                                     THIS IS A TEST...
please watch the two videos at the links below then answer this question. Is this;
                            a.  DISGRACEFUL BEHAVIOR
                        or b. BLISSFUL IGNORANCE?

Lately it feels as though we as a country are taking no steps forward and three or four steps back. My human grew up in the 60's, you know all that protesting and hippy stuff...
but here's the thing...a lot of people put forth a lot of effort and got things done! Big things! Like; The Civil Rights Act, The Voting Rights Act and The Open Housing Act. Head Start, Job Corps, The National Endowment for the Arts, Medicaid and Medicare, The Clean Air Act,  the fair immigration law, women's rights... you get the idea.
I look at where we are now and ask myself,,, what have we done lately? Congress hasn't passed much of anything in years at a time when we need to be doing a lot. And some of the things that I thought we had fought hard for and won, seem to be unraveling... and I wonder why.

So take the test and see how you feel when you are done...

The first video is long! I admit it...but I swear it's worth watching all 16 minutes...
the second one is about 4 minutes. They are very different and both very compelling...

Video 1;

Video 2;

So what do you think? Is it a or b? Disgraceful behavior or blissful ignorance?
Then ask yourself, what do we do about it?

This has been a message from you're conscience.


Noodle and crew


  1. Well, we know what us cats would do. The humans? That's another story!

  2. Both very touching videos. We saw a documentary on the civil rights movement last weekend. We believe hatred to be wrong and respect for others should be a priority.

  3. I didn't watch the first, but watched the second, the ad.

    REALLY well done. Coincidentally, as I watched that today, it's National Aboriginal Day in Canada. Same issues for too many First Nations People, no matter the country.

    I don't have an interest in basketball, don't follow it, though of course am familiar with the team name. So does this push have legs, as it were?
