    Someone shared this with me on FB last night. Do these idiots just sit around dreaming up ways to waste our money? Of course they teach them how to get subsidies, we always need more farmers getting something for nothing. I’m sure they also told them how to get subsidies for not farming as well.
    I guess the USDA doesn’t know most of those men have wives who are farmers? I’d like to know where those rich farmers are at as well. Maybe those getting subsidies?
    Money wasted for how many people? According to government data, farmers now make up less than 1% of the population, 14% of that 1% are women and gays and lesbians make up 3% of the overall population. Their own numbers show there can’t be very many lesbian farmers.

    “Among the same Democrat-heavy sample: 26% say they voted for Romney in 2012, 42% say they are leaning toward Trump in 2016.”
    “Another poll; another way to spin.”
    “Earlier this week, I showed how the reporting on a Bloomberg poll could be skewed to make results look more or less positive for a given candidate.”
    “Today, we look at a Washington Post/ABC News poll that also purports to show a widening Clinton lead over Trump – by 8 points: 50% to 42%. This may well be the case. However, looking at the poll sample numbers, there’s some relevant context not reported in news stories.”
    “Read the Washington Post/ABC News poll”
    “The poll interviewed 10% more people who identify as Democrats (33%) than Republicans (23%), with the largest group (36%) calling themselves independent. So with 10% more Democrats than Republicans questioned, Clinton leads Trump by 8-points.” More at:

    Tool or weapon?

    It looks like some rocket scientists figured out that when applied to the skull, “stones” from the ground might be used as an organic cure for insomnia.

      “Our study suggests that the throwing of stones played a key role in the evolution of hunting housewives,” said Bingham, a professor in the IU Bloomington College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and an author on the study.

      I’m sorry, but how much money did this guy make in one drunken weekend of writing?

      Amazing! These rocket scientists haven’t figure out that an item can be both a weapon and a tool, you know, like a chainsaw. (Warning – Don’t click on this link 😯 )

      This &&&& never ends, we had the exact same arguements over rocks/stones found in proximity of sites we were digging. Were they weapons? Were they pounding tools? Were they stones thstvwere heated and dropped into pots to heat food? Or were they plain old round river rocks? The Popeil Stone-o-Matic: it chops, it dices, it squashes and in a pinch you can use it to smack the holy **** out of an unruly Australopithecus!
      When you look at the battaliobs of archeologists and anthropologists graduated each year you get an idea of why these arguements happen – everyone of them’s fighting for recognition.

    I’m sorry, but I’m venting. I would bash my head into the desk, but I have other things to do.

    Seattle, WA
    Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect until 9 PM PDT Saturday.
    β€’Temperature: climbing into the 90s this afternoon and Saturday afternoon. Temperatures will lower into mainly the 60s overnight.
    β€’Timing: temperatures will peak today and then level off or lower slightly on Saturday. Expect significant cooling on Sunday. With temperatures returning to near normal.
    β€’Impacts: hot weather increases the potential for dehydration and heat related illnesses. The elderly, the young, and those who work or exercise outdoors will be the most vulnerable to heat related illnesses if extra precautions are not taken.

    Fine print:
    What is an Excessive Heat Warning?
    Heat Index (HI) values forecast to meet or exceed locally defined warning criteria for at least two days (Typical values: 1) Maximum daytime HI>=105Β°F north to110Β°F south and 2) Minimum nighttime lows >=75Β°F).

    Note: The Excessive Heat Warning/Heat Advisory criteria is highly variable in different parts of the country due to climate variability and the effect of excessive heat on the local population.

    Seen on Facebook:

    Please note that Trump has visited Louisiana looking presidential, forced Obama to go there on Tuesday, left Hillary looking weak by NOT going, gotten Mary Landreau to thank him, talked to Franklin Graham and Tony Perkins about church efforts, gone to Michigan and given a dynamite speech, all in ONE DAY!

    Plus, got Manafort off the team due to crap stuff about Ukraine, new team on board, mastered teleprompter, and still home tonight to Manhattan. Plus new TV ads!

    On time and under budget!

    Learned an interesting factoid tonight (background – neighbor behind me is an aging hippie, also – but his tastes are a tad different. Plus, he lives on his back porch so if I go out to smoke he exposes moi to his musical choices at any hour of the night. Which doesn’t bother me.) Anyhow, since I’ve already osmosissed the entire wording of “Stairway To Heaven,” I just assumed “Dream On” was Led Zep, too.
