Fraud!

Dear Friends: Your faithful reporter was going to write about Malaria Trump taking over the reigns from Donald and firing one of the West Wing staffers today...... or that the Republicans blocked a bill to protect Robert Mueller from the right wing hoards...........but Donald beat me to the punch by tweeting that he now had proof of fraud in the mid-term elections last week!

Are Ya Ready?

According to Donald there were literally thousands of Democrats who went in to vote last week and then ran out to their car................ put on a disguise............ and went back in to vote again!
President Trump is once again making baseless allegations about voter fraud, this time saying people are casting additional ballots by changing their clothes and returning to polling places.
Trump made the claims in an interview with Daily Caller on Wednesday, where he also called for Florida’s Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes to be fired. Counties in the state, including Broward County, are currently performing a recount in Florida’s gubernatorial and senate races.
“The Republicans don’t win and that’s because of potentially illegal votes,” he said to the Daily Caller. “When people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote and they go around in circles. Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again. Nobody takes anything. It’s really a disgrace what’s going on.”
He offered no evidence for his claim.

I swear to God I'm not making this shit up folks!

What, me worry?

Dear Friends: According to reports we have received from the Perspective Naked News Department Donald Drumpf did not attend any of the Veterans/Armistice/Remembrance day activities at Arlington National Cemetery yesterday because he:

a. Had a bad hair day!

b. Just didn't feel like going!

c. Slept in!

Combine that with his disgraceful performance at the veterans memorial services in France on the weekend for the 100th anniversary of the end of the first world war and you have a President whose reputation keeps sinking deeper and deeper into disdain and disgust!

Amid sharp criticism from nearly all sides 'The Donald' was heard to say:

"What, me worry?"

CHEERS!

Dear Friends: Procter & Gamble, the parent company to Tide, announced on Friday that it plans to package and ship Tide laundry detergent products in a cardboard box that includes a twist-to-open spout.

It's called the Tide Eco-Box and it's been designed "to reduce the environmental impact of shipping laundry detergent in eCommerce," a spokesperson for P&G North America Fabric Care told BuzzFeed News.

According to CNN, the new box uses 60% less plastic than shipping a bottle of detergent and will cost the company less overall to ship because it weighs less and takes up less space in a delivery truck.

The boxed tide detergent will be made available for giant online retail channels like Amazon and Wal-Mart starting in January.

CNN said the fear is that high school students would drink this detergent because it looks vaguely the same as a popular drink currently on the market. 

Let's put it this way folks, if they're that stupid they deserve to have their guts rinsed out! (Beside that, it's about time we thinned the herd a bit!)

The way I see it anyway! 
Tide Cheer!

The beat goes on!

Dear Friends: The heart can continue to beat for days, even weeks or more, after an animal has died.

The French Nobel laureate Alexis Carrel showed that a chick’s heart tissue, cultured on a medium of blood plasma and water, will pulsate for months and can remain alive for more than 20 years, much longer than the normal life span of its host. If the heart is the last major organ to stop working, it is also the first to develop—starting to beat, in humans, approximately three weeks into fetal life, even before there is blood to pump.

From birth until death, it beats nearly 3 billion times.

The amount of work it performs is mind-boggling. Each heartbeat generates enough force to circulate blood through approximately 100,000 miles of vessels. The amount of blood that passes through an average adult heart in a week could fill a backyard swimming pool.

Beware a woman scorned!

Dear Friends: The #metoo movement is doing a good thing to raise awareness about spousal abuse, but there is another side to the coin that makes me very uneasy.

Fortunately I have the sort of wife who would never, ever do this sort of thing because she is a moral  woman who leads an exemplary life according to a strict set of principals!

But that's no the case for everyone:

