I haven't posted over at Left Coast Rebel in a while, something I hope to remedy in December once my vacation time starts. But it's worth reading every day, I encourage you to check it out.

It's odd that Bill Cosby has been vilified so quickly for allegations of rape and sexual assault decades ago, given his positive public image over the past several decades. It's not clear at this point what really did or did not happen with respect to these allegations, and if they are true, that's terrible. But whatever happened to the notion of "innocent until proven guilty"?
For there is hope for a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that its shoots will not cease. Though its root grow old in the earth, and its stump die in the soil, yet at the scent of water it will bud and put out branches like a young plant.

Still catching up from my internet access issues, I thought I'd share some Hillary Clinton news that might be relevant with respect to her bid for the presidency in 2016. She's decided executive amnesty action as pushed by president Obama currently, is a great idea.
It seems like a good Democratic primary driven decision for Clinton but ultimately it figures to be a headlong rush into a swamp that she doesn't need to make,
NEW YORK (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton voiced support Friday for President Barack Obama's use of executive actions to protect about 5 million immigrants from deportation, setting up a sharp contrast with Republicans on an issue that could play a leading role in the next presidential campaign."I think the president took an historic step and I support it," Clinton said in an appearance at the New York Historical Society, embracing her fellow Democrat's moves to address immigration.
So controversial executive decisions on a divisive issue, in advance of potential bi-partisan efforts on the issue, and poisoning the well to pander to a voting bloc, is a good idea? Her decision making abilities will be questioned over this as they should be. It's about as well thought out as her 2007 primary debate indecision on licenses for illegal immigrants.
No access to the online universe the last few days has put me multiple posts behind, but catching up will be tough given all of the things going on in the political sphere. For now, here's a Friday Musical Interlude from Sam Smith, I'm Not The Only One.
