Olivia and Brett’s living situation, why I think it’s a big deal too.

2020.09.25 15:15 dustybutt2012 Olivia and Brett’s living situation, why I think it’s a big deal too.

I just want to give other some viewers perspective on neighborhoods in New Orleans and why settling on that is a much bigger deal. I saw a comment (somewhere) complaining that Olivia having a 30 min commute isn’t a big deal and she should get over it.
It’s been said before, but New Orleans is small. Each neighborhood/Parish has its own personality, and even one neighborhood over could mean a very big transition. Olivia is a Nurse Practitioner. So, she either works at one of the big hospitals or a doctor’s office. Touro and Oschner Baptist are both Uptown along with a ton of doctors’ offices. Big Oschner is in Jefferson Parish, but close to the parish line by Carrollton. Olivia seems like she would live and enjoy Uptown. So any of these places were talking a 5-10...mayyyyybe 15 min commute. Plus, Uptown is SO walkable. There are a ton of amazing restaurants, you have Audubon Park. There is a lot to do.
Brett bought his house on what sounds like <100k salary. That really limits where you can find a house. It’s just not affordable to buy here. Between insurance costs and Orleans Parish taxes, and being he’s conservative with his money. Mid City a few years ago was affordable, and if that’s where he bought then Olivia is being a little bratty, as it’s a great neighborhood. However, Gentilly is probably one of the more affordable neighborhoods. You get more property but it’s more family friendly. It’s also a bit of a food desert and isn’t very walkable. Other options are either Algiers or St. Bernard Parish. Both are on the side of the river. Going across the CCC (big bridge you see in the overhead shots) is a huge PITA especially in rush hour. He also may have bought in Metairie or Kenner, which is the definition of the burbs. When I lived Uptown, I called Metairie, “America.” All these places, with the exception of some of Algiers, you just don’t get the New Orleans vibe.
My boyfriend and I started dating he made it clear he’d never move into the city. He lived about 15 mins from downtown in Metairie. It took a year of us together for me to decide that he was worth giving up my very fun life in the city. I doubt it’s just about a 30 min commute. Olivia is from outside of Shreveport. I’m sure her living in New Orleans is intentional to be a part of the culture and actual city. I would put money on Brett’s house being in a part of the city where she wouldn’t get that on a daily basis.

2020.09.19 21:53 flyinmacaronimonster Absentee and In-Person Voting in Arkansas: A Detailed Guide to Voting in Jonesboro

NOTE: Craighead County has a drive-thru ballot drop off at [209 W Washington Ave, Jonesboro]*(,+Jonesboro,+AR+72401,+USA/@35.8384137,-90.7064134,15z/data=!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x87d4292537f4e04f:0x84a5b7b0dee0a108!2s209+W+Washington+Ave,+Jonesboro,+AR+72401,+USA!3b1!8m2!3d35.838263!4d-90.7063539!3m4!1s0x87d4292537f4e04f:0x84a5b7b0dee0a108!8m2!3d35.838263!4d-90.7063539)
*(ONLY OPEN DURING THE EARLY VOTING PERIOD [Monday, October 19-Monday, November 2]; as well, the Craighead County Election Commission at the Annex @ 315 W Jefferson Ave, Jonesboro will also be open during Early Voting for ballot drop-off)
CRAIGHEAD COUNTY CLERK (IN JONESBORO): Craighead County Courthouse (Jonesboro), 511 S Main St, Jonesboro, AR 72401
**NOTE: Because Craighead County has two county seats, and therefore two courthouses, be sure.
Hey people of Jonesboro!
Absentee voting starts this weekend, as absentee ballots are beginning to be mailed out to all registered voters who have requested one.
IMPORTANT NOTE: IF YOU HAVE AN INCONSISTENT OR BAD SIGNATURE, IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU VOTE IN-PERSON. Arkansas currently provides NO NOTIFICATION OR CURE PROCESS for mismatched signatures, so, if your signature doesn't match the one on file, you should assume that it be rejected outright, without your knowledge.
If you have already applied for an absentee ballot, and want to vote in-person, you will have to vote with a provisional ballot.
According to this document: (page 7)
"Upon delivery of an absentee ballot to an individual authorized to receive an absentee ballot, the county clerk shall mark the electronic voter registration record and the precinct voter registration list to indicate that an absentee ballot has been delivered to the voter under the procedures in this section. Any person to whom an absentee ballot is delivered according to the precinct voter registration list, but who chooses to vote by early voting or to vote at his or her polling site on election day, shall be permitted to cast a provisional ballot at the poll."
If you have not registered to vote yet, please do so as soon as possible. Arkansas does not have online voter registration, so either fill out a registration form online and send it in as soon as possible, or call your county clerk's office for your best options on how to register to vote (County Clerk's office listed at the top of the page).
Even if you have completed the process in terms of registering to vote, you will need to wait for your voter registration card to be mailed to you. Until you receive your card, you would have to assume that you are NOT registered until you actually get that card. So register right away if you can.
IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE that you may be able to pick up a voter registration card right away if you register to vote at your County Clerk's office. I AM NOT 100% SURE ABOUT THIS, so double check. If this is possible, this may be your best option, at least at this point of time, if you want to guarantee that you will be able to go vote in this Election.
The deadline for voter registration is Monday, October 5.
Whether or not you vote absentee or in-person, you will need a valid photo ID. Remember: YOU WILL NEED TO ATTACH A PHOTOCOPY OF A VALID FORM OF PHOTO ID TO YOUR BALLOT (NOT THE BALLOT REQUEST, BUT RATHER WITH THE BALLOT ITSELF).
Keep in mind that your ID needs to be current as of November 3, 2016, as your ID can be expired no more than 4 years to the date of the upcoming Election. If you need to update your driver's license or other photo ID, you should do so as soon as possible.
Valid ID can be found on page 5 of the pocket guide.
If you are voting absentee-by-mail, then, once you have requested and then subsequently received your ballot, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, fill in your ballot, and then SIGN IN THE CORRECT PLACE. Also remember: YOU MUST ATTACH A PHOTOCOPY OF A VALID PHOTO ID WITH YOUR BALLOT. If you do not have a copier, you can go to the library, or go to a place like Staples, or use a friend or neighbor's copier if they allow you to use it, in order to get your ID copied.
Once you are done, you should hand-deliver it to your county clerk's office to 100% guarantee that it will be received on time (locations listed at the top of the page).
Ballots need to be received by end of business day on the day BEFORE Election Day (Monday, November 2). WHEN DROPPING OFF YOUR BALLOT, DON'T FORGET YOUR PHOTO ID. You will need to show it to the clerk's office when dropping off your ballot.
YOU, AND ONLY YOU, can drop off your ballot, unless you are "a patient in a hospital, long-term-care facility, or residential care facility licensed by the state," according to the Pocket Guide (link down below). If you are confined to your residence but are not in that category, mail it back as soon as you can, or, if you want to risk it, hand-deliver it to the clerk's office at a time that is less busy.
Before going to the polls, make sure you have proper photo ID. Proper photo ID can be found on page 5 of the pocket guide:
If you are voting in-person, early voting starts on Monday, October 19, and ends on Monday, November 2.
CRAIGHEAD COUNTY EARLY VOTING: at both the Jonesboro and Lake City Courthouses
You may also vote in-person on Election Day at your polling precinct.

2020.09.18 20:52 flyinmacaronimonster Virginia is for Voters: A Highly Detailed Guide to Voting in Northern Virginia

**EDIT: Added Stafford County and Fredericksburg
**EDIT 2:
If you have already requested an absentee ballot but want to vote in-person before receiving your ballot, you will have to vote with a provisional ballot. Voting provisionally is something that you would want to avoid unless necessary. So, if you have already requested your ballot by mail, it is HIGHLY recommended that you wait for your ballot to be mailed to you, and then drop it off in person.
Hey Virginians!
Today's the day! VOTING STARTS RIGHT NOW. Yes! You can vote now! Both absentee in-person voting and absentee voting-by-mail starts today, Friday, September 18. EARLY VOTING IS AVAILABLE UNTIL SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31. All locations will close on this date, and not earlier.
If you have not registered to vote yet, please do so. THE VOTER REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS MONDAY, OCTOBER 12, so please register to vote if you haven't done so yet.
You can register to vote using this link:
Make sure you have proper Identification:
If you are choosing to vote-by-mail instead of in-person, request a ballot, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, fill in your ballot and MAKE SURE TO SIGN IT IN THE CORRECT PLACE. Please note that a witness signature is NOT required for this election.
For Northern Virginia, I would like to say that, in all honesty, the drop-box situation is quite patchwork. When drop-boxes were first announced, I thought there would be like one of these in every City and County:
Upon doing more research, I realized that the drop-box situation, not just in Northern Virginia, but also across the commonwealth of Virginia inconsistent.
Some places have those types of drop boxes available (not necessarily that size, but like that kind of drop-box), and some don't. It all just varies.
So, I will break it down by city and county in Northern Virginia
I will be detailing the following counties and cities:
Alexandria (city)
Arlington (county)
Fairfax (county)

Falls Church (city)
Fredericksburg (city)

2020.09.18 18:22 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 2 - Los Angeles Rams (1-0) at Philadelphia Eagles(0-1)

Los Angeles Rams (1-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (0-1)
The 2020 Philadelphia Eagles season didn’t have the start they were looking for week 1 as they opened the season without their starting LT, RT, RG, RB, DT and WR and struggled against the Washington Football team to open their season with a loss. Luckily they will get two of those starters back this week in running back Miles Sanders and RT Lane Johnson. Both will be welcome additions as the Eagles struggled to block anyone against the Football Team both on the line and from the running back position. Additionally, getting a running game going will greatly help slow the pass rush which will be impressive as the Rams posted one of the best pressure rates last week led by All-Pro Aaron Donald. Hopefully Doug Pederson learns from his mistakes of last week and gets Carson moving with some designed rollouts and mixes up his play-calling more to establish the run. If Doug tries to do the same thing as last week it will be a long day for Carson and Donald will feast. On the other side of the ball, Schwartz had Slay follow McLaurin last week and it worked as Slay shut McLaurin down, but that is more difficult this week as the Rams have two talented receivers in Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. The Eagles will need to see how Maddox holds up on the outside with a bigger challenge this week. With the struggles of the Eagles offense and their injuries on that side of the ball, the Eagles will need their defenses to limit the quick scoring Rams offense or it will be a long day. Should be a good test for the Eagles to rebound after falling flat out of the gate last week. Go Birds!

Eagles 30 - Rams 23
Nick Foles filled in for the injured Carson Wentz, taking up his spot under center after three months without game action. Foles promptly recaptured the magic, passing for 270 yards and confidently leading the Eagles to a 30-23 win over the Rams on Sunday night with plenty of help from his defense and his playmakers. Foles got plenty of help from his running game as Wendell Smallwood rushed for two touchdowns and rookie Josh Adams ran for another score as the Eagles (7-7) kept their playoff hopes quite viable with a gritty victory over the Rams (11-3), who lost consecutive regular-season games for the first time in coach Sean McVay's tenure.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - In a near-reversal of the previous season's opener, the Eagles scored the first 17 points, only for the Washington Football Team to then shut their offense out for the remainder of the afternoon. Meanwhile, Washington's offense scored 27 unanswered points, and the defense sacked Carson Wentz eight times, recorded two interceptions, and forced three fumbles. With the loss, Philadelphia's six-game winning streak against Washington was snapped dating back to Week 14 of the 2016 season, and the Eagles lost the first game of the season since 2015.
Rams - Playing their first game ever in their brand-new home at SoFi Stadium, the Rams held off the Cowboys in a close battle of NFC contenders. Receiving the opening kickoff (from former Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein), Los Angeles drove 75 yards in seven plays, with Malcolm Brown scoring the new stadium's first touchdown on a 1-yard run. Rookie kicker Samuel Sloman missed on his first field goal attempt, a 29-yard try that bounced off the left upright near the end of the first quarter, but later was successful on field goals of 35 and 31 yards in the second quarter. However, Dallas took a 14-13 halftime lead as Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott scored on both a touchdown run and a touchdown reception. The Rams reclaimed the lead as Malcolm Brown (who finished with a team-high 18 rushes for 79 yards) scored his second touchdown of the game on a 2-yard run midway through the third quarter to put Los Angeles ahead 20-14. Zuerlein converted a 33-yard field goal late in the third quarter, but it would be as close as the Cowboys would get. Rookie safety Jordan Fuller led the Rams with eight total tackles, including a key tackle of Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb on a fourth-and-3 play at the Rams' 9-yard line, just one yard short of a first down to kill a Dallas scoring drive.
Rams QB Jared Goff and Eagles QB Carson Wentz were selected 1st and 2nd in the 2016 NFL draft after both teams traded up.
Eagles S Rodney McLeod played for the Rams from 2012-16.

Philadelphia has produced a 22-19-1 (.536) record in the all-time series vs. Los Angeles. The Eagles own a 6-game winning streak against the Rams, scoring 30+ points in 5 straight contests.
Philadelphia is 15-8 (.652) in home games vs. Los Angeles, with victories in each of the last 2 such meetings (last: W, 34-28 on 10/5/14 at Lincoln Financial Field).
The Eagles are 23-9 (.719) at home in the regular season under head coach Doug Pederson, which marks the 5th-best home winning percentage in the NFL since 2016, trailing only New En-gland (.818, 27-6), Baltimore (.758, 25-8), Kansas City (.758, 25-8) and New Orleans (.727, 24-9).
Philadelphia has captured all 4 of its home openers with Doug Pederson at the helm (since 2016). Pederson is one of only two head coaches in Eagles history to win each of their first 4 home openers with the team, joining Joe Kuharich (1964-67).
In Week 1 at Washington, Philadelphia allowed only 239 total yards (80 rushing, 5th; 159 passing, 3rd), which were the fewest by any defense in the NFL during kickoff weekend. The Eagles limited Washington to just 27.8% (5-of-18) on third downs, which was also the 5th-best mark in the league.

