Yup; it's that kind of Switchfoot tour. Tim Foreman explains

When you're a band with as much success as Switchfoot, it can be difficult to cram everything - in this case, 22 years, 11 albums and a string of hits - into one succinct concert. Two hours isn't nearly enough time to deep-dive into such a catalog of music and memories.

NMN's Anti-aging magic or science?   

Cache   

Age slowly and silently creeps up on all of us until we start looking and feeling older, but by then, it may be too late...or is it?

I found this fascinating story on NPR and thought a few of us might be willing to at least try reversing the aging process. It can be expensive, meaning it may help wealthy people live longer than the rest of us. But maybe for a few months, we can steal back a few years of our youth:

In short: Better understanding the mechanisms of aging has led to promising treatments to slow, stop and even reverse the symptoms of growing old. And turning back the clock this way isn't just about a longer life span; it's about extending healthy, vital years. Could pills that mimic the positive benefits of exercise, at least in mice, be effective for humans? And what does this portend for the future, if we will all live decades longer? This season of Future You is dedicated to the human body and what capabilities we will have in the coming decades. You can find the latest episodes on YouTube or at npr.org/futureyou.

          

Ron Johnson gushes Conspiracy Theories, doesn't Trust FBI and CIA, before and now after.    

Cache   

Ron Johnson became Wisconsin's Senator because he didn't understand the Affordable Care Act, and hated a program offering more people access to affordable health insurance. He even said...


And it only got worse from there. In Washington, Johnson's blathering idiocy became the talk of the town:

And then he got reelected...true!

Johnson plays Trump as Victim, says he's "...never seen a president, administration, be sabotaged from the day after the election: Amazing. Let's remind our clueless Dumb Ron Johnson why that's not true either:
1. Here’s John Boehner offering his plans for Obama’s agenda: “We're going to do everything — and I mean everything we can do — to kill it, stop it, slow it down, whatever we can.”

2. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell summed up his plan to National Journal: “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”

3. Mike Pence, underscored the point with a clip from Patton, showing the general rallying his troops for war against their Nazi enemy: “We’re going to kick the hell out of him all the time! We’re going to go through him like crap through a goose!”

4. Even though the economy was in free fall, not one House Republican had voted for the effort to revive it, prompting a wave of punditry about a failed party refusing to help clean up its own mess and dooming itself to irrelevance.

5. Have we forgotten that right when President Obama took office in 2009, the Republican leadership in Congress planned a no-honeymoon strategy of all-out resistance to Obama, even though the country was in an economic meltdown? Then-Sen. George Voinovich (R-Ohio) said that “if [Obama] was for it, we had to be against it.”
So it's mind-bending to hear Dumb Ron Johnson whine about the supposed "attacks" on the grifting Trump family presidency:
Johnson: "I have never in my lifetime seen a president after being elected, not having some measure of well wishes from his opponents; I've never seen a president, administration, be sabotaged from the day after the election; I've never seen no measure of a honeymoon what-so-ever." 
Johnson, chairman of the Senate's Homeland Security committee, rambled from one conspiracy theory to another (just like every Trump cultist), and admitted he doesn't trust the CIA or the FBI.
Johnson: "No, I don't — absolutely not. No, and I didn't trust them back then."


So, Nothing like this ever happened under Obama? Trump Investigations plays into GOP Victim-Hood: Here's just a quick reminder below. Note: Remember Trump's own attempts to seek out Obama's birth certificate to prove he was not a U.S. citizen and a secret Muslin:
MSNBC: Republicans made aggressive use of their investigative powers ... matters involving Hillary Clinton, her use of email as secretary of state, her conduct of foreign policy and the Clinton Foundation ... House Republicans unleashed a barrage of subpoenas ... a half dozen GOP-led House committees conducted protracted investigations of the 2012 attacks on U.S. diplomats in Benghazi, Libya ... investigations of the 2009-2011 Operation Fast and Furious episode – a botched initiative against drug cartels that ended up putting guns in the hands of murderers ... investigations into the IRS's treatment of conservatives, and his administration’s loan guarantee to the failed solar-panel startup, Solyndra. And much more.
Who can forget Johnson's imagined "secret society?" 


Or this Johnson gem:


Ron Johnson now has his eye on the governorship in Wisconsin. Just a little advice to anyone thinking about moving to a state who's economy is held hostage by the gerrymandered Republican Party determined to not change a thing because after 8 years of control, everything is perfect now; DON'T. 



          

Trump/Perdue not that into Farmers...   

