The Social Poets: Women: Pentagon Rapists Decide If Rapes Prosecuted


Women on Top: How Real Life Has Changed Women'...

The Social Poets: Women: Pentagon Rapists Decide If Rapes Prosecuted: From Denny:  This week two new lawsuits against the military were brought concerning sexual assaults in the military academies.  It was necessary because the women were unable to get investigations into the crimes.  They were also wrongfully discharged as retaliation for reporting their rapes.

This past year sexual assault reports in the military have increased by 60 percent.  Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta reads that as women are more comfortable and trusting to make those reports.  Well, that's one optimistic way to view it.

One one court martial for all those reports

Of the 65 reports, only one resulted in a court martial.  It makes you wonder if only one out of the 65 was truly investigated so the Pentagon threw out this bone to the women's groups to look like they were achieving something significant.  And did I mention the White House declared April as Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month?

The Social Poets: Good News: Rush Limbaugh Kicked Off Philadelphia Station


Rush Limbaugh - Caricature


The Social Poets: Good News: Rush Limbaugh Kicked Off Philadelphia Station: From Denny:  It appears some conservatives have awakened to getting rid of Rush Limbaugh.  OK, actually it's really about boycotts and their profits they don't want to lose. Those darn liberals were just too effective at putting pressure on the advertisers. :)

One of the largest radio markets in the country is Philadelphia, the "city of brotherly love."  The dominant conservative talk radio station there, WPHT, an AM station, has jettisoned "The Rush Limbaugh Show" in favor of a native son, "The Michael Smerconish Show."  Normally, Smerconish's show is time-delayed but with the removal of Limbaugh, Smerconish can now broadcast live in his home market.

You might recognize Smerconish from his guest hosting of Chris Matthews' Hardball show.  I like the guy immensely as he is of agile mind and a balanced moderate opinion, you know, most of America.  Matthews could retire and Smerconish would make a great sequel.

    The Social Poets: Jon Stewart Mocks Outrageous Arizona School Board Fearing Mexican-American Studies

    The Social Poets: Jon Stewart Mocks Outrageous Arizona School Board Fearing Mexican-American Studies: From Denny:  The Daily Show may be a comedy show but Jon Stewart utilizes what is happening right here in America as material.  You can't make up this stuff.  It's unbelievable.  How do these incredibly insensitive - and more importantly, really stupid - people rise to such high positions of authority where they affect the lives of millions of people?  It's scary in its implications.

    It's difficult to believe this superintendent actually has a doctorate in education.  Are you sure this guy didn't lie on his resume or buy his degree from some online scam site?  It's like listening to my Republican Louisiana Senator David Vitter who claims to be a Rhodes scholar and a lawyer who graduated Ivy League schools.  He can barely put a sentence together and lacks rational thinking just like this fool.

    Watch as comic Al Madrigal baits this guy about Mexican-American studies now banned in Arizona's Tucson school district.  The reasons this superintendent gives are incredible, all based only upon hearsay. Hearsay - can you believe it? This guy who heads their school board never even bothered to talk to the teachers of the program or read any of the textbooks.  And he calls himself an educator?  Unbelievable.

    The Social Poets: Jon Stewart Interviews Losing Lawyer On Supreme Court Strip Search Case

    The Social Poets: Jon Stewart Interviews Losing Lawyer On Supreme Court Strip Search Case: From Denny:  Check out Jon Stewart in this unusual interview of the lawyer who lost the most important case for the world.

    If you get arrested for a speeding ticket, jaywalking, a bell too quiet on your bicycle and other minor offences, then you all get arrested and strip searched by the police as a matter of regular procedure. Yes, America has entered the world of the outrageous.

    America, as you know it, no longer exists as we are now officially a police state.  Americans have lost the majority of our rights - like civil rights, privacy rights, and just about everything else they could take.  All our rights have slowly eroded since 9/11 out of the fear of terrorism.

    Police now possess sweeping, authoritarian, unlimited, absolute powers to do whatever they like to you, your spouse, your family, your children, your friends because it is all at the discretion of the police.  If a cop is having a bad day then expect yours to get a lot worse too because there is nothing to stop him.

    The Social Poets: Obama and Supreme Court Order Strip Searches For Minor Offences Too, Impeach Them All


    The Supreme Court of the United States. Washin...


    The Social Poets: Obama and Supreme Court Order Strip Searches For Minor Offences Too, Impeach Them All: From Denny:  The Supreme Court, in its demented wisdom, decided to put all of America on notice.  We all can be strip searched for no good reason.  America is now under lock down and an official police state.  Worried about safety in the jail system, the "Justices" have now effectively jailed all of America.

    Over 700,000 people get arrested for minor offences in America every year.  For what did they get strip searched?  Get this:  riding a bike with an inaudible bell, walking a dog off a leash or driving with a noisy muffler.

    A nun was strip searched for trespassing during an anti-war demonstration, if you drive without a license, failing to use a turn signal are all incidents where this strip search procedure has been employed.  Talk about outrageous.

    The Long Road, An Easter Poem

    Road to nowhere
    From Denny:  An Easter poem about how sacrifice can deliver unexpected pleasant surprises.  With global protests against oppressive governments, like the Arab Spring in the Middle East, and against greedy Big Business like the Occupy Protests in the West, it is evident there is great need in the world.

    When economic times and society get hard pressed what is the one thing you can do about all the wrong going on around you?  You can be a friend.  You can slow down, even come to a full stop on your own life, and look around to see what is happening in your vicinity.

    To address the needs, think of offering some real friendship and mentor those around you.  You will be surprised how many people will tell you how glad they are you took time for them as they thought no one would ever notice how much they were struggling.  It could be at work, at church, your neighborhood, the local grocery store, anywhere.  Offering the fact that you care is often the most appreciated.

    It's Easter week when the concept of rebirth is all around us and the Spring weather sure is heating up a couple of months sooner than usual.  The weather patterns have definitely changed as a result of global warming and climate change.

    Speaking of hot weather, here’s a poem I wrote last July 2008. Sometimes I paint my insights, sometimes I journal my dreams, and, sometimes, those spiritual visions become poetry.

    Since I wrote this poem I ran across a health study (which I placed on my health blog, The Healing Waters, go here) about how friendship helps boost your immune system to overcome disease and give us longer life. That new validation dovetails nicely into this poem about the offering of friendship among strangers.

    Dennys Global Politics: Syria: How Long Can Assad Last? What Are World Leaders Doing To End Killings?

    Dennys Global Politics: Syria: How Long Can Assad Last? What Are World Leaders Doing To End Killings?: From Denny:  Will world leaders be successful in ending the carnage in Syria as the dictator continues to massacre his own people?  Will the Arab nations get serious and quit sitting on the sidelines, always expecting America to fix it with our blood and money?  How much patience do the American people have for yet another war in the Middle East?

    International envoy and former United Nations chief, Kofi Annan, announced today that Assad has agreed to end hostilities by April 10th by pulling out troops and tanks from the big cities.  Of course, few in the international world believe Assad will live up to his agreement as he is known for breaking previous promises.  World leaders now believe that the Annan six-point peace plan has been violated and are working to develop additional plans to curb Assad beside diplomatic courses and economic sanctions.
