A Journal to impart knowledge and facts
July 22, 2015|
I'm going to start today to record on a daily basis whatever happens to strike my fancy. So, it is a very cool breezy day. I just posted 5 short book reviews to The Monthly Reading Challenge. I'm suppose to put away some winter wood today from the woodpile outside but I'm playing hookey from work to write so starting this blog will get done.
I'm having a daily fight with a flock of English Sparrows that are trying to take over my barn. They are making a terrible mess so they have to go. I have destroyed several nests so far they don't leave but they get out of the barn when I am around. I'm just starting the fight so I guess I don't know how far I have to go to discourage them.
I'm trying not to spread myself to thin on WDC because I find so many things that are interesting here and I am trying to work on a new story. I really enjoy sitting at my desk with a cup of tea and reading blogs on WDC.
December 10 = Human Rights Day--United Nations slogan--All Human, All Equal
"Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home -- so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. [...] Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world."

This is being written specifically for Blogville. It is a question for any who will give opinionated answers.
Do you think the United States of America needs to address better Human Rights.
issues, that will affect the way the nation is run in a better way?
At my home we watched a movie about treasure hunters in the UK. It was a humorous movie about two groups of treasure hunters trying to find their fortunes by hunting farm lands and fields with metal detectors. The two groups were in competition against each other and the resulting situations were entertaining to watch.
Today, I read an article about real treasure hunters in Pennsylvania, that call themselves Finders Keepers. They think they found a treasure of gold bars lost during the civil war, that belongs to the USA treasury (worth approximately 50 million dollars). However, the FBI got involved and may have removed the treasure. You can read an article about this in "The Guardian" or other sources as well. Using "The Freedom of Information Act" as a guide Finders Keepers is attempting to get proof that the treasure was removed from where they found it,by the FBI, without the FBI giving them any knowledge about the find?
The USA has always been quick in the news to notice and bring to bear light on the absence of Human Rights in other countries. Does the USA address other countries Human Rights issues without taking note of its' own problems?
Do we as a nation need a forum to reveal unnoticed Human Rights issues, that maybe affecting the mental anguish being revealed in the circumstances of politics?
What do you think?
