Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 3/5/2015- organizing files edition

Arrgggh. My computer has become the Wild Wild West where only some things are organized and others simply disappear into the nether regions only to accidentally surface years later. I'm going to start taking a bite of that apple this week, but hah, expect it to be quite the undertaking. Also need to catch up on my pet project hobby, which I've been neglecting for the past week in favor of hunkering down and watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix. My mom gave me some stained glass supplies a few years ago, so am going to seriously look around for possible designs for making a window glass; probably Art Deco since I think it would be easier to cut, plus I may try to put a dinosaur into it:)

Bibi Doesn't Speak for Me. I haven't said much about Netanyahu coming to speak before Congress AS INVITED ONLY BY REPUBLICANS but I believe Republicans were out of line to do this. John Boehner said he deliberately didn't consult with President Obama before doing so, making this not only a secretive, partisan initiative, but showing disrespect for the president. But Netanyahu deciding to accept the Republican invitation and interject himself into American politics, inappropriately,  

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to the U.S. Congress on Tuesday brought the humbug that has characterized all the candidates in this election to a climax. All of them are ignoring the real existential threat to Israel and its ability to survive as a “Jewish and democratic state”: the unending occupation of the territories. Israel’s insistence on ruling over millions of Palestinians in the West Bank who lack civil rights, expanding the settlements and keeping residents of the Gaza Strip under siege is the danger that threatens its future.

Israel is mortgaging its national resources to maintain a dual regime of democracy for Jews and apartheid for Palestinians. But the illusion that the occupation is comfortable and quiet, and that most Israelis are isolated from it, is fated to explode.

In recent years, during which relative security quiet prevailed in the West Bank, Israel embarked on three wars in Gaza that killed thousands of Palestinian civilians – solely in order to maintain the status quo. These periodic “operations,” along with the cessation of negotiations with the Palestinian Authority led by Mahmoud Abbas, have left a moral stain on the Israel Defense Forces, and on the statesmen who sent them into Gaza and on policing missions in Ramallah, Nablus and Hebron.

Apartheid in Israel is NOT okay.

Ringling Brothers Circus will no longer tour with elephants.
