“The poor you have with you always.” —Jesus
And with that people who self label as Christians dismiss any obligation to help anyone but their religious leaders as they seek to curry God‘s favor and reap the bountiful blessings they believe are due them. It’s just easier.
I stumbled upon1 this quotation that needs to sink deeply into the hearts… Continue reading
Well, just to piss off Fox News, Sarah Palin, and all of the “War(mongers) on Christmas1,” I am informing the world that our Solstice Cards have all been mailed!
Design and print the Solstice card; write, print and fold the Solstice newsletter, and then stamp and seal the Solstice envelopes. Finally: double check to be sure they all have sufficient… Continue reading
He is wise, factual, and prescient. This video is well worth your time. Democracy is being subverted by the party of “No!” and their Teabagistanians’ lunatic jihad on Americans. If you or I broke the law of the land, we would be jailed.
The party of “No!” has got to go!… Continue reading
My grandfather and father both used the expression “horse sense*” as in, “It doesn’t make horse sense.” In other words, even the brain of a horse could figure this out. The following things don’t make horse sense to me.

Steve returned from New York with several boxes of things from Aunt Helen’s final estate settlement: among them, her journals dating back to 1930.
Posted here are photos of one of her vintage hats we just unpacked. Not only is the hat a cool vintage shape and fabric, it contains over 40 vintage buttons: buttons over buttons! Slogans, sayings, spirit,… Continue reading

Say whatever you want from multiple sources over and over again, get “on message,” and over time the message is believed by more and more people, especially in a busier and busier… Continue reading
Let’s talk fair and balanced for a minute, because fair and balanced can’t exist right now.
When you see a large bully beating the living hell out of a small kid who has reached the point of being incapable of defending himself, you don’t run up to the fight and ask each side to present their case in any effort… Continue reading
This graphic has been circulating the web…
While nothing more needs to be said, I will add this thought: If our government were more representative of our nation‘s actual population in race, gender, age, and income brackets, the policies of this nation would be vastly different than they currently are. The average American is excluded from office, by design of… Continue reading
Last week I posted Celebrating Women. (I then had to update it when the URL to the video was made private.) At the same time, I posted a link to the website, Win With Women 2012, on Facebook. That link contains the music video– as that organization commissioned the music. This is what I wrote in my brief Facebook post:… Continue reading
