Murder Rate in New York City Falling to Record Lows

Murder Rate in New York City Falling to Record Lows:  New statistics are showing that murders in New York City are at a record low - and are now roughly the same as Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota.  When questioned about the decline, researchers say with the deep social cuts and transfer of wealth under the newly passed GOP Tax Plan, many disillusioned murders are feeling “what’s the point?  The economy’s gonna take care of everything…

Seasons Tidings on Hold

My mailbox was smashed to bits when I got home Wednesday night, along with my neighbor's being dented. Given that I live 25 minutes from the closest hardware store that was still open when I got home that day, I opened the USPS web page and put a hold on my mail. The shortest amount of time you're allowed is three mail delivery days so throw in Christmas and I won't be getting any more mail until December 26. I think I've received all of the cards I'll be…

Now, It's Your Turn

One might fairly say that Orange Julius Caesar has had a year, nearly, of riding on Obambi's economic coattails. So, here's what briefing.com had to say just now (8:33 am):

Just in, personal income climbed 0.3% in November (Briefing.com consensus +0.4%) following an unrevised increase of 0.4% in October. Meanwhile, personal spending rose 0.6% in November (Briefing.com consensus +0.4%), up from a revised…

It's been awhile.........since I've thrown a temper-rantum.

What the hell happened to the stuffed suit muckety mucks running this show? Washington DC has become a RICO unto itself. Investigating the investigators? REALLY? And how do we know we can trust the investigator, investigators? The "judicial system" in this country is corrupt to the bone, and rotten from the head down. I've been to court before, and what I noticed is that people in court are automatically guilty, until, or unless they can prove beyond any doubt that they're not. I've…

Never Coming Back

My intention is not to burden anyone here with my problems only to try and purge myself of this malaise on this Christmas season. I always wondered why my Dad got so weird and distant on the holidays years after we lost my Mom in 1997. I had to experience this before I understood what he was going through, I mean, I knew it intellectually but not emotionally. My Mother died of a form of lymphoma that took Linda McCartney in 2 years. My mother fought…

Want To Spew Hasbara BS? There's An App For That!

The poor, poor defenders of oppression, apartheid, war crimes and ethic cleanings have had it hard for many years.  They were forced to actually read and memorize the Hasbara Handbook!

American Diversity Is the Meaning and Spirit of Christmas

Only in America could two gentlemen of the Jewish persuasion and heritage have composed the songs that are the epitome of expression of the spirit of the consummate Christian holiday....And, only in America could these songs be made immortal by two gentlemen of significantly diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural background and heritage.

I'm speaking, of course, of Irving Berlin, Mel Torme, Nat "King" Cole, and Bing Crosby. These men of music are the embodiment of what it means to be…

Baby Born From Embryo Frozen 24 Years Ago

Baby Born From Embryo Frozen 24 Years Ago:  A 26-year-old American woman has given birth to a baby that grew from an embryo frozen 24 years earlier, in what could be a record length between the donating of an embryo and the delivery of a child.  All I can say is, this poor kid has to have one hell of a confusing birth certificate.  I mean, if Trump thought Obama’s birth certificate was a problem, this outta make his head spin right off.  And considering…

Darwin In Action

The Tea Baggers incessantly bray that the "free market" solves all ills. So, today we find that DeVos is paying back her donors.

Students who attended for-profit colleges filed nearly 99 percent of the requests for student loan forgiveness alleging fraud, according to [The Century Foundation] the [sic] a liberal-leaning think tank.

"The most moral army in the world" ~ Israeli Minister of Justice Ayelet Shaked

Hmmmm...

Some might take umbrage to that quote in my title...

I certainly do...

Image result for Ahed Tamimi

...but maybe Ayelet Shaked has a different definition of "moral", seeing as how the following video clearly shows 15 or so members of the Israeli Occupation Forces beating a…
