01) This is How Easy it Was to Convince Trump to Reauthorize Arctic Drilling


“President Trump recently discussed what it took to convince him to reauthorize drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: a quick phone call from a “friend” that’s “in that business” (i.e. a donor). He claimed to not really care about drilling until they called, then decided to quickly add it to his tax reform bill to appease them. Of course, he’d want to appease him seeing that the fossil fuel industry contributed millions of dollars to his presidential campaign and inauguration committee.

Happy National Pizza Day!…

Woo Hoo!!!

I Love Pizza!!!

A Pizza Poem:

Pizza for you!
Pizza for me!
Pizza’s so good,
in the tum, tum, tummy!

Pizza’s so good,
it will always please!
Make sure the next pizza’s,
Extra, Extra Cheese!

What Pizza Means to Me:

I really appreciate pizza quite a lot…It’s been in my life, and nourished me, as far back as I can remember.

My favorite pizza, is kind of hard to specify…because I like so many of them…

…I love four, five and six cheese pizza…

…But I also love tomato, bacon ranch pizzas…

…And this local place I like to go to, has a deep dish pizza…essentially a supreme…it goes by the title “sublime”…and I love it…I’ll bet you’d love it, too…

I love Mexican pizza…I love spinach artichoke pizza…I love this kind of pizza, commonly called “summer pizza”…it’s like a BLT, with miracle whip instead of pizza sauce…So good…

I even love pizza’s cousins…bread sticks…cheese sticks…and cinnamon sticks…and calzones…

Geez, I really want some pizza!…

…Think I’ll go out and get one!

Jordan Peterson Propagates the Same Old Lines Against ‘Pedophiles’?…

01) “One of the interesting things to know about pedophiles” Jordan Peterson “They’re predatory”


“In this lecture, He continues with the analysis of the Disney film Pinocchio to illustrate the manner in which great mythological or archetypal themes inform and permeate both the creation and the understanding of narratives.”

I’ve not watched the Pinocchio lectures, so…

…Not sure if this was all a set up, for something unexpected…or if Jordan was just smearing “pedophiles” as being “predators”.

Ultimately…I am not shocked, and never expected Jordan to be especially well informed about this issue.

01) 7 Things You Might Not Know About Tiny House Community Life

“A few years ago, almost no one had even heard of a tiny house. But now? Across the nation, more than a dozen cities are become officially tiny-home friendly and 50-plus communities of tiny homes have cropped up—everything from intimate backyard co-ops and tiny house/RV parks to upcoming full-on urban developments.

My main squeeze, Christian and I have had the pleasure of becoming temporary residents of more than a dozen of tiny home communites, of all kinds. If there’s one thing we have learned, downsizing into a tiny structure is just the beginning. Living tiny, especially in a community setting, is a total rethink of daily life and what it means to be a neighbor.

Everyone gets fed
Chemistry is everything
Life happens outdoors
A tiny house is a sanctuary, not an attraction
There’s always room for pets
Your neighbors have your back
Neighbors become family”

Nice article.

01) Sheriff On Killing Suspect: “I Love This Sh*t” (VIDEO)


“Sheriff Oddie Shoupe didn’t know that the body cam was still recording him.

“A Tennessee sheriff is being sued for using excessive force after he was recorded boasting he had told officers to shoot a man rather than risk damaging police cars by ramming him off the road.

“They said ‘we’re ramming him,’” Sheriff Oddie Shoupe of White County said on tape in the aftermath of the killing of suspect Michael Dial. “I said, ‘Don’t ram him, shoot him.’ Fuck that shit. Ain’t gonna tear up my cars.”

Shoupe arrived on the scene shortly after police had shot Dial at the conclusion of a low-speed chase, clearly upset he had missed the excitement.

“I love this shit,” Shoupe said, apparently unaware that his comments were being picked up by another deputy’s body-worn camera. “God, I tell you what, I thrive on it.

“If they don’t think I’ll give the damn order to kill that motherfucker they’re full of shit,” he added, laughing. “Take him out. I’m here on the damn wrong end of the county,” he said.

Shoupe’s comments have prompted a federal lawsuit from Dial’s widow, Robyn Dial, alleging the use of excessive force against her late husband, who was unarmed.”
