The Bilerico Project tells how Clay and his partner of 20 years were treated and in the worst way possible.  Is the extent of gay hatred so bad that no laws protect us?  Is this the country that I served in the military for and forgave – for all her murderous, racist, sexist, rape of people’s souls – because she was going to be beautiful one day?

Was it because Florida got away with  preventing Lisa Pond and their children to be with her dying partner since they were a lesbian family?  Is it now a free for all on all gay people – when it comes to health care and our legal rights as a citizen in this God-forsaken country.

I’m having one of those moments where I think the only way to resolve anything is to destroy the bastards before they finish destroying us.  But then, my humanity stops me.  And then I have to apologize for thinking such vile thoughts.  There is a lesson here but I’m not sure what it is.  Read The Bilerico Project.  Maybe you can figure it out and explain it to me.

According to CNN, President Obama has asked the Department of Health and Human Services to establish a rule that would prevent hospitals from denying visitation privileges to gay and lesbian partners.  I say this: unless there are consequences to hospitals and governmental offices behaving this way, nothing will change.  Mr. President, we need to see some consequences to follow your words.  Otherwise, words are pretty but empty.

Thank you, Rachel Maddow for doing what you do.  Ambassador to the US – Raymond Alcide Joseph speaks.  Please listen.

My question for today: When do the good Christians stop supporting the bad egg known as Pat Robertson?

I watched the author, Ms. Chimamanda Adichi speak on TED and her words were too good not to share.  After you watch this clip, fess up and tell me how it made you feel.

 

Recently, I asked the fairies to write a post for me.  Those magical creatures had been my friends for a long time and I hadn’t asked them for any favors since I was seven.  As far as time was concerned, they owed me.  Because I’m a nice person, I didn’t want to bother them while they worked so I called up a friend and went out.

We went to the The Cambridge Theatre to see Chicago.  *coughs*  Even though our seats were in the nosebleed section, they were the best seats in the house. *coughs*   Seeing Chicago perked up my bored, can’t be bothered cells like I’d just had an injection of happy.  I saw gorgeous men and women in skimpy, tight fitting outfits doing leaps, bends and twirls while singing and dancing.  Yep. Just what the doctor ordered.  

When I got home, my contemplative fairies had not completed their task.  Because I’m kind, I left them to it and my friend and I took a  trip to Berlin. The food in Germany’s capital was delicious; the weather was warm (hot actually), and the people friendly. On my last day there, I visited the Berlin Wall.  The concrete structure is having a face/spirit lift, done by various artists, and is a reminder that no matter how bad the destruction, our spirit will still soar.

As you can see, a little bit of culture never hurts.  *even the lazy fairies agree* 

Some say the fight about health care in the USA is really about racism while others say it is probably not about racism, because … Clinton wasn’t treated so well either.

Tim Wise, a prominent anti-racist writer and educator writes that racism is indeed a driving force behind the outpouring of anger we’ve been seeing at the various town halls around the country (USA), in opposition to health care reform and pretty much all things Obama.   To read his three points, visit Tim Wise here.

Tim Valentine writes his comments on people saying ‘its not always about race’ when explaining the on-going behavior at town hall meetings.  He asks, ‘if it isn’t about race, then what reason would anyone have to bring or tear up a poster of Rosa Parks?  To read more, visit Tim Valentine here.

 

One of the women thrown out by police tells what happened.


 

You be the judge.  Is it racism or simply political disagreement at its finest?  Did Bill Clinton experience the same type reaction from his American public?   Is there a really good reason for Americans to not want all Americans to have health care?

My opinion:  I’m in the group that says its racism.

Today is my Birthday and I wanted to share something with you.   Watch as I cross my legs, light a candle and burn incense while looking pios. riiiight. (actually…I’m eating cake and about to go out for a crepe and a beer…but you get the picture. 🙂  

I’ve trekked through life, searching for a guru to explain wtf of my existence. If you’ve been reading my blog and About Me, you will have an inkling of what I’m talking about.   

I was told.  *rings bell* “Before we are born, we choose our ethnicity, our gender/sex, the country we are born etc.  We choose so we may have the experiences needed to return to The Source.”  

My response was, “What a crock.  If I had to choose, I would have been born a rich, blonde haired, blue eyed, white man.  Only an idiot would choose otherwise.”

Ladies and gentlemen, perhaps the guru was right.  I can honestly say that I would not have made the impact on my surroundings if I had been born anyone other than who I am.  

Today, I celebrate my Birthday and I am awed by my choice. Namaste. *bows*

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate you.

Professor Chris Knight was suspended by the University of East London after his G20 comment was labeled a ‘threat’.  See Timesonline.

Years ago, when I researched the historical and cultural impact of menstruation, I met the anthropologist, Professor Chris Knight. His research is priceless and is not being produced by any other anthropologist in the world – as far as I know. As a woman, I was happy that someone was finally saying that women and menstruation is the basis for our evolution – and tells how and why.  For his valuable contribution to science, to history, to women and to the world, I offer my support. After getting to know Professor Knight personally, I also offer my support  because he is a decent, kind and good man who seeks a world of fairness for all.  In my book, that is never a bad thing. 

I have just read and signed the online petition:

“Reinstate Chris Knight “

which is hosted on the web by PetitionOnline.com  I personally agree with what this petition says, and I think you might agree, too. If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider signing yourself.

 Thanks for your support in reinstating Professor Chris Knight.

Thank you cyan for keeping me posted.
