Climate denial. Miz t. at Walgreen.

She's in line to pick up a prescription.
We're in coastal (hurricane prone) Alabama.
Guy in front of her says (more of less) "I want to get back to Chicago as soon as I can. (We get a lot of snowbirds). These hurricanes scare the hell out of me. Global warming."

The 'lady' in line behind Miz t. said "Global warming is a hoax."
The man looked at her.
"Are you serious?"
"Yes, it's a hoax."
Miz t. "When is the last time you saw three hurricanes in the south Atlantic or the Caribbean at the same time?"
Miz t. as she picked up my prescription and walked out "Only idiots believe that."

Me: "Were you bigger than she?"
Miz t. "Yeah, by about a head. She was about 10 years younger."
Miz t. is 72.
"So you think you could have taken her if it came to a throw down?"
"Maybe, she had big hair. I could have gotten a grip."

Did I mention that I love this woman?
Cause I do.

I remember my first Krystal.

Downtown Birmingham, Alabama.
I think they were 13 cents apiece?
OK, they were tiny, but you could get a HALF DOZEN for 78 cents?

And now we call them 'sliders'.

OFFense and DEEfense

In a courtroom it's the duh-FENCE.
A crime might be an ah-FENCE.

Why is it DEE-fence and AH-fence in football?

Talking to an Australian friend and they are scared SHITLESS!

"You know we're well within range of whatever that nutjob in North Korea decides to do. And YOUR president is egging the bastard on? What the hell are you thinking?"

I have no answer.

This Alabama repug senate runoff is nuts.

MILLIONS being poured in on TV ads by both sides.
It's wall-to-wall down here now.

Roy '10 commandments' Moore is endorsed by 0.5 guv Sarah "I quit because it didn't pay enough" Palin, Sebastian "The Smiling Nazi" Gorka, Matt "Kill Abortionists" Trewhella, Steve (words fail) Bannon, Sean "Birther" Hannity, Alan "I'm Absolutely Nuts" Keyes, Phil "I Have the Longest Duck Dynasty Beard" Robertson, Pat "God Hates Gays" Robertson (no relation? maybe?), Chuck "I Can Kick Your Ass" Norris.

Alabama is a goddam zoo and here I be.
Right in the middle of it all.

The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump

Renowned psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton on the Goldwater Rule: We have a duty to warn if someone may be dangerous to others.
By Bill Moyers | September 14, 2017

There will not be a book published this fall more urgent, important, or controversial than The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, the work of 27 psychiatrists, psychologists and mental health experts to assess President Trump’s mental health. They had come together last March at a conference at Yale University to wrestle with two questions. One was on countless minds across the country: “What’s wrong with him?” The second was directed to their own code of ethics: “Does Professional Responsibility Include a Duty to Warn” if they conclude the president to be dangerously unfit?

As mental health professionals, these men and women respect the long-standing “Goldwater rule” which inhibits them from diagnosing public figures whom they have not personally examined. At the same time, as explained by Dr. Bandy X Lee, who teaches law and psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine, the rule does not have a countervailing rule that directs what to do when the risk of harm from remaining silent outweighs the damage that could result from speaking about a public figure — “which in this case, could even be the greatest possible harm.” It is an old and difficult moral issue that requires a great exertion of conscience. Their decision: “We respect the rule, we deem it subordinate to the single most important principle that guides our professional conduct: that we hold our responsibility to human life and well-being as paramount.” Hence, this profound, illuminating and discomforting book undertaken as “a duty to warn.”

The foreword is by one of America’s leading psychohistorians, Robert Jay Lifton. He is renowned for his studies of people under stress — for books such as Death in Life: Survivors of Hiroshima (1967), Home from the War: Vietnam Veterans — Neither Victims nor Executioners (1973), and The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide (1986). The Nazi Doctors was the first in-depth study of how medical professionals rationalized their participation in the Holocaust, from the early stages of the Hitler’s euthanasia project to extermination camps.
The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump will be published Oct. 3 by St. Martin’s Press.
Here is my interview with Robert Jay Lifton — Bill Moyers

Mark Wahlburg is a bit of a shit.

Watching his 'show' (really?) on A&E (really?).
About possibly introducing a veggie burger into his chain of burger joints.
Oh dear.

We're about to be 'blessed' with a Whalburger's here in Foley, Alabama.

It will be here, in our brand new Indian paid for 'amusement' park.

Alex Jones: The Deep State is drugging Trump's Diet Cokes and making him stupid

“It’s known that most presidents get drugged,” Jones explains, after comparing Trump to President Reagan, who was also “doing the right things” his first year in office — you know, before he was shot and given a “cold blood” transfusion which causes brain damage and is totally a real thing that happened.

“They slowly gave him small amounts of sedatives,” Jones continues. “Small dosages of sedatives till they build it up, Trump’s such a bull he hasn’t fully understood it yet.”

But I’ve talked to people, multiple ones, and they believe that they are putting a slow sedative that they’re building up that’s also addictive in his Diet Cokes and in his iced tea and that the president by 6 or 7 at night is basically slurring his words and is drugged. Now first they had to isolate him to do that. But yes, ladies and gentleman, I’ve talked to people that talk to the president now at 9 at night, he is slurring his words. And I’m going to leave it at that. I’ve talked to folks that have talked to him directly.

Four whitetail does just ran across or back yard.

Happily they didn't disturb the great blue heron roosting on the dock.
Ain't nature grand?
