My annual Sept 11, 2001 observance

Hello folks,

Van living has been a challenge for my old bones, and getting a chance to visit here has been a rare luxury. But now I'm rehabbing an old trailer on community land and even get time to write a little. Each year I re-edit a novella I wrote - a 9/11 Truther novel of sorts - revising the contents with any new developments, such as the engineering modeling experiments regarding Building 7 of the WTC complex recently completed at the University of Fairbanks.  It was the third,…

The 2nd article by Susan Raffo on white privilege...this time about whites being harmed themselves.

Perhaps an eruption of racial bigotry at the foot of Jefferson's statue is as fitting as the racist battle cry at Lee's

I've spent a good portion of my day and night watching and reading everything I can find on the Unite The Right riot in Charlottesville, Va today, in part because the issue of racial inequality and bigotry saddens and wounds me and so many others so deeply, and in part because I have family that live there, that have gone to UVA,…

After the Voting Rights Act was gutted in 2013, it's still working for white conservatives. Maybe not so much for others. It's August 6th and a time to remember and act.

A repost from Daily Kos blogger Denise Oliver Valez giving us THE comprehensive history and current layout of the Voting Rights Act of August 6,1965. I lived in America before it. Now I'm thinking I'm going to be living…

Daily Show repost - The Translators

An excellent point is made in this hilarious skit - much of the world only hears Trump through a translator.

Trump's invisible border wall by declaration is taken to court by asylum seekers

Laws reflect and uphold our freedom to live and express our agreed upon values as a plurality of people. The latest wave of anti-immigration proponents are, once again, about to be reminded of that.…

Rachel Maddow rant on Trump distraction end game and the news most people didn't learn today or yesterday

Decent minded people were predictably and deliberately distracted by Trump's vulgarity towards Mika Brzezinski in a display created and timed with the Trump administration being informed by the WSJ about their story on Flynn's collusion with…

Best analysis of Trump's @Mika tweet i've seen so far is by Lawrence O'Donnell - distraction, distraction, distraction

We all know it, but dang! It's hard not to react and come to one another's defense. Many manipulators like Trump know this of course. Trump plays to one audience, and one audience only - his own. They love this stuff. Republicans will use it for cover. His true supporters will have…
