I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Wednesday Wanderings

Franken Continues to both surprise and delight me! Al Franken gave an interview about his feminist beliefs. Beside being well articulated and thoughtful, Al raise a much larger question of why women don't have more truly wonderful feminist roll models in literature. Off hand I can think of a couple but as Al pointed out, there is a void. My favorite part of the interview is when asked the whimsical question of which one feminist he'd pick if going on a desert island. He didn't even have to give it thought, it was his wife Franni all the way...
A Sign from G*d?
A six story statue of Jesus in Monroe, Ohio, was struck by lightning and burned to the ground...The landmark stood since 2004 at the evangelical Solid Rock Church...The founder of the church said he was trying to help people, not impress them, with the statue. It was to be a beacon of hope and salvation...enuff said, obviously a sign or omen...there's no more hope...give it up, just saying-)

Do I Seem Stupid?
I love non medically trained men (representatives) who want to make my health care decisions for me. After all, I'm just an educated adult women who has a family and medically trained doctor/staff. Thank goodness for mandated biased counseling, burdensome waiting periods so they can hope to change my mind, imposed costly and unnecessary clinic regulations, required parental notifications and consent, restricted funding, and support medical pro lifers to limit my health care...NOT!

So while making it almost impossible to obtain an abortion, they have done little of nothing to provide women with support needed to not have unwanted children (free contraceptives) or support to raise their family.

Minnesota is no exception, when faced with unprecedented cuts, those most likely to be cut include women and children in programs like public health, nutrition, early childhood, and K-12 education...yeah tell me again how you are pro-life and not just pro-fetus, anti-women?

Save BP, Save the Queen...
I find it so funny that the GOP want to blame Obama for the BP spill...why not the Queen of England...after all it is British Petroleum?   Ah, but that doesn't mean there isn't room of a lot of improvement in energy policy and procedures...And just how are we going to recover from the spill while ensuring it never happens again...can anyone really tell me?

And oh yeah..BP sucks (as the sing along youtube below) but how many grandmas used gasoline to get to the pier, and heat their house and use other numerous oil products...just saying...singing is nice but we (America) still use 20% of the world supply of oil while only providing for 2% of it. Want change? Stop using oil...then we will all have something to sing about!
