Announcement … 

  ~~May 29, 2015~~

“It Is What It Is” hasn’t been fully operational for the last two days.

Seems there’s some sort of issue between Google Chrome & Microsoft. I took my desktop to the store three times yesterday. Left it there the last time. Still haven’t heard from them. 

I have tried using my laptop. It’s slow as molasses and it’s terribly aggravating! 

Seems that the “powers that be” want me to slow down and take a brake. Not a happy place to be … for me. 

I’m writing this using my cellphone.   

Hope to get this resolved ASAP and be back to my usual routine. 

In the meantime, will try staying up to date and reblog interesting & informative posts.

Have a wonderful weekend!! 

We ALL are ONE!!

Jeb Bush and Brotherly Love

28 May 2015

Jeb Bush has performed a valuable service with his recent missteps and flubs, he’s reminded the world of the baggage he willingly carries. I’m not tarring him with the same brush as George W. Bush just because they are brothers. Jeb has voluntarily staffed his foreign policy team with 17 people from his brother’s administration. (This is out of a foreign policy team of 21, mind you.)

The Latest Update on Florida’s Medical Marijuana

Dr. Rex:

Let’s get this done!

Originally posted on Sunshinebright:


Medical marijuana has been one of the most contentious topics in the news these past couple of years.

State legislators can pass laws regarding “legalizing” this plant, but our federal government still considers it an illegal drug, and possession and/or use of it can still cause arrest, trials in court, and jail time for those persons caught in this illegal act by federal authorities.

In Florida, the legislature passed a bill in 2014, legalizing medical marijuana, in the hopes of avoiding a state constitutional amendment in the next election in 2016.  There are contents in the bill that caused a legal battle, setting back the activation of the new law.  (Please see my other posts about Florida medical marijuana here and here and here.)

Splashed over many headlines today, May 28th, 2015, is the announcement that Florida Administrative Hearings Judge Watkins, rejected claims by an Orange…

He also is accused of lying about the withdrawals to the FBI. Both counts carry up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Editor of Leading Conservative Magazine Declares That “Some Black Lives Don’t Matter” to Activists

Dr. Rex:

Totally shameful …. Karma will come for you sometime!!

Mother Jones

Rich Lowry, editor of National Review magazine, has a plan for restoring stability to America’s currently troubled inner cities: Arrest and imprison more black people. It’s basically a long-running conservative argument, but can we get real for a minute about how he’s making it?

Here’s the profoundly cynical and callous way that he’s decided to tweak some social media language to argue in Politico that the #BlackLivesMatter movement is “a lie.” Its supporters, he suggests, are opportunistically anti-police and don’t otherwise care about inner city deaths that don’t make national news:

That high-octane trolling is accompanied by an equally cynical take on the underlying problem. Baltimore reportedly saw an uptick in murders in recent weeks, which Lowry blames on police “shrinking from doing their job” in the wake of upheaval over Freddie Gray’s death in police custody. The city’s “dangerous, overwhelmingly black neighborhoods,” he writes…
