In February, Politics Plus was little changed from January.  We decreased in every category, but only because the month is three days shorter.

Here is our latest summary:

This February was a significant improvement over last.

Here is our latest demographic data from Quantcast:

QUS2-2015

They miss a ton of raw data, but among those they can identify they are a valuable source of information.  We are mostly older, well educated, poor, and politically active. 

Here is our latest ClustrMap:

CMap2-2015

ClustrMap misses a lot of, because many visits can’t be easily traced to a location.  It shows only the visits from March 2 to January 13, when it was last updated.  Therefore it is unchanged from last month.

Here are our top five articles:

Jane Smiley: Capitalist Pigs 1/17/2010 1,651
Warren on Vaccines 2/13/2015 484
Texas Is Premeditating Murder 11/25/2014 363
Good News from the FCC 2/5/2015 309
The Impasse Is No Mystery 2/11/2015 301

The count represents only the people who followed an external link to that specific article.  I’m pleased to see three  from February.

Here are our top non-blog/news referrers:

Care2 2,103
Google 1,695
Stumbleupon 1,138

Two are down.  Stumbleupon is up.

Normally I have included fifteen here, but these seven are the only ones with two or more referrals.  That’s down three from last month.  Putting their links here increases the ratings of their sites, so this “linkey love” is our thank you for their support.

Here are our top commentators.  As the resident Big Mouth, I don’t count.  Those who leave their URLs in their comment headers, also get “linkey-love” here.

There are over 15, because of a tie.  People who submit articles to Care2 can use their submitted news link from there.

We have 254,594 links on other websites.

As of Midnight on March 1, we have 5,400 articles and 61,387 comments.

Kudos to Lynn for posting the 61,000th comment.

As the New Year continues to unfold, it’s crystal clear that the Republican Party is too incompetent to govern, even on those rare occasions, when they appear to want to do so. In addition, they have no shortage of greed, lies, and hate.  They are getting away with it, because the habitat of most Americans is intersection of political ignorance and apathy, and most news media reinforce both.  We still have our work cut out for us.

Thank you for all that you do, here and elsewhere.  You are what makes this site happen!!

Day 93.  I slept in, which is good.  I needed it.  This afternoon my building is having a community meeting in which management will be going over the steps they are going to start talking to help us recycle and lower our carbon footprint.  While that may see like a pain in the ass, I’m glad they care.  You folks back east had betted get ready for some nasty weather.  Although it has been unseasonably warm here, it’s been raining nonstop for over a day and is forecast to continue for two – three more.  When that mixes from cold air out of Canada, watch out!!

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today;s took me 2:59 (average 4:14).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Short Takes:

From Daily Kos: Florida Attorney Steve Medina has been working on a case, pro bono, to expose the environmental corruption which has been taking place in Tallahassee and Putnam County, Florida.

Tons of toxic waste is being dumped into St. Johns River, daily, by the Koch Brothers company, Georgia-Pacific. Aspects of the deal allowing Georgia Pacific to massively assault the environment, were misleading, sometimes illegal, and unbeknownst to the local citizens. Florida Governor Rick Scott and former Governor (and Republican presidential hopeful), Jeb Bush, are also involved.

Click through for the dirty details. Those four are peas in a pod.

From Reuters: A senior Israeli official suggested on Friday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had been misled into thinking an invitation to address the U.S. Congress on Iran next month was fully supported by the Democrats.

Netanyahu was invited by the Republican speaker of the house, John Boehner, to address Congress on March 3, an invitation Boehner originally described as bipartisan.

The move angered the White House, which is upset about the event coming two weeks before Israeli elections and the fact that Netanyahu, who has a testy relationship with President Obama, is expected to be critical of U.S. policy on Iran.

I don’t doubt that Agent Orange lied. After all, his mouth was open, and there was no inflow of whiskey. However, if Butcher Ben were truly concerned, he would cancel the trip. He says he has no such plans.

From Right Wing Watch: Creationist leader Ken Ham is incensed that the state of Kentucky is supposedly abridging his organization’s “fundamental rights” by declining to provide around $18 million in tax incentives to his Noah’s Ark theme park. The park is a planned addition to Ham’s Creation Museum and is intended to be, according to Ham, “one of the greatest evangelist outreaches of our day.”

Since Ham’s group plans to discriminate on the basis of religion in its hiring practices, it is no surprise that it won’t get public funds. But Ham claims that he has a “right” to receive taxpayer money and has filed a lawsuit [pseudo-Christians delinked] against Kentucky, insisting that his organization, Answers in Genesis, is the real victim of discrimination.

He took his case to “Washington Watch” [pseudo-Christians delinked] yesterday, where he told host Tony Perkins that Kentucky’s decision somehow violates his organization’s right to the freedom of speech: “Anyone who wants to have freedom of speech in this nation, freedom of religion, free exercise of religion, needs to stand with us as we do this because that is what we are standing for.”

In short this Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christian is saying that failure to fund his attempt to proselytize others in a manner that violates the US Constitution violates his freedom of speech and freedom of religion. He is free to spread the Republican gospel of greed, lies and hate to his heart’s content, and I defend his right to do so. But, if government pays for it, that violates our rights.

