Walker says we’re broke –

I saw a tweet from Polifact and I thought I’d share it with you, my gentle readers.  (@TopOfMyHead) has shared a Tweet with you:  “TopOfMyHead: Gov. Scott Walker says Wisconsin is “broke.” False, says the Truth-O-Meter. http://bit.ly/f67C33″ –http://twitter.com/TopOfMyHead/status/43332836551438338

Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Westboro Baptist

This has been a week for decisions with which I am completely torn.  First, Obama’s dangerous DOMA decision and now, the Supreme Court upholds that Westboro’s hate speech is protected speech.

Let me start by saying that I love our military and I love this country.  In fact, my greatest regret is – as a lesbian – I was not allowed to serve my country.  I wanted to join the Air Force after high school, but I just couldn’t sign the form after I saw the “I’m not a homosexual” part.  Our military men and women should always be honored and when they make the ultimate sacrifice, they should be allowed to be buried with the utmost dignity.

The members of the Westboro cult (I just can’t call them a church on this day, it is an insult to the wonderful churches everywhere)  are sorry excuses for Americans.  To protest at any funeral is atrocious and despicable, but to protest at the funeral of a soldier is the lowest of low.  There is a part of me that wishes the Supreme Court didn’t stand for Free Speech, but that is my own hate-filled opinion.

We have to always join together to protect our freedoms, even when someone or some group are abusing the privilege.  If we don’t, then we run the risk of all of us losing our rights.  If the Supreme Court rules against Westboro then who might be next?  Could something I write on my blog be considered “hate” and someone could shut me down?

Now, here’s my evil thought of the day…

When Fred Phelps – that beacon of evil, hate and unChristian behavior – finally goes to the bottom pit of Hell where he belongs, let’s all go to Kansas and protest at his funeral.  Let’s give them a taste of their own medicine.  Going one bad step farther, we should show up at their weddings or any other cult events they hold and shout loudly and boldly that God and His son loves each and every one of us.  And, that evil begets evil and that we all pray for the day when our Lord and Savior comes down and judges each and every one of us, so that those of us who are true Christians can spend all of eternity in Heaven and those of us who hold hate in our hearts (and, I find myself in this latter group) will burn in the fires of Hell.

If I get to sit next to Phelps and his tiny minded, evil minions – it just might be worth it.

In the words of Tiny Tim, God bless us every one.

Ash Wednesday, Lent and Facebook

Ash Wednesday is a week from today. I just checked the date because I was wondering when I would have to stop eating meat on Fridays.

Now comes the hard part. What am I going to give up for Lent?

Chocolate?
Swearing?
My morning tea or coffee?

No, I’ve done all of these over the years.

And, then it hit me as I was reading an article about, um Facebook. I’m giving up Facebook for a full forty days and forty nights.

No farmville.
No commenting on friend’s statuses.
No contact with facebook at all.

I’m going to turn off the emails I get when someone posts to my wall. That’ll certainly clean up my inbox.
40 days without Facebook – I was going to say this should be interesting, but really, I had a life before facebook took it over!

So, friends, family and people I don’t really know (but somehow you ended up on my friend list) – Bye for 40 days.  If you want me to know what’s going on in your life – drop me an email. If you want to know what I’m thinking, please read my blog. Or, call me. How did we get through life before facebook? Oh, yeah – we actually talked to the people in our lives!

I wonder if I should list this in my status?

America’s Problem…

We were watching TV shows this weekend that we had put aside and one of those was “The Lost Valentine”.  The story is fairly simple.  Husband goes off to World War II and leaves behind a pregnant wife.  Husband doesn’t come home from war.  There is a montage scene about people helping with the war effort and pitching in.  That’s what I think we’re missing and that’s a problem.  We’re not working together to a common goal.  Yes, there were some dissenters during WWII, as there has been with nearly all of our wars.  However; the majority of people worked together for a common goal – to defeat Germany and Japan.

We could use that now.  No, not defeating Germany and Japan, but defeating the other things that affect our nation.

But, I wonder which problem that we face as a country should be the one we focus on?
