Hi, Sorry to bother you, but. Hey! How's it been.

A lot has happened since last we met. I summered on the beach and it has been bliss. BLISS! My Blissters got blisters! It's way cool.

I took that picture! Thank you very much for the kind words, Josh.  I take pictures. Joost them on an artists' site where I half pretend I want to sell them. Just want people to like them. But I'm half working on a money making idea. (Or 20)

Grew my hair out long, lost a bunch of weight , Live alone, On the beach. I have a hell of a tan. Right about now it has had some "fucking cold" days (days that require extra layer clothing) but I can't complain.

Anyway, good to see ya' I say bygones be bygones. PLAU is my motto. I have a different character that I play over there. It's an entertainment form, wherein there is a "reality show" that stars, well look at that you! I believe and feel 100% as I say there. And the voice is 100% mine. But it is a different kind of voice. I like that guy. His name is Uther.

His name is Uther because he is the father of the website www.Authorpendraggin.com which is the website where I keep my book and idea and blah blah blah. Uther Pendraggin
Check my picture site www.Uther-Pendraggin-pixels.com is a nice guy. He has to practice good etiquette /netiquette and be complimentary and find the good. It's a nice change.

I invited them all over here. They don't get to talk politics or religion, or dirt, or snark, and a blowjob is right out of the fucking question! I don't know if they came by or not.  I'm still disliked. I have some good friends as well but, even a nice guy has to take it to the hoop once in a while. Also very clique lique.

So why Did I come here today?

I was writing an idea and figured I could get it down here.

Eventually, the states will have sold the naming rights to a highest bidder. Among those bidders will be Russian Oligarchs, Multinational corporations and political parties looking to consolidate power. Of course, no combination could be termed "Unholy Alliance," given that there is no other type given the circumstances.

The Constitution will have to be rewritten, of course. See? That's what FDR did right. He changed things for a long time he did. Nearly changed everything! For keeps. The Constitution itself needs to be made to understand that just because ExxAramocompanyPutiniska owns the debt of 7 states, and has consolidated operations, eliminating redundancies and showing net, TAX FREE earnings along with transferrable Capital losses. Doesn't mean that those states both shouldn't and should be classified as one. We still have 14 Senators. But we're only billing as one entity.

Shit, the more I write about it, the more it makes sense.

What would cause us to take such drastic measures? Stuff. We're going to want more stuff. Stuff costs money. Good stuff costs a lot more, at least up front. The way things are these days, you're nearly just as well off not buying the best quality. It's going to wear out anyway and by the same time they will have come out with new stuff anyway, so you were going to be throwing stuff away soon anyway.  Stuff costs money.

States are a good investment! How the fuck can you lose money being the government? It is the surest money on the planet! Yet when mixed with the capitalist economic system, we have managed to make a country that cannot support itself. And all on the idea that if the people had their money, they'd make better choices with their money than the government does. Why do they want people to have more money? Because they know for a FACT that Americans in general will NOT make better decisions with their money, but conversely, will make poor decisions. Such that that money ill accrue to those few who have to suffer by with all of our money now.

"It's a death trap It's a suicide rap..."

With a bit of solid management and consolidating and fixing the leaks in the system, ALL the leaks, not just the ones that take from the poor. I mean, take from the poor, sure, don't stop doing that, but take from the dumb bastards that think they're "rich" with their hundred of million dollars. And if you are a corporation that isn't in the buying group... Well there's retail, there's wholesale, there's buyers club, and then, way down here? This is the insider's price. Every state will run at a profit. And consolidation is the natural consequence. I'd be alright with a New England Plus New York combo. Of course, we'll need New Jersey too. Pennsylvania ought to join as well but you know they're going to be courted heavily by the Ohioans.


I'm not saying it's good or it's bad Or that it is inevitable. Or preventable. One day it might just be a backstory.

Gotta hop. Good seeing y'all.

Plau
UPD (Yup, It'z ME!)

I really didn't like Post loss John McCain.

I don't particularly blame him. Al Gore and others have crawled away into their cave to cry and grow a beard after they lost a bitterly fought effort to win. John McCain didn't have that luxury.

He had to deal with it in public and he did so by becoming the worst of the right wing partisans.

I don't blame him, given the way the comics were all over him on the age thing. It was tired before Mc Cain was. And the country was all about Barack. We were going to make history. And Dubya had made a royal mess out of everything! So the chance of Mc Cain getting elected was miniscule to start with, That's why the R's backed away and let him have the nom. Hot potato!

But he had the turn, the twist in the final act before the curtain came down.