Stats to Know
Pressure Rate
It doesn’t take advanced stats to know that Wentz spent most of Sunday under significant pressure. Washington sacked him eight times behind a makeshift offensive line that struggled to contain the Football Team’s pass rush. The Eagles allowed a 34% pressure rate Sunday, according to ESPN Next Gen Stats. That was the third-worst in the NFL. Five different Washington players generated at least four pressures. And it doesn’t get any easier against the Rams. The Cowboys allowed a 40.5% pressure rate Sunday night in their loss to the Rams, which was the second-worst mark of Week 1. And a big reason for that was Rams star Aaron Donald. Donald — the six-time Pro Bowler, five-time All-Pro and two-time AP Defensive Player of the Year who has 44 sacks over the past three seasons — posted a 28.6% pressure rate on Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott himself. He pressured Prescott 10 times for 35 pass rushes and finished with four tackles, one sack, one tackle for loss and four quarterback hits. According to Next Gen Stats, Donald’s pressure rate over the past three seasons is 13.5%, 13.9% and 14.6%. The Eagles offensive line is going to have to be ready or it is going to be another long Sunday for Carson Wentz.
Matchups to Watch
Carson Wentz vs. Himself
I note this matchup not to downplay the Rams and what they bring to the table, but to note that Wentz had plenty of mistakes that ultimately cost us the week 1 matchup. Change nothing of the game last week, bad OL, questionable scheming especially in the second half, Carson Wentz playing better wins us the game. Things were bad around him and he actively made them worse at times. These two things can be true: Wentz cost us the week 1 game and he should bounce back because he is a really good QB. This isn't the sky is falling, #TankForTrevor blurb, it's simply acknowledging the biggest change from week 1 to week 2 that would aid in a victory - Carson Wentz returning to form. There was also a lot of good last week, namely the first half! Check out the first TD throw to Ertz. Short, compressed field where he needs to make a snap decision and he comes off his first read (JJAW) and hits Ertz for 6. This is a great play by Wentz where he showed how good he is capping off a great drive. We need more of this consistency. Wentz was even missing on staples of the offense. He was erratic in the pocket and regularly off target. I love hero ball, I hate when QBs play scared, but better urgency and avoiding negative plays in the pocket would go a long way in smoothing out the rough edges of his game. It's infuriating to have some of the same issues he had in year 3 continue in year 5. Regardless, Wentz is a really good QB, so he should be expected to bounce back from a bad game every QB has once in a while. It just needs to happen quickly so the Eagles don't fall behind in the young season. This Rams secondary has a phenomenal CB in Jalen Ramsey and a really good young safety in John Johnson III; they aren't slouches. Wentz needs to be better and it would be surprising if he isn't.
Eagles (downright) Offensive Line vs. Aaron Donald and the Rams Pass Rush
Washington may have a better, deeper defensive line but they don't have Aaron Donald. He is so good he lifts a pass rush up to the top tiers of the league on his own given his dominance and versatility. Donald isn't just a Defensive Tackle; he'll line up inside and outside while wrecking every part of the OL he can along the way. Just look at what Baldy has in his review for him this week. This is a problematic matchup for Philly given their patchwork offensive line. Even though there were positive things some of the new guys did, they made a lot of mistakes, and will continue to do so in their young careers. The last time the Eagles played the Rams in 2018, Philly held Donald to 2 total pressures in probably his most ineffective game during the course of his DPOY season. The difference between that Eagles OL and this one is the health. Philly won't have a healthy Brandon Brooks; while they'll have Lane Johnson again it'll be in his first start of the season, he's coming off a late summer ankle procedure. So his effectiveness is still TBD. JP, who also played in that game, has also declined a considerable amount since then. One player returning to the field Sunday that should also give the Eagles a boost in pass protection is Miles Sanders. Not only is Sanders the best runner on the team, he's also the best pass blocking running back on the team. This alone won't stop Donald, but it should help. This defensive front from the Rams can get pushed around in the run game (more on that later) but can absolutely get after it in the pass rush department. Dallas doesn't have the line it used to either and Dak was under pressure at a roughly 42% rate, among the worst in week 1. The return of Lane Johnson should increase the effectiveness of this OL a considerable amount but given the new parts there will still be an adjustment period. This unit needs to come together quickly and the coaching staff needs to actually focus their game plan on helping their OL much more so than they did in week 1. Otherwise, expect Donald and his homies to bring the pain up front.
Eagles Pass Rush vs Rams OL
Even with some of the sustained injuries on this roster, the Eagles still have a formidable pass rush and flashed it quite a bit in week 1. The box score stats are highly deceiving in this area as Washington shifted their game plan quite a bit as the game went along. Philly pressured Haskins at a 30% clip last week. That number isn't great considering the state of Washington's offensive line. However, Haskins had the quickest time to throw in the NFL in week 1 with an average time to throw of 2.13 seconds. It's extremely difficult to pressure QBs when they get the ball out that quickly. Last week, Jared Goff was 8th in the NFL in this category, which will present some challenges for the Eagles. Dallas pressured Goff at a 20% clip last week, which is a horrendous number. Goff is a good QB and will slice you up if you don't get to him. But when you do, oftentimes he's effectively standing in quick sand as he was a bottom 8 QB under pressure (by Rating) in 2019. It's imperative this defensive front plays well this week. We already saw Malik Jackson return to form, now we need Fletcher Cox. Philly should get Brandon Graham (concussion) and Derek Barnett (hammy) back this week which should increase the effectiveness of the pass rush. Josh Sweat has also shown tremendous growth in year 3 having the best game of his career this past Sunday with TY McGill flashing in limited snaps. This offensive line from the Rams underwent a mini make-over this offseason but still has some question marks up front. This will be a real test for them as the Eagles pass rush is much more formidable than the one Dallas offers. Furthermore, this is a defensive staff that has consistently gotten to Goff of late. Given the changes on both squads, this is a good measuring stick game in the trenches.
Eagles Coverage vs Rams Receivers
Jim Schwartz had Sean McVay's number in their most recent matchup in 2018 so I am curious to see who gets the upper hand this time around. The Rams have a really good WR room with Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson, and Josh Reynolds. They also have a good tight end in Tyler Higbee. Philly has their work cut out for them this week as the Rams are much deeper than Washington. The Rams passing attack was predicated on the short, quick game with a lot of motions and play action last week. Carson Wentz led the NFL in Average Intended Air Yards while Jared Goff was last. Goff's Average Intended Air Yards were 4.3 per attempt with roughly half his passing attempts coming within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage. Getting the ball to Goff's first read and out of his hands quickly is key as he can be an adventure when he is forced to hold onto the ball. McVay is really good at disguising what the Rams will do running multiple plays out of similar looks. Lastly, their receivers are great at getting quick separation and great getting yards after the catch. The defensive game plan for Philly in the secondary should look quite different this week than it did last week. There isn't one receiver the Eagles can key on for Slay to take away. I'd bet Schwartz moves him around quite a bit but with Woods as the primary recipient of special attention. Slay looked every bit as good as you'd expect last week and that's a huge addition to this secondary. One area of concern I have for Philly is the middle of the defense. This Eagles LB group is among the worst in the NFL in coverage; McVay is going to look to attack that relentlessly all game long. He did the same thing to Dallas last week. It was encouraging to see Rodney McLeod bounce back after a poor 2019 as he was every bit as spry as he once was. The rest of the middle of this defense leaves a lot to be desired. Either way, this is a deeper Rams receiving room, with a creative play-caller, and a better passer than the Eagles just faced. There was a lot of good to take from the defensive performance last week but they face a significant test Sunday in the Rams.

2020.09.17 17:30 flyinmacaronimonster Absentee and In-Person Voting in Green Bay

Hey Cheeseheads!
Election Season officially begins for you as absentee ballots start going out to all registered voters that have requested a ballot, starting today.
Before I go any further, if there is one key piece of advice for you if you are voting absentee, it's that you DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT, and instead drop it off. There is a genuinely good reason for this, and I will explain further down below.
If you have not registered to vote yet, please do so right now. You can do so using this link:
Wednesday, October 14 is the deadline to register to vote online and by mail. You can also register to vote in-person at your municipal clerk's office during business hours up until 5:00pm or end of business on Friday, October 30 (for City of Green Bay voters: 8am-4:30pm at City Hall @ 100 N Jefferson St in downtown Green Bay; may be by appointment only). If you live outside of the City of Green Bay, contact your municipal clerk's office for more details. As a special note, voters that live in the villages of Ashwaubenon, Allouez, Bellevue or Howard will need to refer to their own village clerk, and not the Green Bay City Clerk.
Wisconsin is also one of a few states that also allows for same-day voter registration on Election Day, so, if you have forgotten to register to vote by Friday, October 30, you can still register to vote at your polling place on Election Day, and then subsequently vote in-person.
IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT MACHINE HACKING, KEEP IN MIND THAT WISCONSIN DOES NOT USE VOTING MACHINES IN THEIR ELECTIONS AS OF 2020, EXCEPT FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, AND ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT THESE MACHINES WILL HAVE A PAPER TRAIL. In Brown County, ballot marking devices (a bit different than a voting "machine") will be used by people with disabilities, but for the majority of voters (i.e. ones without a disability), hand-marked paper ballots will be used.
If you are voting in-person or are a first-time absentee voter, or, if you are requesting an absentee ballot and have updated your name or address, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request. The reason why you need to show ID with an absentee ballot request if you have had a name or address change is because you essentially need to re-register, and every time you register or re-register to vote, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request.
In terms of Photo ID in general, Wisconsin has a very strict photo ID law. Most photo IDs (like a driver's license) need to be up to date as of November 6, 2018. If you need to update your driver's license or other photo ID, please do so now or as soon as possible. Some photo IDs must be unexpired, but most do not need to be.
Here's a site that explains the types of voter ID that are acceptable:
If you have registered to vote and have not requested an absentee ballot, request an absentee ballot if you would like. Again, remember: if you have never requested an absentee ballot in Wisconsin, or, if you have updated your name or address, you will need a photo ID to accompany your absentee ballot request.
Once you have requested and have received your absentee ballot, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, fill out your ballot, and then MAKE SURE TO SIGN YOUR NAME IN THE CORRECT PLACE. As well, YOU WILL NEED 1 SIGNATURE WITNESS to sign the envelope. A witness can be anybody over 18 who is not running for public office.
If you are worried about your ballot being rejected due to a mismatched signature, do not worry as they will not reject it outright without letting you know, and without giving you a chance to fix it, HOWEVER this process needs to be done before polls close (8:00pm CT) on Election Day. Because of this, please make sure to avoid dropping off your ballot on Election Day if possible, and instead drop it off earlier, and preferably as early as possible.
Once you have done all that DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT. The real reason why is because Wisconsin makes it incredibly easy to return your absentee ballot. Wisconsin, like Michigan, administers their elections New England-style. In other words, each municipality is basically in charge of administering the election.
So, your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk will be the ones sending out ballots, and your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk's office will be the ones that your ballot will ultimately need to be returned to. This makes it easier to drop off your ballot, as you will not need to go far to drop it off.
When sending back your ballot, it is important to note that you need to drop it off in the MUNICIPALITY that you are voting in, NOT in the county. For example, if you live in the City of Green Bay, you will need to drop it off within the city limits of Green Bay, and not anywhere else in Brown County.
In terms of dropping off your absentee ballot, there are 4 ways to do so:
(**NOTE: The following information will be for City of Green Bay residents only If you live outside of Green Bay city limits, refer to this guide for your individual city for drop off in your municipality:
Special Note: The Ashwaubenon drop-box is not open during business hours, and is only open until start of business on November 2.
1) Drop it off at a drop-box in your municipality
In the City of Green Bay, there will be 5 drop-boxes: at least 1 at City Hall @ 100 N Jefferson St (currently located behind city hall), and 5 at other locations around the city [TBD].
2) Hand-deliver it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
The City Clerk's office in Green Bay will be open from 8:30am-4:00pm MON-FRI at the City Hall @ 100 N Jefferson St through to Election Day for ballot drop off (THOUGH ACCESS MAY BE LIMITED AND MAY BE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY). Hours will likely be extended on Election Day. It is more recommended that you drop off your ballot off at one of the 5 drop-boxes instead.
3) Return to a polling site during the Early Voting period.
Early Voting in the City of Green Bay is open MON-SAT between Tuesday, October 20 and Saturday, October 31. You can drop it off then.
4) Return to a polling site on Election Day.
This is also an option for dropping off your ballot, however it is more recommended that you drop it off earlier. Still, it is an option if need be. [BALLOT RETURN OPTIONS FOR ALL MUNICIPALITIES IN BROWN COUNTY]
Generally speaking, you, and only you, should drop off your own ballot, however, if you cannot drop it off yourself, you can have somebody else that you trust drop it off for you. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR BALLOT TO ANYBODY WHO YOU DO NOT FULLY TRUST.
Ballots need to be returned by 8:00pm CT on Election Day.
For several reasons, including the fact that ballot drop-off is local, the fact that there is a drop-box or drop-off point in virtually every municipality, and also because there there are so many options for dropping off your ballot, Wisconsin is, in my opinion, one of the very easiest states to drop off your ballot, and is even up there with Oregon and Washington in terms of ease of dropping it off.
If you want to vote in-person, it is recommended that you vote as early as possible.
Early Voting in the City of Green Bay is open MON-SAT between Tuesday, October 20 and Saturday, October 31. Location will probably be at the City Clerk's office. For early voting outside of the City of Green Bay, contact your municipal clerk's office. Make sure that you have your valid photo ID on hand before going to the polls.
You may also vote in-person on Election Day, though it is recommended that you vote early if you are voting in person. Again, make sure you have your valid photo ID. [EARLY VOTING]
Stay safe, vote, and please remember to drop off your absentee ballots and not mail it back unless completely and utterly necessary.

2020.09.12 18:46 Darthfuzzy Megathread: Tropical Storm/Hurricane Sally

What is Damp May Never Dry!

This thread has been updated as of 3pm on 9/14
A storm is in the gulf and might be headed our way. As such, it's time for a megathread!
In order to make it easier and provide current information to individuals, please keep the conversations surrounding the storm to this thread. We are trying to consolidate the more serious conversations/information to this thread. It is highly recommend that you sort comments by new given the changing environment
For the time being, memes and funny-ish posts can be standalone posts. This is subject to change depending on how the situation evolves. Despite all the humor surrounding it, please take this event seriously and make plans based upon your needs.
Below is some general information/advice, but should not be taken as official recommendations. Please listen to local/national authorities in determining your next course of actions. I will try to update this post with current information when I can.
Once the storm gets closer to landfall, we will switch from this standalone post to the /TropicalWeather live thread as it's a great resource to get up to date information on the storm.
P.S. If you believe something should be appended/amended to this post, please let me know and I'll be happy to consider it.

