Who would have thought it possible?!

A President-Elect

has used his position to

secure oodles of cash

from a drooling crowd

 of “Me First!”

business types! 

Of course,

as the news item below suggests,

the scale of the corruption

that has arisen since the election

shall continue to grow to

unimaginable proportions!


How Could You?

( )

It gets worse!

The following is a reproduction of the article as found at the New York Times:

Republicans are starting to talk openly about refusing to fill Antonin Scalia’s Supreme Court seat not only through the end of President Obama’s term but indefinitely. Ted Cruz, Charles Grassley and John McCain have all sent such signals, as have some other prominent conservatives. 

It’s worth taking this talk seriously. 

Top Republicans have made clear in recent years that they care more about winning than about adhering to political norms or doing what's best for the country. You can see this attitude in the willingness to shut down the government, the threats to default on the national debt and the stated desire to make Obama a failed president. 

The political scientists Thomas Mann and Norm Ornstein call it “asymmetric polarization”: the two political parties have come to behave quite differently. 

Refusing to seat a ninth justice, simply for ideological reasons, would be a clear and worrisome break with democratic tradition. It would send the message that Republicans believe a president should be able to exercise the Constitutional power to name justices only if that president were Republican. It would represent a new level of partisan cynicism. 

I hope that the wiser heads within the Republican Party prevail after the election. But Democrats should be prepared for the alternative. 

The alternative would mean that Senate control — which remains up in the air, given the tightness of recent polls — will be crucial. If Republicans hold the Senate, a President Hillary Clinton would be at their mercy with any nominee. 

If Democrats take the Senate, they would have an obvious fallback plan: eliminating the 60-vote threshold of the filibuster — as a Senate majority can always do — and confirming a justice with 51 votes. As long as Republicans keep talking about permanent obstructionism, Democrats should not hesitate to use that option.

The full Opinion report from The Times follows, including Wajahat Ali writing that recent Islamophobia has inspired Muslims to get politically engaged.

The corruption interest

inherent to the

Republican Party Plan

in the above news item is this: 

By refusing to name a new Justice to the Supreme Court, they shall be able to do the same at a later date.

(If we get busy

and do the only thing

that MIGHT save

our Children’s future!)  

Then, at their option, they may well refuse to fill another vacant seat.

The logic is quite simple:

Lower the number of necessary people whose absolute trust and commitment to your Party’s ideals comes first and foremost . . . and you more readily can control the nature of the laws you wish to see established; and how they shall be interpreted in favour of whomever is the “Party Mannequin” of the day.

Update! February 3, 2017:  President Trump has nominated an “Originalist” as his nominee for the Supreme Court and his now facing a strong opposition to that selection.



Pension Plan Collapse

Hello Mr. Cohn,

"It’s human nature to ignore pension tensions. Until the money runs out."

That's a very good article  . . BTW . . . 

 . . . which leads to the question: 

What happens when we wake to the reality that we MUST store ALL personal vehicles, or leave an unfit habitat for our children ?

That question is explored, and answered, at:   and   and  and

Now: In the spirit of helping all understand that the majority have no clue, none whatsoever about most things that guide their cries from death to birth (Ok . . Or vice versa!) I, (The 'Good Guy!') offer

as the Oak, Spindle and / or Toothpick that might trace, turn or thump the majority into agreeing to see it "Their Way" (As in: The Blokes who have the majority baffled with heaps of bull and balderdash!)  . . or not . . . due to whatever reasons might develop . . . after we come up with a fantabulous plan to permit ALL to have their way . . forever!

Now ALL must (Should?) ) (Maybe?) . . . OK! Do it! Admit that there is no better or more solid plan to be had anywhere! (With all modesty!) 

(Okay! Let's not mention the superlative plan that the odd American twit / twat / whatever . . . known as "The Fat Towering Trumpets  . . player  . . or other . . 


he gets to screw EVERYONE  and steal the stuffing out of America's taxpayers with his "Cake for everybody!" promise!

Now - The 37% screwing of Europe’s hopes!

How could this happen?

Why . . weren’t you aware

That after the screwing

Europe wouldn’t be there!

