Fierce Collision of Neutron Stars Detected for the First Time: Astronomers announced that they have both seen and heard a pair of neutron stars colliding, giving them their first glimpse of the violent process by which most of the gold and silver in the universe is created. All I can say is, its probably a good thing those two stars can come up with all that gold and silver because, as it turns out - when they collided, neither of them had any…Continue
The efforts to disarm the American public and abolish the 2 Amendment using the Las Vegas mass shooting are becoming further exposed as the days and weeks after this orchestrated massacre transpire.…Continue
hi all, 20th century icon hefner died a few wks ago.[a2] bummer! a very polarizing figure, public loved/ hated him. my feeling is that he helped launch a few revolutions but all revolutions tend to have extreme elements. its a remarkable historical coincidence/ timing with the Weinstein meltdown. my feeling, there is not a huge, unbridgeable amount of difference between these two figures, but the outcomes were vastly different.
have been piling up polyamory links over…Continue
Social media is an interactive environment in which exhibitiinism and voyeurism are de rigueur.
It's the place where there is a marked deficiency of academic rigor, scholarly discipline, intellectual curiosity, and logic, so much so that it breeds and feeds upon itself...
It's the place where fact and fiction are confused and conflated into an alternate universe of unfounded, ungrounded, and unsubstantiated opinion.
It's where people who hide behind…

Don’t speak to me of “healing” racism,
or “wounded souls” or the “painful hurt”
until you are willing to feel the scars
on my great-great-grandmother Laury’s back.
Don’t speak to me of “values”
or “justice” or “righting wrongs”
until you are able to feel the heartache
of my great-grandfather Graham
whose father may have been his master.
Don’t speak to me of “equity”
or “opportunity” or the…

Paleogenetics Says Humans Have DNA From the Denisovans: National Geographic just published an article about how modern humans also have DNA from two other close relatives that lived in close proximity and with whom we interbred - the Neanderthals, and the rather mysterious Denisovans. Not being an anthropologist, I can’t speak about the Neanderthals, but there were a family of Denisovans that lived two doors down from me where I grew up in Canton, Ohio. …Continue
. . . we can concur that sound bites are highly malleable wedge issues. . .
Wasting assets and false needs are clear and prescient dangers --- expedients of greed and fear, dare I say, detractors from social welfare, which is goal orientated toward good, self-actualized - sane - healthy human beings.
And our better angels.
Hence, the contra to social welfare is social warfare. The circumstance a…Continue

Astronomers Find Half of Missing Matter in Universe: In one of cosmology’s perplexing problems, up to 90% of the ordinary matter in the universe appears to have gone missing, and astronomers report that they’ve finally detected about half of this missing content for the first time. So I’m guessing that means the other half is still misplaced? Tell you what, I’ll keep an eye out and if I happen to see any of it, I’ll let you know.…Continue
Supply Side Economics: History and Evidence
A couple of days ago Virginia Congressmen, David Brat, was interviewed about whether he thought that President Trump out to be trying to “primary” those who have voted against bills he supports. The congressman said that the “true” Republican agenda of decreasing taxes, government spending, government regulation, and the size of government are the things Trump ran on, and anyone who does not support Trump’s tax plan is voting…Continue
Lots of folks like to visit the beach during the summer. I grew up on Long Island, where access to the beach was easy, and that's what we did as soon as school was over in June- we went to the beach all summer long. Eventually I discovered that the beach was even nicer in the fall. There were less people around, and I could enjoy the sun and the air and the surf from the comfort of a blanket on the shore. No need to go swimming. I would go whenever I could until it was just too cold to be…Continue
President Trump Speaks to the President of US Virgin Islands: President Trump turned some heads recently when he told attendees of a Values Voter Summit in Washington that he had just spoken to the president of US Virgin Islands,” which would actually be himself. One thing’s for sure, I’ll bet it didn’t take the President of the US Virgin Islands very long to figure out whether President Trump would score higher on an IQ test than Secretary of State…Continue

Ironical and hypocritical that attendees at the so-called Values Voter Summit so wildly supported Donald Trump, a man clearly without values.
I'm cold. Middle of August and I am cold.
Old lady Nel was told she would be living here today.
The crying was unbearable. Nel heaved and twisted and turned calling out, "I want to go home! Take me home…Continue
