Monday Bits & Pieces

Minnie Apple Us decided to send out a guide on how to be a good victim.  No mention of armed self-defense as an option.  My favorite part was the “Be a good witness” section.

“Well, I was trying to be a good witness and memorize their faces and the clothing they were wearing, but then the trans-woman they called “Moochie” coldcocked me and then 20 or 30 more people ran up and started kicking and stomping me.  That’s the last thing I remember before I regained consciousness in the hospital and they told me I had been in a coma for almost two weeks.”

Former SF Mayor Willie Brown and some cheap hobag he picked up

Kamalatoe Bitchface’s ex-boyfriend has a weekly column in the SF Constrictedtesticle The print version of this week’s column is titled, “Democrats can make voting by mail work.”

Willie Brown: Why Democrats own the GOP in mail voting

President Trump is right when he says Democrats have an advantage in a vote-by-mail election.

Anyone with a good organization and a bit of smarts can turn voting by mail to their advantage. I know, because we’ve done it here in San Francisco.

We did it in my first campaign for mayor in 1995. Gavin Newsom did it in his first mayoral election in 2003, and Mayor Ed Lee’s team did it in his first election in 2011.

The idea originated locally with political consultant Jack Davis, who concluded before my first mayoral run that the key to victory lay with people who are registered to vote but rarely turn out.

In the months leading up to the 1995 election, we sent out teams to sign up as many people as possible to vote by mail. Then we logged their names and addresses into a database.

When the city Department of Elections mailed out the absentee ballots, we set up a second army of door knockers and phone bankers to make sure the newly signed-up vote-by-mail people filled out their ballots and sent them in.

One result was that the absentee returns in the public housing developments that year matched the absentee returns in Pacific Heights.

BLM will handle the phone banking. Antifa will take care of the door knocking. You can save yourself lots of stress by signing your ballot as soon as you get it and then give it to the mostly peaceful Antifas who gather outside your door. Let them fill it out.

Same SFChron, different writer:

Joe Biden will soon choose his running mate, and Black Lives Matter co-creator Alicia Garza says it had better be a Black woman.

“A Black woman in particular and not just a woman of color,” the Oakland resident told The Chronicle’s “It’s All Political” podcast, because “Black voters are who essentially made Joe Biden the presumptive nominee. That’s facts on facts.”

The facts being that Biden’s campaign was floundering until Democratic Rep. James Clyburn, South Carolina’s most powerful Black elected official, endorsed him before that state’s primary in February. That locked in South Carolina’s substantial African American vote for Biden, who had been thumped in the first three primary and caucus states.

Four days later, voters in most of the Super Tuesday states — California was an exception — followed South Carolina’s lead, and Biden was suddenly on his way to locking up the nomination.

Garza’s demand is a sign of how far the movement has come. Now, “Black Lives Matter” is painted down the middle of streets in New York, Washington, D.C., and Oakland. Two in 3 Americans polled for a Gallup survey released last week said they support the racial justice protests that have occurred in more than 2,000 cities since George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis police custody in May.

Four years ago, few Democratic office-seekers would even say the words “Black Lives Matter.” Now, the party’s presidential nominee-to-be isn’t just saying the words, he’s listening.

Garza, now a principal in the Black Futures Lab think tank, said the “Biden Plan for Black America” sounds a lot like what her organization is proposing. Among his proposals: He’s calling for a $15,000 tax credit for first-time home buyers to help Black families build wealth, promising to pump $70 billion into historically black colleges and universities, and wants to triple funding for schools with low-income students.

Garza said this is a next step for the movement: getting politicians to enact policies that help the Black community.

“It is heartening to me that after months of lobbying, we’re starting to see that this campaign is listening and recognizing that Black communities are not only central to them winning a presidential election, but Black communities are also central to making sure that our democracy survives,” Garza said.

