It is crystal clear that Santorum wants his God's Laws as part of our civil and criminal law.

Really listen to what he has to say about the poor and downtrodden..............

I have no words to describe my disgust for this pompous self-aggrandizing putz.

Is this the brand of Christianity that will rule?

Jesus save the poor from your followers!

Occupy the Blogs

An anthem worthy of our consideration.

We Are The Many

Ye come here, gather 'round the stage 
The time has come for us to voice our rage 
Against the ones who've trapped us in a cage 
To steal from us the value of our wage

From underneath the vestiture of law 
The lobbyists at Washington do gnaw 
At liberty, the bureaucrats guffaw 
And until they are purged, we won't withdraw

We'll occupy the streets 
We'll occupy the courts 
We'll occupy the offices of you 
Till you do 
The bidding of the many, not the few

Our nation was built upon the right 
Of every person to improve their plight 
But laws of this Republic they rewrite 
And now a few own everything in sight

They own it free of liability 
They own, but they are not like you and me 
Their influence dictates legality 
And until they are stopped we are not free

We'll occupy the streets 
We'll occupy the courts 
We'll occupy the offices of you 
Till you do 
The bidding of the many, not the few

You enforce your monopolies with guns 
While sacrificing our daughters and sons 
But certain things belong to everyone 
Your thievery has left the people none

So take heed of our notice to redress 
We have little to lose, we must confess 
Your empty words do leave us unimpressed 
A growing number join us in protest

We occupy the streets 
We occupy the courts 
We occupy the offices of you 
Till you do
The bidding of the many, not the few

You can't divide us into sides 
And from our gaze, you cannot hide 
Denial serves to amplify 
And our allegiance you can't buy

Our government is not for sale 
The banks do not deserve a bail 
We will not reward those who fail 
We will not move till we prevail

We'll occupy the streets 
We'll occupy the courts 
We'll occupy the offices of you 
Till you do 
The bidding of the many, not the few

We'll occupy the streets 
We'll occupy the courts 
We'll occupy the offices of you 
Till you do 
The bidding of the many, not the few

We are the many
You are the few

Happy 100th Podcast

Congratulations, Blue Gal and Driftglass!

100 podcasts!

And HERE it is at The Professional Left.

Intelligent, passionate, and right on target...... take the time to listen.


Act Now

The horrible so-called anti-bullying legislation passed by the Michigan State Senate may still be stopped. The State House has the opportunity to restore sanity in that bill. And, of course, Governor Snyder should veto the bill should it arrive on his desk. The people of Michigan must stop this travesty. They must call their elected representatives and complain.

The so-called anti-bullying law creates a special protected class of people. If the bill becomes law, it will be legal for alleged Christians to bully - torture - anyone that seems to not live up to their Biblical views of modesty, propriety, and morality. These Christianists will have special rights. Special civil rights that allow them -- teachers, parents, students, principals, and other school personnel -- to make public comments and remarks about EVERYTHING and ANYONE that does not square with their particular religious beliefs.

So, go ahead and tell Johnny his mother is a whore because she wasn't married to his father. Tell sweet Sue that she will burn in hell because she is not a virgin. Tell Ralph that God never intended for his African-American father and white mother to be married, let alone have children. And, of course, any child that seems to be or may actually be gay will come to school with a target on his or her back. It will be open season on LGBT youth, their parents, and family.

I am ashamed of the Legislature in Michigan. It has been taken over by religious zealots that don't support public education. They certainly don't care about Michigan's children.

Unbelievable. Horrible. Tragic.

Judge William Adams: Monster

Please watch this "worst person" of the day...........

Worse Than Doing Nothing

This link is a must read and watch the video they offer. The Michigan Legislature has once again shown its disregard for the lives of all children --- not just the LGBT.

They have legalized bullying gay kids or Sally, the rumored slut, if they claim the Bible told them to do it.

That gives new meaning to the old B-I-B-L-E song.

I am horrified by this legislation.

The GOP are immoral cynical monsters in Michigan.

Jesus, save us from your followers!

Servants of God

Okay. I will comment about the news of the day. All I have to say is this ---------- many so-called Christians are the biggest hypocrites in the world..........

Michelle, Rick, Frothy Mix, Newt, Cain, and the others must stop pandering to the Republican base with promises of government intervention in the lives of women and anyone that loves someone of the same gender. And, shut the f#%k up! about your alleged faith.

They know Him not............. see Matthew 25.

AND. I offer this photograph of a billboard without comment.

To Serve Man

I need a project. Not a job. Just something more to keep myself active and alive is all I ask. Following Bill's death I kept busy with near daily glimpses of the wonders that are México. It helped keep me sane. But as goes my bipolar mood swings goes the things I like. Sometimes they are lost and sometimes nothing replaces them.

In the few months since moving to a new town I have not been writing and I have not been giving in to my inner photo-bug. Hence, the quest for a quest. I am nearly burnt out when it comes to activism. If I ever have something more to add to the conversations of the day I'll blog.

So, today, lacking anything else creative or interesting, I offer these photographs.

This is my Chapala Omelet from the Salon, a restaurant located in the Cultural Center in Ajijic. I enjoyed toast and jam, beans, and fruit with the flavorful omelet. My friends and I have breakfast at the Salon at least once a week, if not more often. The food is fantastic and the prices are good.

This is called Enfrijoladas. These tortillas are filled with chicken and covered with a bean sauce and garnished with a dry crumbly cheese. One's enfrijoladas may also have cheese filled tortillas. This is one of my favorite breakfast dishes from the restaurant, Chapala Fonda, located on the plaza in Chapala.

The Cucumber Restaurant is on the plaza in Chapala. They offer gringo breakfasts as well as this Mexican dish -- Huevos y Carne Asada --- steak and eggs with a side of bean. It is served with tortillas that one uses to make tacos from the foods on the plate -- together or separately. I may have a fork in one hand eating eggs while holding a bean or steak taco in the other. Or, I may put the entire meal in multiple fresh hot tortillas. No toast or jam. Hot sauce is optional.

It is often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. For me and my "breakfast club" it may be the only "big" meal. In the past year, as my friends kept me sane with our near daily breakfast dates, I found myself eating only fruit, cheese, and toast during the remainder of the day. My favorite "meal" is a large bowl of bananas and fresh locally grown raspberries. A huge plastic quart container of raspberries may cost 20 or 30 pesos. Today, that is roughly a buck and a half to $2.50 U.S.

This is one of my typical daily meals. I love the flavored mini-toasts that I may buy, but ordinary pan tostado (toasted bread) is just as tasty. Bimbo Foods sells toasted bread that has fewer additives and far less salt.

Needless to say, with my simple diet, I am healthier. The weight loss has been great, as well.

So, I am looking for a new project. And, this little show and tell session was just for fun. In time, I'll find lots of things to keep me busy. And, sane. How could I not? Living in México is still a thrill and the great adventure continues.........
