Laurence Fishburne was on The Daily Show tonight. (He's playing Nelson Mandela in a BET series about him)
Sharing the reluctance - or inability - of all right-minded people to speak the name of the abomination currently inhabiting the presidency, Fishburne refers to the current president by his chronology - "45"
Trevor Noah explained his laughter at that, saying that, in South Africa, "45" is slang for…Continue
Australia Zoo Urges People to Try and Capture Deadly Spiders: An Australian zoo is urging people to try and capture and donate deadly funnel-web spiders, to help replenish stocks of antidote which is running low after a spate of spider bites. Is it just me, or has anyone else ever though about the more you encourage ordinary people to try capturing these deadly spiders, the more antidote you’re gonna need?…Continue
In a comment to a recent post Koshersalaami made the following observation re why Hillary lost the election:
"Part of it was that while Hillary was conscientious enough to run with a VP who could run the country in the event she wasn't able to, she wasn't conscientious enough politically to pick someone who could get elected and energize Bernie's voters like Elizabeth Warren would have."
To this apt observation I would add the fact that Elizabeth Warren has the chops to run the…Continue
R.U.R. meets RoboCop?
The thinking folks have been banging the drum that Kim Jong-Don is a con man, who managed to convince 77,000 idiot white folks in the Alabama areas of three otherwise rational Northern states that their problems are caused by dark folk, rather than the billionaire class of Kim Jong-Don. The biggest of the Big Lies from Kim Jong-Don and his cabal is that China, et al are the cause of manufacturing employment's…Continue

Trumpers on TV saying tut tut, pundits talking about crowd size when there's CRIME JOBS blah blah.
Well, yes - it says something significant that Obama drew far more people to his inauguration than Trump.
Do facts matter? Does it matter that your president lies outright, in your face, in the CIA's faces, and sends out his press secretary to lie outright?
Kellyanne Conway on Meet the Press this morning tried to slough it off with the notion of "alternative facts".…Continue
Another Saturday night in exurbia. The little woman puts the Trader Joe’s pre-fabricated hors d’oeuvres in the oven, I light a Java-Log–the innovative, hassle-free firewood substitute made from recycled coffee grounds. We’re all set for an evening of natural conviviality with new friends!

Spring has arrived early this year, which is cool with me. I'm not a big fan of frozen dirt and slippery roads and today all was right with the world. I almost slept through it, though. I don't know why I get so tired, but I do.
I awoke before the crack of down in the usual way, with Medjet…Continue

The March is on!!
The Marches are on!
All over the country...
It is powerful, exciting, crucially important -- for all.
I don't have Foolish Monkey's gift of narrating events, but here is the link to The Guardian's live stream of the event. Not sure how or if I could embed, but...…Continue
Garbage in Garbage out
Bullshit in Bullshit out.
I was not going to listen to Trump’s inaugural address, but it was inescapable. So I heard him tell the world just how lousy the US is, and that he will make it all better, like a mother telling a bruised child.
Are the Trump voters just big babies with bruised egos?
The US has problems, and inequality is a big one (one that conservatives have worked hard to deny). But compared to our peer nations,…Continue
