A Norwegian fisherman comes home to his house after a weeks voyage, and finds his his wife of 40 years sitting by the hearth and quietly crying.
"What is wrong?" he says.
She says it's nothing, just the cold and loneliness.
He harumphs. She continues to cry.
"Why is it you cry now, after forty years? he…
It's once again the Fourth of July, and I came across this essay, which I first posted on Open Salon in 2010- Just goes to show, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Happy Fourth!

The long and short of it is that I would prefer to vote for Sanders for president this fall. I don't agree with his methods, but on the whole I agree with his goals, and I believe he is an honorable man. He is vastly preferable to Trump.
I would consider not voting this fall, if the race were Biden vs Trump. They are about equally distasteful to me.…Continue
ANYWAY............as an aside, I also did Fraternity composites, but only under either economic or social pressure ( being recommended by one of my sororities, or an available group of "pretty" rich boys ). Most Fraternities remind me too much that I spent the first 18 years of my life as a Gunnery Sergeant to younger brothers, Boy Scouts, Youth Group,…Continue

An Easter Repost, as a reminder of the meaning of the day.
Thank you for this perfect day.

You can always find a topic for a flame war!
in the process we've found out jmac and nerd cred have had dealings with "classified" relations, and that Keiko is a member of the I.M. Force ( Is Tom Cruise really as short as they say?)
As I said from the first. This is sound and fury signifying nothing.
The fact of Hillary setting her system up and then deleting government documents at her discretion is the crime.

One simple question. What is a BELIEVABLE and innocent reason for Clinton to have set up her own email server?
I've set up servers for county governments all over the eastern US.... it isn't easy, it isn't cheap, it's hard to protect from malevolent intruders. It really pisses of the designated IT staff of any entity.
She isn't in a position of "Innocent until proven guilty" She is caught red handed.
