It seems best suited for you. We are tired of you and quite frankly don’t even care. The Pres has work to do. You allegedly got paid more than you deserve, so go away. ~ @StormyDaniels “Go back”?… I shoot a movie EVERY month. I never stopped working in the adult business.

Then it began shutting down the communities where harassers and conspiracy theorists thrived. @andrewmarantz reports on the social network’s efforts to curb toxicity: Reddit and the Struggle to Detoxify the Internet @chamblee54 you said u/penisfuckermcgee on podcast sixteen words later, you bleeped the n-word it is good to have standards ~ “The Secretary had every intention of staying”: State’s shocking Tillerson statement ~ eg01_02 ~ Plato, Phaedrus and now you, who are the father of letters, have been led by your affection to ascribe to them a power the opposite of that which they really possess. For this invention will produce forgetfulness in the minds of those who learn to use it, because they will not practice their memory. Their trust in writing, produced by external characters which are no part of themselves, will discourage the use of their own memory within them. You have invented an elixir not of memory, but of reminding; and you offer your pupils the appearance of wisdom, not true wisdom, for they will read many things without instruction and will therefore seem to know many things, when they are for the most part ignorant and hard to get along with, since they are not wise, but only appear wise. ~ pessimist podcast ~ In final appeals, Stocking Strangler attorneys say Ga. is about to execute innocent man ~ Carlton Gary last meal ~ Georgia “stocking strangler” denied clemency on eve of execution ~ Gary dna evidence ~ ‏ @KimKierkegaard I am so excited to get back to my natural dark hair after the false & foolish hope of being blonde KimKierkegaardashian ~ @tsengputterman Beware the man of color who considers the white woman an acceptable outlet of his misogyny. ~ The real problem with the New York Times op-ed page: it’s not honest about US conservatism ~ When you say the internet is dumbing down culture, you are saying the same thing Plato said about the written word. The spell check suggestions for dumbing are numbing, dumping ,dubbing ,plumbing. ~ I quoted this post. I like to start my paragraphs with a link, and will quote the first few words, and see what google finds. That is how I found this post. I see that you are still posting to this blog. The blog format… state of the art in 2004, considered obsolete in 2018… is yet another example of the changing nature of recorded communication. ~ California to Georgia: Trust [some] Black Women ~ Explanation and apology: The multipolar spin: how fascists operationalize left-wing resentment ~ Dylann Roof’s Sister Arrested After Bringing Weapons to School Walkout ~ toxic masculinity ~ downtown projects ~ I Went Undercover In The Alt-RightThe last line: “By coming to know my enemy, I came to know myself.” Maybe the problem is seeing your neighbor as the enemy. ~ Tony’s Talks: An Anti-gay Cardinal And A Gay Prostitute Are Bedfellows In Italy ~ Phil Lesh w Terrapin Family Band and John Scofield The Capitol Theatre, Port Chester NY March 15 2018 ~ And again, more mis-attributed quotes online ~ Photogrammar ~ Let’s Go Play In Traffic: 1957 ~ YouTuber Beloved By The Alt-Right Bragged About Sexually Assaulting A Drunk Woman ~ endonym map ~ peaches records handprints But after the company filed for bankruptcy in 1981 and the Atlanta store closed, the prints were unceremoniously destroyed, says Cochran, “smashed to bits in a single afternoon.” ~ Rainer Werner Fassbinder (1945-1982) ~ Towards a truer multicultural science education: how whiteness impacts science education ~ @RealPeerReview Meanwhile in Cultural Studies of Science Education ~ McCabe’s Firing Wasn’t Political.

I told him not to worry, there will probably be a live stream. ~ It is a slippery slope. First you hate racism, then you hate the racist. The terms have elastic definitions, that change according to the motive of the accuser There is the element of name calling. It is easy to call someone racist. It is done casually. It is tough to refute. ~ @RickyCries You never get a second chance to make a first impression. So if meeting someone goes bad you gotta kill em. Can’t let them go spreading that bad first impression around. ~ March 14 Births Albert Einstein (1879) Hank Ketcham (1920) S.

