Another . . .

. . . room

Writing this letter
To tell you how much
That I think of you

Every light,
Every glimmer
And sparkle
Reminds me of you

In spectacular sunsets,
At the dusk of the day
Or the glorious morning
As the mist melts away
There your smile is

All your movements
Are poetry,
Gracefully pleasant to see
When combined with your wit
One is entertained consistently
How I wish you were,
Right now, here with me,
But wait . . .

Sometimes I'm so overwhelmingly
Consumed by these thoughts
And I wish I could hold you
So badly, so close
That I fail to remember
An obvious fact
You're not far, far away
Over land, over sea,
But just footsteps from me
In the very next room

Two. . .

. . . and a half years . . .


Seems to me, that for the two-plus years that the orange man has been the center of national attention, that our press (which, by the way we actually DO need to remain active and free) should have learned ways to better convey to the American public the character of this individual. At this writing, some outlets have improved in some ways; but how could they not, considering how ridiculous some of his antics have become.  My advice is, that when a statement is issued, (for example . . . "he blamed US policy -- not Putin -- for the dismal state of relations between the two countries. . ."[from https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/16/politics/donald-trump-putin-helsinki-summit/index.html])
for which an opportunity is not provided the press for questions, a note be made. The outrageous statement should then be questioned in the very next press conference, be it with a spokesperson or 45 himself. If (and this will most certainly be the case) a clear, logical answer is not provided, the question should be asked (not necessarily during the same press conference) each time the press has an opportunity to ask questions. When the spokespeople or 45 lose patience with hearing the same question and have still not provided a REAL answer, the reporter(s) must clearly and unequivocally explain that a proper answer has not, to date, been provided and that the American people demand as much.

In Response . . .

. . . to recent coverage of ejection of a news reporter from a press event for asking 'tough' questions and comments made by the 'team' in DC . . .


(from http://www.wiseoldsayings.com/respect-quotes/)
"Tolerance only for those who agree with you is no tolerance at all. "   
-Ray Davis

"Men are respectable only as they respect."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

“That you may retain your self-respect, it is better to displease the people by doing what you know is right, than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is wrong. " 
-William J. H. Boetcker

“One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say." 
-Bryant H. McGill

“Treat people the way you want to be treated. Talk to people the way you want to be talked to. Respect is earned, not given."
-Hussein Nishah

Informed . . .

(from https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/articles/2018-01-30/information-overload-exhausting-americans-survey-says)
"A 2018 Gallup survey in partnership with the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, a Miami-based non-profit that supports journalism, reports that 58 percent of respondents say staying well informed is difficult, while only 38 percent say they believe it's easy. . . "We are seeing people pulling back into their own little domains," Busteed says. "Seven out of of 10 Americans share articles only with people that they feel are like-minded. We have all these different sources of information out there but people are retrenching into their own social networks.". . . When it comes to who is responsible for ensuring Americans do get access to an accurate and politically balanced understanding of the news, the public is divided: 48 percent say the news media should be up for this task, while same percentage say the responsibility rests with individuals. . ."

Not Good . . .


(from https://crooksandliars.com/2018/07/maddow-official-helsinki-video-and)
". . . The White House literally deleted this question and the corresponding answer from the official record:  Reuters reporter, Jeff Mason asked Putin: "Did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that?". . . Putin responded: “Yes, I did. Because he talked about bringing the U.S./Russia relationship back to normal,.". . . THE WHITE HOUSE IS LITERALLY TRYING TO ERASE HISTORY. . . As George Orwell said in his dystopian novel, 1984:  "The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes & ears. It was their final, most essential command" - Orwell, "1984". . . "

Next Time . . .


. . . you see a whacked-out meme on FB (or elsewhere on the web), spouting hate or (what seem to be) extremely aggravating 'facts' about a population of which you know very little (or possibly nothing), PLEASE do not post it (or re-tweet, or email all your friends). Instead, do some research. 
(One option is https://www.snopes.com/ - but I would recommend looking at two or three in addition). You may just find that the meme that so stirred your emotions actually contained false information. Plus, you may actually learn something.

The Party . . .

(from 1984 by George Orwell)
" . . If there was hope, it must lie in the proles, because only there, in those swarming disregarded masses, eighty-five per cent of the population of Oceania, could the force to destroy the Party ever be generated. the Party could not be overthrown from within. Its enemies, if it had any enemies, had no way of coming together or even of identifying one another. Even if the legendary Brotherhood existed, as just possibly it might, it was inconceivable that its members could ever assemble in larger numbers than twos and threes. Rebellion meant a look in the eyes, an inflection of the voice; at the most, an occasional whispered word. But the proles, if only they could somehow become conscious of their own strength, would have no need to conspire. They needed only to rise up and shake themselves like a horse shaking off flies. If they chose they could blow the Party to pieces tomorrow morning. Surely sooner or later it must occur to them to do it? And yet - !. . . "

Dear . . .


