Nowadays there is a fair amount of electronica on YouTube that really helps me with working existence. And this is, as of today Tuesday, the early part of the work week, so I'm in the soup. Some sort of musical accompaniment has to soothe the increasing annoyance I feel that, given the increasing foreboding we feel at the system's ultimate doom, we're still trapped within it!
Coalition confirms BBC exclusive: 3500 IS family members left Raqqa and 250 fighters in ceasefire. Convoy stretched for 8km. Deal agreed by "local partners", coalition says it didn't want anyone to leave. Western officer was present at negotiations but didn't take "active part".
In this remarkable exchange between U.S. Rep Jim Jordan (OH) and Attorney General (in name only) Jeff Sessions, we see Jordan lay out a summary of the specific crimes of collusion committed by FBI and DNC operatives in 2016.
Josh Marshall is a pitiful little hack that keeps hoping that someday he’ll be ‘recognised’ as a journalist. If you read his articles you can see how damn hard he tries to be relevant. It’s never going to happen. No matter how much he tries.
Good news. Bernie is still getting under the skin of the establishment, so he must be doing something right.
How do I know this? Because of headlines like this:
How will Democrats cope if Putin starts playing dirty tricks for Bernie Sanders (again)?
"Purple haze all in my eyes
Don't know if it's day or night
You got me blowin', blowin' my mind
Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?"
"Two top former U.S. intelligence officials said Sunday that President Trump is being “played” by President Vladimir Putin on Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and accused him of being susceptible to foreign leaders who stroke his ego."
I always thought it was about the buds.
Can the grassroots crumble the corporate culture? Roots do break apart rock. This week's edition features some stories of efforts to change the system. As usual we'll look at the whirlwind of news from Alabama to Asia, from Saudi Arabia to Russiagate, from armistice day to veterans day, from war to peace and prosperity, and more....
Today, Veterans Day 2017, is nothing like Veterans Day 1977, forty years ago when I observed my first Veterans Day after getting out of the military.

My name is Strollingone and I am a recovering stupid dupe.
We itemize our medical expenses on our income taxes because our medical costs consistently exceed $20,000 a year. Last year it was $26,000. But the GOP bill will eliminate that deduction which means we will have to dip further into our limited savings.
I make fun of the go team go attitude of dem voters, but I'm guilty too. I unsubscribed to Addicting info and Occupy Democrats not soon after I subscribed to them, because I like to think dems are smart, I couldn't handle that bubble being popped. If you ignore it it doesn't exist was my thinking I guess. Trump is finally doing the right thing for the wrong reasons. The DOJ is attaching conditions to the AT&T Time Warner deal, that include it must sell CNN.
Huffington Post pulled this story. Here it is.
The two sources that originated the allegations claiming that Russia meddled in the 2016 election — without providing convincing evidence — were both paid for by the Democratic National Committee, and in one instance also by the Clinton campaign: the Steele dossier and the CrowdStrike analysis of the DNC servers.

Sweet is the street

plastic feeding cretans of the sea
making hay in rhyme
