    Thank You @Donna-Luisa Eversley for tagging me in, I wonder how I had missed on this post

    I agree with you, on taking stand for the Right.

    Your poem is so warming and heart touching.
    For me its simple no religon supports violance and those who support it belong to no religion.
    We all the Children of the almighty and we need to be treated with equality.

    Sending you Hugs my friend 😘😇

    Unfortunately, what the current president of our USA does not understand is that the remedy to terrorism is not hostility toward the already hostile...It's like taking a stick and whacking mindlessly at a BEES nest...(Pardon the pun)...This is no laughing matter for any of us...especially those of us who despise the very thought of enduring the next four years with a schoolyard bully pushing the vulnerable to the ground and expecting everyone to cheer...The ones that do are the fearful...and no border wall will ever be high enough to "repeal and replace" genuine understanding;-) This is a beautiful poem @Donna-Luisa Eversley...It gives me hope for humanity;-)

    Ah, where stands the worth of this little globe, our world, in the vastness of the whole Universe. And the true master of this whole, expansive Universe is the Almighty Lord, and we humans, in this world, are just helpless, weak with temporal stay. Yet, with little power and dusty wealth, how man becomes prodigal, egoistic, arrogant, and marches forth to conquer the world and make others under oppression. Here's, one of my poems, I wish to post here:

    Chronicles


    In the business of living—

    how well are men compounded

    Nothing best, yet brief reflections

    of mingled realities and distress

    With an overflow of chronicles sad

    there’s an imprint of misery

    Let some gracious celestial powers descend

    to check the beggared lives and

    move the blameworthy souls.

    #54 Preston, I understand your confusion. It was originally supposed to be a march about women's issues, but with the political roller coaster that is occurring and the numerous policy issues that were dividing the country the women's march became much much more. In our own march the name was officially changed to the Human Rights, Justice, & Equality March. The originators of the march in DC followed this same train of thought as I understand from the speech one of the organizers gave. It's because all these issues are women's issues. LGBT rights are women's issues, equality, immigration, justice; they are all women's issues, so they came together. I'm sorry those in St Louis had disagreements because it was supposed to be inclusive and tolerant; that was the whole point. Otherwise there wouldn't have been men marching right beside us! Fathers carrying their young daughters on their shoulders with signs that read; I march for my little girl. Or Christian mother's marching beside their gay sons and daughters with signs that read; equality includes everyone or God loves my gay son too (yes I saw these signs). It was a moving day Preston and one I will never forget.

    I think it was the same weekend in St. Louis that there was a women march. I was working at an Autoshow. There were a lot of supporters and I was very happy for everyone marching and peacefully using their First Amendment Rights. What I didn't like was at the women march in St. Louis was there was no common theme. Even on the Metro Train, even though women were wearing the same shirts, they were all marching for different causes. One group next to me was pro-life trying to support Trump, one group of women was talking about equal rights but wouldn't speak on which rights of women needed to be solved, the next group was only their to try to bring back Hillary, a fourth group was marching for Men who want to act like women to have the rights of women, then I saw another group protesting the national security issues. I watch about ten minutes of the women getting together, yet their was a lot are disagreement among the groups. Certain women said they other women where not allowed to be at this march. So, What was the main theme of this march?

    Worldly Disputes

    By the uses of faith and reason
    let men judge their plain folly
    There’s nothing in worldly disputes
    but flaws of untruth, precepts of idiocy
    And, more trouble in the periods of existence
    that pays regard to mistaken subjects
    Lo! its an outbreak of idle deeds
    which oft shadows common sense.

    #43 Oops, accidentally deleted my reply:

    What is coming out is that the efforts to put him into the wh began in prior to 2010, and then Congress became GOP dominant. They used the media and the Tea Party to feed into the people's frustrations and turn it into irrational anger. You hear this negativity every day for 6 years and it seeps into your pores. They laid their groundwork well and that is why he felt confident in making that statement, even though I think it shook a few people in the party.
    The thing about such a campaign is they know it will be easy to punch holes in that dam and that is the reason for the drastic measures they are taking now, and the campaign to clamp down on the media. If they can turn this country into a military state quickly then we may see the largest 'democracy' fall. I don't think they were counting on The Resistance and so they are getting careless...They made a huge mistake; that the American people would stay gullible. They are losing support daily and the pressure is being put on the rest of the party. If they don't get the 'control' they are aiming for by mid-term elections they know they will have lost the war...It will be the next 22 months that will speak volumes. IMHO

    #29 @Pamela 🐝 Williams - that is a crucial topic for discussion. The knee-jerk, bullying sentiment that 'if you don't love the US as it is right now, you are a communist' that aims to silence clear, rational discussions by making someone feel "wrong".

