...get exactly what we deserve.

Happy Karma, everyone!

When the heads of the IC speak out

First James Clapper (former DNI) went on CNN with this quote during an interview:

I think this past weekend is illustrative of what a great case officer Vladimir Putin is. He knows how to handle an asset, and thatís what heís doing with the president Ö You have to remember Putinís background. Heís a KGB officer. Thatís what they do. They recruit assets. And I think some of that experience and instincts of Putin has come into play here in his managing of a pretty important account for him, if I could use that term, with our president.

Today, John Brennan (former DCI from 2013 to 2017) tweeted this:

Pissing off the national intelligence community has been a fruitful political tactic since the twenty-third of never.

Without apology to St. Dylan of Thomas

I have always thought that Dylan Thomas got it exactly wrong.
So, I have presumed to fix it for him.

========================

Go gentle into that good night,
Old age should not burn and rave at close of day;
Embrace, embrace the dying of the light.

Wise women at their end know dark is right,
Because their words have shone like pearls they
Go gentle into that good night.

Good women, the last wave by, seeing how bright
Their tender deeds have danced in the green bay,
Embrace, embrace the dying of the light.

Wild women who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learned, at last, they loved it on its way,
Go gentle into that good night.

Brave women, near death, who see with splendent sight
Warm eyes could shine like moonlight and be gay,
Embrace, embrace the dying of the light.

And you, my lover, there on the sad, triumphant height,
Bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Go gentle into that good night.
Embrace, embrace the dying of the light.

~for Kathy, of course.

Greedy Babies



In addition, the average American baby will be responsible for the production of about 1,500 tons of CO2, and will generate about 65 tons of solid trash.

This data can lead a reasonable person to only one sensible conclusion.

Abortion is an ecological act.

One abortion will do more good for all the species on this planet than a lifetime of veganism, recycling and driving electric cars.

Three months later, and it all caves in on me.

There aren't any support groups yet for people who have helped their soulmate die.

I used to fly gliders. The one thing I dreaded most was a low level stall-spin. The internal dialogue would go like this:

"God damn it. Fuck. Shit. Center the stick! Apply full rudder against the direction of the spin. Hold it hold it hold it hold it in until the rotation stops. GENTLY ease back the stick to pull out of the dive. Not so hard! You'll rip the fucking wings off. Oh god dear god please let me have enough altitude to pull out. Shit that ground looks close. Shitshitshitshit I sure wish I'd worn a fucking parachute."

Welcome to my evening.

I just saw this comment in a twitter feed. I wondered how it would be seen here.

"Political parties are now irrelevant in America. Youíre either a patriot or a traitor."
