Hi some know me, others are not familiar with me, but I do comment at times, and I have bouts where I stay silent and lurk. My health is poor, and shot, and I do look at what I can to see how things are shaping up past my computer, in a double-wide these days, on a hill, in the middle of East Bum-F$%#. Please bear with me, I did warn I am in a biting mood as seen by my most recent comments in some of your essays. I also rarely will pull a punch.
From The New Republic: "A new Canadian pipeline could be "game over" for the climate—and activists are lining up to stop it."
This guy is still on the payroll (let that sink in):
This Is The Big One Folks (IMHO). If all the scammers got was credit card numbers, then new cards could simply be issued. This is different by a long shot. And it ain't going away this year, or next year, or a decade from now. Not useless the dysfunctional US gubmint fixes it by issuing new Social Security numbers to 134 Million people. So no, this cancer is here to stay.
Can we have a check-in as soon as we're able after the storm, so that the community knows we're OK?

Going to be at Rose City Comic Con all day today, and Madison Young's "Reveal All, Fear Nothing" tonight, then back at the Con tomorrow until Noon.
But I'll see everybody there, and look forward to anybody I haven't yet met.
I guess yesterday the New York Times had an article about how Putin pulled off the biggest election upset in history, by creating fake Facebook accounts. I won't link to it, but they say it exists and I have no reason to doubt that.
RT says it's true. Over the course of two years, Putin authorized the purchase 3,000 FB ads for $100,000, pointing to articles that were shared by that stranger who recently friended you. This amounted to 1/10 of 1% of all the FB ads during that time.
From this morning.
Those small yellow pear tomatoes just keep coming. We use them for everything, sauces, stews, salsa, salads, and that's just the s'es.
They are really good though, eat'm like candy.
Whenever one publishes a
revisionist history book that is likely to get the attention of the media as well as the general population, there are various ways to promote the book.
The first one, which is very common, is to leak out inflammatory pages or excerpts for titillative purposes. This works very well with Establishment media and navel gazing types.
The for-profit health care industry spends enormous amounts of time and money trying to convince us that Canada's overwhelmingly popular single-payer health care system (i.e. socialism) is worse than ours.
An off-duty sheriff's officer employed at a local grocery store in Paterson, NJ accused a transgender person of shoplifting and forced the accused to display genitalia.
I need to see what's in your pants.
Bernie backers' attacks on Democrats infuriate the party
Prominent Democrats are increasingly riled by attacks from Bernie Sanders' supporters, whose demands for ideological purity are hurting the party ahead of the 2018 midterms and 2020 presidential election, they say.
This is my first blog entry here at C99. Fingers crossed that the formatting comes out right.
As we've discussed in previous blog entries, the judge in the DNC Fraud Lawsuit (Wilding, et al vs. DNC Services Corporation and Debbie Wasserman Schulz) dismissed the case a few weeks ago, on procedural grounds pertaining to jurisdiction and standing.
Let’s start with this verse from Lewis Carroll:
"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."
The pigs with wings thing is a done deal if you think about Airforce One. The question we seem to be getting closer to an answer for is “why the sea is boiling hot”.
I've been doing a little stoned thinking, and have managed to cobble together a little random experimental philosophy that neatly explains a great deal of why America once held such promise, but now seems to be holding on desperately to the past. It's a thought about what we are and what we desire, and I think it explains a great deal about why people at least in our society, want to start over.
For us to exist, a number of events had to occur:
On Tuesday, Spelman College president Mary Schmidt Campbell announced that the all-women HBCU starting next year will accept all students who "consistently live and self-identify as women, regardless of assignment at birth."
Spelman is located in Atlanta.
This is serious, people. We're fighting Russian Nazis for the future of the republic here and a DNC Chair who can't devote 100% of his energy to the position is unacceptable.
it's a pretty calm moment in politics for Democrats, so the DNC chair is taking a side gig teaching at Brown https://t.co/zmWw2d0Qqf
Reporter: "President Trump, are you going to kill every man, woman and child in North Korea?"
Trump: "We'll see."
Equality California has joined two California residents who wish to serve in the military and a group of transgender service members who are currently serving in a lawsuit filed yesterday against the Trump administration.
