The Impossible Dream …

Simply amazing!! … ‘Richard Kiley, who sang the original in Man of La Mancha, and I find it the most moving and powerful …’
Is it impossible now?

Filosofa's Word

Yesterday, I posted the John Lennon song, Imagine, and most of you liked it and noted how wonderful it would be to live in the world of Lennon’s imagination.  Last night, our friend Nan made the following comment:

As much as I regret saying it, I fear his words will remain as “imagination” for the foreseeable future.
But it is nice to dream such a dream …

On reading her comment, another song immediately came to mind, and I share it with you today, for I think it is fitting for the moment.  There are many, many versions of this by a variety of singers (even Gomer Pyle did one!) but this is the man, Richard Kiley, who sang the original in Man of La Mancha, and I find it the most moving and powerful …

Trump ‘s Brett Kavanaugh Nomination As Good as an Attack on Women and LGBTQ Americans

… and the nominee is known!! I’ll let this post explain the many reasons that this nomination is more than many, many steps backwards!!
One of many … “Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is the most “self-serving” selection that Drumpf could have made to protect himself from a criminal investigation.”


Screen Shot 2018-07-09 at 6.36.44 PM.pngTo say that the  lives of Americans are at stake because of this nomination cannot be overstated.

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump tonight, the President who Russia helped elect,  nominated D.C. Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh — a stalwart right wing conservative who previously worked in the George W. Bush administration — hasn’t weighed in explicitly on high-profile issues related to LGBTQ nondiscrimination, and yet we must know that with the rabidly anti-LGBTQ Family Research Council lavishing praise on him, given their main agenda, this man is likely as anti-LGBTQ as one can get and hence a serious danger.

Kavanaugh’s nomination comes at a critical moment for the LGBTQ community: more Americans than ever before support ensuring LGBTQ people are treated fairly and equally under the law, and a growing number of court cases are affirming the importance of nondiscrimination protections.
