GOP heads into the Twilight Zone for Super Tuesday

And it was a time of great vulnerability.  But I didn't know it then.

Because at age 20, away at college, and in love with the future, I couldn't see anything but hope and sex and an unwavering commitment to idealism and reverie.

So we danced around reality—he and I—and played family in the rental in Davis, walking my dogs, having coffee and drinking Bailey’s—becoming grown-ups—playing Scrabble while blasting Led Zeppelin 4, and spending lazy Saturdays listening…

Cold Shower Experiment

I subscribe to Simpleology. When they suggested cold showers in the morning, with the possibility that it would make me less sensitive to cold weather, I decided to try it.

For the first 3 months, I hated my morning cold showers, but winter was coming and I thought a few minutes in the morning would be a minor trade-off for avoiding winter misery. I did breath-of-fire in the shower. I became a master of the quick shower,…

1-Sentence: Gay Gateway Snack

Doritos “make the perfect gateway snack to introduce children to the joys of homosexuality,” writes popular right wing blogger Ed Straker, who suggests as a remedy, persuading "a hot dog maker and a hot dog bun company to do a joint effort promoting man-woman" sex.

We Canucks seldom, if ever, honour our heroes and heroines -- no Davy Crocketts or Jim Bridgers or Alvin Yorks here.

It doesn't matter much to us that we had a prime minister who won the Nobel Peace…

A young girl gets involved in politics

This video made its way to my FB account today.

What started off as a campaign in favor of Bernie, turned out to be a mob of the worst kind.

Trump - The Producer

        Remember that movie – The Producers?  Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom (played by Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder) try to put on a show that’s bound to fail.  They search for the most offensive, preposterous script and, well, here’s what Wiki says: 

“After reading many bad plays, the partners find the obvious…

Drug Gang Guards Stash With Live Crocodiles

Drug Gang Guards Stash With Live Crocodiles:  Police in Amsterdam have arrested 11 suspected drug-dealers who assigned the task of guarding their loot to unusually ferocious guards - a pair of fully-grown crocodiles.  Sounds like someone’s been watching too many Austin Powers movies.  Some say this might constitute animal cruelty if the poor crocs get hooked on drug addicts.  Now if its marijuana these dealers are selling, I assume it would be sold as…

Rescue us

A few years ago, I happened upon Eldad Hagar’s pet rescue non-profit Hope For Paws, and watched his videos with tears streaming down my face. I Liked his FB page and still click over often to see the heartwarming stories of this caring man and his crusade to save abandoned and abused dogs and cats and bring them back to health and trust and make it possible for them to find homes - no matter how old, disabled or…

What happened to the party of Lincoln or Teddy Roosevelt?

What happened to the party that founded national parks, freed the slaves, passed the EPA and even came up with the Earned Income Tax Credit?

"In Love With Lichens" Helps Girls Get Over Stupid Boys

CONCORD, Mass.  Ethel Farley has been a teacher in the schools here for over two decades, long enough to be able to spot a young girl with a broken heart halfway across a crowded lunch room.  “They get a valentine from a boy and they read too much into it,” she says as she comforts Tracy Nubin, an 11-year-old who’s just been given the cold shoulder by Kenny Reynolds, a hyperactive boy in her fifth grade class who was required by Massachusetts regulations to send a valentine to every person…

Republicans Unite! You have nothing to lose but the Clintons

Will Certain Republicans Ever Learn?

Assuming that the Republican Party is not possessed with some sort of death wish, it’s hard to understand its growing undermining of a candidate that by all accounts could easily capture all three branches of the U.S. governments for conservatives. That candidate is Donald Trump.

My readers, both of them, know that Trump was at the beginning not my candidate of choice. But for reasons that are hard for me to understand, better…
