62 Degrees in Philly and one of the brightest rainbows I've ever seen (actually, it's a double rainbow that was showing a full arc, but I couldn't get the picture in time).

Concerned that someone is going to spoil the new Star Wars movie? Now is time to take action and take the Star Wars No Spoiler Pledge. Just "Like" the Page (and read the Pinned Post to see what your promising) and that's it. Let’s see if we can get 1 Million “Likes” before the premier and maybe we can find someone to make a Charitable Contribution while were at it.

Just go visit the Star Wars No Spoiler Pledge Page (http://bit.ly/SWNoSpoilerPledge) and CLICK “LIKE.” And please share.

Scary reality of our broken election laws.
Get ready for the most cheating in a U.S. federal election in modern times.  This will happen for two reasons. First: "legal cheating" such as gerrymandering and voter suppression laws have reached their effectiveness limits and they can no longer compensate for  increasing demographic disadvantages facing the Republican Party, as well as the hemorrhage of intelligent conservatives (e.g. scientists, law professionals and military officers) who can no longer rationalize any continued relationship with the GOP’s plummet into lunacy. The second reason for panic is simpler – if a Democrat enters office in 2016, the courts will eventually rule that corporations are not “people.” They will rule that it is okay to limit the buying of elections. The courts will also (winds are blowing) finally end the travesty of gerrymandering.
 
Fortunately for Rupert Murdoch, the Kochs and their Saudi partners, there is an ace up their sleeve. Through shells, they own every company that makes voting machines in the U.S. Machines that have proved to be easily hackable.  In blue states, this does not much matter, since most of them require that voters be provided with a paper receipt that then goes into a box, the old-fashioned way. Back-door owners do not dare attempt major exploits, wherever random precinct audits could nail them.  But red state voters seem blithely trusting of electronics – so long as it’s mostly white males pulling the levers.
 
Now comes a smoking gun. Without paper audit trails, the cheaters in pyrotechnically-corrupt Kansas thought they were safe, till mathematicians arrived!  “Analyzing election returns at a precinct level, Wichita State mathematician Beth Clarkson found that candidate support was correlated, to a statistically significant degree, with the size of the precinct. In Republican primaries, the bias has been toward the establishment candidates over tea partiers. In general elections, it has favored Republican candidates over Democrats, even when the demographics of the precincts in question suggested that the opposite should have been true.” http://americablog.com/2015/08/mathematician-actual-voter-fraud-kansas-republicans.html
 
Hence, shouldn’t Tea Partiers be just as angry at the Murdoch Machine as democrats are?  Shouldn’t they make common cause over just this one issue?  “According to their analysis, Mitt Romney could have received over a million extra votes in the 2012 Republican primary, mostly coming at the expense of Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. President Obama also ceded significant votes to John McCain due to this irregularity, as well.” 

Could this underlie some of the support for Donald Trump – the only GOP candidate with the guts to tell off Murdoch and his machine? Read this article and see how Clarkson has been blocked at every level with a consistency that shows complete, Orwell-level contempt for even figleaf accountability.

Holly crap, this is going to be abused so badly.

This is some seriously spooky stuff, right here. I've always felt that one of the most frightening times in human existence will come when people can retroactively alter history by creating "digital people" that are indistinguishable from real people. Once that is possible, any misguided desire to change history to a particular political view becomes possible.

Think it's hard to shake belief in certain conspiracy theories with historical fact now? Just wait until people have "seen the truth with their own eyes." The tech shown here is amazing — how close are we to the point where we won't be able to tell the difference between real historical footage and a simulacrums?

Imagine the trouble when there is footage of Einstein saying "My math proves that God created the universe, and that evolution is a false theory." It's already hard enough to get people to think — when handed a false narrative that they can "see" is real, they won't have to anymore.

Republicans Warn Iran Against Nuclear Deal With Obama (Ironically, if the Iranians take the threat seriously (which I doubt), this may actually help Obama).
