WHAT DO WE WANT??
Research based science
WHEN DO WE WANT IT?
After peer review!
That chant rang out today from all over the U.S and other countries. A Mach for Science on Earth Day 2017.
A March for facts…..FACTS!!!!
I come in here and write about , well, frankly, me. MY life, My sobriety, My grief, MY whatever-I’m-feeling-that-day…there has been an ongoing discussion in my head about what I even want this blog to be.
Let’s not worry that the discussion has been going on since I started about 6-ish years ago, that’s an unimportant fact.
But there are important facts. Facts are important, whether we happen to like them or not.
And I had a moment today looking at my instagram , that horrible moment when I realized people were marching for FACTS! Because they have no meaning these days, do they? I mean, to me they do, probably to most of you too. But in the bigger picture, they don’t . We have elected a shyster to the presidency of the United States, and he brings alone a circus van full of buffoons and racists, climate deniers and woman-haters, treasonous collaborators and family advisors and….
I am not prepared to go on and on. I doubt anyone either wants or needs me to, and I don’t need to. The FACTS speak for themselves, and there are many trump supporters who are starting (just now, really..?) to see that they may have made a tiny little error in judgement in supporting him and his cronies.
I just want to underline the basic premise that drew me to my blog tonight; that has me writing a quick rant, that has me baffled and horrified…today. I have been baffled and horrified daily, but today it’s this…
There was a March FOR Science today in the United States of America.
How have we come to this? And, seriously, what the fuck are we gonna do about it.
*It’s late enough in the day that I could post a zillion pictures from marches all over the U.S and the World…but you can look at them for yourselves. We’re adults here. However, I couldn’t resist one song….
