NYC ID program starts off with a bang

Luis Gordillo, a carpenter from Ecuador, adjusts his shirt collar as he has his picture taken while applying for a New York City municipal ID card at Make the Road New York in the Queens section of New Yor…NEW YORK — A municipal ID program that city officials thought would draw a few hundred thousand people in its first year has been much more popular than anticipated, with New Yorkers waiting hours in line and months for appointments to register.

City officials have scrambled to keep up with the demand as residents have made more than 260,000 appointments in just the first month since the city IDs became available. In the first couple of days before the online system was up, people waited hours for their turn.

"To see this kind of response ... is remarkable in a positive way and I think has a lot of lessons to teach us," said Nisha Agarwal, the city's commissioner for immigrant affairs.


Should Californians Resurrect a Plan to Pipe in Water From Alaska?

River ValleyCalifornians are desperate for water, so you can’t blame them for greedily eyeing the storm-sodden east. Look at all that snow! That’s just frozen water, right? But seriously, trucking snow from Boston over the Rockies is a pipe dream. Or…not the right kind of pipe, anyway.

Consider ASKFMB's U.S. Anti-Flooding System, which is a concept that is designed to move huge sums of water from any one area of the nation to another.  The System will also create jobs for decades and can also be used to fight "Forest Fires, Flooding, Droughts, as well the ability to be an "Anti Invasion tool" for national defense.


Many South Sudan boys 'kidnapped to be child soldiers'

South Sudan Boys turned into military personelHundreds of boys in South Sudan have been kidnapped and forced to become child soldiers, the United Nations children's agency says.

The figure is a big increase on the 89 child abductions reported by Unicef last month.

Their latest statement blamed a militia group allied to the government. South Sudan is in a state of civil war with forces loyal to President Salva Kiir pitted against rebels led by former Vice-President Riek Machar.


Targeting Inequality, This Time on Public Transit

Public TransitSEATAC, Wash. — On Sunday, the county transit system for the Seattle metropolitan area began hurtling down a road that few cities have traveled before: pricing tickets based on passengers’ income.

The project, which is being closely watched around the nation, gives discounts on public transportation to people whose household income is no more than 200 percent of the federal poverty level — for instance, $47,700 or less for a family of four under the 2014 guidelines.


Maduro says Venezuela detains U.S. citizens; announces moves against U.S.

Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro with bush and chaneyCARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said on Saturday his government had detained U.S. citizens, including a pilot, on suspicion of espionage, in a move likely to strain already tense relations between Washington and Caracas.

Maduro also said his government would order a reduction in the number of U.S. embassy staff in Caracas and prohibit some U.S. officials from entering Venezuela in retaliation for a similar U.S. measure last year. Venezuela would also require U.S. citizens to obtain visas before visiting, he told a rally.

He said U.S. politicians including former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and Senator Bob Menendez would be blocked from entering Venezuela.


Army veteran's guilt over surviving Iraq is a wound that won't heal

Arvin ReyesIt had been years since Sloan Sulham had heard from any of his men in Iraq. But the soft voice and Philippine accent on the phone were immediately recognizable:

Spc. Reyes. "Arvin," Reyes reminded his former platoon sergeant. Sulham wasn't likely to forget Arvin Reyes.

They had been together on a day that changed both their lives. In the early afternoon of June 28, 2007, they were riding in the same Humvee when insurgents in southern Baghdad ambushed their convoy.

Five soldiers under Sulham's command were killed. Now, nearly seven years later, Reyes had tracked Sulham down in Florida to make a confession:

One of the soldiers, his friend Spc. Shin Woo Kim, hadn't died at the hands of the enemy.

Reyes said he had to tell the truth. He had accidentally shot Kim. Sulham was astounded. He knew more than anyone else alive that Reyes was innocent.


Russians march in memory of murdered Putin critic

Tens of thousands of Russians marched through central Moscow on Sunday, carrying banners declaring "I am not afraid" and chanting "Russia without Putin" in memory of murdered Kremlin critic Boris NemtsovMOSCOW (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of Russians marched through central Moscow on Sunday, carrying banners declaring "I am not afraid" and chanting "Russia without Putin" in memory of murdered Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov.

Families, the old and young walked slowly, with many holding portraits of the opposition politician and former deputy prime minister who was shot dead while walking home from a nearby restaurant on Friday night.

"If we can stop the campaign of hate that's being directed at the opposition, then we have a chance to change Russia. If not, then we face the prospect of mass civil conflict," Gennady Gudkov, an opposition leader, told Reuters.


