Let’s say for the sake of discussion there is validity

…Let’s say for the sake of discussion there is validity in the assessment to follow … it makes sense to take steps to protect ourselves from harm, but, in a world where assault upon person is tolerated (see NFL and violence against women and children) what we should reasonably expect were a pandemic to occur that people will not take every means possible to protect themselves even to the point of violence on the person to the extreme…?

FROM EDITOR NATRUAL NEWS … "World War E" is upon us. Today President Obama warned about the Ebola outbreak, saying "It’s spiraling out of control. It is getting worse. It’s spreading faster and exponentially. And if the outbreak is not stopped now, we could be looking at hundreds of thousands of people infected with profound political and economic and security implications for all of us."

(The funny thing is that I seem to remember myself saying all that about a month ago… is Obama ripping off my articles for his speeches? Please say no!)

Dr. Kent Brantly, the missionary doctor who survived an Ebola infection, also testified before the U.S. Senate, warning that "[Ebola is] a fire straight from the pit of Hell. We cannot fool ourselves into thinking that the vast moat of the Atlantic Ocean will protect us from this fire. [Stopping Ebola] is the only way to keep entire nations from being reduced to ashes."

To help save lives and share real solutions on Ebola, today we released Episode Five of the Pandemic Preparedness course:

Follow the Money: War Hawks and the Military Industrial Complex
09-14-2014  •  Written by Joe Wolverton, II, J.D., New American
It would appear that expansion of the "War on Terror" is less a foreign policy trajectory and more of a marketing tactic of the immense (and every expanding) military-industrial-intelligence complex and the corps of congressmen that act as

Where did common courtesy go

…Where did common courtesy go…?

In the relatively short time I have dwelled upon this planet much has changed and I am concluding not for the better. Once common social interaction wherein a form of courtesy was authentically extended, is today replaced with rhetoric infused with insensitive declarative subtle racism, sexism, even hatred tugging at the mot prurient of our instincts.

Likely a sign of my age, I still find it interesting that many younger women appear a bit offended when a man opens a door at the Post Office for them, while most men, irrespective of age, will nod or say “thank you” … where offer of assistance is seen as a form of assault on one’s person … where the Governor of a State chooses to wag her bony finger, in a highly public setting, in the face of the President of the United States of America … where the Governor of a State chooses to champion signing law allowing discrimination of those “brown” in color … or allowing the citizens in her state to refuse “service” to others based on color or religion or marital beliefs…

What is incomprehensible, to me, is much of this occurs in settings where God and the Bible are invoked and our Pledge of Allegiance recited and prayer offered by public officials to sanction and sanctify the event. Then in the next breath the tone changes and out pours vitriolic statements. Often the essence of these statements are lost in the camouflage of perfunctory “wordsmithing” many pubic setting require.

The tone, the flavor, the subtle connotation of the language we use in common discourse, hear on radio, see and hear on TV, movies, does not endorse or support common courtesy choosing instead to champion confrontation, threats, bullying, racism, sexism and then we wonder why we allow to pass unnoticed a near constant demeaning and assault on women in America.

All our favorite forms of news information, radio, TV, internet, cell phones stream almost incessantly the latest assault on women, children and those unable to either defend or speak for themselves … those somehow deemed not worth of “common courtesy” …

Is eliminating “common courtesy” really what we want…? Does its elimination add anything positive or enrich our lives…?

It will be a “darker” world indeed were we to allow “common courtesy” to disappear.

Arizona GOP–Tea Party Knew damn well what they were getting

do you even know what this association is … who it actually represents and lobbies$ for … whose intere$t in water it actually protect$…?

imageFirst, I invite you to read and thoroughly contemplate all the implication in this article written by Kathleen Ferris – Executive Director of Arizona Municipal Water Users Association – do you even know what this association is … who it actually represents and lobbies$ for … whose intere$t in water it actually protect$…?

Arizona Municipal Water Users Association Since 1969, AMWUA has advanced the interests of its ten municipal members on policy and regulatory issues affecting water. AMWUA advocates for its members at the Arizona Legislature, the Governor’s Office, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, the Arizona Department of Water Resources, other state agencies, the Central Arizona Project and the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce. AMWUA also works collaboratively with other water stakeholders to devise practical solutions to water problems to ensure sustainable growth for Arizona.

I didn’t see your name as a member nor did you see mine as they represent only municipal -private water users.

I found Ms. Ferris’s notation on page A15 of the Monday issue of the Arizona Republic quite revealing… “that’s because Colorado River water delivered through the Central Arizona Project makes up only about 37% of the association cities’ supply, while Salt River and Verde River water (51%), treated wastewater (5%) and groundwater (7%) make up the rest.” … You were aware, were you not that the SAFE water provided and sold to you by your municipal water purveyor contains treated sewage … treated though never fully disclosed to you to what degree and/or for what constituents this sewage is treated.  Oh, you say no one told you … hey, they really don’t have to make you aware or get your approval as the deck has been stacked to enable to this cabal to summarily declare without your input or approval any water to be SAFE.

Hardly a day passes that there is not article(s) some authored by folks authentically knowledgeable about “water” issues in southwest USA and especially those dependent upon water provided by the Colorado River.  While there appears to be a general consensus most of west and especially the southwest remains under the influence of rather drastic drought conditions which have especially impacted the flow in the Colorado River as well as it tributaries, one reading and listening to Arizona “water guru’s” get a steady diet of Arizona has no immediate water issue.  This diet is the foundation for the position fostered by Ms. Ferris in the article referenced. 

Your water supply is secure, per Ms. Ferris, thanks to their careful, skillful planning, yet there is a total failure on her part to acknowledge the increased political and economic pressure incessantly placed on the Colorado River water.  Nevada, California, Utah, New Mexico all have immediate plans to utilize to the  maximum extent possible all the water to which they are legally entitled from the Colorado River, and even more if possible, see California legacy.  Meanwhile the inflows into the Colorado River are being challenged especially by Utah via the Green River, the largest tributary of the Colorado River and New Mexico, via the San Juan River an appreciable portion of which has been allocated to the Native Americans.
