People like Pope Francis. He used public transportation when he was a cardinal in his homeland and lived in a small apartment instead of one of those palatial homes a lot of cardinals prefer. After becoming pope we all saw the video of him paying his hotel bill himself, and instead of driving a fancy car he drives an old used car.
Since he was a leader in an armed struggle against a brutal racist regime, how could it happen that a man who was imprisoned for more than a quarter of a century would come to be honored at his funeral by the wealthy of the world who had viewed him as a serious threat to their power?
The answer follows:
Wave those flags! Repeat “Support the Troops” as often as possible! Get your picture taken at memorials on veteran related days! Make sure you have those sales, or go to them to honor the veterans on those holiday Mondays!
It’s the best way to honor the troops.
Just as the oil under the ground is invisible to the onlooker, so are many of the facts about the Keystone XL Pipeline. While the former is naturally so, the latter is by design.
When speaking of the death of Nelson Mandela, Rick Santorum took the opportunity to compare apartheid to the Affordable Care Act while implying that those, like him, who opposed it were equivalent to Nelson Mandela for opposing apartheid laws.
Sorta makes Santorum a better Black man than president Obama.
As we all know, helping people with the use of safety nets like Unemployment and SNAP causes them to become lazy and dependent. And we all know this to be true because someone said it, and it has been repeated by many. And we also know that if it is repeated without challenge, then it just has to be true.
What’s the holiday season without cookies, cakes, candies and other unhealthy treats! Baking holiday goodies is part of the tradition, and a perfect family activity. While I totally believe in a little splurging, there are healthy baking substitutes where no one will know the difference. I’ll skip the tip about substituting black beans and dates in place of chocolate when making brownies! (However, if it sounds appealing, email me and I’ll send you the recipe – my husband loves them!)