Anti-Israel divestment push gains traction at US colleges

In the United States, Israel's closest ally, the decade-old boycott-divestment-sanctions movement, or BDS, is making its strongest inroads on college campusesNEW YORK (AP) — The ritual has become increasingly commonplace on many American college campuses:

A student government body takes up Israeli policy toward the Palestinians and decides whether to demand their school divest from companies that work with the Jewish state.

In the United States, Israel's closest ally, the decade-old boycott-divestment-sanctions movement, or BDS, is making its strongest inroads on college campuses. No U.S. school has sold off stock and none is expected to do so anytime soon.

Still, the current academic year is seeing an increasing number of divestment drives on campus.

Since January, student governments at four universities have taken divestment votes.


‘I’m a felon’: Former HealthSouth executive cautions students against fraud

Aaron Beam, the co-founder and former Chief Financial Officer of HealthSouth, spoke to graduate students at Carlow University on Friday, cautioning them against fraud. Aaron Beam was a millionaire in his 40s, when he was employed as one of the co-founders of HealthSouth Corp., a physical rehabilitation provider in Birmingham, Alabama.

By the age of 64, he was mowing lawns for $50 each. “Most of the people who hired me didn’t know I was a former CFO of a New York Stock Exchange company,” Beam said Friday.

They also didn’t know he was a felon in an approximately $2.7 billion securities fraud who spent three months behind bars in 2005.


'I Will Never Wear Trousers Again': Meet Serbia's First Transgender Army Major

Helena is happiest about not being forced to wear trousers again. “I shall never ever wear trousers,” says the Serbian army’s first transgender officer.

There may be several other things Helena will never do again after serving in the Armed forces as a man for more than 20 years and after being married to a woman for 21 years.

One might be reflecting positively on the Serbian Army and Serbia’s Ministry of Defence, since she is taking legal action against both of them on the grounds that they did nothing to stop her being the subject of insults and harassment.


New Museum Depicts 'The Life Of A Slave From Cradle To The Tomb'

Whitney Plantation in Louisiana has designed the visitor's entire experience around that history.The section of Louisiana's serpentine River Road that tracks along the Mississippi between New Orleans and Baton Rouge is known as "Plantation Alley."

The restored antebellum mansions along the route draw hundreds of thousands of visitors a year.

The newest attraction aims to give visitors a realistic look at life in the pre-Civil War South. Don't expect hoop skirts and mint juleps, but stark relics that tell the story of a dark period in American history, through the eyes of the enslaved.

From the entrance, Whitney Plantation in Wallace, La., resembles the other plantations, with majestic oaks framing the front walk to the French-Creole style "big house."

But before you can see the late-18th century home, furnished with period finery, a tour guide introduces you to the slaves who built it, and everything else, on this former sugar cane plantation.

The names of the 356 people enslaved on the plantation are etched in granite slabs on the Wall of Honor.


A German Muslim Asks His Compatriots: 'What Do You Want To Know?'

 "I am a Moslem. What would you like to know?" in an effort to promote dialogue between Muslims and non-Muslims. Earlier this month, Dr. Sadiqu al-Mousllie, accompanied by his family and a few members of their mosque, stood in downtown Braunschweig, Germany, and held up signs that read: "I a

Sadiqu al-Mousllie sees humor as a good way to fight growing anti-Islam sentiment in Germany. He lives in Braunschweig, in western Germany. Earlier this month, he decided to go downtown and hold up a sign that read, "I am a Moslem. What would you like to know?"


Sir John Sawers, ex-MI6 chief, warns of Russia 'danger'

Sir John Sawers spoke to Today's Mishal HusseinRussia has become a danger to Britain and the country must be prepared to take steps to defend itself and its allies, the former head of MI6 says. Sir John Sawers, who recently retired after five years as chief of the Secret Intelligence Service, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that Russia poses a "state to state threat".

Sir John said dealing with such threats would require more defence spending.

But he called on issues with Russia to be addressed by "increased dialogue".


Judge rejects delay in sentencing for ailing ex-state legislator

Illinois Rep. Keith Farnham, D-Elgin, argues sales tax holiday legislation while on the House floor during session at the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield, Ill., May 6, 2010. Former state Rep. Keith Farnham will face sentencing next month for distributing child pornography despite a number of health crises that have potentially left him with only six months to live.

Farnham's lawyer, Terry Ekl, had sought to delay the sentencing, arguing in a court filing that the former lawmaker's advanced lung disease and constant reliance on supplemental oxygen made it difficult for him to travel to the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse.

