2020 Election Candidate Information - Stay Informed!

2020.09.05 16:45 LobbyLoiterer 2020 Election Candidate Information - Stay Informed!

Mail-in ballots will soon be sent to every registered voter in Nevada, so I thought I'd make this post to help keep Washoe County voters informed on their choices. As with every election, it is important for us to decide how we want to move our country and our state forward. And with mail-in ballots, it's even easier to take our time and make a clear decision using all the resources at our disposal before casting our votes. Remember that your vote matters, and that you have the opportunity to choose who represents you on the political stage.
All candidates are listed in alphabetical order.
Key: (D) = Democratic Party (IA) = Independent-American Party (L) = Libertarian Party (R) = Republican Party (I) = Independent candidate (NP) = Non-Partisan candidate

I've removed the questions and tried to simplify them as best and as fairly as I can. The actual wording on the ballot is always intentionally in confusing "legalese". Also note that, for whatever reason, there is no Question 5 on the ballot.
Voting "YES" would amend the Nevada Constitution to remove the Board of Regents and giving their power over state universities to the state legislature. The question specifically includes administration over federal land grant proceeds.
Voting "NO" would leave things the way they are.
Voting "YES" would amend the Nevada Constitution to repeal 2002's Question 2 which defined marriage as being between a man and a woman, and replace it with recognition of marriage between any two people, regardless of gender. It would also acknowledge that religious organizations and clergypersons would have the right to refuse to solemnize a marriage.
Voting "NO" would leave things the way they are.
Voting "YES" would amend the Nevada Constitution to require the State Board of Pardons Commissioners to meet four times a year, authorize any member of the board to submit matters for consideration, and allow the board to grant a pardon without governor consent.
Voting "NO" would leave things the way they are. There is no current number of meetings required of the board, and currently the majority voting in favor of pardon must include the governor in order for the pardon to be granted.
Voting "YES" would amend the Nevada Constitution to include a list of rights guaranteed to voters: Everyone gets a legible ballot; access to help with voting procedures; safe voting without intimidation or threats; lines will remain open if there are people in them when they close; replacement ballots; voting assistance; sample ballots; instructions on how to use voting equipment; equal access to voting; a uniform statewide vote counting system; and a promise to resolve complaints efficiently.
Voting "NO" would leave things the way they are.
Voting "YES" would amend the Nevada Constitution to require energy companies to increase the total renewable energy in the state to 50% by 2030 through gradual increases in renewable output.
Voting "NO" would leave things the way they are.
I've tried to provide as much information as possible. All the information here and more can be found on Ballotpedia as well as the Nevada Secretary of State's site. If you have any questions, ask in the comments and I or someone else will try to help you.
Let me know if I'm missing anything, if any of the elections I included are not actually relevant to Washoe County, and if you think there's anything else important I should add. Also let me know if there's any spelling errors, party affiliation mistakes or omissions, and whether the question explanations are understandable. I want to keep this up to date and as informative as possible up to the election.
And don't forget to vote and stay safe! It's never been easier or more important to let your voice be heard!

2020.08.13 21:13 AlphaTwitch [REQUEST] [STEAM] Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Hey guys! I've tried posting here once before but to no avail, so today I decided to try again! I'm sure you've heard of/seen streamers like xQc play the game and in my opinion it looks super fun! Fall Guys is a massively multiplayer party game with up to 60 players online in a free-for-all struggle through round after round of escalating chaos until one victor remain.
I grew up watching Wipeout (Wipeout is an American television game show that featured contestants competing in (what was billed as) the "World's Largest" obstacle course. Wipeout was hosted and commentated by John Henson and John Anderson, while Jill Wagner acted as the "on-location" reporter. The show aired on ABC from June 24, 2008 to September 7, 2014. The interim reporter for one season was Vanessa Lachey. The creators and executive producers are Matt Kunitz and Scott Larsen. Distribution of the show was handled by Endemol Shine. The show was taped at Sable Ranch in Canyon Country, Santa Clarita, California, north of Los Angeles. In April 2020, it was announced that Wipeout would be returning on TBS, date and other salient details unspecified but iconic obstacle Big Balls would be included.) and the likes of Takeshis castle (Takeshis Castle is a Japanese game show that aired between 1986 and 1990, on the Tokyo Broadcasting System. It features the Japanese comedian Takeshi Kitano as a Count who owns a castle and sets up difficult challenges for players to get to him. The show has become a cult television hit around the world.), and the game really made me reminisce. I'm not gonna bullshit you with a "oh all my friends have it" sob story (none of my friends really play video games, if I get it and someone wants to play just shoot me a pm!), just gonna be straight up and say it looks like a really fun game but I can't financially commit at the moment.
Anyways, if there's a person in a giftfull(?) mood seeing this post, hi!
Steam page: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1097150/Fall_Guys_Ultimate_Knockout/
Steam ID: https://steamcommunity.com/id/Cairozh/ (I don't use steam/play any steam games a lot so that's why it may look a bit bare.
(Yes I padded the post so that I could actually submit it.)

2020.07.09 03:56 throwsuiciaway [FF] My best friend's boyfriend pissed me off, so I [18F] fucked his mom [late 40s F]

