Please Take Advantage Of My Nostalgic Moment

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Unless the sight of serious algebra
causes serious suicidal thoughts
...
...
  
I used to call this a JBL equation
That is,
you can solve this 
Just By Looking


 The equation has two of everything:

15 appears twice
X appears twice

There are two Plus Signs 
and there are two
square root thingies

The question is
SOLVE FOR  X

Three simple steps
is all it takes.

 ❶ Subtract 1 from 15   [=14]

❷ Take half   [=7] 

❸ Multiply it by itself [= 49]
    
Therefore
X = 49

...
...


IF
all things were the same
but the number = 11
[instead of 15]
THEN
11 ⇛ 10 ⇛ 5 ⇛ 25

...
...

The only requirement
for this "simple" solution
is that the number 
in the equation
is not a multiple of 2

Black Music

________________________________________________________________________________________________





I would never have believed
anyone who told me that
Someday, you will listen
to music in alphabetical order



But that is what I do



If asked five times,
Which of these 
is your favorite song
I could sincerely give
five different answers


However, were I required—at gunpoint—to single out
one track to share with anyone not named Paul Oliverio,
it would be  Joyce Green's BLACK CADILLAC

Why The GOP Does Not Have GOD On Their Side

________________________________________________________________________________________________


Just six months ago, it looked like
the Republican Party was about to go
on a legislative blitzkrieg, shredding law
after law passed by the Obama administration...
The GOP hadn't held total power in American politics
since 2006, and the party had become much more
conservative in the interim.

And instead of George W. Bush...
the new Congress would work
with a sub-literate tabula rasa named Donald Trump,
a man who could probably be persuaded
to inject himself with experimental medication
if an important-seeming person
whispered "do it" in his ear.

But a funny thing happened
on the way to libertarian utopia.
