Re: Veterans on Patrol #OperationBackyardBrawl

We usually throw a Halloween party which always includes trick or treating, but since it's not a custom here, I ask the neighbours a week before and drop off candy for anyone who wants trick or treaters (with plenty of extras as a thank you.) My neighbours are awesome. One is a Jehovah's Witness but...

Re: Headed off for the hospital

Chemo and radiology caused major breathing problems for my MIL. Radiology kind of makes sense (she had breast cancer and it's hard to target the breast without also hitting the lungs) but her oncologist kept saying the chemo shouldn't affect her breathing - but it did. In her case it's taken about t...

Re: "We haven't disappeared; We're just traveling."

We're off to New Caledonia in two days. I would say I'll be thinking of you, but let's face it, I won't. All I can think of now are those white sandy beaches and the beautiful little city that is Nouméa.

Re: Tonight's Doctor Who episode.

In this one case, the lack of a motive seemed to be a statement about the lack of motivation for racist hatred; the show seemed to portray it as a disease that exists without reason. Extending its own existence was its only purpose. A warning that we must be eternally vigilant. At least, that's wha...

I'm not going to make light of the blessing because I've had a couple in my own life and I believe they helped.

Re: Tonight's Doctor Who episode.

I loved that Rosa Parks looked at Ryan at the end. I thought they'd have her look at the Doctor, since the Doctor is always the hero. But by having her look at Ryan instead, she was saying, I know what I'm doing and I'm doing this for you. Portia - I'm just always curious about motivations. He didn'...

It would appear I'm wrong about the Southern Baptists taking this action recently; the only transgender resolution I could find dates from 2014. It states in part, "Resolved, That the messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention meeting in Baltimore, Maryland, June 10–11, 2014, affirm God’s good de...

Re: #WontBeErased

I don't have the source, but a friend of mine, whose child's partner is transitioning, told me that the Southern Baptists also voted in the last couple of days to not recognise transgendered people. So perhaps Trump's actions are just more dog whistling to his base.

Re: Tonight's Doctor Who episode.

I watched the show and found some of it difficult simply because that sort of naked racism makes me squirm ... which was the writers' intent, I'm sure. And an intent I can't disapprove of. The one aspect of borrowing a real bit of history that I was uncomfortable with was the rewriting of Ms. Parks...

Oh yeah! We saw that in the spoilers last week. Of course the kids had to be reminded about who Rosa Parks was, so we played them this clip from that other classic British TV show, Horrible Histories:

Or we could look at macro solutions. Compulsory voting means major parties have to be fairly central if they want a snowball's chance at actually gaining government, while also allowing for fringe parties which can attract the freaks and weirdos. Added bonus - the government can't enact laws like ph...

Because heaven fucking forbid we try to tackle more than one problem at a time huh? It's like every time there's a shooting and the other side says we can't talk about gun control, let's talk about mental health instead. Because apparently humans are too small-minded to get nuance.
