You Will Be Shocked at How Ignorant Americans Really Are
What Americans don’t know and don’t understand is quite an obstacle to progress.
AlterNet / By Marty Kaplan
If you think the widening chasm between the rich and the rest spells trouble for American democracy, have a look at the growing gulf between the information-rich and-poor.

I’ll take solace in the bit about about our self segregation into news ghettos is a myth.
The one part I don’t like about it is it really doesn’t address readers of the news. I don’t watch any news, except for clips online. But I read read at least an hour a day online, no where near the 90 seconds.

Lies, Nonsense and Totally Off-the-Wall Behavior — 10 Doozies from the Nutty Right Wing This Week
Atheists can’t serve the hungry and the devil has been very, very busy.
Some really crazy things came out of the mouths of the frothing right wing this week —
Life under austerity
For more than a hundred years, coal anchored families to the mountain hollows of eastern Kentucky. But a dying mining industry, and government austerity, has left folks chasing any rumor, any scrap, any whiff of a job that’s still to be had.
Slide Show ; http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/life-under-austerity
This austerity bullshit is really hurting our entire country right now, especially by limiting job growth.

Good morning Major !!! How’s everything out your way this morning?
Good Morning Wav!,,,pretty quite,,,no Solar Eclipse,,,to overcast this am
Is that Bones??,,,your av??
Yes it is! I love her character, especially when she does her trade mark line “I don’t know what that is”. She would probably say overcast is a good thing, you don’t want to burn out your retina.
I watch Bones 😆 ,,her character is great!!
Yeah, once you get past all the soupy guts, it can be entertaining.
Gotta make a run to the store,,,back in a bit!!
Pick up some coffee while you’re there 🙂

The vetting process for Romney’s VP choice, was done in code, out of fear of Chinese hackers.
Known as “Project Goldfish.” Each of the potential candidates were given an aquatic codename.
This article gives some really fascinating insight into
Christie aka “Pufferfish.”
“The Hunt for Pufferfish”
Didn’t Romney call him blowfish ? Same thing I guess.
Hi there TG, How are you this fine Sunday morning ?
Ooops this was supposed to be a reply to TG above.
“Blowfish”…. I do remember something like that.
I was hoping to sleep in this morning, but woke up very early.
Hope your Sunday is going well.
Hi TG, the only thing I like about going back to standard time is that you gain back that lost hour. So I actually got up “early” this morning myself 🙂
I woke up at 7:00 AM, but it was actually 6:00 AM.
Oh well… if I’m going to experience a long day, I’m glad that long day is Sunday. : )
Yeah, just relaxing, it’s a beautiful morning here, very peaceful, and I’m in such a mellow mood 🙂
Personally, I think Republican politicians are more like Bigfoot.
I’ve heard some “good” ones exist, but I’ve never actually seen one.
I can’t think on any actual living examples either…. They’re like Dinosaurs existed in the distant past, and some crazy people talk of them still being around in remote, far-off places, but nah nobody sane really believes that.

Rand Paul challenges Rachel Maddow to a duel?
My money’s on Rachel.
did he just actually threaten to shoot Rachel Maddow?
” Paul wouldn’t challenge anyone to a duel, because that would be insane, or immoral, or insane and immoral, right? Wrong. The reason Rand Paul gave for not wanting to race Rachel Maddow to see who could shoot whom in the face first was that ‘ can’t do that, because I can’t hold office in Kentucky then.'” (Media ITE)
mine too! without his lunatic followers he’s nuthin!
hah!!! Rachel just hit him back, hard!!
Why, why, why did I have to look. Oh cheese an’ crackers, I had to go to the otherplace and post on that damn thread. Now I need to go pick up another white chip. 😐
Hey my post came up in under 30 minutes. That’s new. Will wonders never cease.
It is a bit wonky. I had one post almost immediately but it seems that responses to other people’s posts take forever.
Hi there Orcas, Well prior to this I think I was on some mandatory goto pend list. And usually I wouldn’t see my comments until the next day. Maybe because I was away for so long they stopped flagging me.
Saw your post, Waverly – niiiiiccce!!
I don’t know about white-chips, but if it’s related to visits Over There I probably have a cargo-container full of them by now…
Mebbe I can build a shed (or a condo)
Hi RF, thanks for the compliment.
The white chip (used in most 12 step programs) represents the first marker on one’s road to recovering from an addiction. Several weeks back I swore off HP, but as you have just observed, I relapsed back into my addiction. These things happen 🙂
Oh, now I understand. Thanks!
Guess I am still working on my first one, I keep falling off the wagon…
Yeah, I know whatcha mean.

alittle late, but had to show it.
Oh, that is cute, what a dish !
Hi MS, how’s everything your way today ?
cold, boring, same-ol, same-ol. what’s a body to do?
Oh, my goodness.
“World’s Biggest Jellyfish”
hmmm..first comment is that it is probably a hoax.
It probably is.
” The largest recorded specimen (Lion’s mane) found washed up on the shore of Massachusetts Bay in 1870, had a bell (body) with a diameter of 7 feet 6 inches (2.29 m) and tentacles 120 ft….” (I wouldn’t want to encounter a jellyfish of that size.)
“The state’s energy regulator, the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC), is expected to begin hearings on the net-metering proposal in November. Four of the five commissioners are members of ALEC, the group backed by fossil fuel interests, major corporations and the ultra-conservative Koch brothers. In 2012, ALEC dedicated its efforts to dismantling renewable energy laws around the country and though they failed completely in that effort, leaked documents from their recent annual meeting indicates they have no intention of backing down from the fight against clean energy.”
(My disgust with ALEC and the Koch brothers knows no bounds.)
“In Heated Arizona Solar Battle, Top Regulators Tied To ALEC”
They need to be ELIMINATED! that is alec, and the kochs, not clean energy. I find myself more and more in favor of assassination and domestic terrorism if it’s against these SCUM.
Agreed! They should be tried as murderers with intent to harm civilians with dirty energy. Lung cancers are expected to rise due to more small particulates in the air.
Good eveninng, Captain.
and a good evening to you too.
He dude. How goes it? I’m working on a physiology paper on hyperthyroidism.
Hey Copper, my cat has that.
Oh what people (apologists) like to claim that batshit-crazy-ann-coulter has! I think it’s more likely “she’s” a dr. mengele experiment gone wrong.
Well that would certainly explain those bug-eyes of hers. You can’t miss ’em for crying-out-loud.
interesting stuff. Working in a general practice at the moment so get to see quite a bit of it and all its random clinical presentations.
So Captain, was your Friday night on the town everything you’d hoped it would be ?
It was a good fun night, they almost always are 😀
I take this as good news. Opening weekend, Ender’s Game makes $28 million; the film cost more than $110 million to make and generally, most movies earn 30- to 40-percent of their box office during the opening weekend. So “Ender” is going to struggle to break even … and hopefully that’s the first and last time Hollywood will buy a story from that homophobe Orson Scott Card.
Thor made *109 million!* internationally for its opening weekend.
The Hunger Games sequel is expected to make $180 million for its opening weekend.
thanks, I was not aware of this. you should bring it to the new page.
