Kim Davis Is Not A Martyr

Kim Davis is the Rowan county clerk from Kentucky who refuses  to issue marriage licenses after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled to recognize gay marriages. There were others who  sought clarification from the courts about that ruling. Kim Davis challenged the court's order for her to resume issuing marriage licenses. Finally, a federal judge ordered her jailed for contempt of court when she still refuses to follow the court. 
No doubt, Kim Davis is standing firm on her principles. 
But she's not a martyr. Nobody is persecuting her or people standing up for their principles. She has a position, an elected position. Those who put her in that position wants her to do her job. She has injected her personal religious beliefs into her job. and worse, she refuses to  do her job. 
When ordinary workers do their jobs poorly, they get fired. When  elected officials don't do their jobs, they get impeached. That will  cost taxpayers delay and money. For the couples who wanted to get marr…

Hi Reese
I don't know what got updated, what package in Fedora was patched or  fixed but Evolution is *not* crashing  when I open users-request* emails from the fedora forum anymore.  I got 5 of 5 from them just today and they did not crash Evolution mail. Good job. --

Cutting Down Trees

The neighbors are cutting branches off their tree. A couple who lived at least fifty years are trying with ladder and rope to climb and trim their tree. The man  climbed twenty feet and is shouting instructions to his wife down on the ground. I'm next door well next yard and listening to my collection of BestEverAlbums.  Every now and then, words would come raining down, loud and unclear. I think  they were in German, I'm not sure. 

Some words speak for themselves, some I just guess the meaning from  context. He wasn't angry just loud. 

He tied this rubber hose up twenty feet to the branch and somebody is  tugging at the end on the ground. I guess she's his wife. He's up the tree with a saw. An hour later, the words are getting desperate and futile. The tree would not give away its branch. The morning goes to noon now and the midday  temperature moves to 32 degrees. I'm sweating in the shade. 
He is loud again. The sun goes full bore and the branch creeks read…

Iglesia Ni Cristo, EDSA and Justice

Politicians are always willing to buy votes. They can do it with cash or the expression of their opinions. Obviously they would rather express and part with their opinions since they love their cash more. 
Religions have their hands all over politics. Kings were heads of churches and Popes  anoint Kings if you remember history. Last week, the Iglesia Ni Cristo, occupied EDSA and stopped traffic for hours. They have a permit given them by the city of Mandaluyong signed by Mayor Abalos. Filipinos who use this highway were angered and took to the social media. The Iglesia Ni Cristo wants the investigation by the Department of Justice to stop. This investigation started with an alleged detention and kidnapping of members of Iglesia Ni Cristo by its leader. Secretary Leila de Lima rightfully, investigates any  crime reported by citizens of this country. 
Should government keep its distance from matters of faith as the Iglesia Ni Cristo wants it to do? Did the leader of Iglesia Ni Cristo illegally deta…
