Is it bipartisan enough if I say "in your fucking reactionary faces?" Or is that bad form?

I don't care what people call it as long as I can watch kitty videos.

Today is the 75th anniversary of the start of the Flint Sit-Down Strike. Occupation in the face of injustice is the best of American traditions.

Some one/group has an anti Humane Society "watchdog" website.

It looks fairly innocuous when you first look at it. Just a collection of publicly available financials and stuff with the appearance of being pro-animals and just holding a big NGO accountable to it's mission. Then if you tease it out a little it appears to critique the Humane Society as far-left "animal rights" group, compares it to the much more controversial PETA and lists a bunch of animal shelters saying the website doesn't distinguish between kill and no-kill shelters but the spot check I did was all kill shelters (spot check not definitive).

I didn't set out to make a point here really. I saw that +Sean Bonner posted a cool pic of Doris Day wearing a shirt that said "Be kind to animals or I'll kill you" and I looked for the pic and her animal rescue organization's 990 came up in the Google image search, which led me to this odd website that is very well made and seemingly a front (in my uneducated and mostly humble opinion).

Anyway, I sometimes go on little 'down the rabbit hole' like research tangents when I'm listening to music in the early morning. I thought this one was odd enough to interest a couple of people.

Here's some opposition info on Humane Watch:

There's a bunch more but I'll stop there.

Conclusions? Humane Watch is a well-funded creepy animal industry propaganda and lobbying front group.

Sometimes I think I have too much time on my hands. Sometimes I don't.

PLEASE SIGN Petition for the Humane Society of US to actually put 'boots on the ground' and begin teaching humane education. We continue to kill 8 million dogs and cats in US. No need to if we just reach the younger generation. http://www.change.org/petitions/humane-society-of-the-united-states-please-spend-your-millions-and-put-boots-on-the-ground-for-humane-education#

Hey there G+ Banjo Players,

Thought I'd share my circle of Banjo Players since it's been a while. It's still growing and still producing some pretty great conversations. It might be topping out a little at just shy of 350 folks. I guess we'll see.

This circle is a mix of amateurs and professionals. Bluegrass, Old Time or any ol' kind of style you've decided you play.

If you're included in error and don't play the banjo let me know and I'll clear that up.

If you aren't included and do play the banjo, well let me know and I'll clear that up too!

I've really met some great folks, got tips on playing, got tips on tech matters, shared favorite performers, been able to see folks' posting vids and audio of themselves playing traditionals and originals... all in all a great group of people from all walks of life who play the banjo. Many multi-instrumentalists as well.

Anyway, here's where my Banjo Player circle is at. Save your own banjo circle and as you meet more folks, share it back. Feel free to let other banjo folks you know that they can get in touch with me and I'll be sure to add them in as well.

Thanks,
Duke

His mom's gay and he's a nice guy. My mom's gay and I'm a jackass. No different than any other families.

Thank you Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Your cowardly decision to bow to rightwing pressure and renege on funding Planned Parenthood breast screenings for women reminded Kimber and I that we should donate $100 to Planned Parenthood tonight.

I usually keep a much shorter beard. This is an anomaly and I'll trim it later this week.
