convention thoughts

I do not watch political conventions although it's impossible not to get a few clips from them. I see them as all about manipulation, propaganda and stirring up emotions. 

For those who just watched the two political conventions, excited over American power and might, over how exceptional we are, this is a link worth reading.


America loves to toot its own horn, remind itself how great it is, but how does that play elsewhere? Do most Americans care-- since anyone who sees us other than we promote ourselves is obviously an ingrate...

I wish I could walk along the Yellowstone River right now. Need a little of the peace I have found there even in troubled times. This photo was from 2008.
