Carly Fiorina fails to register domain name, trolling ensues."
"Carly Fiorina, a former Hewlett-Packard CEO running for president, has no political experience. Campaigning for president will be a learning process, then, and the first lesson came Monday with the revelation that Fiorina neglected to nail down at least one obvious domain name ahead of her launch. As a result, the site carlyfiorina.org displays no information about Fiorina's vision for America, but rather thousands of mocking emoticons representing HP layoffs under her watch."

Where Is The Voice Of The NRA In The Death Of Freddy Brown?
American citizens who break no law apparently can be killed by police officers who don't understand the Second Amendment.
On April 12, 2015, Freddie Carlos Gray, Jr., a 25-year-old African-American man was arrested by the Baltimore Police. His crime? Carrying a legal pocket knife. A legal pocket knife. He died while in police custody.  The medical examiner ruled Gray's death a homicide. A friend of mine just now contacted the NRA via their e-mail contact form. If you are a member of the NRA, I suggest you do the same. Here is what my friend had to say to the NRA.
 
  "I have been a member of the NRA for two years. I joined in the wake of unconstitutional attempts to roll back our Second Amendment rights. I see that in Baltimore, police officers feel free to violate the Second Amendment rights of black men, beat them, and leave them to die. This is unconscionable.

"Freddie Gray was lawfully carrying, yet was arrested for doing so. I realize that he is not an appealing person for the NRA to defend because of his past, but he broke no law. If we do not speak up for everyone's rights, we speak up for no one's. I ask the NRA to speak up against the violation of Freddie Gray's Second Amendment rights, and further suggest that the NRA demand that police departments train their officers to recognize legal carry of weapons.

"It's not just about guns. As the NRA has said: it's about the right to bear arms."

Wayne LaPierre on Knife Rights
"The Second Amendment is not just about guns; it is about freedom, the freedom to own the 'arms' we choose to own. Whether guns or knives, our founding fathers clearly intended that 'the people' would be able to choose their arms freely and that this right would always be protected by the Second Amendment."

"Knives are man's most common tool, one ever present at hand of the brave men and women who wake up every morning and go to work to protect us. I am honored to autograph this knife that is widely used by our military in action across the globe. This knife represents the ideals of service to our country and constitution promoted by NRA's Life of Duty Program."

"Knife Rights is the Second Front in Defense of the Second Amendment. They are the premier grassroots organization protecting our right to own knives. Those who love freedom need Knife Rights, so please join me in supporting their mission."

The silence of the NRA about the arrest and death at the hands of the police of Freddie Gray speaks loudly.

God's Foreign Policy
"Islam is important to the United States, because it has compatible values."
Remember when Ronald Reagan called the proto-Taliban anti-Soviet Mujahedin in Afghanistan "freedom fighters?” Remember when evangelical Christians lobbied for the U.S. to support the Taliban in the 1980's? Remember when the U.S., in its fight with godless Communism, found in Islam valuable allies? Remember when we were cool with Islam?

A 1957 intelligence report by the NSA of its time, a high-level U.S. intelligence and security interagency group called the Operations Coordinating Board, stated:

  "Islam is important to the United States, because it has compatible values. The present division of the world into two camps is often represented as being along political lines, while the true division is between a society in which the individual is motivated by spiritual and ethical values and one in which he is the tool of a materialistic state. Islam and Christianity have a common spiritual base in the belief that a divine power governs and directs human life and aspirations while communism is purely atheistic materialism and is hostile to all revealed religion."

Ah, the good old days of the Cold War, when Islam was our friend.

The Case for Islamo-Christian Civilization by medievalist Richard Bulliet, details the long history of a close and harmonious relationship between Islam and Europe. "Bulliet suggests that Islamo-Christian is a more accurate term than Judeo-Christian to characterize the history of what we sometimes call 'Western civilization.'”

How likely is that to ever happen, I wonder.

Baltimore Police Primer on How To Start A Riot
Changing the conversation about police brutality.
When police are in the awkward position of having to explain why they brutalize and murder so many Black men, a sure fire way to change the conversation is to start a riot. The police in Baltimore show us how it's done..
1. Instead of giving peaceful protesters a wide berth to demonstrate, confront them with a phalanx of police in riot gear.
2. Instead of allowing school kids who are not even involved in the still peaceful protest to go home, force riders to get off their buses and prevent them from getting on other buses and trains.
3. The result is a large group of young people stranded together with no way to leave, facing off against a line of police, likely scared and unsure of what to expect.
4. Unsurprisingly, the situation will boil over and a faction of the crowd will take advantage of the situation to begin setting fires and looting.
That's how to start a riot and change the conversation about police brutality. Thanks Baltimore cops!
Could Monday's violence have been avoided if police officials made better decisions?

Is there any compelling reason why Baltimore shouldn't be put under UN control? Plainly the local authorities have lost the plot.

Undue Force: The Cost of Police Brutality in Baltimore
The police commissioner was shocked! Shocked! And yet the beatings - and the lawsuits - continued.
The city of Baltimore has paid about $5.7 million since 2011 over lawsuits claiming that police officers brazenly beat up alleged suspects.

