"I urge those in our community to send a get well card to Jimmy Carter.....Just address it to Jimmy Carter, Plains, GA, 31780 -- It will get to him and his family and it will be appreciated.

While he maintains an office in Atlanta, President Carter lives about a block or two from the small post office in Plains.

When $8.5 Trillion is Chump Change

Three cheers for Reuters pointing out that the Pentagon can’t explain what it did with $8.5 trillion that taxpayers gave it between 1996 and 2013.

If Hillary is allowed to get away with her private email server shaninigans, she will turn into America's worst nightmare.

It's just typical human behavior (most often seen in teenagers), if hillary gets away with her bullshit here, she'll just get worse, She'll think she can get away with murder and/or otherwise convince herself that she is untouchable and she'll double-down on her bad behavior as a public official.

Whether she gets away with it or is held fully accountable, hillary is done as a public servant.

Stock market down as China moves down?!: Washington$ doesn't have much incentive to act with Economic Patriotism.

Think about it. The 10%’rs who own 85% of the value of what is traded on the financial markets also owns our Washington politicians and dictate their behavior by giving them cash.

This blog will be my space to discuss the decline of America's media with a focus on cable and network news. Anyone who happens across this is welcome to comment and re-post with credit given. I love to engage with others who are saddened or angered by what's become of our daily & nightly newscasts.

If Black Lives Matter Was Truly A-Political And All About Parity and Justice, One Teensy Little Word Would've Done The Trick ---BLM "TOO"

I fear BLM is an Astro-Turf organization, much like what became of the aTea-Party movement. This has become a bogus political tool, almost right from the gates. Shame that they'd throw their fellow black Americans under the bus for personal engrandizement and enrichment. Bigger shame on the handlers who've corrupted and prostituted some sincere but unsophisticated young people for their own political purposes. But that's USA under Citizens United. Thanks, SCOTUS.

Aggression is a hysteric fit.

It might be caused by frustration, of course, but the point is - hysteria expresses itself through human behavior depending of what hormones are available. Uncontrollable crying fits happen in estrogen -rich bodies, while testosterone causes the same hysteria to express itself in uncontrollable aggression fits. And, of course, we have all seen infantile type hysteria expression in juvenile tantrums.
