me- now can you all calm the fuck down and stop e-mailing me?
making fried dough and chicken soup for dinner!
GEEZZZ- just got the mail-a break in the rain-

got a " membership expiration notice" from the AARP for my mom AND my dad-

dad died in 07, mom in 09!

Unless you make over $50,000.00 - $70,000.00 per year, you will pay more in taxes with a flat tax. Basically, the more you make the more it benefits you, the less you make the more it hurts you. Why on earth would middle and lower income families vote for a candidate who is promoting a flat tax?

pouring rain and dark grey outside- mail came but i'm not going out in this!
washer is having fits and i'm not in a happy frame of mind right now!

me- what would you want? a tax cut for the middle class so you can go and buy something that you've needed or repair what is broken and help the economy here OR do you want a tax cut for millionaires so they can hoard it in overseas accounts and pay no taxes at all???

your choice.

‎"The Supreme Court has ruled that there cannot be a Nativity Scene in the United States' Capital this Christmas season. This isn't for any religious reason. They simply have not been able to find Three Wise Men in the Nation's Capitol. A search for a Virgin continues. There was no problem, however, finding enough asses to fill the stable......."       - Janetha Komarinetz
Naomi Wolf
OMG OMG OMG: "The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. Even Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) raised his concerns about the NDAA detention provisions during last night’s Republican debate. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself.

The worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial provision is in S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which will be on the Senate floor on Monday. The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing."

me- better start paying attention to this- like NOW!
‎" Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires." -John Steinbeck

me- i am not a socialist but i can see why people vote for republicans even as that party continues to take money out of their pockets and stuff their already fat bank accounts- everyone thinks that they will hit the lottery someday and join the ranks of the robber barons!

The author of the Gospel of Matthew contrasted public and private prayer. He recorded Jesus as saying:

Matthew 6:5-6: "And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men....whe­n thou prayest, enter into thy closet and when thou has shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret....­"

me- some pols would do well to remember this.
our political leaders are not and should not be trying to replace or even attempt to co-opt the voccation of any clergy. seperation of church and state

THAT is what keeps us safe from being forced to believe any one brand of a belief system.

happy day after- car broke-washer's acting strange- typical for a holiday- but the dinner yesterday turned out well and i made turkey barley soup with crimini mushrooms today.

yes, i can believe it

My little sweetie made this for me

Newt Maxwell
In support of this harmful bill, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) explained that the bill will “basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield” and people can be imprisoned without charge or trial “American citizen or not.” Another supporter, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) also declared that the bill is needed because “America is part of the battlefield.”

me- this is NOT GOOD folks- think american gitmo!

The Truth-O-Meter Says:

Says Barack Obama said, "If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose."

Mitt Romney on Monday, November 21st, 2011 in a television ad

Mitt Romney ad charges Obama said, 'If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose

On the eve of a presidential trip to New Hampshire on Nov. 22, 2011, Mitt Romney’s campaign released an ad targeting President Barack Obama. In the ad, the Romney campaign used a quote that prompted an immediate counterattack from the Obama camp, which argued that it had been taken out of context.

The 60-second ad, called "Believe in America," is designed to contrast "candidate Obama from 2008 with President Obama of today," highlighting "his failures in between," according to the Romney campaign.

The ad contrasts a 2008 campaign speech by Obama with text on the screen that criticizes Obama’s economic record, including, "Greatest Jobs Crisis Since Great Depression," "Record Home Foreclosures" and "Record National Debt."

The ad then has a clip of Obama saying,"If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose."

The clear implication is that Obama believes that his economic record is so bad that he will lose in 2012 unless he can steer the conversation away from the economy.

But the Obama camp, among others, immediately charged that the clip was taken out of context. Was it?

Here’s what Obama said in the October 2008 speech, which came about two weeks before he defeated Sen. John McCain:

"Even as we face the most serious economic crisis of our time, even as you are worried about keeping your jobs or paying your bills or staying in your homes, my opponent's campaign announced earlier this month that they want to ‘turn the page’ on the discussion about our economy so they can spend the final weeks of this election attacking me instead," Obama said in the speech. "Sen. McCain's campaign actually said, and I quote, ‘If we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose.’"

So the comment is drastically different than the way it's portrayed in the Romney ad. Obama was actually saying that his opponent’s campaign three years earlier had said, "If we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose." That context is not included in the Romney ad -- and leaving it out sends a profoundly different message.

The Romney camp seems to have anticipated this complaint. In a blog post published around the time the ad was released, Romney spokeswoman Gail Gitcho acknowledged that, "Three years ago, candidate Barack Obama mocked his opponent’s campaign for saying, ‘If we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose.’" She went on to say Obama is trying to distract voters from his economic record.

