Cute dragon voice of world wide wired porn – 2

Warning: Are you wondering what this is all about?
No porn or dragon voice here, just pimping the searches.

Sounds like the infamous “Vietnamization” policy of Nixon: Nixon and his generals said the same thing, but we all saw the frantic evacuation of the U.S. embassy as the last troops left. Karzai and his crooked regime will be on a plane long before the last U.S. soldier leaves. Something has to unify whoever prevails in these fights and that usually means fanatical ideology and ruthlessness beats abstract philosophy and crooks, so Taliban, like the Viet Cong, will probably win.

No justice for retrievers: Neither Labradors or Golden Retrievers have ever won Best of Show at Westminster and a variety of possible reasons are put forth in this article. This drought of show wins occurs despite both breeds being extremely popular with the public, mostly for their intelligence and temperament. A common explanation is that these dogs don’t showboat and upstage their handlers, thus attracting attention. Sheesh, I guess they wouldn’t be Senators or celebrities either.

Paul takes down non-evidence-based worldview of Repugs: No surprises in the article, but it is interesting to be reminded of the variety of ways Repugs attempt to halt any reality- or evidence-based view of policy. After all, if we used facts we might not implement the numerous dogmas that have all been disproven. But the one nugget that seemed most appropriate was:  Last year the Texas G.O.P. explicitly condemned efforts to teach “critical thinking skills,” because, it said, such efforts “have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.” Of course this mostly covers the debate of IDiot creationism or also the revisionist history Texas wanted (where Phyllis Schlafly was put forth as an important historical figure, more than most other minority or women), so anything Texas does really doesn’t count since it’s the actual most aggressively stupid state in the country (a few of the other southern states beat it in a few other ways of stupid).

Mars pond right here on Earth: Fascinating that the most extremely salty pond anywhere on Earth is in the bitterly cold environment of Antarctica and thus closely resembles the conditions on Mars. The extreme deposits of salt actually extract low humidity from the air to create slow drips down to the pond. These flows have exactly the same appearance as the slope lineae on Mars.

And I used to think Alex Castellanos was semi-reasonable: Wow, has he joined the tinfoil hat crowd! What a screed, worthy of insane Ann Coulter, or even Limbot. The evil Kenyan Obama, ready to restore socialism and destroy the paradise Reagan individuality has created where the rich are free to get richer while everyone else gets poorer. This guy appeared on enough TV to fool people into thinking he wasn’t in the conspiracy nutjob camp or the ultrarights. He should be speaking about himself when he believes someone has hidden their true colors.

Americans accept climate change now? I think this article is a little optimistic but with all the weather events occurring and then the frequent media references to AGW in conjunctions seems to gradually be winning the war, at least with undecided, against the denialists. It costs money for the Kochs and others to keep up the denialist drumbeat. Fortunately, the other side, the truth side, isn’t as bought and paid for and so often speaks for free. So it’s hard for the money crowd to win the volume of conversation. And, of course, having Repugs lose some elections helps too. But don’t ever count the denialists out, the support on this is very soft and easy to sway again. Since the denialists own the Repugs and now totally own the religinuts the anti-reality base is fairly large and so, as with much else in the U.S. the war of ideas is fought in a small fraction of the population. The religinuts will never realize how much they’re just doing the work of the carbon lobby since the religinuts want an end to all science in order to continue their delusions. So the seas can rise and flood all of Florida and 27% of this country will believe it’s only the skyman’s punishment for gays and the plains can turn to deserts and the nuts will believe it’s the skyman’s mysterious plan. Facts are irrelevant. But fortunately a few people can be persuaded and maybe that will be enough.

Roger Ailes, political henchman and the sponsor of the nastiest members of the rightwingnut entertainment complex has the audacity to accuse Obama of fomenting “hate” (yes, apparently he said that). Of course this means Obama is pushing reverse racism as well as the infamous class warfare. The least democratic man in the U.S., committed to the destruction of multi-party state, speaks and like everything on his FauxNews it is fiendish lies and balderdash.

So obstructionist Lindsey Graham is just posturing for 2014: Worried about a tea bagger challenger in 2014 Lindsey has to prove he’s not gay and to kick sand in the face of the Kenyan interloper (did we fail to notice he’s black and Lindsey represents the first state of the confederacy, oh shucks, that can’t have anything to do with it). Plus Lindsey is just peeved he can’t get another impeachment going since he learned so much going after Clinton maybe he now thinks he has it figured out. With such children in the Senate no wonder this nation can’t get anything done.