In rejecting a delay, U.S. District Judge Edmund Chang said it appeared Farnham "is physically capable of traveling to the courthouse for sentencing, based on his physician's description of his condition and based on his other out-of-home appointments."


Looted Iraqi Museum in Baghdad reopens 12 years on

Iraq's national museumIraq's national museum has officially reopened in Baghdad, 12 years after it was closed in the aftermath of the US-led invasion.

Many of the antiquities looted during the war have now been recovered and restored.

The museum's opening was brought forward in response to an Islamic State (IS) video showing statues being destroyed in Mosul.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has vowed to punish those responsible.

"Those barbaric, criminal terrorists are trying to destroy the heritage of mankind and Iraq's civilization,"

Mr Abadi said while attending the museum's opening.

"We will chase them in order to make them pay for every drop of blood shed in Iraq and for the destruction of Iraq's civilization.''

The world heritage body

Unesco has called for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss how to protect Iraq's cultural heritage.


Why 40-Year-Old Tech Is Still Running America's Air Traffic Control

On Friday, September 26, 2014, a telecommunications contractor named Brian Howard woke early and headed to Chicago Center, an air traffic control hub in Aurora, Illinois, where he had worked for eight years. On Friday, September 26, 2014, a telecommunications contractor named Brian Howard woke early and headed to Chicago Center, an air traffic control hub in Aurora, Illinois, where he had worked for eight years.

He had decided to get stoned and kill himself, and as his final gesture he planned to take a chunk of the US air traffic control system with him.

Court records say Howard entered Chicago Center at 5:06 am and went to the basement, where he set a fire in the electronics bay, sliced cables beneath the floor, and cut his own throat.


Black Stand for Civil Rights at Mexico Olympics

Peter Norman, Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the Mexico Olympic Games podium How can you ask someone to live in the world, to exist in the world and not have something to say about injustice?”

Talking about athletic performances, Mexico 1968 Olympic Games rank among the very best in history.

The world record was broken in no less than 15 specialties, including up to five times by three different athletes at the triple Jump.

Interestingly, all but two of those records were set at sprint and horizontal jump events, helped by the altitude and ideal atmospheric conditions.

The most remembered moment of the Games was the superhuman flight of Bob Beamon, but also Jim Hines ran for the first time ever under 10sec and Lee Evans and Larry James under 44sec.

Evans’ record stood for 20 years and the one recorded by him and his mates of the male 4×400 relay even longer than Beamon’s 8.90.


KKK Was Terrorizing America Decades Before Islamic State Appeared

American KKK Terroristic Past nothing less than barbaricWhen Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) returned home from a trip to the Middle East in October, he offered a reflection on the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, to the Bangor Daily News:

"My characterization of ISIS is that they have 14th century ethics and 21st century weapons," he said.

King and others who have reached into the Middle Ages for an apt Islamic State comparison may be going back further than they need to.

The 19th and 20th centuries work just as well.

For David Pilgrim, the founder and director of the Jim Crow Museum at Ferris State University, the actions of ISIS and other extremist groups are familiar -- no better, no worse than the historic stateside violence against African-Americans.

"There's nothing you're going to see today that's not going to have already occurred in the U.S.," he said.

"If you think of these groups that behead now -- first of all,

beheading is barbaric but

it's no more or less barbaric than some of the lynchings that occurred in the U.S."

The Ku Klux Klan was a domestic terror organization from its beginning, said Pilgrim, who finds it offensive when, after 9/11, some Americans would bemoan that terrorism had finally breached U.S. borders.


Boris Nemtsov, outspoken Putin critic, shot dead in Moscow

Boris Nemtsov

Moscow (CNN)—Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov was shot and killed Friday night in central Moscow, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation said in a statement Saturday, prompting immediate speculation from fellow opposition figures that the killing was targeted. A deputy prime minister in the late 1990s under President Boris Yeltsin, Nemtsov had been one of current President Vladimir Putin's most vocal critics.


Pelosi Slams ‘Toxic Anti-Immigrant’ House Republicans

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi came out swinging at House Republicans on Friday for pushing a vote on a bill that will fund the Department of Homeland Security for the next three weeks.

Speaking to reporters Friday morning, Pelosi reiterated Democratic support for a vote to fund DHS for the entire year and called the House GOP’s recalcitrance “a staggering failure of leadership that will prolong this manufactured crisis of theirs and endanger the security of the American people.”


