About Me

Sigh.

Journal Archives

So secret

that Congressional staffers can't review the unadulterated bill and members of Congress can't even take NOTES?

Are we back to "national security, you can't view it" but "everybody knew about it already" again?

Please.

Not sure I can, actually

since the documents are too sealed for anyone to know, since you can't take notes, can't have any security violated, right? It's like asking if someone violated national secrets and then they can't defend themselves in court because it could disclose national secrets.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't and damned anyway because ... security.

If a trade deal

has the high-security of managing nuclear weapons talks, that tells me that there is danger, people don't want it to get out, and the people that don't want it to get out aren't dwellers on Main Street, or even First Street suburbia.

I mean really, nuclear weapons talks are less important with regards to security than discussions over a trade agreement?

Elected officials in Congress can see the text, but they have to go to the USTR, where they can look at the document, but they're not allowed to take notes, make copies or bring any staffers (such as experts on trade or any of the issues in the document) with them.


How stupid do the people that are behind the TPP think the American people are, exactly? Do we have "DUMB" inscribed on our foreheads?

The Wall Street and Political set has done SO MUCH for everyone but themselves for the last 30 years.

Poll: People who leak classified intelligence

to those unauthorized to view it are committing criminal acts and should be prosecuted.

If we as a people

are bound to be humane and enlightened, we must prosecute torturers.

It is not an if, it is a when.

How long does it take a turkey to thaw?

I bought one at around 2pm today. If I leave it in the microwave overnight will it be thawed enough to cook tomorrow? It's just a breast, not the whole thing.

My Hoot Owl is back!

It came back South again, and I heard the HOOt-HooT-Hoo again!

It's a lovely Great Horned Owl that I have the great pleasure of acting like an idiot at night when I hear it and hoot back at it .

I can only imagine that it has migrated to escape the cold another winter, because it is hooting it's little heart out.

I have a jury notice

that I can't get away from?

Anyone else get one?

Could we have something like a friend's list?

Where you can add the people you like that post, and can have them prioritized as your favorite?

It's just a suggestion. We have a block list, I'd like to have a "buddy" list.

Thank you for your consideration.

The South - I live here

I live in a state that can be characterized by racism, lynching, lobotomizing people for being homosexual just 24 years ago.

I feel it as much in MS, but it irritates me that there is this equating of LGBT Southern people as being so idiotic that we enjoy the abuse that homophobes regularly heap on people. We don't.

We simply like where we live, and forget it, if you don't like living in this particular climate, this particular state, or this particular are where your family lives.

We KNOW. We know the people that have suffered, have suffered ourselves, and believe me, we get it.
