    I feel the need to clarify a point. When I hear “Nobody is doing anything” I cringe because millions of people are indeed doing whatever they legally can to stop this madness. It is the Republican Party which is allowing this to continue. They can stop Trump TODAY, yet they will let Trump continue until their prospects for re-election dwindle…[Read more]

    Thanks Belle. I and many others didn’t vote for him. I accept no blame for him and the asshats in Congress who are supporting him. I marched in Boston for the Women’s March, and in Concord NH during the March for Science. I have sat with members of my community to send post cards to our congressional delegation about specific issues. I have called…[Read more]

    My question, and that of others on this thread and all around the world, is What now? What do I do right now? Do I call my representatives and tell them I’d like to not have a nuclear war? Do I gather my offspring and some MREs in the basement, light candles and await our doom? Do I give water to my livestock, or my family?  Should I stay or s…[Read more]

    That’s awesome! I know one of the characters in Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah quotes Snoopy the dog. I have to look it up.

    Today I told a Christian every time he mentions the Bible, I’m going to tell him about Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Him: Revelations reveals blah, blah, blah…” Me: “The Guide recommends a) owning a towel, and b) knowing where it is all times.” I believe my work is done for the day.

    @ Simon – I should have clarified the dream was one I had a long time ago. This person is interpreting it now, according to his beliefs. When I had the dream I didn’t give it any particular meaning. I was a little amused by the babies growing on sticks and a little disturbed by the ladies in French maid outfits. I have apparently watched too many…[Read more]

    Part of the “Life has been very weird” saga to which I referred when I returned to the site yesterday has to do with this very phenomenon. It all started when I made a comment about a You Tube video about Sodom and Gomorrah. One comment led to another until a certain Christian fellow decided a) God is talking to me, and b) God is telling HIM that…[Read more]
