about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.
You eat 100 Tablespoons of butter in 10 days.
2,200 grams of Fat per day
1,170 grams of Saturated Fat per day.
Fats are good for you. Your brain is composed of 85% Fats. When you starve your body of Fats because you think fats are bad, your body actually contorts itself to figure out how to use the available fats in your diet to make your biology manage to function, because a low-fat diet is actually a starvation diet.
Processed fats (Canola Oil) are bad but that's because they are poly-unsaturated and rancid, which means that they easily degenerate into unhealthy toxic bi-products, and are inherently unstable. That's why Saturated fats are good for you.
Eating fats does not cause arteriosclerosis. Fat does not clog your arteries. Having Fats in the blood is not due to eating a lot of fats in your diet.

Yep - crime only matters before elections
Because - perhaps - the oligarchs that own the media want you to be afraid.

The Ukraine War
is real. And Beau made a poignant statement
"War is just an extension of foreign policy that failed" or something like that. Which is profound. When people can't compromise or respect each other, at some point they decide that the best option is to kill the other people who are not in their clan. Which is hard to swallow for non-aggressive peaceful folk, but that is the inevitable conclusion.

This was not about the National Archives
This is more than just the National Archives whining about Presidential records. If anything, it was the people at the National Archives who tipped off the FBI that enabled the discovery that Trump more than likely was giving classified information to foreign agents.
The Dailykos source is quoting and linking to the New York Times.
Previous court filings have confirmed the ex-president held classified records in storage areas at Mar-a-Lago, but the document unsealed on Friday showed dozens of files were found in Mr Trump's office.
Among the files allegedly recovered from that room during the unprecedented 8 August search were:
3 documents marked confidential
17 documents marked secret
7 documents marked top secret
43 empty folders with classified banners
28 empty folders labelled "Return to staff secretary/military aide"
More than 11,000 government documents in total were retrieved by the FBI from the Palm Beach estate, say investigators.

Michael Cohen speaks the truth
What is he doing with Classified documents at a private golf club? Why were there 43 empty folders marked classified? How come those documents went missing? What were classified documents doing in Trump's desk drawer of his office at the private golf club - along with his passports?
Oh but Hillary's emails and Hunter Biden's lap-top computer.
"People think it's smart, nay cutting-edge, to create a sort of virtual currency whose creation requires wasting real resources in a way Adam Smith considered foolish and outmoded in 1776." ("Adam Smith Hates Bitcoin") (April 12, 2013)
"To be successful, money must be both a media of exchange and a reasonably stable store of value. And it remains completely unclear why bitcoin should be a stable store of value." ("Bitcoin is Evil") (December 28, 2013)
The enthusiasm for cryptocurrencies seems very odd, because it goes exactly in the opposite of the long-run trend. Instead of near-frictionless transactions, we have high costs of doing business, because transferring a bitcoin or other cryptocurrency unit requires providing a complete history of past transactions. Instead of money created by the click of a mouse, we have money that must be mined — created through resource-intensive computations." ("Transaction Costs and Tethers: Why I'm a Crypto Skeptic") (July 31, 2018)
"Cryptocurrencies have no backstop, no tether to reality. Their value depends entirely on self-fulfilling expectations — which means that total collapse is a real possibility. If speculators were to have a collective moment of doubt, suddenly fearing that bitcoins were worthless, well, bitcoins would become worthless." ("Transaction Costs and Tethers: Why I'm a Crypto Skeptic") (July 31, 2018)
"There might be a potential equilibrium in which bitcoin (although probably not other cryptocurrencies) remain in use mainly for black market transactions and tax evasion, but that equilibrium, if it exists, would be hard to get to from here: once the dream of a blockchained future dies, the disappointment will probably collapse the whole thing." ("Transaction Costs and Tethers: Why I'm a Crypto Skeptic") (July 31, 2018)
"Crypto has been effectively marketed: It manages both to seem futuristic and to appeal to old-style goldbug fears that the government will inflate away your savings, and huge past gains have drawn in investors worried about missing out. So crypto has become a large asset class even though nobody can clearly explain what legitimate purpose it's for." (How Crypto Became the New Subprime) (January 27, 2022)
"I'm seeing uncomfortable parallels with the subprime crisis of the 2000s. No, crypto doesn't threaten the financial system — the numbers aren't big enough to do that. But there's growing evidence that the risks of crypto are falling disproportionately on people who don't know what they are getting into and are poorly positioned to handle the downside." (How Crypto Became the New Subprime) (January 27, 2022)
"Bitcoin plays into a fantasy of self-sufficient individualism, of protecting your family with your personal AR-15, treating your Covid with an anti-parasite drug or urine and managing your financial affairs with privately created money, untainted by institutions like governments or banks." ("Guns, Germs, Bitcoin and the Antisocial Right") (January 31, 2022)
"Cryptocurrencies play almost no role in economic transactions other than speculation in crypto markets themselves. And if your answer is 'give it time,' you should bear in mind that bitcoin has been around since 2009, which makes it ancient by tech standards; Apple introduced the iPad in 2010." ("Crashing Crypto: Is This Time Different?") (May 17, 2022)
"If you believe, as I do, that crypto is to a large extent a Ponzi scheme, this may just happen to be the moment when the scheme has run out of new suckers." ("Wonking Out: Wasn't Bitcoin Supposed to Be a Hedge Against Inflation?") (June 17, 2022)
"Jim Chanos went on to call crypto a 'predatory junkyard.' Well, I wouldn't go that far. Actually, on second thought, I would." ("Wonking Out: Wasn't Bitcoin Supposed to Be a Hedge Against Inflation?") (June 17, 2022)
"The way I see it, crypto evolved into a sort of postmodern pyramid scheme. The industry lured investors in with a combination of technobabble and libertarian derp; it used some of that cash flow to buy the illusion of respectability, which brought in even more investors. And for a while, even as the risks multiplied, it became, in effect, too big to regulate." ("Crypto Is Crashing. Where Were the Regulators?") (July 11, 2022)
