Inspection- Neutering the American Voter

 While progressives, dems and trolls on Facebook keep up the blame game the arguments and invective maybe be not just past tense, but beyond any point worth arguing... at least for now. Trump is appointing the king of election fraud to "fix" our elections.

RESISTANCE in the age of TRUMP

"When a tiny cabal seizes power, monarchists, communists, fascists,or corporate, it creates a mafia economy and finally a mafia state. Donald Trump is not an nominally , he is the grotesque visage of a collapsed democracy. Trump and his coterie of billionaires generals, half wits, christian fascists, criminals, racists and deviants, play the roll of the Snopeses clan in some of William Faulkners novels. the Snopeses fill the power vacuum of a decayed south and ruthlessly seize control from the degenerated former slave holding aristoctic elites.

Job Creation

If low salaries we're job creators, excessive CEO pay has a lot room for cutting.

Cannabis reverses aging processes in the brain

Researchers report THC can help restore memory and reverse some of the effects of brain aging in mice. The findings could open new avenues for treating dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Cannabis reverses aging¹ processes in the brain
EurekAlert! University of Bonn 8-May-2017 ¹


This morning I was watching Deutsche Welle, a news channel broadcasting 24/7 in English. They announced that members of a right wing faction of their military had been arrested and charged with terrorism. Apparently a number of military officers had planned to kill numerous top German political officials and blame it on Syrian refugees, in attempt further divide the country and ramp up racism.

Here is the link to a more indepth report.


I think one of the reasons today's psychopaths find the work environment especially conducive to their pathology, is because capitalism has evolved into a sociopathic system, where emotion, morality, empathy, kindness play no part in success, in fact just the opposite. Therefore what could be a better environment for a true psychopath. The Australian university study found one in five CEO's of today's businesses psychopathic.

Chat - getting back in

I gather there are people who are unable to get into chat still, as hipchat continue zapping passwords that were potentially compromised in a hack a couple of weeks ago.

If you are affected, and you can still use the email address with which you inititally joined the chat, then go to and enter your email address to trigger a password reset email for your Atlassian ID account.

If the email address is dead, then you will need to sign up to the chat again with a new email address.


Disproportionate number of the heads of the worlds largest corporations are psychopaths. A Study out of Bond University in Australia claims 20% of CEO's are true psychopaths.

'Psychopaths are incapable of experiencing basic human emotions and feelings of guilt, remorse, or empathy', which makes them at times ideal for the corporate board room, where the bottom line is all that matters. "This is why tobacco companies market their products to kids when they can. There are no socialist psychopaths."
