    So, I found a gem in my town. It’s one of those big houses on side streets. But here’s the fun with this house! Every room has all kinds of cool stuff, history, etc. The twist is the LP section. I got totally emersed in there, & they had a section (booth?) where you could listen before buying! Reminded me of the 70s! Then, you can go on patio & think about whatever you should/shouldn’t buy! Get your cuppa java & discuss w/self! Name of place is Bump&Grind. Bump for music, grind for coffee!😂 This is one of those pop up places, but they’ll be at that location thru December. Only open, Sat/Sun.

    Lawdy, I had to escape outta there! All my stolen old albums (not just songs) were there, just singing to me! Jimi Hendrix, Gladys, Four Tops Live, Commodores Live, Black Gold (from 70s) & on, & on. These are those LPs that had writing & inserts inbetween covers. Place is beautiful, almost like seeing your life in music! That’s my Sat/Sun treasure place. But I’m pacing myself. I’ve only checked out the main floor of that house! Haven’t gone to upper floors yet! Lawdy have mercy!😂💞

      Apart from Hey Joe; All Along the Watchtower, Angel … I also liked this fusion of blues & rock from Jimi:

      And the mind-moment thingy! The only street parking I could find was around the corner @ some big looking church I’d never noticed before! Didn’t pay attention until I came back to my car. I’ve never seen so many beautifully dressed folks (kids included) coming out of that church. Absolutely gorgeous African outfits, & those exquisite head wraps. And pride in their heritage! Wot! I was in awe! I so wanted to grab my cellphone & snap pics, but it felt so intrusive. So that magnificent has to join kazillion pics in my mind. 😎

    I mentioned the other day about how precise and informative Jim Wright is, as well as being articulate and uses the language well, what he writes is very helpful, at least to me, for understanding what is otherwise out of the reach of most ordinary folks.

    Anyway, I’ve caught up with his last 3 posts and recommend to anyone here who wants a bit more clarity, go ahead and read his essays, food for thought and fact-based

    You know where he is at stonekettledotcom

    REMARKS BY PRESIDENT BIDEN ON THE CONTINUED BATTLE FOR THE SOUL OF THE NATION

    SEPTEMBER 01, 2022

    Independence National Historical Park
    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    “We, the people, have burning inside each of us the flame of liberty that was lit here at Independence Hall — a flame that lit our way through abolition, the Civil War, Suffrage, the Great Depression, world wars, Civil Rights.”

    “But I’m an American President — not the President of red America or blue America, but of all America.

    And I believe it is my duty — my duty to level with you, to tell the truth no matter how difficult, no matter how painful.

    And here, in my view, is what is true: MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people.

    They refuse to accept the results of a free election. And they’re working right now, as I speak, in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine democracy itself.

    MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards — backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.

    They promote authoritarian leaders, and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country.

    They look at the mob that stormed the United States Capitol on January 6th — brutally attacking law enforcement — not as insurrectionists who placed a dagger to the throat of our democracy, but they look at them as patriots.

    And they see their MAGA failure to stop a peaceful transfer of power after the 2020 election as preparation for the 2022 and 2024 elections.

    They tried everything last time to nullify the votes of 81 million people. This time, they’re determined to succeed in thwarting the will of the people.

    That’s why respected conservatives, like Federal Circuit Court Judge Michael Luttig, has called Trump and the extreme MAGA Republicans, quote, a “clear and present danger” to our democracy.

    But while the threat to American democracy is real, I want to say as clearly as we can: We are not powerless in the face of these threats. We are not bystanders in this ongoing attack on democracy.

    There are far more Americans — far more Americans from every — from every background and belief who reject the extreme MAGA ideology than those that accept it. (Applause.)

    And, folks, it is within our power, it’s in our hands — yours and mine — to stop the assault on American democracy.

    I believe America is at an inflection point — one of those moments that determine the shape of everything that’s to come after.”

    Michael Skolnik:
    “like what POTUS is doing. Speak the truth, unapologetically.
    That is what has made Joe Biden special throughout his political career. When he speaks from his heart, he is at his best. Never has been afraid to call out the bullshit. And tonight he is doing just that. Respect.”

  28. September 2, 2022 at 12:43 pm

    …. following the speech, Beschloss,
    who met with Biden in a White House meeting with historians last month, compared America nowadays as being in “1860” and “1940.” (speaking to Chris Hayes)

    Presidential Historian Michael Beschloss:
    “Here is a case, what we talked about was, just as you just mentioned, Chris, 1860. Someone who is in a historian like you, you know all this. 1860 this country was in big jeopardy. It was splitting apart. House divided. Slavery or non-slavery. And [Abraham] Lincoln cast the election of 1860 by saying the House can’t stand, half-labor, half-free, we’ve gotta choose.

    1940 when Franklin Roosevelt was running for a third term, just as you just mentioned, Roosevelt didn’t say the paramount issue this year is the minimum wage, although that was pretty important, or, you know, whether Texans get an oil depletion allowance or something like this. He said look, these are all important, but what is really at stake at this moment is whether our children are going to get to live in an American democracy, especially with Hitler and the fascists looming in Europe and marching.

    So I said, and the others said I’m happy to be transparent about it to President Biden in the Map Room. This is like 1860. This is like 1940. You know, you have to talk about the large issue in the room, and just as Lincoln gave the ‘House Divided’ speech, just as Roosevelt gave a speech on the State of the Union about the four freedoms, as you well know, 1941, here is the time when President Biden has chosen. And by the way, we didn’t help him write this speech. I don’t give political vies nor did any of the rest of us.

    Good thing, it would be pretty sad, because we’re not afraid to do that. But the point is that he realized that this is an historic moment. What you heard, I think, comes out of that.”

    NASA Scientists Help Probe Dark Energy by Testing Gravity

    “Could one of the biggest puzzles in astrophysics be solved by reworking Albert Einstein’s theory of gravity? A new study co-authored by NASA scientists says not yet.

    The universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, and scientists don’t know why.
    This phenomenon seems to contradict everything researchers understand about gravity’s effect on the cosmos: It’s as if you threw an apple in the air and it continued upward, faster and faster.

    The cause of the acceleration, dubbed dark energy, remains a mystery.

    A new study from the international Dark Energy Survey, using the Victor M. Blanco 4-meter Telescope in Chile, marks the latest effort to determine whether this is all simply a misunderstanding: that expectations for how gravity works at the scale of the entire universe are flawed or incomplete. This potential misunderstanding might help scientists explain dark energy. But the study – one of the most precise tests yet of Albert Einstein’s theory of gravity at cosmic scales – finds that the current understanding still appears to be correct.

    The results, authored by a group of scientists that includes some from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, were presented Wednesday, Aug. 23, at the International Conference on Particle Physics and Cosmology (COSMO’22) in Rio de Janeiro. The work helps set the stage for two upcoming space telescopes that will probe our understanding of gravity with even higher precision than the new study and perhaps finally solve the mystery.

    More than a century ago, Albert Einstein developed his Theory of General Relativity to describe gravity, and so far it has accurately predicted everything from the orbit of Mercury to the existence of black holes. But if this theory can’t explain dark energy, some scientists have argued, then maybe they need to modify some of its equations or add new components.”

    The Democratic mayor also signed an executive order formally apologizing on behalf of Rhode Island’s capital city for its role in slavery, urban renewal and other racist and discriminatory practices. The spending proposal now goes to the city council for approval.”
