Good Morning Friends & Digital Neighbors! Happy Wednesday Supporters, Members and Visitors! Back to Star Trek - thanks for the comments about the the strategic planning process of the Archdiocese. I will give updates from time to time as I hear developments.
Racism - today's favorite stigma and potentially greatest non-violent sin of the public gospel. CRT and the crusaders of disadvantage and un-privilege are constantly complaining about the inescapable unfairness of life, and they have somehow found a solution - the cocktail of guilt, cultural revisionism and neo-bigotry. All will be better when proper atonement has been achieved, please note that pale males may be incapable of proper atonement short of unconditional surrender and silent acquiesce to New Think and Group-Feel. Don't worry ladies - after feminism is finished with you, your sanity will also be fractured. People of Color will only trend until the complexion wars transition into constant grievance-thinking and the new caste system is mandated. PROGRESS!!
Star Trek - A united humanity but not a sugar coated future. The universe is a vast place of exploration but also not a friendly place. While the Federation wants to meet other cultures in peace, it is known that other cultures are expansionists and aggressive. The Prime Directive protects cultures that are not as advanced in technology and prevent humanity from imposing their mores on other cultures. Star Ships protect the Federation from cultures that would seek to conquer others. Vulcans, Klingons, Romulans and other races were introduced to us in the Original Series and expanded upon in The Next Generation and subsequent series. I enjoyed the exploration of all of those cultures. Borgs, Cardassians, Ferengi and so many other races and cultures added to the mix made it such a great universe. In the end the writers of Trek were always exploring humanity - what makes us - us.
One of my favorite episodes in all of Star Trek. It seems so fitting for the current chapter of Western Civilization. Happy Wednesday Friends!

Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate. I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge.

The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
