“Neocons and warmongers aren’t the only ones that perpetually try to keep Americans in a constant state of fear, with the solution always being a further sacrifice of life and liberty to the government. The other side of the spectrum is populated by the environmental prophets of doom.”
“Questioning of dogma need not apply. That sounds more like religion than science. Being for science means being for discussion. So who is anti-science here? A classic case of ‘blame your opposition for what you are actually doing.’ It is not the skeptic side shutting down debate.”
Raizes and windmills, oh my! First time doing Raizes in a pit, and first time really giving them a good try since I hurt my knee..doing a Raiz.. This is followed by me flopping around like an injured dolphin trying to get the feel of windmills. But towards the end, I start to get it. Just gotta smooth it out, keep the legs straight the whole time. Raizes need more arch, and more swing..gettin there though. Its all about the journey, right? Monday Funday
Just accidentally stumbled upon a bumblebee nest as I was digging. This is exactly what I wanted (seriously) – a natural habitat where bees settle naturally and pollinate the flowers. I just hope I didn’t scare them away! I’ll try to get video later – they still freak me out a bit when they fly towards me to defend the nest.
Whatever one thinks of the specific points in this column about this specific president, it cannot be argued that there is a perception among many that government is just another way for someone to get rich and famous, and if that’s the case, why note just vote for someone who’s already rich and famous? Whether or not you agree with that perception, it seems like the only way to refute it is to do what you can to prevent people from being cynical.
“The historian Stefan Ihrig explained why the rating is so low in Forbes magazine: ‘Here this movie, for all intents and purposes not yet available to the public, has become something of an online sensation, or rather an online battlefield… We are witnessing yet another anti-Armenian denialist campaign playing out abroad, far away from Turkey, in open, democratic societies. While it is not clear who is orchestrating the campaign, it has to be assumed that, as with other campaigns, connections go back to the Turkish government and/or nationalist groups.’”
“A search of Google News shows dozens of outlets ran with the video without any skepticism and the majority have yet to issue any corrections.
“These are the paragons of honest journalism and truth seeking whom Facebook and Google are working overtime to artificially boost while acting to suppress us riffraff.
“Of course, these same honest journalists lied us into the war in Iraq with fake news about WMDs and not one of these ‘fact checkers’ questioned the Trump administration’s claim Bashar al-Assad carried out the recent chemical attack in Syria.”
“In other words, the whole world was spying on Trump, not just the Obama administration, and even with all of these resources the Democrats and their media got exactly squat. There is no evidence of any wrongdoing between Team Trump and Russia. There is, however, a growing pile of evidence that Team Barry needs to be investigated by Congress and the Justice Department.
“Hinderaker’s second point is that everyone in the world was so sure Hillary Clinton was going to beat Trump that all of these countries believed it was safe to ‘curry favor with the new administration’ by spying on her opponent, by offering her intelligence-oppo during the campaign that was then leaked to a MSM that was 100% complicit in this illegal behavior — because leaking intelligence is a felony.”
While you suckers are at your day jobs getting things like salaries and benefits, I’m googling “how to prepare for a golden shower” as part of research for the Russian Golden shower scene in my hotel play in New York June 23 and 24 at Washington Square Hotel that I’m writing/ devising/ performing for a plane ticket, honorarium, and HELLA GLORY.
Visited the factory of Tesla, the pioneer of electric cars, courtesy of my friend Michael Nathan. Yes, the hundreds of robots are impressive that are welding and lifting the car frames, working hand in hand with technicians to build the most advanced electric cars in a factory spanning over 90 football fields. Yes, the massive metal press that is seven stories high is impressive that Tesla’s engineers had to saw off and reassemble in order to fit it under bridges while transporting it to California.
But what really struck me was that Tesla is just 13 years old. Even with the stroke of luck to be able to buy GM/Toyota’s old car manufacturing plant for $42M during the financial crisis although the value of the plant is over $1B, it is still an astonishing entrepreneurial feat by Elon Musk and his founding team to create this entire production process in such a short time and create cars that please buyers that are used to Mercedes, BMW, Lexus and Porsche cars.
It’s entrepreneurship at a world class level. That’s inspiring.
