ROE VERSUS WADE

Please remind your friends that abortion wasn't always legal, and could be made illegal again if the GOP gets its way.

GOP ATTORNEYS GENERAL --VOTING RIGHTS ACT SHOULD BE STRUCK DOWN

Just in case their program wasn't clear before, they're making it explicit : the GOP thinks the Voting Rights Act should be struck down as unconstitutional -- rv

Mass murder

A very sad state of affairs for 77 dead people in Norway their mass murder got only 21 yrs
How sad they who are dead will never see the wonderful Norway or let the wind in their hair
No he can walk free in just 21 years and maybe sooner
I feel where is the justice where is the justice?


In their memory may their souls rest in peace

Robert Reich

I've been struck by the baldness of Romney's repetitive lies about Obama -- that Obama ended the work requirement under welfare, for example, or that Obama's Affordable Care Act cuts $716 billion from Medicare benefits.

I've been directly involved in seven presidential campaigns, and I don't recall a presidential candidate lying with such audacity, over and over again, even in the face of mainstream media calling him on it.

It may be because such lies are effective. Polls show that voters are starting to believe them, especially in swing states where they're being repeated constantly in media spots, financed by Romney's super PAC or ancillary PACs and so-called "social welfare" organizations (political fronts disguised as charities, such as Karl Rove and the Koch brothers have set up).
...

But what does this tell us about Romney's character? We knew he was a cypher -- that he'll say and do whatever is expedient, change positions like a chameleon, eschew any core principles.

Yet resorting to outright lies -- and organizing a presidential campaign around a series of lies -- reveals a whole new level of cynicism, a profound disdain for what remains of civility in public life, and a disrespect of the democratic process.

Can someone who is willing to resort to such calculated lies be worthy of the public's trust with the most powerful office in the world?

"LADIES NIGHT" WITH THE REPUBLICANS

DO YOU SEE ANY--LADIES THAT IS



DARK AGES THE GOP

BREAKING:

The Republican Party is once again set to enshrine into its official platform support for "a human life amendment" to the Constitution that would outlaw abortion without making explicit exemptions for rape or incest, according to draft language of the platform obtained exclusively by CNN late Monday.

"Faithful to the 'self-evident' truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed," the draft platform declares. "We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment's protections apply to unborn children."

GOP AND 'LEGITIMATE 'RAPE THEY ARE INSANE

Conservative religious fanaticism condemn a teen to death, Republicans claim 'legitimate' rape cannot result in pregnancy meaning if you DO get pregnant, it wasn't rape and Ohio goes into full voter suppression mode. These people have no conscience. Come in and see for yourself!

"THE LAST REPUBLICAN"

ART SUNDAY--SURIALISTIC---MAGRITTE--



HI THOUGHT I WOULD STEAL ONE FROM NEMO

Ren̩ Fran̤ois Ghislain Magritte (21 November 1898 Р15 August 1967) was a Belgian surrealist artist. He became well known for a number of witty and thought-provoking images that fell under the umbrella of surrealism. His work challenges observers' preconditioned perceptions of reality.

ETRUSCAN CITY OF CORTONA




Museum of the Etruscan Academy
The Museum of the Etruscan Academy is housed at the noble floor of the historic Palazzo Casali, erected in the 13th century, later turned to official residence of the family that ruled the signoria of Cortona (1325-1409) and, then in 1411, adapted to be the seat of Florentine captains and commissaries. The museum was created by the initiative of three culturated Cortonese brothers, Marcello, Ridolfino and Filippo Venuti, founders of the Etruscan Academy, who gathered in this seat a rich archaeological collection and an important library, both gifts of their uncle Onofrio Baldelli, for the cultural promotion of the Etruscan Academy.
In the 18th century the original unit was enriched with other archaeological pieces donated by the members of the Academy and owing to the donations of whole collections, as the Egyptian art collection by Mgr. Guido Corbelli (late 19th century), the painting and furniture collection coming from the Tommasi Baldelli House (1933) and the one gathering the important group of paintings by Gino Severini (1883-1966) - donated to his native city by the artist himself - a main representative of the Futurist movement. The Museum exibits a very rich collection of archaeological material and artistic items dating back from the 14th to the 19th century in a hetereogenic manner that is revealed in the arrangement of the items, as there are not spatial divisions between the diverse genres of the exibited material. The variety of the pieces (archaeological finds and important Etruscan, Greek, Roman and Egyptian works of art, besides the paintings, sculptures, mosaic works, fittings, minor arts and coins, collections of medals and engraved gems) is a peculiar and distinguishing character of this museum compared to the other ones in the province of Arezzo: it reflects the history of the collections, intimately bound to the life of the Academy and to the lively world of the erudite and cultural interests of the 18th-century Tuscany.


Among the most important archaeological objects is the Etruscan Chandelier found in 1840 in the neighbourhood of Cortona, a specimen of the finest bronze production of mid-Northern Etruria in the second half of the 4th century, decorated according to a very complex iconography with silenes, harpies and animals figures and propably intended for a sacred building of great importance. Particularly rich is the section including the Etruscan, Italic and Roman bronzes found in the Cortonese area and the one including Etruscan, Greek and Italic ceramic objects, among which the Attic anphora of a tyrrhenian type with the Struggle of Ercules against the lion Nemeo (mid.6th century B.C.) and the grey bucchero anphora, with decorations made with cylindric mould, coming from the Chiusi area (6th century B.C.). Noteworthy is also the series of cinerary urns and the collection of instrumenta - i.e. domestic use objects, of Etruscan and Roman ages, gathered by the Venutis. Among the paintings, mostly by the Tuscan school from the 13th to the 19th century of considerable interest are the works by Bicci di Lorenzo, by the school of Luca Signorelli, by Andrea Commodi, by Cristofano Allori, by Pietro da Cortona, besides a sketch by Giovan Battista Piazzetta preparative for the painting of the church of S.Filippo accomplished for the Cortonese family of the Tommasis (1739-44). The collections of the museum were recently enriched by an extraordinary funerary kit found in the grave of Melone II del Sodo, containing precious golden jewels, among which a fibula and valuable ceramics and bronze instruments set up in a topographic section at the second floor.