Teacher denies radicalizing Canadian teens headed to Syria

Adil Charkaoui speaks in media interviewMONTREAL (Reuters) - A Muslim teacher once jailed by Canada as a security threat denied on Friday he had radicalized Canadian teens believed to have headed to Syria to fight with Islamic State, saying his school had only brief contact with one of the six students.

The students, four men and two women aged 18 and 19, left Montreal in January and February for Turkey and then on to Syria, according to media reports, the latest in a string of young Westerners who have become radicalized and have headed to the Middle East hoping to fight with Islamic State.


Gaza floods: dispelling the myth about Israeli 'dams'

Nahal Besor areaTzeelim (Israel) (AFP) - Once again this winter, following days of very heavy rainfall across the region, the banks of a riverbed running through central Gaza were breached, flooding dozens of Palestinian homes.

For the residents, there was no doubt: Israel was responsible after deliberately opening "a dam" to flood the enclave.

But an examination of the facts on the Israeli side tells another story, shattering a long-held Palestinian myth.

People living in Wadi Gaza say flooding happens every year after heavy rain, creating yet another challenge for those struggling to survive in the tiny coastal territory.



Leonard Nimoy, 'Star Trek's' Spock, dead at 83

Leonard Nimoy(CNN)Leonard Nimoy, whose portrayal of "Star Trek's" logic-driven, half-human science officer Spock made him an iconic figure to generations, died Friday. He was 83.

Nimoy died this morning in Bel Air, California, his son Adam Nimoy told CNN. According to his granddaughter, Madeleine Nimoy, the cause of death was chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. His "Star Trek" co-stars, including William Shatner and George Takei, expressed sadness at his death.


Stopgap Homeland Security spending bill fails in House

John BoehnerWASHINGTON (AP) — The House has rejected a stopgap spending bill for the Homeland Security Department with just hours to go before a midnight deadline to fund the agency or see it begin to partially shut down.

Islamic State: Iraq minorities 'threatened with eradication'

Iraqi minorities, such as the Yazidis, have been subject to genocide by IS, the report arguesIslamic State militants are trying to eradicate Iraqi minority groups from large parts of the country, human rights organisations have warned.

A report details summary executions, forced conversions, rape and other abuses suffered by minorities.

Such acts are tantamount to war crimes, and in some cases, genocide, it argues. Iraqi minorities face a "threat to their existence", said the Institute of International Law and Human Rights (IILHR), one of the groups involved.

Focusing on Iraq's Christian, Kaka'i, Shabak, Turkmen and Yazidi populations, the report looks at their plight after the fall of Mosul to IS in June 2014, a key point in the rise of a group that now controls swathes of the country.


CPAC 2015: GOP White House contenders unite against Hillary Clinton

CPAC 2015Washington (CNN)The year's biggest conservative confab kicks off Thursday as thousands of activists, elected officials and party leaders gather for the Conservative Political Action Conference.

But while they're gathering at a convention center just outside of Washington, D.C., their minds — and rhetoric — are focused squarely on the White House and on attacking Hillary Clinton, the most likely Democratic nominee in 2016.

This year's CPAC marks the unofficial kickoff of the battle for the conservative vote among GOP presidential contenders. For some, like Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, the event will be a homecoming, a return to their most ardent and loyal supporters.

For others, like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, CPAC represents a lion's den, full of activists skeptical of his conservative chops and wary of his presidential aspirations.


Eric Holder: I'm worried about lone wolf attacks

"I wouldn't put anything off the table," Holder said.Washington (CNN)Shortly after the ISIS recruit known as Jihadi John was unmasked as Mohammed Emwazi of London -- outgoing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder vowed, "Anyone involved in the killing of American citizens will be held accountable. It doesn't matter where you are, we will find you. We will hunt you down."

"Whether it's through the use of our military or the use of our law enforcement capacity, if you harm Americans it is the sworn duty of every person in the executive branch to find you and hold you accountable, and we will do that," he said.


No charges yet for pickup driver in train crash 'mistake'

Jose Alejandro Sanchez-RamirezOXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Investigators on Thursday were trying to determine why a pickup truck driver mistakenly turned onto railroad tracks before a crash that derailed a California commuter train, and prosecutors said they would await more answers before deciding to file charges.

"We know a mistake was made," said Robert Sumwalt of the National Transportation Safety Board, the agency leading the investigation. "We want to figure out why."


