I don't believe in them!
Any that I choose to keep!
Well, I'm back. Hopefully I won't rant as much but Politics, Gay Rights and the Environment are still very much on my mind. I'm still fighting those evil Lawn Nazis', and I have all but given up on the intelligence of the average American. I plan to still express my opinions here on Open Salon. Hopefully someone will listen!


I've said it before and I'll say it again. Thank God for rainy days!

I've been at a loss lately for anything to write about, here on OS. Then today as a cold front passed over, bringing with it some very needed rain, I browsed through OS.  First I… Read full post »

Lowe's caves in to Bigotry!

David Caton

Once again the Florida based “Florida Family Association” has used outright bigotry, to influence sponsors of TLC's reality show “ All-American Muslim”. They are closely associated with the American Family Association another bigoted so called “Christian”… Read full post »

The other night, I watched an old movie with my 92 year old Mom.  It was one of the first movies I ever saw, and the one that introduced us to Debbie Reyonolds.  The name of the movie, Susan Slept Here.

American Crossroads, the so called "grassroots organization" run by Karl Rove, is up to it's old tricks again!

Here in Florida, we have been bombarded with ads by them claiming that none other than Bill Clinton, is against Obama's Jobs Bill.  The ads which… Read full post »

When dreams let us down!



We all have dreams.  Not the kind that you have at night, I mean dreams of things we would like to do.  I think they call it a Bucket List, these days.

For years I wanted to move to Germany.  I spent a summer there when I was much… Read full post »

A Can of Worms!

You know this is not what I had planned on posting today!

But since OS decided to log me out, just as I posted it --- oh well! So I will change the subject to the can of worms, that has ensued after another poster on OS, had the… Read full post »

Well, once again I see that my current home is no place I want to live!  The ignorance and stupidity of the population here, drives me mad!

Recently another writer here, asked me why I… Read full post »

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs, that's all we hear about lately. Both sides talk of creating jobs, but neither does much about it. Well first of all we need to face the facts. There simply are not a lot of good jobs out there anymore. Since the days… Read full post »

  Bob Dole 2012

How's this for an idea?   We the other 99%, could all re-register as Republicans.  Then we could all have a say, in who they nominated.  Just think about it we could infiltrate their tee party and totally screw it up!  Just like they have screwed around with vo… Read full post »

Occupy Wall Street?

we are 99%

So far I have resisted writing anything about the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. Other than a few pro or con comments, that I have posted on other peoples posts.

I really wanted to see, what was to become of this movement, before I commented. However,… Read full post »

  Rick Perry

 He came to St Pete Beach, to raise money for his campaign.  However he banned all media from reporting on it.

So what gives?  Evidently he is courting the religious right. and doesn't want it in the news.  Would you want someone like this in the Whitehouse?  I… Read full post »

----and The Pendulum Swings!


Ever since the anti-war demonstrations of the sixties, I have heard people talk about that old pendulum thing. Well it would seem, it still keeps swinging!

Things seemed like they were finally going somewhere when we all voted for “Change”. What we got was a lot… Read full post »

I'm Baack! --- but for how long?

Well, evidently I have been un-deleted!

Thanks to all, and any who are responsible.  I was quite worried that everything I had written had been lost forever. ( not that it would be a great loss to humanity )  Just the time spent, in thinking it, and writing it. 

This however,… Read full post »

Mom, is driving me nuts!


The old lady is driving me nuts!

She is now refusing to talk with me, because of a phone call she answered for me yesterday.  They called me back this morning.  I simply said, “ it was the doctors office, they wanted to change my appointment”  Her reply… Read full post »

Well this morning I opened the letter from the German Consulate.  To my utter amazement my biggest wish, finally came true!

"Sehr geehrter Herr Sturmer, your application for German citizenship has been approved.  Please remit the listed funds of 25 Euro to the Bundesverwaltungsamt and your… Read full post »

I started this post awhile ago and never finished it.  Then OS erased the damned thing on me!

So let me start all over.

I've been angry for much of my life.  I'm not sure just why, but that's how I am.  I'm an only child.  My parents decided, that it… Read full post »

no new taxes

While the right wing staunchly refuses to tax the wealthy, it's evidently OK to tax the poor working stiff!

The Republicans and the Tea Party have adamantly refused to allow the Bush tax cuts, on the wealthiest Americans to expire.  However  they fully support dropping the "payroll… Read full post »

HYPOCRISY! just spell it FLORIDA

In typical fashion the Tea Party governor of Florida, has turned down money from the government for High Speed Rail.  He has also adamantly refused to participate in "Obamacare".

 Yet yesterday it was revealed that he is taking advantage of a government sponsored healthcare p… Read full post »

You know, it seems almost every time I have a good idea for a post, or try to read someone elses.  I get this damned message!  I'm sick and tired of it, how about you?

 Is OS that damned popular?  Or are they simply too cheap?  Whatever, it's… Read full post »

This is not my America!

Today I read an opinion piece in Der Spiegel which made me ashamed to call myself an American.  I read Der Spiegel daily.  This is the first time I have read something quite like this.  This paper had always looked up to the United States as a symbol of freedom.  Today… Read full post »

Obama stalling for time?

Well it's now done and signed into law.  So what gives? 

 President Obama gave an address ( which he was very late for ) and spoke as if he had signed something completely different!  Is he stalling for time, or what?

A day ago, he claimed an agreement had been… Read full post »
