Well I declared war on a relative who whined about The War on Christmas

This is what I said on FB:

Seriously? I have no problem with God or religion. I do have a problem when it is pushed on everyone by hypocrites. I don't care what holiday greeting used if it is said with genuine care. I do mind when it's used to make a point and becomes a weapon. Nobody has ever said that you have to get your religion out of your lives. They have said get your beliefs out of the lives of others who think differently.
Religions are to be kept out of government areas because they represent everyone. If you look at the history of religion in schools, it's not very pretty. Those who don't conform to the specific religious mores that are pushed have become targets of ridicule and intolerance.

AND let's take a look at what the good religious people did. You approved and elected a man who has had no discernible religious beliefs. He has zero idea about forgiveness which is the basis of Christianity. Jesus would run him and his cabinet out of every temple and church on Earth. So spare me the angst about Christmas and God. They will be just fine and strengthened by those who ACT like Christians. For the rest of you, 'Have a Holiday!'

Larry Colburn passed. A man you really should know!

At 18 years old, he aimed his M-60 machine gun at fellow US soldiers to stop the My Lai massacre in Vietnam

RIP Larry Colburn. You are the epitome of courage.
We should hope to exhibit half of your bravery.

I cannot get over this 'election.'

Friends and relatives seem to think this is just shits and grins and they put one over on somebody.
One cousin declared Bannon and Sessions weren't bigots from her perch in New Hampshire.

I have to meditate because I can almost become incandescent with rage.
This is not an effing game!

I am beginning to burn up Facebook and I am name-checking people. They think I'm crazy and I said I had utter contempt for their passivity and acceptance of abhorrent behavior.

Today is the 4th anniversary of Sandy Hook.

Alex Jones pushes the false flag conspiracy and the Dumb Dauphin listens to him.

Those kids and their parents deserve peace and respect.

I feel like I am in a cross between "All The President's Men"

and "Rocky and Bullwinkle."
This would be a helluva miniseries. I did not want any part in this though.

I threatened friends and family with my Mama's ghost if they denied science. lol

This has devolved. They seem to be in a cult and need deprogramming.

My Mama and the climate
If any of you who knew my Mama or were taught by her are thinking or saying climate change is fiction, she might just rise from the grave and get you. She did not suffer stupid people except for me at times. She would be giving all of you her type of hell.

I went to school with some of you and were in the same classes at times. You got a decent education in science. You are not stupid people or sheep. The evidence is out there in so many forms that the climate is changing rapidly that you have to willfully ignore it.

'Climate change as a myth' is being pushed by people with monetary interests in fossil fuels and in businesses that pollute the air. Yeah, I know . Get rid of those job-killing regulations. Go ahead. Before you do then look at China and India to see what's coming. Do you want decent air for yourself and especially your children? Clean water? If you think the battle over oil is something, the fight over water will dwarf it.

There is one point that those who dismiss climate change hang on to. It is that the climate has always changed. File that under NSS! The written historical record alone bears evidence of that in stories. Science has advanced the ability to measure previous change and the changes now. Yes SCIENCE. You can ignore it but that will not make it false. It's the RATE of change that man has caused that is concerning. They use this to dismiss any talk of climate change as just a regular occurrence.

In addition, we deforestation is a problem. Look up PHOTOSYNTHESIS. Plants absorb carbon dioxide which helps with the temperature.

So to sum up, Mama is on her way for all you people who know better but continue to deny facts just because you don't like them. Enjoy it. She might not leave for a while.
