So...Mike Michaud is Gay.

Yawn!

Up here in Maine, we've been governed by temper tantrum and bullying since January of 2011. Our quality of life, education and environment have suffered while our "business friendly" teabagger chief executive, who entered office with a whopping 38% of the vote, has failed miserably in creating any significant number of quality jobs. While doing this, he has managed to make Maine a laughing stock nationally nearly every time he's opened his mouth. He has publicly expressed the same contempt for 47% of Maine people that his boy Willard Romney holds.

His wife claims Florida as her main residence.

I haven't always agreed with all of Mike's votes, but he has ALWAYS represented us with honor and integrity. I believe that he will do his utmost to make Maine be, again,the wonderful place that my wife and I decided to make our home when we were on our honeymoon.

A few days ago, before I knew he was gay, I supported Mike Michaud for Governor of Maine with enthusiasm and passion.

Today, knowing that he is gay, I support Mike Michaud for Governor of Maine with enthusiasm and passion.

He continues to show the cowards who try to smear him with push polls and whispering campaigns just EXACTLY what a real man is.

I am more proud of Mike Michaud today than I have ever been...and that's saying something!

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!

PEACE!

This is a cross post from GD.

GOOD NEWS!

My wife was recalled to her job today after the Feds reopened. Our dear Governor LePage didn't have to lay her office off, but he did so in a worthless show of teabagger solidarity. We'll continue to remember this as we work for Mike Michaud to send his temper-tantruming ass back to Florida next year.

PEACE!

Hi! My wife is being kinda recalled from the teabaggers' shutdown.

My lovely wife of 15+ years was laid off last Monday. She is a Maine state worker but her department if fully funded by the Feds, so she was laid off when Ted Cruz decided to kick his little temper tantrum into the high moron gear.

Yesterday, she and several others in her office were offered the opportunity to fill open positions in other state offices until the shutdown is over. It's a lower rate of pay, but it's also a full time job, which will pay a hell of a lot more than if she'd been collecting unemployment.

Are we still immensely pumped off at Ted Cruz & his merry band of House teabagger morons? Yes.
Are we going to remember this totally unnecessary fiasco perpetrated by the stupidest congressional caucus since the copperheads? Yes.
Are we going to be advocating long and loudly for every teabagger to get his/her ass thrown out of office in their next election? Yes!
Are we going to be equally loud in linking EVERY SINGLE Republican to this teabagger movement that they so wholeheartedly embraced not so long ago? Yes.
Are we still going to consider our loudmouthed, crude, obnoxious and not very bright teabagger governor to be a malignant pimple on the ass of our state even though he has recalled some of the workers that his buddies in congress threw out of work? Hell, yes.
Are we still very pumped off about these damned baggers and their "government by temper tantrum" and NO to everything that is Obama view of their Fox "News" world? HELL YES!

Is our anger about this going to go away ANYTIME soon? No.
Are we going to forget that there are still some 800.000 people whose livelihoods are endangered by these morons who are still collecting THEIR paychecks while working out in their "kept open by John Boehner" private gym? HELL NO!

I just thought I'd share. Thank you for reading.

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!

PEACE!

Good Evening, teabagging morons. Please allow me to express my deepest thanks!

Because of YOUR government shutdown, my wife is being furloughed starting tomorrow and ending either when the most childish group of bozos ever to serve in Congress decides to end it's collective temper tantrum, OR when the weakest and most ineffective House Speaker ever decides to stand up to the loons in his caucus and allow a straight up vote to put the government back to work. WOW!

Are you members of the teabagger caucus getting YOUR paychecks on time? We working people are VERY concerned for YOUR well being as we worry about paying our mortgages during your hissy fit!

As we watch the mess of your government shutdown, which is so silly that it makes Newt Gingrich's 2 temper tantrum motivated shutdowns of the 90s look like well reasoned strategies, please allow me to suggest a slogan for your fiasco..."WE BUILT THIS"!

Once again, THANK YOU, teabaggers!

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!

PEACE!

If you like musicals as much as I do,...

...than catch "The Phantom f the Opera", a 25th anniversary performance from Albert Hall in London. It was SPECTACULAR! The show is a little more than 2 hours. We turned it off because e didn't want to hear a 20+ minute speech by Andrew Lloyd Webber afterwards, but the actual show was just astonishing frm start to finish! Take a couple of hours and enjoy!

