Well the little bit I saw last night was terrifying. Lets have something fluffy and positive this morning as a palate cleanser.

RNC-CON... Worse than expected
Author: BobR    Date: 07/20/2016 11:07:44

In the lead-up to this week's Republican Convention in Cleveland, everyone who dislikes Trump was looking forward to a popcorn-fueled comedy show. What we've seen is worse - and darker - than what we could have imagined. It started the first evening and transitioned into the surreal for the 2nd day.

A first clue would be the first speaker after the Pledge, National Anthem, and Invocation - the Duck Dynasty guy. He was followed by has-been celebrities, war widows, and ex-servicemen. The theme of the night was "Make America Safe Again", which means it was mostly a lot of noise about BENGHAZI!! and criticizing Secretary Clinton. The middle portion was an uncomfortable stretch of war porn, as they trotted out a despondent mother of a dead Benghazi employee, and then two guys trading stories about killing people and limbs being blown off. It went on and on and on, until every ammosexual had a boner and all the old women were in tears.

Twenty Years
Author: TriSec    Date: 07/16/2016 11:34:08

Good Morning.

Twenty years ago this morning, I was waking up in the City by the Bay. You saw some stuff earlier this week on the book of face; Mrs. TriSec and I are celebrating 20 years of marriage this week. Our honeymoon choice was the fabulous San Francisco, and to this day it remains my only visit to the West Coast.

Seeing is Believing
Author: BobR    Date: 2016-07-13 10:26:54

Selma, AL, circa early 1960s: For decades, the Deep South had resisted the federal government's insistence that black American citizens be afforded the same rights as their white counterparts. Their response was "Jim Crow", which was a euphemism for "separate, but equal", which was an oxymoron. Along with that was a conspiracy from the local level all the way up to the top of the state government to deny black citizens the right to vote. It was bad enough that it required a constitutional amendment (the 24th - ratified in 1964) to remove most of the impediments to voting.

The Civil Rights Movement under the guidance of Martin Luther King (who studied Ghandi) used non-violent protest and "civil disobedience" (sitting at "whites-only" lunch counters) to push the point that they were not breaking the law - they were only trying to assert their rights. For that, they were brutally suppressed. Attack dogs, water cannon, and beatings from the police, as well as brutal attacks from citizens did not dissuade them.
