      Not unexpected. This will make direct competition with entrenched players nearly impossible, since they will be able to buy access to customers, and upstarts won’t. The Internet as a place where anybody could start a new business will constrict. Oligopoly and monopoly providers (and many areas effectively have only one ISP) will extract even higher […]

Tuesday: 500 year flood.

Love this song about a place that needs an ark and a rainbow right about now:

******************************************

Speaking of religion, the so-called evangelical “Christians” are threatening to go all jihadi on us if we attempt to dethrone Donald Trump for being incompetent, corrupt and suffering from NPD and dementia.

Yes, if we resist the malignant narcissistic white nationalist sympathizer who just pardoned a guy who cost his county $142 million dollars in legal settlements and over 100 suspicious deaths on his jail, the wrath of god shall smite us, so saith Jim Bakker and Paula White:

After insisting that America is more than 70 percent evangelical (a claim that is wildly false), White launched into a series of mini-sermons that described Trump’s presidency as “anointed” by God—and proclaimed that his opponents, by extension, are an affront to the Almighty.

“We are more impressed with a Saul anointing than a David anointing because we are more impressed with what looks right than what is right,” White, whose ministries were once the subject of a failed Senate probe investigating possible financial improprieties, said. “Therefore, we choose things that we think should sound right, should act right. They say about our president, ‘Well, he is not presidential.’ Thank goodness. Thank goodness. Thank goodness … he is not a polished politician. In other words, he is authentically — whether people like it or not — has been raised up by God. Because God says that He raises up and places all people in places of authority.”

She continued: “It is God who raises up a king. It is God that sets one down. When you fight against the plan of God, you are fighting against the hand of God.”

Well, THERE’S your problem. We don’t have a constitutional monarchy. We have a constitutional republic.

And anyway, the god they’re worshipping needs a rewrite. Yeah, God v1.0 needs an upgrade minus the apocalyptic feature and the horribly vague and repetitive user manual. We’re talking 2000 year old technology.

Strut: Sweet Tooth

Reminds me of a summer sublet with Sig Pi little sisters at The Zoo.

You never know what you’ll find on someone’s iPhone. So there.

Ok, this is a bad plan. Trump is planning to go to Texas today to survey the damage. Yes, the rain is still falling and our Creamsicle in charge is going to commandeer police and other emergency vehicles and other resources to guarantee his security while there are still people who need rescuing.

Must. Hog. Spotlight. As. Benevolent. Dictator.

I can almost hear him now, reminding Houston how he carried Texas, like it’s impossible for a Republican to win there.

This little ditty from Gov. Greg Abbott is so typical of Fox News audience thinking:

Authorities also faced new questions about whether they should have evacuated Houston. Asked Monday about the decision to recommend that people shelter in place rather than leave the city, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said there was no point in thinking about past decisions.

“We are where we are now,” he said.

Riiiiight. Because there was no point in looking back thru history for examples of similar disasters and how they could have been prevented. Like, oh, I don’t know, Katrina, for example?

I swear our collective IQ as a nation is at risk.
