Achievement Unlocked: Bully the bully.  :(
So.... I'm looking for help in reporting posts.  It's obvious which are general harassment and which are threats of violence, so please report them accurately.  With any luck, he'll get booted from G+ altogether.  His posts were in my stream this morning as he entered communities and added hostile new threads.  I know, the odds are high that he's closeted and just lashing out wildly, but reporting still seems like an effective way to deal with him?

Done. Let's hope he is shown the door, soon.

I've already signed up.  I doubt that my kin would ever participate in gene testing, but at least I can contribute my genetic pattern to autism research.
 
Researchers have launched the world’s largest study on autism and genes—and they want you to participate.

So is this thing evidence of a beef barbecue long past?  That's a wide bone.  Anyone know who checks out these things?
So what does bone look like after it's been in the dirt for years? (click to embiggen) bone? Isn't this diameter too big to be a pet animal? From the flat cut (but only one side), maybe a beef bone? Should I be calling 311? Who checks out this kind of stuff?

First excitement at my doorstep, and I slept through it at 3:30am.  :(  Drunk girl hit neighbor's car (totaled it) which jumped forward and hit my car (scratching fender which I don't care about).  Police left case # on my car.   Driver was taken to station for being drunk and not having proof of insurance.  Neighbors filled me in on the details.  Apparently this happens often on this block.  I'll ask about a speed bump at the next Jordan Neighborhood safety meeting.

Also, I finally got brave today and chased off a car parked in my back yard.  Many different vehicles do it often.  If I make a habit of it, then maybe they'll break their habit of parking on my grass.

If it's your property and they park there, you can have them tagged and towed, and (I think- check first) They'll be the ones charged.

It's 6am with clear skies.  Why are the city alarm sirens going off?

Bernie, wrote the forewords to Bill Press book Buyer's Remorse, a book critical of President Obama's balanced view in the direction of America. Now if President Obama had been such a failure, no democrat would stand a chance to win the 2016 election. So here's Bernie, trying to win the Presidency on the coat tails of Mr. Obama a person he criticized and stabbed in the back. Furthermore, he's too old to be POTUS, not even the democrats could pass his far left wing political plans; if nothing else Hillary, remained loyal to the President Obama!

The US Drug Enforcement Agency will consider reclassifying #marijuana.  I'm sure a lot of online petitions are circulating now.  Here's one from a medical doctor and political candidate. #ItsInOurHands
Dr. Jill Stein, Green for President, said on 4/20 that "it’s time to take marijuana off the black market, end crime and violence related to marijuana trafficking, stop wasting money and ruining lives by prosecuting victimless crimes, reduce prison populations, increase tax revenue, allow sick people their medicine, let farmers grow marijuana and hemp, and give responsible adults their freedom by legalizing it!"

I've been saying for years it needs to be treated like alcohol or tobacco - legal and regulated. The main reason it's easier for kids to get weed than beer is that beer is regulated, weed (except for a few states) is underground. 

At the absolute bare minimum federally, it needs to be moved off Schedule 1 ("no medical use") to Schedule 2 or 3. (Schedule 3 is where Marinol is, but that's probably asking too much....)

I made another call to 911 tonight.  I may eventually start asking the dispatchers their names.  I haven't recognized a familiar voice yet, but I'm sure I'll reach that point soon enough.  :)

Perhaps only some of us will get it.  It might amuse someone who works there, though.  Eh, +Jonathan Cass?

Oh, I agree completely.  The ideaspace is completely different.  (Until pandas break out the folding chair weapons.)

Mark the calendar date.  I just signed up for a smartphone.  I'll be retiring my reliable old flip phone.  Their discount offer (linked below) ends today.  I figured a cell phone that interfaced with my Rufus Cuff (still awaiting semi-patiently) would be a good thing, and this offer is affordable for me.
