It’s an eclipsing full moon and I can’t sleep, so I thought I’d blog some bits and pieces
Gettin’ Real in the Whole Foods Parking Lot
Since they are building one in my ‘hood, this is likely my future. In addition, this was sent to me by the brightest and most wonderful woman I know: RebL, my lovely daughter. Also, I’m cheesed at Whole Foods because work there has shut off one of my rat-in-the-maze routes down Grand Blvd. at Flip’s and narrowed Western south of 63rd, making that intersection gridlock-ish. Grrrr.
If this doesn’t piss you off, you’re likely going to vote Republican and I don’t want to know you.
All the GOP folks who are thumpin’ the Bible and praising “Atlas Shrugged”? Suck this:
“[T]o be a follower of both Rand and Christ is not possible. The original Objectivist was a type of self-professed anti-Christ who hated Christianity and the self-sacrificial love of its founder. She recognized that those Christians who claimed to share her views didn’t seem to understand what she was saying.
Many conservatives admire Rand because she was anti-collectivist. But that is like admiring Stalin because he opposed Nazism. Stalin was against the Nazis because he wanted to make the world safe for Communism. Likewise, Rand stands against collectivism because she wants the freedom to abolish Judeo-Christian morality. Conservative Christians who embrace her as the “enemy-of-my-enemy” seem to forget that she considered us the enemy,” – Joe Carter.
This is especially for my friend Oz, but I thought everyone would enjoy it

In politics, there was the so-called GOP debate put on by CNN in New Hampshire. Whatever possibility for debate there was, which was slim, was extinquished when Pawlenty refused to back up his “Obamneycare” comment on the Sunday talk shows. He’s rightly being called a wimp, IMHO. Meanwhile, Michelle Bachman (R-MN) won the debate by getting the headline for announcing the filing of her presidential committee papers with the FEC, being the only woman on the stage and for not having her head explode with all the cognitive dissonance. Here’s a little info on Ms. Bachman:
Meanwhile, on Fox, the blind squirrels find a nut:
Fox News stumbles upon Wisconsin truth
Just a personal word: I’m so sorry Kim is dead. I don’t know what happened and I don’t know when the funeral will be. Much might be said, but I’ll say this: she was there for me when I was in the hospital and when I was sick at home and I’ll always be grateful for that. She is in my prayers and I hope others will join that. Rest in Peace, Kimberly.
