#105 Impermanence
What makes life so valuable? Usually we don't know what we got until we are about to or actually lose it. It is not that we take it for granted, it’s more of thinking that whatever it is, will always be there. It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase Live in the now and appreciate the moment when we realize what it took to get here and how fleeting this moment is. #philosophy #culture #society #journal #personal #earlfrancis #twr #thisweeksrehash #death #now #life #podcast

#104 Personal Politics
Quite frankly, presidential elections are dramatic and is more of a spectacle than anything else. Politicians will be politicians no matter the party.  What really affects us most are the local laws that our own city and state come up with. Those are what screws with our everyday lives. I often wonder how it would be like if there were no professional politicians. Instead just regular working men and women who volunteer some of their time to actually serve the people. #politics #personal #culture #society #democrat #republican #journal #usa #earlfrancis #twr #thisweeksrehash #politicians #voting #election

#103 Remembering the Dead
I guess the concept of people passing is hard for us to grasp because no one really knows what happens after or is there even an after life.  Every tradition has their own version of a world beyond this one and whatever requirements necessary to have a pleasant life there.  I guess that is why we imagine the after life as something like this life because this is all we know. #death #philosophy #spirituality #religion #culture #society #spirit #funeral #cemetery #belief #earlfrancis #twr #thisweeksrehash

#88 How long do we hold on?
Two traveling monks reached a town where there was a young woman waiting to step out of her sedan chair. The rains had made deep puddles and she couldn’t step across without spoiling her silken robes. She stood there, looking very cross and impatient. She was scolding her attendants. They had nowhere to place the packages they held for her, so they couldn’t help her across the puddle. The younger monk noticed the woman, said nothing, and walked by. The older monk quickly picked her up and put her on his back, transported her across the water, and put her down on the other side. She didn’t thank the older monk, she just shoved him out of the way and departed. As they continued on their way, the young monk was brooding and preoccupied. After several hours, unable to hold his silence, he spoke out. “That woman back there was very selfish and rude, but you picked her up on your back and carried her! Then she didn’t even thank you! “I set the woman down hours ago,” the older monk replied. “Why are you still carrying her?”  - by Jon J.

#85 It starts with US
Black history is American history - Morgan Freeman How does cutting the Police Department's budget solve racism?  Is this how we thank them for protecting us during the riots?  How about taking out the Mayor's protective detail and take him out of his bubble? Racism or Police Brutality?  One is a matter of perception, how we perceive and relate to each other while the other as a matter or training and policy which is far more practical to solve. All this, starts at home.    I think it is more important to make headway in our own house,  by the time the system comes into play, the damage is done - Denzel Washington #society #culture #philosophy #rehash #twr #thisweeksrehash #earlfrancis #podcast #journal #personal #life #blm #lariots #racist #morganfreeman #denzelwashington #usa #entitlement #

TV talking heads and politicians keep debating on whether it is a good idea to open up the economy.  Who should make the call, what businesses are to be permitted and so forth.  Keep in mind all these people are getting paid to talk even when they are at home.  None of these people care about our families.  They can careless about the bills that we have to pay.  At the end of it all, we have to decide and do what we got to do to survive.  #society #culture #philosophy #rehash #twr #thisweeksrehash #earlfrancis #podcast #journal #personal #life #pandemic #covid #corona #lockdown #quarantine #work #money #economy #finance

Lessons Learned in Lockdown:  Budget Not everyone has the luxury of making residual income or working from home.  For those of us who still have to go out and work to make a living, we have to find other ways to ease the burden and one of the lessons learned in this lockdown is how important a budget is so that we could have a "Buffer" and an "Emergency money"  especially for times like this. #society #culture #philosophy #rehash #twr #thisweeksrehash #earlfrancis #podcast #journal #personal #life #budget #money #tips #finance #family #household #emergency #lockdown #covid #corona #pandemic

Lessons Learned in Lockdown: Homeschooling All of a sudden all children are now homeschooled even the college students.  It isn't that bad right?   There are a lot of misconceptions about homeschooling and perhaps one good thing out of this lockdown is that people would get to see that it is not how it is portrayed in mainstream media.   #society #culture #philosophy #rehash #twr #thisweeksrehash #earlfrancis #podcast #journal #personal #life #school #homeschool #lausd #education #covid #corona #lockdown #quarantine

#76 Civil Liberties in Crisis
It is a slippery slope when we start giving up our civil liberties.  Is it not the whole point of having a constitution, is to have a guiding principle when the lines get blurry and things get tough. Is safety more important than freedom?   #society #culture #philosophy #rehash #twr #thisweeksrehash #earlfrancis #podcast #journal #personal #life #freedom #politics #news #covid #corona

#75 Safety v Economy
As we all go through this ordeal with Covid-19, people are questioning our 45th President's encouragement to open up the Economy and let people start working again.  They are saying that he is dismissing the safety of the people.  I for one am torn.  As much as I'd like to keep myself and my family safe,  I am worried that my shortened work hours would be enough to sustain my family.   #society #culture #philosophy #rehash #twr #thisweeksrehash #earlfrancis #podcast #journal #personal #life #covid #virus #trump #politics #news

#45 Suspensions are now Suspended
California Senate Bill 419 by July of 2020, bans all public and charter schools from suspending students whose behavior falls under "Willful Defiance" until 2025 if not extended.  It now allows students to swear and insult their teachers,  not their school work, not to follow directions and not to pay attention with no consequence.  So what is school for then?  Maybe some children are just not meant for school because they learn in a different way.  How about those children that want to do well in school.  Who advocates for them? #society #culture #philosophy #rehash #twr #thisweeksrehash #earlfrancis #podcast #journal #personal #life #school #lausd #charterschool #losangeles #california #public #education #suspension #childcare #children

#16 Are you a Racist?
The word racist has been thrown around like it was another curse word.    Vaguely defined and often used out of context.   What does being a  racist really mean now a days?    #society #culture #philosophy #rehash #twr #thisweeksrehash #earlfrancis #podcast #journal #personal #life #ethnicity #race #racism #blm  #losangeles #news #riots #lariots #social #socialmedia

#15 Do you forgive and forget?
If you still remember an offense, does that mean you have not truly forgiven? If we forget offenses, wouldn't that be an opportunity for the same person or others to hurt us again? #society #culture #philosophy #rehash #twr #thisweeksrehash #earlfrancis #podcast #journal #personal #life #forgiveness #bully #pain #hurt

#7 Highway Robberies in Los Angeles
Move if you can, spare yourselves! Robberies are happening all over Los Angeles. People are getting screwed over and over.  Why pay to use roads that you already paid for to build and continually pay to maintain.  Where will the money go?  #politics #corruption #losangeles #culture #society #tips #rant #twr #thisweeksrehash #earlfrancis #news #local #politicians #greed