    That specific tendency - the extreme polarization of any idea or opinion - is exactly part of the malaise that has changed us from a country of messy, flawed, but essential tolerance to one of intolerance in around 3 or 4 decades.

    The communism trope is simply deployed to stop someone from continuing the initial point they were making.

    We need clarity so profoundly right now. That is the way forward.

    Alas the Martians are no more, so Mars is simply the planetary equivalent of early settlement Australia, we can place all the personal branding people that Douglas N. Adams once designed the B-Ark for. This time we will keep the prisoners though as prison workers.

    Human beings in jam jars - that is actually where civilization is in terms of how evolved it really is. The good news is that we are still evolving, the bad news is that it is not fast enough. The most amazing people are those who invited refugee's into their own homes - but that is the road lesser traveled. We only know where we are on this issue, when the territory is our own home. Empathy at our own individual door step has a different face than when a government takes responsibility for it. Remember Bablyon was in Iraq and the Rastafarians keep singing about the fate of Bablyon as a allegory for the United States. Empires rise, empires fall. We don't need to go to Mars, for the way humanity is proceeding, it seems they want Earth to look like Mars.

    This *Was* the US policy for refugees- Among those who pass background checks, a small percentage are referred for overseas resettlement based on criteria designed to determine the most vulnerable cases. This group may include survivors of torture, victims of sexual violence, targets of political persecution, the medically needy, families with multiple children and a female head of household. How long does the whole process take?
    Eighteen to 24 months on average.
    So even after the torture, rape and more it still takes up to 2 yrs for the process to be completed. Now, we have a new Prez who just put a halt on helping those who will probably die if they don't get refuge in another country.
    If there is a God, it would be 'one world,' not 'Countries' that are defined by borders, distance and Men.

    #5 One of the most common lies in my country is that "people have been uneducated and made ignorant." Education is "one of the" government's responsibilities, but "main responsibility" of the individuals. I grew up in the same country, and people call me "The Walking Library," because nobody stopped me from reading, searching, exploring, and learning. My son goes to school, but as his father, it's me who is responsible for his education foremost, not his teachers. And if those teachers are somehow wrong about something, I would emphasize it, too! When I was teaching English classes, my students (and they were adults, not kids or teens) would ask me "Can we talk English as good as you do?" I would always come up with the same answer: "If you don't want to learn, nobody can teach you. If you do, you will learn despite me!"

I truly believe we are being manipulated by our leadership creating divisive issues in race, sex and religion to name a few. Unfortunately the skills to do so are well honed and most good people do not anticipate treachery. There is simply no greater villain than those who would divide us in hatred and mistrust. We really can not blame our leadership or media, as they would have no power if we failed to follow. There is a better way, we must simply step off the path and hate no more.

    @Dr. Allen Brown Sadly enough, our God-given rights are being flushed down the toilet as an excuse for keeping us safe. Meanwhile, police departments are being given weapons that, Constitutionally, they never should have had in the first place. Because no one is taught how to think critically, the public still swallows the 9/11 lie, despite experts like Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and Pilots for 9/11 Truth having a plethora of evidence that the whole story around 9/11 was fabricated. We live in a country that is rapidly taking on the aspects of the State that Orwell mentioned in "1984". Books are being removed from library shelves (for example) that were written during WWII...because (I suspect) they challenge some of the most basic ideas about Hitler's actions vis-a-vis Poland among other things, like Hitler's peace treaty with Great Britain . When all the books of that era are finally gone, and the people who fought in the War are dead, the State is free to rewrite history to its liking. This is but one example of the evil being perpetrated against the American people and the rest of the world.

    no, HER data is consistent with my argument - that when you remove the hyperbole of Social Justice and look at specific industries and account with education levels, experience, and time in position - the difference between salaries is most often accounted for my the differentiation of overtime hours vs short shift hours and not a function of gender discrimination. There is no statistically viable wage gap. Data doesn't support it - Market performance doesn't show it. And if you READ my article, and WATCHED the videos - that is the argument I made throughout. Trot out those industries that Goldin is adamant about - and I will let math settle the issue; because that is what math does.

