Tipsy Prince

MBS, the Saudi dictator, appears to kill his critic, Jamal K, on a foreign soil (as if killing is justified anywhere), with complete impunity.

The same dude, killed untold thousands of Yemenis, even kids on a field trip, with, ahh, you got it, complete impunity.

Wonder how this stupidly would look years from now. We’re all asleep, thoroughly desensitized with all this monstrosity.

Kava what?!

There seems to be a good chance that K lied. He lied that he was drunk at times.

High school, college kids do stupid things. It is understandable. Why not say, ‘in my high school and college days, as most College kids do, I have consumed alcohol regularly.’ People would have understood.

A Judge, who became Justice, to lie, and to lie under oath, is bad.

Would everyone turn to the next shiny object and forget about all this or the Supreme Court just made a huge withdrawal of goodwill and respect, acquired over decades? Haven’t they once ruled that discrimination was ok so long as no differences in resources?

Ray Donovan is a damn good show. #

Beginning of the end of politics of division? Let’s hope results from today’s election is the bellwether People of conscious have been waiting for. #

Climate change

The authoritative government report says we’re getting screwed. The Climate is warming and co2 is rising, some parts irreversible.

Yet, the morons say “war against coal is over.”

More than 9/10 scientists in the climate field, jumping up and down saying, “Danger, Danger!”, and our leaders response is: kill renewables and burn more fuel.

Who would have thought that FoxNews and Talk Radio would play such major parts in the death of hundreds of thousands or more from fluids and forest fires etc… by advocating bad science, knowingly or otherwise misleading these poor, uneducated, working class folks, mostly living in middle of the country?

Leadership is educating the masses. Unfortunately, Republican brothers and sisters rather keep their jobs than lead.

Chinas’ and Indias’ decision to go all electric soon is the silver lining in all of this madness. I want America to lead, however. Why? Because it is a special place, born out of ideals, always striving to fix its sins. #

Trump is kicking down all norms, taking the dignity of the office to the outhouse. How refreshing it would have been if he had good causes, and trace of decency. #


Hoping to be back writing regularly here. #

Sometimes I wonder, with all this craziness with the current US administration going on, if we have back in 1933-34 Europe. It is mind bogglingly crazy that the current president could get 1 in 3 American supporting him. How is that possible? There has to be something fundamental I’m not getting. There got to be. #


What the hell?!

Read this morning that our president has 38% approval rating right now.


How could in the hell could that be ?!

I just don’t get it.

Performance proceeds democracy?

Mr. Friedman seems to think so.

Friedman supports the military coup in Egypt.

The logic goes, Morsi, the Islamist guy who was toppled by the military, wasn’t good for Egypt and neighbors, and the situation dictated that there was no time to spare for the next round of elections, three years down the road. Damn with the process; damn with democratic principles, if the guy ain’t good and isn’t performing as expected, he has got to go by any means necessary, is the thinking, outlined by Mr. Friedman.

Bad Choices

I was having a conversation with a person, in the lower socioeconomic scale – per her own distinction – than most, and was talking about purchasing expensive TV cable package for her grandson. And the sad part is that, she took it as a necessity. What kind of stupidity is that?

I’m pretty sure there are a whole bunch of high net worth individuals who think having a Ferrari or something is a necessity. But I would bet the poor gets screwed more, way more, on prices than the rich. Simple example of that would be prices of Groceries in low income neighborhoods, versus their equivalent in affluent ones. The poor pays way more.

In a way, no wonder the poor is poorer and the rich is richer – aside from this being the only reason – paying excessive prices for goods and services.
