Reports of prisoner abuse at the US prison at Bagram air force base in Afghanistan come as no surprise. They are just the latest example of the world’s biggest bully behaving badly as usual.
As if that weren't enough, I'm reading how some 83 people, mostly civilians, were killed and over 50 injured in three drone attacks within 12 hours in Lataka, South Waziristan.
The first strike killed several suspected Taliban. Later, a second drone fired three missiles into a crowd of funeral mourners.
One of the wounded commented: "If the Taliban are bombing the mosques and America is bombing the funerals, what is the difference between them? We are stuck between Taliban and US attacks and when we are killed, not only no one cries for us, but also we are dubbed militants."
In the February 27, 2009, issue of Science on page 1164 begins an article on Chinese government attempts to adjust the male/female birth ratio. At this time, there are 120 boys born for every 100 girls. Female foeticide has replaced female infanticide as the technique best designed to dispose of unwanted females. Still, many baby girls are not taken to the doctor when they grow ill. There are still quasilegal ways to dispose of children.
I hypothesize that female infanticide and foeticide are patrifocal societal tools used to maintain a patrifocal frame. Males that don't fit the male patrifocal ideal don't achieve a wife and don't pass on ideal genes. Maintaining a high male/female birth ratio goes a long way toward encouraging long-term patrifocal societal stability.

Zhou Xiaochuan hooked by British:
LPAC, June 26, 2009 - -A Friday, June 26th slug published by the BBC, credits the clearly misinformed People’s Bank of China’s Zhou Xiaochuan with proposing that “An international monetary system dominated by a single currency has intensified the concentration of risk and the spread of the crisis.” The result of such an action would be the worst thing which China could do its itself and its people.
That terrible mistake, fortunately only proposed by the PBOC, but not yet implemented, is to be understood as a result of manipulation of relevant officials in China, Russia, and other nations by British sources. As a result of a lack of Eurasian and other nation’s ignorance of the character of the present, London-centered imperial monetarist system, the present generation of leading relevant officials throughout most of the world, they have been misled into a scheme designed to bring about the ruin of those duped into supporting such a scheme.

At the forefront of all human rights in the world today, before we could even be scandalised by how blatantly religious leaders speak against and bully gays, lesbians and transgenders, would be women rights. In a way these battles for recognition of the most basic human rights are very similar. The first step to address the issue is for religious leaders to change their discourse and embrace all human beings for who they are on an equal basis. Pope Benedict XVI, please lead the rest of Christianity into the new millennium, embrace all human rights! After all, Jesus Christ never talked against a third gender.
A recent article called “Ahmadinejad Won, Get Over It” by Flynt and Hillary Leverett is not the only source with serious credentials offering reasonable, non-sensational explanations for events around Iran’s presidential election.
Kaveh Afrasiabi, a scholar who once taught at Tehran University and is the author of several books, says many of the same things.
The situation in Iran is an equation with more than two sides:
1- Iranian people, fighting for their right.
2- Government, trying to push people back.
3- Reformists, trying to gain power in government. Aligned with people.
Rafsanjani, the representative of the pragmatist faction of the theocracy, trying to overthrow the supreme leader (aligned with people).

Some columns are easier to write than others.
This is one of them.
Providing all of my research were the "family values" Republicans.
This week, second term Gov. Mark Sanford of South Carolina disappeared for six days, leaving the state without a chief executive who could make decisions in an emergency. His Republican lieutenant governor didn't know where he was, and had not been given any authority to make decisions in his absence. The state police said they had not been informed. His wife told the Associated Press she didn't know where he was, wasn't worried about him, and thought he was "writing something and wanted some space to get away from the kids" over the Father's Day weekend. His senior aides said he was walking along the Appalachian Trail to "clear his head."
The New American Dream Interview - Iowan CARL OLSEN, fighting the drug war an Army of one
"I’ve never served in the military, but almost went to prison for resisting the draft. I showed up at the induction center with a Bible and said my religion does not allow me to kill people. Marijuana is my sacrament. God made it, wicked governments hate it. - I spent two years in prison, from 1984 to 1986, for unloading a boat with 20 tons of marijuana on board. - Legalization of drugs would seriously disrupt the flow of money from illegal markets to legal ones, and most of the financial industry has already tooled up for a lengthy drug war and the illegal profits that generates. Just think of Al Capone and the bootlegging industry. - If you want war, you keep them in the dark by keeping them drunk all the time. Alcohol promotes violence. Marijuana promotes peace."

"My aim in my life is to make pictures and drawings, as many and as well as I can; then at the end of my life, I hope to pass away, looking back with love and tender regret, and thinking, "Oh, the pictures I might have made!" ~ Letter to Theo van Gogh (Vincent's brother), November 19, 1883
I've always been crazy enough to live my dreams and I'm still doing it. I've always said YES to myself and not allowed myself to be controlled by fear. Now I'm living my ultimate dream of sharing and celebrating my thoughts and feelings as a writer and therapist ~ and making a difference in the process:
I've always wanted to make a difference, to share my truth and have it hit a chord that resonates with others.
I've always wanted to just be myself, as outrageous as that might be, and know that it was enough!
The Hidden Evil
Those who expose the financial elite typically receive character assassination from radio, TV, print media, official "experts," and "anti-hate" organizations. A combination of framings, murders, "accidents," and lawsuits may occur. "Educational" material is distributed to law enforcement to help them understand the "paranoid extremists" who believe that multinational corporations are installing a global dictatorship.
Sutton and Wood warned, "Anyone in the U.S. who promotes unwelcome news for the elite receives some unwelcome attention in return." This attention includes the use of experts, mainstream media, and anti-hate organizations, for well-coordinated character assassination.(*) According to author Perloff, a document released by the House Committee on Un-American Activities, on September 23, 1956 entitled, Propaganda and the Alert Citizen outlined the tactics reportedly used by the Establishment to discredit opposition.
February 3, 2014: Former Canadian Defense Minister, Paul Hellyer, on Russia Today’s program SophieCo, says that “[I’ve] been getting from various sources [that] there are about 80 different species and some of them look just like us and they could walk down the street and you wouldn’t know if you walked past one.”
