The Fourth of July this year is especially emotional. My beloved grandmother died almost a year ago, and Independence Day 2016 was our last "slumber party" together. She passed on roughly 36 hours later. Grandma had to have one last day to be independent, and she spent it with her equally independent granddaughter. My gran or G-Ma as I called … Continue reading Independent Till the End
Pardon my hiatus from blogging but I needed time to do something I haven't done in a while. Think. Yep I needed some time to do some good old fashioned thinking. When I say thinking I mean TV, cell phone, laptop, and such turned completely off, not just the volume turned down. Then I re-engaged with … Continue reading Be Worry. Don’t Happy.
Even so, ye also outwardly appear as righteous unto men but within are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Matthew 24:28 ...for everyone that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. Luke 18:14 The cult of social justice has become a religion unto itself complete with "sinners" and "saints." The saints … Continue reading Social Justice Sinners
This morning I awoke at 2am with anxiety and my heart racing. For some reason bioethics was on my mind. The moment was brief as I knew I couldn't solve issues like DNA misuse and transhumanism in the middle of the night, so I managed to sleep again. As I was getting my wife's lunch … Continue reading He’ll Take What’s Wrong and Make it Right
Instead of always getting into politics, I've decided to open up a little and share some moments from my life living in Portland, Oregon. Please enjoy. It was cloudy as Monday day swirled into night. We arrived to Hollywood Theater in the Northeast part of town an hour early to get a good parking spot, and our favorite … Continue reading Moments in PDX. Episode 1.
In this age of poor grammar, is doesn't surprise me that those supposedly "in the know" or those who believe to have had their "consciousness raised," would misuse the origin of a word to convey "awareness." This folly is just a beautiful entry way into the fallacy that is being "woke" or believing any individual, regardless of background, … Continue reading From Pence to Pepsi. The Fallacy of Being Woke
I'd like to title this post "From Girls Shame to Woman's Brave Heart: Growing Up, Out, and Into a Lady." My intention in writing this is to open up to readers, especially young biological women, who struggle to love themselves as themselves. The particular audience I wish to address isn't an implication of prejudice against … Continue reading From Girls Shame to Woman’s Brave Heart
This is a topic I've been thinking about a lot this week. Moral vanity is probably one of the oldest of human mind/soul struggles and it's never likely going away. Most certainly I battle with it on a daily basis in some way. Having a blog that discusses current events is like a gateway drug … Continue reading Moral Vanity
Yesterday I had no time to take a day off for some cause that doesn't actually represent me. There was my wife, who was home sick with the flu who needed my from scratch nutrient dense chicken soup. She needed me to go up and down the stairs more than a couple times for things … Continue reading Why I Didn’t and Won’t Ever Participate in “Women’s Day” Events
For the last few months I have been repeatedly astonished by the levels of hate I've seen thrown at our now President and his supporters. Even those who didn't vote for Donald Trump but didn't vote for Clinton or Sanders have been deemed traitor as well. This out right intolerance has been sanctioned because of … Continue reading “But They Deserve It!” Liberalism & the Current Hate Machine
