that Sirota piece is depressing since it's on the money

I get sad when I realize that those who call themselves Democrats, progressives or liberals are not necessarily smart. In fact most of them must be unable to....well, I hate sounding like an elitist.

But on each issue that the President is in the wrong you'd think more and more people would wise up. Instead they see the "Affordable Care Act" and they believe it's affordable. They can keep their kid on their policy for a few more years, which is nice since the kid can't afford it!! and you'd think they'd make the connection that it's not affordable!! and yet they insist it is because it says so, right in the title.

As Sirota says, the President says one thing, does the opposite and gets a pass on it by people who'd be screaming if a Bush did it. It's almost as if the policy doesn't matter!! I put exclamation marks because it's mind-blowing.

Anyway, thanks for the Sirota link. Now I can be bummed out in the privacy of my own home.

Climate Change and Wildfires

I'm reading, Hell On Earth, by David L. Porter.  It's a 2008 book that discusses how climate change has created the wildfire pandemic.  Exceedingly depressing but highly informative.

You go to your church and...

For the atheists in the crowd, don't miss this one:

So many wars have been fought in the name of religion, it's hard to understand just what is being preached in those holy halls. It seems to me religion does more to divide people than it does to bring them together.

So many wars have been fought over religion you really have to wonder what's being preached in those holy halls.  It seems to me religion does more to divide people than it does to bring them together.
