Sep

Monday, 9P ET on CNN
Presidential debate #1

Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY

IF WISH TO EXPRESS YOUR OPINION CONCERNING THE OMISSION OF THE TWO ALTERNATE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES CONTACT CNN NEWS SOURCE @

If you can’t think of anything to say on your own, here is a copy of the first email I sent to CNN news

To the Political News Division and the Advertising Department:

I am very unhappy that only Trump & Clinton are scheduled for your Presidential Debate on September 26, 2016.

In my opinion all four Candidates that are registered and officially running for office should be included in any televised debate so the American Public can make an informed and intelligent choice.

Believe it or not there are other candidates for the presidency beyond the corrupted 2 parties we hear about every day.

The Mainstream Media could do the right thing and let the American people know they have more choices than tweedle-dee and Tweedle -dum…….as a matter of fact CNN has gained some support from the town halls they held with Libertarian candidate, Gary Johnson…..

The Libertarian Party Town Hall event hosted by CNN on Wednesday night was the highest rated show on cable news in the coveted 25-54 demographic for the night.

More than 1.6 million viewers tuned in to the hour-long event featuring Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson and vice presidential candidate William Weld.

Perhaps more important than the raw numbers is the massive uptick in viewership for Wednesday’s event compared to a similar Libertarian Town Hall discussion hosted by CNN on June 22. Overall viewership was up 74…

AT LEAST SCAN THIS IF YOU’RE MY FRIEND.

I don’t care if you agree with me & chuq but I so agree, never mind the candidates feelings, not including them HURTS America and is totally BIASED. WoW who could have seen that coming. I’ve looked into both the alternates and I’m going with Stein too. I know, I know, I keep saying I’m writing-in Bernie….and it still is tempting but it will do about as much good as my threat to write-in myself. I did have the start of the makings of a good Cabinet though.

I could understand that the Primary Debates had to be weeded down but the actual election; THERE IS NOT EXCUSE. I’m taking most of tomorrow to try and email and/or write the broadcasting venues with this opinion AND TO DO MY LITTLE PART; I’m re-blogging this on my puny site and emailing this post to many of my friends and enemies even. If I think they will consider it…..I’m going for it.

In Saner Thought

It is only a matter of weeks before we have our first debate between the Mouth and The Warmonger….but to be fair there should be two other candidates in this debate…Gary Johnson and Dr, Jill Stein……

If a candidate is on the state’s ballot then they should be part of the process…..polling should have nothing to do with the debates…..

After the Republicans and Democrats finished their conventions in late July, the Green Party gathered this month to nominate Dr. Jill Stein for the presidency.

fter the Republicans and Democrats finished their conventions in late July, the Green Party gathered this month to nominate Dr. Jill Stein for the presidency. Stein’s campaign—with her party on ballot lines in the majority of states, and her poll numbers surging ahead of Green numbers from recent presidential elections—has the potential to be a breakthrough bid for the Greens, and for a more robust…

It is late but I want something….it took me forever to figure out what but I finally figured out I want a dill pickle….so I’ll be right back.  (5 minutes pass & crunching can be heard)

I’m back and while I was crunching my gianormous dill over the sink, I remembered I’d saved a post or two from Trkingmomoe’s Blog, to peruse at my leisure, so I went looking and found this one.  Not that it will do me much good tonight…or morning really…but I’m virtually eating with my eyes and will show this recipe to “HE” tomorrow and maybe this weekend “HE” will try making it.

“HE” may not obey but he is a whizz in the kitchen in regards baking and making and likes to make weirdest stuff. Last week it was kefir.  Also he can can and I can’t or won’t ……..hee hee hee……..

I’ll let you know how it turns out. Thank you Momoe for what looks to be another “home run in the kitchen”; I’m hoping “HE” will jar up this weekend. ~~dru~~

Pineapples are in the stores for Easter cooking.  Every year I make pineapple jam from wonderful fresh pineapple that I have let ripen on my kitchen counter until it is golden yellow.

DSCN0963

The fruit is sweeter and juicer if you let it ripen.  I twist the tops off to replant in my garden.  I live in South Florida and pineapple grows here very well as a landscape plant.  Just peel off the little leaves at the bottom of the stem to expose about a inch of it.  That is where the stem will send out roots.

