The PeePee hoax is a story about Trump, in Russia, hiring prostitutes to pee on a bed in a room the Clintons slept in. Total fabrication. The Russian collusion was also a total fabrication, unless we are talking about Hillary who was richly rewarded by Russians after approving the sale of 20% of our uranium to our nuclear nemesis. The Obama administration entrapped American hero General Flynn because he was going to revamp the DHS. Carter Page was prosecuted over a letter the CIA sent to the FBI confirming he was a CIA asset in Russia, but a low level FBI lawyer was just punished for editing that memo to say Page did not work for the CIA, which led to our three year forty million dollar Special Counsel investigation of Trump. His punishment? Kevin Clinesmith got a 100 dollar fine and 100 hours of community service. Ask yourself, if a law officer can fabricate false evidence and lie to the John Roberts controlled FISA court, cause a massive amount of fake news and distraction to the President himself, and walk out free with a $100 fine, do you think anyone is safe from fabricated evidence? The FBI knows they can fabricate anything to get anyone, now.
Mike Lindell isn't the only cancel culture victim. My favorite social media app suffered a coordinated attack from AAPL, GOOG, and AMZN, because it was the #1 app being downloaded as people got tired of big tech censorship. They actually killed the app. AMZN was hosting it, and by contract needed to give Parler 30 days notice if they wanted to cancel service. They gave Parler less than thirty hours notice before they vaporized them. Meanwhile, Twitter is still allowing Iran to post about wiping out the Jews without concern from anyone.
I don't know much about social media apps or Parler. I am not dismissing any recent events. I have considered past events more than the current ones. I used to watch recordings of congressional hearings. There are big stinks but few peoplein high positions get punished so to me it is mostly show. It is usually the little guys that get hit with prison time and big fines. Below is only one example.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentagon_Papers The Pentagon Papers, officially titled Report of the Office of the Secretary of Defense Vietnam Task Force, is a United States Department of Defense history of the United States' political and military involvement in Vietnam from 1945 to 1967. The papers were released by Daniel Ellsberg, who had worked on the study; they were first brought to the attention of the public on the front page of The New York Times in 1971. A 1996 article in The New York Times said that the Pentagon Papers had demonstrated, among other things, that the Johnson Administration had "systematically lied, not only to the public but also to Congress.
I watch some of Edward Snowden's videos and videos of other people that told the public the CIA and other government agencies were collecting data on ordinary citizens and violating constitutional rights.
IMO both Snowden and Assange are heroes and should have been pardoned by Trump. I don't expect Obama/Biden/Harris to be ethical about any of this. I was hoping Trump would be, but, the unethical machine kept him busy with distractions and he still accomplished a lot to help all Americans.
I wasn't a fan of Assange when he first came to light, but I no longer believe the assertions of the powers that be that he put American troops at risk.

I don't kink shame. If someone is into watching muscular men in tight clothing run around and sweat that is their business, although I worry when those grown men put the names of rapists on their jerseys and ignore the true victim because of some odd concept of "justice".
My sports interests are limited to things like women's beach volleyball, and will remain so until the Biden mandate to kill women's sports results in junk hanging out of the bikinis.
Well "piss-take" is a new term to me. So was "Great Oxidation Event" Until yesterday. I heard there were 5 major extinctions but I didn't remember the earlier ones were about.
I knew about the giant asteroid or comet that crashed into the ocean floor off the coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula 66 million years ago and deposited the KT boundary.
Scientists have found a graveyard that offers evidence of how quickly it all happened. In North Dakota, the unique site is filled with a wide variety of plant and animal species—fish, burned tree trunks, conifer branches, dead mammals, mosasaur bones, insects, the partial carcass of a Triceratops, marine microorganisms called dinoflagellates and snail-like marine cephalopods called ammonite—that all died at once.
Burned tree trunks in North Dakota surprised me but then again there were lots of fires around the world at the time.
.....the algorithm concluded that while the “big five” mass extinctions are part of the top 5 percent of all time population change events, so are “seven additional mass extinctions, two combined mass extinction–radiation events and 15 mass radiations.”

Oxygen causes corrosion. Increasing O2 levels increaes fire risks. Given enough oxygen, otherwise stable combustibles can spontaneously ignite. It's really amazing when normal healthy chemicals get banned for no real reason.
This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)
petrushka: Just attended a lecture on local history. Apparently the Presbyterian Scottish refugees who settled here called a 'frolic', what the Amish would call a 'barn raising'. First a working bee, then dancing and feasting.

mirrororchid: Sorry, dude. I think resentment has been the fuel for action in some SMs. It can be part of a process, eventually helpful.
