The White House has scheduled the Emergency Declaration for the Mexican border, for 10:30 Eastern. Anarchists and Nomads are always against lines on a map, unless they're rails!
Happy Valentine's day everyone!
In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn. A lack of understanding can often get our defenses high - I've pledged to myself to endeavor to learn from someone if I don't understand - practicing hearing to listen, rather than to simply hear. Alongside, not judging if someone doesn't understand me. Judgement is natural, and we all do to some level, strive to set the mind to teach, without condescension.
Bare in mind St Valentine was a Roman priest who used to marry couples in private (based on the theory that unmarried soldiers fought better than married ones (because of unwillingness to sign up/worring about family left behind)) so originally Valentines was based on a SECRET love.

Capitalism bothers me!
