We Really Are The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For

Maybe we lost our way long ago. Maybe the ground was already established for the vitriol many of us now experience. Someone on social media that I’ve been friends with for a while became snarky with me when I commented on a news article. The person apologized, but it’s so upsetting when it happens. I […]

In Support Of Safety And Dignity For All

In Support Of Safety And Dignity For All

Full disclosure in case you’re new to the blog: I’m not a supporter of our current president nor do I support his policies. Instead, I’m a supporter of families, women, truth, integrity, shared sacrifice, unity, and progressive thinking. But when he was tragically elected nearly a year ago, besides having a panic attack, I wondered […]

Party Solidarity?

Party Solidarity?

Full confession: I was a registered no party affiliation voter until the 2008 election and never thought I would ever be concerned with party solidarity of any kind. At that point, I wanted to vote in the Oregon primary and I registered as a Democrat so that I would automatically get a ballot in the mail. […]

The Illusion of Separation ~ Demographics Be Damned

The Illusion of Separation ~ Demographics Be Damned

Any separation between us is such an illusion. I remember as a child becoming terrified when racist comments were made. I couldn’t handle it. It felt as if the ground was shifting under my feet and something terrible was about to happen. So when I read several articles about Rep. Steve King spouting off about […]

The Perilous Silencing of Women

The Perilous Silencing of Women

The silencing of women has begun in earnest on the floor of the Senate. Be seen and not heard. That’s what I was told by my parents while growing up. I was precocious in their view and my truthful comments weren’t welcome. An empath, my awareness made them uncomfortable. Sorta like the republicans in the Senate […]

Respect Seniors: Increase Funding For Meals On Wheels

The New Guy Isn’t Smart At All

Although it’s apparently difficult for the new guy to understand this, the American people actually care about human rights. Not mentioning Jews in his Holocaust Remembrance comments because other people died too is shameful and insensitive at minimum. Holding up every stinking executive order he signs undoing our country is childish. And putting a white […]

Regrouping For The Coming Struggle

Regrouping For The Coming Struggle ~ Tarot for 28 Jan 2017

Today’s reading gives the feel of everyone off doing their own thing, as if regrouping for the coming struggle. The 6 of Wands depicts a young knight returning home from battle. The crowd receives him with cheers as he carries his flag of victory. The crystal tip of his spear reflects the sun’s rays as […]

Witch Notes: Alternative Facts Edition

Witch Notes: Alternative Facts Edition ~ Runecasting for 22 Jan 2017

Alternative Facts. I guess that’s the new meme for the day. However, the number 22 is a Master Number indicating cosmic law is at work today. Women everywhere marched in solidarity yesterday, 100,000 in Portland, Oregon alone, thousands more in Bend. Women don’t appreciate the outcome of an election that leaves them offended and worried, which […]

I Can't Look At Him

I Can’t Even Look At Him

I can’t even look at him, this man-child. I can’t listen to his voice, or any of his minions. I can’t watch the news and I barely read anything past an article’s headline. I’ve added subscriptions to Hulu and Gaia to my Netflix and Amazon video options because I can barely watch television anymore. Comedy […]

The Politics Of Baby-Proofing The World Against A Leader Lacking Basic Impulse Control

And So It Begins

The Electoral College did what many of us wished they hadn’t. They formally elected the lowest common denominator as our president. I’m not going to list all of the harm he’s caused others because we’ve all heard it before. Unfortunately, enough people listened to his craven bullshit and because of the idiotic way we elect […]