'Jihadi John': The bourgeois terrorist

Mohammed Emwazi(CNN)This is how top national security reporters Souad Mekhennet and Adam Goldman of the Washington Post, who broke the story that Mohammed Emwazi has been identified as the notorious ISIS terrorist known as "Jihadi John," describe him: "a Briton from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from college with a degree in computer programming."


Boehner defends Netanyahu's upcoming speech to Congress

Boehner between a rock and a hard place due to stupidityWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner on Thursday challenged an assertion by the Obama administration that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's upcoming speech to Congress about nuclear negotiations with Iran would be destructive to U.S.-Israeli relations.

"The president's national security advisor says it's destructive for the prime minister of Israel to address the United States Congress. I couldn't disagree more," Boehner said at his weekly news conference.

People in Miami protest the Texas district court judge who temporarily blocked the implementation of President Obama's Executive Action on immigration Tuesday. They use the power of their vote to force change in their favor, even as their actions cause harm to the citizens who voted them into office.

They stand in front of the mic and exalt how they stand for voters when they get a backdoor payment from the rich and the big companies.

It is actual lives that are harmed by them all,


based on lies and designed deception.

As Oil Prices Tank, Firms Large And Small Feel The Pain

Poor Management nets no Empathy from American Citizens

Oil RigFor the past 2.5 years, the American Citizens have been feeling the pain at the pumps, paying upwards of $4.00 per gallon of gas, which is a price that cost the oil industry no one extra penny for the same amount of oil produced.

What have they been doing with all of the profits gained while the prices were killing every American Citizen?

Now, we hear the woes of those in the oil industry,

they are feeling the pinch of the cut in profits, and the example that we are observing in the tears of those in the oil industry is that of

piss poor management that spends and disseminate profits and not set aside money for the inevitable lowering of gas prices.

I feel no empathy for those in the oil industry what so ever.

an adult must take charge and provide guidance.

Homeland security chief worried about al Shabaab mall threat

Republican House & Senate means more confusion

Shoppers walk around the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, U.S., on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012.

The answer to the question whether or not there would be a drastic change in the functionality of the U.S. Government since the Republicans took control of the Senate, is now being answered in a firm


More Total Dysfunction by the Republicans whom are arguing that it's the "Senate Democrats" that are now the problem, even though the Senate is now led by the Republicans.

I guess the real answer that the republicans want is the same type of acquiescence that took place when Bush was in office,
which led to the worse American Financial Collapse
in the past 80 years, not to mention,
an illegal invasion of a sovereign nation and....
Bush's authorization of "Torture".

I guess Bush loved America so much that he believed that
International Laws and U.S. Laws were his to ignore.

The Republicans that are in the seats of power

are the wrong people in charge because they

lack the consideration of the
American Citizens.



Jeb Bush tiptoes into critique of his brother’s Iraq legacy

How Callous Jeb Bush refers to an illegal war that cost lives...

Jeb BushIf it was Jeb Bush's Son that was killed in Iraq, would his disposition regarding his brother's orders to attack Iraq, be as callous?

If it was Jeb Bush's Daughter Raped in Iraq as a female U.S. Marine serving in Iraq, would his disposition regarding his brother's orders to attack Iraq, be as callous?

When asked about his brothers decision to take this entire world to war, Jeb Bush's response is that of a person who's brother caused a "finder bender".

I would love to see Jeb Bush standing face to fact to a woman who have lost a son in Iraq......

The Callous Disposition of Jeb Bush on this subject validates that his father's powerful influence has removed Jeb's sensitivity to

human conscientious awareness.



US withholding details of Iran nuke talks from Israel

Netanyahu's Poor Character has cost Israel immensely

NetanyahuPresident Obama has had enough of the two headed snake, and when your the President of the United States of America,

you carry a very big stick.

Israel's Netanyahu has been a back stabbing 2 faced selfish thorn in the ass of the past 2 Presidents and today, finally,

we have a President that says to Netanyahu,

"Screw You" on the signature issue for all Israeli's and this response is the reaction to a Netanyahu's years of flawed behavior.

Congratulations President Obama...,

your actions have been a warranted action for 7 years.



HSBC publishes apology in Sunday newspapers

To little and far to late, yet no one goes to jail


Known for decades, tax shelters for the rich have been stashed in Swiss Banks and even as the world knows, no regulators and no law enforcement bodies have initiated any semblance of an effective investigation simply because this type of crime is committed by the rich.

Poor Character in rich is often more acute because they are awarded the benefit of the doubt and they can simply buy their way out of any jail.

