  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    LAvery @ 1215: I don't understand what argument you and Greg are making here. Greg suggested (@1020), if I understand right, that it might be especially bad for Trump if the impeachment trial was delayed until after the election. But...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Robert Prior @ 1164: Question to the academics/scientists here: Is this really part of your typical day at a top-tier academic institution? There was that observatory in New Mexico the FBI closed… Apparently a janitor at the site was suspected...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Elderly Cynic @ 1119: As usual, you are lying./i> Charlie, I believe this deserves a yellow card, if not a red one....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Troutwaxer @ 1097: Or consider that we are already believing that we can "survive" a major man made disaster in global warming, and that a large part of the indifference western society is on the basis that it is primarily...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Square Leg @ 1089: When did NATO promise not to expand eastwards? Who did they make this promise to? What treaty did they make this promise in? What where the exact words used? Who made the promise? (The NATO Secretary...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    LAvery @ 1088: The "prosperity gospel" is in EXACT diametrical opposition to the central text of christianity, the "Sermon on the Mount"? There is much in the Sermon on the Mount that most Christians reject in practice, even if they...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Troutwaxer @ 1064: "There's got to be a pony in here somewhere!" Yeah. It keeps saying "Nay." I took it as a comment on how deep the manure is getting. There's so much horse-shit around here, I just know I'm...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    JamesPadraicR @ 1024: But Cohen wrote something like 70 verses for that song, and would pick and choose which to sing depending on his mood. Possibly something there that would work, but all anybody seems to sing is the Buckley...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    LAvery @ 1021: So he's got to win by any means in 2020 & even that might not save him. [ See below ] Especially if the "Impeachment" hearings are dragged out, so that it hasn't actually come before the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    MSB @ 1013: Another example that springs to mind is Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". I always find it amusing to hear it in church, mistaken for a pious hymn to The Lord Almighty or even to Holy Matrimony, when the text...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    _Moz_ @ 1002: I took the russian bot's comments to be making parallels between the western powers imposition of civilisation on other places, quite possibly including the recent democratisation of Afghanistan and the freeing of Iraq. While I'm sure the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    SFReader @ 997: Re: 'Your postings are hate speech that is being used by people to incite a pogrom against Russians, ...' Bear in mind that for some people ANY criticism of Russian regimes, past or present, will not be...
  • Commented on Creative writing challenge!
    I'm no good at creative writing. My prose is stilted & pedantic and I can't write dialog for shit. OTOH, the part about fiction having to be more believable than reality is dead easy when you have reality like this:...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    SFReader @ 965: Re: 'What Stalin did was bad enough without calling it genocide.' Just calling a spade, a spade. Based on evidence presented to and accepted by Russian courts since, it's in character and likely. Got to wondering ......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Damian @ 935: I used to cover it myself, and I always had the impression my version was well liked by the people around. I probably wouldn’t do it now, if the opportunity to do a covers gig came up,...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    whitroth @ 898: Heh, heh. heh. "Draft Dodger Rag", Phil Ochs."Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die Rag", Country Joe and the Fish Both great songs, but neither of them has the flavor of anti-war feeling from the veteran's point of...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    _Moz_ @ 818: whether anyone likes it or not the Crimeans clearly prefer Russia to Ukraine. I'm sure you meant to put "surviving" in there somewhere. There's also problems around the exact choice that was put to them, because outside...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Robert van der Heide @ 815: “the USA can and will interfere in everyone else's elections, but nobody else can even express an opinion about American elections...” You’re a bit out of date. As of 2016, foreign interference is permissible...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Damian @ 806: “ Self-determination of nations is a principle, whether you are talking about Scotland, Catalonia, or even Crimea, where whether anyone likes it or not the Crimeans clearly prefer Russia to Ukraine.” For various reasons, not necessarily directly...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    palesius @ 797: While I would be pleasantly surprised if impeachment were successful, my more realistic hope is that the airing of all this dirty laundry in the run up to the election will have a deleterious effect on the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    LAvery @ 749: In 2002 there was a change in the law that allowed the DoD's DNA database to be searched for investigative matches and I don't know if the database was just merged with CODIS or was kept separate....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Trump says Boris Johnson's Brexit plan means the US 'can’t make a trade deal with the UK' Trump was apparently interviewed by Nigel Farage on a UK "talk radio" station. How does this affect Bozo & Brexit? https://www.lbc.co.uk/radio/presenters/nigel-farage/world-exclusive-interview-with-president-trump/ In the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    LAvery @ 744: I know there was a change in the law in 2002 (?) that allowed the DoD's DNA database to be searched for criminal investigations It is significant that the law, as you quoted it, only allows searching...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Allen Thomson @ 731: For example, a soldier could submit a swab, and the DNA would only get read if there was a need to ID the soldier's body or if they were suspected of a crime that had DNA...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    palesius @ 728: Asheville, the last outpost of civilization in the west (of North Carolina). Not to be confused with Nashville, although it was somewhat comical when I was flying home and the adjacent gate had a flight to Nashville...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    whitroth @ 719: Is this the second or the third time the courts said NO? I *think* this time, the courts get to decide, and good deal. I think it's maybe the fourth time - Federal Court for racial gerrymandering;...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Allen Thomson @ 716: I think the DoD destroys the military service members DNA samples after their ETS n the current state of the art, are physical samples needed for matching, vs the data obtained by sequencing (or whatever it's...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Lars @ 692: A serious question for people across the big pond: People are saying that the economy is good under Trump, but USA has a 1 trillion budget deficit for 2019 alone. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/10/25/us-deficit-hit-billion-marking-nearly-percent-increase-during-trump-era/ It's not as awfully bad as...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    LAvery @ 689: I have to wonder at what point the judge is going to draw a line in the sand, as we are running out of time. I seem to remember that in the other NC redistricting case, the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Allen Thomson @ 686: "So then, they executed him *after* they'd already taken him prisoner?" He was in US custody for most of 2004. It would not be totally astonishing if a DNA sample were obtained during routine medical care...
