Marc Dion: Trump's Turn to Write the Check (Creators Syndicate)
To get it out of the way, I live in a poverty stricken midsized city in Massachusetts. We used to have a textile and garment industry, and now we do not. We're a heroin overdose city, a wear-pajama-pants-to-Wal-Mart city. State and federal money props up our schools, our police force and our fire department. About 75 percent of kids in local schools get lunch for free.


Mark Shields: The Opposition's Very Wrong First Step (Creators Syndicate)
In the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan instructed Haley Barbour - his White House political director and a future Republican Party chairman and governor - on building a winning coalition: "The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally - not a 20 percent traitor."


Lenore Skenazy: Hating on Moms (Creators Syndicate)
Remember the bad old days when a rape victim would show up in court and the defense attorney would say, "Why was her skirt so short?" As if the woman caused her own rape. Only gradually did it dawn on us that this is blaming the victim. Once we recognized how cruel and clueless this is, we became a more empathetic society. Except when it comes to moms.


Ted Rall: The Rules of Resistance to Trump (Creators Syndicate)
Rule 1: Anything for survival.
As a teacher, Beauvoir would have lost her food rations, ID papers and livelihood if she hadn't signed an odious Vichy-required certificate swearing that she wasn't a Jew. Though she was appalled, she signed. You're not required to starve to death over a principle.


Froma Harrop: When Trump Goes Low, Media Can Go Away (Creators Syndicate)
The threat to throw reporters out of the White House press office is a recent effort to move the spotlight from Trump's sinking currency to a thin-skinned press corps. "I want 'em out of the building," a tough (but not tough enough to be identified) Trump official told Esquire. "We are taking back the press room." Well, they can have it. The reporters should be out uncovering the seediness rather than responding to Trump's latest provocation. They are entering a golden age for American journalism and should know it.


James Hamblin, M.D.: There Are No Shortcuts to Stop Aging (Blue Zones)
Live a generally active lifestyle, stay socially connected, don't be over stressed, sleep well, eat reasonably in moderation and consume a mostly plant based diet. There hasn't been a breakthrough or any silver bullet or short cut to stop the process of aging.

Trivia Question from Yesterday


What was Janis Joplin's only number one single?


       "Me and Bobby McGee"                                                      Source


"Me and Bobby McGee" is a song written by Kris Kristofferson and Fred Foster, originally performed by Roger Miller. Others performed the song later, including the Grateful Dead, Kristofferson himself, Kenny Rogers and The First Edition and most famously by Janis Joplin, whose posthumously released version topped the U.S. singles chart in 1971, making the song the second posthumously released No. 1 single in U.S. chart history after "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding. Billboard ranked Joplin's version as the No. 11 song for 1971.

Joplin recorded the song for inclusion on her Pearl album only a few days before her death in October 1970. Kristofferson had sung the song for her, and singer Bob Neuwirth taught it to her. Kristofferson did not know she had recorded it until after her death. The first time he heard her recording of it was the day after she died. Joplin's version topped the charts to become her only number one single and in 2004, her version of this song was ranked No. 148 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.        Source

   Didn't we address this question a couple months ago? It seems very familiar.
  Janis Joplin's only #1 single was "Me and Bobby McGee", a song written by Kris Kristofferson. That woman had some pipes and some problems, which is probably why she flamed out so quickly.
  More rain Friday, and more expected today and tomorrow. No matter, my husband and a friend (whose wife's aged knees won't allow easy mobility) and I are driving to Sacramento shortly for a sister march. I'm stoked to rep for something in which I believe so strongly.
  As many peaceful transfers of power I've experienced, yesterday's was surprisingly visceral…I felt it was more a day of mourning, then a day of celebrating. The next 4 years may be quite exhausting.




Adam answered:
   Didn't we have this one before?
  Me and Bobby McGee




Dave in Tucson replied;
   Is it my imagination or has this question recently been asked? Janis Joplin's only number one single was Me and Bobby Mcgee.



Billy in Cypress responded:
   Janis Joplin's only number one single was "Me and Bobby McGee" which hit No. 1 a few months after her death.
  This question seemed like deja vu or am I experiencing premonitions.




DJ Useo said:
   I love Janis! She is sorely missed. I got all worked up about her & forgot to answer the question. Lol.



  My Crumplstock set got bumped to Saturday, so it would be during the Flask Lounge club performance, so you missed it live. However, I will be doing an after-show live set at the same Crumplstock address on Sunday night.

