Earth Day 2017 will see another large-scale protest against US President Trump. After the huge success of the Women's March, it is now the [fake] scientists' turn to voice anger and dissatisfaction with new policies.HUGE SUCCESS? For a protest, huge success means that the government surrenders to the demons. Trump is not the usual Repooflican fagass eunuch. He doesn't wilt and faint when demons attack. He just keeps doing the right thing as he sees it. Note that pro-life Jeff Sessions was approved by the Upper Nuthouse AFTER the huge success, and Gorsuch was appointed AFTER the huge success. Trump isn't a natural pro-lifer by any means. He's taking the side for political advantage. He has chosen NOT to take the moral side on LGBTQQ2ABCDEFGHIJKLMONPETH4ITAGERW issues, and in that case he's NOT opportunistic. These two views don't fit a consistent partisan agenda, but his promises were clear on both, and he's fulfilling his promises on both. He's delivering on his contract. WYSIWYG. No bait-n-switch.

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
