* So if a person is deaf and therefore can't respond instantly to verbal commands it is justified for police to shoot him on sight, but if police "can't hear" because they aren't listening to neighbors yelling that "he can't hear," it is a valid excuse for murdering an innocent person. "Captain: Oklahoma City man killed by police was deaf:" http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/police-man-holding-stick-shot-officer-oklahoma-city-49969676

* Look, Insane Clown Posse isn't my type of music, but I stand with them when the government is literally taking their kids away from their fans for attending a concert and criminalizing them over their tattoos. It's scary as fuck and a terrible precedent. I'm old enough to remember the PMRC and congressional hearings and lawsuits over rap and metal. It's an injustice that it's happening at all, which needs to stop, but I can easily foresee 45 having his minions criminalize listening to all sorts of music he personally doesn't like, and I know that hip hop and metal are definitely next on the list. Anything Goth, anything subculture, anything rebellious. We'll be stuck with Christian rocks and country and people will be doing jail time and losing custody etc. for stupid band tattoos they got in college.

I remember after Columbine having to defend my goth students in the Faculty Room, because there was a push to come down on them and treat them like dangerous criminals for liking Marilyn Manson music and black clothes. (I'd been Goth since '88, but one doesn't dress that way to teach). The first time I heard of ICP was in the oughts when two of my guys were getting hassled by admin over writing the logos on their notebook covers, so I went home and researched it, so I would know what I was talking about so I could advocate for them. Yes, there are drugs at the gatherings. There are drugs at music festivals and concerts and raves. It doesn't mean that anyone who liked the Grateful Dead or went to a Rave once is a dangerous gang member. It seems to me the FBI is going after the Juggaloes because they are poor, so don't have money for expensive legal defense, and they dress in a way that makes it hard for people, particularly in the media, to take their complaints seriously. They are easy to mock and ignore and belittle. hur, hur, people are having their lives ruined because they like to weir make up and listen to music on their days off.

Fuck that! I don't have to like the music or want to be part of their subculture to see them as human beings who need their human rights and fair treatment under the law.

This is a canary in the coal mine, and I refuse to mock people who are in danger of losing everything because the ruling party wants a police state.

* My lungs turned nasty some time after midnight and i have been feverish all day. They called me in the morning to tell me they don't make those valves anymore. Short of paying for custom machining (Might as well wish for another car), best to just drive it gently and hope. (I was given a number to call about used, but the man said it was a terrible idea to install a used one so they don't sell them. The result was I got to dream of fevers instead of dragging myself out to Honest Mechanic.

I got my first polling for the election this November, pretty clearly an attempt by the challenger to test out arguments against a City Councillor I rather like (strong environment and strong prison reform. IE: Mental health and drug diversion). I'll be fascinated to see what the focus grouped adds look like. Her arguments were pretty cleverly coded for our particular voting district. I enjoy dissecting these things.

Remember folks, please vote every legal chance you have. Vote in primaries. Vote in off year elections. Vote in every race, no matter how small and local. Unless you've got a special election, odds are where you live, the only things on your ballot this November will be small local races and ballot initiatives. Google is your friend. You may not know that candidate for treasurer or sheriff or school board, but you can generally find published opinions and which groups are endorsing them. Local election have a huge effect on your quality of life. Is the water safe to drink? How aggressive are the police? What sort of zoning regulations are there and are they building dangerous chemical plants next to elementary schools? Local elections can have a huge effect on how safe you are. If you vote every time you have a chance, you'll also have more warning when the Republicans try to take away your right to vote and more time to appeal and get your registration reinstated.

Register now, if you aren't registered already. Vote in November, even though voting for sheriff isn't as exciting as voting for president. Resist.

* The Republicans have until the end of the month to steal your health care and there is a good chance of them succeeding, as the current bill robs blue states that took Medicare expansion to give block grant bribes to red states like alaska in hopes of flipping the votes of wobbly Republicans. It also robs 30 million people of their health care, dramatically cuts Medicaid generally, and is designed to dramatically jack up prices for pre existing conditions and copays just generally.

