Dear Donald: You End DACA While Proclaiming Today A National Day Of Prayer?

Dear Donald: You End DACA While Proclaiming Today A National Day Of Prayer?

Donald, who are you praying for today? Are you praying for your soul as you tell somewhere in the neighborhood of 800,000 DACA recipients that they have to go back home when they’re already home? They come out of the shadows after it was finally safe to do so and they have to now deal with […]

Humanitarianism Versus Passing The Collection Plate

Humanitarianism Versus Passing The Collection Plate

The rune, Dagaz, from the Elder Futhark indicates a new day arising from awakening and enlightenment. I thought I’d use its shape for today’s tarot reading. After the hurricane and the president that we currently have, we could all use a new day. But let’s see what the cards say. Sometimes I begin in one […]

Where We Find Our Peace ~ Tarot for 9 May 2017

Where We Find Our Peace ~ Tarot for 9 May 2017

Wow. Lots happening today culminating with the new guy firing the Director of the FBI, James Comey. Although firing someone who is investigating him seems to be a trend with this impulse-challenged overgrown child pretending to be our president, the timing seems odd as well as its roll out. It doesn’t appear the new guy […]

Life As A Preexisting Condition

When Life Becomes A Preexisting Condition

In the new guy’s version of life in this country, preexisting conditions should be allowed only for those who can pay for them. And one foolish congressman even went so far as to suggest that the sickest among us should be paying more than people who have remained healthy as if chronic illness or cancer, for example, […]

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. […]

What Does It Take To Hate?

What Does It Take To Hate?

What does it take for someone to hate another? I mean, really hate another. I’ve said on more than one occasion that I hated one thing or another but it was meant as hyperbole, not that I actually hated anything or anyone. Because to hate someone or a group of someones I believe it takes the […]

So In Today's News ~ Happy F*cking Valentine's Day Edition

So In Today’s News ~ Happy F*cking Valentine’s Day Edition

So in today’s news, I see that we now have classified briefings at golf course banquet rooms with the flashlights from cellphones ¹ lighting the briefing materials. Never mind the potential hacking problem this brings up. And rumor has it that the so-called new guy is spending a third straight weekend at said golf course at […]

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 […]

Republicans Continue to Fail Our Veterans

Republicans Continue to Fail Our Veterans

Republicans continue to fail our veterans. Now the new guy is giving the Republicans one of their bigger prizes: he’s signed off on a federal hiring freeze. What the assholes have done by this less than noble effort is to prevent the Veteran’s Administration from hiring any more staff to take care of the thousands […]
