Democratic party leaders will continue to welcome anti-choice candidates. Really?

I call BS on this. As my grandmother would say, you stand for something or you fall for everything.


Cure for Leprosy

just ran across this in my cache of Bible science. In case you need the cure for Leprosy:

Leviticus 14 (KJV)
"4 Then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed two birds alive and clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:
5 And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an earthen vessel over running water:
6 As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the cedar wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water:
7 And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let the living bird loose into the open field.
8 And he that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean: and after that he shall come into the camp, and shall tarry abroad out of his tent seven days.
9 But it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall shave all his hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he shall shave off: and he shall wash his clothes, also he shall wash his flesh in water, and he shall be clean.
10 And on the eighth day he shall take two he lambs without blemish, and..."

cake for thought

So Iíve just made a spectacular birthday cake for my sister and Iím smiling as I take my bowl of leftover buttercream frosting to my lovely stainless steel sink and begin to use tons of dishwashing soup and gallons of water to run the stuff down my state-of-the-art garbage disposal to go somewhere I never think about, and then suddenly I AM thinking.

Iím thinking about all the women in the world who canít bake a fancy cake. About those who struggle to even feed their families. About all the women in the world who donít even have clean water. And Iím not smiling anymore. And I realize, again, why I canít believe in anybodyís God.

How to Write a Holy Text

is one of the chapters in my forthcoming book. Brain picking here from my peeps. What would YOU think that essential elements should be? Please. Make me laugh.

This, THIS is what we should be worrying about

Everything is a distraction from something much, much worse

The administration is repealing consumer and environmental protections left and right. The Education Department is making it easier for for-profit colleges to defraud students. The Environmental Protection Agency has delayed an air pollution rule that the agency had determined would likely prevent the poisoning of children.

The Trump deregulatory team is rife with former lobbyists and others who have conflicts of interest. President Trump and his family members likewise appear to be financially benefiting from his role in the White House.

Yet fussing over regulatory decisions and vaguely sleazy behavior is itself a distraction from an even more important issue: the fact that Republicans are trying to remake one-sixth of the U.S. economy, largely in secret, while ripping health insurance away from 22 million Americans.

Theyíre laying out changes opposed by insurers, providers and patient advocacy groups. They are doing so with no hearings and no expert input, and reportedly with a scheme to sideline the one neutral referee of the lawís potential impact, the Congressional Budget Office. Attention must be paid!
