Okay... How did THIS get fucked up today?

Here's the picture from DU's home page sidebar, subject line, "Other Governments in Space" -

However, here's the actual Video OP -

One had nothing to do with the other, but someone can somehow insert this picture.... and for what purpose?
Was it some mystery? I already "asked the administrators", which .... good luck with that one.

Home page has a separate depiction of the titled video, "other governments in space"

Why does today's sidebar featuring DU videos portray a still for that featured video with a different picture, which happens to be Bernie Sanders in front of a podium...

When, in fact, there is nothing within the actual video featured on DU upon linking the OP of this video?

Poll Shows Sanders Would Trounce Trump in General Election

If the 2016 U.S. presidential election were held today, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) would win by a landslide over GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, according to a new poll released Tuesday by Quinnipiac University.


30% of Republican primary voters nationally say they support bombing Agrabah...

...That would be the fictional country in Aladdin.

Yes, yes... it's true and the Guardian has it here: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/dec/18/republicans-are-so-bullish-on-war-that-30-percent-would-bomb-a-fictional-country

Radioactivity in Marcellus Shale Gas Wells report released December 16.

I'm sure this report needs to go to EVERY member of the General Assembly in PA. Tracy Carlucci, who is the Deputy Director, Delaware Riverkeeper Network has passed this report along these awful findings. If you haven't directed the link to your legislator, PLEASE do.

Dangerous radioactive liquids, gases, and solids are entering the environment and potentially contaminating water supplies through practices used in gas well development, storage of produced fluids, and the transport and disposal of drilling wastes. The radioactive materials are then available to be taken in by people and can increase the likelihood of cancers in those exposed.
The critique examines the failings of the TENORM Report that include:
* Inaccurate radon measurements at drilling sites
* Invalid and/or incomplete sampling for radium-226 in rock cuttings
* Invalid and/or incomplete sampling for radium-226 in wastewater
* Invalid methodology for sampling of buried drill cuttings, including closed pits at
individual well sites, sometimes located in the back yards of homes or on active
* Lack of clarity as to whether the concentrated non-recycled drilling fluids and
sludges were sampled
* No testing of stream water quality, sediments and in-stream habitats
* Lack of planning to sample fluid production pipes, feeder lines, separator and
condensate tanks where radioactive scale can build up over time

DNC is accusing Sanders campaign of improper Clinton voter data, but...

DNC: Sanders campaign improperly accessed Clinton voter data

This WaPo story is fishy, if you ask me... Read this and tell me if you don't think something's up. I put NOTHING past the DNC...
Officials with the Democratic National Committee have accused the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders of improperly accessing confidential voter information gathered by the rival campaign of Hillary Clinton, according to several party officials.

Jeff Weaver, the Vermont senator’s campaign manager, acknowledged that a low-level staffer had viewed the information but blamed a software vendor hired by the DNC for a glitch that allowed access. Weaver said one Sanders staffer was fired over the incident.


This past Saturday's "out in the street" for Bernie commentary...

I've been meeting up with a local Bernie Sanders group and have shared a few experiences here. We've mostly walked and talked among the student population, the lower income black population, and Saturday, we were in Shadyside's higher end shopping district. It was an extremely good time to see and speak to persons who were middle class or higher, young, middle aged, mostly white, I'd say, though I had some good conversations with black couples who didn't know much about Senator Sanders.

One sidewalk cafe moment when asking some diners about Bernie, a woman made a remark in a condescending manner with, "No, thank you... We're capitalists!" I paused and made sure she saw my curious face as I answered back, "That's interesting, because I am, too." I continued talking to the adjoining persons and then said, "It's interesting how many people think that a thriving economy wouldn't be primary to everyone, regardless of income." I'm pretty sure this woman was in disbelief.

What would you have said extemporaneously to a comment like that, I wonder?

The Discussionist Discussions...

I'm thinking about this weekend, when I decided to go over to DI (seldom, but I about doubled my post count past the 160 mark, now, so you can see I was trying to have conversation).

Noted: The Jury is more forgiving for snark and assholery

Noted: I can argue with conservatives about things, and then get some good links so that I know way more about case law and the second amendment

Noted: I shall return.... And, I don't think I have to wait for a DU offline situation

Finally, Noted: Lots of big breasted tee shirt ads. As a woman, I think I know who some of those assholes might be.


Tony Norman: Armed and righteous, Liberty University mocks Christ

Jerry get your gun: The president of Liberty University wants his entire student body to pack heat.

Last Friday, the president of America’s largest Christian university wasn’t tolerating any of that loose talk about turning the other cheek. Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. refused to be that kind of false prophet. After all, this is America.

No, Mr. Falwell would not ask the 110,000 students enrolled at his university (95,000 of them online) to love their enemy the way Jesus did. He would not ask them to “put away” their sword the way Jesus compelled Peter to do on the night he was arrested and dragged before authorities for a show trial and a morning execution.

“It just blows my mind when I see the president of the United States say that the answer to circumstances like is more gun control,” Mr. Falwell said. “If some of those people in that community center had what I’ve got in my back pocket right now,” Mr. Falwell said with a chuckle, reaching for his back and letting his words trail off into a swirl of applause and cheers. “Is it illegal to pull it out? I don’t know.

Smug little thug, wearing the blood of anybody but Jesus.... I think I know who should have pulled out....