What is happening?

Hurricane Sally is off the SE Coast of Louisiana and is anticipated to keep moving NW towards the Louisiana/Mississippi Gulf Coast over the next 48 hours. The storm is projected to reach hurricane force winds before making landfall sometime between very late Monday night/Tuesday morning. Most models are now predicting a Cat 2-3 landfall.
This storm is not necessarily going to be a huge wind concern - but due to the slow moving nature of the storm, this is expected to be a major rain event with up to 10" anticipated over the next week.
As of 2:40pm on 9/14, the storm has moved slightly more east and we're expecting an Gulfport/Biloxi landfall. We're still not out of the woods yet, but it looks like we might get some western rain bands (as dry as the western side looks). Expect the worst, hope for the best.

Where can I get more information on projected paths, evacuation notices, and general preparation information?

As always, we recommend paying attention to local and national media forecasts. Here are some official government links for you to monitor:
And some local news sources as well:

I'm a weather junky and I need my fix, what do you recommend?

Again, please take advice of your local and national government when making decisions. However, like you, I like knowing what the Euro, GFS, UKMET, HMON, HWRF, COAMPS and Navy models are all doing at all times. For these people:

Should I evacuate?

Please refer to the above local/national section when making your evacuation plans. Every person's situation is different. Please begin making preparations 3-4 days out. I will attempt to monitor and post evacuation updates below, but please refer to this article by WWLTV for more up to date information:
Mandatory Evacuations (As of 9/13):
Voluntary Evacuations (As of 9/13):

Cat 3 then flee, otherwise I'm staying.

Cool. Good For You! Some people aren't so lucky and can't afford to stay. However, here's some general advice for those of us who are new to those whole hurricane thing:

What should I buy?

/TropicalWeather has a fantastic mega-thread on this that I am stealing. I highly recommend visiting this link and making sure that you have all of these things in your household.
Also pop-tarts. All the pop-tarts. Brown sugar for life though.

How much alcohol should I stock up on?


What about public transportation? Will it still be operational?

While a lot of people don't have reliable alternative transportation, always make sure you have a plan. In general, you shouldn't expect public transport to operate during a hurricane. Don't rely upon it. Make plans to move to a safe location or a shelteevacuation center prior to the storm.
Should you need evacuation notices and/or assistance, please review the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority's website for further information on public transportation and and out of the city in the event of a mandatory evacuation.
Update as of 9/13 from RTA:
In preparation for expected impacts of Hurricane Sally to the Gulf Coast region, the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority will suspend all bus and streetcar service beginning at noon on Monday, September 14th. Ferry services will be suspended after normal operations on Sunday, September 13. Services will remain suspended until further notice.

What schools will be closed?

Schools will likely be closed the day before the storm. Depending on the extent of the damage and various other factors (power, water, etc.) it's unknown for how long the schools will be closed for.
It's recommended that you monitor your local parish's school district websites for up to date information on school closures. That being said, we'll post information as it becomes available. WWLTV tends to have a good up to date listing that's available here. Most private institutions abide by the local Parish's closures, but please refer to your specific school for up to date information.
For universities, please refer to your university's individual emergency guidance.
Orleans Parish
Jefferson Parish
St. Tammany Parish
Plaquemines Parish
St. Bernard Parish
Lafourche Parish
Terrebonne Parish
St. Charles Parish


There is a complete list available from WWLTV. I will be publishing some of the major parishes below.
Orleans Parish:
Sandbags will be available beginning 8am on Sunday for Orleans Parish Residents:
St. Bernard Parish:
Self sandbagging will be available Sunday morning beginning at 8 a.m., going on until sand runs out. Residents can fill their sandbags at the following locations:
Plaquemines Parish:
Beginning at 10 a.m., parish-wide sandbag locations will be open, but residents should bring their own shovels and only take what they need. Bags will be provided. Residents can fill their sandbags at the following locations:
St. Tammany Parish:
St. Tammany Parish Government will open six self-service sandbag locations beginning Sunday. All locations will have sand and bags provided. Residents are asked to bring their own shovels in case all shovels provided are in use. residents are asked to limit the number of sandbags to 15 per vehicle. There will be someone on-hand to help the elderly and/or disabled at each location.
The locations will be open Sunday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Monday 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Can you sharpie this situation away?

Neither NOAA nor FEMA recommends this. It doesn't work.

2020.09.11 18:52 trifletruffles Jasper Greenwood-his badly decomposed body was found next to his car in Vicksburg, Mississippi in June 1964-Closed Case under the Civil Rights Division Emmett Till Act

On June 29, 1964, the badly decomposed body of Jasper Greenwood was found next to his car on a “lover’s lane,” about 100 yards off of Main Street in Vicksburg, Mississippi. One of the Jasper's family members reported him missing to the Vicksburg Police Department on June 21, 1964. According to a June 30, 1964 article in the Vicksburg Evening Post, no weapon was found near the Jasper's body. Additionally, a purse containing about $61 was found in Jasper's car which likely ruled out the possibility that he was killed during a robbery. As a result of the body’s condition, a coroner’s inquest could not determine the cause of death.
1964 FBI Investigation:
The FBI first opened the matter on June 30, 1964 after receiving a complaint from [name redacted] of the Jackson, Mississippi, Council of Federal Organizations. [Name redacted] told the FBI that Jasper had been found dead in a field on Main Street by two children. According to [name redacted], Jasper had last been seen alive leaving Jasper Lounge (a business he managed) with two white men on June 21, 1964. [Name redacted] noted that Jasper was not active in the civil rights movement or voter registration drives. However, Jasper's [relationship redacted in the closing memorandum] at one time babysat for Medgar Evers’ family. Additionally, on June 30, 1964, [Name Redacted 2] of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) also contacted the FBI and relayed similar information.
On June 30, 1964, Vicksburg Police Department (VPD) Chief Murray Sills informed the FBI that Jasper had been reported missing to the VPD on June 21. Jasper’s body was found at about 3:10 p.m. on June 29 by two boys. Jasper was found lying next to his car; the car was parked on a “lover’s lane” about 100 yards east of Main Street in Vicksburg. Jasper's body was too severely decomposed to allow for an autopsy, and the coroner could not ascertain Jasper's cause of death.
According to Chief Sills, VPD investigators determined that Jasper had last been seen with a married African-American woman sometime between 1:00 and 2:00 a.m. on June 21, 1964. Chief Sills did not identify the woman to the FBI, but presumably knew who she was since he stated that [name redacted] "had been developed as a logical suspect" because [name redacted] had reportedly previously threatened Jasper for dating the woman. Chief Sills stated that both the woman and [name redacted] had disappeared.
On July 4, 1964, Chief Sills contacted the FBI and stated that the VPD had arrested Flossie Lee Minor on July 3. According to Chief Sills, Flossie admitted that she had gone with Jasper to “lover’s lane for a tryst." At some point, Jasper fell to the ground unconscious. When Flossie was not able to resuscitate Jasper, she fled the area. Flossie said that Jasper had apparently died of a heart attack and denied that there had been any foul play.
The FBI was contacted on July 31, 1964, by Dick Corigan, a reporter for the Washington Post, who received information from [name redacted] saying that Jasper's body reportedly had what appeared to be a bullet wound in his chest.The FBI interviewed [name redacted] who was in Vicksburg at the end of June 1964, and heard about Jasper's death. [Name redacted] then visited the Jasper's [relationship redacted]. Jasper's [relationship redacted] told [name redacted] that Jasper had been missing for about a week and had reportedly died of a heart attack. [Relationship redacted] mentioned she had not been allowed to see Jasper's body because it was too decomposed. Jasper's family had not requested an autopsy and "was undecided as to its necessity." When questioned about Jasper's civil rights activities, [relationship redacted] provided no information other than to say that he was a registered voter.
[Name redacted] recalled that a [redacted employee of the funeral home] that prepared Jasper's body for burial arrived at the [relationship redacted]'s residence while [redacted name] was present. According to the redacted employee, while examining Jasper's body, he noticed a hole at the base of Jasper's throat that could have been a stab or bullet wound. When asked whether he had reported the information to the police, the redacted employee said that he thought investigators already had the information and wanted to “keep it quiet;” it was [redacted name]'s understanding that the police report indicated that Jasper died of a heart attack.
[Name redacted] told the FBI that he investigated the matter further and determined that Jasper was not a member of COFO or any related organization and had not been involved in any voter registration drives or other civil rights work. Similarly, Charles Evers, the NAACP’s Mississippi Field Director at the time, informed the FBI that Jasper was not active in voter registration drives or the civil rights movement.
The FBI interviewed the redacted employee of the funeral home [same individual discussed in preceding paragraph]. According to the employee, a coroner’s inquest had been conducted at the site where Jasper's body was found. The employee did not conduct an inquest or examine Jasper's body. He stated that Jasper's body was in terrible condition and had significantly decomposed. The employee did see a hole at the base of Jasper's throat but the hole was full of small worms and he did not think it had been caused by stabbing or a bullet. The employee recalled being questioned by a man he thought was a member of the Greenwood family [Name redacted/same individual discussed in preceding paragraph] when he went to speak with the family about funeral arrangements. According to the employee, when [Name redacted] asked him whether he thought the hole in Jasper's throat had been caused by a bullet, he told [Name redacted] that he had no reason to believe that the hole had been caused by anything other than “nature and the worms.”
2009 Review:
The FBI contacted various acquaintances and members of Jasper's family [all names redacted]. One family member stated Jasper's mother (now deceased) went to look for Jasper when he went missing. She and other family members searched as far as Jackson Road, which Jasper frequently used, but they did not find him. An acquaintance [name redacted] was interviewed by a Mississippi Attorney General’s Office (MAGO) investigator in March 2009. The acquaintance stated that, within hours of Jasper’s body being found, she was interviewed by a Warren County Sheriff’s Department (WCSD) deputy, at her place of employment, the Rockett Cab Company. The deputy told the acquaintance that she had been seen with Jasper that evening. She told the MAGO investigator that she worked the midnight shift at the cab company the entire weekend that Jasper went missing and she did not know why it was rumored that she had been with him at any time.
The FBI conducted an online search for Flossie Minor, who reportedly witnessed Jasper's death, and located a record for a Flossie E. Minor who died on April 2, 2005 in Liberty, Missouri. The FBI obtained a copy of Jasper's death record from James E. Jefferson, Jr., Funeral Director for the W.H. Jefferson Funeral Home. The record stated that Jasper died on June 21, 1964. Jasper's cause of death was listed as “undetermined” with “unknown” contributory causes. The FBI contacted the MAGO and the Mississippi Department of Public Safety, but neither of those agencies had any records relevant to the Jasper's death.
At the conclusion of the FBI's investigation, the Department of Justice concluded that this matter does not constitute a prosecutable violation of the federal criminal civil rights statutes as "neither the FBI’s 1964 nor its 2009 investigation uncovered sufficient evidence to contradict the reported results of the contemporaneous VPD investigation, i.e., that the victim died of a heart attack while in the company of an African-American woman." Accordingly, there is insufficient evidence that "a racially-motivated homicide occurred and, therefore, this matter lacks prosecutive merit and should be closed."
I came across the Department of Justice’s cold case initiative while reading an article discussing journalists’ efforts to install a billboard on an Arkansas highway aimed at solving the 1954 lynching of Isadore Banks. The Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice launched a website (linked above) to make information about the department’s investigation of cold cases from the Civil Rights Era more accessible to the public. Over the years, the Department “has assisted in prosecuting Edgar Ray Killen in 2005, making him the eighth defendant convicted for the 1964 murders of three civil rights workers in Philadelphia, Mississippi (the "Mississippi Burning" case); secured life sentences in 2003 against the perpetrators of the 1963 Sixteenth Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama; and secured a federal conviction and life sentence of James Ford Seale for the kidnapping and murder of two teenagers in Franklin County, Mississippi in 1964.” Congress recognized the importance of these federal efforts when it enacted the Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crime Act in 2008.
Unfortunately, in many cases “legal and evidentiary barriers prevent the Department from moving forward with prosecution." In each case that is not prosecutable, the Department of Justice wrote a closing memo explaining the investigative steps taken and the basis for their conclusion. To date, the Department of Justice has uploaded 115 closing memos. I hope to be able to post on all of the closed cases as I share in the belief with the Department of Justice that “these stories should be told [as] there is value in a public reckoning with the history of racial violence and the complicity of government officials.”