The summer after graduating high school, I was in a pissy mood. Yes, the whole summer. I was terrified about going to college hours away from my family and sad to be leaving my friends, especially my best friend, Jillian. Throughout high school, Jillian and I had a covert romantic and sexual relationship. We saw each other intermittently from our first year of high school (age 14) until we left for college (age 18), pausing only when we had boyfriends. And occasionally unpausing it during those times. We somehow simultaneously thought of each other as our soulmate and also a relationship that didn't "count" as cheating because we were both women. It's not something I'm proud of, but it's something I've since learned is actually fairly common amongst closeted teenagers.
Our last semester of high school, Jillian started dating a boy in our year named Tom. At first, I didn't dislike him any more than I disliked her other boyfriends — it was more a general jealousy that she could date them in public instead of an actual dislike of them as individuals. But then, against my wishes, she told Tom about us one night shortly before graduation. I was fucking pissed. I wasn't ready to be "out," and I wasn't even sure what my sexuality was, so this felt like both an invasion of my privacy and a lot of pressure to suddenly define myself. Jillian apologized profusely when she saw how upset I was, and I did forgive her fairly quickly considering my ability to hold a grudge, but the damage was done.
Tom became insufferable. Every time the three of us were in a room together, he would "jokingly" ask us for a threesome as the literal embodiment of what is now known as the "haha jk... unless" meme. Any time he and I were left alone, he would goad me. He'd grab his crotch over his pants, tell me how big his dick was, or say that he could make Jillian cum harder than I ever could because I was just a "dyke with small hands and no cock." I told Jillian about these things, but she kept laughing it off, saying he was just playing around.
To protect myself from getting slapped with a murder conviction, I avoided him as much as possible, which wasn't easy considering he was always fucking there: at beach week, at Jillian and my joint graduation party, at Jillian's side whenever we had plans to hang out. He was determined to prevent us from being alone. I empathized with his concerns because it was true that Jillian had cheated on boyfriends with me in the past, but I was baffled by this dynamic. Why the fuck would you date somebody who you worried would cheat on you the second you left them alone? And why the fuck would you date somebody who didn't trust you enough to leave you alone for more than a second? Jillian refused to set boundaries, saying she didn't want to be put in the middle of it. Tom then started insisting on hosting all our friend group hangouts that entire summer, forcing me to be around him if I ever wanted to see my other friends as well.
To be fair, his house was awesome. His mom had gotten an incredible settlement when his dad violated their prenup and ran off with some Pilates instructor, and she poured a lot of the money into renovating the house. The scandal was the talk of the town when it first happened, and I remember my parents going out of their way to bring her dinners and support her as a newly single mom. She ended up not needing anybody's help. She lost at least 40 pounds, got some work done on her face, and bought herself a fancy car and a whole new wardrobe.
I was honestly floored by how well she handled the divorce in the face of vicious public speculation. She went from being a typical, dumpy small town mom to a hot divorcée in the span of a couple months, and, if the rumors were true, she was taking advantage of her newfound singlehood by constantly going out on dates in town, zipping around in her fancy car with a new guy every time. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't taken a peek at her when we were all hanging out by their pool, but I still wasn't quite sure if I was interested in sleeping with women overall or just Jillian. Either way, she was undeniably attractive.
One hot July afternoon, Tom's mom was inside while the whole friend group lazed around by the pool. Tom was showing off on the diving board for Jillian while I was reapplying sunscreen and struggling to reach my back. "Jill, could you help me out please?" I asked, genuinely innocently.
She took her eyes off Tom and squirted some sunscreen in her hands, rubbing it into my shoulders. When Tom resurfaced, he looked over for Jillian's approval and saw her hands on me. He immediately shot out of the pool and stomped over to us, grabbing the sunscreen out of Jillian's hands and shoving his body between us. "I've got it, Jillian, you don't have to do this," he hissed.
Nevermind the fact that I had no interest in letting him touch me. He forcefully rubbed sunscreen onto my shoulders and back, ignoring me when I asked him to soften the pressure. Jillian left to jump in the pool, throwing her hands up in frustration. Coward. I grit my teeth and bit my tongue, determined not to give him the satisfaction of making a scene in front of our friends. It was the one thing he knew he had over me; Jillian and I weren't out to the friend group, and he knew that as long as he didn't cross a line, I would never tell him off in public out of fear that he would out me. That might seem silly from today's perspective, but this was a decade ago — before same-sex marriage was legalized, before President Obama had even publicly changed his opinion. Especially in a small town, being outwardly queer was something that at best got you ostracized and at worst got you disowned or beaten.
Our friends didn't seem to notice anything was wrong. They were too busy playing chicken in the pool or flirting amongst themselves or reading trashy magazines. Tom took advantage of their distraction to start whispering to me as he forcefully rubbed in sunscreen. "Nice try, Lily," he muttered under his breath, "but you're gonna have to do better than that."
"What the fuck is your problem, dude?" I whispered, "Jillian isn't going to cheat on you. We've both made that very clear."
He scoffed. "Obviously. Why would she go for you when she could have my thick cock?"
I made a noise of disgust, but he kept talking. "The offer still stands for you to join us, though," he murmured, brushing my hair over one shoulder seemingly to apply sunscreen but really just to breathe in my ear, "I'd love for you two to play in front of me."
One of his hands slid over my shoulder to rub sunscreen on my sternum. I tried to shrug him off, but he held me firm. "Please let go of me," I whispered, struggling to keep my voice even.
Tom's hand brushed against the line of my bikini top. "You'll like it better when a man is involved. I'll remind you how much you need cock."
One of his fingertips slid half an inch under my top. That was it. I elbowed him hard in the throat and immediately shot up, rearranging my face to one of playful chagrin and raising my voice for everyone to hear. "Oh my god, Tom, I'm SO SORRY!" I giggled, "I'm so ticklish, it was just an automatic reaction! That's sooooo embarrassing. I'll go get you some ice."
I flounced towards the house as he struggled to breathe, his hand grasping at his throat. Jillian watched me go, concern etched onto her face as she got out of the pool to check on Tom. Fuck her. Fuck that. I was fucking done with Tom's insecurity and constant power plays, even if I had to come out publicly just so he wouldn't have anything on me. I slammed the sliding glass door shut harder than necessary and stormed upstairs to the shower. I needed to wash off the feeling of his hands. As I reached the second floor landing, I nearly ran into Tom's mom. "Oh! Hi Lily!" she said, her kind eyes crinkling as she smiled, "Are you having a nice time?"
How the fuck could somebody as awful as Tom be half made up of her DNA? "Hey, Mrs. S," I said in a peppy tone, overcompensating to hide my anger, "I was just coming up to wash my sunscreen off. I was getting itchy."
"Please, Lily, call me Pam. I'm also not even 'Mrs. Scott' anymore," she winked.
"Right, shoot, sorry, Pam," I said, smiling softly.
"Tom's bathroom is free, but I don't think it's clean enough for guests. Would you like to use the shower in the master bath?"
"That would be amazing, thank you so much."
"There are towels in the cabinet. Please help yourself to any of the soaps and supplies!"
"Thank you — that's really nice of you."
She rubbed my arm gently. Goosebumps erupted in the wake of her touch, and I suddenly felt very exposed in my bikini. "You know I've always been fond of you, Lily. I always hoped you and Tom would get together, not that Jillian isn't a sweet girl, of course."
I couldn't stop myself from laughing, and her look of confusion made me laugh harder. Shit. I needed an excuse. "Tom isn't my type," I explained weakly, trying to rearrange my face into something more casual and polite than abject disgust.
Her eyes widened. Fuck. She definitely thought I was a lesbian. She quickly recovered, smiling at me. "Then I hope you find someone who is," she said genuinely, rubbing my arm again, "You seem like somebody who has a lot of love to give."
She squeezed my hand and then walked down the stairs, leaving behind the scent of lavender and chlorine. That definitely could have gone better. Well, at least she wasn't one of the more gossipy moms, having been the recipient of some nasty rumors after her divorce and proven herself to be above it all. Besides, Tom was probably already posting a Facebook status about my sexuality as revenge for the elbow to the throat. Comparatively, his mom's suspicions were barely an issue.
I took my time in the shower, scrubbing at my skin with a loofah until it was rubbed raw. I then grabbed a fresh towel from the cabinet and wrapped it around myself, standing in front of the mirror and surveying Pam's fancy skin creams. A light knock on the door startled me. "Lily? You find everything ok?" Pam called through the door.
I opened it and smiled at her. "Just snooping through your fancy skincare options! Which do you recommend for minor sunburns? My face looks a little red."
She smiled back and stepped around me into the bathroom, picking up and putting down bottles as she looked at the labels. I watched her intently. Fuck, she was beautiful. Her face was the epitome of quiet dignity and kindness, like Lindsay Duncan or Helen Mirren. I found myself raking my eyes down her body. "This one is great for sun damage," she told me, squeezing some of the cream onto her finger and dabbing it across my cheeks.
She paused for a moment and smiled at me. "You have such beautiful skin," she said softly, "I miss having that youthful complexion."
"Are you kidding?" I laughed, "I would kill to look like you now, let alone when I'm a mom to a teenager."
"That's sweet of you to say."
"I mean it, Pam. You are absolutely gorgeous."
She waved off the compliment. "It's nothing other than the magic of a good dermatologist and flattering clothing. You should see how much loose skin I have from losing weight."
"I find it hard to believe that any inch of you isn't beautiful."
I knew I was crossing a line with my shameless flirting, but I couldn't bring myself to give a shit. She already suspected that I was attracted to women; if she was uncomfortable with it, then she wouldn't have come into the bathroom after she saw I was half naked. She flushed, looking away from my intense gaze and screwing the cap back on the cream. "All done. How does that feel?"
"It feels great," I said, still looking at her, "but I'm afraid I forgot my clothes downstairs."
She noticeably swallowed. Interesting. Her eyes flickered down to where my cleavage peeked out over the towel. "You're more than welcome to raid my closet," she offered, "I'm sure I have some options that are close enough to your size."
"Thank you so much, Pam," I murmured, running my hand down her arm and squeezing her hand, "Would you mind please pointing them out to me?"
She led me into the master bedroom and pulled a couple options out of her walk-in closet, hanging them over the edge of a nearby armchair. I intentionally stood a little too close to be casual, letting the slit in the towel wrap reveal most of my upper thigh. Might as well go for broke. "I'll leave you to get changed," Pam said softly, not meeting my eyes and heading towards the door.
"You don't have to go," I murmured the second her hand touched the doorknob.
It was a hail Mary. Sure, I could have just slept with one of my guy friends again, but I was missing Jillian, missing the exquisite flavors and soft moaning of a woman coming apart against my tongue. It had been over two months since I had last tasted Jillian, the longest we had ever gone without sleeping together since we were 14. I thought Pam was going to laugh me off or give an excuse, but instead she closed the door with a soft click and locked it, turning towards me slowly and bringing her eyes up to meet mine. I smiled at her, holding her gaze and untying my towel. It fell to the ground. Her eyes raked up and down my naked form, her lips parting slightly. I walked towards her slowly, pulling my wet hair over one of my shoulders. Her hand gently stroked my hair once when I reached her, her eyes wandering over my eyes, my smile, my tits. I took one of her hands and gently guided her over to her bed. "I haven't done this since college," she murmured.
"I'm sure things haven't changed too much since then," I teased, "it's like riding a bicycle."
She let go of my hand as I sank down onto the bed, not meeting my eyes and playing with the hem of her pool sarong. "I also haven't been with anybody since my husband left."
My eyebrows shot up in surprise. "I thought you've been going on all these dates!"
"I have, but I didn't let them go anywhere."
I took both her hands in mine. "I would be honored to be the first to welcome you back."
