跟墨西哥的墙不修了。
NATO不再过时。
俄国不好。
美国第一,儿童第0.5, 即使是外国穆斯林儿童.
穆斯林禁令。。。。什么穆斯林禁令?

选美上有篇讲川皇星座的文章,好玩极了。我有个懂星盘的小朋友,确实去年六月就看出他帝星莅临,会当王了。据神婆说他的星盘就是顺嘴胡说,说完就忘的个性。投机,讨好,任性,混世魔王型。指望他对谁,对什么看法意见从一而终是不可能的事。这点不可捉摸的魔力,也可以是好事。现在就是一盘乱棋,看他们乱哄哄内耗,最好是大的坏事他们干不了,当然指望他们干出大好事也很渺茫。看小丑们上蹿下跳内斗吧。

It's not that simple. 给钱多的金主里面也有互相矛盾的需求,象川皇这样思路线短的耿直boy今天这样明天那样,没过两天就要把前后左右的金主都得罪光了。普爸爸现在大概气死了。班叔也气死了。这种状况维持不了几天的,还会有大戏出台。

天晓得国会在搞什么,很可怕。

hilarious and terrifying at the same time!
Trump and The Problem of Militant Ignorance
What is key though is to understand that this is not just ignorance. Ignorance is just the first stage of Trump’s fairly advanced problem. He is not only ignorant but clearly unaware of his level of ignorance. This is compounded by a seeming inability to understand that everyone else’s isn’t equally ignorant to him. Those of us who are parents know the wonder of discovery experienced by small children. They find out there were things such as dinosaurs or close primate relatives called lemurs. As loving parents we indulge them, sometimes feigning ignorance of things we actually already knew to support a child’s joy in discovery.

But Donald Trump is a 70 year old man. And not a terribly nice man.

His ignorance is not endearing. We don’t need to lie to him to make him feel good about himself. Still it is good to understand his condition. Ignorance is just lack of information. But there’s something wrong with Trump’s brain – maybe cognitive, perhaps simple entitlement or just broad spectrum derp – which appears to make it genuinely impossible not to project his own ignorance onto everybody else.
He looked like a small panther, and he moved like a patch of night.

然后就是后来发生的那些事情了。

这个应该是正确的。我随手搜了一下英文网站,没看到只能用50刀的说法,倒是看到有些人还很喜欢抢这种优待券的说法,那么应该不是很克扣的。只不过这种愿意被耽误的旅客不是每次都有罢了,例如我,从来不愿意自愿上去,因为很讨厌被打乱行程。

纽约华尔街上雄牛前的小姑娘铜像是否应该被拆除引发激烈讨论。雄牛铜像作者表示铜像原意被新铜像歪曲了,女权主义者中也有不喜欢小姑娘铜像的人。

这篇文章解释了后者的立场:
http://www.salon.com/2017/04/16/fearles ... -feminism/

这也是为什么第一眼看见小姑娘铜像我就产生轻微的厌恶:不敢上成年妇女的雕像,还是小女孩安全是吗?这也是为什么我对于 Hunger Game 以及类似的以女孩子为主角的冒险故事怀有复杂的心情,以及一向反感“迪士尼型的勇敢公主”的直觉。即使是鼓吹女性强大的神话仍含有毒性,而包着糖衣的毒药比赤裸裸的毒药更容易下咽。这不是说 girl power 本身是坏事,而是指出 that's not good enough.

这辈子不停地被人教育:你想太多了。感谢川普的大选胜利,我再也不用疑神疑鬼地反躬自问,是我想多了吗?哈,才不是,是你们想得太少了。

Fearless Girl may look cool, but it's a toothless work that does nothing to confront the realities of sexism
I agree with you girl power is not good enough. Ugly truth is, structural forces of sexism can only be chipped it away slowly, much more slowly than we want. American society has not made enough progress for society to accept anything more than 'Girl Power'. HRC's defeat is evidence of that.

A sculpture of an adult women taming the bull (institutional sexism) -- that is a lie.
A sculpture of an adult woman being attacked by the bull and dying -- True but depressing.
A sculpture of a girl facing a bull -- too young to fight the bull right now, but hopefully will be someday as she is growing up while bull is aging and weakening -- is hopeful message.

Then we can look at this and get some hope and go back to work.