2020.09.08 17:07 intellectualgulf The Miseducation of the American People

This is a theory that I will be working on until I figure out if it is accurate or not. Y'know, how the scientific process is supposed to be applied.
The theory is this: The american people have been purposefully miseducated for generations and the bizarre backwards behavior we see today is a symptom of this miseducation.
Whether or not the GOP is mainly responsible, whether this miseducation was politically aligned / inspired seems like a very important question given Nixon's presidency. Nixon is however just a symptom of a disease, and that disease is misinformation. The miseducation of the American people has been occurring for at least 100 years, but most likely has been ongoing since the founding of the country. Unfortunately freedom of speech protects liars, but that is the price we pay for democracy.
Misinformation is a human disease, and is directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of American citizens in 2020 alone. Trump appointed Jared Kushner, an uneducated unqualified man, to lead a Covid Task force AND Jared Kushner showed why being uneducated is dangerous, since he decided Covid would magically hurt democrats more than republicans.
I appear to be picking on Trump, but my theory is that conservatives of every color are to blame for this miseducation. It may be unfair to lay the blame entirely at the feet of conservative political parties, but we still can't have rational public debates about social policy without one of the miseducated screaming about communism.
The average american has no idea what socialism is and only vaguely understands it to be a dangerous / bad system of governance that opposing superpowers have historically claimed to follow.
The issue with this miseducation is it prevents reasonable logical debate. Of course any purely socialist society would fail, we are not a cooperative species. Any "true" form of government will fail when applied to humans because we are not rational or logical animals. We will inevitably smear everything in sight with feces and claim we have improved the world.
Miseducation has led to the average american not understanding how governments function at a fundamental level. A government is a group of people who agree to a set of rules that direct acceptable or unacceptable behavior, who organize around these rules, and who contribute resources to the group fund to support the enforcement of those rules. Every government is socialist since the definition of socialism is group ownership, and democratic governments are group owned. All guaranteed services provided by a government are group owned, and anyone who claims the government should not provide guaranteed services should leave since that is exactly what our founding fathers wanted it to be.
I'll repeat that last bit for clarity, the founding fathers intentionally created a group owned government to provide guaranteed services which include the postal service. If you consider yourself an "American" and believe that privatizing government services is a good idea, then you do not understand your government. This is reasonable given that many people were taught complete falsehoods before the internet came along, and many more falsehoods have been propagated by charlatans via the internet.
The only reason we can even tell that a massive amount of miseducation occurred in the United States is because so many of those people are very loud. The internet acts as a permanent record, and despite active revisionism / ongoing miseducation it still provides a clear view of the miseducation.
Each administration that chooses to use misinformation as a political weapon / tool ultimately damages the United States of America as they progressively weaken the citizens faith in truth. The american people at this point in time continue to act illogically despite access to the entirety of human knowledge at their fingertips. This is because the average American has been taught that Science and truth are not the same, and that "science" cannot be trusted to protect their interests. It does not matter that "their interests" are given to them by politicians who have shown an inability to think rationally or scientifically, since this is what they have been taught to accept.
This is yet another symptom of the disease, as people who otherwise are not mentally deficient make completely irrational or illogical choices / behaviors, such as continuing to elect corrupt and incompetent leaders.
The claims by Trump and other "modern" conservatives that the United States is or ever was intended to be a Christian nation is common. It really shouldn't be commonly held or believed since it is patently false, but it is another symptom of the disease of misinformation which is propagated in the United States through miseducation.
Data Sources
Statistics in the U.S. Department of Education: Highlights from the Past 120 Years
US Department of Education website
The original Department of Education was created in 1867 to collect information on schools and teaching that would help the States establish effective school systems. While the agency's name and location within the Executive Branch have changed over the past 130 years, this early emphasis on getting information on what works in education to teachers and education policymakers continues down to the present day.
The passage of the Second Morrill Act in 1890 gave the then-named Office of Education responsibility for administering support for the original system of land-grant colleges and universities. Vocational education became the next major area of Federal aid to schools, with the 1917 Smith-Hughes Act and the 1946 George-Barden Act focusing on agricultural, industrial, and home economics training for high school students.
World War II led to a significant expansion of Federal support for education. The Lanham Act in 1941 and the Impact Aid laws of 1950 eased the burden on communities affected by the presence of military and other Federal installations by making payments to school districts. And in 1944, the "GI Bill" authorized postsecondary education assistance that would ultimately send nearly 8 million World War II veterans to college.
The Cold War stimulated the first example of comprehensive Federal education legislation, when in 1958 Congress passed the National Defense Education Act (NDEA) in response to the Soviet launch of Sputnik. To help ensure that highly trained individuals would be available to help America compete with the Soviet Union in scientific and technical fields, the NDEA included support for loans to college students, the improvement of science, mathematics, and foreign language instruction in elementary and secondary schools, graduate fellowships, foreign language and area studies, and vocational-technical training.
The anti-poverty and civil rights laws of the 1960s and 1970s brought about a dramatic emergence of the Department's equal access mission. The passage of laws such as Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 which prohibited discrimination based on race, sex, and disability, respectively made civil rights enforcement a fundamental and long-lasting focus of the Department of Education. In 1965, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act launched a comprehensive set of programs, including the Title I program of Federal aid to disadvantaged children to address the problems of poor urban and rural areas. And in that same year, the Higher Education Act authorized assistance for postsecondary education, including financial aid programs for needy college students.
In 1980, Congress established the Department of Education as a Cabinet level agency. Today, ED operates programs that touch on every area and level of education. The Department's elementary and secondary programs annually serve nearly 18,200 school districts and over 50 million students attending roughly 98,000 public schools and 32,000 private schools. Department programs also provide grant, loan, and work-study assistance to more than 12 million postsecondary students.
When formulating this theory I was focused on education in the 1950s and later, but I am revising this theory as I read more. I think the best way to identify the miseducation will be to find writings that survived the shifts in belief. To suggest to one of Jefferson's contemporaries that he wanted religion involved with the United States government would have gotten you laughed out of the room. Jefferson was not above using the law to support his personal beliefs, but we have his letters with Madison where they congratulate one another on keeping religion out of the government [see comments].

20200915 - "The white man's burden"
In February 1899, British novelist and poet Rudyard Kipling wrote a poem entitled “The White Man’s Burden: The United States and The Philippine Islands.”
I had hoped I would need to search further than this to find my evidence, as if all the evidence is laying about like this it is a wonder no one else stumbled upon it before.
"The White Man's Burden" had a clear historical impact, and yet most people alive now would refuse to believe that their great great grandparent, great grandparent, or grandparent was assuredly raised with (and most likely promoted) Racist views.
This poem influenced the future) US President Theodore Roosevelt and Global Policy as a result:
We see contemporary refutations by famous figures such as Mark Twain, that were clearly ignored in favor of the "White Man" which in the USA was quite literal. "Predestination" was the idea that White Christians were beloved by God, and that God had made the world for White Men to rule".
This was such a common theme in those days that it was used to literally steal land from the natives. Really good evidence of how effective Christianity is as a moral spine to humanity in my thinking.
Just look at President Jackson's Message to Congress "On Indian Removal", December 6, 1830;
We must admit that not just some, but most of our forefather's were selfish and racist people who had been indoctrinated by their conservative peers and teachers.
The reason I bring this poem up specifically is I found it in a Biology textbook. Which Biology textbook? Why only one of the most famous textbooks in history that no one remembers,:
A Civic Biology: Presented in Problems (usually referred to as just Civic Biology) was a biology textbook written by George William Hunter, published in 1914
Excerpt from The Economic Value of Trees. Protection and Regulation of Water Supply. : "It was such a strange, tremendous story, that of the Greek Poseidonia, later the Roman Pæstum. Long ago those adventuring mariners from Greece had seized the fertile plain, which at that time was covered with forests of great oak and watered by two clear and shining rivers. They drove the Italian natives back into the distant hills, for the white man's burden even then included the taking of all the desirable things that were being wasted by incompetent natives, and they brought over colonists—whom the philosophers and moralists at home maligned, no doubt, in the same pleasant fashion of our own day. And the colonists cut down the oaks, and plowed the land, and built cities, and made harbors, and finally dusted their busy hands and busy souls of the grime of labor and wrought splendid temples in honor of the benign gods who had given them the possessions of the Italians and filled them with power and fatness. "
Now one instance doesn't make a pattern, but that is clearly not a scientific phrase. Why is this Biology textbook, which was used to force schools to teach science, reinforcing a view that was known at the time to be wrong? Not only was this view known to be wrong, it had been known for at least 50 years.
At this point we can just accept that Christianity was only used as a way to excuse horrendous treatment of "savages", and that the people alive at the time knew this was true. The supporters of predestination at the time most likely were as vehement in their correctness as the neo-nazis of now.
So what is the picture I am painting? Why is this not in chronological order?
I am going to show you that not only is there a constant theme of "denying reality" among conservatives in the United States, but that it was purposeful refutation of correct information (truth).
Andrew Jackson did not consider the native population as human:
"And is it supposed that the wandering savage has a stronger attachment to his home than the settled, civilized Christian? Is it more afflicting to him to leave the graves of his fathers than it is to our brothers and children? Rightly considered, the policy of the General Government toward the red man is not only liberal, but generous. He is unwilling to submit to the laws of the States and mingle with their population. To save him from this alternative, or perhaps utter annihilation, the General Government kindly offers him a new home, and proposes to pay the whole expense of his removal and settlement."
I can say Jackson didn't consider "the red man" as human, because despite this claim that the "red man" would be relocated and all costs covered Jackson would end up authorizing the murder of many natives during his presidency. Just look at how Jackson promoted an incorrect view of the Native American people being "wandering savages" with no connection to the land.
"Whatabout" arguments bring up questions of "ownership", inheritance of land among Native American Tribes, and wars among the Tribes just before the "settling" of the Americas. My counter to this is the same as always, according to your logic if I want your house I just need to prove you haven't owned it "very long".
This argument is at its core insisting that the ownership of a landmass depends on how recently the government on that landmass changed leadership. The fact is that the native American people had been living on the continent without european intervention for at least 1,000 years:
Just for example he Connestee people, believed to be ancestors of the Cherokee, occupied western North Carolina circa 200 to 600 CE
This means that the Cherokee have a stronger claim to England than the English according to the "recent ownership theory", since the people the English descended from didn't arrive in England until after 400 CE:
Honestly if you or anyone you know believes the ridiculously common conservative argument, please point out to them that based on the concept of ownership being based on time spent in a region, the Native American people owned half the world before the English stood up their bastion of failing Rome in the United Kingdom. Not only that, but the Native American people had a rich history that quite literally was all but destroyed between the 16th and 18th centuries.
Jesus H Christ, if you want to see even more proof that we have simply trained ourselves to be idiotic, look at this History Channel Page that supposedly tells the timeline of the Native American People:
It starts in 1492! That is not a history of the native american people, that is a history of European interaction with the Native American People's. This is a perfect example of how our common knowledge and supposed history is just conservative garbage.
Looking at the actual Wikipedia page (look out for conservative Christian revisionism), we see that the people who populated the American continents lived there for millenia. "Western Christian Civilization" wasn't even a shitstain in homo sapiens diaper when the American continents were fully settled and replete with grand empires.
Not only did Jackson purposefully mis-inform the American people about the selfishness and evil of the "Indian Removal Act", but he used similar misinformation tactics to disguise other political agendas:
" Mexico, having for six years carried on against Texas a marauding war only, and that upon the most savage principles, inconsistant with all principles of civilised warfare, and against which all civilised nations which have acknowledged the Independence of Texas ought to unite, and by peaceful means, if it could, put it down, and if this could not be obtained peaceably, then all civillised and christian powers are bound to unite upon christian principle to put an end to this savage and inhuman war. The United States having been the first nation that acknowledged Texian Independence, are we not bound to be the first to boldly step forward to put an end to this savage maurading war. I think so. Texas harassed, and her means of war limitted presents herself to the united states to be annexed to, and protected by the United States. There being no embodied army marching against Texas for reconquest, great Britain trying to obtain the Liberation of the slaves in Texas for the avowed purpose of coercing the south and west into this measure by destroying the vallue of this property and opening a way for our slaves to run away to Texas, is [it] not time for the south and west to take the alarm, and as Texas has presented herself for voluntary annexation, which at once shuts the door against this impending evil, and secures Neworleans in case of a war with England, can it be, could it be, that any one could seriously suppose that the whole south and west would not unite upon this important subject, and with one voice cry out annexation. "
"I am very feeble, but excited by the subject, mortified at Mr. V.B. letter and Col. Bentons, for their is no evidence of ever the time being more propitious than the present, the necessitous situation of Texas, the prospects of the encouragement posponement will give to Mexico, with the secrete aid of great Britain and the consequences, makes my tears flow with regret. Texas may feel herself insulted and neglected by the refusal of the U. States and make a treaty with great Britain ruinous to the south west and to the safety of the Union, when we will have to fight both great Britain and mexico—on such an event what curses must fall upon all who refused to receive Texas."
It's almost like Andrew Jackson was a Racist, who while opposed / refuted by some of his contemporaries, the average American clearly supported Predestination.
It is no wonder that with this amount misinformation use already present by the 7th President we see a President today who does nothing but lie. Since conservatives value Opinion over Truth we can no longer trust anything that they claim, and we shouldn't have been letting these views infect out people for this long to begin with.

Special Interest Groups Damaged our Government:

This should be a perfectly reasonable debate with no partisanship or issues of religion / emotion (/s).
This is going to be a shit show, just be prepared.
Academics have almost universally responded poorly to this hypothesis, that the American People have been Miseducated for Generations.
It is quite possible that the misinformation campaigns which turned our nation into an "Idiocracy" were not exclusive to education centers.
Searching through the NY Times you can find many examples of Christian special interest groups attacking politicians for failing to align with their goals:

