About Me

May need to limit my time on DU, so if I don't get back to you right away, it's not personal. I've been ON DU so much I got a lot of other stuff to do. See ya' soon.

Journal Archives

EVEN some Republicans are idealists. They WANT their party to be GOOD and have honest values.

We see their lack of support for taxes that address inequality and/or assisting the poor as killing off children.

They see our support of abortion rights as killing off children.


FROM those vantage points BOTH SIDES can see anything "THEY" do as coming from a bad or wicked impulse.


There ARE so many whackos on the Reich Wing side that want WHITE PEOPLE to tell everyone HOW they SHOULD LIVE and they are LOUD.

BUT we have a lot of people that want to live however they choose no matter what anyone thinks about it too.


For devout Christians who believe in Religious law vs personal faith and not judging others, supporting (as in not only condoning but celebrating) someone else in their hedonism (whatever flavor) is appalling.



LEGALLY, we can probably expect a compromise that keeps the law out of our bedrooms and decisions, BUT the whole pronoun stuff and supporting people's choices by mandate may appear to them as invasive as banning abortion is to US.


We see "them" bowing and scraping to the rich and doing their bidding, but a lot of that is structural and "they" as a populace may not realize how they are manipulated.

They see US as promoting hedonism, which is maybe overstated. We figure if someone else wants to live in freedom and make choices we wouldn't, it's on them, not US.


As a moderate DEM, I think without a Civil War we get back these portions of ROE:

Allow abortion to protect the life of the mother.
Allow abortion in case of an nonviable fetus, miscarriage is natural and does the same thing.
AND give US ALL FORMS of birth control that can be done in advance or within the first month:
Birth Control Pill
IUD
Manual Contraceptives that block or stop pregnancy
Morning After Pill
AND D&C in case of rape or incest.


Then we turn abortion into more of a last option remedy and expect our population to make their birth control decisions in advance and not lean on abortion as a simple option for unwanted pregnancy.

In some ways it isn't "fair" BUT it acknowledges their desire to protect the unborn AND still allows people to make choices about pregnancy which keeps women free.



If God, Himself, gave US free will, why does the Reich Wing feel THEY know better what HE wants?

As a Christian, I truly believe that God will help anyone who wants to have a child and even if it's a surprise or a rape, God can help turn it around. Miracles happen.

As a woman, I don't think it's my call to decide about who anyone should love or if they use birth control or keep a child or give it up or have an abortion. Personal choice is why God put US here.

So WHY if GOD Himself is not interfering with people's free will in these areas and He didn't put it in the 10 Commandments does the Reich Wing feel it is THEIR job to enforce what God leaves up to individual choice?

I am sure God would love to see every child loved and welcomed into this world with open arms and parents who are ready, willing and able or at least game enough to get prepared in the 9 months it takes for a little one to arrive (as much as one can manage) to be responsible for a new life.

But if I can understand that circumstances vary all around the world and person to person, I am pretty sure God gets it and takes these matters on a case by case basis and tries to help people through it one way or another if He is asked for help.

It just seems REALLY POWER HUNGRY to put oneself in the place of GOD and DECIDE ON HIS BEHALF what should/should not be done.


Any one else think that way?

tRump is officially the SECOND WORST pRez in history.

SORRY EVERYONE, there were several links from different sources. Here is the 2021 link to the survey that once finished rounded out the numbers.

https://www.c-span.org/presidentsurvey2021/?page=overall



https://www.usnews.com/news/special-reports/the-worst-presidents/articles/how-historians-rate-presidents

The 1948 Schlesinger poll ranked Warren G. Harding, Ulysses S. Grant, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan and Zachary Taylor as the five worst presidents in American history. In the 1982 Siena poll, the list was the same, save for Andrew Johnson taking Taylor's spot in the bottom five. Future iterations of the poll saw little turnover among the worst of the bunch, with Johnson, Buchanan, Harding and Pierce perennial presences.

