Fractal-ish.

I might just go and vote Democrat in tomorrow's MA primary. My vote won't matter but it would be fun to think I'm messing with them a bit.

Mark said...

Well, I saw my hair flipping up a bit in the back, so I pulled out the electric clippers and did a no-see touch-up. THEN I pulled out the mirror.

Big mistake.

Mark said...

Maybe I can start wearing shirts with a super high collar.

Or maybe a hoodie all the time.

Think they will mind at work?

Mark said...

Or I could just let people point and snicker and laugh behind my back.

Amy sure looks like she’s looking for a VP slot. I like her, she’d be a good VP and President should Biden win the nomination and Presidency. I still like a Warren and Bernie better, but Biden and Amy would get moderate votes.

Should Biden win the nomination and then the Presidency and if he would die in office.

How nice of Mainstream Democrats to clear the field so the only vote is for Biden. Then when he withdraws because of health -- guess who can reappear on the->Stage!

Note: Slow Joe Biden is not going to blithely step aside for she-who-must-not-be-named. He did that four years ago and was said to be bitter about it.

Eighty-six customers are quarantined inside a brothel in Spain, along with the working girls and even the cleaning staff, after one of the prostitutes tested positive for COVID-19. It could be a fun couple weeks, but I expect they’ll find the locks changed and their stuff piled in the street when they finally get home.

For certain aberrant definitions of “moderate,” yes.

Moderate means a combination of open corruption and a wide range of physically abusive treatments of employees. The female SS officers loved watching Biden's shortcomings in the pool. Amy has records for most crying staffers in a week.

Hillary is jealous.

Throw in some spying on political opponents, open borders, infanticide, gun confiscation, and openly selling out to China and you have Inga's "moderate."

Senile is also moderate now.

Believing in media hoaxes is moderate.

Being a constant and consistent liar is moderate.

Biden is not going to be the nominee.

It is impossible to see a world where that is the democrat's plan.

Bernie would be better for them than Biden.

This is about the down ballot at this point. None of these people will beat Trump. Their only goal has to be congress.

There will be less enthusiasm for Biden than for Hillary. That is doom for the house and senate hopes of D's.

They are still aiming for brokered convention and they are recruiting the savior now.

It is not Hillary.

Big Mike said...

An angry group of BLM protestors showed up at 5:30 AM to pound on the door of the Los Angeles DA to demand an interview. The DA is a black woman and her equally black husband met the protestors with a cocked and loaded pistol pointed at them. The husband advised the protestors on his doorstep that the police had been called, and Further advised them, with some apparent asperity, that they might desire to be elsewhere. At a press conference the BLM protestors, with perfectly straight faces, expressed concern that for all the DA and her husband knew, they might have been trick-or-treaters (at 5:30 AM in March?).

California seems pretty large for a lunatic asylum, but there aren’t too many alternate explanations for what’s going on.

Sebastian said...

Let's say the convention gets "brokered." Can't see Biden stepping aside for a Clinton or Obama. No governor who ran or didn't run can be the compromise candidate.

But there is one savior all Dems can accept. Of course, she has to be a black woman. She has to be able to unite the factions. She has to be able to stir enthusiasm and help down-ballot. It helps if she has money. She has to be more or less Trump-proof. That savior is, as I called it way back in 2016, Oprah.

That's a famous description of my state: Too large to be a lunatic asylum, too small to be a replublic.

Of course CA could be a republic, I suppose, and they'd probably be happier, and we'd probably be happier.

What is your reasoning for that statement? You saying they won't choose one or that they should not choose one?

Well Oprah would be younger than any other viable candidate now, there is that. I don't think she wants the job.

Did you see Biden this evening in Texas? He had Beto come on stage and then Biden, out of nowhere, told the crowd that Beto was going to be in charge of gun confiscation in an Biden campaign!

LOL

Biden probably thought he was speaking in Berkeley.

I suspect we'll be seeing that one in ads against Biden once the dems steal the nomination from Bernie again.

Nobody wins an actual majority in any state.

Most states have early voting and most voters voted before everyone dropped. Will states post results of quitters? What does total votes adding up to 68% look like?

There will be shenanigans. Re purposing the votes for quitters to Biden or Bloomberg will cause sillyness and games.

Shit is going to get burned down somewhere.

Bernie thugs assaulted the Klobuchar campaign in Minnesota and they pulled out of the race shortly after. I can't wait to see what they do to Liawatha. But Warren supporters and campaign areas will be attacked.

Hmm...

Bloomberg was asked why he thought it was OK to have armed guards and take guns away from citizens. While doing the "I am rich and I get death threats" routine he was interrupted with "You think your life is worth more than ours?"

Fox cut to commercial.

They could be trying to start an open war. They are openly hysterical and melting down in public at this point.

Trump supporters want Biden alive and nominated. They will have a Bernie Bro do that job at some point.

You could drag a candidate out of an assisted living home and s/he would probably be younger than any other viable candidate now.

You wouldn't be far off if you thought of the Biden campaign as being a lot like the movie This Is Spinal Tap. They're wandering around a labyrinth back stage in Chicago, and pretty soon Biden will come out and yell, "Hello, Cleveland!"

Yancey Ward said...

