Gotta love the hypocrisy. "Law and order! But also LOCK HER UP and HANG HIM!" -- and now this.

 +
[quote]
 +
Republican legislators are [...] seriously discussing the idea of impeaching Democratic members of the Supreme Court should it strike down the gerrymandered legislative and congressional maps those same lawmakers enacted late last year.
 +
 
 +
It’s hard to overstate what a treacherous act this would be. Simply put, handing down rulings with which legislators disagree is not an offense of any kind – much less an impeachable one. Indeed, few things are better established in our system of government than the right of the judiciary – and especially the Supreme Court – to determine whether acts of the General Assembly are constitutional. To strike down unconstitutionally gerrymandered electoral maps is not just the Supreme Court’s right, but its duty.

The booster helps even more. Most vaccinated people evade infection entirely, probably in part because they also take other precautions, such as distancing and masking. Those who’ve died of covid over the past several months were almost exclusively unvaccinated. / All of this is known to nearly everyone by now — and the scientific evidence has been convincing enough for me to endure a few hours of inconvenience. Beats dying. Yet, only 62 percent of Americans are fully vaccinated, and many are rabidly opposed to getting a shot. “This is war,” I’ve heard people say on both sides of the issue.

<blockquote>
 +
It turns out there's an amusing, hoist-by-their-own-petard story to this too.[1]
 +
 
 +
Basically, the GOP tried to stack the NCSC by splitting the Dem vote -- they funded efforts to recruit more Dem candidates, then changed the rules just for 2018 to eliminate the judicial primary, so there would be one GOPer running against several Dems.
 +
 
 +
They also added partisan labels (R/D) for the judge seat, so naive GOP voters would know who to vote for.
 +
 
 +
But then the Dems coalesced around Anita Earls, and the one other Dem candidate (Chris Anglin) apparently switched parties at that point[2] -- leaving the ballot as 2 Rs vs 1 D.
 +
 
 +
...and remember, it was the the Rs who got rid of the primary, because they were hoping the lack of winnowing would favor them.
 +
 
 +
If they had succeeded, we would be looking at a win today for the gerrymandered maps, instead of the well-deserved loss we thankfully got.

* https://www.vox.com/22939038/rents-rising-home-prices-americans-moving-residential-stagnation-stuck-mobility-freedom - Just from the title and a quick skim, this seems to be promoting a narrative that ''residential stability is bad'' and ''residential stability is a cause of economic stagnation'' -- rather than the reality:
 +
** '''residential stability is good''' (more sustainable, more efficient, more mentally healthy)
 +
** '''the existence of the "housing market" creates the real-estate industry''', which actively promotes residential instability (via instability-promoting laws and via profit-driven bank loans which raise prices for everyone) and feeds off the resulting waste
 +
** '''the specific residential stability it's talking about is a ''result'' of economic chaos''': people being unable to leave even though they want to
 +
** '''people only want to leave where they currently live''' when economic conditions have declined there. Obviously they (or their parents) originally *wanted* to be there.

** 01'42" Video clip of Sowell talking about southern blacks moving north, and how this somehow has become "the authentic Black Culture, and therefore you're not to interfere with it". (I've no idea what he's talking about.)
 +
** 02'17" Presumably as evidence of this, a series of short clips are played: Kamala Harris, AOC, Hilary Clinton, Noam Chomsky. Admittedly the Harris and especially Clinton clips are a bit cringey.
 +
** 02'45" Newer interview with Sowell by some middle-aged white guy (call him MAWG for now). MAWG paraphrases Sowell as arguing that the idea of Black Standard English is holding black people back; Sowell agrees.

This does illustrate some interesting wrinkles to the question, anyway.

 +
<blockquote>
 +
FYI There us probably not a crime wave happening.
 +
The supposed increases in crime only appear to be huge or even there, because 2021 crime figures are being compared to 2020’s depressed crime figures.
 +
 
 +
According the FBI’s annual report of crime statistics. in 2020 nationwide, compared with 2019, violent crime increased by 5.6%, burglaries dropped 7.4 percent, larceny-thefts decreased 10.6 percent, while motor vehicle thefts rose 11.8 percent.
 +
 
 +
2021 not yet being ended it is no surprise that the FBI has not yet released final figures for 2021.
 +
 
 +
ALL the reports of increased crime are, according to the FBI and multiple media outlets “preliminary data from non-federal sources.”
 +
 
 +
I will wait until the real figures are released before I believe these inflammatory reports from outlets with a political ax to grind.
 +
</blockquote>
 +
The responses kinda show that conservoids don't know how to dig down and see who's telling the truth (but I didn't spend much time reading them).