"The presidents at the bottom were the ones who failed to safeguard us and adequately lead us during periods of crisis, or tainted the office through scandal and incompetence," Levy says. "Andrew Johnson, James Buchanan, Warren G. Harding they earned their spots at the bottom."

In a bid to determine which presidents are viewed as the least successful in American history, U.S. News averaged the results of three recent scholarly surveys the latest rankings from Siena College and C-SPAN, as well as a Presidential Greatness poll conducted by researchers at the University of Houston and Boise State.

After extensive debate by historians and experts throughout his presidency about where he might land upon a list of the oval office's worst, Donald Trump is the second-worst president in the U.S. News Worst Presidents rankings.

The ELEPHANT in the room. OPTICS - MAGA dog whistle alert

SO because tRump ABUSED the National Guard by sicking them on peaceful protestors and wanting to send the Army in for BLM protests, NOW they are worried about "optics".

BULLSHIT. They don't want people seeing National Guard dealing with WHITE vigilantes.





https://www.npr.org/2021/01/11/955548910/ex-capitol-police-chief-rebuffs-claims-national-guard-was-never-called-during-ri

Sund told the Post that House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving was concerned with the "optics" of declaring an emergency ahead of the protests and rejected a National Guard presence. He says Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Michael Stenger recommended that he informally request the Guard to be ready in case it was needed to maintain security.

Over 80 feared dead in attack on Catholic church in Nigeria

12 Year Old HOLDS UP GAS STATION with a GUN. Michigan



Reading "If God Is Love, Don't Be A Jerk" by John Pavlovitz

I've been out of "box church" for a long time.

I still respect people who go and find the new Pope refreshing in his sincerity.

Because so much of the politics seem entangled in the Church, it's hard for me to get reattached.

In the past, I've gone back to listen to what God has for me and done my best to ignore the rest.

This book is challenging me to think exactly what my view of God is.

My hope is by the end of it, I will figure out where I belong in the Church world.

Anyone else read this book?

If so, did you get any good insights?

Never really thought about Meghan Trainor before, but I like this song.

No Excuses



Lyrics
What you sippin' on that got you talking crazy?
Lookin' at me sideways, always coming at me
Why you, why you acting hard when you just a baby?
Boy, I keep it real with you, but you trying to play me
Have you lost your mind?
Open up your eyes
Huh!
You must have confused me, confused me with
(Someone else) You must have confused me, confused me with
(Someone else) There ain't no excuses, excuses, babe
(Someone else) Your mama raised you better than that, huh!
What you sippin' on that got you talking crazy?
Lookin' at me sideways, always coming at me
Why you, why you acting like you never met a lady?
I don't disrespect you, don't you disrespect me
Have you lost your mind? (lost your mind)
Open up your eyes
Huh!
You must have confused me, confused me with
(Someone else) You must have confused me, confused me with
(Someone else) There ain't no excuses, excuses, babe
(Someone else) Your mama raised you better than that, huh!
'Cause your mama raised you better than that
'Cause your mama raised you better than that
Have you lost your mind?
Open up your eyes (your eyes)
Huh!
You must have confused me, confused me with
(Someone else) There ain't no excuses, excuses, babe (no excuses, no, no)
(Someone else) Your mama raised you better than that, huh! (how she raise you?)
You must have confused me, confused me with
Your mama raised you better than, better than that
There ain't no excuses, excuses, babe
'Cause your mama raised you better than that, huh! (she raised you better than that)

Help. My son is drinking the kool-aide. He thinks DEMS stole his vote.

He says that his wife's vote counted, but his didn't that he checked and he wasn't registered, and it shows he did not vote.

So I asked him, "Who is it who wants to restrict voting rights?"

"Oh, so you have to show an ID." He said dismissively.

"And in states where people have to wait hours to vote, and it's dangerously hot, who put in legislation to prevent people from bring water to voters in line?"

The DEMOCRATS he said.


NO NO NO NO Never the DEMS. But he insists.


So my southern friends, can you help me find the legislation and the backers of these horrible bills? I might find them first, but in case he thinks I am lying.... or misinformed by the main stream media.
