What does that entail? Aren't most of the new ultra conservative justices young? We'll be dealing with the boofer and no-notes for decades.

Those are. Just not in the abundance as the fall. And maybe not thawed everywhere.

When you are more anti Biden than anti Trump, you are effectively pro Trump.

What song should I play for my bathroom neighbors?

The work bathroom is currently a warzone, on their phone speakers people like to play music, play games at full blast, and one guy likes to chill to ambient rainforest. What song can I play to passive aggressively make it known that I don't want to listen to their tik tok feeds while I work out my demons?

Call into a teams meeting and occasionally say something (don't actually unmute).

You don't have to turn camera on. In fact almost none of my teams calls use video. That would mean we'd all have to get dressed...

It's actually a pretty good park. Was surprised at quality of rides. I'm not a coaster enthusiast but it felt like they had a big variety.

Nah, they're making everyone else redraw maps because they are too fucking lazy to pack up and move.

Yep. Doesn't even have historical significance. It's just another of those Jim Crow statues meant to oppress black people after slavery ended. Fucking NC.

Even if that's overturned they'll never prosecute him for it. He's rich and so above the law.

Nah, the army would win. We have a bunch of individuals with firearms that practice using them on the range or maybe hunting. That's a far cry from opposing an actual military. Sure the tech outpaces the army's but most people are just going to hide in their houses. The rest will be seen coming and when martial law is enacted and they go house to house seizing guns, it'll be over. It's not like they can't learn how to use modern weaponry. Most people vastly underestimate discipline and organization.

This assumes there is no modern military for this premise.

I wish we could get away from lawns entirely. I understand a back garden a bit, but why do we need 20' of space between the house and sidewalk/road? We could fit a lot more houses in there if we didn't have a useless bunch of space. Like we could have manicured parks in a lot of spaces and then a bunch of fields or forested areas where it wasn't convenient to build homes for unusable green space.

Yeah, but most people aren't trying to grow a food forest. It's unlikely you're shopping for a city or suburbia house, either. You probably want more land a bit farther out.

Also are you trying to grow fruit trees and food plants in your front yard? That's mostly what I have a problem with. Back yards/gardens make more sense for stuff like growing food, decks, pools, etc.

Different housing issue. Separate from high costs or homelessness. Just about how neighborhoods and cities are designed.

The 'Appeal to Heaven' flag evolves from Revolutionary War symbol to banner of the far right ( apnews.com )

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito is embroiled in a second flag controversy in as many weeks, this time over a banner that in recent years has come to symbolize sympathies with the Christian nationalist movement and the false claim that the 2020 presidential election was stolen....

Anything the fascists touch is tainted. People forgot about this flag for decades and now it'll be associated with treason and hate for decades longer. Anyone trying to pretend it's anything but support for insurrection is lying to you because they are too cowardly to admit they are traitors.

Neato ,
@Neato@ttrpg.network avatar

Right. It happens to symbols that aren't widely used. Fascists couldn't co-opt the Disney logo or something. Even if copyright or trademark wasn't a thing, no one would cede it.

The most common thing I can think of is the OK symbol, which people mostly didn't let them take for very long.

If you aren't moving to the bathroom, getting luggage, or doing something else that requires you to move and leave your seat: wear your seatbelt. This is why they say to keep it buckled. Unexpected turbulence of this magnitude is rare but can still happen and injure or kill people. It's also why you have to put non-handheld items away on landing: turbulence or a strong bump can send laptops and such flying into people.

This is just how it's always worked. It was just easier to convince people to believe in miracles when we didn't have explanations for everything and video cameras. The church is reaching for coincidences and calling them miracles because that's the best they can do. I'm just surprised they are still trying to make saints and not just settling for Saint Classic.

Greater Idaho movement: 13 counties in eastern Oregon have voted to secede and join Idaho ( ktvz.com )

On Tuesday, voters in Crook County passed measure 7-86, which asked voters if they support negotiations to move the Oregon/Idaho border to include Crook County in Idaho.  The measure is passing with 53% of the vote, and makes Crook County the 13th county in eastern Oregon to pass a Greater Idaho measure.

Will this change the number of electoral votes and house representative each state has? Because if not, this seems to benefit Oregon: concentrates Republicans in Idaho while lessening the impact of their vote.

@Neato@ttrpg.network avatar

It's so fucking weird anyone would want to move to Idaho.

A state isn't being formed: they're just moving the lines. So I don't think that comes into play.

Ah yeah. It was the total votes and minimums for Wyoming in Congress I was thinking of. That needs to be readjusted.

Well we've been trying that for 100 years and it turns out it doesn't work because people are easily distracted and are generally terrible at driving.

Co-sign? People do not understand what voting is and use these dramatic phrases. It's damage mitigation and it always has been. That's party politics: you almost never get your first choice. Compromise is the only way. Sometimes the compromise sucks but if the alternative is far worse, you do the grown up thing and prevent the most damage.

The Democratic National Convention, where Biden is to be formally nominated, falls after Ohio’s ballot deadline of Aug. 7. The convention will be held Aug. 19-22 in Chicago.

Since Ohio changed its certification deadline from 60 to 90 days ahead of the general election, state lawmakers have had to adjust the requirement twice, in 2012 and 2020, to accommodate candidates of both parties. Each change was only temporary.

If all the candidates aren't on the ballot, Congress should not accept their votes for president and toss the entire state out. That's ridiculous.

Pentagon says none of the aid unloaded from US pier off coast of Gaza has been delivered to broader Palestinian population ( www.cnn.com )

None of the aid that has been unloaded from the temporary pier the US constructed off the coast of Gaza  has been delivered to the broader Palestinian population, as the US works with the UN and Israel to identify safe delivery routes inside the enclave, the Pentagon said on Tuesday....

Neato ,
@Neato@ttrpg.network avatar

Wow, I wonder who could be stopping Palestinians in Gaza from getting the aid...

So not even turning towards an intersection with a train or anything complicated. Tesla can't even tell there's a 12" steel wall in front of it. Fucking pathetic.

Biden is dramatically out of touch with voters on Gaza. He may lose because of it ( www.theguardian.com )

On the issue of Gaza, Biden is dramatically out of touch with the voters he needs to win re-election. If he will not be moved by morality to stop his support of this war, he should be moved by vulgar self-interest. Gaza is not a distant foreign conflict: it is an urgent moral emergency for large swaths of voters. Biden will lose...

Neato ,
@Neato@ttrpg.network avatar

Anyone not voting for Biden because of Gaza is a fucking idiot. Trump will be 10x worse for Palestinians. Remember who moved the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. That was designed as a provocation.

There kinda are. Very privileged people who don't need to pay attention to politics because the fascists aren't ever targeting them. So they can be clueless and just see the biggest soundbites that make it past political TV. If you haven't been paying attention to the shitshow, it probably looks a lot tamer. =/

Isn't this a violation of the Logan Act?

Neato ,
@Neato@ttrpg.network avatar

It was a rare case of Trump allies traveling abroad as part of an organized delegation to meet foreign officials. It took place amid strains between Israel and the Biden administration about Israel's conduct of the war in Gaza.

Seems like it could fit the dispute criteria. They are clearly meeting with Israel in preparation for being president.
