These white-guilt fuckers can agree to whatever deal they want... but when they get laid-off... they should be treated as-if they voluntarily quit unprompted. Because that's what they did. No unemployment benefits or early-retirement payout or anything that's coming to someone who lost his job involuntarily.

Minneapolis teachers union contract calls for layoffs of white teachers first
Teachers are normally laid off or excessed based on seniority alone, but the new agreement adds a racial component as well.


By Evan Stambaugh -August 14, 2022


A Minneapolis teachers union contract stipulates that white teachers will be laid off or reassigned before “educators of color” in the event Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) needs to reduce staff.

After the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers (MFT) and MPS struck a deal on March 25 to end a 14-day teacher strike, the two sides drew up and ratified a new collective bargaining agreement complete with various proposals.

One of the proposals dealt with “educators of color protections.” The agreement states that if a non-white teacher is subject to excess, MPS must excess a white teacher with the “next least” seniority.

“Starting with the Spring 2023 Budget Tie-Out Cycle, if excessing a teacher who is a member of a population underrepresented among licensed teachers in the site, the District shall excess the next least senior teacher, who is not a member of an underrepresented population,” the agreement reads.

According to the United Federation of Teachers, “excessing” means “reducing staff in a particular school when there is a reduction in the number of available positions in a title or license area in that school.”

The agreement adds that non-white teachers, as well as those working in various programs, “may be exempted from district-wide layoff(s) outside seniority order.” The agreement also prioritizes the reinstatement of teachers from “underrepresented populations” over white teachers.

Ireland is lovely. Planning the trip will be a good thing for you both. Focus on that. I have lots of suggestions on what to do, what to see, what to avoid.

I'm sure they do, though perhaps not that often. It's common to spot them in Connecticut now. That is huge btw, it was like seeing a unicorn when I was a kid. We'd go on field trips to the sanctuary and sit shivering in the rain for hours hoping some speck in the distance might turn out to be one. Now if you go hiking in the right area you've got good odds of a sighting.

Which brings me back to "not that often". Despite seeing them pretty regularly I've only seen a fish catch once. On the other hand, I spotted it because there was a guy on the side of the road with a professional camera clearly interested in something. Presumably he wasn't there at random, so you just need to know the right spots.

Fucking hell -

So we read my wife's medical results. They post them on line and you can log in and read them. Okay... so we do this and read the word carcinomatosis. Okay... yeah... so what is this word? And so we look up the word and it goes like this.
What type of cancer is carcinomatosis?
Carcinomatosis isn’t a type of cancer. It’s a rare condition that means cancer in one part of your body has spread, blanketing another part of your body with several new tumors. Sometimes, carcinomatosis (car-see-no-MA-toe-sis) is the first indication you have cancer. But carcinomatosis usually happens when you’ve been dealing with cancer for some time. Unfortunately, carcinomatosis is a sign your cancer is getting worse and can’t be cured. Healthcare providers may recommend treatment that eases your symptoms and gives you as much time as possible to be with your loved ones
and my wife says... "Yeah... well I have been wanting to die for years now."

Fucking hell... but... she didn't talk about moving out yesterday. So...yeah... here we go on the adventure of death. It happens to everyone eventually. Everyone in my wife's family dies pretty young. They burn hot and burn out. I hope our trip to NYC goes okay next week. She is already building up fluids in her abdomen. She wants to go to Ireland for some reason... so we can try to do that too. Fucking hell.

She did a great job on Christine Blassey Ford.

But I don't see most of the stuff Body Language Lady describes in this video. If the sound was off, I couldn't find those moments.

I wanna know how-often Garland uses a teleprompter. If it's infrequent, then all the reactions we're seeing could-be to that novelty. Like taking an eye test.

I find it more informative to listen to the content of the words he's saying... & listen for parts which are confirmed to be lies.

Such as his indignant response-- to those who dare say that the FBI acted unprofessionally/inappropriately. There's no qualifier on that. It's not limited to "in this instance".

And so-- since we know THE FBI ABSOLUTELY DID DO inappropriate/unprofessional shit involving-Trump... then we do know He's Lying during that part.

Which gives us a reference-point to detect not-yet-confirmed lies.

It's very competently made. It feels like you're in the room with the subjects. The camera 'looks around' where your attention would naturally flow. It doesn't feel staged like reality tv.

The premise is an easy sell-- for the public television channels where the movie was originally shown: wholesome local newspapers are dying, and rural 'news deserts' are worse for it, and a lovable cantankerous colorful anachronistic dad stubbornly day-after-day refuses to quit-- he's a thorn in the side of the faceless corporate agribusiness plant in-town-- champion of the little guy.

