Dealing With A Gifted Child (Article) - 6/15/2007 8:59:41 PM
I find teachers are to busy with normal children that children like mine get left out because they know everything required of them and they get bored and act out in class. Therefore distracting the others in thier class, My son had one teacher who gave him extra assignments to keep him busy and that was the best year of his schooling. And now i have a two year old coming up that already knows his addition and subtraction so here we go again.
Iran's President: A Terrorist Unmasked (Article) - 7/27/2006 7:01:33 AM
Iran never attacked the US before
By attacking Iraq we scared the Iranians out of their reform
That's why they chose this president
To give us/US the message that they will not be the next Iraq
Hope we have more common sense that to attack a new country
Iran's President: A Terrorist Unmasked (Article) - 3/9/2006 4:43:26 PM
Candy you are right, and Steve Emerson is right, and George Bush is right !
We will stop Iran...don't worry about it...it's a slam dunk case !
Iran's President: A Terrorist Unmasked (Article) - 3/9/2006 3:13:02 PM
You did some great research on this, Candy. Like you and others, I was so disappointed in the outcome of this election in Iran. Sure wish I knew the answer to love and peace between nations and cultures...I detest wars, but cannot sit back and overlook what the terrorists are doing to our world!
Merry Christmas: Politically Incorrect? (Article) - 12/2/2005 7:37:36 AM
I liked your article and agree with it 100%. God bless you and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Merry Christmas: Politically Incorrect? (Article) - 11/28/2005 3:25:30 PM
The most magical aspect of Xmas wouldn't require public displays, it would be celebrated privately, because spirituality is private. The public displays are for a completely different purpose. You can celebrate any way you want. I don't believe anyone has suggested you can't. Just like prayer, you can give any time you want, you just don't need to make a public display of your 'generosity'.. or trample anyone to death in the mall to do it. If you like xmas trees and nativity scenes, wonderful - just don't try to impose them on me when I'm out shopping, and I promise I'll never approach you with my beliefs in public either. It's really very simple for us to get along.
Iraq: A Global Debate: Part One (Article) - 11/20/2005 7:54:29 AM
Candy, still going on about this rubbish love? You need to find closure and move on. There was no justification for war, end of story. You ask George Galloway.
You used to write some of the most intelligent articles at AD but this nonsense is so far removed from reality it appears to be originated by someone else. Perhaps that explains why certain US Government organisations start scanning my computer every time I look at your page.
Scooter Libby And Valerie Plame (Article) - 11/5/2005 8:22:33 PM
Everyone in his administration should have known long ago they were potential fall guys. I have no sympathy for any of them. If they had any morals or ethics (funny - Bush is sending them all to ethics school now, which shows if he didn't know before, he sure knows now he surrounded himself with filth like himself) they would all have spoken up long ago instead of waiting to fall for others.
Scooter Libby And Valerie Plame (Article) - 11/5/2005 2:35:20 PM
He's still a player. Ironic isn't it, that for all Bush's epiphany after being a drunk and a druggie, he condones such behavior. The calluses on his knees must be falling off from all that praying to "do the right thing." Doesn't apply to him, of course. This is the man who said God told him he wanted him to be president. God is having a heart attack.
Bush's administration isn't more corrupt that any earlier ones. But is is JUST as corrupt. You don't get to be president without a lot of dead bodies littering the countryside. Libby is just another body to him, to insulate, until the next crime is ferreted out by a sharp newsperson.
When Charity Is Misplaced: The Outsiders Revisited (Article) - 10/30/2005 5:51:05 PM
I happen to agree with you, natural disasters are truly horrible for all that are affected by them. However, everywhere you look there are homeless and hungry people, some are our very own veterans, families that have been displaced through no fault of their own, children living in makeshift camps. We have the resources and the ability to alleviate this problem, yet it is not a priority. Very well written truths, Candy.

