Vegans... phhttt!

Vegans are pissing me off. A poster states: You don't have to love animals to be vegan, but you do have to be a vegan to say you love animals. No, you don't. What a cheap, self-righteous, pseudo-clever one-liner! Plenty of us love animals without giving over the eating of meat. In my opinion, it is... Sign in to see full entry.

It's just how I am...

Times have changed with technology and the pace with which we lead our lives: People wander off from online conversations without a farewell to let you know the conversation is over. People have meals with other people and never make eye contact because they are immersed in their electronic world.... Sign in to see full entry.

Refugees streaming over the border...

...is NOT how it happens. Seems a lot of people visualize it as people pouring out of Syria and other profoundly troubled regions, and pouring into other countries. Maybe it is that way in some European countries, but that isn't how it happens in the US. If you want to know what the gateway into... Sign in to see full entry.

What Charlie wrote

Charlie wrote this in response to a report/image on Facebook of a burning mosque: They wanted a war of fire and attrition. By answering their acts of mindless, inhuman horror with more of the same, we are giving them exactly what they want. We are surrendering to the madness that possesses them......

The Roosevelts

There are a few Great People in the world in every century, every generation. I recently watched Ken Burns' documentary mini-series, THE ROOSEVELTS, and was struck by the enormous differences the three most historic Roosevelts-- Teddy, Franklin D, and Eleanor-- made in this country, and in the...

The Greatest Nation in the World

First this, if you haven't seen it or want a reminder: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyzDRc34l2g Then this: America could be the greatest country in the world again by overturning a few centuries' of bad habits of thought, assumption, lack of national introspection. Here is one issue that... Sign in to see full entry.

The war is between tribal and civil mentalities.

Tribal thinking holds family and kin to be the center of Us, and everyone else is Them. Tribal mentality is profoundly defensive of the tribe/clan/kin/religion's beliefs, rituals, and values. and sees the Outsider as threatening all of that and therefore, the tribe's existence. Tribal thinking is... Sign in to see full entry.

Well, here's a thing!

I found this on Facebook today, from Bill Moyers, one of the few true and honest journalists in America today. After I watched it, I wrote: There are two Americas. One belongs to The People, as declared and intended by the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. It is... Sign in to see full entry.

It makes no sense

...that patients are told No food after midnight before your surgery, regardless of whether that surgery is at 8am or 3pm. Why not, don't eat any nearer than 8 hours to your surgery? Do doctors think we are too dim to work out the actual time?...that appointments are made for 4pm with the full... Sign in to see full entry.

No, the cows don't keep their calves...

It is one of the items on the animal rights agenda, to get people to stop buying from industrial dairies that only care how much milk an animal produces in its lifetime, without caring a whit about its actual life. Same with the goat milk industry. It's not the contented backyard goat or cow kinda... Sign in to see full entry.
