Comedian Lewis Black would say, when hearing of problems such as this, (paraphrase) It seems as though the world has taken a turn. Unfortunately, this is not a turn, just what is another in the ancient and cultural long attack and terrorization of women. To wit: Pakistani woman burnt to death, Brazilian gang rape, and an especially disturbing item, Gangbang T-shirt.
There’s far more to say, but not enough room.

I made the mistake of watching the debate last night while I mourned the AZ Wildcats home loss, thereby breaking their longest home winning streak in the country.
Start of Rant. Soapbox please!
It’s hard to express the feelings as I watched this dog and pony show. (One historical aspect of all these campaigns, is the issues discussed are ALWAYS the same! Ear. Isolationism. Taxes. Immigration. Economy. Welfare. Oil. nothing new here) I think one of the primary ability, if not the primary ability a candidate has to have is the ability to know which lie to tell and when to tell it. Even when confronted with direct evidence from interviews, campaigns, etc. ALL these guys lied through their teeth. Despite that, nowhere does anyone call then liars! Their lies have been integrated into the process under fact checking. They lie. Facts are checked. And we go on thinking this is a normal. Have we fallen so low as to expect so little of those we choose to lead us? And what is perhaps sadder is that mind set incorporates itself into our culture and as us as individuals.
Integrity, Truth. HUMILITY, Apology. Recognizing when someone HAS been effective.
When someone comes along who is truthful etc. The stock answer seems to be “Yeah, but they won’t get elected”. So we keep getting these false leaders and wonder what the hell is going on! Well we get what we ask for.
So I’m posting this link cause it is the most extensive fact checking I have seen in a traditional media outlet. And don’t get me started about media.
Oh NO!!! The best, most fun, and silly and sexy show on TV is taking a break. I am not a TV junkie, FAN, by any stretch. But Dr Who saved me while I was recovering from my bone marrow transplant due to cancer. Besides the folks who have been doctors and their ability to keep me laughing as well as providing a modicum of challenge to my drug addled brain, it provided structure at a time I could not buy a schedule.
Quick note: not a fan of Capaldi yet. It always takes time to adjust to a new Dr. So far, Matt Smith is BEST. Of course when you have Amelia Pond to always save your ass, how can you go wrong?
Have a great day. And if your on the east coast, love the snow!!!
Bethea explains some yucky truths about PTSD. In the process blows Idiots like Palin out of the water. And shows why people of her ilk are so powerful-they reduce intractable issues that require thought to easy to swallow idiocy. In the process explaining why Palin types are so dangerous.
Of course she represents the anti thought people which is another sad story running through our culture at the moment.
This whole thing is one of the weirdest things to come down the pike in awhile. These guys make me think I need a firearm to protect myself from them! After all isn’t govt supposed to uphold laws whether they believe in them or not? I think the pick and choose approach is called…what is it again? Right Anarchy! The hypocrisy would be laughable if these folks weren’t serious.
I didn’t give this a good look see soccer I’m about ready for bed. Thought I’d post anyways as we men still need all the help we can get. It’s one of my peeves and a driving force for how I try and live.
I feel so safe when I hear of our representatives blocking laws and finding that would reveal the truth about guns and violence. How long will our ostrich nature overrule common sense?
This is in no way an attempt to mollify victims of mass shootings.
The figures on this article are another reality check when discussions about guns come up.
It would appear as a people we are letting fear dominate discussions and possible solutions regarding guns by only focusing on terror killings. The attacks are obviously doing what they are meant to do.
I have no problem with folks owning guns any more than I do drones. But can anyone explain the rationale for having to REGISTER a drone (a process that was put in place in record time) yet I can buy a gun from ANYONE without it being registered by myself or the owner? Not to mention car registrations.
On a tangent: this is exactly the type of issue the powers that be dream about. It’s Divide and Conquer at its best, while the Rich get richer and the little people rant and rage at each other ignoring critical issues that affect their lives.
fear is the mind killer
