Global Warming Denial has been added to the Thou Shalt Not List:
Deut. 5:12b: Honor thy beautiful and fragile planet, that drought unending and famine afflicting thine cows and thine horses and then thine wife and children and all that thou canst see shall not afflict you.
Otherwise drought kills everything. texans pay $90-a-bale for $8 hay and hay for January/February is nonexistent.
Tropical Storm Lee is set to miss all but a sliver of Texas.
Breaking: Tropical Storm Lee will drop no more than 1/2" of its life-serving waters to the west of Louisiana.
The huckster known as Slick Rick was seeking punishments ??? Perry didn't budget a dime to prepare for drought.
"Tell me what you do and I'll tell you what you believe" -- yes, indeed.

Haven't seen Carmen Sandiego in years. And now The Meteor is moving on from our DKOS sky. The serious side exists, of course:
I am taking a leave of absence from Daily Kos. Other than to say my reasons are not related to my health, I am not willing to discuss the matter in public. My return is doubtful.

So... let's get down our guesses on what #6's next job will be.
He's too valuable simply to disappear. A Dream Job for him is to replace Joe Scarborough. What is his new enterprise or passion or folly or winning-of-the-lottery ?
Left-brain rational calculations... acceptable. Right-brain silliness... why not. We knew Tim before there was a DailyKos and guessing his next job has absolutely nothing to do with his personal life.
Here is what Beck Weathers did to himself. He is becoming a folk hero among the Tea Party crowd.
He trashed his face and his feet, lost his right hand completely plus joints from his left-hand fingers and part of his left thumb.
Weathers is the Tea Party's Perfect Man.
He embodies self-destruction in pursuit of fantasy.
Teabaggers follow their rightie propagandists. They idolize this guy Weathers, despite that he didn't understand basic equipment, lied about a recent surgery, and ended up as a human anchor - a fatal danger to others on the high slopes of Mount Everest.
Always, always misused for profit. Here on stage at Fendi-Paris at a $1,000,000 gig, ravaged/wasted/dying from a staph infection in her face and lungs:
She was poisoned into a coma with Ketamine on August 8th 2007. Could have been an effort to kill her for her estate. Between that and the staph damage and cocaine microstrokes (not ischemic full bleeders) Amy could not remember the words to songs by 2008.
She needed cue cards. So, this year it was off to more concerts and loud, nasty abuse from the audiences.
Nobody took care of her. An hour's work printing out cue cards was too much trouble.
That's on the dkos front page. Glowing commentary.
Meanwhile, here's the real jobs figures -- adjusted to reflect both The Fed's Big Bubble and the Bush deficits (recall tax giveaways and Iraq). Go to the CBO figure at 134,000,000 non-bubble jobs at start of 2008:
Uh... yeah... the Crash of 2008 still has us down by 3,000,000 jobs compared to where we should have been in January 2008. That's why it's called a crash.
11,000,000 jobs down ??? That's claiming the Big Bubble Binge (2002-2008) was normal and that the economic insanity balloon should have blown up bigger and bigger forever !
So what is that EPI trash doing on the dkos front page ?
Democrats wonder at the rock star impact of Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann. They are fact-challenged dunces. They spout near-nonsense at any problem where the complexity exceeds "2 + 2 = 4." They are polluted with simpleton ideology.
A mystery, if you listen to experts.
Turns out that this "something" is known Ad Biz technique -- they light up right-brain functions, similar to the runway lights at an airport. PET scan neurology confirmed left/right lobe differentiations decades ago.
No-logic propaganda is more than a gimmick. Psychological characteristics form up like this:
LEFT (Analytic) - RIGHT (Global)
1. Responds to logic -------- Responds to emotion.
2. Verbal ----------------------- Visual
3. Word meaning ------------- Tone of voice
4. Sequential ------------------ Random
5. Linear processing --------- Random processing
6. Plans ahead ---------------- Impulsive
7. Recalls names ------------- Recalls faces
8. Questions sourcing------- Follows by default
Overall, there are a couple dozen differentiations. Ad Biz shops make most of their money working these functions. Political applications add strong right-brain Gateway Triggers that facilitate complex message transfers.
Theoretical-to-practical with a new GOPer strategy and one GOPer vulnerability below the fold. :::
It's our money and a Sharpie can change it. The admirable sentiment of "E Pluribus Unum," is out of date.
The Roberts SCOTUS is gutting campaign finance laws, Common Law Fraud as applied to the corporations, Class Action law suits. GOP state governments attack education and vote restrictions. The billionaires throw $500,000,000 a year at propaganda.
The playing field is a mess.
What if the words "MONEY SWEARS" start appearing on printed bills from the $20 bills to the $100 bills ?
Bob Dylan's "Money doesn't talk, it swears" -- shortened for effect. Could this help in a small way to wake up the country ? Comments appreciated.....
