My Wife's Accomplishments (so far)

I'm so proud of Suzanne. She has accomplished SO MUCH in making the world a better place! Some of the reasons I love her like I do...

1.) When my autistic nephew came to live with us, she not only took upon herself the role of her mother, but she KICKED ASS in making sure he was WELL TAKEN care of. Both by us, and his current situation.

2.) She took it upon HERSELF to advocate for ALL kids in Special Education being taken advantage of in Portland Public Schools, and caused some positive change to occur.

3.) She also advocated and became VERY active in making education meaningful for ALL students in PPS.

4.) She took it upon herself to prove that people who it was decided were unable to read, were IN FACT ABLE to be taught to go from 2nd to 6th grade level in a matter of 1 year.

5.)She has been a leader in speaking out about injustice around racial, economical,and all around EQUITY in the city of Portland for the past 10 years.

6.)She has been a forceful voice in the attempt to end war in the US, and bring peace to the world.

7.) She aint done yet, and I'm the luckiest man in the WORLD!!!

I've been thinking about what does and doesn't make sense in the US and beyond recently. for posterity's sake, I'm gonna write some thoughts here.

When one of your complaints is that you believe your government is unfair, why would you join with them in attempting to make life fair?

If you think that using the words "nigger", "faggot", and "kike" are bad examples of speech, why would you use the word "retard", thinking that's ok?

How could you possibly think that using resources for any reason before ending hunger and homelessness makes sense?

How can you call yourself (and believe) that you are a Christian and suggest that Capitol Punishment is justifiable?

How can Corporations be treated as individual persons without making sure they have personal responsibilities as well?

How can someone be so hypocritical as to believe cronyism sucks when their whole life has been nothing beyond cronyism?

Why is it ok to bleed 99% of Americans and prop up the wealthiest 1%?

How do these people sleep at night???
