Profile Picture (if facebook existed on 9/12) #ReactionaryNationalism #FlagsAreDivisiveByDefinition My apologies for this perhaps tough observation. I don’t mean to judge anyone, just finally sharing my strong internal reaction to others’ external reactions to the tragedy in Paris a couple months ago. For me, seeing French flags all over facebook echoed the ubiquitous American flags leading up to the current wars [which created this tragedy]. I did feel this round was a bit more based […]

Kickstarting Syrian Refugees – Thought Experiment

KickstartSyriaRefugee

The United Nations and Obama ask for voluntary donations to help Syrian refugees on Kickstarter. Consider the ongoing wars which have fostered this situation, and how much they have cost. Would coalitions have waged these wars if they also required crowd-funding? Voluntary, direct dollar votes? #VoluntaryWorldPeace * This logic also applies to arming and training “moderates.”   Thought Experiment: What if governments did not exist tomorrow?…   What programs, roads, pipelines, or watchdogs would you […]

Oath Keeping Thoughts

OathKeepersArmFerguson

A thoughtful response to a March 2010 Mother Jones article, “Oath Keepers and the Age of Treason,” which has re-circulated as Oath Keepers appear in Ferguson. Key Personal Perspective/Bias, and Background… I remember vividly when a big 2010 Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) report titled “Rage on the Right” came out along side this Mother Jones (MJ) article. It was given great attention by all my regular media outlets of all stripes, mostly feeding fear […]

Guantanamo_diary

Despite all the depressing reality made tangible by his account, this man, his words, humor, and perspective are truly inspiring.   We spent almost two months of argumentation. “Bring me to the court, and I’ll answer all your questions,” I would tell the team. “There will be no court!” they would answer. “Are you a Mafia? You kidnap people, lock them up, and blackmail them,” I said. “You guys are a law enforcement problem,” said […]

Reagan: We’re In The Gulf For Oil

Reagan @UN, 1987: "For 40 years the United States has made it clear, its vital interest in the security of the Persian Gulf and the countries that border it. The oil reserves there are of strategic importance to the economies of the free world. We're committed to maintaining the free flow of this oil and to preventing the domination of the region by any hostile power. ... When the tension diminishes, so will our presence."

Times Which Were Perhaps More Honest Reagan at the United Nations, 1987: “For 40 years the United States has made it clear, its vital interest in the security of the Persian Gulf and the countries that border it. The oil reserves there are of strategic importance to the economies of the free world. We’re committed to maintaining the free flow of this oil and to preventing the domination of the region by any hostile power. […]
