Everybody remembers where they were on 9/11/01. Hopefully years can still pass before the quote itself becomes something cliche’ like “Oh, Im spiritual”. Whatever, the point is, on the day itself we were all wrapped up in questioning what was occuring and why it possibly was, before we realized how united we would become. But the whole world stopped. The whole world focused it’s attention one place. The whole world rallied around and for the United States. It was the day after, this day, that brought to the surface things more substantial than everything else: there seemed to be a shared pain. In the melting pot that is the U.S, the list of reasons to be divided is more exhaustive … Read More

CHENEY ON ‘FOX NEWS SUNDAY’ – FoxNews.com: ‘Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Friday said the Obama administration should be debriefing CIA interrogators about keeping the country safe rather than trying to punish them for doing their jobs. In an exclusive interview taped to air this weekend on ‘FOX News Sunday,’ Cheney called the Justice Department probe of interrogators an ‘outrageous political act’ that will do long-term damage to the United States’ capacity to protect the country. ‘We had a track record now of eight years of defending the nation against any further mass casualty attacks from al Qaeda. The approach of the Obama administration should be to come to those people who were involved in that policy and say, … Read More

‘And then there are the drug companies. A couple of months ago the Obama administration made a secret and extremely troubling deal with the drug industry’s lobbying arm, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America.

The White House, for its part, agreed not to seek additional savings from the drug companies over those 10 years. This resulted in big grins and high fives at the drug lobby. The White House was rolled. The deal meant that the government’s ability to use its enormous purchasing power to negotiate lower drug prices was off the table. … … Read More

Breaking News! This just in: scientist attributed to researching for/with National Geographic are now getting behind de-bunking Global Warming. (I refrain from putting quotes around it, though I apply that much wanna-be quality to the scare tactics it has ensued) Regardless, in the last days it has been noted by NG that maybe, actually…uh, Carbon Dioxide is really good for the planet! The increased temperature is actually beneficial to the growth and rejuvenation of land. Really, the trend we are now in is just part of the Natural Trend. ‘The majority of the warming is due to the earth’s tendency unrelated to human behavior.’ To further the explanation in laymen’s terms: CO2 produces heat. Heat holds moisture. Moisture makes rain. … Read More

Viewing with Soft Eyes

Simply see things without automatically passing judgment or opinion. Take it in, like landscape. People are as they are. People behave differently under different circumstances. Everyone is coming from a different perspective anyhow. We will never know the past experience of another fully. We each walk with our own story. I often say, ‘if I were born in India, I’d be Hindu; if I were born in China, I’d be Buddhist; if I were born in Iran, I’d be Muslim’ This is just the way it is sometimes. I can easily say, i do not like this person’s music style, I do not care for the way this person dresses, or I do not agree with their political opinion. But … Read More
