Nov 17, 2015 SeMe commented on Why Putting the French Flag on the Space Needle Is Racist.
I agree we should support the French and show solidarity for their dead, but its lying to say that we dont undervalue other peoples sufferring. Brother Charles is right. Funny thing is, there are way more citizens of Lebanese descent living in the USA. There are thousands and entire communities of Lebanese living in Michigan alone. But of course to the majority of white folks in Sea town, they are not Americans or american like, and as always I see that Charles remains their favorite target for their thinly veiled racist views.

Jun 6, 2014 SeMe commented on Mayor, County Executive, and Governor Respond to Seattle Pacific University Shooting and Call for Action on Gun Violence.
As a veteran of a long forgotten war, I detest guns and consider that amount of power evil, I have never touched another one after my war was over. We were meant for better things you and me. Unfortunately the constitutional fetish over something that was written in the time of muskets will keep change from ever happening. Now they have a new boogey man in the mentally ill and a new villain. Europe has mentally ill, but those shootings don't happen there weekly. There was before this a school of little kindergardeners shot up and nothing happened. Nothing will happen because a lot of Dems are gun enthusiasts and act like we live in an age where we have to hunt for our food.
May 2, 2014 SeMe commented on Whoa! I Like Courtney Love's New Jam.
I agree Mike and yes Hole was an important and talented band. Great sound and sounded great live, unless the widow was totally wasted. I never understood all the hate directed at Courtney. I liked her music and the rest well too me it looked like some mental illness drug convo.

Important battle, but the war turned with the soviet counter offensive in Stalingrad. The U S and the allies fought with bravery and honor, but let's give the rushkies their due. They won the war.

Anarchy is nothing more than radical democracy.

Hell is other people. Just because we like being alone doesn't make us lonely.

The actor in that pic is South African. Charles, did you get a chance to read the last NYTimes magazine piece on Nelson Mandela. It talks about how he related better with the south African corporate bosses and ignored the underclass? Interesting read. Wondering what your take is on that piece. It's part of Lives they lived on the Magazine.
