    I am so sad and furious. I don’t know what we can do. BDS. Gaza has been totally destroyed. This has been the plan. I suppose Israel can be proud that this destruction in one of the most densely populated areas has occurred with “only” 1200 or more murdered in the process. BDS. That’s all [...]

    Well done, ysd. I too am up early today, all news is bad lately. I don’t know what to do.

    Sadly true. Zealots are not limited to one gender.

    Yep, and similar, more of same an analysis from one of my friends, a righteous rave on a subject dear to my heart. The gist: “I live in a country that has failed for close to 100 years to give women full constitutional rights in the form of the Equal Rights Amendment, but now recognizes constitutional [...]

    GM, dinerzens. Thanks for the Monday news, BT. Not much good to report.

    Here’s a little clip of teh stoopit on evolution.

  • Thanks for this report, Kevin. I will say that in Albuquerque where the police have been and continue to be killing people without accountability, they were even-tempered and overall helpful, it seemed to me, with the frictions during a Friday afternoon demonstration for Palestine last week. There was a Christian pro-Israel contingent, and there were some hostilities between one and the other group. I tried to stay away from the conflicts, so my observation was from across the street. But I thought the police were essentially calm and did not contribute to additional problems.

  • And is it true that PBO has asked for $220 BILLION for Israel’s Iron Dome? My god, imagine what we could do if we actually had THAT money.

    Thanks for doing this outreach, Jane. Good to know.

    GM, diners. Hey, I missed the link for your work Starbuck. Could you repost so I can bookmark it?

    Thanks for the mental health day, ms.molly. Needed. My goodness, endless sadness and crazy-making every day these days.

    I always WANT them to do better, to find the better angels and all of that. It is so disheartening. I do want to “like” them truly. But it always goes wrong, it seems.

    I thought Hillary was better, but of course we know who she is here to serve.

    It is really discouraging.

    It is notable that Kerry landed at that airport yesterday despite the ban. Kind of in our face. He makes me sick every time he opens his mouth.

    Perhaps it will change if enough people speak out. We had another horror in Albuquerque this week. Not sure if it is a tone set by police killing the homeless or just very disturbed kids. I have been in the garden killing bugs. I have my first morning glory bloom today. Lots of sunflowers. Some datura, one [...]

    Sorry for the bitterness. I really am over the edge on this issue. APD killed again this week. I have been finding a lot of bugs I don’t like in my garden. A few squash bugs hatched, and I have been killing sunflower beetles and trying to wash away aphids. I do have a lot [...]

    Iron Dome is the Israeli defense operation. All the rockets (most of them anyway) from Hamas (or whomever) are shot down before they land in Israel. So this is just for the defense. Imagine what those dollars could do to alleviate the suffering in Gaza. I mean, besides just genocide, to put Palestinians out of [...]

    GM, dinerzens. I have been waking up in the night for hours for weeks, and wouldn’t you know it, as soon as I have an OE post, I slept through the night and overslept the launch. Jeez. The news today is awful. I hope everyone has a good day! I will try to hang out [...]

I am super-busy lately, and I don’t really have much time to hang about. So please do your part to keep the conversation going as I won’t be able to be here [...]
