Paul Krugman: The Great Health Care Coverup (NY Times Blog)
The moral rot in the Republican party runs wide as well as deep. All we need to save America is a few good men - but apparently all we have are two decent women. And that's not enough.

It was, as one Twitter pundit put it, a very good day for cancer.

Stephen D. Foster: 45 Quotes To Use When Describing Conservatives And Republicans To Your Friends (
Humorists, politicians, writers, journalists, comedians, and even US Presidents have left us with many quotes that describe conservatives and Republicans. Here's our updated collection with the 45 best quotes about Republicans. If you're a liberal, these are well worth book marking. If you're a conservative, the truth hurts, doesn't it?

Why I'm A Conservative - And Republicans Aren't
"I have occasionally questioned why we let Republicans get away with calling themselves "conservatives" when they don't seek to "conserve" anything except the bank accounts of the very richest people, and their program is one of the destruction of time-honored programs, practices, and principles. Mitch McConnell's systematic dismantling of Senate norms is a good example of this." - Jim Burt

Stuart Heritage: The life-changing magic of paying someone else to tidy up (The Guardian)
Researchers in Canada have found that spending money on a cleaner brings much more happiness than material goods of the same value. Of course it does - life's too short for tidying.

Garrison Keillor: A new idea about Amelia Earhart (Washington Post)
At the age of 75, I'm coming to realize that I may never know for certain what happened to Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, on their round-the-world flight that disappeared in the South Pacific in July 1937. I have been in love with her forever and it's painful to have no resolution, only the same old theories.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Globophobia is a fear of what object(s)?

       Balloons                                                      Source

Globophobia is a fear of balloons. The source of fear may be the sound of balloons popping.

Globophobia is uncommon, but sufferers include Oprah Winfrey, So Ji-sub, and Doug Stanhope. Generally, globophobics will refuse to touch, feel, or go near a balloon for fear it will pop.        Source

Mark. was first and correct with:
   Globophobia is fear of balloons.

   Balloons. I saw a sight rather like this going to work one morning several years ago. Shifting point of view kept me from getting an accurate count.

   Balloons…Thank you Marty for your continuing diligence as we trudge through this dystopian era of chaos and destruction of our freedoms!

Deborah responded:
   You'd think from the name it's the fear of globes. Nope - fear of balloons.
  Around here we have many hot air balloons, most out of Napa, that take off from a town 11 miles north of us and drift south and east into the outskirts of our city. Often they land in vacant fields close to where I live. They're fun to watch. Once, one was really close, and you could hear the whoosh of the gas jet. My friend's Great Dane freaked out and hid under her dining room table. We laughed so hard at that. Now I know the dog had globophobia.
  Happy Birthday! Can't believe it's been 16 years already! Gosh, the kids grow up so fast…(c;

Kevin K. in Washington, DC replied:
   Well, I looked it up and I know it's balloons. But I'm sticking with my original answer, which is: Balls. Fear of balls; a malady that appears to have befallen the GOP, as they fail to find the balls to stand up to Trump.

Billy in Cypress said:
   Globophobia is the fear of balloons popping.

Joe S     wrote:
   As everyone knows it is the irrational fear of balloons. I am NOT afraid of balloons, unless they are tied to, or being held by clowns. I am also afraid of clowns, with or without balloons. Clowns are just plain creepy. That is not an irrational fear, clowns.
  Happy birthday to the E Page Marty! I haven't been with you for the entire 16 years but it's been close. Thanks for all you do.

HBO Standup Special

Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart is bringing his comedy to HBO.

The network announced Wednesday that Stewart will return to the network for his first stand-up special since 1996.

Stewart is also set to host the "Night of Too Many Stars" tribute in November benefiting Next for Autism, which will feature sketches, short film and standup comedy.

HBO president of programming Casey Bloys said Stewart's two upcoming appearances are "part of a larger deal" the network has with the entertainer, but he did not elaborate.

Gets Hollywood Star

Jason Bateman

Emmy-nominated actor Jason Bateman was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, 30 years after breaking into the movies in "Teen Wolf Too."

"Friends" star Jennifer Aniston, who appeared in five films with Bateman, and Will Arnett, his cast mate on television's "Arrested Development," gave speeches paying tribute to his staying power.

"I just simply feel very, very grateful and fortunate to have had a chance to hold my job in a business that's not known for its longevity," said the 48-year-old actor.

He added that he felt lucky "being able to work with enough good people to not only learn an enormous amount, but to find in them some friends that have changed the way I see the world."

Michael Jackson Estate Owes $9.4 Million

Quincy Jones

A jury on Wednesday found that Michael Jackson's estate owes Quincy Jones $9.4 million in royalties and production fees from "Billie Jean," ''Thriller" and more of the superstar's biggest hits.

The award from a Los Angeles Superior Court jury fell short of the $30 million the legendary producer sought in the lawsuit filed nearly four years ago. The Jackson estate had put the figure at about $392,000.

Jones claimed in the lawsuit that Jackson's estate and Sony Music Entertainment owed him for music he had produced that was used in the concert film "This Is It" and two Cirque du Soleil shows that used Jackson's songs.

