our times is their times

In the 1940's the N Y Times, fortunately for me ,did not publish shipping schedules thereby abaiting some of the risk to sailors. Now it seems the editors of that esteemed journal are so blinded by their disgust with the present administration that they do not hesitate,in spite of requests from democrat and republican legislators, to reveal the most effective method we have to interdict the flow of funds among those intent on destroying us. They do not seem to understand that they are part of us. Of course,in the 40's we were allied with Joe Stalin, a times icon then, perhaps that explains their restraint.

Where's the ACLU

Hiding I guess, while eight American marines are being held incommunicado at Camp Pendelton. No charges have been filed against these men , yet they are in solitary confinement while an investigation is underway of alledged atrocity avowed by some Iraqi trying to collect damages. If these soldiers were muslim men arrested and held under the same conditions under some allegation of terrorism, those tireless defenders of the rights of man would be burying the courts with writs.

childrens eyesight at risk

The American Opthamologic Association has issued a warning that children's eyesight is at risk due to exposure to red and green lights. It seems that alternate exposure to these colored lights causes confusion in color transmission to the brain from the percieving rods and cones of the eye. The Association is suggesting that traffic light colors could be changed to blue and red, or green and orange to avoid the repitative red green effect.

Where's Brutus when needed

The Senate of the United States and the congress in general, theoreticaly reflects the views of the electors . That's the theory. Reality is quite different. Seventy per cent of the people want the laws against illegal immigration enforced, congress can't even stop more illegals from arriving.. Eighty per cent of the people believe the f b i , with a court search warrant, should be able to search a crooked congressmans office , but the leaders of both parties in the congress don't. Seventy per cent of the people believe that obtaining records of phone calls to and from suspected terrorists is just fine the Senate objects. Seventy per cent of the people believe that profiling whom to search at airports is common sense congress forbids it. Sixty five per cent of the elderly want the right to die when they see fit legislatures forbid it. For many years these same legislator kept the intelligence agencies from sharing data . So, who do these paragons of wisdom represent, I don't know, but I know who they kow-tow to:the wild eyed extremists of both parties ,who control nominations, certainly not the American people.
