“I should’ve died in my 20s. I became successful in my 40s. I became a dad in my 50s. I feel like I’ve stolen a car — a really nice car — and I keep looking in the rearview mirror for flashing lights,” he said in an interview with Biography.com.

RIP.

Follow the money. Electoral politics, politicians and in particular our foreign policy have for far too long been for sale. While there are some subtle shifts, such as the growing number of potential presidential candidates vowing to no longer accept donations from corporate PACs, the democratic pro ... Read more

Militarily speaking, deposing of Iran's ruling clergy is of course very much achievable...so long as the US is willing to put boots on the ground (highly improbable). Also, it's clear that most of Europe and Asia, which unlike the US will most definitely be impacted by any sustained military attack ... Read more

By far and away the US is once again in the pole position. And oh, check out who is outspending everyone in the ME. Not even close. The arms industry is good for business, but terrible for humanity and the planet.

Sadly selling violence is big business -- and so are wars. There are plenty of studies suggesting that heavy exposure to violent games/media can be a risk factor for violent behavior. Please consider signing the petition.

Newsweek is on a path to becoming a truly rubbish source of news (and clickbait) but had to share this article. So at last count Trump feels that Mexicans, Native Americans AND black football players were/are animals that need to be tamed. How the hell is this even remotely acceptable?! #WhiteSupre ...

Indeed Rose. Expect a ramped-up US/Israeli/Saudi propaganda campaign overstating Iran's military threat, nefarious regional activities, calls for regime change and overall vilification of Iranian people. They are laying the groundwork for war.

Group think and idol worship resulting in self-subjugation. We're sheep b/c we choose to be. It's a choice. We've been conditioned to spiritually sleep-walk and allow political parties and government to disproportionately empower itself and institutionalize learned helplessness. And to what end? The ...

Shaun King nicely captures my thoughts on the NFL's decision. And oh, btw, the overwhelming majority of NFL owners are Republican. Robert Kraft (Patriots) who is a staunch Israel supporter and (conveniently) blind to Israel's human right abuses /apartheid policies has historically been a bit more De ... Read more

Thank you for sharing this, especially coverage of US withdrawal from the Iran-deal and how Democratic lawmakers have foolishly contributed to the current situation. For those interested, fast forward to the 7:40 mark.

I dig The Forward (formerly known as The Jewish Daily Forward). It's a left leaning(ish) publication but they do a good job mixing it up with a variety of viewpoints. I definitely recommend it to anyone interested in getting a sense of what's being discussed in the Jewish-American community.

I appreciate you taking the time to share Marco; thank you. At face value I think #7 would resonate more (for me) if the verbiage was slightly revised. I will give this more thought and if something clicks, will share it on this thread.

That said, I really feel where you are coming from with your ... Read more

I love this - thanks for sharing Marco! We also have a topic called +Self-Empowerment where future related posts could live. I found #5 ('More concern about all who are alive, not just a few') to be really interesting. I immediately thought of those who care about human rights, but selectively apply ... Read more
