Bathrooms: the new threat to democracy

by Tommi Avicolli Mecca

Have you heard about the latest threat to our democracy?

It’s not some dictator in some country most Americans can’t find on a map, a dictator put into power by the CIA. 

It’s not weapons of mass destruction in some oil-rich country. Or even a runaway chunk of space rock that’s about to blow us to smithereens or send us into a new ice age.

It’s people of the “wrong” gender using our bathrooms, violating our sacred trust in…

As Plain As The Nose On Your Face

 

Jeepers !

Is this political season wacky or what ?

A little exaggerating about accomplishments, lofty goals that cannot be achieved, and tales of who knows who and how that will help or hinder is to be expected. Grandma called it prevaricating. You were not supposed to do it but a firestorm eternity wasn't the likely…

911/ trump, the missing 28 pages, saudi arabia, israel

there is an old buddhist saying. "like the sun and the moon, the truth cannot be long hidden". my zen question, what is "long"? how about ~1½ decade or so since 911?

havent blogged on conspiracy theory in quite awhile, and even longer on 911 (after years of blogging on it), but yesterdays conspiracy can turn into todays political controversy/ firestorm. events in this area somehow went from comatose to fast-paced/ dizzying in just a few days. will the momentum continue, or dissipate…

Take a Break

It's a good day to take a break.

I'm thinking of politics, and the rancor spreading.

To my way of thinking the discussion has become needlessly bitter, filled with conjecture and accusations, superfluous absolutism and mighty imaginations.

That's just here.

In the real world, it's compounded by face to face disagreements, workplace angst and an overall sense of battle.

It could be a time to come together.

The truth is, I'm not going to do…

There's Common Sense in Tennessee and then There's Mississippi...

When Republican Governor Bill Haslam vetoed legislation making The Holy Bible the State Book of Tennessee, it appeared that there might be some vestigial common sense among Southern Republicans, and I published a post giving credit where credit was due: Finally a Southern (Well Border State) Republican Governor Who Has Some Common…

Finally a Southern (Well Border State) Republican Governor Who Has Some Common Sense

Not sure if the Governor of Tennessee was paying attention to what's been happening in North Carolina on the back side of the passage of their HB2 Bathroom Law, but Bill Haslam exercised his veto power to bring some common sense to the  legislature's attempt to enshrine the Holy Bible as the State Book of Tennessee.…

My Independent run homework, the twelfth VP

Millard Fillmore was born in Moravia New York in on January 7th, 1800. At a time when it was popular for politicians to prove they were “of the people” by claiming they were born in a log cabin he actually was. Instead of a formal education Fillmore was apprenticed to a cloth manufacturer, he only attended a school, the New Hope Academy, for six months. While learning the cloth trade he also clerked for Judge Walter Wood where he first began studying the law.

Fillmore saved…

Of course it can be and as Western Jews we do Israel no service with blind, uncritical acceptance of all Israeli governments and policies (despite the fact that some Western Jewish organizations behave as if blind acceptance is a requirement of…
