I Am A Mental Tourist...My Mind Wanders

I'm grateful to be able to love so many things in life. Food, fashion, event planning, tradition, and the not so traditional. I find the politically incorrect humorous, rather than offensive. I don't really have a filter, speak from the heart, and say what's on my mind regardless of opinion.

I've done many interesting things in my life, most of which I would not tell my children at the ages they are now...perhaps in the future if they ask, or if the circumstances mandate it. As such, fair warning that you may see a few inappropriate posts here, which some may find offensive.

I hope to make this blog interesting, although I've not spent much time on it of late. Ask me anything, and I'll be honest.

Oh yeah..about me... Over 30 (I'll leave it at that), Bay Area Native (Live in Marin), Executive Assistant

What if Daft Punk never breaks up or dies they just hand off their helmets to really amazing musicians that continue making music for them and they just become these immortal beings that no one is really sure who they are anymore they’re just always there

What if this already happened years ago

Seriously…

High School AP History Book Rewrites 2nd Amendment
Textbook version: “The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.”
Actual 2nd Amendment: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Did you catch the sleight of hand?
A militia is a body of citizens enrolled for military service, and called out periodically for drill but serving full time only in emergencies. It’s a common man army of citizens, NOT soldiers. The citizens are called up in emergencies to protect the free State.
The 2nd Amendment says that a militia is necessary to protect a free State, so in order to be able to have a militia, the citizens have a natural right to keep and bear arms and the government cannot infringe on that right.
The textbook version implies that we’re only allowed to keep and bear arms if we’re in a State militia, a clear misrepresentation of the 2nd Amendment.
Your Call to Action:
1. Call Guyer High School and tell the appropriate person something like the following:
"Hello, my name is _______________. I saw that your AP History course has issued a book titled, United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination. In this book, on page 102, the definition provided for the Second Amendment is incorrect and seems to be suggesting that only members of a State Militia are allowed to keep and bear arms. Who made the decision to use this text book? I’d like them to issue a public statement on this book’s attempt to redefine the 2nd Amendment and why they chose to use it. We would also like this issue to be discussed at the next school board meeting. Please include it on the official agenda.”
John H. Guyer High School 7501 Teasley Lane Denton, TX 76210 P: 940-369-1000
2. If you live in the area or if you child attends this school, organize with your neighbors and storm the next school board meeting to demand answers.

3. Inspect your child’s history book and photograph other instances of intentional misrepresentations. Post pictures and blog about these occurrences. Demand your school districts regain control of their curriculum.
4. Share this story with your friends, family, and media connections to raise awareness.

Random fact of the day

fluffmugger:

“Blood is thicker than water”, when used in the context of family over friends, is in fact a wildly incorrect bastardisation.

The true, full quote is “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb,” and refers to relationships forged by choice holding deeper meaning than those of mere biology.

When Marilyn Manson understands the culture and media problem better than most media outlets…you have problems.

Stop giving shooters their 15 minutes of fame.

I love this. Every time I see it, I love it more. People are always so strangely surprised to find that Marilyn Manson is well-spoken and highly educated.