She laughed and squeezed my hands. We stared at each other for a moment, smiling softly. "Are we really doing this?" she asked, her cheeks flushed.
I leaned in until my lips were almost on hers. "Yeah, Pam, we're doing this."
She closed the gap, her soft lips pressing gently against mine. I let her take the lead, but I couldn't resist dropping her hands to slide my fingers slowly down her back until they were cupping her ass. She leaned into the kiss, pushing me down until I was laying flat against the bed. Her hands cupped my tits, teasing my nipples with her thumb. I quietly moaned into her mouth.
Emboldened, she kissed down my neck until one and then the other nipple was in her mouth. She flicked her tongue forcefully against each one in turn, eliciting another series of moans. I spread my legs so she could settle between them. Painfully slowly, she then kissed and licked her way down my stomach until she was finally at my pussy. She looked up at me. I nodded. She devoured me with her mouth, her enthusiasm taking my breath away. Jillian was the only woman I had been with at that point, and I was used to her small, gentle movements. Pam, on the other hand, was wild.
Her tongue lapped at my clit aggressively, and she unhesitatingly shoved two fingers deep inside of me, immediately finding my g-spot and punishingly rubbing it. I moaned loudly and tangled a hand in her hair. "Oh oh oh!" I shrieked, "Don't stop! Oh my god don't stop!"
She smiled against my pussy and continued her relentless licking, her fingers fucking me roughly. The slick, sloppy sounds of her mouth on my clit and her fingers pulsing in my cunt filled the air, the obvious lewdness of the noises making me blush. I pinched one of my nipples and ground my pussy against her face. "Pam," I groaned, "I'm getting close."
Pam hitched both my legs over her shoulders and increased the pressure, her whole mouth and tongue rubbing against my clit and a third finger joining the pounding in my cunt. In less than a minute, I was there. I couldn't stop myself from screaming as I came, my hand holding her face in place and my body shaking violently against the bed. She worked me through my peak, only slowing down when my shrieks returned to quiet moans. She collapsed next to me on the bed, both of us panting. "Are you sure you haven't been practicing daily?" I teased, "Because holy shit."
She laughed and wiped the back of her hand across her mouth. "It was definitely better than riding a bicycle."
I turned on my side and propped myself up on my elbow, my hand brushing her hair away from her face as I forced her to meet my gaze. "Is that how you like it?" I murmured, "Rough and sloppy pussy eating?"
Her eyes searched mine, and she bit her lower lip. "Actually, I prefer it soft and gentle. At least at first. My husband liked it rough, so I guess I was just used to giving with aggression."
"I can do that," I murmured, leaning down to kiss her.
My tongue moved against hers slowly, and I gently unwrapped her pool sarong. Both her hands tangled in my hair. I rubbed her pussy softly, teasingly over her swimsuit, slipping my middle finger between her lips. She moaned into my mouth, her hips lifting to increase the pressure. I pulled my hand back and ended the kiss. "Don't be greedy," I teased, and then I bit down gently on her lower lip.
We centered ourselves on the bed. I slid my body over hers until I was straddling her, my bare pussy hovering over her hips. I untied the top of her bathing suit. Pam lifted a hand to stop me. I paused. Her eyes danced over my face nervously as she spoke, "I meant what I said earlier. I don't have a young woman's body. I've carried a baby, and I've gained and lost a lot of weight over the years."
I smiled softly and kissed her gently, gliding my tongue against her lower lip. After a moment, I pulled back, looking her in the eye. "I'm ready when you are."
She helped me remove her one-piece bathing suit. I let it fall to the ground, devouring her with my eyes. "Holy shit, Pam," I murmured, climbing back over her to straddle her thighs and rubbing my hands up her body, "You are so fucking sexy."
Yes, she had stretch marks, and yes, she had loose skin. And her body was incredible: every inch a testament to the full life she had lived and all the experiences she had, including two unexpected little music note tattoos over her hipbone. I leaned over and kissed her again deeply, exploring her mouth with my tongue as I gently trailed my fingers back down her body until they were between us, teasing her pussy with feather-light touches. I again slipped my middle finger between the lips of her pussy, lightly circling her clit. "I'm going to take this slow," I whispered in her ear, "because I want you to be wetter than you ever were with your husband by the time I finally taste you."
She panted roughly, her whole body flushed as she stared at me, her eyes darkening. She nodded, her mouth open slightly. I kissed her slowly, my mouth moving against hers as I massaged her tongue with mine. Our kisses got sloppier, lazier, but I kept my finger's gentle circling of her clit consistent. Eventually, I detached my lips from hers and began kissing up her jaw, placing firm kisses along her skin until I reached her neck. I slid my finger down to tease at the entrance to her pussy. "We're getting there," I murmured in her ear, "but I want you to be fucking dripping."
She moaned, and I moved my finger back up to her clit. Slowly, I kissed down her neck, sucking lightly on her skin, and I kissed along every inch of her chest before I finally touched her breasts. Cupping one of them with the hand not teasing her clit, I lowered my mouth to take her nipple into my mouth. I flicked my tongue against it once and then sucked hard. Pam moaned, her hips bucking up against my finger. I sat down on her thighs to prevent her from moving too much. With a final hard suck, I released her nipple from my mouth, swirling my tongue around it once while maintaining eye contact with her.
Moving to capture her other nipple with my mouth, I dipped my finger again to tease at her entrance. I sucked her nipple as I finally pushed my finger inside, curling it to press against her g-spot. I was surprised by how tight she was; I wasn't sure if I could even fit more than two fingers inside her. She moaned loudly. I smiled to myself and removed my finger. Slowly kissing down her body, making sure to give every inch of her skin attention, I pressed against her clit with my thumb and started rubbing it roughly. Her moan transitioned into loud, heavy breaths. She propped herself up on her elbows to watch my movements.
As quickly as I started, I stopped rubbing her clit. Her brow furrowed, her heavy breaths visibly making her chest rise and fall. "Patience," I whispered, smirking at her.
I pulled her legs over my shoulders and kissed up her inner thigh, nipped at her labia, swiped my tongue over her clit once, and then kissed down her other thigh. She brushed my hair back from my face, watching me intently. Slowly, punishingly, I buried my face in her pussy and pushed my tongue past her entrance. She moaned loudly, laying back against the bed. She tasted incredible. Lavender, pussy, a hint of chlorine from the pool, and something else unique to her. I swirled my tongue inside her, moaning, my eyes closed. Fuck. I would have lived off the taste of her cunt if I could.
Reluctantly, I tore myself away and sucked her clit into my mouth, gently rolling my tongue against it. At the same time, I brought my pointer finger to tease her entrance, dipping inside once to the knuckle and then bringing it back out again to circle the rim. "More," she whispered, her hands clutching at the bedspread.
I kept the pressure on her clit the same, but I pushed my finger back inside her, curling it to gently rub against her g-spot. She moaned, long and low. "More," she whispered again, demandingly.
I increased the pressure on her clit and pushed in a second finger, massaging her gently with my fluid strokes. One of her arms reached up to cover her face while her other hand tangled into my hair, pushing my face down harder against her warm, beautiful pussy. I obliged, sucking on her clit and flicking it rapidly with my tongue as I began fucking her cunt. Her body rose up against my face. "More!" she called out, her moans reverberating in my ears.
Fuck it. I shoved in a third and fourth finger in one movement, devouring her clit and pressing my nose into her mound, shaking my face back and forth to get closer. My fingers punishingly pounded into her pussy. Her moans turns into shrieks, and I felt her cunt clench around my fingers as she started to orgasm. "Oh my god. Oh my god!" she screamed, her hand pressing against me until I could barely tell where my face ended and her pussy began, "I'm cumming! Don't stop!"
I wouldn't have dared. I was having too much fun fucking her warm cunt and lavishing her clit with attention. Her body shook hard against my face, her fingers digging into my scalp and her thighs clenching around my ears. I moaned into her pussy. I kept up my movements, determined to prolong her orgasm as long as possible. Eventually, her loud, deep moans transitioned into softer, shorter sighs, and her body relaxed into the bed, her pussy still occasionally pulsing in waves around my fingers. I slowed my movements and stopped, removing my hand gently and pressing a couple final licks against her clit with a flat tongue.
As soon as I ducked out from between her legs, she curled in on herself on the bed, spasming gently from the aftershocks. I spooned her tightly. Peppering soft kisses over her shoulder, I murmured gentle words of encouragement. Regardless of the strength of her orgasm, her first time having sex (and with a woman no less) after her divorce was bound to result in a confusing mixture of emotions. She lifted an arm so I could slide mine against her stomach, and then she laced her fingers through mine. "Wow," she whispered.
I nuzzled my nose against her neck and then settled down against the bed. "How do you feel?" I asked softly.
"The good kind of strange. I wasn't exactly expecting this."
I laughed. "Understandable."
We cuddled on the bed for a while. The feeling of holding her in my arms and knowing I provided her with a positive reentry into her sex life was incredible. Eventually, she shivered, the heat from my body not enough to warm her bare skin against the air conditioning. She untangled herself from me and sat upright. "Thank you," she said softly, not looking at me.
"It was very genuinely my pleasure."
She laughed and turned around, brushing my hair away from my face. Her brows furrowed slightly. "You're my son's age," she said softly.
"And you're his friend."
"Define 'friend.'"
She laughed. "I know he can be a piece of work, but I don't want to make life more difficult for him. He took the divorce really hard. He hasn't even seen his father since it happened. Could you — could you please not mention this to him?"
I captured her hand and pressed a firm kiss to her palm. "Of course."
Slipping on some of her clothes, grabbing my bikini, and stealing a final, searing kiss, I headed downstairs to rejoin my friends, a small smile on my lips from this new little secret. I still wasn't sure what I wanted to call myself, but I knew I had to make as many women cum as possible the second I got to college. Jillian stopped me right inside the entrance. "Lily! I didn't know where you went. Are you ok? Tom finally told me what happened."
"Yeah. But your boyfriend is the worst. I mean, fuck, Jillian, he is the ACTUAL worst. You deserve better. It is horrifying to me that you let him treat me the way he does, but it is even worse that you let him treat you like you're property."
"I don't—"
"Yes. You do. You let him treat both of us like his personal playthings. And I fucking hate that you gave him leverage over me. I love you, Jill, but that was fucked up."
She was speechless for a second. "I— I don't know what you want me to say, Lily. I've already apologized for that."
"I know you have. And I don't know if I even want anything from you right now. I love you, and I will literally always be here for you, but I'm not going to be with you again until you know more about who you are and what you want."
I kissed her on the cheek and walked outside. Tom looked over at me angrily but didn't say anything, his hand instinctively coming up to rub his throat where I had elbowed him. I smiled pleasantly, laying back on the pool chair and playing on my phone.
Tom left me alone for the rest of the summer. I never told him about the afternoon I spent with his mom, no matter how satisfying it would have been to rub his smug homophobia back in his face. It just wasn't his business. And it wasn't my place to out her as bisexual or flexible or however she identified.
Pam ended up getting remarried after I graduated college — actually to the widower father of one of our other friends, James. I'm not sure if Tom ever felt guilty about his behavior, but I like to think that an example of healthy masculinity in his life taught him how to work through his insecurities rather than try to control women. I occasionally run into Pam around town whenever I visit my hometown, and she is always warm, hugging me tightly without hesitation and asking me hundreds of questions about my life. She told me once about a year after our afternoon together that I helped her feel confident enough to genuinely reenter the dating pool, and I told her that she helped me feel comfortable pursuing real relationships with women. It was still another couple years before I came out to my family, but I still credit her with kickstarting the process.
Jillian thankfully dumped Tom a couple weeks before we left for college. She said it was because she didn't want to do long distance, but I think she was just saving face and feeling embarrassed about finally realizing how poorly he was treating her. I only ended up sleeping with her one more time, but that's a story for another day.

