Let’s get together and feel alright ….

At the end of this politically divisive and in some ways emotional week, I think we all need a kumbayah moment, don’t you? Something to remind us that what we have in common far outweighs what divides us?

I’m glad we agree. Take it away, Bob …

City of Anniston announces partnership with U.S. Justice Department to resolve racial tension

The city of Anniston announced Friday a partnership with a federal agency to train police officers to be more racially sensitive and to improve community dialogue on race-related issues.

The announcement comes a week after City Manager Brian Johnson fired one police officer and accepted the retirement of another for their ties to a Southern secessionist organization some civil rights advocates say is a hate group.

A Kumbaya moment?

I've been aiming for a kumbaya lifetime.

From the liner notes: "The Fish" was Chris Squire's nickname. He earned it primarily due to his very long baths he would take, back when several members lived in the same flat and had to share the bathroom."

Great live version.

GOP HATES AMERICA a few seconds ago

June has been a horrible month for the GOP!!!!

1 Indictment (Hastert)
2 Pedophiles (Duggar & Hastert)
1 Transgender (Catelyn Jenner)
1 Briebart Terrorist (Dylann Roof)
1 White Supremacist donating to the GOP candidates (Walker, Cruz, Paul & Santorum)
1 Donald Trump is running for POTUS (Thank you, Thank you)
3 States removed the Rebel Flag
1 Sarah Palin got fired
1 Obamacare upheld by 6 justices
1 Gay Marriage is now law

Awesome bass line on this number.  I have to admit I was skeptical when I heard that a couple of Buggles members were joining the group, but "Drama" is among my favorite YES albums.  Chris and the guys really cook on this number:

Climate change is here. See Pakistan with 1200 killed from heat. This is the future the rw gave us for money. Never ever listen to the rw. Enough with their ignorance and burning churches.

It isn't like filling the atmosphere with enough CO2 to literally cook us is a big deal or anything.


I really don't understand people who can be led to believe the National Academy of Sciences is scamming anybody. It boggles my mind. It just boggles my mind. It is a very elite group of scientists, elected by their peers, for the sole purpose of informing our government on matters of science. They consider it an honor to serve and they do it pro bono.


Am I safe to assume you won't be gay-marrying a black man anytime soon?

I really don't understand why you make up strawmen to rail against.  Did I say the NAS was scamming anybody?


"Am I safe to assume you won't be gay-marrying a black man anytime soon?"

That would be a safe assumption.  Are you?

Save black churches or give 3.4 billion to Elon Musk to keep blowing up rockets and tweeting about it-


The far left and far right need to over run by middle America.


Record-High 60% of Americans Support Same-Sex Marriage

Exactly- would have liked to seen a little more patience for the states to turnover v. a little bit of a hollow victory-  but everyone has an opinion I suppose.

@YouLibs @_GodlessHeathen_ I don't have anything against gays, and neither does Willie.  I love science.  Made my living at it.


It is your right to not like ignorant bigots.  You know any?

Jam - "the time for pretending that ignorant public frauds and scientific know nothings are relevant is over"


All those Republicans running for president in 2016 say WHAT!!!!

@JamVet @_GodlessHeathen_ Redundancy is inefficiency.  More Federal Agencies begging for money to study Climate Change is what it is.


When our brave astronauts starve to death on the ISS, you can esplane to the families that NASA was busy working on Climate Change along with 20 other Fed agencies.

Thankfully the Ruskies haven't redirected the mission of their space program to other pursuits and they can deliver some groceries to ISS.

Why does their expertise and amazing credentials of exploration, discovery and education bother you vis a vis anthropogenic climate change?

They are the brightest of the brightest; the best of the best.

The vanguards.

And what of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Chemical Society, American Geophysical Union, American Medical Association, American Meteorological Society, American Physical Society, The Geological Society of America, U.S. National Academy of Science and the nearly 200 worldwide scientific organizations that hold the position that climate change has been caused by human action? 

As is the case with that flag, the time for pretending that ignorant political frauds and scientific know nothings are relevant is over.

The time for doing nothing is over...
