Tehran to send fleet to West Atlantic, says Iranian rear admiral

How will you feel when those ships you see off the point at #Montauk are Iranian destroyers? Will you say #ThanksObama or #ThanksTrumpy?
I already feel violated. #Iran

Flea: Removing Music Education From Schools Is ‘Child Abuse’

Take the art out of school and you take the heart out of our children. It IS #ChildAbuse. Abuse by deprivation. Why not take away sunlight and recess while you’re at it. A well rounded education MUST include music, art and sports…and Everyone has a fucking right to an excellent, well rounded education in an open, democratic society. Capitalism doesn’t have to mean cruelty, people. Don’t believe the lies.
IF we truly had one person / one vote in this country, our children would have the best education, everyone would have affordable health care, and poverty would be next to nothing. But as long as we let corporate interests steer public policy, money is power and The People come last. The voice of Lockheed Martin, JP Morgan and Aetna drown out the the vote…the voices…of thousands of Americans. We ALLOW the suffering of our fellow Americans with our silence, as the polarity in America is leveraged to maximize profit for the wealthy.
Time to put up or shut up people. I’ll never shut up.

Trump’s campaign launches ad blaming Democrats, the media, career politicians

Wow. He’s already ACTIVELY Campaigning for 2020. Just fucking wow.
Never have I ever seen a sitting President campaigning for reelection already, after only 6 months in office…accomplishing just about NONE of his stated goals, other than a mish-mosh of semi-legal to illegal executive orders that have little effect, other than creating confusion and stress. No wall. No repeal/replace Obamacare. No tax reform. No infrastructure.
No real progress at all…other than bringing the country to the brink of war with a Third World WannaBe power controlled by a semi-sane spoiled adolescent tyrant.
And Trump’s backers think that it’s a great idea, going to war with North Korea, actually improving his approval rating. What the fuck is wrong with you people?

Aren’t we all a little afraid of exactly this? Seems like it used to be easier to give life meaning…back when we embraced the Arts for their intrinsic value, not just their worth in dollars. But then we’ve cut funding to our schools, who routinely choose sports programs to receive funding, over art and music programs, leaving our children deficient, for generations, in any way to value themselves, other than wealth and fame. It’s kinda sad.
I’ll likely never be famous or rich. Someday, maybe the world will discover my artistic endeavors, or maybe they won’t. In either case, I will always know that my life hasn’t been useless because of my creations. ALL of them, regardless of their perceived value to society. THAT is what Art and Music education taught ME.
Some things just have intrinsic value that you can’t hang a price tag on. I guess I’m lucky I’m old enough to remember when a “decent education” included art, music, AND sports, so that nearly ALL students could seek self reward in something…that SOMETHING that helps make us feel whole.

Marijuana’s Popularity Among US Adults Continues to Grow. Here’s Why

#News420
My guess: people are just more likely to admit they LOVE it than ever before…and what’s not to love? Weed’s never been better and it SHOULD start getting MUCH cheaper.
