Maybe Jesus did not say to love your enemy. Maybe what Jesus said was to show kindness to everyone. This is a practice thing, rather than a belief thing. It is not as much fun to be nice to someone, as it is to scream about life after death. Kindness does not need to be justified by a quote from a magic book. You just need to do it. ~ https ~ How to set up a VPN in 10 minutes for free (and why you urgently need one) ~ Silence U: Is the University Killing Free Speech and Open Debate? | We the Internet Documentary ~ Black Lives Matter Disavows Atlanta ‘President’ Sir Maejor ~ This Road Is Closed For Domestic Terrorism ~ stown music ~ American survivors tell the inside story ~ Charles Bukowski Rails Against 9-to-5 Jobs in a Brutally Honest Letter (1986) ~ Sanders defends Trump voters: I don’t think they’re racists, sexists or homophobes ~ woke aryeh @tweetertation ~ “‘Til the swear jar’s full”: Penances, pennies, and profanities ~ While looking through my archives, I found a 2015 post. Somebody had compared Mike Pence to Lester Maddox. There is this line: “Getting back to Lester, it is ironic that he is this famous forty four years after his term in office ended. There is no shortage of bad things to say about Mr. Maddox. However, Georgia survived having both him, and smiling Jimmy, as Governor. It is highly unlikely that anyone will know who this Pence person is in forty four years.” As usual, the pictures are better than the text. ~ Trending topics one and four are #LasVegasRaiders and #JohnnyRotten ~ The space where the Cherokee Plaza Theater was is now the produce section at Kroger. The space where the Broadview Plaza GSEMH operated is now the parking lot for a Home Depot. ~ Hair is either fine, or coarse. If you are found guilty, and owe the court money, they call it a fine. ~ @ConnerHabib You are allowed to ask questions. Even ones people say are stupid/you should be ashamed of. Even forbidden ones. Especially forbidden ones. @chamblee54 what about forbidden twos? ~ Can you publish this transcript? I would like to comment on this monolog, but my transcription skills are not what they should be… maybe I am a cis-scriber. ~ @EricaJong What is the context of that quote? When and where did you say it? What is a metaphor for a meme graphic quote without a source? ~ @AryehCW trump grammar twitter, this is a sentence fragment, haiku middle line ~ Separation of church and state is a sweet deal for the church. Let the government do the messy, though necessary, job of making the country work. Let the church do what it does. The government does as good a job of nourishing the soul as the church does of picking up garbage. ~ KimKierkegaardashian‏ @KimKierkegaard I feel forsaken by God. He’s just not that into me ~ I had always heard that Tattletales was a hot club. ~ This video is unlisted. Be considerate and think twice before sharing. ~ with listening to music and birds singing i can’t keep up with the handful of podcasts i already follow then #stown came along… ~ From the comments: AJ Garcia • Sorry for the loss but I just wanted to be known that a rainbow flag doesn’t represent me as a gay person it stereotypes me and I don’t like it Stryka Pose Will someone find a flag with an asshole on it so AJ can be respectfully represented? ~ Good morning my friend. I am thinking about the April Heart Circle at my house. A while back I believe you posted information about heart circles. As part of the opening ritual would you share some of that history and information with those of us who are gathered. ~ I am not sure what I would say. I am also not sure that is a good idea. To me, the concept of the heart circle is simplicity. One person speaks, and the others listen. The talisman/talking stick is held by the person who speaks, and given to the next person to speak. Only the person holding the stick can speak. The stick can either go around the room, or can go to the middle, to be picked up by the next to speak. As for history… I really don’t know the history. ~ there is a lovely quote, which i cannot find easily but will try to recreate: a heart circle is a faerie technology. It is a cross between a quaker meeting, a room temperature sweat lodge, and the collective experience of cruising Christopher Street in 1972 ~ I don’t recall doing that. I really don’t know about the origins. I know when i was first going to faerie events, they would have a check in, where everyone said something in turn. At gatherings, they would have a morning circle, with announcements and check in. I never heard the phrase heart circle until the nineties, when I was reading about California gatherings of something called the billy club ~ Marta expansion would have had little to do with the i85 collapse. Ironically, the fire was across the street from Marta’s rail car storage yard. ~ @ScienceAndJokes Two atoms are walking along. One of them says: “Oh, no, I think I lost an electron.” “Are you sure?” “Yes, I’m positive.” ~ I don’t know about the newspaper, but DJT seems to be recycling Nixon ~ The democratic obsession with racism helped get Mr. Trump elected. They knew the entire litany of problems with the orange haired idiot, and chose to focus on his racial attitudes. Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Russians paid the Democrats to run this clueless, racism obsessed campaign. It helped get their stooge elected. ~ the choice was between a sexual predator and the enabling wife of a sexual predator ~ After you sonnetize, give it an acrostic retrofit. Especially if you name has 14 letters. …. the spell check suggestion for sonnetize is monetize…. good luck. ~ Thank you for posting this. Getting past I85 is going to be difficult for the next few months. ~ Know the difference between having your soul on fire, and your pants ~ This page is currently offline.
