Doing the right thing also means changing your party affiliation from the party on the wrong side of history.

Don't expect the Democratic Party to embrace him. Cohen's damaged goods and is scheduled to be sentenced in December on eight counts including tax fraud, false statements to a bank, and campaign finance violations. Trump and his party of deplorables will try to get everyone to believe Cohen was a Democrat when he broke the law whenever Cohen's name is brought up.

Oh yah, he's still an utter piece of shit. But he's cooperating this point.

Sure the cultist derps will believe he was a Dem all along; that isn't a sell. They'll eat anything Trump feeds them.

I personally don't want someone of his lack of character to be in my political party.

He can do the right thing by rolling over on his former boss, but that is not (IMHO) a get instant redemption free card.

That said, he cannot be stopped from either registering as a Dem, or even running for office as one, though in the latter case, the party can refuse to endorse him.

Fuck him, who cares.

Right now in GA the election is being stolen. ND same thing.

I wish I knew a peaceful, democratic way to combat that, but I cant think of it.

Bloomberg is a 45 wanna be. Bloomberg wants to run for Prez. He won't make it though. The one thing we do not need is Man (who like 45) sheds political skin and then tries to regrow it.

Bloomberg hasn't a prayer of becoming president. I do suspect that's why he switched, though, since presumably the Republican side is spoken for.

And are we finaly fucking finished with seeing Susan Collins as some sort of hero because of one vote she made because she was concerned a "yea" on the ACA repeal might cost her a vote or two, and not the asshole conservative Repubican she actually is??? We have know this since long before the Kavanaugh vote.

I'm sorry, but I do not believe she actually believes Dr. Ford was telling the truth about being assaulted but could not recognize her attacker. Remember she stated she was 100% certain, indicated no doubt about it.

Collins is either a fool or lying, but neither does her credit.

It's fine - disbelieve her, but don't pretend then that you believe her when obviously: you don't.

Senator Collins was lying to save her collective ass, but it seems to be failing. She intended to vote for Kav all along. Just as Flake intended to vote Kav, but they made the headlines they wanted.

Neither of them had any intention of making a stand, all they wanted was attention from the press.

Collins received a lucrative 6 figure check from her vote.

:arrow: Sorry, but I don't think there is any real news here. Michael Cohen is just going back to being a Democrat again. He was always a Democrat, prior to 2017. Incidentally, Jared and Ivanka have never changed their Party affiliation, which is the Democratic Party. Donald Trump, himself was a Democrat, until he decided to run for political office, which he knew he couldn't do as a Democrat.

There are plenty of assholes who are Democrats already. Rabid Ocasio-Cortez backers to whom anybody not a rabid Ocasio-Cortez backer is a DINO, to name a few. The funniest shit about Alexandria? Her constant describing of her background as "working class." :roll: She grew up in Westchester County for christ's sake. It's not Nassau County, but it's not the Bronx, either. So anyway what's a few more?

Fundamentalists


I remember a panel discussion back in the late '80's/early 90's on one of the PBS news hour shows. It was a discussion about the exploding pornography industry. The argument made for some strange bedfellows on this particular panel. I remember radical leftist feminist separatist Andrea Dworkin and Jerry Falwell joining forces to blast the porn industry. Included on the panel was Erica Jong, author of "Fear Of Flying" and one of my favorite women of all time. So Dworkin finally loses control and erupts, "WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!!! PORNOGRAPHY IS DANGEROUS!!!"

To which Erica Jong calmly replied, "No Andrea, pornography is not dangerous...zealotry is dangerous."

BTW, one story I remember from that era is that Dworkin also worked on an anti-pornography ordinance in Canada.

Guess what was the first business to be closed under that law? An LGBT bookstore.

Yes Dworkin and MacKinnon on another deceptively named "civil rights" measure. I remember it well.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antiporno ... _Ordinance :problem:

The funds terf old lesbian feminist separatists, now rebranded as radfems, are also in league with right-wing nut job conservative males again, this time over trans persons.

We saw a low-level version of it here on RFL when the kernel was running around repeating theee kinds of quasifeminist critiques designed to demonize those infamous "men in dresses in women's bathrooms." :problem: It's a particular problem in Britain, right now.

This element hasn't gone away.

BTW, speaking of the kernel - he kept asking why Warren didn't take a DNA test.

Well - guess what Col. - she did.

Elizabeth Warren releases DNA test with 'strong evidence' of Native American ancestry
https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/15/politics ... index.html

Bustamante's analysis places Warren's Native American ancestor between six and 10 generations ago, with the report estimating eight generations. "The identity of the sample donor, Elizabeth Warren, was not known to the analyst during the time the work was performed," the report says.

[snip][end]

Suddenly, every conservative will become self-appointed czars on whether the distance of that ancestry and her blood quantum are sufficient. :roll:

My bet: no, Trump will not stop calling her "Pocohontas".

They'll grow old and die.




I've noticed some roadside stop businesses around here are dealing with gendered bathrooms by closing one bathroom, turning it into a storage closet.

They change the sign on the door to all gender. And install a close it it locks latch, they keep a key chained to something large like a big plastic cup, or a horseshoe at the counter.

I find I have to stand at the door and wait, and grab that key as the person leaving the bathroom is going by. :|



On Saturday I had to wait at the door for mister nobody to finish and leave. I finally went to the counter and asked, "are you sure someone is in the bathroom? Eventually they unlocked the door and retrieved the key tied to the cup and handed it to me.

There ought to be a better way. Maybe a door latch robot.
