Nada Bakos: This is what foreign spies see when they read President Trump's tweets (Washington Post)
Every time President Trump tweets, journalists and Twitter followers attempt to analyze what he means. Intelligence agencies around the world do, too: They're trying to determine what vulnerabilities the president of the United States may have. And he's giving them a lot to work with.

Benjamin Soskis: What if philanthropy isn't the best way for rich people to help others? (Washington Post)
Charity might temporarily improve the condition of the poor, but philanthropy would abolish poverty itself. That critique has kept much of its power in the present day.

Carol Glatz: Don't worry how it's spent, always give homeless a handout, pope says (Catholic News Service)
People who don't give money to the homeless because they think it will be spent on alcohol and not food should ask themselves what guilty pleasures they are secretly spending money on, Pope Francis said.

Andrew Tobias: Why Risk To Children's Nervous Systems Is A Sensible Trade-Off (Sarcasm)
And think of it this way: sure, some children may suffer damage to their nervous systems. But thanks to Trump and the Republican Congress, those kids and all the rest of us will shortly have great health care at a tiny fraction of the cost. So it shouldn't be hard to fix them.

CORAL DAVENPORT: Counseled by Industry, Not Staff, E.P.A. Chief Is Off to a Blazing Start (NY Times)
In the four months since he took office as the Environmental Protection Agency's administrator, Scott Pruitt has moved to undo, delay or otherwise block more than 30 environmental rules, a regulatory rollback larger in scope than any other over so short a time in the agency's 47-year history, according to experts in environmental law.

Carolyn Kellogg: The guilty pleasure of reading Hollywood memoirs (LA Times)
Memoir is another matter. Idiosyncratic and biased, obfuscatory and boastful, even unctuous and vain, the Hollywood memoir is not going to portray the past in a clear light. But like Sriracha on the table, it's going to bring the heat and make the meal better. So much better.

Greg Braxton: Still crazy after all these 50 years: Lily Tomlin and producer George Schlatter reminisce about 'Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In.' (LA Times)
Some industry observers have credited the show with giving presidential candidate Richard Nixon a major boost when he appeared in a brief cameo.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

"Gabba Gabba Hey" is a catchphrase associated with what musical group?

       The Ramones                                                      Source

"Gabba Gabba Hey" is a catchphrase associated with the punk rock band the Ramones. The phrase is included in the song "Pinhead" (1977), which contains the lyrics: "Gabba gabba, we accept you, we accept you, one of us." The song ends with: "Gabba gabba hey, gabba gabba hey!..."

The phrase comes from a scene in the 1932 motion picture Freaks, in which the title characters chant the line "Gooble, gobble, we accept her, we accept her, one of us, one of us!" (The Ramones saw Freaks at an art house cinema on a rare day off when an outdoor event they were to perform at was canceled due to bad weather.)        Source

And it's not enough to think your asinine, juvenile thoughts--you had to follow Predator's example and tweet them to the world? I hope both of you ROT AND DIE. They are not fit to serve this country. What a great way to dishonor every professional who has worked in civil or military government service to serve and protect all of us!

Not A T-rump Fan

Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking has warned that Donald Trump's (R-Crooked) decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change could "push the Earth over the brink" and lead to a point where global warming is "irreversible".

At an event to mark the theoretical physicist's birthday, Mr Hawking told BBC News on Sunday he believes the President's decision will cause avoidable environmental damage to the planet for generations to come.

"We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible. Trump's action could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulphuric acid," he said.

He added that climate change is one of the "great dangers" facing the planet, which can be prevented it action is taken now.

By denying the evidence of climate change and pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, the President "will cause avoidable environmental damage to our beautiful planet, endangering the natural world, for us and our children," Mr Hawking told the broadcaster.

Teaser Released

'Will & Grace'

NBC dropped a 40-second teaser for the upcoming "Will & Grace" revival on Wednesday, July 4.

The clip opens with Jack (Sean Hayes) smiling towards the camera while sitting on his swivel chair. Karen (Megan Mullally) stands in front of a sign that has her name and laughs. Will (Eric McCormack) and Grace (Debra Messing), meanwhile, goof off and dance to the tune of James Brown's hit song, "I Got the Feelin'."

Karen and Jack seem to still be best frenemies as the promo cuts to Karen slapping Jack's face. Instead of taking offense, the latter smiles at Karen and kiss her on the lips, before both of them take a bow. Will and Grace are then shown together in one frame before all four cast members join each other in front of the "Will & Grace" signage.

According to TV Line, "Will & Grace" Season 9 will kick off on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 9 p.m. EST. Ahead of "Will & Grace," NBC will release new episodes of America Herrera's "Superstore" at 8:30 p.m. EST. The revival is expected to have a total of 12 episodes and will pick up 11 years after the finale, which aired on May 2006.

Letter To Madonna Heads To Auction

Tupac Shakur

In a handwritten prison letter expected to bring over $100,000 at auction, Tupac Shakur confesses to Madonna that he ended their brief romantic relationship because of her race.

For you to be seen with a black man wouldn't in any way jeopardize your career - if anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting," the rapper wrote in the note, dated January 15th, 1995 at 4:30 a.m. "But for me, at least in my previous perception, I felt due to my 'image,' I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was. I never meant to hurt you."

The letter, available to read in full via TMZ, will go up for auction at the Gotta Have Rock and Roll sale, scheduled for July 19th to 28th. Rolling Stone has confirmed the letter's authenticity.

In the note, Shakur admits that Madonna shattered his ego when she remarked in an interview, "'I'm off to rehabilitate all the rappers and basketball players' or something to that effect." But the MC also apologizes to the singer, confessing, "Like you said, I haven't been the kind of friend I know I am capable of being."

