"Look Closely Enough At What's Real, And What Is Not"

Jerkwad of the Day: Sen. Rand Paul, total chump. Wouldn't know "what's real & what is not" if it bit his face off.
Sen. Rand Paul / The Hill:
Boycott sham impeachment  —  Sometimes in Washington, the powers that be will embark in a little bit of political theater.  You can always spot it though if you look closely enough at what's real, and what is not.  —  In the last days of the presidency of Donald Trump …
Little twit's been all over the telly whining about imaginary election fraud. He & Chinese shipping asset McConnell being the Senators from Kain-tuck is an excellent reason to return the state to territorial status.

Next state to examine? Josh Hawley's Missouri.
‘Bamboozled.’ Hawley mentors stunned by conduct, but early warning signs were there  —  Josh Hawley was a precocious 15-year-old in 1995, writing a regular column for his hometown paper, The Lexington News, when he was still in high school.  —  He used the early platform to opine on politics …
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about …

When Trump Enters A Room,
It's Like Five People Leaving

Joshua Zitser / Yahoo News:
Members are quitting Mar-a-Lago because it has become a ‘sad’ and ‘dispirited’ place since Trump moved in, author says  — Trump's Mar-a-Lago golf resort has become a ‘sad place’ since he moved in, an expert on the resort told MSNBC. — Members are quitting and want nothing to do with Trump …

Last Chance ...

Not This Time

In 47ish yrs. resident in Los Angeles County this reporter, never one to shirk his civic duty or to avoid work, has served on two (civil) juries, & been called to or been on-call several other times w/o getting to stick it to the man or a large corporation. Ordinarily I'd be interested in this.
Can anybody read this?
Are they out of their ever-loving minds? No way in hell w/ the plague raging & me aged & co-morbid.

Had to effing leave the bunker thrice today, & rode four different buses. Enough exposure until spring arrives.

One expedition was for medication that must be taken more or less exactly every 24 hrs., of which I'd taken the last one last night. Could be worse: The 30 day supply (made in Colvale-Bardez, Goa, India)  for which I shelled out US$137.49 last month was only US$27.27 this month w/ Plan D.

It is again acceptable to have some mindless fun.

Hank Aaron

As I saw it almost 47 yrs. ago, seated on the couch at 8497 Sunset Blvd. 'Cept in monochrome on a 12" screen.As a non-baseball fan saw Hank.
A few days before he tied the old record, I found myself in a bar — a very rare occurrence — where someone whose purchases there were making up for my abstinence and that of about ten other folks. This very loud, very drunk person was holding forth on how Mr. Aaron should "know his place." That term was only uttered about eighty times, which was a few less than the accompanying "N-word." 

Apparently, Aaron's "place" was to not play to the best of his ability…an odd position for the bombed bigot who also announced that he always bet serious money on the Braves. You'd have thought he'd have liked the concept of a Braves batter belting one over the left field fence or wherever he Aaron that one. But no. Only if that Braves batter had been a white guy. It made about as much sense as that kind of hatred ever does. 

I never saw Hank Aaron play and I know very little else about his career other than that it was long and that The Babe's wasn't the only record that got shattered. But merely based on how mad he must have made that guy in the bar when he did beat Ruth's record, I liked Mr. Henry Aaron a lot.

New Frontiers In The Constitution

Whoa if true. YouTube did add a disclaimer.
The inauguration on the 20th of this month is illegal. So Joe being inaugurated this month doesn't mean he is legally the president. The new legal inauguration will happen around March and that is the one that Trump will be inaugurated at.
Started to watch but the word "spirituality" was heard, so bugger it.

Just one comment.
You are SO correct about SO much. The Banking Act of 1871 hijacked our original Constitutional Republic, where our blessed but bankrupt nation (post Civil War), was SOLD to England (The Crown), with the Crown’s new HQ located in the new 10x10 square mile “District of Columbia.” After each new birth in America, ALL brand new birth certificates are completed as “birth chattel bonds” and immediately sent to the Vatican where they’re traded like investment bonds, with bond values/prices determined on the actual earnings of the “individual” (franchise) within the Master Corporation (America.) Prior to 1871, our founding document was printed as “The Constitution for the united states of America.” After 1871, the new, altered version read, “THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.” It was our corporate constitution. It was NOT the same document as you might believe. Capitalization is NOT an insignificant change. Not when one is referring to the context of a legal document, it isn’t. Such minor alterations have had major impacts on each subsequent generation (of owned) people born in our country. Both the Royal Family/Buckingham Palace & fraudulent Corporation of America were dissolved by Team Trump in the summer of 2019, and most major geo-political events occurring around the world since the dissolution of the American Corporation have basically been an elaborate STING OPERATION to analyze, collect evidence, then document crimes and frauds to expose and convict the anti-American, evil people controlling us, our nation and the world. The extent of evil, vile, Godlessness will utterly shock the world and bring us all to our knees. But we will rapidly heal, recover and begin a God underwritten recovery across the world!!

