Kansan Megan Foglesong Is Missing

Has anyone seen an Oneida, Kansas woman by the name of Megan Foglesong? Her last Facebook activity was November 30 of last year, and she was said to have been seen toward the end of December in a store, but no one is really sure. What the Rice County, Kansas Sheriff's Office is sure of is that she is missing, now. Their number is 620-257-2363, and if anyone knows where she is or why she's missing, they would like to hear about it. Her picture is below.

Republican Uses For The War On Drugs

"You understand what I'm saying? We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin. And then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities," Ehrlichman said. "We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did." John Erlichman, former aide to Richard Nixon

One has to wonder if the same tactics can work on government agencies.......

Abbie Hoffman Moment

This is Abbie Hoffman's answer in court, during the Chicago Seven trial, concerning why he introduced a pig as a presidential candidate during a protest. He might not even be able to distinguish between Donald Trump and the chosen mascot!

Summer And Rusty Page Do Not Get To Take Hostages

Summer and Rusty Page, of California, served as foster parents several years ago to a little girl named Alexandria, whose dad is a member of the Choctaw Nation. He has some relatives in Utah, who are not members of any tribe, but love Alexandria. For years, these relatives have been in court, suing for custody, only to be challenged by Summer and Rusty Page. The Choctaw Nation finally stepped in, and insisted that Indian Child Welfare Act be followed, which meant that Summer and Rusty could not steal a child from a Native American parent.

Instead of wishing Alexandria well and graciously bidding adieu, Summer and Rusty have made quite a scene, with the obvious intent to upset Alexandria as much as possible. Alexandria's attorney requested privacy for Alexandria, but they responded by putting up a Facebook page about this whole matter. They are also conducting "prayer" vigils, quite loudly, in order to attract attention. They really do not seem to understand that as foster parents, their contributions are temporary. Reunification of a family is always best, and for at least three years, they have stood in "God's" way, blocking Alexandria's path to home and family. Many people are also wailing about the Indian Child Welfare Act, demanding repeal! This time, it really isn't as much about bloodline as it is about family support. Alexandria's dad is a member of a family unit who supports him. In the eyes of the law, family is the best place for a child. End of story. After all those noisy public prayers, can't Summer and Rusty Page see that God answered all those crazy-assed petitions to the heavens, giving them the answer he obviously saw fit? Or would they rather pander for contributions in an ongoing to attempt to fanagle another answer from the "Almighty"?

In other news, a foster parent in New York was recently arrested for sex crimes against seven of his foster children.

Spring Equinox

Alban Eiler, otherwise known as the Vernal Equinox, is here. This is the traditional Easter, or Ostara, which takes its name from the Germanic Goddess, Eostre. She represents the Maiden, and Spring. Easter eggs are symbols of fertility, and hiding them for children to hunt for them was a traditional Pagan pastime for this Sabbat. In agrarian communities, it was a time to plant.

Whatever you intend to harvest later in the year, now is the time to plant and invest energy and effort. Blessed Be!

The Dirt On The Donald

It's actually about time. And Mr. Trump should have "expected" it. Donald Trump whines about illegal aliens, yet has married two females (your writer hesitates to call them ladies) who were not in America legally. In fact, the first female had defected from her native Czechoslovakia from behind the Iron Curtain. So much for respect of boundaries and citizenship; it is quite clear that Trump either does not mean what he says about it, or thinks that a career as a mail-order bride is a valid path to American citizenship.

Donald Trump also promotes his business savvy. Bankruptcies, at least four, in Trump's case, are permissible in the cases of individuals, but does America wish to force bankruptcy on a generation of children? Is it a way to run a nation? Because such procedures end up in court, the details are naturally open for all to read. If Trump actually secures the Republican nomination, many journalists and publications will proclaim these details, over and over again. It is only a matter of time. "The Donald" should really hope that there was nothing shady or unlawful in any of his past dealings. Remember Geraldine Ferraro and the error in her taxes? What are the chances, given his entire career, that there is unfavorable information concerning Trump's financial history?

How about "The Donald's" manners? Can America trust him to represent her, proudly? His illicit romantic affairs make Bill Clinton's tryst with Monica Lewinsky look puny. Trump even tried to convince a family law court to change the terms of divorce to include stopping his first wife from speaking about him in public, (see above link) but instead was schooled about the First Amendment to America's Constitution. How would he deal with the constant satire to which any public official is subjected? The world is not going to stop turning just for Donald Trump, so it seems that he really should have expected the reaction of Anonymous, along with many a journalist, IRS agent, former spouse, and many others. It's a no-brainer.

Keith Emerson, of Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, was found deceased today in his home in Santa Monica. He was one of the most creative composers of the latter half of the last century. We lost one of the greats, today.