I took friend Kathy and her niece to the metro station at 6 AM. It was wonderful seeing women in pink pussy hats, women with signs, and loving, patient men dropping them off for the trip into D.C.

After report--Kathy & Laurel had a wonderful experience AND a lot of fun! They're so glad they participated. They found kindness ans sisterhood everywhere they were today. They were RIGHT IN FRONT of Madonna.

After I picked them up, we went to my favorite Thai restaurant in Herndon--the place was packed and LOTS of the patrons (male & female) had been to the march--people were talking to strangers, coming over to chat with us. There was happiness, joy, and sisterhood all over the restaurant--and delicious food.

Women's March on Washington

Ashley Judd

Actress and political activist Ashley Judd brought the house down at the Women's March on Washington, a rally that drew an estimated 500,000 demonstrators in protest of P-resident Donald Trump (R-Pendejo).

Crowds went berserk for the big-screen actress as she waxed poetic in R-rated language on women's rights and the perceived threat the new administration poses to those liberties.

Judd read a poem from 19-year-old spoken word poet, Nina Donovan, from her home state of Tennessee. The actress shared a video of Donovan to her Facebook page late last year.

"I am a nasty woman. Not as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheetoh dust," she began, eliciting cheers from the main stage area on Independence Avenue.

Much of the poem played on the theme of what it means to be a nasty woman, in reference to a remark Trump made against Hillary Clinton during the last presidential debate.

LGBT Page Removed

WhiteHouse.Gov

Minutes after Donald Trump (R-Philanderer) was officially sworn in as president on Friday, the LGBT rights page was taken down from the White House and Departments of Labor websites. The site's removal may draw alarm to the millions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens who might feel concerned about losing some of the protection granted to them under the Obama administration.

Previously, whitehouse.gov/lgbt provided information about legislative LBGT progress over the past eight years. It also offered support programs for the LGBT community such as "It Gets Better Project," which aimed at inspiring LGBT youth who may be facing discrimination and contemplating suicide.

Now, the new page reads "Sign up for updates from President Donald J. Trump!" or "Sorry, the page you're looking for can't be found" next to the president's seal. All of the information about the LGBT community that could be found on the WhiteHouse.gov webpage during Obama's presidency can now be accessed on ObamaWhiteHouse.gov.

Trump was called the "most pro-LGBT nominee in the history of the Republican party" in October by the Log Cabin Republicans, an organization that works with the Republican Party to ensure equal rights for members of the LGBT community in Washington, D.C.

Trump told "60 Minutes" in November that same-sex marriage was "settled" by the June 2015 Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges. The 5-4 verdict guaranteed marriage for gay couples as a fundamental right.

Mars Investigating

Red Skittles

A mysterious Skittles spill on a rural highway in Wisconsin is taking another twist, with Mars Inc. saying it doesn't know why the discarded candy might have been headed to become cattle feed.

The case began when a Wisconsin sheriff posted on Facebook this week that "hundreds of thousands of Skittles" had been found spilled on a highway. Later, he updated the post to say the candy had fallen off a truck on its way to be cattle feed.

Only red Skittles had spilled out, and Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt joked in the post that it would be difficult to "Taste the Rainbow" in its entirety. The incident gained attention after CNN wrote about it, citing a report from a local affiliate.

A variety of food byproducts are commonly used for animal feed, and Mars says it has procedures for discarding foods for that purpose. However, the company says the Skittles in question came from a factory that doesn't sell unused products for feed.

"We don't know how it ended up as it did and we are investigating," Mars said.

Expands Climate Goals

California

California released a sweeping plan to cut the state's output of heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions on Friday, countering the newly-minted Trump administration's move to undo federal U.S. carbon regulations.

The plan drew battle lines for an expected clash with P-resident Donald Trump (R-Grifter) over climate change, including a fight over the state's decades-old authority to set emissions limits that are far stricter than those in many other parts of the United States.

California's plan details how the state would achieve its goal of cutting emissions 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, which state air regulators called the most ambitious target in North America.

Trump has cast doubt on the degree to which human activity causes climate change. His nominee for secretary of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, this week expressed doubts about the science behind climate change and said EPA rules should not hurt economic development.

The California plan includes an extension of the state's controversial carbon cap and trade program and calls for the state's oil refineries to cut their greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent.

Sharia Law

Texass

The Texas Supreme Court agreed Friday to hear a Houston case that top conservatives hope will provide an opening to challenge the landmark 2015 ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide.

