  • Cheap and safe birth control from Hobby Lobby:
    The court found these beliefs to be “sincerely held,” but I can think of another reason a craft store might oppose birth control: Non-procreative sex is the enemy of crafting. Who would latch hook if they could be having sex? And Hobby Lobby’s mainstays—sewing, crotchet, knitting, scrapbooking—are all the province of nesting breeders and virgins. (My tenth-grade scarf collection is a testament to this fact.) In fact, many of the knickknacks and craft projects for sale at Hobby Lobby double as a kind of contraceptive: guaranteed not to get you laid.
  • Public transit still unsafe for women, but that can be changed. Eve Andrews at Grist writes:
    [I]n 12 post-pubescent years of spending many, many hours on urban public transit up and down the Western hemisphere, here is an incomplete sampling of things that strange men have done to me: Masturbated in front of me (Chicago, Red Line), tried to take photos up my skirt (Brooklyn, waiting for the G train), groped me unapologetically in a crowded train car (Buenos Aires, Linea A). Allow me to repeat: I am not an exception. Quite frankly, on the spectrum of violence toward women on public transit, I think of these experiences as small potatoes — things that have been cynically laughed off with friends over drinks.
  • Rightwing financial angel Richard Mellon Scaife dead at 82: The billionaire banking and oil heir Richard Mellon Scaife has died. Two months ago he announced that he had untreatable cancer along with the remark "Some who dislike me may rejoice at the news. Naturally, I can't share their enthusiasm."

    As of March 2013, he was worth $1.4 billion. Over the years, he provided tens of millions to right-wing organizations through his control of the Sarah Scaife Foundation, the Carthage Foundation, the Alleghany Foundation and, until 2001, the Scaife Family Foundation, which his son and daughter now control. He also promoted his point of view through his newspaper, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

    Scaife's money has established or supported "activist think tanks that have created and marketed conservative ideas from welfare reform to enhanced missile defense; public interest law firms that have won important court cases on affirmative action, property rights and how to conduct the national census; organizations and publications that have nurtured conservatism on American campuses; academic institutions that have employed and promoted the work of conservative intellectuals; watchdog groups that have critiqued and harassed media organizations, and many more."

    One of his targets in the 1990s was President Bill Clinton, his attacks being a big part of what Hillary Clinton famously labeled a "vast right-wing conspiracy." He claimed in 1998 that the Clintons might be tied to the deaths of numerous administration officials and associates, a point of view that the Tribune-Review pounded on for years. He also accused Republican Kenneth Starr—the independent counsel whose investigation refuted the murder claims and led to Clinton's impeachment over the Monica Lewinsky scandal—to be a "mole working for the Democrats."

  • Most voters approve of getting out of Iraq, disapprove of Obama's recent handling of Iraq, but disapprove of Bush's handling of it more: A Quinnipiac poll found American voters say (61-32 percent) that invading Iraq in 2003 was wrong and that President Obama was right (58-37 percent) to withdraw the troops in 2011. But by 55-37 percent, they disapprove of the way Obama is handling the situation in Iraq now.
  • British Medical Association calls for end of investment in fossil fuels: The motion, apparently approved by about two-thirds of the members who voted, is part of a growing divestment movement in the United Kingdom and internationally.
    Supporters of disinvestment argue on two main grounds. They say avoiding the worst impacts of climate change demands a rapid move away from fossil fuels; and if world leaders agree to do this, they say, most oil and gas will have to be left in the ground as unburnable, becoming “stranded assets.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      Karen Rothmyer, then a reporter for the WSJ:

      Richard Scaife rarely speaks to the press. After several unsuccessful efforts to obtain an interview, this reporter decided to make one last attempt in Boston, where Scaife was scheduled to attend the annual meeting of the First Boston Corporation.

