Gay marriage gets Bushwhacked

Americans are counting themselves lucky today that POTUS is taking on the greatest singular threat to mankind and its social structures, gay marriage. The implications of gay marriage are staggering. Studies show that if gays are allowed to marry our borders will literally crumble, and al-Qaida will pass freely into our nation with nukes from Iran and pot from Guatemala, and will take our jobs and our men. Bird flu will also run rampant, passing from person to person on strands of Mardi Gras beads. For the love of God we must stop this scourge, and keep marriage between a man and a woman. There is no greater threat to democracy, nay humanity.


A girl can dream, no?

The Theft of 2004

If you are like me you are tired of being told to get over it, to sit down, shut up, quit whining and deal with it. We are not sore losers. If you can't get pissed off about elections being stolen, about your country being taken over, about a coup...well I don't think you can call yourself an American.

A Flaming-Red Herring

The entire debate on immigration and border security just nauseates me. Nothing of any significance has happened with regard to immigration numbers this spring, there have been no new incidents of note. This is the crux of the problem today... the republicans have correctly sensed that they are going to be beaten this fall. Beaten like a bad, ugly dog that you take in out of pity only to have shit all over your house and eat your best shoes, and hump your cat. They KNOW it is going to happen. So what do they do? Well they play to people's base fears and ignorance and subconscious intolerance for "the other" and beat us over the head with it. They did it with terrorism. They did it with gay marriage. They have been tying to tie terrorism in with border security, as if we really have to fear Pedro and Maria, the zapato bombers. Now if only they could link it up with gay marriage, then they would have a REAL hot button issue....but wait, I have it!!!!

Raging Homophobe to Launch Constitutional Attack on Gay Marriage

Excerpt: The amendment would prohibit states from recognizing same-sex marriages. To become law, the proposal would need two-thirds support in the Senate and House, and then be ratified by at least 38 state legislatures.

Bush is clearly terrified of losing the last of his supporters, those just crazy conservative enough to hate gays. "Who would Jesus Bash?" Clearly the answer to that is Mo Rocca, Elton John, and Carson Kressley. Watch out Fab Five, the thumpers are coming for ya...

New Poll...W Stands for Worst President in History

I know it is a shocker, but a new poll conducted by Quinnipiac University finds that the majority of Americans voted Bush the Worst President in History. I guess we really won't have Dick Nixon to kick around anymore.

Republicans Rush to Protect Jefferson

Isn't it painfully ironic that Congress chooses NOW to be concerned about the constitution and rule of law? The Republicans are rushing to Jefferson's defense because slimebags stick together and I am sure if their offices were searched all sorts of interesting things would be found. I am sure there are boxes of good stuff being hauled out and shredded every second on Capitol Hill. But all this puffed up outrage makes me sick. Always be suspicious if a republican defends a democrat...they are up to no good!

Harpo and Groucho Survive 9/11

Ladies Home Journal:Peggy Noonan (the interviewer): You were separated on September 11th. What was it like when you saw each other again?Laura Bush: Well, we just hugged. I think there was a certain amount of security in being with each other than being apart.George W. Bush: But the day ended on a relatively humorous note. The agents said, “you’ll be sleeping downstairs. Washington’s still a dangerous place.” And I said no, I can’t sleep down there, the bed didn’t look comfortable. I was really tired, Laura was tired, we like our own bed. We like our own routine. You know, kind of a nester. I knew I had to deal with the issue the next day and provide strength and comfort to the country, and so I needed rest in order to be mentally prepared. So I told the agent we’re going upstairs, and he reluctantly said okay. Laura wears contacts, and she was sound asleep. Barney was there. And the agent comes running up and says, “We’re under attack. We need you downstairs,” and so there we go. I’m in my running shorts and my T-shirt, and I’m barefooted. Got the dog in one hand, Laura had a cat, I’m holding Laura — Laura Bush: I don’t have my contacts in , and I’m in my fuzzy house slippers — George W. Bush: And this guy’s out of breath, and we’re heading straight down to the basement because there’s an incoming unidentified airplane, which is coming toward the White House. Then the guy says it’s a friendly airplane. And we hustle all the way back up stairs and go to bed.Mrs. Bush: And we just lay there thinking about the way we must have looked.Peggy Noonan (interviewer): So the day starts in tragedy and ends in Marx Brothers.George W. Bush: That’s right — we got a laugh out of it.

