White Sands Missile Range is one of four military installments in New Mexico that would see cutbacks if the federal budget sequestration goes into effect.
By Margaret Wright

With federal spending comprising more than 12 percent of our entire state GDP, New Mexico is among 10 states that could most acutely feel the effects of the impending national budget sequestration. http://nmcompass.com/2013/02/23/saturday-springboard-sequestration-coyote-kill-bill-leibovitz-at-okeeffe/

that sounds like some version of hell from Dante's inferno

Justice divine has weighed: the doom is clear.
All hope renounce, ye lost who enter here

Imagine coming home to McCain, every day for eternity..

I don't believe in hell.. I think it is merely the absence of heaven

both of which experiential states are fully accessible to
human beings whilst they are still alive. No need to
die to get there.

the questions we should be asking about the pearly gates

are they attached to walls?

if so, are they for keeping people out?
or keeping people in?

this reminds me of a story

(remember it's just a story)

A great proud and powerful king regularly gathered his
court, naturally comprised of noble subjects who
lavished him with adoration. One fellow in particular,
a favorite of the king, was a poet. His poems & songs,
eloquent, elaborate, in praise of the King, brought
his Majesty particular delight.

One afternoon a line from the song made everyone
gasp. "Oh King, you are so mighty, no one is more
powerful than you, you are more powerful than God."

This made everyone quite nervous. It seemed the
poet had crossed a dangerous line, comparing the
King to God, and all waited for the King's response.

"Greater than God?" Indeed, is it so? The King
looked around his court. "Anyone...?" Anxious

Bemused by his courtiers' terror, he called upon his
most favorite, the court Jester, loved for his wisdom
and humor.

But even the Jester was nervous. If he answered that
the King was not greater than God, his Majesty may be
insulted, which could cost him his head.

Thinkety-think-think went his clever brain.

"My King," he ventured, "I can not answer the
question for certain from my own knowledge. But I do
know there is one thing YOU can do, that even God can
not do."

The King leaned forward, eagerly, as did the entire
court. "Hmmm...?"

"Majesty, if you wish to banish someone from your
Kingdom, it is easily done. This is something God
can not do."

and everyone lived happily ever after, keeping
their heads and pride intact.

annoying cat syndrome

I love this kitty to pieces, he's the best cat ever except
for his most annoying persistent and loud whiny meow.

So annoying in fact that one of the other cats up and
clobbered him, just to get him to shut up.

Anyone have a good suggestion for teaching an
otherwise perfect cat to "use his words" ??

The only thing that works is if I grab him and pet
him and kiss and hug him for a long time.. but I'm
starting to feel used...

he was so cute when I adopted him, looked like this one:
