Accusations of racism is the new McCarthyism in my not so humble prospective. I remember when Paula Deen products were pulled of the shelves at Wal-Mart because she said the N-Word. Actually, they were discounted - I bought several of them using my Wally-World discount. I gifted them to some of my women friends who loved her.

The problem is that if you are of predominately European ancestry, somewhere along the line, inadvertly or otherwise, you are likely to say or do something that will offend someone of non-European descent. This causes some of us to tip top around these folks for fear of upsetting them. This is counter productive is communication. A black friend finally told us, "Don't worry about saying the wrong thing, you are going to and we'll tell you when you do." Easy Peezy, if I am out of line with a white friend, she'll tell me so why not let a black friend do the same. That's how we learn.

I am sure that Paula Deen does not say the N-Word anymore but should it be a surprise that a Georgia woman has said that word at least once.

The latest outburst is regarding a 30 plus year accusation of a Virginia governor wearing blackface at a party. Nowadays, most folks will think twice about wearing blackface but 30 plus years ago; maybe not.

There is also the outrage about the abortion issue. There are differing opinions on the abortion issue but even pro-choice people hate abortion.

There is much ado about this Virginia Governor supporting the killing of babies after they are born.

In an interview last month, Gov. Ralph Northam said that he supported a late-term abortion bill that would loosen restrictions on the procedure, and allow women to consult with a doctor on an abortion up to, but not including, the time of birth.

The governor, a pediatric neurologist, also talked about some of the dangerous medical emergencies that pregnant women could face, such as carrying a nonviable fetus. He said that in such a case, the mother would deliver the infant and then, “the infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.” While Mr. Northam was talking about an end-of-life care discussion in the case of a child that would not live.

Republicans seized on his remarks as evidence that Mr. Northam supported killing babies after their birth. This was not the case at all.

The first amendment to give women their God given right to vote was introduced by a Republican Senator in 1878. Republicans fought an uphill battle for 42 years until the 19th amendment was passed in 1920. I'm glad to see their efforts paid off and I hope those wearing white last night know which party fought for them to do so.

Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived from either sugar CANE or sugar BEETS. Both are plants, which places them in the vegetable category. Thus, chocolate is a vegetable. To go one step further, chocolate candy bars also contain milk, which is dairy. So candy bars are a health food

Sought through Prayer and Meditation to improve our Conscious Contact with God

My understanding is that Prayer is talking to God and Meditation is listening to God. Talking to God is easy. Listening is the challenge.

There was much ado about these incorrect conversations with God and how we should not pray about our departed loved one. He's not Santa Claus who a send a never-ending wish list to fulfil nor is someone I give orders to.

I was driving home in a flood and keep asking God, "Please get me home safely?" If I lose my keys, I talk to his friend St. Anthony and usually find them. I will thank him for my humble abode but dang I sure would like a dishwasher and a robotic vacuum cleaner.

Absolutely, I pray about my loved ones on the other side. Ironically, when we are having conversations about Grumpy, I will start finding keys all over the place. It is like a confirmation that "Grumpy is still here and that he is more than okay," just in the next realm over.

I DON'T worry about if I am doing right or doing it wrong! Being right all the time is not a prerequisite My Higher Power can sort it out and figure out how to send me the message that I need to change or if I am doing just fine. I can never shut my brain off long enough to listen but I get my answers when there is evidence of divine intervention at work. It's the coincidences, being in the right place at the right time, the right people showing up and watching the cosmos clink into place.

POLITICALLY CORRECT LORD'S PRAYER
Our (mis)Concept of Patriarchal Authority, who, it can be said, inhabits the metaphysical sphere, privileged be your signifier.
May your social structure achieve dominance.
May the enactment of your desire be manifested throughout the physical-metaphysical dichotomy.
Empower us this day with the means of material production,
And refuse to enforce sanctions against our behavior which some see as subversions of a moral perspective, just as we refuse to marginalize the moral perspectives of others who have exerted their individuality.
Don't lead us into situation that some would (mis)understand as detrimental to the full expression of our humanness, but liberate us from the concept of "evil."
For yours is the hegemony, and the dominance, and perceived mystification within the entire continuum of the Western concept of linear time.

Catholic School Boys and Fake News!!!

I personally hope that Trump invites these kids to the White House for hamburgers and pizza. The stupidity of the left are constantly reminding me of why I switched sides.

Yesterday morning, I checked my FB. Lo and Behold, one of the local cat ladies posted a video of these terrible racist school boys with MAGA hats mocking a elderly Native American man with a drum. Her conclusion was that the boys should be expelled, the school closed and Trump fired.

I checked out other videos and found a completely different story.

These were teenagers from a Catholic Boys High School in Kentucky who attended the March for Life event in Washington D.C. Some of them were wearing MAGA hats in support of the President. Pro-life tends to be a Conservative Value which goes right along with individual who tend to support Trump so they belonged there.

