if you build on a volcano...

...and it erupts and destroys your property, should we directly or indirectly be forced to financially help you rebuild or to even save your ass?

...I don't think so...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Florida_hurricanes_(2000%E2%80%93present)

...what do you think...

...

if putin uses nukes...

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11234251/America-hit-Russias-military-devastating-strike-Putin-nukes-Ukraine-says-general.html

...looks like we can do a lot of Russian military damage without resorting to nukes...

...ever wonder what the situation would look like today if putin's good friend trump had won in 2020 (or might win in 2024)?

...would trump still believe putin over our intelligence services?

...probably...

amazing...

...last weekend was Labor Day weekend...absolutely nothing on broadcast TV about Labor, Unions, their history, what's happening today or advice creating a Labor Union...just regular shitty programming...

...last week the Queen of England died and this weekend we've had nothing but 24/7 wall-to-wall broadcast TV coverage on the Queen and her royal family...this will probably continue for weeks to come...

...Labor/Unions have meant a lot to me over my lifespan providing me and others with an equitable, prosperous, participatory life...

...so, something very important to a working person like me is totally ignored while something totally meaningless to a working person like me is jammed down my throat...

...no wonder why working people like me hate the slimy corporate media in this country...fuck 'em

...absolutely amazing...

Red states are making me Blue...

...how's this

Let's have a Blue State Sub-Constitutional Convention. We would adhere to our current federal Constitution but fill in it's political, social and monetary gaps as we saw fit. The Blue State Sub-Constitution would bring Blue States additional support and rights not currently being provided by the federal Constitution. We would fight any and all expansion of federal spending or power.

Blue States doing business in a brother Blue State would receive special governmental favors, benefits and treatment. We would have a rotating Blue State sub-capitol and parliament meeting regularly under a Blue State Sub-Constitution.

Like NATO, a Red State turning Blue could join the Blue States only if all member Blue States agreed. Any Blue State turning Red could also be ejected by a unanimous vote.

Let's become the United Blue States of America and tell those stonewalling, money sucking, social managing fascist Red States to fuck-off.

...I like it...

Who's more powerful...

...trump or the U.S. government?

...it's been almost two years since trump tried to steal the election and he's not in prison or even close to being imprisoned...

...I say trump's more powerful...

...what do you say?

...

price to be paid...

...have you seen your natural gas bill?

...have you seen your electric bill?

...have you seen your grocery bill?

...have you seen your rent bill?

...have you seen your property tax bill?

...have you seen the price of gasoline?


...take gasoline...where's the windfall profit tax and a government rebate check to everyone with a driver's license?

...if you think November is going to be peachy, you're whistling past the graveyard...

...hang in there...

good stuff...

...looks like manchin got lots of good stuff for all his balking and holding-out...

...maybe we and Bernie should do some balking and holding-out for some good stuff of our own...

...I sure would like to see a real increase in our Social Security with vision and dental added to Medicare...

...fuck deficit reduction...when the pukes return you know they'll just piss away any deficit reduction, our SS increase, vision and dental with tax breaks for the billionaires like they always do...

...what's fair is fair, if manchin can do it we can do it...

...we need some good stuff...

...

Helpful advice from a 74 year old...

...I'm going to offer my fellow seniors some helpful advice...

1) don't try to look young, it doesn't work...at best it comes off looking like, 'putting lipstick on a pig'...don't dress 'young' or groom 'young' and try to act your age...

2) don't be scary or offensive...shave/shower regularly, trim those nose/ear hairs, get adult haircuts and do something with those out-of-control bushy eyebrows...and by the way, your 3-day-old clothes are not clean no matter what your nose might be telling you...

3) if you're over 65 and you've put on perfume or cologne and you can smell it, you've put on way too much...you're gagging people around you...

4) at home, in your car or on a bicycle, don't BLAST YOUR 60's MUSIC...nobody wants to hear it...even I don't want to hear it...

5) don't tell old stories from the past...most people have no reference...just because nothing's basically changed in your life during the last 30 years is no reason to bore people to death...

6) don't offer dated 'expert' advice on anything, it's Out Of Date Advice...just because your advice is very familiar to you it's probably meaningless or useless to others...

7) when you travel by foot or by car, try to act like you're actually going someplace 'today'...taking 15 minutes to navigate a store's entrance is unacceptable...use Amazon...

8) don't get angry or hostile with inanimate objects...they do not hate you...they are not out to get you...

9) don't keep repeating yourself...saying the same thing day after day and acting like you're saying something new is extremely tedious...people can only take so much before they puke...

10) last but not least, when asking someone for help, wait at least 10 minutes before asking again...


...all good advice...

regarding Putin: what do you think?

...I say,

...let it be known publicly and in the highest circles of the Kremlin that any Russian nuclear attack on the West will produce a complete and immediate retaliatory response that will turn Russia, it's friends and allies, into a nuclear cinder...prepare the nuclear arsenals accordingly and be prepared to use them...

...then let it be known publicly, NATO will immediately prepare a Russian invasion force to de-Nazify Russia and remove the dictator Putin from power with conventional armament...

...let the Russian generals decide who they love more, Putin or Russia...let the Chinese leadership decide who they love more, Russia or China...the world order will not withstand endless years of Putin and his crimes...our democratic coalitions will fall apart...

...I believe if left unchecked or unaddressed Putin will ultimately drag the world into a nuclear holocaust anyway...

...we need to call Putin's bluff and remove him from the world's stage like we did Hitler...Putin will continue to blackmail and expand his aggression until we stop him...

...it's like 1939 all over again but with nukes...

...

hey, guns America...

...either do something about guns or die...

...I'm tired of hearing politicians and talking-heads speak of all the 'unimaginable' gun tragedies...they're not unimaginable, they're quite imaginable, they're daily imaginable...

...I'm tired of hearing about the crazy person, the illegal gun, the legal/illegal purchase, the incompetent police officer, when it's your military grade weapon that's our problem...

...I'm sick of all the meaningless prayers and hand-wringing for the victims when you know damn well most in this country would rather see people die than see their guns restricted...

...maybe the day will come when local governments in self-defense will just ignore the Constitution, 2nd Amendment and the Supreme Court and starting confiscating military grade weapons to protect their communities...

...until then, please shut-up, you're killing me...
