When an hour or two goes by and you forgot to breath

while sitting on the precipitous edge of your seat you know you’ve just seen a real debate!

Whew! I love them all of them!

Netflix has a lot of new documentaries on Hitler

All aspects of Hitler and WWII are covered, from multiple documentaries on the evolution of the concentration camps into death camps, the systematic murder of entire Jewish communities and villages during the invasion of Russia, code named Operation Barbarossa, which is also dealt with in various documentaries. There are some on the specific weapons of war like the Panzer tanks, the Schaefer Gustav cannon which was the largest-calibre rifled weapon ever used in combat and, in terms of overall weight, the heaviest mobile artillery piece ever built. It fired the heaviest shells of any artillery piece. Also there are multiple documentaries of Hitler’s rise to power and on all his Nazi generals and officers who implemented the genocide. There are documentaries of interviews with Holocaust survivors.

I have been watching many of them because I want to know what really happened. Because it’s important to know the facts of the rise of the Third Reich. Because it seems to be taking a foothold in our own country. We must never let this happen. Never.

Valerie Plame, Democrat, has announced she's running for Congress

in New Mexico. It’s an open seat in the House. I saw it yesterday on MSNBC. She wants to make New Mexico the state for renewable energy. We have a lot of sunlight and a lot of wind in New Mexico, and plenty of wide open desert. That got my attention since I happen to think climate change is our most important issue.

Right now my Congressman is Ben Luján but he’s running for the Senate in the next election, which means she’ll be my Congresswoman!