Bill O'Reilly 上星期被“非自愿”地度假去了,刚才看到新闻,据说 Fox News 没让他回来。呵呵。

https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyl ... story.html

Bill O’Reilly is officially out at Fox News

Bill O'Reilly, longtime host of Fox News's top-rated show, “The O'Reilly Factor,” will not return to the network. His departure comes after six women alleged he sexually harassed them.
by Paul Farhi
Fox News ended its association with Bill O’Reilly, the combative TV host and commentator who has ruled cable-news ratings for nearly two decades and who was the signature figure in the network’s rise as a powerful political player.
Fox had re-signed O’Reilly to a multimillion dollar, three-year contract only last month, fully aware of the long history of complaints against him. In less than a month, however, Rupert Murdoch and his sons, James and Lachlan, were forced to decide whether the economic and reputational fallout from the O’Reilly scandal were irreversible.
But the fuse was lit for his career detonation when the New York Times disclosed that O’Reilly and Fox had settled a series of harrassment complaints lodged against him by women he’d worked with at Fox over the years.

The newspaper found that O’Reilly and Fox had settled five such allegations since 2002, paying out some $13 million in exchange for the women’s silence. Two of the settlements, including one for $9 million in 2004, were widely reported. But the others had been kept secret by O’Reilly, Fox and the women involved.
纽约时报最初的报道:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/10/busi ... huddy.html

Liberals 可能对于 Bill O'Reilly 的影响度缺乏认识,他在过去二十年里是cable电视里收视率最高的节目,说他是美国右派群众基础的代言人兼洗脑领袖都不为过。We need more women to come forward and speak up about the real condition of women in society. 这就是为什么 truth,即使是丑陋恶心的 truth,都比遮遮掩掩的粉饰和所谓的“正能量”好多了。

I don't want to stereotype but ... 又肥又丑的老白男们真的有点腻心哦。 :hum:

我一直想说点正面新闻,最近太忙了,结果有些就忘了。美国大城市都都致力于提高新能源的使用率,芝加哥说2025年(我现在记性有些不够可靠,数字可能不准)将实现高层建筑全面实用可再生新能源。德州是美国最大的风能发电的州,并且增长极快,8年之内翻了一倍,风能发电占全州发电量的12%,比其他州多很多很多。一部分原因是小农场主靠出租地建风车可以增加收入,保住农场。不能跟他们提“绿色能源”这个词,他们讨厌这些左派的词汇,就直接说这能挣钱。一个新兴的行业是爬到顶上修理风车,又是个男性主导的行业,但是也有个别女性参加。
貌似经济发展的方向可以被拖后腿,但是并不会被转向。finger crossed.

我也讲点积极的。纽约时报说Rex Tillerson (前美孚石油总裁,现川普政府国务卿)相信全球变暖,并且在悄悄影响川普不要退出巴黎协议。
更重要的是几个大石油公司都不希望美国悍然退出巴黎协议。因为它们都是全球运营,美国退出,在其他市场它们仍要受协议束缚,又失去了通过美国政府参与影响制定规则的权力。所以在偷偷游说川普。

The Surgeon General Vivek Murthy has been abruptly fired by the Trump Administration.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to- ... ty-for-now

I am so pissed at this. :mad2:

Murthy 是第一个印度裔 Surgeon General,非常年轻有为。去年他特地发了一篇关于 addiction 报告,称之为神经系统疾病以及公共卫生课题,需要医学界直接参与(而不是依赖公检法和监狱)解决问题。
A physician, Murthy, 39, is a longtime believer that gun violence is a public-health issue, a view that stalled his nomination in the Senate for more than a year and probably did not align him well with the current administration. He took office in December 2014, and in an interview with The Washington Post four months later, he did not back off those views.

“The statements I've made in the past about gun violence being a public health issue, I stand by those comments because they're a fact,” he said then. “They're a fact that nearly every medical professional who's ever cared for a patient can attest to.”

