New Stuff

An ancient Chinese curse is "May you live in interesting times." The first time I heard it many decades ago, I was a tad confused by it. Today we're living it and I understand it completely. If times get any more interesting, I might just have a breakdown and I don't think I'm alone in that. Here are some of the most interesting things I've seen lately:

* In the wake of Virginia's intrusive vaginal probe laws, State Senator Nina Turner (D-Cleveland) of the great State of Ohio, introduced Ohio Senate bill 307 in the Ohio Senate. Several other women legislators have proposed variations in Virginia and Here's the the short video -- there are long versions on YouTube:

I saw "Game Change" -- the story of Sarah Palin and the 2008 election -- the other
and it was horrifying and fascinating all at once. Word on it is that it's well-rooted in truth -- check out YouTube for interviews. Here's the trailer:

Last night I attended a screening of "The Road We've Traveled" -- Obama's campaign film -- at our county's Democratic Party's headquarters. I made lots of new friends
and was gratified to see and meet many enthusiastic elders eager to participate in the campaign. If nothing else, I'm gonna have fun this fall -- I love campaigning and meeting new friends. The movie is very well done and showcases President Obama's accomplishments as well as the many problems of the the past four years as one would expect. It's short -- less than twenty minutes. I checked and it's on YouTube as I type this and y'all can see it here. The Republicans -- Wow! What a shock! -- are already calling it 'a deception'.

That's it for today -- I'm off to lunch with one of my new pals! I'll be around to visit y'all later!!!!

Have great day!!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!


Have great day


  1. "I sooo don't wanna go back to Alaska." That's it in a nutshell. I've gotta see this film.

    There should be laws severely limiting access (or prohibiting, at the very least, payment by an insurance company) to surgery and paraphanalia that "treat" impotence, too!

    P.S. And the note "from a sexual partner" should be required to give permission for the guy to take blue pills - not just to attest to his dysfunction!

  3. I'm so glad you're getting so involved and meeting new friends
    you go girl!

  4. Hear! Hear! What a great idea Ohio Senate bill 307 is! And I really loved Game Plan. We were spared that time; let's hope the luck will continue through 2012! It did seem to set a different tone for Republicans, though. Whoever says this country doesn't harbor racism is kidding themselves! Did you see that video made in the south by Nancy Pelosi's daughter?!!!

  5. I'm gonna relocate back to Ohio so I can vote for Senate Bill 307! Let's get that bill introduced in U.S. Congress if they monkey around in Washington any more.

    Will be interested to see Game Change if I can muster the courage to listen again to what I probably already know about that fiasco.

    I look forward to checking out the Obama video later.

  6. Hmmm one piece of tyranny to combat another .What is happening to the Great Republic?

    GFB--If you know a better way of getting the attention of those who support intrusive government (if only for women), please share it. Reasoned, soft-shoe exposition doesn't seem to work. Asymmetric "battles" are difficult.

  8. Sarah Palin scares me because too many people thought she should be president.

    I've been enjoying Doonesbury lately as he tackles this issue.

  9. I was very impressed by Game Change. Sarah is one scarey and crafty lady and I hope she does not make a run for the party's nomination. How about this for a Republican ticket Sarah and Rush!!!!!
