Evil "Educators" and Pulled Heartstrings I'm watching Freedom Writers on Netflix. It's an incredibly powerful story well worth watching-- again, in my case. I decided to write this because I saw evil monsters, and they were educators-- a teacher, an English Department head, a principal and the main character's husband (well, the husband may just be an a**hole. . And the damn movie is one of the touching, heartwarming movies I've ever watched.

Archaic Marijuana Witch Hunt Grounds BLACK Gold Medal Favorite Olympian Sha'Carri Richardson This is totaly outrageous. Sha'Carri Richardson tested positive for marijuana and the testing org, The United States Anti-Doping Agency. The NYTimes reported that her win in a key qualifying event was invalidated because of her pot use. That lowered her ranking AND made her ineligible to participate in the early parts of the Olympic games.

A Memorial Day for the Indigenous-- Reframing the Colonizers Today is Memorial day, a time to remember our lost soldiers. I propose we also remember the scores of millions of people killed by colonization. Or maybe we should have another day to remember them, and to remember and reframe the history of the psychopathic savagery with which mostly European colonizers killed aboriginal indigenous peoples and destroyed their cultures.

Updating My Laws of Religion in Light of Recent Events So much of religion has been unworthy of respect, has been profoundly toxic to humanity, justifying horrendous inhumanities. We need to set rules and figure out ways to get the people who practice such Devil's religions to shift to practices that are tolerant and respectful of other faiths, to beliefs that do not need to include stories or messaging that suggest their faith or god is superior. This can be done.

A Way to motivate Vaccination Acceptance and Free Us From Masks. This is a thought experiment that might work, but might also cause considerable consternation. I would rather not wear a mask if I don't have to, once I'm two weeks out from my second vaccine shot. It would be nice if a badge could be issued, so if you are vaccinated you don't have to wear a mask. That way people could choose, mask or vaccine. I have a feeling it would motivate a lot of people.