Black activists tend to be black separatists too. Black separatists are opposed to assimilation. The reason I bring it up is I would like someone to ask Alicia Garza what she thinks about Kamalatoe being married to a white guy.

    Extortion worked for the Democrats when Obama was running for office, and probably well before then, so why not take it to the next level? Never mind that mail in voting will end the anonymous vote, or that it makes it incredibly to lose, or manufacture votes, as needed by whom ever is “countng ” them.

    Part of the fun this year is misleading insta-pollsters by giving misleading answers.

    • Fred Flintstone says:

      It’s really insane to see how misled most polls are. The polling industry has learned nothing from 2016, so we still see crap like this.

      https://www.270towin.com/maps/consensus-2020-electoral-map-forecast

      If those folks are to be believed, the election is basically over and Biden wins big.

      I do that! 🤣

    • somebody says:

      They call our house all the time, I don’t answer. I answered once several weeks ago, they were wanting to survey my college age daughter. I told them she was unavailable, haven’t answered since.

      In 2016 I played games with pollsters, but I soon found myself swamped with pollster calls. I think they share data bases.

      Living in a swing state we get inundated with all sorts of political calls. The last thing I want is to add more by getting myself on the pollster lists. We have learned if we vote on the first day of early voting, within a day or two the deluge of phone calls stop.

    • Ann says:

      I am in NYS and have been getting poll calls, a lot of them! I usually hang up because they are DNC, but a woman roped me in last week before I could say no. Interesting questions. They wanted to know how I felt about everyone from Trump to Biden to Pelosi, etc. and how I was voting. Since I live in a very purple area (my subdivision actually voted for Trump in 2016), I did not worry too much about a knock on my door. Well, that and Hubby is loaded for bear (literally).

      I do have to wonder about the “blue wave” or “Biden has it in the bag” with all the calls I am getting. Why in the world would the DNC be doing polling in NYS if they are so secure in their chances unless it is to pad suppression poll numbers now? Hmmm, maybe I will start responding to all of the calls. {insert evil grin}

    I do surveys on Amazon Mechanical Turk when I can’t sleep. They are always worded in a way to get the responses the administrator is looking for. Questions are loaded. There is no middle ground on most. You are a raging white supremacist or a prog. I have been doing it for years. Used to be you could let the money build up. I’d leave it to buy something I don’t need. I got da pup a 55 ” tv after 6 months. Now they transfer it every 3 days to bank account. It also has a lot of crowd sourcing. I keep each requester under 20 a month to avoid tax liabilities. Some of the stuff is so easy. I filter pictures on company websites. Yep people post filth by mistake. Some people actually make a living doing it. I do it out of boredom. Surveys can be fun. I did one yesterday which took ten minutes on Covid for 1.50. It really pushed me to respond I was scared to walk out my house. You denied the bug or were crippled by fear. No middle. Many of these are done by Harvard and other elite schools. They publish the data. It’s not real. Very much like BLM. Hard to refute Black Lives Matter without a 30 minute conversation about the group. It is a clever brand.

    Ellie’s new rules-

    2. Hank may eat her dinner.
    3. Hank may share the bag of doggie treats.
    4. Hank may choose his spot to stretch out on the deck first.
    5. Hank may share the water bowl outside, but he must wait his turn inside.
    6. Hank is not allowed to go for a walk on a leash and leave her home. Uh-Uh-, no way. Isn’t going to happen.

