WTF???? So women volunteering to serve our country are considered "whores"....

Really? Is that how these right wingers think???!!! No wonder I was raped and so many women are raped in the military. Although, men are raped in the military, too...but the percentage of women experiencing sexual assault in the military is horrifyingly high, and I have to wonder if this attitude, if widespread, is a contributing factor to that. You know, a desire to punish women for their choice to serve.

It feels really good to be able to do something kind for someone else.

I've come to realize, that makes me happier than anything I could own.

Today I did a RAOK and left money to pay for whoever was next in the grocery line. At stores that allow me to donate to the food bank, I always do so.

Today I supported DU and I also contributed to a blogger I enjoy reading, Frank Schaeffer at Patheos.

Every small act I can do to light a light and fight the darkness gives me hope. I believe in my fellow human beings. If enough of us light that spark, I truly believe we can change things.

Every kind act is spitting in the face of the Koch brothers and other forces of darkness.

What kind acts do you do, that make you happy?

A DU'ers post was referenced in an article on Patheos, by Frank Schaeffer!

In case anyone wants to see, here is the link:


I don't know, I was just reading the blog and all of a sudden, there is a post from DU! I thought that was kind of cool and wanted to share.

For Robin, may he RIP.

I care a lot about homeless vets

I just don't see how tearing down the General Officers helps the cause any.

My brother was a homeless vet. Didn't have him living with me because 1. He has a bad problem with alcoholism and 2. He raped me repeatedly when I was a kid. But mostly reason #1. He steals and destroys any living space he is in.

I thank my higher power he is currently sober at a long-term VA facility he has been in for the past 8 months. They will also pay for him to go back to school and become an LPN. They are taking care of his dental problems and medical problems too.

Why didn't he take advantage of that program earlier? He wanted to keep drinking. He would rather be homeless and drink than be there and not allowed to drink. He only goes when the law gives him the choice of that or prison.

He does well in the program then when they set him up with a job and a car and a room and then let him go free, he goes back to drinking. Again and again.

But they always pick him up again and try to help him. I'm grateful for that.

I do care about homeless vets, a great deal.

I guess I wonder why a neurologist needs to know those things in order to treat me for MS.

The only interaction I want from doctors is for them to order appropriate tests, inform me of results, prescribe needed medications like the Copaxone I shoot up daily.

I will describe troubling symptoms to them, of course, but I have no desire to be "friends" with any doctor.

That's what I meant by "not letting them in."

I despise doctors who treat me as if I were a child they can manipulate with fake friendliness.

True. But I'm thinking, there are equally bad posts left standing at say, free republic,

And we don't go there and bang our heads trying to respond to those.

If DU is a lost cause for women, I keep coming to the conclusion, it's time for me to walk away. It makes me sad but I don't see any way of making DU a place where those of us who care about feminist issues can remain free of coordinated attacks. For me at least, the attacks are extremely upsetting and I lose my cool. For me, DU has become a place where I don't feel safe.

The Dominionist movement has got to be stopped.



As Huffington Post reported earlier this month, “It turns out that Ted’s father, Rafael Cruz, is a pastor with Texas charismatic ministry Purifying Fire International who has been campaigning against Obamacare the last several months.”

According to New Beginnings’ dominionist pastor, Larry Huch, Ted Cruz got elected to the senate because God is about to begin his “rule and reign” and there will be a big “end-time transfer of wealth.” Somehow, transfering wealth is a good thing when the money is being taken from non-believers and awarded the church but bad if rich folks and corporations are expected to pay their way.

End of Snippet, more at link.

They want most of us to die already. Starving preferred, as a starving person

Is lethargic and less of a threat.

They know exactly what they are doing. They want NO government aid and almost NO ONE making a living wage because they want most of us to die.

It is just more convenient and less costly for them to kill us via starvation rather than the gas chambers.
