    I well remember back not really so very long ago, when gun laws were being ‘neoliberalized’ that in many police forces, it was the sheriffs and other longtime professionals who objected and spoke out strongly to the effect that allowing more guns on the street would indeed make them more vulnerable – and simply having [...]

    Bless you, Isaiah 88. I recognize the ambiguity of saying ‘Christian country’ and bluebutterfly’s point is well taken. Terrible things have indeed been done in the name of Christianity – deeds which are not Christian. It is Christian to wish one another peace, peace to everyone – just as in those other major religions, and [...]

    There are far too many guns available far to easily to unstable individuals. This has got to stop must include any irrational gun violence, as I posted above. Injustice is not an excuse for mindless atrocities such as this, even if as hfc points out, the stage has been set for such tragedies to occur. I am [...]

    I’m usually the last one in here, wendydavis, so it’s a pleasure to join you at the head of this thread, or near the head at any rate. I would so love it if there are any videos of the speech of the young man who is Tamir Rice’s big brother, or if there is [...]

    I love your postings, Isaiah88, and you know I do, for their poetry and poignant beauty and clarity of expression – I can no more describe the blinding hypocrisy of these “journalists” than I can the surface of the sun. This is such a shaft of light, a warning to everyone seeking to decode the propaganda. [...]

    Thank you so much, Jane24. I guess my question here would be, why on earth would his accent be important? (Don’t worry, that’s really rhetorical – just points to the lengths some will go to these days to alienate the citizenry from one another.) We need this trial to be as lengthy a process as [...]

    My guess is Colbert will be running for president – after all, he has a predecessor in Pat Paulsen, and since we already did so well with an actor, surely it is time for a comedian now?

    Fresh gene pool!

    I’m also just doing a driveby on this OC (Old Calendar) Saint Nicholas Day, extending my Christian support to all of this protest movement – to answer Che Pasa maybe? ;) I am currently embroidering the familiar to some icon of the face of Christ, around which I have put (along with seraphims, seas, and [...]

    Happy Old Calendar Saint Nicholas Day, everyone! I was singing ‘Good King Wenceslaus’ this morning, and do you know the lively tune morphed into the Dostoievski fable of Grushenka’s onion – many of you will know it, and I’m sure you can look it up – it’s only now I appreciate the delicious irony of it, so thank you Jon for asking the question! I will now answer it:

    Cuba is Obama’s onion. LOL (really)

    A decent nation didn’t. Whoever controlled the machines did – until we thought we could overcome the machinery with judasgoat Obama.

    We tried. Never forget that.

    Thanks for all you have done, Brandon, and I will join you in recommending revists to your posts, good idea! And if I may, for those interested in financial matters, (I don’t really know why I am, since finances are a foreign country to me in more ways than one) here’s a post to digest by Stieglitz via Yves and among comments a riproaring one by cwaltz:

    Thanks for this, Pluto, amazing speed! – New Zealand has always benefited from having a lower dollar vis-a-vis the US as far as its own trade practices but that China trade was strong even before the US got on the bandwagon. ( As kids we gorged on Chinese gooseberries, now labelled kiwifruit.) Bye bye TPP! [...]

    Fifteen years of impeachable offenses, and I don’t care if Supreme Court judges have died or retired or whatever – it began with them refusing to let citizen’s votes be counted in Florida. There ought to be a process whereby citizens could vote a statutory impeachment (I don’t know if that’s proper terminology, but it [...]

    “Update: Since this story was written, Australia caved in and joined China’s Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, turning its back on US pressure to boycott it. A smart move on their part.” Wow, Pluto, that is huge! Things are moving very rapidly and the repercussions are hopefully going to make international peaceful relations a fait accomplis. What [...]

    Might be us in those frozen villas of the welltodo, sooner rather than later, don’t you think? What remains with me of the character of Zhivago is how accepting he was of everything that came, even the pushy lady in charge of the Moscow house, readily agreeing that yes, it had been an injustice for [...]

    I hope you have had the happiest of birthdays, wendydavis, and thank you for all you do. I noted in this thread of riches that you used the beautiful and inspiring quote from Pasternak’s Doctor Zhivago (‘Zhivago’ comes from the Russian word for ‘life’). It has seemed to me this novel describes events very close to [...]

    2014-12-12 10:49:21View | Delete

    What about suing the government for taking the country to war over false pretences? That’s a kind way to say the government LIED to the American public, which I think is an impeachable offence, Constitutionally speaking, and I’m all for retroactive impeachment – let the record be corrected!!!

    Thank you for the beautiful icon and the powerful images accompanying it, wendydavis. Recommended. The icon reminds us that the first Christmas was not a merry one. The magi did come bearing gifts, but I don’t think they shopped at Walmart. I have a couple of gifts, though not a magi I by any means. [...]

    “Torture is never justified under any circumstances. The torturers are war criminals and they should be prosecuted.

    Those who aided and abetted them and those who impeded investigations afterward should also be prosecuted.”

    This is the bottom line. Also, Obama’s words to excuse these ‘folks’ must go down in history along with his shameful accelleration of the illegal war activities he has been perpetrating ever since he took office, as evidence for impeachment on Constitutional grounds.