New Show To Compete


FOX canceled "American Idol" after 15 seasons in April of last year, but ABC has decided to reboot the highly-popular reality TV competition in May.

According to TV Line, FOX is now looking to create a new singing reality TV show to pit against the "American Idol" reboot and NBC's "The Voice." Variety revealed that FOX's show will be different from "American Idol" and "The Voice" since the four finalists will be selected in the first episode. Every week, new challengers will compete against them and may take their spot if their performances are not up to par with the judges. The winner will be named in the finale.

As of late, FOX has not yet revealed that official title for the show, but it is the brainchild of Israel's Armoza Formats, the company that produces "The Final Four" outside the United States. However, the same title will not be used in the U.S. to avoid confusion with the NCAA tournaments. Other details about the new show are still being kept under wraps.

Meanwhile, FOX CEO Dana Walden released a statement in May to defend the network's decision to not revive "American Idol." "It feels bad knowing it's coming back on another network… It felt to us, after taking meetings with production company Fremantle, like it would be extremely fraudulent to bring the show back quickly," she said.

Thieves Nailed

Hobby Lobby

Federal prosecutors say Hobby Lobby Stores has agreed to pay a $3 million federal fine and forfeit thousands of ancient Iraqi artifacts smuggled from the Middle East that the government alleges were intentionally mislabled.

Prosecutors filed a civil complaint in New York on Wednesday in which Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby consented to the fine and forfeiture of thousands of tablets and bricks written in cuneiform, one of the earliest systems of writing, as well as other artifacts that prosecutors say were shipped without proper documentation.

Hobby Lobby executed an agreement to purchase over 5,500 artifacts in December 2010 for $1.6 million. Prosecutors say acquisition of the artifacts "was fraught with red flags" and that packages bore shipping labels that described their contents as "ceramic tiles."

A dealer based in the United Arab Emirates shipped packages containing the artifacts to three different corporate addresses in Oklahoma City. Five shipments that were intercepted by federal customs officials bore shipping labels that falsely declared that the artifacts' country of origin was Turkey.

In September 2011, a package containing about 1,000 clay bullae, an ancient form of inscribed identification, was received by Hobby Lobby from an Israeli dealer and accompanied by a false declaration stating that its country of origin was Israel.

Huge Antarctic Ice Block

Larsen C Ice Shelf

A chunk of ice bigger than the US state of Delaware is hanging by a thread from the West Antarctic ice shelf, satellite images revealed Wednesday.

When it finally calves from the Larsen C ice shelf, one of the biggest icebergs in recorded history will be set adrift -- some 6,600 square kilometres (2,550 square miles) in total, according to the European Space Agency (ESA).

The iceberg's depth below sea level could be as much as 210 metres (almost 700 feet), or about 60 storeys, it said.

"The crack in the ice is now around 200 kilometres (125 miles) long, leaving just five kilometres between the end of the fissure and the ocean," the ESA said in a statement.

The Larsen C shelf will lose more than 10 percent of its total surface area.

Polishing A Turd

Indiana GOP

Republicans are trying to do everything they can to make their unpopular healthcare bill popular, but there's only so much you can polish a turd.

Take what happened in Indiana this week. Members of the state's GOP asked the public to send them their Obamacare horror stories, then were flooded with positive recollections of the bill.

"Did you lose a doctor that you liked? Have your premiums increased? Did your insurer leave the exchange? Are burdensome regulations hurting your small business?" the party asked on Facebook.

Here's what the "liberal trolls" had to say:

"Thanks to the ACA we could both run our family business instead of me working 40 hours at one job and 40 at the other. Had to stay employed for the insurance (which was still pricey). But we could afford to keep my husband on insulin. Thanks Obama for not letting diabetes be the reason he dies," one commenter wrote.

"I don't have to decide between my $300 a month medication and food anymore. I get regular check ups. My health is better than it's ever been. Take away our health insurance and see what happens," one woman wrote.

Lady of Cao


Introducing the Lady of Cao: using high-tech 3-D printing and based on the skull of an ancient mummy, scientists have reconstructed the face of a woman who governed in northern Peru 1,700 years ago.

The woman's mummified remains were discovered at the Cao Viejo adobe pyramid in 2006 in the Chicama Valley, just north of the modern city of Trujillo.

The woman, dubbed the Lady of Cao, belonged to the Moche culture that thrived in the northern coastal region between 100 and 800 AD.

She had been buried with metal items and wooden scepters wrapped in copper that symbolized the power she wielded when she was alive.

Archaeologists say she is the first known female governor in Peru. Before this experts did not belive that women had any governing or religious authority in pre-Hispanic Peru.



15,000 Immigrants Become US Citizens

July 4 Tradition

With nearly 15,000 people being sworn in as American citizens on Independence and in the days leading up to the holiday, critics have used the occasion to take jabs at Donald Trump (R-Corrupt).

Every year, thousands of people achieve their dream of becoming Americans in public spaces across the country. It is a long-cherished tradition in the US - a country that has traditionally prided itself on its willingness to bring in people from other countries looking for a better life.

But, with Mr Trump looking to impose limits on legal immigration into the country, some of his critics have used the naturalisation ceremonies to try and draw a contrast to the exclusionary rhetoric coming from the White House.

"Whenever you feel that future is threatened, whenever those values of liberty and justice for all that drew us here seem under assault, you need to speak up and speak out," California Senator Kamala Harris said at one of the naturalisation events in Los Angeles in an apparent reference to Mr Trump's push back on immigration.

Ms Harris is a daughter of immigrants from India and Jamaica. She's California's first black senator, and the first Indian American US senator in history.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
