"Speak your mind, even if your voice shakes"

I don't know how many of you are Dixie Chicks fans, but I do know that most of you reading this are of the same political mind as myself. That being said, I feel like you may enjoy the latest single by the Chicks, "Not Ready to Make Nice"

With just the 30 second snippet from iTunes, I immediately bought the single and can't get it out of my head. I saw the powerful video yesterday and I can't begin to explain how many different ways the words to this song hit me; personally and politically. I fight tears every single time I play it.

You can hear the entire song on the Chicks website. The single is available for those of you with iTunes. The CD drops on May 23rd. I plan to buy several copies just because it feels right.

Country radio continues to try to ignore this group. This new single is being ignored by many.
If you hear the song and think it deserves to be played, make a call to your local country radio station and request it. It will only take you a minute and you can feel good about speaking up for people who are not afraid to speak their minds.

geez boys! get a room!

My goodness! For all the gay bashing at the White House, it sure seems like these two need to look into some sort of union ceremony or marriage in New England!

Good Riddance Scotty Boy!

For those four of you that read my blog, I submit to you a snippet of one of my favorite blogs. I have referred to Groomzilla on occasion and his site is one I check daily, but in case you haven't had a chance to go digging through his recent posts, this cut and paste will at least peak your curiosity to see what other gems are hidden within. Let me set the scene with a bit of info. Groomzilla and his partner, M., live in NYC and are preparing to marry in June in Wellfleet, MA.
For the past few months he has documented his many trials, tribulations, neurosis, paranoias, fears, and joys on his site. The following is the last paragraph of an entry that had the two of us in tears of hilarity. I smile every time I think about it.

"The upside of the story is that, between my crippled tooth and my prostatitis and my broken calf and my overwhelming addiction to fiber pills and my bad back, it is readily apparent that I will be the oldest gay groom to ever step foot in Wellfleet, a distinction which will surely land my photo below the fold on the front page of the Wellfleet Daily News as I am pulled down the aisle in a wagon, waving to the crowd and getting my frail arm tangled in my oxygen tubing, but waving all the same. Until I get a cramp, which will probably be about halfway down the aisle, at which point I'll need a nap and some Ensure pudding."
Doesn't this photo say it all?

"I hear the voices, and I read the front page and I know the speculation," the president said. "But I'm the decider, and I decide what's best. And what's best is for Don Rumsfeld to remain as the secretary of defense."
Anyone else notice the use of semantics here? He's telling us what is best for Donald Rumsfeld, not what is best for the country. Oooo he is so tricky...idiot

Ugh! This is exactly how I feel!
Everyday brings a new scandal regarding our leaders and we can't tear
ourselves away from "Survivor" long enough to sign a petition or leave
a voicemail for our representatives supporting some sort of action!

It's a game now. It's called "Exactly How Far Can I Go Before Anyone Notices"
What will it take? Does Bush need to be caught killing baby animals... doing
drugs...harboring fugitives...paling around with pedofiles...
Stick with me, I'll find one that sticks here somewhere.

Do you think that the expression on the lady's face next to Harry Taylor is due to a surprise squirt from the clown flower on her lapel?


Their media minion Faux News all but refused to cover the real story of the day and yet continued to demonize a member of Congress that they have been after for years. I mean, Cynthia McKinney can't even blow her nose correctly. Media Matters, like always,
tells the facts free of fauxism.
Keep it a topic! It's just what they don't want!

my new hero

Hopefully you heard the story yesterday of Harry Taylor, a NC business owner who not only had the nerve/gumption/strength to stand up to Bush, but did so in an eloquent, and composed manner.

I absolutely swelled with excitement and pride when I heard the exchange. PLEASE visit this link to read it for yourself. Astounding.

If you'd like to thank Harry this site has been established. Leave him a note. He did something that most of us wish we could do, but most likely will never get the chance. He represented us very well.

I had a conversation with someone today that is beginning to epitomize the very reason why I can't stand Republicans. Especially those that want to be all cool and have gay friends and pretend they are sooo accepting of others, not racist, not homophobic, blah blah blah...

This person, who I have always thought was pretty open-minded and generally someone on 'my' side when it came to civil rights for all, shocked the hell out of me in 2004 when I spotted a W sticker on her car. That was the first nail. Okay, I can understand that people have different views than myself. It's a bit hard to swallow the fact that those who claim to love me and my spouse can vote for a prick like Bush, but I am passed it.

For the second time today, I had a conversation with this person regarding "Brokeback Mountain". She has brought the movie up a couple of times probably because she can talk gayly about it with me. Again, today, she made the comment that she really liked the movie but the scene in the tent just really made her "sick", and if they had left it out she would have thought more of the movie and liked it better altogether. Now, not 10 minutes earlier she claimed how much she would love to watch "The L Word", but "Queer as Folk" was gross and she just couldn't stand to watch it. "I don't know, just something about two guys together is gross!"
No. You just want the cool points that go along with having gay friends, but by no means should we have any intimacy or affection toward each other. As long as we remain sexless, we are okay and free to be.
All this from someone who on more than one occasion has made coy/slutty remarks regarding the fact that she and her husband can hardly find time to have sex seeing as they have three kids. Woe is you. (BTW--Sex is how that shit keeps happening)
Okay, that grosses ME out! Why is it okay to talk to me about that, but think it's okay to criticize a movie that has every right to be seen and whose message desperately needs to be heard.
Same old shit. Different Republican.

WOW! What a set this girl has on her!

P!nk's new CD came out today. Pretty good so far. I know she is a bit rough, but I like her "I don't give a shit" attitude.
Track 5, "Dear Mr. President" illustrates this point VERY well. I had chills the first two times I heard it. You can order it from, or my favorite place of worship, Best Buy.

VERY worth a listen! I wish we had more people willing to speak up and say what we are all thinking on a daily basis.
Please tell me this is a joke.
Oh my.

Ding Dong Delay is Dead

What a day!
I wake up this morning to the wonderful news that the University of Florida Men's Basketball team is the new NCAA National Champion! Couldn't get any better right?

Oh no! It's Two for Tuesday, my friend!
Tom Delay is resigning from Congress!
Glory be!
In his off camera interview with Chris Matthews(idiot), Delay said this, among many other gems:

"I look forward to traveling the country and listening to conservatives, helping grassroots leaders to develop a unifying agenda and a strategy to enact it, to learn from past setbacks and build on our successes."
In other words, he plans on holding more Justice Sundays and relocating to Virginia where he can hang his head in shame far from the overly redistricted state of Texas.

"The Abramoff affair has nothing to do with me."
Not yet, but can you hear them nipping at your heels? All of your aides are dropping like flies, and pleading guilty. I'm sure they will do all they can to protect you...right.

Today was a good day.
