‘Happy’ Good Friday

Inhale Peace; Exhale Love. Joy will Follow! - RUELHA

We call it good, because He hung on that wood. Had He not, In damnation we'd be caught. We call it good, like we rightly should. Yes, we mourn the death, of His final earthly breath. But, we call it good. And this is always misunderstood. With people wishing me, 'Happy Good Friday', you see. They ask me, what's the menu? What's special at your venue? Why aren't you all decked? Why no jewellery in your neck? What can I say? Christ died today. It's a day of mourning. But it's good, though disconcerting. It is good that He died. And paid for me that price. The eternal love safrifice. And that is why it's nice. It's a day of fast and abstinence. Maybe even do some penance. Only after a seed falls and dies. From within it, springs forth life. That is why Good Friday is good. Because in…

We are always performing whether for our parents, our teachers, our spouses, our children. We fear exposing our true selves, and would rather live in a state of denial. We are all creators in this Universe so instead of living according to the edicts of others let us all, without fear bring to light and to life our gifts to this Earth.

American Airlines, Dell oppose efforts to restrict voting in Texas | The Texas Tribune

Corporate giants American Airlines and Dell Technologies on Thursday became the first business heavyweights to lend their opposition to Republicans’ legislative proposals to further restrict voting in Texas. American Airlines took specific aim at Senate Bill 7, which would impose sweeping restrictions that take particular aim at local efforts meant to make it easier to vote — like extended early voting hours. Senate Republicans advanced that measure in a 2 a.m. vote Thursday. “Earlier this morning, the Texas State Senate passed legislation with provisions that limit voting access. To make American’s stance clear: We are strongly opposed to this bill and others like it,” the company said in a statement. Dell Technologies CEO Michael Dell declared his company’s opposition to House Bill 6, another voting proposal, in a Twitter post. That legislation would prohibit local election officials from proactively sending out applications for mail-in ballots and impose new rules for people assisting voters to fill out their ballots. The House Elections Committee on Thursday was hearing public testimony on the proposal that was expected to continue into the night.

Lao Government Troops Launch New Assault Against Hmong at Phou Bia Mountain — Radio Free Asia (Me: Laotian ethnic cleansing of Hmong from their homeland for profit)

Lao government troops have launched a new campaign of attacks against groups of ethnic Hmong living in forests near Phou Bia Mountain in an effort to remove them from areas targeted for development and foreign investment schemes, rights group and Hmong sources say.

The new push against the Hmong—who fought under U.S. advisors against communist forces during the Vietnam War—follows the March 14 publication of an order by authorities in Xaysomboun province barring access by civilians to the forests near Phou Bia, the highest mountain in Laos, an international NGO said at the weekend.

Supreme Court Lets FCC Relax Limits On Media Ownership – Slashdot (Me: Supremes supporting monopoly and oligopolies – forget free speech)

The Supreme Court unanimously ruled on Thursday that the Federal Communications Commission could relax rules limiting the number of newspapers, radio stations and television stations that a single entity may own in a given market. The decision is likely to prompt further consolidation among broadcast outlets, some of which say they need more freedom to address competition from internet and cable companies. Critics fear that media consolidation will limit the perspectives available to viewers. Source: Supreme Court Lets FCC Relax Limits On Media Ownership – Slashdot
