Anti-war Movement Needed NOW!

If there's a peace movement out there, it's time to get up and howl. If there is not, it's time to get working on one. There isn't much time.

Absolutely the worst thing, in my opinion, that can happen in the POTUS election currently taking up way too much space, volume, and megabytes, is if Shillary were to win in a landslide.

Trump vs Clinton: What's important? (Besides everything)

Here's a moral compass-testing exercise.

Here are some questions abouth the Clinton vs Trump election. Please rank the following in terms of their importance (nb. Almost all of them are really, really important):

Computing: Wish I could get some work done

Sometimes it seems like the majority of my life is spent resolving problems with computers (and phones), problems that seem to crop up for no reason just when I'm about to try to accomplish something.

A few days ago I returned from a sojourn to rural Cambodia, where the wifi was non-existent and the data-mobility was iffy, and I'd forgot to take the power cord for my laptop.

WaPo from The Intercept. Say it ain't so!

One of the more annoying talking points stinking up the debates around the US presidential election is this: Drumpf's son's "skittles" tweet was based on an analogy that "originated" in Nazi Germany.

It's WaPo!

Some child victims we care about, some we don't

Some child victims we care about, some we don't. An injury to a child caused by someone we don't like, we beat our breasts and tear our hair out. An injury to a child caused by someone we do like, well, shit happens.

Top left, you'll undoubtedly recognize little Omran Daqneesh, injured in a "Russian or Syrian" airstrike, and nobody ever figured out, or cared, what party dropped the bomb. Little Omran was photographed by the "White Helmets," a group of PR campaigners embedded in Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian al-Qaeda affiliate. The "White Helmets" are dearly loved in the "West," are seriously funded by the "West," and have amazing contacts in the Western LameStream media. If you've managed NOT to see a photo of Omran, you'd be quite unusual. Omran, despite being alive, which makes him luckier than a lot of Syrian kids, is a victim we care about. A "worthy" victim.

Syrian "Revolution": Campists unite!

We're duds!

Those of us who support the elected Syrian government over the foreign-supported and supplied proxy war, the fighters of which are a wahhabist, head-chopping rabble, have it all wrong. We're not anti-imperialists, we're "campists."

Former CIA spook endorses Clinton! WaPo!

(Achtung! I despise Donald Trump. Maybe even more than you. I've despised him for many, many years, since long before he decided to run for POTUS. This is not a pro-Trump piece. I discuss here what I believe to be the actual situation.)

Lies, lies, more lies...Milošević exonerated

This is an absolute stunner. Slobodan Milošević has been completely exonerated of being the “mastermind” behind the war crimes in Bosnia. Here's where to find it.

In March this year, the "International Tribunal ... issued its judgement in the case of Radovan Karadžić, the head of the Republika Srpska (RS).

Trackpads: Deliberately Useless Devices?

Recently I managed to drop my laptop less than a third of a meter to the floor on its side. Unfortunately, this this pushed the little USB thingie that runs the wireless mouse up into the housing to the point where the mouse no longer worked.

So, until I returned home, then, I was stuck using the trackpad. There was some bad language involved.

Vũng Tàu: Further than I thought

I was in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam for a doctor's appointment a coupld Fridays ago (nothing serious), and had to return the following Monday.

What to do? Well, Vũng Tàu's only 84km away, why not go there for the weekend? Simple!

Er... not so much

1,000 Apologies, I had to remove my actual e-mail address from this page. I got really tired of sock puppets offering me free sexual favours. (And NO! I don't know how many of them were Russian, and it wouldn't change my vote!) So here's one of those crappy contact forms that I really hate. Did I mention I'm sorry?
