Good afternoon fellow #gulliminati   on this rainy #seagullbuttsaturday  in Boston.  As you see,  Whitey Seagull's gang is hanging out on the remaining ice floes  of the Charles river.  They terrorize all passersby - even the Canada geese -  with threats of  mayhem,  #splatterhem  , and other kinds of hem.

President Obama will visit Kenya in July.  For those who believe he is a Kenyan Muslim,  this is just more proof of that.   After all,   why would a real American visit Kenya when she can see all the wildlife she wants in Florida.   This compares with a recent Republican candidate for president -  Rafael  Edward "Ted" Cruz.  Ted is a Cuban-American who was born in Calgary,  Canada.   Like Obama,  his mother was a white American.  His father was born in Cuba which is close to Kenya according to surveys of  Americans' geographical literacy.  The surveys also revealed that  both countries are pretty close to Afghanistan and are predominantly Muslim.  Both Cruz and Obama graduated from Harvard Law School which is located in Cambridge,  Massachusetts just across the river from Cambridge, England.   Cruz,  as a Senator from Texas,  currently receives health coverage through Obama care.   Clearly, they are both Kenyans.

Sir, please have a correct idea about the geographic location of the countries you have mentioned by simply looking at an Atlas.Cuba and Kenya cannot, by any stretch of imagination cannot be called close, and Afghanistan lies much farther between Pakistan (in Asia) and Middle East.Kenya lies in Africa, a different continent and is miles apart from Cuba.Cuba, also is not predominantly Muslim.

There are (at least)  two forms of freedom:  "freedom of/to" and "freedom from".    Sometimes these forms clash.    Personally,  I find the "freedom from"  form more useful:   Freedom from discrimination,  freedom from government intrusion,  freedom from crime and injury. In these  so-called  "freedom of"  religion states -  companies and individuals are allowed to discriminate if it "offends"  their religious feelings.  In these states,  companies can deny you jobs and service if  they disapprove of your lifestyle.   This goes against the spirit of civil rights laws.

I just read an article in the Cambridge Chronicle that they have filed for bankruptcy. If you don't have a car to get out to Ikea, Home Depot, Target, etc. then you don't have much choice. I live closer to Pill Hardware only buy small items. I only go to "economy" when I can't find what I want at Pill or Radio Shack. Most times I land up at Home Depot since they don't stock anything exotic. Pill, at least, still has some old stuff. Dickson Bros. in "The Square' is better. If you need weird stuff try Fran-Dan or Met. Pipe near Kendall.