America lost over 100,000 men, in little over a year of combat participation. Many people thought that America had been duped into participation in that war, and wanted no part of any more European wars. ~ @AmishPornStar1 Why do we call them “designated drivers”… Instead of “people who drive us to drink”? ~ KimKierkegaardashian @KimKierkegaard People say your brows should always match your hair, but I actually think it’s more flattering if they’re dark like your soul ~ @AngryBlackLady is an idiot. ~ words that rhyme: beer, dear, fear, gear, here, jeer, kier, leer, near, pier, queer, rear, tear, year ~ many people pronounce it muff uckers, which may have a clue to the real meaning ~ Stand against hate.

This piece is based on an internet quiz, Dylan Thomas vs. Bob Dylan, where you are given quotes by Bob Dylan and Dylan Thomas, and asked to identify which Dylan said it ~
an alcoholic is one you don’t like ~ who drinks as much as you confess
old age cafeteria morphodite ~ he who seeks work will find a rest

lie in a hot bath sneaking whoredom ~ someone’s boring and i think it’s me

They follow him this way, they follow him that way. It is the resentment, the aggrieved sense of persecution, that they respond to. That’s what US conservatism IS now. ~ @chamblee54 “It is the resentment, the aggrieved sense of persecution, that they respond to.” Liberals/Democrats reinforce this resentment by screaming racist at every opportunity, as well as the condescending attitude from hell ~ @yunus_saima dude, you guys invented a hashtag that reduces an entire side of the political spectrum to a mental disorder. y’all have no moral high ground here ~ “where self control is not welcome” sounds like a typical preacher ~ Which came first, the problem or the sooltiun?

display of a link in this space does not indicate approval of content ~ Stop telling the lie that all queer bars are ‘safe spaces’ for diversity ~ Did Billy Graham Say ‘All Homosexuals Should Be Castrated’? ~ @krassenstein Ann Coulter suggests that we reduce mass shootings with an immigration moratorium and with mass deportations. There has NEVER been an immigrant mass school shooter that I am aware of This is pure racism. @chamblee54 Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (Джохáр Анзóрович Царнáeв) was convicted of the Boston Marathon bombing. He was born in Dzhokhar Anzorovich. He appears to be Caucasian, so this might not qualify as racism. ~ @jonsteingart This is quite a correction ~ The Associated Press Thinks Jews In Mourning ‘Sit And Shiver’ ~ Correction: School Shooting-Florida story ~ sit and shiver in politico ~ @CaseyCagle I will kill any tax legislation that benefits @Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with @NRA. Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back. ~ @CaseyCagle Discriminating against law-abiding gun owners will not solve the problem #2A #gapol ~ The Casey Cagle Affair Her departure from Cagle’s staff had to do with the fact that this couple was caught in the act at the Capitol in Cagle’s office by a secretary, Laurie Sparks. Dewberry claimed she was “tying Casey’s shoes” under his desk. … Then, to everyone’s surprise, Cagle announces he is dropping out of the race in August 2009 because of a severe degenerative spinal disorder … Cagle’s spinal injury cleared up sure enough so that he could run the 2010 Peachtree Road Race and his statewide campaign. … Recently, another tryst involving female staff members occurred in the 2009 legislative session. The scuffle that ensued ended when the police broke up the fight. Apparently, one young intern who was sleeping with Cagle found out that another staff member was riding the Cagle Express too. An open records request was recently filed seeking information on the incident, which Cagle’s office has subsequently ignored. Instead of thinking about education or jobs, Cagle was engaging in sexual relations with two young female members of his office which allegedly ended in a “Cheaters” style brawl that was only broken up when the police were involved. ~ ‏ @thistallawkgirl Casey Cagle looks like a mad scientist who just figured out how to make cocaine at home ~ @johnpavlovitz Dear #Delta. Keep going. We’re with you. Sincerely, The Vast Majority P.S. @CaseyCagle does not speak for us.