    • Mothy67 says:

      Bell kinda grew up when we got Gracie. She was spoiled rotten. I was scared she would act out. Nope Bella took on the older sis role. Gracie is a hot mess. I think they took her pups away too soon. She is always forlorn. Sits and just stares off into space. Gentle and needy but she has spats where she is just gone. She was a breeder. I assume she aged out. She had been adopted and returned several times. My brother brought her here. She was living at a vets office. So come 5 she was locked in a cage in the dark alone. She needs constant contact. I am paying nothing for Bell or Grace. The vet sends food. All care is pro bono. He couldn’t take in another pet. We have rules. I think you can have 4 pets. He would have kept the sad sad dog, but the rules. Anywho Bad girl, aka Bell, has known for years when i don the Air Force hat or put my shoes or flip flops on in the living room it is walk time. I cannot walk Grace and Bell together. I can spend a day with Bell. We can walk for hours. She is leashed, but it is not relevant. She is by my side. Gracie is a whole different animal. She loves walks but she just stops dead cold and stares at something way off. I take her first in the morning. Bella used to freak out from excitement when I put on my walking cap. She gets I take Gracie out for15 minutes. She waits. A year ago I was buying magic skin. Bell got so excited pre walk she would scratch me from enthusiasm. Now she just waits. I say you ready bad girl. She gets her harness after I have walked Gracie and almost behaves.

      I think I’ve gotten those messages, I just try again later it usually works. Twitter is weird, they still treat me like a stalker, so I have to keep people I follow under 5000 until followers catch up or something?

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Well if you bought those Russian bots by the truckload like all good D comrades to lift to your stats and put some change in their pockets they would probably give you a blue check and feature your tweets on google searches. Before they realized you were not of the SJW body.

      Well that explains that hashtag I was seeing. How weird. Twitter still up to same old BS.

      • Shez ZK says:

        To add on to this, I was merely reading comments on a Tweet a few minutes ago and a tiny notice popped up at the bottom of the page briefly, saying: “You have been rate limited. Please try again later.”

        Went to my Settings & privacy to clear out my “Twitter interests” data and kept getting a “Twitter is over capacity. Please try again later.” notice as I unchecked dozens of boxes. I really detest how they track and follow everything we do online. One of the boxes I unchecked was ‘Bed and breakfast’. Only place I’ve used that term was on this blog the other day in a comment, didn’t use it on Twitter at all. But then all of my hubby’s sports and golf google searches always end up in my Twitter Interests data too.

        • lateblum says:

          I got that “rate limited” message a week ago Sunday. I thought it odd. I’d never had that before and I’d only been reading stuff on Portland’s “mostly peaceful protest”. I thought “eff this” and turned it off. About 20 minutes later, I went back and no problemo. (Of course, iPad doesn’t want me to write p r o b l e m o. It must be racist.)

They have expressed how miseable I need to be if my little girl gets with child. They exhibit glee. I have had many friends terminate. I have never even intimated judgement. Why would adults wish an awful choice on a 13 year old. I talk with Shay. My great grandmother was an orphan. She banged my great grandfather to escape servitude. He was a train engineer. My grandmother loved her some scotch. 15 when she had Aunt Shirley. My grandmother got married off in 1918 to a much older man. Daddy John was a mail pouch chewing old guy. Nanny liked sex. She was a hoot. I loved my Nanny. My mother had Jim at 15. She needed to get away. My sister had Scotty at 16. Fucking at home. Kayla, Shayla’s mom, had her at 18. Her dad had killed himself. Duh she was scared– a kid gave meaning.
    I knock on the door everynight. I always give three knocks. Ugh I am so annoying. Go away. I am for always gonna be the guy standing outside. I will always be standing near my baby. Kid is my responsibility. my proggie friends do not get to write this story. I love my kid. She will stand tall.

    NC is getting hit hard as Isaias moves ashore. I have friends who live in Oak Island, NC, and a tornado has hit there and caused damage. Also have relatives who live just inland from the beaches. The dirty east side of the storm has swapped and the west side is now the dirty side. Lots of tornado warnings. All my friends stay alert for tornado warnings as this storm moves north. Stay safe!

        So, what is in store for 2020? Many Republicans walk on eggshells fearing the Democrats’ October Surprise. But the fact is, they are out of surprises. Over the course of four and a half years, President Trump’s opponents have not only thrown the kitchen sink at him but have dismantled the plumbing in the entire house, all without success. Just for a reminder of the few failed efforts:

    • Constance says:

      That is a tough set of choices. I have to go with 2. Biden picks VP. But if they are going to knock him off they shouldn’t pick a VP yet. Of course they will want a man at the top of their ticket and they aren’t going to take Bernie. I’ll be shocked if there are any indictments.