I am posting this because this girl is close to my age and from my local community. My deepest respect to her and her family. I hope that one day her mother will have closure because even now she posts updates to try and find her lost daughter. This year there was a community gathering to try and bring renewed interest to her case. This case has been through two lead investigations and no tips have panned out.
To the people that will just shrug and say something like 'she's dead so let's move on' please understand that for her family and for the community we can't know that for sure. We don't know if she died, if she was sold into slavery, or if she was a runaway that has never looked back. So, please unless you have a good theory or well thought out a comment there is no need for callousness here.
If you have information or theories DO NOT contact this family. If you think you have the information you may contact the local authorities. Please call St. Joseph PD at 816-271-4777 or call the Buchanan County Communication Center at 816-271-4777 or the TIPS Hotline at (816) 238-TIPS.

Ashley Renee Martinez's case is very detailed and has many curious tidbits. This is my write up but I don't own anything. I'm doing a combination of copy and pasting from various news sources and my own writing. Anything that is copy and paste will be in quotes and will have a link to the original source somewhere on this page. I will also be including alleged information, town gossip, and hearsay.
I would like to encourage you to leave creative comments, ideas, and thoughts. Please share this information especially if you are in the Missouri, Washington, or California area. You don't need to share my name and you have full permission to use anything that I've written or put together about Ashley to help. Please just be mindful and kind about how you do so.
This is a curious case and at first, seems very cut and dry. However, upon closer examination of the story and the little evidence we have, it seems to be a bit more complicated. It's possible that the investigation was slowed simply because many viewed Ashley as a rebellious teenager. The family believes that she had left willingly with a man. However, that is speculation.
"Ashley ran away from home once before, in 2001, but she did not leave the state and was only gone for about a day before returning home voluntarily. She was an eighth-grader at Robidoux Middle School at the time of her disappearance." Ashley was reported a runaway in the summer of 2001 and according to a website set up for finding her back in 2005 she had "gone to stay with a friend overnight and when her Mom called to check on her she discovered that she had gotten into a car and left with a 21-year-old man. Her Mom called the police and they said the only way they could look for her is if she reported her as a runaway so her Mom reported her as a runaway in an effort to get Ashley back. 10 hours later Ashley walked to a friend's house of her brothers and he contacted her Mom to come pick her up."

It was July 6th of 2004 around noon. "Tammy Mack dropped her then 15-year-old daughter, Ashley Martinez, off at Krug Pool with her 13-year-old brother. When Ms. Mack returned for her children after a few hours, her son was waiting for her, but Ashley was nowhere to be found."
"After being dropped off that day, Ashley reportedly got into a car with convicted felon Christopher Hart, then 32, who reportedly promised to take her to California."
Christopher allegedly had lived close to Ashley's home. This is town gossip and if that statement is true or not remains unknown.
"He was on parole for second-degree assault and has also been convicted of drug possession, unlawful use of a weapon and resisting arrest."
"Detective Sgt. Jennifer Protzman with the St. Joseph Police Department said authorities have made several attempts to speak with Mr. Hart, who remains incarcerated in the Missouri Department of Corrections on a conviction for second-degree assault. Although he was reportedly the last person seen with Ashley, Ms. Protzman said the case is not considered inactive.“We have attempted to talk to him. He is a person of interest and continues to be,” she said. “We can’t focus solely on one suspect in these kinds of cases, because we don’t want to miss anything.”
Interestingly enough, in the community article of 2018, the article contains a quote that claims the police have not called Hart a suspect in the case.
"Police could not comment on Ashley’s case because it remains open, and the current investigator, Sgt. Jason Strong, wouldn’t say whether Hart was or had ever been considered a suspect in Ashley’s disappearance."
Some accounts say that nobody saw Ashley leave with anyone and some people say that they did see her leave that day with someone. "Tabitha Blohm Kretzer, who was Ashley’s best friend, was at the pool the day Ashley vanished. “I thought she had gone to the convenience store, but she never came back,” Kretzer said. “I still think about her all the time.”
Ashley was reported to have smoked cigarettes, (Menthols) partied and partook of marijuana. It is possible Christopher Hart was a drug dealer. All of this information is hearsay/alleged.
"Ashley’s mother describes her as a beautiful girl who loves to read and has a great sense of humor." this link now has a 404 error
Ashley Martinez was 15 at the time missing from Saint Joseph, MO, and the last known location was the Krug Park Pool. Which still operates today during the summer hours. The layout has changed very little over the years. The pool has a small park next to it and a very large park across the street. Ashley was 5'3, 110 pounds with blue eyes. Ashley had a very slim build. Her hair color is naturally a sandy blond but she did dye it different shades of blonde. The last time she was seen her hair had been styled straight and the length was upper back. Ashley is Caucasian. The birthday is January 24th, 1989. She does have a scar or scars on her left arm/wrist.
Clothing worn that day was blue jean shorts size 1 or junior 11, black top with red cherries size medium, and white Reebok tennis shoes with red accents shoe size 5. Ashley's tongue, naval, and ears were pierced. and she had a ring with two hearts joined together. (We now know this ring was something her mother gave her) A black bikini with red cherries was worn underneath her clothing. Ashley was reported to have a bi-bipolar disorder and is supposed to have left her medications. She may have had an inhaler with her for her mild asthma attacks. I did find information that said that she had an emergency type inhaler but had not needed it in a long time. Ashley's family does have dental records and medical x-rays available. Ashley's teeth were normal. Ashley did not wear hats out of personal preference because they messed up her hair.
Among that information according to her mother, Ashley's favorite color was red. Ashley wanted to be a model and had many talents that she enjoyed such as reading and writing. She hung out with friends, talked on the phone, and had sleepovers. Ashley liked love stories like the Titanic and watched Lifetime movies with her mom. "Most of Ashley's enjoyment was centered around her family, friends, and pets. She has two brothers, an older one and a younger one, who miss her so much. Her friends still often call and check on her and us. They also miss her so much. Her pets miss her so much too, and the love that she gave them was wonderful. Two months prior to her disappearance, Ashley had picked out her very own kitten and named him herself. She chose a long haired gray kitten and named him Coco. He was very small when she disappeared, but now she would be so surprised of how large he is.” Other important personal preferences include favorite restaurants being: Red Lobster and McDonald's. Favorite foods are Crab meat, vegetables (corn, peas, potatoes), tacos, and pizza. Lastly, favorite junk foods are Doritos with cheese dip, mint chocolate chip ice cream, Reese's peanut butter cups.
I have seen some missing person flyers that suggest that she still might be in the local area while others suggest she has left the area. Ashley has some age progression photos listed in various sites as well I would suggest looking at them and sharing. this description is pieced together from several missing persons pages and flyers all links below but is too enormous to list for a single quote link.
"Police have received numerous tips on Ashley's whereabouts, largely from the Kansas City and Olympia areas, Voltmer said." "I don't know if that's because they are valid or because it's where the mass mailings are and the mass posting of the different posters," (St. Joseph Police Sgt. Jill Voltmer)
"Ashley’s little brother said she’d left the pool of her own free will and gotten into a car with a friend. Ashley’s mother says that friend was 32-year-old, Christopher Matthias Hart." Many news articles make it clear that the family is convinced Ashley's left with Christopher Hart that day. According to a blog site that was shared by Ashley's mother via social media there are few more key pieces of possible information. It was reported that Ashley hung around the pool for a couple of hours before being picked up. Ashley according to friends borrowed a friend's cell phone and called Hart.
"Before Hart supposedly left on July 6, he also stopped by an acquaintance's house, saying he had his car packed, and that he was going to pick up Ashley. It was also confirmed that Christopher Hart and Ashley had been "seeing" each other."
The reported car that she had left in is fairly unique as far as age and type the color is supposed to be grey. "Christopher Hart. He picked her up near the pool in his dad’s gray 1995 Pontiac Bonneville with Missouri license plate, 377MPY." and it may have looked like This I have found a VIN number for the car. Unforantly, there has been no history attached to the number. 1G2HX52K2S4292423 Also important to note that a maroon car was seen that day as well in relation to Ashley Martinez. See a short facebook conversation about a maroon car.
However, even after Christopher Hart was arrested this car has been nowhere to be found. I feel like finding this car could really be a big lead in this case.
"In September 2004, Hart was arrested in Olympia, Washington, and is awaiting extradition back to Missouri. Hart exhibited bizarre and unorthodox behavior while in jail. He has been sent to Western State Hospital for a mental evaluation, prior to his arraignment in court. Since his arrest, he has been uncooperative about Ashley’s whereabouts or the location of the car." *link to https://www.ncmissingpersons.org/missing-persons/missing-other-states/missouriashley-martinez-150x150/ has an error at the moment. Hart was being extradited back to Missouri for arrest warrants out of Jackson County, Missouri. Originally the purse snatching happened on July 7th but he used an alias and didn't show up in court. On September 7th, 2004 he was arrested again for violating parole on a Missouri charge of second-degree assault. He also has been convicted of unlawful use of a weapon, resisting arrest and property damage
"Police have no solid leads at the moment, she said. Voltmer tried to interview Hart at the Jackson County Jail about six weeks ago, but she said he would not talk about Ashley. Hart is currently confined to a state mental hospital, a jail spokeswoman said Tuesday."
Though it was thought he had convinced her to go to California it is important to note that he was arrested in Washington. (Olympia WA specifically and it is about a 27-hour drive from Saint Joseph. He was arrested there 11 days after her disappearance.) Allegedly purse snatching on the street corners and living with a cousin.
"Eleven days after Ashley's disappearance, Hart was arrested in Olympia, Washington for purse-snatching. He gave the Washington officials a false name and as a result, they did not know he was wanted in Missouri, so he was released.
"On September 7, two months after Ashley's disappearance, Hart was arrested again after Washington police discovered his true identity and the charges against him in Missouri. He had been staying with a cousin in the Olympia area. Washington investigators found no sign of Ashley, or the stolen gray 1995 Pontiac Bonneville with Missouri license plates numbered 377MPY, which she and Hart had allegedly been traveling in. Hart's cousin said he had not seen Ashley or ever heard Hart mention her. Hart has refused to divulge any information whatsoever on Ashley's whereabouts. He began acting bizarrely while in jail and was sent to the state mental hospital for a psychiatric evaluation."
In 2017 they thought they had a break in the case when a witness comes forward. It's important to note however the witness Julie Wahgren is allegedly the cousin of Christopher Hart and Miss Wahren is not highly regarded in the community. She has allegedly been involved with other cases where she may have lied. She's also been reported a local drug addict. However, all of the is ALLEGED and this info is not meant to harm or defame her in any way but to bring up all the possibilities of this case into question. See a few facebook comments from locals about her character.
“I’d heard of what had happened to Ashley and I knew a lot about what was going on. ... it was my cousin she went with,” Wahlgren said. Wahlgren said she actually saw Hart and Ashley together on at least two occasions shortly before the teenager vanished.
“I remember going over to Chris’ house. He told me he met a girl. She was there, and he told me he’d met her at Krug Pool," Wahlgren recounted. "The next day, a couple days later maybe, I went back over there and she was there and they were talking about going to Oregon,” Wahlgren said she agreed to go with them, but then backed out at the last minute.
“The day we were supposed to go, he came to the house and I changed my mind," Wahlgren said. "I had a bad feeling. Something in my gut told me I shouldn’t go and I just didn’t want to do that. I just didn’t want to go."
"After telling Hart she no longer wanted to go on the trip to Oregon, she said Hart left her house and headed to Krug Pool to pick up Ashley. “I know because I was there," she said. "I know that she was going with Chris. I know that it was planned. We were all at the house talking about it, and I know he went because he stopped by the house to get me and I changed my mind.”
This prompted a full-scale investigation but not much news was released to the public or even to Ashley's mother. The police seemed to have looked for a body in a certain area but the conclusions came up cold.
"St. Joseph police are conducting an operation in the North End related to the disappearance of a teenager 13 years ago. Police activities in the area of Huntoon Road and West Highland Avenue — just east of Interstate 229 — are connected to the ongoing missing person’s investigation of Ashley Martinez. The 15-year-old girl was last seen at Krug Pool on June 6, 2004."
“They don’t tell me everything so I don’t get my hopes real high and I understand that,” Mack said.
The conclusion of the search had brought up no new details on the case. "The operation originally began in the area of Huntoon Road and West Highland Avenue and later moved to several acres of private land. Capt. Jeff Wilson with the St. Joseph Police Department said the operation was based on historical information related to the case."
"Investigators with the assistance of search experts from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children conducted a ground search of several properties utilizing specialized equipment and cadaver dogs,” Wilson said. “The search was of value to investigators, but at this time the case remains open with investigators continuing to conduct follow up related to the investigation.”
This is a google maps view of the area. Please note that the locals call the pool the Krug Park Pool but it is in fact called Northwest Complex on the maps. Across the street from the pool is a park called Krug Park and it's the largest best-kept park in the area. I have also included some street views of the pool and street which has had very little changes. I've included a map street view from 2008 which is as far back as google maps go for this spot. I have also included a google maps view of the area they searched with cadaver dogs as well as a map that shows the correlation from the pool to the body search areas. I am unable to conclude who's private property was searched so I can't include this.
As suggested by TheThinkyThing I've done some deep diving into Christopher Hart.
Christopher Mathias Hart is also known as Chris Hart, Christopher M. Hart, and Raymond Michael Price. Please note that he often spelled his name in different ways and in particular his middle name Mathias is either just M or often misspelled. Date of birth 12/20/1971
Possible Inmate Doc I cannot confirm with 100% certainty that his info is correct. Please do not harass or abuse this information. We do not know if he was even involved we do not know if the addresses he lists are correct or who may live there now. This inmate doc seems very likely to be a younger version of himself and does list his alleged address in Saint Joseph, Mo. See below for a more updated photo of him. I have also found that the police have kept a current outstanding warrant on him. This is a google map view of his POSSIBLE OLD address. 2013 views AGAIN this is not his current address. Obviously, other people live there now. DO NOT HARASS. If you do anything that's your own issues and nobody on this site is responsible for your stupid. These pictures and info are for context.
Current outstanding warrant issued for a Christopher Mathias Hart in Saint Joseph MO Do a name search in the outstanding warrants bar to get the following info.
Hart, Christopher Matthias Warrant Number: 98CR268 Charges: Worthless Check Bond: Date: 19980617 Age: 46, Sex: M, Race: W
Hart VS State Listed as a Christopher M Hart V STATE of Missouri, Respondent. This court document outlines his priors as well as his currents leading up to Ashley's disappearance and afterward. I'm not entirely sure what I am reading here so maybe someone a little smarter can pick out the information that might be relevant to us.
Christopher Hart is on the Offender list with a photo listed. This is the correct Hard and probably the most update photo we have of him.
Currently assigned address according to that website: Northeast Correctional Center 13698 Airport Road, Bowling Green, MO 63334
This is the link to the news story outlining Christopher Hart's arrest with vehicle tampering.
7/2/2020 Update; a wonderful Reddit user messaged me and informed me of activity indicating Christopher's release from prison and hospital. The police arrested him on June 28th, 2020 on a state charge of unlawful use of a weapon. The listed his address as 2634 Olive St on the local inmate inquiry there is an updated photo. The arrest info was found in the local newspaper and the other is a searchable website. Interesting to note that he has been out free until this arrest.
Notes and thoughtful Questions Section.
What happened to the unique car? It is rumored to have been registered in Christopher Hart's father's name.
What evidence for a connection to Hart does Ashley have? What type of connection is it? Drug dealer, lover, both?
Where did Ashley get the heart ring that she was wearing when she went missing? Why does she have it? This question is answered. It was ring given to her by her mother.
What sort of mental health diagnosis did Christopher Hart have? Was there evidence of it before? Would it have an impact on the missing and how?
Where did Ashley use to live in relation to Hart? It's rumored he lived close to her.
What type of drugs did Hart allegedly sell? Where did he get them?
Where are the biggest trafficking lines for humans in Missouri, Washington, and California and maybe along the way?
Did anyone see or have evidence of them traveling to Washington or California where Hart was found later?
Did Hart have a history of having young lovers?
Did people have to sign in to the pool that day and does the pool still have records?
Local rumor on the whereabouts of the car is that it could be in the Missouri River. There is a boat ramp access that isn't far from Krug park.

