FLOODING WORD PRESS – So I try to combine several thoughts in one post, like here.


WONDERING WHY I never read anything on WP about the funny musical election parodies on  youtube. I figured they were considered to be in poor taste or yawl didn’t know about them, so I was cowed into keeping quiet about them.  My plebian self thinks they’re funny.


LEARNING THAT Quora used to pay for entries (the wilder the better?).  In seeking how to comment to one posting I ran into a delightful “space” in Quora’s gizzards, by Alexander Lehmann who lives in Germany and has 10 “spaces” whatever that means:  I’m following him now.


STILL STEAMING ABOUT  Saudi Arabia and other OPEC oil producers that are discussing an output increase of up to 500,000 barrels a day, the group’s delegates said:  WSJ News per Dr. Rex.


I LOOKED IT UP FOR YOU:  Recently I asked how one can buy Forever U.S. stamps at cut rate over the internet, a deal apparently separate from the U.S. Post Office.  Either no one one knew either, or didn’t read my post.  What I found on Google, after giving up on getting an answer to my blogged question,  was:

If you’re scrolling through social media and find a deal on postage stamps, be wary. News 8 On Your Side is hearing more frequently from viewers with questions about stamps. For example, Susan in York sent this email: “I have seen many ads for rolls and sheets of USPS forever postage stamps for sale on Facebook. They run from $19.99 to $39.99 for 100 stamps. Are these usable? Many people including myself have ordered them and they do come, but is it legal to use them?”  The Postal Service makes it clear that it does not sell postage stamps below face value.  A first-class stamp costs 58 cents, so a roll of 100 stamps should cost $58.  So, if you spot an ad to buy stamps for $20, that’s too good to be true.  If you do buy counterfeit stamps, try to use them and they’re discovered by the postal service, your mail could be confiscated.  The Postal Service recommends that you buy stamps from approved vendors. That can include legitimate big-box or warehouse retailers who do provide small discounts on postage stamps, but that is through resale agreements with the Postal Service:



IS FEELING GUILTY BAD?  Many conservatives appear to believe we should keep the truth from young Americans so they won’t feel bad about their forefathers.  Problem is, feelings of guilt is what fuels the conscience.  Would they admit that throwing the conscience out the window (as many of them have) is preferable to learning the truth?  You may say that youngsters shouldn’t feel guilt about what their forefathers did, but if not understanding the truth feeds current racism, what then?  I was  reminded of the destructive fuel in the impact of the Thanksgiving story told almost everywhere by almost every one, save the natural inheritors of this country.  You may have read a slightly truthful reference to it, but I learned things today that blew my mind.  I won’t repeat them here, but check it out.  A new book is David Silverman’s  This Land Is Their Land: The Wampanoag Indians, Plymouth Colony, and the Troubled History of Thanksgiving


SO THERE, CONSERVATIVES! The quick actions of a retired army major and a drag performer in high heels took down the gunman before he reached a crowded patio: Times Headlines


TOO MUCH GOOD STUFF TO REPORT:  The current New Yorker Climate Issue, especially Elizabeth Kolbert’s Annals of a Warming Planet: Climate Change From A to Z is well worth reading for yourself.   Countries responsible for half of all historical CO emissions are:

United States 24.5%

China 14%

Russia 6.8%

Germany  5.5%

One hundred and ninety countries are responsible for the other half:

Whew!  Almost midnight! Goodnight, guys…
