Elizabeth Mika declares that tyrants do not arise in a vacuum, just as tyranny does not spring on the world unannounced. It takes years of cultivation of special conditions in a society for a tyranny to take over. Those…Continue

I agree with about 90% of what she says, but I support her right to say the rest just as long as I'm not required to do the same...
Here is what I find totally amazing... this is from almost 40 years ago... we are having the exact same damn arguments we were having in 1988, FFS.

and leave those creatures high and dry.
A pile of dust and rot.
All a matter of use they…Continue

shining happy specks
floating and flitting and flying about
For the first time in its 43 seasons on air, SNL featured a black female stand-up comedienne to host the show, and she absolutely nailed it:
The show premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975, under the original title "NBC's Saturday Night". ----Wikipedia
To put it in perspective:
If you were 18 years old when you saw the first SNL show to…Continue