2020.06.26 10:29 aqua_zesty_man [Blade Runner] When Roy Batty says, "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate," he is talking about aliens.

The premise here is he's having traveled beyond where humans have ever been up to that time, possibly on a Tyrell ship, or maybe as a prisoner of an alien species who then escaped or was let free to return to Earth.
This is somewhat of an update to a fan-theory I have previously posted: https://www.reddit.com/FanTheories/comments/5pbs09/what_fan_theories_made_bad_or_mediocre_movies/dcqu9lg/, but now includes the Blade Runner movies via the above quote and because of other factors which we will outline shortly.
In a nutshell, I posit a Shared 'Grunge Tech' universe in which all of these franchise films or video games are part: Blade Runner 1 & 2; Alien 1 through 4, Prometheus, Alien: Covenant, and associated video games; Predator 1 through 4 and associated video games; AVP 1 & 2 and associated video games; RoboCop 1 through 3 (but not the 2014 remake); and the movies Total Recall (1990), Outland (1981), and Leviathan (1989).
By Grunge Tech, I mean the aesthetic that makes it appear that Apple, Inc dominated the field of computing aesthetics and ergonomics and then got complacent and sloppy, turning everything into a dull, dreary monochrome color scheme, including maintaining 1970s-style computer readouts for the next couple hundred years.
Blade Runner was set in 2019, with a real-world release date of 1982. In that reality, there's flying cars, programmable people, and interplanetary travel. But it seems rather incredible humans gained not only easy interplanetary travel but picked up FTL early enough to be able to have wars being fought for or against an interstellar empire in just thirty-seven years.
When Roy Batty says "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe," he's not just addressing Deckard or Gaff, but all humans. I think he has had contact with aliens who own those attack ships or know who does. He's been beyond the human sphere.
This makes more sense if we look at the easter egg mentioned in the article "25 Movie Details That Even Die Hard Fans Confessed To Miss" (www.thepopple.com/famous-movie-details-you-probably-missed-69119):
"A lot of you might have noticed that computer interface used in *Alien (1979), the same interface is used in Blade Runner (1982). Because of this many fans believe that both the stories take place in the same universe. // When director Ridley Scott created Alien Covenant in 2017, he kept the trend alive."*
Then there's videos like this one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hqaqQ4Mb38) which detail various similarities in Ridley Scott's filmmaking with the Blade Runner and Alien franchises. If they belong in the same universe, that's well and good, but Xenomorphs don't have a spacefaring civilization. They more or less get spread the universe by other species to be studied (humans), used as weapons (humans), or used as prey (Predators).
Which brings us to the Aliens vs. Predator spinoffs. If the Aliens movies are part of this universe, then so are the AVP movies and the video games that assume the shared universe, the Aliens: Colonial Marines video game, and the four Predator movies. Those movies allow for lots of things that need to be accounted for:
Now Replicants are programmed meta-humans, basically an engineered subspecies of human as a permanent underclass held in perpetual corporate bondage. Human programming seems like an even stranger development to have occurred in as few as three decades. But if you'll allow the indulgence, if we add the RoboCop movies and Total Recall to the shared universe:
All these movies present a 'grunge tech' look (albeit limited by 1970s and 1980s-era set dressing) which, combined with routine mega-corporate malfeasance and the treatment of employees and underlings more as slaves and disposable assets rather than real people with rights, presents a fairly coherent dystopia where the strong control the weak (whether that's Predators vs. Xenomorphs, or humans vs. Replicants and Synthetics, or corporations vs. colonists).
There are several other links we could make between the source materials of this shared universe:
"In developing his character [David for Prometheus], Fassbender avoided watching the android characters of Alien (1979) and Aliens (1986), and instead studied the replicants in Scott's 1982 science fiction film Blade Runner, with a focus on Sean Young's character Rachael, whose "vacancy" and longing for a soul interested him." (Wikipedia: Sciretta, Peter (June 8, 2012). "Interview: Michael Fassbender Talks 'Prometheus'". /Film. Archived from the original on June 16, 2012. Retrieved June 9, 2012.) --from one of the wikis.
This one isn't really a crossover item, but I wanted to include it anyway: Royce (Adrien Brody, Predator 3) and Ramirez (Richard Chaves, Predator 1) have such an uncanny resemblance to each other that I had to make sure they were not the same actor. These two characters might be related too. Suppose the Predators had collected Ramirez’s genetic signature, happened to locate another military member of his family that was a partial match on their prey database, and that’s why they picked Royce?
Lastly, the way the human body reacts to negligible atmospheric pressure in this universe is slightly off from real life. When the human body is exposed to low air pressure or hard vacuum, it bloats like crazy and eventually explodes. This happens in both Total Recall and Outland. This is really the fault of bad understanding on the writers' part of how the human body behaves in a hard vacuum, but since the same notable mistake happens twice, I'm including it here.
EDITED TO ADD: I did some reorganization of the many, many links between the different films and video games that make up this shared universe, to bring a little order to what began as a rather disorderly exposition.

What is abuse?
"If people can't control their own emotions then they have to start trying to control other people's behaviour." - Robin Skynner; John Cleese
"When a toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you..." - Jill Blakeway
"How to not abuse someone. 'Don't hit them' would be mentioned but wouldn't be the focus. The focus would be on 'don't try to control them.'" - Holly, The Pervocracy
"You don't know how to love people. You only know how to own them. And because people will never act just like you want them to, Mother, you'll always feel betrayed....you'll always feel cheated. But you're the cheat, Mother. You're the one who uses our love for you to try and control us." - Orson Scott Card, Xenocide
"I think too much emphasis is put on love in general. I’ve heard of many atrocities done within families in the name of love but never in the name of respect." - Elvira G. Aletta
Characteristics of abuse and abusive relationships
"The most insidious aspect of living with an angry or abusive partner is not the obvious—nervous reactions to shouting, name-calling, criticism or other demeaning behavior. It's the adaptations you make to try to prevent those episodes." - Steven Stosny
Couples therapy makes things worse for victims of abuse
If violence has been, and especially if it currently still is an issue in your relationship, then Couple Counselling is not recommended. Nor is Mediation if you are going through separation or divorce. Basically the abuse itself has to be dealt with BEFORE any form of joint counselling or mediation can be effective, and in the meantime can, at best, deflect from the actual problem and fudge responsibility issues.

2020.05.29 15:05 Tobi0624 My Favorite Reviews From Allison M. 🌱

From this day on I'm going to start ranking these Letterboxd reviewers, most annoying ones go first, least annoying one go last.
  1. Sally Jane Black
  2. Brat Pitt
  3. Allison M. 🌱
  4. Lucy

Jack and Jill:
3 Stars
Notes from 12/31/13:It made me laugh so much.
3/2/19:You guys, this is exciting. This movie has been underrated for years and now it's finally being appreciated. It's possible that film history is being revised as we are speaking. Check out the response to this clip for proof:twitter.com/AlliCinema/status/1101882822598381568

Imagine That (2009):
1 and a half stars
Very strange. The daughter is about 6 years-old and the writer acted like the girl was a toddler: she had blanket issues and her dad (Eddie Murphy) turns on Blue's Clues to calm her down. That is just scratching the surface with the issues. Will try to forget this film exists.
Vegan alert:-Venison-Pancakes have eggs and butter
They Shall Not Grow Old:
3 Stars
was looking forward to seeing this, until I remembered Peter Jackson made a mockumentary that was in poor taste to silent film lovers: Forgotten Silver (he just never ends the joke, although the end credits specify that it's fiction).
This film is indeed a real documentary, and furthermore, it's a tribute to his grandfather who was a soldier in The Great War. The idea that war is useless is espoused. Young men had to endure horrors that no one should even dream of.
There is an introduction from Peter Jackson. Most of the movie is shown in 3-D. I found it pretty unnecessary, but hey, it was not bad. I do prefer things to jump out at me when it's in 3-D and this was pretty subdued.
In any case, it commemorates the WWI centennial and is a decent watch.
Vegan alert:-There is footage of sheared sheep.-Soldiers were served non-vegan foods such as butter, bacon, beef, and sausage rolls.-There is a segment on killing lice.-Dead horses were shown.
note that disturbing things happened to humans as well.

Avengers: Endgame:
1 and a half stars
Say 'green'.
I know my opinion might not be very popular as I am not a fan of the MCU or violence. However, despite it integrating time travel and quantum physics, I was reminded that in a film where there are too many characters, most things simply get lost. Also, there are too many references to other films. Pretty much the only redeeming factor in it was a bald and wise Tilda Swinton.
One of the most disturbing things about this movie is watching Scarlett Johansson's face, realizing she cannot move anything except for her lips and she can also blink her eyes. English actors are often trained not to blink for intensity, while Scarlett blinks at the speed of light, making it an extremely annoying distraction.
Rene Russo's accent was pretty bad. Thor's beer belly was just sad.
In a world where supposed superheros are slicing and dicing (what, they have to KILL to save the world? That is just plain creepy!), it made me wonder once again what I was doing there, sitting in a theater, watching an MCU film that I had no interest in seeing. Granted, I expected it to be even worse, but the actual good things sprinkled here and there were far too rare for me to enjoy what was going on.
Vegan alert:-Mayo/hot dogs reference.-Tony Stark offers his daughter crickets to eat.-Hulk has a big plate of eggs.-Scott's taco is covered in cheese.-There's a reference to Cheez-Its.-Morgan Stark wants a cheeseburger and Happy promises to get her as many cheeseburgers as she want (which would only clog her arteries and eventually cause severe harm to her, the environment, and the animals who had to die for her fleeting desire).
Vegan points:-Pepper briefly mentions composting.
Q&A with writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1949):
3 Stars
Pretty sure I saw this as a kid, but I watched it again just in case.
The songs were dated and cheesy.
Vegan alert:Whole roast turkey

The Boxing Kangaroo (1895):
2 and a half stars
Vegan alert:Man boxes a kangaroo.

I have not altered her reviews in any way.

"If people can't control their own emotions then they have to start trying to control other people's behaviour." - Robin Skynner; John Cleese
"When a toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you..." - Jill Blakeway
"How to not abuse someone. 'Don't hit them' would be mentioned but wouldn't be the focus. The focus would be on 'don't try to control them.'" - Holly, The Pervocracy
"You don't know how to love people. You only know how to own them. And because people will never act just like you want them to, Mother, you'll always feel betrayed....you'll always feel cheated. But you're the cheat, Mother. You're the one who uses our love for you to try and control us." - Orson Scott Card, Xenocide
"I think too much emphasis is put on love in general. I’ve heard of many atrocities done within families in the name of love but never in the name of respect." - Elvira G. Aletta
Characteristics of abuse and abusive relationships
"The most insidious aspect of living with an angry or abusive partner is not the obvious—nervous reactions to shouting, name-calling, criticism or other demeaning behavior. It's the adaptations you make to try to prevent those episodes." - Steven Stosny
Couples therapy makes things worse for victims of abuse
If violence has been, and especially if it currently still is an issue in your relationship, then Couple Counselling is not recommended. Nor is Mediation if you are going through separation or divorce. Basically the abuse itself has to be dealt with BEFORE any form of joint counselling or mediation can be effective, and in the meantime can, at best, deflect from the actual problem and fudge responsibility issues.