  24. taw46 says:

    Why I hate TS and hurricanes. Everyone wrote this one off because it didn’t do anything all the way up the coast of Florida. But as it nears NC it goes insane. Winds over 100 mph with many tornadoes. Flooded streets, damage to homes from tornadoes, roofs off due to winds, people hiding in closets and bathrooms. You can’t EVER let your guard down with these storms.

    • swanspirit says:

      Hurricanes intensify over warm seas, and the gulf stream has warmed up the coastal waters, so I am not surprised this storm got worse, right before it made landfall. I just hope being over land breaks it back down.

      • DeniseVB says:

        It’s passing over us right now, gusty with a few branches down, we’ll see what the other side brings 🙂 Inland is getting hit worse, most small towns on tidal water will probably have a flooding problem from the surge.

      Prepare for the worst, hope for the best 😀 These things, even in their weakest forms, are so unpredictable, but this has definitely been a strange one.

    I wrote a blog post about how herd immunity is like a microwave burrito and linked to a NYT article that actually gets something right about the effects of COVID-19 lock downs.
    https://daysofchange.wordpress.com/2020/08/03/natural-selection/

    • Constance says:

      Very interesting and readable. I really think that the virus will start slowing a lot by the end of August. What do you think? I’m just going on the idea that the CDC said there were about 100 cases March 1st. and by the end of June they said there were 23 million. So if 100 people spread it to 23 million in 4 months how many will 23 million spread it to in the next 4 months. I say it works it’s way through most people or at least enough to burn out by September. Then what will Democrats do to fuck up the country?

      • 1539days says:

        When the disease was first detected in the US and other countries, they estimated R0 to be 3 or more (1 person spreads to 3, etc). In a place where R0 is below 1, the disease will eventually die out. In NY, there are currently 600 new cases per day and about 9 deaths, making the case fatality rate 1.5%. It looks like those cases are mostly in upstate NY, where the herd immunity is less than 10%.

        In the case of 100 turning into 23 million, the growth is logarithmic, but so is the collapse. The least social people are likely to escape the opportunity to be infected, possibly until almost no one has the active virus. They are at the center of the burrito. A lot of the graphs on Wikipedia show new cases in terms of percentage. In NY, the numbers are currently equal to the numbers the state had in the first week of the lock down in mid-March.

        It will probably take 2 month or so for the curve to flatten significantly after a “spike” if herd immunity is the main factor in reducing overall cases. My county masked up on April 1 and the infection and mortality rates were basically equal to similar counties. The main outbreaks were from nursing homes and illegals working in seasonal agriculture.

      I mean it. Sports. The kids who are active have the true sense of self. Ethan, the gay kid who is not gay, is my buddy. He knows himself. The kids I worry about bringing a gun to school are the uninvolved kids. Christian was the sweetest child. I walked him home. His mom is a stripper and the dad is doing life. He was fine until 7th grade. He suddenly became this dark child. He hates everything.. I know my baby girl. She is athletic. Shay shines. I am sort of like Christian. My body was unfit. It sucked growing up trapped in a hell. You find your space. I did archery. I might have gone Olympics had they not done drug tests. Christian gets rewarded for anger and pain from the school..He gets told by the school that his misery is justified. He is blanketed in anger. My brat has a gay great uncle. I had a few times they sliced me open. I ain’t playing when it comes to my child. We greet the day. We do not throw pity parties. I am yuuuge on writing her story. Shaypup could have followed a script. Oops she is obnoxious. Who gets a great gay uncle not a gay uncle. She is my sister’s son’s child. Nobody gets an asshole that had open hearts. I done did the gaping hole in my throat. So fun.
      I can send postcards from hell. They strapped me down and ran glue sticks all over my body. Metal bands they subjecting me to. I was naked. Oh fuck no. I don’t get to leave that era behind. I suffer from insomnia. I wake up asleep with my body against my door. My wee one does not need to spend her time paying a visit to my hell. I paid my dues. I am not willing to pay others.

