I've Been Alive Since 1955

I have seen a lot and been through a lot with family and friends and studied social data along the way and diligently for 30 odd years.

The USA is the Most Moral and Strong Nation on Earth Today, with President Obama.

For every thing I might mention in the president's favor his detractors will seem to find treasonous...? Really?

No Lawmaker has once brought any charges of any in-compliance of law or constitution against President Obama, but YET it is a pervasive MEME in ultra-conservative and ultra-liberal media that the president of the USA is an 'Outlaw on the Run'.

Wake up America, see the light do the best you can no matter how imperfect. That is how progress is made.

The biggest fallacy in the country today is that Liberal Media support president Obama. Conservatives know that Liberal media attacks them and they assume that means they support the president, but nooooo. Liberal media usually take the tack that 'Obama isn't Liberal Enough and he's let us down'. Jon Stewart treats Obama as if he's just as bad as Dick Cheney. They act like he could have done everything FDR and LBJ did if he just wanted to. They ignore that those presidents had vastly more D's in congress than Obama has had, even in his 1st term, neo-con Lieberman was his '60th vote'
Stewart and Colbert owe it to the youth of America to say every night "Don't get all your news from me, I am a comedian who is payed to mock EVERYBODY not tell you who to support and vote for.

How Racists Became Republicans

It goes like this...Lincoln a Republican ended slavery, racist southern whites spurned the Rs and went Democrat, but then when northern Liberals like JFK became president as D's and worked towards progress on Civil Rights southern white racists freaked out and supported George Wallace and spurned both major parties. Then Reagan, a Republican, was elected and brought racism back to the white house and the white racists loved him so they became 'Reagan Democrats' and morphed to Republican Tea Party racist terrorists.

#HOW ABOUT IF WE ALL VOTE!

When Will We Learn?

During what years was the USA at our economic peak? 1940-80. The tax rates on the wealthy from 1940-80 were double today's rates, no coincidence. And don't say 'the rich didn't really pay them'. There's no way our economy grew so much and we did so much with such low debt without vastly more revenue. From 1940-80 we paid for WWII, Korean War, Vietnam war, Republican Eisenhower built our Entire entire Interstate Expressways system and we went to the moon-manned 6 times! Kennedy only lowered the upper rate a little, but Reagan decimated it and America has gone into debt and disrepair since then. Sad...When will we learn?

ARE WE IN HELL?

I have been thinking that we were in hell for a while. Maybe that's the only logical philosophical explanation for the troubles of Earth. BUT I BELIEVE WE CAN WORK OUR WAY OUT OF HELL!
MAYBE WE'RE IN THE UNIVERSAL PRISON FOR THOSE UNWORTHY OF PERFECT LOVE AND LIVING IN HEAVEN...?

Obama Best Prez Since FDR

If you don't know that President Obama is the best we've seen since FDR then you just don't know our history. It may feel good to focus on some 'good thing' he hasn't done and pat yourself on the back as being superior, as if you could have accomplished more, but it's just not true. Just look at the one HUGE thing he did recently he did by opening up the US to Cuba. ANY previous president since JFK could have done that by fiat and only president Obama DID IT! You don't think it's HUGE? Read this...President Obama's change of our immigration policy and Cuba policy (by executive order) changes civilization for the better! This man will be on money someday.

-MEXICO CITY — Cuba has been the epicenter of anti-Americanism in modern Latin America. As a political ideology it was born during the Spanish-American War of 1898, reached its height with the victory of the Cuban Revolution in 1959, and may now, through a singularly courageous move by President Obama, have begun its final decline.
The agreement to re-establish diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba will face serious problems: the opposition of conservative American legislators, as well as a tortuous path toward civil and political liberties in Cuba(the recent detention of bloggers trying to expand the range of free speech in Cuba is a bad omen). But acclaim for the agreement is widespread in Latin America. By his historic announcement on Dec. 17, Obama has begun to dismantle one of the most deeply rooted ideological passions of the southern continent.-cont

A Walk With MLK-My proudest day.

One bright morning when I was a 12 year old boy living in Sandy Springs GA, my mother June announced to my younger brother and sister and me that we weren't going to school that day. She told us to dress nice and get in the car. We only found out as we were leaving the house that we were going to march in Martin Luther King's funeral procession.
It was a short quiet drive. I don't care for crowds and I was worried that this was going to be a long hard sermon to listen to, but I knew we were doing the right thing. We had mostly grown up in the poorer parts of various southern towns and we were used to both colors of people sharing the streets, but this was an amazing feeling to be the only people of one color we saw in such a large crowd. I wasn't surprised at how warm and comfortable it felt. And I realized immediately what a good idea Momma had to come there.
The entire walk and service seem like a beautiful, if melancholy dream. Never had we felt such an outpouring of peace and goodwill through such sadness. All of us have shared our memories over the years, many times. The whole event passed like a song, but midway through my younger brother, only 8, began fidgeting, being so short he was staring at people's stomachs and bored. Then slowly and quietly, without a word, a tall strong man standing behind Steve reached down and picked him up over his head and gently placed him on his shoulders so he could see. Steve was quietly mesmerized and still says it was the most amazing experience he ever had to be lifted up over the crowd and to watch the whole panorama from his private box.
It was a small piece of heaven on earth that the reverend brought to all of us there that day. My mother and sister and brother and I all agree that was all of our proudest day. Not for anything we've done to help with King's cause, but what we did for ourselves by being there. It changed us. It was a religious experience.
When I see pictures of the good doctor and his statue on the mall, he is very real to me. He is still alive, I'm sure of it.
And I wouldn't be at all surprised if he came back one bright morning.

#JESUISPOPEFRANCIS

JE SUIS POPE FRANCIS!

I hate it when silly shallow people think that their pet causes are 'black and white, go grey area, right and wrong, good or bad'. NOTHING in this universe is 'black and white' PHYSICS isn't black and white and while I defend free speech I don't defend bullying and harassment...
JE SUIS POPE FRANCIS!

POPE SLAMS CHARLIE HEBDO! YES!

 This is EXACTLY what I've been saying about this story!

The world can have peace, we just don't seem to want it.

It's all just a set of a lot of Bad Rules, from Geography to Criminology.

The United Nations Must Govern the Holy Lands

After thousands of years of various sects of society justifying their hateful acts by pointing to hateful acts committed by those who they are at odds with, in the past...I'm afraid it will take a nuclear holocaust for us to realize that the world's reaction to the Jewish Holocaust was not a healing response. It was like giving in to the Nazis racist philosophy when the world decided that Jews could not safely live amongst other races and religions and the decision to create a state for them, based on race and religion must have made Hitler smile in his grave. We will not have peace until the United Nations is given real power as a world government and begins enforcing the law and legal boundaries in the Holy Lands.

I do mean re-enforcing the original contract between world powers and the Palestinians to re-create the nation state of Israel. No matter what the cost of doing this safely, for all involved, the benefits to the region and all inhabitants and the world as a whole would be great.

I would not say this if I didn't think the citizens of Israel would not benefit equally as the citizens of Palestine. God help me it's true. 

The World created Israel and we must defend it and guide it. JE SUIS ISRAELIS!. Israel is a world nation.
