Is there a way to narrow some columns

in order to see the "views" and "recs" in Creative Speculation.

In General Discussion or this site, I can see all the columns because the "groups" column is slightly narrower. Wouldn't be a bad idea to shorten the subject width in some other sites as well.

I use a "Larger" text size with 100% Zoom and on some sites (Windows 7), I can't get the "views" or "recs."

Iran - speculation & very creative

Ancient Aliens (History Channel) had a segment on entirely about Iran. It came about because someone in our government wondered at the ability of Iran to capture one of our drones, and they were suspicious as to how the Iranians had attained this capability.

Now, some in our government have confessed that because of reverse engineering, the US has lots of stuff that put us way ahead of what we were before Roswell. Transistors, for one...Germany was supposed to be advanced because of ufo involvement. And so the government (according to History Channel) is wondering if many countries have crashed ufos that they are back engineering, Iran for one. They spoke about a major flap they had in '76.

I looked it up on the web and there are plenty of articles, pictures of UFOs in Iran. So much for that.

Now, we go to my search for the true religion. I never found it if it exists.

But I did get a huge book with lots of apocryphal books -the Book of Enoch for one. It mentions that 200 "watchers" were placed on earth way back when Adam and Eve were kids, and from them we learned lots of things about medicine, science, ladies makeup, food, etc.., and the things they taught were things that they thought would help us. The folks upstairs didn't like it, and the "watchers" were cast from heaven, or the big spaceship upstairs, fir disobeying orders.

Now, if you're still reading this, which I doubt, these "watchers" didn't necessarily like each other and they started men to wars here and there as proxies in a war with another watcher. Ancient Aliens tells the names of these groups - the only one I remember are Jinns, I think in India. All continents have them and they go by different names, and they start wars over borders, etc., because they don't like each other. They whisper in mens ears (naturally not known to men) and some are malevolent, and some like to play tricks.

After taking all this bullshit into account, I wondered if our talks with Germany, France, Britain, China and Russia are the result of Iran's having weapons that are back-engineered and we want to rein them in. Some of these countries have an open UFO press, unlike us.

One other episode, or maybe the same one, don't remember, says that the UFOs that are seen are looking for the watchers to capture them. I dunno why.

Have fun with this. Sometimes I wonder why this kind of stuff interests me so much. Am I mad? Or perceptive? Or both

Just saw a segment on Frank Sinatra on CBS Morning

and I am struck with a feeling that I have only when I hear Frank Sinatra. He makes all other singers sound mediocre.

I can't shake this nostalgia and love for that voice and his music.

I feel sorry for you if you can't hear what it is that's in that voice when he's singing - so true, so honest, so loving. I am pitifully in love with him.

If you missed the opening of SNL, you missed a lot


Barack Obama gets mad and becomes "The Rock Obma" and throws out Boener, Cotton and Cruz.

The secret agent comes in and tells about somebody in Michele's garden, and she becomes Sherak Obama.

The rock is guest star. Lots of goody details...

Server scrubbed clean

I don't know how or why it was done, but it was done. Foolish decision. There was probably nothing on them that could have hurt more than deleting them.

That couldn't be the end of the matter because whom those emails went to may have them on their computers or servers. "If" there is anything controversial on them, there may be problems ahead.

The folks who received them and still have them will have to be treated with kid gloves. They can either demand bribes to keep the emails confidential, which is extortion, or out of a purer motive, may decide to release their copies of emails knowing they have negative information that could blow up the campaign.

We ain't heard the end of it. Before you know it, Dowdy will be offering rewards for information leading to....you finish.

Nightowls who cant sleep

Put on History Channel:


No repeats tonight. New programs even mention Snowden, the Cloud, Internet, etc., and Ancient Aliens is now on History Channel in stead of H2.

The programs are being repeated since 9 pm I think, and I'm purty sure that the one coming up in about 15-20 minutes is a good one.

They're saying that April 10, 2015, will change history as we know it forever.

Make fun of me, but watching will not cost you anything but a sleepy head tomorrow if you can't tape it.....

Enjoy or not, I toldya about it, my mission is complete.....ta ta ta, ta ta, ta, that's supposed to be the them song from Scully and Mouldler....

Saudi Arabia & Iran & Yemen & Iraq

We are helping the Saudis fight Yemen by giving them information we spied on to help them fight ISIS & AlQuida - and Iran.

We are helping Iran's ground forces fight the insurgents in Iraq with US dropping bombs to help Iran take Tikrik.

Who are the Saudi's fighting in Yemen, I mean, mainly?

Who are the Iranians fighting in Iraq?

Doesn't Syria feel left out.

Lemme see, Sunnis - that would be Saudi Arabia.

S'hia - that would be Iran, and Syria.

Regarding Iran, is it ethical to be both fighting with them and helping the Saudi's fight against them.

Who all are fighting ISIS and AlQuida?

Am going to bed because my head is spinning. Will look to see tomorrow am if anybody has it figured out.

Thanks, and a Happy WWIII to all of us...

Jerry Brown coming on on MTP

So far Meet the Press has been worthwhile, and it promises to be moreso with Jerry Brown coming up - mad as hell about Climate Change.

Will talk about his thoughts about the race in 2016.

Good program so far...

Doncha hate to wake up and put on the news?

It goes from bad to worse. I know people who refuse to watch because it gets them depressed.. It makes me sad but I have a need to know what's going on.

Maybe when the trees get blossoms and the birds are all back from the south it might be pleasant to wake up....the snow is almost gone.

ACA and the Supreme Court

I guess I could look it up, but when everybody here knows but me, it would be a timesaver if somebody would just be nice enough to tell me...

Whatever happened when the Supreme Court was ruling on the ACA case brought by the Republicans? Had to do with (17?) States not having subsidies and the federal government providing them, or something like that. I used to know but it's been so long since the case was discussed I forgot to listen for the ruling. It was supposed to be on a few Saturdays ago, and I missed it, buc I can't understand why MSM hasn't mentioned it.

Thanks a lot...
