Writing for tomorrow, day 75, I’m a bit rushed, as I have ti get ready to leave for the prison .

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today’s took me 3:54 (average 5:14).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Short Takes:

From MSNBC: Gohmert started ANOTHER Conspiracy Theory

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Talk about scary. When foreign governments base their policy on the ravings of Go Go Goosestep, it shows just how dangerous Republican sedition has become.

From Bill Moyers: The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) identifies storms using a rotating list of first names. This year, for example, we could be in for a Hurricane Pablo, Rebekah or Sebastien. If these storms cause massive destruction — on the scale of what Sandy wrought last year — actual Pablos, Rebekahs and Sebastiens may feel less than appreciative of the WMO’s method.

350.org, the environmental activist group headed by Bill McKibben, has suggested an alternate method of identifying disastrous storms: Name them after the politicians who prevent action on climate change in Congress.

 

What an absolutely marvelous idea! Please sign the petition.

From Right Wing Watch: On his radio broadcast this afternoon, Bryan Fischer delivered a vigorous defense of Russia’s anti-gay "propaganda" law, saying that, if anything, it doesn’t go far enough.

 

This certainly indicates that Russia is now a Republican Reich.

  1. Love the Climate Name Change video – and signed the petition.   Very glad your volunteer day went so well – do rest up a bit as you have the big journey to the doctor next – what a week!

  2. 4:24  The lizard and the TomCat were too fast for me.

  3. How did you do? 4:54

  4. Puzzle — 3:55  I don't like lizards but I couldn't run fast enough to get away.

    MSNBC — Goh-merde has his PhD in Bullshitology!  If ever there was a poster boy for pro-abortion, he's it!  You know the world has lost its marbles when Goh-merde is taken as the voice of anything!

    Bill Moyers — Great video!  I want Stephen Harper added to the list of names!  Petition signed.

    Right Wing Watch — Well if Fischer is so enamoured of the Russian law, perhaps he should put his money where his mouth is and go and live in Mad Vlad's Russia.  These fanatical evangelical right wing pseudo Christians would rather die I think than accept that homosexuality is not a lifestyle, but rather being a homosexual is the way God intended and made some people and creatures.  I find these anatical evangelical right wing pseudo Christians offensive to common sense and decency.

    Cartoon — Amen!  When I looked at the cartoon, the first thing that came to mind were the words of the Vince Gill song "Let there be peace"

    Let there be peace on earth
    And let it begin with me.
    Let there be peace on earth
    The peace that was meant to be.
    With God as our father
    Brothers all are we.
    Let me walk with my brother
    In perfect harmony.

    Let peace begin with me
    Let this be the moment now.
    With every step i take
    Let this be my solemn vow.
    To take each moment 
    And live each moment 
    With peace eternally.
    Let there be peace on earth,
    And let it begin with me.

    Take some time to rest, TC  We need you here.

    who is Gohmert, and why would anyone take him seriously?

    From Bill Moyers,  I signed the petition, I think thenext one should be Mitch McConnell, and then Rand Paul

    Never heard of Fischer, but then, I am a liberal.  What kind of mind numbing propaganda is this?

    Graphic:  Wish I had been there, too.

    • Thanks, Edie!  Trying!…

      A Congressmember.  I refuse ti share my gender with it.

      Ther certainly deserve that dubious honor.

      Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christian InsaniTEA.  That's what kind.

      It was a wonder.
