Get the Brooms Out!!!

Can you say unbelievable, even unprecedented! The Dems took the house and swept the old dodgers out!!! I feel a sense of optimism a feeling of being lifted out of an old dusty gloom to that of clarity and focus. Finally people in offices that get it, that rule by common sense and not back door politicking and trickery of the general populace. Things can get done the right way, more money for low paid people, proper education and enough of this stupid wall to fence out Mexico, waste of the tax payers money! Now we have clear level heads to run the show. Rumsfeld has resigned - humm I wonder why, the first female speaker of the House! God Damned I couldn't dream up a better outcome, after the disappointing Presidential Elections, this is like Xmas come late. Even dumbass Rick Santorum lost his seat, the proverbial Bush ass kisser! ha ha Get the brooms ready folks - Sweep 'em out!!

Life Can Be Hideous

Got another bad e-mail today and it seems that along with losing a father, my friend also lost her younger uncle. So in one day - actually within hours June lost a husband of 36 years and a brother. Why is life so cruel at times. I do not know.

This Strange Walk

Today a little more of my past melted away - my friend sent me an e-mail that read R.I.P Robin Gale and I froze. You see Mr. Robin Gale was Uncle Robin for me, my childhood friend's father, father figure and friend to me. As I read the e-mail I almost became catatonic. My mind shot back to all those birthday parties, back in 1979, '80, '81, '82 all the fun. He was a nice guy he was a fun person, one that you could go and shoot the breeze with, laugh with, make a fresh joke or 2 with. A kind person. That house was like a 2nd home for me, an extension of my home. I remember going there anytime I wanted, going thru the amazing record collection, Minnie Riperton, Teddy Pendergrast, Earth Wind & Fire and on and on, just mining that collection for much loved music. I remembered how I would go and hijack the TV to look at music videos because they had a satillite and all the MTVs and he loved to watch the racy gals in videos and we would laugh at his comments. To hear that he had what seems like a massive heart attack and died just slid right out of life was difficult to process. Its like it didn't happen. I think I somehow feel that life would always stay the same after I left. I guess everything froze in time for me mentally but it really moved on and things are changing a little too fast for me I guess.
I hadn't spoken to him in a while but he was a dear friend in my heart. It just made me think of how so many of my friends parents had passed since I've moved here. And we're still in our 30's, so many parents not getting to see their kids turn 40 or even 35. This year was Millie and now it seems like I'm sending another sympathy card again, remembering times past and an individual that someway was a part of my childhood experience. It makes one think of one's own mortality and the walk that we seem to take in this life, we're born, we grown we move through time and space and then something happens and we're not here anymore, just gone. As we walk this strange walk called life. Its times like this you really wish you could've held on to those long lost moments a little longer, 5mins more on that "happy birthday" maybe an hour or 2 longer with that conversation - just another moment more before you go.

Blastin' Out the Closet

Sins are indispensable to every society organized on an ecclesiastical basis; they are the only reliable weapons of power; the priest lives upon sins; it is necessary to him that there be sinning.
(Friedrich Nietzsche)

They're soon gonna have to start a new magazine for folks who aren't celebrating coming out the closet but instead being blasted unceremoniously out by scandal and exposure. First up out the front door was good old Gov McGreevy and after that well we had Sen. Foley, ousted or more appropriatly outed from the closet by his salacious e-mails to young Pages, with dreamy fantasies of seeing their legs, asses and dicks. Of course he says he's a drunk. Now we've Pastor Ted Haggard well what more can I say, visiting a male prostitute for massages, no doubt with happy endings. He being leader of the Evangels in the US or whatever they call themselves, he turned out to be the sinner he spoke about, he turned out to be worse than the folks he wanted in the church! He was also buying crystal meth from the said call dude, but he said he threw it away - humm dubious claim. He of wife and 5 kids, now no doubt thoroughly embarassed and wondering what the hell happened. Another man denying the fact that he's obviously gay, and maybe so for a good many years, another man trying to suppress his inner self, who he truly is only to have it emerge in a totally disgusting and unsavory way. This is yet another mark again on the madness that is organized religion and the followers that want to deny people from their true selves and then when they finally break, they make comments like - oh its human nature. Uh sorry, human nature doesn't say you might look for gay sex while married or look for gay sex, just because! ha That's the funniest statement I've heard.
I'm frankly quite disgusted at the state of organized religion, preying on people and having the nerve to try to tell us what to do, or think or else we won't get to go to heaven and be with God and Jesus. What a ridiculous set of drivel. How the hell do they know and the ones talking the loudest as the ones doing the most sinning.
