Soon almost everyone will be disenfranchised.
 
As far as I can tell just about everybody, regardless of political leanings, thinks Citizens United was an incredibly dangerous decision.

And I think the blurb is essentially correct.
Unless the campaign financing system is reformed, the U.S. Congress will become paid employees of the people who pay for their campaigns -- the billionaire class. Needless to say, not everyone on the Committee agreed....

It's been that way for some time now, actually before Citizen's United; they just don't have to pretend the crap table's not rigged any more...

"Balloons over Waikato"  New Zealand

Please share if you enjoy :-)

It was a stunning morning yesterday in Hamilton with the dawn fog really adding to the scene. It was well worth the 4.30am start to drive down to Hamilton and photograph the spectacle.

"So in an ordinary year, the highest high tides and lowest low tides occur during spring tides near the equinoxes. But every once in a while — in particular, once every 18 years — you not only get spring tides right at one of the equinoxes, you get it coincident with a perigee Moon, and hence you get the maximum of all possible tidal effects: a supertide!

And that’s when tidal flooding is most likely, and when this one French Abbey — Mount Saint-Michel — will flood like we just saw. Of course, the flipside of this is that in addition to the highest high tides, we also get the lowest low tides, and that’s spectacular in its own right!"

Once every 18 years, a French Abbey — Mount St.-Michel — becomes inaccessible, as the English Channel rises to such levels that the causeway that normally reaches it becomes engulfed by the surrounding waters. You might think this is due to the tides, where the Earth, Moon and Sun align, but then shouldn’t this happen twice a month, during the two Spring Tides? As it turns out, the effects are much more subtle, and involve the Moon’s elliptical orbit and the equinoxes as well, but when they all align, once every 18 years, a supertide is the result, and Mount St.-Michel becomes an island!
The highest high tides occur once every 18 years, and can lead to surprising floods. Here’s the science behind them.

It's unfortunate some cultures and civilizations get wiped out due to the evolution process. Certain governments are too greedy to protect the people who made history happen. Really sad.

Minimaliste, abstractiste. Photographie. Et tellement plus que cela.
Introduction
Astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson was asked by a reader of TIME magazine, "What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?" This is his answerhttp://youtu.be/9D05ej8u-gU

Interested in Art History, especially Post-Modernism but anything since the Industrial Revolution. Very eclectic interests and collection of music, also film.
Supporter of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

I really like the aesthetic of film. As such, you will sometimes see sloppy borders on my images - that is a real artifact of printing from film, using a filed negative carrier. I've done a handful of alternative and experimental techniques, including laser holography. 

I also know a bit about Horticulture. 
I've done a bit of silversmithing.

And a few other things. 
Guess that makes me a polymath.

Oh, and I have an irreverent streak. 
I am liable to post whatever strikes my fancy.