 By Christopher Carlin
In 2017, my wife had me falsely arrested for domestic abuse.
She had actually threatened to do so a month previously; and it put the fear of God into me. So I took the next day off from work, went to court and tried to get a restraining order against her and possibly have her removed from our home.
The judge refused to give me one. He told me that because my wife hadn't PHYSICALLY threatened me, he had no grounds to grant me a restraining order. He did, however, say he would give me a “No Abuse” order, which meant that my wife couldn't threaten me like that again. I told His Honor that if that was all the court was willing to do that day, I'd much prefer to just drop the whole matter, as having my wife served with a ‘no abuse’ order would just make the situation worse. But he said he'd already begun writing out the order, and was going to give it to me anyway. He then wished me good luck and good day.
There was a court advocate who had assisted me with the restraining order paperwork, and gone with me before the judge. She was a very sweet girl, and when we got outside the courtroom, she said to me, “Christopher…I think the court really let you down today. And I'm sorry it worked out that way.” 
I said, “Yes, the court has really let me down today. And I GUARANTEE YOU that sometime within the next few months, my wife is going to have me THROWN IN JAIL.” And she said, “Well…I sure hope that doesn't happen. Good luck, Christopher, and I hope everything works out for you.”
And indeed, the ‘No Abuse’ order did in fact make things worse…MUCH worse. The whole situation became incredibly uncomfortable and hostile, and my wife and I got to the point where we really hated each other. But I refused to flee my own home. (Although in looking back on it, that probably would have been the wisest course of action. But hindsight’s always 20/20).
And just as I had predicted, about a month after I tried to get the restraining order… she had me arrested.
We had been arguing that evening and said some really nasty things to each other, and then she left our apartment and went across the hall to a girlfriend's. I thought it was all over.
Ten minutes later a police car pulled up in front of our building, lights flashing.
I knew immediately my wife must have called them, but deep down I guess I really didn't believe my wife would be sadistic enough to have me arrested, inasmuch as I had never been anything but good to her.
I was wrong.
Two officers came in, asked me what was going on. I said, “Nothing’s going on, and I have no idea why you guys are here.” They asked, “Has there been an altercation between you and your wife?” I said, “No. Just an argument. Just words. Is this a noise complaint?” They ignored that query and asked, “Where's your wife?” I told them, “I believe she's right across the hall at a friend's.” “Okay”, they told me, “stay here while we go speak to her.” “No problem”, I replied.
They went across the hall and were there for TWENTY MINUTES.
And I knew something must be going on; because it doesn't take twenty minutes to tell two cops that we'd just had an argument and that everything was fine.
I knew she must be inventing some kind of major bullshit story for them.
And sure enough, when the officers returned twenty minutes later, they told me to stand up and put my hands behind my back, as they were placing me under arrest for domestic violence.
“Domestic VIOLENCE??”, I said. “WHAT ‘violence’?? I NEVER LAID A FINGER ON MY WIFE. It was a simple verbal argument!”
They said, “Well…she's saying differently. And we're placing you under arrest.” “What did she say?”, I asked. “She claimed I put my hands on her?”
They ignored those questions (and pretty much anything else I asked or said) and proceeded to handcuff me and bring me to the police station. I found out the next day that she'd told them I had ‘grabbed her by the hair and thrown her to the floor.’ Which, please believe me, was a complete and total fabrication. An utter invention on her part. I've never hit a woman in my life or treated a woman in any such fashion. NEVER.
I spent 18 days in jail (which was really awful). I'd just gotten paid the night my wife had me arrested, and had $800 cash on me, but the bailbondsman set my bail at $1500, because I had a DUI from 16 years ago and one other minor charge on my record, and because domestic violence is taken so seriously here in the Bay State (which it should be, of course…unless you happen to be innocent).
I knew I could get the bail reduced, which I did, but I had to sit in jail for 18 days before I could get in front of a judge again and get my bail lowered to $500, and spring myself, which I did.
Of course, my wife had immediately requested a restraining order against me, which was granted (for ONE YEAR), so when I walked out of the jail I was essentially homeless.
She'd also done such an excellent job of portraying me as an evil monster and claiming she was in such fear of her life from me that the court only granted my release on condition that I be fitted with an ELECTRONIC ANKLE BRACELET that would monitor my movement and make sure I stayed away from my own home, and my wife.
My friends did all they could to help me, but the winter of 2017-18 was the worst time of my life. I had to plug the fucking ankle bracelet in every night for 2 hours to charge it. Half the time I never knew where I'd be staying that night, and because my two best friends lived very close to where my wife and I had lived, I was unable to stay with them for fear of setting the ankle bracelet off, although I would have been more than welcome at either of their homes. I wound up spending more than a few nights at the local homeless shelter, which was only a slight improvement over prison.
