DOJ Declines to Prosecute James Comey for Leaking Classified Info

Thursday, August 29, 2019

The watchdog office said Comey broke FBI rules by giving a memo containing unclassified information to his friend Daniel Richman with instructions to share the contents with a reporter. The office also said Comey failed to notify the FBI after he was fired that he had retained some of the memos in a safe at home. Comey wrote a series of memos about conversations with President Trump he said unnerved him. Comey has stated he wanted to make a record of the interactions because he was concerned President Trump might later lie about them.

An army of hungry little sea urchins could save Hawaiian reefs

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

A diver holding urchins just 15 to 20 millimeters in width. The animals, native to Hawai’i, are known to eat at least five species of invasive algae. (Hawaii Division of Aquatic Resources/) There are a lot of stories of introduced species gone wrong.

As humans continue to warm the planet, these foundational organisms will be lost to bleaching, in which warm temperatures lead corals to eject their zooxanthellae; the bleached corals are left vulnerable to disease and stress and sometimes die as a result.

Great article about a great piece of innovative work.

Well worth the read.

The writer unfortunately puts in the opinion that there is “global warming” and it’s caused by humans.

Both “facts” are arguable.

I would have rather seen the writer focus on how the reader could help.  For example, does the urchin deploying center take donations?  Is there a gofundme page to spin off a similar effort in a different country?  How can people support this effort?

But, everything has to have a political spin to it.

Sigh!

No secret that I am not a fan of any politician, bureaucrat, or most “celebrities”.

But sorry, your “personal life” is not off-limits when you are holding a position of “public trust”.

“One man cannot do right in one department of life whilst he is occupied in doing wrong in any other department. Life is one indivisible whole” ― Mahatma Gandhi

So, let’s have the facts out on the table.

Seems like she’s immoral to her own claims.

Argh!

ADMINISTRIVIA: Google site specific search results may be unreliable

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

2019-Aug-27

On my Jasper Alumni newsletter blog, I try to always check my resources for Class Year before bothering my fellow alum Mike McEneney to look it up for me.  That’s why I really want a wiki.

So today I did a Google Search on “DeLorenzo” site:jasperjottings.com and it didn’t find anything.

Not unusual!

But I also did a search locally on my Marsedit blog posting tool and I was shocked to find a result!

http://www.jasperjottings.com/2012/jj2012W45.html#mozTocId724941

????

Right there. Obvious!!!

I am stunned!

The mighty Google may be wearing the Emperor’s new clothes.  Maybe its search results are more flawed than anyone realizes.

Speechless!

Say it ain’t so.

Public schools ‘rip off’ parents with monkey-making supplies scheme

Sunday, August 25, 2019

One PS 333 employee blasted the arrangement as “kickbacks for crayons.”“They’re ripping parents off,” said the staffer who asked not to be identified for fear of retaliation.“Their prices are really inflated when compared with other retailers that carry the exact same products.”Over the summer, PS 333 emailed parents 11 reminders to buy from Yubbler, touting the “discounted prices” and extra funds for the school.

The Gooferment Skrules, just like any part of the Gooferment, is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy. And often stupid!

Argh!

Why do they even exist except as a “jobs program” and a political force for politicians?

Argh! Squared!

California Governor Blames Texas For California’s Policies That Caused The Homeless Crisis

Sunday, August 25, 2019

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com, California’s authoritarian governor, Gavin Newsom, blamed the state of Texas for California’s homeless crisis. Rather than put the blame directly on the policies California has instituted that stifle free enterprise and punish heavily those who produce, Newsom said it’s the fault of Texas.

The sad truth is that socialism doesn’t work and it never has in all the times it’s been tried.  Humans are not meant to be slaves and eventually, they figure out that no one has a higher claim over their lives than they do.

*** end quote ***

“The answer certainly isn’t socialism. Middle-class voters currently presume that elites already control the government—so why would they want to give the bureaucracy any more power?” — RAHM EMANUEL was the 44th mayor of Chicago https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/05/middle-class-americans-are-sick-elite-privilege/589849/

Payback: Democrats rig Tulsi Gabbard right out of their next debate

Sunday, August 25, 2019

It goes to show that the Democrats are still the same old Democrats, and up to their old rigging tricks, putting their thumbs down on the scale for the candidates they prefer. They’ve done it before, against Bernie Sanders, and now they are doing it again to avenge Harris.

So there will be NO “peace candidate” in the 2020 D field.

So sad.

Just goes to show that the “anti-war” activists of the 60’s was astroturf!

Maybe I should be a Quaker?
