Just opened an email from asking me to demand that the CIA release documents on Russia’s meddling in USA elections. Here is my reaction: 
In all likelihood there is nothing for the CIA to release! 
Someone’s suspicions are not evidence: Everybody is suspicious because someone else is suspicious. This is nothing but manufactured hysteria. 
Sure there are Russian hackers, just as there are American hackers. It has no bearing on foreign relations, but we are, in all likelihood, being set up for another war, or more likely, another cold war, based upon manipulation and manufactured suspicion, very much like the war in Iraq was based upon boundless suspicions. 
This is no different, really. No different than the suspicions that led us into the Iraq war, but will we be any smarter this time around? Just like then, there is absolutely no direct evidence that has been presented, not really even any whiff of “smoke,” let alone “fire,” and I will be surprised if  the calls by well meaning US Senators to release documentation will produce anything of substance.

There is not even “smoke," let alone fire. Get over it!

If you are a Green, then you are no more a Democrat than a Republican is. Green is for things that the Red and Blue oppose: While Green Party is for peaceful coexistence, Republicans and Democrats have supported wars-for-profit for all of my life. (I am 75; they will not be changing any time soon.) Green is for live and let live, while Red and Blue are about greed and conniving, and this is no exaggeration when both of the above have always supported the overthrow of democratically elected socialist governments, replacing them with puppet governments, dictators and tyrants who practiced suppression-for-profit. Green is for racial and economic equality as well as for recognition of tribal rights. Our 2016 Pre
