Disinformation in the USA it's not "JUST" a Russian thang https://t.co/42lvjR1Vue Just saying. (no am not a fan of any dummy who supported or still supports Drumpf) I am sick of all of this BS about Russia when No one mentions anything about how the DNC screwed Bernie to try to force sHillary Rotten Republican Clinton down our throats. Our democracy is FULL of disinformation - it's how any disinformation gets traction = fuck with the audience until they have no idea what is real.

If the republican Gerrymandered hold can be broken so that a real working majority can be elected to both house's - one of the 1st things they should do - IS - change voting requirements so that People do not register their affiliation to any party - leave it a mystery to those who find polling useful as well as use such information to Gerrymander in the 1st place.

It's an excellent idea. The government should stay out of the business of helping political parties organize to a death. Free the parties from the government's interference. Give them Liberty or give them Death. Deregulate - live free or die!

Why are physics, chemistry, and biology not called physical science, chemical science, and biological science, respectively, since they are indeed sciences ( I.e., they employ the scientific method to advance towards reproducibility ) ? Why are there political science, Christian science, etc. instead? Those who have the small buttons love boasting of how big their buttons are, lest people forget that they have any button at all. Fascist dictators or insecure wannabes love parades.

The U.S. has such a strong military power by far that it is plainly idiotic to remind peoples more of its phallic obscenity due to the oppressive feelings that its prominent display would surely evoke, undermining our diplomatic rapport with others to solve worldwide problems coöperatively. Almost everybody ( yes, there are still some brain-washed ones who may have to be brain-bashed to get it straightened out ) already knows who is zeroth in global military strength ( Keen u C-taal? Ten oosten van de Mississippi-rivier hebben wij geen goud, geen zilver, zelfs geen Browns?! ). Wir brauchen Blitzkrieg nicht; Lichtkrieg ohne Donner[wetter] nützen wir.

Just north ( one subway stop across the Harlem River ) of the glamorous Manhattan, the living conditions of the South Bronx definitely need improvement. However, given a choice between a place with absolutely no garbage and a place with lots of garbage, I probably prefer the latter because basing upon years of my preschooler experience as an archeologist/recycler in the neighborhood dumps ( archeologists' and anthropologists' dream digs ), I found that the worth of the garbage correlated with the people there ( it could also mean that these people have little sense of their civic duty or pride, regard for others and the environment, or they lack sanitation services ) being well-off enough to discard still valuable things. Any place with absolutely no garbage scares me a lot with its potential abject poverty ( are children at risk of becoming food there? ) or totalitarianism. Maybe that's why I wasn't as alarmed as some other people at the sighting of rodents. Indeed, there are at least foods and drinks nearby!

Hello, kitty, kitty! What a beautiful underground ecosystem we have just across a street from the New York City Hall: Mickey and Minnie clean up New York City subway of a half-eaten doughnut, play hide-and-seek, and even put on a wrestling match and sing sopranos to entertain the tourists, all without charging Disney-World-in-Florida admission prices. Hmm, could it be a satiated tourist who had sponsored the show for establishing Disney-el-norte?

Sorry, tourists! My further "field research" revealed that Mickey and Minnie might indirectly be on the New York City municipal payroll. It's likely a free show sponsored by our community-spirited ( Disney-theme-park admission prices became more exclusive so competition was a way to serve the people ) ecosystem-minded police patrolmen who survive on coffee and doughnuts while on duty. When a lady screams upon sighting the numerous Disney friends and relatives of Mickey and Minnie in that neighborhood, she reports it to the policeman who upon having listened attentively without a word, says, "They don't bite." I believe in the patrolman-doughnut-Disney-friend linkage. A satiated rodent does not bite -- the new Walt Disney is right.

Another small step for mankind , take that f@&$$/ whining gerrymander democracy fucking GOP https://www.salon.com/2018/02/20/pennsylvanias-new-congressional-districts-are-gerrymander-free-and-republicans-are-angry/

new map for Pennsylvania's congressional districts produced by the state Supreme Court is nullifying Republican gerrymandering efforts. It's a fair map, and it's helping Democrats because it's not tilted to help the GOP. Needless to say, Republicans are angry. The redistricting map was drawn with the help of Stanford University law professor Nathaniel Persily, who has helped with the development of other maps used to determine House of Representatives districts elsewhere in the country, according to Politico. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court took it upon itself to impose new districts on the state after Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, was unable to agree upon a new map with the state's Republican leaders, who control the legislature. The need to create a new map emerged after the State Supreme Court ruled last month that the previously gerrymandered map "clearly, plainly and palpably violates" the state's Constitution

Will be interesting to see how this affects the up-coming voting. How many more States need to be UN-Gerrymandered?

