A Personal Project of Mine Right Now That I Need Your Help With, Please

My personal project right now is to get the Governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam removed from office. You are probably familiar with him because of the recent photo of him, the black face and KKK one. Even though painting your face or wearing a KKK outfit is appalling enough, his views on abortion are criminal.

In case the photo has overshadowed his views on abortion, then let me give you a quick run down. He has come out publicly and announced that he is for doing abortions after the mother has delivered the baby. You heard right, after the newborn has been brought into this world, he wants people to have the right to abort that baby. He said his words were taken out of context but I sincerely don’t believe that nor do others.

I can’t understand the thinking of this man or should I say monster. Anyone wanting to kill a newborn is a  monster in my book. But he said the mother would have the right to have the baby revived if need be. Then they would take the baby, put it in a little bassinet, make it as comfortable as possible, while they decide whether or not this child should live. He said this would only come up if the child had some deformity or something that would prevent the child from having the quality of life it deserved. To me, this is playing God. Who gives any doctor the right to decide if the newborn has a right to live or die? Doesn’t that go against the Oath they took when they became doctors. The one that stated they would heal, protect and do everything possible to preserve life. Perhaps the doctors have forgotten that Oath.

There are too many people in this country that are wanting to adopt babies. Why would you terminate a life whether it is deformed or not. That baby has the right to live just like the rest of us. Put him/her up for adoption. Let a loving family take that baby, raise it and give it the best quality of life available. You just don’t take a life and discard it so easily. It is killing.  I should add he has never come right out and said how the baby would be killed. Knocking it in the head with a hammer the way they do cows, ringing its’ neck like a chicken, sounds cruel doesn’t it. Well, murdering a new born child is cruel. To think an elected official thinks this way is unbelievable, more over, he should not be in an office which can make the laws that govern our lives.

If this governor is permitted to get this legislation passed, then others will follow suit. He has to be removed from office and we have to make it very plain, we will not tolerate the killing of newborn babies in this country.

I have provided a link below that goes straight to the Governor’s Office of Virginia. I have asked my site to write him a note. You can mention the black face/KKK photo, if you like. But I would like for you to place a special emphasis on his views about abortion. We cannot permit this to happen in our country. If it does, what next? The baby has brown eyes and I wanted a blue eye baby, so kill it. This one proposal the monster is suggesting can sky-rocket out of control. We have to stop him and the only way we can do this is by forcing him to resign.

I would ask that you follow the link below and write to the Governor’s Office of Virginia. Make sure you tell him that we will not tolerate the killing of newborn babies in this country. Make your voice heard today and drop him a note.

Thank you,

Lady of the Abyss

A Thought for Today

Many of you know about the recent shut down of the USA Government, part of that shut down included the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Since only parts of the USA government have been recalled to work now it is about for 6 weeks we gain face the truth that more Americans can get very ill possibly fatally with the FDA only concentrating it’s few workers in what is considered by the agency as high risk. So while this cartoon may give you a chuckle it is also here to remind you our voices speaking as one to get the government that is supposed to be for the people back on the right track again. Remember to write to your districts congressperson and your state senators demanding the work for all the people in their district and state no matter whether the person voted for them or not is a babe in arms or a person nearing the end of this lifetime. It is time these officials start taking care of our citizens instead of those half-way across the world. Do not get me wrong I believe in helping those that need it in other parts of the world too but remember the old saying, “Charity begins at home.” In this case “home” is the United States of America,

Also, write to your state’s and county elected officials that have the ability to change and/or modify laws. No one in the United States should ever go to bed hungry or without a warm and at least semi-comfortable to lay their head at night, to be able to shelter from bad weather (snow storms, extremely cold or hot temperatures) thunderstorms, etc).

One person’s letter can make a teeny difference but thousands of letters can and should make a big difference in how our elected officials run our country and states. Let our voices be heard from, Alaska, Hawaii, and all 48 contiguous states, as one for the betterment of the country we live in and the people who need help to build or re-build a better life. Are we not the “land of opportunity?”

The Magical Uses of Plants: 23 Sacred Herbs for Health, Prosperity and Spiritual Protection

Caption from picture “herbs can do so much more than just add flavor to foods and improve health. they also have magical uses that can help you expand spirituality and do intensely practical things like create more success, prosperity and protection for negative influences.”

Generally, a plant referred to as an herb possesses some sort of medicinal, culinary, or magical value. Botanists and gardeners sometimes differentiate herbs from other plants by the stem: if the plant has a “woody” stem above the ground, it’s not an herb but a tree or a shrub. According to this definition, mint is an herb, but rosemary is not.

In the magical and spiritual world, however, the term “herb” is used as a catchall for bits of trees, flowers, spices, and all sorts of plants. Herbs thus form a huge portion of the green witch’s practice. Following the herbs, you’ll find some miscellaneous greens that are also useful (though often overlooked). The following list comprises some aromatic, culinary and magical plants and herbs.

1. Allspice (Pimenta officinalis)

Also known as pimento or Jamaica pepper, the dried allspice berry is a common staple in the kitchen spice rack. Called “allspice” because it incorporates flavors such as clove, cinnamon, and pepper, it is a common flavoring for spice cookies. The sweet yet spicy aroma is released when the dried berry is crushed. Allspice berries make wonderful additions to magical herbal blends for money and prosperity and any magic focusing on increasing energy, love, healing, and luck.

Where to Get It: Organic Allspice Powder

2. Angelica (Angelica archangelica)

Also known as archangel or angel’s herb, this fragrant plant has been used throughout the centuries for improving digestion, flavoring wines and liqueurs, and making candy. It is particularly powerful when this magic herb is used for protection and purification.

Where to Get It: Organic Angelica Root Extract

3. Basil (Ocimum basilicum)

Also known as sweet basil and St. Joseph’s Wort, basil is commonly found in spice racks and in kitchen gardens all over Europe and the Americas. It is extremely versatile in the culinary arts and is an excellent all-purpose magical herb as well. Basil is used for prosperity, success, peace, protection, happiness, purification, tranquility, and love.
