Co-Ops Should be a much Bigger Thing

Co-operatives (co-ops) should be way more of a thing than they are.  I think that when the government doesn’t want to do its job to step in and help the citizenry, an opportunity is afforded to ordinary people to Continue reading “Co-Ops Should be a much Bigger Thing”

If Laws Applied to Everyone Like They Have Applied to Trump So Far, No One Would Be In Jail

There seems to be something very wrong with our legal system.  Trump, and people like him, didn’t just suddenly appear on the earth.  For a very long time now, laws have been applied very differently depending on who you are.

If we have laws, and everyone is expected to follow them; and generally, any ordinary person should be able to understand them; then you should not have to be– nor need acquire a lawyer to reason how those laws will be applied.

Therefore, it is plain and simple bullshit what is and has been going on since this nation has been formed.  If one person Continue reading “If Laws Applied to Everyone Like They Have Applied to Trump So Far, No One Would Be In Jail”

I think Progressives are the Adults in the Room

Yep, I truly believe that Progressives are the adults in the room called, our country, the USA. While modern day Republicans are the bullies and Democrats are timid and scared, Progressives, for the most part play the role of the adults.

Progressives don’t really want to bothered by the bickering but eventually– we have to engage. The Republicans want to keep all the goodies for themselves and their friends and the Democrats want the same, but pretend that what they want is something for “the people”. Real progressives Continue reading “I think Progressives are the Adults in the Room”

The Green Party Platform is Still There; and They are Still on Mission

The main elections are over… still got that runoff in Georgia though…  Go Warnock!  I wanted to see what progressives were still out there on mission and on point since the excitement has calmed and the fog has cleared.

To my contentment, many were still out there.  Talking, blogging, writing, and informing people about issues and important topics that need to be addressed.  And there they were, The Green Party Folks, unbothered about election turnouts and; still Continue reading “The Green Party Platform is Still There; and They are Still on Mission”

Let’s Talk About Salt

The other day, I was sitting at the table and was trying to decide which salt to use;  Table Salt or Sea Salt.  My inner self quietly asked, “why do you need to add extra salt at all?”  And I replied:  Because I want it!! I love that taste and flavor!   So, I reached over and added a “little” of each. 😳  Yep, I did that.  Now, I’m writing about why–amongst other things.

I usually reach for the salt shaker because of habit.  In my younger years, when I exercised a lot, or did a lot of manual work, it wasn’t an issue because I got a chance to sweat a lot.  Which, I think that might be the case for many people.  But now, I have a need to create a new habit.  Paying more attention to what and how I eat.

I’ve actually been moving in that direction for quite a while …since my days in the military.  But, Continue reading “Let’s Talk About Salt”
