You humans make me tired.
You destroy each other focusing on differences
vs: what you have in common. #bekind

The myth is that the deregulation or privatization of a moral mission of government eliminates government.

But it doesn’t. Large corporations also govern our lives – often making life and death decisions that affect us.

Government isn’t eliminated. It is just shifted from the public sector, where there is an ethic of protection and public accountability, to the private sector, where there is an ethic of profit and no public accountability.
-George Lakoff from Moral Politics, 2002

It’s the first day of spring and it’s snowing again. This winter has been horrible for the East Coast with massive snowfall in some areas and others bitter cold. In the Philadelphia and surrounding areas it’s the coldest in 38 years. Yet I heard on the news last night this winter was one of the warmest on record – except for the East Coast which was unseasonably cold, (no kidding!.)

I think this quote about sums it up for me and how I’m feeling.

"The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another.

  The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month."

-Henry Van Dyke

choice was hers.

With the current outbreak of measles which started in California there’s plenty of blame going around. The public is quick to blame the ’stupid’ anti-vaxers who do not have sufficient intellect to decipher fact from fiction,  ‘I read it on the internet that it causes autism so it must be true’.

You might find this surprising.

  • Schools in some of Los Angeles’s wealthiest neighborhoods now have similar vaccination rates to developing countries like Chad and South Sudan. At the Kabbelah Children’s Academy preschool in Beverly Hills, 57 percent of parents have filed a “personal belief exemption” from vaccinations, as have 68 percent at the Waldorf Early Childhood Center in Santa Monica.

So before you’re quick to blame the tea party and Republicans you might want to look at the elite Hollywood liberals. Like Bill Maher, on last nights show jumped right into the debate saying , “I’m not an anti-vaxer….however” and went on to say he would never get a flu shot or any other vaccine. Well if that’s not an anti-vaxer I don’t know what is.
