At long last, I simply do not care

I've come to the conclusion that the corner of the internet into which I have been shoved is the practical equivalent of a fantasy role playing game. That is, my impact on politics in the real world from posting here (and c99p is the best) is about the equal of the impact I would have playing Fortnite. That is, zero. This lack of impact has been caused by the purchase and consolidation of both news outlets and political parties by the billionaire class.

House intelligence chair announces sweeping investigation into Trump's finances and Russia

Oh look, it’s the guy under investigation for leaks starting another round of wasteful bullshit investigations just so this rotten lying chickenshit can keep his face in front of the cameras. And this has NOTHING to do with RUSSIA and everything to do with trying to bring down Trump.

What the coming end of Dollar Hegemony means

Less than a week ago I posted an essay about the rapidly approaching end of dollar hegemony, but I didn't spend much time talking about its implications. It turns out that I was only a couple days ahead of the curve. Far better writers than I, such as Chris Hedges, have explored the topic in the past couple days.

Snow and PDX Meetup Poll

The weather people are forecasting significant snow this coming weekend for NW Oregon and SW Washington. The meetup is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 10 at 1:00 pm. Timing of snowstorm seems to be in question, the only solid part being over the weekend.

Do we need to postpone the meetup? What say you? Respond please.

I have a medical appointment this morning, but will be back later.

You think I would find a full video of just the SOTU speech

but I am searching now for 30 frigging minutes and all I get is bunches of smiling representatives eager to get into the camera's angle to have their faces shown off. The theater of the SOTU speech is getting on my nerves. Who cares who is escorting whom?

Anyone has a video of just the speech and nothing else, but in full and uncut and nothing else after or before the speech?

Two faces of Kamala Harris

I have written at least three essays on the subject of the Camel, with which I will not bother you. However my intense distaste for her, like with HRC, has only grown with time. Now that she flashed her gams on the Hampton Boardwalk, getting approving nods and ogles, she sincerely believes that she is of presidential material, as was of course John Buchanan.

Clinton, Comey, Holder targeted by GOP bill for lying to Congress

Oh my, the worms are turning. And the sad part is that they are right. Dims got caught lying in emails, news interviews (some were leaks), and to Congress and no one said or did anything. And they’re still out there spreading lies. I hope this takes off and they do get indicted. They’re some of the dirtiest politicians that have ever inflicted themselves on this poor, messed up country.
