Watching PBS NOVA show about quantum entanglement. Mind boggling.

rhhardin said...

Things that certainly never happened - Trump storms out of a meeting with Schumer and Pelosi. Fake news.

rhhardin said...

I think quantum entanglement is an artifact of solving individual Schrodinger equations for separate particles instead of putting everything in one huge Schrodinger equation.

YoungHegelian said...

“And not only that but the women and children on the border seeking refuge and opportunity in the U.S. with nothing but the shirt on their backs are acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be.”

Rep Ocasio-Cortez, (NY) today on MSNBC to Rachel Maddow.

This is sort of stuff that should be investigated by the FEC as a possible in-kind contribution to the Make America Even Greater Campaign to Re-Elect Trump in 2020.

Trump the big fat stinking liar

Don Surber, CBS caught Trump in a lie. Hilarity ensues.

Trump said one in three women have been sexually assaulted traveling to the border.

Fact check: Between 60% and 80% of female migrants traveling through Mexico are raped along the way, Amnesty International estimates.

CNN Fact Checks Trump and agrees with everything

Seeing Red said...

Via Insty about pot use:

Paranoia and psychosis make people dangerous, so rising use of a drug that causes both would be expected to increase violent crime, rather than reduce it as pot advocates claim. Berenson looked at data for the four states that legalized weed in 2014 and 2015—Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Colorado—and calculated a combined 35 percent increase in murders in those states from 2013 to 2017, compared with a 20-percent rise nationally. This “isn’t a statistical anomaly,” Berenson writes. “It’s real.”

The role of weed in rising violent crime rates in legalization states is a hotly contested question, especially in Colorado, where murders in Denver are at a 10-year high. Berenson admits he can’t say for sure whether those upswings are due to legal weed, but the raw data, he says, definitely contradicts advocates’ claims: “What I want people to stop saying is that legalization reduces violent crime. It doesn’t.”



$20 TRILLION in debt.

Can our health care afford the psychoses we r being asked to pay for?

Plus how much is this fluid biology costing?

Throw in open borders.....

@FullMoon,

CNN Fact Checks Trump and agrees with everything

I look forward to the networks' tacit agreement to Fox News "fact checking" the next Democratic president's speeches to the nation.

Chuck said...

Hahahaha!

Lawrence O'Donnell is doing a masterful job tonight, working through THIS STORY by Gabriel Sherman in Vanity Fair.

"Total fucking chaos."

A "horrific" report now expected from Mueller, per none other than Rudolph Giuliani.

The "wall" as Donald Trump's personal "Alamo."

"You're already hearing people speculate that Trump could do a deal and resign."

walter said...

Hahahaha!
Chuck said..."I am afraid you are mistaking me for someone who has an interest in fair treatment of Donald Trump. I'm not your guy. I am interested in smearing him, hurting him and prejudicing people against him."

And that isn't from anonymous sources.
Straight from the horse's ass.

narciso said...

Scary Larry, who seems to have gotten crazier after his accident.

Chuck said...

Why is that such a hard quote for you boyz to digest? I am not a judge overseeing a case where Trump is a litigant. I am not a journalist working a White House or Washington beat. I'm not a sworn federal officer, and certainly not an active duty military officer.

I owe no legal duty to Trump, whatsoever. I have no duty of "fair treatment" for him. I think he's done a few good things (Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, etc.) and has otherwise done real damage to the country and the Republican Party.

If I were Rush Limbaugh and I said, I am afraid you are mistaking me for someone who has an interest in fair treatment of Barack Obama. I'm not your guy. I am interested in smearing him, hurting him and prejudicing people against him, nobody would bat an eye. It would be the most unremarkable, dog-bites-man story of the week.

Indeed, if we substituted the name of Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for Trump/Obama in my quote, that too would be so unremarkable as to go unnoticed if it came from Rush Limbaugh. Speaking of "lifelong Republicans." With friends like Rush, Republicans don't need enemies.

narciso said...

It's a theory, but how do you prove quantum entanglement?

iowan2 said...

Chuck, I looked at your source. I learned there is no source. No a single person can be contacted to verify any of your crap.

narciso said...

So the washimgton post having an opening left by effendi khashoggi, has sought to fill it the jew baiting leader of the Houthis and now a Vodafone exec turned Morsi minister who vouches for the late Abdel rantissi of hamas

Big Mike said...

