Leaves of Invertebrates

American Robin in the leaves.
Because that’s where the good stuff is.

Now, if this bird could turn over logs:

I can’t stomach watching the Orange Troll in action, but I forced myself to look at his sniffly Gollum-in-a-fright-wig performance last night. What a squandered opportunity, but who expected more after three years of his blustering ignorance, incompetence, and corruption? Word is that the nastiest thugs on his team, business-partner-of-assassins son-in-criminality Jared Kushner and Klan posterboy Stephen Miller, “wrote” that shit. Within an hour of his e-nun-ci-at-ing the address, the White House was walking back three of his pronouncements. More details on his Presidential errors.

By the way, the UK isn’t included in the European ban even though it has more cases than 8 other European nations. But Trump has properties in the UK, nowhere else in Europe. Your health and welfare are irrelevant to this dumpster fire. And these.

Next week, the epidemiologists predict, we hit Italian levels of infection. Here’s some background how Trump sabotaged our response efforts.

    You leave me ah…Breathless. Jerry Lee Lewis and Jean Luc Goddard.

    As for the Orange One: The People United Shall Never Be Defeated. Anthem from Operation Condor.

    In 1975, six South American military dictatorships conspired to concoct a secret plan to eliminate their left-wing opponents. Not only would the intelligence services of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay trade information with each other and kidnap, disappear and kill their own domestic foes, they would also cooperate in identifying and killing exiles from partner countries who had taken refuge elsewhere.

    By the time Operation Condor ended in the early 1980s, as many as 60,000 people may have been killed. Precise numbers are hard to come by, because of the clandestine undertaking, and in the years since, political amnesties, the destruction or decay of public records and the reluctance of survivors to revisit the trauma of their imprisonment and torture have impeded the compilation of a definitive history.

    I think we are of the same generation and you get my references.
    Thank you for bringing Power to the People. (power to the people right on!)

      Perhaps a good place to note that the ideal libertarian state — the one the Republicans have been aiming for ever since — was the Chilean dictatorship under Pinochet.

      Happy Friday!
