Finished reading _The Greatest Invention _ by Silvia Ferrara.
So, I managed tod to get through 3 Thanksgiving feasts in 4 days without gaining a pound! And, I don’t feel deprived!
True or false? What do you think?
Without novelty, without the hunt for the new, we wouldn’t be human beings.

Frittatas are a great way to use up vegetables. In this case some aging green peppers and cherry tomatoes. Topped with cheddar cheese. Quick and easy to make.
There is one issue on the ballot in 2024, whether the Democratic Republic, imperfect as it may be, survives… it is way better than the alternative…
MIke Davis, one of the men under consideration for attorney general, told a podcast host in September that… “We’re gonna deport a lot of people, 10 million people and growing–anchor babies, their parents, their grandparents,” Davis said. “We’re gonna put kids in cages. It’s gonna be glorious. We’re gonna detain a lot of people in the D.C. gulag and Gitmo.”
That I have to consider this a real possibility brings me to tears…
MIke Davis, one of the men under consideration for attorney general, told a podcast host in September that he would “unleash hell on Washington, D.C.,” getting rid of career politicians, indicting President Joe Biden “and every other scumball, sleazeball Biden,” and helping pardon those found guilty of crimes associated with the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Even the more liberal news outlets are making the mistake of giving oxygen to the fascist fire…
Roberts points out that “both sides” are not extremists, but many Americans have no idea that the Democrats are actually trying to govern, including by reaching across the aisle. Roberts notes that the media focus on the right wing enables the right wing to define our politics. That, in turn, serves the radical right by destroying Americans' faith in our democratic government.

Burchett was talking to NPR reporter Claudia Grisales. Clearly taken aback, Grisales tweeted: “Have NEVER seen this on Capitol Hill: While talking to [Burchett] after the GOP conference meeting, former [Speaker McCarthy] walked by with his detail and McCarthy shoved Burchett. Burchett lunged towards me. I thought it was a joke, it was not. And a chase ensued….” Burchett was one of the eight Republican representatives who voted to oust McCarthy from the speakership.
Our mindset… predetermines what our actions are going to be or what they’re not going to be… Whatever we think and say becomes the reality that we create out there. And how wonderful. How wonderful that we can understand that those two are actually in constant interaction with each other. What we think, what we feel, what we say, is in constant interaction with what we are co-creating out there.
Once we get to the point where we really understand that it’s not like we are extracting from nature, which is what we used to do, or even living with nature, which is what most of us are trying to do now… we get to the point where we are living as nature… which we always were.
Finally, it seems, Trump’s explicit use of Nazi language, especially when coupled with his threats to establish camps, has woken up at least some headline writers. Forbes accurately headlined yesterday’s story: “Trump Compares Political Foes to ‘Vermin’ On Veterans Day–Echoing Nazi Propaganda.”
Today’s HCR is an important read…
When Ellis lamented that their election challenges had lost, Scavino allegedly answered: “‘Well, we don’t care, and we’re not going to leave.” Ellis replied: “‘What do you mean?” Scavino answered: “The boss is not going to leave under any circumstances. We are just going to stay in power.” When Ellis responded “Well, it doesn’t quite work that way, you realize?” he allegedly answered: “We don’t care.”