As I've stated before, Chuck is a racist of the lowest and worst sort. What he calls "real damage to the country and the Republican Party" amounts to jobs for young black and Hispanic males. He'd rather they stayed on welfare or dealt drugs and stuff like that.

walter said...

Gee Chuck,
Did Rush claim he voted for Obama?
Own your dysfunction..or fucked up ruse.

Chuck said...

LLR Chuck: "It's a free country. Believe what you want"

It is a wise policy to never believe self-described smear merchants.

Chuck said...

Hahaha! I'm still watching MSNBC. Brian Williams running video from one year ago today, and in it Trump is meeting with Congressional leaders and doing that thing where Trump was agreeing with Dianne Feinstein on his accepting a vote on a clean DACA bill... and Kevin McCarthy jumping in to rein in the President who clearly had no idea what he was doing and no idea of the import of what he was saying. I had forgotten just how stupid and how totally unprepared the President was in that meeting.

It was bad enough at the time; and it is a reminder of how little has been done on any immigration or border security issues in all of that time since. But moreover, it is more poignant with the current shutdown battle.

It has all along scared me, that "the Wall" is such a vanity project for Trump, that he will cave on DACA or some other Democrat initiative, just to get his Wall.

walter said...

Of course you are watching MSNBC.
Like every LLR.

narciso said...

Of course its horrifically bad, ask Dr. Hatfill about Mueller for nearly four years, he was tagged as the anthrax mailer, ultimately Mueller relented and the bureau paid him 5.5 million, ask the board of Arthur andersom if you can find them.


Drago said...

LLR Chuck: "I owe no legal duty to Trump, whatsoever. I have no duty of "fair treatment" for him."

LOL

Self-described smear merchant forgets that he claims he wants to destroy Trump with facts, them proceeds with his far left smears, then attempts to re-establish his fact-based LLR pose, before he once again veers off track with far left smears...and on and on and on!

What's the excuse tonight Chuck? Bourbon?

Too funny.

Hackiest of the lefty hacks Lawrence O'Donnell of the farthest left MSNBC is now "masterful" in Chuck's mind!

It just keeps getting better and better!

iowan2 said...

Chuck said

Unlike you, I don't 'believe' things. I take in the information as given, use the context, of the information, evaluate the quality of the information, consider the motivation of the source, and the past history of the source(s). Then I make an informed decision.

You believe shit.

I evaluate information.

I have never worked with an attorney that 'believed' stuff. On second thought, I have never met a lawyer that believed stuff. They reach informed conclusions.

Drago said...

LLR Chuck: "...still watching MSNBC. Brian Williams running..."

LOL

Maddow: "brilliant"!
Harwood: "professional"!
Obama: "magnificent"!
Durbin: "competent and effective"!
O'Donnell: "masterful"!
Blumenthal: "only mispoke" about his Stolen Valor lies!
...

The list of LLR Chuck praise for the leftist-y of the lefties is literally endless.

Literally.

LOL

"True Conservative"!

narciso said...

Well 18 credits is amusing, maddow forgot she denounced military interventions six years ago, Is Harwood still dating Maria Cantwell yech.

iowan2 said...

And as a great way to finish off a January Wednesday, the mercury reading a brisk 16 F. Iowa beat Northwestern at Evanston. I predict this game turns the Hawkeyes into a consistent top 20 team and will get a good seed in March Madness.

Chuck said...

walter said...

George Will is on MSNBC.

I watch it sometimes; often not. I never watch MSNBC for more that a few minutes without seeing something wrong and/or hysterical. But they are doing cogent reporting on Trump and the Mueller investigation. Which is now the only game in town.

What is Sean Hannity talking about these days? The Deep State? Hillary's emails?

Milo Minderbinder said...

So, why don't they send the 380k federal workers who need a paycheck to the southern border to build a wall and kill two birds with one stone???

narciso said...

Because the money has to be appropriated and then passed by the house.

Drago said...

LLR Chuck: "George Will is on MSNBC."

LOLOLOLOL

That would be the George Will who endorsed all democrats over republicans and called for all voters to give control of both the House and Senate to the democrats!

Just like LLR Chuck!