The film stays close to the premise-- but there's juuust enough of the The Rest Of The Story shown-- to reveal the outlines of a counter-narrative. The mom & pop shops on Main Street are barely getting by. So here comes a friendly ad-sales girl to hit them up for $200 to run an ad on Wednesday & Friday. In a newspaper which tells them they are assholes if they voted for Trump. Are they getting their money's worth? Why is the champion of local news... city council meetings about pothole repair... giving himself such license to hiss generic ragefarts at Trump like every dork on Facebook. Is that an under-served niche?

The filmmakers actively-avoided letting the film become 'about Trump'... glossing-over nearly-all pro-Trump sentiment/ and the most cringey anti-Trump sentiments. Necessary, to avoid Trump eclipsing the film. But that choice basically sez "we coulda made this film any year in the last couple decades, before Trump, but we didn't, so we're just gonna pretend we did." AND watching the film now gives the viewer the benefit of hindsight: A big chunk of the story is a rosy picture of demographic replacement by illegal immigrants... working in the meat packing plant. That & everything-else are pre-Biden. What do the townsfolk think now? The film told a story worth-telling. But that story is wrapped-up & done, so the only aspects which make me curious for a sequel... are all the touchy subjects which were previously evaded.

I am reminded of interview clips I saw on YouTube... with the cast of The Waltons. The 'John-Boy' actor said the cast were butthurt when Bush Senior said in 1992 that we need "American families a lot more like the Waltons and a lot less like the Simpsons." John-Boy pointed-out that The Waltons were pro-FDR new deal Democrats, not [Rush Limbaugh/Newt Gingrich] Republicans. True enough. BUT: that was back in the 1930's. By 1992 an honest portrayal of who the who The Waltons _became_... would have admitted that fully HALF of-those who stayed true their grandparents' lifestyle... were Reagan/Bush voters.

Looks interesting. A well-made documentary really shines; tendentious or maudlin ones are unbearable.

Similar dynamic going on with our local rag. More on that later, but I gotta run.

We had five mature bald eagles at once, over a small lake near the cabin. I was on a beach towel, looking straight-up, when the first one passed directly over me. Another one was soaring higher-- then those-two revolved-upward, almost out-of-sight. A third one circled the edge of the lake, close-enough to look big. And then two small ones (but with adult colors) made some noises at each-other, at treetop height... & chased each other in circles, a few yards apart.

The state fish hatchery is a mile down the road. Next time I pass by, I'll stop & ask if eagles dive for the fish.

So... hell.

My wife has a 10cm mass in her abdomen and it is cancerous. The doctors say they don't know what kind of cancer. She has an appointment to see a specialist on August 24. So, they told her she has cancer, told her she needed to wait two weeks to get more information, and then told her to leave the hospital.

And... since she is feeling okay she decided that we will take a trip next week. In a flurry... she booked flights for her, me, and our daughters. We are off to New York city. After all, she might be dead in six months. We will spend a bunch of money and see some shows. Sounds good to me.

The way I see it, there are two possible options here. Option 1 - the cancer is slow growing and can be removed in the next few weeks and is not life threatening. Option 2 - the doctors already suspect the cancer has spread so there is no rush to treat it.... I am pretty sure it is option 2... the doctors just want to wait a few weeks to tell her she is done for.

Further, my wife doesn't like the way I love her. I will take care of her until our dying day, but she wants me to love her like I used to... when we would fuck for five hours at a stretch. She is obsessed with the fact that I don't have that kind of passion anymore. I am not sexually attracted to her now... period. She told me that she wants to move out because she doesn't want me to take care of her out of a sense of duty. My reply is that I want to take care of her and it makes me feel good to do it. I don't know. It's fucking weird. I don't think she really wants to have sex... but she wants me to want to have sex. She threatened to move out. I told her she can leave whenever she wants and I will help her move. She said that I should tell her what her budget is. My reply was that she can do whatever she wants... half our million dollars is hers... just leave if you want.

But she doesn't leave.... and she doesn't kill herself. She said several times yesterday that she wished she had killed herself on her birthday like she planned. My reply was to say she can just kill herself now if she wants. She must not really want to kill herself... but she thinks about it every day.... day after day after day. Every day she thinks about killing herself and about how I don't want to have sex with her.... day after day after day.

