Sunday, March 1 J.J. Ruscella, founder and director of the Immersive Learning Lab at Shenandoah University, introduces attendees to what is for many of us
Phil’s at it again, with songs (sung by the Founding Fathers), information about Russian election interference, deforestation, alternative burial options, how to get a pardon from rump (disgustingly simple), California’s answer to homelessness, what rump’s administration has done with EPA cleanups, how the rumpublicans have normalized corruption, preparing for the stock market crash (and we all realize that this “booming economy” for some means heartache for many and a huge and growing deficit), prejudice based on the coronavirus outbreak, Greyhound buses and US Customs and Border Protection, Germany’s far-right problem (What is that country going to do about the racism and hate attacks), Indian American’s switching parties (?), and secure voting software in Virginia…and on a lighter note, where the peace symbol originated.
On April 18, 2020, at noon WFCDC will hold an assembled caucus to choose delegates to the district and state Democratic convention. Frederick County has
CHARITY. Yes, it begins at home and extends into the community and beyond.

GUNS. In the political speech, rather than the appropriate State of the Union Address, ‘rump stated that the “illegal immigrants” needed to be controlled to make the nation safer, denounced those he claims are taking away the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, and insisted that he wants to protect children. He also presented an African-American man as an example of someone benefiting from his Opportunity Zone program, although the man had not benefited; he used this man in an effort to show support for a man of color. We recognize ‘rump’s constant falsehoods. Watch the father of a daughter shot at Parkland telling his story in a brief video, and read about the man held as an example of a benefit program, who didn’t benefit.
CONVERSION THERAPY–and OXYMORON! Trying to make homosexuals into heterosexuals, usually using religious education to do it? Believe it or not, Virginia is one of the states considering it, although the health community rejects the practice. Twenty-two states have banned it or in the process of banning it. Perhaps Congress will pass a resolution to end this harmful practice, but let’s keep our eyes on Virginia. Say NO to conversion propoganda!
