I had a blog

but given yesterday's news, I think I'll let it ride. (Besides, it really needs more development anyway.)

Let us all ponder the cycle of life here on this mote of dust, and give comfort to those in need.

Heard there was a debate last night, didn't watch it. Instead I decided to wait for the comedy wrap up this morning. Despite recording his before the debates, Jon Stewart wrapped it and everything in our political world up pretty soundly.

Three Types of Bullshit

The Artifice of Debate
Author: BobR    Date: 08/05/2015 13:10:23

Tomorrow night is the first Republican debate of the 2016 presidential campaign season. In years past, primary debates were typically held in the states where primaries were about to be held, sponsored by the local newspaper, and - ostensibly - focused on the issues important to those residing in that state. The big national primaries between the two selected candidates were conducted by the League of Women Voters.

Things have changed quite a bit. On the national level, the League of Women Voters bailed on the process when the two major parties escalated demands to the point where they simply threw up their hands and walked away. On the primary level, things have changed too.

While primaries may have been sponsored by newspapers, the papers at least had a reputation for reporting news on a generally sober level. Their editorial pages may have a slant one way or the other, but fact-based reporting was the norm. That was even the case with network news (pre-cable), back when it was considered a loss-leader rather than a profit center.

Which brings us to the present day.

Good Morning.

Today is our 411th day back in Iraq. It's our third iteration now, as earlier this week marked the 25th anniversary of Iraq invading Kuwait (August 2), which started this entire affair, but I digress.

There have been no new casualties reported.

We find today's Cost of War passing through:

$ 1, 630, 909, 300, 000 .00

Good morning.

According to the Twitter machine, there is a very good chance that Joe Biden may run for President.

I am not sure how this would work politically. Our current President has all but endorsed Secretary Clinton and she is really doing pretty well in the polls.

The Great Leap Forward

Predictably, the histrionics started within minutes of the membership policy changes being announced.

I’ve already tangled with a “Christian” in a comments section; he immediately decided that I was gay, and I was very glad of the access to “young flesh” granted me in a Scout uniform. Initially I was not going to reply, but then I pointed out that he must be without sin and should cast the first stone. There was no response on his behalf to the use of teachings that he allegedly follows.