Cache   

UPDATE 10/7: I think farmers have had enough, maybe, I hope anyway...
1. “I went to Madison feeling financially scared and emotionally depressed but hopeful,” said Paul Adams, who runs a 500-cow organic dairy near Eleva, WI."I came home feeling financially scared, emotionally depressed, unwanted, and unneeded.”

2. Brittany Olson left her Barron County farm at 2am to make the trip to Expo and hear Perdue speak. “To go through the effort to see the USDA secretary, only for him to say that small farms like ours likely have no future made me feel like little more than a peasant in a system of modern-day feudalism,” Olson said.

3. “To me, it really drew a line in the sand on just where this administration stands,” said Chippewa County dairy farmer George Polzin.
Danielle Erdvick summed it up this way in the story:
But I sense a fire growing in the belly of the family farmers I meet in my work with Farmers Union. Farmers are weary. But there’s a growing flicker that’s starting to feed a change in the narrative. No more will they be spoon-fed a top-down vision for rural America. Instead, I see a drive for a farmscape where fair prices, local food systems, clean water, and land conservation are at the heart of farm policy. How can we achieve it? It’ll take actually enforcing America’s antitrust laws and holding corporations accountable when they try to monopolize an industry. It’ll mean addressing market manipulation. It’ll mean not raising our hackles, as farmers and ag groups, every time someone wants to talk about clean water or livestock siting. It’ll mean continuing to adopt regenerative practices and thinking outside the box so we’re protecting our natural resources for our children and grandchildren.
__________________________________________________________________________________________________

Farmers will never stop voting for Republicans. Sadly, GOP promises of "small government" simply mean they don't really have to do anything for their constituents, and deregulation is anything that basically leaves them alone.

Tariff War is not Their Fight: It seems farmers are okay sacrificing their livelihoods for big corporate interests seeking intellectual rights and protections. 

And then the last shoe dropped; Ag Sec. Sonny Perdue told us what big corporate Republican politicians were really thinking about family farmers:

Perdue told reporters that he doesn’t know if the family dairy farm can survive as the industry moves toward a factory farm model ... “In America, the big get bigger and the small go out. I don’t think in America we, for any small business, we have a guaranteed income or guaranteed profitability.”
A few farmers suddenly realized what was really going on...
Jerry Volenec, a fifth-generation Wisconsin dairy farmer with 330 cows, left the Perdue event feeling discouraged about his future. “What I heard today from the secretary of agriculture is there’s no place for me. Can I get some support from my state and federal government?"

Darin Von Ruden, president of the Wisconsin Farmers Union and a third-generation dairy farmer who runs a 50-cow organic farm (said) getting bigger at the expense of smaller operations like his is “not a good way to go.  Do we want one corporation owning all the food in our country?” 
Democrats, Governor Tony Evers backs Family Farms, despite never getting their vote, but after Sonny Perdue's comment, even our laid back Gov. had to say something:

"Are they struggling? Absolutely. But I think at the end of the day we need to get behind them rather than saying, ah maybe you should go larger. I, frankly, resent that the Department of Agriculture secretary from the federal government came in and kind of lambasted them."
But don't take Evers word for it, here's a comment made at the Minnesota Farmfest about CAFO's. Note: Why were visa's for dairy labor ever determined to be seasonal and not year around?:


Trump Piled on First: Remember this...
Wisconsin dairy farmers are still feeling the sting of Trump's visit to Milwaukee in July, where the president downplayed the suffocation felt by farmers here because of Trump's own tariffs.

Trump: "Some of the farmers are doing well. ... We're over the hump. We're doing really well."
Farmer Response...:
"If he's saying farmers are over the hump, he would be badly mistaken," said Darin Von Ruden, a third generation dairy farmer. "In order to get over the hump we need to stop losing dairy farms."
From PBS's Market to Market: Trump's says farmers are happy...


Farmers are slamming Trump's $28 billion farm bailout — more than double Obama's 2009 payment to automakers — as a 'Band-Aid'.
Perdue editorial doesn't repair Damage: Nope, his word salad backtrack to obscure how he really feels, is a little late. In fact, Perdue reminds farmers how this whole problem was really Trump creation:
Purdue: "President Donald Trump has made it his mission to support American agriculture and negotiate better trade deals so our productive farmers can sell their bounty around the globe."
And don't forget how Scott Walker pushed oversupply in the dairy industry.

