Teach Your Children Well...

Their fathers' hell did slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they pick's, the one you'll know by.

My daddy told me when I was a little girl that if I married a Republican he would disown me. I think I learned that lesson well. Matter of fact I learned it so well that I have been known not to enter into relationships with professed Republicans.

You see I'm not the first generation to be given the "Republican" ultimatum. This goes WAAAAY back on my paternal grandmas side. All the way back to my Great-Great Grandfather Wilson Daniel Kenzie. He was one of the soldiers called on to identify the body of John Wilkes Booth after he was burned out of Garrett's barn near Port Royal, Virginia. Funny thing was...
it wasn't Booth...and he knew it. But that's another story.

I suppose my point is that if you teach a child that something is so important that their family or country's security depends upon it ...well it becomes ingrained. So maybe, because of generations of distrust, I have become the liberal that I am.

Fortunately, The Christian right are
teaching their children well . Guess it will all balance out in the long-run, huh?

Perfection = Dumbass

"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."
-H.L. Mencken (1880-1956)

TARGET- Your friendly neighborhood drugstore...

Target has been having some problems with their online shopping in the past year. I think someone has figured out how to hack their website, much to our amusement. Evidently Target is now selling Crack AND Marijuana!

News briefs in the NYT and WP point out, however, that not everyone is so reverent about our commercial rituals. In Lafayette, La., iconoclasts glued the locks (paragraph 3) on about 30 stores, forcing hundreds of would-be shoppers to wait, in some cases until midmorning, as locksmiths were summoned.


Rich & Getting Richer Stealing From the Poor!

This is a funny little animated cartoon from SLATE -one of my favorite sources for political humor......

"Today's cartoon is a bit unusual. Our regular readerss will remember Peter Kuper, whose very tall "Topsy Turvy" strip ran as a weekly feature in the New York Daily News. Regrettably, Topsy Turvy is no longer around and we haven't seen much of Peter on our site in recent months, although he has been quite busy, doing "Spy vs. Spy" for Mad Magazine among other things. Peter sent me a cool Flash animation that you can see by clicking here "

** There are some "naughty" words, so check your volume!