Check this out:

"We have absolutely no appetite to do business with clients who are evading their taxes or who fail to meet our financial crime compliance standards." "




Visiting from India, grandfather badly hurt in encounter; officer arrested

Sureshbhai Patel taken down from the back by a coward police officer that resulted in his injuries

A Cowardly attack of a 57 Year Old Man by Officer

$Millions of tax dollars are wasted each year on law suits settlements for poor and criminal behavior by police officers.

Any psychiatrist will tell you that it takes years to perfect the skill of understanding the behavioral patterns of people, yet we give a gun and a badge to a 22 year old person who has limited education outside of high school.

Equally as egregious, these under educated police officers, themselves, are often, to young and to immature to be anointed the power of unquestionable authority over every citizen he/she interacts with.

Giving such power to under educated and immature people will yield abuse and bullying.

Sureshbhai Patel is now partially paralyzed from a unnecessary and unwarranted take down, and this act will cost the citizens $Millions.



FBI monitored and critiqued African American writers for decades

FBI Monitoring has not stopped... Ask Me How

I Know...

Richard WrightThe long ago exploits of the FBI, well known around the world are anything but ceased.

Former Black Men who had any degree of influence, meaning,

if a Black Man had any degree of intelligence, or any possibility of fame and influence, he was marked.

Today, example, the FBI monitors thousands of names of people who would create possible influences that may cause specific human behavior in the masses, say for instances, those who may be smart enough to have a
World News Website.

Today, no one is immune to the FBI's surveillance and anyone can be possible for black listing... WHY...




Muslim leaders in North Carolina welcome FBI probe into triple slaying

"Under The World's Microscope", all behavior is scrutinized

 Muslims and others prepare to say the Friday prayers outside the White House in Washington, in the wake of the murder of three young North Carolina Muslims, Feb. 13, 2015.This isn't a nation on earth that can get away with flawed behavior, nor can the citizens of any nation.

One World Consciousness

is where we are and where we are headed and acts of racism anywhere will go on display for all in the world to see.

Every single act of malice is an act that can possibly end up on the world's stage and that act will be displayed in the light.

How you treat others will matter more now, so


When the Light of Truth is constantly on...,

it forces you to correct your flawed behavior,

unless you are of of

Great Character.



Spain ex-king appeals against paternity suit: source

Take away the Crown leaving a shell of Piss Poor Character

Juan CarlosThe Character in a person is an ever evolving human behavior package and as you evolve, all of your life acts and actions remain your responsibility.

Those who are born into power and those who achieve great power are more susceptible to flawed character because they are protected from their own

mal's and vices.

Thus, it is the powerful who have further to fall when their flawed character is no longer protected.



Three admirals forced out in Navy bribery scandal

Un-Equal Punishment for Equal Behavior

Michael Miller with obamaHow many times are lower ranked enlisted personal reduced in rank, kicked out of the military or even placed in jail for something as simple as
"Late for formation, Missing a PFT, Associating with a married woman"?

Yet, in instances where the highest ranking officers are
"caught taking bribes, sharing secret documents, disclosing the movement of an entire fleet of ships, or taking bribes and sexual favors for information",
these high ranking officers are "allowed" to retire with a full pension and a "censure" on their records and they find themselves serving as actual "Military Expert Advisors" for CNN, Fox or MSNBC, making $300k per year, instead of going to military prison.

This 3 year investigation has brought down most of the top ranking officers in the Navy and all of them deserve jail time.


Three Navy admirals have been censured by the secretary of the Navy for "poor judgment and a failure of leadership"
linked to a bribery scandal that federal prosecutors
say cost taxpayers $20 million

Can you say "Good Old Boy Hypocrisy".

Educate Your Consciousness


Well, what does
“Educate Your Consciousness”


