BE SURE OF WHAT YOU SPEAK

Recently, a friend on Facebook made a brave break by positing that Christianity hangs about the necks of African Americans like a millstone and is responsible for much pain and suffering. Of course, his claim was immediately rejected and shot down with some even saying that "My Jesus would never do such a thing."But lost in the…See More

Campaigning: Take Back Our Country

While campaigning I had a group (8-10) of protesters at my rally saying all sorts of things, which is their right. However, when they came to shouting “Take Back Our Country” I was deeply offended but I didn’t show it. Instead, I gave them a history lesson about “our”’ country starting with the genocide of Native American Indians through slavery. My trail is already difficult and my chances of winning are an even chance but the protests talking about taking back our country particularly irked…See More

I've been so busy trying to get new Congresspeople elected for the 2018 elections that I haven't come past. I have a bunch of stuff I want to drop out here for opinions and reactions. I'm also busy running for City Council. I call it working from the inside. I will start again in a few weeks.

TIED MY ASS

Posted on September 14, 2016 at 10:16pm 29 Comments

TIED MY ASS—I'm a day late and a dollar short in publishing this, because I wrote it over two months ago, which is a long time in political hogwash.

It's August and I'd be willing to bet my last dollar that by the time voting begins in November the media will say the…

THE TALK

THE TALK

Thanks, Donald, for the link to the music. I like the way you phrased the music appreciation via education. I always seek out your posts.

Thanks, Donald.  Needless to say, I'm the guy with the Brooklyn accent.  Rev Jones is the cowboy and the pompous bombastic asshole is the imam.

Hi Don,

You said you would be interested in seeing what I come up with in reading about delayed food allergies.  I just posted a blog post on the likely mechanism of my kind of delayed food allergies.  With tons of references!
