Journal Journal: Hey Slashdor Conservatives - You Forgot Something! 8

So your new BFF has the white house, and your team has the house and senate. They've shown a mastery for grandstanding and overall work-avoidance. But there is an important bit that has been conveniently ignored this past few months that we were previously told was so mind-shatteringly important.

Benghazi!

SlashCons were practically tripping over each other the past several years to see who could come up with the newest excuse to spend more millions of dollars on the investigation. They were certain that there was something in there worthy of criminal prosecution of Obama, Clinton, their spouses, their children, their pets, and their furniture.

Soooooooo ... where is the investigation? Where is the prosecution? If there was something criminal done, it was still done. It didn't go away, it still needs to be prosecuted, right? We were told it was of the utmost importance before - vastly more important that silly constitutional duties like holding hearings for SCOTUS appointments or anything like that.

Come on, bring it! What are you afraid of all of a sudden?

Relationship Change

JesseMcDonald (536341) has made you their foe.

My best guess is it has something to do with the front page article on Universal Basic Income where I dared to point out that this site has become a conservative echo chamber. Based on their slashdot page it appears that "Jesse" is a bit of a libertarian...

Journal Journal: A geeky, Catholic, pro-life plan to reduce GCC 4

They tell us global climate change is caused by atmospheric carbon. Based on plant ability to sequester atmospheric carbon, I suggest the following methodology for sequestering carbon away from the environment for long periods of time.
  1. Plant native, drought resistant, edible plants on every available surface with sun. They need to be native and drought resistant because they will only be watered with rain.
  2. Have lots of babies. At least 10 children per family, whenever possible.
  3. Encourage the mortal sin of gluttony. Ideally everybody should die of an obesity related illness and should weigh in at over 200 lbs at death.
  4. Discourage cremation at death, encourage full body ground burial in metal caskets encased in concrete to prevent accumulated carbon from escaping back into the atmosphere.
  5. Close sections of graveyards when full, and plant native drought resistant edible plants on top of the graves, to accumulate more carbon for sequestration.

Journal Journal: Hate crimes in Seattle U Dist 3

So, the Neo-Nazis are getting bolder in the U Dist. Was going to lunch with a friend and ran into one who yelled various threats and racist aspersions at me. Apparently he had been doing this for quite a while, and others had called 911 too. He was obviously trying to provoke a physical reaction (my friend is Filipino) from me but I was pretty calm, since I know what to do. This is why you have to have leaders who don't promote garbage like this, it encourages the loons.

Just after me, he did a similar thing to a young couple and the guy started brawling with the male of the couple.

I blame the President and his VP Trump.

Journal Journal: POTUS Emeritus Alfred E Neuman on Trump 7

Bush's comments came after a prominent Republican in Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa of California, called for a special prosecutor to investigate whether Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election and was in touch with Trump's top advisers during the campaign.

Bush said he would trust Senate Intelligence panel Chairman Richard Burr to decide if a special prosecutor is necessary.

But, Bush added, "I think we all need answers ... I'm not sure the right avenue to take. I am sure, though, that that question needs to be answered."

Indeed our world has now been turned upside-down. Not only does Trump make GWB look intelligent and well-spoken, he even makes him look presidential or diplomatic. While we already knew a while ago that the GOP took such a hard right turn that it would reject Reagan himself as a commie, now they've dove headfirst so enthusiastically into the loonie bin that Bush seems like a born leader and statesman.

Journal Journal: ACLU T-Shirts... 11

The ACLU is selling T-Shirts with their logo that says "Dissent is Patriotic".

That's adorable.

Especially after telling us over the last 8 years that dissent was racist.

Journal Journal: So what was Milo's book Dangerous supposed to be about? 8

On my way home from work I couldn't seem to escape news coverage of the "conservative provocateur" having his book canceled after being recorded praising pedophilia.

What I couldn't seem to figure out for anything though is what his canceled book was actually supposed to be about. The Amazon entry for it only told me its length, title, and author; not a single word about its content - and that Amazon entry is now gone. Some of the news coverage was bragging about how well it was doing in pre-sales - did he really sell a huge number of books based only on his name and an exceptionally vague title?

Journal Journal: Seattle is Resistance 3

So, for those of you don't realize it, I'm a catalyst. I've fought against my basic nature for years, but it's what I do.

and right now, my job is saving America.

No pay, hard work, it's connecting stuff, using some ancient protocol builds that are in everything to bypass security that never did work, and providing little pushes that get things done.

Expect more. Just starting.

It's immaterial if you know I used to have a four digit slashdot account and spaced my old password from my old account at one of the first ISPs, or that I used to hack things before the USE*NET wars, or was there at the start of the events that created EFF and all that.

I just do things. Never for personal gain.

This is one of those times.
