It's not 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.

Robert Lustig : Processed Food, an experiment that failed




Saturday, 30 September 2017 at 16h 28m 35s

The disaster in Puerto Rico occurred long before Hurricane Maria



Lee Camp tells it like it is. The corporate media always focuses on the benevolent corner of the dysfunctional cancer that is financial corporatocracy.

The truth is that Puerto Rico became a colonial possession of the financiers and large corporations when it was taken in the Spanish American War of 1898 ... because ... well you know, freedom of course. That's why Puerto Rico is still not a state, has no representation in Congress, has been a tax haven for decades, and actually has a law passed by Congress from 1984 that makes bankruptcy illegal. Unlike Hawaii -- which was incidentally the first colonial possession of the United States that did not arise from war or treaty with another foreign power.

Hawaii was possessed in 1893 by a rump group of Americans who asked the United States to protect them because other foreign powers were going to corrupt the government of Queen Lili'uokalani and they were all about her safety and protection. Or so claimed the newspapers and the official proclamations.


After her brother's death on January 20, 1891, Liliʻuokalani ascended to the throne and assumed the title on January 29. During her reign, she attempted to draft a new constitution which would restore the power of the monarchy and the voting rights of the economically disenfranchised. Threatened by her attempts to abrogate the Bayonet Constitution, pro-American elements in Hawaii overthrew the monarchy on January 17, 1893. The overthrow was bolstered by the landing of U.S. Marines under John L. Stevens to protect American interests, which rendered the monarchy unable to protect itself.

Because American merchants and financial interests always pre-empt Democracy and national autonomy. These very same people engineered the McKinley campaign, and then orchestrated the Spanish-American War in 1898. You are a fool if you think it really had anything to do with an explosion on the Battleship Maine that was anchored in Havana.

One hundred and 3 years later ....

Really nice website for commentary and information

Mockpaperscissors.com is a really nice web-blog that I just discovered. Good writing and good information too.

Update on previous World Series prediction

Oh my those Cleveland Indians are ending the year hot hot hot. Currently going for win number 19 tonite. In the modern baseball era, after 1900, the longest win streak "including a tie" goes to the 1926 Giants (yea buddy). The longest streak "not including a tie" belongs to the 1935 Cubs. OMG my two favorite teams. In 3rd place, the 2002 Oakland Athletics won 20 in row.


[SOURCE: wikipedia ]

I remember that win streak, back when Miguel Tejada was the man, hitting .308 with 34 homers and whooping 130 rbi's. Eric Chavez hit .275 with 34 homers and 109 rbi's along with his Gold Glove D at 3B. Barry Zito, Mark Mulder, and Tim Hudson anchored the rock solid Pitching statff. Oakland had a good team, and would have gone to the World Series were it not for the incredible defense and pitching of the New York Yankees. They had the Yanks down 2 wins to zero in the playoffs, and yet New York came back. One amazing Derek Jeter play at the plate. That was the last time the A's ever came close as sniffing the WS.

So much for "Money ball". What a ludicrous joke.

Anyway, I have to update my predictions. It's gonna be Cleveland versus the Diamondbacks. I would love the Cubs reunion but the D'backs have been magical this year, and have the bullpen and pitching staff to compete in the playoffs. Especially since they got JD Martinez, he who recently hit 3 homers in a game for the AZ win. The two hottest teams in September will end up in the World Series is what I say.

I still love the Brewers, but it's hard to compete when your number one pitcher Jimmy Nelson goes down for the season with a rotator cuff injury. I had him on all my fantasy teams too. Major suck-ation. I immediately picked up Brewer rookie Brandon Woodruff hoping the young stud continues his rookie dominance. I am watching him against the Pirates tonite. His poise and confidence is impressive early on despite getting sabotaged with a first pitch home run by the sly veteran McCutchen. But Woodruff was unfazed, and has now gone 4 innings with no more runs, allowing only 1 walk and 2 more hits. And that walk could have been a strikeout had the umpire called the low pitch that was a strike.

Indians vs. Diamondbacks is my call for the World Series.

Updated World Series predictions

Well now look at those Indians and Diamondbacks go with their consecutive victories. It is a secret pleasure that the D'backs victories came at the expense of the Dodgers.

Hmmm. Me-thinks that it might very well be the Indians vs. the D'backs this year. Both of them are power house team offenses in addition to having good bullpens. The Dodgers pitching staff is falling apart, and I am sadly down on the Brewers with my man Jimmy Nelson suffering a shoulder rotator cuff injury. However, I still cannot write off the Brew-crew this year. All they have to do is get into the playoffs and then you never know.

Xiuhtezcatl Martinez

He is a seventeen year old indigenous climate change activist who was raised in Boulder, Colorado. His ancestry dates back to the Aztecs. I love his long hair.

Here he is on the Bill Maher show, Friday 8 September 2017



What he says in this segment about Cows and Dairy has me thinking. I eat Sour Cream, certain kinds of dairy-based cheese (in addition to goat-based cheese), and put 2 or 3 fluid ounces of Half-n-Half in my coffee every day. Maybe twice a month I might eat anywhere between 4 to 12 ounces of beef.

It is true that raising cattle necessitates growing lots of grain to feed them and using tremendous amounts of water. It is true the methane releases from cattle is more than automobiles. However, I have always thought that the problem with the modern food situation is that so many people eat more food than they need to because the way they eat is completely out of metabolic balance. Dumping all that sugar into our bloodstream, or all the processed foods that become sugar in the bloodstream, forces us to eat more than we need because our bodies are too busy freaking out from all the blood sugar to utilize the fats and proteins efficiently. Then there are misconceptions about fats that lead people to eat "low-fat" diets which deprive them of the ability to effectively absorb minerals and vitamins. The "fast-food" industry is more responsible for the situation Xiuhtezcatl and Maher describe here, in my opinion. We do not need to eat a hamburger every single day, or even 3 times a day -- as is the case for some folks.

But I agree with Xiuhtezcatl completely. It doesn't have to be this way. You do get to choose how to eat 3 meals a day. Laws could be mandated to make factory production illegal, just like the Jewish community made decisions about what foods are Kosher. It's about long term solutions to the inevitable problems when you use an industrial complex solution to the food distribution system.

Three Hurricanes at once

Behold. Hurricane Katia hovering around Veracruz, Mexico. Hurricane Irma barrelling towards Florida and freaking out 30 years National Weather Service professionals. And then here comes Hurricane Jose following in the path of Irma.



WTF. This is amazing.

OMG

This thing is going to destroy Florida. 225 mph wind gusts and sustained 180 mph winds. When the average temperature of the water raises 1.2 degrees Fahrenheit, that means it rises higher in other areas and is lower in others due to the nature of averages. Hurricanes get more energy from higher temperature water. These storms are not only more frequent, but also more virulent.

In 50 years, Florida will be under water and the Gulf Coast will become a huge ghost town. New Orleans is very likely to gone, part of the vast swamp South of Lake Pontchartrain. It saddens me to say that because New Orleans is such a special place, but never let your emotions get in the way of your science, otherwise you might become an evangelical zealot.

Fact: the seas are rising 3 times more than anticipated. Archeological excavations of ancient coastal cities are finding times in the past when the sea rise was awesome and sudden and vast. We measly humans are suddenly realizing that the seas are likely to rise at least 200 feet in the next 50 to 100 years.