Not for our children

Though t’is true

They did have but few hopes

After the bout ‘bout our greed

And our tossing the rope . .

About their future

Amid the heat and all that

But we endured more

We did! T’is true!

And dined on old cats

And rusted tin brew . .

So the toss has a cost

But we’ll probably survive

When greed has its way

And the hordes all arrive

As millions flee madness

In lands lost to greed

And old mens religions

Built round useless screeds

Our shores well protected

We’ve the means you must know

To murder all others

If that’s how it goes.

So frig all requests

For reviews of the past

We did our thinking

And on our own at last!

In schools everywhere

Now . . .

with respect to the following as

Posted to “The Guardian”

on October 17, 2016 

(With corrections

and a few ‘add-ons' etc.)

I ask that all remember

what was first stated at 

on September 12, 2016:

"We have, at most, 20 months to STORE all personal vehicles and plan the use of all engines used to produce and deliver our food."

Now, another related prediction / suggestion: 

If, by July 1st., 2018 we have failed to do so:

Do whatever you wish, whenever you wish. To whomever you wish. And do so with absolute disregard for all and any laws. Or concepts such as "Civilized Behaviour".

Do so as all shall then know that we were never half as intelligent as we thought ourselves to be. 

Nor "caring" and all of those other "socially necessary deceptions and descriptions”.

And do remember to tell the children "why", prior to the sudden worldwide onrush of knowledge that will inform all that we have lost our planet . . . 'why' you believed that "Our Prized Mobility" was so much more important than their atmosphere . . . pending their immolation in the "Runaway Venus Scenario" that shall "then", most likely be recognised as "Here" and "Non-Reversible", regardless of any efforts "THEN" to do what we MUST do NOW, IF we actually care about our children and their future.

Is the above too difficult to understand, 'to-day'?

Try to think of how you will justify your inaction, 'then', to children who may well decide to seek a vicious and immediate justice against every politician and the fools who urged them to pay no heed to such warnings.

In order that everyone

fully understand the reality

of the situation:


in public life


to address the subject matter.

Its THAT serious!

They dare not!

Go Ahead!

Ask Them!

They dare not as they

fear the fall-out

of having to actually confront

our continuing contribution

to the near future hell

that we're loading

upon our children!


How many millions of tons of crap are we putting into our sole and solitary atmosphere? Each and every day? Go ahead! How much?

Go ahead!

Build some bone!

Develop some integrity! 

Inform your children

of these concerns!  

and, now . . .





All Parents, worldwide, are on notice that this message imparting the information THEY would not otherwise accept into the pained corners of THEIR minds, now exists on more computers than most can imagine!

Parents! Your children

are aware, as of this

17th Day Of October 2016 


were made aware

of the reality

that a possible

“Tipping Point”

is now threatening

an otherwise

unbelievable increase

in the rate of warming!

And that our sole

and not necessarily 

meaningful response

(It may already be too late!)

can and


the immediate


absolute rejection of

all fossil fuel use.


As in


Your Personal Vehicles! 

Do It Now!

Spread the word! 

Or start


your nuclear weapons

to so decimate

present day


as to give a

possible chance

of meaningful survival

to whatever might follow!

Go ahead!

Make your choice!

Its Decision Time!

Give your children the chance you would want to have! . . If you knew, with no room for doubt . . that purportedly "concerned and caring parents" are quietly, but ‘actively’, disregarding a KNOWN threat to their children’s very existence(!) . . 

What would you do about it?

What will you do about it?

What CAN you do about it?!

Go ahead . . if you have intellect, backbone, and a brainy integrity sufficient to ACT on your duty to protect all children! Do so! Now! 

With NO Hesitation! 

Do it! 

Or feel free to understand

the actions of your friends

who might opt for

“An Early Exit.

as described at

To a safer, saner


more caring world!

To Duty!  

Tell the kids their parents

face a situation

wherein they have to choose as in:

The Cars!"

To those who can still 'think’;

and are ‘thinking'

of this critical matter: 

Get Busy!

So, When Do We

Tell The Children?

Do you wish to help save the

Children and wake the world?
