Climate scientists, activists, and generally concerned know what I'm talkin about: 2 steps forward, 4 steps sideways, and 2 steps back....
Since my last blog posting about the Yarmouth police department and a bitter feud that has been raging for over two years regarding the departments posting of local crimes on their Facebook page, the page has been very community friendly.
Almost exclusively they posted information about community events, I counted four arrests. So either they toned it down as requested by local businesses, they toned it down for some other reason or this is all a bunch of complaining about nothing. As a long time follower of their Facebook page, I think it's clearly been toned down.
John Boehner said, “So we’re expecting this administration to annihilate the Republican Party. And let me tell you, I do believe that is their goal, to just shove it into the dust bin of history”.
But who is actually digging the deep hole the GOP is getting into?
Every budget proposal and new legislation of the GOP seems to be yet another opportunity to show their lack of compassion for the American people.
In the farm bill they proposed to cut billions of dollars from the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) or informally, food stamps, while increasing farm subsidies to the corporate agriculture industry.

Gabriel Gomez sure likes to dish it, but like all bullies he just can't take it, so he reduces his campaign to name-calling. That's because, like the rest of today's Republican Party, he's got nothing to offer but divisiveness and obstructionism -certainly no real ideas on how to govern.
Many of us are familiar with the Chinese proverb “women hold up half the sky” that Mao Tse-tung gave new life to in order to raise the status of women in the new China. Perhaps fewer people have heard “Let a hundred flowers bloom,” a slogan from the same period that encourages people to come forward with lots of ways of doing things as well as being creative!
Many many years ago when I was a teen actor in The Fisherman's Players on the outer cape (1968-1971 to be exact), Kevin Kelly of the Boston Globe wrote that our theater gave people "something to think about".
Too many veterans and their needs are being ignored.
They need to be remembered too.
