My diary on electronica

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!

U.S. Coalition in Syria struck a deal with ISIS

(A DNC/Obama/Clinton propagandist has a sad): It’s Getting Bad Folks

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.

As the World Turns, the Big Picture gets Lost in the Haze

"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."

Grassroots?

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....

Hypocrisy on the Left - Daily Kos Maxim, If You Vote for the Democratic Party, You're okay with Illegal Wars and Murder

“The people in charge can always justify doing terrible things in the name of the greater good. A slaughter here, a little torture there. It becomes moral to do things that would be immoral if an ordinary individual did ’em.” - Joe Hill, The Fireman

GOP Tax Reform Bill Wants Me Bankrupt and Dead - Eliminates Deductions for Medical Costs

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.

You can't make this shit up folks.

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.

The 'russiagate' article Huffpost didn't want you to read.

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. Think about that for a minute.

Inside v. Outside is a false choice.

True political movements transcend mere party affiliation.

If you feel the best use of your time and talents is to work inside the Democratic party to further Progressive policies, more power to you.

A vignette


Sweet is the street

walking in sunshine

skipping on four rollers

snowboarding beyond boarders

breathing octagon crystals

inhalations

gasping to be


Drowned by the gullies

rushing in silt

smothering fish

flooding the news

food delivered, to the door,

in paper

wax

before its time

plastic feeding cretans of the sea

making hay in rhyme