Republicans literally have a 60-page memo containing misleading talking points intended to get them on fox news and portray democrats as wanting to "abolish all immigration enforcement"
 +
 
 +
So when I say republican talking points are disingenuous I'm being generous
 +
 
 +
Meanwhile our conservative friends and neighbors hear nothing but these talking points and believe - truly believe - that democrats want to "encourage illegal immigration"
 +

Because the people they trust are literally and explicitly and cynically and most importantly purposefully telling them those lies.

These include the overall cost and the fact that forgiveness does not directly address the core issue of rising college costs.}} He's actually correct about that... but it doesn't mean we shouldn't do this now, however. An inadequate bandage is better than saying "no, we need to wait for the surgery in 3 weeks before we do anything."

 +
** What I see happening around here is that the land becomes more valuable than the housing built on it, so speculators buy it up and remodel or rebuild for a more upscale market.
 +
** This process is assisted by property taxes that are based on "market valuation" of surrounding properties -- so even if you have no intention of ever selling, your property taxes keep going up and you may end up being *forced* to sell.
 +
** Property taxes should be (a) income-scaled and/or (b) based on last sale (or cost of construction, if never sold). The current system just promotes transience and unaffordability.

** This likely removes oversight of the FDA over manufacturing facilities. And while we’ve underfunded them long term and mostly stopped their inspections during the pandemic, they’re the ones who found the bacteria in the Abbott plant which required them to shut down and clean, and the Jif contamination, and more. Removing them or inhibiting their role for imported food also increases our risks, and/or leaves us to rely on their peer organizations in other countries.
 +
** Also, it moves manufacturing overseas and reduces US jobs. At a time when we’re screaming about how we’ve sent too much of our manufacturing overseas and it’s gutted our supply chain.

The Center for Economic Accountability, a 3-year-old nonprofit based in Michigan that says it approaches topics 'from a free-market, limited-government "classical liberal" perspective,' called out the incentives package as going 'further than any other ... to exemplify the massive wastefulness and ineffectiveness of state government subsidy programs.'

North Carolina officials from multiple agencies had engaged with Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) for years about a site in RTP. Talks resumed this past spring$ and in April the project – code named "Project Bear" – was announced as a huge win$ for the Triangle and the state.

Apple committed to developing a 3,000-job campus on 281 acres the company controls.

The campus and engineering hub will focus on machine learning, artificial intelligence and software engineering. The high-paying jobs – with average annual salaries of at least $187,000, according to Apple – come at a cost, however. To ensure a win over Ohio, North Carolina put forward its biggest-ever incentives package.

[...]

Earlier this year Michael Farren, an economist with the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, also called the sum exorbitant.

Farren said subsidies – even those in the form of reimbursements – are not free money, and that the majority of incentives are unnecessary, pointing to research that estimates just one out of every eight subsidies is actually responsible for changing a company's decision on where to locate.

'And in situations where it does cause a company to change where it locates, it causes the company to choose a less efficient spot for production,' Farren said.

I keep finding myself kind of in agreement, at least on an emotional level, with MTG's "national divorce" idea. It would be a huge mess even if it was done right, and they probably won't want to do it in any way that's even remotely fair, and then when it's done they'll blame us for the whole thing and especially the negative consequences, but still -- I can see the appeal.

We just want very different things. They want a deeply hierarchical society with winners and losers and little value placed on individuals for their own sake -- basically an authoritarian / r-selection society -- where as we want, like, the exact opposite...

...and I do like the idea of allowing people to choose which type of society they'd prefer to live in -- see https://instagov.com/wiki/Opt-in_market_socialism -- but there are huge logistical issues to work out in doing this... and I don't think the kindergartners whose views I'm trying to accommodate have the first clue about any of that.

As I've said many times, they're kind of proving that democratic republicanism doesn't work in the information age. We need a better system if we want to keep moving towards an egalitarian/horizontalist society.

A lawyer of the Yekaterinburg LGBT Center was reported on gay propaganda because of the mention of "hospitable administrators, free tea and snacks"

In Yekaterinburg, two protocols were drawn up against the lawyer of the Resource Center for LGBT people, Anna Plyusnina, on the promotion of non-traditional sexual relations among minors (part 2 of article 6.21 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation). Plyusnina told about this on Facebook.

The protocols for the lawyer were drawn up on December 29, 2021. According to a copy of one of them, Plyusnina was accused of creating a website for the Queer Line of Yekaterinburg, available "for viewing by an indefinite circle of people, including those who have not reached the age of majority," and published information on events for people of "non-traditional sexual orientation" ... Thus, according to the police, the lawyer "carried out" gay propaganda.

It's a sign of government competence that they were able to get so much of it completed in *spite* of Trump's interference. This really gives the lie to the people who love to say that government can't do anything, government is inefficient, government is the problem, etc.

Also, it's deeply troubling that a sitting president would try to interfere with the census -- and that he would be able to do so. No executive should have that much power, GOP or Dem.

The census is an essential institution of our representative democracy; protecting it should be a priority for anyone who identifies as conservative.

Gotta love the hypocrisy. "Law and order! But also LOCK HER UP and HANG HIM!" -- and now this.

[quote] Republican legislators are [...] seriously discussing the idea of impeaching Democratic members of the Supreme Court should it strike down the gerrymandered legislative and congressional maps those same lawmakers enacted late last year.

It’s hard to overstate what a treacherous act this would be. Simply put, handing down rulings with which legislators disagree is not an offense of any kind – much less an impeachable one. Indeed, few things are better established in our system of government than the right of the judiciary – and especially the Supreme Court – to determine whether acts of the General Assembly are constitutional. To strike down unconstitutionally gerrymandered electoral maps is not just the Supreme Court’s right, but its duty. [/quote]

It turns out there's an amusing, hoist-by-their-own-petard story to this too.[1]

Basically, the GOP tried to stack the NCSC by splitting the Dem vote -- they funded efforts to recruit more Dem candidates, then changed the rules just for 2018 to eliminate the judicial primary, so there would be one GOPer running against several Dems.

They also added partisan labels (R/D) for the judge seat, so naive GOP voters would know who to vote for.

But then the Dems coalesced around Anita Earls, and the one other Dem candidate (Chris Anglin) apparently switched parties at that point[2] -- leaving the ballot as 2 Rs vs 1 D.

...and remember, it was the the Rs who got rid of the primary, because they were hoping the lack of winnowing would favor them.

If they had succeeded, we would be looking at a win today for the gerrymandered maps, instead of the well-deserved loss we thankfully got.

FYI There us probably not a crime wave happening. The supposed increases in crime only appear to be huge or even there, because 2021 crime figures are being compared to 2020’s depressed crime figures.

According the FBI’s annual report of crime statistics. in 2020 nationwide, compared with 2019, violent crime increased by 5.6%, burglaries dropped 7.4 percent, larceny-thefts decreased 10.6 percent, while motor vehicle thefts rose 11.8 percent.

2021 not yet being ended it is no surprise that the FBI has not yet released final figures for 2021.

ALL the reports of increased crime are, according to the FBI and multiple media outlets “preliminary data from non-federal sources.”

I will wait until the real figures are released before I believe these inflammatory reports from outlets with a political ax to grind.

The responses kinda show that conservoids don't know how to dig down and see who's telling the truth (but I didn't spend much time reading them).

I'm not sure exactly what these are supposed to prove, but they are from a conservoid:

interesting how it disappeared but that’s OK here it is again.

Undercover videos

Border crisis issues

Hunter Biden and family

Republicans literally have a 60-page memo containing misleading talking points intended to get them on fox news and portray democrats as wanting to "abolish all immigration enforcement"

So when I say republican talking points are disingenuous I'm being generous

Meanwhile our conservative friends and neighbors hear nothing but these talking points and believe - truly believe - that democrats want to "encourage illegal immigration"

Because the people they trust are literally and explicitly and cynically and most importantly purposefully telling them those lies.
