***** very important article. I don't know that the article says this, but authoritarianism is the predictable, very likely results, of having been abused substantially earlier in one's life. ' the rise of American authoritarianism.'

St Patrick's day. My friend just enlightened me. ''It is strange that in my family the potato famine was talked about often. The deliberate starvation of the Irish people. I learned nothing about it in American school. But hey people in America think St. Pats day is a wonderful thing. Yet not to my family........ '''

It is strange that in my family the potato famine was talked about often. The deliberate starvation of the Irish people.
I learned nothing about it in American school. But hey people in America think St. Pats day is a wonderful thing. Yet not to my family... He was a horror. The snakes he drove from Ireland.... Non Christians.... Gypsy, Druid, and other religious and native culture people's.  When I was little the teacher told us to wear green to celebrate and I told my family I had to do it... Lol I was sent in black clothing with a note... We do not celebrate this day as it is the celebration of a man who  was evil itself.
Strange they don't teach about the real story in schools...

***** Regarding Bernie and me: despite that I find him a godsend, last chance for us all, I am aware that my nervous system has kept me on the sidelines.......

***** Regarding Bernie and me:  despite that I find him a godsend, last chance for us all, I am aware that my nervous system has kept me on the sidelines, just sending on favorable posts, but not diving in with what little resources I have or time to support the campaign. I think I have just understood why. A combination of feeling that the odds were too low that he would win the nomination, and not being drawn into efforts to win an election, that that was not promising enough. Now that it appears extremely unlikely that he will win the nomination I suspect I will begin working substantially , including limited funds, toward the campaigning. Odd, right? The reason is that now I feel that any efforts are less about getting him elected, not that that wouldn't be wonderful, but more about building, and advancing, sowing the seeds for, doing the education for.. a movement. I don't think I can resist participating in, working in furtherance of, that. And yes, this is contrary to what I had earlier said, that I would not work to advance anyone, that had not taken an unequivocal stand against the genocide of Palestine. But as I wrote last week I have undergone a substantial shift in that I seem to be finally finally finally metabolising that the disintegration of society and Humanity has begun but that there are still current and future survivors to protect and help, even in Palestine, and surely Bernie is the way Superior option in that regard for Palestine than are any of the other candidates.

***** People pushed absolutely to the wall can be the luckiest of us all because sometimes they find that they have nothing left but to act for pure morality, pure goodness, pure Justice itself, the ultimate aesthetic experience, the ultimate ecstasy. This is much what I experience in my life from moment to moment. And it is what I have always envied, always craved, without for the longest time knowing what it was.

***** WE PALESTINIANS WAKE UP EVERY DAY AND TEACH THE REST OF THE WORLD LIFE, SIR. The Palestinians are a breathtaking, impossibly, divinely Humane people. Maybe the most Humane people on Earth. Of course we are trying to exterminate them. They show the rest of us to be the Twisted cripples that we are.

Neither Obama or Trump have created this disease unbridled ignorant hatred that we see sweeping across the country.. Between them they have simply caused it to come into the open. Now.......

Neither Obama or Trump have created this disease unbridled ignorant hatred that we see sweeping across the country.. Between them they have simply caused it to come into the open. Now we get to see if the antibodies, the people of goodwill, are strong enough, numerous enough, good enough, able enough to go beyond their lip service good intentions, to deal with it before it kills the body.