"Over the past four years, more than 100 people have won court judgments or settlements related to allegations of brutality and civil rights violations. Victims include a 15-year-old boy riding a dirt bike, a 26-year-old pregnant accountant who had witnessed a beating, a 50-year-old woman selling church raffle tickets, a 65-year-old church deacon rolling a cigarette and an 87-year-old grandmother aiding her wounded grandson.

"Those cases detail a frightful human toll. Officers have battered dozens of residents who suffered broken bones — jaws, noses, arms, legs, ankles — head trauma, organ failure, and even death, coming during questionable arrests. Some residents were beaten while handcuffed; others were thrown to the pavement.

"And in almost every case, prosecutors or judges dismissed the charges against the victims — if charges were filed at all. In an incident that drew headlines recently, charges against a South Baltimore man were dropped after a video showed an officer repeatedly punching him — a beating that led the police commissioner to say he was 'shocked.'

"Such beatings, in which the victims are most often African-Americans, carry a hefty cost. They can poison relationships between police and the community, limiting cooperation in the fight against crime, the mayor and police officials say. They also divert money in the city budget — the $5.7 million in taxpayer funds paid out since January 2011 would cover the price of a state-of-the-art rec center or renovations at more than 30 playgrounds. And that doesn't count the $5.8 million spent by the city on legal fees to defend these claims brought against police."

David Simon and DA Mosby explained how this works. the "rough ride" or "the bounce" means they cuff and shackle you, dump you in without restraints, then drive like hell. That's how Freddie Gray was killed: his neck was broken when he got thrown into an exposed fitting in the van.

The Lawlessness And Brutality Of The Baltimore Police
The elephant in the room that conservatives don't talk about...
"Over the seven years that ended in 2011, at least 55 of Baltimore’s police officers were arrested.

​"Baltimore police officers regularly use erratic driving with suspects deprived of seat belts to inflict unlawful, extrajudicial punishment on people in their custody.

"The city paid out almost $6 million in police brutality lawsuits over just a few years–and the victims included the elderly, kids, pregnant women, and animals.

"The FBI caught 51 Baltimore police officers in a scheme that resulted in at least 12 extortion convictions.

"Baltimore police lost a 2010 lawsuit after plaintiffs proved a pattern of police violating the Constitutional rights of residents."

"Whole books could be written about additional, documented abuses by Baltimore police alone. The evidence is overwhelming. Where is movement conservatism's response to that disorder? For the sake of argument, let's imagine that the lawlessness and brutality of the Baltimore police had nothing to do with the city's riots. There is still no excuse for a movement that perennially ignores the decades-old scandal of our criminal justice system. If public school teachers or community organizers behaved as badly, the outrage on AM radio and Fox News would be constant. Yet police abuses as numerous and egregious as what the Baltimore Sun documented in this stellar investigation garnered orders of magnitude less coverage and outrage from conservatives than James O'Keefe stinging ACORN."

There is overwhelming evidence of widespread civil-rights violations and unlawful brutality. Yet the movement's reflex is still to ignore or deny the problem.

Hungry Sea Lion Pups Hunting Streets of San Francisco For Food
Welcome to the new normal.
On Wednesday, the US Senate "rejected the scientific consensus that humans are causing climate change, days after NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration declared 2014 the hottest year ever recorded on Earth." [1]

In a stunning and saddening rebuke to these intentionally ignorant Senators, starving sea lion pups are leaving the ocean and hunting for food in the city streets of San Francisco.

"1,800 or more California sea lion pups...have been stranded along the coast of California in the first four months of 2015 year because of a drastically warming ocean and a dwindling food supply, according to a March study released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

"'In the first four months of 2015, we have rescued more animals than we rescued during the entirety of 2014,' said Dr. Shawn Johnson, the [marine] center's chief veterinarian. 'What’s scary is that we don't know when this will end. This could be the new normal—a changed environment that we're dealing with now.'" [2]

Warrants Out Now For Every Cop Involved In Freddy Grey''s Murder
"'Among the thousands of fatal shootings at the hands of police since 2005,' notes the Washington Post in a recent look at police violence, 'only 54 officers have been charged.'” Add six more.

"Gray was wrongly detained by police and fatally injured under their care. Indeed, the six officers—Officer Caesar Goodson Jr., Officer William Porter, Lt. Brian Rice, Officer Edward Nero, Officer Garrett Miller, and Sgt. Alicia White—knew Gray needed medical help, knew he could die or be seriously injured, and chose not to act..."

Murderers all, and now they will stand trial for it. Maybe riots do matter.
On Friday morning, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced the results of Freddie Gray’s autopsy. The report is clear. His fatal neck injury—a nearly severed spine—was the result of being handcuffed but not fully secured in the police wagon. Specifically, Gray was bound by his wrists and ankles and left...

Sadashiva  | Syntropia
from Another Side of the Sky (an on-going project)
There is a tradition of teaching the tabla, an Indian percussion instrument, through the vocalization of a set of syllables that represent every sound of the drum. Three of these mnemonic vocalizations are used in this song: dhaa, dhin, and dhi. The title, Sadashiva, is derived from the association of the first two of these sounds with Shiva, the Hindu god of creation and destruction.

The video is edited from "Space and Shiva", produced by Euterpe Jones.
