Flag Lovers

I see so many U.S. Flag Code violations today and every day by those who claim to "love the flag" it makes my head spin.
I doubt if they've ever took the time to read it.

But by God don't you dare step on it or burn it.

This is what I fear:

Trump softens his tone, with the help of the corporate media, on Mexicans, Muslims, and women.

He runs more populist than Clinton on trade (jobs), big money in politics, and military foreign intervention. He already is starting to do this and with the the attention span of the American public being short as it is falls for it.

The media molded B grade actor Reagan into a President so I don't underestimate the power of the billionaire class messengers.

Are my fears justified?

Good news not making the 'news'

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the Obama Administration the least scandal ridden in modern history?

You'd never know it though.

Trump and Canada

We're heading to Alaska via British Columbia in our RV.
We have met many Canadians and almost everyone has brought up their disgust and fear of tRump.
One guy joked that the Canadians would have to build a wall to keep Americans out if he became Prez.
To a person they hate him.

This jackass is not liked or respected up here.

OBTW...We're in Dawson Creek now heading up the Alaskan Highway tomorrow. Windy, a little rainy, and warm here. Sporting our "Bernie 2016" bumper sticker all the way!

Working full-time on food stamps

I've paid attention to Senator Sanders for years

Always consistent.
And to see what the corporate TV is doing to him is very unfair.
Keeping him off the air early through middle campaign, I think intentionally.
The 1% has their 2 candidates.
It's a corrupt club and like the late great Carlin said, "we ain't in it".

To the point



Unfortunately the media bubble wants a coronation they chose a while ago...years ago.

Bernie has inconvenienced the mainstream's plan. They can't wait to be done with him. But they focus too much on the persona hence their fawning over HRC. They have to realize by now this isn't about Bernie per se?
It doesn't matter anymore about a personality. What has happened is that at least half of the Democratic Party has stood up and said we are sick of the status quo. We've been met by ridicule.

We'll see in November.

Death of environmentalists, leftists, and above all natives...

...in Honduras.

A Hillary State Department approved situation there, the effects of which are happening now.

It's the same war they called it "Manifest Destiny" in my school books in the 1960s and 1970s.
I was raised sanatized from this historic brutality against native cultures...but I found out.

There's a reason Howard Dean supports Hillary


Anybody with any sense would see he's extremely biased.

93 percent of the Great Barrier Reef now bleached

Another tipping point being past.
I fear for future generations like my grandkids.


‘And then we wept': Scientists say 93 percent of the Great Barrier Reef now bleached

Australia’s National Coral Bleaching Task Force has surveyed 911 coral reefs by air, and found at least some bleaching on 93 percent of them. The amount of damage varies from severe to light, but the bleaching was the worst in the reef’s remote northern sector — where virtually no reefs escaped it.