The lawsuit said the entities had improperly re-edited the songs to deprive Jones of royalties and production fees, and that he had a contractual right to take first crack at any re-edit or remix.

The Jackson camp held that Jones should only be paid licensing fees for songs used in those three productions. Jones claimed he was entitled to a share of the overall receipts from them. The estate had no immediate comment on the verdict.

Wild Rabbits Surf On Sheep

New Zealand

It was a woolly ride, but three wild rabbits managed to escape rising floodwaters in New Zealand by clambering aboard sheep and surfing to safety on their backs.

Ferg Horne, 64, says he's been farming since he left school at age 15 and has never seen anything quite like it.

He was trudging through pelting rain to rescue a neighbor's 40 sheep from the floodwaters on Saturday at their South Island farm near Dunedin when he spotted some dark shapes from a distance.

He was puzzled because he knew his neighbor, who was away in Russia attending a nephew's wedding, didn't have any black-faced sheep. As he got closer, he thought it might be debris from the storm, which had drenched the area and forced Horne to evacuate his home.

Then he saw the bedraggled rabbits hitching a ride - two on one sheep and a third on another sheep.

Digby's Hullabaloo


What Climate Change?


Scientists are "very worried" that the Greenland ice sheet might start to melt "faster and faster", a leading scientist has said.

The problem is that the warmer weather is allowing more dark algae to grow on the ice.

Because ice is white, it reflects much of the sun's energy, but dark algae absorb the heat, increasing the rate of melting.

The Greenland ice sheet is up to 3km thick and would raise sea levels by seven metres if it all melted into the sea. The current rate of melting is adding about 1mm a year to the global average sea level.

Now a team of scientists has begun a new five-year research project, called Black and Bloom, to discover how algal growth might affect this, BBC News reported .

Duped Into Fake Interview With Russian Comedians

Rick Perry

U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry (R-Dim Bulb) optimistically discussed expanding American coal exports to Ukraine and other energy matters during a lengthy phone call this month with a Russian prankster who Perry thought was Ukraine's prime minister.

Perry actually was talking with comedians known in Russia for targeting celebrities and politicians with audacious stunts, Energy Department spokeswoman Shaylyn Hynes said in a written statement.

Pranksters Vladimir Krasnov and Alexei Stolyarov are sometimes called the "Jerky Boys of Russia," after an American duo who put out recordings of their prank phone calls in the 1990s. They have made faux calls to British singer Elton John, who thought he was speaking to Russian President Vladimir Putin, and others.

During the 22-minute call on July 19, Perry, whose department oversees the U.S. nuclear weapons program, discussed a range of topics in a business-like tone, including sanctions against Russia and helping Ukraine develop oil and gas.

Perry also discussed the Paris climate accord and coal exports on the call.

Pro-Putin Congressman Accused Of Violating Sanctions


A new complaint filed with the Treasury's Office of Foreign Asset Control alleges that California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Reprehensible) and his staff director, Paul Behrends, violated the Magnitsky Act when they tried to get Russia's deputy general prosecutor, Victor Grin, removed from the US sanctions list last year.

The complaint was filed by US financier Bill Browder, the founder of Hermitage Capital Management, who spearheaded the Magnitsky Act in 2012 to punish Russian officials suspected of being involved in the death of his account, Sergey Magnitsky.

Magnitsky uncovered a $230 million tax fraud scheme in 2008 when he was working for Hermitage that implicated high-level Kremlin officials and allies of President Vladimir Putin. He was later thrown in jail by the same Interior Ministry officers he testified against during criminal proceedings to punish those involved in the tax scheme, Browder said in 2015, and died in custody after being held for 358 days.

The complaint Browder filed on July 21 alleges that Rohrabacher "made personal introductions for lobbyists advocating the Russian government's and Grin's position against the Magnitsky Act." Those people, according to the complaint, include Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin - both of whom attended a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower last June to discuss a possible repeal of the Magnitsky Act.

Religious Freedom Ambassador


Donald Trump (R-Buffoon) intends to nominate Republican Kansas Governor Sam Brownback (R-Dumbass) as ambassador at large for international religious freedom, the White House said on Wednesday.

Brownback, who previously served in both the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, would assume the position created in the State Department by the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998, of which he was one of the key sponsors.

In 2015, Brownback issued an executive order protecting the religious freedom of clergy and organizations that opposed same-sex marriage as Kansas began to comply with the landmark ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court legalizing gay marriage.

"We ... recognize that religious liberty is at the heart of who we are as Kansans and Americans, and should be protected," Brownback, governor since 2011, said at the time of the order. He was re-elected in 2014 and is not eligible to serve a third consecutive term.



Who Loves Him The Most


Donald Trump (R-Delusional) has cast aside stories about White House infighting, describing the leaks as employees bickering over "who loves me the most".

In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Mr Trump said his Justice Department should start cracking down on federal employees who leak to the media - except those who have positive things to say about him.

"Number one, they should go after the leakers in intelligence," he said. "I don't mean the White House stuff where they're fighting over who loves me the most, OK? It's just stupid people doing that."

It's unclear which stories Mr Trump was referencing in his comments, which elicited laughter from the room. But the press has been replete with stories about White House intrigue in recent days, as the Trump administration has undergone a dramatic staffing shakeup.