DSCN0964

Then place the stem in a jar of water covering only the stem bottom that has been exposed.

DSCN0965

In a few week there will be roots and you can plant it in a pot of good potting soil.  You can raise it in containers or if you live in a warm climate that doesn’t…

QueenBESSbyIsaac Oliver

Painting by Isaac Oliver

“She wears a floating ruff, a neckline ruff, and an outer ruff. Her veil and the towering headdress are amazing. Her neckline in this idealized portrait is taking a plunge to levels characteristic of the first decade of the new century and there are three ruffs – a neck ruff detached from the rest, a neckline ruff, and and outer ruff. According to Norris, Tudor Costume and Fashion, p. 608 (Dover re-issue 1997), “…The serpent is symbolical of subtle wisdom (‘as wise as serpents’), and the eyes and ears on the orange drapery or lining of the fawn outer robe imply that Her Majesty saw and heard everything. The crown mounted on a turban-like headdress of the early fifteenth century; and the bodice of linen, embroidered with floral designs, is the first example of a vogue very popular during the following reign. Contrary to her usual custom, the Queen is wearing her hair in ringlets, perhaps to give the illusion of youth, while the chin ruff serves to mask her sinewy neck.”

What is This?

 WHAT IS THIS?

PHOTO of a Benthic Ctenophore   SeaSlug1

A benthic ctenophore,Coeloplana sp?. Note partially everted set of tentacles. Off East Point, 6m, Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia. June 1987. PHOTO: Bill Rudman.

Ctenophores, commonly called Comb Jellies or Sea Gooseberries, were previously considered to be Cnidarians, because like jelly fish and sea anemones, ctenophores also have nematocysts. Today they are considered to represent a separate Phylum, the Ctenophora. Most are pelagic animals, spherical in shape, which swim by bands of large beating cilia, arranged in vertical rows, each band being likened to comb, hence the name “Comb Jelly”. The ‘jelly’ is a reference to Jelly Fish. Ctenophores catch their prey by everting two groups of stinging and sticky tentacles.

There are however a small group of ctenophores [Platyctenida] which have evolved into benthic ‘slugs’. At first glance they are usually considered to be flatworms, but if you look at them carefully you will find a pair of pores or swellings which indicate the chambers in which are stored the stinging tentacles. Quite often found on soft corals, like acoel flatworms, there are only a few described species, but probably many yet to be recognised. Most are less than 10-15mm long.

These are not slugs, but because they look like they could be, I have a page for them on the Forum. They are benthicCtenophores. These animals, also called ‘Comb Jellies’ or ‘Comb Jellyfish’ are usually pelagic animals found swimming or drifting in the plankton. They have a pair of long branched tentacles for entangling their prey which can be retracted into sacs in their body. Your animal is one of a small group which live sedentary non-swimming lives attached to the sea floor or objects. The two ‘ear-like’ structures in your animal are the sacs into which the tentacles retract. …

Former Obama adviser calls Trump a ‘psychopath’

 A former top adviser to President Barack Obama on Sunday labeled Donald Trump a “psychopath”, saying the Republican presidential nominee met the clinical definition of the personality disorder.

With a little more than two months to go before the Nov. 8 U.S. election, the comments by David Plouffe, a former senior adviser to President Barack Obama and manager of his 2008 presidential campaign, mark another escalation in a series of blows exchanged between Trump’s camp and that of his Democrat rival Hillary Clinton.

“Basically, you have a psychopath running for president. I mean, he meets the clinical definition,” Plouffe said in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

AND HERE IS ANOTHER OPINION

musingsofanoldfart

Let me set aside the reason the man who uttered the phrase “get your money upfront,”was being asked his opinion. He was describing dealing as an independent contractor with the various companies under one owner using a common way of saying don’t trust them, get paid before you start. He prefaced his comments with “the word on the street,” to define it is not just him who is having these issues.

If you heard this about anyone, your first reaction, would be to hit the pause button. It could be due to bullying contractors to pay them less or it could be due to companies having cash flow issues. There are two sure-fire ways to see if a company is in trouble. The first red flag is they extend their Accounts Payables from 30 days payment to 45 days or more, e.g. The second bigger one is when they stop…
