Made this last Tuesday. I call it the Nutty Noise Maker. Kind of a cross between a slide guitar and a resonator guitar. And I don’t even know how to play it.

A cigar box dulcimer I’ve been working on for the last year or so. Finally finished enough to play. Sounds good too.

What an anniversary!

     I want you to read a quote. It’s short so don’t worry about attention span.

Today, as we reflect on the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, we recommit ourselves to the decision’s guiding principle: that every woman should be able to make her own choices about her body and her health. We reaffirm our steadfast commitment to protecting a woman’s access to safe, affordable health care and her constitutional right to privacy, including the right to reproductive freedom. And we resolve to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies, support maternal and child health, and continue to build safe and healthy communities for all our children. Because this is a country where everyone deserves the same freedom and opportunities to fulfill their dreams.

     President Obama said that yesterday (Jan. 22). Now I just want to point out an infuriating and disgusting double standard in his words. “…The right to reproductive freedom,” and “Everyone deserves … freedom and opportunities to fulfill their dreams.

     Mull those over for a bit. Done so soon? Ok. At this very moment you should be so enraged that you can’t see straight. Reproductive freedom is not a “Get Out of Pregnancy Free” card. It is not a license to kill your child because they are inconvenient or get in the way of your dreams. 55 million life goals and dreams have been revoked because of this “guiding principle.” Never mind the deserving part. We are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights, they are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. For all you atheists out there that creator is mom and dad. For everyone else that is God.

     Thus the dichotomy. In the President’s drug-addled brain it somehow makes sense to deprive one person of their RIGHTS in favor of another’s DREAMS. Do we kill toddlers or teens because they are inconvenient? Why not? Is it because you can actually see them? Or just because they were lucky enough to make it past the 3rd trimester? At what point do we call it murder and not reproductive care? He is conveniently forgetting the definition of everyone. Or worse, he is redefining the definition of a person.

     Now if you haven’t tuned out yet I’ll make my point simply. Yesterday the President patted himself on the back with Dreams while trampling a mountain of Rights. Rights given by God, to be revoked by no one. As a Christian he ought to know better.

     This genocide will not go forgotten or unpunished.
