How to be more beautiful

Do you wish you were more beautiful?  What would the results be?  Would you get the attention or love you really want?  Here is Ana who wrote a poem about beauty and captures the essence of true beauty.  A friend of mine saw her perform it at a poetry reading and passed it one when Ana posted it to Youtube.

Savvy makes another top 100!!

I just got this email today!  It's a few days old, but it made me very happy to hear some good news about my blog.  Please check out some of the other noteworthy blogs which also made the Top 100!!

They have some really great dating advice on their blog and some discounts to dating websites.  I only worry a little bit about their selections of movies for singles.  Hmmm.  Some are not exactly known for espousing Christian values.  But I'd be lying if I said I hadn't watched them and enjoyed them.

Dear Savvy Single Christian,

Why gun nuts should love Malcolm X and the Black Panthers.

In my last post, I talked about John Lewis whose philosophy was "Love is much stronger than hate."  That philosophy wasn't good enough for Malcolm X who preached a philosophy of equality by any means necessary.  It was in 1964 that he made his famed speech "The Ballot or the Bullet"

If we don't do something real soon, I think you'll have to agree that we're going to be forced either to use the ballot or the bullet. It's one or the other in 1964. It isn't that time is running out -- time has run out!
1964 threatens to be the most explosive year America has ever witnessed. The most explosive year. Why? It's also a political year. It's the year when all of the white politicians will be back in the so-called Negro community jiving you and me for some votes. The year when all of the white political crooks will be right back in your and my community with their false promises, building up our hopes for a letdown, with their trickery and their treachery, with their false promises which they don't intend to keep. As they nourish these dissatisfactions, it can only lead to one thing, an explosion; and now we have the type of black man on the scene in America today -- I'm sorry, Brother Lomax -- who just doesn't intend to turn the other cheek any longer...

So it's time in 1964 to wake up. And when you see them coming up with that kind of conspiracy, let them know your eyes are open. And let them know you -- something else that's wide open too. It's got to be the ballot or the bullet. The ballot or the bullet. If you're afraid to use an expression like that, you should get on out of the country; you should get back in the cotton patch; you should get back in the alley...
No, if you never see me another time in your life, if I die in the morning, I'll die saying one thing: the ballot or the bullet, the ballot or the bullet.

John Lewis to Rush Limbaugh "Love is much stronger than hate"

Rush Limbaugh, the Malcolm X sympathizer...
Malcolm X, cover of Ebony.

It comes as no surprise that  Rush Limbaugh stuck his foot in his mouth again, this time totally missing the point about the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s by wondering if John Lewis would have had his skull fractured had he been packing a gun.

If Malcom X had been on the bridge marching to Selma, Alabama in protest of not being able to register to vote, Malcolm X would have been armed and dangerous along with members of the Black Panthers.  It was Malcolm X who gave the famous "The Ballot or the Bullet" speech.  It was Malcolm X who appeared holding an M1 carbine on the cover of Ebony Magazine in 1964.  He referred to Martin Luther King, Jr. as "an Uncle Tom," or a "stooge."   Meanwhile MLK preached "I have a dream" in which he hoped all God's children would join hands and sing "free at last" together.  What fluff!!

Millionaire Matchmaker has her work cut out for her with this one!

I'm so glad I have a sweetheart.  This is what's out there waiting for some of you.  For starters he has looks, money and a big house.  And then he only talked about himself, his money, his house, his cars, his sex drive, his penis, his multiple divorces, and how no woman measures up.  Sounds like a self-absorbed douche!

If you are single instead of with a man like this, please count your lucky stars and praise the Lord!

The Millionaire Matchmaker is a bit of a piece of work herself, but that's another story.

Heroine of Japanese women's rights passes away

Beate Sirota Gordon

You might think you aren't a feminist or that Christianity and feminism have nothing to do with each other.  I disagree.  Feminism can take many forms.  In Japan circa 1945, women were still treated as property to be bought and sold.  They had virtually no rights at all - they could not vote, inherit or buy property.  Beate Gordon was a part of changing Japanese history at the tender age of 22 by writing women's basic rights into the Japanese constitution.

What made her special?  She was one of only a handful of people serving the United States who spoke fluent Japanese.  She spent some time living in Japan with her parents.  Her father was a renowned concert pianist and music teacher.  She left Japan to study at Mills College in Oakland, CA where she majored in modern languages.  She returned to Japan by securing a job as an interpreter for General McArthur, desperate to find her parents.  She married in 1947!  Wow.  She wrote an auto-biography titled "The Only Woman In The Room."  She recently passed away, just six months after her husband of many years. Check out this article about her.

Chemtrails vs. Contrails: Urban Myths 101

Jet contrails over Los Angeles
Since this blog is, in part, about being savvy to the world around you, I thought I'd take a moment to go Snopes on y'all!  For those who don't know about it, www.Snopes.com is a great website where they regularly debunk myths, explain urban legends, and investigate conspiracy theories.  Well, this business of chemtrails is the same kind of thing.
