Departure from Grace??

So this is it

Really. This is it.  In a few short hours the polls will open in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire and its population will begin casting their votes.  This will continue throughout the country for the rest of the day and night in the United States until all who have registered and arrived at the polls have finished.  There will be long lines and bad weather and people will be late for work.  By 7 p.m. EST the pundits will begin to project the winner of the presidential election as well as thousands of other offices from Senator to school board. ...more

Rock the Vote

Please go vote tomorrow! What's better than exercising our democratic privilege?  Not much... but free Starbucks, Ben and Jerry's, and hugely discounted Kenneth Cole merchandise is not a bad bonus. ...more

Recording The Vote - Let Me Count the Safe Ways

For those of us who will peddle push our way to the polls it is an exciting time. Many people want to take their daughters, sons and grandchildren to witness the most dramatic and unpredictable election in recent American history. Before I begin, I need to give an ancestral shout out to Mrs. Ida B. Wells-Barnett. Ida's career included being an homemaker, teacher, writer, pamphleteer (pre-Internet print based blogger) and journalist. ...more

Prayer is the Best Weapon

Prayer is always the best weapon we have in an circumstance. The more people praying the better off we are on this election. I’ve decided I can’t let this election get the best of me. I’m just so upset over Obama, it’s stressing me out way too much. It’s more the fact that the a majority of the public refuses to open their eyes about this man (or even watch a little fox news) to see the obvious truth about Obama. The media bias, the lies, everything is just too much to watch! ...more

I voted for Obama, and I watched Fox News some.  I also took into account that the latter ...more

My dinner party nightmare

If George W. Bush is the kind of person folks might like to have a beer with, John McCain is the guy you pray you don't get seated next to at a dinner party. Thanks to McCain's performance in the past two debates, the word "snarky" has entered my vocabulary. Cranky, irascible, petulant, and angry are also getting a workout. Have you noticed that whenever McCain describes a disagreement he has with someone — like when he talked about Joe Biden during the debate —the other person is always "wrong"? He's every woman's nightmare of an arrogant, out-of-touch, patronizing man. ...more

When I brought up online that I too felt that disdain for women, coming directly from ...more

Cynthia McKinney: A Lesser-known Presidential Candidate

I swore I wasn't going to post political arguments, but I seem to have failed numerous times.  So I'm just going to stop apologizing.  McCain's okay, but Sarah Palin scares the shit out of me.  I see her face and my ovaries start to tremble in fear. ...more

Wait a minute, I thought Pres. Bush was the Devil?

Why can't Liberals have a political ...more

Screamin' Mimi

Are you a Screamin' Mimi?  Do you feel like you're the luckiest person on the planet because you have beautiful grandchildren or do you think life has passed you by because you think you're still  20 but the numbers add up to the 50's?  Are you swimming in life, loss, lack of sleep, a body image that you can't put into words...do your friends and family think your a genius who should have been a doctor (psycho therapist) because you are the only one who can solve their problems and tell you you should have been a lawyer but you're neither?????  On top of everything else (and yes, it's a ...more
