Sadly, the “Body Worlds and the Cycle of Life” exhibit opened last month in Kansas City. Like its predecessor, “Bodies Revealed,” this repackaged exhibit is a macabre display of human beings, young and old.
It is a disgrace that human beings again are put on display for amusement and so-called entertainment. It kind of reminds me of the Roman Colosseum, where life was cheap and death was also displayed for amusement.
If you want to be educated about the human body, take a biology course or go to the library for a book on human anatomy. Don’t participate in the dehumanization of someone’s child, parent or grandparent.
Never miss a local story.
Thankfully, the Roman Catholic bishops of Kansas City and Kansas City, Kan., have again taken a strong stand against this exhibit, describing it as “a kind of human taxidermy that is inconsistent with the dignity due a deceased human body.”
Please heed the voices of the bishops and find a legitimate way to learn about the human body without desecrating the dead.
Well now, New Hampshire has a drug problem. Now America is recognizing we have a drug problem.
Lawmakers are trying to pass bills and addiction centers are being opened because people in the suburbs are dying. The inner cities in America have been suffering from this for decades.
Now, since the drug addiction problem has really hit the suburban areas, it’s a crisis. It’s only when it affects the majority population of America that something gets done.
Sound the alarm, please. We should care about everyone.
White lives, black lives, brown lives, and the beat goes on.
Love for Trump
If Republicans are going to back presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, does that mean they love their party more than the United States and their families?
With all the debate in the Missouri legislature over the so-called “religious freedom” amendment being discriminatory, there is an easy test: Simply remove any reference to “same sex” from the bill so it covers all weddings.
Does it still do what the writers intended?
If not, then it’s discriminatory.
If so, then just remove any reference to “same sex” from the bill and move on.
In the aftermath of the mass shooting in Orlando, Fla., what we get from presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is preening and self-aggrandizement, chest-pumping, conspiracy theories and the total absence of compassion, empathy or ability to relate to another’s suffering.
Perhaps this is explained by the characteristics of a sociopath listed below, first used in 1941 to diagnose sociopathy and still in use today. How many can you find in Trump?
Superficial charm and good intelligence; absence of delusions and other signs of irrational thinking; absence of nervousness or neurotic manifestations; unreliability, untruthfulness and insincerity; lack of remorse and shame; inadequately motivated antisocial behavior; poor judgment and failure to learn by experience; pathologic egocentricity and incapacity for love; general poverty in major affective reactions; specific loss of insight; unresponsiveness in general interpersonal relations; fantastic and uninviting behavior with alcohol and sometimes without; suicide threats rarely carried out; sex life impersonal, trivial and poorly integrated; and failure to follow any life plan.
Thanks to NRA
The Islamic State terrorists should send this to all Republicans in Congress:
Thank you so much for your valuable help in making another massacre on U.S. soil a reality.
Your opponents, those devil Democrats, keep trying to restrict the sale of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. We deeply appreciate the resistance to such legislation that you and your praiseworthy master, the National Rifle Association, have shown.
Yes, there will be another minor, short-lived reaction to the latest killings, but we know we can count on your continued support. Without your steadfast assistance, our work would be much harder.
Sincerely, The Caliphate.
