Bass Ackwards

That was my grandmother’s phrase for something like this when she wanted to use profanity and knew she couldn’t as the wife of a very prominent deacon in the church. (Grandma was a pistol, let me tell you. If you’ve ever seen The Beverly Hillbillies, you’ve seen a version of her. Granny Clampett was theContinue reading “Bass Ackwards”

Learning To Receive

As humans, we are geared to be the ones who give to someone else. It just feels odd to be the one who accepts something when you have no possible way of giving a gift back or doing a favor in return.

Christian Nationalism

EXCELLENT blog post on the topic. Just stumbled across this one. People have a hard time with that ‘label’ and I don’t blame them a bit.

I wasn’t all that crazy about Hillary Clinton but I knew he was a rotten, low-down stinker from the jump. What IContinue reading “Desperate Wannabe Despot”

What Do Democrats Have To Offer? — Filosofa’s Word

This is a post that I read and enjoyed. She copied/pasted an article of Bernie Sanders that I find very pertinent to what I want to work toward. We do have more to offer than the Republican fascists. They are retro-gressive in their viewpoints. We want to move forward. They want to move us BACKWARDS.Continue reading “What Do Democrats Have To Offer? — Filosofa’s Word”