Bay Area Guy,

For what it is worth, I also think the full court press is too late given the early voting has been going on for 2 or more weeks. My predictions:

California- (1)Sanders 40% (2)Biden 20% (3)Bloomberg 14% (4)Warren 13% (5)Rest of Field 13%
Texas- (1)Sanders 30% (2)Biden 27% (3)Bloomberg 18% (4)Warren 10% (5)Rest of Field 15%
Virginia- (1)Biden 35% (2)Sanders 28% (3)Bloomberg 17% (4)Warren 10% (5)Rest of Field 10%
N. Carolina (1)Biden 37% (2)Sanders 28% (3)Bloomberg 13% (4)Warren 10% (5)Rest of Field 12%
Tennessee (1)Sanders 33% (2)Biden 28% (3)Bloomberg 15% (4)Warren 10% (5)Rest of Field 14%
Alabama (1)Biden 45% (2)Sanders 25% (3)Bloomberg 12% (4)Warren 10% (5)Rest of Field 8%
Mass. (1)Sanders 32% (2)Warren 28% (3)Biden 12% (4)Bloomberg 10% (5)Rest of Field 8%
Minn. (1)Sanders 31% (2)Klobuchar 25% (3)Warren 16% (4)Bloomberg 5% (5)Rest of Field 25%

Also, Bernie will run away with Colorado, Utah, Vermont, and Maine. Biden will win Oklahoma and Arkansas with Sanders finishing within 5-8% in both.

All in all, I expect Sanders to win at least 45% of the pledged delegates, Biden to win about 35%, with Bloomberg and Warren getting most of the rest- Klob will get some in Minnesota.

Warren will withdraw after tomorrow, and will probably throw her support to Sanders if she makes an endorsement at all.

Achilles said...

I don't think Bloomberg breaks double digits.

Anywhere.

Clyde said...

I wonder (rhetorically) what the effect will be of so many candidates dropping out within a couple of days of Super Tuesday, after early voting is almost over and mail-in ballots are already in the mail? All of those early voters who chose Buttigieg or Klobuchar or Steyer wasted their votes. If the feckless candidates are going to do that to you, you may as well wait until the actual Election Day if you want your vote to count. These are Democrat voters we're talking about, however, so I don't expect them to learn anything from the experience.

Achilles said...

Yancey Ward said...

You still think Warren is calling her own shots?

I don't.

She is in as long as most of her voters say Sanders is their second choice. She knows she is about to come in second or third in her home state. She would have pulled out by now if she could.

She only pulls out when they let her.

Everyone is being told what to do at this point. This includes Sanders.

The Masters are in charge.

Yancey Ward said...

Achilles,

He might not, but I have to believe $500+ million in ad buys in these selected states gets at least 10% of the vote. I would love to see him get zero delegates- the tweets Trump would send would be epic!

Do ads deliver votes? I've always been skeptical.

FullMoon said...

Remember Warren bringing up Micheal Brown lie a couple of weeks ago?
She apparently skipped Trayvon's anniversary. Maybe 'cause Zimmerman is suing a bunch of people for lying about him..or, maybe she just forgot..

Achilles said...

So a program that recursively loops until you fill up a 12 character array and a 5 character array.

With no directions for input size or overflow/overwrite protection for gets().

You also didn't zero out the memory at your noHP and inputPulsa memory locations so the check pulsa and check nomoreHP functions will most likely pass with random garbage from past writes.

And you have 50 characters of space with some random ascii randomly slotted in that is not used and gap space that isn't ever filled.

Not actually sure if #include with nothing behind it will compile.

Sorry...

I'm not from cali, so i don't know how their 'law' works, but
IF
you're a business owner, and you see someone 'shoplifting' a few hundred bucks worth...
Obviously, you couldn't shoot them, THAT WOULD BE WRONG
and, you certainly couldn't detain them; that would be kidnapping
BUT
couldn't you walk up to them, and say: "Please don't steal that stuff!" ?
AND IF while you were POLITELY mentioning to them that you'd prefer they not steal...
They were to THREATEN YOU, AND MAKE YOU FEAR FOR YOUR LIFE
Couldn't LEGALLY Defend yourself?? IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN

In Iowa, if you're in your home, or place of business; AND YOU FEAR FOR YOUR LIFE
it's Open Season on the person threating you. What's Cali's "law" say about this?

Exactly right. This was scary. I knew I should have turned away in seconds. But my mind split. Half of it couldn't believe what it was seeing and could not look away. The other half was watching me watch it and trying to understand why I was still there. After viewing your posts this morning, Aunty, I'm reassured that we are in the final days of Western Civilization. I get daily reminders. Yours is the standard today.

Well...might as well go down fighting.

So the wife and I watch the Bachelor. I don't blame others who skip it. Last night was the "Women Tell All", which is usually just a chance to rehash dumb arguments.

ABC decided to spend an entire segment about online bullying. They had an older contestant come out and read angry comments that were indeed ugly and inappropriate. It was a segment to scold a portion of the audience. So what do you follow up such a segment with?

How about a commercial for The Hunt, a movie depicting the hunting of humans because of their politics. Yes, that's what they did to follow up a message regarding online bullying. Thanks for the lesson, ABC/Disney.

WHOM instructs the peasantry on how to speak about the Chinese plague that the Chinese created and then spread all over the world by their carelessness, filthy living conditions and dishonesty:

DO - talk about the new #coronavirus disease (#COVID19)

DON'T - attach locations or ethnicity to the disease, this is not a “Wuhan Virus”, “Chinese Virus” or “Asian Virus”.
The official name for the disease was deliberately chosen to avoid stigmatization

DO - talk about people “acquiring” or “contracting” #COVID19

DON'T - talk about people “transmitting COVID-19” “infecting others” or “spreading the virus” as it implies intentional transmission & assigns blame

But most of all, "Don't do what Donny Don't Does!"
