When you are done and have read all the “Did you know’s…”, please click on “Page 2″ (right below the slideshow) for a little treat. It will only make sense if you go through and read all the slides.
In her radio show, Dr. Laura Schlessinger said that homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following response is on open letter to Dr. Laura, which was posted on the internet. It’s hilarious! As well as informative. More…

Today was to be my day of catching up on some doggie graphic work and some new websites, but I keep coming across more and more websites and publishings about the war the GOP has declared on Women’s Rights. One minute I want to scream to everyone the unrighteousness behind these bills. Then the next minute, I want to pack up myself and my dogs and move into a cave in the Northern Territories – with high speed internet, of course. I’m sure I can find a cave, but since I seriously doubt I’ll find one with high speed internet, or even in an area where a wireless card will work, then I must do the former of the two options. More…
Fun footage of a dancing traffic cop in Manila which has been synced to the song “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson. This guy has some moves! I have to wonder, though, if there is any music playing anywhere, or if he has on an iPod or an mp3 player.
I would like to share some photos – which are further down this page below the video – that I took in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for the national march protesting the Republican Party’s “War on Women.” Not surprisingly, the GOP is now denying that they are waging any war on the women in our country. How can they not see what is as plain on the nose on our faces? Because extreme right wing conservatives believe firmly in a hierarchical system. Men are at the top. Excuse me… white men. Followed by white women… about 5 steps behind, pregnant and getting ready to cook their dinner. Any one else is of little to no importance to them – unless they serve a purpose as Allen West does in Florida.
For the past couple of days, as well as today, I have been seeing posts about May 4th being “Star Wars Day.” Okay, good, yay (I’m still not getting it)… but finally, I snapped. May 4th –> May the Forth –> May the forth be with you (May the force be with you).
Here are a couple short commercial parodies about our countries favorite Presidential Candidate joke… Mitt Romney.
First, we have “It’s Mittens Time.” Rather than grab that Miller beer after a hard day of firing people, sit down with ol’ Mitt and enjoy a cold-hearted Mitten Beer, brought to you by Bain’s Brewing Company in Laid-off, Wisconsin:

For those of you who live in a climate where swamp coolers are useless – be thankful. However, the desert southwest is not one of those areas. Born and raised in the midwest, I’d never heard of these beasts until I moved out here. The basic premise is water-cooled air by evaporation. Simple physics… air passes over water, water evaporates dropping the temperature of the air, and voila! The desert-version of A/C. When a home has a decent cooler, they’re not bad, especially when they function through the central air ducts. But some units just blast a wind tunnel of damp cool air out one duct right beneath it and sounds like a 747 landing in your house.

Every 90 seconds, somewhere in the world, a woman dies from a pregnancy-related complication. This isn’t just a “third world” problem. The United States currently ranks 50th in the world for maternal health. We used to rank 41st. Women here experience higher rates of maternal death than those in nearly all European countries, Canada and several countries in the Middle East and Asia. In addition, the U.S. numbers may be depressed as there are no reporting requirements for maternal deaths.
I tell you, the Republicans are like bloody Chinese Water Torture. You know the deal… where the victim is completely immobilized, especially their head, and a drip is started dead-center in the middle of their forehead. Sure, a few dozen is no big deal. Might even feel good. But after several thousand, it makes the victim border on insanity.
