Some brilliant screenwriters and millionaire liberals ought to make the movie.

Tell a story of how the evil one percent's greed united all the
little people -- from the far right to the far left, east & west,
north & south. The story of how they rallied, and succeeded
in making America great again. All sorts of revolutions and
corporations falling greedy people losing haters being sucked
into the ground and the Little People WIN.

I have no idea how, but I know there are lots of brilliant
writers and thinkers out there. Movies can have a profound
social effect, or at the very least, can plant seeds of ideas.

one big difference unless it's my imagination between rail and pipeline

You can get a leak in a pipeline that goes on for years and
years undetected until one day you are taking a bath and
light a smoke and BOOM.

Now I realize that's hyperbole; of course you would taste
or smell something funny sooner. But probably not until
you had been drinking cooking and bathing in it for months.

A train accident is terrible and can be catastrophic of
course in a different way. But the danger is not hidden,
and the causes are not disputable.

I hate to have these horrible thoughts but there it
is; I do. I wish ill upon those who poison our planet.

May all of those who vote for this pipeline wake up
sick to death from the poisons they so love. May they
have flammable bath water, and inexplicable pox.

They think a little poison here, a little poison there,
no big deal because AMERICA! Yet a sizable portion of
humanity currently is ill from these toxins. Many have
lived their whole lives with environmentally caused,
crippling autoimmune disorders, cancers, and brain
disorders manifesting as mental illness.

Just as soldiers in Vietnam knew the agent orange
had made them sick -- these commercial poisons are
increasingly implicated in cancers, hormone dysfunction,
miscarriages and birth defects, autism spectrum, CFIDS
et al. And that's only the human population. All the
creatures who depend in the wild on air land and water..
poisoned. This can not go on.

Merle Haggard: ‘It’s Almost Criminal What They Do With Our President’


After being honored at the White House for his lifetime achievements in the performing arts and outstanding contributions to American culture, Merle Haggard is forming an opinion about President Barack Obama based on character, not political agenda. The 73-year-old country legend, who has actually visited the White House as a guest of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan in years past, made an appearance in Washington D.C. for the 33rd Annual Kennedy Center Honors. While there, he mingled with the President, the President’s wife and several other notable honorees.

“It was also nice to meet Obama and find him very different from the media makeout. It’s really almost criminal what they do with our President,” Haggard tells Rolling Stone. “There seems to be no shame or anything. They call him all kinds of names all day long, saying he’s doing certain things that he’s not. It’s just a big old political game that I don’t want to be part of. There are people spending their lives putting him down.”

“I’m sure some of it’s true and some of it’s not,” he continues. “I was very surprised to find the man very humble and he had a nice handshake. His wife was very cordial to the guests and especially me. They made a special effort to make me feel welcome. It was not at all the way the media described him to be.”

“He’s not conceited,” he adds. “He’s very humble about being the President of the United States, especially in comparison to some presidents we’ve had who come across like they don’t need anybody’s help. I think he knows he’s in over his head. Anybody with any sense who takes that job and thinks they can handle it must be an idiot.”

NM MVD says Navajo-only speakers are “illiterates” must learn English to obtain state ID card

MVD says Navajo-only speakers are “illiterates” must learn English to obtain state ID cards or license

New Mexico’s Motor Vehicle Department recently directed employees to stop assisting Navajo language speakers with applications for licenses and identification cards, dubbing them “illiterate” in an email directive to staff.

Acting on a tip from a citizen concerned about newly registered Navajo voters being denied access to identification cards necessary to vote, ProgressNowNM obtained a copy of a new MVD directive posted in a Northwest New Mexico office.

MVD email directive. Copied as posted in the office. (right side of the original was trimmed from the posting)

Saying, “We are not able to issue license (sic) for illiterates” MVD’s regional director tells staff to end the practice of assisting applicants with completing the state’s license or ID card forms.

But state law doesn’t have a language requirement for applications.

Watching the whole debate. I can't see how Rick Scott can possibly win.

He comes across so hollow. He is so creepy. He is lying
with every sentence. Crist is relaxed, warm, focused.

ALSO unlike many current Democratic candidates, Crist
did NOT run away from Obama. He praised him.

Scott is so weak, so creepy, so programmed, so unoriginal,
so medicated or else some kinda chip in the brain, a
real life whatchamacallit, manchurian candidate type.

Now on to Part Two.

If you have some experience with beloved pets who have vanished without a trace

It has been almost a month since I last saw my best cat.
I have cried so much that I busted my eyeballs, and the
sadness still won't go away.
The other cats remind me of him. One is lonely and lost without his brother.
I don't know if he left willingly, on an adventure.
I don't know if he is lost, or dead, or anything at all.

I've done about everything I can do except drive up and
down every street of every block within a 15 mile radius
calling his name until I am hoarse.

I'm not looking for sympathy especially anything that will
make me start crying again. But if you have gone through
this, your insights are welcome. I do believe everything is
ok, somehow; but emotionally I'm not there yet. These

emotions have been so powerful, it must be triggering
something else, other losses. I keep dreaming that I see
him, or that he walks in the door. I keep thinking that
I hear his very distinct little meow. He is the gentlest,
sweetest, most zen sort of cat. I have thought maybe
there are too many cats here for his taste, and he took
off, to get some space. I wish I knew. I am so sad but
sometimes when I think of him it's just a beautiful vision.

This is a picture of a cat that looks exactly like him.
Somebody else's lost cat.
