The inability to know.

 It says a lot about our culture and the raising of boys for many generations. Males, looking at Fraternities, gives one the sense that they really don't understand the lines separating the sexes and the mixture of youth, immaturity and no adult guidance in the frats. Even the girls grew up thinking the boys shenanigans was just a normal part of boy girl relationships. No one told them that certain behavior should not and cannot be accepted. Mind sets of both is a hard thing to change when its all they've known.  We may have to start over, beginning with the parents............marge

Judge Roy Moore

I don't know the man  or anything about him except for what I see on the 'news'.  I believe he's the first person of recent years who has been found guilty of a crime but was not charged, arrested or had a trial.  I didn't know our Constitution worked that way.  Isn't there supposed to be an unbiased jury of his peers or a Judge who gets to decide his fate after being charged?  Perhaps I missed that part where the charging and trial  took place.  About unbiased.  There's not an American citizen who hasn't heard of his supposed escapades.  So I'm not sure there can be a 'fair trial'.  Let us start using the laws of our land, not the information we hear on our computer and television.  When did we decide to push aside the Constitution written by our Forefathers?   Our Civil Rights are going to Hell and quickly........................marge

If we don't know by now...

We wonder why mass killings seemingly all men, continue and increase on a weekly basis.  Of all the mind studying to date, no one has a handle on it.  We teach our young men and now young women to not only operate but how to use assorted weapons.  Is it truly mental illness or sudden unknown anger? for reasons we haven't still don't seem to understand these take over.  Rage really has taken over society.  As an example, road rage.  Are those shooters so incensed they don't care if they go to jail for the rest of their lives, just because another driver does something selfish or stupid?  What stops their automatic reasoning abilities?  They must know they will be caught.  How can they not care about being locked up for many years?  When in custody, they realize their behavior was not reasonable or logical it seems.  To the guns, the biggest and best for them.  These people couldn't do their deed with knives.  Guns are the starting point and yes, let's blame the manufacturers.  Weather it's their fault or not.  A place to start.  Who owns guns and why is it terribly important, especially having them in their autos?  WE have some answers and reasons, but we don't seem to realize their importance...................marge

This newly formed phrase is missing.

'He has went' and 'it don't matter' drive me crazier than usual.  Now, used by even the most eminent newscasters is a two worded phrase.  I will type it for you but if there's a two minute pause, please excuse me.  It depends on how badly I gag as I write it.  What makes this phrase even worse, it replaces just one word where now two are required.  The sense of it is beyond me.  Ready?  16 people 'went missing' after going for a hike in the wilderness.  Or one, or two, it doesn't matter.  They all 'went missing'...Sigh.  For now I shall 'disappear'.......................marge

Maybe I judged too quickly

I started out thinking Colin Kaepernick didn't put much thought into his beginning actions.  He was just trying to get attention.  As I've listened to  civilians  and soldiers speak, I think I now better understand what he is trying to say.  He wasn't disrespecting the American flag or our National Anthem, It was and is his way to to get all of us to see the unjust and unfairness to people that goes on everyday.  We need to open our eyes and hearts to really see ourselves, and change.  We can do better.  We must do better...................marge

From my dearest Friend.

For a friend:
Certainly, in the most difficult moments of life you realize who are true friends or the people who really appreciate you 😊 Unfortunately, in most friendships, they will leave you but still send you a "like". In reality they do not take time to read your status if they see it's lengthy. More than half will stop reading right here.
I decided to post this message in support of a very special person to me who fought with everything they had with firmness and energy. Who taught us how to live each day as if it were the most beautiful day! Who has filled the world with a beautiful smile and a sweet spirit.
This is a little test --- just to see who reads and who shares without reading. If you have read everything so far, select "like" so I can put a thank you in your profile.
Cancer is very invasive and destructive to our body, even after the end of the treatment, your body is still fighting with yourself trying to reconstruct all the damage caused by radiation. It's a very long process. Please, in honor of a family member or a friend who died, or is still fighting cancer, or even had cancer and is in remission; copy and paste this status on your wall. I believe a select few of my friends will post this to show their support for their family/friend who may be struggling.
I'd like to know who I can count on to take a minute out of their day and actually read my status, follow instructions and write "done" in the comments. Thank you!

It's not pretend. It is real

Watching Trump is like watching a TV horror movie. But you know what folks? This ain't no movie. Everything you see and hear is real, not made up. Have we no shame? Have we no guilt? Is every last one of us Narcissistic? The horrors being so far away, does not lessen the horror. You can't seem to feel it but can't you even see it? As an older woman once said to me, " one death is a tragedy, many are statistics". Take heed.
