Politics – “A strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles. The conduct of public affairs for private advantage.” – Ambrose Bierce

Joseph Lieberman and two other senators who plan to give the US President emergency Internet authority, otherwise know as the “Internet KILL Switch” are protesting comparisons to Iran, China, Egypt, and Syria cutting off their citizens access to the Internet. Critics say that this will put the US in the same group – “the Coalition for Internet Censorship”. (more…)
The one year anniversary of the Afghanistan Shi’ite Personal Status Law passed without even a whisper from the U.S. media. Apparently, daily stories of oiled-soiled pelicans are vastly more important and newsworthy to CNN and FOX, as well for the alphabet soup of “news” of organizations vying for the attention of the coveted U.S. population.

In yet another setback for President Obama and the majority Democrats in Congress, the 20 term congressman from Harlem New York says he will step down as chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee. (more…)
Can you choose your color today, or must others still do that for you? Can anyone of us with mixed heritage be predominantly called by just one name? More importantly, what does that say about the heritage you choose (or is chosen for you), and the heritage not chosen? It appears to me that regardless of your standing in society, regardless of your accomplishments or natural talents, you still must choose a color – or one will be chosen for you. (more…)
Fox News reports: CNN video cuts?
Listen, I have always found it ludicrous that we are the only beings in the vast space of whatever we want to call it, the universe, the galactic collection of galaxies, etc.
Really, if we are the only race here, and ha, we don’t even recognize ourselves as a whole race, but fighting, disparate, screeching wolves in the night, then, isn’t that a sad state of affairs for the rest of the dark matter hanging out there?
I’m no scientist, in case you didn’t catch on yet, but what I know, or SUSPECT, is that it cannot be true.
Here are some facts hard to dispute about humans:
1. we have enslaved our brothers and sisters
2. we continue to enslave our brothers and sisters
3. we believe one life is greater than another and excuse ourselves in the name of religion, security, politics, medical protocol, to sacrifice others
4. I’m sorry, I can’t continue, I suspect I’m on a rant.
Just tell me, in lots or little words, why is it that the idea of other life forms is something we don’t accept as probably more true than not?
I write with mixed emotions.
I personally am ecstatic with America and the world’s choice for Obama.
Yes, we have woken up from this deep sleep.
Yet, in many states in this country, we have been awake and still asleep, voting to ban “gay” marriage. What is “gay” marriage?
Marriage is a willing union of hearts. It must not be defined by gender or sexual orientation.
I am sorry, I cannot write more as I am deeply saddened by this, this seemingly ignorant action on the behalf of human beings in 2008.
“Hope” is a universal word. It is not intended and not defined for the few. How dare we, how dare we, crush good people’s dreams? Is it easier to do so when it is not black and white? Is it easier to do so when it is approved unions vs. those that are not?
By whose laws do we take such actions to deprive our brothers and sisters of what we so willingly take as ours?
Raise Up! Vote to ban hetersexual marriage, let’s see what kind of reaction that gets.
Again, I’m sorry, but this is a sad, sad state of affairs that we would, as enlightened human beings, vote down love.
