lots of other like them, don't seem too liberal.

My humble theory on the “postpone the election” tweet: @realDonaldTrump knew Dems would immediately scream “NO DELAY!” For some reason we have yet to understand, he wants every one of them *on the record* saying NO! to a delay (& himself on record as open to it) Watch.

DrJ

many of them [docs] are essentially business people

I disagree. Most docs these days are employees. There was a huge consolidation after Obamacare. The big hospital chains took over. Out here at least, few of the independent practices remain. There are some, but not many.

Still, the docs I have had are really irritated with the amount of paperwork they now have to do.

sbwaters

Most medical doctors are well-educated in their narrow field but even pre-med where I went to school shorted them on legitimate Liberal Arts.

History? Literature? Government? Nope.

I love your response to your libtard friend.

I also enjoy Perry Mason. I haven’t watched in quite some time. I’m trying to make it through the latest season of Fauda.

I disagree. Most docs these days are employees.

Yes, but that's the point. They had to give up being in private practice because of all the interference. I guess i should have said "frustrated ex-businessmen," but I thought it was clear.

lyle

What’s a “Yankees game”? 🤔

jimmyk

I should add, it's partly Obamacare and related issues that have forced doctors to become employees, but also the plaintiff bar, and huge malpractice premiums.

I have a cousin by marriage who bent my ear for half an hour on this. He's trying to stay in private practice, but says insurance companies will pay him something like $75 for a patient visit, while giving much larger amounts to hospitals per visit for the same services. He says he's being driven out of business, and when he's tried to negotiate with the insurance companies they won't budge. I don't really know what's behind that, but it's post-Obamacare development.

I loved the Perry Mason theme music--very arresting and drew you right into whatever implausible melodrama was on tap that day--and I watched it every day as a kid, right after the Flintstones (a rather incongruous match, but kids don't really care). That show made me want to be a lawyer, but at some point I did figure out that to be a lawyer required memorizing a lot of dry stuff, just as I figured out that being an opera singer required several hours a day practice--so being lazy I went for being an English prof.
