The Disrespect of Senator Kamala Harris

The disrespect of Senator Kamala Harris during hearings in recent days reminds us that we are not as civilized a society as some would like to believe. This type of disrespect, especially to someone with such an impressive background, simply wreaks of prejudice and entitlement. If that were not the case, then you would see white male senators and congressmen disrespecting each other. What we see, are male members disrespecting their female counterparts - their equals - and it's time for this to end. There is no human being alive that is not equal to any other human being by divine right. If you are of the Judaeo-Christian system, remember that in Acts 10.34, the writer said that God is no respecter of persons. Just so we're clear, that means that males are not superior, and neither are white people. Acts 10:34-43 King James Version (KJV) 34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons Then again in Galatians...

Beck and Call

No doubt we all run into little mistakes every day. It always seems that when I've had a particularly stressful or even a slightly trying day, that some mistakes stand out more than others. I don't get particularly annoyed by them, but I do wonder why we tend to just accept certain sayings without ever attempting to discover any logic behind them. For instance, all my life I have heard the phrase "beck and call." Being an avid reader, I have known exactly how to spell the "beck and." However, when I was younger, I did prefer to say beckoned, which was the past tense of beck, which is also correctly worded. But, the popular phrase, used correctly today, is typically beck and call. While browsing beck and call, I came across a wonderful image aptly portraying the meaning of the phrase, which also happens to be an album cover, for a great group known as Paul Cook & the Chronicles. Click on the cover to hear some of their music. They're good!
