I drove past this between Salida and Cotopaxi on State Highway 50 in Colorado. I had to turn around and tell whoever that I stood with them totally assuming I was correct. I was and got the biggest hug of appreciation for doing so.

From my understanding, there are close to 3000 children being held around this country after being seized from their parents at the border.

Many will never see their Mom and Dad again because Republicans are totally evil.

You bastards!


Could You Torture Someone?

It was one of the most infamous experiments in history, offering compelling evidence that almost everybody is capable of great evil. In a controversial series of studies that started in 1961, Stanley Milgram demonstrated the horrifying extent to which people will follow orders, even when their actions seem to be inflicting serious harm on others

An interesting read about the human condition and the possibility that most of us may have torture tendency's. There are questions about this study although there is certainly some merit to it. Scary.


  1. I have no doubt that most of us could, in the right circumstances. That's one of the reasons to make sure there are some strong prohibitions in place, both legal and ethical, to prevent it.

  2. Just some bad apples the Pentagon said.

    Resisting social pressure and orders from a trusted superior is much harder to do than to torture a stranger.

  3. Those who are forced to torture suffer as much from the experience as those tortured. It is dehumanizing for both. It's so easy as one in the position of power, yet removed from the actual experience to justify torture. Did Darth Cheney actually torture anyone even if it is in his own words "A no brainer"

    BTW, love the picture of the rainbow trout. Brings back good memories of fishing with my Grandfather at Lake Isabel when young.

  4. remember our dear VP authorized it....... and no one seems to want to do anything about it
