So, was this just "for fun" or serious?

It is my belief that we are an American community. The way that Coulter is slicing and dicing us, stereotyping and insulting us, judging people and grouping us, is so much like what it must have been like to live in Germany in the early days (maybe not so early) of the Third Reich. The press should not be giving this wounded woman (is she not like a dying carnivore?) a voice--does CNN give her one now? Every person who publicly declares that a liberal is the "enemy" of America bears some responsibility for the deaths and injuries of the innocent Americans from Tennessee.

Swiftspeech has found the best post I've seen on this responses to the Tennessee tragedy.

McCain's popularity contest...and the elites

Huh? I just don't get how useful it is that McCain keeps pointing to how popular and admired Obama is. First he showed us how much the press, especially NY Rudy-loving Chris Matthews, loves Obama. Now he's showing us how much the world loves Obama. Gee, it's almost like Obama's RONALD REAGAN. I honestly think McCain is trying to lose.

Meanwhile, I keep hearing rich white collar execs say that Obama's going to soak them with tax cuts (which means they are rich, but they vehemently deny being rich, which drives this formerly poor person over the edge of anger). I said to my husband, "Yeah, and the Bush's think they aren't rich because the Saudi's have more money than they do." That's our whole problem, isn't it? That's Limbaugh's job, to convince poor people that voting for Republican elites helps them. A scam! As if to answer my prayers, here's this: Bill Kristol

Supporting the liberal media...

Putting our money where our mouths, and TVs, are.

Let's boycott those businesses that support hate radio

This post gave me an idea. How can we find out what companies are supporting Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Bill O'Reilly with advertising dollars without watching them? I will be happy to list them here: seems out of date...


This is why, the comments being made by McCain that are SO OUT OF LINE, need to be CALLED OUT by our media. Suggesting that Obama would like to lose a war to win a campaign is hate speech for some folks, and suggests treason to all of us. And that is true DESPITE some people's inability to understand the criminality of our current President.

Terrorism in Tennessee

A very sad, tortured man committed this hate crime and I believe that he will be tortured further since he did not die. I hope to see that the Rush Limbaughs, Bill O'Reillys and Sean Hannitys who encourage hatred toward liberals will be held accountable as well--they owe us sincere apologies and a change in their behavior. If this isn't a wake-up call to ALL of us that we need to tone down our rhetoric toward those who hold different opinions to us (mea culpa) I don't know what is. I also believe that if this man is not tried on terrorism charges, then our government is sanctioning fascism in this country. I believe that anyone who takes a gun and shoots down innocent civilians should be tried as a terrorist.

This was an abomination to our liberty and our freedom of religion.

America's thirst for the violent and morbid...

We saw X-files last night and I was hoping for aliens, but I got spiritual pedophiles, horrifying stalkers of and imprisonment of women, morbid body part scenarios, and a few depressing stories thrown in, including a dying child and already dead child (the last narrative was completely over the top!). I'm not saying it was a bad movie, it held together as a story, but it was horrifying, disgusting and cruel. I seem to remember the X-files being spooky, creepy and FUN. Not f-ing depressing and gruesome. I left thinking that Chris Carter must have been influenced by CSI, which I can't stomach either (and may actually be worse, I don't know). And before the movie we got the History channel's advertisement for CGI graphics of dinosaurs killing each other like we've never seen, complete with blood squirting on to the screen for us. Ugh!

I have a three year old and a baby boy, and right now I'm learning how much affection means for their health, and for us, actually. Hugs actually change our brain chemistry to make us feel good about ourselves. I just don't understand the lust for violence, gore and horror in our entertainment. Sex, yes, more love and beauty please.

The Fog of Time

Oil. It's in our faces. Why can't we believe our eyes? I've been very affected by Greg Palast's article. It explains everything.

We are not in Iraq to GET their oil, we are in Iraq to STOP the flow of that oil.

Mega profits for Exxon-Mobil and the Saudis, OPEC.

The CABAL of oil executives in the White House.

It's a no-brainer.

During the "Gulf War," I told a very good friend that that war was about the oil and not about protecting people, she said, "Is that so bad?"

Complacency is rampant...
