Eight Months In and Counting

Guess I should post more regularly. Just a quickie then, and off again. Two thoughts: One: I don't care whether a person has an issue with our president because he's black, or young, or Democrat. I don't care what the issue is. All you yahoos out there who insisted that we "respeck the Prezident" when Bush violated the office had better pay the same respect to this president. That's the bottom line. Respect one, respect all.
Two: The IWF is no more non-partisan than I am a 20 year old supermodel with 19 inch thighs. Any organization with Lynne Cheney and Wendy Gramm on the Board of Directors is CLEARLY connected to the RNC and should be ashamed of themselves for trying to pretend they are anything else. That's all I have to say about that.

Irrational Fear Area Dead Ahead

My goodness. One would have thought that as a nation we had grown up enough to outgrow our fear of the Socialist Boogeyman and the Communist Bump in the Night. Who knew that they were just hiding in the dark corners of the national minds and hearts, waiting patiently for the day that a sufficient number of people said, "Hey! Let's do something REALLY radical for a change, and vote for a change? Let's try electing someone who is not white, male, and Anglo-Saxon! Someone who wants us to stop doing things the way we have always done them. Someone who believes that there might be a better way to make things work. Someone who is willing to listen to the rest of us who would like to see a truly kinder, gentler, more generous and more inclusive country and government". Then, hey, nonny, out jumped the hiding ghoulies, shrieking "EEEEK! We can't have this! This is socialism, communism, anti-capitalism! You are undermining our livelihoods! You are stealing our rights! You are threatening our sacred way of life!" Here's a really radical thought: Maybe none of it is ours to begin with, so maybe we should stop being so afraid of losing what was given to us in the first place, and start sharing what we have been given. That's not socialism. Its much older than that, and its the way someone tried to teach us to live about 2,000 years ago.