Analysis: Prime Time Live's Loose Nukes (Article) - 10/17/2005 7:15:30 AM
Oh dear Candy, you have lost your way love. This TV show you refer to sounds like it was inspired by another epidemic of paranoia. Had there not been reactors on University campuses we would not have many highly effective cancer treatments and numerous indispensibe scientific instuments. The lack of securitry surrounding academic reactors is linked with the difficulty of stealing fissile material and the difficulty of putting it to any practical use. I have seen items about "dirty bombs" on TV here. A conventional bomb would do much more damage. In fact, you could make a much more effictive dirty bomb from the waste produced by a modern coal fired power station (try walking over a power station ash heap with a geiger counter - I have, its fun.)With a nuclear bomb it is the shock wave that does the damage, not the radiation. To date less than a hundred people have died as a result of the disaster at Chenobyl.
Let the students have their fun, nothing they do can ever be as potentially dangerous as the possible actions of a man prepared to go to war on the strength of advice from God.
BTW I'm still waiting to hear from you.
Do Americans Really Understand? (Article) - 10/9/2005 8:11:10 PM
To a certain extent it is true that these incidents are because of indoctrination and brainwashing of impressionable minds. It is however equally true that certain US actions boomerang in the long run as Ian and Sandy have pointed out. The United states has to use both method and motive to solve such problems. No problem can be solved unless one gets to the root of it.
9-11 Deception Part Two (Article) - 10/9/2005 8:04:20 PM
It is heartening to see American Citizens write like this. One comes across articles in the media on how long term interests are overlooked for short term parochial gains with disastrous results. Terrorists are products of short term vested interests according to many. There is one consciousness course for individuals which states
"What choices did they make that helped bring them to this point? At what point did they turn toward this experience, instead of having turned toward a different experience?Every individual was eventually confronted, in this way, with the obvious conclusion that they helped to create the reality they live in" This is true for countries too. One can only hope that innocent people do not die in events like 9/11 which was a ghastly precedent of what misguided determination can do.
Before the Iraq war began, I bumped into a forum of "poets against the war" where 13000 poets expressed their reservation. Unless American citizens wake up and use tools like the internet to make collective presentations, we are no better than some of our ancestors. Vested interests have always been a formidable problem throughout the history of mankind but unlike currently, internet was not avialable to make things transaparent.
The War On Terror: Vigilance (Article) - 10/9/2005 8:01:48 AM
It is an irony that such warning articles have to be written in the 21 st century when tools like the internet are there to connect people together. One can only hope that nightmares like 9/11 and the London bombings never happen again. Terrorism and killing of innocent people can never be justified, whatever the cause maybe.
A Parents Role: Building Character (Article) - 10/4/2005 8:11:08 AM
Your article is interesting: I think that parents should be a support,an example for their children but character is built from empiricism..Parents should not interfere with the essence of character as a child is not clay but a living human being with memories ..some scientists claim that memories start in the womb..thus ,the fragility of a child.Anne pawlak.
The 9-11 Report -Deception (Article) - 10/4/2005 1:01:53 AM
Interesting article. The sad part is that so many innocent lives are lost because of vested interests which are difficult to control. Hopefully more lives will not be lost in the future.
Hurricane Katrina/Rita (Article) - 9/26/2005 6:51:19 AM
Candida: I'm sorry to have to say it, but I agree with you. I'm glad you have the spunk to point it out. While watching Good Morning America this morning 9-26-05, I noticed they were not covering Port Arthur, Texas after Hurricane Rita devastated it. Yet, GMA was still going full scale into Robin's hometown for the betterment of their own self image. I wondered about why the national news was not covering grief stricken Beaumont, Texas nor Jasper where communities were wiped out. - just too small and unimportant to the entity of corporate America I suppose they're thinking.
And yet, we are each and every one just alike, no different from one another. We, each and every one, take nothing with us when we leave this earth. How can we be so senseless to regard only those who have and add the most to money hungry America. Even the poorest man next door may have a richness in spirit far surpassing that millionaire on the other side of town.
Thank you for your article.
Hurricane Katrina/Rita (Article) - 9/21/2005 1:18:21 PM
