A tiny bit of sanity out of the Seattle City Clowncil.

I'm surprised.  Rent control (i.e. state creeping-appropriation of landlord's property) is pretty mainstream stuff for the Progs, with a lot of history.

Boston Mayor Bans Fossil Fuels in Construction of New City-Owned Buildings

I guess Boston is not getting any new city buildings.

What about concrete Mayor? That a major source of carbon....

I expected, "We'll do rent control right this time!"

For the Left, everything always has to be about race.  Always.

I read today that Biden (well, the bureaucrats who run everything) are dumping a whole pile of regulations, one of which would ban the sale of all new gasoline-engine cars by 2032. One of several end runs around Congress in their attempt to gain complete control over the economy and force us into "15 minute" cities where you can only buy what they permit you to, so long as they don't cancel your plastic when your Social Credit score drops too low.

Think we could get 35 States to dissolve the Federal Government?

As I've said before.... 5000 new power plants will be required in 9 years nationwide to meet the EV mandate.

They already talk about Energy Equity won't that be fun!

It occurs to me that if anyone ever makes a musical version of "The Epic of Gilgamesh", it should include a duet between Gilgamesh and Enkidu called "Sumer Lovin'".

Antarctic pyramid-shaped structure under ice sheets sparks curiosity

Anyone who wants to explore the area had better watch out for shoggoths.

It is as likely as some of the stories, like:

UFOs once took control of Russian ICBMs, nearly caused WW3 - testimony

More likely a glitch in the Roosky systems. "No, it was aliens! Not our poor vodka-soaked work!"
