Wanna know who the people are in the Pandora Papers?

easy peasy...the creators of the Pandora Papers ( same ones who put out the Panama and the Paradise papers, have all the names and all the money stashes on their website, here:


Sure explains why nothing never gets better........

Burning question about airplane passengers who create a brouhaha over not masking:

Their motivation, actually.

Do they mask when coming into the airport, checking luggage, sitting in waiting area, getting the boarding pass, and, most importantly, entering and sitting on the plane?

Surely they know they have to mask for some, if not all, the preflight stuff. And they know if the flight requires them.

So what is the point of starting a fight in the seating area? Haven't they watched the news and seen the consequences of previous rule breaking passengers??

I don't get it.

2 weeks ago trump's super spreader event was here in Ala.

New cases have 7 day average of over 5,000 now. Been climbing daily since Aug. 25th.

deaths are still relatively low, but we know now that some cases become terminal weeks after infection.

Alabama population is 4.9 million as of 2019 count.


and the season for Alabama's 2nd major religion, football, is upon us.

Pelosi just announced making abortion rights a Federal Law!!!!!

I hope they call it the Abbott Law.He just shot himself and all Pres. ambitions in the leg.

Nancy Pelosi Announces Vote On Bill To Codify Roe v. Wade
The House speaker said she’s responding to the Supreme Court’s “cowardly, dark-of-night decision” decision to greenlight Texas’ extreme anti-abortion law.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Thursday that she plans to bring up legislation that would codify Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that protects the right to choose to have an abortion, as soon as the House returns from recess this month.

“Upon our return, the House will bring up Congresswoman Judy Chu’s Women’s Health Protection Act to enshrine into law reproductive health care for all women across America,” Pelosi said in a statement.

Her announcement comes a day after the U.S. Supreme Court allowed an extreme Texas law to go into effect that criminalizes abortion at six weeks and deputizes citizens to enforce the ban.

The House speaker railed against the Supreme Court’s decision, saying its “cowardly, dark-of-night decision” to let the Texas law take effect “delivers catastrophe to women in Texas, particularly women of color and women from low-income communities.”


Trump may be losing control of his followers

As most parents know, when you read bedtime stories to the lil kids, they go thru a phase when they want the same book read to them over and over and over. They know it by heart and if you leave anything out, they are quick to call you on it. The story is very real to them, knowing it by heart is soothing..

I was reminded of this while watching the pasture rally in Cullman. Both trump and Mo Brooks got loudly booed when they changed part of the familiar story.

Trump actually said people should get vaccinated. Immediately boos and shouts of NO No.
He finally had to say, with some snark..." Ok..get vaccinated or don't, it's up to you," then he added " You'll find out soon enough"...The crowd relaxed.

Mo Brooks, who came on before trump, urged the crowd to "leave 2020 election behind us" and was interrupted by loud boos. He tried again, got booed again.
Brooks was visibly taken aback by this.
3rd time he was able finish his thought, awkwardly, by saying something like "ok.ok..remember the past election, but focus all your efforts on 2022 and 2024"...words to that effect.


Anyone know what happened about National Guard being sent to border wall?

big news when it happened, haven't seen anything since.


thank you for the answers....

Here's an excellent searchable database of the Jan. 6 seditionists.

"A new online tool for #SeditionHunters! A searchable photoboard of all perps.
Click on each perp and you get a page of photos and information."


big news today is photos of former U.S. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA 42) in the mob.

Trump's audience yesterday could not have been over 1,250

That's the maximum allowable seating at the Greenville Convention Center.
Haven't found out if it was fully occupied.

So when you hear the trump camp bragging about a huge crowd size.......

Oh god....that horrible screeching of the national anthem..

Just tuned to Youtube video of TFG speech, it opens with some frowsy looking blond ( of course) woman screeching the anthem.

A warning of what was yet to come, obviously.

Amazon US customers have one week to opt out of mass wireless sharing

The proposal, called Amazon Sidewalk, involves the company’s devices being used as a springboard to build city-wide “mesh networks” that help simplify the process of setting up new devices, keep them online even if they’re out of range of home wifi, and extend the range of tracking devices such as those made by Tile.

The feature works by creating a low-bandwidth network using smart home devices such as Amazon Echoes and Ring security cameras. At its simplest, it means that a new Echo can set itself up using a neighbour’s wifi, or a security camera can continue to send motion alerts even if its connection to the internet is disrupted, by piggybacking on the connection of another camera across the street. Other devices that don’t need a high-bandwidth connection, such as smart lights, pet locators or smart locks, can use Sidewalk all the time.

But Sidewalk has come under fire for the apparent lack of transparency with which Amazon has rolled out the feature, as well as the limited time available for users to complete the tricky process required to opt out. Other critics have expressed concerns that failing to turn the setting off could leave customers in breach of their internet service provider’s terms and conditions.

But the company’s plans have caused alarm among observers. Ashkan Soltani, a former chief technology officer of the US Federal Trade Commission, told the tech site Ars Technica: “In addition to capturing everyone’s shopping habits (from amazon.com) and their internet activity (as AWS is one of the most dominant web hosting services) … now they are also effectively becoming a global ISP with a flick of a switch, all without even having to lay a single foot of fiber”. The feature may also break the terms and conditions of users’ internet connections, which do not allow such resharing, warned Lydia Leong, an analyst at Gartner.


So the "feature" has been built into all the devices they want to use, meaning all the devices already in homes as well as future purchased devices.
Meaning this has been a plan all along.

sort of the Bitcoin mining concept, sounds like.
Wonder if they can use my wi-fi even tho I don't have any devices..
oooops...the Fire tablet.....