BTW, this is on Netflx streaming.

PEACE!

Something really ticks me off at the coverage of Diana Nyad's accomplishments.

Of course, if I wrote a thread about what the media does RIGHT, it may well be a 30 words or less thread.

IMHO, Diana Nyad is one of the greatest athletes ever in any sport. She accomplished a feat at age 64 that surpassed remarkable. At the same time that I've been saying that the calandar is catching up to Roger Federer, my favorite male tennis player, at the age of 32 (half Diana's age).

Today, I woke up to see stories on the web, probably written by 300+ pound "journalists" who were eating jelly doughnuts as they typed, stating that according to Diana Nyad's own swim timer, she isn't swimming as fast as she did in the 1970s. Shit!

Big frickin' whoop! Does freakin' ANYBODY do anything as fast as we did in the 1970s? I sure as hell don't!

Are there really sports writers out there so determined to shit all over something great that they stoop to saying that a great 64 year old swimmer is a little slower than she was as a great late 20s/early 30s swimmer? I call BULLSHIT!

If there is something that an athlete does wrong, than go git'em! Slowing down a little after 40 years? PUH-LEEZ!

If this is in the wrong forum, I apologize, but I seem to remember Diana Nyad coming out a few years ago. If I'm mistaken, than at least I'm sharing this in one of my favorite places in DU!

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!

PEACE!

If you're looking for a really enjoyable show,...

...than check out "Wild at Heart" on Netflix streaming.

It's an English show about a vet and his family who become partners in taking over and restoring a South African game preserve. At first I was a little reluctant, expecting an all too sweet kiddie show. However, it's quite entertaining and enjoyable and much more mature than I ever expected it to be. Check it out and let me know what you think.

PEACE!

My family and I had a WONDERFUL day yesterday because of, believe it or not, teabaggers!

My wife, son & I are playing host this week to my mother-in-law & my wife's cousin who, like my wife, are Puerto Rican. We are also hosting our son's Godmother whom, like our son, is African American. In our group, I'm the only white person. We live up here in Maine, AKA Vaationland, and the 2nd whitest state in the union after Vermont.

The reason I give you our ethnic make up is to tell you the following story. When our godmother & my wife's mother visit, they MUST have lobster! We went to their favorite lobster restaurant yesterday for their lobster dinner. My mother-in-law, wife and her cousin were speaking Spanish, because my mother in law doesn't believe that her English is as goo as it actually is. My wife's cousin brings a one woman party with her wherever she goes, so they weren't being quiet, contributing lots of giggles & laughs to the atmosphere. My son & his Godmother would make George Zimmerman's trigger finger itch on sight. It was a lovely Maine early evening in a small coastal town with a family enjoying each other's company.

About 30 minutes into our meal, I noticed a family of tourists from New Jersey (according to their t-shirts) at a table that was across from ours. The father and mother kept giving us dirty looks. I was almost going to suggest that we pipe down a little when I noticed the father's t-shirt from a 2009 teabagger rally. I realized that our volume had nothing to do with their displeasure, but the Spanish speaking and the blackness was what was offending them. After realizing this, I was just SOOO delighted that we were RUINING the meal of these stupid and racist teabaggers simply by enjoying each other's company. I don't know if I've ever said this before, but I consider the animosity of teabaggers to be as sweet as a compliment from someone I actually respect.

If this seems a bit harsh, than maybe it's a logical result of the hateful conduct of the entire teabagger movement over the last 4+ years, when they've proven themselves to be a totally detestable people. I'd never act the way that they do, but if my family and I could turn a $100+ meal to bile in their stomaches simply by having a meal and enjoying ourselves, than WAAHOOOO!

PEACE!

The true difference between liberals and conservatives/teabaggers.

I've said this before, but I think that bears repeating given the state of lunacy we're seeing from the other side.

Liberals will spend hours debating whether 4 is 2 + 2 or 1 + 3.

Conservatives will go to their hourly teabagger rallies, hear the speaker/screamer/screecher proclaim that 2 + 2 = 3, and then yell that anyone who says different is a traitor, communist, nazi, socialist, is committing treason, etc., ad infinitum! They will genuinely believe it, too!

PEACE!
