About Me

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland. OUR INSTITUTIONS ARE INFESTED WITH GREEDY AND CORRUPT SOCIOPATHS

first person covid-19 account, from a drag racing news magazine

What the author experienced was horrific. As a life long nitro fan, I thought this was worth sharing.

Bakersfield P.D., first episode

This show was charming and brilliant. Everything, writing, acting, characters.

After the fall of Baghdad, MSNBC's Chris Matthews declared, "We're all neocons now."

From this link: https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2008/03/iraq-follies/

I vividly remember the propaganda being catapulted by GWB and Rummy and all those other PNAC imbeciles. I discovered DU during the Bush v. Gore unconstitutional tragedy and my bristling over republic corruption and lies following 9-11, when Cheney said we have to get those bastards that did this to us. I remember the good reporting links on DU at the time and the great Keith Olbermann's fearless journalism.

I also remember Chris as a cheerleader for the Iraq invasion, swept up in the fervor and deceit of the GWB administration. The first year or two he was enthusiastic about it and supported it. I remember all the false and misleading propaganda and "Americans better watch what they say" and Cheney stove piping bullshit to Judith Miller and then he could speak openly about classified info because it had been published in the NY Times.

It was frightening to watch the break down of journalistic ethics pretty much across the spectrum of MSM. I knew we were sliding into an invasion based on lies and it was unstoppable, so why not get on the bandwagon and worry about consequences later?

The gullibility and lack of integrity and ethics confirmed to me IT CAN HAPPEN HERE. And that is made easier by the likes of Matthews in MSM. Won't get fooled again? Not quite, more like will get fooled again and again and again and again.

And the end result; America is literally a full blown DICTATORSHIP with a moronic psycho bitch from hell having finally wrecked the gift our Founding Fathers gave us.

Good riddance to him and his kind.