Message from International President Kinsey Robinson
To: All Local Unions, International Officers and International Field Staff
Below please find a release from NABTU President Sean McGarvey concerning the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the proposed Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). The CARES Act is expected to be passed by the House of Representatives and signed by the president.
TO: The Governing Board of Presidents, North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU)
FROM: Sean McGarvey, President, NABTU
DATE: March 26, 2020
SUBJECT: Summary of US Government COVID-19 relief legislation
In the last two weeks, Congress has passed one major piece of legislation and is poised to do the same in the coming days on a second bill. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) has been signed into law by the president. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) is scheduled to be voted on by the US House of Representatives as early as Friday, March 27 after already passing the US Senate on Wednesday, March 25. The House is expected to pass the bill and then it will head to the president who is expected to sign it into law.
Both of pieces of legislation were designed to provide economic relief for businesses and workers severely impacted by COVID-19. North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU) lobbied very aggressively to ensure each bill contained policies that would help the working families of the construction industry as well as its contractors. The following memo is a summary of many of the key provisions impacting the building trades and its industry partners.
While Congress is expected to officially recess until mid to late April (possibly longer), plans for a fourth relief bill are already coming together. With the help of all the affiliates and our councils, the building trades will begin lobbying on it immediately. As you will read, we have unfinished business and our members and their families are depending on us to get it done.
Unemployment Insurance in the FFCRA – the FFCRA makes it easier for individuals to apply for unemployment insurance (UI) I because it provided $1 billion in grants to help states administrate their unemployment compensation programs. An amount of $500 million is available to any state that takes certain steps to facilitate applying for UI in at least two of the following ways; in-person, by phone or online. An amount of $500 million is also available to states that experience a 10% increase in unemployment and that ease eligibility requirements for applicants impacted by COVID-19 by waiving work search requirements and eliminating the waiting week. If states receive any amount of this grant money, it will make it easier for workers to apply for unemployment insurance.
Unemployment Insurance in the CARES Act - the CARES Act expands UI programs administered by the states in four ways: (1) expands access to UI benefits; (2) increases the amount of UI payments; (3) extends the duration of UI benefits; and (4) eliminates waiting periods. The changes only go into effect if a state enters an agreement with the federal government agreeing to certain terms. However, because the federal government is offering to pay for 100% of the changes allowed by the bill, there is little reason for states not to offer these expanded benefits.
Here is a summary of how the CARES Act will positively impact workers who are receiving or will apply for UI benefits.
For workers who qualify for regular UI benefits:
· All weekly UI benefits will be increased by $600 for the next four months (through July 31);
· State-law mandated “waiting periods” are waived;
· Benefits can be received for an additional 13 weeks beyond what state law typically allows; and
· These enhancements are for unemployment for any reason – not just COVID-19.
For workers who typically would not qualify for regular UI benefits:
· Access to the UI system is expanded – individuals who have exhausted their benefits, independent contractors, sole proprietors, those without a wage history, and others who usually would not qualify for UI benefits are eligible for regular UI payments;
· These individuals may receive benefits if they are unemployed or unavailable to work because of COVID-19 (but otherwise would be available for work);
· These workers are entitled to up to 39 weeks of UI benefits (including any benefits they received under regular UI);
· All weekly UI benefits will be increased by $600 for the next four months (through July 31); and
· State-law mandated “waiting periods” are waived.
For people who are eligible for regular UI, the increased benefits begin when the state enters into an agreement with the federal government. For people who are not otherwise eligible for UI, but are now eligible, because of the CARES Act, the benefits begin with weeks of unemployment after January 27, 2020. Regardless, these changes to UI are in addition to the direct payments described below in this memo.
The following is a more detailed summary from the CARES Act explaining specific UI provisions in the bill. The summary above is taken from these more specific details of the unemployment insurance provisions in the bill. In short, this is a deeper dive.
Increased UI Payments
· The bill increases the amount of UI benefits workers receive each week by $600, from the time the state enters into an agreement with the Federal Government through July 31st.
· This extra $600/week will be sent to workers receiving regulaextended UI benefits, as well as workers receiving benefits under the expanded access and duration provisions of the new bill.
· The extra $600 may be included in the weekly UI payment, or sent as a separate, weekly payment.
· These payments are in addition to the $1,200/$2,400 direct payments provided for elsewhere in the bill that are not tied to the UI system.
Increased Access to UI
· This bill allows those who have exhausted their rights to UI or would typically be ineligible to receive UI benefits if they are unemployed or unavailable for work for of COVID-19-related reasons but would otherwise be able to and available for work.
· Examples of who will be eligible for UI under this section include the self-employed (e.g., independent contractors) and those who would normally not have a sufficient wage history to receive UI.
· Workers receiving benefits under this section will receive the weekly payments they would receive if they were eligible for regular UI, plus the extra $600/week described above.
· Generally speaking, workers can earn up to 39 weeks of UI payments under this section, including any weeks of UI they have already used.
· Any state-mandated waiting periods are waived for purposes of this benefit.
· States can use any evidence of prior earnings to calculate the amount of weekly benefit payments owed an individual. If someone does not produce sufficient evidence of prior earning history for a determination of weekly benefits to be made, they can instead earn a “minimum flat benefit” based on the average weekly payments made in the state.
· This benefit is not available to anyone who has the ability to telework with pay or is receiving paid sick leave or other paid leave benefits. If an individual remains out of work because of COVID-19 after exhausting their paid leave, they can then apply for these UI benefits.
Increased Duration of Regular UI
· The bill allows states to extend the length of UI benefits for workers who are eligible for regular or extended UI. In most cases, this allows for an extra 13 weeks of benefit payments. (Note that this extension is not available to individuals receiving benefits under Section 2102’s new expanded access rules.)
· To be eligible, an individual must exhaust all their rights to regulaextended UI under state law and must be actively seeking work.
· Individuals receiving benefits under this section will receive the extra $600/week provided by section 2104, until July 31, 2020.
· Anyone who is eligible for benefits under this section must use up these benefits before receiving payments under the expanded access provision (section 2102).
Waiting Periods Are Waived
· The bill offers states a powerful economic incentive to waive their state-law mandated “waiting periods” that prevent people from immediately receiving UI benefits.
· The federal government offers to pay for 100% of the total amount of regular UI benefits states pay to individuals for their first week of regular unemployment if states agree to waive these “waiting periods” through the end of 2020.
Examples – the following are anticipated real life scenarios of how the CARES Act will impact building trades men and women
  1. Jane Doe, a pipefitter, is laid off because the project site she was working on has been shut down due to Covid-19. She reported that she earned $60,000 of income on her most recent tax return, and she is eligible for regular UI benefits because she was an employee and has a prior earning history. She will receive: (1) her weekly UI benefits, which are a percentage of her prior salary, plus (2) an extra $600 per week (through July 31), plus (3) a $1,200 tax credit. Her state normally limits allows 26 weeks up to 39 weeks of regular and extended UI benefits and applies a “waiting week” before benefits are sent. Under the CARES Act, she will be able to receive benefits immediately and for up to 52 weeks because of this bill.
    1. John Smith is a first-year apprentice operating engineer. He started his apprenticeship in September but was laid-off in February because of COVID-19-related work slowdowns. He reported an income of $20,000 on his most recent tax return. In normal circumstances, he would be denied UI under his state’s eligibility rules because of a lack of work history. Under the CARES Act, the state would be able to use any documentation he submits of his earnings during his apprenticeship to calculate an appropriate weekly benefit. He will receive: (1) weekly UI benefits based on the pay stubs that establish his pre-layoff wages, plus (2) an extra $600 per week (through July 31), plus (3) a $1,200 tax credit. He can receive these weekly UI benefits for up to 39 weeks, as long as his unemployment continues to be caused by COVID-19.
    2. Jill Jones is an electrician who has been out of the workforce for a few years but was hired to start on a project at the end of March. This project was delayed because of COVID-19. While Jill would not typically be eligible for UI because of her lack of wage history, she can now apply for benefits because of the expanded access provisions of this bill. Because she did not report any income on her most recent tax return and has no wage history that can be used to calculate a weekly benefit amount, she will receive: (1) a “minimum flat benefit” based on the average weekly benefit paid in the state, plus (2) an extra $600 per week (through July 31), plus (3) a $1,200 tax credit. She will start receiving this benefit immediately because the state has waived its waiting period.
    Paid Sick Leave – the FFCRA created paid sick leave for employers with less than 500 employees. It is available to all employees, regardless of length of tenure with the employer. The employer would be required to cover 80 hours (full- time employees) or average of part-time worker’s hours over a 2-week period.
· Requires employers to pay:
o Regular wages, capped at $511/day ($5110 maximum) for employees unable to work because:
§ Employee is subject to a public COVID-19-related quarantine or isolation order
§ Health care provider has advised employee to self-quarantine
§ Employee is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and seeking diagnosis
o 2/3 of regular wages, capped at $200/day ($2000 maximum) for employees unable to work because the employee is:
§ Caring for an individual subject to a public quarantine or isolation order or who has been advised to self-quarantine
§ Caring for a son or daughter if the school or childcare facility is closed or childcare provider is unavailable
§ Experiencing similar conditions, as specified by HHS.
· Provides an option for employers in multiemployer bargaining units to satisfy their obligations by paying into a multiemployer benefit plan if the plan can pay employees the required benefits.
· Employers may take a credit against payroll taxes worth 100% of the amount they pay in required benefits (through Dec. 31, 2020).
· DOL can exempt employers with fewer than 50 employees from paying for leave to care for others if “requirements would jeopardize the viability of the business” and can exclude certain healthcare workers and first responders.
Paid Leave Through FMLA – the FFCRA also created paid leave, not paid sick leave, through the existing Family and Medical Leave Act. It only applies to employers with fewer than 500 employees. However, it is only available to employees who have been employed for 30 days with the employer from which they are requesting the leave.
· Requires employers to provide 10 days unpaid leave and up to an additional 10 weeks of paid leave to care for son or daughter whose school or childcare facility is closed, or childcare provider is unavailable for COVID-19 related reasons.
· Paid leave is 2/3 of regular wages, capped at $200/day ($10,000 maximum)
· Employees can elect to use accrued vacation, personal, medical or sick leave for the unpaid portion.
· Employers may take a credit against payroll taxes worth 100% of the amount they pay in required benefits (through Dec. 31, 2020).
· DOL can exempt employers with fewer than 50 employees if requirements would jeopardize business and can exclude certain healthcare workers and first responders.
Direct Payments – the CARES Act also provides direct payments to individuals and families. All U.S. residents with adjusted gross income up to $75,000 ($150,000 married), who are not a dependent of another taxpayer and have a work eligible social security number, are eligible for the full $1,200 ($2,400 married) payment. In addition, they are eligible for an additional $500 per child. This is true even for those who have no income, as well as those whose income comes entirely from non-taxable means-tested benefit programs, such as SSI benefits. For most Americans, no action on their part will be required in order to receive a rebate check as IRS will use a taxpayer’s 2019 tax return if filed, or their 2018 return. This includes many low-income individuals who file a tax return in order to take advantage of the refundable Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit. The rebate amount is reduced by $5 for each $100 that a taxpayer’s income exceeds the phase-out threshold ($75,000 for individuals, $150,000 married). The amount is completely phased- out for single filers with incomes exceeding $99,000, $146,500 for head of household filers with one child, and $198,000 for joint filers with no children.
Employee Retention Tax Credit – the CARES Act revives a tax credit that has been used before in the aftermath of natural disasters to for employers to retain employees. The amount of the credit is 50% of all employee wages per calendar quarter but won’t exceed $10,000 per employee per calendar quarter. In applying for the tax credit, the employer may include amounts paid to group health plans as “wages” if the amounts are not normally included as income to the employee. To receive the credit, the employer must experience: 1) a full or partial suspension of operations due to orders from a governmental authority limiting commerce, travel or group meetings due to COVID-19; or 2) a significant decline in gross receipts. The credit only applies to wages paid between March 12, 2020 and January 1, 2021. Tax exempt organizations are eligible for the credit. For employers with greater than 100 full-time employees, qualified wages are wages paid to employees when they are not providing services due to the COVID-19-related circumstances described above. For eligible employers with 100 or fewer full-time employees, all employee wages qualify for the credit, whether the employer is open for business or subject to a shut-down order.
Paycheck Protection Program – the CARES Act creates a new avenue for small businesses, veterans organizations, 501(c)(3) organizations or “any business concern” to receive a cash infusion if they do not employ more than 500 individuals. Specifically, it amends the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Section 7(a) Loan Program. The core mission of this program is to provide SBA-guaranteed financial assistance to small businesses that lack access to capital. Private lenders partner with SBA by making loans directly to small businesses and the SBA guarantees a portion of each loan. The CARES Act amends the program to direct the SBA to guarantee the entire loan. The loans are capped at $10 million, and interest shall not exceed 4%. Eligible loans may only be made between February 15, 2020 and June 30, 2020. Companies may use these loans for a wide range of purposes including acquisition of land, construction, materials, supplies, equipment, payroll costs, continuing group healthcare benefits, employee salaries, interest on mortgage, rent, and utilities. Additionally, SBA shall require lenders who make loans during the above-referenced period to provide payment deferment relief for not less than 6 months. The amount of loan forgiveness shall be reduced if the business laid off workers or reduced their wages. SBA, however, may grant exemptions to this rule. Finally, loans would be available immediately through more than 800 existing SBA-certified lenders, including banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions, and SBA would be required to streamline the process to bring additional lenders into the program. Depending on the definition of “any business concern” this could be an opportunity for Taft Hartley plans and unions to receive these loans.
Child Care Subsidies – the CARES Act provides $3.5 billion in grants to states for immediate assistance to childcare providers, but also to financially support child-care for families, including for healthcare workers, first responders, sanitation workers and other workers who have been deemed essential during the response to COVID-19 by public officials. This means that if a state or locality has deemed construction workers as essential, they may be eligible to receive funds from this grant to pay for childcare if the child for which care is provided is under 13 and resides with the construction worker.
Retaining Employees on Federal Job Sites – the CARES Act also opens up new authority for federal agencies to use existing funds to pay their contractors whose employees or subcontractors cannot perform work on a “site that has been approved by the Federal Government, including a federally-owned or leased facility, due to facility closures or other restrictions” and whose job duties cannot be performed remotely due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. This includes building trades workers. Payments to employees are limited to an average of 40 hours a week and exclude any credits the contractors are allowed for benefits they otherwise provide under the FFCRA or this Act. Applies only to paid leave or paid sick leave up to September 30, 2020.
Economic Injury Disaster Loans (Unions Eligible) – the CARES Act would expand eligibility for entities suffering economic harm due to COVID-19 to access SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL), while also giving SBA more flexibility to process and disperse small dollar loans. This includes 501(c)(5) entities. The bill allows entities that apply for an EIDL expedited access to capital through an Emergency Grant—an advance of $10,000 within three days to maintain payroll, provide paid sick leave, and to service other debt obligations. An amount of $10 billion would be provided to support the expanded EIDL program.
Single employer – the CARES Act provides single employer pension plan companies with more time to meet their funding obligations by delaying the due date for any contribution otherwise due during 2020 until January 1, 2021. At that time, contributions due earlier would be due with interest. The bill also provides that a plan’s status for benefit restrictions as of December 31, 2019, will apply throughout 2020.
Expands DOL Authority to Postpone Certain Deadlines – the CARES Act amends ERISA to provide the Department of Labor the ability to postpone certain ERISA filing deadlines for a period of up to one year in the case of a public health emergency.
Special rules for use of retirement funds – the CARES Act also, consistent with previous disaster-related relief, waives the 10-percent early withdrawal penalty for distributions up to $100,000 from qualified retirement accounts for coronavirus-related purposes made on or after January 1, 2020. In addition, income attributable to such distributions would be subject to tax over three years, and the taxpayer may recontribute the funds to an eligible retirement plan within three years without regard to that year’s cap on contributions. The bill also provides flexibility for loans from certain retirement plans for coronavirus-related relief. A coronavirus-related distribution is one made to an individual:
(1) who is diagnosed with COVID-19, (2) whose spouse or dependent is diagnosed with COVID-19, or (3) who experiences adverse financial consequences as a result of being quarantined, furloughed, laid off, having work hours reduced, being unable to work due to lack of child care due to COVID-19, closing or reducing hours of a business owned or operated by the individual due to COVID-19, or other factors as determined by the Treasury Secretary.
Temporary waiver of required minimum distribution rules for certain retirement plans and accounts – the CARES Act waives the required minimum distribution rules for 401Ks, 403bs, SEPs and IRAs for calendar year 2020. This bill provides relief to individuals who would otherwise be required to withdraw funds from such retirement accounts during the economic slowdown due to COVID-19.
Temporary hospitals – while neither the FFCRA nor CARES Act addresses prevailing wage rates for the building of temporary hospitals, NABTU has obtained confirmation from the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) that prevailing wage will be paid on USACE federal contracts to build these structures.
Airport construction – the CARES Act provides $10 billion dollars to airports, some of which may be used for construction and is already covered by prevailing wage.
Department of HHS – the CARES Act provides approximately $31 billion in grant money for CDC and other programs, some of which may be used for construction. These programs do not yet have prevailing wage coverage on them.
Exclusion for certain employer payments of student loans – the provision enables employers to provide a student loan repayment benefit to employees on a tax-free basis. Under the provision, an employer may contribute up to $5,250 annually toward an employee’s student loans, and such payment would be excluded from the employee’s income. The $5,250 cap applies to both the new student loan repayment benefit as well as other educational assistance (e.g., tuition, fees, books) provided by the employer under current law. The provision applies to any student loan payments made by an employer on behalf of an employee after date of enactment and before January 1, 2021.
Institutional Refund and Federal Student Loan Flexibility – for students who dropped out of school as a result of COVID-19, the student is not required to return Pell grants or federal student loans to the Secretary. Waives the requirement that institutions calculate the amount of grant or loan assistance that the institution must return to the Secretary in the case of students who dropped out of school as a result of COVID-19.
Satisfactory Progress For students who dropped out of school as a result of COVID-19 – the student’s grades do not affect a student’s federal academic requirements to continue to receive Pell Grants or student loans
Student loan debt collection – separate from the FFCRA or the CARES Act, the US Education Department has announced that it will temporarily suspend collection and wage garnishments of individuals with defaulted student loans. It will also refund approximately $1.8 in garnishments collected since the president declared a national emergency on March 13. In addition, third party debt collectors have been instructed by the department to halt all activities related to debt collection.
Foreclosure Moratorium and Consumer Right to Request Forbearance – the bill provides up to 180 days of forbearance for federally-backed mortgages if experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 emergency. Applicable mortgages included those purchased by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, insured by HUD, VA, or USDA, or directly made by USDA. The authority provided under this section terminates on the earlier of the termination date of the national emergency concerning the coronavirus or December 31, 2020. Furthermore, the bill prohibits foreclosures on all federally backed mortgage loans for a 60-day period beginning on March 18, 2020.
Temporary Moratorium on Eviction Filings – the CARES Act prohibits landlords from initiating legal action to evict or to charge fees, penalties, or other charges for 120 days if the landlord’s mortgage on that property is insured, guaranteed, supplemented, protected, or assisted in any way by HUD, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the rural housing voucher program, or the Violence Against Women Act of 1994.
While many of the provisions in the FFCRA and CARES Act will help construction workers and their families, there are several priorities that did not make it in. The following is a beginning list of priorities that NABTU will be pursuing in future COVID-19 relief legislation.
Pension Relief – Speaker Nancy Pelosi has already publicly stated that pension relief is a top priority for her in the next COVID-19 relief bill. NABTU lobbied heavily for its inclusion in the CARES Act but was ultimately unsuccessful due to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s opposition. However, NABTU has commitments from President Trump, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that they will support its inclusion in the fourth COVID-19 relief bill.
COBRA Subsidies – neither the FFCRA nor the CARES Act provides COBRA subsidies. NABTU is currently lobbying for a 100 percent subsidy for 15 months to be included in the upcoming fourth relief bill.
Prevailing wage coverage – as referenced above, there are some funds included in the bill that could be used for construction but aren’t currently covered by prevailing wage. NABTU will aggressively pursue changes to this part of the statute in the upcoming fourth relief bill not just for these programs, but others that may be added.
Health and Welfare Funds – the CARES Act did not have policy in it regarding Taft Hartley health and welfare plans. NABTU will continue to lobby for federal financial support for these plans.
Union loan eligibility – the CARES Act has many opportunities for entities to apply for loans to stem COVID-19’s severe economic impact on them and their employees. Unfortunately, some of these opportunities are not extended to 501(C)(5)s. NABTU will be advocating to add unions into these expanded loan programs for the fourth relief bill.
Paid sick leave – the FFCRA allows for the Secretary of Labor to wave an employer’s (who has less than 50 employees) requirement to provide paid sick leave to their employees. NABTU supports rescinding this authority due to the potential for it to be used against construction workers.
Infrastructure – jobs, jobs, jobs. The success of the industry’s recovery from this pandemic will be centered on exactly that. To that end, NABTU proposes the following:
· Massive and immediate cash infusions into traditional core infrastructure programs, dispersed as grants, in the following areas:
o Surface transportation
o Water, sewer, and water resources
o Energy infrastructure
o Housing and telecommunications
o Public schools
· Immediate increase in Corps of Engineers funding to build hospital capacity. The Corps of Engineers, working with the building trades, has the capacity to swiftly and safely increase the hospital bed capacity in areas hardest hit by COVID-19
· Immediate investments in the 16 critical physical and virtual infrastructure sectors identified by the Department of Homeland Security as well as projects of regional and national significance such as Gateway. We cannot afford to have a major infrastructure failure at this time, and investments in these sectors will help to prevent one.
· Flexibility to investors
NABTU supports making it easier for businesses and investors to obtain loans as this is key to stabilizing and protecting the long-term health of job creation in the construction industry.
· Expansion of bonding
NABTU supports the expanded use of bonding to raise revenue to make such massive investments. Vehicles such as raising the volume cap on Private Activity Bonds, and the creation of Move America Bonds, both of which have been introduced in both Chambers, would provide much needed resources in order to meet this massive mobilization.

