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.

Crazy Quilt

I am home sick today. Except it's not a virus. It's more like an "I'm sick of your nasty attitudes and childish demands and I refuse to let you give me a stroke" day. Everyone ought to take at least one of those every six months.

Actually, I will spend part of the day working at home on the May schedule which has become the bane of my existence.

But this is not what I came here to write about.

Sangroncito got me started this morning with his post about Brazil's happy emancipation from oil:

Brazil is celebrating a milestone this year: it is virtually energy independent, and may never again have to depend on foreign petroleum imports to meet its domestic needs. Are you listening, fellow Americans? This bonanza comes from the most unlikely of sources, and one that Brazil grows in abundance: sugar cane, which is converted into ethanol.

And wouldn't you know that the United States has its own potential ethanol producing crop. Corn. My Uncle Fred would have been thrilled. It might have saved the farm.

Capitol Hill Blue also posted an article on the oil monopoly and possible fixes, including the ethanol solution. It took Brazil only 20 years to gain their freedom. With our government having its hands in the pockets of those big business interests, it will probably be the Twelfth of Never before we find ourselves free of the oil cartels.

Under the category of Can't We All Just Get Along?

Bitch PhD sent me over to an Albany Times editorial written by 2 democrats on opposite sides of the abortion debate. Harry Reid and Hillary Rodham Clinton had this to say:

As two senators on opposite sides of the abortion debate, we recognize that one side will not suddenly convince the other to drop its deeply held beliefs.

And we believe that, while disagreeing, we can work together to find common ground. We believe that it is necessary for all Americans to join together and embrace policies that will reduce the number of unintended pregnancies, decrease abortions and improve access to women's health care.

There is no question that the rate of unintended pregnancy is too high in the United States.

Half of the 6 million pregnancies each year in this country are unintended, and nearly half of these unplanned pregnancies end in abortion. It doesn't have to be this way.

If only we could get more people on board with this sort of thinking.

Under the heading of I Just Can't Take it Anymore:

Wrong wing, hate mongering Michelle Malkin has her very own website in support of miscreants, troglodytes, philistines, and other rabid Americans who just say "Kill the bastards and be done with it" along with their morning prayers to Jesus. Malkin is famous for referring to feminists as UNHINGED. You can google her to find it. I'm not posting a link to that.

People of Malkin's ilk are the ones who bring you How To Trash a 15 Year Old Girl Who Dares to Have an Opinion Other Than Their Own. Some of the following comments are nasty and profanity laden. Don't read it if you have a weak stomach.

Animation Producer Gets Ugly Slurs
The Progressive
By Matthew Rothschild
April 24, 2006

Ava Lowery is a fifteen-year-old who lives in Alabama. She calls herself a peace activist, and for the past year, she’s been producing her own short animations on her website, peacetakescourage.com. All in all, she’s made about seventy of them, she says, and most of them oppose Bush and his Iraq War.

These are quotes from some of the e-mails she received after entering one of her animation shorts in a contest.

"It’s people like you who need to fucking die and get raped while your corpse rots in the sun. Fuck you, I would jack off on your parents if I could. If you don’t like the team, get out of the park. That means take ur small dick and get the fuck off of my homeland you faggot chocolate gulper.”

“You are a TRAITOR to your country and should be executed for treason. All you do is bitch about the US. If you hate it so much, why don’t you GET THE FUCK OUT.”

“Why don’t you go masterbate [sic] to a pic of Sheehan and fuck off.”

“Are you a muslem [sic] terrorist?”

Wow! I wanna be that erudite and insightful when I grow up.

Thanks for linking me!

Michelle Malkin sickens me. I just want to smack her every time I see her on Fox New (not that I watch Fox News, mind you, but sometimes while I'm channel surfing between cable news I stop in my tracks at Faux News just to learn how the enemy is thinking these days...after a few minutes I get sick to my stomach and I switch channels).
