~~March 30, 2015~~ 

It Is What It Is” has been nominated for the Blog Tour Award by an awesome blogger, Dear Kitty. Some blog.

~You can find her here~



Pass the award on to four other bloggers. Tell them the rules and a specific Monday to post. Answer four questions about your creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires you to do what you do.

Compose a one-time post on a specific Monday. Today is March 30, 3015. (date given by your nominator).

If you please, choose the next Monday …. which would be convenient for you. 


1. What I’m working on at the moment?

At this moment in time, I’m following several topics related to human rights. I work on different themes and topics. Every day I do “Image Of The Day” and “Thoughts for Today“. Like many bloggers, my topics vary. I try to be on the look out for world events and decisions that may affect those who need a voice.

2. How does my work differ from others in my genre?

“My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is “eclectic” – a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I’m interested in news – reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse – the “wrongly” affected.”

“Wrongly affected” includes minorities, animals, homeless, the forgotten.

I also post a MEDICAL CORNER where medical conditions are explained at a level that the lay person can understand and relate to.

3. Why do I write and create what I do?

I started blogging because I retired from a full time job and had plenty of time on my hands. Through the help of a very dear friend, I discovered this wonderful world of blogging. I found it to be an amazing experience.

I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone “out there” who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense.

4. How does my writing and creative process work?

I don’t have a set creative process. I have general ideas and the pulse of world events, special celebrations, new music videos, old music videos and topic I find while surfing the net or going through my Facebook feed provide the inspiration to what I blog about.

Ideas and topics lead to more ideas and topics. There are times when I want to cover so much that I literally don’t know which one to work on.



I would like to nominate the following four fellow bloggers. If you like doing it and it is possible, you may post on this by Monday April 13 …..

(there is a Schedule for a certain day option in WordPress)

1. “Digital Gatherings

2. “Underground Energy” – Lisa

3. “Tell Me About It” – Michelle Marie

4. “Good Time Stories” – Coach

Torture Report Details Long List Of America’s Brutal Crimes

“The CIA’s harsh interrogations of terrorist detainees during the Bush era didn’t work, were more brutal than previously revealed and delivered no “ticking time bomb” information that prevented an attack, according to an explosive Senate report released Tuesday.

My comments on the above post:

“Shameful, debased, inhumane …. and condoned by the past administration and refused to be pursued by the current one. A shame then …. a deep scar on the country. A country with no moral right AT ALL to judge, condemn, persecute any other country! The proverbial “pot calling the kettle black”. A shameful day …. another day to live in infamy! Another thing/issue not to be proud about at all!”


My Facebook status post early this morning: 

I was raised to believe that the USA was the greatest country in the world. I lived with American influence throughout my life. It always was my goal to live in”the mainland”.
December is the month when “a day in infamy” is remembered. Another such day will be included as it’s been confirmed that the country’s “rulers” secretly approved and conducted the lowest of the low methods of torture (with the less prepared agents – if anyone can be prepared to torture another human being),
The “program” was approved during the Bush administration and will be kept “under the rug” during the Obama administration. A huge mark on this country, leaving a big scar. There is no moral stand to judge, condemn or persecute other so called “barbaric” countries – which decapitate, rape, plunder, steal, profit, oppress, – when the USA is no different. The proverbial “pot calling the kettle black”! Pun intended …. shame, shame. How low can anyone go? A day in infamy indeed!! Feeling more than disappointed and terribly disgusted ….. it’s been a while that I knew “that there was no Santa”.

~~Torture Report Details Long List Of America’s Brutal Crimes~~

~~Published on Dec 9, 2014~~

The majority report issued by the Senate Intelligence Committee is a damning condemnation of the tactics — branded by critics as torture — the George W. Bush administration deployed in the fear-laden days after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The techniques, according to the report, were “deeply flawed,” poorly managed and often resulted in “fabricated” information.

The long-delayed study, distilled from more than six million CIA documents, also says the agency consistently misled Congress and the Bush White House about the harsh methods it used and the results it obtained from interrogating al Qaeda suspects.”* The Young Turks Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
