      Thank you Chips, Nerdy and all of you BTs and commenters for keeping me sane. I am totally informed without being stressed out because I get my news from TOD and not the corporate anti-PBO gossips and outright liars on the regular and cable networks. THANK YOU! BLESS YOU!

    After listening to your music I ventured to read Pierce – love him to bits – on Michelle Bachmann he says all that needs to be said

    “UNITED NATIONS — The United States is obliged by international law to investigate its citizens suspected of engaging in torture, but even if it does not, Americans who ordered or carried out torture can be prosecuted abroad, by legal bodies including the International Criminal Court, legal experts say.

    Whether they will be is another question. That’s largely a political determination. But calls for international prosecution, legal experts say, are likely to grow so long as the United States chooses not to prosecute its own.

    “If I am someone implicated in the torture report, I am thinking twice about traveling to Europe anytime soon,” said Steve Vladeck, a law professor at American University in Washington. “It puts those governments in a sticky position if someone who is accused of torture presents themselves on that country’s soil.””

      Is that a new one, Bob? >>> #ShooterCheney – if he weren’t so awful and it all weren’t so bizarre, I would have laughed out loud.

    How many times I’ve had to do the same with a similar question!

    Maybe Dems should try this approach (not sure if this is behind a paywall, since it’s one of my few online subscriptions):

    Looks like people like the Kochs need to reinvest from oil to solar:

    Heard on the radio last week (and can’t find on the internet — not a skilled Google user) about a company that is developing solar stickers with graphene, which means that once developed it could be applied to windows because it’s very thin and lightweight — it was a fascinating report, sorry that I can’t link to it.

    And yet words on a parchment would not be enough to deliver slaves from bondage, or provide men and women of every color and creed their full rights and obligations as citizens of the United States. What would be needed were Americans in successive generations who were willing to do their part — through protests and struggle, on the streets and in the courts, through a civil war and civil disobedience and always at great risk — to narrow that gap between the promise of our ideals and the reality of their time.

    We have to Presssssss ON!!!

    I’m tired and don’t have the energy to see if this has been up for a vote in the Senate yet. It’s in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and has passed the House. We can let the Senators know how we feel about this.

    ….All 2,400 acres are part of Apache ancestral and ceremonial lands. So although Republican lawmakers have tried for years to secure the transfer of these lands, they have always run into strong opposition from the San Carlos Apache Tribe and Democratic lawmakers and conservation advocates.

    Apache leaders learned of the inclusion of the provision to the NDAA while attending—ironically—the White House Tribal Nations conference….

    Unless I’m not reading this right – because, quite frankly, I’m shocked – another one bites the dust. Fool me once.

    Excerpt from Stonekettle Station. . .
    The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.
    – William Shakespeare

    It’s really just that simple. . .
    “The United States participated actively and effectively in the negotiation of the Convention. It marks a significant step in the development during this century of international measures against torture and other inhuman treatment or punishment. Ratification of the Convention by the United States will clearly express United States opposition to torture, an abhorrent practice unfortunately still prevalent in the world today. The core provisions of the Convention establish a regime for international cooperation in the criminal prosecution of torturers relying on so-called ‘universal jurisdiction.’ Each State Party is required either to prosecute torturers who are found in its territory or to extradite them to other countries for prosecution.”
    Ronald Reagan, President of the United States, 1984
    Address to the Nation upon signing the UN Convention On Torture
