"Why doesn't everybody just shut the fuck up..."

Investigative reporter Seymour M. Hersh has more than a few people in the Administration and Intelligence Community echoing the words of Robert Gates, quoted in our headline as he (Hersh) kinda blows the lid off the now possibly forgotten story of the killing (as in extra-judicial) of Osama Bin Laden in the latest issue of the London review of Books.

Obama v. Warren, et al.

Anyone who would care to take the position that President Obama is NOT a corporatist, take a number and get in line.
The Trans Pacific Partnership will do NOTHING for the "Middle Class," and everything for major traders. As someone pointed out above, it will provide a vehicle (most likely an MRAP, lol) for those respected "non-state actors" i.e. multi-national corporations to go dead on after national policies that cut into their bottom lines. No regard for the people of those nations, since in the brave new world which the President seems to embrace and Senators Warren and Sanders are in full cry over, the only P-word that counts is Profits.
The Clinton Global Initiative is just a way to sugar coat the fact that the corporate-government axis is tilting towards the corporate side of the ledger. The CGI offers an opportunity for anyone with big money to pretend they care about "people" while pursuing greater and greater control of scarcer and scarcer resources...makes you wonder what ol' Bill learned in Oxford.
Trade agreements should be limited to freedom of navigation and currency exchange. Something is SERIOUSLY amiss when it takes years of secret negotiations to produce a secret agreement between "promote commerce."
The Presidential prevarication in response to Senator Warren speaks volumes, and no friendly beer on the White House porch is going to change the President's commitment to the Trans Pacific Partnership in whatever form the economic masters of the universe decide is acceptable to them.

WTF is the NRA Scared of?

Yes, NRA, you are a bunch of cowards. Despite all your big talk about a good guy with a gun being all it takes to stop a bad guy with a gun (no citation required) you are a bunch of pussies. Nashville Tennessee, home of, um, country music I guess, will play host to your national convention (with a  special guest appearance by the ever-so- {insert verb or adjective of your choice here} Woman who was supposed to live in Juneau) and all the fucking guns have to be nonoperational.
Fucking pussies.

Here's a Letter Dan Sullivan should sign on to

Finally, a little attention to the Stingray Cell Tower Emulator built by the venerated (at least by y'r humble editor) Harris Corporation.
Lets hope Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan will join in Senator Grassley and Senator Leahy's concern about Federal overreach!

How the fuck am I supposed to wake up Monday morning?

It is thoroughly depressing to even think about a different voice doing our morning Alaska news.
Bad job, Alaska Public Media. Bad job.
