"Hawaii beach property linked to longtime friend of Obama bypasses coastal protection laws" ... law for you but not for me

"PROUD BOYS ARE BACK, ANTIFA STARTS FIGHTS WITH RIGHT WING PROTESTERS AND LOSE, RIOTS ERUPT ACROSS .." .. LARPing vs LARPing as in Mad Magazine

"SOUTH DAKOTA REJECTS STIMULUS PROVING REPUBLICANS RIGHT AS DEMOCRAT CITIES ARE BURNING" ... Republican governor says no thanks, 80% of their recently unemployed are back at work, so $400 extension of Federal support for state unemployment insurance is unnecessary.

"THE DEMOCRATS ARE SCREWED: EVEN JOE KENNEDY CAN'T GET TRACTION ANYMORE" ... Joe Kennedy, a dynastic liberal, is too “right” for the Democrats now

"Serco are racking in taxpayers money. The CEO is Winston Churchill's grandson Soames, this is DISGRACEFUL.!" ... corruption not just in USA, but in UK.  Serco is a multinational corporation "go to" for all UK government outsourcing.  They are running the "illegal immigrant" business in GB.

"Anyone who can't see both parties are controlled by the same interests must be blind. Blackmail and bribery run countries." ... those who don't learn from history ...

"DEMOCRATS ARE DESTROYING NYC ON PURPOSE, DEBLASIO ADMITS HE'S BUYING UP VACANT PROPERTIES" ... Progressive = slum lord

"A Mass Exodus Away From Big Cities On Both Coasts" ... by moving inland, Democrats will mess up the rest of the country ;-)

"Democratic Party chair wants to end presidential caucuses" ... given that Dem primaries are screwed over by superdelegates ...

"Ex-GOP rep speaking at Dem convention once lobbied Biden office while representing Russia" ... they all take money from Russia/China

"Kamala Harris owes over $1M to vendors from failed presidential bid" ... like Jesse Jackson's failed presidential campaigns, he was burdened a long time with debt.  Maybe if Biden/Harris loses, she can do a "go fund me"?

"Any critical thinking, rational, peace-loving, law-abiding, golden-rule-following citizen of this country must be baffled, disillusioned, angry and depressed by the path being forced upon us by elected and unelected tyrants..." .. bunch of quiche eating liberals

"Soros Warns Europe: "Beware The Leaders Within"" ... if they aren't careful, he will get rid of his stooges and run the EU directly as Der Fuhrer.

Billionaire utopians like Gates, are anti-democratic authoritarians, who will enslave the planet to their own megalomanias.

""Students Claim 'Merit'-Criteria "Possess Inherent Bias"" ... give all the Blacks "A"s

""This War Can't Be Civil": Berkeley Columnist Calls For "Violent Resistance"" ... per columnist Khaled Alqahtani (wonder about his ethnicity)

"'Gun-Toting' St. Louis Lawyers Will Appear At Next Week's Republican National Convention" ... all liberals please donate your home to the nearest felon

"Germany Launches Universal Basic Income Experiment" ... tried in Finland recently, failed because people are deplorable.  Yang in US got no traction on this.  Also, Germany has no money, except for what they have Brussels steal from the rest of the EU (but won't be getting more British money after the end of this year).

Some people are predisposed to wanting something to fail, so they call it a failure, even when it succeeds. So socialism fails, even where it succeeds.  Closing places that spread corona virus fails, even when it succeeds.  "The social experiments of the 1960s proved to be an abject failure" (except for the experiments that improved society).   As with all things, it depends on who you ask, and to what extent we borrow from socially unpopular ideologies, many of which contain worthwhile tools to the betterment of mankind.  Just because something may be a little bad, doesn't make it all bad.  The bad outcomes are usually the result of misuses based on greed and power.  Calling something a failure, because you don't like it is fog brained thinking, although quite popular.  On the other hand cutting aid to the poor is a success, even if that aid ends up exclusively in the pockets of the wealthy.   Jarred Kushner:  "Opening the economy represents a great victory over the corona virus (not my best example, but I love the stupidity of that claim so much, I just needed to put it someplace).  Calling something failure or success because it violates a tenet of an ideology is about as incomplete as an assessment can be.  However, it often looks quite nice on a bumper sticker.

Stockton, CA is trying it.

I think the program (and idea) has legs.  I think it will work.

In which case you have better have supported Yang earlier this year ;-)

I think most people don't want to work for a living, because most people want Daddy Warbucks to adopt them.  Ominously, Little Orphan Annie still has no pupils in her eyes ... reeeee

Bad music, bad sex, bad politics & bad drugs ... I call that losing.  You hippies make me laugh ...



My oldest god-sister took a "hit" during the 60s, abandoned her parents/sister  and joined a commune run by a Wicca queen.  Got pregnant by a random boy, left the commune, kicked out the father of her child, moved far away where nobody knew her, remarried, finally grew up.



When you get past 60, you lose all youthful illusions, if you aren't brain-dead.  Old age can be a bitter thing ;-(

Way too many!  That video reminded me that I must have had (or still have) a fairy godmother watching over me.  I've made some decisions in my life.....................one being drafted into the Army (Nam era) right out of college.  I had already signed up for the next semester so my draft board gave me one more semester.  I decided I'd join a branch that would keep me out of Nam.  So, I talked to all branches--yes, even the Marines (told me how much pride each marine had as all of them were infantrymen--did not even wave, just left quickly).  Army told me they could give me Area Studies which would fit my history degree--study an area, even learning the language and culture.  Yeah--that sounds good.  So, my little mind thought--for another added year (to make 3) I could keep out of Nam and do what sounded really interesting.  So I joined.  The Army.  1968. 

Went to basic after the semester-not fun.  Then on to advanced training in Balitimore, MD, of all places.  My training was 18 weeks and each group had to have 50 men in it to start.  So, I was in casual company for about 4 months.  Not casual; did assigned duties.  I was a prop guy for those undergoing Area Studies training.  Good--yeah?  I learned what I was to become--a spy.  Where was there a need for bunches of spies-- in Nam!  Fuck!  Then my Fairy Godmother kicked in and the Fort commander called me into his office and told me my the next class would not start for another 4 months--would I accept a transfer to a Counter Intelligence class?  Yep, yep, yep!  That was 18 weeks of learning how to catch spies.  Half way thru training I learned that for the last 11 classes, every single soldier was ordered to Nam!  Fuck, fuck, fuckity, fuck!  Wrote my will.  Upon grad. was offered a dream sheet, where from a list of 8 areas/countries
We could pick 3; if possible we would be sent to one of them.  But the prior 11 classes had had the same offer, soooo.........................I chose Japan.  As did 2 others.  All the rest picked Germany.  3 days later learned that all who had picked Germany got it!  The three Japan pickers did not have orders yet.  Updated my will.  Waited a full week--updated my will again.  Then the orders came and all of us got Hawaii. Yeah--Aloha!!  That is as close to Nam as I got.  Yeah, Fairy Godmother came thru.  Lucky.  If, at any time, my orders had come up Nam, I would have been on that plane.  I would have gone.  And I would have died--if not in body, for sure in mind.  Looking back, FG has waved her wand several times.  Fortunate for me.  I have been lucky--and I am grateful to her for that!

Mike Cl,
That was a close one. My father said when he was on the troop transport ship to go fight in Korea they ran into a typhoon. Five thousand guys throwing up breakfast.