      He should suck it up and just pick Bernie, what a team that would be, eh?

      • Constance says:

        Bernie could wear a dress and say he identifies as a butt ugly, lesbian, native American, female. Warren has already established that some native Americans are fair skinned. It would be a test of Progressive faith for followers of The Way. But of course why should Bernie push Biden’s sorry ass over the finish line? That is a job that is only appropriate for a cis gendered dark skinned woman.

      My brother always says, “I don’t understand why Republicans aren’t for abortion rights. I mean, they want to get the government out of our lives. Why would they want to control a woman’s body if that’s what they believe?” When I tell him Republicans believe women should be able to do whatever they want with their own bodies, he doesn’t get it. It’s the one that’s growing inside their bodies they shouldn’t be able to kill at will. The disconnect is not over a woman’s rights. It whether the unborn child has any.

    Right in the thick of it. High winds, torrential rain, tornado warning, it’s kinda tense at he moment. But it is moving North pretty quickly. I will be glad when the tornado warning is over.

      Much better when these storms pass over in the daylight. This was about 20 minutes ago here

      When I went to bed last night, my local weather report said scattered thunderstorms throughout the day. Where the grandies are a bit north, the afternoon said “torrential rains” so we postponed their arrival a day. This morning the forecasts have flipped. It’s gray and cloudy here. The air doesn’t feel like tropical storm weather. At least not yet. I’m not expecting much from the northern edge of this one, but I could get surprised. The tropical storm warnings are up. It just doesn’t have that feel.

      • elliesmom says:

        It does now. I took the doggies down to the beach. When we got there, the air was really still, and it’s very humid. That feels like the “calm before a storm”. Before we left, the wind had started picking up, but it’s coming from the west. The beach faces south, and the rippes caused by the wind are blowing across the beach, not full on. I’m about 15 miles west or 25 miles north of open ocean Closer to some ocean beaches, but they’re in the bays. With western winds, if it stays that way, there won’t be as much rain.

    “A former MSNBC producer wrote an open letter on Monday explaining why she left the far-left network a little over a week ago, saying that they are a “cancer” that is “stoking national division” by amplifying “fringe voices” and forcing “journalists to make bad decisions on a daily basis.”

I’m just saying, they are taking for granted the health and well being of their bodies.) It’s just thoughtless.

        I hear ya. At that age, they think they’re invincible by pouring drugs, alcohol and other crap ingested or attached to their bodies. It took about 20 years for my daughter to tell me I was right. Told her, now you tell your daughter the same things. LOL, her response was “and make her hate me?”. Gah, I love being in my 70’s now, I just don’t GAF.

    another poison pill in the virus package. will the republicans have the backbone to stop it or will they cave?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Meanwhile, over at #WalkAway, while a great Trump support group, there is no love lost on the GOPe either. Walking away from the Dem party doesn’t make you a Republican. Country before Party and Trump Wins !

      Considering the gun sales in recent months, coupled with the sales during the Obama years. That’s a lot of Americans to piss off.

    Okay… dd#2 may be discharged today, depending on her latest Doppler test. She sounds much healthier this morning.
    I have the grandgirlies today while their parents finish packing; they move into their new place on Saturday. I’ll be busy with them throughout the week, but mostly today and Sunday while my son and dil clean the “old” house. Life goes on. Masks and all.
    BTW, they moved to a house closer to the girls’ school. I hope there comes a time when school is open and the girls and I can actually walk there.

    I hate this POS. I grew up believing that our form of government protected the minority from the majority. Fuck mob rule.

