Remember when you played on a swing as a kid? Remember the feeling of weightlessness at the top of a very high arc? Perhaps that's exactly where we are politically. It feels like there is no direction exactly because the extreme political swing to the right has reached its peak and no amount of political bribery or propaganda or even vote fixing with stop the swing back to Progressive values. Get ready for one hell of a fun ride to the Progressive side. In fact, let's push as hard as we can.

I just watched John McCain's speech (7-25-17). Inspirational advocacy for bi-partisanship. Facing death clarifies the mind, especially after a tumor has been removed. A rational Republican. I take that as a sign the pendulum is ready to swing in the opposite direction. And no, I am neither on or just off meds.

Being so angy you do nothing but spin and spit sparks won't help anyone fix anything. Being so cynical you see hopeless failure everywhere you look, won't save you or anyone else. Fatalistic nihilism has no evolutionary advantage, unless, of course, you want to take yourself out of the gene pool.

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
