North Carolina Court Issues Permane...atory Purpose’ Against Black Residents
Full Title: North Carolina Court Issues Permanent Injunction Against State’s Voter ID Law Because of ‘Discriminatory Purpose’ Against Black Residents

Mebbe the NC Legislature can just go write some voter fraud laws for black folks instead... coffee

Yup, Brian is now hiding-out in a wildlife preserve. That's an odd place to hang-out after just coming home from a summer's vacation out West. Hmm

Anybody watching Ted Lasso? It’s jerked me for a few tears and a lotta laughs in every episode.


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

On Tuesday, the New Jersey Monitor reported that nearly two dozen members of law enforcement in the Garden State lost their lives to COVID-19 - just in the previous week.

That is a lot of LEOs to lose and whose deaths could have been prevented. Hmm

LEOs are kind of typically conservative authoritarian types.

They'll wear a bulletproof vest and full body armor but a mask...? Or a vaccination...?

Why is it that these folks who love telling everyone else what to do hate being told what to do?


Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...

I haven't been. But the show did win four Emmy® Awards tonight.

My TV is actually still packed in a box...haven't brought it out to hook-up since the move. I'm not missing TV.

Hmm

Perhaps. But why is this event any sadder or more tragic than any of the rest of the horrible things that happen to humans all across the globe… daily.

Serious question.


Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

Saw a Golden Eagle today. It flew into the crotch of a eucalyptus tree right above my vegetable garden while I was watering. These things are BIG. No mistaking it for a hawk, and besides the hawks around here are all red-tails. The only other big birds around here are owls and turkey vultures, and they look nothing like an eagle. Apparently there are a few Bald Eagles here in San Diego County, but they don't look much like Golden Eagles. I've seen dozens of Bald Eagles eating a seal carcass in the Aleutian Islands.

That's the second time I have seen it up there, but I go water every afternoon, so it might be there more often. Funny thing: It had the same attitude today. Not interested in what I was doing. Just staring off into the distance, looking noble. Like "human stuff" was beneath it's notice.

It's a great perch for a raptor: 270 degree view from hundreds of feet up. You can see about 75 miles on a clear day. I do leave a bird bath filled there. Maybe it's coming for water. Not much accessible water around here.


We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