It is election year posturing and showboating. The effects on Delta, Delta employees and vendors, and the rest of the state, are not as important as making Casey Cagle appear to be more conservative than the other idiots running for Governor. ~ These leaders had competition In the case of Malcolm X and Mohandas Gandhi, these differences proved fatal I suspect that every well known leader had a talent for internal battles ~ @SlavojTweezek 10% of philosophers, you know, make the other half look like idiots. ~ There is substance, and there is style.

Bob Dylan and Dylan Thomas are folk philosophers. A love of words, a glory in the uncertainty of life, revelling in bittersweet lyrics. Can you tell which wise words come from which Dylan? “He who seeks rest finds boredom. He who seeks work finds rest”? “He not busy being born is busy dying”? “I can with ease become an ordinary fool. I may be one now”? “I’d much rather lie in a hot bath reading Agatha Christie and sucking sweets”? “People seldom do what they believe in.

Why not explore your poetic side ~ @BoingBoing Olive Garden threatens to sue satirical twitterer for tweet congratulating it for no longer selling AR-15s ~ There was a cease and desist tweet, attributed to lawyers for the Olive Garden. It turned out to be a hoax. This comment exchange was real: “But of course their poor earning report will say “Millennials something something”, and nothing about how they have replaced food with chemical reactions.” ~ “The American Chemical Society demands that you cease and desist your defamatory statements against chemical reactions.” ~ here is the poem from last night at java monkey:

Also, the arrest was in 1947, after she had been performing “Strange Fruit” for a number of years. While I have no doubt that Harry Anslinger was a gnarly piece of work, I think this article exaggerates his influence. (I should note that the same article says that Judy Garland was a heroin addict. While she certainly had a substance problem, I have never heard that it includes heroin. Google was no help with this one.) ~ The Strange Story Of The Man Behind ‘Strange Fruit’ The story of Abel Meerpol is worth telling as well.

I did not hear the infamous facebook post mentioned one time. Maybe it wasn’t that important. When I pointed out the lack of evidence for this post, I was called “racist apologist.” I was told to “examine my whiteness.” I was insulted. I had numerous other facebook posts presented, as though that indicated that the seminal post was genuine. It was a thoroughly unpleasant experience. All you had to do was acknowledge that the post was shaky, and move on. You could have talked about the other issues involved here, but you chose to insult me.

What was the time and date? Is there a cached copy available? Do you realize how easy it would be to fake that screen shot? If an incendiery post like that appeared, why wasn’t it noticed at the time? Supposedly, there has been whispering about Mr. Marsh’s racial values for years. There are various incidents recited now about employees. What put it over the top, and into the awareness of the community, is that screen shot about Barack Obama. Who is the ex-employee who posted it? What were their motives? People think this is what fighting racism looks like. Police brutality, economic opportunity, access to housing, education, and health care…. this is institutional racism. None of this will be affected by hand wringing over facebook posts. This whole thing is fishy. People are so eager to believe an accusation of racism.

Ceremonial Handwringing

In a 13-page opinion, Thomas accused his colleagues of “bending the rules” to show their “concern for racial justice.” “The Court must be disturbed by the racist rhetoric in” the juror’s affidavit and “must want to do something about it,” Thomas suggested. But, he complained, today’s ruling only prolongs the inevitable by sending Tharpe’s case back to the lower courts for a “useless do-over.” And in doing so, he continued, the court delayed justice for Jaquelin Freeman, “the black woman who was brutally murdered by Tharpe 27 years ago.” “Because this Court should not be in the business of ceremonial handwringing,” Thomas lamented, “I respectfully dissent.” ~ The Juror Who Said The N-Word ~ Keith Tharpe And Jaquelin Freeman ~ A juror called this death row inmate the n-word. Now the Supreme Court is sending his case back to the lower courts. ~ Take a Knee Against Trump at the National Championship Game! ~ Supreme Court cites juror’s racism in death penalty reprieve ~ It is not every day that I agree with Justice Clarence Thomas.
