Speaking of Podcast Addict (where Reg’s suggested podcast download resides), I want to say that their android app is probably my most favorite app of all time, and has been for years. They are constantly adding more and more great features. I pay for the subscription version with a few more features, but the free version is great, too.
The app…[Read more]
I took the following quotes from the “are we fascists yet” [grossly paraphrased] thread [links embedded in the “wrote”s]:
And as i write and think i have to imagine there were a great many that were knew [new diseases] to Europeans.
True, but those diseases took hold in smaller but numerous steps as cultures ventured into…[Read more]
By chance is either a vegan or vegetarian? I assume they’re atheists.
The younger daughter used to be vegan or vegetarian… funny I don’t remember the difference atm. I would be vegan or vegetarian if I felt it suited my health better, but I’ve had more success with Keto. I believe veganism and vegetarianism are good mostly f…[Read more]
Pope, how are your kids engaged in evading the extinction?
My younger daughter’s just finishing a PhD in sustainable agriculture, with an international flavor to it at Tokyo University. While busy earning degrees at universities, she created ediblesci.com and is building it with relationships to like-minded people and…[Read more]
Do you want your offspring to experience the apocalypse?
Both of mine are working to avoid the apocalypse. I still think humanity has a chance to redeem itself. An apocalypse is not a viable option… by definition.
How much you wanna bet he’s gonna do something really stupid before Wednesday.
I think he’s burned too many bridges now. I’ve not seen evidence of any American institutions backing him, other than a minority of law enforcement officers acting with Trump Power in their minds. His biggest militarized backers are private groups, like p…[Read more]
You know, we aren’t talking enough about the causes of the Trumpist movement. He didn’t create it, he awakened it and gave it permission to reveal itself.
Aha, yes, this. And the rest of that post; +1.
[…] Probably true of Trump cultists too. But goddamn i hope it is only a tiny minority. It is scary to contemplate how easily we homos are to manipulation. The plasticity that must have given us a survival advantage is leading us to our extinction.
I’m still hearing of the large numbers of Trump supporters, even after a…[Read more]
The more realistic cause is that some sort of compartmentalization of their ability to rationalize things they are told.
Makes sense, and makes me think of how inner/evolved, tribal tendencies likely nurture and communicate/spread those compartmentalizations. It’s the old Us vs Them theme as a quick justification to avoid the…[Read more]
Here are two, particularly relevant audio segments on today’s NPR Morning Edition show:
- Parler Insists It Would Not Knowingly Tolerate Criminal Activity On Its Site (6:32 long)
- Can The Forces Unleashed By Trump’s Big Election Lie Be Undone? (5:08 long)
The second one analogizes Trump’s lies to fascist lies in world history.
PopeBeanie started the topic One-off podcast episodes in the forum NEWS NEWS NEWS!! Current Events and Favorite News Sources 1 week, 6 days ago
I woke up way too early (4:30AM), tuned into my local public radio station (via my Alexa/Echo speakers in every room), and heard a few, particularly interesting segments on today’s NPR’s Morning Edition show that are particularly relevant to our changing times. Altogether, the following three short stories are about 15-1/2 minutes long:
For some Christians, the Capitol riot doesn’t change the prophecy: Trump will be president
Five years ago, a prophetess Dyrud follows said she’d gotten a message that Trump would be president and save Christian America. Trump would be “as fearless as a lion being robbed of its cubs” and cause the “tall and lofty mountains…
If that is their statement of purpose, it’s ideological suicide, isn’t it?
It looks to me more like an anti-ideology than an ideology, except perhaps where they quote from the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS, ARTICLE 19. But yeah, any kind of promotion of western values might put those promoters at risk, ala Charlie Hebdo. Per…[Read more]
…but I thought I read somewhere that a simple majority is enough to block him from running for office again.
Yes, but unless I’m mistaken, blocking him from running again can happen only after he’s actually convicted. In any case, I’m personally ok with the impeachment even as just a tokenal message, and ok with delaying any…[Read more]
PopeBeanie, no dice on the psychotropics, at least not on their purity or quality. Thanks to both the old Alcohol Prohibition and the U.S. “War On (Some) Drugs” and their implementation worldwide, psychotropics are underground and controlled by organized crime gangs, their quality and purity are iffy at best and over…
If you are too stressed out…then you can always just not engage and avoid news and political discussions.
Umm, speaking for myself, the only thing that would make that possible would be with the aid of some kind of psychotropic agent.
But your suggestions for geographic relocation sound well informed!
You guys just think nothing can go wrong when some people are given absolute control over people’s information and communication. You think you’ll be the last one the allegator gets. That is simply not borne out by bistory.
That’s just one example of a boatload of unhinged assumptions. The post, overall, emoti…[Read more]
After reading the article that they link to about what Woodward said, their use of the word “quantum” sounds too liberal to me. Pairs of oppositely spinning particles is…
The whole thing strikes me as more comical than imminently dangerous. The larger danger might be how these people party together and collude in the future. Most of Cult 45 believe Trump’s declaration that they won and were cheated, and that, imo, puts them into the category of Funny Farm personalities.
I’m also betting that the FBI’s going to be…[Read more]
