Me, You, and War

I was born only two hours before the atomic bomb annihilated Hiroshima, so don’t blame me for it.  You and I are born into hate-ridden tragedies usurping hopeful visions of kindness, justice, and mutual happiness.  Perhaps you agree. Nor should I (or you) be blamed for Korea, Vietnam, Granada, Panama, or the wars on Central America, or Iraq, or Afghanistan, or the needless new ones brewing on Venezuela and Iran.  Please don’t blame me for my country’s growing alliances with murderous dictators and dangerous war-mongers…

The French Broad, Thomas Jefferson, and a Holy Hope

Sure, Thomas Jefferson was the sort of man who appreciated the French and their women, but in this case, the “broad” refers to a wide, flat ancient river.  Lets review the river and the man towards our honoring both by living up to who we could yet be. I've left the cold of an Oregon winter for the cold of North Carolina's western mountains.  I'm five miles out of Marshall, NC, former Madison County seat, now home to about 400 residents supporting three cafes, two…

Fake Truth

The truth is all the rage these days - claimed by those who subvert it.  We need to rise above the confusion, collusion, and delusion to be whole with who we are and what we really know.  The Blind Saint of Vrindivan, who I met in India, says we are viveka (inner knowing) that shines on aviveka (untruth, not-us).  By seeing aviveka and renouncing it we grow free from illusions and lies, and we come to live from our own precious center. Dance Freely with…

Bong Iran!

See at Avaaz and Zazzle/Bonoville We're in the midst on yet another pre-war round of dehumanizing an "enemy."  Iran isn't our enemy.  However, murderous hawks in our own government try to set them up as enemies.  We're supplying Saudi Arabia with billions of dollars worth of advanced weapons currently being inflicted on the hapless residents of Yemen, who the Saudis fear and attack.  This is the same Saudi Arabia that murdered the journalist Kashoggi, hacked apart his pathetic body, and (so far) gotten away with…

Good Earthkeeping Tools and Trends for November, 2018

Why do this?  I continue to gather news that tells of those tools andtrends that affect our global situation.  While some don't care about newtechnologies and policies, I think both are crucial in rescuing us from theplight of global warming and similar problems for life on earth, primarily for humans, but for plants and animals too.  Positive tools and trends are even more important and are included here along with the blunders and bummers. I used to do these reports at my radio show at KSKQ. …

Funny?

This week, I laugh to keep from crying or flying into disgust and stifled rage. So I've inserted some jokes.

“Crazy for God” Review

When I’m sorry a book ends, I know it was good. I liked Frank Schaffer’s Crazy for God. His honesty, self-deprecating humor, gentle critiques of his Christian context, and scathing rebuke of those who co-opt Christianity for partisan divisiveness - all make me admire him.

Good Earthkeeping Tools and Trends for September, 2018

This may be my last Good Earthkeeping Tools and Trends. KSKQ has changed the two-hour Morning Show, changing the first hour to Amy Goodman's Democracy Now! After three years of bringing in such tools and trends, I may start an evening radio show, The Liberal Hour, or invest my time in other related ventures.

For all Marys – Mothers, Lovers, Helpers

“My Goddess Gave Birth to Your God” reads the bumper sticker.  The growing notion that God is not just and only male is well known in our UU churches and in other niches in society.  Feminism has grown with us for decades and centuries.  Gradually, it spreads around the world, bringing women status, freedoms, compensation, and rights in societies where patriarchy has ruled unquestioned for millennia.  We need the Divine Mother, not just Our Father.  But let’s also be careful to not just honor the…
