Kalima, yesterday the Burlington electric company said that Russia hacked it. Trying to cut power to people in the winter is one idea they seemed to have. Our Rep. and Senators spoke about it.



7 years, Kalima! Wow! Congrats. I have been around for some of them and have enjoyed the fruits of your labor. Many thanks for all that work you did and for the future work. Please take care and don’t overdo. Get plenty of rest.
Peace to you and yours.


Kalima, as today is Thanksgiving, one of the very meaningful things I’m giving thanks for today is the great fortune to have your presence and contributions here at The Planet. Year in and year out, Morning Blog has enlightened so many of us about the events and realities so many fellow human beings around the world are living. The perspective you offer through Morning Blog is unique, invaluable and so needed especially now!

7 years? Kind of hard to believe it’s been that long! Really! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the hard work you have and continue to invest into Morning Blog, all the conscience and principles you exemplify and the sense of global community Morning Blog expresses with all of The Planet.

Happy 7th Anniversary to you and Morning Blog!

Good day Kalima,

Thank you for your dedication to PlanetPOV and your loyalty to its vision and mission.

I regularly visit your Morning Blog to get a wider view of the world.

The U.S. media is so myopic that it takes extra effort to do as you have done for 7 years.

Thanks for providing MB as a valuable resource.

I agree with your thoughts about our President and I regularly find myself saying “this is the last time that he will….”. You might recall I worked for Barack’s campaign in 2007 and 2008 in five states. I became an ACA navigator and worked for his reelection. And I fought for the election of his endorsed successor, Hillary Clinton….I am deeply grieved at the election of this awful human being.

So, I thought I would share this with you…..

I listened as they called my President a Muslim.
I listened as they called him and his family a pack of monkeys.
I listened as they said he wasn’t born here.
I watched as they blocked every single path to progress that they could.
I saw the pictures of him as Hitler.
I watched them shut down the government and hurt the entire nation twice.
I watched them turn their backs on every opportunity to open worthwhile dialog.
I watched them say that they would not even listen to any choice for Supreme Court no matter who the nominee was.
I listened as they openly said that they will oppose him at every turn.
I watched as they did just that.
I listened.
I watched.
I paid attention.
Now, I’m being called on to be tolerant.
To move forward.
To denounce protesters.
To “Get over it.”
To accept this…
I will not.
I will do my part to make sure this great American mistake becomes the embarrassing footnote of our history that it deserves to be.
I will do this as quickly as possible every chance I get.
I will do my part to limit the damage that this man can do to my country.
I will watch his every move and point out every single mistake and misdeed in a loud and proud voice.
I will let you know in a loud voice every time this man backs away from a promise he made to them.
Them. The people who voted for him.
The ones who sold their souls and prayed for him to win.
I will do this so that they never forget.
And they will hear me.
They will see it in my eyes when I look at them.
They will hear it in my voice when I talk to them.
They will know that I know who they are.
They will know that I know what they are.
Do not call for my tolerance. I’ve tolerated all I can.
Now it’s their turn to tolerate ridicule.
Be aware, make no mistake about it, every single thing that goes wrong in our country from this day
forward is now Trump’s fault just as much as they thought it was Obama’s.
I find it unreasonable for them to expect from me what they were entirely unwilling to give.”
