“Look, I’m not a scientist so I can’t say one way or the other if the climate is changing, I think the jury is still out on that,” President Koch III expressed as he christened the new impervious dome constructed around the White House in a high security ceremony.
Selma received nearly universal acclaim from film critics. It got tons of publicity. So where are the crowds? Well, I live in very conservative Missouri in an area where there are few blacks but “12 Years a Slave” did rather well here. It was made for $22 million and made $188 million. So???
If there were really such a thing as “justice” the bush administration would be in prison, the cop who killed Mike Brown would also be in prison, and Boehner and his bretheren would NOT be in their lofty positions. ISIS would not have a hold on any […]
President Obama will make his 2015 State of the Union speech tonight at 6:00pm PST and PlanetPOV will be hosting a Live Chat that will run simultaneously with his speech and the (now) three Republican rebuttals (known in some circles now as The Whiners Circle).
In a hot auditorium in Charleston, SC on July 30, 1977, I heard Dr. Martin Luther King declare: “I’m not gonna say, ‘Burn baby burn’!” I’m gonna say “Build baby build!”
The Islamic Testimony Means Something Quite Different for Modernists versus Jihadist; and that could make all the difference.
With all of the hoopla surrounding the films screened in the Obama White House, I got curious about what the past presidents watched. What follows is by no means complete, but an interesting bit of history.

May the world experience PEACE!
May all people think about others and help those in need. I wish for love and peace to out pace and overrun war and discourse. I wish for cures for cancer and all the rest of deseases. Equality for women, and all minorities. That all people care about and love one another.The end of GREED!
Almost in parallel with Climate Change, the climate of politics and world events seems to be intensified by human events, we see extremes happening more often and more swiftly than in previous years.
It’s that time of year when magical wishes are in the air and people believe that fantasies can come true…no, it’s not Rand Paul’s Presidential campaign launch, it’s Christmas!
Instead of seeing a psychotic cop-killer for what he was, some NYPD officers, their police union and prominent Republicans are exploiting this tragedy to validate the righteousness of their racism.
Extremists of any religion are the downfall of their religion. Those extremists hurt people of their religion and others as well. For proof, you need look no further than the Muslim extremists killing indiscriminately which gives Islam a black eye or worse. Of course Christianity has those vile “Westboro Baptist” extremists. They don’t like anyone. Seem to hate other religions and soldiers and just about everyone. There are examples of extremists in most all religions.
Cuba and the US have had a long history of adversarial relations. Yet we have diplomatic relations with Vietnam. Cuba didn’t kill 50,000 Americans, but we have ostracized Cuba! Why? Why have we not done what President Obama has just done long ago?
In the end, no one can maintain their power because of the inverse property of power, every action creates an equal and opposite reaction.
