Write about anything you want in the comments.

The post is just my ritual of photographing (just about) every sunrise and does not need any acknowledgment.

Dell just automatically undated by laptop firmware. Against my expectations, the laptop was not bricked by it.

The breadth and depth of the anti-Trump propaganda effort was astounding. I just started an episode of WWII in Hi Def on Netflix, and the episode was on the liberation of Buchenwald, and of course it went to Trump, "Hitler's message could be understood as Make Germany Great Again." WTF? it could also be understood as "Build Germany Back Better!"

They have the gaul to compare Trump's tweets to Nazi Germany's massive propaganda machine, which used their combination of state and corporate power, (see the definition of fascism) to shut out opposing voices, when the anti Trump people are the ones with the massive propaganda apparatus and the state and corporate power to shut out opposing voices.

Anybody who can't see this should just admit that they are part of a cult already, and it's OK because they are privy to the Truth.

Computers do a lot of freaking work. We free ride off of them.

Only 10 cases of the strain — dubbed B.1.1.529 — have been spotted to date

Variant has 32 mutations, many of which suggest it is more vaccine-resistant

Scientists warn the variant could be worse 'than nearly anything else about'

"How Waukesha parade horror was made possible by left-wing district attorneys’ attempts at bail reform" was the headline from

The problem with made-up news is that there ain't no left-wing district attorney in Waukesha, WI - one of the most conservative counties in the Badger State. Republican Sue Opper was appointed as Waukesha DA by Gov. Scott Walker in 2015 and ran unopposed in 2020.

gadfly, nice try but here’s a link for you to a map of Wisconsin.

Can you find Milwaukee County? Good. Now find Waukesha County. Do you see the proximity of the 2 respective counties. Allegedly, in his long history of committing violent crimes, last Sunday’s was Brooks’s first mass murder in the county just to the east of where he resided. Different polities; different DA’s.
