    • The Fall of the USSR
      The best book on both successes and failures of the Soviet Union is Mancur Olson’s “Power and Prosperity.”  If you haven’t read it, you should.  The second best is Randall Collins essay in Macrosociology. The great problem with most critiques of the  USSR is that they do not explain its successes.  In the 20s and […]

Morning Morning

Today is the start of Carnival in Venice. I’ve been to Italy twice but never to Venice. As we head into Mardi Gras and Valentine’s Day, here’s bit of morning harmony to transport us. This is Anna Netrebko and Elina Garanca with the Prague Philharmonic singing Barcarolle from Tales of Hoffman by Offenbach. The title is Belle nuit, o nuit d’amour or Beautiful night, oh night of love. Lovely no matter when you hear it. 

Rise and shine.

  1. Thank you! That was lovely!

  2. A Mezzo Soprano and a Lyric Soprano.
    How lovely.

  3. Happy thought for the day: how much is Trump going to hate being photographed next to Justin Trudeau?
    Beauty and the Beast.

  4. sort of off-topic, but I think fairly important.
    Right now, CNN is discussing Trump’s claim of fraud in NH and discounting it.

    Now, I sense a rat here. I think there may have been actual fraud in the states that Trump won. This is preempting the argument, and so as when the claims of fraud happens, they can say, “ha ha, you kept telling us it didn’t exist. ha ha”. Then everyone is tired and the issue goes away. Beware!

    I really sense this could be indication that actual fraud from Trump’s side (or his helpers) happened.

    • We’ve suspected this all along. Every time he accuses someone else of something, he’s doing or has done it. He’s psychologically incapable of modeling an “other”‘s behavior, because, to him, there is genuinely only him. He has no curiosity about others, because there is only his perspective, decisions, beliefs, attitudes, values. Makes it easy to see what he’s doing or has done.

      • Remember, during the campaign rump kept saying that the election (and polls) was rigged. It sure was rigged, on his favor.

        These are old news, he is a fraud elected president and has bullied the system through and through.

        Don’t forget that the three states that supposedly gave him the electoral win by less the 70,000 votes, were not allowed a recount regardless the 1% rule that triggers an automatic recount.

        Rump should be charged for treason.

        • It’s coming… I think it’s coming very soon. The Justice Dept. appears to be doing its job, despite the corruption. Bye Bye Flynn… Now we have Gen. Kellogg, who was a strong Trump supporter and called him “the black swan candidate” (he must’ve meant the movie…), and the media saying “what did he know and when did he know it?” Watergate throwback. Big deal. Not over.
