Meanwhile, the 'audit' in Arizona gets crazier every day: Quote Republicans once referred to Ken Bennett as the "director" of their widely-panned audit of votes in Maricopa County, but he has reportedly lost his privileges to even enter the building where the fiasco is taking place. Bennett, who served as Arizona's Secretary of State and president of the state Senate, was th

Quote No, the full phrase "blue smoke and mirrors" refers to a show by a 'magician' (or 'illusionist' as they seem to prefer to be called now). An openly staged event. The emphasis is on the fakeness, the obviously staged quality of it. Which is why the phrase was commonly used to dismiss political theater from at least the 1970s. Gaslighting is about a much more extensive sort

Quote The closest living relative of T. rex is the chicken. Think about that LOL That's based on the attempt to compare proteins, not DNA, preserved in some odd fossils that seemed to preserve actual soft tissues to modern animal tissues. The best match they got of the proteins they tested was the chicken. How many other animals remain to be checked? Quite a few. Quote Mechanisms of

Quote And she said this isn't a surprise since Trump carried PA by at least 6 to 8% over Biden. This is based on the repos out registering the demos between 2016 and 2020. by about 6% statewide. Its this registration difference which is the big tell there was fraud in the 2020 election in PA. Because of course a Republican will always, always vote for the Party's nominee, even if he's a seria

Given their long-standing rhetorical stance as radicals, and their voting against the certification of electoral votes from a number of states, it's reasonable to believe they would simply be obstructionists on the committee. Rejecting them is a perfectly rational thing to do if you want to have an actual investigation.

Quote But Communism...........McCarthy lives. Sheesh. Yes McCarthyism lives on even if old Joe is gone. The tactics that Trumpers (and Trump himself) are using come from McCarthy's playbook. Claim to have the evidence ("I have here a list...") but don't let anyone else see it. Try to manipulate people with outright lies by claiming to have evidence to back them up. This doesn't work

That's another story I was just going to post. You beat me to it. But here's another: Quote On Thursday, Arizona Senate President Karen Fann offered the public its clearest picture yet of the monthslong audit of Maricopa County’s election, holding a hearing with auditor, Cyber Ninjas CEO, and Hugo-Chavez-somehow-corrupted-the-2020-election-despite-being-dead conspiracy theorist Doug Loga

And what evidence was presented for this claim? Anything? Or was it another 'believe whatever we say because we have the evidence' scam like the Hunter Biden laptop? This case will be different, though. Ballots are public records and subject to public scrutiny. A judge has cleared the way for the audit to be audited by journalists and other investigators. The truth will indeed be coming out soon.

Droughts like this are a historical reality. The signs of past droughts have been recognized by science for decades. Even before this latest one hit, there were too many people out there. It was always a dumb idea to settle so many people in the western part of the country. Now we will have to try to figure out how to deal with the change. Expect agriculture to suffer. California has been a huge

30 years ago, mobile phones were a fancy thing that only rich people had. But... rich people kept buying them, and new ones were designed and produced for years... until they got cheaper and more people could buy them. This has happened with many things over the years. "Automobiles" were a toy for the rich, or at least people with income to waste on a silly hobby. And then they becam

What's even sadder than the idiot dosing their own cat with enough valerian to make even a human sick is the fact that they really do prescribe antidepress

Quote 90% of what currently comprises the Republican Party wasn’t enough to win the electoral college this time. Trumpers are still pretending their coalition is the same one that got Trump elected in the first place. Detached from reality, entirely. The looming problem is that the gerrymandering setup to keep the corporate party in power is still in place, and working to keep the loony party

Quote They're trying to do the same here in PA. My county told them to f*** off. What is happening? Some private organization is trying to audit the vote? If the Pennsylvania State Legislature used its subpoena power, they could not tell them to 'fuck off' -- they'd have to comply. So clearly this is not the same thing as is happening in Arizona.

Quote At some point, one would assume, Trumpers will notice that they’re the only ones left dying of Covid. But I’m not going to hold my breath. And what makes you think they would recognize that is their own fault? As the number of 'conservatives' dying of covid outstrips everyone else, you can bet the conspiracy theories will embrace the death toll as proof of a deliberate 'liberal conspirac

But completely consistent. These are the supporters of Il Dufus. That 'American Carnage' inaugural was addressed to them, the people dying 'deaths of despair'. Too bad he didn't do $#$# to improve their lives. Deaths from drug overdoses of all sorts have continued steadily increasing since that speech.

Are you sure you haven't confused different straits? All of the information I have come across about the Strait of Gibraltar is that it last opened about 6-7 million years ago. This is when the divergence between humans and chimps is believed to have occurred. Only early human ancestors would have been around at that time.

That's not a backward step, but a correction. Emphasis should be on the word "appears" here. If you take the current state of things as a '

The real question is will they ever be able to put Il Dufus on trial? Think about this conundrum: Actual Federal charges are filed in court, and it comes time to begin the process of jury selection. How in will they ever find a jury who isn't already strongly opinionated one way or the other? And even if they think they have such a jury, you can bet that there will be endless appeals based on re

Now you are just trying to be inflammatory. Eminent Domain must by definition include reasonable payment for seized property, at least in the United States. This is written into the Constitution that "conservatives" are so proud of defending. It's in the Fifth Amendment, as part of the 'due process' clause.

That may be true of consumer products, but these are servers in data centers. They are not turned on and off, they stay on constantly. So this is a problem with the physics of semiconductors. They are getting so tiny that random errors can occur in a certain percentage of them. Hopefully the manufacturers will figure out some strategy to make them more stable.

The break-neck rush to 'advance' technology is never a good idea. Anything can be over-extended, and the unexpected side-effects of even apparently good things can be surprising. Now, after 50+ years of pushing to make integrated circuits smaller and faster some inherent problems are cropping up. Most people have probably forgotten the 'spectre' panic where bad designs allowed possible exploi