      Scaife, a company director, did not show up while the meeting was in progress. Reached eventually by telephone as he dined with the other directors at the exclusive Union Club, he hung up the moment he heard the caller's name. A few minutes later he appeared at the top of the Club steps. At the bottom of the stairs, the following exchange occurred:

      "Mr. Scaife, could you explain why you give so much money to the New Right?"
      "You fucking Communist cunt, get out of here."

        and only white male property owners had any role at all in the government. (And they did own the taverns where meetings were held.) If you look at who was in the Continental Congress, they're drawn from the wealthiest men in each colony, planters and merchants and other oligarchs. They didn't want to pay British taxes and import duties, but they were hardly revolutionaries in terms of changes to social class or letting the 99% have any say in anything. I find it more accurate to call it the "War of Independence" rather than "the Revolution."

  •  No more pride (3+ / 0-)

    I have many examples of that but I wrote a diary this week, I put a lot of work into it and I think the end result was an act of love, a beautiful collection of photos and stories from the PrideNYC Parade.

    I knew before I posted that it would be a tough sell. Nobody knows better than I do that content is meaningless to this community and years of experience has proven to me that nobody is ever actually going to read the text. I know that for many active users this is just a recommend exchange program and I’ve gone out of my way to ostracize those idiots with their rec, tip and “good diary” comments. For the experienced it’s all become about an aggressive title followed by some Republican hating mojo in the comment section.

    But I thought I did all of the right things. I waited four days for this community to get over the catnip of obsessive misleading hyperbole generated by the Supreme Court decision. In the hope that a few could use a break from the usual repetitive piddle I waited until the hatred for just about every group that is not Obama or the Democratic leadership was evenly spread across the rec list.

    I actually thought that such progress and beauty could transcend the 24/7 of Republican regurgitation, copy and paste diaries confirming Obama’s goodness, responses to Republicans by Democrats who hold no office and increasingly creative means of blaming the media to mask the fact that Democrats give our reporters almost nothing to add to the national debate.  

    Yesterday I thought wrong. After two hours the piece had eleven recs and six comments. 28 well composed photos of beautiful people enjoying the fruits of their hard work toward political progress with well thought out explanations of each composition couldn’t even begin to compete with shoddily written stories about Republican bullshit, couldn’t even generate enough interest to qualify for the low threshold of Jotter’s List.

    I posted again today Photos from the 2014 Pride March in NYC. It did a little better. Enough people did the rec and run to hover about the low end of the rec list. Remediator did much to save it from the scrap heap. The diary got posted to three other communities and there were even a few decent comments besides Remediator’s.

    But a celebration of a progressive victory and the people who made it possible has really become so foreign to this community. Just look at the rec list and the front page for an example of the means of improving progressive values DKos style. All you’ve got are Republicans.

    "Twice Right" is not an accurate characterization of Obama's 2011 withdrawal from Iraq, because he never wanted to leave.  Even he admits it.   If he did the right thing, it was only because he was forced to by the Iraqi government.

    In fairness to the diarist, the inaccuracy was part of the Quinnipiac link, which includes the following quote:

    The 2003 war in Iraq was the wrong thing to do, American voters say 61 - 32 percent, and President Barack Obama's decision to withdraw all U.S. troops in 2011 was the right thing to do, voters say 58 - 37 percent in a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today.
    Again, even President Obama admits it was not his decision to withdraw all U.S. troops in 2011.  He made that crystal clear in his June 19th press conference:
    Q: Just very quickly, do you wish you had left a residual force in Iraq? Any regrets about that decision in 2011?

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, keep in mind that wasn’t a decision made by me. That was a decision made by the Iraqi government.

    Very sloppy on the part of Quinnipiac to produce such a poorly researched product.

    Maybe it was snark--but still.

    I have kids, I scrap book because I take my kids on awesome trips and to lots of fun, unique stuff, day and night. I want photos, but more than unnamed faces stuffed in shoe boxes, I want ordered books that can be passed down from generation to generation, where my kids can show their kids, what life was like.

