RE -

Could you tell me who painted the third and final image above?  I think the artist may be a local I know.  Maybe.  Very similar work, anyway.
My "avatar" graphic is Japanese calligraphy (shodō) forming the word shoshin, meaning "beginner's mind". --  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoshin -- It is with shoshin that I am now and always "meeting my breath" for the first time. Try it!

I think certain people just want so badly to get behind SOMEBODY. That's the dangerous part. They want to believe that some leader actually can and will "drain the swamp", which is just not going to happen, because the swamp is bought and paid for, and the owners like it fine the way it is. In fact, they want to add on to the swamp and make it just a little bigger, so they can add a few more alligators.

At some point the American people will go to the swamp with pitchforks and torches in hand.  Or maybe they will surround the swamp in such a way so as they might turn off its water supply and dry it up?  But I think the days for this swamp are numbered.

Drudge is not blowing smoke! I completed a pass through my list of 'fake' news links the other day and associated similar links by color.  Drudge is on the list and I had no trouble getting there.  I had to visit every link I changed the color of to see what the link was about so I would know how to color it.  I happened to hit Drudge when the site was not being attacked but other sites showed me that Drudge is telling the truth.

In the process of going through my fake news list I hit blank white pages many times.  This is curious because if the sites no longer existed I should have got 404 errors and not blank pages.  Blank pages are consistent with a cyber attack.  One site in particular is very strong evidence that Quo-Bama cyber attacks (censorship) are indeed taking place.

On Wednesday I could not load this site.  All I got was a page with a message that said we are experiencing heavy traffic and can't process your request.  Please check back later.  Something like that.  I could not get through all day.  All I got was the initial default page load with the message which could not be written over because of the heavy traffic.  Yesterday was different.  I was able to get through and found the site belonged in my Russian category where it now lives close to The Saker.  You should get there without trouble.  It is now as if the attack never happened.

Quo-Bama is an elitist piece of shit but I think everyone here knows that.

Didn't somebody tell ole Matt it's them damn Ruskies doin' all the hackin'?  The Bear-Ass Grizzlies. They covered their tracks but a reliable source told the WaPo and the NYTimes, that there was a big Russian bear turd left in a stairwell of the Watergate Hotel, and for the last week Vermonters have been getting electric bills that demand payment in Rubles, which they have to send to a mail drop in the Crimea somewhere.

The average American can't  find his own asshole using both hands and a map. The swamp won't get drained until climate change puts DC underwater. We've got about 11 meters to go. For the record, the last bad storm surge there was only 11 feet, so we're not quite there yet.

Matt does not understand how diabolical the Ruskies are.  One of them infiltrated the Democratic party as as a spy and then turned emails over as an American fooling Julian Assange.  Then they made a DNS attack look like it was coming at Matt from all over the country from a thousand random American locations instead of a thousand sites in Russia itself.  How clever was that! 



Ruskies are very determined when they want to be.  I got between a Russian woman and a bottle of Grey Goose vodka at a drugstore the day after Christmas and I was almost knocked over as she grabbed it off the shelf.  I had heard her accent a moment before when she was asking a clerk where the Grey Goose was.  I was almost injured buying chocolate.  If Trump sends her ass back it is fine with me.  I was not amused.

She might have been Ukrainian.  I can't tell the difference form the accent.  We have both flavors here.  I'm just glad I made it out of the store alive.

You have a good point.  We don't need to drain the swamp, we need to flood it instead.  We are not there yet but we will get there.  We just need to be patient.

I once made the mistake of asking the guy on the far right in this video if he was Russian. His name is Sergei Vaschenko, and he'll damn sure let you know.

Am NOT Russian. Am from UKRAINE!!!!

How embarrassing for me.

A couple megatons will drain the swamp quite nicely....  :icon_mrgreen:

Here's a list of overwhelmingly probably fake news sites.  It may be a good idea to check here before posting "breaking news" stories.

Some of the supposedly "fake news" items at http://www.fakenewscodex.com/ may not be quite as "fake" as some folks may think.

Of all of the "conspiracy theories" we may hear about, the one I find the most utterly convincing is the one which says that various highly lucrative industries have conspired to take over "medicine" (i.e., "evidence [science] based medicine").  The pharmaceutical industry is an obvious likely culprit, here. Insurance companies ..., universities... are likely in on it.  And the publishers of so-called "peer-reviewed medical science journals" play a decidedly crucial role.

Always be very careful about  claims about medicine which come from the very most official sources, such as the AMA, which has on occasion behaved as a kind of "Mafia" for big money interests vis-a-vis medical "legitimacy".  These entities claim to be interested in health, and medical science, but these claims should be taken with a grain of ... um, salt.   

Oh, while we're at it...  You wanna buy some protection?
