Liberals must not say: "liberal," "left," "progressive" or "populist."

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.

Trump Administration WARNS they will Blow up the Planet

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."

CIA's new target--brain hacking, part 2, rationale

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.

The International Women Day

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.

Evil descended on Austin

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.

. . . 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.

Young and transgender

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.
