The Tea Party and the Gay Holocaust

Russia is moving to take children away from their parents if their parents are gay. To be clear, we aren't talking just about adopted kids, we are talking the birth children of gay parents. All too often, we use Nazi Germany and Hitler as a way of saying we don't like someone… Read full post »

The last eight years have been a nightmare for progressives. The Bush Administration pushed this country back decades and it had an eager partner in Congress. For six years, the Democrats sat back and watched while a Republican Executive and Congress passed law after law with no hands reaching across… Read full post »

Drop The Bone, Blue Dogs

OM NOM NOM NOM"Drop it... drop it!" We yell this frequently at our Staffie mix, Jesse. It always takes us a few tries and a little bit of wrangling to get him to surrender the disgusting found object being gnawed on. He's tenacious, to say the least. It doesn't matter how repulsive… Read full post »

I Want My Flying Car (and the Public Option)!

"I was promised flying cars! I don't see any flying cars!" Avery Brooks may have found an answer by the end of this IBM commercial from early 2000, but his angst towards an unfulfilled promise has become my rallying cry as the public insurance option is slowly slipping away.

"Rationed Care" is the new "Death Panels"

Fox News The Wall Street Journal has yet another stellar opinion piece in today’s paper that reminds us, once again, who owns it. In “Obama's Senior Moment”, the editorial staff at the WSJ warn seniors that maybe President Obama doesn’t want to kill them with death panels, but… Read full post »

An Open Letter to Whole Foods CEO, John Mackey

Dear Mr. Mackey,

I am really depressed today. You see, I spend about $1000 a month at your Princeton location. I also do all my catering through that location. I love my local Whole Foods.

I'm really sad because there is no way in God's green Earth that I will… Read full post »

I need to dumb myself down to save my sanity

I think I may have discovered the path to inner peace:

Stupidity.

I can't help thinking the people with the highest levels of self-esteem and confidence of convictions are people who are stupid.  It appears to be easier to offer an ignorant opinion and be aggressive about it than to try and reason… Read full post »

The Kite-Eating Tree Strikes again

Last Mother's Day, my son's brand-new kite was devoured by the Kite Eating Tree - twice. The first time he and my husband were able to retrieve the kite, but the second time, the kite was tree noms. Saturday was the perfect kite flying day. After tossing on sweatshirts and… Read full post »

Googling Life

Google is a media behemoth. The company mastered search back in the nineties and has gradually worked to engulf just about anything else you can do on the web (or your phone) ever since. Usually I hate this type of activity, please reference Microsoft or NewsCorp as examples of companies… Read full post »

It's My Internet, Damnit!

Facebook is cramping my style. To understand why it's cramping my style, you should probably know what constitutes my style.

My Style: 

Blah, blah, blah, here's a picture, blah blah blah, Neo Cons suck!, blah blah blah, OMG! 

That has been my internet style for a while now. It's not… Read full post »

This McCain could have won.

John McCain probably could have won this election if this was the McCain he put out there for the electorate. This was the John McCain I respected for years -- until the GOP tried to reshape him to… Read full post »

I spent the inauguration twittering, which is a first for me. I've had my Twitter account for 2 years, but I really only use it as a way to link my Facebook account to my LiveJournal. I know that's a head scratcher, but you'll have to trust me when I say… Read full post »

New Blog

I am inspired by the Open Salon links that have been coming to me in my daily newsletter to create my own blog here. Will it suck? Possibly. I am the ultimate in lazy blogging, but we'll see. So far, the posts here are imported from my LiveJournal.

Enough about this bizarro socialism charge coming from the right. If you are buying this, I have a nice, shiny bridge to sell you in the Florida Keys. Marty Moss-Coane covered this ridiculousness on Friday’s Radio Times if you want to hear exactly how this bullshit has been sold.There are only…

From Erika, a wonderful link about Sarah Palin’s support of the democrats. At least there is one thing I can say I like about her. Someone may want to point out to her that the Republicans are represented by the elephant. Poor dear.… Read full post »

Networks covering the debates.

Without getting into the politics of the debates, I have to say that one thing that has disappointed me is the way in which the networks (cable and the big boys) are failing to truly label their commentators. If you have Peggy Noonan commenting on the VP debate, you should not label…

Great Quote
