Happy Ending? Filner Bargaining for Kind Release

I'm playing hooky today because I'm drag-butt tired. The cobs may have some stuff for you. Otherwise I'll mostly just post some open blogs.

Eighty-one percent of San Diegans want Bob Filner to resign. There's chatter -- rumor only; maybe just speculation --that he's bargaining with Democrats to either stay on or negotiate some kind of graceful exit. I can't imagine what he'd think he'd get in return -- does he think some liberal think tank is going to hire him?

It's important for Democrats to get him out of office because at that point, the all-but-nonexistence media interest in the story goes away completely. Note that Mark Foley's resignation did not stop the media from continuing to question who might have aided and abetted him over the years -- but we'll see no such questions from the partisan Democratic newsletter we call the media. We haven't seen them as pressure builds on Filner, and we certainly won't see them after the pressure has been released.

Yup: I've been hearing this for a week but now it's being reported-- Filner is in mediation that may include his resignation.


As Rufus T. Firefly quipped, maybe he's bargaining for a Happy Ending.

After Fox Sports tried to negotiate with ATT Uverse over the rights to *some* of the cardinals games, I got pissed at the providers too.
Yes, that's right, ATT paid for the right to FSN, but FSN, wanted more money for 11 cards games they picked up from a local station right before the season.
So we had selective blackouts.
Frankly such a thing should not be possible, either you get a station or you don't. (Blackouts enforced by the MLB at least apply to everyone not selective providers.)

So fuck 'em all I say.

Obviously the demonrats were actively covering up for this freak for who knows how long. But this is what I want to know, how piss poor is our sides opposition research whereby a serial harasser can do this for as long as he did and only the donks knew about it? This dude was in congress for two decades, that's a lot of re-election campaigns. Am I to believe that the dems were THAT GOOD at covering up this debacle? Inquiring minds want to know.

When we moved in, I hooked up the TV to the Coax while we waited for the UVerse installer.
Turns out there's absolutely nothing connected to said coax all I got was static.
I have a TV with a digital tuner, but I guess without any antenna at all, you can't get a digital channel, I even ran an extra long Coax trying to use it as an antenna, but apparently that trick doesn't work anymore.

Fort Hood Judge Bars Most Motive Evidence

CBS-DFW: http://tinyurl.com/l49q2qg


FORT HOOD (AP) - The judge overseeing the Fort Hood shooting trial blocked prosecutors on Monday from using several witnesses and most evidence they had sought to explain the alleged motive behind the 2009 attack.

Prosecutors had asked the military judge to approve evidence and several witnesses to explain the mindset of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who is accused of killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 others at the Texas military base in November 2009. But the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, blocked nearly all of it...

She describes it as the Weight Watchers of gyms. She did WW way back in the day- went to the meetings, got the "key" for meeting her goal, all that. She says Curves is much the same- you get rewarded with little gee-gaws for doing X time on a given machine, for example.

Not being female, I can't speak from first hand experience, of course.

63 I'd like to recommend an excellent book to the horde: Douglas Preston's CITIES OF GOLD.

It's a true-life outdoor adventure tale in which Preston and a photographer follow the trail of Coronado across the deserts of Arizona and New Mexico, on horseback.

Why would conservatives like it? It concerns survivalism, rugged individualism, the snatching of public lands by Big Government, the misguided efforts of the eco tree-huggers, and the loss of freedom in the once Wild West, among other things.

It's also a ripping, riveting and often harrowing adventure tale. I honestly could not put it down, and as I got towards the end, I was sad that it was almost over. I just wanted it to go on and on.

The book has no pictures, but Preston has a Facebook page up with tons of photos. Just type "Douglas Preston Cities of Gold" in the FB search box.

Well, I'm no mind-reader, but the blogsensus has been that the Brass has spent the whole time trying to cover up the fact that They Saw This Coming And Did Nothing.

That and given the confession they probably feel like they can shorten up the trial without all that messy evidence crap.

Supposedly my satellite was only $50/month but I am billed $87 after they add in all the fed, State, and local taxes. That is for the "middle tier" package with high definition.


I could drop to the lowest tier which would cut it back about $25 but all those taxes would still be there. So what I tried to do was rig an internal antenna so I could drop ALL of it. Couldn't pick up a damn thing despite the fact that I can get about 10 stations upstairs with an internal antenna.

Prosecutors had asked the military judge to approve evidence and several
witnesses to explain the mindset of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who is accused of
killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 others at the Texas
military base in November 2009. But the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, blocked
nearly all of it...

Posted by: The Stupid Hurts at August 19, 2013 02:35 PM (oDCMR)

85 So, since there is no topic here, I'm going off topic....

I need advice... say you have a SO that you complain to about mundane shit like someone playing emails at work with music in the background that is really annoying or you complain that they put out a shitload of leftover mozzarella sticks in the cafeteria and you just want to eat them. I truly mean stuff that you would just bitch about.... not really expecting a solution or anything....just some validation...and they always come back with "You should really learn to accept people's ways at work and ignore it," or "Well, if you'd work out this week, you wouldn't feel guilty about eating cheesesticks." It just really bothers me when this person does this sometimes, but not all the time. When they complain about their job or bullshit in life to me, I validate their feelings, join in on the bitching, laugh about it and move on. I know I can't fix their workplace or how their relatives treat them, but I can certainly commiserate and relate. I sometimes feel like I'm being treated like a child who has no adult capacity to handle these situations (as if they need handled in the first place). I know that I can't do jack shit about the email music and I need to ignore it or I can resist the mozzarella sticks and I'm only bitching about the temptation....etc etc etc

How should I handle this?

