I think it was the summer of 1994 - there are two years that most commonly come up in the records (for high temps) out there, 1989 and 1994 - where the overnight lows often did not get below 90 in Tucson. I simply could not believe it.

Yes, exactly!
 
Over the past few weeks, I've seen many of my friends post about uncircling or “unfriending” people who disagree with them on gay marriage or the Confederate flag. So I thought it might be time to dust off this post I wrote before the 2012 election and re-publish it to apply to our current state of incivility. Please to enjoy.

THOUGHTS ON POLITICS AND FRIENDSHIP

As we approach another election, I’d like to make a request to all my friends — especially those who are politically active. And I write the following with the admission that I’m just as apt to partisanship as the next guy.
 
Let’s all take a step back and breathe. Let’s not allow politics to get in the way of “real life.”
 
Don’t be so quick to dismiss someone just because they vote for a certain political party. Just because someone doesn’t share your political affiliation, that person isn’t automatically a villain.
 
Your friend’s worth isn’t determined by whether they vote for a candidate with a “D” or an “R” beside their name. Whether someone chooses the Democrat Party or Republican party doesn’t make that person good or bad. If this person is your friend, they’re your friend for a reason. Stay focused on that rather than something posted on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.
 
Neither political party holds the high ground. For every example you can cite, the other side can likely return the volley.
 
Similar to that is this: Don’t fall for agitprop which is promulgated on websites, blogs, emails, radio and TV broadcasts without first vetting it for yourself. Look at both sides and do your homework before making up your mind. You do yourself a disservice by simply regurgitating talking points which have been disseminated by someone with a political agenda. I’ve fallen for this too many times to mention, and I’ll wager you have, too. Crow doesn’t taste very good. And we’re going to be hip-deep in it before this election is over.
 
Reasonable people can differ on issues. We can, and should, discuss ideas on their merits. And after all sides have had their say, it’s entirely possible that nobody’s mind has been changed. That’s fine. But even in dissent, we shouldn’t allow ourselves to be polarized and divided. That simply serves to make us easier to control as a populace, and we surrender our power as We The People when we are so easily herded into groups.
 
Disagreeing over  a social or economic issue is no reason to sever a relationship. If your opinions are so fragile that they can’t tolerate the views of someone else, you’ve got some bigger issues to examine within yourself.
 
 Just my $.02, your mileage may vary.

That escalated quickly. I hate lows in the upper 80's.

Yup. Urban Island Effect - lots of concrete and asphalt. And a valley. I remember that Tucson supposedly used to only have highs in the upper 90's before the population boom. Or so we were told. But Phoenix ... and those lawns -> humidity. But it certainly clears out the snowbirds.

And a little child will lead them.
The past 40 years, America has been plagued with one of the biggest death-tolls of all time. 40 years coupled with 56 million Americans killed by abortion. It claims over a million lives a year. That translates to roughly a

I have found this to be quite true recently (try expressing even the slightest bit of doubt about the wisdom of the current vaccine schedule for children and let me know how that turns out for you) and I'm sorry to say that I've been guilty of it myself a time or two.

VACCINES: How Pets May Lead The Way
Key points:
>Start later
>Use titer testing to determine need
>Individualized care “Care should be individualized for each pet,” Welborn says. “The days of treating all dogs and cats the same are gone.”
>Single rather than combo vaccines “Giving more vaccinations increases the likelihood of side effects,” Welborn says. “Separating vaccinations allows the veterinarian to determine which vaccine caused a side effect if one occurs.”

Happiness and Forgiveness are decisions that we make, not emotions that we feel. 😊
Introduction
I'm a ♥ happily married ♥ woman with oodles of kids (a blessing every one) and I talk a lot about my faith, my family, and politics. I'm a bit of a fan-girl when it comes to Android and I pretty much love all things Google.

 - If any of those things make you cringe, do yourself and your blood pressure a favor and don't circle me. It's okay, I'll never know.

‼ » If I have not  circled you, you will not  be able to comment on my posts. « ‼

Things that interest me:
  • Android
  • Christian life
  • Politics (Conservative Libertarian)
  • Gadgets and techno toys
  • Google
  • Home schooling
  • Milton Friedman economics
  • Sci-fi & Fantasy (Game of Thrones, LOTR, Matrix, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica)
  • Whole foods, Organic, Low carb, Paleo/Primal
  • X-Box
  • Zombies
  • (I won't mention the sparkly vampires; it was a phase that I went through and I'm working on recovery)
My favorite quotes at the moment:

“For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn?”― Mr. Bennett, Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen

"Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment." - Benjamin Franklin 

"Not my circus, not my monkeys." - Polish proverb