Country Preacher

I remember the story about the old country preacher, who had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should give some thought along the line of choosing a profession. Like many young men, then and now, the boy didn't really know what he wanted to do - and he didn't seem overly concerned about it. One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to try an experiment. What he did was, he went into the boy's room and placed on his study table these three objects: a Bible, a silver dollar, and a bottle of whiskey..."Now then," the old preacher said to himself, "I'll just hide behind the door here, andwhen my son comes home from school this afternoon, I'll see which of these three objects he picks up. If he picks up the Bible, he's going to be a preacher like me, and what a blessing that would be!If he picks up the dollar, he's going to be a businessman, and that would be o.k. too.But if he picks up the bottle, he's going to be a drunkard - a no-good drunkard and Lord, what a shame that would be."The old man was anxious as he waited, and soon he heard his son's footsteps as he came in the house whistling and headed back to his room. He deposited his books on the bed, as a matter of routine, and as he turned around to leave the room he spotted the objects on the table. With a curious set in his eye, he walked over to inspect them.What he finally did was, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm.He picked up the silver dollar and dropped it into his pocket.He uncorked the bottle and took a big drink..."Lord have mercy," the old man whispered, "He's gonna be a GOP politician!"

Rat Bastards...and the 35% who still back 'em

I ask myself daily, HOURLY, what the hell is up with America? I know Bush's approval is way down, and probably MUCH lower than the 35% the cooked-up poll numbers give him, but with all the expanded powers Bush has taken for himself, and all the abuses of our Constitution I just wonder what Bush has to do to lose the remainder of his flock of sheep. Will it take Bush naked on prime-time television surrounded by the cast of "Queer as Folk" while he boils kittens and babies and smokes the Declaration of Independence?

Yes I know, I was never a supporter, but I can't imagine standing by anyone who abuses their authority and power the way Bush has. If my husband had abused our marriage by stripping me of my freedom, spying on my emails and phone calls, listing my contacts, questioning my library transactions, and monitoring my political activities I would have divorced him quickly and gotten a restraining order. I am willing to bet that few of Bush's supporters would have tolerated this from a spouse. Beyond that, had these intrusions come under the Clinton Administration there would have been a major revolution. I have no doubt that had Clinton attempted one tenth of the intrusions and abuses of Bush the freepers and militias would have long ago started building the pipe bombs and would have probably forcibly overthrown the administration. Bush is surely benefiting from the fact that liberals, like me, tend to be pacifists.

But what is it going to take for the country to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH? I remember in 2004 there was discussion in the Administration that they may have to suspend the election for the safety and security of the country, for fear of a terrorist attack. Not too many people screamed about that, but consider it. They could suspend elections. Then we would have a perpetual Bush presidency, and what then???

Please, share your ideas, comments, thoughts....

Bush is Above the Law

Is no one going to stop this guy???

Convicted Criminal to Advise Republicans

Great story here. Apparently this guy divised a scheme to block the phone lines of democrats and union people getting out the vote, and nearly ruined the local republican party. He goes to jail, and now is teaching young thuglicans how to perpetrate evil in future elections. Way to learn a lesson!

Newsflash....Supreme Court Silences Whisleblowers

In a 5-4 decision the Supreme Court ruled that a if a public employee discloses wrongdoings in the course of his job he is NOT protected by the 1st Amendment and will not be protected from retaliation, including firing. This could include professors at public universities speaking out against the administration, fire fighters exposing a lack of equipment....the implications are far reaching.
