Welcome to the ReaderRant RoundTable for the Winter of
2020




Yule falls on December 21st this year,
when the sun sets that night,
the longest night of the year will follow,
and then the shortest day!
Yuletide ends when the sun sets
On the shortest day.


Have a happy And Blessed Yule Ya'll!

I propose that we start a ten year campaign of placing personal ethics and responsibility above all. No right shall be granted, no lawsuit shall be litigated, no law shall be passed, no election shall be held, without the honest and forthright consideration of personal responsibility and moral intent.

We’ll call it The Decade of Setting The Ship Of Humanity Aright.

What say ye, fellow citizens?

No. I'm thinking of an end run around mindless politics.

I b'lieve if you asked any politician in DC whether their votes placed personal ethics and responsibility above all other considerations they would each and every one of them swear they did.
Some of them would be lying, but most would not.

One man's ethics and responsibilty is another man's trash...

Of course... I didn’t mean to give the impression that I thought it would be possible. crazy
