You just don’t invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interests. This is an act of aggression that is completely trumped up in terms of its pretext. It’s really 19th century behavior in the 21st century.
Something I teach in my classes and to my mentees is that looking at something from a different perspective is a great thing to do. Everything has a bias - the question is whether that bias assists or hinders your goal.
Here we have a book that is all about culinary history. It has one bias - to track the history of food and its movements. It doesn’t care about political motivations or correctness … unless it directly affects the story they are trying to tell.
Looking at the history of humanity through the eyes of culinary archeology, recipe books and genetic mapping of plants and animals brings a whole new side to the histories you may have been taught bridging it with a new perspective and perhaps, insights as well.
John Kerry, U.S. Secretary of State, about Russia’s response to the fascist coup in Ukraine, on NBC’s Meet the Press, March 2, 2014
JOKE OF THE WEEK from the mouthpiece of the the U.S. administration that invaded Libya, threatens to bomb Syria, regularly massacres civilians with drones, proclaims its right to assassinate anyone anywhere anytime, is re-colonizing Africa, continues to occupy Afghanistan, etc.
Thanks to Tanya Gilbert
I wonder if Kerry’s speechwriters realize that they just wrote his epitaph…

I’m 31 and suffering from MDD.
Things can only get better from here.
If your lucky you will find a good (w)holistic GP who will coordinate the combination of psychological and medical regiments to determine the right type and quantity of drugs to help normalise you day to day.its not easy and the in swings and out swings of trying different types, doses and mixtures of neurological pharmaceuticals can be nasty.
For me, the biggest hurdle was once we did go through years of experimental solutions to find the right mix was the shock of realisation that this was not like a course of antibiotics that ends after a set run, I will be on 450mg of Effexor per day for the rest of my life.
Its something that I remember complaining about to my GP who put me in my place by reminding me that chronic depression is like asthma and you just need your medications and your coping strategies and life will be fine.
