What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo has been walking my mind to an easy time, my back turned towards the sun, Lord knows when the cold wind blows it'll turn your head around

Every Southern Gothic Novel ever. Okay, it's like playing a country song backwards so you get your dog back, you truck fixed, and your wife back. But then I'm working on a new phrase (mostly for Romance Writers), "I can't hear you because the money truck was backing up" (also works for JK Rowling, Dan Brown, Stephen King, Danielle Steele, …) (Grokked from Ferrett Steinmetz)

Well, maybe it wouldn't be radio signals, but laser light that an extraterrestrial would reveal themselves. And there's someone who thinks they found 234 such signals. Or, you know, it could be a calibration error.

"The feds arrested three members of a right wing militia for allegedly planning to detonate explosives at an apartment complex in Garden City, Kansas, with Somali Muslims specifically the target, law enforcement announced at Friday." As a white person, I denounce this act. Also noted, this is another attempt to start the revolution.

"The State Department is banning passport and visa applicants from wearing eyeglasses in photos taken for the documents." Well, there's a solution in search of a nonexistent problem. They say it's to help speed applications, but then it will slow down processing as everyone who wears glasses will have to remove them to process through passport control. The real problem is that facial recognition software can have problems with glasses (when people don't wear them all the time) and the advent of spoofing technology to foil facial recognition software.

Ben Carson gets a little flustered about being pressed on his candidate's statements. See, we're all getting distracted by things that make them uncomfortable and they don't want to talk about it. Mostly because it gets back to the 2012 fiasco of "legitimate rape", which is what they're arguing at this point. Also, "It's a place where they take sick people. But that's not important right now."

"'What vision to Hillary Clinton and her party offer the people? They want an America that doesn’t stand out. They want an America that is ordinary. There is a gloom and grayness to things,' (Paul Ryan) continued. 'In the America they want, the driving force is the state. Where we are ruled by our betters, by a cold and unfeeling democracy that replaces original thinking. A place where the government twists the law and the constitution itself to suit its purposes. It's a place where liberty is always under assault. Where passion, the very stuff of life is extinguished. That is the America Hillary Clinton wants.'" Wow, that's one heaping helping of projection there, Pauly. Remember when the Republicans were all about the character of their leaders? Good times.

"Dictators throughout history have created chaos in order to justify the use of force. But Trump’s ability to carry out this plan relies on him getting elected. With that option off the table, what comes next?" Some times it helps to know you're not alone. (Grokked from Xeni Jardin)

So, what exactly do Trumpster supporters hear when he says to go and watch polls and make sure, "you know." "His supporters here said they plan to go to their local precincts to look for illegal immigrants who may attempt to vote. They are worried that Democrats will load up buses of minorities and take them to vote several times in different areas of the city. They’ve heard rumors that boxes of Clinton votes are already waiting somewhere… And if Trump doesn’t win, some are even openly talking about violent rebellion and assassination, as fantastical and unhinged as that may seem." Voter intimidation, delusions, paranoia, it's all a part of the Trumpster Circus. (Grokked from Xeni Jardin)

Tweet of my heart: ‏@LibyaLiberty If you're an American confusedly watching the darkest forces of ur nation rally behind a demagogue-maybe u can understand the Mid East now. (Grokked from Diana Rowland)
