Keeping Up

It's a little past midnight here in my hometown of Portland, Oregon. I went to sleep with my 6-month-old baby around 10:30 but I just couldn't sleep after my pre-bedtime reading ritual. I asked for and recieved "The Last Days of Ancient Sunlight" for Christmas and have been slowing reading through the chapters. The problem is that there is no warning anywhere on the book that the contents would cause insomnia. I just finished reading disturbing information about Christopher Columbus and Haiti as well as the importance of trees.

RICK SANTORMAN

I WATCHED THE IOWA DEBATE LAST NIGHT AND THOUGHT THAT AFTER RICK SANTORMAN SPEECH WAS OVER THEY PLAYED THE BEATTLES HARD DAY'S NIGHT. I THOUGHT HOW HYPROCLITICAL TO PLAY THAT AT AN ULTRA CONSERVATIVE CAMPAIN BECAUSE THE BEATTLES WERE AS LEFT AND ANTI ESTABLISHMENT AS YOU CAN GET. THE REPUBLICANS ARE A BAD JOKE.

The Dirty Truth Behind The New Natural Gas - July 2010 - UPDATE 2012

After viewing the documentary GASLAND, I was mortified and ashamed of what our species is capable of. If you think this is a free country... THINK AGAIN! The Bush/Cheney administration did everything in their power to take away as many freedoms as possible so doors could be opened to allow THE CORPORATE "BEING" to have free reign on getting at any type of resource no matter who or what was in the way. I know it's hard to believe that they would go so far as to ruin our planet if only to make another buck.

Notice the date of the article January 10, 2011. Is there any significance to this type of thing happening near the end of the year (as well as other times)?!

It's Going To Be A Vecordious, Vecordious...

...Vecordious, Vecordious, Vecordious, new year. I don't mean to be latrant, but the mad nature of MMXII has me worried. The politics of this election year gives me pause for concern.

The Royal New Year

The Royal New Year, on skeletons in the garden, by leighmf

At Sandringham all gathered 'round
the scones and fruit cake wedges.
A bloody skull and bones were found
amongst the royal hedges.

"I hope it wasn't you, old Pip,
your hunting I will now disable,"
said the Queen as from her hip
she shot a kipper 'crost the table.

"I've just got back from Hospital.
I crave a decent meal.
So grind the bones for rose food, dear,
and give a chap his veal."

How Can the GOP Run American Government If They Hate It?

The coal country state of West Virginia is in the middle of a special legislative session to deal with a $270 million budget shortfall, and it's setting the stage for Republicans to completely gut the state's government.

It's the same playbook we've seen the right-wing carry out in Wisconsin, in Kansas, in Michigan, and in Ohio.
