When Public Health Becomes A Political Issue

There are so many things that have turned sour these last four years it’s difficult to rank them anymore. But I do think that one of the worst is how #CO3 (current Oval Office occupant) has turned public health into a political issue! The result has been 150,000 and climbing totally unnecessary deaths! I know there are 200,000 deaths now but only 150,000 of them are because of his ignorance/incompetence/laziness/lies…. He is a despicable person who thinks only of himself and has no idea how the rest of us manage our lives. He has lived with a golden spoon in … Continue reading When Public Health Becomes A Political Issue

It’s Time To Just Outnumber Them…

I have been on my seemingly endless journey to understand the mind of the MAGA cult and I have come to the conclusion that they are by no means a homogeneous group. I have decided that it is useless to try to win them over with compassion, logic, or any other means. That is what this post is about.

MAGA And The Exvanglicals

Not all people who once proudly claimed to be Evangelicals are now MAGA cult members. It was refreshing to see that some have escaped and now label themselves Exvangelicals. I guess I could also wear that label as I was once an Evangelical myself. That is what this post is all about.

The Shunning… And Other New Years Resolutions

For the most part I greatly admire the Amish tradition, that is except for their practice of shunning. But, in their mind it is necessary to keep the faith pure. For me, I need to keep my sanity in the coming year and I think a shunning will help me do that. That is what this post is all about.

Understanding MAGA – Chapter 72

I have been diligently trying to understand the rationale that some folks have in praising Trump. One of those efforts was to read a book entitled In Defense Of Elitism by Joel Stein. The author was recently interviewed on the PBS Newshour of which I am a regular viewer. Some points I gleaned from the book is what this post is all about.

MAGA/Evangelicals

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.

Understanding MAGA…

I have made it my quest lately to try and understand the MAGA folks who voted for the current Oval Office occupant. They surely are not set on destroying our country but what drives them? I got a partial answer to that from a recent Fareed Zakaria program on CNN.
