It’s Not About Bernie. It’s About The Revolution.

Comes A Time. Not THAT Comes A Time. So Beautiful It Aches.

Comes a time when the blind man takes your hand
Says, “Don’t you see?
Gotta make it somehow on the dreams you still believe
Don’t give it up, you got an empty cup
That only love can fill, only love can fill”

Been walkin’ all mornin’, went walkin’ all night
I can’t see much difference between the dark and light
And I feel the wind and I taste the rain
Never in my mind to cause so much pain

Comes a time when the blind man takes your hand
Says, “Don’t you see?
Gotta make it somehow on the dreams you still believe
Don’t give it up, you got an empty cup
Only love can fill, only love can fill”

From day to day just letting it ride
You get so far away from how it feels inside
You can’t let go ’cause you’re afraid to fall
But the day may come when you can’t feel at all

Comes a time when the blind man takes your hand
Says, “Don’t you see?
Gotta make it somehow on the dreams you still believe
Don’t give it up, you got an empty cup
That only love can fill, only love can fill, only love can fill”

–Robert Hunter, Grateful Dead, “Comes A Time”

SpaceX: Some People Are Pretty Good At Math, Apparently

It fairly boggles the mind that this is possible.

Just thinking about the math necessary to pull something like this off makes my right-hemisphere-dominant brain hurt.

If I was a cynical conspiracy theorist, I’d swear that the video footage you see below is actually footage of a rocket launched from a barge and played back in reverse.

Paul Krugman: Bernie Sanders’ increasingly “ugly” campaign is a sad finish to what was supposed to be a “positive and idealistic” race

“ISIS Was Bombed Into Existence”

 

Even in a Pentagon fantasy world in which all ISIS fighters are killed off, that wouldn’t prevent the emergence of groups even more destructive than ISIS. Extremism cannot be bombed out of existence. ISIS, one must note, was bombed into existence.
