Finally finished The Pursuit of Power. It is a good book, if a bit scholarly. I found myself repeating chapters a lot (audiobook). It is jam packed with information.

What really disgusts me is the assumption on behalf of the Europeans that “might makes right”. The could conquer different territories in Afrika, so they backfilled moral reasons to justify it. Spreading Religion, medical care, sanitary living ideas, education, …. had nothing to do with why they did what they did, those reasons were just there to get others to go along with it.

Might makes right got morphed into Might makes Right —it’s our right to do so because we can.

I’ve learned a lot about tyranny the past few days. Tyranny is a pair of 2 week old kittens. My life is consumed 24 hours a day by these tiny overlords of cuteness. I watch the clock - is it time for another round of bottle slurping/burping/cuddling/piddles and poops? In between is ensuring clean bedding, mixing formula, finding an hour to run an errand or two (if there’s time), walk the dog, keeping the cockatoo distracted (I catch her looking at the little guys licking her lips, if she had lips). Sleep? Hahaha.

MN had a 3-week long government shutdown that started on July 1 of 2011. It was a horrible mess for everyone. The only good thing that came out of it was that St. Croix State Park was vacant when a huge straight line windstorm hit the park and fallen trees destroyed dozens of little bunkhouses in a group camp that would have had 100 people in it. They would have had to set up a makeshift morgue at the park had it been occupied. The storm changed the look of the park completely. It went from a forest to a prairie overnight.

Holy living crap…granted, I suppose we knew this already, but it’s still shocking to see it so clearly spelled out (not so much the OP but the comments in support…yeesh):

Facebook Post

Basically, they’re all, durr hurr trump better than hillary, we like him MOAR NOW than when we voted for him, he pisses off all the people we hates, herp derp tells it like it is!!11!!!

Bad as those comments are, this may be the worst of all:

I don’t love the guy, or the proposed Medicaid cuts, but I’m still grateful she’s not the President. I would not mind Pence for Prez though.

YOU. CAN’T. FIX. THIS. STUPID.

It also reminds me of why I keep thinking, bad idea for the Dems to simply attack trump’s character and position themselves as “not trump” - all his bugs are features to the idiotic GOPer base, because he’s basically living out their vilest id. Better idea to attack GOPer policies and propose clear, viable alternatives to get non-voters to the polls.

I’m not sure what to read from that except it’s not entirely over. Could be that Dale Ikeda decided to recuse himself from final determination of what the outcome of Chuck’s behavior should be though I have no idea why he would or should.

Interesting Times  Jul 2, 2017 • 2:05:08pm

By the way, in light of all this “is trump’s neverending nutbaggery a strategy or not” debate, it would help to revisit this 2016 Politico piece:

Trump and the Dark Art of Bad Publicity

But the idea, unprecedented at this level of politics, is at the heart of one of the most remarkable mechanisms of Trump’s rise—the conviction that mistakes, flagrant provocations and the attendant bad publicity genuinely don’t matter, so long as they serve the goal of owning the spotlight. On the short list of Trump’s most guiding, abiding beliefs, this is one that ranks near the top: that bad publicity doesn’t have to be avoided, and doesn’t have to be endured—that it should be embraced, and even stoked.

Trump has done this with such longevity that bad publicity somehow has become a facet of his perceived authenticity. He has done it with such consistency that a lack of bad publicity weirdly would feel like a betrayal to his brand. Experienced, respected advertising and marketing professionals—including some who have worked for Trump—told me there’s never been anybody quite like him, this combination of arrogance, intelligence, obstinacy and manifest incapacity for shame.

That point about “authenticity” is especially crucial given the unshakeable cult-like worship he receives from the GOPer base.

Octavia Butler’s “Kindred” is one of the best sci-fi books I’ve ever read. I’m kind of surprised that it has never been made into a movie. I’ve read her “Parable of the Sower” which was pretty good but depressing. With its dystopian Christianist, Rightwing government, it eerily foreshadowed the current Trump government, imho.

“…Michael Mann, director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State University, said the administration is trying to invent its own form of peer review.

“The system they describe is precisely what scientific peer-review is,” Mann said in an email. “The reality is that the only thing these folks don’t like is the conclusion that the scientific community (that is, the world’s scientists, literally) has arrived at — that climate change is real, human-caused, and a threat.”

“So they’re looking to use taxpayer funds to run a pro-fossil fuel industry disinformation campaign aimed at confusing the public and policy makers over what is potentially the greatest threat we face as a civilization.”

I’ve learned a lot about tyranny the past few days. Tyranny is a pair of 2 week old kittens. My life is consumed 24 hours a day by these tiny overlords of cuteness. I watch the clock - is it time for another round of bottle slurping/burping/cuddling/piddles and poops? In between is ensuring clean bedding, mixing formula, finding an hour to run an errand or two (if there’s time), walk the dog, keeping the cockatoo distracted (I catch her looking at the little guys licking her lips, if she had lips). Sleep? Hahaha.

Am i having fun yet? Oh yes. So much.

In America, nobody is racist unless they officially declare black people to be genetically inferior to white people.

Nobody is poor if they have a refrigerator.

Nobody is denied access to healthcare if there’s an ER anywhere near.

Nobody is denied the right to vote if they can get the requisite ID by spending several days and substantial cash.

Four Corners investigates how these deals were done through an unholy alliance formed between Donald Trump and controversial business and political figures in Indonesia.

Trump’s business partners have a troubling history with ties to the corrupt Suharto regime.

While at home in the United States, President Trump rails against Islamic extremism. In Indonesia, he has formed political alliances with politicians aligned with Islamist forces.

And he repeats his same idiotic talking point that Obama and Clinton had similar “cults” who acted like Trump cultists. This guy is in serious denial about why Trump was elected. He hates Trump because Trump doesn’t follow the good old boy rules of the GOP, but the way Nichols and all of his fellow travelers behaved for years — decades, actually — led directly to Donald Trump in the White House.

When someone challenges him on that point about Obama’s “cult,” he brings up schoolchildren singing a song about Obama. It’s fucking laughable.

Point-to-point is better done with fiber in most cases these days. But there’s plenty of point-to-multipoint distribution for which you still can’t beat the economics of satellite.

So please join Kayleigh (who probably doesn’t even know her own name unless it’s sewn into her clothing) says that you only need an ounce of comedic laughter in you (whatever the fuck that means) to see that it was just a delightful little episode of lighthearted humor.

Mom and Dad used to drink Gin and Tonic on summer afternoons, when I was a wee lad.

Then (1971) they went to Europe, and started drinking wine, so they’d have sangria (real stuff made from red wine* with oranges and lemons). Add strawberries if they were in season.

Sometime in the 1990s, Dad planted a bunch of Waldmeister (sweet woodruff), and he’d make May Wine. Also with strawberries or raspberries in season.

* Sangria = “Bulls blood”, as I understand it. Later, Dad would use white wine, so I called it “Plasma del Toro”

So, Trump was busy retweeting anti-Semites today. That’s so campaign 2016 for him.

This isn’t surprising. Not in the slightest. What took him so long to go back to the oldies?

He spent the campaign hyping tweets from white supremacists, neo Nazis, and bigots generally. He’s now back to those fever swamps. It’s what he always does.

Spencer was barely a lever-action. You had to cock the hammer manually before working the lever to load the next cartridge. If you forgot to cock the hammer first, it was dead.

Really, the Henry/Winchester lever-action rifles of the next generation were the first effective repeating rifles, but they were closely followed by the M1 Garand, which was the first true semi-automatic issued to a government army.
