Standing up for what is right

Standing up for what is right

I have never voted before. I never even registered to vote. Many people say this means I have no right to complain  about what goes on in our society, since I don’t participate in the decision-making process. I wholeheartedly disagree. Not voting IS a vote. It is a vote for ... Read More

A list of Federally recognized holidays:

  1. New Year’s Day: we celebrate a random day in the middle of winter that doesn’t actually start anything except an arbitrary calendar by partying hard and having mega sales.
  2. Martin Luther King Jr Day: we honor a wise and good man by pretending racism is gone and having mega sales.
  3. George Washington’s Birthday / President’s Day: we honor our first president, and to be politically correct ALL presidents (even if they did nothing particularly good for our country) by having mega sales.
  4. Easter (technically a business holiday): we prove that there is a war on Christianity by having 2 out of our 11+ Nationally Recognized holidays being Christian (the ONLY religion actually honored nationally), and celebrate with lots of food, a series of pagan rituals and having mega sales.
  5. Memorial Day: we remember the many soldiers that have died for our country by having barbecues and mega sales.
  6. Independence Day: we celebrate the birth of our nation with barbecues, often illegal fireworks, and having mega sales.
  7. Labor Day: We honor the workers of our nation by making them work overtime for mega sales.
  8. Columbus Day: we honor a dude who accidentally bumped into a well populated and already often visited “New World”, claiming he discovered it, by having mega sales.
  9. Veteran’s Day: We honor the many soldier’s who have not yet died for our country so we can ignore them completely for the other 364 days of the year, by having mega sales.
  10. Thanksgiving Day: we remember the day that we actually thanked the indigenous population for helping a few of us survive before we completely ruined their lives, by having a big meal and having mega sales.
  11. Black Friday (business “holiday”): we have a day devoted to mega sales (we really needed one!!)
  12. Christmas Day: we again prove the war on Christianity by celebrating the non-birthday of a man who may or may not even have existed with lots of food, a series of pagan rituals and having mega sales.

And people wonder why I am a cynic.

That time o’ year again?

In recent weeks, I have made a determined effort to live a less … DIGITAL … lifestyle. Since I made the decision to do this, I have been involved in the development of three new web sites (one of them a store site), started a Go Fund Me campaign, and updated another one of my ... Read More

You gotta be kidding me!

You gotta be kidding me!

Just when I think people are getting a clue, they go and get all silly again. This newest concept that has the American people screaming in outrage has me totally flummoxed. We live in a society where the public honestly believes that if one is in any way a celebrity, we are entitled to know absolutely EVERYTHING about their ... Read More

Another call to arms

It has always been my impression that one of the core values of the US Constitution is the concept of “innocent until proven guilty“. That encompasses the basic idea of freedom of thought and expression. One cannot be condemned for something without having proof that they actually did something wrong. It is ... Read More

In the last few years, We the People have displayed the extremes of humanity’s potential. We have pulled together to heal when disaster hits, while in the next moment we condemn others for thinking differently than us. We shout “Love Thy Neighbor!” even as we throw rocks at them. We boldly fight for the right of choice, ... Read More

And on the seventh day SHE rested …

Adam was designated by God as the shepherd of life, Eve was designated the bearer of new life. When Adam has cared effectively for all that is born to life, ~ when he is adequately doing his job ~ then, possibly, he might have a right to look to the job Eve is carrying out. ... Read More

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the ...

Time to get controversial

I am about to step into no man’s land. The intent of this post is not to offend, but to question; to start thought; to point out the power and weakness that is words. I am going to look at a pretty well-known bit o’ words. One thing to note before I start. I am ... Read More
