My Day...

Sunrise...bird chirps stir the eyes open
and one decides...get up? Turn over?
And pee wins as always at 7 AM.

Why I watch the news? I require change and still have daily hope.
Nope.

PBJ on toast w/an orange.

The wife awakes. Turns off the news scowling at Donald. 

I brush Blue...Named MidNightBlue, our cat is a panther in size and claws.
My pale skin screams in lines of drying red. He was a true street cat...even has the tip of an ear clipped off by someone who likes labels. 

Okay...enough...nap time.

The Name Today is Stephon Clark....


Old cop shows would say, "The names were changed to protect the innocent." And, I wondered, as a white man almost 70, why I can't remember all the names. Today I can remember Stephon Clark. And I'm just trying to recall the last one and it isn't there...like with school shootings, the gun folks say, "It's too early...thoughts and prayers...." And...BOOM...it's the next one. Dead blacks, dead kids, dead people. And NOBODY is to blame...the cops are NEVER charged...the guns keep selling...the laws never change...the NRA keeps buying lawmakers who never make laws. 

Am I insane?

Paralyzed Leaders or How to Avoid Being Human





Leaders will not lead...except toward darkness...

Into darkness and the degradation of Humanity.

Is it greed that shines in their hearts or...
are they truly evil?

Children are speaking and Leaders are the silent minority.

Privilege...White...PERSONIFIED.



There's been plenty of discussion about "white privilege" lately...what it means...how it's expressed...and many explanations to white folk that just don't get it. Thank you Donald Trump for giving us a living portrait to help us understand:




“Oh, are you happy you voted for me. You are so lucky that I gave you that privilege," he said to a gathering of farmers. 

Well, Donald, over 3 million more voters chose to avoid that "privilege." 

My wife can not even listen to him speak anymore without nausea.

Waves of unease....

 
 
I felt this feeling first when young.
I could not put my finger on it...
My gut felt waves of unknown fear...
Like when my homework was not done.


Certain images make it rise...
An uneasy unpainful queasy...
Warning...
IT is coming!
WTF is it?

Want a Public Office? You must declare...:



All candidates for public office must begin their campaigns with the statement of their stand on guns.


Make your choices based on "Will they help?" 


Elevating HUMANITY in the universe depends on it.

Despair....





Everything we've won...
Is lost.
The Quest for my hope...
Humanity is not evil.
All of us is above chaos in our universe.
All of us is better than an animal.
We've shown the Universe who we are.
It knows the truth. 




Can we move the stone up the mountain?
