Elton John - Funeral For A Friend (Love Lies Bleeding)

Just because it seems to be Elton John night and this is my favorite song and best live performance of it!




The Koch Brothers Are Losing




Even Red States Can’t Ignore Rising Green Economy

With so many homeowners and businesses making greener energy choices, private utilities — along with big oil, gas, coal, and nuclear companies — see the writing on the wall.

Unlike some other denizens of the fossil-fueled set, this gang isn’t beating oil wells into solar panels, retiring nuclear reactors, or embracing wind and geothermal power. Instead, these guys are trying to coax lawmakers into rigging the rules against increasingly competitive new energy alternatives.

You see, the bulwarks of conventional energy are good at math. And the math is increasingly not in their favor.

Solar panels are growing so affordable, accessible, and popular that sun-powered energy accounted for 74 percent of the nation’s new electric generation capacity in the first three months of this year. Wind power comprised another 20 percent, geothermal 1 percent, and natural gas plus other sources accounted for the final 5 percent.

The Craigslist Killers

A really good read...............


The preacher placed the ad: Wanted: a caretaker for a remote piece of Appalachian farmland. Housing provided. Bring all your own possessions. More than a hundred men applied; four were hired. The preacher and his "nephew" offered each a ride down to the farm. The men never knew what was going on—what bizarre scheme they'd stumbled upon. What happened next was almost too terrible to believe

Putin Planning To Release Evidence Exposing 9/11 As An Inside Job

http://tellmenow.com/2014/05/putin-planning-to-release-evidence-exposing-911-as-an-inside-job/


As tensions between the U.S. and Russia remain at an all time high comparable to that of the Cold War, it seems that strong-armed Putin has had just about enough of Obama’s petty nuisances. Several analysts have recently speculated that to put Obama in his place once and for all, Putin was set to release evidence (i.e. satellite imagery) in his position that revealed the 9/11 terror attacks as an inside job.

These so called “inside jobs” are better known as false-flag attacks in which they were specifically and strategically designed so as to deceive the public into thinking something that isn’t true. In other words, U.S. officials would plan and execute an attack on America and its people that would look as though a certain enemy entity had carried out the atrocity.

Trailer Park Boys

Anybody else watching this series? Funny as hell. Give it a chance, it grows on you, and the characters are really funny!

Stories of Karl Rove being a child molester are untrue

That headline is an example of how you start a rumor which becomes self perpetuating. And Karl Rove is a master at it. It’s a tactic he’s been using his entire career.

His recent attack on Hillary, while ridiculous, will have many wingnuts believing she actually has a brain injury from that fall she took a while back. And it will seep through to those who pay no attention to politics.

We can expect such attacks against Hillary to be launched daily now by Fox “news,” hate radio, and the rest of the Republican propaganda machine. They’re already blaming her for the kidnapping of the girls in Nigeria.

Truth means nothing to Republicans. They will just make up any piece of shit and then use their echo chamber to repeat, repeat, repeat.

We Dems don’t currently have the means to counter their never-ending lies. But we’d better figure out a way pretty damn soon.

Need a like button

one thing I like about facebook is the ability to "like" comments

Not just doing a rec on a thread. But being able to like individual comments down the thread. I find them a lot, don't have time to comment but if we could click like it would perhaps be helpful to let the poster know that his/her ideas are good and perhaps further discussion along that train of thought would be helpful and interesting.

Any chance of getting a like button for comments like on facebook Skinner?