But before the election, he was a favorite uncle. He was on The Daily Show as their most frequent guest (of there about) his rapport with Jon Stewart was inspiring.

Overall, I liked John McCain. Even when we disagreed. Even when I didn't like him (there was a time when I REALLY didn't like him. I felt betrayed by him.)

When he told that woman "No No No, he's a good man! We just see things differently, but he loves his country." (or words to that effect.) That reasonable guy who looked hatred in the eye and knew that it was really just fear. Fear that had been whipped up in his own service by the people he served shoulder to shoulder with. He knew it was bad.

Godspeed, John McCain.

I was just saying "hello" to NYKnicks12, I really didn't need it critiqued. Thanks anyway.

As to your dystopian view of the Democratic party. Thanks anyway. False equivalencies are the norm in today's discourse.

Knicks12,

What the hell kind of handle is that?

Nice the way they cleaned this place up, isn't it?

Thank you, from me to LiquidSilver. In a way you are helping the world be a better place. If only by concentrating the animosity in a small container. But also by having a space where the ideas can be launched into the collective consciousness.

PLAU

670 ballots in a precinct with 276 voters, and other tales from Georgia's primary [McClatchy Washington Bureau :: BC-GA-ELECTIONSECURITY:WA]

 
Tue Aug 07 10:03:28 2018 EDT
 WASHINGTON  _  Habersham County's   Mud Creek  precinct in northeastern  Georgia  had 276 registered voters ahead of the state's primary elections in May.
But 670 ballots were cast, according to the  Georgia  secretary of state's office, indicating a 243 percent turnout.
The discrepancy, included in a number of sworn statements and exhibits filed as part of a federal lawsuit against the state by election security activists, comes amid swelling public concern for the security of  Georgia's  voting systems.  Georgia  is one of four states that uses voting machines statewide that produce no paper record for voters to verify, making them difficult to audit, experts say.
And cybersecurity experts have warned that there were security flaws on the state election website leading up to the 2016 contest that permitted the download and manipulation of voter information.
The court filings highlight various issues with  Georgia's  16-year-old voting machines, as well as the system that runs them and handles voter registration information.
In one sworn statement, a voter explains that she and her husband, who were registered to vote at the same address, were assigned different polling places and different city council districts. In another, a voting machine froze on  Election Day .
In several instances, voters showed up at their polling places as listed on the secretary of state's website, only to be told they were supposed to vote elsewhere.
An  Atlanta  Democrat's voting machine provided him a ballot including the  5th Congressional District , for which longtime Rep. John Lewis ran unopposed, instead of his  6th Congressional District  ballot, which featured a competitive Democratic race.
Some issues, such as the freezing machines, could be chalked up to the age of the polling infrastructure, said  Harri Hursti , a computer programmer who studies election cybersecurity.
But others, like the incorrect ballots, could have been caused by anything from a clerical error to a malicious manipulation of voter data, said Hursti, who is also the organizer for the  Voting Village  at hacking conference DEF CON, where participants demonstrate hacking into some state voting machines.
It's possible that there's a connection between the security issues reported at  Georgia's   Center for Election Systems  and the issues chronicled in the court statements, but an immediate switch to paper ballots is necessary regardless, Hursti said.
"But the connection is not needed," he said. "You don't need to have a smoking gun to do the right thing."
In a statement, the office of  Georgia's  Secretary of State  Brian Kemp  defended the security of state elections.
"Alongside federal, local and private sector partners, we continue to fight every day to ensure secure and accurate elections in  Georgia  that are free from interference. To this day, due to the vigilance, dedication and hard work of those partners, our elections system and voting equipment remain secure," spokeswoman  Candice Broce  wrote in an email.
Kemp has set up a bipartisan commission to look into changing state voting machines ahead of the 2020 elections, but not in time for the midterm elections this November.
 Marilyn Marks , the executive director of the  Coalition for Good Government , which has led the charge against the state's management of the election system, said the statements filed in federal court are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to voter complaints.
"We are submitting only a small sample from scores of known system malfunctions and irregularities," she wrote in an email. "But those examples should raise alarms with officials, political parties, candidates and voters. Something is terribly wrong at a systemic level, and is not being taken seriously by Secretary Kemp, or the state and counties' election boards charged with conducting secure elections."
The court statements are the latest additions to the growing list of concerns surrounding  Georgia's  election security.
In July,  Justice Department  special counsel  Robert Mueller's  indictment indicated that Russian operatives charged with hacking into  Democrats'  emails also visited county election websites in  Georgia , among other states.
 Kennesaw State University's   Center for Election Systems , which was responsible for running  Georgia's  elections, was proved vulnerable by friendly cybersecurity experts both before and after the 2016 elections.
Voter information and other important data, which gets disseminated to polling places in  Georgia's  159 counties, was open to the public and could have been manipulated by bad actors, charged  Logan Lamb , the first friendly hacker to notify the state of the issue. He sent that notification in  August 2016 , but the problem was not fully solved until  March 2017 .
 Jasmine Clark , who will be on the ballot for  Georgia's   House of Representatives  in November, spent an extra half hour at her polling place on  July 24 . If she didn't have that spare time, she may not have been able to vote at all, she said in her statement.
When Clark arrived at about 7:50 that morning, elections officials told her she'd gone to the wrong polling place, even though she hadn't changed her registration information since 2016.
Inexplicably, she was told 25 minutes later that her name had appeared on the electronic poll book for that voting location, and she was able to cast her ballot.
"Unlike other people I met that day who were turned away, I had the flexibility to stay to fight for my right to vote in the right precinct on the correct ballot," she said in her statement.
 Duluth  voter  Dana Bowers  experienced a similar problem. She was told, "Don't worry  Ms. Bowers , this has been happening all day," according to her sworn declaration.
Bowers, who works as an advocacy coordinator in  Josh McCall's  campaign for the  9th Congressional District , had checked her "My Voter Page" on the secretary of state's office website before heading to the polls in July and found she'd been assigned a new precinct _ number 100.
But when she arrived at what she thought was her new polling place, she was told she was still assigned her original polling place in precinct 96. She wound up filling out a provisional ballot that day. When she checked her "My Voter Page" after the election, she wrote in her statement, she was assigned to precinct 96 once more.
Other statements chronicled issues with the voting machines themselves.
Bowers, for example, noticed that a machine was marked "Do Not Touch," when she went to vote in July. One poll worker told her votes had been cast on the machine prior to its failure on  Election Day .
After the polls closed, Bowser noticed the results tape from the machine showed it hadn't collected any votes.

