Toilet Trouble

Donald Trump’s comments about Hillary Clinton’s bathroom break during the latest presidential debate were ridiculous and offensive, but at least he’s bringing attention to ongoing gender inequities.

Suddenly, drones are everywhere

Though none has to date, the risk of a drone being ingested by a jetliner engine and causing a fatal accident is all too real. Bird strikes are bad enough. One of the most feared birds encountered by aircraft is the common Canada goose, weighing anything up to 6kg. In 2009 a collision with a flock of migratory Canada geese caused a US Airways flight to suffer complete loss of power after takeoff from LaGuardia airport, New York. The bird strike could have easily ended in disaster but for the skill of the pilot, Captain Chesley Sullenberger, who famously brought the stricken Airbus A320 down for a splash landing in the Hudson River without loss of life. The last thing airline pilots need is an additional hazard caused by UAVs weighing as much or more than a Canada goose.

Over the past year, American pilots have reported some 700 close encounters with UAVs of one sort or another. That pales almost into insignificance when compared with the 13,700 bird strikes in America last year, or the 4,000 or so reports of laser pointers being directed at aircraft. But the number of recreational drones is increasing rapidly. If just one percent of those already in circulation were to cause problems, drone threats would exceed bird strikes by a considerable margin.

The biggest aviation threat of all comes when passenger planes are taking off or landing, or when helicopters have to operate close to the ground while fighting fires, rescuing accident casualities or pursuing criminals. Unlike fixed-wing aircraft, which are required in America to fly at least 1,000 feet above the highest obstacle in their path, helicopters can operate at much lower altitudes. At least four instances have been reported over the past six months of helicopters fighting wild fires in southern California having to cease operations because of reckless drone-owners flying dangerously close for their own amusement.

America’s Incarcerated Population, Largest in World, Grew Even More Last Year

12-30-2015  •  theintercept.com The federal government’s Bureau of Justice Statistics has released new numbers detailing how America’s incarcerated population — already the world’s largest — grew even bigger in 2014.

 … to enslave America’s “persona” so we unhesitatingly “SEE” only what they want us to see …. “FEEL” only what they want us to feel … we trust the illusions they conjure up … we enthusiastically accept their artificially created fear as real … we ardently allow them to “divide” us for no rational reason … save their aversion to color of skin, language, customs, choice of food, choice of deity, choice of “bible” or no bible … conveniently they leave out these divisions, they note are source for and cause for division, were created by them solely to enhance their financial standing while diminishing ours…   

Their choice to create a “prison” based society serves them well as it allows them to utilize the talents of the many at slave or zero wages … under conditions where they control every waking hour and the majority of ones every action … in the process making them mentally and emotionally if not also physically dependent upon them … for their very life…

…And this we label … $ucce$$ful Capitali$m …. Happy New Year …

Is America ready for a non-Christian president?

One has to wonder why the United States has not evolved as quickly as other democracies. Indira Gandhi became prime minister of India in 1966; Golda Meir became prime minister of Israel in 1969 and Margaret Thatcher became prime minister of the United Kingdom in 1979. Yet the United States, a prime model for democracies in the world, has never had a woman president.

One has to wonder why India, a nation of nearly 1.3 billion people, 79.8 percent of whom are Hindu, has had a Sikh prime minister (Manmohan Singh) and a Muslim president (Abdul Kalam), yet for more than a century and a half the chief executive of the United States has always been a Christian.

And this is not a trivial matter. The United States, like no other country in the world, has opened its doors to immigrants. For nearly a quarter of a millennium, it has truly been the land of opportunity. People from all cultures have come here seeking a haven where their hopes and dreams can come true. Or at least most of them…

As our country becomes more diverse, it needs to persuade both its own citizens and all those who hope to become citizens that it will always be a land of limitless opportunity for everyone.

Summary

Several western states are experiencing extreme or exceptional drought conditions. The persistence and intensity of the drought, which began in 2011 in some areas, has received considerable attention from Congress. To date, federal legislative proposals have focused primarily on the management of federal water projects, support for drought-related programs, and needs of fish and wildlife for water. A broad policy question is how Congress might address western drought, drought in any part of the United States, and gaps in water supply and demand.
