A Bad Week

As usual John Oliver puts it in perspective (yes, I am away, don’t you recognize the sucky blogging?).   You are being judged. You’re a racist and you just outed yourself on National TV. I’d be crying too.

Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei

I almost think Trump could have gotten away with it if it hadn’t been for the Nazis. There are a lot of Bigots, Racists, and Misogynists in this country and, you know, they actually agree that Blacks, Latinos, Women, LGBT people, Jews are inferior and it’s ok to persecute and discriminate against them. It’s not …

Eclipse

There is no dark side of the Moon really. As a matter of fact it’s all dark. Astronomical events are rarely as spectacular as you imagine. For one thing they happen very, very slooowly, so you have to have a lot of patience. Another thing is that atmospheric conditions are seldom ideal, there’s a reason …

Sucky Blogging- I’m not kidding.

Today and Friday I will be traveling. In between I’ll be without my portable desktop (too heavy, too busy). Normally I’d just ask TMC to cover for me, but she has her own obligations and will probably be no more productive than I. BobbyK contributes on occasion however he works double shifts and I’m not …

Note that the legislators proposing these bills are all Republicans. The Republicans who want to legalize running over protesters By Catherine Rampell, Washington Post August 17, 2017 This year, Republican …

Neo Liberalism and the Ascendancy of Markets Over Humanity

Neoliberalism: the idea that swallowed the world By Stephen Metcalf, The Guardian Friday 18 August 2017 That Hayek is considered the grandfather of neoliberalism – a style of thought that reduces everything to economics – is a little ironic given that he was such a mediocre economist. He was just a young, obscure Viennese technocrat …

It’s not TV, it’s HBO!

VICE is kind of HBO’s version of 60 Minutes and because I’ve never had HBO I was unaware of it until recently. It being HBO they cover topics like Donkey Sex (no, I didn’t watch it, ick) but because of the second piece I’m going to highlight on Charlottesville (which has made the rounds on …

The New Berlin Wall

Who ever thought they would be living in a “Homeland”? I suspect not many World War II vets. Proposed Law Would Turn US Borders Into Unblinking Eyes With A Thirst For Human DNA by Tim Cushing, Tech Dirt Wed, Aug 16th 2017 Some senators are looking to turn US borders into the equivalent of London: …
