I've decided to start a fundraising campaign to grow my blog. Here is the page for it on my site. I am using a patronage site called Patreon to collect and disburse funds.

Any and all contributions are welcome!

Thank you for your support.

Great blog, Rima! I'd throw some material support your way, however, unfortunately, I just don't have it. Thanks for all the links, too.

A backlash led by the G.O.P. would be a mistake. What’s to fear? A married same-sex couple with affordable insurance?

Have any of you seen other news pieces referencing this? If so, please let me know.

Thanks.
'An efficient solution to a historic drought, or an environmentally risky pact with the devil? That's the question being raised by critics about Californian farmers who irrigate their crops with waste water supplied by oil companies, in an arrangement slammed as dangerous by environmental campaigners.'

""We were terrified, even despite the fact that, as children, we didn't quite understand what was going on," she said. "At the last moment, the leader of the German soldiers got a phone call and that seems to have saved our lives. There weren't enough young men inside the church. We were just a few people. It wasn't worth wasting explosives on a bunch of old men, women and children. They took us out and led us to an elevated spot in town where they forced us to watch while they blew up each one of our homes. It was awful. Three days later, we came back to town, destroyed, and my parents and brothers picked up the charred remains of what had been our home, a beautiful home. I was left without a school and, even worse, without a future, without the possibility of an education."

"Why do they now want to do the same thing to my children and grandchildren? Justice, I only ask for justice," she says. "Write this down, please: Help us.""
