Well done, Senate Democrats.

(And what was that? Two Democrats supported it?? Their names will be remembered....)
 
Senate Democrats Block Move to Defund Planned Parenthood...

"The Republican proposal failed to reach a 60-vote threshold needed to overcome a filibuster in a 53-46 vote that fell mostly along party lines. Only two Democrats, Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Joe Donnelly of Indiana, backed the bill.

The proposal came after a series of undercover videos were released by the Center for Medical Progress, a group of anti-abortion activists, which showed Planned Parenthood staffers and others who work with the organization discussing fetal tissue donations. The legislation was sponsored by Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa."

The bill failed to reach a 60-vote threshold by seven votes.

How you know a listicle site's code is, uh, a bit buggy.

(I love a good flatbread sandwich - I just wasn't expecting one to make this list!)

When they announced Win10 was going to be a free upgrade I expected this. They are going to try to turn themselves into a half-Facebook, half-Google Frankenstein.

Want to add a second device to your home network? $2..

Autoinstall drivers? $5.

The possibilities are endless.

The Onion strikes again...

They really have to lay off the "real news" angle - though they do cover it so well!

MILWAUKEE—Frequently choking back tears, African-American computer technician Michael Shaw bid an emotional goodbye to his wife and 6-year-old son before making his morning commute Thursday, sources confirmed.

Great interview with Gerald Casale of DEVO here. In-depth discussion of their biggest hit album, Freedom Of Choice ...

[ETA: And oh man, how did I miss the (for me) money quote?
"Devo: from the waist up, we're Kraftwerk, and from the waist down, we're James Brown." :-D ]

All these signs are precisely correct.  If you have an issue with any of them, the issue is actually yours.

+Steban Hernández "I knew it. I, just, knew it. " is not a counterargument.

Fighting I would say could be a pretty damned close match between people of different sexes because it relies on so many factors. I don't know those specific people. I couldn't even find Overseem on a google search. I'm assuming it's another spelling mistake. 

I know I'd take money on any MMA fighter against any wrestler.

As seen in a reshare (h/t +Rob Salzman​), isn't threatening to draw a weapon that way construe-able as assault - possibly felony assault?
 
And the white guy lived! He wasn't arrested or given a slap on the wrist. 

 Racial slurs were hurled at counter-protesters and threats were made.

Images. video 
Armed Confederate flag supporters, including militia members, gathered at Stone Mountain Park, Georgia, on Saturday. Many of them Openly Carried rifles. One of them almost pulled a gun on a counter-protesters who burned a Confederate flag. Confed-gun. The gun nut in the picture wasn't arrested.

+Jane Eyre Sorry…I don't follow you….That's okay.  It's easy for either party in a written conversation to misunderstand. Sorry if I offended.

Great stuff here.

Rocking the Suburbs

There's something I've been meaning to say about privilege. Sort of. Sort of about privilege, that is.

I'm a white male American. I'm cis enough to count, and while I'm not Christian, I have the t-shirt. I can check off a few boxes on the ADA checklist if I squint, but other than that, I'm pretty damned high up on the privileged hierarchy, as far as that goes.

Oh, and before anyone says I'm saying what I'm about to say to get laid (because, seriously, that's what I've been told), I'm married and not on the prowl in the slightest. And if I were, my strategy wouldn't be "say feminist things on the Internet and see how it goes".

So, now that that's all out of the way and I've established some level of credibility, here goes:

Guys, grow up. By "guys", I mean specifically the whites and the men and especially and particularly the white men. And if what follows doesn't apply to you, then good for you, move on.

You sure are a fragile group. We can't talk about privilege without someone patting you on the head and scritching you under the chin and telling you, yes, dear, white lives matter, too. Yes, dear, men get raped, too.

Look, I used to be like you. I know the feeling. Which is why I say, again, and with conviction:

Grow up, guys.

Stop derailing, stop whining, stop making us stop our mature adult conversations in order to explain to you, once again, that we know you work hard, we know you're really and truly good inside, we know that it's not you, it's the system, we know, we know, we know.

For a group of people who want the freedom to say what you want, who whine about Political Correctness ruining your opportunity to tell a joke about a Chink, a Polack, and a Wetback without people shaking their heads... you sure do need to have your feelings taken into account an awful lot.

What's wrong, buttercup? You don't like being cast into a big bucket based on the color of your skin? Neither do I. But see, as a white person, when I get judged, it's in the form of people on the Internet saying rude things about me. When black people get judged, it's in the form of not getting jobs they deserve, or being followed around when they try to shop, or being thrown to the concrete by a cop because they didn't instantly comply with a "lawful order".

In a perfect world, there would be no judgments based on skin. But since this isn't a perfect world, I know which judgment I'd rather suffer.

Or, maybe, sunshine, your frustration is at being seen as a potential rapist. Yeah, I hate that, too. I'm serious, here. It's absolutely appalling that, if I go to a party where there's alcohol and women, I have to be aware of the possibility that my getting drunk and having sex with someone could result in rape accusations. That sucks. It's completely ludicrous that, if I'm walking at night and see a woman walking alone at night, she might get tense and not want to talk to me. Poor me.

Boo-hoo.

On the other hand, women have to worry far more about actually being raped.

So, again, perfect world, sure. But I have to live in this world, and if I have to choose between "being seen as a rapist" and "being raped", well, I know which one I'd choose.

Or maybe you're pissy because some other privilege you have leads to people questioning your success or lack of being homeless, beaten, or otherwise victimized.

It doesn't matter. Stop making it about you, you, you. Stop making people tiptoe around your feelings.

Because it's gotten to the point of being beyond tiring.

I like a restaurant that takes the concerns of its patrons seriously. Glad to see that there are still places where privacy is respected!

Every time I come here I am floored by how much better their pizza is than any chain - and it supports a local business to boot! What's not to like about that?