2020.03.26 17:29 setch22 Throwback Write-Up #2: The Roots - Things Fall Apart

Artist: The Roots
Album: Things Fall Apart

Album Background
To understand the lead-up to Things Fall Apart’s release, its important to recognize the dilemma The Roots found themselves in as they set out to record the follow-up to 1996’s Illadelph Halflife. The Roots were a bit….out of place - at least within the context of the day’s hip-hop environment. While hip-hop’s mainstream was dominated by the East Coast-West Coast beef, the larger-than-life personalities of Puff Daddy and Jay-Z, and the bubbling rise of Southern hip-hop, The Roots were at a bit of a cross-roads. They represented the push-back to Bad Boy, a critical darling that combined jazz and hip-hop in a way that satisfied everybody – except the mainstream. They weren’t the only acts pushing back, but The Roots lacked what other acts that managed to push through the East Coast-West Coast beef had: an identity. This isn’t to say The Roots didn’t have anything to say, they just hadn’t figured out a way to package together their unique blend of neo-soul, jazz, and hip-hop in a way that the masses could latch onto.
While their previous record had pulled from the grittier New York sound that Wu-Tang had helped bring to the forefront of hip-hop, a different set of influences would help shape Things Fall Apart. While band-leader ?uestlove spent time working on D’Angelo’s Voodoo¸ he focused on learning from his contemporaries, citing DJ Premier and J Dilla as major influences in his evolution of sound. They helped him learn to play “dirty”, making his beats off-kilter and less – well – clean. Nobody doubted ?uest’s capability as a drummer, but if anything he was too studied for the era. His beats didn’t give rapper Black Thought much room to explore his grittier side, and in the era of Biggie’s violent narratives snatching the spotlight, The Roots needed a darker edge to help snatch some of the spotlight. In his 2013 memoir Mo’ Meta Blues, ?uestlove talks about a turning point in his production career, in which he played an early version of eventual Things Fall Apart stand-out “Double Trouble” for Dilla and DJ Premier. “I knew that the other guys respected me as a drummer… but I also wanted them to respect me as a producer”.
What the record came to be was nothing short of pioneering: a seamless combination of the burgeoning neo-soul movement and the gritty sounds dominating the hip-hop charts; a masterful combination of the live instrumentation they had perfected over their previous three projects, and the new-age sampling that was dominating much of hip-hop’s sound. This combination of sound - so inherently old and new, chaotic but focused, hard-hitting but psychedelic – gave Black Thought room to flex his lyrical muscles, cementing himself as one of the top lyricists of the era (and his place in my top 3 rappers of all-time).
Album Review
Before getting into the tracklist, I feel as though it is important to discuss both the album’s title and it’s art. Things Fall Apart is named after the classic (and often spark-noted) novel of the same name by Chinua Achebe. The Roots – and associated acts within their lane, such as Common and Mos Def – were meant to parallel the main character of the novel, Okonkwo. Okonkwo leads an African tribe during the rise of European colonialism, and despite being respected by his peers and being considered the strongest warrior amongst his peers, he is unable to fight back against the colonizers, with his peers submitting to the invaders’ authority. While not explicitly stated, The Roots’ “colonizers” are the previously mentioned acts that dominated the airwaves in the late 90’s, as the “bling era” truly got into full-swing. Much like Okonkwo, The Roots were not simply going to cower and accept this new leadership in hip-hop. That being said (spoilers if you for some reason haven’t read the novel, and are interested in doing so), The Roots know this is ultimately a losing battle. The labels (read: colonizers) had too many resources invested to overcome, and the most that could be done was to hold the line.
The main artwork, known as “Woman Running”, comes from a riot in Brooklyn during the height of the Civil Rights era. It depicts two black teenagers being chased by dozens of police officers, and the genuine fear in the woman’s face is as powerful of an image as you’ll find: aggressive, unflinching, in-your-face. This iconic image represented the injustice of the Civil Rights era and captured the eye of anybody who happened upon it. There were four alternative covers as well: “Ace in the Hand”, showing mob boss Giuseppe Masseria’s dead, outstretched arm holding a single Ace playing card; “The Church Bombing”, depicting a mostly-destroyed church, with remaining stained-glass that portrays persevering hope and spirituality; “Baby in the Rubble”, an iconic shot of a baby left behind in the aftermath of Japanese destruction in China in the 1930’s; and “Crying Child”, showing a malnourished Somalian child and representing the famine that still ruled much of the world.
Track-by-Track Review
  1. Act Won (Things Fall Apart)
The album begins with two samples of dialogue, laid over brooding instrumentation that at times sounds like it is trying to cut through into the forefront, with drum-kicks and the spinning of records cutting into and out of the audio. The most important part, however, is the dialogue: a conversation cut from Spike Lee’s 1990 movie Mo’ Better Blues, and a quote from Harry Allen, an activist and PR genius who helped Public Enemy invoke emotion in their audience to inspire conversation and change. The first clip seems to represent The Roots’ internal dilemma, in which Denzel Washington’s character complains that black people aren’t supporting their art. “If we had to depend upon black people to eat, we would starve to death…..It incenses me that our own people don’t realize our own heritage, our own culture, this is our music.” This same dialogue had to have been happening internally, as The Roots were unable to find support for their music amongst a market dominated by braggadocio that they felt wasn’t doing enough to talk about the very real issues plaguing their community.
Wesley Snipe’s character retorts back that “The people don’t come because you grandiose motherfuckers don’t play shit that they like. If you played the shit that they liked, then the people would come. Simple as that.” By beginning the album with this clip, the band acknowledged their own reputation, of making brilliant music that nobody wanted to listen to outside of their core fanbase. They had a dedicated following, but if you weren’t a Roots fan, then you didn’t particularly give a shit about them. It foreshadows what is to come for the rest of the record: a change in sound, combining the brilliant music they knew they could create with the sounds that piqued the interest of the public. The Harry Allen quote furthers this, suggesting that hip-hop records and, by extension, The Roots are “treated as though they are disposable…they are not maximized as product, not to mention as art”.
  1. Table of Contents (Parts 1 & 2)
This track begins with Black Thought seemingly killing time, waiting on the drum-line to kick in, building up towards his verse as the instrumental builds up to the kick. When the instrumental does kick, it is meant to immediately let the listener know: this isn’t like the previous records from The Roots. It’s messy, even chaotic, and showcases the influences of the contemporaries he’s spent ample time with – namely, J Dilla, as it’s mixed in a way that keeps listeners on their toes at all times. It creates a platform for Black Thought to stretch out over the track, with the drumline cutting in and out to allow for Thought to mix up his flows. While on its surface, Thought’s verse may come across as aimless and simply a well-constructed way for him to say that he’s the best rapper out, it is important to remember what this track represents. This is the turning point in The Roots’ career, as they blossomed out of their shell from a technically proficient but at times tasteless jazz rap band, into an interesting and unique group determined to stand out in the now-crowded hip-hop scene. As Black Thought’s verse fades out, an abrupt switch brings about Part 2, with Malik B on the vocals. A more focused, albeit barer, beat gives Malik room to lay down a verse chock-full of internals and dense rhyme-schemes that switch up constantly, showing that it isn’t just the instrumentals that were going to be constantly changing up on this record.
  1. The Next Movement
While Table of Contents showcased the new, chaotic direction TFA was about to undertake, The Next Movement made a more explicit statement: this isn’t just the beginning of a new record; it’s a change within hip-hop. The Roots weren’t going to let the more profound, raw hip-hop styles they loved be pushed to the side by the Bling era, and Thought makes that abundantly clear, spitting
Yo, the whole state of things in the world ‘bout to change
Black rain fallin’ from the sky look strange
The ghetto is red hot, we steppin on flames
Yo, it’s the inflation on the price for fame
And it was all the same, but then the antidote came
With DJ Jazzy Jeff scratching and Jazzyfatnastees provided background vocals, ?uestlove’s funky drumline provides a base for Black Thought to lay not only two energetic and technically impressive verses, but also one of the most addictive hooks he’s written to date. While Thought exclaims that he’s “The Dalai Lama of the mic”, The Roots as a collective hit you with a right hook meant to prove that they can make accessible, hit music while still being true to who they are as artists.
  1. Step Into the Realm
On Step into the Re(a)lm, ?uestlove showcases a little-known technique used often in the early 90s: the pause tape. ?uest described this process in an interview with DRUM! Magazine, saying
“When you wanted to create a drum loop, you get a recorder, press record and pause at the same time. When the drum break came, you would let the paused tape go right on the 1, and then pause it on the 1 again. After you did this about 20 times, you would have about five minutes of drums.”
Obviously this process was incredibly tedious, and was left behind by improved sampling technology that was prominent by the time the group was recording this project. Yet, a not so subtle homage can be heard on this track, with the backing track fading in and out, with the break coming at the end of the 45. This makes the already somber instrumental give even more room for Malik B and Black Thought’s hard hitting bars to pack an even bigger punch. The beat fades away for Thought to spit about his “mic slapping you senseless” and rolling through your hood “cocked back, Me and Hot Mack, the ’98, El Dorado Cadillac Jacks”.
  1. The Spark
While Black Thought can tend to get most of the shine when talking about The Roots’ pens, Malik B showcases on “The Spark” why he’s not an MC to be trifled with. With another head-bopping drumline from ?uest backing him, Malik spits on his purpose in life, driven by his faith in Islam. His faith is at odds with his violent tendencies, which he states are products of his environment. While he struggles with this internal conflict, he warns any who oppose him that are “wondering what’s in my heart, velocity or piety; yo, it depends on which one you bring to surface; at times I get trifled but to worship is my purpose”. He continues his exploration of this internal struggle between peace and violence, stating his full Islamic name is Abdul Malik, meaning servant of God. But just bars later, he spits “show me the vault or the safe, cause I’m on the paper chase”. While Malik explores this internal struggle, a smooth bassline combines with a keyboard-laden backtrack (both courtesy of D’Angelo) to give him room to shine, and they way his vocals are layered on certain bars really helps make his bars hit on what feels like his chance at the spotlight on this record.
  1. Dynamite!
While it feels almost wrong to use the word “banger”, given its connotations and tendency to be used to describe records lacking lyrical muscles or real meaning…..this track’s kind of a banger. J Dilla’s production hand shines, sampling a funky guitar from Nirvana (not that one, a 60’s jazz band by the same name). The track manages to stand out amongst an already stacked tracklist, with Black Thought’s hook proving to be infectious (edit: it’s taken me way too long to write the next track review, I keep coming back to this). Thought and Rehani Sayeed go back and forth throughout the track, effortlessly weaving into and out of each verse, talking about the importance of being present while riding this beat with some absolutely insane flows. And god DAMN is the beat on this thing sick. It’s quintessential Dilla, seemingly basic on the surface, but the more you listen to it the better it sounds. And while it may not seem like some technically complex thing, there’s a reason nobody could go toe-to-toe with Dilla: he was the only one who could make beats like this. For that matter. As soon as you finish reading this….go spin Donuts. I mean, listen to Things Fall Apart first if you haven’t. But like, right after. Donuts.
  1. Without a Doubt
This Lady B-assisted joint features a sample flip from fellow Philadelphia artist Schoolly D’s “Saturday Night”, and you’d be hard-pressed to argue that they don’t do the beat justice. With ?uest’s production hand spinning the sample into and out of the drumline, it gives the song a lot more unpredictability, and this gives Black Thought room to lay two of his most under-rated verses in his illustrious discography. That being said, this song acts as an ode to Philadelphia, with Lady B’s hook bringing things together. Thought’s verses constantly change flow, and the beat almost sounds like it reacts to his bars, giving them more space where he needs it. And this song further pushes what this entire album seemed to state: “Warn, ring the alarm, cause here The Roots come”.
  1. Ain’t Sayin’ Nothin’ New
So you like rapping? What about when one of the greatest MC’s of all-time raps his ass off, with one of his greatest influences matching him bar-for-bar? I don’t say this lightly when I say this is some of the best rapping you’ll find on this entire project, with Black Thought and Dice Raw absolutely spazzing on an infectious ?uestlove beat. They make it clear that the popular acts of the day don’t impress them, and suggesting that those guys, well, aint sayin nothin new. Dice Raw raps like HE’s the one who belongs on everybody’s top 10 lists, and honestly might have gotten the better of Thought on this track. That’s not to say Thought doesn’t deliver great verses, but Raw has more moments in which he shines.
Straight from the old school, ayo, Raw’s in full effect
I’m like, Lex Luther with rifles filled with kryptonite
When you grip the mic, its like, c’mon kids, lets say goodnight!
You don’t like me? But don’t even know why you should hate me
You scared to face these so I still remain safely
  1. Double Trouble
I feel like I wasted the “So you like rapping?” line a song too early. A song meant to pay homage to the original “double trouble” routine from the movie Wild Style, Black Thought and Mos Def put together one of hip-hop’s greatest examples of rappers trading bars. Ever. The beat, which ?uest told Drum Magazine took him about five hours to get the drums right for, is the epitome of the “dirty” sound that has come up so often throughout this write-up. Right from the get-go, Black Thought steers into this dirty sound by scatting at the top of the hook. As far as the bars go, there isn’t really anything I can say that does it justice. If the idea of Black Thought and Mos Def trading bars doesn’t speak for itself, then I probably can’t help you.
It’s also crazy to think that this song originally featured Talib Kweli as well, but there were too many bars for one song. Black Thought chose to steer into a Run-D.M.C. style track, with the back-and-forth bars meant to play like a tug-of-war between the rappers. This song’s background has one of my favorite hip-hop stories as well, with Black Thought recounting Mos leaving mid-recording to “go get a fish sandwich” and not coming back for a week. So there’s that.
  1. Act Too (The Love of My Life)
This song acts as an ode to hip-hop itself, with Thought calling it the love of his life throughout the track. He weaves in stories of struggling in his quest to make it in hip-hop, saying “it was all for you” and that he wouldn’t have made it in life if it weren’t for hip-hop. While Thought’s verse isn’t much deeper than just being a love letter to hip-hop, the guest verse provided by Chicago rapper Common is far more critical of the direction of hip-hop. While referencing his incredible song “I Used to Love H.E.R.” from Resurrection, Common expresses his discontent with the state of hip-hop, with bars aimed at N.W.A. (when we touch, it was more than just a Fuck the Police) and Puff (Her Daddy’ll beat H.E.R., eyes all Puff-ed). He seems to have the same underlying attitude of hip-hop being the love of his life, but instead expresses his discontent with the way hip-hop’s other suitors choose to treat her. For Common, it was always about love, and hip-hop had been overrun by hate. The beautiful beat acts as a perfect backdrop for these two to portray their love of hip-hop.
  1. 100% Dundee
While not the most popular song on the album, this one has stood out as one of my favorites from day one. Right from the get, Thought comes out the gate just spazzing – “Yo, on these seventy-three keys of ivory and ebony; I swear solemnly that I’ll forever rock steadily”. The title and hook act as a reference to Crocodile Dundee, where if hip-hop is the wild, the Roots are the absolute best out there, akin to Mick Dundee hunting fake MCs. With Rahzel beatboxing and Kamal Gray shining on the piano, the beat is just dirty enough to give Black Thought and Malik B room to spit some of their best verses on this whole project (Note: I think I’ve said that on almost half the songs on this project. It’s just that kind of album. Sorry). As far as the content goes, it basically re-iterates the ideas presented by calling the track 100% Dundee. They’re a level above everybody else in hip-hop, and they’re out to kill any fake MC’s who dare stand in their path.
  1. Diedre vs. Dice
A short 45-second interlude, Diedre vs. Dice consists of a short Dice Raw verse that was probably just too dope to be left off the project, but wasn’t able to be extrapolated into a full-fledged idea/song. With a barebones beat consisting of a dirty drum-line from ?uest and some strings that come into and out of the instrumental rather quickly, Dice Raw warns that “to me, these punk MC’s is nothin but fruit”. While short, it provides a needed break in the album that has just been going full-force for about ten tracks straight.
  1. Adrenaline!
And just as Diedre vs. Dice provides a mild break in the heavy-hitting instrumentals, Adrenaline! Comes right back with a stand-out performance not only by four spitters, but also by Kamal Gray on piano absolutely shining behind ?uestlove’s beat. While by this point in the project it should come as no surprise that Black Thought, Malik B, and Dice Raw all come through with heavy-hitting verses, a pre-Roc Beanie Sigel verse may come out of left field a bit, but his talent shines through already. This song is as Philly as it gets, with every rapper on here making references to Philly spots and icons. And the hook, while as barebones as a hook can really be, still manages to act as an earworm.
  1. 3rd Acts: ? Vs. Scratch 2 … Electric Boogaloo
This interlude, consisting entirely of scratching, was probably just put here so they could put Electric Boogaloo in a song title. Note: I really wanted to type a long-winded thing about how the lyricism just doesn’t stand up to some other tracks on the album and do this whole thing. But The Weeknd album comes out in like an hour and a half. So….priorities.
  1. You Got Me
Here we are. The big one. If this is the only track you’ve heard from The Roots, that’s okay. You need to fix it, but it’s okay. This is one of those songs that transcends beyond a genre or an album a little bit. Even though this album is amazing, this song reached a whole different level that the rest of the album never reached. This track won the group a grammy, and is far and away their biggest hit, despite not having anything that screams “Hit Single” about it. The hook, originally written by a then-unknown Jill Scott, is performed on the album cut by the amazing Erykah Badu.
The track tells the story of Thought meeting a woman from Philly while performing in Paris and linking when they get back, and the struggles of their budding relationship. The hook combines with Eve’s verse to act as the woman’s perspective, with her questioning if Thought only loves the mic before ensuring him that she could be trusted. The hook reassures this – “Baby don’t worry, you know that you got me”.
The instrumental on this thing is absolutely beautiful, with a rather simple guitar and drumline being supported by background vocals and strings to give an airy, euphoric sound that just plays so well into Erykah’s voice. It isn’t until the outro that you hear a whole lot out of ?uestlove, but this is one of the few tracks where he almost doesn’t need to take the center stage.
  1. Don’t See Us
As the album winds down, the instrumentals stay a little more low-key, like in the preceding track. The beat on this thing constantly changes, with a basic drumline and handclap being the only consistency. The keyboards on this are great when they show up, and the beat just begs for somebody to rap over it. And that’s just what Malik B, Black Thought, and Dice Raw all do, with six verses packed into this track. That being said, this track is honestly one of the weaker full-length tracks on the project and one of the only knocks on it. That’s not to say that it’s bad, because the instrumental is cool and the rappers all provide nice verses. But compared to so many of the other songs on this track list, this track just lacks that it factor, that thing that jumps out and grabs you and makes you go “Oh shit, that was kinda crazy”.
  1. The Return to Innocence Lost
The first time this song came on, I was just relaxing to this album and enjoying the unique sounds that make The Roots so incredible. There had been four or five times that I had stopped and went, “okay, I wasn’t ready for that, holy shit”. Boy was I naïve.
The Return to Innocence Lost is a spoken word poem by Ursula Rucker describing the vicious cycle of the hood. Anthony Tidd plays the guitar that weaves in and out behind her. I really don’t know how to describe how powerful this poem is, other than to say that it is one of the most haunting, disturbing things I’ve ever heard. When I write these track-by-track reviews, I usually sit and listen to each track 4-5 times before I start writing. I didn’t make it through the second round of this one. Its…. Incredible. And haunting. And powerful. And I could never do it justice in a hhh write-up.
  1. Act Fore….The End?
The introduction of this track gives a peak into the way The Roots operate: don’t know what to do? Make music. With a piano sample from an old TV Series theme Eager Beaver, scratching throughout, and one final dirty drumline from ?uest, the beat was laid out there for Black Thought to shine all on his own. He contributes three stellar verses that make up for an otherwise forgettable hook, and while this “hidden track” doesn’t add a ton to the album as a whole, it’s still a good track and I wouldn’t dare complain about more music from The Roots.
While “political” or “conscious” hip-hop is usually associated with having bars aimed at political figures or talking about systematic change, much of Things Fall Apart doesn’t fit that mold. It’s almost as if the sound itself was a statement, because it isn’t like Thought was spending lines shit-talking Bill Clinton. He was talking about the Philly streets, about the area he grew up in. Yet, the political tag this album gets applied doesn’t feel inherently misplaced. Thought’s stories act as their own message, taking the concept of suffering going on in his neighborhood and putting it on this grand pedestal for all to see.
All in all, this project not only provides some of the best live instrumentation in hip-hop, but some of the best lyricism you'll find as well. This project has some clear influence, not only other other projects of the Soulquarian era, but decades later as well. You can hear it on modern classics like To Pimp a Butterfly, as well as on some of the instrumentals chosen by Chicago's SaveMoney collective and related acts. This album feels like a moment in hip-hop, where an entire sound cultivated into one big project that everybody can look back on as one of the pinnacles of an entire sound.
Five Favorites: Dynamite!, The Return to Innocence Lost, You Got Me, 100% Dundee, Double Trouble
Final Rating: 9.6/10