I am not sure what the Black Israelite Bible Stompers were doing there except taunted any one who didn't look like them. They were taunting the kids who finally started school chants in response to the taunts and name calling.

A Native American man walked into the crowd with his drum and walked up to a young teenager and started chanting and drumming within inches of his face. The teenager just stood there and eventually left. Some of the kids started joining in the chants and others were still doing school chants. Eventually they boarded the bus and went home.

Somehow the media got the message that the kids surround the NA and the young teenager stood in his space while smirking at him. So now all the cat ladies and a few of thier beta males have their panties all twisted up.

They would rather cling to a lie than accept a truth if it threatens thier ideology.

I have been to protests and one of the first things we were taught is to ignore the agitators. They should have ignored the Black Israelites and let them rant in the wind. Agitators are at protests to deliberately cause trouble and the kids fell right into thier trap but they won't next time.

Much Ado About The Wall

On October 26, 2006, U.S. President George W. Bush signed the Secure Fence Act of 2006 (Pub.L. 109–367) into law stating, "This bill will help protect the American people. This bill will make our borders more secure. It is an important step toward immigration reform."[1]
The bill was introduced on September 13, 2006, by Congressman Peter T. King, Republican of New York. In the House of Representatives, the Fence Act passed 283–138 on September 14, 2006.[2] On September 29, 2006, the Fence Act passed in the Senate 80–19. Senators OBAMA, Schumer, and Clinton all voted to pass the bill.

So What is the big deal about Trump's proposal to build a wall.

First, what is the President's actual proposal? I It's NOT a 2,000 mile wall. In reality, it is a holistic, reasonable plan drafted by security experts:
-234 miles of physical barrier
-$800M for humanitarian and medical assistance
-More Law Enforcement officers
-Counter-drug technology at points of entry
-More Immigration Judges
-Better and more spacious detention facilities

I remember as a child crossing the bridge into Tijuana, Mexico. There were squatters living at the bottom of the bridge in dilapidated shacks with raw sewage flowing all around them. Later, I saw on the news where Mexico kicked out the squatters (hopefully rehoming them) and cleaned up the place. No human being should ever have to live like that. I would not want that kind of eyesore in my community.

This is one of the reasons that Mexicans are protesting the arrival of Central American Migrants and have issues with their town being used as a waiting room for migrants trying to get into the United States. Hence the need for better and more spacious detention centers. The democrats were screeching about the separation of the children and the adults. Housing them together in an inadequate detention center is not the best scenerio. More Immigration Judges means that they can be processed a lot quicker instead of waiting on the other side of the border or sitting in a detention center for a year or more. Humanitarian and Medical assistance is self-explanatory.

It is ironic that Trump is taking steps to FIX the problems that the Democrats are carping about and they are trying to block him.

Diversity Versus the Common Thread among White Republican Men

There is much talk about the newly elected Democrat Congress Representative versus the newly elected Republican Congress Representatives.

Historically, it is one of the most diverse congress far as race, religion and sexual orientation among the Democrats while the Republicans have white men. There is the token Latino football player and our marvelous Lady in Red (Thank you West Virginia).

While Diversity is a good thing, so is the common thread among our White Republican Males. The common thread is Love of Country. There are several Military Veterans and a Police officer among them. When I am looking for some one to vote for, I want someone who loves the United States.

There are a few Democrats and I am not sure of their dedication to the United States. A few of them have already started the name calling and the new McCarthyism called accusations of racism.

Enclosed is a photo of White Republican Men in Congress. Five Eyes, Two Legs, Five Arms, All American! I LOVE our white Republican Men.

New Years Eve was quiet. I stayed at home in my jammies. New Years Day - We had plans for a Book Club meeting at the Osteopathic College. I was at the College at ten in the morning. Alas, no one was there. Thank God for cell phones. My girlfriend informed me that the group decided to meet at the Main Street Book Store for the Shanghai Parade.

Cool! I drove to a closer parking lot, walked to the Wild Bean for a fancy cup of Java and strolled down the block to meet my Book Club buddies. I mentioned that my Republican was going to be in the parade. He would be zooming down the block on a motorcycle wearing a Shriner hat. How sexy is that. I offered to compromise his virtue in the Old Stone Church Graveyard. He suggested that we wait until Spring. I haven't compromised his virtue. I did kiss him in front of the whole parade and all his Shriner buddies.

I decided to talk about Saturn Return at our Book Club Meeting and did a reading for one of our members afterward. Natal, Solar, Venus and Saturn Returns and played cards as well. I have always been told that what we do on the first day of the year is a indication of what the rest of the year should be like. It was an interesting day, it should be an interesting year.

The Seventh of January is Old Christmas. It is time for the tree to get unplugged and go back into it's box.
