'The World Trade Center came down during the reign of George Bush,' Trump shouted during the argument. And he said the war in Iraq was a 'big fat mistake' during the bitter back and forth with Bush.

A lovely tribute! 
…”From our years together at the D.C. Circuit, we were best buddies," she wrote. "We disagreed now and then, but when I wrote for the Court and received a Scalia dissent, the opinion ultimately released was notably better than my initial circulation."
While she may have disagreed with him, Ginsburg acknowledged that Scalia "was eminently quotable, his pungent opinions so clearly stated that his words never slipped from the reader's grasp.”…”

Scalia and Ginsburg differed greatly in ideologies, but bonded over a shared love of the opera.

Experts guess that the costs of removing occupiers from the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in the eastern Oregon will reach into the millions of dollars — most of which will probably be absorbed by the federal government.

“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” ― John Adams
Introduction

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children!

Religion is an asylum of ignorance in which you are your own, willing jailer. The Golden Rule is the only "rule" humanity needs. All the superfluous, religious and secular dogma can be dumped. 

“Bitches get stuff done.” — Tina Fey

Fiscally conservative, socially liberal. For: Equality for all regardless of race, ethnicity,  gender, sexual orientations or religious affiliation.   Workfare, not welfare; taxpayer supported education, including university; universal healthcare; a living wage; job skills and apprenticeship programs;  separation of Church and State — to name a few. 

I deal in FACTS! If you are willfully ignorant or an extremist of any kind: Religious, political, social, educational,  environmental, etc.—you probably will not want to follow me or engage me in a debate! 

Designing Geek & Nerdy Prophead, Wonkette—with social skills. I do not suffer the willfully ignorant or fools gladly! 

“Chance favors the connected mind.” — Steven Johnson

Every day is Sunday; every day is Monday when you love your work and your avocations as I do. Savoring the moment is my daily quest.

I believe in a 2 State solution for Israel and the Palestinians, with democracy, liberty and equality under the law for all. Peace is simple. Stop Islamic terror! 

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”  — Martin Niemöller


For today’s world this could be rephrased: 

First they came for the other Muslim sects, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Muslim.

Then they came for the infidels, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not an infidel.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

The Gettysburg Address

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Abraham Lincoln

Skills
Research, writing, editing; photography, painting, graphics; cooking, wines, languages. I speak 4 languages well, several with native fluency and several others at the conversational level.
