"It Was Eight Years Ago Today, Occupy Taught Us How To Think"

Greetings C99 family. Haven’t been around in a while, but that’s too long to get into now.

This is gonna be quick, but the date kind of commands something is published. Not much for anniversaries myself but as I sat for breakfast with the little ones this morning WBAI had a segment on in which they were talking to people about OWS. Sept 17th, why of course! (I can hardly keep track of what day of the week it is anymore, let alone the date).

more on the bombing of the Saudi aramco oil processing field

This image provided on Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019, by the U.S. government and DigitalGlobe and annotated by the source, shows damage to the infrastructure at Saudi Aramco’s Abaqaiq oil processing facility in Buqyaq, Saudi Arabia. (click for larger)

Given that gjonsit’s thread from Sept. 15 is still continuing, it may not be necessary to put this up, but I thought I could add a few bits, and you’ll add more.  Needless to say, Iran is getting all the evidence-free blame, Houthi claims of being the authors of the swarm of precision hits notwithstanding, nor are other possibilities. 

Tuesday Open Thread ~ The Culinary Challenge

“If you want to find the real competition, just look in the mirror. After awhile you'll see your rivals scrambling for second place.” ~ Criss Jami

Good Morning!

Welcome to Tuesday's Open Thread. How are you all doing today? The month of September is a lean month for Trader Joe's crew members at Store #177. Why? Well, on September 1st, our manager initiated a “Biggest Loser” contest at our store along with a $500 kitty as incentive. As for my fellow competitors, let me tell you, these guys are playing to win. Ice cream, doughnuts, and fried chicken showed up in the break room, anonymously, during the first week of the competition, followed by some smack talk about which one of us would not last till the end. You know what I say? Bring. It. On.

DNC releases slowly acting viral process for which there is no cure--ExiTULSI

Medical convention is that the disease discoverer has the absolute right to name an illness after him or her or their selves. Thus, having discovered a new virus, which has been hiding in plain sight, it should be prudent to describe to those who may yet be contaminated by Clintonian Concepts its method of disease including epidemiology (i.e., how it spreads), nature of disruptive agent (e.g., what type of critter is it), and how it develops over time (pathophysiology).

Tulsi has more to say to Trump about Saudi Arabia

A rare feel-good story from Somalia

When it comes to World Cup soccer, Somalia is an after thought.
Somalia is ranked 202 of 211 football nations — 90 places below Zimbabwe in the latest world rankings.
It's been 35 years since Somalia’s last qualifying win, and 10 years since the last victory of any kind. Somalia had lost 27 matches in a row.
That's why last week's game is such a shock.
