Celebrate Cecil 
Unlike the hundreds of anonymous African lions killed every year by trophy hunters, Cecil the lion has a name, a public face, and a scientific legacy. Since his gruesome killing, apparently at the hands of an American dentist after he was lured off his home in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe,...

+The Crystal Dragon When people started arguing that "If you care about X thing, but not MY particular favorite issue, you are terrible." Right around then. Just sayin'.

Stop teasing  me, Trump. I Cannae  take it.

....And a Clear  Pathway seems to open up for +Bernie Sanders  to win the General Election

  Run,  TrumpParty, Run!

#Bernie2014                 #TrumpParty2014  

Edit: Note to the Commentators: 
I generally like to keep things on-topic with minimum of Total Cray and wild ad-hominems , and general asininity. But as Trump is the topic , all that nonsense becomes oddly on-topic. Doesnt it
Im letting this one play out. 
Donald Trump says the chances that he will launch a third-party White House run will “absolutely” increase if the Republican National Committee is unfair to him during the 2016 primary season.

Message To the StreaM: Lets Fix Google Plus Sharing Circle 

This was an extremely popular post, that made me briefly (In)famous . 

Now you get to share in the glorious helpful fun . 

(1) add your helpful suggestions below,
(2) ands  them reshare them  with this post
(3) and Notify everyone  in  your favorite circle. 
 
NO MORE GIFS!!!!

They are rude,  intrusive,  set to autoplay,  and use up my computing power without my permission.

Google could have set up the computation to run on their servers, instead of dumping them onto us like dog pissing on  firehydrants.

They slow my system down and crash it!

I've had enough.

If you share more than 1 a week you are an asshole ,and wrecking this platform.

Gifs are reaching critical mass and making G+ Useless.

It was cute when they were rare. Now its a big FU.
The entire stream is filled with them!  Enough!

I thought this was the adult platform.
( We have youtube for that goofiness and its not set to autoplay )

If you share GIFS , I will have to  move you to a gif circle, where I will:
1)  turn it down ,
2) weed people out,
3) and even block them if necessary to keep it out of my stream.

If you value my participation and engagement  on this platform, On your shares, and on mine; you will stop sharing Gifs!
 

#IhateGIFS  #MessageToTheStream   #GooglePlus  

PS: I never ask this either --- because it's also obnoxious ---- but for the good of Google+ N please magnify this signal!  SHARE EVERYWHERE.

< Yes Sharing appeals are  obnoxious, but nothing is as obnoxious as a geek-sharing platform wrecked by mindless auto-playing Doodads. Take it to facebook   or 4chan where it belongs. >


EDIT  This post was inspired my friend +Clare Cosgrove and her own recent frustrations,  at not being able to mute / stop and turn off gifs that she is posted to. #Solidarity .


Yes, I am poor, Yes, my computer is awful, NO, Chrome isnt an option.

Boys Scouts (finally)  end Bigotry: Robert Gates does it again.

http://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/davidbadash/breaking_in_historic_vote_boy_scouts_elect_to_end_ban_on_gay_adult_scout_leaders

The irony is one of 2 main Scouting Founders was Gay and a cross Dresser. 

http://mobile.nytimes.com/2012/07/20/opinion/scoutings-gay-founder.html?referrer=&_r=0
And He, Baden- Powell, was the one who imbued it with military and religiousity overtones. Its a shame he screwed it up. 
( According to Hitchens , He was also a Hitler-lover ) 


Ernest Seton's  original  Cooperative , environmentalist , pro-native , vision of the Woodcraft Indians
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodcraft_Indians
is so much more appealing than the churchie,  Jr soldiers of Powell.  

#Queerculture     

EDIT: Man, I spoke too soon.
" Chartered organizations will continue to select their adult leaders, and religious chartered organizations may continue to use religious beliefs as criteria for selecting adult leaders, including matters of sexuality. "

Well fuck that. The vast majority of all Troops are sponsored at and by Churches. 

Its the official Mormon Youth program

" ...This change allows Scouting's members and parents to select local units, chartered to organizations with similar beliefs, that best meet the needs of their families. This change also respects the right of religious chartered organizations to choose adult volunteer leaders whose beliefs are consistent with their own.  "

It lets the BSA have their Bigotry cake and  still get full public accommodations. 

I suppose its a step forward.  But unless its accompanied by massive Policy  statements of inclusion and promotion of  gay acceptance at the National Level, its not enough. 

It will just provide a permanent cover to hate. Its not enough to let a few groups not discriminate. The culture at the top must change, so gays wont be discriminated against in practice .

It will take a long time before White privileges and Gay homophobic will end. The Churches that lead to make the subject human than aracahic sterotypes the better.

The Walkmen - Heaven

Our children will always hear
Romantic tales of distant years
Our guilty age may come and go
Our crooked dreams will always flow

Stick with me
Oh you're my best friend
All of my life
You've always been

Remember remember
All we fight for
Remember remember
All we fight for

Don't leave me
Oh you're my best friend
All of my life
You've always been
Don't leave me now
You're my best friend
All of my life
You've always been

Remember remember
All we fight for

Introduction
"Put a little something here so people know they found the right Adam"

NO ONE, has ever told me "found the right Adam" ...
< Well, not without taking it back, or changing their number >

I am an able-bodied disabled person, an outgoing shut-in, a cynical believer;
too smart for my own good, and too gullible to be left alone without adult supervision;
A realist with his head in the clouds,  and 2 feet in the grave.

I'm up at all the wrong times, with all the wrong crowd----or just alone.
A Brave man, A bold man--- terrified of things I cant put into words...yet ARE words that can be placed into me.

I'm up with the Down Crowd, and Down with the Up Posse,

I grew up a foreigner to this land, yet I am a natural-born citizen ( to the U.S ) that speaks only English fluently.

I'm looking for water-brothers--- in all the wrong places;

I'm mature enough to have taken every side, in every major argument.
I DO call people out on their bullshit. So rest assured,  when I insult you, I am really just practicing extreme SELF-Criticism;  try it sometime.

I am NOT an atheist myself, but I Do admire atheist positions.
I respect religions as pathways, But NOT as "belief-systems". I bend both ways, but I am not "convert-able" .
If you actually believe in something wacky, like Twilight or  ( Vampirism/ Zombism /Infecting Ghosts ) , and Insist on converting me, on G+, I am not responsible for your tears, as one poor Bloody Soul found out. 

If your wacky beliefs involve time traveling phone-booths and sonic-powered home improvement tools, that particular Time-capsule dematerialized a LONG time ago...

I very rarely delete comments, or Block people.
 I tolerate dissent, and  wide variety of opinions BUT...i really DO post things for a reason,
BUT:  I am a bit of a TotalTopic-nazi,  I reserve the right to turn a threadjack into a brand new post.

But some arguments have become tedious and stupid to me.

Targeted Notification I sort people I follow into personal interests, and reserve the right to Notify-you according to your interests, if you add me---unless you opt in to me my "Never Notify" circle. My sucess rate is over  90% .  But try not to be a jerk if tag you in by accident.

DO TELL Me your interests.
This is a Social Network, and I dont want to spam anyone. Arent you here to be known, and meet like and interesting minds? NO?
then be quiet and let the adults interact. You'll figure this out.




Bragging rights
I have never kissed the editor of the Radio-Times; I DOUBT your commitment to Sparkle-Motion, ... "I am training it _to like_ being where it is put" ... "I try never to be serious ---as it damages, I believe, ones nerve-endings" ... I mean what I say and say what i mean ... covered in nerve damage "too small to be detected by science" , ... No, Sailors swear like ME
