Happy Thanksgiving and stay safe with the turkey as well

To all my friends, this year has been a doozy but no matter how you spend Thanksgiving….Be safe. Don’t gather in large crowds or even small ones.  Stick close to the homefront and if you prepare Turkey or Chicken, be sure to sanitize your work area.    I hope you thawed your meat in the…

The Dog Ate My Votes!!!

This appears to be the Presidents theory. The FBI and Veterinarians across the land have been alerted to be on the lookout for one [or more] extremely constipated dog[s]. Hell, our psycho-kitty has a better excuse when sitting near to a recently shredded curtain, “It was the fly’s fault mam” and the evidence can be…

Thank you, America

Throughout the Democratic primaries, the dueling campaigns, and finally the day of November 3rd, I feared the United States would let me down. I have blown the horn of warning to anyone who would listen that this election was not a referendum on Donald Trump it was a referendum on America. It was disappointing that…

Oh no, she didn't.

This is remarkable. Ivanka tweets some gobbledygook about how daddy has reduced greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 10 percent last year.  This is a lie; the emissions drop she references is not from 2019, but 2020. Sneaky she is. And the drop in emissions is due to daddy’s ineptitude in dealing with a pandemic that has…

John Kerry declared war on climate change deniers in an effort named World War Zero.

In 2019 John Kerry was awarded and accepted the Arctic Circle Prize in a speech to an assembly of climate scientists and other Arctic stakeholders in Reykjavik, Iceland. In his dramatic speech, Kerry, who has been nominated by President-Elect Joe Biden, to be the first ‘Climate Tsar’ in a cabinet-level position,  declared a world war zero on climate change…

No shirt, No shoes, No service!

For years, I have been looking for the perfect rebut to the idea that the private sector is always better than the government, and Donald Trump may have given me the answer. I walked to the nearest corner store in my neighborhood, and posted on the front door is a large sign that reads, No…

Laptev and East Siberian sub-sea methane activated.

“It’s gotten so out of whack that we are now looking at survival for our children, not survival of our grandchildren.”, Peter Carter, M.D., – reviewer for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and founder of the Climate Emergency Institute. Dozens of scientists from Sweden, Russia, China, and seven other countries studied methane emissions from Siberia's shallow continental shelves….

Siberia's Laptev and Kara sub-sea methane activated.

“It’s gotten so out of whack that we are now looking at survival for our children, not survival of our grandchildren.”, Peter Carter, M.D., – reviewer for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and founder of the Climate Emergency Institute.

This is an actual headline from Detroit Metro Times ( I can't put it in the headline) Banworthy.

http://www.metrotimes.com/…www.metrotimes.com/… Lock the MF up.   Wow.   The headline reads, “ Lock the motherfucker up”.   Click the link and see. For all the nefarious crap Florida Republicans pulled in 2000 — there was plenty, beginning with a racist purge of the state’s voter rolls — at least that was a legitimately close election. A 537-vote difference, capping a 500,000-vote national…

Depraved and Different

Back in April, President Trump issued a hollow order that meatpacking plants remain open, with safety restrictions to be fashioned by the plants’ owners. Even though the Covid-19 virus was ravaging its employees, places like Tyson Foods threatened them with firings if they dared put their health above a slab of bacon. Yesterday in a story…

The Daily Bucket– The Creek's Roaring and Billy's Watching

Hard rains just swept across NW Oregon and vicinity. The creeks climbed their banks. I watch Rock Creek, and its tributaries that flow through Bethany Lake, ten miles west of Portland Oregon.  Upstream of Bethany Lake, a half mile wide grassy meadow has transformed into a nicely braided  creek with a half dozen channels. Elephant-eye-high…

Blue States, Red States, oh yeah, Black States?

For all the naysayers, and denier(s) who think that Black Lives Matter is an abominable allegory, I point you to the states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia. I have a good friend who lives in Detroit, which is in Wayne County. The board of canvassers which certifies the election results in the county originally deadlocked…