    We also use a form of scrap booking to catalog disappearing wildlife too. Like the weather records of old being used to gauge climate change, such collections might also one day prove useful in figuring out what all has been lost in urban and suburban wildlife settings.

    Crafty people, artists, and such are not nesting breeders. Don't refer to women that way, that's really fucked up. I had kids. That's not a sin last time I checked. I don't need people treating me like that.

    First I am a virgin, then a slut and now a fucking breeder---soon I will be a hag.

        People actually believe that shit even if they don't acknowledge it. It comes out in their behavior. Be a childless female, have a baby and watch 70 percent of your friendships just dry up.

        They think that the transition will make you boring. Because they cannot conceive how hard you have to work to take care of an infant after being pregnant for 9 whole months. And you get kicked to the curb like a worn out dolly.

        Well guess what--THAT SUCKS and I am done with it.  

        Stay up for 18 or 20 hrs a day, caring for an infant and see how fun you are. That's what I would tell them. You stay at home to do things because there is work to be done and sometimes because you are just too goddamn tired to leave. It doesn't last forever but it has to be done.

        The only job I had left me that sleep deprived, was the military in Bootcamp during hell week. So having friends disappear, that was just awesome. Having to deal with the attitude depicted in the cheap shot listed above while going through all that? Priceless (snark). Just what I needed. Just what every mom or dad with a new baby needs.

    A Quinnipiac poll found American voters say (61-32 percent) that invading Iraq in 2003 was wrong and that President Obama was right (58-37 percent) to withdraw the troops in 2011. But by 55-37 percent, they disapprove of the way Obama is handling the situation in Iraq now.
    The current Obama Iraq ratings are misleading since the 55% will include both people who think we need to reoccupy and those who thing we shouldn't send another serviceman to Iraq.  It's like the Obamacare disapproval numbers which lump the repealers with the single-payer supporters.

    Isn’t it ironic to think that man might determine his own future by something so seemingly trivial as the choice of an insect spray. ~ Rachel Carson, Silent Spring ~

  •  Here is What is Really Important (0+ / 0-)

    A celebrity can still wear a bikini at HER age!!!  (Courtney Cox- WOW who knew!!)  Who says people who don't have to work and can work out all day and pay for cleanses/body douches, cant look good!!!!!

    Scafe is gone, but will the GOBP really miss him with the Inbred Koch Bros passing on millions from raping the Earth??

    Larry Flynt said it best about the Kochs, when he was actually commenting on Jerry Fallwell.  The Kochs' first sexual experience was with their mom.

    I am really tired of seeing NRA and "Don't Tread On Me" bumper stickers.  These people make me sick.

    Why do Samuel Adams beer commercials never show black or minority people? Is it just a yuppie beer or are they racist?

    Why cant we do another Freedom Rider summer and send students to all of the state capitols which have passed voter suppression laws, camp out there, and shit on the lawns of those governors?

    Is Dick Cheney running on batteries now, or is he solar powered?

    Dick Cheney's first sexual experience was with his mother.

    I watched "W" the other day, again. I think it should be required viewing for all elementary and middle school students.  THIS CANT HAPPEN AGAIN

    Barbara Bush sold dope in college, and she likes Gr*ek.

    Why cant the GOBP hold their next convention in Jackson, Mississippi and return to their true roots?

    State Farm auto insurance commercials are the worst on TV.  Allstate, GEICO, and many others do much better.  Don't forget, State Farm dumped all their policy holders after a large hurricane.  BOYCOTT STATE FARM

    I would like to see a business school class taught which is called:  WHY JACK WELCH IS NOT A BUSINESS MANAGEMENT GENIUS, HE IS A M*THERF*CKER WHO ON HIS FIRST DAY AS GE CEO FIRED 100,000 WORKERS AND THEN USED THE BILLIONS SAVED TO SALVAGE HIS SH*TTY COMPANY

    Jack Welch's first sexual experience was with a cow, his second was with his mother.

    Boycott WalMart; Boycott Papa Johns; and Boycott BP