Leshawna: Yes. first time, your crazy girlfriend told the other team how to win. the second time Heather was a total bitch who dragged us to paint fight and now you ate our food. so we lost because of you, not Beth.

And you just came and you stole everything I had. I wanted to return to be my TDI self and you arrived and took my chance for redemption. you like Lady Gaga who stole Madonna's title. but unlike Madonna I won't ruin my career in the eurovision

Bridgette: sorry Duncan. I just looked at this sand castle. its so beautiful
Duncan: and the kid who building it has cool cowboy hat
Bridgette: my big sister Jill has a boyfriend who wearing hats all the time. its so lame. I will never date a boy who wearing hats all the time. where is Cody

2020.02.22 15:15 PresidentRaggy [MATCH THREAD] Chelsea Women vs. Manchester City Women (A) - 14:00 GMT, 23/2 (WSL)


Scroll down for match events, etc.!
Date: 23 February 2020
KO: 14:00 GMT / 9:00 EST / 1:00 AEDT (early Monday morning for Australian fans)
Competition: FA Women’s Super League
Venue: Academy Stadium
Welcome to the /chelsealadiesfc match thread for this FAWSL battle as second-place Chelsea head to Manchester to face top-of-the-table City. Here, you will find a game preview, how to follow, and our live match updates.


A big week for Chelsea begins away at Manchester City, who are ahead of the Blues by just one point in the FA Women’s Super League. Chelsea still have a game in hand.
Both teams know the significance of this match on the title race. Chelsea have scored more goals and have the better record over all competitions.Keira Walsh painted City as a bit of an underdog in a match preview, and Millie Bright warned against overconfidence in a conversation with the Chelsea website. City will also feel more confident at home, as they have an 11-game winning streak at the Academy Stadium. Chelsea have never won a league match here.
Both clubs have a bevy of players able to score, and Chelsea have thus far surmounted their tendency to allow opponents to get a goal in first before turning the game around. The Blues are on five consecutive clean sheets and have been successful in pressing opponents when they lose possession. Emma Hayes has shuffled formations but will likely play four at the back, and with Sam Kerr back from international duty, may deploy a 4-4-2 with Kerr and Bethany England up top. Manchester City have Ellen White, an experienced England international, playing up top and could have Pauline Bremer and Lauren Hemp with her in a 4-4-3.
City took first place from Arsenal at home on February 2 with a 2-1 victory. The Gunners are in third, two points behind Chelsea and three points off the top.
Chelsea have yet to lose in the league this year, and City has not lost in FAWSL competition since facing Chelsea on 8 December in London. In the reverse fixture at Kingsmeadow, The Blues scored two late goals to snatch three points, after Caroline Weir scored against the run of play in the 59th minute. Sky Blues keeper Ellie Roebuck saved a shot from Ji So-Yun in the 79th minute, and our leading scorer Beth England reacted quickly to power a header home. It took fewer than two minutes for Chelsea to find another chance, as England drove in a low shot and Maren Mjelde found herself in a perfect position to turn the ball in.
After this match, Chelsea face off against Arsenal in the Continental Tyres Cup on Feb. 29.


Nick Cushing left his managerial post at City earlier this month following the win over Arsenal. Alan Mahon, Cushing’s former No. 2, is directing the Mancunians as interim manager.
Fran Kirby remains sidelined for Chelsea after being diagnosed with pericarditis in the fall.
Chelsea’s Millie Bright:
...you never know what to expect in football and a lot can happen and change week in, week out but as long as we are training hard we have the momentum in our favour and I can’t see a reason why we can’t go on and win everything.
We also want to remain unbeaten, that is an aim, and so far so good.
It is a big game [versus Manchester City] but our mentality all season has been every game is a final and that is the mentality we will have again.
The season has shown if you drop points you will be relying on others to get results for you and that is not a position we want to be in, we want to rely on ourselves to go and win the league and winning puts us in the position to do that.
City’s Keira Walsh:
Chelsea have scored a lot of goals and are in good form but so are we – we’re comfortable defending with and without the ball and against top teams, we’ve put in good performances, working hard with the grit and determination to win.
We have top players and we should take confidence in that. Hopefully, that will get us through.

CHELSEA Berger, Bright, Ingle, England, Ji, Reiten, Eriksson (c), Mjelde, Kerr, Cuthbert, Andersson. (Formation TBD)
Subs: Telford, Thorisdottir, Carter, Blundell, Bright, Engman, Spence, Bachmann.
MANCHESTER CITY Roebuck, Stokes, Bonner, Houghton (c), Scott, Stanway, Beckie, Hemp, White, Weir, Walsh.
Subs: Benameur, Coombs, Bremer, Toland, Park, Wullaert, Fidalgo.
Got a coffee? A beer? Some tea? A Carabao energy drink? It's TIME!
1' Chelsea ask questions immediately of City's defense. Cuthbert slips Kerr the ball and our Australian pops it over Roebuck -- she wheels away to celebrate but Roebuck gets something on it and it falls to England who totally whiffs it.
2' Down the other end, White finds space to drill the ball low to the near post. Berger blocks it and it goes back for a corner -- nothing gained there for the home side. Phew!
6' Kerr looks to square it for England but it's blocked. Bright has a chance to cross it into England seconds later, but Roebuck gets something on it again.
7' England pops a cross in from the left-hand side but Roebuck runs out to get it and gives her team some instruction.
9' Great effort from Reiten down the left to keep the ball in play, she crosses it and Sam Kerr hits a glancing header that goes horizontal, not into the goal. Aggressive start from the Blues so far.
10' Beckie sends a cross in and Weir meets it on the volley, but she can't keep it down and it flies over the bar.
11' Eriksson foul gives City a free kick about 30 yards from goal, pretty much in the center of the pitch. Header from White goes just wide.
14' Chelsea throw after Hemp's cross misses everyone in the Blues box.
16' Chelsea Women Supporters' Group making a fine noise!! There were about 200 of them who traveled, I believe.
17' Bright drives down the center of the pitch and lays it off to England on the left hand side, she sends a low ball in and City is able to deal with the danger.
19' Well-worked from Chelsea! Kerr's header forces Roebuck to turn the ball behind at the post for a Chelsea corner. No one can turn in the corner, unfortunately.
21' Hemp picks up a long ball that goes over Mjelde, giving MCI possession.
22' MCI Goal. Ellen White turns in from close range. Very close to being offside and she slides in a cross from Beckie past Berger, who had her body in the right position but couldn't get her hands down in time.
24' Momentum has swung City's way, Chelsea's first touches a little frantic at the moment but there's still a long way to go.
28' Nervy moment as Stanway is set free but three Chelsea defenders converge to stop her from taking the chance.
29' Great ball from Mjelde to Kerr, who is at a tight angle and gives Roebuck no trouble.
30' Berger gets low to collect a shot.
33' Beth England wins us a corner after forcing a City defender to deflect her cross behind.
34' In from Mjelde, England can't turn it in and the ball's out for a throw. Appeals for handball from the women in darker blue do not sway the referee.
37' Free kick to City just by the left side corner flag as Mjelde trips Hemp up. A wasted chance from the home side, and Chelsea have a goal kick.
39' JI GOoOOOOALLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Beautiful shot from 25 yards out, Roebuck almost had it and looks like it hit a City head on its way past her. Poor clearance by Houghton leads us to equalize!
43' Chelsea trying to get a second goal before halftime, passing across the City box but not potent enough.
45' One minute added time. Cuthbert made a blazing run down the right side to get a cross in, but unfortunately her effort couldn't find another dark blue shirt.


46' Back underway at The Academy Stadium!!
48' Reiten delivers a cross that flies wide.
54' Good shot from England on the volley is palmed away by Roebuck. Chelsea corner delivered by Reiten. Roebuck bobbles it, England takes a whack at it in a crowded field and it whacks Roebuck's chin (ouch!) and she gathers it.
57' Another Chelsea corner for Reiten, into the near post. Cuthbert claims the final touch was from a City player but it's deemed a goal kick.
58' Poor clearance from Berger leads to City possession and Chelsea clear. Foul called on Scott in the scrum in front of goal.
60' City goal. A poor cross from Ingle allows City to control the ball and get it up to Georgia Stanway, who manages to stay onside and has a ton of space. She approaches from the left, and powers the ball past Berger. City 2, Chelsea 1.
61' Roebuck now receiving some treatment. Chelsea will hopefully use this time to regroup.
64' City corner. Mjelde gives orders to the defense, who seem a bit rattled. Corner clipped in, flicked away from Eriksson... City still in possession and work all the way back to Ellie Roebuck.
66' 'nother corner for the home side. Chelsea take possession but not quick enough to overwhelm City's defense. Cuthbert's ball to Kerr is headed behind by Beckie for a CFCW corner.
68' Reiten's corner misses everyone but Chelsea get the ball back AND MAGDA ERIKSSON IS ABLE TO SCORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
68' CHELSEA GOOOOOALLLLLL!!!!! The captain capitalizes on a mistake from Roebuck. Cuthbert sends the ball in, England puts a header over the top and Eriksson dives to slide a header past the City keeper! 2-2 now!!!!
70' Shit. Ingle fouls Weir in the box and City is given a penalty.
71' Weir booked for dragging England down. Free kick flies past everyone.
72' Bachmann (CHE) on for Reiten. Not Guro's best game in blue.
74' BETH ENGLAND FROM DISTAAAANCE!!!! GOOOOOALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!! Ahhhhh!!!!!!!!! Bachmann lays the ball off to our No. 9 and she wallops it in from about 25 yards out! Chelsea take the lead!!!!!!!!!
76' City corner...sigh. Chelsea can't clear and Hemp gets the ball past Berger. City goal. It's now 3-3.
76' Bremer (MCI) on for White.
77' Thorisdottir (CHE) on for Ji
79' Berger gathers the ball after a nervy few minutes in the box.
82' Mjelde takes a corner for Chelsea, Eriksson gets a header but it's high. Come on...
85' England juuuust misses a great cross from Erin Cuthbert.
86' Bright puts herself on the line to win the ball near the City box, it goes to England who makes an honestly awful attempt at goal from her left foot.
87' Injury delay for Bonner who was one of the City players in the middle of Millie Bright's sliding challenge to retain possession.
90' Stanway kicks Eriksson over and Chelsea have a free kick.
90' SEVEN minutes of added time..........
90+1' Spence (CHE) on for Kerr.
90+2' City attack breaks down, Berger gets it upfield but Spence commits a foul near midfield...
90+4' England fouled by Jill Scott, Mjelde swings it in and Roebuck gathers it but she goes down awkwardly and her teammates call for the physios. A little more added time for the added time. Roebuck is going to go off on a stretcher.
90+6' Benameur (MCI) on for Roebuck. Hope she is okay, she's been in the wars today.
90+10' Play will resume as Benameur takes her position between the sticks.
90+11' Chelsea chance cut out...City throw...back for a Chelsea goal kick.
90+12' Eriksson booed by the City support as she carries forward.
90+13' That's the game!


The game was 1-1 at halftime, Chelsea were forced to come from behind twice and then Beth England put us in front, only for Hemp to equalize again just minutes later. Berger saved a City penalty, Chelsea looked a bit frantic at times but come away from The Academy Stadium (where they have yet to win) with a point and the table still stands as is. PHEW. I believe England is now tied with Miedema for top scorer in the league.
Next up is Arsenal in the Continental Cup final. Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday -- we'll see you soon!