I was forced to shell out a ton of dough for an attorney, court costs, bail, etc.
And eventually, I had to plead out, because, although there was absolutely NO physical evidence that I had assaulted my wife, no photos of bruises, black eyes, or anything even remotely like that, my lawyer told me; “Christopher, you have a good case and I'm ready to go to trial with you on this. But, as you're paying me to protect your best interests, I must tell you that, if your wife is willing to get up on the witness stand and lie like a trooper and cry and pull all the stops out…this whole thing could go south on you.
If the jury believes her story, of course they'll bring in a guilty verdict. And if that happens, I MAY be able to avoid jail time for you…but maybe not. Domestic violence is taken very seriously here in Massachusetts, and you could well up wind up doing 6 months or more if found guilty. I'm willing to do whatever you want, but it might be in your best interests to just plead out, avoid jail time and walk away from this whole miserable mess. I know you're innocent…but it might be the best course of action for you.”
What would you have done?
So as I said, I did indeed end up pleading out (jail was so hideous I wasn't even willing to RISK a possible return to it, even if the chance of that happening was 50/50 or less; who knows what a jury may do or believe?), and am now a convicted felon.
Aside from the $5,000 I paid for my lawyer, I must shell out another $2,000 for “Anti-domestic violence classes”, which nonsense I must sit through every Tuesday night for 2 hours for the next THIRTY EIGHT WEEKS, and I'm also doing Community Service at a local food bank to pay for some of my court costs and probation fees. But there are other court costs that cannot be worked off by Community Service and must be paid out of pocket; these will come to about another $350.
So essentially, my wife has made me homeless, nearly ruined me financially, and has tarnished my legal reputation permanently. Even as I write this, she sits in the apartment we lived in, watching MY flat-screen tv, sleeping in MY king-sized bed, and relaxing on all MY furniture. And for 4 or 5 months, the court forced me to pay the utilities there and also her cell phone bill.
I'm 57 years old and have been through some shit, but this past year has truly been a living hell; and I don't exaggerate when saying that. I came VERY close to just giving up and hanging myself. I never would have survived without the help of my friends, and will always be grateful to them; many times they really went above and beyond for me.
I'm in a new apartment, and it's a dump, but I'm grateful to have it. And my landlord has promised to move me to better accommodations in a nicer building across the street sometime soon.
My wife tried to destroy me…but she failed. Because I'm still here and still alive, and have managed to pick up the pieces.
But at great cost. Physically, mentally, emotionally and financially. My credit's been destroyed. My hair has gone gray. I lost 35 pounds over the course of this year, and nearly developed an ulcer. I felt miserably ill for months. My car was repossessed, and I now take public transportation everywhere.
I won't go into what an evil harpy my wife is, a piece of human trash, etc., etc., etc.
But I've often asked myself; HOW does my wife SLEEP at night?
How does she live with what she's done to me? Knowing she had me imprisoned on a false charge? Having full knowledge of what she did to my life?
I can honestly say that I could NEVER, EVER do to someone what my wife's done to me, not in a million years; no matter HOW angry or upset I was. I simply don't have that kind of vindictiveness in me.
She goes to this kooky spiritualist church twice a week, and I guess she thinks that makes her a good person, and okay with God.
Unfortunately, my story is a sadly common one here in Massachusetts (or “Missachusetts”, as men here often call it, with good reason).
And unfortunately, women here seem to do what my wife did to me alot. They know how the law works, and they know they can have a man arrested at the twitch of their little finger, and solely upon their WORD.
I've learned something about women. And what I've learned is; if a woman feels you've done her wrong or disrespected her or made her unhappy in some way, she will go over the top in ways most men NEVER would. Because I think most men…most PEOPLE, in fact, …understand that there are certain things you're not entitled to do to other people and in fact shouldn't do, because it's morally wrong and reprehensible; screw with their livelihood, bear false witness against them, throw them in jail, destroy their lives or reputations. But ‘Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.’
And when the fairer sex feel they've been wronged, it seems to me that all bets are off the table, and they're willing to do ANYTHING to get what they perceive to be even, and as far as they're concerned it's totally justified and you're just getting what's coming to you.
Women can be dangerous and unstable…and incredibly vindictive, is what I've learned.
And that's the worst thing a woman can do to a man; and certainly the worst thing that a woman's ever done to me.
But I’ve survived, you hateful bitch.
And I'm still fucking here.
Like I said folks, this is the other side of the coin and frankly, it scares the shit out of me!