Reality IS - is that the wealthy few could care less about reality & their lap dog Government is right there with em - and the reality is that they are busy laying down the path for it to take - is - that TPTB want to try the failed experiment of Peace promoted through the barrel of a gun, right here in the USA!

Note: no sane gun control = people get your AK conversion kit to go fully auto & don't forget to load up on ammo and high bullet capacity clips - the NRA & the Republicans are fully behind your right to own a machine gun - and that is why government is working (currently on a low key basis) to Militarize the Police - apparently government wants all you gun nutters to have an opportunity to try to defend yourself against an armed force = the police and national guard additional military as needed for the full satisfactory experience! Be sure to write your representatives to thank them for the opportunity!

Will the arms racers be stopped? https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/feb/17/the-resistance-niow-activists-gun-lobby

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, together with Everytown for Gun Safety, launched a campaign on Friday which it says will “empower voters to find out where candidates stand on gun safety

“Throw them out” will target members of Congress who are “beholden to the gun lobby”, Moms Demand Action said. They’ve set up five steps people can follow to pressure lawmakers, including how to get politicians on the record as committing to stricter gun control and a tool to encourage friends to vote.

''GOP Is Wrecking Your 401k Retirement Savings'', by Thom Hartmann:

''The rich get richer, and the poor will never be able to retire'' ... at this rate!

With reference to your troubling Salon.com link, Voter Suppression and Gerrymandering has ALWAYS been GOP's agenda - but sadly GOPlite Corp. Dems have not only failed to resist this .. but as Hellary Rotten Clinton & The DNC proved against Bernie Sanders .. they're not averse to using the very same despicable tactics! Fyi ...

respice, adspice, prospice ...

From ''The Art of the Scam'' - as your link above was titled ...

''Since the 2016 election, Democrats have looked for an economic story and policy that would speak to the frustrations of Trump voters — even while recognizing that more nuanced analysis shows that “economic anxiety” wasn’t driving most of Mr. Trump’s well-off supporters — without losing their own base. While the headline economic statistics like gross domestic product, low unemployment, wages on a slow but steady upward path have been healthy, other indicators like stagnating wages, Gilded Age levels of inequality, and communities and older industries that have been left behind together create an obligation to think ambitiously beyond the assumptions of Clinton- and Obama-era economics.

''This overdue introspection has brought several new or revived ideas to the fore: universal basic income, especially popular in Silicon Valley, or a federal jobs guarantee, an idea last heard in the 1970s, revived by the Center for American Progress last May. And perhaps most promising, a new focus on economic concentration and the failure of antitrust enforcement, which has allowed a few behemoth companies, including the tech giants, to wield economic and political power at the expense of consumers and workers alike.

''These good ideas don’t directly touch the immediate experience of most Americans in the real economy of 2018. What is near universal and tangible is the daily experience of uncertainty and risk, in a world in which economic choices are complicated, predators and scammers are everywhere, and government policy under Mr. Trump seems to move in the direction of making choices ever more complex and risky, while removing protections for consumers and workers.

''Giving people some security from the scam economy is never going to involve one big program or idea, like universal basic income or single-payer health care. It will always involve dozens of policies, even to replace the dozens that are currently being dismantled.''

In both compliment and contrast, please consider:

Instead of getting "when I'm not kissing babies, I'm stealing their lollipops ( even from between their legs?! )," let's call for the Forthright ( sustainable for many decades as for a deep-space probe without any built-into-the-system booms and busts ) Economy.

Sufficient to have its very own "Deng Xiaoping" enlightening moment that had set Red China onto the course of its meteoric rise as a great economic power, Russia has discovered a crime or actually an opportunity to free its native entrepreneurial spirit.

Yeah, the enterprising Russian nuclear engineers were beating the sword into a plowshare to farm bitcoins - apart from their personal ends: "There's a butterfly trapped in a spider's web," they are definitely U.N. peace heroes.

