1/21 marchers, memorize the phone number of someone who can bail you out of jail

I hate to have to say this, but I think our un-American soon-to-be temporary president will try to have anyone marching against him arrested and put in jail. If they do that to you, the first thing they'll do is seize your cell phone. If you don't have the phone number of at least one reliable person who can come get you out of jail memorized, you're screwed.

Folks, you knew this was coming


They sell urinal mats with all the features a good urinal mat should have: fresh lemon scent, "poetic" Chinese manufacture, and a full-color, full-bleed, "horrific" picture of Donald Trump's ugly face. $12 for one, or a 10-pack for $60 in case you want to leave them in public restrooms...

If you got elected president, what would you want to be sworn in on?

Most presidents have been sworn in on the Bible. Trump, if DU is to be believed, will swear his oath on a tattered copy of The Art of the Deal. What book would YOU like to be sworn in on?

I would be sworn in on The Constitution.

Idaho fundamentalists attempt to get abortion declared First Degree Murder


"What we're asking Idaho to do is make abortion illegal by its statute and disregard the federal court's opinion (in Roe v. Wade in 1973 that established a nationwide right to abortion)," said Scott Herndon, a homebuilder from Sagle who said he's among about 25 people who organized the proposal.


"In circulating the petition, we get to declare that the value of human life is from conception to natural death and it is because we are created by an almighty and loving God who made us in His own image," Herndon wrote in a letter to churches. "It is also our hope that we truly do abolish abortion here in Idaho and finally establish justice for the preborn.

"If a woman faces the very real consequences of a first-degree murder penalty, we are confident it will act as a deterrent to abortion."

I know these people, and when they want abortion banned, they want it banned in ALL circumstances. Pregnant woman gets in a car crash and won't survive unless the fetus is removed? Sorry dude, if that happens the doctor, all the attending medical staff, and the woman will all be tried for first-degree murder.

The note I sent to the National Archives and Records Administration about Trump tweets

In http://www.democraticunderground.com/10028403414 I pointed out that Trump's tweets will be Public Records that'll need to be retained. This is the letter I sent this morning to the NARA asking that it be done:

Many government officials communicate with the public, and probably with other government officials, via Internet-based social media accounts. The president-elect, Donald Trump, is famous for his heavy use of Twitter. If tweets, Facebook posts and other social media contacts made in the course of an official's public duties are not currently considered "public records" subject to records retention law, they should be.

The easiest way to stifle the mangled apricot hellbeast

Simply get the National Archivist to declare social media posts - specifically, tweets - made by Members of Congress and Administration officials to include the president as public records subject to retention requirements.

They have nothing to lose: Anyone who would boycott a band because they played at Trump's inauguration wouldn't listen to any of these guys anyway.

And no, they are NOT going to pick Ted Nugent. They figured out what "Cat Scratch Fever" is actually about, and there's too much of a chance he'll break out in a rousing rendition of "Kiss My Ass."

(Today's war story: when I was at Fort Drum I bought a really sweet black kitten. Two weeks later there was a lump in my groin, so I went to TMC to get it looked at.
"You have cat scratch fever."
'Hang on for a second. That's an actual disease?')

The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a doctor with quick reflexes

Or, Never attempt to rob a clinic that's fifty feet from the sheriff's office.

No link because the paper this came from invented the paywall, but anyway...

According to one of the papers I work on, Travis James Harpole, 45, resident of St. Maries, ID, made an appointment for the town's medical clinic that absolutely HAD to be with a specific doctor. Come his appointment time, Harpole was taken into a treatment room. When the doctor arrived, Harpole told him: you are going to fill all my prescriptions and give me an injection of Dilaudid right now or there will be consequences for all the doctors here." The clinic in St. Maries has no Dilaudid. The doctor told him, no prescriptions and no shot.

Harpole pulled a loaded .40-caliber pistol out and tried to aim it. Before he could, the doctor grabbed his wrist, stepped behind Harpole, pulled Harpole's gun to his body so he couldn't aim it, and got another nurse to help restrain him until he dropped the gun and the cops showed up. Harpole told the doctor that when he got out of jail, he was going straight to the doctor's house to "take him to hell with him and burn the home down." Don't worry, that won't be for a while: Harpole was charged with aggravated battery, attempted robbery with a firearms enhancement, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He faces 40 years in the state pen.
