    Thumbnail   You can call me crazy – call me irresponsible – even call me late for dinner – but I don’t think I’m wrong about this ~   Lately, the Republicans have been nearly losing what’s left of their collective pod-like minds over the supposed cover-up of the attack on theU.S.embassy inBenghazi.  What did the [...]

    The good and noble General David Petraeus has apparently gone all in with a woman or two (or maybe more) who isn’t his wife.  I wonder if this might not turn into a Tiger Woods moment with women eventually crawling out of the woodwork like termites eating their way through a supporting beam.   But [...]

    Post election I’ve heard a lot of talk from political pundits and writers.  But two refrains seem to be repeated endlessly and by an assortment of people – from the Right to the Left.  This isn’t the first time these topics have been analyzed and grumbled over – I remember well when the Republicans lost [...]

    Although I believe these elections are a sham and a not very humorous joke – I will admit that I went to bed last night feeling rather sickened at the possibility of waking up to a President Romney this morning.    There’s really only a hair’s width of difference between Mitt and Barack on most [...]

    Yeah, my old man and I have never counted on Social Security or any of that stuff…we’ve long since understood that by the time we get there, we’re on our own. George Carlin was a man of vision, that’s for sure. He had that nailed a long time ago – and we saw the truth [...]

    Yes indeed. I’m voting Third Party myself – although I’m not in a swing state, so no one in the political atmosphere cares. And, I agree with you absolutely. He has no problem lying…none at all. If he’s breathing, he’s lying. So, if he wants to win the presidency, then let the lying freak flag [...]

    Let it be stated clearly, I am no fan of Barack Obama.  That said, he should be doing far better with the voting public than he is.  The fact that this presidential contest is as close as it is, absolutely sends my mind reeling.  Given the lack of substance, decency and authenticity of Romney – [...]

    There’s really no hope for this country, I fear.  If there is, it certainly won’t be in my lifetime.  And why do I say this, you might ask?  Well, actually, no one asked, but I’m going to answer anyway.  It’s because you can never, ever underestimate the collective stupidity of the American public.    We [...]

    This is why I adore this site more than any other – the readers and writers are so intelligent and articulate. I appreciate, more than you can imagine, the kind words directed at me. But even more – just reading everyone’s opinions – I don’t know…just gives me hope in humanity – well…maybe a small [...]

    ThumbnailBefore the Presidential debate last Wednesday, I had jokingly commented on another blog that my husband and I might do a drinking game during it.  We could take a shot every time someone lied – and that we’d probably be drunk within ten minutes.  If we’d opened a bottle of vodka instead of eating ice-cream, I [...]

    Thanks…and I agree. It drives me crazy how people say things like, “When a third party is viable, then I’ll vote for them.” Well…hey, dummy…it doesn’t get viable unless people actually vote and work for them.”

    I agree completely. And as far as I could see – he didn’t surprise me one whit last night in the debate either. Romney lied, and Obama couldn’t challenge him on certain issues, because his policies would only further hurt regular people while protecting those who have everything already.

    Recently a bunch of celebrities have taken to the airwaves to encourage or bully us into voting.  Well…not just vote in general, but vote specifically for Obama.  This is despite the fact that there are several interesting third party nominees to vote for – Rocky Anderson, Jill Stein, and my personal favorite, Roseanne Barr.   [...]

    I loved reading these comments. Such smart and well-formed opinions and assessments. What calms me personally in times like these or when so many other people are behaving or believing in ways that I can’t wrap my brain around – is that there are indeed other people that see the world with more clarity, nuance [...]

    It’s somewhat disturbing to me that so many liberals and progressives that I normally see eye-to-eye with, today I am at cross-thoughts with.  Instead of a sober and multi-faceted reaction to the recent killing of bin Laden, people are whoopin’ it up in jubilation.   “We won!” and “Obama rocks!” – not to be confused with [...]

    Decades ago, courtesy of our astronauts who boldly went where no man had gone before, I saw a photograph of Earth for the first time.  The sight of our planet, in its entire magnificent splendor, dangling out there in space, filled me with reverent awe.  Yet…at the same time…it was pretty horrifying to me.  I [...]
