    Charles Krauthammer and Pyromania

His article, “ The Trump Cabinet: Bonfire of the agencies  “, reflects his view that Government regulatory agencies should be torched. Like a pyromaniac, Mr. Krauthammer looks on gleefully as a fire he helped create with incendiary articles, lays waste to the agencies set up to protect our health and the environment. He seems particularly enamored with Scott Pruitt, who will likely head the EPA.  As the Attorney General of Oklahoma, Mr. Pruitt favored corporations and sued the EPA stop enforcement of...

    In 2016, two protests were held over the use of public land. It would seem reasonable that the law enforcement authorities would respond the same to each situation, but that was not the case. The Malheur Refuge Standoff : In January, armed militants seized the headquarters of the Malheur national wildlife refuge in Oregon to protest the conviction of Dwight and Steven Hammond for arson on federal BLM land. The charges were brought because the fires had endangered the lives of firefighters.  Ammon Bundy, the son of the anti-government protester Cliven D. Bundy,  led the protest. The militants declared the federal government had no authority to manage the federal lands and demanded that the federal government cede ownership of BLM federal lands and the refuge to the state. The...

    "May You Live In Interesting Times"


    By Moonchild63, 2016-11-15
    "May You Live In Interesting Times"
    Although it is used as a 'Toast' (usually @ the New Year's) it is also in lure purported to be a 'Curse!' - well "Toast or Curse," We the people's of America do (presently) "... Live in Interesting Times." I put to NT "How does one hold their nose where Sexual Assault & Abuse are Concerned!?" & got '0' takers, yet later posted a seeded link "Hillary Wins Popular Vote & its Growing!," which presently has over 150 responses. I guess, I should be heartened & encouraged as a non-answer is my Answer! & that 'No One' can or would dare (obviously) attempt a justification. I guess that I am a New Breed of American, Woman, African descendent, as well as Child of a Higher Good! As, I don't get 'angry' people, yet like the Tee-Shirt says agree "They Suck!" As for...

    How Does One Hold Their Nose Where Sexual Assault & Abuse Are Concerned!?
    Well, the people have spoken & some are presently speaking back regarding the so called president elect & those who held secret meetings, yelled "LIAR" @ State of Union, Obstructed on "Birtherism" A/K/A DEFAMATION (which is an Actionable Tort Mr. President, not just something for a defamer - in transition to power - to Skirt on hummph Principle!) Or Changed their job description to 'One-Terming" to undermine the people's (@ that time "Mandate") Voice regarding " Hope & "the changes" they voted and Won (twice) for, but to Hear the Revere today They #Never belly-ached & worked Hard @ reconciliation & bipartisanship in 2008 & 2012, yet LIKE the MESS that Bush made (& left to the left to Clean Upo) & the Actual Two wins of Obama - They wish...

    Regarding Last Night!

    Regarding Last Night!
    This was my response to comment on NT article regarding Canada's response to our election, as well as "Hillary Conceded": As bad as that is, I am glad she did. (conceding) The victory laps have begun, yet WORK must begin & how much Hope do you have from people who Obstructed Change on the Humbug of Skin (esp. in the 21st century) because it still comes down to some basic facts: The Republicans had 8 years & lost, didn't do it well or graciously, but gripped & whined, *itched & moaned. Refused to do ANYTHING but shore up the White Collar, War and many other criminals that Bushonomics made! Bernie went establishment to beat the establishment, yet that move didn't help McCain and it certainly didn't help Hillary (yet for those going after her - NOTHING would)...

    & I quote Serendipitously
    Funny, the 90's seem to be back! The feebies found some pardon documents from the 1990's (wink) & how they relate to Hillary's job as Sec. of State is any bodies guess pffffft There is nothing wrong with staying home nor is there wrongness in working (in or outside the Home a Woman's work is Never done - come on ladies ya know it is True!), yet "We" know the wrong here and it is not the awesome & Over qualified female candidate for President! People will always try to put you in a box, heck they make the question illegal but unless you happen to be the cool texasbama herself the Box still applies - so says the much Heralded bushwhacking, gropper who views Serial bankruptcy filing, as Business Success (pitiful) Hate me cuz ya Ain't me real mature.

    Just Chilling Listening to Ed Sheeran!
    I LOVE "I See Fire!" & "God gave Noah the rainbow sign, no more water but the fire next time." James Baldwin I find both even more fitting looking over the Media Feed & Feedback, but still, I will add to the get Out the, Rock the & "Don't boo, Boo" - Vote pieces - as "I See Fire" hollowing souls! Those, I Loved, but never knew paid Prices that I ("We") can only Imagine and this song makes me feel EVERY INCH of those Sacrifices. Unfortunately, I haven't sat down with Skip Gates, but 100% anything - other than Human can I (or Any for that Matter) call myself, yet Price was/is Still paid! "We" fought back against Jaded Big Money & they Used the Usual Minions & Unconstitutional Minion 🐂 with the twist of Mr....
    “Americans now look at the FBI and see a political entity, not a nonpartisan entity — and that has huge ramifications for the FBI and for all of us,” said Matt Miller, former chief spokesman for the Justice Department and a Clinton supporter. “It sows disbelief in our system of government and is hugely toxic.” That's a quote from a Washington Post article about the FBI and a recent release of the investigation into Bill Clinton and the pardon of Marc Rich. Well. Allow me to pontificate. That statement, uttered in connection with events of the past few days, could easily refer to the announcement of FBI Director Comey that there would not be an indictment of Hillary Clinton following the initial investigation of her email fiasco. The simple fact is, Justice died that day, and the...

    In addition to "OM" I offer this article & alert NewsTalkers to new meditation offered via Oprah & Deepak Chopra! 7 ESSENTIAL HABITS FOR PEACE by: Deepak Chopra, M.D. Embrace Compassion and Leave Conflict Behind https://chopracentermeditation.com/article/9-7_essential_habits_for_peace   “It’s only when you make the process your goal that the big dream can follow.” – Oprah We all want to contribute to global peace, but it can feel disheartening when we see discord in the news, in politics, and even in our own relationships. But you can take a different perspective by setting the more accessible goal of creating peace within yourself – which then expands like a ripple to your relationships, your community, and ultimately the world. Wisdom traditions teach...
