    COVID-19 News

    I think it's one thing to abide by the laws, take precautions, and still do research and ask questions. I think it's entirely another to call Covid pseudoscience as more than 2M are dead worldwide, call for superspreader events like concerts, while having money be your motivation. Making an...

    Did Bill Cooper Plant the Seeds for the QAnon Conspiracy?

    Not sure about Cooper himself, but the exact same conspiracy nonsense like that gets kicked around this topic are the same as what led to Q in my mind. I mean, joint military-alien bases under Dulce, with bodies in vats so the aliens can eat them. Breakaway civilization nonsense. Aliens landing...

    COVID-19 News

    If we've learned anything by going through the Trumpian era, it's that purposeful misinformation kills. Van Morrison has been clear - Covid dangers are 'pseudoscience' and he wants the lockdowns lifted so he can make money. Which clearly is exactly the same conspiracy thinking pseudo-criticism...

    Yup. It's wild how little folks here understand how things like that really work, even though we depend upon it - and as citizens in fact own it for the most part.

    Totally hear and agree with you. Not all companies approach this stuff the same way. I’m talking about projects that I’m aware of and tangentially involved with, that I can’t discuss here.

    What Are You Listening To?

    Speaking of movie soundtracks... remember when they were good? This one literally changed the course of my life, at least as far as music tastes go: Got me into Peter Gabriel, Depeche Mode, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the Replacements... all some of my faves for decades now. All because of this...

    COVID-19 News

    What I'm saying is that most (smart) organizations recognized that we couldn't count on Keystone being there to build a business strategy on - so other transportation strategies were planned. Don't get me wrong, Keystone would be a net positive for us, but most current business plans have been...

    COVID-19 News

    The funny thing is that the strategists and executives in every mid-to large size oil company up here has known that Keystone was dead or too late for years. It literally no longer is part of most strategies. Even if it comes on-line, it will be too late because of the sandbagging. It's a...

    What Are You Listening To?

    Into the mystic is one of my favourite songs ever. Oddly enough, I discovered Van Morrison by loving the 80's movie 'Dream a Little Dream' as a kid. Too bad he's a covid denier. It's certainly made me think twice about him.

    The Pentagon UAP Task Force Report Due By Summer 2021

    I'm totally cynical. Not only do I think they won't disclose much, if anything... I don't think they have much to disclose at all. I mean, the tic tac and fast mover videos are interesting, but they don't tell us anything we don't already know. If anything, there has been comparable...

    Insurrection USA 2021

    He's a classic broken narcissist. Here's the narcissist's prayer:

    Insurrection USA 2021

    He will never take accountability. America has taught him that he doesn’t have to, because he’s white and pretends to be rich. Many Trump supporters are no different. It’s always someone else’s fault, even if you have to invent an enemy that doesn’t exist.

    Insurrection USA 2021

    Trump said today that his comments inciting the insurrection were appropriate, and Pence refused to invoke the 25th to remove him. The GOP is over.

    Insurrection USA 2021

    To throw one more thought out there... over beers one of my conservative friends a few months ago said breathlessly something to the effect of: "Can you believe that the University has a safe room? One where liberal students can go to get away from conservative viewpoints and be safe because...

    Thanks very much Constance! I know we don't always see eye to eye but I sincerely appreciate the comment.