Thermodynamic efficiency increases ( with more work done possible for the same amount of natural gas burnt ) as the ambient temperature of the heat sink is lowered ( although in a great cold, I still love keeping my Russian-soldier-style cap with ear flaps on to keep my ears stuck to me, not out there as cooling fins - I'm no electronic supercomputer. ) Frigidly cold Russia with the end-of-the-world-scale natural gas resource has golden petaflop export potential. Real men go whole-food oil-free vegan.

Impotent (failed apes) strongmonkeys go out with a bang. While trying to teach his dawdling diversionary students on Staten Island, Mr. McCourt answered Joey, "No, dammit. Sheep. We went out with sheep." Every Good Boy Does Find.

I think that after crossing the Rubicon, a Julius-Caesar plan will be in the works. Our Presidency conferred [Black] Suspect Citizenship - he should've realized by now even though he had been forewarned. Well, it's just too bad that the rights and privileges of U.S. Citizenship have been inflated away over the years by the Establishment. [Black] suspect citizens are presumed guilty before proven innocent.

Edward Snowden leaked the (questionable?) pervasive state surveillance (surveilling all of 6 degrees of separation suffices to surveil the entire world's population - a single person of interest being surveilled may drag in on the average {based on the U.S. contact number} as many as 10,000 people to be surveilled legally) so that U.S. citizens might do something about it but so far the House memorandum about the "politically biased" FISA-related and -circumvented surveillance hasn't helped with establishing the innocence of the President in the matter of colluding with Russia. There were Russians near the President's former haunt on Fifth Avenue alright. I love the dining at the Russian Tea Room, next door to Carnegie Hall on West 57th Street, but I am NOT a Commie, a foodie perhaps. Yay, I could be a douchebag (yes, All human beings are gigantic douchebags who live near a water source {because life is electric fire burning slowly in water, with reproduction for maximizing the aggregate burning rate "in order to obey" the Second Law of Thermodynamics} ) who likes food! Brooklyn's hipster neighborhood Williamsburg has some fine restaurants, too. Flushing in Queens has the best value for the lower dining costs but it's farther away from the city center, noisy, and very crowded ( oh, yeah! even "citier" than the city center 《municipal building subway (often the Fastest mode of travel if you have to cut through or near to congested areas) station just across the street from City Hall {it was embarrassing for me to be asked for directions in some station by the tourists who had THAT look in their eyes when they were staring at the grimy tops of the porcelain-tiled columns, some gaps left by the missing tiles, the water dripping down from a vent, and the moldy/mossy "waterfall" biome; on one occasion, I even saw "Mickey and Minnie" wrestling, squeaking, biting, shrieking, fighting, and chasing each other over a partially eaten doughnut in the subway track area}》 in Manhattan {I've once encountered a FOOT-long, excluding tail, fat rat on a sidewalk in West Midtown, absolutely amazing, big as a beaver and fast scurrying!} ) or alternatively, "vital and vibrant."

Although smaller and shorter than my Midtown Beavermon, this is still a very cool people-loving and cuddly Rickey Grey on a New York City subway train. It seems to be a little bit disoriented and looking for safety, probably due to the bright lights so it climbs up the man mistaking him as a tree or pole. I absolutely love the family value exhibited here in F-train's 23rd-Street station. I'll vote for them, uncles, aunts, babies, and all, to honorable sojourn.

"@1:33, 36, 2:06 I'm from Queens; Not Flushing; Racist" Yikes, poor hygiene - but for economic vitality, the U.S. absolutely needs Flushing (Queens was so very sleepy back then decades ago - a "bedroom" community which reminded me to snooze and doze off). "@0:26 Your mother! @0:37 Awww, she passed away?! @2:54 You know what? Fuck you! How's your mother?"

Robert Mueller's probe seems to have the potential of settling the matter of collusion with Russia because the former FBI Director (yes, of the Same political party as the President!) is broadly trusted by many people so he has the required credibility to settle the matter for good.

We fight through our despair, that can be our only plan.

The women's march this past weekend was not as large in total as last year, but in some cities it broke records. The media, of course, shunned it.

What was notable, though, and I heard this from a source who attended and I think we can tell this from the placards as well, is that it was a much angrier march, more of a protest than a march. Also, more men were in attendance.


Also, Bernie Sanders hasn't given up. Tonight he held a town hall on Medicare for All.

And, think about it, all the people that Occupied this country from coast to coast 6 years ago, they're still around, they're not pro-Trump. They can rise again. They will rise again.

It's like it has to get worse before it gets better. All the ugly is being revealed so that it can be squashed.
