I (Don't) See Dead People (Voting): The Real Fraud Is GOP-Led Voter Suppression

They May Be Popular, But You Know Zombies Aren't Real, Right?

I (Don't) See Dead People (Voting)!

What We Can All See... If We Simply Open Our Eyes To The FACTS:

"The real danger to American Democracy stems from GOP efforts to make it harder to vote. New voting restrictions — like Voter-ID Laws, Cuts To Early Voting and Barriers to Voter Registration — that are in place in 14 states (!) for the first time in 2016 will make it harder for millions of eligible voters to cast a ballot.

And, voters are lacking crucial protections because this is the First Presidential Election in 50 Years (!) without the full provisions of the Voting Rights Act."*

*You  Remember The VOTING RIGHTS ACT, Don't You?!

Voter Suppression Is A Much Bigger Problem Than Voter Fraud: 
Trump’s rigged election lies distract from the Real Threat to American democracy.

"Haters Back Off"... And, Make America SANE, Again!

I wanted to share my review of the new Netflix series "Haters Back Off!"...

If it happens to save you from making the same horrible mistake as I made... Well, then, my job here is done and... "You're Welcome!"
"Oh my Gd... You have got to be joking... 5-Stars... Really?
Those reviews must all be from the ice cream boy's various DBA accounts.  And, they're the only reason I gave this show 19 minutes of my Life.  Nineteen minutes that I cannot get back... Ever! Nineteen minutes that I cannot un-see nor un-hear.  Now, don't get me wrong: I don't hate "Haters" (sigh), I simply want my 19 minutes back.
To achieve success with this type of comedy, the cast members must be able to create a willing suspension of disbelief in the viewers (Think of Tom Hanks' performance in "Big"). And, let's be honest, "Haters..." is no "Big".  It feels like narcissism making an unsuccessful attempt to masquerade as a satire of narcissism.
I thought about it, and there can be only one explanation for all of the 5-star reviews: It's further evidence that the 'dumbing down of America' is enjoying a modicum of success. But, seriously, you shouldn't require any more proof than looking at the two Demo-publican candidates for President of the United States (I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.)
Make America Sane, Again: Vote For All People - Not Just The 1%-ers! Vote For The Entire Planet! Vote For Peace! Vote For The GREATER GOOD! Vote Green! Vote Dr. Jill Stein... Please!
Thank you."

The Case Of The Mysteriously Mutilated Car - Revisited and Still Unexplained

"The Case Of The 'Mutilated' Car - Updated*
*This update may be a few years old, but I just learned about it today.
It's a case of High-Strangeness and an organized (and, so far, successful) Cover-Up that's fascinated me since I first heard about it:
On November 4, 2008, a woman was driving her car on an Illinois highway. It was evening and there were no cars in her immediate vicinity (she was traveling in the middle of three lanes). Suddenly, something shoved her car over into the next lane on her right. She attempted to look around via her left-side mirror - but, the mirror was gone. She had not seen whatever it was that struck her car. When she was able to exit the car to examine it, the image above and those in the article below reveal what she found.
Mr. Peter Davenport - Director of the National UFO Reporting Center - handed the case over to the State Director of MUFON-IL, Sam Maranto. When he'd learned more details of this strange event and seen the photos of the crumpled door panels (still, somehow, sporting an unscratched, rip-free and intact paint job), Davenport had offered to buy the car "as-is" to preserve the evidence. The car's owner wouldn't sell. But, she did agree to let Davenport have the damaged panels after the car was repaired. He'd also brought some of the paint chips from the vehicle to a lab at the University of Chicago for analysis.
Around January of 2009, Mr. Maranto contacted Mr. Davenport with some bad (and truly Strange) news:
The owner of the garage where the car was being repaired had called to, regrettably, inform him that the damaged doors had been stolen.
And, as if that wasn't bad enough: When Mr. Maranto tried to retrieve the paint chips and the lab's analysis results, he'd been told that someone claiming to be an associate of Mr. Maranto's had already retrieved both.
Mr. Maranto hadn't sent any such person.
Someone went to a lot of trouble to prevent the source of the damage to the woman's car from being identified and revealed to the public
If I were to hazard a guess...
I'd say it was either a directed energy weapon or...
focused & directed intention: Perhaps an intentional mental "push", so to speak, or an accident of "letting off steam/venting"?

The War On Terror: Extraordinary Circumstances, Extraordinary Measures and American Values* (*Thanks, Supergirl!)

I was just in the middle of watching an episode of Supergirl on Netflix*:
Season 1 Ep, 14: "Truth, Justice and The American Way".

(*If you haven't seen it, please consider giving it a try.  I'd put off watching it for a long time - Another superhero show?  Are they kidding?.  And, then, I watched the pilot.  After which, I watched the first five episodes back-to-back in a mini-marathon.)

At 17:52, the character, James Olson (played by Mehcad Brooks
), is having a conversation with Supergirl (played by Melissa Benoist).  And, what transpired was a short speech that - when I heard it - I thought, "Eureka! (or, something like that)  That's, (almost) exactly, what I've wished someone/everyone would say to the U.S. military/intelligence community!"

So, taking a cue from the sharp writers of Supergirl - and with some of my own, 
personal editing for proper content and context - here's my version of that speech:

"To Whom It May Concern At The F.B.I., C.I.A., N.S.A., D.I.A., D.O.D., et al.:

When you have more power than any other military/intelligence network on Earth, you must be better than taking a page out of your enemy's handbook.

In every endeavor or conflict - whether it's ground warfare, the (perpetual) war on terror or matters of national security - victory doesn't just come down to a battle of strength or smarts or wills.

Ultimately, it comes down to a battle of values.

Our American Values versus our enemy's values - or lack, thereof.

And, if we're willing to abandon our American Values...

Then what, exactly, is it that makes us any better than our enemy?

If - as claimed - we believe in Truth, Justice and The American Way...

Then, we cannot and must not lower our own standards by taking actions which are in direct opposition to our American Values or by doing whatever it takes.*
i.e torture, enhanced interrogation, extraordinary rendition, suspension of Constitutional/civil/human rights)."
Thank you.

The Next Four Years - Both For America and For The World - Are Much TOO Important For Us To Act Like Sheep On Their Way To Slaughter: Silently and Spinelessly Accepting What We Already Know To Be A Horrifying Fate - One That None Of Us Want Or Deserve - Doing The Thorazine Sheeple Shuffle To The Polls, Obeying The Will Of The Corptocracy/Elites By Voting For One Of Two Sides Of The Same Corporate-Owned, War-Mongering, Environment-and-Natural-Resource-Damning Coin.
