    Good afternoon/evening folks. I gotta say that biggest advantage to my new job, is that I”m too busy to check my twitter or the blogs until I get home, so I have the benefit of missing the latest “freak-out” of the day. Today’s bullshhhh freak-out…James Carville and his Clintonista BS about Obama liking to insult liberals.

    I glad I missed that.

    TGIF guys. My weekend plan: go to theatre to see 42, and try to get to NOLA to take part in the annual French Quarter Festival

    Ornstein’s Conclusion

    By Ed Kilgore

    —————————

    He goes on to talk about the unparalleled use of the filibuster in the Senate over the last seven years (which happens to coincide with the latest period of Republican minority status in that chamber):

    The use or threat of filibuster as a routine weapon of obstruction is new, and it has changed the character of the Senate and distorted democracy.

    This is a guy, mind you, with a long-term affiliation with the conservative American Enterprise Institute, not some Democratic hack.

    So when I say, as I do now and then, that the radicalization of the Republican Party and the conservative movement is the preeminent political development of our era, there’s some nonpartisan authority behind that statement, aside from facts and logic.

    Well I have to say, Joe is my very favoritist VP in my lifetime. In fact, I would have to say POTUS and VPOTUS are the best team this country has had in those positions in my lifetime. Having two great looking and intelligent wifes doesn’t hurt. I apologize for saying great looking. Dang, now I have gone and talked in a threatening way.

    Ornstein: Congress Has Changed, Not for the Better, and Now It Needs Changing

    By Norman Ornstein

    ———————-

    There are no more moderate or liberal Republicans — the Sherwood Boehlerts, John Porters, Amo Houghtons and Michael N. Castles are long gone. What now passes for a moderate would have been considered a bedrock conservative in the early 1990s.

    The House GOP has veered sharply, even drastically, to the right from what already was a pretty rightist center of gravity.

    But more important has been the attitudinal change. Respect for the institution of Congress — much less for the framers’ vision of policymaking through deliberation, debate and an effort to find common ground, or at least grounds for compromise — has been replaced by obduracy, contempt for compromise and a level of demonization of the other side, starting with the president. This is deeply unsettling.

    I have sympathy for the task of Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio, who knows that his options for enacting laws, meaning reconciling differences with bills that pass the Senate, are limited to finding more Democrats than Republicans to pass measures on the floor.

    No, the `Hastert Rule’ isn’t supposed to be Holy writ

    By Greg Sargent

    ——————————

    “I never used the phrase `Hastert Rule,’” Feehery told me today. “I don’t know where it came from. This was always meant to be situational advice, never a hard-and-fast rule.”

    The guideline is meant to ensure a Speaker’s survival over time, but it’s not absolute. “The job of the Speaker is to expedite legislation,” Feehery says, “but to keep his job as Speaker, he or she has to make sure he or she is pleasing a majority of the majority.”

    So let’s rename this the “Hastert Guideline.” Indeed, according to the New York Times, Hastert himself broke this rule a number of times during his tenure as Speaker from 1999-2007. During this Congress, Speaker Boehner has departed from the Hastert Guideline a few times, including on votes on the fiscal cliff deal, the Violence Against Women Act, and on aide to victims of Hurricane Sandy. Boehner himself recently said, “it was never a rule.” And he’s right.

    So TOD has expressed dismay that David Sirota was on Chris Hayes. He was on with Martin today, also, and I noticed he’s working for Salon, which was where Glenn Greenwald worked until recently when he went to The Guardian.
    Joan Walsh generally represents Salon but I haven’t seen her lately. Maybe she is on vacation and mr. Sirota is filling in.
    We will see.

    LP, thanks for filling in for Chips during your family crisis. I mentioned before that the TOD community really feels your anxiety and apprehension; we are not heartless like the GOP “I-got-mine-jack” ruthless partisans.

    You mentioned before that you like to hear from the photographers’ perspective.

    Here’s a 10-minute that is sure to rip everyone’s heart to pieces. But it’s worth viewing (if you don’t mind crying):

    Photographer Shannon Stapleton was quoted in the tweet above. He also made these (paraphrased) comments in the video:

    “I covered three shootings in the last year, so I know death, despair and destruction…”

    “I went to four funerals for 8 year olds [sic] in two days…”

    How could any lawmaker who sees this vote against gun safety?

  31. April 12, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    Speaking of Gun Safety legislation, it looks like a looooooong haul (weeks, maybe months?).

    According to this article, Reid will allow red-state Dems such as Landrieu and Baucus to vote against the Assault Weapon Ban and the corresponding ban against high-capacity magazines amendment.

    These Dems can then campaign as “pro-gun” for 2014.

