    Remembering Selma - The Civil

    I went to a church service last night on the anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March at a small AME congregation. Mostly black, mostly middle class farmers. The minister, part time, as he is a farmer too, spoke passionately of the zeal of those protestors who stood up against injustice and of the cause that they lifted up. BUT, he also challenged the congregation to do more than just recall….

    Netanyahu's Alternative to Ave

    According to Netanyahu, what’s best for “all of us”, is to not try to negotiate with Iran to stop them developing a nuclear weapon. So if they need to be stopped…and negotiating is foolish, what one path is left to stop them? War. And that’s all that Netanyahu really wants.

Racism blinds those who practice it. Republicans continue to chase after it with a mindless enthusiasm, not recognizing that it is actually a lemming leading them right off the edge of a political cliff.

Why not ship the oil to the nearest refinery and distribute it from there? We don’t need to put a pipeline across one of our biggest aquifers. Both North and South Dakota have refineries.

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.

As a 21st Century Will Rogers, Stewart has spoken truth to those in power with an astoundingly consistent and brilliant wit and much to his own surprise, became the primary source of news for a generation.

marriage equality

Roy Moore’s resemblance to George Wallace is very striking. Both justified their hateful prejudices as moral and democratic imperatives, warned of terrible consequences from not sustaining their bigotry and both made sweeping, dictatorial-styled edicts.

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.

heart sick

In a week when Republicans campaign for the good old days of measles epidemics and Black Plague (“We should have the freedom to choose whether or not we become lepers!”), this week’s music thread is totally sick…well…about feeling sick or feeling good. So share your songs about being sick in […]