Look, I know we are all tired, but we need to come out and fight one last time. We need the in person protests at town halls and district offices as well as in Washington. We need faxes and phone calls. We need to hold them off just a few weeks longer. Bombard your Republican Congress Critters wit personal stories. Make them listen to the people they are planning to kill. This is geometrically more important if you have Senators like Collins, Murkowski, McCain, etc., who were against or soft on previous rounds.

* I was exhausted, so went to bed super early. Unfortunately, I forgot the cough, so I ended up spending my three hours of coughing in bed not sleeping instead of spending it doing something useful. Sleep, when I got it, was not good. Today's mission was to take Squirrel to get an elderly truck he'd been gifted, which needed a new battery, but otherwise works. It turned out the battery was too far gone for the truck to make it more than a block, so I drove to the battery place where I also got my tires. I'd noticed the passenger tire was low on Monday when I last took it out, and had added air to the to do list. we pulled in and the tire guys gave it a horrified look and asked if we were there for tires. "I hope you didn't buy tat here." "I did, a couple weeks ago. I have a receipt." The man helping us today was the one who looked rather like Tyr from Almighty Johnson's and remembered me and my battery from last Spring. He took the tire off, was horrified that they'd sold it to me and replaced it free. Squirrel's battery was about 30.00, so the trip was a win all around, although it did take all afternoon and more than a quarter tank of gas. Squirrel replaced his battery and followed me home so I could get him if there were problems.

In other news, assholes moved into the apartment we share space with. I say assholes advisedly as they know I am disabled, but are clearly shell gaming the spot, moving a different car in whenever they move the other car out, so we have no change at a turn, knowing full well I'm disabled and need a spot. I feel like this is cheating. It's one thing to come home and find the spot full as the luck of the draw, but I feel like going to those lengths to fuck us over knowing full well we were lied to also is super dickish. Normally, this wouldn't be a big deal, as I'd just park in the disabled spot, but someone with a temp tag good until February is perma parked there (as in, we don;t think they've moved in in the last month). I'm guessing they are really hurt or ill and just don't leave the house for non-doctor things, so I don't begrudge them. Someone is also perma parked in B disabled, which leaves me A on the far side of the complex or random street parking up to a block away. I know objectively, it's not a long distance, for me, walking to and from parking now eats a quarter to a third of the steps I have for a given trip this last couple of weeks and given how bad those two weeks have been physically while the able bodied people hog the shared parking.... I've only spoken to them on the phone, but I hate them now.

Tomorrow, I’m also short sleeped, this time to find out how much the check engine light is going to cost me.

* I've bailed out of AHS: Cult. It was a mix of problems. the first is that while it is important to do art about microaggressions, harassment, the terror that is the straight white conservative cis male, and the horror overtaking our country, this is too on the nose, and I spend my evenings documenting this stuff and have dealt with various versions of it all my life moving about in the world. The result is it's to preachy and preaching to the choir all at once. I might have been more receptive to watching this as entertainment in another year, but this is not the time to do it this way, or it is the time to do art about it, but a little more subtle. One or the other or both. Another problem has to do with some fundamental problems I tend to have with Ryan Murphy around race. Sometimes he does better than others, but it's an area where I don't trust him and nothing I've seen so far this season around race has made me happy. I am also really not trusting his handling of mental illness here. I am hoping it will get better, but I don't trust where this is going or that things will be handled well given past experience. (Look, I love his aesthetics and when he's on, he does some really interesting things. I have enjoyed a bunch of his other things, but he tends to be pretty problematic and sometimes the one balances the other out and sometimes it doesn't for me. YMMV).

Lastly, This whole thing is pretty triggery given my personal history, and with the first factor in play, this is not a good thing for me to be watching in combination. If I'm going to do something this rough to myself I'd rather take another crack at season two of Hannibal a that has a whole lot of things relative to my interests in exchange for a similar set of triggers. This is frankly not giving me anything back in exchange for dragging me through the worst of reddit while triggering me on my personal stuff. I had reached the bit when the cheeto brother was trying to get the woman with the phobias to let him in, doing all the horrible shit rapists and abusers do to women, playing on socialization, and I thought, "I would rather be scrubbing out the litter boxes. That at least results in clean litter boxes.

