@Lobster When psychological manipulation is amplified through carefully orchestrated propaganda in order to achieve goals defined by the cold hard calculus of power and greed then it becomes obvious that someone has realized it is an exacting science.

But, alas, this is just my humble opinion based on observation.

Mathematical science shows what is. It is the language of unseen relations between things. But to use and apply that language, we must be able fully to appreciate, to feel, to seize the unseen, the unconscious.

@lolgop The fact that they keep letting these people come on TV or post their opinions without challenge is maddening. It's not "even-handed" to allow little Marco or Asa Hutchinson or some other lying shill onto your platform without challenging or calling out their lies.

FFS they are not the same. Claiming that a balloon is more of a threat to our nation than armed traitors shitting on the floor of the Captiot is insane.

Visited Georgetown last weekend with the dogs and someone took a photo of us and then sent it to us. Too good not to share.

Ever wonder:
Why do we never hear of a psychic winning the lottery? Why is it called Lipstick when you can still move your lips with it on? How did a fool and his money get together in the first place? What do they use to ship styrofoam?
Just wonderin'.

"She likes long walks on the beach..." A couple of North Carolina's wild Spanish mustangs, locally known as banker ponies, walk along the beach on the northern Outer Banks near Carova. A black stallion is followed by a young sorrel mare with flaxen mane.

So it seems the North Carolina (elected) Supreme Court is about to say that it is OK to disenfranchise voters of the wrong color and political persuasion.

These are fascists using the cover of law to take over society.

Presumably Elon is hoping his announced "ad revenue sharing" scheme for ads on replies (for Twitter Blue subs) will bring in more Twitter Blue subs. But watch what happens to firms and organizations that fork over $1000/month + $50/mo/user under the currently reported #Twitter "gold check" scheme Elon has supposedly cooked up. Any org or firm seen to be paying that kind of money to Elon is likely going to be mercilessly taunted from various quarters.
