Raise Your Voice: Consider the Time

Raise Your Voice: Consider the Time

By PETER MOLENAAR Peter Molenaar As per the familiar Big Bang, the age of our universe is said to be 13.772 billion years (give or take). However, for old timers such as myself, this estimate is disconcerting. For heaven’s sake, what time was it before the beginning of time? Dear astronomers, please consider the possibility that time has no beginning nor end, and therefor, the dimension of time is cyclical in nature. Then please, consider the corollary: our universe will continue to expand but only to a maximum limit, after which, it will (again) contract to its minimal size limit. In other words, the phenomenon of the Big Bang is itself infinitely cyclical in nature. It seems we ponder such things as Christmas and the new year approaches! Is it normal for the ‘philosophical materialist’ to commend the life of Jesus? Well in fact, Jesus actively opposed the exploiters and oppressors of his day. So, the answer is: yes. But, is [...]

Closer to home, General Mills hiked its prices five times since June of 2021, and the company saw its net earnings climb 32% in the first quarter of the current fiscal year. Excuse us for not believing that Governor Walz was responsible! However, while canvasing in Blaine under the banner of Teamsters Local 120, I did encounter a couple who insisted that Democrats foster pedophilia. Hopefully, repetition of [...]

Raise Your Voice: The Voice of Minnehaha

Raise Your Voice: The Voice of Minnehaha

Peter Molenaar. Image provided by author. By PETER MOLENAAR Like many in this neighborhood, I don’t entertain expensive vacation plans to distant places, but prefer to explore the natural beauty which surrounds and embraces our city. Dakota trails along the Mississippi and Minnesota are known. Minnehaha Creek contains the spirit as well, but upstream from the falls, the bed is bone dry now. Indeed, the dry bed of Minnehaha whispers its own truth, yet MAGA Republicans say it ain’t so. Meanwhile, the Republican Party candidate for Governor has declared that investment in public education is a “black hole” (get it?). Evidently, the concept of reparations in the form of early childhood education is beyond their mental capacity… fixated as they are on granting more tax breaks for the rich and super rich.Moreover, Keith Ellison, our hard working, mild mannered “people’s attorney” is opposed for the office of Attorney General by a hedge fund attorney! Hedge fund? [...]
