Don't think I have the words right now that could convey the things I've been feeling about our society. So I'll just leave this here.

There are few words to express my sorrow about the events last night in Charleston, SC. As we all know by now, 9 people were killed at Emanuel AME Church also known as 'Mother Emmanuel'...
10 Facts About Historic “Mother” Emanuel AME Church And Its Pastor Clementa Pinckney
1) In 1816 Black members of Charleston’s Methodist Episcopal Church withdrew over disputed burial grounds and under the leadership of Morris Brown, formed a circuit of 3 churches of people of color affiliated with the newly established African Methodist Episcopal Church. Emanuel’s congregation grew out of the Hampstead Church, located at Reid and Hanover Streets.

2) In 1822 the church was investigated for its involvement with a planned slave revolt. Denmark Vesey, one of the church’s founders, had organized plans for a major slave uprising in Charleston. The plot was foiled by an informant, and Vesey was hanged, along with 36 enslaved people.

3) As a result of the revolt plot, Emanuel AME Church was burned, and laws were passed in a number of southern states restricting the movement of Black people.

4) Parishioners rebuilt the church after fire and worshipped there until 1834, when South Carolina outlawed all-Black churches.

5) The congregation had to continue worshipping underground until 1865, when the church formally reorganized. It was then that the name “Emanuel” ( meaning “God is with us”) was adopted.

Twelve Angry Men
Author: BobR    Date: 06/17/2015 13:08:22

Okay, so it's actually 11 men and 1 woman. Regardless, the clown car got yet another passenger yesterday with the announcement by professional narcissist Donald Trump that he is running for the Republican presidential nomination. It's gonna be yuuuUUUUuuuge. Of course - that's just the snark. He's already upheld the time-honored Republican candidate tradition of trying to appropriate music without asking permission from artists who just don't like them.

So if we now have an even dozen, who are the rest? Let's recap...

Good Morning.

Today is our 362nd day back in Iraq. While the date of our return is somewhat nebulous, I've been using June 19..so this Friday marks one year back at war.

Fortunately, there have been no new casualties in Iraq to report.

We find this morning's Cost of War passing through:

1, 621, 076, 150, 000 .00

This is the stub for today. I am sleep deprived from the weekend and am still catching up with life.

I heard something happened in NYC this weekend.

They say, whoever 'they' are, that people often hide a dark secret behind big talk or a big car. Men who drive a Hummer or an expensive sports car have uh, well let's just say they're not going to pull a wardrobe malfunction like LeBron James did recently. And men who continually speak of macho-ness while not being married, aren't really that macho. (wink, wink).

Good Morning.

By now you've heard about all of this, but I'll have a little background to start. Do any of you know what a "Quiver" is? It's a little pouch you wear over your opposite shoulder from your bow hand to carry all your arrows. (See: Legolas).

I really have little to say this morning. The GOP is crazy, as always and we are still treating Bernie Sanders like he is a fringe candidate.

American Taliban - Pt 3
Author: BobR    Date: 06/10/2015 13:48:41

Much has been written and said about the Islamic extremists in the Middle East, especially regarding their enforcement of religious law upon the citizenry. In many cases, this is done at knifepoint, by heavily armed zealots who use their religion as a tool to rule with impunity.

I've written previously about what I call the Christian Taliban here in the U.S. In most cases - we don't even have the excuse of being forced to abide by Christian "law" - we can vote. So how does this keep happening?
