Commenter more than essayist

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.

Equifax Data Breach - Banking Cancer

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.

RT Responds to NYT Election Interference Article

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.

Is Clinton Trying to Impugn the Integrity of a Dead Sanders Supporter? (updated)

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.

(WTF?? Get us in 'line':) Bernie backers' attacks on Democrats infuriate the party

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.

Notice of Appeal Filed in DNC Fraud Lawsuit

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 talk about the weather

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”.

The desire to start over.

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.

Trump Cut Deal with Dems? Yes, he did & more may be in the works

Remember that old song lyric, "call me unpredictable" from the Sinatra classic "Call me Irresponsible?" It looks like today the Republicans may be calling Trump both, and lots of other names for working out a debt ceiling deal with Pelosi and Schumer without GOP input:


DNC Chair is a full time job!

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.