Your Consciousness is your awareness
of your individual person,
your emotions,
your mental capabilities,
your physical strength and
your complete understanding of
your heart.~

~~~But there is more,
your consciousness,
is your awareness of your surroundings,
your environment,
your awareness of the people
that immediately surround you,
your awareness
of how the surroundings affect you
and how you
affect your surroundings.

Your consciousness
of the people around you
and how their behavior affects you
and how your behavior affects them,
are essential…
to enjoying all that interact with you
on a day to day basis.

By being aware of
and others,
you make conscious decisions
of the words that you speak,
the way that you respond to other’s words,
the words that you choose
in making your point
and how you present those words.

Your Consciousness
is outside of your level of “


your level of education
will directly affect your capacity
of conscious awareness.

does not mean your actual
“Educated College Degrees”,
it means the amount of information
that you have on any
and all subjects of life.
Education is based on
your individual knowledge of a subject
based on the amount of factual information
that you understand per the subject.

if your job requires you to be there at 7 a.m.,
and you usually wake at 5 a.m.,
and your first 30 minutes
have you in the bathroom
but the time between
5:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m.
may have you prepping your clothes
and your television just happens to be on a channel that provides
“Psychiatry and the Mental Disorders
of the Criminally Insane Mind”...;
For 4 years,
you hear these conversations
presented by people who have PHDs,
on the subject of personality disorders,
emotional stress and associating behaviors resulting from life’s occurrences,
and other subjects that are discussed
by the program that is focused on

I would suggest
that after listening to such a program
for 4 years…
will provide you with enough information
to be able to make decent decisions
or have a quality conversation
with someone regarding the subject of
personality disorders
based on the amount of info
that you were subjected
to over the span of 4 years.

you are not a PHD,
if you are capable of
listening and understanding
the points and perspectives of the PHDs,
then you have enough knowledge
on the point to make a quality decision
associated with your interactions
with a specific person.

by listening and understanding
to enough information on any specific subject,
one can articulate a quality opinion
based on the amount of quality and factual information understood from years
of observances.

This is how
we educate our awareness,
we do it by reading,
and understanding
the facts of any specific subject
over a span of time.

Educating Your Consciousness means,
learn, read, listen and absorb
any and all information that you can,
about all the subjects of life.

A Life Time
is very long
and there are many instances

that present themselves
to each individual each day,
so listen and learn
and in doing so,
you increase your consciousness
on all the subjects that matter
to you each
individual day.

Jake Corman removes punishment imposed on Penn State

A win for Paterno? Proposed NCAA deal could restore Penn State victories 1/17


Rapes Ignored by Penn State...,
Now.., a repreive for Penn State


A reminder of what caused Penn State to be appropriately punished:


Poor decisions by those who were in positions of authority,
positions to protect the boys, and those in positions to report the rapes,
did nothing, and they're lack of actions allowed the rapes to continue, and for that reason, Penn State was appropriately punished.


Now, once again, business as usual has the good old boys,
coming to the rescue of other good old boys by removing the necessary punishments that were determined as "soft".


Joe Paterno did nothing and that is why the Penn State's Wins were removed, and now, the punishments are being removed
in what I assess as a
Unconscionable Travesty.

Is racial violence part of Mississippi's past or present? 2/10/15


The Pain View of Ones Mirror Yields Silence in the reflection of Guilt


a harsh word that delves deep into the consciousness of the perpetrator and the victim.

What's the difference between 1950 and 2010, with respect to Whites and Racist Acts?



In 1950, there are blatant and callous acts of racism that took the lives of many Blacks in the South, and with each life taken, there were many non racist whites who were at the sceen of the murders..., and said


As these barbaric and senseless inhuman murders took place, there were many non racist whites who heard the stories from family members, friends, colleges and associates, and these many non racist whites said


Here, on this day, the same act of silence in those who know the truth... continues and the humongous conscious burden of guilt is like a ball and chain in the hearts of those non racist whom seem to always find themselves on the wrong side of righteousness.


Someone said,
"When I was a child, I behaved like a Child,
but, when I became an Adult,
I behave like an Adult".


Mississippi as well as every state in the U.S. is infested with weak minded adults who fear their own mirror and the fear of their own guilt shames them into believing that if they say
no one will ever know... and that they will construe their lack of action as an act of guilt or
condoning the flawed ones.

For Decades,
Barbaric and Inhuman Beheadings,

Inhumane Destruction of Life

Now, in an apparent burning of

to actually record the burning of

Judge rules in Peterson's favor

Adrian PetersonU.S. District Judge David Doty on Thursday overturned NFL arbitrator Harold Henderson's denial of Adrian Peterson's appeal, clearing the way for the Vikings running back's possible reinstatement to the league. Doty issued his order Thursday, less than three weeks after hearing oral arguments. The ruling sends the case back for further proceedings consistent with the rules of the collective bargaining agreement.

