Latest New York Times Chances to Win projections.
New York Times’ Latest ‘scientific’ estimates of who has the best chance of winning this 2016 Presidential Election Circus —

— The New York Times is delving into who of the HillaRump Circus has the best chances to live in the White House [ If it’s still there when this election is History- ]

Graphically cute - "How the vote preferences have changed."
This is part of the NT page above the link. What’s represented here are estimates of how the voters in states and sometimes districts inside those states have changed their voting allegiance since 2004.

No act of kindness is ever small.
I thought I might toss some optimism into this mix, “No act of kindness is ever small.”

— & Here’s a message I do not want to send subliminally or otherwise: [ “Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” Now there’s a statement that could scare anyone out of voting this time. ] I really thought this would be a nice positive message about doing nice things for people and animals whether that might advance your career or get you elected or whatever —

Ranked Voting Tweet.
— I think the above tweet reflects the tweeter’s personal preferences and is not intended to be a statement that reflects the mood of the nation at this time.

— The last time I heard an explanation of how ranked voting might work —> In this case with 5 choices, the first choice would get 5 points, second choice would get 4 points, third choice would get 3 points, fourth choice would get 2 points, and fifth choice would get 1 point. — I’d like to be a ‘fly on the wall’ catching all the comments and getting a good feel for the atmosphere at a super honest session with people manually checking though hard copy votes in a case like this. I’m thinking hard copy votes might be an attempt to make sure the president of Diebold Corp. hasn’t tried to hand another election to a close friend of his. There was some fairly strong evidence that the second coronation of G.W. Bush was rigged in that manner. ‘Technicians’ would appear at a critical polling station, check the machines for glitches, hand the parties responsible for the count a piece of paper with the results scrawled down and say, “oh, sorry, because we did find major problems with the inner workings of these machines, we had to get the results, here, and then we had to reset the machines back to zero – so this is the only record of this election that you have.” – And the ‘technicians’ walked away and vanished, never to be heard from or seen again.

Patagonia.
This tweet really caught my attention, I had to look up where in the world Patagonia actually is.

— Wikipedia says, “Patagonia is the sparsely populated region located at the southern end of South America, shared by Chile and Argentina.” – Looks like most of it is in Argentina.

photo of what looks like an island floating in the sky.
And this cool photograph – my guess is it was taken on a brilliantly foggy day – looks like an island floating in the sky.

— & I will leave you with this. Have a wonderful night and an even better tomorrow.

Montreal & Pit Bulls
Montreal & Pit Bulls —> Link to More Information <—

=====

— One woman was killed by a Pit Bull in Montreal last year.

— So they passed a law making it illegal for any ‘new’ Pit Bulls to come into Montreal. And existing Pit Bulls can stay if their owners pay astronomical licensing fees, and keep their pets muzzled when outside the home, even on an enclosed balcony.

— How many people were attacked and/or killed by Human Beings in Montreal last year?

— Shouldn’t they ban Human Beings from Montreal? And levy insane fines on the ones who stay, so everybody gets the message and realizes the intent is to encourage you all to move somewhere else?

— Are Human Men the most violent creatures on this planet? Should Montreal ban all Men from entering and levy high fees on any men who stay there? Would that solve the problems? — And maybe we should just muzzle them all?

 

Oh Dangit – Too Much Good Information That Needs Sharing To Let Me Sleep –

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016 — 85°F / 29°F — Too hot with too much bright sunlight in Ithaca, NY @ 1:45 pm —

Ireland Jailed 3 Banksters. Why Haven't We.
Ireland Jailed 3 Banksters. Why haven’t we?

— If I took the time to get large screen shots of everything I thought was important in news feeds and twitter feeds today I’d never get to sleep.

US Intelligents reports that WikiLeaks is not an arm of Russian Intelligence.
U.S. Intelligence says WikiLeaks is not a political arm of Russian Intelligence.

— Those who believe – “It’s not illegal if you don’t get caught” want to vilify all good reporters. WikiLeaks is not your enemy. Dishonest, megalamaniacal, micro-managing – manipulative, power-crazy politicians ARE.

Krishnamurti quote. Labels are violence.
– Wish I’d said that – [ Wow ]
— Defining yourself is an act of violence? Holy Cow! Why didn’t I think of that? Calling yourself a Republican is vilifying all Democrats? Calling yourself a Democrat is demonizing all Republicans? “Ego is the human soul desperately trying to believe that it is limited to a human body and one short lifetime” < Jim Wellington > – That’s how I got mixed up with all this blogging and stuff – I’d always been a writer, I thought it was an obsession – This guy muttered one phrase at a writers’ workshop and blew a thousand of my most worrisome misconceptions all to hell. – No, I’m a truth seeker, embracing any truth I can verify and wanting to share that with all the rest of us lost and exhausted pilgrims desperately hungry and thirsting for Truth, Mercy, Spirituality, Personal Evolution – This is not an obsession, it’s a calling. I want to share everything that makes me feel good about being alive with everybody else who’s starving for peace of mind.

"Republican Refugees seek asylum in Democratic Party.
– This might be politically motivated nonsense, but it’s too funny to pass up.

— If reformed Republicans really want believe in themselves again and sleep nights (or days if their biological clocks are half as mixed up as mine is) – They’d be better off seeking asylum in the Green Party. Remember a Y2K bumper sticker with an animal that was half Donkey and half Elephant – a two headed ‘push me pull you’? Calling them “Republicrats”? Why keep voting for the same old [stinky stuff]? Haven’t we had enough of this nonsense? My wonderful, adorable daughter says, “Jeeze – it looks like everybody’s trying to drive back all human progress to the madness that started the first world war-” And she’s too young to remember the first Desert Storm idiocy.

Caterpillars can't understand butterflies.
“When she became a butterfly all the caterpillars shunned her-” ?

— Caterpillars can’t understand butterflies. Morons with their heads stuck up their Ice-Holes can’t understand anyone who isn’t as stupid and destructive and greedy as they are. Donald J Trump does not have a prayer of being able to understand anybody who believes in Bernie Sanders [ at least, not in this life ]. People who believe they have a right to destroy everybody else’s quality of living in pursuit of a little profit will never understand conservationists. Frackers will never understand anyone who wants to be able to drink pure, unpoisoned water. Oil Company executives will never want to understand why anybody would ever want to share renewable energy that costs almost nothing and provides better energy, more and better jobs, healthier people and a lot less stress than gasoline, gas and oil – { at least, not until it’s too late and they realize they’ve shot themselves in their own crotches }.

Lake Tahoe
On a less serious note –

— I thought it might be a good time to post a photo of a beautiful world that is not yet spoiled and poisoned by the [ snar ] coming to California from the Fukushima disaster. People who are not muzzled by lying unethical political motivation are warning that Fukushima’s radiation has already poisoned too much of the Pacific Ocean, we might already be beyond any hope of undoing the effects of some of the deadliest poison known to humans – { unless those rumoured aliens/angels come to our aid with their radiation eating technologies. Pray for help, guys – }

Leopards in Botswana.
This is a tribute to Jim and Cathi’s cat, Domino.

— Rest In Peace, Domino – you taught me that cats can be fun to play with.

Huge Hungarian Guard Dog
Now that’s one serious looking guard dog. { he said, flawlessly elucidating the painfully obvious – }

— Like I said, there’s much too much important looking information flying around the Tweet-Us-Sphere to ignore today. Most of it is probably based in truth. But, like always, don’t take my word for it. Get out there and investigate! Use your brain before it doesn’t even help your cranium in its function as hat rack.

— Please, God, Can I get some rest now?