His biggest accomplishment may have been the publication in November of a landmark report on drug and alcohol addiction, which placed that condition alongside smoking, AIDS and other public health crises of the past 50 years that previous surgeons general have tried to address. The report called the addiction epidemic “a moral test for America.” Murthy's office sent millions of letters to doctors asking for their help to combat the opioid crisis.
当然啦,反科学反医学反公共卫生的政治体系下,受害最大的是川粉,以及未成年的青少年。

今天下午去城里看莎剧,回来坐地铁超拥挤,天气又热,哇真是被挤扁了。细看好多人都穿着 People's Climate March 的汗衫或拿着纸板标语,原来是来首都参加游行的。

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national ... story.html

在车厢里听见一个本地大妈跟一个外地大妈聊天,问:你们是纽约来的吗?答:不,我们是 Oklahoma 的。本地大妈惊叹了一番。我回头看看 OK 大妈,夫妻俩都很有肉,穿着汗衫上写了 "Resist"。

另一对坐着的中年夫妻,丈夫拿着一张纸牌,一面画着蓝色海浪,写“Higher and Higher and Higher”,另一面写 "Is it hot enough for you?"

气候变化这个是我特别恼火的一点,得多瞎才能看不出来?还是看得出来做睁眼瞎啊?

开头是有人在推上贴了这段采访对话:

Peter Sagal 引用出来,发推开玩笑:
In a cubicle at @NPR, @NPRinskeep, for the first time in his life, feels the overwhelming urge to use profanity.
原因是, Steve Inskeep (Morning Edition) 以前好好研究过 Andrew Jackson 生平并且写过一本书。

然后 Inskeep 就回击( :lol: )了 Peter Sagal:
Many people who have worked with me know how factually wrong every part of this joke is.
然后 NPR 真的找 Inskeep 来详细解释了一下这段历史。

http://www.npr.org/2017/05/01/526388034 ... trump-said

这篇简述特别通俗易懂,很值得看看。
[Jackson] bought his first slave, a young woman, when he was barely an adult. He also traded in slaves. From his late forties onward, he actually owned slaves who worked multiple plantations as he built a little empire of cotton land in Tennessee and Alabama.

Sometimes slaves escaped, and he advertised for their return. At least once he went hunting for escaped slaves himself. It is said, correctly I think, that he was not a pro-slavery ideologue; he just accepted slavery as the custom of his time.

But as president, his governing coalition, which became the Democratic Party, included Southern slave interests, and Jackson never messed with them. He even allowed Southerners to censor the U.S. mail to keep "dangerous" antislavery publications from reaching slave states.

So did he have a "big heart"? Some of his biographers think so. He was said to be a gentle master; there were scenes of slaves crying when he died; and one writer even called him "an ideal slave owner." However, he was never so kind to his slaves as to free them.

Jackson behaved similarly toward Indians: making friends with them, but never stopping his efforts to obtain their land for the United States. Maybe it's best to say that Jackson had a "big heart," except where his economic or political interests were at stake.
美国政治根深蒂固的自我冲突,在这里可以看见一斑。慈善友好的白人主子跟驯服感恩的黑人奴隶幸福地生活在一起,这才是真正的美国梦呢。
Wonderful things can happen when you sew the seeds of distrust in a garden of assholes.

连我这么心理阴暗的都能感到一点点阳光了☀️

NIH: $2 billion increase
EPA: 99% of current levels
National Park Service: fully funded
NASA: 1.9% increase
Standing up for science works. But these budgets are only for the 2017 fiscal year. We still have to fight the cuts for 2018, and the many other attacks on science. Onward!

There is no such thing as ideal owner for slaves. As they are not allowed to choose owner.

说到预算,为民主党两院少数派点个赞。伊丽莎白沃伦周末宣传新书上了一圈电视,(我觉得她这是要竞选总统的节奏),她很鼓舞的说,没票也能斗争。比如奥巴马医疗,共和党一直的口号是repeal, 民主党狂讲有多少人会失去健保,发动大家打电话去townhall, 把replace 的概念推啊推的推到前台,共和党逐渐的被迫把repeal and replace 一起讲,然后。。。这个斗争看上去是共和党内部分化就打不成协议,其实民主党发动的草根斗争是很有用的。
所以March for science 什么的也是有用的,共和党不是铁板一块,只要能把其中一部分拉住就能阻止很多毁灭性措施的发生。

一百天下来川皇没搞成啥,我很受鼓舞。川皇几次三番雷声大雨点小,共和党建制派已经不太怕他了。这次预算案就明显是共和党建制派甩开茶党跟民主党建制派合作的结果。
Nevertheless, she persisted.
