About that Syrian "Civil War"...

I'm sure you are all aware of the brave struggles of desperate freedom fighters in Syria who toil to free themselves from the grasp of that evil dictator Assad.

"State Stores" - an OP I wrote in 1997. Still completely accurate.

Teaser for visibility:

Twenty years ago we used to mock the Communists for their dreary
"State Electrical Goods Store #12". Now we go to dreary category
killer stores like Home Depot, which make the old Russian
stuff look mom-and-pop size.

Twitter Bans RT and Sputnik Ads - McCarthyist Assault on #AltMedia Continues

Can't say I'm surprised by this one bit.

Twitter Inc on Thursday banned advertisements from accounts owned by Russian media outlets Russia Today (RT) and Sputnik, citing allegations by U.S. intelligence agencies that the outlets tried to interfere with the 2016 U.S. election. [..]

Election-meddling is “not something we want on Twitter,” the San Francisco-based social network said in an unsigned statement.

Move over Creationists, a "leftie" professor will top your act! It's fun with numbers.

1 + 1 = 2; 2 + 2 = 4; 3 + 2 = 5.

That's mathematics (rudimentary in the example) which is known as "the pure science" because it does not deal with actual objects although it is regularly applied to objective things, like gravity, or astrophysics or even those computer things that often plague us.

This is a comment I made earlier in response to Strife Deliver essay.
It is below standard for an essay, but I hope to hear from c99 on this topic.

If 1% of the 80 million screwed-over workers would answer, we could shut down parts of system for short time.

Rule by the Rich

Damn, could it be more obvious? What is it with humans?

I've been railing against rule by the rich for some time now. That is THE problem, that and our pathetic political systems that allow them to rule us. Everyone knows it, everyone has always known it, most everyone anyway. It's everywhere with this global capitalist greedfest occurring right in front of our broke little eyes.