So I'm out. Maybe he'll do something amazing later, but I'm pretty sure this particular ride is not for me.

* I struggled with what to say about Will when it was on, my thoughts were complicated and not easy to put into words that would make good sense. I don't agree with everything in here, and I DID want a second season to explore the Will/Kit relationship. I also have a lot of thoughts about race in the show: the things they did well and the things I'm still really angry about. For the most part though, this did a better job than I could possibly do talking about the things I was struggling to put into words, and I'm very glad someone managed it.

* I was double booked for Tuesday when I went to bed Monday night. My plan was to go and start the meating on GoB I'd spent literal months trying to arrange between two characters, play with them for an hour and half, leaving them to play in private, while I went to my rl commitment. RL was last minute cancelled so I was able to stay for the whole thing. They finished up, and just as I was ready to log off for food and lungs, someone else turned up and I had an excellent scene with him. Then there was all the wrestling with the news.

I am exhausted today. I did decide to do the Grand repotting. My suspicion that if I removed the top five inches of soil and bulb onto the top of the compost layer in the new pot I could save the lower half in the pot the workmen damaged proved correct. Bonus? I found a bunch of bulbs in the bottom half, which I reburied in hopes of next year. Realistically, I need to start a new compost pot, but I haven't money for such. It looked like drizzle as I wrote this. We're scheduled for swimming tomorrow, but we'll have to see if it's cleared when I wake.

* 45 is now outright blaming the people protesting fascism for the violence perpetrated on them including things like the NAZIs clubbing a peaceful delegation of clergy and the terrorist attack that murdered an innocent woman and injured 19 other innocent people. He also gave a full throated endorsement to the NAZIs that converged on Charlotte.

I am still trying to get my head around the fact that the official position of the Republican party as represented by the President they voted for is that the NAZIs are the real victims here and that the people they physically attacked and in one case murdered are somehow the attackers.

* "Are Your Members of Congress Doing Enough to Respond to the Charlottesville Terrorist Attack?:" https://www.indivisibleguide.com/resource/members-congress-enough-respond-charlottesville-terrorist-attack/

* I am white and am often assumed to be male (I am an adrogyne), but there are few things as terrifying to me as large groups of white men, because they are generally the people insisting I do not deserve even the most basic human rights. They are generally the ones talking about rounding us up and putting us in camps or flat out killing us.

I am on the other side of the country, but seeing the Charlottesville images and hearing the associated rhetoric is fucking terrifying. The images and chants are instantly recognizable. I have often written about how much more dangerous white supremacists are in this country than radicalized muslims. White men born in this country have done 73% of the terrorist acts in this country in recent years. I can not think of a single terrorist act performed by someone who wasn't a white man in my state since I moved here in '98; I can name plenty done by white supremacists. For example, they generally try to bomb the MLK day parade in Spokane most years. I have not once been harassed or threatened by a person of colour since I moved west 'in '91. I have a whole list of harassment, threats, and attempted assaults by white cis men in those decades.

Republicans are defunding attempts to stop white terrorism and attempting to suppress reports on the real danger it poses. In five states they are trying to pass laws to legalize terrorist attacks on crowds such as occurred in Charlottesville. 45 has ordered white supremacist terrorist organizations to be moved off task force agendas and to be ignored in favour of increased harassment of innocent moderate muslims. Look, I am not a fan of Islam for pretty much the same reasons I am not fond of organized christianity, and if there is probable cause I am all for law enforcement doing what is legal and necessary to prevent attacks, but I feel like white straight Christian cis men are disproportionately a threat to public safety and law enforcement approaches to terrorism ought to reflect that and proportionate resources need to be allocated towards the real threat whether they are clinic bombers, Aryan Nation, KKK, Neo-NAZI, etc.. Police need to start arresting them when they assault people instead of attacking peaceful protesters and hunting and killing innocent black people.

