21st Century Lesbian Trailer Trash

These are the mad musings of a middle aged woman, dyke, nurse, poet. I have a dog, a cat, a mobile home, and delusions of grandeur.

The Return to Ignorance

Why don't we all just go back to the 17th century? We could return to the days before modern medicine. We could enjoy a life expectancy somewhere around 40 until we succumb to tuberculosis, pneumonia, or the Plague. We could expect to bury our children before they reach school age. And as women, we could live unfettered and free of the cares of owning property and voting.

Who needs washing machines, refrigerators, or supermarkets? Let's all live off the land and pump water outside in the dead of winter. We can have fun emptying the slop jars together. Everyone who wants to give up computers, telephones, cars, and fast food, check the box marked "yes."

I found this article on
God and Consequences this morning. The religious right (can we rechristen them the Religious Wrong?) wants to put the kabosh on a cervical cancer vaccine.

The stench of their fear of change and of anything different is covering our land like a cold, dark cloud. Some days I just cannot stand it.

The History channel had a segment on The Plague this past Sunday. Did you know that there were actually people who thought that by beating themselves they would avoid The Plague? I would explain more, but I don't have the time. Besides, you may know all about it anyway.

McDonald's has their 0.49 hamburger sale today. I'm glad McDonald's is around.

Take care.

The 'logic' in these conservatives thinking makes my blood boil! They LIKE having people fear death from sex...

Perhaps withholding this innoculation for fear of promiscuity is just the modern day version of stoning women who are impure.

I am building up a very BIG hate.
