This is the mentality I’m seeing with Trumplicans… It didn’t happen to me, so it must not be true. It did happen to me, but I’m just fine.. people are blowing this out of proportion. So those who died must have had a character flaw, right? But that is all beside the point. The pointContinue reading “Denial”
If there is a movie that I watch over and over again and recommend over and over; it’s Cloud Atlas, which features Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Susan Sarandon. http://amzn.to/2dUNYDa http://amzn.to/2dPOs2h While a lot people will not be interested in this because it seems too sci-fi or who don’t believe in past lives, but weContinue reading “Book and Movie Review: Cloud Atlas”
When I read Anna Redshaw’s “On Unsolicited Advice” on her blog, M.E., Myself and I ( https://the-slow-lane.com/2021/04/16/on-unsolicited-advice/), it hit home for me, but different reasons. Like Anna, I have chronic illnesses, but unlike Anna, I don’t mind suggestions about how to deal with the pain and disabilities and know they are sharing their ideas becauseContinue reading “Unsolicited Advice”
Between mass shootings and black people being killed by police, you have to wonder why and what you can do about it. Guns and the easy access to get them are just partially to blame. But what is most to blame is attitudes. White supremacy, the selfishness of conservative Christians who are so far awayContinue reading “Too Many Deaths”
I’m so glad to see that Eyeman finally is being forced to pay for his grifting. He lived off the donations from supporters, money that was supposed to be used for political campaigns, like one of his first; demanding that car tabs be a flat rate and ignoring that the fees from these tabs goContinue reading “Sleazebag Loses”
I find it sad that so many people “hate” others who are different. Growing up, I thought everyone thought like I did, that all people were people, even with their differences. As I got older, I felt that maybe racial biases were more of a southern thing until I started seeing the racism all aroundContinue reading “Hatred and Discrimination”
One thing about conservative Republicans or “Trumplicans” is their double standards about rules rights. They demand “religious freedom” for themselves and the demand that no one else gets the same rights, insisting that America is a Christian nation. Spoiler alert: it’s not. They want to determine what others, who don’t follow their own ideas, beliefsContinue reading “Republican Short Attention Span and Selective Amnesia”
More people died in the FedEx shooting than got blood clots after the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. But when the vaccine showed a problem with a tiny percentage of people, it was immediately stopped. When guns showed a problem with a huge percentage of people, it’s completely ignored.
“You are not guilty of being white, but if you are white and do not act to redress the crimes the system commits against people of color, you are guilty of participating in their oppression. Blame is not the same as responsibility. Responsibility literally means the ability to respond. In other words, to do somethingContinue reading “Responsibility”
I would bet this a strong reality for a lot of people. But not me. I’ve been retired for 21 years and now I’m pretty much homebound in my recliner with my laptop. Funny how some things can feel like blessing.
