Lauren Weinstein381,437*Hangout On Air: Discussing Congress Without Obscenities* - As of 1 PM PDT, the U.S. Senate leadership has supposedly reached a very short term deal to end the federal government shutdown and temporarily raise the debt ceiling. The fate of this package in the House is still decidedly unclear. Regardless of what Congress does right now, we're going to be in the same mess again likely in a matter of weeks or months. Let's _Discuss Congress Without Obscenities_ this evening. What's _really_ going on?  Is the GOP still even really a _political party_ any more? If not, _what are they?_  And _can we even discuss this without the constant use of invectives?_  Let's at least try. This HOA is currently scheduled for 7:30 PM PDT this evening. It is subject to change or cancellation as events warrant.  Thanks!Hangout On Air: Discussing Congress Without Obscenities2013-10-17 04:30:0012

GOP research on Bernie Sanders. If you really think independents will vote for Bernie in sufficient numbers to win a general election in the electoral college, you've been smoking too much Bernie Weed. And the GOP propaganda machine is just getting started on him. Remember, they were able to crush George McGovern, who was much less to the left -- by painting him as a left-wing radical! The result: PRESIDENT RICHARD NIXON.

Watching The Heavy Water War (2015) episode 1 on Netflix. German with English subs. Very well done. Speaking of heavy water ... One of my favorite bits in Hogan's Heroes (1965) is from the episode Go Light on the Heavy Water (for the record, episode titles for the series were not shown to audiences at the time). In this episode, Colonel Klink has been secretly drinking heavy water being stored at the camp, under the mistaken impression (thanks to Hogan's plot) that it had health giving ("youth potion") qualities. This ultimately leads to the following exchange between Klink and another German officer:

KLINK
Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI used to go to that spa in Norway for that same water. It does wonders for you.

MUELLER
(through clenched teeth) Colonel Klink, somebody is making a fool of you.

KLINK
What do you mean?

MUELLER
(in a very low stage whisper) This water is for use in nuclear experiments. It is known as "heavy" water.

KLINK
(gasps, clutching his throat as if poisoned) I drank some of that water. Will I die from it?

MUELLER
Only if Berlin finds out.

Crack in the World - One of my favorite cheesy sci-fi films, from 1965. This is full and legit, from Paramount on YouTube for free. Sling it over to the big screen, nuke some popcorn, and enjoy. Just keep in mind that when this film was written, science was right on the cusp of acceptance of continental drift theories. And anyway, it has a very dynamic score!

It's sad but true. Bernie is the misogynist trolls' candidate of choice, and his own campaign tactics and hypocrisy are feeding the trolls. // But Mr. Clinton’s most pointed remarks may have been when he took aim at Sanders supporters who, he said, use misogynistic language in attacking Mrs. Clinton. He told the story of a female “progressive” blogger who defended Mrs. Clinton online through a pseudonym because, he said, the vitriol from Mr. Sanders’s backers was so unrelenting. “She and other people who have gone online to defend Hillary, to explain why they supported her, have been subject to vicious trolling and attacks that are literally too profane often, not to mention sexist, to repeat.” Mr. Clinton, growing more demonstrative, added that the liberal journalist Joan Walsh had faced what he called “unbelievable personal attacks” for writing positively about Mrs. Clinton.//... more »

Dear Chrome Team. I love the ability to stop obnoxious audio by clicking on a tab's speaker icon. It would be even more keen and super nifty if:

1) A tab playing audio could be highlighted in a manner making it easier to locate among many narrow tabs, and ...

2) If it were possible to designate in a "sticky" way that given sites should not be permitted to play audio by default.

Thank you Chrome Team.

// Bernie Sanders complained on the campaign trail Friday that dialing for dollars "affects your entire being." What he didn't mention: The Vermont senator and presidential candidate is a prolific fundraiser himself and has regularly benefited from the Democratic Party apparatus. In recent years, Sanders has been billed as one of the hosts for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee's retreats for the "Majority Trust" -- an elite group of top donors who give more than $30,000 per year -- at Martha's Vineyard in the summer and Palm Beach, Florida, in the winter. CNN has obtained invitations that listed Sanders as a host for at least one Majority Trust event in each year since 2011. //

GOOGLE SUPPORT FAIL - I spent over two hours this morning remotely and on the phone trying to help someone with their Chromebox after they suddenly became locked out of Google. I ultimately got it squared away, but they never could have by themselves, and the Google help docs and forums were useless to them -- they didn't understand the terminology in use and were going in circles, getting in deeper and deeper trouble with every attempt to help themselves. As an industry, we are still miserably failing non-techie users whom we have encouraged to depend on these systems for so much of their lives, much as they would on refrigerators and toasters. THIS IS OUR FAULT, NOT THEIR FAULT!

