Once you slacken your truth standards and buy into one kooky conspiracy theory, you'll buy into several or many more. It's a slippery slope into madness.
So far we got 9/11 and that kooky Bin Laden thing documented for you. Madness seems to be beckoning. - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Thinking that there are major problems with the official stories on 9/11 and the 9/11 anthrax attacks doesn't make one a believer in or proponent of any particular conspiracy theory. Sometimes one strongly suspects that matters are being covered up, but you don't know precisely what. Leaders of the 9/11 Commission didn't believe their own report -- they were convinced that they had been given the runaround. And there are still those 28 censored pages on the Saudi connection that are raising questions. - Sean McBride
Ditto for the JFK assassination: asking questions and pointing to problems with the official story is sane. Pushing a particular conspiracy theory in a dogmatic way without concrete and solid evidence -- only speculation -- isn't. - Sean McBride
Here is a kooky conspiracy theory I have bought into explained by a Princeton Physics professor. - Eric Logan

Passive Apathetic
I've been listening to English and American poets reading their own poems for the last hour and I want to kick them all in the nuts. They all sound so self serving and pompous. WTF is with the ego? Blech! Everyone should read like Hemingway. He was crazy and at times an asshole but man he would never prostitute or aggrandize his words like this.

I am doing good. Services are not until next week. I do not think I will be able to really grieve until the services and events are over, and people leave. Walking on the greenway helps.
Good morning, Mike. It's good to "see" you. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Good morning Moto. My walk yesterday was in the 70's it was a good walk. - Mike Nencetti

I cannot imagine the journey you and Beverly shared through her illness. I know grief is something you get through at your own pace. You are in my prayers for comfort. - Janet from FFHound!

When my dad died, I kept in all my grieving until the arrangements were over. That left me in a really weird state of not being able to grieve completely. When my mom died, I didn't try to hold it back. I cried during funeral arrangements, memorial, scattering her ashes and all the way home. Whatever I felt, I just allowed myself to feel, no matter who was around. I felt like I was... more... - Jenny H. from Android

Decoding the Lost Diary of David Livingstone
"The last decade of David Livingstone’s life did not go well for the famed Scottish missionary and explorer. In 1862, his long-neglected wife, Mary, came to join him in Mozambique, but she quickly contracted malaria and died. Nevertheless, he continued on his mission to find a navigable route through the River Zambezi. But in 1864, seven years before his famous run-in with Henry Morgan Stanley, Livingstone was forced to give up and return to Britain after most of his men abandoned him or succumbed to disease. He quickly fell from public grace as word got out about his failure to navigate the river. Eager to redeem his reputation, he returned to Africa two years later, this time in search of the source of the Nile River. But yet again, his assistants soon began deserting him, and added insult to injury by taking all of his food and medicine with them. Starving and crippled by pneumonia, cholera and cutaneous leishmaniasis, Livingstone had no other choice but to turn to Arab traders for... more... - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"The diary begins on March 23, 1871. Forced to team up with the Arab slave traders due to his deteriorating health, Livingstone found—to his dismay—that he was actually beginning to like these men. “The Arabs are very kind to me, sending cooked food every day,” he wrote in April. He told them about the Bible, taught them how to make mosquito nets and drank fermented banana juice with them, which he swore off in the next day’s entry." - Mark H
"On July 15, however, Livingstone was abruptly woken from his stupor. The traders—his friends—went into a busy nearby market and began randomly firing guns into the crowd and burning down surrounding villages, killing at least 300 people, many of them women and children. Livingstone had never witnessed such an atrocity before, and he was “crushed, devastated and spiritually broken,”... more... - Mark H

On the efficiency of slavery and why we don't want to believe in it (from The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism by Edward E. Baptist):
"...during the late antebellum years, northern travelers insisted that slave labor was less efficient than free labor, a point of dogma that most historians and economists have accepted. [...] The same northern observers who proclaimed that slave labor was inefficient had great faith in the idea that free people who were motivated by a cash wage would work harder and smarter than coerced workers. [...] ...after the Civil War, when many cotton planters would pay pickers by the pound at the end of a day’s work, free labor motivated by a wage did not produce the same amount of cotton per hour of picking as slave labor had." - Eivind
"What enslavers used was a system of measurement and negative incentives. Actually, one should avoid such euphemisms. Enslavers used measurement to calibrate torture in order to force cotton pickers to figure out how to increase their own productivity and thus push through the picking bottleneck. The continuous process of innovation thus generated was the ultimate cause of the massive... more... - Eivind
"Some historians have called lashings “discipline,” the term offered by slavery’s lawgivers and the laws they wrote, which pretended that masters who whipped were calmly administering “punishment” to “correct” lazy subordinates’ reluctance to work." - Eivind