    Radio City Christmas Spectacular canceled for first time ever, the latest casualty of COVID-19

    Ho ho … oh no!

    The annual Christmas season appearance of The Rockettes in Radio City became the latest casualty of COVID-19, with officials announcing the beloved holiday celebration was canceled for the first time in its 87-year existence.

      Because all the “experts” are talking out of both sides of their mouths. I wonder if Fauci, CDC WHO et al realize that all they accomplished was to have us lose trust in them. I really wish they didn’t cave.

      From the link:

      “We regret that the 2020 production of the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes … has been canceled due to continued uncertainty associated with the COVID-19 pandemic,” said a Tuesday statement from MSG Entertainment.

      “We are disappointed for everyone involved with the show, as well as for the many fans who make the Christmas Spectacular a cherished part of their holiday tradition.”

        Fireworks store at a mall?

          From https://www.jpost.com/breaking-news/large-explosion-rocks-beirut-report-637475

          According to the Daily Star, two explosions were reported at the port.
          The source of the explosion was unclear. LBCI Lebanon News claimed that a fire had broken out at the port and then triggered an explosion of a nearby warehouse storing fireworks. According to the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Mayadeen news, the explosion occurred in a warehouse storing benzine, a flammable chemical. Sources from Hezbollah told OTV Lebanon that there was “no truth” to reports that the explosion was caused by an Israeli strike on Hezbollah weapons at the port.

          • Gram Krakka says:

            Also looked like there were thick walled concrete grain storage silos at port that blew up. Concrete chunks flying and thick dust may have come from these silos.

            Not many people realize how explosive grain dust can be.
            In an earlier life I worked with dry dusty chemicals stored in silos so had to learn about explosion potential.

    @Gram Krakka
    IDK what blew up, but you are absolutely right about the grain silos. Highly explosive.

    Trump has the best approval ratings of any president in recent history at this point in his administion. But you would never know that by watching the news. This was the most accurate pollster in 2016.

    So I got apologies today from friends who thought it funny yesterday that the little person I have been with for almost 14 years might one day be pregnant and how I would demand an abortion. I have always been pro life, but I have stood with friends who made a choice. I am not sure where the venom came from. Hate towards a young girl they have never met. It is unbridled jealousy. I made a choice with my pup. It had costs. I live in suburbia. I have to cut grass. I never thought me would climb a ladder to put up motion detected flood lights. I have always been able to dedicate myself. I do things 1000 percent. I was just shy of 40 when Shay was born. I had enough cash and all the time in the world. Most of my friends waited until late to mid forties to have kids. There is always an opportunity cost. A 25 year old parent can play catch. They chose careers and wealth. Sometimes I think they treat kids as accessories. So many are loaded up on drugs. I simply spent time with Shay. I could not be prouder. It is not always easy. She excels. I built that. I is not going to hide if and when she decides to move on. I saw my sister give birth. She had Scotty at home. The screams. I held my youngest brother in my arms. He kept singing What’s Love Got l to Do With It. I will never walk away from my kid. I need to knock on her door every night. Scotty drowned because my sister was not there for him. I cannot forgive myself for going off to college. I am always going to knock on a door. There is never going to be a second Shay does not know I am there. Pup reaches high and she grabs the brass ring. I, unlike my friends, do not allow her to throw a laptop. I do not go to ER with bruises. My kid does not beat me. Somehow my affluent friends accept shit. Kids are on the spectrum. What? I adore my brat. Knock it off. Most kids are not on the spectrum. Yet adults wish unwanted pregnancy on my 13 year old. How ugly are you inside if all you have is wishing pain on a child. Yep they are progressives.

      That is the key to good parenting.

        Sarah is dying. She was/is .my Aunt Dunny. Alzheimer’s. Best Aunt ever. I was nothing. A dying infant. She had my Snoopy get a bed next to me in ICU.
        I get to live and love Annie’s Song. How many people get to love Annie’s Song.
