Safe and sound

by Joey deVilla on October 10, 2018

The images from the Florida panhandle are coming in, and they’re frightening. Hurricane Michael is now a category 4 storm (meaning winds in excess of 150 mph / 250 km/h) and it could be devastating. To my friends in those parts, stay safe!

I’ve had friends and family checking in on me, and this part is for their benefit. I’m in Tampa, a good distance away from the storm, and all we’ve got are clouds and some wind. Here’s a photo of me just outside the office:

We’re probably going to get some rain — it hasn’t fallen here yet — and some gusts of wind, but it shouldn’t get any worse than that in the Tampa area.

I plan to stay indoors, but this is Florida, and I know that there’s at least one guy who’ll probably head right into the storm zone, put on some Slayer, and headbang against the hurricane:

The laws have changed

In light of a certain recent terrible judicial appointment, this Doonesbury comic from April seems more appropriate than ever.

If you think that Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau is stretching the truth a little, here’s a clip of Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council giving Trump a “mulligan” on his affair with Stormy Daniels…

…and of course they’re pleased to see Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court Justice. He is a means to an end.

A good number of Evangelicals know that Trump has faults, but see him as a tool provided by God. I think they’re half right:

A major reason why Evangelicals are acting increasingly like a political party and less like a group of people who follow the principles of Jesus is that they fear that America is becoming more like the one depicted in the Coke commercial from the 2017 Super Bowl (which made some people lose their minds):

Here’s a little more on the topic:

And the damage that Evangelicals bring may not be limited to the U.S.. It could happen in Brazil soon:

It’s Thanksgiving in Canada!

It’s the second Monday in October, which means it’s Thanksgiving Day in Canada! While I’m no longer living in Canada, I’m still a citizen, and I’m thankful for where I am, what I get to do, and whom I get to be with.

Most Canadians had their big Thanksgiving meal over the weekend, and have today off to relax and digest. Have a good one, fellow Canucks!

If you’d like to find out more about Thanksgiving in Canada, these videos should explain it well:
