This time zone change will mean that when it is 8:00 pm CST in the rest of the state, it will be 1817 in the most conservative parts of the state.

womens march

There were so many fantastic signs in The Women’s March made but one that seemed most inspirational and reflective of the empowerment that this movement inspires said, “Thanks President Obama, we’ve got this!”

I for one am anxious for the unavoidable presidency of Donald Trump to begin ASAP so it can be derailed and ended ASAP.

This past Friday, the United States outdid itself. Reactions varied as Justice Kennedy delivered the finishing touches to the end of civilization.

Scalia explained, “History now poses a threat to the white male conservative Christian’s life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. That being the case, this court has no other choice but to order history to cease and desist.

IRA Conducts Daring Air Raid

I used to be a member of the Irish Aero Club, which operated out of Dublin Airport for many years. One day, in the early 1970’s in the middle of the ‘Troubles”, I was filing a flight plan for a local trip, when someone I had never met before came into the Club to retrieve his Cessna which had been serviced.

Texas Straightjacket

These Home-On-De-Ranged Texans believe chem trails are proof that the government is chemically mind controlling its own people, President Obama is a stealth Kenyan, Muslim, Socialist terrorist who wants to cut off their heads in the streets and every non-Texan is coming to take their guns away. These misfits from the Loon Star State thrive on paranoia.

Sure, people get away with lots of terrible things until they don’t. And Mike Pence found that out to his utter shock. “Really? Americans don’t like it when you make it legal to be bigoted as long as you hide behind ‘religious beliefs’? Who woulda thunk that?”

GOP Sedition

This is a chilling event because these Republicans have demonstrated that they are willing do anything to obtain and to maintain power including undermining our constitutionally elected government as well as jeopardizing our international standing and national security.

Unfortunately, since religion is such a minefield for politicians, Americans have become accustomed to disassociating religious extremists from their religion so as not to offend mainstream religious voters.

People dressed in military uniforms attend a ceremony to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, in Old Bethpage, New York

Guys in Vietnam (I talk from experience about Nam) saw buddies wounded or killed. Many of us helped get them on choppers to get medical help. Most of us had to shoot enemy soldiers. Believe me that is not easy for some of us. I know it haunts me. It goes against human nature to kill other human beings. Oh, there are some people who like killing, no doubt. But I think most folks do not enjoy taking life from another human.

WH Screening Room

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.

Cuba-vs-US

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?

black lives matter march NYC

In the end, no one can maintain their power because of the inverse property of power, every action creates an equal and opposite reaction. And that is our eternal job as the majority of human beings on this planet, to be that equal and opposite reaction to those who accumulate power and use it to gratify themselves at the expense of the lives and well being of others.

congress poll 2014

Republicans have every right to claim that the election was a statement of support for them and a rejection of Obama…the Supreme Court has already ruled that lying is protected under the 1st Amendment and all that Republicans are trying to do is strengthen the 1st Amendment.
