Watching the news…

he facts from the hype both from the broadcasters and the government types that they are quoting.

Even conspiracy sites have gone nuts.  When there is a good conspiracy, they tend to agree on main points, but they are all contradicting each other and even themselves from one post to another. 

Example:

Is Ebola

  1. False flag made up stuff to get us to agree to loss of liberty
  2. Spread by the Red Cross vaccinations
  3. Population control
  4. Vastly under reported as patients are “disappeared” from hospitals
  5. Scary stuff that is making people ditch science in favor of freaking out and getting people to freak out to boost ratings.  (yep, this one is mine)

I am all about being prepared and preventing the spread of contagious diseases, terrorists, and lying politicians but dang, ya’ll done gone stupid.  Now see, you made me go country on your ass.  

That ain’t good.

“For What It’s Worth”

There’s something happening here

But what it is ain’t exactly clear
There’s a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to bewareI think it’s time we stop
Children, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

There’s battle lines being drawn
Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong
Young people speaking’ their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

It’s time we stop
Hey, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, “hooray for our side”

It’s time we stop
Hey, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you’re always afraid
Step out of line, the men come and take you away

We better stop
Hey, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

We better stop
Hey, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

We better stop
Now, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

We better stop
Children, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

1870:  The 15th Amendment guarantees the voting rights of all men over 21 regardless of race or ethnic background

1920:  The 19th Amendment gave women over 21 the right to vote. Continue reading

Rocks in the Melting Pot

The danger of being an idealist is that you will have your heart broken. Everyone, including myself, falls short of the ideal on many occasion. When people seem to intentionally choose a less than ideal path, it can take the air out of me.

We live in a grand melting pot of different cultures, ideas, religions, and lifestyles. It seems as though people have been throwing rocks into the melting pot to try to keep us separated and from uniting to form a wonderful mix. I can make of juice out of foods I do not like: kale, pears, beets, parsley, chard and lemon. A wonderful symphony of nutrition and taste appear in my glass. So it is with ideas. No one person always has the best answer. We need to draw on the knowledge and experience of one another to create the the ideal symphony.
