Your president is unhinged:
Did he really do this?

AP: Do you feel like that's one thing that you've changed, that you maybe are actually asking the direct questions about some of these things?
TRUMP: Yeah. Let me give me an example. A little before I took office there was a terrible article about the F-35 fighter jet. It was hundreds of billions of dollars over budget. It was seven years behind schedule. It was a disaster. So I called in Lockheed and I said, "I'm sorry, we're going to have to bid this out to another company, namely Boeing," or whoever else. But Boeing. And I called in Boeing and I started getting competing offers back and forth. ...
TRUMP: I saved $725 million on the 90 planes. Just 90. Now there are 3,000 planes that are going to be ordered. On 90 planes I saved $725 million. It's actually a little bit more than that, but it's $725 million. Gen. Mattis, who had to sign the deal when it came to his office, said, "I've never seen anything like this in my life." We went from a company that wanted more money for the planes to a company that cut. And the reason they cut -- same planes, same everything -- was because of me. I mean, because that's what I do.

Because that is revolutionary.  He really isn't beholden to anybody, he isn't worried about how much money people might give or withhold from his war chest.  But he does seem to not like getting ripped off by a defense contract.

How is that unhinged?

Science / Re: The future looks cool
Something I've learned in the last 9 years of researching climate change and weather, is that eventually the actual data is either published, leaked, or somebody figures out how to access it and make it available to anyone.  Toto pulls back the curtain, and that changes things.  Of course the fanatic or hard nosed capitalist will still want to spin things, but it becomes much harder when everybiody has an app on their phone that shows reality.

That shit, having mass access to data and reality, that changes things.  The dictator knows this, but the fanatic does not.

This can't happen fast enough


Especially the rooftops and parking lots covered with solar panels.  The idiocy of not using the sun as a power source has got to end.

In a completely unrelated but still awesome future is cool way, we watched the digitally restored Wizard of OZ last night. The movie looks so completely awesome now, it is beyond amazing.

These new satellites will do it all.

Very precise lightning trackers, among other things.  Real time hurricane imaging, it's fucking awesome.

They even track the sun
Donald Trump's nomination is the first time American politics has left me truly afraid - Ezra Klein
That's because you were born in 1984, and don't really know shit about American politics.

You don't know about Nixon, or the war,
