I may not like everything that is happening right now, but I do like what I see in this photo. Do you see what I see?
I'm not very good with cameras and photo files and misplaced the original. So I took another tonight. The scales were a graduation gift from a very old friend who found them at an estate sale. They move based on the weight of objects placed on… Read full post »
I am told "thank you for your service" all the time here in San Antonio and even something that simple is more than I ever expected. It renews my pride as a veteran. Make a veteran's day and say thank you. (Not to me - but to someone you know in… Read full post »
I just heard Keith Olbermann refer to Governor Palin as "used McCain goods."
He said it clearly and with derision.
I am really starting to wonder if his brain is connected to his mouth.
Enough with the bashing of Governor Palin, already.
All of this post… Read full post »
I am a big fan of rescued dogs and have been adopting strays my whole life. There is nothing better than a dog in your home and nothing better than giving a homeless dog a home. Who cares about breed or pedigree. The future President is the ultimate American mixed breed… Read full post »
My candidate lost last night to a bad man. I poured time and treasure into the race and am sad today, but I never give up and will pledge my continued support to Lt Col Rick Noriega if he decides to run for Senator Huchison's seat. I lick… Read full post »
Update on 21 Oct 2008 1714 CST: To those linking over from Slate, please realize that this post was written before I became aware that Rhiannon Volpe had been trying for weeks to get publicity for her shirts in an effort to make $$$ off of sexist hate. Please/… Read full post »
(Steph asked to see a picture of the 8'by 4' Noriega for Senate sign in my front yard and here it is large and in charge and lashed to four wooden stakes sunk a foot and a half into the ground to keep it from blowing away)
I'm watching MSNBC and Todd is rapping with Matthews about the comedic routines and stylings of Senators McCain and Obama and Matthews actually said RULE when describing Senator McCain and Senator Obama. As in one of these two guys will RULE the country.
Yes, evidently the president RULES… Read full post »
This is from an email forwarded by my mother who is tired of my attempts to persuade her not to vote for Senator McCain. It is her way of changing the subject:
The heaviest tips the scale at just over 24 pounds, while the lightest weighs about 11 pounds.… Read full post »
It looks like lovely Obama campaign volunteer Volpe may be deliberately courting publicity and outrage so she can cash in on liberal hate and sexism by selling her Sarah Palin is a Cunt T-shirts. People will do anything to make money.
Please amaze me with how you will pretzelize your values to condone or excuse this like many of you condoned or excused the Sarah Palin is a Cunt shirts made and sold by an Obama campaign volunteer. Please continue to amaze me with your partisan hypocrisy.
Thanks to Stellaa for giving… Read full post »
How is this not misogyny?
If you think this is ok, you need to go here.
Again, I do not defend Palin because I agree with her. I defend her from misogyny as I would any woman because that is what feminists and true progessives do.… Read full post »
Asked in the comments of No Banker Left Behind Passes - Oh, the OINK of it! if there was anything redeeming about the bailout, I went looking for some "silver lining." What with an additional 150 billion dollars of pork, there had to be something that will be of… Read full post »
It took 150 billion dollars of ear marks to buy the votes, but the No Banker Left Behind bill has passed. 263 to 171.
I noticed today that most articles about the bill now refer to it as a "rescue" not a bail out and that the amount of spending… Read full post »
I realize Paulson was injecting levity into a tense situation, but did you ever think to see the day when a very powerful man would genuflect publicly in such a way to a woman?
I'm referring to Paulson kneeling before Pelosi to beg for the bailout bill.
The situation… Read full post »
During tense negotiations over a two martini lunch, I outbid the National Enquirer. Stacks and Stacks of little green paper cannot compete with ::CAKE::
Freaky is a candidate that only speaks truth and this photo proves it:
Over in the comments section of The Bridge's post on the sexist commentary during beach volleyball, a discussion of the bikini uniform arose.
Poking about on the internet it became apparent that many feminist bloggers are noting the skimpy attire of not just the beach volleyball women, but a… Read full post »
Here is wishing the squirrel a happy birthday.
The horse and mule live thirty years

Previously titled: Promise Parity in the Cabinet or Obama will not win
If you haven't seen this clip from the last SNL, you've been under a rock.
What is amusing is how the different sides are interpreting the skit and it's possible impact on the race. Along predictable partisan lines, Democratic leaning pundits opine hopefully t… Read full post »
Although it would have been enjoyable to see Senator Obama again grace the tube with an appearance on Saturday Night Live, his decision to cancel is wise.
This is going to be a weekend of body recovery and tragedy. Current estimates indicate over 100,000 homes have been destroye… Read full post »

Texas butterflies are smarter than you might think. They began evacuating for Ike yesterday. Last night as I drove out of San Antonio for the border (the first time), they streamed across the countryside in advance of the blowing winds. It was like they knew Ike was… Read full post »
