  1. Assisting to strengthening my community, city and state in every way possible. There already is massive pushback from other elements in the city and state. There is the inevitable sea level rise that affects every coastal community across the globe. But, if we have the will, there are engineering mitigations. Local EPA regs have to be amended and strengthened for the entire region, so we can continue to have food. But others will then decide to take us over and make us the same desolaton of smaug as everywhere else.
  2. Why do you all persist in projecting authoritarianism into the future, when it is here? Domestic terrorism reigns, certain it can operate w/impunity, as with the groups of fully kitted out Proud Boys charging into libraries all month to terrorism children at story hour, crafts and games sessions, with a theme of tolerance, i.e. Gay Pride, howling and screaming to the children they were being groomed by pedophiles -- and taking selfies of Themselves doing so, and posting on Twitter.
  3. You mean people actually invite back somebody who does this? I think the worst that ever happened in my own home from somebody getting too drunk, was the guy smashing into our Christmas tree and destroying the lights and ornaments. He was never invited back. OTOH, we hadn't known him well before then, but he provided every reason not to get to know him more. One does cut a whole lot more slack for close friends, and old friends.
  4. Mark Meadows’ associate threatened ex-White House aide before her testimony It was the second warning Cassidy Hutchinson had received before her deposition, cautioning her against cooperating with the panel https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/jun/30/jan-6-hearings-trump-mark-meadows-cassidy-hutchinson-threatened
  5. No herd immunity here. Where’s the herd immunity? Our research shows why Covid is still wreaking havoc Danny Altmann ‘Living with the virus’ is proving much harder than the early vaccine success suggested: this fight is far from over Danny Altmann is a professor of immunology at Imperial College London "Rather than a wall of immunity arising from vaccinations and previous infections, we are seeing wave after wave of new cases and a rapidly growing burden of long-term disease. What’s going on? The latest scientific research has some answers." https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/jul/01/herd-immunity-covid-virus-vaccine
  6. New York City will offer Paxlovid at mobile testing sites, a first in the U.S. Mayor Eric Adams says that offering immediate prescriptions to people who test positive at the mobile sites will help address concerns over inequities in distributing antiviral treatments. https://www.nytimes.com/live/2022/07/01/world/covid-19-mandates-vaccine-cases#nyc-paxlovid-covid-treatment
  7. 'More than a dozen' Trump allies offered free legal services by key political action committee: report https://www.rawstory.com/more-than-a-dozen-trump-allies-offered-free-legal-services-by-key-political-action-committee-report/ https://www.nytimes.com/2022/06/30/us/trump-jan-6-lawyers-witness-pressure.html The New York Times report is quite long; here's the first part:
  8. BTW, it's really important to notice who is not there at Buffy's Thanksgiving table.
  9. But the inevitable strongest (white) man of all shall arrive, like Napoleon, and scrap the whole thing, in favor of his own Napoleonic Code. At least it got rid of the feudal, aristo system for good, supposedly, except for him and his over all of it authority, as the emperor. Think of some of those books of Orson Scott Card's, in which the inevitable (white) Amurikan reformer for the better tyrant does the same. In detail Very detailed.
  10. Something else the writers couldn't know then, the characters who would be still standing for the finale, are all at the table, even Spike, even if he can't eat the turkey, and even Angel, even though he can't come in and be with the others, other than in spirit.
  11. This nation has declared itself an oligarchy of The 5 on SCOTUS, taking the place of POTUS, House, Senate and all state law. We R Russia.
  12. Ya, I immediately thought if They, following Reagan's precedent of changing the names of things as the way to make unpleasant information disappear, are calling it relocation -- remember when They decided to call the people who arrived via the Middle Passage, work immigrants? -- from now on we call anti-reproductive reichists, forced birthers. I would bet a million dollars this ignoramus never read a slave narrative, one of the great bodies of work in American Literature (which surely are not allowed in the curriculum as They devise it). The women knew they were subjected to rape and forced birth. Some of them had knowledge and ways. Mary Gaffney, from TX, among those who were born into US slavery, was interviewed in the Federal Writers Project of the 1930's. She forthrightly spoke of chewing cotton root so he couldn't get any babies from her. He whipped her, even, because she wasn't reproducing -- she knocked out a fellow slave he'd sent in to force her into sex -- but that made her all the more determined to never ever reproduce.
  13. All month this is the book one cannot escape from the endless online chatter about. Everything I Need I Get From You: How Fangirls Created the Internet as We Know It (2022) by Kaitlyn Tiffany. https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/kaitlyn-tiffany/everything-i-need-i-get-you/ https://www.npr.org/2022/06/15/1105191708/fangirls-rule-the-internet-in-everything-i-need-i-get-from-you https://www.nytimes.com/2022/06/08/books/kaitlyn-tiffany-everything-i-need-i-get-from-you.html https://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/how-fans-created-the-voice-of-the-internet https://www.goodreads.com/en/book/show/58772737-everything-i-need-i-get-from-you and etc. etc. etc.
