I saw all four episodes plus the background with all of the characters, last week. I learned a lot about our own history. It's a very good series. smile

Well, well well...
The Alt-Right has organized a campaign to silence Snarky.
David's Snarky Politics Place
Fresh off a three day ban in which the Forces of Zuckerberg didn't even explain the reason, Snarky has now been handed a SEVEN DAY BAN.
Reason? He posted a Daily Kos article in which it was reported that antisemitic flyers were being passed around a college campus in Texas, and the administrative board of the college was doing relatively NOTHING.
That IS the entire reason for the seven day ban.
According to the BAN, he "posted that article, which does not meet FB community standards."
It's no wonder, Snarky has them scared. With 45 thousand unique persons liking this page, that's a formidable bludgeon.

We all know what this is, folks.
This is organized members of the Alt-Right who have decided to "report" anything Snarky posts as a violation, and given the capricious and random manner in which FB enforces stuff, and given the right slant of the medium, the method is HIGHLY EFFECTIVE if used well.

Thing is, that has a way of BACKFIRING, and the organized mob that is doing this is about to find out just how well it works.
You got two free hits, guys.
It will be our turn very soon. smile

This is the article that got Snarky banned for seven days, the article which "does not meet Facebook Community Standards".

Anti-Semitic flyers posted at Texas State; prez of U refuses to issue statement

Boy howdy, the system clock sure is screwed up. It says I posted at 2:52 PM on the post (which was 12:52 PM in my Pacific time zone) but it says I posted the same thing at 5:52 PM on the left hand edge.

It seems to be adding an extra 3 hours correction on the left hand edge.

Ever thought of just packing it in, going off the grid and getting away?
$780,000 asking price.
I bet they would take $600,000 or 650,000.
Live off grid in Wyoming, far above the madding crowd.

Rock Springs House in WY

NOTE: The batteries in that off grid system are NICKEL-IRON type, also known as EDISON batteries and they are good for eighty years or even longer.

About 200 miles, on foot, to Jenny Lake, one of my favorite places! Driving into the Tetons is shockingly beautiful and intoxicating. So much so that I got a speeding ticket, oblivious to the speed limit, as animals dont do well with high speed cars. The Cop understood my condition, but I still got the ticket. There has been a Lithium mineral deposit discovered recently near Rock Springs. So mining may be developing. May not be so off the grid! Still, having some Lithium around, can come in handy, for batteries, and when all that surrounding Teton gneiss triggers that damn earworm again! But otherwise it, as I have mentioned elsewhere, wouldnt it be gneiss. Loose associations, who has loose associations??

Tahahaht!