The way I see it anyway! 


Shades of 2000 Election!

Dear Friends: The Republicans didn't deserve to win the United States 2000 election but they did by stopping the count before all the ballots were processed........ and they are trying to do the same thing today.

This week GOP lawyers tried to get the courts to stop vote tallying in a number of States where the results for Senators and Governors and House Representatives were taking place and it remains to be seen if they succeed!

Why more people don't scream bloody murder at these blatantly corrupt practises is beyond me folks, the Republicans don't need to be reigned in, they need to be outlawed!

It's either that or make the Libertarians a viable third party in every National, State and Municipal election starting in 2020.

If some rich Democrat wanted to put 100 million bucks toward this that would be a good start and do a lot more good than just dissing the Alt-Right.

The way I see it anyway!

When everybody hates you!

Dear Friends: Poor Donald Drumpf, the guy just can't get along with anybody anymore! (If he ever could.)

It's getting pretty bad when even Michelle Obama, who is a very kind and forgiving person....... hates your guts!
The Washington Post reports that in her new book, former first lady Michelle Obama says President Trump jeopardized her family's safety by propagating the false 'birther' conspiracy theory. The excerpt was confirmed by CNN presidential historian David Brinkley, who has read the book.

Donald has his priorities all wrong!

Dear Friends: Don the Con Trumplethinskin has his priorities all wrong folks!

Now that the elections are over we don't hear a peep about the "Caravan" of illegal aliens, murderers, drug dealers, MS-13 gangsters and the occasional woman refugee with her kids that were all set to invade the United States in the next few months...... but we all know that this was pure bullshit to begin with because outside terrorists are not the threat American's have to watch out for kids!

NO!

Neither ISIS, Al Qaeda, MS-13 or murderous Mexicans and Arabs need come to the States folks, because the country is producing all the mayhem it can stand from home grown mass shootings!

YUP!

The Donald missed the boat when he tried to demonize violence in the United States of America by outsiders because it's right under their noses! The terrorists aren't in Mexico boys and girls, they're in your back yard! (We have seen the enemy, and the enemy is us!)

The way I see it anyway!

“The Alien Octopus Hypothesis”

Dear Friends: Your inquisitive reporter has hypothesized several times that octopuses (octopi?) are actually ALIEN CREATURES that were brought here millions of years ago by someone or something in a spaceship. (They could even have been the crew of that ship!)

This article in the "Daily Galaxy" provides some interesting insight into this idea! (Even if Donald Drumpf does get upset at the thought of "aliens!")
Could one of Earth’s most intelligent species be an alien, ‘seeded’ on the planet by an interstellar genetic code? Scientists think the clue might be found in the ancient precursor to life, RNA.

This past April, 2018, the peer-reviewed journal Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology published a remarkable scientific paper, Cause of the Cambrian Explosion – Terrestrial or Cosmic? With 33 authors from a wide range of reputable universities and research institutes, the paper makes a seemingly incredible that if true, would have the most profound consequences for our understanding of the universe, namely that life, the paper argues, did not originate on the planet Earth.

Like the basics of the human brain that first evolved in the sea, cephalopods – octopuses, squids and nautiluses – “are an island of mental complexity in the sea of invertebrate animals” having developed on a different path from us, “an independent experiment in the evolution of large brains and complex behavior,” says Peter Godfrey-Smith, philosopher of science at the University of Syndey. “If we can make contact with cephalopods as sentient beings, it is not because of a shared history, not because of kinship, but because evolution built minds twice over,” adds Godfrey-Smith. “This is probably the closest we will come to meeting an intelligent alien.”

Shapeshifting octopuses are scary smart with the amazing power to edit their own bodies. In April last year, researchers found octopuses — and some of their cuttlefish and squid cousins — regularly edit their RNA, an advanced biological ability, they claim, that came from outer space.
Perhaps the most controversial aspect of the new paper concerns the origins of the octopus. The discussion begins, as it so often does in the paper, with some plausible evidence. Cephalopods (the group comprising squid, cuttlefish, nautilus and octopus) have a somewhat confusing evolutionary tree, first appearing in the late Cambrian period and seemingly descending from an ancestral primitive nautiloid.
Of these, the octopus is the most striking, with features, such as a complex nervous system, sophisticated eyes and a capacity for camouflage, that appear quite suddenly in its evolution. The genes necessary for this transformation, the authors suggest, are not present in its ancestry. Thus, they hold that “it is plausible then to suggest they seem to be borrowed from a far distant ‘future’ in terms of terrestrial evolution, or more realistically from the cosmos at large.”