Too Late, Breeder Scum! Your Global Ponzi Scheme Is Coming Due

This righteous reporter has neither reproduced nor owned an internal combustion engine. (Or purchased anything from Amazon.) But you damn dirty apes had to fuck it all up, didn't you?
Scientists from UCLA and elsewhere warn of a “ghastly future” for humanity with declining health, climate devastation, tens of millions of environmental migrants and more pandemics in the coming years unless extraordinary action is taken soon, according to a paper published Tuesday.

“Without fully appreciating and broadcasting the scale of the problems and the enormity of the solutions required, society will fail to achieve even modest sustainability goals, and catastrophe will surely follow,” said one of the paper’s co-authors, Daniel Blumstein, a UCLA professor of ecology and evolutionary biology and member of the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability.

“What we are saying is frightening, but we must be both candid and vocal if humanity is to understand the enormity of the challenges we face in creating a sustainable future.”

In the paper published in the journal Frontiers in Conservation Science, the 17 prominent scientists cite more than 150 studies, concluding that it is now “scientifically undeniable” that humanity is “on the path of a sixth major extinction.”

The Earth has experienced five mass extinctions, each accounting for a loss of more than 70% of all species on the planet. The most recent was 66 million years ago.

The paper reports projected temperature increases and other human assaults on the environment mean that about 1 million of the planet’s 7 million to 10 million species are threatened with extinction in the coming decades.

Blumstein said that during the next several decades, an extinction affecting as many as 70% of all species — like the earlier mass extinctions cited in the paper — could potentially take place.

One of the major trends discussed in the paper is the explosive growth of the planet’s human population. There are now 7.8 billion people, more than double the Earth’s population just 50 years ago.

By 2050, the figure is likely to reach 10 billion, the scientists write, which would cause or exacerbate numerous serious problems.

For example, more than 700 million people are starving and more than 1 billion are malnourished already; both figures are likely to increase as the population grows.

Population growth also greatly increases the risk for pandemics, the authors write, because most new infectious diseases result from human-animal interactions, humans live closer to wild animals than ever before and wildlife trade is continuing to increase significantly.

Population growth also contributes to rising unemployment and, when combined with a hotter Earth, leads to more frequent and intense flooding and fires, poorer water and air quality, and worsening human health.

The authors write that there is a “near certainty that these problems will worsen over the coming decades, with negative impacts for centuries to come” and that the adverse global trends are obvious.

“Humanity is running an ecological Ponzi scheme in which society robs nature and future generations to pay for short-term economic enhancement today,” said Paul Ehrlich, a Stanford University professor emeritus of population studies and a co-author of the study.

The paper elucidates issues that have been publicized over the past few years by many activists, including the Swedish 18-year-old, Greta Thunberg, Time magazine’s 2019 person of the year. Blumstein said Thunberg has been absolutely right about the urgency of the dangers we face.

The authors also write the severity of the threats should transcend political tribalism, but so far they haven’t — and they’re skeptical about when or if change can occur.

Most of the world’s economies are predicated on the political idea that meaningful counteraction now is too costly to be politically palatable,” according to the paper.

“Combined with financed disinformation campaigns in a bid to protect short-term profits, it is doubtful that any needed shift in economic investments of sufficient scale will be made in time,” the paper contends.

“While it is positive news that President-elect Biden intends to reengage the U.S. in the Paris Climate accord within his first 100 days of office, it is a minuscule gesture given the scale of the challenge,” according to Ehrlich.

The paper suggests concrete changes that could help avert catastrophe. Among them: completely and rapidly ending the use of fossil fuels, strictly regulating markets and property acquisition, reigning in corporate lobbying and empowering women.

But it also acknowledges that humans’ innate “optimism bias” has led some to ignore the warnings about our planet’s future.

“By the time we fully comprehend the impact of ecological deterioration, it will be too late,” Blumstein said.

“As of 5 January 2021, FBI Norfolk received information indicating calls for violence in response to ‘unlawful lockdowns’ to begin on 6 January 2021 in Washington, D.C.,” the report outlines. “An online thread discussed specific calls for violence to include stating, ‘Be ready to fight. Congress needs to hear glass breaking, doors being kicked in, and blood from their BLM and Antifa slave soldiers being spilled. Get violent. Stop calling this a march, or rally, or a protest. Go there ready for war. We get our President or we die. NOTHING else will achieve this goal.’”
