thinking about injustice

Injustice - Bukowski

Charles Bukowski has long been one of my favorite poets. He is much to rough for many, but there’s an edge and grittiness of reality to his work that appeals to me. This quote comes from one of his novels.

This statement makes me wonder. How many of you agree with it? Is Bukowski right in his assertion that most of us don’t think about injustice unless it’s personal? Let me know what you think.

Protesting Injustice

Image may contain: 3 people, text

Something t.he Church should be doing… basic morality calls for each of us to stand up on behalf of the poor, hungry, outcast, marginalized and mistreated. The protesting NFL players are using their highly visible platform to demonstrate to all the rest of us that we have no excuse not to get involved in ending injustice.

stand up and speak out

thank you Will...Lets try this..... William Faulkner

I’ve spent the majority of my life working to end hunger. I know from personal experience that by working together we can change the world. It starts with speaking up for those who cannot be heard and standing up for those who cannot be seen.

Faulkner says it far better than I can. Read his quote again. But,  achieving a world of peace and justice, a world where honesty, truth and compassion holds sway, is possible. We can achieve a world where caring trumps greed, lying, and hatred.

I want that world. Let’s stand up and speak out, and let us not be afraid to continue speaking out until we transform our world into a place where love truly trumps fear and hatred.

The GOP Tax Plan Illustrated

Sometimes it can be difficult to get our heads around the massive injustice of the GOP tax plan. The numbers are staggering, and the sheer immorality of the Republican leaders is beyond comprehension.

The illustration above is an attempt to give a graphic picture of the reality of what’s going down. #BLOTUS and his Republican cohorts are desperate for a win, and they are obligated to pay back their mega donors. This tax bill will do both while most of us will suffer the consequences.

Every concerned/outraged citizen needs to contact their representatives and shout/scream “NO.” And we need to do it now.

truly offensive

Individualism

There are things that truly offend me. Poverty, war and greed are but three. Injustice is another one that makes the list, as does lying, corrupt leaders.

Recognize the poster child for greed? He, and (everything he stands for) also offends me.

ramming through the “wealthcare” bill

This isn’t democracy at work…it is unadulterated greed;  partisan politics working to benefit the wealthy, with no pretense of helping those in our society with the greatest need. Every senator voting for this bill is sending a clear and unambiguous one-finger salute to the vast majority of our nation.