We live in capitalism, its power seems inescapable – but then, so did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art. Very often in our art, the art of words. -

The realtor had the bright idea that the house should be power washed so her husband rented a machine and their first attempt was Thursday. It rained hard that day and the machine wasn't working right but even before that, I didn't know they were coming until the guy knocked on my door to tell me to close all the windows.
So I look over the side of the porch, & see they had my hose hooked to my faucet & they're about to be using my water for the job. Hell no! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Power washing in a drought? Abd you wanna use MY water & raise MY rate? - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
The people in the back let them use their water faucet but that's when they found the machine didn't work & then another storm cane through so they left. Came back yesterday finish the job. Again didn't let me know. They accomplished nothing except making a mess they didn't clean up. Paint chips EVERYWHERE all over our wooden stairs and the concrete outside. I didn't even see the mess until I went outside after they'd left. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I called the realtor to let her know about the mess they left so maybe she'll call me back today. I shouldn't have to clean up after inept work and workers. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Geeeeeeezzzzzz. :-/ - vicster: hon. canadian
Abd how fucking irresponsible to wash chipping paint off and just let it go wherever. What did they expect, the paint would just wash away down the gutter? And end up in the estuary? The bay? Jerks. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm starting to doubt every hopeful thing that lady told me. All she wants is to make a sale. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Grrr! How old is this house? Old enough to have lead based paint? Lead based paint was banned in the 70s. - Greg GuitarBuster
It was built in 1914, converted to a duplex in 1959. No idea how long since it's been painted, we've been here 8 years & it looked like an old paint job then. But even "safe" paint chips should be swept up, not washed into the gutter. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Lead testing in old houses rented with a section8 voucher is required by HUD, this house passed all the tests in 2006. & Jayden's had bloodwork done twice since we lived here, lead levels fine. But who knows what's in the layers of paint on that ancient wood siding. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
well, that sounds a little better, but they should have done some research before even thinking about power washing. - Greg GuitarBuster
I have never heard of a realtor doing that themselves. That sounds chintzy and dangerous. - Anika
Today they're on ladders scraping paint off the siding. Tito, the landlord who didn't want to paint, is over here on a ladder. I said "Tito why you doing that, thought you were selling?" He said "I'm just helping these guys" I said "well you 3 months late, coulda did all that in September when it was dry, and you'd still be getting paid" all he said was "yeah I know" - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Then I'm talking to the guy in charge, realtor's husband. About the mess. He was on the phone acting huffy. He says "we can't clean it until everything's dry (from the rain)" okay, fine, someone coulda told me that before y'all left yesterday. Then he's yelling at me, "leave my guys alone so they can do their job" wait, what? Had to let him know, you don't talk to me like that. I got a question I'm asking it, whatever you say. And I'm the wrong one to be talking down to. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
They had to have entered your unit to "borrow" your tap like that. It's illegal to do that without 24 hrs notice. Also, I suspect it's illegal to run a tenant's water bill up for maintenance that isn't specific to that tenant. - Spidra Webster
It's an outside tap, and I removed the handle so people would stop using it but it's easy turn anyway with pliers. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Oh no. Wrong on so many levels. - AHnix (Anna Haro)

Climate Change Threatens to Strip the Identity of Glacier National Park -
"What will they call this place once the glaciers are gone? A century ago, this sweep of mountains on the Canadian border boasted some 150 ice sheets, many of them scores of feet thick, plastered across summits and tucked into rocky fissures high above parabolic valleys. Today, perhaps 25 survive. In 30 years, there may be none. A warming climate is melting Glacier’s glaciers, an icy retreat that promises to change not just tourists’ vistas, but also the mountains and everything around them." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