This needs to stop; it needed to have stopped a long fucking time ago; and it shouldn't have taken an alarmingly loud mob with torches chanting NAZI slogans to get this discussion going on the republican side. My worry is that racist policies will continue even though some Republicans still have just enough shame to admit under pressure that NAZIs might be bad.

We went swimming anyway, and the temperature was perfect for that, the cool of the lake the perfect antidote for the muggy heat. All this was a lot of driving. I am slightly more hopeful it is belts and not breaks due to the subtleties of how it drives. My hope is to take it in Monday and talk them into checking their work. Tires and wipers are likely to be 80ish and absolutel need doing this month and i am slowly bleeding money. I'm rather scared to check, but i will have to before monday. I suspect I won't be servicing the medical debt this month which will put me further behind, but at least the lights are staying on.

* Today the sky is actually mostly blue. (More blue inland, fading to gray over the bay, but much improved. There was a pall of matte grey smoke over eveything still, making the sky look painted and flat. It is better for breathing than it was, but still not great.

We went swimming anyway, and the temperature was perfect for that, the cool of the lake the perfect antidote for the muggy heat. All this was a lot of driving. I am slightly more hopeful it is belts and not breaks due to the subtleties of how it drives. My hope is to take it in Monday and talk them into checking their work. Tires and wipers are likely to be 80ish and absolutel need doing this month and i am slowly bleeding money. I'm rather scared to check, but i will have to before monday. I suspect I won't be servicing the medical debt this month which will put me further behind, but at least the lights are staying on.

I know tax bills aren't as obviously threatening as the ACA repeal, but this is very dangerous in it's own way. It is a series of tax bills like this that have made conditions geometrically worse for working and middle class people since the time of Reagan. Like all Republican tax policy in my life time, this bill is designed to increase wealth inequality and harm people who work for their money rather than inherit it. This is yet another dramatic tax cut for the rich at the expense of everyone else that is expected to damage the economy the way all such tax cuts have done while shrinking tax revenues at a time when they are also planning to dramatically increase military spending so that they have an excuse to cut social services.

Please resist this with the same energy we resisted ACA Repeal.

If you have Republican Senators, or Democrats Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp, and Joe Donnelly call, fax, or protest in person, asking them to stand against the bill with their Democratic colleagues.

* Wow, the Cavett interview with Richard Pryor was embarrassing for Dick Cavett. He's doing the classic well meaning white person with examined racial attitudes thinking he's the exception thing. Pryor is brilliant here, turning things back on Cavett. "I don't understand hat you mean," forcing Cavett to explain himself, and thus digging himself in deeper. It's sort of a master class in making the person examine what was wrong with what he just said.

* I had impressively terrible sleep Saturday, made worse by a wrong number and a resurangce of the all over allergy rash I've been fighting all week and thought I'd beaten. On return from the bathroom after the wrong number, I discovered a pill in my bed. This is never a good thing. I recognized it as prescription grade anti-histamine, which explained everything.

Anyway one that was sorted, I dreamed that Malcolm Reynolds (my role in the dream) and Viv from American version of Shameless were co-leaders of an American Torchwood branch. This episode involved hunting three entirely different mostly invisible deadly things in one day. It also happened to be Viv's wedding day to Svetlana, as Viv was, I guess doing this behind everyone else's back from shameless as really, would you tell them? So Viv left after the first two and the team was hunting a what turned out to Predator without her, only we ended up accidentally crashing the Reception party at the bar as we caught the Predator in the bathroom of the Alibi, which was a good thing, as it turned out not to be the real Viv, but a shapeshifter from earlier in the day....

Possibly geekiest crossover dream ever.

* No, news casters, sucking your own cock is not impossible. There is plenty of video evidence, including in the opening montage of the movie "Short Bus," which I recommend for other reasons, including trans people playing trans people, non-binary inclusion, positive depiction of poly, and a really good plot. Also, I knew a guy who could do it, and those of you who are intimately knowledgeable about my sexual history are all likely picturing the same guy and you are wrong. No, not him either. It was a group sex thing.
