Rudy, Pat and John.... Author: RaineDate:11/08/2007 13:05:17
Good morning everyone...
There is a lot of stuff going on today, and I simply do not know where to begin. First off and MOST important... if you have any little people, or know of anyone with little people, please call them and tell them that Aqua-Dots HAVE been recalled.. I myself seemed to be the bearer of bad news yesterday when I called friends who have 2 little people that were really counting on them for Christmas. They did not believe me at first... so do not assume that everyone reads the news like you! :peace:
Pat Robertson endorsed Guiliani. This was a rather stunning endorsement. It is becoming more and more clear to me, that the Christian Coalition seems a bit, well fractured these days. When you have an endorsement like this from someone who is so radical in his social beliefs as Robertson endorsing a person who actually does support a woman's right to choose... you have to wonder what the hell is going on here? It seems to me that power and control take precident over anything else these days.
It leaves me wondering what is more important to Pat - God or Republicans? But, hey... I guess it goes both ways. Rudy happily accepted the nomination from a man who once said "(T)he feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." . It seems a little puzzling to me.
Speaking of lesbians... ENDA passed in the House! It was shaky for a while there, but ultimately, the bill passed 235-184. Another version of the bill will be voted on in the Senate, and it faces a battle there as well... Barney Frank gave a speech on the floor that was so inspiring I was brought to tears. I posted that video on our message board, but today I wanted to give a shout out to my representative, John Lewis. This is why ENDA is so important for all Americans.
Inspiring, no? Interesting Juxtaposition when you compare it to the Mayor of 9/11 accepted an endorsement from a man who hates women and gays... Maybe Rudy was playing with his Aqua-dots... :P
Anyway, coffee is on, the news is fresh and the friends are here. :peace: and :heart: Raine