Protecting animals via horrible old laws: I've been having a public argument here on G+ about the reality of politics in 2016 vs. incremental attempts at ending the abuse of animals. It involves a conservative state where an old (and now legally unenforceable when it comes to humans) sodomy law was cleverly used by a legislator trying to move the state toward broad animal protection legislation, by initially adding language preventing the sodomy of (non-human) animals. My correspondent is upset. They would apparently prefer that no law be passed now to address this narrow area, if the only way to pass it is to tie it to an obnoxious old sodomy law (even though that horrific old law cannot be applied to humans any more, due to court decisions).

Protecting animals via horrible old laws: I've been having a public argument here on G+ about the reality of politics in 2016 vs. incremental attempts at ending the abuse of animals. It involves a conservative state where an old (and now legally unenforceable when it comes to humans) sodomy law was cleverly used by a legislator trying to move the state toward broad animal protection legislation, by initially adding language preventing the sodomy of (non-human) animals. My correspondent is upset. They would apparently prefer that no law be passed now to address this narrow area, if the only way to pass it is to tie it to an obnoxious old sodomy law (even though that horrific old law cannot be applied to humans any more, due to court decisions).

Ironically, I'm sure that we both want strong animal abuse laws! This one is weak and limited at best. But if you pay attention to the history of this legislation and its author, you learn that it's explicitly designed to be a "camel's nose under the tent" to demonstrate to all the legislators who have long opposed any animal rights legislation that the sky won't fall in when animals are protected by law. The intention is to move onward to much more substantial and encompassing animal rights legislation. But there was no way there to do that initially on a stand-alone basis. So the author -- who knows the state and its legislature very, very well -- had essentially a genius stroke.

He knew the most of those other legislators have no interest politically in revisting their old and now unenforceable old sodomy laws -- which are largely identical to the ones still on the books in various states -- all just words without force now. So he used that old text as a hook to get the initial animal right legislation in. When the naysayers who were even opposed to that simple and basic animal abuse legislation are proven wrong about its negative impact, he'll be able to move onward to much more substantive, standalone legislation.

When you're trying to move red state legislatures away from the dark side, it can only be accomplished incrementally, almost surreptitiously. Otherwise they clamp down and nothing good happens at all.

I've been a massive animal rights supporter for decades, but I am also as a result very cognizant of the political realities of getting the good stuff done. Obviously all those putrid old sodomy laws and such should be cleared from the books of every state, just like all the racist law clauses that are widespread (and also now unenforceable). But in the reality of a country where most state governments are controlled by evil right-wing legislatures and governors, that's just not near the front of the "what can we really get done right now" queue. But some incremental changes to help some animals, and lay the groundwork for much broader legislation to do far more, is practical, and is doable -- as in this case___

Those of us who opposed the billions spent on expensive subways and train lines predicted this all along. You didn't need to study urban geography (which I actually did for a time at UCLA) to realize that the southern California residential/work topology in general -- and here in L.A. in particular -- is so widely dispersed and decentralized as to render mass transit of this sort highly problematic.

The wonderful "Control Voice" (Vic Perrin) intro monologue to one of the two original Outer Limits episodes written by Harlan Ellison (1964). That's the great character actor Michael Ansara in the role of a soldier from the future.

I can't emphasize this enough. NOW PAY DAMNED ATTENTION TO THIS, PLEASE. The LAST thing you should do if you feel someone is in distress is call the cops and expect them to HELP. Yeah, sometimes they will, but you're playing Russian roulette with your loved one's life. TRUST ME ON THIS.

In my entire so-called career, I only got to press one of these big red emergency stop buttons for real a single time, way back when I was responsible for a basement computer facility at RAND in Santa Monica. I've described the rather bizarre story elsewhere, but the bottom line is that pressing one of these babies is a big deal in most operational environments, since it means instantly cutting power in a very unfriendly way to lots of really expensive and sometimes delicate equipment.

For the record, there's nothing I wrote publicly even decades ago that I don't feel comfortable standing on today. I was never a wacko.
