Good Morning!! The light is fading; the darkness is rising. We are on the precipice of a national tragedy, a global cataclysm. We must take time to mourn and then gird ourselves for political battl…

Yep. Reblogged from “How My Heart Speaks”.


How my heart speaks


Who never lost, are unprepared
A Coronet to find!
Who never thirsted
Flagons, and Cooling Tamarind!

Who never climbed the weary league –
Can such a foot explore
The purple territories
On Pizarro’s shore?

How many Legions overcome –
The Emperor will say?
How many Colors taken
On Revolution Day?

How many Bullets bearest?
Hast Thou the Royal scar?
Angels! Write “Promoted”
On this Soldier’s brow!

The Essays of The Man From the North by Rivera Sun Writer, Dandelion Salad November 9, 2016 When the forces of destruction, hate, bigotry, greed, and violence rise into power, there are three things they steal before they plunder the treasury. Stopping them is where the struggle for life begins.

Grieve, get you and yours safe and start. Now.


Facebook is really screwed for me tonight; it won’t let me stay logged in. Maybe it’s just as well. Polls are screwed, the DOW is screwed, NATO has 300,000 on alert, we are screwed. If this goes the way it appears it might, Liberals are going to have to buy guns. Canada won’t let us all in. You all want it, the future of hate, poverty, death and destruction are here. We are the life of Mad Max come real. Goodby Medicare, Social Security, womens  health, ACA, the Supreme Court, National and State parks, child care, home care workers support, student loans, federal minimum wages, public jobs, the environment, clean water, the UN, Estonia. The nature of Trump….the nature of all that is unholy in the Republican party, and the loss of the Fourth Estate; we have left only the shards of ethics, fairness and inclusivity.

I’ve been pretty much offline due to a downed computer. I don’t know when I’ll get back to posting, but I’m working on it. I did see last night’s debate from a friend’s iPad, and it was something unique among a list of strange debates I’ve seen in my life. It was a contest between the classic example of the highly prepared, high achieving, first woman in her field, who knows she has to be 10 percent better than everyone just to be equal, and Rooster T. Foghorn.

If I can figure out how to link the debate transcript here, from the iPad, I will do it. For now, Washington Post has it.
