The History of Ronald Reagan | with Patton Oswalt on The Dollop


While listening to The Congressional Dish #Podcast, I heard about The Dollop and couldn't resist sampling it. I'm drawing peoples attention to #Reagan aka: Ron Ray Gun. He has been deified by many #Conservatives, #Right-Winger's, and #Evangelical #Christians. I'll admit to being ignorant enough to think he was a good thing for #America when I was younger and I was more likely to swallow #Propaganda whole because it had #Truthiness. I'm older and wiser now and don't think in bumper-sticker sized ideas.

These two windows into the life and times of Ron & Nancy Reagan were pretty eye-opening to me and I already have a lot of #Economic reasons to detest him for his hidden agenda connected to his actions.

I hope you take the time to listen to them.

31 years ago, on this day in 1988, American warship USS Vincennes shot down the Iranian passenger plain Airbus A300 IR655 that was in it's daily flight route from Bandar Abbas to Dubai, killing all 290 passenger ans crew including 66 children.


We should never forget the atrocities of the past or we are doomed to see them repeated again in our lifetime.

Still remember the day, my brothers family took that same route several times before the incident and it was like a nightmare to follow.

US was there to support Saddam and stop Iran at any cost, the US War ship was deep inside Iranian water and the plane was climbing on a pré planned commercial route with an active civilian IFF at 14000 feet when it was attacked, not an F14 faking IFF moving toward US warship as they told the world.

This is one of those stories we will never forget. Specially the indifference of the world toward this war crime, and the fact the captain received a medal for his action in Persian Gulf shortly after her murdered 290 innocent people.

Devotional objects by Friedrich von Hayek up for auction


The online sale began on March 8th and ends on March 19th, and the sale items will be on display in London from March 15th to the 18th. I visited Sotheby’s in New York City last Friday, while a sample of the belongings for sale was being exhibited, and met with Gabriel Heaton, a books and manuscripts specialist at the auction house.

“The Mont Pelerin Society isn’t all that well known, but is actually incredibly influential,” Heaton tells me. “Hayek understood that in order to change the political agenda, the way to do that was by winning the arguments, and you do that by gathering together like-minded people to share their thinking and develop their arguments that way.”

Inteesting way to think. Still, I wouldn't oppose to discuss one's views with unlik-minded thinkers as wel, to become aware of potential gaps that wouldn't emerge in such an echo chamber.

On Dan Crenshaw, the latest starlet in the GOPs


“A society full of people who are easily enraged by every tweet they see, or some news story that comes out—so susceptible to outrage culture, so ready to be offended—it’s not a sustainable society. It’s a society at each other’s throats,” he says.

He seriously sounds like a reaonsable conservative. I like him.

[...] whether he’s slamming his Democratic colleagues, speaking fluent Spanish in a video supporting the Venezuelan people or humble-bragging about his double ax-throwing skills—are frequently shared and “liked” by thousands or tens of thousands of people.

he supports free trade, wants to reform Medicare and Social Security, and thinks American troops should stay in Afghanistan (where an IED took one of the veteran’s eyes) as long as they’re needed to prevent another 9/11. That puts him at odds with Drumpf, whom Crenshaw has been unafraid to criticize, going so far as to call his rhetoric “ins... Show more...

Again, on Nogales, AZ, and the border amped with concertina wire


The resolution — which says such a wall "is only found in a war, prison or battle setting" and has no place in the city — says that if the government does not remove the wire, it will file a lawsuit to have it taken down.

Earlier in the week, Mayor Arturo Garino told the local Nogales International that the razor wire was "lethal" to the town's residents. "I really don't know what they’re thinking by putting it all the way down to the ground," he said.

To not grieve mroe about this stupid making of populist policies, let's wonder why a local newspaper called itself Nogales International. I found this kind of funny, I must admit, but maybe, I just grew tired of all this bullshit the president is creating to show his sheeple how much he is about defending his country from the imaginary crisis that awaits in front of the border.
