Fucking hell.

And, here is a bit of "fake news" that has some more sedate and scarier points about the pizza problem. I read a bunch of Podesta emails with key words in them. There is NO doubt in my mind that some of them were just plain coded language for something else entirely than what they were supposed to seem to be about. Yes, a couple of them sounded like a real fundraiser at a pizza joint, but a bunch of them sounded like what we've made of them, and this discussion is not just more of the same... fleshes out the picture somewhat.

He never would have been John Glenn without the Friendship 7, and my dad, one of the men who made it, should have lived to at least age 95, if you are going off heart and brains and spiritual integrity.

I hear he also works his butt off at the gym every single day to stay in shape to caper around and make the gazillions of dollars it takes to support his burgeoning dynasty. I remember when it was hip for young men to say they wanted to fuck Mick Jagger, even though they were heterosexual. Guess I'm trying to say the man has earned his royal prerogatives.

I think it's mostly because he was supposed to have outgrown the directors who love to hire him. If the combination of this and his recent "marriage" debacle do not jog him out of his second childhood crisis, turn him into the aging idol he's supposed to be... what? Maybe brain surgery?

They were miracle workers we've been trained to revile.
It is difficult to look at human rights in Cuba without looking at the context. When Castro took power, it was after 40,000 people had been killed by the Batista dictatorship, when Castro came into power. Civil and political human rights were limited and are limited in Cuba. Social, cultural and economic rights are very good. In Latin American terms, or developing world terms, Cuba has basically got a good record.

If you look at Mexico, for instance, it is far worse. In Mexico, according to Amnesty International, there are 27,000 people who are missing, 103 journalists have been killed, murdered, in the last 15 years and 25 disappeared. Cuba, according to Amnesty, has got 60 political prisoners. So, it is bad, but it is far less than many countries where we are not shining the spotlight.

And of course, 90 miles away from Cuba is the self-declared enemy. Despite Obama’s wonderful initiative, it is important to bear in mind that 10 American presidents vowed to bring about regime change in Cuba. One fact, which isn’t widely known, is that 3,400 Cubans were killed by acts of terrorism in the country, terrorism stemming from southern Florida. To this day, hundreds of thousands of dollars are being funnelled by various branches of the U.S. government to opposition groups to again bring about regime change. So it is difficult to have wide open liberal democracy precisely when you have this track record.

It is not good but in the circumstances, given the fact that the world’s only superpower is only 90 miles away and given the fact that Donald Trump is about to take over, at least it’s comprehensible if not defensible.
I've heard too many supposed lefties trying to find some middle ground to make themselves heard in the general din of spin we're trained to believe, and even if this asshole is calling Ohitlist's initiative "wonderful" at least he's beginning to get at something closer to actual.

only guilty of ego tripping


[click image]


...

Couldn't do manhood, so settled for ego tripping. This is very, very, very common. The City of Oakland is liable for this travesty, and our society is responsible for it. This idiot was guilty only of having ideas he was and is too ignorant to handle... like very many others running around loose out there.

He's been raving in his ego tripping for a long time, playing manly, which is obnoxious as fuck, but not reason to convict him of mass murder when that was clearly not his intent. His intent was to ego trip on providing a living space for as many optionless artists as possible for the rest of his life. Oakland, on the other hand, appears to have been playing Government for all this time, ego tripping on their power instead of doing what they are paid to do.

Each one of the dead was as accountable for this as Derick. If you want him dead, you wanted them dead. They called the place "The Ghost Ship" for fucksakes. Readers of B. Traven will understand. Yeah, yeah, that was 'tude and they didn't want to die, but they were mostly the children of children, a couple of generations worth of purposely dumbed and dependent and debauched Americans. ALL they have, ALL they are capable of manifesting, is biological imperatives and head trips. Lord of the Flies come true.

Outrageous as it seems to me, I can too well believe most of them didn't understand fire hazard enough to notice it. I used to run a Bed & Breakfast in Mendo World. I had to make the fireplace in the honeymoon suite such that all that would be needed to build a fire in there was for the new husband to light a match... because, already, thirty years ago, too many men and women only knew you needed a match to make a fire.

I guess this means some of us old people can take heart in the knowledge that if we survive the asteroid, the others are going to need to listen to us about almost everything in order to keep surviving.

It is ungodly cold at my house. I don't see any snow out there, but all my plotting never to have to turn on my fucking cash-guzzling heater has been for naught. The temperature has managed to rise to a sweltering 44ยบ so far. Rain is about to resume and I'm hoping that it warms the atmosphere somewhat. Just to keep it merely chilly in my house, the heater is running nearly without letup.

As a person experienced with this problem, I can say for dirt certain that the people of Oklahoma have let this go on far, far, far too long. I mean, sooooo far too long that it may not even be the companies' fault anymore.

He didn't care about the people Dubby and Darth were slaughtering. He cared about his party being in the position to do it instead. I've seen too many clips of him stumping for psychopaths now and am hugely disappointed.

Stephen Colbert is dead to me.
