"Good Night Moon" - click title for "The MMTO Sky Camera"

Tonight, December 5th of the year 2010 it is a New Moon.

The future of the USA depends of 'reason' and 'truth,' not, pretense and ATTITUDE.

The only thing the GOP has going for it right now is ATTITUDE and a really nasty one, too.

I am been involved in seeking equality and justice for most of my life.  I have been involved in petitioning government on a regular basis since about 1983.  Never have I witnessed such destruction of decency and the willingness to destroy the fabric of the USA as I have within the last decade. 

I am all for good government and I hope the 118 new House members are 'dreams come true.'  They will have a chance to prove how benevolent they can be to their fellow citizens.  But, if they are bigots or clowns for Murdoch or rigid in their willingness to legislate to the detriment of this country they will have done nothing but added to the misfits of the GOP and enforced the rest of us to believe their is sincerely no hope for conservatives in a meaningful way.  

Then and only then will I be more than willing to admit the best path for the country is State's Rights over and above the need for a strong federal government.  At least we'll be rid of them with plenty of time to prepare for LOCAL ECONOMIES and strong local governments.  

The Tea Party has a long, long way to go to ever win over my confidence.  Long way.

John McCain has to be the poorest excuse for Right Wing Politics I have witnessed in recent days.

 John McCain stated DADT has to be left in place because the USA military is all volunteer and there are 'Service Leaders' that have reservations regarding 'the preference' of those on 'the front lines' of the military.

Basically, Senator McCain has 'sold out' to the Right Wing Extremists that are attempting to prevent repeal of the provision in hopes the GOP will retake the Senate and Executive Branch to continue a march to a 'Christian State.'  

He believes 'the front lines' are an exclusive club where they can set their own rules above what the Joint Chiefs state.  This is common of the Bush Era military directives.  During the Bush White House the Joint Chiefs were nobody and it was only 'the commanders' on the ground that mattered.  Commanders on the ground, while important to the battlefield, do not necessary see the entire picture of all the branches of the service, nor how 'cohesion' with other branches makes for a better fighting force.

I don't believe any soldier should be put in harms way when it can be avoided, but, I also believe soldiers that have 'minority sexual identities' should receive respect for who they are and the quality of performance they bring to their unites on the battlefield.  DADT is a disrespectful directive DESIGNED to enforce Christian values above all others through oppression of mutual respect and understanding.  It is beyond my imagination to believe John McCain can actually seek to demoralize the words of Admiral Mullen when he has the best interest of the soldiers and country in mind.  Who does McCain think he is?  The bigotry has got to stop.  Just that simple. 

MELANIE NATHAN – Dec 04-2010 -  Don’t Ask As Don’t Tell (DADT) struggles for its imperative repeal in  Senate Debates this week, Senators are reaching out across the country to rally support  in the hope that constituents can influence Republican  die-hard obstructionists. Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont sent an e-mail, statement to constituents today, and it cannot be more aptly stated....

...This week, the Pentagon published a report supporting the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” — giving us even more momentum in this fight.  The report clearly shows that repeal would not jeopardize our national security, and that the vast majority of our military personnel is ready to do away with this discriminatory policy.
Some of my Republican colleagues dismiss efforts to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” claiming that calls to end the policy are coming only from politicians and not from within the military itself. Those claims are laughable. Is it really any surprise that members of the military, who are targeted by this discrimination and are legally barred from being honest about who they are, might refrain from speaking out?...

The Palin Children are really polite and very cute children, this is just the picture accompanying the article.

I think Sarah Palin has been terribly used by the GOP while they are attempting to discard her.  I have stated for years now that she was never well managed as a political contender, but, more or less treated as a 'magnet' to the candidates.  Somehow she attracts women that don't find empowerment in they way they seek it otherwise.  If she is really sincere about her future in serving the people of the country in some capacity she is going about it the wrong way.  Oh, it seems correct, because, they have had a 'good run at it,' and the USA's conservatives were looking for 'a star' to attach themselves to, but, as for Sarah.

She needs to step back from the brink and while I admire her bravery in being willing to 'take on' the 'blue bloods' she needs to consult and seek advise from other 'GOP Discards' such as David Frum.

Murdoch is not helping Sarah.  She may like the money no different than Huckabee, but, it isn't going to make for 'good politics' in the long run.

They are rude, crude, uncaring and irreverent to anything other than their 'ideas' of 'Father/Mother Knows Best.'

Paternalistic?  You betcha.  How does the word "Omnipotent" fit them?  More than appropriate, I think.

Fort Worth Star-Telegram

...But Texas' senior senator -- once the most popular Republican in the state in terms of voter support -- has a target on her back if she does run, put there by the increasingly influential and conservative Tea Party grassroots movement.
"She personifies everything that the Tea Party is fighting," said Konni Burton, a member of the Northeast Tarrant Tea Party steering committee. "She is a Republican, but when you check her votes on many issues, they are not ones that conservatives are happy with."
Hutchison hasn't said whether she'll retire or seek re-election in 2012, but several prominent Texans -- including Republicans such as former Secretary of State Roger Williams and Railroad Commissioners Michael Williams and Elizabeth Ames Jones, along with Democratic former Comptroller John Sharp -- have long said they plan to run.... 

