Settled by 100 Million Voters or 100 Millionaires in the Senate

The impeachment inquiry into the current Oval Office occupant (#CO3) is going in full force now. Some say that is a good thing but some also say that that is just what this guy wants. He wants it to be about him, even if it is threatening.

Lazy, Incurious, Insecure, Enemy of the People

I wonder how many of you will immediately get what the post is about from the title? I suspect quite a few will. These words are from an OpEd piece from Paul Krugman of the New York Times and that is what this post is about.

OK MAGA, You Win…

Ok, MAGA/Evangelicals, you win. I give up on the idea that you will eventually get over your hatred for so many things and so many people in our world. At one time I truly believed that eventually your self-consuming fear would subside and you would rejoin the rest of us in celebration of American diversity and true Christianity.

I don’t like labels but there is a “but” in that statement for me. We need to understand just why the major conflicts arise in our world and then be able to see who is causing them. We can no longer afford a general “Us vs Them” mentality. If that keeps up it will eventually destroy us. Without knowing who “Them” is or what percentage of the population they represent we may just go down in ashes. That is what this post is all about.

This I Believe…

John Pavlovitz continues to inspire me as a blogger, an American, and a Christian. I can’t imagine being as productive a blogger as he is! I often struggle to find the words to adequately express my feeling whereas he seems to do it effortlessly. This post is about his words above.

We seem to be facing crisis after crisis due primarily to some of us refusing to face facts that others are screaming are critical. There are two areas that stand out to me and that is what his post is all about.

I’m Canadian, We Don’t Do “Proud

I’m pretty sure my roots go back to Great Britain, so maybe that is the reason I have such a kindred relationship with things Canadian. They still have the basic sense of being British engrained in them. 🙂 The quote above is from Martha Atwood who is Canadian and the author of “The Handmaid’s Tale”.

When I heard the quote in the title from her it made me think just how fundamentally different Canadians are from their southern neighbors. That and a photo gallery of my 2011-month-long visit is what this post is about.

Just the facts, in 40 sentences.

I have been looking for this type of list about the current Oval Office occupant (#CO3) for a while now. Thanks, David Leonhardt of the New York Times for putting it out in his column on Sunday.

Even with this very lengthy list it seems impossible for any Republican in Congress to put country over party and bring this guy to task. They finally need the guts to admit that their party that once stood for principles was kidnapped by a very flawed person who has his head stuck so far up his own rear end that he sees ABSOLUTELY nothing but himself.