. . . Elected Official,

Do you still doubt the efficacy of invoking the 25th Amendment of the Constitution, or have you grown too accustomed to such behavior from elected officials?


Donald J. Trump✔@realDonaldTrump
The Fake News Media wants so badly to see a major confrontation with Russia, even a confrontation that could lead to war. They are pushing so recklessly hard and hate the fact that I’ll probably have a good relationship with Putin. We are doing MUCH better than any other country!
6:59 AM - Jul 19, 2018

Donald J. Trump✔@realDonaldTrump
The Fake News Media is going Crazy! They make up stories without any backup, sources or proof. Many of the stories written about me, and the good people surrounding me, are total fiction. Problem is, when you complain you just give them more publicity. But I’ll complain anyway!
6:37 AM - Jul 19, 2018
Donald J. Trump✔@realDonaldTrump
The Summit with Russia was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media. I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed, including stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear........
9:24 AM - Jul 19, 2018
Donald J. Trump✔@realDonaldTrump
....proliferation, cyber attacks, trade, Ukraine, Middle East peace, North Korea and more. There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems...but they can ALL be solved!
9:30 AM - Jul 19, 2018

Nearly 800 mental health professionals have joined a coalition asserting that they are so alarmed by Trump’s mental health that they feel a duty to warn the public.  (Jonathan Ernst / Reuters)


Please do something to rid our nation of this problem.

Careful . . .

Those nasty memes again!

I assure you that I am in neither political 'camp' but I am a great fan of the facts. Regarding the one tying Hillary Clinton to Russia through uranium, I would suggest anyone trying to make a point should refrain from using the Trump playbook, because that is one source that contains a dearth of factual information.

( from https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/hillary-clinton-uranium-russia-deal/)
". . . Among the ways these accusations stray from the facts is in attributing a power of veto or approval to Secretary Clinton that she simply did not have. Clinton was one of nine cabinet members and department heads that sit on the CFIUS, and the secretary of the treasury is its chairperson. CFIUS members are collectively charged with evaluating proposed foreign acquisitions for potential national security issues, then turning their findings over to the president. By law, the committee can’t veto a transaction; only the president can.

All nine federal agencies were required to approve the Uranium One transaction before it could go forward. According to The New York Times, Clinton may not have even directly participated in the decision. Then-Assistant Secretary of State Jose Fernandez, whose job it was to represent the State Dept. on CFIUS, said Clinton “never intervened” in committee matters. Clinton herself has said she wasn’t personally involved. . ."

Give me . . .



(from https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/24-hours-later-trump-claims-he-misspoke-helsinki-meant-say-n892166)
". . . Trump attempted on Tuesday to clarify his widely criticized comments in Helsinki, saying that he had misspoken when he said a day earlier that he did not see why Russia would have meddled in the election. Trump said Tuesday he meant to say he did not see any reason why it wouldn't have been Russia that interfered. . ."

If You . . .


. . . Didn't see it coming?
. . . Then you're blind

It was right before your eyes
For such a very long, long time
But instead of truth and right
You chose ambition and your climb

Do you fear things that could happen
To your plan if truth be told?
You should fear, the more, disaster imminent
As this thing goes uncontrolled

You dismissed and rationalized, to date,
Devastation undertaken
Acting like a schoolboy
Whose team victory's been shaken

Now the world has seen the impotence
Clearly present, still ignored,
Of one we've place in charge of all
Who has given us our reward

So what to do now?
Clearly this situation we must improve,
If we are to remain a noble state
This aberration must be removed

Water . . .

(https://www.nrdc.org/onearth/water-human-right)
". . . The United States and 40 other countries abstained from the U.N. vote to recognize access to water as a human right (in 2016). . . Human rights come in many forms; they aren’t all prohibitions hammered into the stone tablet of the Bill of Rights. Americans tend to talk about only this kind of right, though. For this, I blame Thomas Jefferson. . . We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. . . Jefferson’s passage is so beautifully clear that it has come to define the word right in the American mind. But he is describing just one kind of right: the preexisting negative right. Preexisting because it doesn’t need a government to create it, and negative because it describes something the government cannot do: It cannot take the right away. Leave us alone to pursue happiness, Jefferson says, and we’ll be fine. Most of the rights in the Bill of Rights are corollaries to Jefferson’s description, but the Bill doesn’t ever claim to be a complete and exclusive list of human rights. . ."
