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.
Those that would seek to dominate and control us all, love nothing better than to see us at each other’s throats. Our disharmony allows them to grasp everything they want without our notice.

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. The shelves are empty, they were stocking dry foods. The produce section is bare. There were three steaks in the case.
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.
In our constant efforts to improve and update the PlanetPOV site, we are trying out a new chat system which we debuted on last week’s Vox Populi. We are opening it for full time use to the membership this week for all to give it a test drive and help us identify the issues that come up.
Some studies have been done to determine the effectiveness of body cameras worn by police officers. Effects on police/community relations and the numbers of complaints by citizens, of excessive force used by police officers were two key factors in these studies.
After the past few weeks of doom and gloom and the usual talking heads nonsense, my brain feels a little scrambled. I figured we should just mix it up good this weekend.

Can we as citizens of this nation have an influence on policies that could help to alleviate some of the pain/strife that we see in this nation? Should we be trying to make this country/this world a better place or should we just be spectators?
“These ISIS guys, they won’t be armed, right? I mean, we’re seasoned Ferguson cops, we’re used to dealing harshly with groups of unarmed enemies, we’re great at that.”
How to stop ISIS, a group too hardline even for al-Qaida, in control of $3 Billion, 30,000 men and a lot of captured U.S. arms, with minds and hearts focused on the creation of a Sunni Fundamentalist Caliphate, is emerging as a most important topic among world leaders.