Our ruling

We certainly think it’s fair for Romney to attack Obama for his response to the economy. And the Romney camp can argue that Obama’s situation in 2011 is ironic considering the comments he made in 2008. But those points could have been made without distorting Obama’s words, which have been taken out of context in a ridiculously misleading way. We rate the Romney ad’s portrayal of Obama’s 2008 comments Pants on Fire.
John Molloy
President Obama has cut taxes more than any President since the last real republican Eisenhower. The tea party should be kissing him. However, the tea party , and the real republican party have been co-opted by the far christian right. That is a fact! Hence, it is all about ideology with the new neo-republican party. Believe what you chose to believe but don't take down this great nation over it. I believe in God, but am not going to jam my beliefs on others and kill a country doing it. We need to have a separation of church and state. In addition, we need tax reform for the rich and others to obtain more revenue to save this nation.


‎"The next time you hear one of these folks from the other side coming and talking about raising your taxes, you just remind them that ever since I've gotten into office, I've lowered your taxes, haven't raised them," he said. 

  {THANK YOU President Obama}

a really great documentary
Every time a Christmas tree is lit before Thanksgiving, an elf drowns a baby reindeer.

 In eggnog.

 (Totally stolen. Feel free to pass on.)
grey and cold and the rain is going to be getting heavier. still unseasonably warm tho!

me-no we haven't forgotten about him
Tracy Knauss
LET THEM EAT COWPIES — Congress's SuperSized Committee doesn't want to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans, the same people whose income tripled over the last 30 years while ours went up 46%. This is according to the Congressional Budget Office. Now, add to that the fact that 1/3 of the members of Congress are millionaires and that over the last two years, the net worth of members... of Congress increased 24%.
It's time to Occupy the offices and bank accounts of or Congressional representatives and to demand election law reform. If they won't do it, we must do it ourselves by electing new representatives who make a pledge to "We the People" to obey the Constitution and NOT Gover, or the Lobbyists or the Plutocrats.
i think i have everything purchaced for thanksgiving dinner- finally.

nearly was killed the other day on guys run road- someone looking straight down while driving-probably texting- crossed the center line and headed straight on to my car- scared the hell out of me!
he looked up just in time as we swerved to the right but if he hadn't looked he would have still run right into the driver's side of my car full speed!

stop texting and reading and yakking on the damn phone when you are driving- use two hands people- two hands on the wheel!

i swear if my granddaughter had been in the car i would have had my first ever episode of road rage directed toward that man!

worldwide hippie news!

Irish golfer

A golfer playing in Ireland hooked his
drive into the woods. Looking for his ball,

he found a little Leprechaun flat on his back,

a big bump on his head and the golfer's ball

beside him.

Horrified, the golfer got his water bottle from

the cart and poured it over the little guy,

reviving him.

'Arrgh! What happened?' the Leprechaun

'I'm afraid I hit you with my golf ball,' the
golfer says.

'Oh, I see. Well, ye got me fair and square.

Ye get three wishes, so whaddya want?'

'Thank God, you're all right!' the golfer

answers in relief. 'I don't want anything,

I'm just glad you're OK, and I apologize.'

And the golfer walks off.

'What a nice guy,' the Leprechaun says to

I have to do something for him.
I'll give him

the three things I would want... a great golf game,

all the money he ever needs, and a fantastic sex life.'

A year goes by and the golfer is back.

On the same hole, he again hits a bad drive into

the woods and the Leprechaun is there waiting for him.

'Twas me that made ye hit the ball here,

' the little guy says. 'I just want to ask ye,

how's yer golf game?'

'My game is fantastic!' the golfer answers.

I'm an internationally famous golfer now.'

He adds, 'By the way, it's good to see you're

all right.'

'Oh, I'm fine now, thank ye. I did that fer yer

golf game, you know. And tell me, how's yer money


'Why, it's just wonderful!' the golfer states.

'When I need cash, I just reach in my pocket

and pull out $100 bills I didn't even know were there!'

'I did that fer ye also.' And tell me, how's yer
sex life?'

The golfer blushes, turns his head away in

and says shyly, 'It's OK.'

C'mon, c'mon now,' urged the Leprechaun,

'I'm wanting to know if I did a good job.

How many times a week?'

Blushing even more, the golfer looks around then

'Once, sometimes twice a week'

'What??' responds the Leprechaun in shock.

'That's all? Only once or twice a week?'

'Well,' says the golfer, 'I figure that's not
bad for

a Catholic priest in a small parish.'
