    Cool. I still haven't tried to find my genetic relations...

    I'll have to listen a couple times to try to understand.

    If I listen a few times, I'll get the gist probably. Between studying french and exposure to Spanish, I can get a modicum of understanding.

    One thing that amazes me is the genuine surprise of so many republicans at the hypocrisy you mention. I hear so many of them in the media expressing surprise at their colleagues' hypocrisy. Surprise and dismay.

    I'm like, where have you folks been? Have you been paying attention?

    I guess they were spending so much time focusing on the Dems they couldn't see what was happening in their own house.

    You gotta clean your own house before you start lecturing your neighbors about theirs.

    Gnostics like anarchy. Miguel does, anyway. The chaos thread may be the best place for this one. This is about gnostics and their attitudes, Miguel doesn't discuss current political figures. (at least not so far, I'm halfway through).

    At 43:40 he talks about 'weaponized gnosticism'. Apparently L Ron Hubbard told his followers he was offering a gnostic religion.

    At this point I think it is a legitimate question to ask "How low will the Republicans go to keep power". They don't seem to have a moral bottom. To think this is representative of a large segment of our society should be quite sobering. I've long believed that it is emblematic of disease.

    The injection of American fundamentalism into politics has drastically changed both the Republican party and also America’s Religious character.

    The unintended consequence is many folks leaving religion. They don’t like what they see.

    Lewandowski says he has no obligation to be truthful to the media.

    Hmmm...

    I wonder how much of the 'wrong' reports are the result of blatant lies by officials.

    Using lies of the 'other team' as an excuse is weak. Very weak. But I guess that's all they got...

    the above photos I captured at the AlienCon yesterday. The drawing is an example of what FOIA requests will get you...The UFO photo according to Nick Pope is more representative of the actual photos that have not been released due to security classifications. The t-shirt is my proposed new avatar...

    You really can't get more swampy than the proposed self-dealing with Doral and the G7. Where's all the outrage? I hear echoes of Mulvaney..."We do it all the time." As if that makes it OK.

    And Lindsay Graham tried to get Republicans to sign a letter saying they'd support Trump No Matter What. Apparently not enough of them are base enough to sign that crap.

    Holy Moly. I don't believe any of the folks anymore who said they wanted the swamp drained. What a bunch of hooey.

    Here is something I did when I was a kid to demonstrate to my friends that if one wants to it is possible to get away with anything:

    Me and two friends decided to go to a drive-in movie but one of my friends had no money for the admission price. I did I offered to pay, so off we went. I drove in to the theater admission booth. Myself and another friend were in the front seat of the car, another friend was sitting in the back seat in plain view to the ticket taker. I asked for TWO tickets and handed over the money. The ticket taker didn't really hesitate, took the money and we drove in. As we went out of sight, we all just burst out laughing about how in the world we could have gotten away with that. I just sat smugly thinking to myself, "I knew that would work".

    That is what Trump does, it is so blatant, so out of the norm, that people can't psychologically react because frankly it is so weird. It's like seeing a ghost...how one will react if at all can't be anticipated. Trump thrives on this but he keeps pushing it thinking it will become as the media calls it "normalized". He is about done, really. [I just saw a clip of him on the news, he's a phoney ass dickhead]

    Apparently many others have decided to throw their brains in the trash bin, supporting him no matter what. Folks who have turned their values upside-down.

    I've noticed the embrace of values which fall under muslim belief but not christian:

    Eye for an eye

    Vengeance

    Ends justify the means


    My parents raised us to understand that these are not high moral ground and are unAmerican.

    Modern Americans embracing these unChristian and unAmerican values for the sake of a man like Trump. Gross, imo.
