So, January…..

Well, Our President was sworn in on Friday – Streamed live on Twitter.  I feel it will be renamed TrumpTweet.  It will be interesting to see how the next 4 years proceed.   The weekend was full of protests of Woman’s Rights, Trump Haters, All people haters, people who hate Racist and claim not to be racist themselves…..

America seems full of people who “know” they are right and everyone else is wrong and are willing to hurt people to prove their points.  Personally, I have never agreed with anyone while they were punching me in the face.

Treat people fairly.  Allow people control of their lives and bodies.  Teach your children to accept people for who they are.  You are not physically harmed by accepting a woman’s right to the decisions that are done to her body.  We are not second class citizens.  We should not be chipped down to our ability to reproduce.  We are not livestock, to breed as others see fit.  We should also not treat ourselves like livestock – breeding to hold on to our men or having so many children we cannot economically take care of them.  The fruit of your loins are not mine to take care of.

If you didn’t Vote Trump or don’t agree with what he says. Peacefully protest, write your letters to your state reps who ultimately control what gets passed in our government.  Destroying other people’s lives doesn’t make you a good guy.  smashing windows of a McDonald’s doesn’t really hurt anyone – Insurance Companies pay out  and rates go up.  The food cost will go up there as well once Minimum wage is raised for the Entry Worker flipping burgers to support their 7 children because they made a decision to use their uterus instead of their decent sense to want more than a job at McDonald’s.

How about producing locally instead of raising wages – how about the cost of items going down instead of the Burger Microwave Operator making the same wage as the Postal Worker.  If we didn’t have to “bring in” so many products from over seas they wouldn’t cost so much.  If our produce was grown right around the corner we wouldn’t need to ship it from California.

The saying works….If you don’t want to smell smoke – don’t smoke.  If you don’t believe in abortion, don’t have one.  If you don’t agree with Gay don’t be Gay.  IF you don’t want to work for Pennies – get trained in a skill that will pay you more.  A college education is great but a skill is worth more.

Just my thoughts – I am not famous and I don’t get paid to report “news” so take it all with a grain of salt.

Happy Monday!

Christmas is for Losers: How the Nativity Story Rips on Power and Privilege

Peace Hacks

Drunk Santa

The nativity story is probably one of the most misunderstood episodes of the Bible. It’s an ancient Jewish story – not a modern Christian one, jam-packed with scads of cultural idiosyncrasies that are a bit difficult to understand for us modern Western folk. Nonetheless, read from a 1st century Jewish perspective, it’s a far better story than the one we usually tell. It goes something like this.

There’s these three groups of losers…

The first group is hanging out in the hinterlands of the Judean region when some really scary shit goes down. We call them shepherds and typically think of them as humble, simple folk – people at one with nature, animal lovers, passive, kind, etc. In their day however shepherds were considered by many to be the lowest of the low, though not as low as tax collectors (that’s a different but very interesting story). Shepherds would frequently…