ALL "True Conservative" LLR's want the dems to win, everywhere, all the time.

You see, the only way to "save" the republican party and conservatism is for the dens and the left to control all the levers of power.

LOL

I dont think Chuck is really even trying anymore....to, you know,...keep up the act...

Drago said...

This is what happens when Chuck suddenly remembers he is supposed to be playing LLR Chuck: "I never watch MSNBC for more that a few minutes without seeing something wrong and/or hysterical."

LOL

Shorter Chuck (waving hands): You didnt read all that obviously leftist stuff I wrote earlier...it never happened...I am a True Conservative.....

walter said...

Yes, yes...freeking George Will! Hopefully a baseball update!
If you think MSNBC quoting a bunch of anonymous sources is "cogent", drink up buddy.
You've unmasked yourself.
Hack on...

Drago said...

I also like how LLR Chuck tries to change the subject to Fox News!

Between tonight and last nights pathetic performance, LLR Chuck has failed his lefty allies.

Lets see what he can pull out of the hat to try and recover...

Deirdre Mundy said...

So, I've been lurking for a few years, since most of my conversations have moved to FB, and a lot of my old favorite commentors disappeared.

But a friend made the piece below out of Japanese Chain Mail, and since RBG is a blog interest and there's an open thread:

Iron Lace's RBG collar

Drago said...

Whats next Chuck, a link to a "men's appreciation" "magazine" showing obama running shirtless thru the surf?

Not to worry though Chuckie, I am sure he keeps a pair of ultra-creased slacks hanging over a nearby stump in LLR Cuck Island to keep you and "super conservative" David Brooks enthralled....

narciso said...

If chuck didnt say he was from Michigan, I'd think he was Conor f, Andrew Sullivan's understudy, that's a dirty job that even Michael rowe cant salvage.

MadisonMan said...

You're already hearing people speculate that Trump could do a deal and resign

How many times have I heard this -- or something similar -- during the Trump Presidency. He'll be gone next week!

This time it'll actually happen, I'm so sure.

narciso said...

Sarah Carter has been following the narrative of the caravan, and she has shown based on her experience in Afghanistan how it's more than miss the eye,

Drago said...

"You're already hearing people speculate that Trump could do a deal and resign"

Something only leftists repeat to themselves and their fellow leftists.

How....utterly unsurprising and predictable..that LLR Chuck would write that as well......

In the end though. Obama blamed both Cameron and Sarkozy. Brexit was a good move but at ths end of the race Theresa May had gove stick a shiv in boris, they shamed leadsom for having children and we find ourselves in this 39 billion pound ransom of red chief.

To be fair, Germany is borrowing this pay for return strategy from the French..as they do with Romanians...in a rinse/repeat cycle.

William said...

There's some old production of Shakespeare's Anthony & Cleopatra on Amazon Prime. It has some idiosyncratic casting choices. Lynn Redgrave plays Cleopatra. Of all the Redgraves and Richardsons to choose to play Cleopatra, she woulld be about my last choice. She has none of the fire and air of Cleopatra, nor even any of her base elements. R degrade was appropriately regal at times, but Cleopatra should be a lot sexier than Lynn Redgrave.......Timothy Dalton played Marc Anthony. He was okay. Dalton was one of the lesser James Bonds, and, when you stop to think about it, so was Marc Anthony in the pantheon of Roman generals.......Lt. Uhuru of Star Trek played one of Cleopatra's attendants. Star Trek actors really take you out of Shakespeare's world. That actor who played Chekhov on Star Trek was also in this production.......I can't recommend this production. It took my five tries to get through it. Still, it's a better choice than MSNBC.

narciso said...

I guess since her older sister played guinevere in Camelot, yes Lynn Redgrave it's been ages, chekhov in classical drama?

With a corporate wide shutdown from 12/21/18 through 1/1/19 and a short work week last week, this one seems to be going on forever. Is it only Thursday?

Speaking of fact checking, it seems some in the Media are now against it:

I never understood the whole "objects at a distance" conundrum given that all objects are at a distance--nothing is actually touching anything.

Fear not! At least 4 recent studies say the exact opposite. Berenson's a former NYT cribbler trying to sell books.

I never understood the whole "objects at a distance" conundrum

The entanglement's "action at a distance" is faster than light and no information is transmitted.
