As any smart married woman knows, when something inexplicable happens and things are all fuggled up, it’s the husband’s fault! And so of course, I feel perfectly fine in pointing a finger toward the Contrarian for my current lapse in brain function.
For the second day in a row, nothing much seems to be rattling around in the old cranium. I have stated many times before that the mind has only so much space. The Contrarian continues to feel compelled to tell me all kinds of chit that I have no good use for.
I think it’s finally happened. I think I’m full, facts wise. I may not be able to think any more. This is both tragic for me, but deprives the world of my outstanding opinions on everything from soup to nuts.
Speaking of which, (soup that is) I’ve made a nice pot of leek-potato soup for dinner today. That’s that vichyssoise to you less than urbane folks. I also made a nice loaf of bread to eat it with. Ain’t I special? Apparently the brain doesn’t need a lot of operating space in order for me to create a feast.
So, I’ve been reading posts for a good while (after another bout of studying the Exodus story from a couple of scholarly sources). And, frankly it’s as bad as yesterday. It’s still all public options and Inhofe talking out of his butt that climate change is a hoax. Does that man have a mother? And if so, where is she with the bar of soap? Tiger is still deep in pooh these days, and it seems to get no better, but worse by the hour. I figure the big names are going to be pulling endorsements soon. Too bad, but not my concern.
Sarah got pelted by tomatoes yesterday. Guess not everyone is happy with the mooselady. Lots of weighing in on the fact that she continues to open her mouth and lose her mind publicly. It’s all delicious fun for most of us. Maybe you don’t believe in kicking dead horses, but I do.
Speaking of climate change, I just am confounded as I’ve said before, by those that continue to argue against it. I mean those that shill for the big energy companies and other major polluters, I get that. I never get the religious right taking that position. Trying to claim that you are willing to stake the future of your kids and grand kids on some verse in Genesis wherein “Yahweh promises never to cause the seasons to stop,” seems a rather thin basis for singing, “don’t worry, be happy” to me at least.
Returning to Sarah, she’s at it again. I usually like to have popcorn and a nice soda when I’m watching parents eating their own kind. She decided to jump on the bandwagon of those who have taken Mikey Huckabee to task for commuting that sentence. I guess she figured there was more opportunity to kiss the cheeks of her base by doing so.
I am no fan of the Huck, since I’m not prepared to have a president who eschews science in favor of fundamentalism when it comes to evolution, but really, it’s rather unfair to chastise the man for making a decision that seemed proper at the time. Unless of course, your basic attitude is that nobody should ever have a sentence commuted. There are plenty of types like that–most of them live in Texas last time I heard.
On the home front, our Senator Chuckie Grassley is being pushed to speak out against the Ugandan legislatures move to make homosexuality a crime, and and not just any crime. Life in prison for those caught being homosexual and execution for those caught being HIV positive. Chuck follows the cult called the “Family” in Washington and they have ties (great Jesus followers that they are) with the Ugandian legislature. So LGBT members are asking him to do the right thing and speak out on this atrocity. No word yet what he will do. No doubt he’s trying mightily to avoid the entire thing. Chuckie is up for re-election this next year and we all know that the game today is to out right wing the right wing.
On a total upswing, if you want to make this season a time you can feel proud of, then I urge you to visit this site and learn of all the ways you can donate, volunteer, and otherwise make the Christmas season truly the time of love it is meant to be. There are just tons of links to sites where you can spend your money and time doing worthwhile things around the globe.
As we speak, the snow is beginning to come in quite hard. This wouldn’t be so bad if the local weather jerks weren’t so giddy with anticipation. They get extra face time on the tube when the weather gets nasty, and this seems to be more important than the fact that I freakin’ hate this. But to be honest, I’m getting a bit giddy over the fact that I can have a “snow day” tomorrow too. I’m guessing that a walk tomorrow might be out of the question. Oh that is really a shame! Yeah, sure.
Okay, well if you happen to run into anything that appears to give me some brain extensions, please let me know. I’m looking for an exciting topic. Something that I can really have a go at. So keep your eyes open and your ear to the ground. If that helps.
