The Sun Still Came Up and the World Continues to Turn

America has spoken. Well some have spoken anyway. Lots to think about on this day when the San Francisco Giants marched down Market Street. (That's why I am a bit late on this post I just had to go to the parade) It was thrilling to be in approximately the same place (minus arms in the air holding cell phones) back in 1958 when the New York Giants turned into the San Francisco Giants. Today as I was standing at Montgomery and Market not able to see a thing, I felt it. Last night's election results became a momentary lapse of emotion.

Health Care

Since now that the republicans have won all the seats that they have and are now touting banners (so to speak) about repealing Obamacare, I would love to see how these people would treat the idea of free birth control to any woman capable of reproduction (any age) who wants birth control to have it.

If they want to scream no, ask them if they are pro-abortion.

Jim Marrs' zombie nation analogy

I am reading Jim Marrs' book, "Trillion-Dollar Conspiracy," and this is what he has to say about our country, USA:

"What does one call a country that seems to be merely mimicking the robust republic it used to be, whose population has been dumbed down by controversial educational programs, drugged out by an ever-growing pharmaceutical industry, and frightened into submission by constant threats of terrorism and economic collapse?"

4X Chase Oranges & Grapefruit

Of all the beautiful fruit and citrus labels once decorating the crates of yesteryear, the most unattractive, hostile, industrially foreboding banner belongs to Chase & Co., an organization later used as an absorbent for WAMU. Note though it says "Four X" there are actually 5 X's inside the triangle.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
