The Watering Hole, Tuesday November 10, 2015 – Environmental News and Food Politics

“Ocean acidification may well be helping invasive species of algae, jellyfish, crabs and shellfish to move to new areas of the planet with damaging consequences, according to the findings of a new report.

Slimy, jelly-like creatures are far more tolerant of rising carbon dioxide levels than those with hard parts like corals, since exposed shells and skeletons simply dissolve away as CO2 levels rise.”

Read the rest here: The Jellyfish are coming. Actually, they seem to be already here.

  1. Oh Cheezits on a cracker, Trump calls for a boycott over the red Starbucks cups.

    At this point I’m angry about me being angry about people who are angry about stupid shit like this. And that makes me angry just thinking about it.

  2. Jeb “Do you think they know I’m a” BUSH? – would kill baby Hitler – follow up question that was not asked – but would you abort him in the first or second trimester?

    http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/nov/09/would-jeb-bush-kill-the-baby-adolf-hitler-given-the-chance-hell-yeah

    Just one quote from the comments:

    “Oh yeah, I’d kill a baby Bush – hell yeah, gotta step up”

    Moral imbeciles and fascists – on stage tonight for your voting pleasure.

    • A little positive feedback and reinforcement on his artwork, and Hitler would have been just another hipster Kraut impressionist.

      • It was a stupid question, but the stupidity of the answer …… Jeb is a fuckwit. Molly Ivins thought Shrub was the less vicious and vindictive of the two Brothers – makes you wonder. Just ask Michael Schiavo.

      • That would have been a better answer actually. Jeb should buy a few of the little bastard’s paintings – Hitler’s, not his brother’s

    • Having watched Rachel’s Friday (3 separate) high quality interviews of Clinton, Sanders, and O’Malley, I have to wonder if tonight’s clown car debacle will have an eventual impact on the whole “debate” scenario. And if R-debates should become R-interviews, would anything really change that much, or is Civility simply an intellectual hallmark not available in today’s wingnuts?

  3. Brother Tyson has the werd!

  4. Here’s a peek at the Kevin Swanson anti-gay parade in Iowa last weekend.

    These 3 GOP Candidates Can Never Be President

    Swanson is clearly fucking crazy; the fact that pHuckabee, Cruz, and Jindal were participants sums them up as well.

    If you can stream in Rachel from last night, she presented a good chunk of Swanson’s rant. I’ve never seen such a nutcase as him. He alone is enough to totally dismiss any Republican that might even claim to know the guy, much less participate in his forum.

  5. After crunching the numbers; the number is zero. That is the number of bills introduced by Democrats that have made it out of committee, much less gone on to an up or down vote on the House floor, since the GOoPers took back the House.

    • I didn’t know that. I suspected as much. I am not surprised. Fascists will do/say anything when their goal is full control.

      “If we pursue this way, if we are decent, industrious, and honest, if we so loyally and truly fulfill our duty, then it is my conviction that in the future as in the past the Lord God will always help us.” ~ Adolf Hitler, at the Harvest Thanksgiving Festival on the Buckeburg held on 3 Oct. 1937

    • “It makes no difference whatever whether they laugh at us or revile us, whether they represent us as clowns or criminals; the main thing is that they mention us, that they concern themselves with us again and again, and that we gradually in the eyes of the workers themselves appear to be the only power that anyone reckons with at the moment. …” ~Adolf Hitler

  6. Patton Oswalt @pattonoswalt
    Not raising the minimum wage gets a round of applause. This is literally the Legion of Doom swamp base. #GOPDebate

  7. Maria Bartiromo’s hair just can’t compete with Megyn Kelly’s.

    Nothing else matters in these debates.

  8. 1 in 4 are in poverty? Really, Jeb!? You fucktwit asshats. You can’t claim poverty after just refusing to raise the minimum wage.

    • Dumpy needs to live on the Federal minimum wage.
      (take away all other means of income from the warty rock)

  9. Ben Carson doesn’t like being lied about. I bet he can’t wait to find the motherfu*ker who spread that rumor about him stabbing someone.

  10. Why exactly are people supposed to be angry about the damned Starbuck’s cup?
    I have no comment on the R’s and their debate. I can’t believe it’s not some poorly acted parody of the political process.

    • There’s no telling with that bunch of pseudo-Christians. I’m certain their Christ/God doesn’t give a fig.

      • But they’re just red. I know that any deity that was concerned as to how we celebrated Christmas would have struck us all dead after the first innocent person was trampled in a pre-holiday stampede to purchase a cheep crappy Chinese TV, but how in the hell can anyone be outraged at a plain red cup?