They're "projecting" my bill to be $103 now after the taxes, which would seem to imply a $13 increase in the taxes. We'll have to see, experience tells me ATT often over projects taxes in the first "Sample" bill, I suspect I'll be paying less than $100.

101 How should I handle this?

Decide if you can accept it or not. It's not going to change. I'm the "fix the situation" person between my wife and me- she wants (and gives) emotional validation and such, I want (and give) solutions.

Usually we remember to ask each other, "Okay, do you want an answer, or am I just supposed to feel bad for you?" (yes, really, in those words), and proceed based on that. Sometimes we forget, and just revert to form.

Communication is the key. When your SO is all "well here's how you fix it," you *can* simply say, "Look, all I really need is to vent. I can come up with solutions on my own, I just need some sympathy." If the relationship is good (which requires good communication in the first place) your SO will understand and provide what you're looking for.

It's how people are.

102 Despite 81% of San Diego residents wanting Filner to resign, this morning a group of ideologues held a rally in support of Filner in San Diego. Their primary argument is that Filner is being denied 'due process' because these are only the 'accusations' of 16 women - and Filner is entitled to 'due process' because of his loyalty and efforts pushing the progressive agenda.

If one ever wondered how / why totalitarian regimes like the Nazi's or Italy's Fascists ever gained power - it's from the same mindset as demonstrated by those who rallied in support of Filner.... it's all about party / ideological loyalty - and anything else is immaterial.

It's why they are morally and intellectually bankrupt.

Whatever's running in my basement looks old as shit.
Of course the Coax wiring for the cable in this house is a hot mess. They put a splitter outside my house, ran a cable up the outside wall (not even under the siding) and into a random bedroom upstairs (not even the master, just a random bedroom. Then they ran it into the house at ground level too, we think that's what's going into the basement, but we're not sure.
There's another splitter in the basement, one of those runs over to the front room (which we're using as a TV room.) the other part of it goes...well we haven't found it yet. (Seriously it disappears up a wall and we can't find where it comes out.)

Uverse runs on a Cat5 anyway, so we had them run that along the side of the house because our TV is on a different wall than the Coax jack in the front room. I kinda wish I hadn't done that, because the cable keeps falling and looks ugly.

I have found that what most women want is a nice tight hug or headlock with a big sloppy open mouth kiss and your hand down their shirt and/or pants to help them feel more secure in the communications part of the relationship.

I don't get it, why do I need a separate app to play Netflix on my xbox, there's already a Netflix app? And a Hulu app.

Ever listened to Dennis Prager's radio show? He weekly has hours devoted to this kind of relationship stuff and he and his audience are intuitive. Lots of his stuff on youtube too and he has a website.

Enough to say, your frustration is one of the ages. The Mars/Venus thing of the famous book. A lot of times people act in ways they aren't even aware of and sometimes they are aware and relish playing games. Good luck and hang in there.

? An HDMI cable is more or less flat.
VGA is technically capable of Hi-Def, but not digital (which does have some effect and likely partially due to what Vic was seeing.)
Also laptops have a) crappy video cards and b) crappy VGA output jacks (which I find cause a lot of blur from signal distortion, due to the "not digital" thing mentioned above.)

Israel is working closer with Egyptian forces to fight militants in Sinai even as top ally U.S. weighs cutting aid to Egypt over a crackdown against Islamists that has killed almost 1,000, former diplomats and officials said.

As the US and Western Europe try to undercut the Egyptian Military, Israel grows closer to them. Strange world we live in ha?

199 The most comfortable experience I ever had at a gym was at a Cardiac Rehabilitation Center connected to a hospital. I went there because i was sent there by my cardiologist after surgery to repair as hole between chambers of my heart-a congentital defect not caught for decades after my birth. Everybody there had either had a heart attack or heart surgery and the average age was about 55. Everybody was working hard to get fit not get buffed ,I think . The price was quite reasonable and unlike a normal gym it was staffed by cardiac nurses and since it was in a hospital you didn't have to worry if you started having chest pains or shortness of breath -which I never did-but they checked your BP before and after the workout

a male Curves, in that it was geared to flabby old bastards like me who
didn't want to be ashamed of themselves in front of the Hanses and
Franzes pumping themselves up. But I've never seen one.


Try the guy at different times. I started going in the morning to get away from the 17-25 year olds who have no concept they're not the only people there. One guy I always used to see there would chant/rap along with him "music" loud enough to be heard clearly 20ft away. Other guys would do circuits on three or four different benches "reserving" each one. So you'd end up with a pissed-off gym rat telling you he was "using" a bench even if it'd be ten minutes until he got back to that one.

Find an upstairs closet and punch a hole through the drywall into the overhead add an external roof antenna and use a roof air duct to run a cable into the attic spaces, then drill a hole through the ceiling of the lower level and route the cable wherever it needs to be.

211 This is amazing. The US is creating a gangbang-of-convenience in the Mideast between our erstwhile allies who are otherwise anathema to one another - because our head (of state) is so firmly up our national ass that he and his administration cannot recognize the difference between civil society and elections.

I mean, it would be a very good thing for regional peace if the Israelis, Egyptians, and Saudis made lasting common cause, though to make it stick there's a whole lot of other peoples in the area who would suffer (not that most of them don't deserve it.)

But it doesn't say much for our ability to exert our influence...
