Re: Simple, Healthy, Delish Recipes

This is a great butternut squash soup recipe which has a secret ingredient which makes this soup epic and indescribable. (The secret ingredient is tart green apples, which, it turns out, is something that butternut squash needs.) I don't follow this recipe exactly, as I like to roast everything at t...

Re: Too bad George Orwell isn't around to see this

I think Vinny was just having fun with Newspeak. No. It's a phrase it seems I've recently frequently heard. Vinny Of course you have heard that in the Democrat party media. Maybe you should stop watching, listening to, or reading such propaganda. I stand corrected. Meanwhile. Look, a crazy man. htt...

Re: Amazon medical transcriptions

So, I'm working on a book, and for the first time, I am dictating it to my phone and transcribing it, and was recently pretty bummed about how long it was going to take, until I figured out how to get Google Docs to convert a voice file to a document. Mostly it works really well, and the assumption ...

Re: More Fascinating Connections (Manson and the CIA)

It certainly changes your world view in a way that doesn't allow you to go back. But as of this year, even a head-in-the-sand-type person would be hard pressed to avoid seeing that something seriously nefarious has been going on. True enough. You might like this interview with Tom O'Neill on a pret...

Re: Which camp?

the citing of Alex and Hannah be the epitome of anecdotal "proof" and entirely un-scientific? And, am I an outlier since I don't use a cell phone for talking, keep my wired phone unplugged at home, hardly ever use my office phone, preferring either email or face-to-face communications? It would be ...

Re: More Fascinating Connections (Manson and the CIA)

I heard a recent rebroadcast of an interview with McGowan in which he said that in the past, he thought the phrase 'ignorance is bliss' was generally a putdown, and that after all the years of studying the things he has studied, he was beginning to rethink that assumption. He wondered out loud wheth...

Re: Meritocracy's Miserable Winners

@sophie You are right, that article was conflation nation, and the author is one confused soul. It was like he was trying to say everything at once in one go. I think he was sneakily trying to redefine meritocracy as code for white privilege without having to say it. Just give up your privilege, des...

Re: Video from the 2019 Democratic Socialists of America Convention

This is very confusing. I thought white people were supposed to check their privilege. Instead you have white men dominating the proceedings by yelling "Point of personal privilege" and then complaining that people are whispering to their friends. Is this a loophole that I can exploit? As long as I ...

Re: Mueller's Testimony

Interesting take by James Kunstler at his blog. https://kunstler.com/clusterfuck-nation/a-purview-of-dust/ Who imagined that in the climactic scene of the blockbuster RussiaGate fantasy, when the curtain was ripped away, the Wizard at the controls would turn out to be… Captain Queeg!

Re: Athlete articles

I was a Golden State Warriors fan as a kid, and that was a pretty tough thing to be for years, seeing as how the Warriors had a talent for drafting players, then trading them away to teams that would go on to win the championship; they also had a talent for passing in the draft on players who would ...
