An overcast and gray early-evening Tuesday here on California’s north coast, supposedly ‘Mostly Sunny,‘ or ‘Partly Cloudy‘ the next 10 days, probably-likely a mixture of both.
Chilly right now…
First post in 11 days — my old, overheating HP laptop finally fried-out on me, and I’m now working on a brand-new Acer Chromebook, ordered via Amazon.
UPS guy dropped it off this afternoon.
The Chromebook already seems a winner — appears easy to use, and getting it started-up and running has been easier than I figured.
Humanity has been going to shit in a wire basket, and in the past 11 days apparently we’re getting into even deeper doo-doo — especially when we have a deranged asshole in charge. Probably in the long run, the worse shit from the T-Rump during the G7 get-to-gather (The Hill):
“I’m an environmentalist. A lot of people don’t understand that,” Trump said, citing his experience filing environmental impact statements for real estate developments.
“I think I know more about the environment than most people,” he added.
“I want clean air. I want clean water. I want a wealthy country. I want a spectacular country with jobs, with pensions, with so many things. And that’s what we’re getting.”
“At the same time, it’s very important to me … we have to maintain this incredible place that we’ve all built,” Trump continued.
The U.S. has “become a much richer country. And that’s a good thing, not a bad thing. Because that wealth allows us to take care of people.”
“I’m not going to lose that wealth,” he said.
“I’m not going to lose that on dreams. On windmills.”
The T-Rump is a most-vile, lying, fat-ass piece of shit. He’s only into ‘that wealth,’ and that’s all — the Washington Post this evening:
President Trump has instructed Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue to exempt Alaska’s 16.7-million-acre Tongass National Forest from logging restrictions imposed nearly 20 years ago, according to three people briefed on the issue, after privately discussing the matter with the state’s governor aboard Air Force One.
The move would affect more than half of the world’s largest intact temperate rainforest, opening it to potential logging, energy and mining projects.
It would undercut a sweeping Clinton administration policy known as the “roadless rule,” which has survived a decades-long legal assault.
Bad shit happening…
And this a prime number:
As we go: “Chipping around, kick my brains around the floor
These are the days it never rains but it pours“
