    You put your Right foot in, you put your Right foot out, you put your Right foot in (your mouth) and shake it all about…

    Very Buddhist, taking all of your merit and tossing it away for the benefit of someone else. We could do with more of it.

    1) White enough to pass, she could only do so if she got away from where she was known to be a slave. Her master was starting to look at her with those eyes her older sister knew so well. Yes, she knew to follow the Drinking Gourd, but how could she find the Underground Railroad? What if she asked the wrong person? Her Massa, bad and mean as he was, wasn’t at all the worst she had heard tell of.

    A house! But could she even get to it, and would she want to? Never mind. Not her choice, now.

    2) With the yellow star torn off her clothing, she didn’t look obviously Jewish. Her parents and brother were going to die in whatever camp they were marching to, through the snow with no winter coats, with their shoes falling apart, and with next to no food. Or more likely they would die before they could even get there. Neither her family nor the guards had noticed her fall down from weakness, but after the stumbling column disappeared through the trees, and she managed to get up, which way should she go?

    A house! But could she even get to it, and would she want to? Never mind. Not her choice, now.

    3+) Actually, I know enough history to go on in this vein all day. Tweak the artwork and keep the girl, and it could be any ancient imperial war (see Euripides, The Trojan Women, for example), or Syria with ISIS or Northern Nigeria with Boko Haram or Cambodia with the Khmer Rouge or North Korea with the Kim Dynasty or Haiti for two centuries and more or a hundred other places over thousands of years.

    The earliest such story that I know of was They, by Robert Heinlein, written in 1941, and reprinted in various collections, including 6 X H and The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag. See also Of Men and Monsters, by William Tenn.

    Watch out, kid, or the Glaroon will get you!

    The deniers cannot allow themselves to imagine that warming oceans in the tropics means more evaporation all year round, and it has to come down somewhere, whether as rain or snow or hail or sleet. So, yes, more snow in winter means Global Warming is real. See also the XKCD strip Cold at http://xkcd.com/1321/

    Climate Change is not the correct term. That’s what Frank Luntz told Republicans to call Global Warming.

    I’m a Buddhist priest. Preaching about reality is part of what I do.

    Actually, Einstein never said that. There are just people who wish he had, plus the one who made it up for a Narcotics Anonymous publication, the same as Parson Weems making up the stupid tale about young Washington being stupid enough to chop down a valuable cherry tree. And all of the other pseudo-patriotic liars who think that lying over and over again makes patriotism better.

    I’ll tell you what Einstein did say. “Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And I’m not sure about the universe.”

    The man who invented the lethal injection protocol now says that it was the biggest mistake of his life, and has become an Episcopal priest. A little like the slave ship captain who wrote the hymn Amazing Grace and became an Anglican priest and a leader in the anti-slavery movement two centuries ago. We could do with more who can come to see the errors of their ways.

    Everything for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.—Adam Smith, Wealth of Nations

    Yes, Rush told us that the ACA Web sites are scams, and look! Republicans and criminals are putting up scam imitation ACA Web sites. Law enforcement can only shut down the financial scammers and identity thieves. Under the First Amendment, lying for political gain is not a crime.
