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?

The Baby in the White House




There was a baby from the City
Who had to have his way.
He started rich but wanted more,
For no one, did he sway.

Golden Temples he did build
To honor HIM, they stood.
Truth was not an absolute!
  He'd make his own...then learned he could!

The White House was his destiny
And thus it came to pass.
The Oval Office is his crib
Gold curtains drape his ass.

The talking heads of NEWS keep saying
"Maybe he will change!"
But the Soul of this country
Has become deranged. 

There is another way:
