About Me

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland. OUR INSTITUTIONS ARE INFESTED WITH GREEDY AND CORRUPT SOCIOPATHS

Profound and disturbing. American Democracy is toast. also Nicolle Wallace has a lot of info about putin loving republics sabotaging Ukraine's war efforts and thus triggering a Putin conquest of NATO countries and other Democracies he wants to destroy., Putin real wants a second Trump term to stick a fork in our Democratic Republic.

Jerrod did finally receive a full blown security clearance via his reprehensible worst president in history father in law. which led to luring Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi to turkey so the saudi's could murder and then dismember him. There's a possibility he was dismembered while still alive. (see link below) Nice guy, this Kushner. clearly shows he's cool with being an accessory to torture and murder.

Mohammed bin Salman ordered the murder and President Biden shook his hand four days ago at the G20 meeting.

found this quite profound and right up DU's alley

copied from a friend on a private fb group:

John from Tennessee in NYTimes comments:
You know, sometimes I think about how incredible it would be if we the normal people had as much singular authority as republicans want Trump to have.
Think of how many rights to love whomever you want we could enshrine. Or bodily autonomy. How we could dismantle institutions designed to stifle progress like the electoral college and create a democracy where you don't get 40x the vote if you live in Nebraska vs California. How we could bring the Supreme Court in line with the rest of the western world with more Justices who are held to account if they overreach.
How many resolutions we could pass to protect the environment and make serious progress towards a new generation of green economic growth. How we could restore the progressive taxes of our past, and ensure that those benefitting the most from society also contribute the most. How many protections we could put in place for our scientific experts to be able to act with independence and autonomy, and ensure that public research benefits the public first and foremost.
All of these things have overwhelming public support, but cannot and will never be passed by institutions designed to benefit the interests of the wealthy and reactionary. So I say, let's embrace getting things done and bypassing institutions that are not and have never been democratic so that we can finally make them so.
The public support for this, in poll after poll, is tremendous. The people are crying out for change. Let's give it to them.

end of c&p

I must re-read and absorb this cogent assessment of America's current state of public affairs. Really hits home about how far we've been driven off course from the ideals of what America could be. decades of greed and corruption has killed the golden goose of what we could have been.

Keith Olbermann's 4/28/2023 podcast

I've been a Keith fan since his first MSNBC show in the early 2000's. His insight into modern mass media is profound. Keith is a NATIONAL TREASURE. Plus, he guested a lot of comedians. Anybody that mentions the old Bob & Ray radio show, which my parents used to listen to, not to mention second gen Chris Elliot, is still at it with adult swim fifteen minute vignettes Enjoy! -90% Jimmy

PS, I know he is considered by some to be "difficult to work with". I don't care. Hes one of the most credible journo's we currently have.


Something we should add to our local tv weather reports

We should also report on the latest mass murders in your area. Forecast for mass murders is higher than normal in your area. Please arm yourselves with AK-47's to take out anybad guys with guns you may encounter


first; decide to invade, second; come up with justification

"For bureaucratic reasons we settled on one issue, weapons of mass destruction, because it was the one reason everyone could agree on." - wolfowitz

the decision to invade was first, the justification was CREATED later.

"those wmd's gotta be around here some where?' - a humorous GWB

unusual news from my families home town

my great grandfather james bates was one of the first police chiefs in harvey at the turn of the 20th century. used to visit grandmother and great aunt on annual family vacation in the sixties. long island to harvey, long drive for a ten year old. house my grandfather built is across the street from the library on turlington avenue. he got two pages in the 1962 harvey centennial history book.

small world stuff of little consequence. harvey used to be more vibrant and prosperous 60 years ago. best years well in the past.

newsmax. wow. just wow, lord god king bufuu of all wows

i catch snippets as i channel surf and it's a blown on fuel misinformation un-American talking head big club of treason weasels!

i heard one guy make that case that "nazi" is short for "national socialism", therefore any progressive liberal democratic socialist is comparable to Hitler, Goebbels, Goring (my favorite nazi) Himmler, and Josef Mengele, to name but a few.

Positively infuriating that we have so many morbidly wealthy TRAITORS donating millions of rubles to put such a network on the air.

With this sort of thing in main stream media, no wonder we all hate each other!
