Regarding the Texas "rat on your neighbor" law...

…what would this do?

My vision is for every gay man in Texas and every straight Texas man who has no wife or girlfriend to post to his Facebook page “I just got back from taking my girlfriend to her abortion.”

What was the first computer you used to access email?

Mine: IBM 4361 mainframe with 3278 terminal.

Who radicalized Ashli Babbitt?

From Wikipedia:

Radicalization (or radicalisation) is the process by which an individual or group comes to adopt increasingly radical views in opposition to a political, social, or religious status quo. The ideas of society at large shape the outcomes of radicalization; for example, radical movements can originate from a broad social consensus against progressive changes in society or from a broad desire for change in society. Radicalization can result in both violent and nonviolent action - most academic literature focuses on radicalization into violent extremism (RVE).[1][2] Multiple separate pathways can promote the process of radicalization, which can be independent but are usually mutually reinforcing.[3][4]

I saw the video she released of her driving down the road screaming at a video camera. She didn't get the way she is just from watching a few Trump speeches. Nay, her radicalization was deep and long-lived. Do you think it was her time in the Air Force, or from her upbringing?

Does the Hard Right believe COVID is a parasite?

This is the only thing I can think of to suggest why both of the drugs they've chosen as The Cure For Covid are antiparasitics.

The bleach thing is different: the people who sell Miracle Mineral Solution claim it'll cure everything from autism to Zika virus, so of course they're gonna say it'll cure COVID. But the actual drugs and not the industrial bleach? They kill parasites.

Fun at the Fair

My mask and I went to the county fair this afternoon.

While there, I walked past a booth sponsored by a group that calls itself "RINO Recall."

Someone calls out from the booth, "would you like to help us recall all the RINOs in Kootenai County government?"

I said, "as long as you're replacing them with Democrats, I would."

He didn't like that very much.

Really reaching department: Josh Duggar seeks dismissal of child porn charges because Trump


Oh, you're going to love this: Josh Duggar is the oldest of Jim Bob Duggar's 19 children and has seven of his own. He was busted for allegedly possessing a massive stash of truly hideous child pornography. (The article describes one of them. I will not repeat what it said, but it is WAY the fuck out there.) He is currently attempting to get the charges dropped because Homeland Security Investigations, the agency that nailed him, was led by people Trump illegally appointed to the office.

Iron Maiden releasing new album on September 3

It's called Senjutsu. Eddie's dressed as a Samurai on the cover. It has 10 tracks, three of which are over 10 minutes long and two more over 8 minutes. There are a couple under 5 minutes, so it should get some radio airplay.

Strangely enough, I checked Maiden's upcoming concert schedule (no new dates until Summer 2022) and they're still booking Legacy of the Beast dates, not Senjutsu dates.


Boebert's latest anti-Biden tweet isn't going well


LOTS of reminders that TFG set up the pullout.

Does Samsung's ad campaign for their new flip phone make anyone else not want one?

You've seen the spots...stunningly beautiful women who spent hours assembling themselves for presentation to the world are sitting around complaining about how they don't like this phone because it draws too much attention.

And I'm like "your whole existence is designed to draw too much attention. What the heck are you complaining about?"

Advice on the next thing I should smoke

No, not weed.

On Monday afternoon I'll have a little time to turn on my Traeger and smoke a little meat. Right now it's loaded with a mix of Texas Beef and Signature Blend pellets.

Last thing I did, I bought a beef roast on Sunday night on the way home from work and put it in a marinade to get nice and flavorful for the next day's smoking...but before I could get it out and put it in the machine, I got a phone call asking me to come to the shop and do some work on my day off. So...it marinaded in worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, tabasco sauce and balsamic vinegar for two days. It was pretty damned good, actually.
