So, who is watching back episodes of Orphan Black as we wait for April 18th?

If you have Comcast, then you'd check in here: http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/watch/Orphan-Black/7064684981656793112/full-episodes#episode=6779150309143397112

If you are a subscriber to BBC America, you can get access to seasons one and two, which our family is enjoying online.

Meanwhile, I sincerely hope that Orphan Black is not over-looked for it's EXCELLENT content and acting. I want it to go beyond it's "3 season arc" writing.

Some leakers are more equal than other leakers, aren't they?

"Thanks, Mr. President! She wasn't going to tell anybody important, anyway!"

UGH - What a disaster!

I was SO looking forward to making what is supposed to be an exceptionally good korma from a long held Classic Indian Cooking book of mine. But, BOY, what a hot mess I made of it.

Now, all I can do is pick out the burnt onions and try to add a separate batch of onions. Breaks my heart.

Royal Braised Vegetables in Cardamom Nut Sauce (Shahi Sabz Korma)

I prepped all ingredients that were carefully chopped uniformly 1/4 inch x 1/4 inch x 1 and 1/4 length (potatoes, turnips, carrot). Where I screwed up was after the initial part, where the same uniformly cut paneer (Indian Cheese) was fried, then set aside. It called me to add the rest of the vegetable oil, and then on "high" fry onions, garlic, ginger root and green chiles for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.

Well, my stove is new (I know I was supposed to post pictures of my new kitchen, but I haven't yet). My burners must put out WAY more on "high", and in a very short time, I singed the MO-FO!

I can't stand it, but I'm much the wiser now. I don't think I'm gonna try this again until the spirit really moves me.

Equal Justice for Petraeus and Snowden?

The sweetheart deal the Justice Department gave to former CIA Director David Petraeus for leaking top secret information compared to the stiff jail sentences other low-level leakers have received under the Obama administration has led to renewed calls for leniency for NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. And no one makes the case better than famed whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg.

Ellsberg, the first person ever charged under the Espionage Act or any other statute for leaking the Pentagon Papers to Congress and 17 newspapers, told me on Thursday: “The factual charges against are not more serious, as violations of the classification regulations and non-disclosure agreements, than those Petraeus has admitted to, which are actually quite spectacular.”

Equal Justice for Petraeus and Snowden?
March 6, 2015

The Justice Department’s decision to let ex-CIA Director Petraeus off with a hand slap for giving his mistress highly sensitive secrets raises questions about the harsh punishments meted out to lower-level leakers/truth-tellers — and the threat of a long prison term for NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, writes Trevor Timm.

Is it me, or can't people distinguish what our government will do to a person's whistle blowing after discovery of unlawful spying programs versus a decorated general who can't keep it in his pants providing his girlfriend top secret information?

What does 5.5% unemployment translate into, Mr. and Mrs. America?

Would you like me to super-size that? How about a side of fries with your order for an extra $1.50?

I see we are supposed to be elated over job growth, but the mall had a shooting by an 18 year old, and 18 year olds and under must be accompanied by an adult on Friday and Saturdays.

What's in the mall?

21 Forever

Theaters playing Sponge Bob, Duff and Disney film coming attractions

More tween stores and young, frustrated people offering tea samples…

Where are we going here?

Games People Play...

You remember that book of the 70's, I'm Okay, You're Okay ?

If not, pick up a copy at the library for a read. In it is an explanation of P - A - C (which is the parent, adult and child roles everyone plays) It's interesting in describing how some people get their kicks by provoking from the "parent" or the "child" a learned expectation, which causes endless argument for argument's sake. These seem to be learned routines that people use JUST to piss each other off. You see it in families everywhere. I'll make example on how it's used on DU…

1) Some awful thing happened, and this innocent person was made to pay the price.

1-a) Oh! Whatever will that innocent person do to recover (insert smile or laugh)

1-a.1) That's a horrible way to see it and devoid of empathy. Here's an example of why (….)

1-a.1-1) How cute you are (smile or hug)

1-a.2) You can't be seriously have this mind set in democratic principled thought

1-a.2-1) You don't tell me what to do. I don't listen to you. Here's a post where I didn't listen the first time (…)

The idea is that sometimes it's so much damned fun to poke a "parental" reaction! It's so much fun being a child in control.

And, I realize that these are games people play in life, which certainly includes DU…

Ramstein Air Base …. Drone HQ

What are the implications that every single drone attack is run out of the HQ of the United States Air Forces in Europe.

Why were they hugely expanded from 2004 to 2006?

Dear Senator Casey...

Hammering away…. Please remind me if this guys DID take campaign finance from the oil and gas industry.



Your response to my e-mail objecting to the Keystone XL pipeline demonstrate poor understanding and advisement on your part to support your vote for it. The reasoning behind your vote consisted of jobs and an adequate safety assessment. This industry, based on your information, has a high benefit to cost ratio. I see NO information supportive of that. Adding to this is real evidence of safety to the environment impact. For example, North Dakota's recent disaster was a 4 inch diameter gathering pipeline in Willingston, ND. This pipeline, just a year after its construction burst and spilled the largest most toxic drilling brine mix which dumped 3 million gallons of toxic bring into the Missouri river. This state had no pipeline inspectors, by the way, even though jobs to inspect these pipelines were vacant.

You CANNOT afford to over-look this unregulated and unsafe industry to our health detriment, can you?

Do your homework while I busy myself seeing what part of the gas and oil industry filled your campaign coffers.

I'm totally pissed off on Casey's response (cross post from Environment and Energy)

Link: http://www.democraticunderground.com/112780960

Basically, because the XL pipeline will be good for jobs and the environmental impact is considered minimal, he votes for it. Of course, he tells me how the amendments (some which were good) which he voted for did not pass. So, I'm supposed to see how this state's D works on behalf of us in the Senate. Not good...
