If Notre Dame makes you feel the need to donate, do it locally. Or for LA fires.

I applaud every, single person who wants to donate to the restoration of Notre Dame.

From what I've read, there are wealthy, European Entrepreneurs who have already pledged HUNDREDS of millions to that cause. I doubt Notre Dame is going to be lacking funds.

If you want to donate, please donate. But think of the three churches in LA and other local causes first please.

I don't say this because of any ill will toward France, Catholics, etc. Just saying it with the thought charity begins at home.

What if Assange had released the Mueller Report/Trump's Taxes?

I believe, with respect to Assange, we should consider the situation from a different standpoint. I bet if he had released the Mueller Report or Trump's taxes there would be a lot of people here defending him.

Sure, he may be a despicable human personally. That is not what the free press is about though. It's not about the character of the publisher or the journalist. It's about their actions in reporting information to the public.

ON EDIT AND IMPORTANT: The charges stem from him assisting Manning. From exposing Bush-Cheney/GOP lies. When they come for people like Maddow it may be too late to stop them.

How can I stop feeling?

Some philosopher in the past said:
life is a tragedy for those who feel and a comedy for those who think"

I suspect I'm cursed because I feel and I think.

It's the feeling that gets me into the most trouble. Because I have empathy for others. I feel so strongly about it when I believe others have been wronged or mistreated.

The world, alas, is not built upon fair and equitable though.