The league had suspended Peterson through at least April 15 under its personal conduct policy for his role in a child abuse scandal that shook the league. Doty said in his 16-page ruling that Henderson "simply disregarded the law of the shop and in doing so failed to meet his duty" under the collective bargaining agreement.

Australian researchers unveil world's first 3D printed jet engine

3-D printed Jet EngineAustralian researchers unveiled the world's first 3D-printed jet engine on Thursday, a manufacturing breakthrough that could lead to cheaper, lighter and more fuel-efficient jets.

Engineers at Monash University and its commercial arm are making top-secret prototypes for Boeing Co, Airbus Group NV, Raytheon Co and Safran SA in a development that could be the savior of Australia's struggling manufacturing sector.

Marriott said Amaero plans to have printed engine components in flight tests within the next 12 months and certified for commercial use within the next two to three years.

Long investigation likely in 70-car pileup on Maine highway

70 car pileETNA, Maine — State police say the investigation into a 70-car pileup that injured at least 17 people on a snowy interstate in Maine could take a while.

Police say the pileup on Interstate 95 began in Carmel and Etna at about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday when the vehicles became entangled in chain-reaction crashes caused by snow and speed.

State police say the crash was the biggest in Maine in more than 15 years. Lt. Sean Hashey says investigators may never determine exactly how the events unfolded because of how many vehicles were involved.

He did not rule out the possibility of criminal charges.

Police fired 17 times at Mexican orchard worker in Washington shooting

Antonio Zambrano-Montes(CNN)Seventeen times. That's how many shots police in Pasco, Washington, fired at Antonio Zambrano-Montes when they killed him after he allegedly hurled rocks at them. Of those, five or six rounds struck the former orchard worker, according to the investigative team looking into the incident.

Zambrano-Montes, a 35-year-old Mexican national, was shot on February 10, in a case that has sparked local protests and anger at what some say is another example of police brutality and excessive force against an unarmed man who is a minority.

Police have alleged that Zambrano-Montes was throwing rocks at cars and trucks when he was confronted by officers.

Dumping subway trains into the ocean ... in a good way dumping metal into the ocean is a bad thing, but for once throwing disused items into the sea is working out for the greater good. Over 2,500 New York subway cars have been used to create an underwater reef for crustaceans and fish in the Atlantic.

Over a period of three years, photographer Stephen Mallon of the Front Room Gallery captured images of the carriages being put in place, and his photos now are being shown in a solo exhibition in New York.

"I had read about the subway cars being dropped into the Atlantic but I thought the project was over," said Mallon.

"Then in 2007 I was scouting for another shoot and saw the barges being loaded up."

ISIS militant 'Jihadi John' identified, U.S. officials say

Mohammed Emwazi(CNN)A man with a British accent seen in ISIS videos showing the beheadings of Western hostages was identified Thursday as Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti-born Londoner, according to two U.S. officials and two U.S. congressional sources briefed on the matter.

The Washington Post earlier reported that Emwazi is "Jihadi John," citing one of Emwazi's close friends.

A Muslim-led human rights advocacy group in London, CAGE, which had contact with Emwazi over alleged "harassment" by UK security services, also said in a statement there were "some striking similarities" between 26-year-old Emwazi and the man seen in execution videos holding a knife.

London's Metropolitan Police declined to confirm the reported identity. CNN has been unable to confirm the reporting.

"We have previously asked media outlets not to speculate about the details of our investigation on the basis that life is at risk," said Commander Richard Walton of the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command.

Ukrainian POWs dig out bodies of comrades killed at airport

Ukrainian POWsDONETSK, Ukraine (AP) — Ukrainian POWs in the separatist stronghold of Donetsk began a task Wednesday that strained their hearts as well as their muscles: digging through the rubble to retrieve the bodies of fellow soldiers killed last month in the bitter battle for the city's airport.

Associated Press journalists saw at least four bodies being carried out of the once-glittering, now-obliterated Donetsk airport terminal. A Ukrainian official said seven in all were retrieved.

Rebel representatives said many more soldiers were still buried under the collapsed building, but provided no figures. One captive soldier saw two friends being pulled out of the rubble, as the facility's twisted steel beams and smashed cement walls were being sawn into pieces and towed away.

Man charged in Colorado Springs bombing denied bond

Thaddeus MurphyA federal magistrate on Wednesday denied bond to a man accused of bombing a building that houses the Colorado Springs chapter of the NAACP, although he has not been charged with targeting the civil rights group, prosecutors said.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael Watanabe ruled that Thaddeus Murphy is a danger to the community, poses a flight risk, and ordered him held without bail until the case is resolved, the U.S. Attorney's Office said in a statement.

Murphy, 44, was arrested last week and confessed to federal agents that he assembled and planted the homemade device out of "rage" toward his former accountant who once had an office in the building, court documents showed.

Murphy denied targeting the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, but federal authorities said they are still investigating whether the bombing was a racially motivated crime.
