Seeing Jesus

So everyday on my drive to work I see this man who would 100% pass as the White Man Jesus.  Sometimes his hair is down and loose.

Sometimes he pulls it back out of his face.  He always wears sandals.  Sometimes he’s reading a book.  I’m guessing that it’s the New Testament…you know because he’s White Man Jesus.  I think if there is a morning I don’t see him I will panic a little.  You know, WMJ has had enough of White Crazy People and leave.  That would make me sad.

The Culture of Boys Will Be Boys

This Brett Kavanaugh thing is ludicrous in that the Republican male dominate Judiciary Committee has decided to attack rather than do what is best for America…again.  Yesterday, Donald Trump compared himself to Judge Kavanaugh in the sense that he too was a victim of a smear campaign by women.  Mr. Trump forgets that he paid these women to stay silent about his infidelity.  If he didn’t do it he wouldn’t need to pay them off.  In the end, his Evangelical Base listened to the words of Satan  and Fox News and forgave Mr. Trump for breaking one of God’s commandments (there are only 10).

The Republican led Judiciary Committee thought they could just do a bums rush on Judge Kavenaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.  No real hearing, no tough questions, just a pat on the back ole boy and you are in for the next 40 or so years.

Mr. Grassley and his cronies have decided to use a Woman prosecutor to question Dr. Ford so they don’t get their hands dirty.  They really do not see the importance of these hearings and why this particular event came to be.  Judge Kavanaugh’s disrespect of women is an important factor because he will possibly rule on Roe v Wade and other women’s  cases.  Since there was no serious hearing on his opinions of the laws the Democrats forced a discussion.  Was it right?  Who knows but what is important is that Judge Kavanaugh is willing to lie about his past to become a Supreme Court Judge.  He wasn’t a drunken fool in High School or College yet his own yearbook says this is patently  lying.  His friend’s book about his debauchery in High School corroborates the things that happened.  Yet, Judge Kavanaugh went on Fox News to plead his case with the Base (White Guys feeling disenfranchised) he made it sound like everyone else was partying.

It’s rather repulsive that Collins and Murkowski, both women and republican constantly vote the party and not for their constituency or in this case the women of our country.

In the end, Judge Kavanaugh was an over indulged teenager with wealthy parent who sent him to an expensive Prep School.  A Prep School knows for it’s debauchery that was only curtailed after a Kennedy died of a drug overdose.  He was an entitled white male in the 80’s.  That behavior of entitlement doesn’t dissipate because he grew up.  His views as a Judiciary are scary, especially for women.  His daughters now can read all about how he and his friends victimized a girl called Renate in their yearbook.

Kavanaugh isn’t the only candidate for this position.  The lack of information allowed by the Republican Committee is circumspect.  What are they hiding?  Why can’t you dump Kavanaugh for a better Supreme Court Nominee?

It’s time for a Woman President!  It’s time for more women to standup and take narrative away from the abuser.  It’s time for Grassley, Hatch and the other immoral misogynists of Congress to take heed that women have an enough of their Crap!

This is my opinion, as a woman and a republican.

Gritty Is A Thing of Nightmares

Can we talk?  I mean yesterday was filled with some crazy ass stuff.

No, not politics….this….

This is Gritty (stupid name) the just unveiled new mascot of the Philadelphia Flyers.  Next to him is the adorable Philadelphia Phillies’ mascot, the Phanatic.  Do you see the issue?  Gritty is the thing that nightmares are made of and the Phanatic is hugable and lovable.

The jokes immediately started on Social Media.  I’m pretty sure that was not the intention of the Flyers organization.  This demented mascot is something that would terrify, not give one the warm and fuzzies.

What is most disturbing is the fact this was the final result of at least a year’s research and demos.  This was the one that won out over all other designs submitted.  This was the final selection by the top brass of the Flyers Organization.  The head shaking of Philly Phans is loud.  We’ve become the national reject of Mascots.  This thing looks like a meth-head not something you would buy in toy form for your child.

I’m guessing someone or someones will be fired over this nightmare of a mascot.  Oh and Gritty as it’s name?  WTH does Gritty have to do with Hockey or the Flyers in general?   So until the powers that be fix this mess Philadelphia is the laughing-stock of the sports world.

The FOSP – Benihanna Edition

So it’s not the typical French Onion Soup that I generally eat.  In fact, they just call it Onion Soup.

It was super tasty.  Very light for a first course offering.  It had a sort of umami quality to it.  I was completely taken by surprise the amount of flavor in this seemingly simple broth.

It had so much more going on in this bowl than one can see from this picture.

I liked it a lot!  It gets high praise from this French Onion Soup Fan 🙂

Puppies and Nature

So I was taking a walk in the Neighborhood and I came across this enormous mushroom.

I’ve not seen one this big in a long time.  I’m sure it was aided in growing so large by the very humid, rainy and hot environment of the last two weeks.  So of course I had to do this…

What can I say…I’m just and over-aged child.

 

She’s Gone

You were the first of my brothers and sisters to leave us.  It’s been almost 3 weeks since you died and I can’t let go of the grief.  I busy myself but it’s still raw and there.

You can shed tears that she is gone
or you can smile because she has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
or you can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember her and only that she’s gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back
or you can do what she’d want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

You were Daughter, Wife, Mother, Sister and Best Friend to so many.  You touched so many lives.  Your death leaves a void in the world.
