I tell myself I put on makeup because I like the way I look with it better than the way I look without it. So, why don't I wear makeup when I am at home by myself? Is it because I don't respect myself? Because I don't think I am important enough to look nice for me? Or, is it, truthfully, because I wear makeup because I don't think other people think I look good enough without it? Sad. When did this happen ? My mother didn't teach me this. Who did ??????

If it is "one's sincerely held religious belief" that one should be able to marry the partner of his/her choice, and the State does not allow one to do this, doesn't that "burden a person's right to the exercise of religion" ??????

I'm just sayin.....

Hoist on their own petards.

Let the lawsuits begin.

I miss those days. Not the violence or the hatred, or any of that part of it, of course. But I do miss the passion. I miss the fire, the vision we had for a world where everyone would be judged for what was inside them, and not what was outside. Where people would talk about their problems and resolve them without guns or bombs. Where no one either asked, cared, or noticed what race you were, or what political party. All that mattered in our perfect world was "human" race and "earth" party. I'm not sure when I (we?) lost that. Abraham, Martin, John, then Robert.....? I grew older? I got tired? I became "The Man" I earlier protested against ?? Like Yogi said, "When you come to a fork in the road, take it." I guess I must have. I sure do miss me.