Reversing its previous ruling, the state's highest civil court set arguments for March in a lawsuit seeking to halt same-sex spousal benefits that America's fourth-largest city offers its municipal employees. The nine Republican justices had ruled in September not to hear the case in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling from the previous summer that gay marriage was constitutional nationwide.

But Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and state Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a subsequent brief saying that the case could serve as a platform to help Texas restrict the scope of the high court decision.

"Major constitutional rulings by the United States Supreme Court routinely give rise to waves of litigation exploring the contours and limits of the court's pronouncement," the three Republicans wrote in an October brief. "This case is one of many cases that will require state courts to examine the scope of the right to same-sex marriage announced by the Supreme Court."

The reversal Friday followed a slew of separate briefs signed by dozens of other state elected officials, conservative activists and religious leaders who asked the state Supreme Court to defend religious liberty and take a stand on social issues. They argued that Texas should challenge not only the U.S. Supreme Court's legalization of gay marriage but also its striking down this past July of many of the state's tough abortion restrictions.

Visits CIA

T-rump

P-resident T-rump visited CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., on Saturday to offer words of assurance after sharply criticizing the outgoing head of the agency, as well as the broader intelligence community, for weeks.

"There is nobody that feels stronger about the intelligence community and the CIA than Donald Trump," he declared a day after he was sworn in as president.

"I just want to just let you know: I am so behind you. And I know maybe sometimes you haven't gotten the backing that you wanted. And you're going to get so much backing," he said. "You're going to say, 'Please don't give me so much backing. Mr. President, we don't need so much backing,'" Trump continued, drawing laughs from the crowd. "But you're going to have that. And I think everybody in this room knows it."

In the freewheeling speech Trump further boasted that most of the people in the room voted for him, said he would "end it" when it comes to Islamic extremism, criticized the press and wrongly asserted that the crowd at his inauguration stretched as far as the Washington Monument.

"I have a running war with the media. They are among the most dishonest human beings on earth, right? And they sort of made it sound like I had a feud with the intelligence community. And I just want you to know that there's a reason you're the No. 1 stop: It is exactly the opposite," he said.

FBI

A former FBI employee in New York was sentenced to two years in prison on Friday after admitting that he illegally acted at the direction of a Chinese official to gather sensitive information.

Kun Shan Chun, also known as Joey Chun, was also ordered by U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero in Manhattan to pay $10,000 after pleading guilty in August to having illegally acted as an agent of a foreign government.

Chun, a U.S. citizen who was born in China, was arrested in March in connection with what prosecutors called a duplicitous betrayal of the FBI, which had employed him in its New York field office since 1997.

Prosecutors said that beginning in 2005, Chinese individuals claiming to be affiliated with a China-based printer products manufacturer called Zhuhai Kolion Technology Company Ltd solicited an investment from one of Chun's parents.

Chun, 47, first met purported Kolion associates during a 2005 trip, and met them abroad at several other times, eventually meeting a Chinese official who asked him about the FBI and surveillance practices and targets, prosecutors said.

Lcebergs Closer To Breaking Off

Antarctica

Just 6.4 miles of ice are holding an iceberg the size of Delaware onto the floating Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica, and scientists warn it could cleave off the ice-bound continent at any time.

Researchers who closely monitor the crack cutting across this particular Antarctic ice shelf reported on Thursday that it continued to make rapid progress, expanding another six miles in just the past two weeks.

This means that a collapse may be imminent, at which point, one of the top 10 largest icebergs ever observed will break away into the turbulent seas off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula.

Scientists affiliated with a group that has been tracking the ice melt in this area, known as Project MIDAS, say the iceberg could measure 5,000 square kilometers, or 1,930 square miles.

Scientists are worried that the calving event - which refers to the breaking off of the iceberg from the ice shelf - could speed up the disintegration of the broader shelf and land-based ice that lies behind it.

Bill Compels Mediation

Hawaii

A Hawaii lawmaker said Friday he plans to introduce legislation that could force Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg into mediation before he is allowed to buy real estate on Kauai island.

State Rep. Kaniela Ing said Hawaii's sugar barons long employed laws Zuckerberg is using to take land from Native Hawaiians. He said Zuckerberg is "completing the theft."

"Zuckerberg may be acting more transparent than folks who exploited this law in the past, but it doesn't make it right," Ing said. "I just hope he understands the context of his actions in the history of our state."

Zuckerberg last month filed lawsuits to identify owners of 14 parcels interspersed with his 700-acre spread hugging a stunning white-sand beach so he could pay them and buy the land.

If passed, Ing's bill would likely take effect July 1. It would apply to Zuckerberg's cases if they are still ongoing.
