    Hey this is random and unrelated, but your comment from a year ago solved a problem I had for several hours that was driving me insane. Thanks so much, you're an awesome person.

    I think it's interesting that he's reading the newspaper. You just don't see very many people doing that these days.

    [–] No Emergency Alerts or Settings? vrxz 1 points ago in galaxys4

    Sorry! Be sure to look through all those settings as it might be there. Might also be hidden in another menu then, if at all. Perhaps look at other Samsung Galaxys or generic Android as guides since it might be similar. Good luck.

    [–] No Emergency Alerts or Settings? vrxz 1 points ago in galaxys4

    Go into app drawer, find default Samsung messages application, launch it (you can ignore prompt to set as default if it's not your default messages app). Go into app settings --> emergency alerts

    The recording, which was provided to CNN by Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis, was made in September 2016.

    Edit: Trump right now: "sigh I got the worst fucking attorneys."

    "Trump says X have agreed to Y"

    Just like he said about Carrier saving the jobs, or Kim dismantling his nukes? Does anyone actually take him at his word anymore, especially when he tries to put them in other peoples' mouths?

    You're not wrong. At least with a place like Chick-fil-A and their LGBT-hate there's an actual ethical dilemma presented because the food is goddamn tasty.

    Papa Johns is just gross though.

    Honestly, I think there isn't enough outrage. No need to hit the brakes on this, we need as much anger and enthusiasm as we can get

    [–] Kavanaugh is radically conservative. Here’s the data to prove it. vrxz 4 points ago in politics

    We have to stop thinking we can't win. Unlikely, sure, but not impossible. No reason to not protest and raise hell especially since it will rile up Democrats and get them motivated to vote and potentially retake the Senate this year.

    [–] Kavanaugh is radically conservative. Here’s the data to prove it. vrxz 12 points ago in politics

    I like your post and part of me agrees. But the other part of me says that quiet acceptance has been a losing strategy for Democrats for years. We have to stop picking and choosing fights based on a political calculation and start pushing back whenever something obviously wrong is happening.

    When Democrats last had a supermajority it looked like Republicans had no chance at stopping them from passing strong healthcare reform with popular support. But they raised holy hell, had tea party protests, refused to cooperate whatsoever and moved the Overton window so much that public opinion turned sour. They even got a Republican senator elected in Massachusetts, a sign of the red backlash to come later on. That and Independent Senator Joseph Lieberman killing the public option forced Obama to sign a bill that was watered down from what was originally envisioned. And we all saw the massive GOP gains in the 2010 midterms.

    My gut tells me that we should oppose Kavanaugh with everything we have. Maybe we get the votes to stop him, maybe we don't. But getting Democrat voters riled up over this would actually help us take the Senate this year, something we desperately need to do.

    [–] Kavanaugh is radically conservative. Here’s the data to prove it. vrxz 89 points ago in politics

    Fuck Mitch McConnell. Each time obstructs his opponents and erodes our norms, he sinks our republic a little deeper into darkness. He more than anyone is responsible for the chaos we are seeing right now in Washington. What's worse is some people will even buy his lies to cover up the massive hypocrisy.

    Barely an hour after Justice Antonin Scalia died in February 2016, McConnell issued a statement vowing to block any Obama replacement ― an unprecedented level of obstruction aimed at a sitting president.

    McConnell, now:

    “We should evaluate this president’s nominee fairly, based on their qualifications. And we should treat this process with the respect and the dignity that it deserves.”

    Source

    Mitch McConnell refused to give Merrick Garland a hearing, preventing the Senate from fulfilling its constitutional duty to "advise and consent" and thereby stole a Supreme Court seat. Mitch McConnell refused to join in a bipartisan rebuke of Russian election interference after Obama requested it. He gutted health insurance coverage for millions, and then gave the richest huge permanent tax cuts by driving up the debt and abandoning regular order to evade the filibuster. He privately and publicly brags about his shameful actions as shrewd political chess moves. And now he is fake-crying at the suggestion that Democrats should fight back against Kavanaugh.

    Enough is enough. None of this is normal or okay and will only get worse until Democrats grow a spine. Schumer, Pelosi, and the rest of the Democrats need to take a firm stand on principle instead of some tepid political calculation aimed to satisfy the base while appeasing the moderates. Do what's actually right for the country and use every tool at your disposal, even if you think you might lose. If they do that, they will increase turnout to never before seen levels and actually win.

    I don't care if Kavanaugh is a nice guy who coaches kids baseball and has "an open legal mind", he is still a hard-right conservative that will tip the balance of the court for untold years to come. Does anyone really think after Bush v. Gore that SCOTUS judges aren't heavily partisan and won't protect the vital interests of the party that aligns with them when it truly matters? Kavanaugh was a political operative heavily involved in the Starr Report, but now he has no problem being nominated by a corrupt President who fired the FBI director investigating him over potential treason?

    We all know that the judicial confirmation hearings are political theater full of artful deflection and non-answers at this point. Nominees will conveniently never take a position on Roe, campaign finance, gerrymandering, net neutrality or anything really. They have been perfectly selected and groomed for the process, all their previous opinions conveniently don't reveal their direct thoughts on the big issues. And yet, anyone with a brain knows where they truly stand. That's why the Federalist Society puts out a list of their approved judges.

    I don't care if Murkowski and Collins close ranks with the GOP and unanimously confirm Kavanaugh. Democrats should still be screaming at the top of their lungs and grind the business of the Senate to a halt over this unprecedented constitutional fuckery. Honest, moral outrage at what is taking place is the only thing that will wake up disengaged Americans and turn them out to vote in droves.

    The GOP stopped playing by the "norms" a long time ago, it's time to get on their level or concede the midterms.

    [–] Looking for witnesses for the physical assault on AT&T worker in Saturday vrxz 13 points ago in Dallas

    Sam Rayburn Tollway (SRT) is the same road as 121 in that area. SRT is the controlled access part of the highway (on/off ramps and no stoplights) and 121 is the frontage road (with stoplights for crossroads) To even get on that overpass where I saw a stopped truck, a vehicle would have had to pass through a NTTA tolltag sensor/license plate camera.

    Maybe try posting on /r/plano too.

    If that white Lexus was traveling on Sam Rayburn Tollway at any point during the day, NTTA might have a record of it. Dunno if it's possible for police to get that info but seems like it would be useful.

    That's awful, sorry to hear this happened and I really hope the perpetrator is brought to justice.

    I do remember seeing a truck on the shoulder with cones around 7:45 pm on this overpass. Sadly I was not there at the right time to be a helpful witness.