    Here’s a list of red and purple state Dem Senators up for re-election in 2014 (I’ve excluded Senators from blue states up for re-election):

    RED STATES
    AK Mark Begich
    AR Mark Pryor
    LA Mary Landrieu
    MT Max Baucus
    NC Kay Hagan

    PURPLE STATES
    CO Mark Udall
    NM Tom Udall

    Illinois, South Dakota and West Viriginia Dem seats are up for grabs too, but Tom Harkin and Tim Johnson have already announced that they’re not seeking re-election.

    A Tennessee lawmaker has relented and agreed to drop his bill linking academic performance to the family’s welfare benefits after an 8-year-old girl shamed him by following him around the state Capitol.

    On his way to vote on Thursday, state Sen. Stacey Campfield (R) was confronted by 8-year-old homeschooler Aamira Fetuga, who presented him with a petition signed by people opposing his welfare bill, according to the Tennessean. Nearby, a choir of about 60 activists sang “Jesus Loves the Little Children.”

    “MY MIND IS MADE UP – DON’T CONFUSE ME WITH FACTS.”

    Daily Kos: A case study in epistemic closure

    By Smartypants

    ——————————————-

    Like many pragmatic progressives who blog, I used to spend most of my time online at Daily Kos. Many of us quit writing there at about the same time. I know that for me the final straw was getting attacked – even by those I generally agreed with – for poking some questions at what had become conventional wisdom there.

    Ever since Barack Obama’s rise in national politics, Daily Kos has had mixed reactions to him. But there are times it has gotten ugly. Lately its the worst I’ve seen it. Since the day it was announced that President Obama would include chained CPI in his budget, the place has become a case study in what Julian Sanchez calls epistemic closure. Sanchez used the term to talk about modern-day conservatives. But listen to his description and then we’ll see how it applies at Daily Kos these days.

That would explain why the DC/NY media work over time to deny any credit to pres Obama. Last week….they were gleeful on the opposition to Gun Safety calling it DOA. Today, they flip 180 and give the credit exclusively to the Newtown bereaved Citizens……I take nothing away from them……however, I also take nothing away from POTUS too.

    They’re afraid of the government. They’re afraid of the president, they’re afraid of congress, they’re afraid of the judges. They’re afraid of socialism. They’re afraid of Nazis and communists. They’re afraid of liberals and progressives and RINOs and feminists and Prius-driving vegetarians. They’re afraid of their neighbors. They’re afraid of the North and afraid of the South and afraid of people from Chicago, and New York and Washington D.C. and California. They’re afraid of gangs and crime and terrorism. They’re afraid of know-it-all college educated long hairs. They’re afraid of political correctness and affirmative action. They’re afraid of minorities and they’re afraid of immigrants and they’re afraid of uppity blacks and strong-willed women and smart Asians and dirty Latinos and murderous Muslims. They fear their own supposedly loving God and they’re afraid of everybody else’s deity too. They’re afraid of the Rapture and the Anti-Christ and the End Times. They’re afraid of Sharia Law and they’re afraid of the Pope and afraid of the Jews – and yet they’re afraid of atheists too. They’re afraid of immorality and pornography and the internet and cable TV and that Rock&Roll music. They’re afraid of social media, they’re afraid of Twitter and Facebook and the bloggers and the Goddamned lamestream media. They’re afraid the military might just take over and they’re afraid that the military isn’t powerful enough. They’re afraid of death and afraid of taxes. They’re afraid of science, of evolution and climate models and plate tectonics and carbon dating and sex education. They’re afraid of abortion and birth control and the morning after pill, but at the same time they’re also afraid people might be having sex and they’re afraid “those” people might be having a whole bunch of welfare babies that they’re afraid they’ll have to pay for. They’re afraid of North Korea and China and the long defunct Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. They’re afraid that somebody might be coming to take all their guns and they’re afraid of all the crazy people with guns and they’re afraid that the government has too many guns. They’re afraid of being poor but they’re afraid of the rich too. They’re afraid of the Bilderbergs and the Illuminati and the New World Order. They’re afraid of the the banksters and yet they’re deathly afraid of any laws that might restrict those self same power brokers. They’re afraid of losing their entitlements and they’re afraid the undeserving want entitlements too and more than anything they’re afraid that somebody somewhere might be getting something for nothing on the taxpayer dime, but they’re afraid of making those same “takers” pay for their own healthcare. They’re afraid of chemicals in their food and genetically engineered crops, but they’re afraid of laws requiring that those same ingredients be fully disclosed by food producers because they’re afraid that might be bad for business. They’re afraid of obesity and heart disease and that our kids are a generation of blubbery little couch potatoes, but they’re afraid of Mayor Bloomberg and Michelle Obama. They’re afraid of Hollywood violence and yet they’re also afraid that Sesame Street might be making their kids into prancing pacifist pisswillies. They’re afraid we’ll run out of oil or that some America hating dictator somewhere will cut the oil off – and yet at the same time they’re afraid of solar panels and wind towers and electric cars.