1842 - The Religious instruction of the Negroes in the United States
ORIGIN on THE AMERICAN INDIANS. Hence it seems, at first glance, almost impossible that it should have been reached, in an age when ships Were small‘ and frail, when the mariner’s compass was unknown and the sailor dared not trust himself out of sight of land. This led men to suppose that the inhabitants of America did not descend from Adam and Eve, but from a race previously created. Such a theory’ is plainly contrary to the Bible record, nor is it needed to account for the settlement of America. .8. Later discoveries have brought to light a fact unknown to geographers three hundred years ago, that America wi- dens rapidly in the north, and there juts out into the ocean till it comes within thirty-six ‘miles of Asia. , As a current sets -towards the American shore, the passage thither can be readily made even in rude vessels. Boats may have been driven over by stress of weather, and the continent thus have been discovered without design. But there was a still‘ easier means of communication. In severe seasons, ,Behring’s Strait is frozen over. , ‘Many varieties of animals have passed on the ice from one continent to the other; and the first occupants of America, led by curiosity, or driven by violence,- may have reached the new world in the same manner. 9. At what time this event took place, we are not informed. History makes no mention of it. It is probable that it occurred at an early date, not many centuries after the dispersion at Babel and the consequent emigration from the plain of Shi’nar.
1875 Analysis of Civil Government
There is little need of comment "on this clause‘‘.‘‘ No “man can Well doubt the propriety of placing a President of the" United States’ under the most solemn obligations to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution. It is "a suitable ‘pledge of his fidelity and responsibility to his 'country', and creates upon his conscience a deep ‘sense duty, by an appeal at once, in the presence of God and man, to the most sacred and solemn sanctions Which can operate upon the human mind
Oath. A solemn aflirmation or declaration, before a competent tribunal or ofiieer, to tell the truth, appealing to God for the truth of what is asserted.
1875 - Politics for young adults
TO PARENTS AND TEACHERS. to be a good citizen of the United States one ought to be imbued with the spirit of Christianity, and to believe in and act upon the teachings of Jesus. He condemned self-seeking, covetousness, hypocrisy, class distinctions, envy, malice, undue and ignoble ambition
Old textbooks:
ATTITUDES REVEALED IN SUBJECT MATTER Since geography textbooks dealt extensively with people and customs, the opportunity was great for authors to reveal their attitudes regarding the various peoples and their ways of living. In many geographies, especially in the earlier ones, the content revealed that the attitudes of the authors were often biased. Religious Attitudes. The earliest geographies were written when our country was still dominantly Protestant and the academic leaders were either trained as ministers or at least deeply religious. J edidiah Morse and Elijah Parish were both Congregational ministers. Not even all Protestant groups were equally respected. For example, in the first American written geography, Morse in 1784 referred to the Presbyterians and Lutherans as “numerous and respectable.” Parish, in enumerating the religious groups, began with small letters the words Baptists, Methodists, Quakers, and Catholics, but began with capital letters Presbyterian, Congregationalists, and Lutherans. ‘ Many of the early books particularly contained unfavorable comments about other religions than Protestants. Morse in his 1790 edition referred to Roman Catholicism in Spain as “of most bigoted, superstitious, and tyrannical character.” Dwight (1806), Parish (1810), and Adams (1818) used the term “Pop- ery” in referring to Roman Catholicism. Davies (1805) claimed that the priests in Ireland ruled with “blind superstition and ignorance.” Many other early geographies contained similar statements. Later several geography textbooks were written by Catholic
GEOGRAPHIES Q13 authors which were equally biased against Protestantism. Among these were texts by Pinnock (1853) and Sadlier (1880). The latter, in referring to religious conditions in Ireland, said: England abandoned the Catholic faith in the 16th century, and to this country belongs the ignoble distinction of having oppressed and persecuted the Irish nation with a barbarity unparalleled in the history of man’s inhumanity to man. Most Protestant authors referred to the Protestants in Euro- pean countries with respect. Parish (1810) said, “The Scotch clergy are men of learning and piety.” Woodbridge (1835) said, in referring to the Scots, “They are remarkable for knowledge and morality, produced by their numerous schools, and their at- tention to public worship.” In referring to non-Christian religions, likewise, uncompli- mentary statements were often made. A number of authors re- ferred to Mahomet as an “imposter.” Morse (1800) wrote: “In a word, the contagion spread over Arabia, Syria, Egypt, and Persia; Mahomet, from a deceitful hypocrite, became the most powerful monarch in his time.” Warren in 1872 referred to Mohammed as a “false prophet.” Uncomplimentary statements were also made about the religions in Japan and India. Reform Attitudes. The teaching of religion and morality was really the chief aim of education in early American schools. This aim was even dominant. in geography textbooks. Thus many forms of behavior which the authors considered immoral were severely condemned. Alcohol. Morse (1790) believed “in proportion as the use of beer increases, in the same proportion will the use of spiritous liquors decrease. This will be a happy exchange.” Parish (1810) condemned the “numerous Taverns,” and “grogshops.” Several condemned the sale of liquors to Indians.

Summary: good headway has been made with tackling the fire. However it's still ongoing and dry, hot conditions present problems. PLEASE SEE THE EVACUATION ORDERS to check if your area is still under the order (for your own safety and to stay out of the way of the fire crews). It's too much for me to copy here.
Have a good Saturday all!


This Fire isn't over but I feel that we, I, owe a Huge thanks to everyone who helped and is helping (I'll be compiling this list as I go, let me know if you don't want to be mentioned

2020.09.02 16:35 intellectualgulf The theory that Christianity aids the advancement of Science and Technology is wrong.

Now at least one rational response will show up in Google results. It is absolutely absurd that until today, 20200902, if you searched for the phrase "christian damage to human knowledge", you would have found no results.
This is utterly ridiculous to anyone remotely familiar with history.
Unfortunately if you search for the phrase "christianity and the advancement of technology" or just "christianity and technology" you get results by a new cult of Christianity professing the incorrect thesis that claims, "Christianity “The Historical Roots of Our Ecologic Crisis,” (1967) ".
I will prove the thesis wrong using a single historical fact to begin with, but there are so many that I will just keep adding to the list until someone gives me a doctorate for this.
Trying to claim "Christianity is beneficial to technology and science" is so incredibly inaccurate I can't begin to describe the magnitude of the error. I can call this branch of nutters a Cult because they are actively trying to alter history in a very dangerous way. The Catholic / Christian churches and nearly every branch ultimately promote misinformation and lies, with this ridiculous theory being the biggest turd so far.
The claim by White is,
"the emergence in widespread practice of the Baconian creed, that scientific knowledge means technological power over nature can scarcely be dated before 1850".
Well that isn't how logic or history work at all.
Firstly, just because the scientific method had not been described by Sir Francis Bacon until the 1650's does not mean in any shape or form that the methods were not being applied beforehand.
This would be like claiming gravity did not exist before Newton described it, which clearly is not how the physical world operates.
Unfortunately the best summation of White's Thesis, found in the "Encyclopedia of Religion and Nature", seems to be the origin for the idea that White was proposing a link between Christianity and technology:
Had White shown that religion was a cause of technological development
It seems White's paper and later evaluations within "Christian Scholarly circles" is what led to this absurd attempt to whitewash history.
Really everyone should stop here, as the theory has already proven itself false in basic premise.
Let's go ahead and prove it wrong though before the overwhelming amount of bullshit being spewed overwhelms actual historical fact.
To do this, let's look at one of my favorite historical figures, Archimedes of Syracuse (/ˌɑːrkɪˈmiːdiːz/;[2] Ancient Greek: Ἀρχιμήδης, Arkhimḗdēs; Doric Greek: [ar.kʰi.mɛː.dɛ̂ːs]; c. 287 – c. 212 BC) was a Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer.[3]
A large part of Archimedes' work in engineering arose from fulfilling the needs of his home city of Syracuse. The Greek writer Athenaeus of Naucratis described how King Hiero II commissioned Archimedes to design a huge ship, the Syracusia, which could be used for luxury travel, carrying supplies, and as a naval warship. The Syracusia is said to have been the largest ship built in classical antiquity.[31] According to Athenaeus, it was capable of carrying 600 people and included garden decorations, a gymnasium) and a temple dedicated to the goddess Aphrodite among its facilities. Since a ship of this size would leak a considerable amount of water through the hull, the Archimedes' screw was purportedly developed in order to remove the bilge water. Archimedes' machine was a device with a revolving screw-shaped blade inside a cylinder. It was turned by hand, and could also be used to transfer water from a low-lying body of water into irrigation canals. The Archimedes' screw is still in use today for pumping liquids and granulated solids such as coal and grain. The Archimedes' screw described in Roman times by Vitruvius may have been an improvement on a screw pump that was used to irrigate the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.[32][33] The world's first seagoing steamship with a screw propeller was the SS Archimedes, which was launched in 1839 and named in honor of Archimedes and his work on the screw.[34]
For a wonderful example of why Christians should not be allowed to spread this ridiculous theory of how helpful they are to science and technology lets look at a Christian practice of writing over old manuscripts with bible nonsense:

Archimedes Palimpsest
In 1906, The Archimedes Palimpsest revealed works by Archimedes thought to have been lost.
The foremost document containing the work of Archimedes is the Archimedes Palimpsest. In 1906, the Danish professor Johan Ludvig Heiberg) visited Constantinople and examined a 174-page goatskin) parchment of prayers written in the 13th century AD. He discovered that it was a palimpsest, a document with text that had been written over an erased older work. Palimpsests were created by scraping the ink from existing works and reusing them, which was a common practice in the Middle Ages as vellum was expensive. The older works in the palimpsest were identified by scholars as 10th century AD copies of previously unknown treatises by Archimedes.[75] The parchment spent hundreds of years in a monastery library in Constantinople before being sold to a private collector in the 1920s. On October 29, 1998 it was sold at auction to an anonymous buyer for $2 million at Christie's in New York.[76]
The palimpsest holds seven treatises, including the only surviving copy of On Floating Bodies in the original Greek. It is the only known source of The Method of Mechanical Theorems, referred to by Suidas and thought to have been lost forever. Stomachion was also discovered in the palimpsest, with a more complete analysis of the puzzle than had been found in previous texts. The palimpsest is now stored at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland, where it has been subjected to a range of modern tests including the use of ultraviolet and x-ray light to read the overwritten text.[77]
So what does Archimedes tell us? Well he tells us we have a verified person alive before Christ who practiced science. Archimedes definitely followed a different religion since the Judaic People didn't have the Maccabean Revolt (origin of Hunnakah) until 150 BCE.
Looking at the religions history of Ancient Rome we can see that is is very unlikely Judaism or Christianity had become more than Cults by the time of Archimedes, who lived in Syracuse before the Romans conquered it, and died as a result of that conquering.
So just to be clear we have a "heathen" who is recognized by anyone with a brain as one of the most influential scientists to ever live.
Syracuse did LATER become infected by Christianity but it was not founded by Hebrew or Christian peoples and certainly was not Judaic or Christian or Catholic.
Syracuse was founded by Greek colonists in 734 or 733 BC, part of Magna Graecia. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia: "Syracuse claims to be the second Church founded by St. Peter, after that of Antioch. It also claims that St. Paul preached there. ... In the times of St. Cyprian (the middle of the third century), Christianity certainly flourished at Syracuse, and the catacombs clearly show that this was the case in the second century." Across the Strait of Messina, Calabria on the mainland was also probably an early center of Christianity.[63]
To put the nail in the ridiculous notion that Christianity is somehow linked to scientific and technological progress, let's just have a look at the timeline of notable events in human history.

To help the king of Syracuse extract water from the hold of a ship (so the story goes), Archimedes invents the screw now known by his name
Hmmm. I see an odd lack of the Big G given how Christianity or other religions of the book are supposed to be somehow integral to scientific progress.
Oh wait that's right. It's a lie. That explains it much more simply than rewriting history doesn't it?
Yes many scientists since the creation of Christianity have been Christian. A lot of people who died were alive too.
All people will inevitably try to enact / enforce policies and laws that align with their personal beliefs. Logical / rational people do not allow their irrational beliefs (religion) to guide their policy making. Irrational people, the religious, actively try to force the rest of the world to follow their irrational beliefs.
If you don't see how that can be dangerous, consider that pre-marital sex used to get you killed by a mob chucking rocks.
Yeah... no. No one should be expected to let a group of people who believe they commit ritualistic cannibalism every week decide on law.
Like I said I am going to keep adding to this, and I will clean up the language, but it makes me furious to know that Christian "scholars" are trying to white wash history and make it look like Christianity is somehow responsible for technonological / scientific progress. It is absurd. Chrsitianity / Catholicism / Religion itself is almost always anathema towards scientific progress since science unveils the lies that are woven into every religion.
Resurrection - never happened.
Deities visiting the planet - never happened.
Miracles - never happened.
Religion being the moral backbone of society - laughably wrong
Now lets have a look at REAL things that REALLY happened and aren't weird masturbatory conjecture.
Galileo, the most famous example of a scientist put to death for arguing with the church
People that Christians burned because religion
Christians burning books, the epitome of destroying knowledge beyond just murdering people
Conservative Christians Deny Climate Change still
Or how about the super disturbing fact that the United States Supreme Courts constantly has to fight to keep idiotic religious rules from infecting our schools and government
Or how about the fact that God was added to the United States way after the fact, and we were intended to be a non-affiliated country
Modern Christian revisionists would have you believe the United States was founded as a Christian nation. No it was not by any mean. Let us prove this by looking at the Constitution:
All Debts contracted and Engagements entered into, before the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any state to the Contrary notwithstanding.
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
So politicians campaigning based on their religious affiliation could actually be seen as a violation of the Constitution. Making religion a basis for election is contrary to the constitution.
The idea that the separation of Church and State was not intentional or was somehow added later is absurd. The first amendment was suggested in September 25, 1789 and ratified in December 15, 1791.
If you look at the "Christianity in the United States" Wiki page, you can see more of this revisionist bullshit.
Separation of church and state[edit]
In October 1801, members of the Danbury Baptists Associations wrote a letter to the new president-elect Thomas Jefferson. Baptists, being a minority in Connecticut, were still required to pay fees to support the Congregationalist majority. The Baptists found this intolerable. The Baptists, well aware of Jefferson's own unorthodox beliefs, sought him as an ally in making all religious expression a fundamental human right and not a matter of government largesse.
In his January 1, 1802 reply to the Danbury Baptist Association Jefferson summed up the First Amendment's original intent, and used for the first time anywhere a now-familiar phrase in today's political and judicial circles: the amendment established a "wall of separation between church and state." Largely unknown in its day, this phrase has since become a major Constitutional issue. The first time the U.S. Supreme Court cited that phrase from Jefferson was in 1878, 76 years later.
This is so obviously wrong given historical fact that I shouldn't have to spell it out for anyone. This is not just navel-gazing conjecture as there are now conservative Christians trying to actively change history. What a sad state the world is in (again).