Pruden dramatically overstated the number of New Orleans school buses. As of 2003, the most recent year for which data appears to be available, the Orleans Parish school district, which operates New Orleans' public schools, owned only 324 school buses. In addition, a Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development profile of the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (RTA), last updated May 5, notes that RTA owned 364 public buses, bringing the total of the city's public transit and school buses to fewer than 700..for the rest of the story - http://mediamatters.org/items/200509120005
In fact, The New York Times reported on September 4 that Louisiana emergency planners believed it would take as many as 2,000 buses "to evacuate an estimated 100,000 elderly and disabled people" in the event of a catastrophic hurricane like Katrina. But, The New York Times wrote, this was "far more than New Orleans possessed."
Apparently, those school buses constituted the majority of New Orleans' school bus fleet. According to a September 5, 2003, article in the New Orleans Times-Picayune, "The [Orleans Parish school] district owns 324 buses but 70 are broken down." A 2003 document posted on the Louisiana Department of Education's website confirms that Orleans Parish used 324 "board owned" school buses and no "contractor owned" school buses.
In fact, a Navy ship -- the USS Bataan -- was "preposition[ed]" off the Louisiana coast ready to aid Katrina victims but was deprived of needed guidance by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as the Chicago Tribune reported on September 4.
Moreover, the Bush administration did not send a hospital ship to New Orleans from Baltimore until four days after the levees were breached. http://mediamatters.org/items/200509120009
According to the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) December 2004 National Response Plan (NRP), when responding to a catastrophic incident, the federal government should immediately begin emergency operations, even in the absence of a clear assessment of the situation. Because a "detailed and credible common operating picture may not be achievable for 24 to 48 hours (or longer) after the incident," the NRP's "Catastrophic Annex" states that "response activities must begin without the benefit of a detailed or complete situation and critical needs assessment."
Do Americans Really Understand? (Article) - 8/11/2005 9:14:45 AM
You are totally on the wronmg track on this one Candy, and knowing you well enough to know you take a liberal stance on most issues I'm surprised you cannot see that the terrorist attracks here (which Americans seem to be more shocked by than us British)are wholly the result of the activitioes of the war criminals and murderers Blain and Bush in the middle east (to Blair's name add traitor because he takes his instreuctions direct from the White House and not from the British Parliament as he is obliged by British law to do) I don't see haw he can stand up with that familiar insincere grin on his face and accuse the bombers of cowardice and yet not see anything cowardly in dropping bombs on a third world country from planes thousands of feet up (which would be beyond the range of anti aircraft fire even if the enemy had any anti aircraft fire.
Even in America with its corrupt media and fascistic government you must know now that before the "liberation" there was no Al Quaeda involvement in Iraq. Since the liberation it has become a hotbed of terrorism.
Sandy is right, the Iraquis did want dialogue - Al Quaeda were not involved.
Sorry sweetie, I know you are only echoing the evil lies pumped out by the White House propaganda machine. Pay attention to Michael Morre and Al Franken - or better still, if you want to know anything about British Politics, mail me and I will send you a few links to intelligent (i.e. not Murdoch owned, White House sponsored) web sites.
when am I gonna hear from you socially?
Do Americans Really Understand? (Article) - 7/14/2005 6:43:24 AM
Al Qaida wanted dialogue????? When Sandy? Yesterday when they blew up children taking candy from soldiers? On September 11th? You name an instance when a terrorist cell wanted diplomacy.Begged for it? Show me.
Do Americans Really Understand? (Article) - 7/13/2005 7:45:12 PM
I'm confused by this statement: "The people perpetuating these atrocities are not interested in dialogue, diplomacy or rational conversation." - I don't understand how you can say this when that is exactly what they have begged for, and on the other hand we have Bush refusing to use anything that resembles diplomacy or dialogue. I also wonder what kind of God would not be willing to see his people end this.
Reality Bytes (Article) - 7/3/2005 8:43:37 AM
Oh dear, has he not got the messge yet Candy. Well don't tell him what I know for a while. I am waiting for an answer from somebody.
Hang on in there kid. I've explained the problem with getting this guy, but he will be got. And if he starts on you for this comment just ask him why he isn't taking my computers down if he is so good. I'm the knight in tarnished armour around here, the one he has to worry about.
And have a great holiday.

