Winning isn't everything, sometimes it is enough just knowing you could have won if you had tried a little harder... (just kidding) Smile

Religion is not necessary to be moral and just, a few good role models can suffice. rr

Teachers test, students are tested. Thinkers observe. Philosophers wonder.

@RexRed,
knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit

wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad

philosophy is wondering if that means ketchup is a smoothie

@glitterbag,
Tomato works well in a fruit salad if you add fresh cilantro. It is called salsa.

Best to you GB. Smile

@glitterbag,
My wife make smoothie for me, and uses frozen berries and a banana.
Since our son is home visiting from Austin, we went to Black Angus Steakhouse last night for dinner, and I had their strawberry lemonade. Nice.

A Little More Like You

I don't believe in your God
Or your hateful religion
I am not at odds with science
Or evolution

I do not think
That rape is ever okay
And I think it is perfectly fine
To be bi, trans, lesbian or gay

I know how to compromise
When I am being unfair
I know how to cool down
When I forget to care

This does not mean
I'm like you, a racist
A little more like you?
I will forever resist

I believe in protecting the earth
By regulating our consumption
Of dirty fuels
And greedy capitalistic compunction

You hate helping the poor
And a woman's right to choose?
I don't ever want to become
A little more like you

This is not about bending
To another person's view
It is about loving others
So I never become like you

If being like you means
I need to shun the immigrant
I would rather fight for liberty
Than give you my consent

Blinded by profit
It distorts the view
More is never enough
And corrupts what we do

It is not about politics
It is about what is right
So becoming a little more like you
I must with conviction fight

You fill your mind
With so many lies and hate
I will never allow myself
To suffer a similar fate

My eyes are open
Vigilant and true
So I never ever become
A little more like you