2020.09.01 04:10 Dagenspear Fixing DC CW's Crisis On Infinite Earths, Part 3

Like some I disliked the crossover, it's the worst out of all of them, and this is my preference for it to be done. For part 1 & 2, here: Crisis On Infinite Earths, Part 1
Crisis On Infinite Earths, Part 2
Here are the ideas God blessed me with:
Eobard explains to Barry that in previous timelines, it was a younger version of himself that experienced this in 2024. When the dagger was destroyed, his future death was prevented and he took advantage of it, saying that he couldn't resist making sure Barry failed this time, hitting him at his weakest in this timeline. Barry asks what he gets out of this. Eobard states that for his entire life he's lived in The Flash's world, taunted by Flash's existence, by what he'll never be, that once Barry's world is destroyed Eobard will be given a anti-matter earth of his own, and he will force Barry to live in Reverse Flash's world, with his failure of the loss of the entire multiverse and everyone he loves to keep him company.
Harbinger is immensely weakened from being used to kill the Monitor, barely any power left.
Iris comforts Barry in the midst of him feeling like Oliver's gone.
Lois hugs E-38's Superman, in relief that he's alive. He asks where Jon is, Lois telling him she put him down for a nap.
The earths are beginning to be destroyed at a more rapid rate.
Harry, Jesse, Jay and Wally are in this episode. Jesse and Harry were off E-2 when it was destroyed, dealing with something else and have been trying to figure out what was happening, when they couldn't get back to E-2, going to Jay when they realized it was destroyed due to anti-matter, explaining that it was near impossible to get here due to the damage of the anti-matter effecting the multi-verse, and only with the combined powers of Jay and Jesse and the breach device were they able to. Jesse having sought Wally first.
Shadow Creatures begin to come at STAR Labs, as Kara, Jjonn, the Supermen, Lex, Bruce, Ray, Mia and Sara try to prep a makeshift tower to protect E-1 from them, using Lex's device, with Harry's help, who tells them his intelligence has started to return. Kara telling them that Alex, Brainy and Lena are running the calculations to see if they can recreate the defense against the antimatter as well, using other means. Lex explaining that they can't. He tried. E-38 Superman telling him they'll get an opinion they can actually trust. Lex acts faux offended, telling him that if the multiverse goes, he does too, and he's not too keen on dying.
The shadow creatures don't attack STAR Labs though, but begin going after the civilians around the STAR Labs area. E-78 Superman, calling the shots, deduces it's a distraction and he, Sara, Mia and Jjonn go to defend the civilians, leaving Kara and E-38 Superman there to defend STAR Labs.
Jay and Jesse are dispatched to help civilians as well, as Barry, Caitlin/Killer Frost, Cisco and Ralph seek Thawne, with Wally insisting he go with them. To help, Harbinger uses some of the cosmic energy she has left to de-energize the anti-meta cells in Cisco's bloodstream, allowing to use his powers in a minimal basis, telling him it could kill him if he exerts himself. Cisco vibes, but is unable to get a clear visual, like it's being blocked. Harbinger theorizes by antimatter.
In the Black Lightning episode the earth doesn't get destroyed. Black Lightning is still taken from there though.
Barry has Cisco track the negative speed force signature of Thawne, in correlation to the energy signature that the Anti-Monitor used to takeover Harbinger, her with them. This leads them to the doorway Eobard opened that let the Anti-Monitor out. Barry recognizes the letters on the door. It's similar to the speedforce language, and the language written in the book of destiny. Barry remembers the Monitor telling them about how "Nash" was able to open the door that no man should know how to open, that was encoded with the language of time. Cisco tries to vibe, but it begins to hurt him, so Barry stops him, telling him that he won't let this kill him, then telling Cisco to vibe him to help him remember the full translation of the language. Cisco does it, and it's just enough to get Barry to link up with the memories. Barry begins to remember being trapped in the speedforce and the letters he wrote down. In doing this, he's able to decode the language and reopen the door, that's actually a portal. Entering it.
The portal leads them to an energy chamber, with a machine in the middle, that's powered by a captured Earth-90 Flash! He's held in a force field of flash time running mode on some sort of treadmill, against his will. Barry enters flash time, and tries to talk with E-90 Barry, who tells him that the Monitor took and held him, but when he died, he was taken from his chamber and put into this machine by the Anti-Monitor. E-90 Barry tells Barry that he can't stop, as he's been trapped in an infinite timeloop of running. Barry examines the machine, discovering that it's converting the anti-matter energy that flows through the Anti-Monitor, from the antimatter universe into an energy pulse that's wiping the earths out. And E-90 Barry's powering it. Barry begins to think that maybe he can avoid the crisis altogether.
As this happens, Batwoman and E-1 Bruce Wayne, along with the others, defend civilians as they're being evacuated out of the area by Atom, E-78 Superman, the CCPD and the Flashes, as Martian Manhunter phasing through things to get people out from unreachable places. Bruce and Kate question if this all matters, if they can actually stop this. Kate coming to the conclusion that she didn't think they could before, but she understands now that hope isn't something that exists in the absence tribulation, but the opposite. Bruce stating it as well, that by giving up they dishonor what it means to do this. Kate states that she's glad Bruce's here with her, as, to her surprise, she's actually missed him.
Barry sees that the only way to get E-90 Barry out of the machine without the energy output of the machine killing E-90 Barry, off (what Cisco cuts in and calls) the cosmic treadmill and stop the pulse is by overloading it, and tries to generate enough lightning, but he's still weak from Bloodwork and using immense energy to punch the hole to grab Oliver in Part 1. Wally suggests he try. But Barry concludes that none of the speedsters could get to the limit it would require.
Harbinger says she knows who could and transports away, getting Jefferson Pierce, AKA Black Lighting, her using some of the last bit of power she's has left. He objects, enraged, at being taken from his earth, angrily asking if his daughters, his wife, will live, and when being told that she doesn't know, he furiously tells her to save them, and when she says she only had enough power to get him. Harbinger tells him that they need his ability to exhibit immense electrical energy, telling the others the Monitor examined him because he had this ability.
Barry pushes Jefferson to help, telling him, "The only way our daughters have a real chance at being safe is to do this". Jefferson questions him on that, "out daughters", but Barry shakes it off, correcting himself, "your daughters". Jefferson, after a moment of consideration, then agreeing.
And with that we have the same scene of Black Lightning doing his thing, giving it his all to overload it.
Barry makes the call on the teams actions as they do this:
In this Cisco is able to open a breach within the force field around the cosmic treadmill.
Caitlin Killer Frost's out and fires a freezing blast to slow down the cosmic treadmill.
With Wally putting Ralph into flashtime, this allows him to quickly reach into the breach and grab E-90 Barry, pulling him out.
The machine shuts down. Barry and the team celebrate and then get out of there. Not seeing the antimatter energy begin to build inside the core and glow.
We learn that there are 4 earths remaining: Jay Garrick's Earth, Black Lightning's Earth, Earth 1 and Earth 97. This, of course not including the remains of Supergirl's Earth on Earth 1.
Meanwhile a battle with some of the shadow creatures. Sara and Mia are pinned down by several, when suddenly a sonic blast blindsides them them back. E-2 Laurel Lance being the source, as she steps into their view, in Black Canary garb. Sara almost reacts with happiness, before catching herself, realizing that this isn't her Laurel. E-2 Laurel extends her hand to help Sara up, a similar confusion of emotions evident. Sara bypasses the hand to stand up on her own. Mia asks what she's doing here. She responds that she was on her way already, saying that the team thought it was best to stay behind and deal with their things there, and wait for Oliver. Sara explains that he's gone. E-2 Laurel questions that. Mia dismissing it, saying that they don't know what happened to him. Sara snaps back that he's gone.
Lex works on the machine, atop STAR Labs, connecting it to the power grid of the city, it shutting down the power within a 20 block radius.
E-78 Superman and Martian Manhunter fly back to E-38 Superman and Supergirl, and tell them that everyone who was around STAR Labs has been evacuated. E-78 Superman suggests Jjonn go see if the CCPD need help with the citywide evacuation, as his powers could be beneficial, and they'll stay here and guard STAR Labs. E-38 Superman and Kara agree with that. Jjonn does as well.
Barry goes to Iris and they embrace, her asking what's happening. Barry explains to her that they stopped the antimatter machine, which they both say means he won't vanish. Iris is overjoyed, but then asks why the red skies are remaining. Barry says that it must be something else. Barry's uncertain though. Iris suggests maybe the speedforce knows. Barry agrees. Iris is clearly torn. Barry asks if she's okay. Iris blows it off, saying that it's fine, it's nothing that can't wait, until after all this, now that they know he'll come back.
E-78 Superman uses a combination of his heat vision and cold breath to incapacitate a couple dozen shadow creatures coming for STAR Labs.
As Mia keeps an eye out, E-2 Laurel asks Sara why she snapped at her. Sara tells her that the last thing Mia needs is to have a delusion that Oliver's alive. E-2 Laurel questions trying to dismiss her hope in seeing her dad again, suggesting that THAT is the last thing she needs. Sara argues that with the losses she's suffered she's learned not to bury the situation. E-2 Laurel tells Sara that she's lost everyone from her earth, and that's shown her to not give up hope. Sara relents, saying she's sorry for that, she didn't know. Sara agrees that maybe she's right, then saying with a smirk that it sounds like something her Laurel would say. E-2 Laurel laughs that off.
In the waverider medbay, Barry watches E-90 Barry sleep, being helped by the waverider, with Cisco, Caitlin and Ralph there. He tells Cisco to give him a brief vibe boost and he'll do the rest, to put him into a hypnotic state to link up to the speedforce, then telling them to go help the others and he'll do this. This happens, Barry coming face to face DCEU Barry! Same scene, but after DCEU Barry fades away, Barry finds himself caught in a crackling lighting field.
He yells out for the speedforce to tell him him what's happening. The speedforce speaking in a distorted voice of his mom, telling him that the antimatter of crisis is damaging the dimension of the speedforce as well. Barry tells it that the antimatter has been stopped. The speedforce tells him that it can't be stopped and that the only way for Barry to stop is to sacrifice himself. Barry tries to argue otherwise. But the speedforce insists. Barry asks for it's help. It replying that they've been too damaged to help. Barry drops to his knees, in emotional exhaustion, saying that he's too weak to stop it. Until he feels a hand touch his face, him looking up to see his daughter, Nora West-Allen. She tells him that the multiverse needs him to do this. Barry questions how he can if he couldn't even save her, just like he couldn't save his mom and dad, concluding that everyone he loves will die and he'll be all that's left, then beginning to breakdown. Nora says that he still has a family, people who care about him, who can help, finally telling him to, "Run Barry, run" and he's suddenly snapped out of the speedforce, back in the waverider, still an emotional wreck.
Jefferson Pierce, Black Lightning, watching Barry, asks him if he's okay. Barry doesn't answer. Jefferson tells him that he heard him say the name Nora, as he was in that trance he was in, asking Barry if that was the name of his daughter. Barry, shocked that he knows, asks him how he does. Jefferson explains he can read the desperation and the pain on his face right now, along with his slip up earlier, concluding that she died. Barry tells him it was months ago. He says he's sorry. Barry tells him it was his fault, he pushed her away, he was too angry with her, to understand what she was feeling and that if he had maybe she wouldn't have disintegrated in his arms, finishing that maybe he deserves to die for that, to never see her again. Jefferson aggressively pushes back against that, telling him he can't imagine what he's feeling right now, and that he wouldn't know what to do with himself if he lost his girls, then snapping back that Barry still needs to step up. Barry says that he can't, he's too weak. But Jefferson's heard enough and slaps Barry, telling him that his family, everyone's family, is going to die, if this isn't stopped and they need all hands on deck for that, saying that somewhere in him, Barry that his powers are a gift from God, and that they're here for this purpose, that they're chosen for it. Barry has a moment, remembering Oliver's line from the Pilot, "I don't think that bolt of lightning struck you, Barry. I think it chose you." Barry tells Jefferson that a friend told him something like that once. Jefferson states that he wasn't lying. Barry, with resolve, agrees.
Atom assists Harry and Lex in working out some final touches on the machine, Atom telling them that they're going to need something more powerful to get this to reach the levels necessary. Harry and Lex begin arguing about something else that's missing, almost competing to reach the solution, then concluding that they need something that can project intense sonic frequencies across distances. Atom realizes what they could do and asks, "Can we use someONE?"
We show an establishing shot of Jesse and Jay speeding around the remainder of the city, looking for more civilians.
Barry superspeeds up to Wally (whose using his speed powers to bring people), Cisco (whose using his breach powers so Frost and Ralph can get people from other parts of the city and bring them there, in spite of it clearly hurting him, his nose bleeding) and the others, with the CCPD, at the edge of the city, ushering people out, Joe in attendance, making the calls on where to take them, as Jjonn phases through buildings with civilians and placing them with the others.
Barry tells them the negative speedforce tracker isn't working, suggesting it must be the antimatter getting stronger, stating that he needs to find Thawne. Cisco questions why he'd think it's the antimatter, as they stopped it. Barry tells them that they didn't and that it's somehow still going. Cisco insists that they get back to that machine and do something, figure out what's wrong. Barry states that they don't have time. Killer Frost turns back into Caitlin and she says that they can't let Barry die. Ralph states that Barry's their friend and The Flash has to live. Wally watches on contemplatively at this, then saying that the city needs the Flash.
Barry shuts them all down, stating definitively that no, they can't put the multiverse over his life, ordering them to stay on mission and then apologizes first for it, before asking Cisco to give a quick vibe to see anything that can lead him to Thawne.
Cisco conflict-ingly does it, seeing Thawne standing, but not seeing any defined shapes around him. Thawne then turns, looking right at Cisco, smiling, telling him hello again, and tell Barry he knows where he can find him, then stating that if Cisco joins him he'll have a place in his antimatter world. Cisco spits at him, then snapping out of the vibe, nose bleeding, and tells Barry that Thawne said he knows where he can find him. Barry realizes where he is.
Lex, Harry and Ray link up E-2 Laurel to the machine, Sara and Mia watching on. E-2 Laurel and Sara question how this works, Lex and Harry explaining in complicated science talk, and Ray simplifying it with essentially resetting the harmonic frequency of E-2 Laurel, so that her cry lines up with the pulse.
Mia asks if it'll hurt. Ray, Harry and Lex all exchange looks, Ray saying he thinks so, Harry being conflicted, as Lex tries to signal him to say nothing, but Harry ignores him and says it could kill her. Sara, worriedly, tells E-2 Laurel that she doesn't have to do this. E-2 Laurel, with conflict, states that yes, she does. Mia tells her that there are better ways to get revenge on the Anti-Monitor without getting herself killed. E-2 Laurel explains that that's not what this is about, saying that he destroyed her home, her family, and (looking at Sara) concludes that she won't let that happen again. Sara, eyes teary, says that she really is Laurel. E-2 Laurel, with a small smile, tells Sara that she tries.
Barry reaches his childhood house, de-hooding, and enters, finding Eobard, not wearing his hood as well, just lounging in the living room, where his mom and dad were killed. Eobard says that it's nice to see him, stating that there's honestly no one he'd rather celebrate this day with. Barry asks him how he's keeping the antimatter going. Eobard laughs at him, gleefully explaining that he's not doing anything. The antimatter isn't coming from a machine, but from the Anti-Monitor himself and his connection with the antimatter universe, the machine essentially only being a funnel for the energy to focus it on individual universes, from outside of time, concluding with, that by Barry stopping the machine he guaranteed it to overload with the antimatter energy, imploding and taking all the remaining universes out in one fell swoop, mocking Barry with the statement of it being all because the Flash didn't wanna die. Eobard then says that that's why he wanted to experience this here, as it's only fitting to celebrate the multiverse dying for the same reasons Barry's parents did, that his daughter did, because of Barry himself. Barry's eyes ignite in his rage with yellow lightning. Eobard only smiling in return, his eyes glow red, telling him to come on Flash.
Them both superspeeding their hoods on, Barry furiously attacks Eobard, them tearing apart the inside of the house, very similar to what happened when they fought around Nora Allen.
Eobard speeds out of the house, leading Barry on a chase into the city, outrunning him, picking up a broken piece of rebar and slashes away at an abandoned oil tanker truck as he speeds by, and when Barry gets there, he releases a lightning snap of his finger, it erupting the oil tanker in a blaze of fire, blowing Barry back into the wall of the building across the street. Eobard quickly zooms over, placing his foot on Barry's throat, choking him, as he tells Barry to give and let it happen. Barry states that he'll never give up, even if he succeeds he'll never give up trying to stop him. Eobard simply grins sinisterly, stating that he knows, and he'll always make sure he suffers for it.
Eobard, with readiness, states that it's time for everything to end, then superspeeding away, leaving Barry on the ground. Barry tries to get up, but is helped when E-90 Barry shows up and extends his hand. Barry asks him if he's feeling better, him replying with a thanks for saving him and that that waverider fixed him up real good.
Reverse Flash speeds in, standing before STAR Labs, welcoming everyone to the celebration of his perfect victory over the Flash.
Ray, with his comlink tells everyone that Reverse Flash is at STAR Labs.
Jesse and Jay try to superspeed there, before their powers start to fizzle out, and they drop in agonizing pain.
Black Lightning comes at the top of STAR Labs to helps power Lex and Harry's machine.
The Supermen and Supergirl confront Eobard. Naturally, the 2 Supermen try to talk him down, as Kara glares at Eobard. He blows them off, yelling, proudly, that he will gladly destroy every earth everywhere, if it meant the Flash suffered for it.
Lex watching the ensuing situation from atop STAR Labs simply says that he's never related to someone more.
The Supers step forward, stating that they will stop him, Kara's eyes beginning to glow with anger, as she tells him that he will pay for the death of the earths, her earth. Eobard mocks that. E-38 Superman tries to temper what he can see is Kara's rage beginning to boil over. But it's all for not when Eobard simply says that he'll make sure everyone they care about dies, and she blasts her heat vision at him. Eobard dodges it of course, but also opens a breach in his place that opens up in front of E-38 Superman, her heat vision going through that and blasting him back. Kara reacts quickly, in shock, regret, as she sees E-78 Superman rush to him and help him up , but then anger again, blasting Eobard with a continuous stream of heat vision, him outrunning it every step of the way, then igniting a lightning bolt and throwing it at Kara, it dropping her. Eobard cackles at their failed efforts, then saying that as fun as this is, he's got more important things to do, calling the entire army of shadow creatures to him, stating that he has a date with destiny, superspeeding away.
E-38 and E-78 help Kara up, E-78 telling them to go after Eobard, he'll take care of the shadow creatures. E-38 Superman asks him if he's sure. E-78 Superman affirms that he is. Kara redirects her emotions, to tell E-78 Superman to be careful, who shoots back with a glint in his eye and a smirk, that he always is. They take off, leaving him in front of the horde. He readies himself intensely.
E-38 Superman and Kara chase after Eobard. Eobard phases through a wall, forcing Kara to smash through it, but just misses him as he phases through the floor. She x-rays it, looking for him, not seeing him.
Meanwhile Barry, E-90 Barry and Wally speed up to Jay and Jesse. Wally quickly sees Jesse and Jay clearly in weakened and goes to check on Jesse. Barry and E-90 are beginning to show similar effects, E-90 Barry barely able to stand. E-90 Barry takes a moment to reflect on Jay looking like him and that he has the same name his brother had. Barry checks on Jay and asks them all if they're okay. They all agree that something's wrong. Wally asks what's happening to them. Barry realizes the speedforce is beginning to suffer from the crisis and tells them this and that the speedforce must be beginning to drain. Barry tries figuring out what to do. Wally asks why he's not feeling it as well. Barry snaps that he doesn't know, but then apologizes, saying he needs to talk to Iris.
Eobard grabs Kara from behind, phasing her into the floor, then getting out and laughing at her. E-38 Superman superspeeds up behind him, but Eobard reacts even faster, turning around and phasing his hand into his chest. Eobard simply says that Superman may be fast, but he's faster, before taking off. Kara breaks out of the ground and rushes to E-38 Superman, whose holding his chest in pain, spitting up blood. Kate lands next to Kara from her grappling hook and Bruce gets there on a motorcycle shortly after. Bruce quickly checks on Clark's wounds, telling him that it looks like he's beginning to heal already.
Barry gets to Iris, whose now with Joe at the edge of the city and tells them that they have to get out. Iris refuses and Joe says that it's not like they have anywhere else to be. Barry, with all his strength, brings him and Iris into flashtime, the agony of it tearing him apart. Barry tells her that his speed is beginning to wane and he saw himself in the crisis and he doesn't have enough power left to do that, he failed the multiverse, like he failed Nora and Iris, apologizing for letting his inability to let go of his anger against Eobard. Iris rejects that, telling Barry that she may have been angry with him at the time but she doesn't want him blaming himself for Nora, they're not perfect and they made mistakes, but Thawne was responsible and they can't let him destroy more families. Barry agrees, but he questions how when his energy is being drained and more. With that, Barry looks at his hands, the same ones that are bringing Iris into flashtime and realizes what he can do. He starts to leave, but Iris hold onto his hand, her eyes teary and uncertain, her other hand on her stomach. Barry realizes right away and says it, that she's pregnant. That's what she wanted to tell him before. Barry takes a moment to hold her. It's silent, mournful. Barry doesn't want to leave her anymore. But Iris tells him to go, that he has to, telling him to run. He tells her he loves her, as she does the same, and he runs, his hand slipping out of hers and taking off, leaving her there.
E-78 Superman is barely holding the creatures back. Atom comes in to help.
Barry, in agony, but pushing through it, speeds up to the other Flashes and tells them that they can save the multiverse, together. When they ask what that means, Barry says that if he can give others his speedforce and let them enter flashtime, they can give it to him and he may have enough power to do what needs to be done. Each one suggests they do this, but Barry tells them that they're either too weak already or inexperienced, it has to be him and they have to let it be him or risk everything they love. They all surround Barry in a circle, him in the middle and with every ounce of strength they have left, they release their energy into Barry, the lightning flowing into him...
Eobard superspeeds onto the STAR Labs rooftop, and up to E-2 Laurel, nearly struck by Sara with her staff and Mia with her arrow, who stand in defense of her. But he catches them quickly, telling Sara that she won't stop him this time, and knocks her back with a superspeed kick, simultaneously throwing the arrow back at Mia, it hitting her in the leg, crippling her, telling them it'll be his pleasure to make them watch.
The energy of the speedforce flows into Barry, crackling and with that Barry is at full strength again, the lightning flaring up in his eyes.
As Eobard is about to kill E-2 Laurel...
Barry, in complete superspeed mode, sweeps in and, with a lightning energized punch, blows Eobard off of the roof of STAR Labs.
Lex and Harry activate the machine, and with a sonic explosion practically emanating from E-2 Laurel's whole body, the pulse echoes throughout the streets. The pulse disconnects Eobard from his control of the shadow creatures.
Eobard is enraged at this, stating that it's impossible, he should be too weak.
Barry simply states that he's not alone and he's done letting Thawne make him think he is.
But then antimatter red lightning crackles in the sky, and Eobard begins to laugh, telling him that it doesn't matter anyway, he's still too late.
Out of a blood red warped breach the Anti-Monitor walks onto the STAR Labs roof. The antimatter explosion beginning to expand from that.
Kara lands on the roof opposite.
E-78 Superman flies at him head first, but is grabbed, his head caved in and thrown like a ragdoll.
Kara is horrified and goes for him, him simply blocking her attack.
Kate and Bruce are powerless from below.
Sara and Mia are powerless from the roof, as he walks up to E-2 Laurel and grabs her by the throat, lifting her up. Sara, in horror, begins to go for him. The Atom tries to blast him.
Barry, in flashtime, watches, knowing there's nothing he can do to physically stop him, but in that moment, he readies himself and punches a breach through the universe. He runs and runs, faster than he ever has, opening multiple breaches into each of the remaining earths, superspeeding through them all just as fast. Eobard superspeeds up to him, blows between him and Barry ensuing. Eobard is finally able to get a hold on him, telling him that he'll die from this. Barry, in resolve, phases out of Eobard's grip, him falling through Barry and is cast out, in a yell of rage, into the remaining energy of the speedforce. Barry maintains his course, superspeeding through every earth, circling it a million times over it, all the remaining earths beginning to vibrate at another frequency, the energy of it overtaking him, as he yells out in pain, the energy emanating from his body as he begins to be consumed by it and disintegrate. The only remnants, the flash ring and the burned, scorched flash suit symbol, which fall before Iris and Joe.
Suddenly all is still. All the destruction has stopped. The red sky of antimatter is erased.
Wally, somehow able to use his speed, rushes up to Iris and Joe. Iris in tears, inconsolable, breaks down, to her knees, Joe trying his best to hold her, but his heartbreak showing. Kara lands in front of them, her eyes full of mourning, realizing what's happened. Wally tries to comfort both, but is unsure how, then picking up the flash ring that remains. Kara carefully walks up to Joe and Iris and kneels down before Iris, picking up the flash symbol, telling Iris how sorry she is.
But suddenly the crisis isn't the only thing that's been stopped. Everything has, everything freezing.
And in a flash of light, Kate, Ray, Sara, Kara, Lex, Jjonn and Wally find themselves in the vanishing point. They all wonder what's happened and how they got here.
And are then told the answer, by Oliver, now the Spectre. He tells them that Barry burned himself alive to save the remaining universes from the Anti-Monitor, phasing them all out of the his reach, where time stands still, the vanishing point, but everyone else is unable to survive here and have been put in stasis in this outer dimension. They ask why they haven't. Oliver answers that that's on him and tells them that the only way the earths can be safe is if they destroy the Anti-Monitor for good.

