Who owns Dominion?
Supposedly Staple Street Capital a private equity firm. But UBS bought $600 million worth of SSC shares for itself or a client a couple of years ago. However another site says SSC has $250 million of assets under management which would seem to make $600 million worth of shares somewhat interesting.

Someone shot a missile at Jose Andre's World Kitchen site in Lviv, either yesterday or Monday. Unclear just who fired it off. No longer photographing or ID'ing missile debris/strikes either, for one reason or another.

No records. What a surprise.

jim nj

Davod,

Did you mean western Ukraine? I read of a missile attack on a site with a name that implied that it served that logistical function.

I presume the Russians are trying to interdict Ukraine's foreign supply lines. I also presume that Ukraine is well aware of that.

Kind of like a cat and mouse game.

I'm sure Russian satellites, drones and spies are working on the issue.

As Mel points out Ukraine is a little coy about releasing photos unless the Russkies hit the wrong thing, like the World Kitchen or that auto repair shop in Lviv.

Melinda

Don't worry Miss M! I'm quite sure that SloJoe has no recollection of it either!

MissMarple2

Mel,

I thought the Secret Service was obligated to keep records. Also, what was the deal with Iranians trying to bribe agents?

It seems to me that the entire government is falling apart.

AP is reporting that the Capitol police have ordered the evacuation of the Capitol Complex due to an aircraft that poses a probable threat.

MissMarple2

Now they have cancelled the alert. Several people say it,s the Army Parachute Team who will perform tonight at the baseball game. 🙄

Jim,NJ. Yes. Should have been Western Ukraine.

For those not from Tennessee, Trump got bad advice and endorsed way too early. This is the "new district" and 24 people applied for the primary. The Trump endorsed is a DC person who moved to the state in November, the district in Feb., never lived in the state before. Could not even identify the interstates (which cut all through the district) in a radio interview, all money raised from Romney/Bush out of state. Great resentment in the district. We have several quite good and established reps running.

Right off the bat years ago I noticed that PolitiFact's chosen moniker sounded like something right out of Orwell's book.
Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I think politifact is technically correct; from the start I thought the embarrassing old husk was doing one of his usual weird gestures to someone else, rather than trying to shake the phantom hand of Corn Pop.
What it doesn't get it is, we don't care.
If he really was shaking Caspar's ephemeral hand we're happy to point it out because he is an awful president and an awful person.
If he wasn't we'll still say he was to make fun of the gruesome old cumquat because he's an awful president and and an awful person.

They know that and think that making tiny, stupid debater's points salvages the awful person they serve when in fact it just lumps them in as some of the other awful people going on lists of ruling class scum to purge when the time comes.

Ignatz,

I couldn’t believe Biden got the nomination, let alone got elected. I have thought him a loathsome person since the Clarence Thomas hearings. Not only that, not one appointee is normal! They are all loons or crooks!

Pinandpuller

Now that I think about it, you’re actually allowed to straighten your hair .

Biden has been loathsome since the abandonment of South Vietnam.

So what is Chris Wallace to do now? I hear there may be a late night spot on a college station in Massachusetts.

There has to be a game show that doesn't require a brain on some obscure cable channel the chip off the old blockhead can host.

Davod

MM2. I know this sounds crazy, but I still think the Dems nominated Biden because they knew the fix was in. For this reason, Biden's campaigning was almost non-existent.

Then again, my Republican friend says that Trump lost the election because he lost the senior vote.
He says the stats show this.

If this is the case, then how come Trump got so many votes than any previous REP president seeking reelection.

Narciso

the germans have been nutz for a long time,


In 1980, West Germany passed a law regulating the change of first names and legal gender. It is called "Gesetz über die Änderung der Vornamen und die Feststellung der Geschlechtszugehörigkeit in besonderen Fällen (de:Transsexuellengesetz – TSG)". That translates as the "Law about the change of first name and determination of gender identity in special cases (Transsexual law – TSG)". Since 1990, following the reunification of East and West Germany, it applies to all of Germany.

Nothing seems to be working. And no one seems to care.

Pinandpuller

“Governments and the ruling classes no longer take their stand on right or even on the semblance of justice, but on a skillful organization carried to such a point of perfection by the aid of science that everyone is caught in the circle of violence and has no chance of escaping from it. This circle is made up now of four methods of working upon men, joined together like the links of a chain ring.

The first and oldest method is intimidation. This consists in representing the existing state organization—whatever it may be, free republic or the most savage despotism—as something sacred and immutable, and therefore following any efforts to alter it with the cruelest punishments. . . . [O]nce [state] authority has come into certain hands, the police, open and secret, the administration and prosecutors, jailers and executioners of all kinds, do their work so zealously that there is no chance of overturning the government , however cruel and senseless it may be.

The second method is corruption. It consists in plundering the industrious working people of their wealth by means of taxes and distributing it in satisfying the greed of officials, who are bound in return to support and keep up the oppression of the people.

…The third method is what I can only describe as hypnotizing the people. . . . This hypnotizing process is organized at the present in the most complex manner, and starting from their earliest childhood, con- tinues to act on men till the day of their death. It begins in their earliest years in the compulsory schools. . . . In countries where there is a state religion, they teach the children the senseless blasphemies of the Church catechisms, together with the duty of obedience to their superiors. In republican states they teach them the savage superstition of patriotism and the same pretended obedience to the governing authorities.

. . . The patriotic superstition is encouraged by the creation, with money taken from the people, of national fêtes, spectacles, monuments, and festivals to dispose men to attach importance to their own nation, and to the aggrandizement of the state and its rulers, and to feel antagonism and even hatred for other nations. . . . [U]nder every government without exception every- thing is kept back that might emancipate and everything encouraged that tends to corrupt the people.

. . . The fourth method consists in selecting from all the men who have been stupefied and enslaved by the three former methods a certain number, exposing them to special and intensified means of stupefaction and brutalization, and so making them into a passive instrument for carrying out all the cruelties and brutalities needed by the government. . . . These physically vigorous young men . . . hypnotized, armed with murderous weapons, always obedient to the governing authorities and ready for any act of violence at their command, constitute the fourth and principal method of enslaving men.

By this method the circle of violence is completed.
Intimidation, corruption, and hypnotizing bring people into a condition in which they are willing to be soldiers; the soldiers give the power of punishing and plundering them (and purchasing officials with the spoils), and hypnotizing them and converting them in time into these same soldiers again.”—Leo Tolstoy (1894)
