    Btw, y'all won't hear a lot from me the next week and a half - driving up to Philly tomorrow for Philcon, then taking our time to drive from there to Chicago for Windycon. Any folks from here, come look...

    Just one bit of data related to all this USSR Was Evil.... My grandfather was in the Tsar's Army (he plaed trombone in the band....) In 1914, he deserted, and spent weeks walking, and riding in farmers' hay carts (and...

    The obvious other song would be Bogle's Green Fields of France....

    Sorry, but that's a load of horse hockey. Try this on for size: the Southerners thought *they* were the Real Americans, and the Northerners weren't, esp. since so many immigrants were coming into the North (like those subhuman... Irishmen). And,...

    Greg wrote: 3} A suggestion from Planck Telecope observations, that the Universe is not "flat", but closed ... Citation, please! I want to read it! I've always been a fan of the toroidal universe, which explains everything.......

    Back in the late sixties, I think, or the beginning of the seventies, I was at a Philly Folk Festival (longest, largest continuously running folk festival in North America at this point), and the MC introduced someone I'd never heard...

    Nahhhh... need to refurbish the sunken WWII battleship Yamato.... Starblazers!...

    Wait, did you think only Harlan had a amount of wrath approaching infinite as a limit? Y'know, back in the mid-nineties, a 'Net friend told me they were going to number my rants, and then never did. Would have been...

    Bullshit. You're using really, um, "interesting" definitions and distinctions between the words nation and state. The South, as the Confederacy, *certainly* considered itself a country, a nation, and a state. The fact that it was over slavery was *also* over...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Yep. The West was *really* looking forward as the USSR collapsed, figuring they were going to own the pieces. They were upset that the locals got it.... And the Ukraine was part of Russia for a hell of a long...

    Heh, heh. heh. "Draft Dodger Rag", Phil Ochs. "Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die Rag", Country Joe and the Fish...

    Maybe. For one, esp. since McConnell is asking for it, I'll bet that Pelosi does *not* have a roll-call vote, but electronic... which hides who voted which way. For another, some Senate GOP are starting to actually get worried about...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Ok, in the US, the House, this morning, voted on the impeachment inquiry resolution, that the Orange Idiot and the GOP have been yelling about... and the GOP isn't just trying to move the goalposts, they're trying to tear them...

    Yes, the unemployment rate. For the 4,278th time, I'll mention that the actual Labor Dept report has, in fact, two seperate lines - 6 and 9. 6 is the one that shows the low labor rate... and it's cooked, and...

    Damn, half a continent away.......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    In some cities, such as the DC metro area, housing less than a mile from the Metro (subway) is more expensive than farther, and the closer to the station, the higher the rents/prices. Of course, we *are* talking about people...

    I will note that a number of cities, DC among them, have a "circulator" bus, that goes around through the downtown area, that is free....

    Time to put on my Leonard Cohen collection, with the CD that has Democracy is coming...to the USA.......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Is this the second or the third time the courts said NO? I *think* this time, the courts get to decide, and good deal....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Just for everyone's amusement.... Excerpt: In the end of things, when there are no more distractions and nothing more to throw overboard, and thirst and hunger begin to overcome the last occupants of the lifeboat at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, they're...
  • Commented on Creative writing challenge!
    I'm not *quite* as bad as the classic.... Back in the early nineties, hanging out on usenet, I occasionally dipped into alt.usenet.recovery, and the ultimate was "It's 2am, my beautiful girlfriend is naked in bed, but coming back from the...

    As long as it wasn't done in 3-D (shudder). My ex, stepson, and a friend or to went to see Pacific Rim when it came out, in the theatre, and due to timing, wound up seeing it in 3D. It...

    I'm sorry, are you trying to suggest the Alfar are already here, and in the US? Because I'm having trouble distinguishing between what you suggest should have been their modus operandi and the GOP and its base.......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Yeah, about that... we *are* talking about the US and the Pentagon. Too bad 'bout that historical city.... and I think it was the Pentagon who invented the neutral phrase "collateral damage"....

    Y'all better appreciate my story. Admittedly, my SO had to stay up till almost 1 to take an antibiotic, but she was waiting for me to come to bed, and there I was, coming up with this piece of silly...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Oh, shit... "the USA's armed might". Consider the Alfar, mostly in one large group... and a flight of B-52's doing a carpet bombing. Look at the pics from during 'Nam. The Alfar couldn't begin to handle that.... Rearranging the nice...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Ah, yes: in the US, when the GOP's in power, and the markets are doing well, then it's due to their President. If the Dems are in power, then it's due to the previous GOP President's influence. Oh, unless the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    It... could have been worse for them. Consider them coming out in, say, the American southwest. Or aiming for the center of Kansas.... My, what a pleasant thought: the Alfar and the psycho "2nd Amendment" types going after each other...

    Someone here mentioned about the then-PM showing up in Brussles in, um, 2119, for the traditional signing of the Brexit extension.......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    This morning, I realize I do, in fact, have pictures: I've got one of myself and my first wife, along with #1 Daughter (around 1 yr old) on my back... on the floor at the People's Constitutional Convention, that was...
