I feel like I am in a cross between "All The President's Men"

and "Rocky and Bullwinkle."
This would be a helluva miniseries. I did not want any part in this though.

I threatened friends and family with my Mama's ghost if they denied science. lol

This has devolved. They seem to be in a cult and need deprogramming.

My Mama and the climate
If any of you who knew my Mama or were taught by her are thinking or saying climate change is fiction, she might just rise from the grave and get you. She did not suffer stupid people except for me at times. She would be giving all of you her type of hell.

I went to school with some of you and were in the same classes at times. You got a decent education in science. You are not stupid people or sheep. The evidence is out there in so many forms that the climate is changing rapidly that you have to willfully ignore it.

'Climate change as a myth' is being pushed by people with monetary interests in fossil fuels and in businesses that pollute the air. Yeah, I know . Get rid of those job-killing regulations. Go ahead. Before you do then look at China and India to see what's coming. Do you want decent air for yourself and especially your children? Clean water? If you think the battle over oil is something, the fight over water will dwarf it.

There is one point that those who dismiss climate change hang on to. It is that the climate has always changed. File that under NSS! The written historical record alone bears evidence of that in stories. Science has advanced the ability to measure previous change and the changes now. Yes SCIENCE. You can ignore it but that will not make it false. It's the RATE of change that man has caused that is concerning. They use this to dismiss any talk of climate change as just a regular occurrence.

In addition, we deforestation is a problem. Look up PHOTOSYNTHESIS. Plants absorb carbon dioxide which helps with the temperature.

So to sum up, Mama is on her way for all you people who know better but continue to deny facts just because you don't like them. Enjoy it. She might not leave for a while.

Explaining the madness: Game theory and the long con.

@Ericgarland has a thread about what has been happening. I believe he has nailed a lot of it. Everybody got played. Only one way out. Go through 'battle' with a fight.
Well worth your time.

Here is a link to his tweets in storify form:

Wanda Sykes on Trump:

How can Trump get top secret security clearance with so much debt? He can be compromised. I bought a stereo and almost blew my clearance.

Ya know?

Cory Booker tweet. Answering a person depressed by the silence about Russia, etc.

Sorry you feel that way. But stay tuned. As the new Congress begins and confirmation hearings begin the fight will intensify.

Fuck this shit! Hearings are all well and good, but they need to be out there NOW loudly stating the case and framing the issue. Make people HEAR them!
Make ads but for gawd's sake, DON'T WAIT!

2 Million Dollars

That is the cost to the City of Florence, SC alone to clean up the debris from Hurricane Matthew.

If you drive down many streets, you see piles of huge logs in front of many houses. They look like forts. Every street seems to have varying sizes of piles of leaves and logs in front of a lot of places.
The city has been working constantly since the hurricane to clean this up. They have been trying to do this efficiently without busting the bank.

I have read and heard a lot about this and they seem to be doing a good job. It is a Herculean task.

Corker, McCain, Graham

These are the 3 people speaking out about Russia and wanting to take action.
Damn them for all their prior actions and I do, but who else is stepping up now to join them?

You can cast doubt on their reasons but taking this position is not without risk to them. They do not represent people who dislike Trump.

These are not the heroes we need but for now they seem to be all we have. That should scare the shit out of you.

Bertolucci Admits He Conspired to Shoot a Non-Consensual Rape Scene in 'Last Tango in Paris'

CONTENT NOTICE: This article contains disturbing stories of rape and assault.
It's known as one of the most infamous rape scenes in Hollywood history—but Last Tango in Paris director Bernardo Bertolucci admitted in a recently surfaced video that star Maria Schneider never consented to it.

Instead, Bertolucci confessed in the 2013 clip that he and Marlon Brando came up with the idea to shoot the assault scene in which Brando's character uses a stick of butter to rape Schneider on screen. At the time, Brando was 48. Schneider was just 19.

Evil! Just plain evil!

I WILL call Trump voters racists.

I have read not to call them this or use other terms because they become defensive. However, I have found that a lot of my former friends and disowned relatives don't listen. No matter what I point out, they don't care or they rationalize it. However, if I call them racists many of them take great offense.
They listen.

I don't use the term because I don't mean it. I do. I use it to point out the vile people they are uniting with and the fact that they cannot get rid of this stain no matter what they say. They opened Pandora's Box all the way and out flew indelible ink with every evil.

I also point out that NOT ONE of them ever said a word about those vile people. They whine now but only after they are linked with them. I also tell the 'Christian' ones that they are really Leviticans who use Jesus as a hype man. In addition, if Egypt had had a wall, Jesus, Mary and Joseph would have been SOL with Herod after them.

Finally, I quote a revised version of a verse in the Bible that Jesus used when chasing the big money out of the temples; "Bite me!"
