This Show Must Not Go On

This Show Must Not Go On Word have consequences and silence has meaning. We are better than what we have allowed or conspired to happen in our nation. If you are angered at that idea, screaming, “I didn’t do anything!” then you’ve proven my point. The hate driven divisive behavior from the “top” of our national culture needs to stop, like this newspaper, and work … Continue reading This Show Must Not Go On

The Threat of Separation

You’re missing the point if you think that the fact that this little wasn’t separated from her mom invalidates the trauma she’s experiencing. The confrontation with authorities, the dehumanization of her parents, caused this level of panic. Now imagine the thousands where the child WAS separated from their mothers or fathers. Are you so callous and uncaring (or literal minded) that you can dismiss this … Continue reading The Threat of Separation

Have An Informed Opinion: Volunteer at Your Local School

So this showed up in my feed…. maybe these people should actually spend time visiting or volunteering at their local schools instead of watching right wing propaganda on their TVs and then throwing virtual rocks from their computers…. here was my response: “I cannot repost this. My school does the pledge and 30-seconds of silence every day. You might want to be more specific with … Continue reading Have An Informed Opinion: Volunteer at Your Local School

Pot Calling out The Kettle: tRumpf and Amazon

The guy who bragged that not paying taxes was “smart” attacks Amazon for not paying their fair share?! Didn’t he just sign a bill into law designed to lower the taxes of large businesses and billionaires? Oh, right, besides his poor memory skills, such things only apply to whatever he watches that morning on “Fox & Friends.” Also, Amazon’s use of the USPS is probably … Continue reading Pot Calling out The Kettle: tRumpf and Amazon

On Knowing What Other People Are Thinking

In an exchange that began with a conservative friend fretting over CNN’s obvious obsession with bringing down tRumph he commented, turns out accidentally, that in view of the scandals he’d blame Melania for leaving tRumph. That didn’t make sense so I commented: You’d blame Melania if she left Trump? That doesn’t seem to make sense. She should “stand by here man” while he has multiple … Continue reading On Knowing What Other People Are Thinking

Why Aren’t We Fixing This

Why Aren’t We Fixing This? If this problem wasn’t presenting as a political thing, what would we be doing to fix it and why aren’t we doing that now? I don’t give a damn how you feel about guns, or mental health, or the NRA, or Citizens United, or illegal aliens, or DJT, or the second amendment… the United States of American has a problem … Continue reading Why Aren’t We Fixing This

Daily Random Sh*t: The Cost of Being Self-Aware in this “Donald Moment”

Daily Random Sh*t: The Cost of Being Self-Aware in this Donald Moment A friend lamented: I wake up every day feeling like an unredeemable pile of sub-human garbage knowing that nothing I can do will ever change it… meanwhile.. we got a guy who can barely form coherent sentences claiming to be a genuis. Thinking he’s great when his words and actions point to him … Continue reading Daily Random Sh*t: The Cost of Being Self-Aware in this “Donald Moment”

Daily Random Sh*t: Photoshop Beginner: Removing the Background

Daily Random Shit: Photoshop Beginner: Removing the Background Last night I learned how to erase the background of my LEGO EV3 image using Photoshop CC 2018. At first I watched a video on YouTube (below), but the differences between the version used in the video (CS6) and my version, while getting me used to using layers, was too confusing to be followed. So, I went … Continue reading Daily Random Sh*t: Photoshop Beginner: Removing the Background

Daily Random Sh*t: As We Celebrate the Holidays Please Remember Universal Human Rights Day’s 70th Anniversary

In a normal year we would celebrate the desire that everyone in every nation and region experience the fullness of human rights. This isn’t a normal year. Some would have us bicker that others aren’t worthy of “special treatment.” What happened to treat others as you would be treated? Especially at this time of year, you’d think we would want the best for everyone, instead … Continue reading Daily Random Sh*t: As We Celebrate the Holidays Please Remember Universal Human Rights Day’s 70th Anniversary
