This is just to inform everyone on my mailing list that Tim and I will be taking a week off for our fifth wedding anniversary. Doesn’t look like the empire needs our help showing everyone how evil and dishonest it is at the moment anyway. Stay safe and please don’t end the world. Love you all.

    I just watched a documentary on Gore Vidal, in which he quoted Pericles, who said something to the effect of “An empire, once acquired, is hard to get rid of.”
    I suddenly wondered what will happen to the US when we are forcibly divested of our empire – hopefully from within. Although I have been encouraging my fellow citizens for years to think about what we would want when we do take our country back.
    When you get back from your anniversary, could you please think about how the United States will handle being divested of the empire and give us your opinion?
    I hope you have a wonderful time this week.

    and the gifts just keep on coming
    it finally happened

  3. Here is another song. It touches me.
    I don’t understand the language, but the beauty is, it doesn’t matter cause the music is universal.
    In celebration of love.
    Ghalla Gurian, by Punjabi MC
    I pray for the Palestinians and I know peace is on the horizon.
    love is timeless

    Anniversary present from Ireland

    Irish MP lays into Israel’s ambassador. No such spine exists within any member of Uncle Scam’s government, not even Omar.


    1. Most excellent.
      Thank God for the Irish!

  5. Is one week enough . . .

    Celebrating You .
    Endless Cheers : )

  6. The world’s going to hell in a handbasket and you’re taking a week off?! You’d better have lots of wild sex and fun to last a year!

  7. My advice on your 5th Anniversary get away time, is to ignore all calls – even suspicious ones. Suspicious things are all round and they are easy to sense. Anyhow, ignore it, especially since it is from the UK, turn off your phone and kiss your hubby on the anniversary during the getaway time.
    Here is another song:
    Just Gimme the light….

    1. ps – that ain’t the first song I wanted to play, and that song wasn’t really what I wanted.
      Let me try again. Here is a good one.
      From Stevie Wonder – a child genius.
      ps – I told my partner for life today a defensive solution for the times we live in… was told in confidence, so I won’t repeat it here, but it had to do with rockets coming from all directions and others messages of defense…based on good science…..based on technology that recognizes windows of opportunity – very precisely and amongst the home-made rockets of frustration.

  8. Happy Anniversary x

  9. You take the fifth and you shut up 😛 Too bad for us, too good for you. Happy anniversary :-))

  10. Happy anniversary. Enjoy and relax.

  12. Caitlin — if you click on link below, you will see Mike Pompeo confessing that as CIA Director, “we lied, cheated, stole”, “we” referring to the CIA and to himself — this bizarre confession, should be publicized far and wide, and would be far more effective (to anyone undecided about this matter) in exposing the truth of how Pompeo, and all others like him, lie all the time, and are therefore never to be trusted — I believe that I’ve written to you before on this matter, and have so far received no response, which I find decidedly strange — what gives? — do you even read these comments — if not, why have them????

      My 30th is coming up as well.
      There are high expectations.
      OK, lets keep the music going….here is another song that I found from this place from another who posted here and the music resonated with me, so why not.
      In celebration of Caitlin and Tim. Long may they be together.
      Come on what is there to lose. Throw out your music ideas for the times. There ain’t gonna be any more posts for a week or so, and so why not I ask?

    Adding my best wishes and congratulations to everyone else’s. Have a lovely break, and come back recharged for more incisive and revelatory musings
    PS I don’t think I’m a robot, so always tick the box that says i’m not. But if I was then wouldn’t I still tick it? After all, there’s never an I AM a robot option, is there?

    1. Good point you raise there Tony. And funny, seriously funny as well…..ha, ha.
      I raise a toast to Caitlyn and her honey named Tim. I mean look at the picture. They must love each other. I just love that.
      That is the kind of binding together that makes us special and I think it is beautiful.
      I raise a toast to the truth!
      May it be revealed in all its glory.

      1. Oh yeah, for the sake of correctness….make that Catlin.
        Happy 5th Anniversary and let the dancing commence. It is a celebration of the truth and it will be memorable.
        Perhaps others will offer up some songs of joy for the occasion, but whether they do or not, let there be music to celebrate LOVE!

        1. Caitlin. (I always seem to get that spelled wrong)
          OK, here is a song and then I’m gone and sorry for my spelling inaduqucies….ha, ha.
          It is by OMC:
          Land of Plenty….

          I reckon their from New Zealand.
          Peace and best to all,
          Congratulations again.

          1. Thanks.
            Land of Plenty – Leonard Cohen
