I have darken the background of valleyviewpoints and I’ve done so for a few reasons.
SCOTUS has lost one of the finer jurists in my opinion with the passing of Antonin Scalia. What this will mean for the future of America is an unwritten page.
The general political climate deserves a degree of mourning in my opinion. Two primaries in and the Democrats have all ready turned the Super Delegate Stupid switch on. The GOP (my team) has a bevy of its own issues. The nation should be weeping.
People are dying. Whether uniformed personnel in the four corners of the world or desperate folks on the winter ravaged streets of America. The former is occurring as our past deaths tally firmly under the column of wasted deaths and the latter is just a disgrace for an industrialized nation that alleges a Abrahamic tradition.
