Contrived Rituals of Patriotism

0 comments

Are you angry about the NFL players kneeling during the national anthem? Make sure you fill your regular pew this Sunday morning. Just be careful not to attend a service where they say things like “Love they neighbor as thyself,” because you might feel a tad uncomfortable. NO. Stay far away from those who speak […]

Scapegoating

When I was a freshman in high school, I had the opportunity to take Psychology 101, which rocked my world. Finally, I was able to make sense out of the behavior of more than a few people that simply boggled my mind. The lack of accountability, morals, truth, and simple kindness, was a lack that […]

No doubt we all run into little mistakes every day. It always seems that when I’ve had a particularly stressful or even a slightly trying day, that some mistakes stand out more than others. I don’t get particularly annoyed by them, but I do wonder why we tend to just accept certain sayings without ever […]

HoeflerText font alert

Have you seen it? The HoeflerText font alert is a scam that is associated with a Facebook ad that I clicked on today. I never trust ads because they are so easy for hackers to mess with. Unfortunately, one cannot tell if the actual person that placed the ad is the “bad guy,” or if […]

See for yourself… “Alexa, take a video.”  Alexa, you are brilliant. Yes, brilliant. Especially if your toddler is dancing, or you want to […]

My love of cultural anthropology and my studies of world religions have enriched and enlightened my life. I am always seeking new information about other cultures because not only is it educational, but it also brings into sharper focus how much we have in common with each other, not only across cultural and national boundaries, […]

The Snow Moon, aka the full moon of February 10-11, 2017, also brings us a penumbral lunar eclipse and the New Year Comet. The comet only appears to us earthlings every 5 years. It’s a grand celestial event, even though most of us will not be able to view it. On Friday (Feb. 10), just […]

There’s a Facebook post written by Senator Chris McDaniel (R-MS) whining about the Women’s March and declaring that liberals are unhappy, among other things. Then there’s a great rebuttal. Happy Marchers in Montana First, here is my comment on the article… I take issue with the statement that liberals are not happy. As a liberal, […]

Free Press

So many times we get frustrated by the tales of the so-called press as they offer up their propaganda, especially during times of political unrest such as what we experienced in 2016. The current sentiment of most journalists is that it’s all about telling the best story, even when it’s fiction simply disguised as truth. […]

The Kardashians

0 comments

A few months ago, when I was fed up with the ridiculous slurs and insulting memes regarding the Kardashians, I decided to actually watch the show to see what all of this hate drama is about. I am still watching reruns and trying to keep up with current shows when I have time. Obviously, many more […]
