It boggles my mind. Another white, conservative, male, republican politician gets caught with his pants down so to speak. His voting record is anti-gay marriage, anti-civil union and anti-gay adoption. He says he believes that marriage is between a man and a woman. He left 4 kids for 6 days (this time) along with his wife to secret away to South America. He said it was an “adventure trip.” Nope. It was an affair.
So how is it again that monogamous gay people are threatening “traditional marriage?”
Oh and one other thing…FOX NEWS ALERT: http://mediamatters.org/research/200610130010
Whether it’s hate speech on the radio, fox news, or from the pulpit, words have consequences. We live in a society that is full of guns and it only takes one to listen, take what is said literally and act. What we have are American terrorists. We need to call the baby by it’s name. Stop, think and Read what Frank Schaeffer has to say after the murder of Dr. George Tiller. This has got to stop. The next time I walk into a business that has Fox news on the TV I am going to ask them to change the channel or I am going to tell them why I am taking my business elsewhere.
How I (and Other “Pro-Life” Leaders) Contributed to Dr. Tiller’s Murder
As you drop that envelope in the mailbox to uncle sam here’s something to ponder….
You know all those corporations that move out of the U.S. so they don’t have to pay taxes? Halliburton moved to Dubai, there’s plenty in Grand Cayman and the Bahamas. Well, “we” the tax payers have to pay out the nose but they don’t. Tennessee is really hurting these days with “budget shortfalls” and the Governor has ordered cutbacks, hiring freezes, layoffs etc. It’s rough out there and part is because of the state of the economy in general and part is because these corporations are NOT paying their fare share. They use our “commons” (legal system, roads, police, fire, etc) to make huge profits and pay nothing in taxes. Here’s what it’s costing us right here in Tennessee every year….
Just think what the state could do if we had that in the state budget to use. (teachers, parks, environmental cleanup, clean energy programs & incentives, public transportation etc)
It’s messed up and it’s not fair. All corporations need to pay for the use of the commons. They shouldn’t be allowed to avoid taxes simply by closing up their offices here and opening a p.o. box in my favorite vacation spot offshore. (not dubai…the islands) Check out this article in today’s huffington post. the GOP wants to protest taxes for the ultra rich with tea parties today. Obama reduced taxes for 95% of us. They are nothing but shills for the big companies that are robbing us blind and taking all that bounty offshore.
Today I finished mulching the strawberry & asparagus bed. The garden is coming along and I was thinking tonight how good it is to be digging in the dirt again. It rained this afternoon so I had to quit and come inside. It’s good for the peas I planted a few days ago. I’ve planted 3 types of peas: snow peas, alaska peas and english peas. I have to build something in the beds for them to climb on. In the past I’ve used river cane poles tied together but I’m thinking of trying some wire fencing this year.
I’m watching Rachel Maddow on MSNBC and she’s talking about the “Tea Bag Protests.” Looks like some Ron Paul folks are getting on board but mostly it’s supported by right wing billionaires and covered heavily by FOX news. Dick Army is behind it too. They seem to have ignored Obama’s middle class tax CUTS. weird.
Speaking of taxes…time to mail them off kids. Am I going to see you on the local news at 11:55p 4/15?
“I realize that you may have been a little preoccupied lately with planning your resurrection as the savior of your party, so I thought I would fill you in on a few important developments you might have overlooked.
The truth is that you’re living in a world that no longer exists.”
