I don't get up early enough to get a jump on the Bigot-in-Chief. That would not happen even if I lived on the East Coast instead of here in Southern California.
I am prepared for outrage promulgated by this essay. Let it come--but do so in a rational fashion, which may be considered rationally. Now this subject may be a bit more intricate in practice than in theory, as I will explain.
We have a Constitution of the United States which forbids the mingling of Church and State (beware of Cruz and Pence). This essay is not anti-religious. After all, I am a devout pastafarian, wishing no one harm.
Millennials are the absolute worst! Amirite?
I wasn't certain of this fact until I looked around the web. It turns out that there is no shortage of Baby Boomers who can prove beyond a doubt that millennials are lazy, entitled brats.
Allow me to list a sampling.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz's IT staffer, Imran Awan was arrested this afternoon at the Dulles Airport while trying to flee the country. Awan, his two brothers along with two wives and another Pakistani, have been under investigation by the Capitol Police since February. The Awans worked for twenty Democrats in the House since 2008 or thereabouts. Most House Reps fired them upon learning of the investigation, but Wasserman Schultz kep Imran Awan on her payroll until now.
Stephanie Martinez is a transgender activist in Austin, TX. She met Rayshad Deloach in an online chat room. Deloach said he was interested in learning about transgender people/issues.
This is not unusual by itself. We must educate our fellow citizens about who we are in order to establish our niche in society. That's pretty much why I do what I do.
As I outlined in a previous post (https://caucus99percent.com/content/what%E2%80%99s-left-russiagate-%E2%8...), forensic analyses of the DNC material posted by "Guccifer 2.0", conducted by Adam Carter and an anonymous entity calling itself "the Forensicator", have indicated that "Guccifer 2.0" downloaded his subsequently leaked material via USB drive or local connection to t
Gah. We have been doing our usual deal camping in Africa for a couple of months etc since April and only checking in from time to time, but when we do we are astounded at the attacks on all we hold dear by the current gov, the duopoly, and Mr. Trump.
This afternoon, instead of being out getting in some exercise further exploring old Venetia we got roped into reading C99 and other news.
The lead story over at Salon, right at the top of the page:
It's Time To Decide: Trump's Presidency Is The Fault Of The American People.
Because the Democratic Party can never fail. They can only be failed.
The tens of millions Americans who stayed home on Election Day and chose to not vote against Donald Trump made this national calamity possible.
No self-respecting member of the left would sound like Trump, right?. So, if Trump expresses a sentiment that those on the left have been expressing, members of the left must cease expressing that sentiment in order to (a) not sound like Trump and (b) mock Trump for saying things members of the left have been saying for years, maybe for decades.
is not that Will Menaker told the Clintonites they had to "bend the knee." It's the idea that we could ever work with those people again. Those people being the ones who *run* the neoliberal side of the party: politicians, pundits and their donors/employers. The people who did this:
and then this:
Democratic Senators Al Franken, Nancy Pelosi, and Charles Schumer look on as the
Senate Judiciary Committee issues new subpoenas in the Russian election meddling investigation.
Chuck Schumer had a public eleventh-hour epiphany:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sent a thinly veiled message to Hillary Clinton, saying that “you blame yourself” if you “lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity.” Schumer never explicitly mentioned Clinton but there was little doubt who he was talking about while discussing the broad effort by the Democratic Party to come up with a new messaging strategy ahead of next year’s midterm elections.
“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” Schumer said in an interview with the Washington Post.
I don't listen to podcasts, but I do keep a lookout for those who stick their fingers in the eyes of the political establishment. That's why this article denouncing Chapo Trap House brought them to my attention.
On Friday New Jersey's waning Gov. Chris Christie signed two bills protecting transgender residents of the Garden State.
A4652 prevents school districts from forcing transgender students to use facilities that correspond to their birth sex rather than gender identity.
American Arrogance is Based on Exceptional Ignorance
Working from the base of the brain stem, the tribal chant of we're number one is all it takes to convince most citizens the US is GREAT. A misleading and profit serving corporate media does its share to maintain the illusion. But what is so great about us? We certainly create great violence and mayhem around the world. We work hard to destroy nature in order to extract and pollute...and woe be unto the country that opposes our corporate misuse of people and planet...because we worship the God of profit.
Don't worry, this article will not be filled with wonderful mathematic formulas, but is to be inferred in a perhaps allegorical way.
The other week I asked Can you spot the common theme?
Only Meteor Man guessed it right.
Now is your chance to join Meteor Man in the coveted Winner's Circle. You too can become the object of envy, admiration, and desire by the opposite sex.
Let play: Can you spot the common theme?
After viewing its performance at the MAKS 2017 Moscow Air Show the generals took note that the latest Russian fighter jet appears to be incapable of straight forward flight unlike the Lockheed Martin F-35. One general stated, "At 1/3rd the cost of the F-35, I suppose you get what you pay for. The Russians are obviously now so far behind they will never catch up to our advanced technological expertise."
With the US House acting like the Texas Senate and the Texas Senate moving like they can't punish transgender people fast enough for daring to exist, I just had to go looking for something a bit more positive.
Most of the left, not to mention the right, are falling again for the false narratives, lies and propaganda coming from our government, the Trump regime, and the oligarchy owned and controlled media regarding the supposed ceasefire in Syria, agreements with Russia and Trump's decisions and actions in "fighting terrorism".
No wonder the antiwar movement is almost dead during a period of unprecedented war.