Maine Republicans Adopt Tea Party Platform  (click here)

...The official platform for the Republican Party of Maine is now a mix of right-wing fringe policies, libertarian buzzwords and outright conspiracy theories.
The document calls for the elimination of the Department of Education and the Federal Reserve, demands an investigation of "collusion between government and industry in the global warming myth," suggests the adoption of "Austrian Economics," declares that "'Freedom of Religion' does not mean 'freedom from religion'" (which I guess makes atheism illegal), insists that "healthcare is not a right," calls for the abrogation of the "UN Treaty on Rights of the Child" and the "Law Of The Sea Treaty" and declares that we must resist "efforts to create a one world government."...

The extremist views are real. They aren't simply 'election slogans..'

They live the MYTHS created by the Murdochs of the world and invest their hearts and souls into it.  They fully expect to 'live the prophecy.'  What truly worries me is that the newly elected, 118 Tea Party House Members, have this umbilical cord to their 'core constituency' that will dictate their agenda and priorities.  They are acting on MYTHS and half-truths.  They have no confidence in their government and seek to destroy it while being prepared to be 'end game' survivors.  That isn't where House Representatives need to be putting their loyalties.  Murdoch has created, bought and sold these folks.  There is plenty to be concerned about. 

Analysis: Tea Party lawmakers must be willing to be unpopular  (click title to entry - thank you)

And all the Right Wing Media are in 'on it.' They all promote disaster of one kind or another and how to secure from it.

Rush Limbaugh

They have people so scared of their own shadow, they believe their only security is from 'the gods' of radio.   There is nothing wrong with many of the products they sell, but, there are nutrition supplements that dash conventional standards as inferior with an anti-government theme on many occasion.  It is really quite pathetic and I only can guess the monies that flow out of the hands of their audience.

 You know sometimes, the nutritional supplements seem better than health insurance and doctors.  

With the sincerest, heartfelt outreach that can be managed.

And what better place to keep your Gold but in a safe. "A Liberty Safe."

Is anyone understanding how Murdoch is SELLING a LIFESTYLE that enforces Treason and over throw of the government?

"The LAST Days" aren't necessary connected to the Biblical Apocalypse."  Defunding the government means nothing to these folks. 

Modern Day Emergency Measures - click title to entry - thank you.

Glenn Beck, (click here) and other radio hosts like Alex Jones of Infowars, have often warned of the importance of having sufficient food, and seed storage. The "Emergency Seed Bank" is the answer.

Now short of Natural Disasters that can be survived for a prolonged rescue attempt; where in the American lifestyle does anyone believe such measures are needed?
This is preparation for an economic collapse, so why not let it happen.  They probably already have their bunkers and guns.  Why not have it all the way they have prepared for it?  Yes?  Anarchy and treason.  What the heck.  The South shall rise again.

With Bernanke printing money faster than anyone can imagine spending it...

...the 'survivalists' that hang on every word of the Murdoch Media Circus are prepared for the collapse of the dollar.

Goldline is Glenn Beck's Choice for Gold  (click title to entry - thank you).

This isn't paranoya, it is real. 

Is my point clear.  Bernanke has over $11 Trillion US bonds and securities to dump newly minted money on and the folks that follow 'this philosophy' are looking forward to it.  The USA dollar loses value while Gold Futures go through the roof.  

So, when Republicans want to find an electorate when seeking the Presidency...

...ANYONE running for the office will appear far more reasonable and 'likeable' and a 'relief' than extremists that 'set the tone' for the imperiled GOP.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, (click title to entry - thank you) on the list of dark horse candidates of many Republicans eager for him to challenge President Obama in 2012, has rejected his mother's slap down of Sarah Palin, calling the Tea Party favorite's political skills "fantastic." In an obvious but diplomatic counter to former first lady Barbara Bush's wish that Palin would hole up in Alaska and not run for president, Bush heaped praise on the former Alaska governor who tops many 2012 presidential populatity polls...

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (click here) was on CNN Friday with John King and was asked that ever so popular question.
King said, “We always reach out to our friends on Twitter and Facebook while we’re having big guests on the program and we told them you were coming on to the program. Here’s what one of our Facebook fans, Kyle Hunter, asked me to ask. Would he endorse Palin for president if he does not run himself?”
Bush replied, “A, I’m not running and if Sarah Palin’s the nominee and if she’s running against Barack Obama, you betcha.”

Twice last week Representative Mike Pence, who has aspirations to the Presidency in 2012, stated he believed the USA debt should be capped at 20% unless AT WAR.


So, according the Senator from South Carolina, the USA will be 'at war' in perpetuity. 

As I said the first day I heard Pence make his statement on "Morning Joe" there will always be exceptions for Republicans to avoid FISCAL responsibility because they see the USA as the "Global Police" and chronically at war.

The Republicans have real issues with control and they over-reach no matter what the subject may be.  This is no exception.  We have witnessed over three decades of their over-reaching with the most extreme noted during The Bush Era.  Republicans have no desire to be Fiscally Responsible unless it serves their political purposes and ambitions for rhetorical rants.

