36th run for the America's Cup started today in NZ.

NZ, UK, Italy and US start with a round robin to pick the best boat to challenge. US now in the lead with two wins. These boats go 45 knots on foils that can retract or deploy as needed. Take a look!

Oh dear, they left Climate Change off the list for Tomorrow's debate.

Maybe you would like to sign a petition and get the subject some attention....as if the burning up of the entire west coast and flooding of the gulf course wasn't noticed.

I'm 73 and my memory may be failing me, but....

I don't ever remember people flying huge flags with a presidential candidate's name on it. Besides the trucks and the boats in Texas, there are boats right here in liberal Massachusetts flying the damn Trump things.

But maybe this isn't new?

When Kyle Rittenhouse was at the Militia training school,

he must have missed the session about how the carrying the guns is just for show. You're not supposed to use them, they are just for intimidation and bluster. Oh and be sure to stand in groups because if 10 angry citizens target you and your "piece", unless you are willing to start gunning down everyone you stand to lose your baby.

Did not anyone tell these people who decided they need to protect the properties by showing up with guns (see St. Louis etc.) that there might be consequences? Do they not see how these killings of unarmed citizens by the police has really got people worked up?


Road rage? Nothing compared to how I'm feeling right now.

California health official resigns. Does anyone remember the young lady who

reported problems with state data collection? Was that in California? Just wondering if it all connected.

Say what you want about "Defunding the Police". A week ago

few people had ever heard of such a concept. Tonight, Judy Woodruff on the NPR Newshour spent half her time talking about it. The New York Times has a link on it's website's front page to two or three articles discussing the issue. Biden is talking about it.

We Americans are on a ladder, growing up and moving on. Gotta love it. The path is bending towards Justice.

A window into Trump's problem with understanding Science.

Our President hasn't even a basic grasp on the concept of "Cause and Effect". Apparently raised, covered with wealth, without having to deal with consequences of what he says or does. Listen to his words. An alien to everything human.

This video suggests a rational method to take on Trump 2020.

To counter his appeal to negative emotions we will need to bring substance and meaningful solutions to the people.

Doctor Charged With Fraud After U.S. Says He Sold Treatment as '100 Percent' Cure for Covid-19

Crazy as it may seem, this Trump inspired business was only a concern to the FBI because of a claim of 100% cure! From the article:

"But the case, Assistant U. S. Attorney Robert Huie said, is about the 100 percent curative claims made about the medication.

“Our case is not about the doctor touting drugs,” Mr. Huie said in a phone interview on Friday. “It’s not about whether drugs are good or bad, it’s about him telling patients, telling would-be customers, in an effort to sell his services, that what he’s offering is a 100 percent cure and it confers temporary immunity.”

The doctor, Jennings Ryan Staley, 44, a licensed physician and the owner of Skinny Beach Med Spa in San Diego, was charged with mail fraud on Thursday for his role in selling “Covid-19 treatment packs” that included the medications hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California said in a statement. Mr. Trump has promoted hydroxychloroquine as a “what have you got to lose” remedy.

The treatment packs were billed as a “concierge medicine experience,” and retailed “at $3,995 for a family of four, that included among other things access to Dr. Staley,” the two medications, and “anti-anxiety treatments to help you avoid panic if needed and help you sleep,” prosecutors said.

Skinny Beach Med Spa, which offered a range of beauty-related services such as Botox, hair removal, and fat transfer, started advertising the packs in late March, prosecutors said. An investigation was opened after F.B.I. agents received a tip.
