Can you shed one tear for them?

A horrible thing happened the other day, Notre Dame burned. Due to a bit of luck and the skill and bravery of the emergency crews in Paris, it looks as if the main structure of the building is intact.

Notre Dame has been around since the middle of the 13th century and truly it is a treasure for the citizens of the world. The cleanup of this disaster has not even begun and already it has been promised to be rebuilt within 5 years, at the last report, 700million euro has been raised to make this happen.  Great swaths of the earths population is in shock and crying over this tragedy.

Did you cry one tear when you heard that the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem burned? Have you even heard of this? The third most holy site in Islam was on fire the same time that Notre Dame burned. Will you shed one tear for the anguish the Islamic people are feeling? Will you go to the mosque in your home town and make a donation to help them rebuild?  Will the Pope say a prayer for them, will  he open the Vatican coffers to assist in the repairs?

So many horrible things that happen and yet only one thing is talked about, only one thing does a tear get shed for – a building.

Have you heard about the Magdalene Laundries of Ireland? A place where the “bad girls” were sent to, to wash clothes for the upper crusts of the Catholic Church. From the 1800’s up until almost 2000, women were enslaved and made to wash clothes. From the reading I have done, no one really can put a number on how many women this was done to.

Can you shed one tear for them?

Here in North America, there has been a systematic genocide happening since the first European set foot here. The indigenous people of North America have under the heel of the settlers for hundreds years. Disease ravaged them, they were hunted down and slaughtered  for sport. They were pushed off of their lands, corralled into places where they can barely eek out a living and now even those places that we have said they can live in are being taken. Pipelines cutting across burial ground, over water sheds and all of this being done by those who have said that the natives are “permitted to be there”. When those who are left resist peacefully, the army is brought in to break them down.

Can you shed one tear for them?

List list of groups of people that have been oppressed, attacked , removed…….. is longer than can be listed

Can you shed one tear for them?

When it is your turn to be down trodden, who will shed a tear for you?

Today is the day

Today is the day that Donald Trump becomes President of the United States.

Today is the day that the most ill equipped person to ever sit in the oval office has been given the power to say the word and have the nuclear beast unleashed upon the world. Well done to those who permitted this to happen.

“Make America Great Again” – how many of you have a hat with this written on it? How many of you have looked at the tag inside that says “Made in China”

To every lady who voted for Trump – get yourselves lined up so you can get assaulted. It is just like that, he is famous so he can grab your pussy whenever he likes.

To all the blue collar workers out there, the ones who are struggling to find work, struggling to pay your bills, just plain struggling to get by… Trump doesn’t know you. He doesn’t know your story and he just doesn’t care. You are nothing to him.

To all the small business folks out there. Chapter 11 – 4 times. ‘Nuf said

To all you folks who demanded to see Mr Obama’s birth certificate. He produced it and still you whined. Donald refused to produce his income tax report. When he finally did it turns out that he lost so much money one year that he hasn’t had to pay taxes in over a decade.

To all of you who need him to be tough and strong. Here is a man who says he is tough, he will take on ISIS and wipe them out. Donald has a crybaby meltdown every time Saturday Night Live does a new episode. What happens now that he can push the big red button?

The late Mr Carlin once said something to the effect of – stop with your bullshit of trying to save the planet, it is us who are going away. Humanity is just a minor irritation and when she is ready, mother earth is going to shake us off.

To those of you who made this happen, on your heads does the coming ruin lie.
