    Side note: Remember last week when C-S (I think) noted the errors at the CDC and I pointed out that the errors were being referred to as Process Errors which normally means that somebody important whom the CDC wants to protect was implicated in the screwup. Today, the CDC lab director in charge of the error [...]

    I loved her tactic: You can either be embarrassed by beating up on a woman or you can be embarrassed by being beaten by woman. Your choice. Early equality lesson for Boxturtle: I was watching the girls softball team warm up. The pitcher was LETHAL and even with her softball pitch I think she could [...]

    Let me know when you’ve uploaded the winners. I find I’m enjoying your work.

    He MAJOR failed. MSNBC better understand that the only reason their third rate product survives is because it’s looked upon as a liberal outlet. They’re going to lose their few regular customers by firing reporters for telling inconvenient truths.

    I haven’t got hit yet, but it’s only a matter of time. FDL is a spot where support of Massacres in general is low, never mind support for Israel’s massacres. So we can expect to be beaten upon regularly, though naturally it’s just individuals acting. There’s no organized campaign. Boxturtle (And we ALL believe that, [...]

    I sent a nastygram and got back a canned reply. I suspect that AIPAC has moblized everybody and will not not let MsNBC backslide away from this firing. Their tactics remind me a lot of our religious right’s tactics. However, as I don’t watch MSNBC, I can’t really threaten to switch my viewership. And the [...]

    Good Morning All! I’d have posted sooner, but I made the mistake of following the warlord link about and couldn’t stop reading until done. What an interesting view into a very different world. Neither Hamas nor Israel cares about the Gaza civilians. If Hamas cared, they’d take a ceasefire that didn’t give them everything they [...]

    I think I’d pay to use the Crooks & Liars logo. I can’t think of anything better.

    Boxturtle (I’m SURE C&L would be open to a cash transaction on that. :-) )

    That would be a great name for a villain team! They’d be hated from one coast to the other and people would show up just to see them get beaten.

    Boxturtle (if I were to start a villain team, I’d call it “congress”)

  • If Apple had created those backdoors to comply with CALE, they would have no problem admitting that and referring questioners to DoJ and congress.

    They’re denying, despite the fact that we’ve got the bloody code. This is NSA work.

    When I was young, I loved big time wrestling. Killer Brooks. The Sheik. Bobo Brazil. My father sat down with me one day and dissected a match, showing how they signaled each other, didn’t actually hit on an elbow drop or a jump off the top rope, and showed how to tell how choreographed the [...]

    I shall be going to the farmers market this afternoon as well. I know they’ve got sweet corn and heirloom tomatoes and I have hopes peppers are in.

    Boxturtle (And perhaps some pickled asparagus)

    I could be getting senile just as easily. :-)

    The shootings like MiB is covering are caused by fear, frequently unjustified fear, but real. The police shootings are caused by anger and/or protection of privilege.

    Maybe what we need is a wrestling approach, where there are certain teams that become villains and part of the marketing is good guys vs bad guys. The first villain would be named “The Klansmen” and would feature an all white team. Then you’d have “The Pigs” who’d feature nearly nude cheerleaders recruited from the [...]

    The police shootings are a separate issue for me. It’s pretty clear that most large city police departments are out of control and much more interested in protecting one class of citizens than another. A few long prisons sentences and civil liability NOT covered by the taxpayers would be all it would take to solve [...]

    Yup. Named after Mike Brown, who founded the team. According to a search I just did, there are about 100 families named Redskin nationwide. What if they had founded the team? We get bent out of shape over the team name, yet we have no problem with corporate criminals owning naming rights to stadiums. BofA. [...]

    Am I the only one getting really sick of seeing all these stories where someone gets scared and starts shooting? Not like the Zimmerman case (That was a hunt and a murder), but where someone is actually scared (justifiably or not) and shoots as the first response. If I were actually frightened (don’t think I [...]

    Billionaires are stubborn as a group. Not used to taking NO for an answer. I’m torn on this one. Sometimes I think political correctness has gone too far (Nobody is picking on the “Browns” or the “Reds” or the “Indians”) and I think if i were the owner I’d tell everyone to get bent, offer [...]

    It’s an interesting theory and has been around for awhile. If pressure on the magma chamber is somehow relieved, the volcano won’t erupt. But what happens at the pressure relief “valve” is very much an open question. A semi humorous attempt to quantify that: Borehole diameter = 12″. Vent diameter = 80ft and there are [...]
