Going Off The Deep End

At last, the weekend we’ve been working for…

We knew that this was one of those things that Trump would do more rapidly and publicly than Clinton, still it’s a disgrace: FCC Abandons Zero-Rating Investigation and Moves Backward on Net Neutrality.

Fortunately Trump is losing on another front. Not that I’m against immigration bans, what with Climate change about to fuck our food supply, but I just want to stop everybody, I don’t care what imaginary friend they believe in, or the color of their skin.

This over-thinking of Trump, and his lies, is typical of establishment-supporting writing, and so-called “progressive” sites that further their false-narrative (currently about “False News” It’s like a fractal!) It totally makes some sort of BS game of brinkmanship out of the reality that Trump is just a bullshitter, and doesn’t care if what he says is true or not.

No Pink Woolly Caps for Me. “This was a Democratic Party directed march. These were women – and men – who were upset that their candidate didn’t win.” So this.

If you have some spare dosh, do us a favor, and go contribute to the “Chelsea Manning Welcome Home” fund.

Today’s Here It Comes Watch: Monarch butterfly numbers drop by 27 percent in Mexico.

There’s folks out there, fighting for us, even when we don’t know it! Activists Push Back Against FBI’s Worldwide Hacking Operation.

12th Dead Sea Scrolls cave excavated near Qumran!

I’m not against against (safe, Canadian-style) nuclear power, but for the facts that it’s not cost-efficient and is more carbon-intensive to build than wind and solar. So, this comes as (sorta) good news: French nuclear plant fire comes amid industry turmoil.

    Turkey Fights With And Against Everyone In Syria

    Ankara (GPA) – The last few days have seen both renewed commitments between Turkey and their allies to fight terrorism in Syria and Turkish troops and rebels clashing with the same forces they should be working with.

    It’s been a busy week for Turkish President Recep Erdogan. In the past few days, the Turkish leader has
    both reconfirmed his commitments to fighting terror with key allies like Russia and the US and has also had his troops hit accidentally by Russian bombs and move closer to coming up against the Syrian army.

      Isn’t their agenda mostly to kill Kurds?

      • 17

        Yeah, except when they need them. You know, just like the way we’re “fighting” ISIS.

        • towerofbabel

          Exactly. Like the US, Turkey just feels the need to fuck things up a bit. Who knows maybe FREEDOM will emerge.

      I saw an employment posting recently for a weed technician to work in the dispensaries being set up here in Illinois. Now that would look good on the old resume. I wonder if Sessions will start a federal pushback.

      Weed joints are popping up every where back home , it’s ridiculous , more weed shops than 7-11 and McDonald’s . A sign of the times .

    .Elitist Democrats Consider Abandoning Rural America

      That’s why we need the Sheepdog Democrats….eh….I mean the Justice Democrats.

    .Trump pick for ambassador to Israel continues to fund settlement construction in the West Bank

    For years President Donald Trump’s pick for U.S. ambassador to Israel had funneled millions of tax-exempt American dollars into a hardline West Bank settlement through a U.S. charity of which he is the director. Now newly-uncovered documents show his money will continue to pay for settlements in the future.

    • With all his art together like that, it looks like some sort of set from a 1960s episode of Doctor Who. LOL.

      • towerofbabel

        I was touring through the work of various contemporary artists. I have to say, not very inspirational, some of it is down right macabre. I like contemporary art but a lot of it seems gratuitous these days. Probably reflects the general madness going around everywhere. People are fucked up big time–again.

  • In case you thought Trump was imploding…For those of you who may be cocooned in the liberal [willbur: read, “DNC Stooge”] blogosphere, I’m afraid I must administer a cold slap in the face.

    Greetings , comrades . I’m in Ulyanovsk , Russia , arrived in Moscow Tuesday morning … Moscow time . No suitcase , am fairly certain the geniuses at Alaska airlines ( Seattle to New York ) are the culprits . Minus 20 and a lovely gusting wind when I arrived , only a midweight coat fit for Seattle weather and the cloths on my back .No hood , no hat . Naturally … my hooded down coat is in the missing suitcase . There’s a lesson to be learned from this .

    Have been wearing my deceased father in law’s cloths , nice huh ? Just what I did not need to have happen . It’s Saturday night here , still nothing on my luggage … seems that my suitcase has majically disappeared ! My luck of late … should have expected this .

    Anyway , I’m still alive and have not gotten pneumonia .! Lots of snow here , 3 feet or so.Hope you guys are doing well . More later.

    • oodaloop
