After Pompeo’s Bullying, Trump Signals a Renewed Push to Defund NPR

"After a conservative radio host questioned the mere existence of NPR, President Trump confirmed that notion, writing, 'A very good question!'"

"Mark Levin, a bomb-throwing Trump sycophant, who is both a conservative radio and Fox News host, tweeted out an anti-NPR statement in the aftermath of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s ornery interview with an NPR national security reporter on Friday. The president took Levin’s tweet as an opportunity to champion a cause that he’s pushed for in the past, the defunding of NPR."

Let's defund Presidential pity party trips and fund NPR.

En fait suffit de savoir quoi leur faire manger pour qu'il se lèche la gueule ensuite :-) Une chatte que je gardais se léchait comme ça après avoir manger du thon en canne qu'elle adorait. Pour 2 chat en même temps faut aussi de la chance pour qu'ils soient syncro :-)

I strongly disagree with pretty much everything said by supporters quoted in that article (if not directly than at least in the principle that Trump is the answer to their complaint rather than simply making their complaint worse). But that's not the point of the article. The point is to hear what the talking-points are (and indeed - I've heard these talking points in Conservative talk radio). And be prepared to point out how they fail in the rare case that someone who believes them is willing to listen.

Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez hit back at JPMorgan CEO over comments on socialism: 'That's funny'

"Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) each took shots at Jamie Dimon this week after the JPMorgan Chase CEO derided socialism as something that leads to 'eroding society'."

"Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez, two self-described Democratic socialists, pointed to the $700 billion Wall Street bank bailout lawmakers passed in response to the 2008 financial crisis to argue that Dimon’s stance was hypocritical."

I'm with the Berners here of course. If it were up to me, I'd go much further than anyone has mentioned. 100% tax income sharing above 1 billion.
@UnclePirate (Stan McCann) - Heck with that! I'd say 100% "income sharing" (re-investing back into the community) about $500 million. Like Bernie says, "Billionaires should not exist."

Encroaching GOP fascism alert.

Kentucky Lawmaker Wants To Give Police the Power to Detain People Who Don't Answer Their Questions

"A Kentucky lawmaker wants to grant police in his state the power to detain a person for two hours if he or she declines to offer up identification or answer an officer's questions while they're investigating possible criminal activity. Lawyers? Miranda warnings? Forget about them."

"The bill was introduced by state Sen. Stephen Meredith (R–Leitchfield), and civil rights lawyers are warning that it could open a big, nasty, easily abusable, unconstitutional can of worms."

"The bill states that the person who is being detained by police in this process is not considered under arrest, which appears to be a mechanism to try to keep a person from demanding a lawyer. It could also get people to incriminate themselves by making them answer police questions or face temporary detention."

This is who and what the GOP fundamentally is. They have been hating on American ideals for decades, at least.

Anyone that says otherwise is either deeply ignorant, feigning ignorance, or themselves part of the GOP.

Diaspora Client Example

This is a continuation on my "couple of days" challenge I'm doing since I have time to kill waiting for replies/rejections to job applications. I skipped Friday because a friend took me out skiing, eating and then I napped. Picked things up on Saturday and have been puttering today.

I need to figure out how to install and set up a development version of a *diaspora pod locally so I can learn how the OpenID + OAuth stuff works. Until then though I've fleshed out a simple UI using Qt and QML:

Background Info:

https://github.com/rahealy/diaspora_client_example

“With the release of the new HTTPS/JSON based diaspora API the author decided as a personal challenge to see how much of a simple client could be written using QTQuick and QML in the span of 1 day, 2 days, and so on.”

I’m going to see how much time it takes to install and configure the various dependencies before starting the clock officially.

So where is the API documented?

Fancy getting to the age of 72 before realising that you don't get what other people call pain! 😮

I remember reading more than once that most people with that condition die young, as they don't realise they've been seriously injured, and many are unwittingly self-destructive as children, doing crazy, dangerous things.