2020.08.27 11:27 ketocheetohpuffs A Very Brief Rebuttal to those who voted NO on the removal of the TAP Monument

"We gotta be brave, we gotta be bold, and we gotta tell this story." - Lt. Gov Matt Pinnell at the Greenwood Rising groundbreaking ceremony August 21, 2020

Smoke a bowl, turn on some music and join me....
As my reality quickly shifted in March forcing me to become an eccentric hobbit, I had to totally bail on my Rocky Mountain powder chasing fantasies and learn to cope. I fed my outdoor addiction by taking extra long dog walks, mostly to my new favorite park in Tulsa, the beautiful mayhem that is Owen Park. I went there specifically to check out an old monument I had heard about online, the Tulsa Association of Pioneers Monument, or as the kids call it, the Back to Back Genocide Champions Trophy Monument, the B2BGCTM. I think this is one of the most interesting things in Tulsa, personally. It’s like a poetic mystery but painfully obvious at the same time. No one knows anything about it that I’ve ever talked to, and no one really wants to talk about it. It’s a classic Tulsa public secret.
Some would say, if there’s one thing Oklahoma does well it’s barbecue. That may be true, we do a mean que, but I’ve been to hundreds, and no barbecue I’ve ever been to, or ever heard of, besides this event, has ever been epic enough to call for a monument to be made in recognition of its attendees' greatness. The monument’s poetic timeline, from 1921-1964, coincides perfectly with the biggest act of racial violence in the US since the civil war, and the biggest piece of civil rights legislation ever signed. The date engraved into the marble monument, September 21, 1921, doesn't even match the newspaper article that talks about a similar barbecue, so that adds a layer of interest. Maybe there were two BBQ’s, maybe the marble slab typewriter typo’d the engraving on the surely mega expensive rock, or maybe the entire newspaper is incorrect. Additionally, this is not where the monument originally sat, nor are all the pieces currently displayed even original. It’s location adds an extra layer of fucketry, when you find out that the Indian Memorial in close proximity celebrating the three tribes borders, was there for fifteen years before the B2BGCTM was erected close by. Now that's a biggo fuck you if you ask me. Hold on, I’m trying to walk and type this on my phone but my idiot dog stopped and smelled something he had to pee on
In a time where I saw the local concert hall change its name from Brady Theater, the name Peter Mayo gave it, back to its original name, The Tulsa Theatre, and a time where I saw Tate Brady’s star removed from out front of the Cain’s, I began to become more curious about our city’s past. Hell, Oklahoma history in general, all of a sudden became overwhelmingly interesting. Especially now that we’re in Tulsa, MCN. So anyway, I took a walk to Owen Park and when I got there I was underwhelmed to say the least. A discolored marble monument with an engraving talking about a barbecue sat just out front of the Fire Station, between the Indian Memorial and a Children's Museum, and close by what is said to be “The Oldest House in Tulsa.” The park is sprawling with mature trees everywhere, a sweet little walking bridge, a random set of old concrete steps once used for getting into carriages, a really cool, and what I’m sure is under-used, mini amphitheatre. The pond was murky with excessive trash collecting where the drainage meets the water. My fishing club would be sad, but I saw fish in there as I walked the banks, so there’s that. There are fish in that pond, don’t let anyone tell you there’s not, especially not the people representing the neighborhood on a city committee. Those people may just not know anything. After making my rounds and seeing the haggard horseshoe pit and imaginary volleyball courts, I made my way back to the monuments at the entrance. The sun was hitting it just right, it totally looked like a dick. Sweet.
I walked up, read the engraving,

This stone marks the ground where "Old Timers"
who had lived in Tulsa and vicinity over
thirty years, met on Sept. 21, 1921,
at a Barbecue given by
Dr. Sam G. Kennedy and Dr. Jim Kennedy.
They all visited with old friends,
reminisced and organized the
"Tulsa Association of Pioneers"
to Commemorate and Perpetuate
the memory of those
"Sturdy Pioneers" who, by their
sacrafice and effort
helped to build a great Empire.