Sorry for the long cite, but.. Jesus ephin' Christ! This is another case of "Methinks thou doth protest too loud." (yes, I know that's not the direct quote, but it is in the vernacular.) Georgia is SURE there is voter fraud, because they are the ones perpetrating it!

It makes me sick to my stomach that I have to share a country with such brigands!

It's probably a "Nuclear Option" but the Congress should institute a policy thatsays that before any law can be passed, there needs to be an "Economic Impact Statement" done which shows a clear and direct pathway for a net betterment of the economic environment as a result of the law.

This statement must include the number of jobs lost versus the number of jobs maintained and/or created.

It must include the costs of remediating the physical environment should the (de)regulation prove harmful to the public health and or safety. Versus the short term benefit of the (de)regulation.


The policy is retroactive, meaning that all existing laws must be made to be compliant with the new policy. If that means that the government has to work hard to get caught up on their work, well, welcome to the real world! There is no time for grilling a public servant for doing his job or wasting million$ to demonize a member of the other party so as to make the pathway to power easier for one's own party.

Similarly, the Democrats ought to demand an "environmental Impact Statement" before any legislation regarding the wildlife preservation and endangered species act can be voted on.

See now, I noted what you noted about what was said to have been said.

The report on how many apologies were demanded of the woman are worthless, given that the men don't necessarily demand apologies from men. but they do of the woman.

Possibly not. but the story didn't much explain oin one direction of the other. It was a fer shit article, about a shit fer brains senator in, well you know what kind of pile it is.

Aussie Senator suing over Aussie being an Aussie (I.E. an asshole)

I didn't enjoy the fact that the article didn't print up the lead up to the exchange. But otherwise.

Aussies are an upside down and backwards people. I suspect it has something to do with the Coriolis Effect. They are devolving. On the upside, soon they won't be revolting, they'll just be volting (which will probably be achieved by sticking their dicks in light sockets.)

You may have seen Cohen give the Pedophile test to Roy Moore. If you haven't,

Funny. and well played.

But to me the laugh out loud part is where Roy Moore is agreeing that the history of Alabama is Freedom and equality for all peoples. That is just too funny!

But it does show that the systemic racism is at a level that is subdural. It is like a cotton seed that is deep deep in the soul of the south. They don't even know that it is there.

Hello Itz ME!

China in South America.]https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/28/world/americas/china-latin-america.html]China in South America.

Obviously this is not a Trump administration based base. The Chinese have been working with certain expectations for years.

But it does illustrate the idea that the US not building trade zones up and down the hemisphere is perhaps the tipping point for the end of the American Influence Era.

Stupid.