Here's what one farmer, "a great patriot," really thinks about Trump:



In Gays Mills, WI, over production and large dairy farms are locking many out of getting into farming. From WPT's Portraits from Rural Wisconsin:

TLC’s All-American Muslim is a reality show depicting five Lebanese-American families in Dearborn, MI.

FreedomWorks Statement in Response to $984 Billion CBO Budget Deficit Estimate   

Cache   

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) recently released final estimated budget deficit for FY 2019, which shows the deficit reaching $984 billion, Jason Pye, FreedomWorks Vice President of Legislative Affairs, commented:

“Democrats and Republicans must be held responsible for the outrageous deficit reported today by the CBO. Fiscal sanity has all but escaped Washington, as evidenced by this year’s cap-busting budget deal. This unsustainable situation is only going to get worse.

“In spite of record revenues, the deficit has grown to a nearly insurmountable figure under Congress’ watch — or more accurately, its lack thereof. If the federal government is to one day get its fiscal house in order, Congress needs to take a hard look at cutting spending, which means considering real reforms to mandatory spending programs, the primary drivers of the deficit.”


          

Regulatory Action Center Review - October 7, 2019   

Cache   

Welcome to FreedomWorks Foundation’s nineteenth regulatory review of 2019! Our Regulatory Action Center proudly updates you with our favorite tidbits from the swamp. We want to smash barriers between bureaucracy and the American people by delivering regulatory news straight to FreedomWorks activists. Check back in two weeks for the next edition.

1) Video of the Week: Unsurprisingly, the United States is not the first country to experience ballooning budgets and astronomical deficits. In the mid-1990’s, Canada’s debt grew to as high as 70% of GDP, similar to our current debt situation. In this weeks video, John Stossell sits down with Canadian economist David Henderson to discuss how Canada managed to tackle their debt problem by cutting government spending and reducing waste.

2) Why Is the CDC Still Fostering Potentially Deadly Confusion About Vaping and Lung Disease?: “Media outlets, following the lead of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), continue to blame recent cases of severe respiratory illnesses among vapers on "vaping" and "e-cigarettes" in general, falsely implying a link to legal nicotine products. This misinformation is fostering public confusion that may lead to more disease and death, both from smoking and from the black-market products that have been implicated in the lung disease cases.” https://God.blue/splash.php?url=6SjRqTy_PLUS_q4i_SLASH_BaLvDwjU5LYo5hqrTAPcncS6Z59cBI17GhxDWSlV9y4fMu11LQhMloD6303T1DZvI3OYjOrfYH1lj3e6UQEvvI474Wrf_SLASH_C7Guhl29I18OwdxNIVkUTwqaD30e1TYCL3Dm4lRVWFAUlqQcn9wGumGUhZGLOqwoaCpfWxPrtJGKJtnLjMdeimLFpyR94ExQPSqZ2almk_SLASH_T3y2VCHn38d08nSo60JLkc9I_EQUALS_

3) FBI using Facebook ads to gather Russian intelligence: report: “The FBI is reportedly using Facebook ads to gather intelligence on Russia, specifically targeting those who may be or know Russian spies. The FBI is running ads in the Washington, D.C., area, CNN reported on Wednesday, that direct to the FBI field office's website that describes its counterintelligence team and encourages visitors to meet "in person." https://God.blue/splash.php?url=j7zEgIf48m_PLUS__SLASH_gwf7m6GXZCB_PLUS_zfuMK80WmRE3B1rPaEC6d4O7jt5IQc_PLUS_JpSg88HkED_PLUS_09hQRBld5_SLASH_7VmSpd5NjCLwZjoXQ_PLUS_wjLPNPH5H8xDzLinl4AtkKgWJNZ8_SLASH_krJVasYnF4BClRl_SLASH_Gcw8UB9Pjl5wJdIQdxCr2yxQYZFsN0BsZqn_SLASH_EloKYy8ytUBhGpQAU2ayy_PLUS_STPcFmYjUYNx6b9QZXNFD0qVT60ZQT9pAwjRio_EQUALS_

4) Federal Court Upholds FCC Decision to Roll Back Obama-Era Net Neutrality Rules: “Today, by a 2-1 vote, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit sided largely with the FCC, upholding the primary regulatory rollback as a valid exercise of its authority. In the nearly 200 page opinion, which is heavy on technical detail, the court wrote that while the challengers raised "numerous objections" aiming to show that the FCC's reclassification is "unreasonable," the judges found them "unconvincing." https://God.blue/splash.php?url=T7p9JhSK89l8PuIo_SLASH_lPviBEtdOonpNCvldFIOKRRdcVIgKn0pAJdle4iwaOpUYT0w9adTCK2f2fMoWoVAsNj1d3dDsyrwL9MfBlBBbLReddGf5G09sNzt1m0O6Ry9tx5ZaMHGb54EUWRAYz0jKR1sO1NEjmwRoQ5EDKLXLkhe1_SLASH_yEuKCbt29lYv_PLUS_B1HQTsXj_SLASH_V7tr1XtmjyuSNtOJGF5Kw_EQUALS__EQUALS_