Interestingly, the octopus has some real and pervasive biochemical differences from the nautilus, presumably the closest living relative of the former’s ancestor. In particular, there is evidence of extensive changes in the RNA, and thus proteins, found in the neural structures of cephalopods.

These changes have been preserved and are not found to this extent elsewhere in nature, not even in the nautilus. This indicates that a qualitative evolutionary transformation occurred relatively recently and abruptly in behaviorally complex cephalopods. The sheer scale of these changes leads the authors to conclude that it cannot be explained by normal Darwinian evolution.

“One plausible explanation,’ the researchers argue, “in our view, is that the new genes are likely new extraterrestrial imports to Earth – most plausibly as an already coherent group of functioning genes within (say) cryopreserved and matrix protected fertilized octopus eggs,” write the authors. This would “be a parsimonious cosmic explanation for the octopus’ sudden emergence on Earth [about] 270 million years ago.”

The Cambrian Explosion was a period of time where life on Earth diversified dramatically, and rapidly, which took place shortly after the emergence of retroviruses in our environment. It was especially dramatic for a type of mollusc called a cephalopod. Tentacles reached out from their shells and wove their way into enormous variety of creatures which eventually became the octopus, cuttlefish and squid.

“We believe this coincidence is not fortuitous but is consistent with a key prediction … whereby major extinction-diversification evolutionary boundaries coincide with virus-bearing cometary-bolide bombardment events,” the study’s abstract reads.

This idea is that space-borne retroviruses eventually found their way to the Earth’s surface before attaching themselves to living organisms. Once there, they reprogrammed the creatures’ evolution.

“A second focus is the remarkable evolution of intelligent complexity (Cephalopods) culminating in the emergence of the Octopus,” the study reads.

“A third focus concerns the microorganism fossil evidence contained within meteorites as well as the detection in the upper atmosphere of apparent incoming life-bearing particles from space.”

The paper argues the space-based transfer of life was likely on a larger scale than just retroviruses. Whole sets of frozen genetic material were cast about on the stellar winds before reaching our tiny blue dot. “Thus the possibility that cryopreserved squid and/or octopus eggs, arrived in icy bolides several hundred million years ago should not be discounted,” the study reads.

RNA, like DNA, records genetic code. But where DNA is a double-stranded molecule, RNA consists of just one strand. Its role within our body is to transmit genetic information to trigger the production of proteins. But some scientists feel RNA may have been the original DNA, acting as the permanent storehouse of genetic code among Earth’s earliest organisms.

Researchers have found that when it comes to cephalopods like the common squid,up to 60 per cent of the RNA in its nervous system had been edited after it was programmed by DNA. These changes adapted its brain to shifting temperatures in it ocean habitat.

“This shows that high levels of RNA editing … (is) an invention of the coleoid cephalopods,” US Marine Biological Laboratory researcher Joshua Rosenthal said. The central dogma of biology, says Rosenthal, is that genetic information passes faithfully from DNA to RNA before being decoded into proteins. This information can be manipulated at any stage. When done in DNA, the changes are irreversible. Organisms often alter information in RNA because it provides a flexible platform.

Octopus, squid, and cuttlefish are famous for engaging in complex behavior, from unlocking an aquarium tank and escaping to instantaneous skin camouflage to hide from predators. A new study suggests their evolutionary path to neural sophistication includes a novel mechanism: Prolific RNA editing at the expense of evolution in their genomic DNA.

Acknowledged experts are unconvinced by the findings. Avi Loeb, the Frank B. Baird Jr. Professor of Science at Harvard University, told Newsweek the study raised “an interesting but controversial possibility, offering no “indisputable proof” that the Cambrian explosion is the result of panspermia.

Astrobiologist Frances Westall, who is involved in the European Space Agency’s Mars Express mission, is skeptical of the paper. For instance, some microbial cells and seeds, she told Newsweek, have been shown to survive in space for certain periods of time. But in the scenario offered in this paper, they would need to have survived in interstellar space for thousands of years.

Although the chemical building blocks for life may be cosmic, more experimental work needs to be done to probe the origins of life on Earth, Westall said. “Unfortunately it is all too easy to pull information out of the literature to support one’s hypothesis,” she added. “Nature is incredible, and I do not think it is necessary to call on extraterrestrials to explain.
