    • Wednesday Reads: Hangover April 14, 2021
      Hello… as I write this on Tuesday night it is my birthday, and I’m a little tipsy on Southern Comfort. So allow me some leeway on my 51st to share my favorite song when I was a baby. And make this an open thread, because as of right now everything is a bit blurry…and who […]

      Good Morning!! I’ve been stuck inside for the past few weeks with chronic pain difficulties. Yesterday, I got out for the first time in quite awhile, and I was happy to see that Spring has finally arrived in the Boston area. Forsythia is blooming along with cherry blossoms, and light green leaves are beginning to […]

      Good Day Sky Dancers! I hope you have the same kind of sunny spring weather there that we have here in New Orleans!  I actually made a trip to Walmart yesterday!  I can’t even remember the last time I’ve been there and it use to be at least a 2  or 3 trip a month […]

      Good Morning!! Before I get to today’s news, here’s a little comic relief. This was in yesterday’s Boston Globe, but I can’t get past their rigid paywall. But I found the story at The Pest Control Daily: Boston Public Backyard used to have child alligators — sure, alligators — and other people fed them rodents. […]

      Good Afternoon Sky Dancers! I’m off to a late start today.  Doctor Daughter called and we talked forever!  She delivered over 50 babies in March so there’s evidently a Pandemic Baby Boomlet happening!  It’s kinda like the pattern that happens 9 months after blizzards or having to stay at home all summer because everything is […]

      Good Morning!! I’m going to focus on Covid-19 news today, because–despite the fact that 110 million Americans have been vaccinated–it looks like we are headed into a dangerous surge of new cases. Here’s the latest: CNN: Fauci says new Covid-19 cases are at a disturbing level as the US is primed for a surge. The […]

      Good Morning!! I’m feeling a little bit safer today because I got my second dose of the Moderna vaccine yesterday morning. I didn’t even have any arm soreness after the shot, but by bedtime my whole upper arm was aching. This morning all my joints ache. It’s difficult to know if these are reactions to […]

      Good Day Sky Danceers! So, my Senator Foghorn Leghorn is on TV embarrassing my state again.  I can’t even start with a decent opening paragraph I’m so livid right now. Oliver Willis writes “GOP senator compares Kamala Harris to notorious drug kingpin”.  Of course this comes via Fox & Friends a notorious propaganda show rooted […]

We Are All Americans

A friend of mine told me last night, “Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.” If you hear someone saying Muslims are prone to violence, don’t believe it. If you see a Muslim who walks and talks and bleeds just like you, believe it. Stop the hate.

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.
