Please stop Mr. Trump. Please.
Glorifying Rape...I am sorry, but any television program that relies on violence against women (in the form of rape) doesn't deserve its viewership. I'm speaking specifically of Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead. What's more, I'm not sure how folks who view themselves as being "progressive" can actually watch these shows. I can't. I no more want to see rape being enacted as part of a plot than I want to see kittens or puppies tortured.
All Is Not Glum...I know, so far this posting isn't all that uplifting, but I have to call them like I see them. For some balance, here's Metallica playing Enter Sandman using grade school musical instruments.
Muslim Registry...Let's file this idea, that of there being a national registry for the followers of Islam, in the category of "hopefully not actually going to happen". Today's registry of Muslim's could become a registry of Roman Catholics or Baptists tomorrow. Now if it should come to fruition, I publicly promise now on this page to register myself as a Muslim. I don't think I'll be alone in that regard either.
JeanLuc...I've had my cat JeanLuc for a little over six years now. Time flies, from this...
It's amazing the impact a pet can have on your life. For the record, he was almost named "Spock", although I made a case for calling him "Bill" (so I could call him "Bill the Cat"), but I was over-ruled by just about everyone.
The "Theory" of Global Warming...These are New Guinea impatiens (this variety is actually a tropical plant...see THIS description) that are, as of December 3rd, still alive and well on my front porch.
I'm tempted to put Christmas lights on them. Good thing that global warming is just a "concept" (put forth, according to the President elect, by the Chinese in order to harm U.S. manufacturing). And yes, he actually did say it...
My impatiens, alive and well, salute you Mr. Trump!
