Twin Towers II

The House Select Committee on Benghazi will begin in earnest after the November Elections to “find the truth” behind the act of terror that led to the death of four U.S. Department of State personnel. More than a decade later I wonder when the GOP (and the Democrats for that matter) will ask: “What if the Bush White House had taken the CIA briefings seriously?”

In a re-election run in 2020, the novelty of being elected the first woman President will be gone, Hillary will be running on her politics and record then.

The stakes with stopping carbon dioxide buildup are huge. The value of the un-drilled oil and methane and coal is in the trillions and if you think the oil and gas companies are going to write off those investments without a huge fight, I have a bridge to sell you.

Goodell stated, “These women are trying to corner me in a tight space, deliver a knockout blow to my head then drag me out of the NFL. It’s an outrage! I’m not resigning because their claims aren’t true, I don’t tolerate violence against women…really wish I could pound that into their heads.”

Terrorist organizations want the U.S. to be so frightened by them that the US elevates them by declaring war on them. Would the US declare war on an entity that wasn’t challenging and threatening to the most powerful military nation in the world?

Education-is-the-Key

Education is a strange thing. It is not just putting together a few facts, learning the principles of mathematic equations or just simple math, stringing together a bit of his story and our story, something that often can’t be verified or understood but just taken for granted, dabbling in the sciences etc.

market basket strong

As a lifelong MA resident, I was mightily impacted by the recent battle over control of the revered Market Basket grocery chain. First thing this morning I went into my local Market Basket.

Self-proclaimed critics attempted to tie Michael Brown to the Gangsta Life of the rap songs and violence, concluding that a kid with no criminal record was no better than a thug. Perhaps these critics have forgotten about the past, when young children idolized the pirates of the 1700s, the cowboys of the 1800s Old West, and the gangsters, bank robbers and killers of the early 1900s for their criminal exploits.
