    Funny...I just saw the funniest polling numbers ever. And not at all surprising--

    74% of Democrats think a Democratic politician should resign for sexual harassment, but only 72% of Republicans think a Democratic politician to resign for sexual harassment, while 82% of Democrats think a Republican politician to resign for sexual harassment 54% of Republicans think a Republican politician to resign for sexual harassment. (a source)

    From which I essentially learned that the collected data initially supports two concepts: Republicans have 0 morals related to the treatment of women that actually are borne out in their voting, for all they claim to be the party of morality, and they are, by a much larger margin, hypocrites.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Maybe it's just a selective memory malfunction determined by shamelessly pragmatic algorithms?

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Trump retains significant support from his base still. I mean sure, part of that is Republicans lying to themselves about which news sources to trust and part of it is

    https://www.npr.org/2016/10/23/49889...t-immoral-acts

    The bulk of the GOP apparently cares more about enforcing morality on others than living by it.

    The only particularly optimistic thought there is that while Trump does retain high support among an increasingly hypocritical base. His base is shrinking. I don't think we have clear numbers on how much but the apparent answer to the continuous failures inside the GOP by its membership is that rather then try to fix their party, they'll renounce it. If it shrinks enough then the GOP may be in for a hilarious surprise come 2018.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    I am not surprised,they also wish to rebuild the temple of Solomon where the temple of the rock now resides.

    Well, tomorrow's the big day in Alabama. It'll be interesting at the very least.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.
