Black Lives Matter v. All Lives Matter

I’ve often heard the response. “All Lives Matter,” when someone says, “Black Lives Matter.”

The best analogy I’ve heard is about cancer and disease. People wear pink ribbons and fundraise to show their support for the fight against breast cancer but no one says, “Hey, all cancers matter!” When Jerry Lewis did his muscular dystrophy fundraisers, people didn’t say, “Hey, all diseases matter!” If your response to Black Lives Matter is that All Lives Matter then it just seems insensitive to the people trying to bring attention/support to the disproportionate inequality some Blacks feel.

Much like you wouldn’t go to a breast cancer fundraiser and respond with all cancers matter, not just breast cancer. No one is claiming that all lives don’t matter or all other forms of cancer and disease don’t matter.  Just this their way of bringing attention and trying to gather support for their particular issue.

If you haven’t read the article in the Indystar about Marion County Judges paying a fee to receive the endorsement of their party then click here.  If you do read it, please keep in mind that not all candidates that run for judicial office agree to pay that fee. 

I want to vote for judicial candidate that is more concerned about earning the endorsement of the People not paying the Party. Dave Hennessy is just that type of candidate and he’s got my vote! I hope he has yours.

ObamaCare and Private Business

I recently found out that private businesses (CGI, Serco and Equifax, among others) built the federal health cafe exchange website. So, what is all the hoopla about the government building a website that doesn’t work when it fact it was built by private business?

Ex-State Trooper, David Camm, Not Guilty of Murdering His Family


After thirteen years and three jury trials, David Camm was found not guilty!  I have no clue on whether he did the crime or not but the State of Indiana’s case seemed weak.  I think the verdict was appropriate giving the information that was released about the case. To read more about it, click

1. Ken Blackwell: Cutting Food Stamps, Oh So Christian

Obviously, the adjective “Christian” has gone through a lot of permutations since Jesus died. Now, apparently Christian means purposely not helping people who are down-and-out. That’s the interpretation that Family Research Council fellow Ken Blackwell was going with when he said this week that “nothing is more Christian” than the massive ($40 billion) cuts to food stamps passed last week by House Republicans.

Apparently though, the Pope has not heard about this newfangled kind of Christianity. Pope Francis broke with Vatican tradition recently to remind his flock that money—and the preoccupation with gay marriage—has led them astray, and helping the less fortunate is very much a Christian value.

But no…

Day 20: Fell Short

I didn’t get to make the goals for the day because of lack of planning but I’ve been doing pretty good this month.  Only the second day this month that I didn’t accomplish my task for the day.  I will try and do better on day 21.