After finding Bynum’s and Brady’s name on the monument, someone pointed out the date, September 21, 1921. Wow, I thought, three and a half months after the most violent act of racial violence since the civil war and these people decided to have a barbeque to celebrate their championing of the city. Interesting. Why are there parentheses around “Sturdy Pioneer” and “Old Timers”? Who are these Kennedy people? Can JM Hall spell sacrifice or does sacrafice mean something totally different? He can’t spell and he got the date wrong? Jesus. What “great Empire” did they manage to build?
I went back to read about the time between the massacre and the barbecue. My heads are familiar with the days between, this is similar, but from blood to barbecue sauce. You can follow along if you want, break on thru to the other side with us as we turn the upside down inside out.
Before I mentally moved entirely back to 1921, and just read the daily paper like its red hot news fresh off the press everyday, I started with September 21, 1921 and checked out the Tulsa Daily World from that date. What I found was not a BBQ. What actually happened on September 21, 1921 was a state wide confederate reunion southern ball at Convention Hall, the building we now know as The Tulsa Theatre. Interesting. Confederate Reunion, I thought, that sounds like a nightmare. Turns out the State Wide Confederate Reunion of 1921 wasn’t the first confederate reunion hosted by Tulsa.
Just in case we gotta stop and talk about what the Civil War was about, it was definitely about slavery. It’s not that it wasn’t about states rights, it was just specifically about the states rights to own people. But if you tell the story a certain way long enough, the southern lost cause becomes history. So, we can move on...
In 1914, some 5000 confederate veterans camped out in Owen Park, but that was nothing compared to the National Confederate Reunion of 1918. Just look at this collectors edition Tulsa World. A quick who’s who for the heroes on the cover… top left is President of the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis. Tate Brady presided over the 1921 reunion with a custom gavel made from a tree from Davis’ estate in Biloxi, MS “The Beauvoir.” Story is, Davis would sit under that tree as he wrote the “south’s greatest book,” The Rise and Fall of the Confederacy. I’ve been to the Beauvoir, thanks Gramma and Grampa. Katrina killed that tree I’m sure, but maybe not. Top Right is General Robert E Lee, you recognize his name from the oh wait, it’s Council Oak Elementary now(Lt Gov Matt Pinnell’s School). “Black” Jack Pershing, not what he was actually called but I'm gonna church it up. People thought this man was so fucking good at being an American they made him his own rank in the military. I’m not joking, and they’ve never done that for anyone else. Nathan Bedford Forrest, bottom left, he ran the klan for a while but poetically is the namesake for Forrest Gump, to remind us that “sometimes things don’t make no sense.” Man of the Hour, Woodrow Wilson(Lt Gov Matt Pinnell’s School), front and center, Klansman loved him. For instance, proud klansman Charley Guthrie named his son after the bastard, we know him as Woody. President Wilson was communicated with directly from this reunion, and offered full support of the war from the grey coats. Of course we support it right? We’re a confederate oil production town in a war time economy. Honestly, look at that cover, you just gotta love the Gump / Guthrie irony right now.
Anyway, look through this paper, see how the city rolls out the red red carpet for these people. They pretty much make a Tulsa for Tesla video but way better. The Southern Memorial Association is here, check out their goals, which sound super familiar, especially the marble monument part. Businesses take out full page ads, half page ads, train rides are free into the city, there’s a fair, there’s a parade, movies are cheaper than they’ve ever been. Well, Majestic Theatre is only showing one movie, The Birth of a Nation, and it plays everyday for four days straight, 12 hours a day. This is a three hour movie originally entitled “The Klansman” playing back to back to back to back non-stop for back to back to back to back days, for never before seen prices. Wow. The parade, they say, extends for miles. They ask every single automobile owner in the city to make available their cars for the parade. Five hundred horses are gathered for this parade. They literally go on to say that their party is bigger than mardi gras. They gave away cars at the national reunion to several lucky racists.
In that newspaper, specifically, they tell a story about the “birth of our city,” if you will. From Little Acorns Big Oaks Grow. Read the story. These dudes are glorified as the fathers of our city, in a special edition of a paper that is glorifying the birth of a nation. They say in that paper, that yeah we know Tulsa has blown up in the past twenty years since its incorporation, but what will happen in the next five years will greatly overshadow everything that's been done. Oil game was crushing it, especially with the war time needs for oil, followed by the industrial explosion after WW1. Think about all the cars they made after the economy switched from wartime to peacetime production. Catalog purchasing became popular in this time. People were told to buy. And boy did they get everyone onto buying cars. They were booming, the oil business was pretty pretty pretty good. Have you walked thru these buildings in downtown tulsa, with their fuckin tunnels? These people weren't just living it up, they were setting it up.
Ok we gotta fast forward thru some real crazy times to get back to September 1921. But, let’s keep in mind the Red Summer of 1919 and obviously the Tulsa Race Massacre that happened just months before this reunion. Also, in August 1921, just six weeks before the reunion, and a couple months after the massacre, C A Ridley came through Tulsa to fully recruit new klansman at the convention hall. Anyway, the 1921 statewide confederate reunion seems to follow the blueprint from 1918, there’s free train rides, a fair, a parade, southern memorial association is there, there’s a ball at convention hall, again the city rolls out the red carpet.
On the 17th of September 1921, Sam Kennedy hosted a BBQ, you can read about it in the Tulsa Daily World the next day. That was a Saturday, that BBQ. The day before that, the free fair started and ran all the way until the 20th, which just so happens to be the same day the confederate reunion started its three day circle jerk, how conveniently timed. Notice who makes front page headlines the two days leading up to the fair kick off, showing off their powers of protection and also charitable goodwill (hint: it’s the klan). On September 21, 1921, the date on the monument, the confederate reunion held its southern ball at the convention hall.
The next day the confederates have their parade. They loved parades. This time it was mostly automobiles because the confederate veterans were getting too old, one old timer even fell and broke himself. Here is the route of the parade, and a big HD map if you wanna try and visualize it. I imagine on a map it makes the shape of a stumpy dick, just like the monument, but I could be wrong. There’s an especially fucked up line in there where two grey coats are talking about how great of a city Tulsa has become, so much so they got their shoes shined free of charge on the way into the ball. This great city, just three and a half months prior, burned 40 city blocks to the ground after an incident "started" by a black shoe shiner.
So, here we are, the end of a massive statewide confederate reunion, It goes down like this… Confederate Idiot Voice (Donald Trump Jr will work)…”before we all go home I think it’s important to all be on the same page about something. We can’t let anyone talk poorly of the glories of the south. When we go home, we need to be sure to use all means possible to collaborate with the sons and daughters of the confederate veterans, and the historical societies, and the public libraries, and those who make school curriculums, and we need to be sure to go ahead and filter everyone’s history, so they know what the story is. Anything that talks poorly of the glories and the pride of the old south, gone. All 1100 camps, nationwide, purge the shit out of history. Make it so bad a non-American has to tell us how fuckin upside down we have it a hundred years from now. And while we’re at it, let’s be sure to continue “to perpetuate the memories” of those who got the story straight from the start. Maybe even cast into stone, history as it should be remembered. Because why the fuck else would you engrave some shit into marble, right fellas. Here Here.”
I don't think the klan was anywhere close to its most powerful point in Tulsa’s history in 1921. These guys had such a following they had to build a brand new 3000 person klavern, just to keep everyone under one roof. They called it Beno Hall, as in “Be no DigitalHypnosis or u/Blue-Steele in this building.” Right there on Main Street, just north of Cain’s, on the other side of the over pass. “During the Depression, the building housed a speak-easy, then a skating rink, then a lumberyard, and finally a dance hall before radio evangelist Steve Pringle turned it into the Evangelistic Temple of the First Pentecostal Church. In his first revival meeting, Pringle introduced a little-known Enid preacher by the name of Oral Roberts, who worked his animated, faith-healing magic on the bare lot next door. Roberts impressed in the tent atmosphere and preached with his cohort inside the vast auditorium once known as Beno Hall. His fire and brimstone was a fitting bookend to the fiery crusades of the Klan.” Shoutout ORU graduate, Lt Gov Matt PInnell. Heard ‘fitting bookend.’
Wasn’t until 1935 the TAP decided to make a monument to perpetuate the memories of their association. Now, the monument says the association started in 1921 but didn’t allow membership until 1934. This is a total and flat out assumption I am making, but I would be willing to bet they bought that marble phallus with some sort of new member fees. Anyway, they presented it to Sam Kennedy, who kept it at his farm. There were just two “shafts,” the tall one with the engraving and the little pretty perfect picnic placemat piece. The large horizontal slab with all the names was added later. Can you imagine buying the Kennedy mansion in 2020 and those two pieces of marble are in the backyard? Like in some alternate universe where the original shit stayed where it originally was, without being moved to a public park, and then additional rock slabs and storylines added to it. It hits a lot different when you think about it like that huh. When its not in "Tulsa's first park," next to the "oldest house in Tulsa."
It wasn’t until after Kennedy died, that the monument was eventually moved to Owen Park in segregated Tulsa, 1950. In 1947, The Association of Pioneers “gifted” an acre of land to the city on the terms that the monument could be erected there, and they could hold their annual picnic in the park, “Old-Timers Day.” City was like “bet.” The Association of Pioneers came back a couple months later and gave the city something like four more acres. To be honest, I don't think the monument sits where it’s supposed to sit, technically, if we look back at the 1947 Tulsa World article about placement. Anyway, it's there now, becoming more discolored every year, white naked ladies popping up late every summer. Ask anyone about it, guaranteed, they've never heard about it. If they have heard of it, you're probably talking to me, or pope, who’s also me so….
And this is the reality we’re in now. The shadow reality built for us, by people who gave not two stinky fucks about anything except acquiring polarizingly massive amounts of generational wealth, at the expense of everyone else, especially anyone in their way, especially Indians and especially Black people. This shit still exists, we see it everyday.
It's 2020, it's corona and quarantine and protest and klanny monuments sittin on stolen land, Tulsa, MCN.
But you know what’s dope as fuck, besides this 24 hour happy hour hyperlink sauce buffet, Tulsa is “our” town. It was an “old town” to people in the 1500’s… it’s been here nawmsayin, we’ve been here, as humans. People have been here in this spot for a very long time, and will continue to be if we don't kill ourselves off. What’s cool as Hell to me, is what other spot can say all that shit. This is some pretty radical shit. And here we are, the buckle on the unbuckled bible belt, the city, a contradiction of itself. Here we are trying to figure out how to move forward and how to unite people with this information. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Our common enemy is how history is told.
We gotta get the story straight, so we can start to work together. It’s time for us to use all means possible. All fucking means possible. They did. It’s time to collaborate with historical societies, and libraries, and museums, and school curriculum, and cultural centers, and concert halls, and public speakers, and public parks, and radio stations, and websites, and tv networks, and social media, and art galleries, and city committees and commissions and fuckin everything. It’s time for a full hard switch or we’re fucked. We’re gonna have to re-learn history but our kids shouldn’t have to.
AND, We should celebrate this awakening, because this is necessary. It’s time to un-learn and re-imagine. How’s this hot take… We are so super lucky to have something so tangible and mystified as this monument to be able to rally this message around. And of course we would have something so poetically perfect because this is it. This is why we’re “the center of the universe.” We’re gonna be in the national spotlight next year, just let that sink in for a little bit. How is our city going to address all this? I want my city to act in a way I can be proud of, and show people, Tulsa does it right.
Look, I’m done fucking around here, who’s with me besides flipper here? Lets move that fuckin rock into a museum, where it belongs, so that its story can be told in the great detail that it deserves. Let’s plant a bunch of trees and flowers in its place, ‘100 trees for 100 years.’ Give the park back to the people, give it back to the Earth. Make it a place of love and reconciliation, a place of understanding and empathy and community. No more monument, no more “Old-Timer’s Day.” That's just ridiculous. And move it out of the fuckin park soon so the Indian Community can enjoy their re-dedication of the Indian Memorial in peace. Let’s do this shit.
This is our Tulsa. This land, is our land, nawmsayin. We gotta come together, and we can come together in the park.
DigitalHypnosis, you can come too, you’re my pink piggy boy.

2020.08.27 09:39 HauntedSpy SKs you never might've heard of: The USA

Greetings. For a long while now, I've been compiling and continue to compile a long list of SKs (convicted and suspected) across the world, which have yet to receive an article on Wikipedia. I haven't run a countdown, but I do believe it might count in the triple digits by now. Anyway, today I decided to share one individual SK for each US state and territory, with a little information and a linked article/source to their crimes. I hope you find this information as fascinating as I do. Let us begin. ALABAMA: Curtis Grantham (1988; 3 victims) Murdered two women in Phenix City, burying them in a wooded area in Seale. Later confessed to the October murder of 32-year-old Dawn Ball, previously thought to be a victim of Christopher Wilder. Sentenced to life imprisonment. ALASKA: Gary Zieger (1971-1973; 6+ victims) Doubling as a member of a motorcycle gang who was paid to kill people, Zieger is also thought to be responsible for murdering at least three female hitchhikers around Anchorage. The true extents of his crimes remains unclear, and he himself was murdered along the Seward Highway in 1973. AMERICAN SAMOA: None to my knowledge ARIZONA: Michael Carlson (2003-2009; 3-9 victims) Shot dead his sister in Tucson in 2003, and later murdered a couple in Marana. Confessed to 9 murders in total, but his other victims, if there are any, haven't been found. Sentenced to death. ARKANSAS: Randy Gay (1978-2011; 3 victims) Murdered his father-in-law in 1978, served time and released. Murdered his father in 1991, released again. And finally, murdered a woman and dumped her body at Ouachita National Forest in 2011. Sentenced to death. CALIFORNIA: Pittsburg serial killer (1998-1999; 4 victims) Within a two-month period, four young women were killed in this little, tightly-knit community. It is believed that it's a work of a serial offender, and the Pittsburg police are searching for clues to catch him. Unidentified. COLORADO: Ronald Lee White (1987-1988; 3-16 victims) Murdered roommate and two other men in disputes/robberies, mostly surrounding Pueblo. Later confessed that he has killed 16 victims in total.

WEST VIRGINIA: Joseph Eisele (1867; 3 victims) German/Swiss immigrant known as 'The Parkersburg Murderer' who murdered three fellow immigrants for robbery purposes across the state between June and December.