5) Trump to issue executive order ‘protecting’ Americans from ‘Medicare for All’ campaign proposals pushed by Democrats: “The executive order, which he is scheduled to discuss at a speech in Florida later Thursday, is intended to bolster Medicare Advantage, private Medicare insurance for seniors that currently covers 22 million people, senior administration officials said on a call with reporters. The plan would also offer more affordable plan options, increase use of telehealth services and bring payments in Medicare fee-for-service program in line with payments for Medicare Advantage, officials said.” https://God.blue/splash.php?url=KvOKc9VnGoKHGhGBXJozIs_PLUS_3yZDywkC84rUI5_SLASH_fwidkGi2Ao0wDBCkOGXZ71MbipVJP7hTF7YXBUSFguy5tQygfCMBAWOwtkFvSlotto_SLASH_CTWsmfItLUtruCeN_PLUS_wujs_PLUS_xdS2VzamlQMOzzbrxXQC2pBqFkOc4xRQ_SLASH_rPoTs5nUEF2k33kgbbGovp3pC3mzUtU2jFEcr7brfNzruiom_PLUS_ym5MA_EQUALS__EQUALS_

6) Treasury to create tool to help people redeem billions in unclaimed savings bonds: “Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) on Wednesday said that the Treasury Department will create an online tool to help people redeem billions of dollars in savings bonds. About $26 billion in matured savings bonds are in the U.S. Treasury and have yet to be redeemed. Using the department's forthcoming tool, people will be able to verify against Treasury Department records if they have any savings bonds dated after 1974 that can be redeemed, Kennedy's office said in a news release.” https://God.blue/splash.php?url=S0B6BzsjlxtzWhso6hiq0VqFcmNQLOXpQx87EkIpy_PLUS_JWcASWGXPcp8t2s74Vfs_SLASH_hIyqbT00JaTKgOcnG6jPqNTcK1BLORgTriv0hKjO4MnXMgEJpaul73KU5UkyWofVdjbzGabaC7UYsqjZOLbwAplro9HslHGieqz8h3Kw1BS9o3ewxmiUaJR0W8HDZfJMOKQ6koRhwmuPCOoUoZcmNFCNcevO5DeiqUNz25L01c9E_EQUALS_

7) Trump takes heat from right over vaping crackdown: “The Trump administration is under fire from conservative groups and some GOP lawmakers, who are pushing back over its planned crackdown on e-cigarette flavors. They say the administration is overreaching, and the flavor ban will harm small businesses, a violation of core Republican free market principles.” https://God.blue/splash.php?url=VEXxhxcWUKujH_SLASH_3Pu9JHkZgBFHqxPe_SLASH_AHWOkeVTdpEohwEG0yR_SLASH_G2Fz0l8iJqClKBg2EIZZKag8M4oAWlrpJmlS3LPNAjr_PLUS_oO_SLASH_LHZspYiSVHq5I7W5tFiAcAfkPGOTgIF5rv0OpssWFV5cD0Kgyo1khgSFM0it3eyXYwXorUTw6bxybn5uqtGSgkGRTM7OaD


          

Into October...   

Cache   


The temps have rapidly dropped this week as October rolled in and with around 12 hours daylight and sunset it`s time to get the bike lights charged and fitted onto the two winter bikes...


With both older Surly Pugsleys kitted with lights, full frame bags for waterproofs, and extra clothes the black/orange Pug is ready as usual for the beach...


And the Alfine IGH  29+ Pug (aka a KramPug) is ready for trails - this bike will be getting used more now for mid week nightrides from home around the newly surfaced all weather trails made this year around the local Estates woods, going to be great for mud free winter cycling this year!...



Still time for daylight rides after work and we have had a week of extreme high/low tides which you may have noticed with the last half dozen blog posts,
Tuesday would see a 5.7 meter high tide around 5pm and there would be no beach to cycle  at Broadsands along to North Berwick as it was swallowed up by the waves...



Stunning light once again on the coast...














Into town and had to take the road along to the harbour..








Did get some sand to cycle along the east beach!...