So... last story. Yesterday I was the host and presenter for my biggest meeting of the month for work. It includes our vice president and our customer's director. It is my big show and it is part of why I get paid. Anyway... I am in the middle of "the big meeting" when my wife texts me... and states that she has cancer. Yikes! Right in the middle of the meeting. So, I turn my microphone off for a second and sob... and then go back and carry on. No one noticed a thing... and the meeting was a perfect success. Then my boss calls me afterword and I start to cry on the fucking phone with him. Jesus. Strange day.

Taking a cue from John and switching over to bird reports for a break.

We keep a feeder outside the living room window for a group of hummingbirds that live in the yard. The feeder itself was inexpensive, under $10 at Walmart with decent construction of mostly copper and glass. It came with Hummingbird Food TM which I suppose is sugar water with red food coloring. One part sugar to four or five parts water does the same thing and is easy to prepare. The satisfaction to work/expense ratio for this is higher than anything else in my life.

Last year a cup could last several days. When it was hot I'd wind up dumping a good amount as it started fermenting. This year they're suddenly going through a cup a day, then a cup in less than a day, then two cups in a day. The past week I've regularly seen eight or more out there jockeying for position (they fight enthusiastically and constantly, more than any other animal I've ever seen). It all culminated with a female juvenile being driven inside, where she promptly discovered the skylight, passed out from heat exhaustion(?), and fell into my wife's riding boots.

We have vigilant cats, so leaving her there wasn't an option. The wife scooped her up and tried giving her some water. She'd open her eyes periodically to lap at it before going to sleep again. Maybe 15 minutes of that before recovering enough to fly away. A happy ending for now :D

That answer doesn't match the question.

The question was about the 5th Amendment. The inverse of "Trump did wrong" is "The witch hunters against Trump did wrong. it's malicious prosecution".

The only reason to bring Hunter Biden into the question... is if you think Hunter Biden and his associates have been wrongly accused by an overzealous FBI, DOJ, Special Prosecutors, FISA courts, Congressional Hearings & impeachments, & crooked Big Tech news media.


"If Trump is guilty he should face the consequences."

Ok. But if his accusers are guilty, what consequences should they face for year after year of witch hunt & show trial?
What question o you think I was trying to answer?
I think it is possible that Hunter Biden may have done something wrong, such as not paying taxes. If he is found to have broken the law he should face the same consequences as anyone else that breaks the law. Bidens are not above the law and neither should Trumps. That was my point.
As for Prosecutorial misconduct that too is against the law and should be prosecuted if they have violated the law or abused their office for political or personal reasons.
Cops and prosecutors shouldn't be above the law either.

You mean your posts? I don't remember anyone making the inference that covid vaccines were responsible for the deaths of those Toronto doctors.
Can you read? I never said you believed the earth is flat. I used it as an example of a fact as opposed to an opinion.
As for Qanon. That post doesn't mention you and wasn't directed at you.
If you can't argue intelligently or in good faith I'm not wasting any more time responding to you.

Well, since we're talking fantasy, I'll have 'em both! Red in expensive webbing, green in leather/latex.

Fuck it, I'll also have "Aliens" era Sigourney Weaver stood to the side with a moist cloth to mop my brow and yell encouragement!

Yeehaw!

Damn. Took my old lady to the hospital yesterday. She has had abdominal pain and constipation for weeks now. Docs put her on meds to move her bowels but it didn't help.

So... off to Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak MI.

They found a 10 cm mass in her abdomen. They will do a paracentesis to draw fluid this afternoon. Tomorrow is a CT scan. We will see what it is.. but... I suspect it is lady-part cancer. Her sister and mother both had lady-part cancer. Sheesh.

The dog is really unhappy. Dog misses the old lady and is walking around the house with her head down. I am still working from home because my wife hates visitors when she is in the hospital. I am just trying to get work done. Nothing I can do now.

Hillary Clinton exists solely in her own private reality, a heavily-fortified gated-community, adhering only to her own internal-logic.

One may only invoke the 5th before Congress if their testimony is 'compelled' by subpoena. Trey Gowdy did subpoena Hillary, but she refuses to accept that fact. ("I did not have sexual relations with that Miss Lewinsky.") And so, by her own twisted logic, she forfeited the right to remain silent.

He was big on document searches when it was being done on his political opponents. Fair is fair.
If Trump is guilty he should face the consequences.
If Hunter Biden is guilty same thing.
Remember, Hillary Clinton testified in front of the House for 11 hours without taking the 5th once.
Trump gave his name and spent 4 hours doing nothing but taking the 5th.
The testifying in front of the house thing was grandstanding and milking political capital. Sure it was at Clinton's expense, but prosecuting her for reals was never on the cards. All any of that was was a bunch of players of the great game, playing the game. Ultimately, that was all in fun.
