    Democratic National Committee was broadcasting propaganda film calling Ted "Leave 'Em Moist and Breathless" Kennedy a champion of women's rights at presidential convention in 2012, and Dems only just now getting around to calling out Bill Clinton for rape and skirt-chasing, so what's the rush about a little abusive bureaucracy, perjury and obstruction of justice? Give it a few decades.

    I read the Durham story first and saw their notice about phasing out comments sections, then didn't look when I read the Raleigh story. I'll put the uneven treatment down to incompetence and unwillingness to pay for staff rather than something as high-sounding as they describe. I only have a surface idea of what Disqus is all about. I read that the comments sections were "shifting to Facebook." Why would one want to go to Facebook to comment when the story is right there on ... you know... the news site? They're complaining about moderating the news site, so they must be unable to moderate Facebook AND the news site? Seems like a FB comments section would be the stankier cessspool. Every FB-eligible comments section I can think of rolled quickly downhill after opening up to "FB." Maybe it's really Disqus I'm complaining about? A shame either way. Insert "That's not how it works" meme here if appropriate ... LOL

    Amazing. I can see why the Channell 11 site wants to reduce the number of articles which have a comments section. If you read what goes on in local government, you'd naturally want to post angry comments. It's like a reflex when you're hit in the knee with a hammer. Shifting comments to Facebook is a shickenchit move. It's kind of like they've never had common sense or a budget, either. My proposal is these stories be included in corporate recruiting and regional cheerleading materials for potential transplants. Not sure a quarter million taxpayer dollars for two crap logos will deter anyone trying to escape California, but it's worth a shot.

    LOL ... I think I missed that. I'd like to get Rachel Maddow and Sean Hannity on a show together where they could go at each other's conspiracy theories and maybe inspire themselves to new ones. It would be great TV, even though it would make everyone twice as dumb twice as fast. Sean Hannity has become the media’s top conspiracy theorist How far he’s gone down the rabbit hole https://www.vox.com/2017/11/15/16649292/hannity-conspiracy-theorist-transcript-data Have only skimmed that ^^^^ so far. Saving it for later. I know it's a lot of Vox, and ordinarily I'm on a Vox-free diet, but WTH ...

    I had a scrapbook going of news clippings of the case when I was a kid. Don't ask me why. Looking back on it, it was a pretty grisly thing to be interested in. The only other thing I remember pasting in those old notebooks (black and white hard-covered "Composition" notebooks---Remember them?) was Minnesota Vikings stories and pics, and pictures of motorcycles, LOL. It's kind of amazing that with Manson all tee'd up, California picks that moment to do away with the death penalty and the U.S. Supreme Court makes the state's successful referendum to reinstate a moot point. Not sure why there was a need to commute the sentence to life with the possibility of parole. Not aware of procedural or due process issues with the trial that would interfere with letting the original sentence stand for a future "super-duper court-approved" execution. The only reason for such a move that I can think of is some requirement for the possibility of parole. That seems inappropriate after a just, clean death penalty has been handed down, particularly in this case. Once Manson's death sentence was commuted, there was no way to reinstate it. I have to believe there's some legal eagle reason that has to be so, because that doesn't make a whole lot of sense on the face of it, either. Other than taking Manson's word for it that living was harder than dying-- that he preferred to die-- the legal system failed the families, law enforcement and the justice system in this case. http://www.history.com/news/charles-manson-was-sentenced-to-death-why-wasnt-he-executed

    Those videos are embarrassing. I don't go looking for them, but they somehow appear in my line of sight every once in a while. I came across one about a month ago where the girl wasn't claiming sovereign citizenship --- she was just on something, or off in the head, or both. After refusing to identify herself, she just spiraled into a breakdown during a lot more back and forth with the cop than she reasonably should have been blessed with. He finally arrested her, and I wonder if she wound up in a padded room at some point after that. If you watch the sovereign citizens, you get the whiff of mental illness from some of them, too. Actually, I think it's a little mentally ill to whip out your camera either instinctively or on purpose to the extent it's done these days ...

    Giffords is clutching pearls over several items in the "report," which is really just a medium-long blog post by someone who can string a list together. Think 9 Things Millennials Are Ruining For Everyone and you have basically zeroed in on the idea and approximate level of intelligence of this masterwork. To continue on the topic of scary calibers (.50 is the one Giffords is going after at the moment because it is the largest not covered by the NFA, in rifles at least ) --and to keep the good music going on a Monday, here is a video brought to you by the number 50, where a 50-lb. rifle is not enough gun: "You lied to me!

    Some of the recoil effects seem to be between fairly mild and quite tolerable, some are just tolerable, and there are a few that seem to be mules. I think the video is trying to show the bullet weights increasing, but I don't know that the shots sync with the cutaways of the various bullets. I think the last shot that flips the log section up on end is definitely supposed to be the 1132 gr. bullet that the guy discusses later in the shop. If that shot was taken by the last shooter seen, I think there was probably some some damage to his dental work. (Also, I appreciate that surprise guest shooter Stan Potts took a beating but came up grinning one or two rounds earlier. :wink) I'll have to watch it again (!) to see if I can match up recoil to bullet weights shown. Fortunately, this video is now on my favorites playlist, so it won't be unpleasant work, LOL. I don't know if it's the music or the merriment involved in shooting a rifle you built yourself in WTF, but it has something goin' on ... BTW, I saw an earlier video of the first shots with this gun (at least as a prototype) a while back, and recoil was quite mild if I'm remembering properly. I'm sure they had the first test rounds loaded down, but they did start off shooting it with a string from behind a barricade. :wink I don't remember if they explained what they had cooked up to start with.

    Whoa! I can't believe it's more than a month since anyone had a pet peeve! I thought it was early for this one: Christmas parades. But no. Not all Christmas parades, mind you ... Just the ones that can't even wait until after Thanksgiving, and/or which are treated with unreasonable respect. Raleighwood had theirs today, for instance. I'm sure the insanity occurred elsewhere as well. But I'll bet the insult to American decorum and the Roman calendar elsewhere wasn't compounded by the local TV station as it was here, when the broadcast ground on through the end of the parade, which ---to the surprise of no one--climaxed with the sudden appearance of Santa and Mrs Claus. However, this decision *did* surprise everyone who wanted to watch Virginia take on undefeated Miami and score on their first possession. Because it was so important to stick with the jolly old elf and his cheering sycophants lining the streets of the capital, and then to roll several minutes of credits and commercials, the geniuses at WRAL didn't get around to this locally-important game and national upset opportunity until five and a half minutes into the first quarter. It was only by a ridiculously early Christmas miracle that we were able to catch the tail end of the touchdown replay. Meanwhile, out here in what used to be the country, the little town I'm near is very sanely delaying their Christmas parade until, well --you know--*December*, as it always has. People will come from far and wide on an appropriate Saturday to clog the crossroads for several hours while I try to not waste too much time standing in line at the post office, taking care of weekly chores. I will then celebrate all the community spirit by exiting town via the backdoor, so as to enjoy driving home the long way around. I note that somewhere along the line, the town government website began to refer to this annual travesty as the Holiday Parade, but if you talk to normal people they'll say Christmas parade. So I got that going for me, which is nice.