There are over 15, because of a tie.  Patty, if your going to call Facebook your home page, may I suggest using the link that points to your page there instead of their main URL.  Also, people who submit articles to Care2 can use their submitted news link from there.

We have 362,901 links on other websites.

As of Midnight on February 1, we have 5,346 articles and 60,295 comments.

Kudos to SoINeedAName for posting the 60,000th comment.  His Politics Plus coffee mug for posting an even multiple of 10,000 should be delivered to him tomorrow.  We hope he will send a picture of him using it, that I can post here.  We’re still waiting for the mug recipient for the 50,000th send me her promised picture.  I just hope the mug wasn’t trampled underfoot. ;-)

As the New Year begins to unfold, it’s already clear that the Republican Party have no interest in governing responsibly, and they are not cutting back on their hateful schemes, each one more vicious than the last.  They are getting away with it, because the habitat of most Americans is intersection of political ignorance and apathy.  We have our work cut out for us.

Thank you for all that you do, here and elsewhere.

In December, Politics Plus was little changed from November.  At the suggestion of Gene from Care2, I considered returning to graphics from AWSTATS.  Although AWSTATs tends to miss a lot of valid traffic, while trying to filter out bots, crawlers, spammers and hackers, it has other features that make it worth using.  The graphs are easier to understand, and it has the ability to isolate time periods to compare, as I do below.

Our Technorati rating no longer exists, because Technorati no longer exists as a blog rating entity.    They have left a vacuum in blog authority rating.  If you learn of someone filling that need before I do, please let me know.  I have registered with Quantcast.  They miss a ton of raw data, but among those they can identify they will be a valuable source of information.  I learned that hard way that I have to pull the data off before a new month starts.  However I did learn that we are mostly older, well educated, poor, and politically active.  That remains the same for December.  I forgot to get the data off on time.

A new year is upon us.  We know we will be facing major challenges.  Exactly what they will be remains unclear, as we need to see exactly what slithers out of the Republican Party’s bag of villainous behavior.  Whatever it takes, we’ll do it together!

Thank you for all that you do.

Stats11-2014

In the monthly totals, a Site is any website from which someone accessed our server, a Hit is every access attempt to our server, and a File is every access attempt to our server that returned data.  The difference between Hits and Files is from access attempts that were sent in error or damaged in transit and failed attempts by hackers, spammers, phishers, and Republicans to access the back end and take control of the site.  Any questions?

Well, the elections are past.  We did not get out the vote.  That is not your fault.  Instead of running as Democrats, far too many of our candidates who had won in conservative areas, ran away from our party and lost.  Republican candidates were bold with their lies.  Our candidates whispered our truths, if they repeated them at all.  Campaign 2016 is now.  It’s time to stuff party offices with progressives and support progressives in primaries for every position from dog catcher up.  God willing, I shall be here to find you all the tools I can. 

Thank you for all that you do.  Onward!

The 2014 elections are two days away.  If Republicans take the Senate we will have two years of even worse gridlock, because they will continue to sabotage America, hoping to present themselves as saviors in 2016.  We have the votes to stop them, if people actually vote.

Thank you for all you have done to…

Get Out the VOTE!!!

Here is our latest Clustrmap:

Map9-2014

ClusterMaps misses a lot of, because many visits can’t be easily traced to a location.  It shows only the visits from March 2 to September 6, when it was last updated.  Therefore the map is unchanged from last month.

Here are our top five articles:

A Republican Freedom 9/24/2013 1,095
Jane Smiley: Capitalist Pigs 1/17/2010 717
How Republicans Support Our Troops 5/31/2011 337
A Republican Staffer Tells the Truth! 9/5/2011 308
Last Week’s Republican Lunacies 6/9/2014 251

Several years are represented here, but at least one article from last month should have made the list.

Here are our top non-blog/news referrers:

Google 2,209
Care2 2,186
Stumbleupon 286
Microsoft Bing 108

All are down.

Normally I include 15 here, but these are the only ones with two or more referrals.  Never before have there been so few.  Putting their links here increases the ratings of their sites, so this “linkey love” is our thank you for their support.

Here are our top commentators.  As the resident Big Mouth, I don’t count.  Those who leave their URLs in their comment headers, also get “linkey-love” here.

There are usually only 15, but it was so slow that everyone with only two comments was tied for 13th place.

We have 380,185 links on other websites.

Our Technorati rating no longer exists, because Technorati no longer exists as a blog rating entity.    They have left a vacuum in blog authority rating.  If you learn of someone filling that need before I do, please let me know.

As of Midnight, October 1, we have 51281 articles and 56,750 comments.

I recommend using your own avatar. Go to Gravatar.  Sign up using the email address you use to post comments here and upload the image you want to use as your avatar.  Whenever you comment under that email address here or on any WordPress blog (several others too), that image will become your avatar.

Perhaps where I went wrong is that I stopped promoting the blog on other sites so I could dedicate more time to Care2.  My hope was that Care2 activists would promote the site to make up the difference.  It worked for a while, but no more.  I will have to go back to doing it myself.

The 2014 elections are only five weeks.  If they take the Senate we will have two years of even worse gridlock, because they will continue to sabotage America, hoping to pre3sent themselves as saviors in 2016.  We have the votes to stop them, if they actually vote.

Please get out the vote!

Thank you for everything that you do.
