1980. Carter was well intentioned but no match for Dallas. The rise of American Fascism was not checked and segregation replaced with Internal state sponsored terrorism ...racism without race; the on going destruction of the FDR power base was not checked under Carter. It was not about race, it was about control; white elite control.
Legislating morality...White southern morality, perhaps related to Chip’s very public outing as a pot user may have pushed…Continue

I have heard Debra Lipstat speak on many NPR shows and one of her main complaints is that the White Nationalists don't see Jews as White. And she as well as David Falkenflick condemn Ilon Omar for speaking…Continue
What's missing in Ms Warren's impeachment call is anything remotely like a strategy toward 67 Senate votes after the House acts.
While she and others may have a strategy, it'd be heartwarming to know that even w.o details, because the single event that could warp-speed us into fascism and move us far beyond the current tips of the hat to fascism we see weekly now, would be an impeachment vote in…Continue
So here's the question:
Is she correct in insisting that constitutional principles supersede.presidential politics?

I saw a comment stream on a blog, which discussed beautiful words (the comments, not the blog's content). One suggestion was 'syphilis' being the most beautiful word in the English language.
Imagine my surprise to see this story in my newsfeed. Syphilis has returned to God's Country; Missouri specifically in the story. And, of course, the Bible Thumpers are in Da Nile over yet another…Continue
Deception is part of nature...all of culture is natural, there is no such thing as supernatural; rare maybe, not seen in our lifetime rare, could be...but not supernatural, or beyond nature.
Why lie? Why cheat? Why steal? Why rationalize? I can rationalize lying, cheating and stealing, and forgive humans, myself included for having broken in order to meet real needs; or for having been broken and used to further the reach of the MIC. I have too. If I…Continue

Mueller Report Concludes Donald Trump Jr. Too Ignorant to Prosecute: Donald Trump Jr. has taken to social media to brag about how he emerged from the Mueller investigation uncharged, even though it appears from the report that Mueller’s team…Continue
Presence Matters! So sayeth the Navy of near yesteryear. I’m no defender of The Navy, but presence does matter. Seeing can lead to believing, but I’ve seen that screwed up too.
The Navy is only as good as the people who work there. As far as I know there are no unpaid volunteers, draftees, or conscripts in the American Navy. I wore the uniform as a volunteer, unpaid...after 9/11/01. FEMA paid New Jersey for my service, and for a few days the State Of New…Continue

The following was copied from a Unitarian Universalist bulletin. It expresses a concept that is often either denied, forgotten or never realized. In today’s political divide over immigration it seems important to realize that many of those we will never know who helped enhance our lives are and were immigrants who took jobs beneath their ability in order to enjoy life here. Some slaves, and the children of slaves, built buildings and roads and created works of art for which they got no…Continue

In 1948, mathematician John Von Neumann theorized the potential existence of a kind of computational machine which would evolve at such a pace as to soon be capable of replicating itself in an exponential mode of systemic upgrade. He postulated that with each new 'replica' of itself, there would be improvements made upon the…Continue

Reparations due: us is not US, US is not U.S.
We, all of us humans, who are alive on Earth are us. Some among us believe they are exceptional, they are US. To be of US is to believe one is entitled to privileges and immunities not deserving of the vast majority of the rest of us. Some of us…Continue
Off the top of my Head of the Charles River, I crew in canoe.
Off the Commons there is Curley’s but I stay in China Town. I like the noodles and dumplings of Boston. I like the diversity of Boston, I like the frog pond on a summer Sunday morning.
And so a challenger rises, and I see what I like. I see a challenger rising, and so the right that I knew once shows signs of life, in spring.
Is the Charles cleaner now that Weld has jumped…Continue
