A grim reminder about what is really at stake on the world stage, from a 1986 videogame, Chris Crawford's Balance of Power, and the most likely outcome from 'talking tough' or being quick to pull the trigger.

"So let us begin anew, remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate."

"Now the trumpet summons us again, not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need; not as a call to battle, though embattled we are; but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation" ... a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease and war itself."
-- John F. Kennedy, Inaugural Address

We apparently have two destroyers, armed with cruise missiles, moving into the Eastern Mediterranean.

No, Ivanka, 'wanting to be a force for good' is not the correct definition. And putting people out of work, taking away their insurance, workplace protections, and social programs isn't 'good' anything.

For the signal boost, especially since the rest of the media went for the okey-doke and reported it as 'repealing HB2.' (They may have updated their stories, but the 'repeal' headline showed up on my smartphone.)

Can we get some journalism going, please? This is even more embarrassing than when FOX News reported the wrong verdict in Hollingsworth v. Perry.

(Excerpted from the Congressional Record, October 6, 2011, and Senator Patrick Leahy's remarks on Senate Resolution 201, expressing the Senate's regret over the Chinese Exclusion Act.)

The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 explicitly banned Chinese immigrants from entering the United States for 10 years, and this ban was renewed and ultimately made permanent by Congress through subsequent enactments. In passing these laws, Congress failed to adhere to our Nation’s basic founding principles that all are created equal, and that all persons deserve basic human and civil rights. Instead, Congress allowed fear and ignorance to drive our Nation’s immigration policy and, for the first time, to exclude from our country a single group of people based solely on their race.

That was wrong. Ours in a Nation of immigrants and of equality and these laws offended both of those fundamental precepts of America.
