    Just a name change to be more indicative of how I expect to use it. 

    Strange glitch with Dagblog software just happened

    a comment (a tweet quote) which I tried to post twice on my news thread about deflation numbers here, turns up twice in the running "Recent Comments," but does not appear on the news thread itself. Those entries on "Recent Comments" do take you back to the thread, but the comments themselves do not appear. Just noting the problem in case it happens to someone else.

    Electric Reichstag Bugaloo

    Be on the lookout for Hawaiin Shirts.


    Evidently the Brooks Brothers neo nazi uniforms from Charlottesville (ableit tastefully accessorized with indiscretely placed swastica pins) have morphed into Hawaiin Shirts (?1) as garb for the fashionable white supremecist out for a little provacateur ramble.


    I call upon my Anonymous comrades to penetrate the communications net that must underlie what I have no doubt is the false flag operation seeking to seize upon this moment as the time to foment the fulfillment of their nutty race war dreams..


    The old Krushchev ploy

    One big flaw in conservative thinking along the lines of "laissez faire" attitude to addressing things like inequities and racism in the U.S. system is that their enemies know how to put it to good use:

    DoJ Flynn Kraziness III - The Transcripts

    PS/ The investigation ongoing into Flynn in late 2016 was a counterintelligence investigation; a criminal investigation came later. But the *concepts* undergirding the Logan Act, a criminal statute, are actually even more *richly* in play in a *counterintelligence* investigation.

    Go home

    There was full justification for tonight 's riots. And they shouldn 't have happened..

    We are  partly civilized human beings, most of us  .I certainly don´t include the murderous cop. Heś an ass hole.

    But our protection from   the ass holes fully taking over    is refusing to support them.

    To the question" should I throw this petrol bomb΅'., the answer is ¨go home.΅


    Which states most reflect the U.S. as a whole and which are the most atypical?

    A Riot Is the Language of the Unheard

    Just a reminder - Russian disinfo

    Russian disinformation campaigns thrive on issues that are divisive to Americans. We are just tee'ing things up for nefarious actors to exploit & manipulate our society. We're our own worst enemy. I expect these issues to intensify in the lead up to the November 2020 election.

    Mr. President, sir, we've lost Ann Coulter...

    It may not be like Johnson losing Walter Cronkite, but one may hope that Trump felt a shadow on his grave when he read Coulter's responses to his (predictable) attacks on Jeff Sessions.  (o/t-only Trump could make that piece of shit Sessions sympathetic...


    One can only hope for a twitterstorm out of the orange pustule...

    A Word of Caution for Those Rushing Out to Celebrate Their Release From 'Captivity'

    The pressure is on to "reopen" the economy (a misnaming of what needs to happen). The vision of what that means and the reality that will continue to evolve are in vast conflict. However, regardless of vision, there is a harsh reality that few seem to understand.

    It is more dangerous to be out in public now than at any time since January 22, when we first became aware that there was one person with the virus in the U.S.

    How many reading this are saying "Say WHAT!?"

    The short unhappy coming ¨Recovery.¨


    1. Recovery begins, sort of. During June. In Texas but not everywhere.

    2. @ July 1 Pandemic  resumes. In Texas.

    3. Labor  Department  circulates draft  reinforcing existing  Health regs on   Industry's obligations

    4.Insurance industry intervene 's to side track  3

    5. Trump supports 4. 

    6.Congress  supports 3

    7 Mitch doesn 't

    8 Biden  is elected and it becomes our problem. Good.

    Why Elephants Get Drunk Faster Than Humans

    From the NYT

    Humans are not the only animals that get drunk. Birds that gorge on fermented berries and sap are known to fall out of trees and crash into windows. Elk that overdo it with rotting apples get stuck in trees. Moose wasted on overripe crab apples get tangled in swing sets, hammocks and even Christmas lights.

    Good example showing there's nobody vetting Trump's tweets

    Means 1, Ends 0,get over it.

    Since before Senaca last distracted himself from Philosophical endeavors by noting the recumbent bodies on the way to the water an old reliable philosophical  time
    waster has been   whether ,or to what extent ,Ends , justify the Means.

    Not among the t-wasters was  Clausewi,tz with his clear  view about God ´s  overwhelming affinity for the ¨big battalions" . Particularly ones  deploying gas.

    In the essentially non existent ¨Restoration""debate R =s  more deaths. Of course there will be an unquantifiable

    Hmmm, Never Trumpers want to see him run with the Obamagate thing

    obviously thinks it will be totally counterproductive:
