This is rather interesting...


This will give you a feel for how huge the Oroville Dam's damaged spillway was-- yikes

Fascinating read-- Red America vs. Blue America: State Maps lllustrate the Difference

Just stumbled upon this-- lots of interesting data

As Justice Brandeis said, the individual states are laboratories of democratic policy. Instead of doing everything at the federal level and trying to pass standardized policies over diverse populations from different states, our system of government allows states wide latitude to implement their own ideas. Sometimes, these ideas travel to other states or the federal legislature (ex. Massachusetts’s RomneyCare was reborn as the federal ObamaCare) and sometimes they die because they are ineffective.

In this article, I will present many maps, detailing widespread trends including everything from education and health to income equality and happiness. These maps will draw a clear and distinct pattern, where states with conservative leanings tend to have poorer societal outcomes and states with more progressive leanings tend to have better policy outcomes.

…but first, we need to identify conservative and progressive leaning areas.



How PROUD I am of those Americans-- they're asserting with every fiber of their being that WE'RE MAD AS HELL AND AREN'T TAKING IT!!

So much emotion (and anger) in their words-- so much audience support-- just fantastic!!

She looks like a Barbie doll... and is about as animated

Fired Up And Ready To Go! Protestors Continue the Legacy of Hope Inspired by President Obama


The imminent threat posed by the new administration and the Republican controlled Congress is stirring tens of thousands of people to make unprecedented numbers of phone calls to Representatives and Senators along with making record breaking donations to organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood.

Yes, since the inauguration people have been pouring into the streets and assembling in great numbers to resist the politics of hate and fear and prejudice. All across America people are fired up and ready to go!

More the people of this land are showing tremendous resilience in the fight for dignity and decency. Despite the very real trauma felt by millions of Americans following the election and still to this day as executive orders, cabinet confirmations, and other congressional votes inflict additional fear, anxiety, and distress on the people of this country and around the world, the energy and resolve for standing up for the deepest moral values that shape our democracy continues to grow.

You came here because you believe what this country can be.



Perfectly put, Glamrock!!


There's no place for them in today's world and it's becoming more and more apparent!!

while sticking it to Trumpty Dumpty at the same time!!

Nine Places Unhappy People Look for Happiness

“Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling.” —Margaret Lee Runbeck

Happy people know that happiness is a choice. They know it is not a reaction to present circumstances. Instead, happiness is an available decision despite them. They have removed the thinking that waits for everything to be perfect before joy in life is experienced.

On the other hand, unhappy people are always searching for happiness. They believe happiness
is reliant upon the acquisition of something new or something different. They are constantly chasing, but never attaining. Often times, they search for it in all the wrong places.
(emphases mine)

Consider this list of 9 Places Unhappy People Look for Happiness.
