My Way or the Highway!

What a crappy attitude and outlook has commandeered the public discourse of the day. I have sometimes posted comments or sent along videos on Facebook, and have been creamed for it. I've been called a racist, a bigot, a hater, a self-righteous jackass. Now mind you, I've not posted anything like that, but because someone has a viewpoint different than mine, I'm labeled with vicious, demeaning descriptors. An example was posting something that said if you can protest or riot in person, your can vote in person. It was a VOTING issue I was bringing up. Whoa, did that unleash the comments. A number of people, some I don't know very well, hijacked the comments and away we go...hater, bigot, what are you doing to change the world, etc. The fight then starts between the people commenting on my post! My point today is this... If you disagree with me or anyone else, especially on social media, please use comments that contain facts and not conjecture, none of the "your

I'm Not OK and You're Not OK

Back in the 1960's, a book was published, titled, I'm Ok, You're Ok.  It sold about 15 million copies. People rushed to read the new way to get along with others, understand yourself and work your way through the psychological underpinnings of the day.

Hmm, if anyone one hasn't's not working because, "I'm Not Ok and You're Not Ok"! There is one basic tenet that most of the "thinkers" of the day have forgotten...the human nature is broken. And not because God broke it. The disobedience of Adam caused the separation from the perfection of God, thus the imperfection of man. People see the corrosion of behavior, so they pass a law. That ends up with loop holes, so they pass another law. Laws won't change your broken nature. They may hold you in ch

A World Gone Mad

Yikes-it's been a long time since I've posted. Lots going on in life. Both hips replaced at the local VA Hospital. Had outstanding care and results. Back in the fight, so to speak. Our world is a bit in turmoil, ya' think! Some are wondering how we got here, from the coronavirus pandemic to the riots and looting in our streets. I don't wonder at all. We have kicked God and all His holy principles out of the center of our families, community, state and nation. We are told that we are to keep our spiritual lives to ourselves. Now stop and think on that for a minute. As a Pagan, or Wiccan, you can voice your beliefs, but anything to do with have to keep that "private". I, for one, don't want Christian principles to be "private". I want integrity, sexual purity, sobriety, service before self and excellence in all we do to be shouted from the roof tops; to be taught in every family and schoolroom. But there is a bit of a problem her
