graciesdaddy commented on the blog post Goodbye Pam’s House Blend: after nine years, closing the coffeehouse July 1
Dear, Sweet, Indefatigable Pam… My heart’s heavy over this news. But I understand. You’re tired. You need to take care of you. In in the long run, I’m going to be more relieved to know that you’re maintaining your health than maintaining The Blend. I do hope this means you’ll still keep FaceBooking and let us know how you’re progressing.
Thank you to Alvin and Laurel and Autumn for keeping us all up to speed with your posts! I feel like I know you and hope to sit down for an IRL cuppa coffee someday! And thanks to all the online friends I found via The Blend; especially Andi up in Maine! And the ultimate, primo THANK YOU to Kate for keeping YOU going through all the travails! [Us Alabama gurlz're known for our persistance!]
One thing that will remain constant: The fire and passion and gumption that you, Pam, and all of The Blend Barristas have brought to the ‘net in the name of LGBT Equality.
…And we’ll always have Elmo’s! ;)

graciesdaddy commented on the blog post Rev. Irene Monroe: Obama linking Selma to Stonewall divides black community
Some African Americans, however, felt “dissed” by the President’s speech. The linkage of their civil rights struggle to that of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) Americans did nothing to quell their dislike of the comparison. The fact that it was spoken by this president made it sting more.
UH… are these people “dissed” by being linked to the — I presume entirely lily white — women of the “Seneca Falls Convention” of 1848? Are they to be shunned and disassociated as well? For anyone to separate themselves from the Greater Human Family is both deplorable and I would venture quite anti-Dr. King.

What I was thinking. Equality might be better served if Lively were allowed to expose himself as the ass he truly is.
BRAVO, Lori!! You hit that one outta the park!

There were [are?] indigenous Alaskan tribes [Inuit?] that put their old people on an ice floe and sent it out to sea.
Just a thought.
I’m going to laugh and laugh and laugh when the Iraqi War vet with no legs beats the shit out of this asshole!
graciesdaddy commented on the blog post It’s never ‘two easy’ to learn the hard way…on camera
That happened on FaceBook this week from one of our local TV stations. They were promoting a story on the 5 o’clock news about a local winemaker in Alabama, referring to him as a “vitner.”
I just commented back with an “Uh… Guys? The word you’re looking for is *vintner*…” and supplied them with the appropriate Wikipedia page link.
They removed the original “promo,” made the change and didn’t say a word. I just left them a “Touché” comment on the new one.
Next time, I’m going to go catty with a statement like: “Good thing you’re not PRINT journalists!”
graciesdaddy commented on the blog post It’s hot in much of the U.S. — how are you faring in your area?
It’s 98° at 2 PM CDT today. Has been in the 102° to 105° range last week. The electric bill is over $200 this month and I’m having to water the herb garden everyday.
While we’re sharing and reporting, feel free to report this go-preacher to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office SVU for advocating child abuse. http://www.ccsonc.org/SVU.htm
That’ll put a stop to him.

Well-researched and well-presented, Scott!!
I think, though, that his downfall is only going to occur when George and Paul Cameron are caught in a janitor’s closet blowing each other.
But that’s just me.

graciesdaddy commented on the blog post The sexual hangups of religious and social conservatives are a danger to American society
And the way to do that is to indoctrinate people with the idea that it’s dirty. (Which is not all that difficult, given that the organs of procreation and elimination are pretty much the same. How’s that for Intelligent Design?)
And, as the old engineers’ joke goes: “Three engineering students were sitting around the dorm. One of them says, ‘You know, God must’ve been an engineer—how else could he build the human body?’ And then he said, ‘I think He is a mechanical engineer.’
“One of the friends says, ‘Yeah, why?’ and the first guy says, ‘Well, look at how the body works—all those muscles and tendons and ligaments. Only a mechanical engineer could a put that togther.’
“The second guy says, ‘Mebbe, but if God is an engineer, I think he must’ve been an electrical engineer. I mean, it is electricity that makes your heart work and your nerves—your muscles wouldn’t contract without electricity. So, He’s gotta be an electrical engineer.’
“The third guy looks at his two friends. ‘Those are interestin’ theories,’ he said. ‘But I know for a fact you’re wrong.’
“‘Yeah, okay, then what kind of an engineer was God?’ asked the two friends.
“‘He had to be a civil engineer,’ said the third guy. ‘I mean, who else would put a waste-water treatment plant in the middle of a recreation area?’”
