      I didn't realize until lately that the whole area in question already houses strip clubs, fast food joints, etc… Why would we allow those things at 'sacred' ground, but not a religious community center? 

       

      I think I smell some rats…

          Oh yeah…the very site of the proposed Community Center is across the street from a 'Gentleman's Club' directly across the street. Maybe they'd rather have "The Dove Outreach Center" there. 

          I see now how The Donald has offered to buy this broken down piece of real estate in an effort to end the furor. Maybe he'll open his own Gentleman's Club and they'll do a reality show out of it

          Today I'm gonna try to ignore all the crazy religious nuts and insane media and crackers who think Obama is a Muslim.

          I'm gonna just.. spend a few minutes in silent praise of Judge Virginia Phillips, who has ruled the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell Policy" illegal. A tiny beam of reason in a world gone mad.

          :)

          How's married life treatin' you?

              Hey Dian!  It's nice to see a little sanity here and there, thank goodness…

               

              Married life is going fine :)  We're still trying to find our groove in the house together – I am terribly used to living alone! – but it's getting easier as time goes on.   He really is a sweetheart and I'm thankful we found each other.

               

              What's this about you and the girls traveling about the country?!

                  I don't think these people realize how ridiculous they are…and how they are being manipulated by the likes of Mr. Boehner and the Republicans working the *lines* to keep their sacred cow topics in the limelight. These idiots only care about re-election and party control — they will use anyone and anything to reach their goal.

                  They don't give a rat's ass about Ground Zero, Muslims or evangalistic voters. They will use all of it  to get what they want ( even if some of them have to pretend not to have gay sex with each other- ha! THAT really is my favorite abuse of all! – mind you, *I* don't have a problem with homosexuality at all :)

                  Utter the word Muslim and some pot-bellied hayseed will point his pitchfork to the sky and agree with whatever the Republican politician wants him to…gotta hand it to the RNC AND the religious right…they have figured out the certain words that turn off the brains of their constituants!

                      Cyn..I guess I'll cover the travel in another post..I need to update the adventures of Mean Joe too…

                      Glad you've found room in your closet for the sweetheart. I was just telling my best friend yesterday that I am still unable to really understand men, even with my advanced age and experience…

                        Ha! I just remembered someone here used to call her little belly pooch..".the pot-roast" – so cute! As you well know ( from my copious emails the last two months detailing every diet  fact ), my weight loss, while enviable, is super goal oriented, brutally achieved and probably unhealthy. I WILL fit into a certain size before the wedding so that I am not forever immortalized in print as the blob known as Mom. My family trials and tribulations have wreaked havoc on my person – but  that is OVER ! Of course, I'm running around like a  junkie with the shakes, but I don't care- it's working and fast. That's my diet.

                        YOU of all people don't understand men? Yikes, there's no hope for the rest of us. Although…I think I DO understand men – hate them and just  pretend to forget all about it to quell my instinct to rid the planet of the gender or cage them like Zsa Zsa in Queen from Outer Space

                          I got the most on point explanation of the difference between men and women in a recent email. I don't think I shared it with you ladies…. here it is:

                           

                           

                                    Her Diary:

                          Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much. I asked him what was wrong; He said, 'Nothing.' I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior I don't know why he didn't say, 'I love you, too.' When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore.  He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent.  Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. To my surprise, he responded to my caress, and we made love. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep – I cried. I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.

                            I really liked that! Sadly, it's the truth.

                            I think there just needs to be a Library of Men. Women could live peacefully until they think they just need to have a man for some reason – maybe even just to clean out the gutters, although some women do like to 'read' more than others. Anyway, they could then check out the appropriate model, and return them when they're finished.

                            Believe me, there would rarely be any late fees. They'd all be properly returned well before the due date.

                                                    Another good one that just ended its long run is called  Corner Gas.  Kids in the Hall I loved that, and would tune in each week.  How they got away with certain types of humour back in the day always amazed me.  Now Cynthia dear…hmmm Trailer Park Boys…..  (bubbles?)  I had too much cringing at words but it was very famous and I would say loads of viewers loved it.  (I think my burly man used to as well)

                                                     

                                                    If you get a chance to watch say from season one of little mosque on the prairie do so.  Its about a wee town in our praire province of Saskatchewan.  basically WASP.  Main church group is Anglican, and they end up renting space to a group of Muslims who need a mosque.

                                                     

                                                    The Imam is a young upwardly mobile young lawyer from Toronto who leaves his bewildered parents (sucessful professionals) to take up the calling of Allah and finds hiimself leading this group in this town.  It is really funny and became a hit.  The young woman who wrote it has been on our CBC along with most of the cast at one time or another, and even on radio interviews I see the great humour which abounds. 

                                                     

                                                    Ah where has the TV humour gone?  my burly guy loves that show  2 1/2 men.   TSK TSK says I! hahha  I also loved watching Red Green as well.  Possum lodge.  fav sketch was what he does with duct tape.  hahah he and Harold!!

                                                      Oh, I forgot about Corner Gas!  I really liked that one, too – and I know what you mean about Trailer Park Boys (lots of words to make someone cringe, and situations, too!) but I did laugh out loud sometimes.  And I loved their opening, the music went so well with the trailer park :)

                                                       

                                                      I'll have to see if I can find the Little Mosque on the Prairie and check it out.

                                                            I'd love to see that show, Bonnie Lea – I love your Canadian shows!  I used to watch "The Red Green Show" all the time, and I've been telling Burly Man I wanted him to see an episode (they show it on our public tv). 

                                                             

                                                            I also used to watch Trailer Park Boys and laughed in spite of myself :)

                                                            THE BURNING OF THE BRAS  ya ya I am grumpy sore, and miserable why you ask? well….I am wearing a sports bra right now, (nothing to stuff in it)  but need to hold the surgical dressings from the other day. 

                                                            So Ground Zero, is surrounded by Strip Clubs?  does the donald own them too?
