  1. What I love, just love, is men weighing in tell g women what to do with their bodies.

    ‘We know best sweetie, just shut up, and do as we decide,’ etc etc

    I had no idea, before I started blogging some years ago of the entrenched religious views held by so many politicians.

    Religious views are fine for the individual. But not when they impact on people who don’t share those views.

    It’s a good graphic. Trouble is, they would argue the opposite …

    It is a future chicken, a future tree, a person, I think the silkworm one isn’t quite the same, but still, it’s thoughtful.

    1. The extent to which people will go to get their personal religious beliefs made into laws for everyone constantly amazes and horrifies me. It’s so hypocritical to espouse “do unto others” and then try to force onerous, intrusive religious edicts on everyone else. Not to mention that little thing called the Constitution and the politicians’ oath of office that says they will support and defend it.

  2. You’ve had campaigns worse/even longer than us.
    I voted already. Now just hitting mute with TV ads…both sides warped info misrepresentations/ half truths/ implied “facts”. Both hitting all the ugly emotional knee-jerk phrases and images. UGH.
    Some people just can’t stop. No use arguing with them – they don’t listen or think.

    1. I’m sick, sick, sick of all of them. I’ll be so relieved when it’s all over (except I have a sinking feeling about how it’s going to turn out). I voted at least a week ago. Mail-in ballot. So nice compared to systems I’ve endured in the past.

      Hey, cheer up. The Christmas commercials have started!

  3. If we submit everything to reason our religion will be left with nothing mysterious or supernatural. If we offend the principles of reason our religion will be absurd and ridiculous . . . There are two equally dangerous extremes: to exclude reason, to admit nothing but reason.
    ― Blaise Pascal

... and that's my two cents
