Drifting Through

Screen Shot 2017-07-09 at 4.54.35 PM“I was asleep before… that’s how we let it happen. They suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary.”

This is Offred’s stark warning.

A narration of regret.

Her name’s not really Offred. It’s Jane. Or June. Or something that I can’t remember because her name no longer matters. She is no longer a human with an identity, she is the property of Fred. And she is the main character in Hulu’s series The Handmaid’s Tale, based on the 1985 Margaret Atwood novel.

Offred is a Handmaid in Gilead, the religious fundamentalist reincarnation of the United States. After a terrorist attack and environmental disasters left the republic weakened, a strong-arm theocracy took hold. Patriarchal control was the new order. Women, no longer allowed to work, read, vote or hold property. Children, taken at will from parents who refuse to conform. Traitors, hung along the river, government spies around…

Happy Birthday Justice Kennedy … PLEASE DON’T LEAVE US!!!


Please, Dear Justice … I reiterate, please, don’t leave us!!
‘Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy – on July 23rd, he will celebrate his 81st birthday, ‘

Filosofa's Word

I have always believed that people should, if they wish to, be able to retire while they still have enough time and energy to do some of the things they always wanted to, whether it be to travel, take up golf, write their memoirs, garden, or just spend more time with their family.  I was fortunate to be able to retire early, actually did not have much choice, but it has worked out well for me and the family.  That said, here I am about to advocate that an 81-year-old man stay on the job for at least another 4 years!

Critical Analysis Of US President’s Presence At G20 Summit Video Has Gone Viral


Just watched this video analysis on Twitter! Brutal, right on target analysis on the G20 which became the G19 … a ‘must watch’!

I concur with Mr. Ulmann’s analysis.

President Trump has been declaring this trip as a total success, but he and his surrogates are solo mio on this evaluation. Any objective study of this event, would depict the Russian President Vladimir Putin as having succeeded beyond what even he had expected. The Syrian agreement reached between the US and Russia is a major win for Russia but I’ll be blogging about this later. It has become obvious that the president’s confrontation with the Russian leader about its interference into the 2016 US presidential elections, was perfunctory at best.

HAMBURG, GERMANY - JULY 7: German Chancellor Angela Merkel greets U.S. President Donald Trump upon his arrival for the first day of the G20 economic summit on July 7, 2017 in Hamburg, Germany. The G20 group of nations are meeting July 7-8 and major topics will include climate change and migration.