The Presidental Election: Cutting Through The Hype (Article) - 11/5/2004 10:45:56 PM
This is an insightful and well-written article. Money seems to be the driving force behind all politics (in our case, both Democratic AND Republican). The Dems "warchest" far exceeded that of the GOP, in sheer dollar volume. And it isn't hard to uncover how many of those dollars were contributed by -- good heavens! -- big business! But... a lot of American voters once again PROVED the old saw: "You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time."

There Comes A Time.... (Poetry) - 8/25/2007 12:32:35 AM
How true! All is said and expressed so precis, in this truthful poem.
Truth (Poetry) - 8/25/2007 12:24:09 AM
Truth is so evasive sometimes, for everyone believes in his own truth, and it takes time to reach a mutual truth; and even simple humans like us, can reach "the place where Truth dwells."

Grains Of Sand (Poetry) - 3/14/2006 9:41:01 AM
your lives slip through my trembling fingers/ like grains of sand
/leaving me alone in the prairie of desertion...
You need a bit of Blake sweetie "to see the world in a grain of sand/or heaven in a wildflower/to hold eternity in the palm of your hand/or infinity in an hour.
Your poem is beautifully wistful and soaked with yearning but check out William Blake's "Book Of Thel" and you will find we are never alone. The lines above BTW are from Auguries of Innocence by the same poet. Find his work at Bartleby.com
Grains Of Sand (Poetry) - 3/10/2006 6:51:33 AM
Very powerfully penned, Candida; being left behind can truly be a devastating experience.
Grains Of Sand (Poetry) - 3/9/2006 9:52:13 PM

Mages Of The Mind (Poetry) - 3/9/2006 3:19:13 PM
I wouldn't spend one cotton-pickin cent with one of these "pseudo- academic posturers". Whenever I'm in a quandry, I can talk to my God and somehow the resolve is given to me. I DO like the "exposure" this poem brings to us! Blessings -
Mages Of The Mind (Poetry) - 2/24/2006 1:07:38 PM
I could picture a psychiatrist sitting in his overlarge leather chair, nodding to a patient's soul wrenching utterances but not really hearing a word of the person's real pain. Great imagery and poem!
Mages Of The Mind (Poetry) - 2/17/2006 3:28:08 PM
These words seem to reflect the way of life of the occult preparing the way of death for ignorant souls. Many scholars in the realm of power that rules this world live concealed lives intermitting the one they allow their victims to observe on the stages where they prepare the doom of their audience that is cluless to the clue of their treacherous play. Words with a bite.

A powerful write. I think whatever happened that he didn't feel the pain, for he probably had died instantly, and didn't even know he died. The angels had gathered his soul half way through the fall.

once again, you've painted strong imagery with your powerful pen...that image haunts me still...but this one image has a much nicer ending. i only wish it were true...for all of them that were forced to choose the manner of their death *tears*
and then those who died trying--succeeding--in saving others, our brave heroes *tears*
(((HUGS))) and love, karla.
thank you for remembering
9-11: Solitary Soul (Poetry) - 9/11/2004 1:31:45 PM
I can't get that image out of my head either; what choice did he have? Burn to death, or jump? A decision I don't think I could make! Heartwrenching; may we never forget!

Stark and harrowing Candy, but the problem you describe is much more widespread than most people care to think.
And let's not forget adults can be victims of terrible abuse too, particularly psychological abuse. It really is time we woke up to the world we have made.
As usual your work is beautifully written sweetheart.

I know those water bugs, they used to fascinate me as a child, and still do
This is lovely Candy.

Who is this lucky man. Or if you have not found him yet, where can I get the
warrior soul that seems to be a requirement.
The Warrior's soul shop I guess.
Candy, this is so sexy.

Y'know sweetheart, at the moment my fave song is "with a little help from my friends" - I play it every day and think of you.

Man In The Shadows (Poetry) - 3/8/2004 9:40:33 PM
oh boy...not only is this a beautiful write...the composition and rhythm are grand...but it provokes thought...is this a dark tale as it seems...or is this a tale of a woman lost in darkness and saved?
Very well done, Candida
Man In The Shadows (Poetry) - 3/8/2004 5:02:01 PM

Awesome Candida! I like how you give this poem time to unfold. It's so appropriate. You set a mood and tone that's so in sync. with the theme, which is a chilling one. I could almost feel the coldness myself. Great job, and thanks for responding to my poetry. Your feedback means a lot.

you´ve said it, so should everyone of integrity be prepared to repeat like words & they need to be so over & over again until they are finally assimulated & digested into consciousness
Armageddon Revisited (Poetry) - 11/21/2003 2:05:44 PM

Armageddon Revisited (Poetry) - 11/20/2003 2:12:58 PM
Just fabulous poetry,an excellent heartfelt work !
I also felt just as you did and have done so many poems in past on this same subject,it tears one apart seeing all the death.
Reluctantly,around sept THIS year (approximately)I changed slightly in how I see this all,I still however struggle with it.(If you have time please read my poem 'Death of an idea' to see what I mean,)I understand your sincere feelings,I was once the same and am still very torn and tugged with this subject.

The poem of course is up to your usual sublime standard.
