  • Seems to me that if people are being paid by the government to post comments online, they are Federal employees engaged at Federal jobs

FW: Top 3: Trapped in the Rio Grande Valley

That memorial is really something.

As stark and impossible to miss as the horror of the day itself.

FW: [new-continuum] a sliding scale of justice

Fair warning: This book will make you angry.

Just the review makes me more angry than is good for me right now….

FW: Top 3: Judges Ordered Obamacare Defunded

The judge who in 2009 declared that if Stephen Hawking had lived in the UK,* the National Health Service would have refused to cover him, has now issued a ruling which will strip more than six million working-class people of their coverage.

Because freedom. And typos.

Subject: [new-continuum] IS THIS COOL OR WHAT.

I’ve no doubt that you all can do this

The Carrot Clarinet

It’s a recorder rather than a clarinet, but definitely cool.

I wonder how it would sound with a bagpipe reed in it.

Warning to Anyone Who Skypes with Me Regularly

Skype is going to force me to “upgrade”.

I hope it isn’t as disastrous as the last forced “upgrade”, when MSN got impatient with the lack of interest people were showing in “Outlook” and decided to just murder Hotmail and force us to “upgrade” to a “superior”service which provided fewer options and less flexibility.

So, if you find it impossible to Skype with me in future, either the new Skype did not install correctly, or worse yet the new Skype *did* install correctly, or I just deleted the whole Goddamned thing and will never, ever Skype again.

"'How is a way out of these difficulties to be found?' It seems to us that there is only one answer to this question: we must recognize, and loudly proclaim, that everyone, whatever his grade in the old society, whether strong or weak, capable or incapable, has, before everything, THE RIGHT TO LIVE, and that society is bound to share amongst all, without exception, the means of existence it has at its disposal. We must acknowledge this, and proclaim it aloud, and act up to it."
Peter Kropotkin, The Conquest of Bread (via herbivorexvx)