    #9 @Brian McKenzie. Thank you for the data. I agree with your point about pharmacy. In the statement that I quoted, Goldin was indeed praising pharmacy as one of the few industries with a linear relationship between pay and hours worked. This holds for men and women. She was explaining some of the technological advances that have made this possible. Your data are consistent with her arguments about pharmacy. Goldin's data also suggest that many industries do not have this linear relationship between hours worked and pay.

    #8 Women in pharmacy are 53% of the work force market sector according to 2011 census date, in the same sampling period women in the field received a median pay of 111,000 for the profession - 92% of the wage of men in the same sector - In an article from CNN Money - GOLDIN states "Women with children earn less largely because they work fewer hours, source citation: http://cnnmon.ie/237AcBr The article further highlights - "there is a small gap, but it can be almost entirely explained by some men working longer hours - - not discrimination." Economics is not Sociology - Sociology surely is not Economics. They are not interchangeable because of 'feels' - numbers, statistics, reporting quantifiers and market practice don't give credence to the rant.

    #5 As we consider women with and without children in the workplace, the question becomes one for sociologists. Why is work organized in a way that provides large differentials for more consecutive hours in the office and does it need to be that way? I met with Claudia Goldin last year, from that conversation and her AEA address, I believe that she discusses how some firms and occupations organize work to create a linear relationship between consecutive hours worked and pay, which benefits people who value flexibility (see the quote from Goldin below). I think it is best to let all bees view her speech, download her papers and decide for themselves. @Brian Mckenzie, we may have to agree to disagree.

    GOLDIN: … My favorite example is pharmacy, in which there’s virtually no part-time penalty, in which there is very little ownership now in terms of independent pharmacies. …So, there have been changes in pharmacy that have led pharmacists to be better substitutes for each other — the use of highly standardized drugs, for example, less compounding, less individual, less need for a particular pharmacist to deal with you. Information technologies have been absolutely essential. When you go to the pharmacist, it could be any of the pharmacists working there who are intelligent and professional and can read the information about you. So some of what has happened that has been good for women comes from changes that I call organic, and they simply happen because of various technological advances that make each pharmacist a perfect puzzle piece for another pharmacist. And also, I mean, go to Silicon Valley and they don’t talk about family time, they talk about play time, and it’s work-life balance rather than just work-family balance.”

    #4 @Michele Williams Goldin agrees with Anne-Marie Slaughter; in that 'If you take women who don’t have care-giving obligations, they’re almost equal with men. It’s somewhere in the 95 percent range. But when women then have children, or again are caring for their own parents or other sick family members who need care, then they need to work differently.' She terms it "Temporal Flexibility". In that if you compare same and similar family status workers; between the genders - there is minimal statistical difference between pay, by her account 5% by BLS numbers 3% : It is when women leave the work force to have children, or reduce their hours to care for aging parents while the man increases his hours and accumulates overtime that the 'gap' appears.
    Damn Math. * source http://bit.ly/1Rs87RZ The answer - is if you want to be wealthy and get ahead in the labor force - don't get married, don't have kids - and trust me; the men of MGTOW are all too aware of that paradigm - it is why we are not getting married, and certainly not breeding mini-mes

    #2 @Brian Mckenzie I understand and share your frustration over the flawed statistical analysis of the gender pay gap that enflames people’s emotions. However, that does not change the fact that rigorous research in economics, research that controls for education, experience, age and industry, for instance, finds a persistent gender pay gap. The gap is smaller than the overall averages reported in the media, but significant and persistent across most industries. I would recommend the highly rigorous and respected work by two award-winning economists, Claudia Goldin, a chaired professor of economics at Harvard University and Francine Blau, a chaired professor of economics at Cornell University. The gender pay gap is not an issue for radical feminists alone; it is an issue for human beings, men and women, who care about a social structure that is unequal and want their daughters to be paid fairly.

    I agree with your point of view @Brian McKenzie radical feminists complain so much about wages or legal natters being unfair, but as you are going to write an article about it, I don't see any woman complaining about the rights they are awarded with when there's a divorce.

    I have had my fill of Social Justice Warrior shit - I am done with it. They will bring emotions and feels to an argument that requires math, statistics, economics and hard number analysis - they never survive the evidence; not once, not yet.

    I agree. My own precious daughter entered an oppressive marriage and was horribly mistreated by her husband and his parents. It happened right here in the US. It's a tragedy no matter what country you live in or what religion you belong to. She is lost to me and my heart breaks everyday. I miss her so much. In my eyes and heart she is and always will be my precious little girl.
