As much as we get spooked by the saber rattling, and shows like “The Day After”, it’s all for show. To keep the MIC fed.
The only way the real thing will happen is if there is an accidental launch on BOTH sides. If there was only an accidental launch on one side, there probably wouldn’t be any revenge launch from the other side.
It would…[Read more]
Listening to WNYC this AM was like listening to Fox News.
Main thrust of Cuomo’s non-apology: “I was just keeping the atmosphere light!” (paraphrased)
Exactly the same as the never-ending repug “I was just joking” non-apology when called on their abuse.
Then one pundit came on and said, paraphrasing again, “We should just move on from this and…[Read more]

Now Silicon Valley (the place, not the show) will try to put AI into IOT devices since, it appears, you can get enormous computing power from just a few chips rather than a (relatively) massive supercomputer.
I have several anecdotal stories of aikido being used to avoid conflict, including my own. I won’t go into the details, but in my case I avoided being mugged on a dark, deserted, street in Brooklyn.

He’s got nothing to lose.
He faces many criminal charges already in the system and stalled because he claims “presidential immunity”. If he loses he’ll have to hire so many lawyers to delay and appeal and stretch things out for years his pitiful “fortune” might get mostly – or all – spent. Add in the nearly 1 billion he owes creditors. Of course…[Read more]

Look to the new FSCOTUS (Fascist SCOTUS) to start handing elections to repukelican losers in more elections than just the presidential one.
Oh, they’ll figure out some “originalist” way to justify it.
If I was Kagan, Sotomayor, or Breyer I would just call in sick for the rest of my life, as their votes won’t matter one bit. They gotta feel as…[Read more]

…. the best ones I found weren’t the technical ones about how much carbon-based energy it will take to build out a solar economy.
The best points were the exposes of how Gore and others were co-opted by the Usual Suspects. “Show Me The Benjamins” always wins, it seems.
As for the technical aspects, I put hope in future technological advances…[Read more]

Gain power, and use it to make more money. Screw anybody you can. If you need to lie, cheat, steal, and kill, do it. If you have to kill your own grandmother to make another penny in profit, it’s worth it.
No great mystery at all.

bonobong replied to the topic The Justices Themselves Can Turn Down the Heat – by Creating Their Own Term Limits in the forum General Discussion 8 months ago
The massive outpouring of attention to RBG is at least partly because the MSM (controlled by TPTB) want to keep divisiveness and idpol at the forefront of public attention.
Divide and conquer is all the idiot criminal PTB know to keep the 99.9% under control. It is easier and cheaper to let 50% fight 50% and keep attention away from the economic…[Read more]

“He doesn’t even care whether he wins or not, I don’t believe.”
He might not know, even after the results are tallied!
Looks uncomfortably close to the caricatures of a particular ethnic group that used to adorn magazine covers in the days of Merrie Olde Mid Century Germany.
One can find similar depictions using a google image search on Der Sturmer.
Unless there is a specific person that is supposed to resemble, it is a disturbing image. Especially after the 180…[Read more]
ThouArtThat, I agree with your point that Greer’s blog puts out valuable points. I’ve said that several times now.
But figuring out the political suasion of a “I’m just a non-political thoughtful pundit” post is important for what they leave out. To that point, I’m not seeing much in Greer’s posts blaming the billionaires. The harm they’ve done…[Read more]
<li style=”text-align: left;”>The world has totally rebuilt from WWII and we are no longer the only industrial country. In fact, we helped create the Chinese manufacturing behemoth since corporations relocated there due to tax breaks and cheaper labor. Now the vast majority of jobs are service jobs & low paying jobs.

My post pointed out that these “I’m just a thoughtful pundit, detached from politics” articles do make good points. And there are many good points in the linked post from Greer. If it was just another “rah rah republicans!” post it’d be ignored or marginalized.
The tell is that sometimes they let their political leanings leak out in their post.…[Read more]
Republican politicians lie???
Did you expect anything less?
They also get no pushback, thanks to the MSM being controlled by TPTB, and the gentle soothing laxative given daily on Fox News to their flock.

It’s too juicy of a wedge issue, to keep their sheep occupied.
What they’re really excited about is raining down “corporations-can-do-no-wrong-and-in-fact-are-entitled-to-make-you-a-slave” decisions.
Which they will.
He is one of the legions of people the right wing has deployed to “gently” move leftists to the center, and to have leftists soften and stop voting (not that voting would change anything anymore, but TPTB have to make sure)