    What it comes down to is this: they’re afraid of the past and they’re afraid of the present and they’re afraid for the future.

    FIRST BOX OFFICE: ’42′ Overperforming

    Now that schoolkids and colleges are back in class, the domestic box office has understandably cooled. My sources estimate that Legendary Pictures/Warner Bros‘ Jackie Robinson biopic 42 (3,003 theaters) is looking at $7M-$8M today and perhaps $21M-$24M for the weekend. “Just watching the film’s box growing at a rapid pace all day,” a Warner Bros exec gushes. “Great news for Thomas Tull and his team at Legendary.” (Question still remains whether financier/filmmaker Tull will move his Legendary from Warner Bros.) Pic is nicely overperforming tracking which was in the mid-teens for an original movie about race and baseball with no hot stars. And Sunday is Jackie Robinson Day.

    My little tweet up top about GOP now being pro-criminal, pro-terrorist and anti-law enforcement aprty has triggered an interesting string of exchanges with a Fox news viewer. At least I have to assume he is a Fox News viewer. He seems to be all hung up on Fast and Furious and sales of weaponry to the Muslim Brotherhood. Apparently he can’t distinguish between a country and a ruling party. And the MB isn’t even considered a terorist organization. And he apparently doesn’t realize that the guns that went to Mexico were bought legally and then given to the drug cartels d/t fact that the GOP prevented, and is still preventing laws that woudl make those transactions illegal. And he hasn’t responded to my statement about the GOP cutting funding for law nforcement. I might do a couple more tweet with him and then stop

      Well, that is over. Last tweet from him just said I was too stupid to debate with so goodbye. That is always the refuge of a person that doesn’t have facts on his side. I responded that I know it is hard to debate against the facts but he gave it a good try.

    In a small town in northwestern Nevada, America’s first commercial, grid-connected enhanced geothermal system (EGS) is up and running.

    The new 1.7 megawatt “Desert Peak 2” EGS installation, harnesses the boundless supply of heat found thousands of feet below the earth’s surface to generate clean, renewable electricity. The project is being led by Ormat Technologies.

    While a largely untapped resource, EGS could play a critical role in America’s energy future. Whereas traditional geothermal systems are largely limited to deployment in the western United States, EGS can be deployed all across America – extending geothermal’s overall reach. Geologists estimate EGS can supply more than 100 GW in the U.S. alone — a 40-fold increase over present geothermal power capacity.

    To deploy EGS, production wells are drilled to depths of 10,000 feet and beyond to access the hot rock that makes up the earth’s crust. Under carefully controlled conditions, pressurized water is injected into the wells to open pre-existing fractures along the surface of the rock – creating permeability. This increased permeability allows the water to flow through the openings in the rock – capturing the rock’s heat. The heated water is then pumped back to the surface and the resulting steam is used to power a turbine to generate electricity. The water is cooled back into a liquid and injected back into the ground to repeat the cycle again in a closed loop system. Learn more about the process by taking a look at our new Geothermal 101 Infographic.

    A bullshit AP story is hitting the Coal carbon capture plant being built in Illinois.
    It’s funded by the 09 stimulus and slated to be finished in 2017, the report basically says natural gas is better, so we should get rid of it and it wil cost to much.
    Dick Durbin is Livid, and he pushed back hard against the report, so did the Dept of Energy.
    I find it all very suspicious, this so called Report?

    Looking forward to tomorrow. We’re going to see our grandkids. We haven’t seen them since Dec 27 when they came here, a month after my husband’s pacemaker implant. He now is feeling so much better he’s ready for the trip to Dallas. I’m excited to see them, and for them to see the VAST improvement in their grandpa. To me he is a living walking miracle of modern medicine. I am so thankful for all the advances our researchers and scientists have made.
    Anyway, this grandma is going to be reveling in three grandkiddies tomorrow….and we’re also going to get to see the new house they’ve bought. See you all Sunday evening or Monday. Everyone else please have a great weekend.
    LP, I am encouraged by word of your father. Remember you are in all of our prayers.

    This seems like a BS report that DOE and Senstor Durbin is hitting back at-

    http://thehill.com/blogs/e2-wire/e2-wire/293655-report-federal-clean-coal-power-project-faces-uncertain-future

    Notice instead if carbon capture, this report endorses natural gas. Seems awfully suspicious.
    Thoughts?
