Useful Idiot Monday


In recent years, finding themselves increasingly ideologically alienated in the U.S., certain members of the far right have found sympathetic “kindred spirits” among Russia’s well-connected elite.

According to a bombshell report published Sunday night by the Washington Post, some current and former members of the U.S. intelligence community believe that forces within the Russian government are actively cultivating these relationships with disaffected members of the conservative fringe, although it’s unclear why.

The Post report begins with Brian Brown, president of anti-LGBTQ hate group the National Organization for Marriage (NOM). Brown grew up thinking that Russians were the enemy, but now that his own country has largely embraced the sanctity of same-sex marriages, Brown feels more at home among his anti-LGBTQ Russian counterparts.

“What I realized was that there was a great change happening in the former Soviet Union,” Brown said of a 2013 visit to Russia, where gay men and lesbians are routinely attacked in the street, beaten, raped and — in the Republic of Chechnya — rounded up into internment camps, tortured and executed. “There was a real push to re-instill Christian values in the public square.”

    Infiltraitors for certain, prying their way into the US through use of the stupids among us, plain and simple as their self-serving minuscule minds.

    Too bad for the rest of us.

    Rained most of the weekend so no mowing. Pete was over this morning, only left around 4:00. Went out to try to mow, made a couple passes and it started drizzling. Grass looks awful! Hope tomorrow is a sunny day, I’ll do our property and Tom’s next door. It’s not Tom’s anymore but that’s what I still call it.

    Because of rain and Sara is sick again, they didn’t come over this weekend so we didn’t dig up any lilacs or tiger lilies.

    Been having some issues with this computer ever since their last update. Today Pete and I undid the updates, we’ll see how it goes from here. They’ll just put them back when they send another update.

    The one driving me bats is when I shut down my computer at night, after a few seconds it boots back up. It’s like it thinks when I click on SHUT DOWN I’m clicking on RESTART.

    Had Firefox freeze up quite a few times now where CTL/ALT/DEL doesn’t work and I have to hold the power button down and shut down illegally. Grrrr. I told Bob I need a new computer now that this one has decided to start having problems.

      I can tell you how to de-clog, dump – %temp% files, Internet Options files, cache and cookies, then dump recycle bin, check defrag, restart, check msconfig for unknown startups.

      Try Chrome too, might work better. 😉

    Does rain in May bring June flowers?

    Nice and dry here, temps ramping up over 90 in Sac before crashing back to 70’s in time for the weekend.

    I just discovered a sweet food trick for Corn on the cob.

    Store a cob and have it stay fresh for days:

    Using a taller size ceramic coffee cup put 1 inch or so of a 1 to 4 sugar/water mix.
    Then make a 45 degree slice near end of cob stalk, leave husks on and place cob in the sugar water, stem down.

    I have kept a cob fresh and tasty for 6 days from date of purchase.

    By the way, just trim off the tassel and let it go around in the nuker for 5 minutes, husks on, forget boiling water. that’s old school. Delicious!

    Do not cook in a nuker without a turning plate!
