Don’t let the republicans shift to something that was determined to be false and a lie years ago.

Another thing they claim is that the Clinton foundation got money on this deal.   That is totally false.  The person who donated to the foundation had already sold all his stocks and interests in the company.  So no the Clinton foundation never got a quid pro quo or put another way, they got no money for this deal.   Hugs

We all know the truth is money. The NRA spreads a ton of money to bribe congress. Hugs

How Creationism Taught Me Real Science 62 Plate Tectonics – YouTube

Filed under: Earth News, Facts, History, News, Reason — Scottie @ 11:17

I am posting this for people who want to learn and may not have known the information.   I learned about most of this stuff in school.  I am shocked to find a great number of people who did not know about plate tectonics or simply were never exposed to it.  Religion has done a hatchet job on kids educations and this is a good example where religion lies to advance their myth, at the expense of the facts and of the truth.    Hugs

(8) Trump’s “Condolences and Sympathies” Won’t Cut It | The Resistance with Keith Olbermann | GQ – YouTube

Filed under: Facts, News, Political, Reason — Scottie @ 20:35

I know many of my viewers do not like to watch videos.  I know that some feel it is not a good way to for a post to get information across.   Some people simply wont have the time to watch this video.   I understand.  However the video below says better than I can what is happening with guns in our country.  There is information I did not know about gun deaths in the video.   The video puts together a case against the “individual right to own all weapons” that some people think the second amendment gives them, with words from a chief justice of the supreme court.   Other than copying and writing  everything said in the video here, the video is the best way to express my self on this subject.   Thank you.  Hugs

Please read this cartoon, and think on the new tax plan being pushed by tRump

Filed under: Economics, Facts, News, Political, Reason — Scottie @ 13:37

Please realize again the tax package gives the most benefit to the wealthiest  individuals.   For example the estate tax.   There are three types of taxes you can pay: income taxinheritance tax and estate taxEstate tax is levied on what you pass on after your death. These items can include cash, retirement accounts, property and more. Currently, you don’t have to pay federal estate tax if the estate is less than $5.45 million.   Notice you have to have more than 5.45 Million for the tax to be a bother.  Do you have that much to worry about?   No , nor does most people.  But the wealthy want you to pay more tax or take cuts in government services so they can stash more money away.   Think people please, stop letting the wealthy convince you to keep giving them the free ride.   Hugs

Box Turtle Bulletin » Today In History, 1956: The Adjustment of Male Overt Homosexuals

I am grateful to Dr. Evelyn Hooker for the study she did and got the leaders of her craft to see that gay people are simply people.    I wish I had know of this study growing up.  Would have made a huge difference I think.  Hugs

(1) Response to Patrick Moore’s “What They Haven’t Told You about Climate Change” – YouTube

Filed under: Facts, Harm, History, Reason, Science — Scottie @ 10:54

I often get comments and see videos about the falsehood of climate change.  Even with the hurricanes we have been dealing with getting stronger and more dangerous, it is still denied the planet is heating up.  Sadly my own government is full to bursting with people who deny any part of climate change while most of the world knows it is settled science.  Hugs

(5) Islam – Behind the Veil – YouTube

Filed under: Children, Facts, Gender, Harm, Political, Questions, Reason, Religion, Sad — Scottie @ 13:09

This is graphic and horrifying because it shows the plight of women under fundamentalism Islam.  Make no mistake there are many religions where men feel they are so much better than women and have the right to rule them as they see fit.  IF the christian religions could get away with it they would also treat women in the most horrible ways.  We can see the way females are minimized in the Jewish religion and in the bible where it says women should be silent.  A great racket for men, to write the book that promotes them as superior so they can then point to the book and claim those superior rights.  Hugs

This is about terrorism and religion.  These things should be talked about.  They should have as a goal not just the prevention of the acts of terror but the ending the radicalization that makes some think hurting others is OK.  If they can’t separate the views of their religion from the needs of a civil society then they don’t get to freely express their religion.  That is not bigotry, that is a simple statement of your right to your belief doesn’t give you the right to ACT on that belief.  Hugs
