Wild West: hidden awesome people

01/25/2017

I was just watching the latest episode of NBC’s Timeless, which features Bass Reeves, a historical figure I had never heard of before.  I was intrigued and upon a little internet digging, this man, and Grant Johnson, were pretty amazing.  They have to make a movie about Bass Reeves. Bass Reeves’ wikipedia Bass Reeves (catalystdc.com) […]

Action for the Day

01/25/2017

Latest updates (5/06/17) . ——————————————————————————————————————— Given everything about the Trump administration, we all have to do more than we have been doing.  How can we turn anger, frustration, and despair into progress; how can we turn a march into a movement, as protestors were saying?  So I decided to start an action of the day […]

LGBT rights and discrimination

11/21/2016

Update: 12/9/16, links   As I figured, it’s already happening.  No, Trump nor Pence caused anti-LGBT discrimination.  Just as they didn’t create racism.  But they threw/continue to throw fuel on the fire, using fear and bigotry to obtain and maintain votes and power.  I would like to live in a world where racism, bigotry, rape, […]
