Oct 20, 2020 - Happy 10-20-2020!
For the reason that it reminds me the US should be on the metric system, which it would be if Raygun had not been elected! President Carter was the last truly intelligent President and had we not rejected him because Iranians made bad choices, we would NOT be facing the Crisis of Climate change as disastrously as we are today! This only emphasizes again that our choices day by day DO matter! VOTE! VOTE VOTE VOTE ! I may be a glass half empty person but I still remain hopeful! ____ And then I read the following: POLITICO Nightly logo BY...Jump to full entry
Sep 15, 2020 - Getting Colder?
We are migratory animals by nature and for survival! ____ It seems to me anyone under 40 years of age will suffer the most impact, much like we are witnessing with the migrations of peoples trying to escape the terror in their 'native' lands due to war, corruption, religious persecution, dictatorship, and/or the general collapse of economies due to these factors and now the pandemic. Whatever measure of recovery will be short lived and governing will become increasingly difficult even for autocratic regimes. I feel somewhat guilty in that...Jump to full entry
Sep 12, 2020 - Buffalo Springfield
There's something happening here What it is ain't exactly clear There's a man with a gun over there Telling me I got to beware I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound Everybody look what's going down There's battle lines being drawn Nobody's right if everybody's wrong Young people speaking their minds Getting so much resistance from behind It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound Everybody look what's going down What a field-day for the heat A thousand people in the street Singing songs and carrying signs Mostly...Jump to full entry
Once again, corporate greed shows that Citizens United was a wrongful ruling. Corporations are NOT people! Their sole purpose is to increase profits. ___ This was an interview in 2016 but with the events in present day California, the Climate Crisis might just wake up some who have laughed off the pandemic as a hoax as well! We have at most 10 years left! —— From DNRC report in January 2019: By breaking climate change down into its component geophysical symptoms, the memo makes a strong case for treating it as a threat multiplier, with the...Jump to full entry

Animal Populations Fell by 68% in 50 Years and It’s Getting Worse The world is losing its mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish, and with them, the security of ecosystems that have supported humanity since it first emerged. That’s the conclusion of the Living Planet Report 2020, a biannual assessment by World Wildlife Fund and the Zoological Society of London, which records the decline in vertebrate life. This year’s report, released Wednesday, shows that these animal communities shrunk on average 68% between 1970 and 2016. Parts of...Jump to full entry
Sep 7, 2020 - Robert Frost
But over its terrible edge there had slipped A duke and full many a peasant. So the people said something would have to be done, But their projects did not at all tally; Some said, “Put a fence around the edge of the cliff,” Some, “An ambulance down in the valley.” But the cry for the ambulance carried the day, For it spread through the neighboring city; A fence may be useful or not, it is true, But each heart became brimful of pity For those who slipped over the dangerous cliff; And the dwellers in highway and alley Gave pounds or gave...Jump to full entry
Aug 26, 2020 - New Girl
I must say I am totally amazed by how quickly and completely changing from one channel of reality to another can make life so much more pleasant and enjoyable. We were watching the Republican convention and questioned our own sanity. Then we changed to watching the entire last season of New Girl and at the end, although sad, we realized that this group of people we have been enjoying for the past 2+ months had become part of our family! Our sanity returned and happiness once again entered our lives. These friends we now call family are...Jump to full entry
Aug 25, 2020 - Larry Kudlow - Who is he? An economic supporter of Trump...
larry kudlow wikipedia: Kudlow was a strong advocate of George W. Bush's substantial tax cuts, and argued that the tax cuts would lead to an economic boom of equal magnitude. After the implementation of the Bush tax cuts, Kudlow insisted year after year that the economy was in the middle of a "Bush boom", and chastised other commentators for failing to realize it. Kudlow firmly denied that the United States would enter a recession in 2007, or that it was in the midst of a recession in early to mid-2008. In December 2007, he wrote: "The...Jump to full entry
Aug 24, 2020 - HOSTAGES - Are we all now?
We’ve been to Turkey, Syria, Iran, and India where the hostages were captive in these countries. Never experienced the animosity or type of interactions that these people expressed. I would like to know what caused their arrests in the first place?! The whole ‘event’ staged with the President seemed very stilted and somehow dishonest in the way it was presented! No background presented as to why these people found themselves hostages? Was it a political ploy by countries in retaliation or due to actions taken by the hostages themselves? The...Jump to full entry