It is far easier to be 'scared' with a gun draw all the time, then to seek peace and assume that posture.  We are not AT WAR with any sovereign nation and never will be unless Republicans do their usual war dance for purposes of wealth.

On "Parker-Spitzer" Senator Lindsey Graham stated he thought it best to be in Afghanistan in perpetuity.

"The USA needs to be in Afghanistan in perpetuity." (click title to entry - thank you)

Sen. Graham: No Quick End To "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"  (click here)

It’s unfortunate (click here) that the Republicans are content on disparaging members of the military solely based on their preference of who they choose to go to bed with.  There is simply no logic to this and you’d think that in the 21st century we’d have advanced beyond such archaic “bogeymen” as homosexuals.  As I’ve pointed out before, they’ve always been in the military and served as honorably as anyone else.  I still have yet to hear a valid argument as to why they should have to continue to hide in the shadows.
Regarding the tax cuts, I agree with Graham.  Either extend the  Bush tax cuts for everyone or extend them for no one.  The class warfare needs to stop.

Lindsay Grahma is typical of Republicans.  They are scared of their own shadow and need to control every aspect of life including the lives of all other people. 

Republicans never trust a government to do the best for their people because they are too coward to INSURE their own safety at the expense of other Americans, American treasure and the lives and sovereignty of other citizens and their governments.
It's Sunday Night

"Survival of the Fittest" by Mobb Deep

Yeah.. sendin this one out.. to my man Killa B
No doubt indeed.. without weed.. knowhatI'msayin?
That old real shit..


There's a war goin on outside, no man is safe from
You could run but you can't hide forever
from these, streets, that we done took
You walkin witcha head down scared to look
You shook, cause ain't no such things as halfway crooks
They never around when the beef cooks in my part of town
It's similar to Vietnam
Now we all grown up and old, and beyond the cop's control
They better have the riot gear ready
Tryin to bag me and get rocked steady
by the mac one-double, I'll cut you
and leave you with not much to go home wit
My skin is thick, cause I be up in the mix of action
if I'm not at home, puffin lye relaxin
New York got a nigga depressed
So I wear a slug-proof underneath my Guess
God bless my soul, before I put my foot down and begin to stroll
And to the drama I built, and all unfinished beef
You will soon be killed, put us together
It's like mixin vodka and milk
I'm goin out blastin, takin my enemies with me
and if not, they scarred, so they will never forget me
Lord forgive me the Hennesey got me not knowin how to act
I'm fallin and I can't turn back
or maybe it's the words from my man Killa Black
that I can't say so it's left a untold fact, until my death
My goal's to stay alive
Survival of the fit only the strong survive

[Chorus: Mobb Deep]

Yo, yo
We livin this til the day that we die
Survival of the fit only the strong survive
(We still livin it)
We livin this til the day that we die
Survival of the fit only the strong survive
(Thug life, we still livin it)
We livin this til the day that we die
Survival of the fit only the strong survive
(We still livin it)
We livin this til the day that we die
(we livin this til the day that we die)
Survival of the fit only the strong survive
(survival of the fit only the strong..)


I'm trapped, in between two worlds, tryin to get dough y'know
When the dough get low the jewels go, but never that
As long as fiends smoke crack
I'll be on the block hustlin countin my stacks
No doubt, watchin my back and proceed with caution
Five-oh lurkin, no time to get lost in -- the system
Niggaz usin fake names to get out quick
My brother did it and got bagged with two ounces
I-llegal world where squads hit the block hard
Ask my man Twin when he got bagged, that fucked me up God
But shit happens for a reason
You find out who's your true peoples when you're upstate bleedin
You can't find a shorty to troop your bid witchu
Hit wit a 2 to 4 it's difficult
Wild on the streets I try to maintain
Tight with my loot, cause hoes like to run game
Some niggaz like to trick but I ain't wit that trickin shit
I'm like a Jew, savin dough so I can big whip
Pushin a Lex, now I'm set, ready to jet
No matter how much loot I get I'm stayin in the projects, forever
Jakes on the blocks we out-clever
If beef, we never seperate and pull together
When worse comes to worse and my peoples come first
Try to react and get them motherfuckin feelings hurt
My crew's all about loot
Fuck lookin cute, I'm strictly Timb boots and army certified suits
Puffin L's, laid back, enjoyin the smell
In the Bridge gettin down it ain't hard to tell
You better realize

[Chorus: Mobb Deep]

We livin this til the day that we die
Survival of the fit only the strong survive
(We still livin it)
We livin this til the day that we die
Survival of the fit only the strong survive
(Thug life, we still livin it)
We livin this til the day that we die
Survival of the fit only the strong survive
(We still livin it)
We livin this til the day that we die
Survival of the fit only the strong survive
(Thug life, we still livin it)
(the strong survive)


Look in the eyes and get wise
Look alive, in ninety-five, word up
Hypnotic thug life, get that ass paralyzed
Knahmsayin? Mobb Deep and all that..

Le'ts see what time is it?

8:23 PM EST.

Had some company and lost track of time.

May as well get started.
