    Excellent blog post! Mr. Sullivan is quite right, and all the ‘hullabaloo’ about fake safety procedures shows how badly the Elites want to keep their powerful election-altering no-verify touchscreens.

    *** Epstein Truthers Are Obsessed With a Sci-Fi Book About Child Sex Slavery Written by Bill Barr’s Dad ***
    Horrible title/headline, but very good little essay. He’s right about the 70s – I remember Heinlein’s “Time Enough For Love” had the novel’s hero making love to two (identical twins) female clones of himself, and to his very own mother. At the time it was hailed as a great success.
    BTW, if I had somehow come to own that Barr book, it would have gone into the next hot bed of coals resulting from burning fallen tree limbs. My toleration of that kind of ‘literature’ is precisely zero.

    *** Democrats Just Got A Break In Their Trump Tax Return Case ***
    That’s great. Now they have the problem of convincingly pissing it away.

    *** Bernie Sanders’ plan for handling the climate crisis is a genuine revolution ***
    Nice piece. So site owner Markos Moulitsas hasn’t yet ordered the peasants to stick to praising the DNC Chosen One. Surprising.

    *** David Koch Got What He Paid For ***
    Yes he did. I don’t know how much money the man gave to PBS, but in my opinion he got a good return on his dollar there too.

    *** Some Pennsylvania Democrats regret not voting in 2016. They say they’ll be sure to cast a ballot in 2020. ***
    Why is the Warmongering Post peddling this baloney? Back in 2016 we had a choice between two candidates and neither one was fit to be President. Don’t know how many times I’ve had to explain to friends and relative that voting for a criminal is not a good thing. It’s true one of them is going to move into the White House, but at a person is NOT obligated to participate in the tragedy.

    *** Security expert offers solution to prevent hacking of election computers in Rhode Island next year ***
    I’ll suggest a better idea. Go buy 1.1 million pieces of paper and pay somebody to print up some ballots on those pieces of paper. Rhode Island ranks about #45 in population, and the place is really small. Good trial run for other states to observe.

    *** The free, all-natural, and quite handsome solution to Lyme disease and other tick maladies ***
    This looks promising. Little kids were my first concern, but hardly any of those are seen outside anymore. Here in my part of Indiana the fences have been removed to maximize acreage and on account of there no longer being any livestock. Wolves here would have little else besides deer to eat.

    *** A tick detective wants to understand what drives tick abundance ***
    If ticks get to be a problem here, I think I’d invest in a handful of free-run chickens. By concentrating them a bit, you get something actually called a “chicken tractor”.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_tractor

    With a pair of wheels on one end and with some handles on the other, this rig can be slowly moved to a new patch of land you want cleared of vegetation & weed seeds, and to get well fertilized. After the garden gets planted, time for the Free Range part. Just keep the water dish and feeding tray inside so they can be sheltered at night against roving dogs and cats. The “pet” factor could become a problem. Perhaps the best solution would be how an uncle handled the single steer he would feed during the summer. They were invariably named Hamburger. How about Drumstick1, 2, etc.? On the other hand, perhaps a bit of research would find how our ancestors kept their small flocks through the winter without spending too much effort or money on them.
