    • Maskless Friday Reads May 14, 2021
      Good Day Sky Dancers! I’m off to the hospital this afternoon for a series of those “baseline” tests which basically signal that I can look forward to going downhill from whatever peak they establish. I will be wearing a mask there and on the way there and back home in my Lyft ride. It’s a […]

      Good Morning!! Is there any possibility that Trump could actually be prosecuted? Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara thinks it could happen. He gave an interview to Dahlia Lithwick at Slate, published yesterday: How Close Are We to Criminal Charges for Donald Trump? To the extent anyone thinks about Trump anymore, it’s gleefully imagining his criminal […]

      Good Day Sky Dancers! It’s pouring here again and flooding.  This seems to be the new state of affairs as Climate Change goes beyond noticeable in more places than the Maldives and the gone, gone gone, beyond barrier islands and glaciers of the planet.  Our infrastructure here in New Orleans was made for 1910, not […]

Enjoy some cartoons from Cagle.com: Personally, I don’t think much of Liz Cheney…but the cartoonist seemed to be focused on her for some reason. #MomsWickedTruth my 92 yr old mother says “We didn’t get rid of him.

    • Lazy Caturday Reads: Trumpism Isn’t Over Yet May 8, 2021
      Good Afternoon!! It’s great to finally have a normal president who actually cares about the American people and isn’t completely focused on his own needs. But it’s going to take a long time for the country to recover from four years of Trump. For one thing, Trumpism still controls the Republican Party. There is also […]

      Good Day Sky Dancers! There was a pretty huge job fair in New Orleans this week alongside a first visit by President Biden to check out our dilapidated Sewage and Water infrastructure.   Our covid-19 cases have dropped and it’s a rare day when I see a death among the new case numbers.  It seems we […]

Riverdaughter Nails it, as Usual

Over at TC, Riverdaughter really nails it. She says exactly what I don’t feel like saying, and is a better woman than me for it.

This post is for all of our former friends who were Clintonistas in 2008 but somehow let their anger lead them in a different direction.

I know how pissed you were at the way your vote was taken away from you in 2008.  I know you feel disenfranchised by the one party you thought you could rely on.  You’ve been the invisible ones during this mother of all recessions.  You have lost your jobs or your family has.  You have seen government not working for you anymore where once it had.  You saw people come into office in 2008 promising change and then watched as they crumbled under the slightest wind of opposition.  They let you down, they’ve deprived you of a retirement free from worry and destitution.  They have been completely deaf to your pleas.

But don’t take it out on Muslim Americans.

The people who are channeling your rage towards Muslims are the very same people who are responsible for the mess you’re in now.  They are providing you with a distraction and an easy scapegoat.  They are pointing your rage towards destruction.  It is unproductive and won’t save your job, pay your mortgage or help you retire with dignity.  It simply takes your soul towards a dark place without the tempering spirits of civil behavior.

Please read the rest. I posted too much of it as it is, but it so has to be said. I have respect for some people who seem to have a chip on their shoulder about Islam, but I also have respect for some Porn Stars, so this isn’t saying much. (Jenna Jameson’s autobiography, How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: Highly recommended!)

I would never, ever burn a book. To do so is so irreverent, so despicable, I can’t even put it into words. A few years ago, there was an issue of Sagewoman, a Pagan magazine for women, that I was reading, and I came across a long debate over book burning. A Pagan woman had written to the editors and said that Sagewoman was too “fluffy” and that she and her Pagan group were having a “Bible Burning” event. Letters upon letters came into the editors condemning her actions, even some Christian woman who actually read Sagewoman and told her kindly that their differences with her were far less important than what they had in common. Those Christian gals behaved more like Witches than that Bible Burning woman did.

The Bible-burning Pagan chick defended herself by claiming that it was her duty to burn the Bibles, because of all the Misogynist and Racist material in the text. She pointed out the fact that thousands, possibly millions of women and children, some of them witches, had died because of what was in the Bible. She defended her actions as her Pagan duty and a couple of people even agreed with her.

But she was wrong.

She was no better than an anti-gay New Pentecostal weirdos who perform “Gay Exorcisms” on young men, causing them to vomit and have seizures. She was no better than the white guy who who won’t let his daughter go to the Prom with a black guy. And she was on par with the handle-bar mustachioed truck driving Pastor who plans on burning Qurans. And I’ll let Hillary tell us how “Patriotic” and “American” censorship is.

Thanks, Hillary.
