Birds are starving all over the world...


Here's a cheery thought to start the week. All over the world, for the past few years, birds have been starving to death. Some of it is attributable to those clever Chinese climate hoaxsters. Some of it also is attributable to general and casual environmental vandalism. But birds are starving to death all over the world.

(H/t to Ben See—@ClimateBen—on the electric Twitter machine for collecting all the stories.)


Anyone else worried he will declare a National Emergency today?

And that the shutdown will continue? I'm certainly not going to watch or listen, but I will be checking DU and TPM and DailyKos this afternoon...

Mike Pence has a Demon hand!

No, seriously... I'm freaking out a little, because it was caught in a photo.


It's the pic at the signing of the border wall EO. I couldn't figure out how to link to the photo in particular... but it's there. Demon hand, left one even. No joke.

Come to think of it, i'm looking around the circle of those people... they could all be demons.

Anyone got a link?

on how to stream audio for tonight's debate?

My satellite bandwidth can't keep up with live video...

How can i get streaming audio for the debate tonight?

I'm on a satellite dish and streaming video is a mess. I can't seem to find an audio link at CBS... anyone know if NPR will be broadcasting? Should i just turn on my radio and toodle around for it?

Black Monday in Iraq: 46 killed, almost 300 injured in series of attacks

Source: RT

A string of attacks in several parts of Iraq killed 46 and injured almost 300 on Monday. The upsurge of violence came as Iraqis prepare to go to polls for their first election since the withdrawal of US troops.

Officials said bombings hit 12 different areas of Iraq, leaving 46 people dead and making Monday the country's deadliest day since March 19, AFP reported.

According to Itar-Tass, the death toll has already risen to 55 people.

Ten casualties were reported in Baghdad, and insurgents also targeted areas north and south of the capital. The oil-rich city of Kirkuk, where tensions over resources have recently been particularly high, saw nine of its residents killed. The western Sunni city of Fallujah, the former Al-Qaeda stronghold of Baqouba and Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit also saw attacks.

12 different incidents in Iraq today...

Where's the BOOKMARK button?

There's a good list going here... i'd like to find it again.

We should also remember

the quarter million (or more) dead Iraqis while we're at it. Or maybe the millions of people that were displaced, rendered homeless, or ruined in one way or another. War is fucking hell, and if we think the effects are limited to the money we spent and the troops we lost and the "advantages" we may or may not have gained... well then i'd say, we learned NOTHING.

I will welcome our troops home and hope they never have to fight another war (just or unjust). I hope to see troops returning and becoming Public Servants (local, regional, state and fed government)... and that they will use the life-changing experiences they lived through for the "power of good". I hope.
