The problem with progressive beliefs is they are not anchored in ANYTHING. A pier not moored to the shore is a barge, and drifts wherever the ocean takes it.

Progressives have made an angry, roiling ocean of themselves.

Sadly, the GOP has done the same. It would seem now is the time for sober, reasoned minds to prevail in the general discourse of American politics. And yet, we have Clinton and Trump leading the current discussion, and we're talking about the minority supporting the majority, fiscally, alongside the endorsement of a rapist.

Why are not more weeping alongside me as the Civil Society becomes a reality we remember, instead of live within?

That's because there's a progressive in Republican clothing. It's revealed that many of the people that disliked Obama, it wasn't about his policies it was about his skin color.

+Ted Cruz turned this angry man around, and did so by espousing free market Capitalism and Conservatism. This man worked hard to strike at the heart of Ted Cruz's economic and domestic political agenda, and was deflected, engaged, inspired and welcomed by Senator Cruz.

This man is a true leader, and, since this man is running, he should be our next President.

Ted Cruz has done nothing but what he promised when he went to Washington,to his own detriment. I'll vote for the MSN that keeps his word.

All representative republics eventually succumb to this. Corruption lies at the very core of humanity. The Civil Society requires that informed, enlightened citizens continuously educate themselves as a bulwark against the corruption we can reasonably expect to lie in the hearts of our representatives. Their being elected to represent our wishes in Government can make them believe that they are more prudential than those who elected them, giving them unto the belief that their right as representatives is to benefit from the power they wield for the "general welfare". We should expect, and require, that this behavior not only be unacceptable, but that they would hold themselves accountable as a representative body, in respect to their duty to the citizenry they represent. Sadly, this has not been the case since the Founding.

Representatives in Government who create and sustain a system of crony capitalism are to blame for America's current state of governmental and economic disarray. Those businesses wishing to take advantage of such a system are only reacting to that system's existence in the first place. This is an entirely predictable, and ironically, reasonable response to the stimulus provided by those cronyist representatives in Government sustaining such a system.

Would it were that Americans educate themselves as a defense against this abuse of power, what sort of society would the Great Civil Society be?

It is sad that so many can be convinced that they must be jealous of those who have, instead of those who take.
 
Over the years, I've latched on to several images that do a very good job of capturing the essence of an issue. Here are some of my favorites. The philoso-raptor explaining supply-side economics. T...

Yes; for "Void Open", I agree, this would be proper usage. For "We Care"...? Not so much.

How about "People". The color of your skin should not determine your fate. The only reason this is so is as a result of the decisions of sovereign individuals making poor choices. America's laws do not infringe on the rights of the individual to prosper; the discriminating choices of individuals employed in law enforcement (the radically gross minority), as well as individuals in their parental and personal choices.

"African American" actually belittles those who have suffered in America's struggle with slavery and discrimination. The misnomer itself should be seen as an insult to those who's roots in America, at the time, were involuntary, and whose roots today are much deeper, and more appropriately set in Liberty, should they be accepted, than they ever would have been in Africa, or wherever the individual may have hailed from.

Herman Cain is right; the sovereign individual is ultimately responsible for their life, not the Government or even society. America has made significant strides to leave the legacy of racist bigotry behind; individuals are now responsible for their behavior, not society. It is time ALL COMMUNITIES recognize this, and act accordingly.

See why race rhetoric is simply terrible? Segmenting society and pitting the segments against each other is a means of distraction, and helps Masterminds solidify power over the sovereign individual.

When authority, of any kind, finds it within their purview to control the speech and legal behavior of sovereign individuals, the fabric of the civil society has verily unraveled.

The distance between idiocy and a Turing passing AI is massive... The distance between the passing AI and world domination? Not so much!

One of our fighting ladies gets one last hoorah from the coast pilot taking her to her end.

Now That's Pretty Cool. This footage was taken by Clint Walker (no, not the actor), the pilot of both the ship and the Rc Corsair you're about to see in the video. This strangely weird combination might not be what you'd expect, but together makes for a pretty neat story and video.

We go to Mahoroba monthly. I'm a HUGE fan of their pizza bun, and I also like the sausage bun. My wife likes the Kobe Cream bun so much we named our dog Kobe. I know... Its weird. I don't really understand, either, but she's Chinese, and I'm still learning, even after 10 years together, about the cultural idiosyncrasies. So far we've had three dogs named after food. Anyway, the baked goods at this joint are awesome, and everyone should get up on this!

The roll selection wasn't very wide, but the rolls were very good, and the fish was fresh. The owner looked to have been a sushi chef for a long time, and most of what he was doing was from muscle memory, a sign of a seasoned veteran of the craft. All in all, a very enjoyable experience.

The pho tastes authentic. The wait staff are engaged, but they are not aware of the cultural hooks the traditional pho restaurant experience usually brings with it. The sushi is fresh and well made, and they regularly update their specials menu. If I could find time, I'd come here at least once a week!

Todd, the GM for the HI San Clemente, was VERY engaged with pretty much every part of my stay. I traveled on business. The network connectivity for the room I was in was excellent as far as speed, but the WIFI signal wasn't strong. It didn't impact my usage, but I was concerned about whether or not my smaller devices (phone, tablet) were going to be able to connect with their smaller antennae. No worries. Todd opened the restaurant last week. I had the pleasure of sitting at the bar and talking to him and some of his very interesting patrons last night, and let me tell you, I was very happy for the company. Todd seems genuinely thrilled to come to work. I don't know what sort of job a chain hotel GM is, but I can imagine its not very rewarding unless you get to know your guests. Todd showed he had the desire to not only engage you one on one, but also, he showed he had the "give a damn" attitude that I don't often see in my many travels. Good on ya, Todd. Your hotel was a gem and I WILL stay there again!