I found this, from Rebecca Sharrock, fascinating:

"I even remember dreams... When I had my first at eight months it was quite a shock."

Wow - I guess having a first dream at around that age might be the same, or similar for all of us, and the shock, too. I now wish that I could remember the shock of having a dream at eight months, just so that I could put this not-knowing to rest 😁
The comments are very interesting, too.

Kobe Was 'More Than An Athlete': The Sports World Mourns A Basketball Legend





The retired Los Angeles Lakers star died at age 41 in a plane crash on Sunday. Former teammates, peers and other sports legends expressed their grief and shock on social media.

"The US film industry may have generated revenues somewhere in the region of $40 billion last year, but it seems Hollywood still has plenty of work to do if it wants to compete with that most hallowed of American institutions: the public library."

"Yes, according to a recent Gallup poll (the first such survey since 2001), visiting the local library remains by far the most common cultural activity Americans engage in."

#Libraries #reading
In 2019, more Americans went to the library than to the movies. Yes, really.

most encouraging indeed! :)

The #banksters are scared. They are realizing that the public is waking up to their greed and excesses...

Bank of America CEO: 'Don't challenge capitalism'

"n a new interview from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Bank of America (BAC) CEO Brian Moynihan credited innovation and a 'capitalist spirit' in the U.S. with powering the country’s longest economic expansion in history."

"'The U.S. economy just has a way of grinding through, because that innovation, the capital that's there, the capitalist spirit ... it works better than any economy in the world', Moynihan told Yahoo Finance’s editor-in-chief, Andy Serwer, this week. 'That's one of the things we're trying to get everybody to understand, is you can be capitalist and ... and make progress for society. But don't challenge capitalism'."

"Moynihan’s praise of capitalism comes amid increased attention on democratic socialism, a political theory favored by Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, which focuses on empowering workers. But he declined to tell Serwer whether his remark about capitalism was a 'nod' to Sanders or to his fellow candidate, Elizabeth Warren, who’s sometimes referred to as a socialist though she denies being one."

It seems that financial liberty is the capitalistically correct term for financial freefall after being financially defenestrated at 30,000 feet.

Welcome to #CheckIn for Sunday January 26


Here’s where you can continue the topic from yesterday, send a wave, give brief update or take part in daily thread.

All of us have a mental picture of ourselves though many of us don't recognize it until there is a mismatch. Sometimes it can be as simple as looking down and thinking your feet look big, other times it's a permanent physical change from pregnancy or aging or something similar. For a long time seeing myself with white hair have in pictures felt wrong-ish. Have you “not recognized” yourself in a reflection? Were you pleasantly surprised?

When I saw this picture I was surprised to see I had 6 PACK ABS!!!!! (13 years ago-not any more)

What is #CHECKIN?
It’s a longstanding daily tradition started by Lawrence (LD) Williams on g+. Peeps throughout the world check in to mingle. It’s been likened to what folks do around a water cooler, on a front porch or at a cafe-bar, but online. If pressed for time just wave (like) as you run/fly/swim by. You’ll always be seen and appreciated. #CheckIn is a daily post-thread where regulars and visitors alike come to chat, as the sun travels through all time zones

When consumer G+'s sun set, the original checkin (hosted by LD) seamlessly reappeared at MeWe. Pluspora’s checkin also began not long after. #CheckIn is a convenient neighbourhood place where regulars and visitors alike know they can go to chat with familiar friends or with friends they haven’t met yet, as the sun travels through all time zones.

Pluspora CheckIn was initially set up by Su Ann Lim with LD Williams’s help. Starting August 2019, Pluspora #CheckIn is now hosted by a round robin team:How to get included in the daily #CheckIn invitation? Just jump in and comment/like.
How to get uninvited? Let us know via comment or direct message.


IMPORTANT:
To continue to get notifications regardless of rotation, please follow all the current team members.
If by any chance you do not see the day’s #CheckIn post in your notifications/stream, just search #CheckIn. It is a daily forum. There is a new post every day.
