Great little video from The Humanist Report about Tom Perez having no clue what he's doing.
While a person pays very close attention to legislative shenanigans happening in one state, stuff is going down in another.
This morning, while I was still asleep in California, Republicans in New Hampshire were determined to maintain their exclusivity as the only state in New England to keep transgender people subject to discrimination.
Perez, Ellison embark on unity tour
New Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez and Deputy Chair Keith Ellison are taking their buddy show on the road.
First, of course, liberals must not say "liberals." (Duu-uuh!) Remember the BCTYAI (Big Club That You Ain't In), including, of course, the PPC (Politician Pundit Complex)? Well, the BCTYAI launched an attack on "loony," "moonbat" liberals (as distinguished from "pragmatic" liberals). That Luntz-like maneuver seemed relatively effective: In the U.S., which is more conservative in some ways than many other nations, "liberal" became a slur word.
It’s not only me that is going nuts with the lack of urgency regarding climate change. More and more it’s the only thing I think about. And that thinking, as you can imagine, is mostly dread.
Trump's U.N. Ambassador, Nikki Haley, is proving to be every bit the rabid warmonger Samantha Power was/is. Trump is proving to be every bit the Imperialist his predecessors were. "Make America Great Again". Wasn't that a clue? I thought it was.
"The United States has said "all options are on the table" to deal with North Korea."
In Brain hacking, part 1, I pointed out some of the technology, with lots more technology to be discussed, so that you may see how close to reality this idea is. The technology exists and just needs refinement. Don't doubt for a moment that the CIA is working on it.
The core of part 1 is based upon mind-to-mind communication.
I'm going to talk about something very painful to me. I've had the need to write about this for a long time. And the tears are aleady flowing.
It's about my mom. Doris Oleana Munniks. She died on November 30, 1989.
Every Womens Day jabs at me to tell her story.
She was, without doubt, one of the first modern day feminist. Born in a hollow in the back country of Appalachia. West by God Virginia. As was I.
That is something everyone can agree on. Just exactly what that evil was is what we disagree on.
This morning SB 6, which is HB 2 reincarnated and beamed over from North Carolina, was passed by the Texas Senate Affairs Committee by a vote on 8-1. That followed testimony on Tuesday of over 250 people which lasted more than 13 hours. There were 253 witnesses who testified against SB6 and 29 who testified in favor of it.
Remember the Tea Party of 2010?
Their defining feature in my mind was their crazy conspiracy theories.
Recall that Obama was a Kenyan, Communist Muslim (among other crazy stuff).
But their paranoid delusions went far, far beyond that.
The betrayal. It was, which is why so many people are so pissed at the Clintons and Democrats
It is already past evening for most of the women in our world.
Most of our women, along with their family and friends, struggle to survive as the "wretched of the earth" and do not know anything about who is or is not entitled to use which bathroom.
It's election day here in Los Angeles. Hence I've found something brief to post while I go out to do my civic duty and perform my necessary chores.
. . . Wikileaks has brought forth the first of multiple installments of alleged CIA documents (which all have so far indicated look to be the real thing), detailing the ways that the U.S. is spying upon others and upon its own citizens.
I hate the narrative that "the people" elected Donald Trump because they were tired of the status quo, that those who voted for him were those most affected by the jobs leaving the country, the white poor from the rust belt and rural areas, the "working class", the "99%".
When I wrote yesterday about a transgender child who was being mistreated by a Chicago-area hospital, I was not surprised to encounter a comment questioning the reality of young transgender children. It is a not-infrequent occurrence.
People who are not transgender have a difficult time understanding an issue that is so far from their own existence. That's why people who are different have such a hard time trying to fit into our society.
