Horrible Days

October 30th, 2004 · No Comments

I had a horrible Friday. Normally, I don’t write much about myself, what I think, what I feel. No doubt some of what I believe usually comes through in what I write. (Let me know when you stop laughing.) Yet as shocking as it may seem — though I’m not sure many other people realize […]

His Soft Voice

October 29th, 2004 · 1 Comment

“His voice got soft when he talked to you.” That’s what my stepmother told me after my father died. She said she could always tell when my father was talking to me on the phone — his voice would get soft in a tone he used with no others and she knew it was me […]

Constitutional Rights

October 28th, 2004 · No Comments

I’m working on an appeal — and, although I haven’t missed the appeal deadline, I’ve already missed my “draft deadline” — so my blogging time right now is extremely limited. It should be “nonexistent” until this appeal is finished. So forgive the brevity of this post. The friend who inspired my “Nothing to Hide” article […]

A Dark & Stormy Night

October 27th, 2004 · 1 Comment

It’s been raining here in the Central Valley of California for a few days now. I know to some of you, that doesn’t seem like all that much to grouse about but for those of us who are used to relatively good weather for nine months of the year, the first rains seem to bring […]

Tomorrow (10/27/2004) morning, we’ll be introducing a brand-new blogger! She blogs under the nom de plume of “Bunny Chafowitz.” Her first installment is a movie review-cum-political-piece which asks questions about what happens to women in the event of a second Bush Presidency.

G-d’s President

October 26th, 2004 · 2 Comments

This article is the second in a series. The first article in this set, titled “This Christian Nation,” looked at the Foundation of the United States of America — particularly at the point that while the nation was founded by men (sorry, ladies; I mean no disrespect; I’m just noting a historical fact) who, in […]

Explosive News

October 25th, 2004 · 2 Comments

I’ve been waiting to post until I could finish the second in the series I was working on; the post to be titled “G-d’s President.” But, apparently, G-d’s President wants to keep giving us reasons to pray like we’ve never prayed before. President Bush has repeatedly pointed out that John Kerry cannot keep us safe. […]

This Christian Nation

October 21st, 2004 · 2 Comments

I have sometimes been accused of attacking Christians and Christianity. Frankly, while I understand why some people mistakenly believe that is (one of) my (many) motivation(s), they are wrong. While I do not feel a need or a desire to be a Christian, the true Christian tradition is an honorable one. It actually bothers me […]

The End of the World

October 20th, 2004 · 3 Comments

Cheney has his act down pretty well. If you elect John Kerry, terrorists will attack. If you elect John Kerry, the United States will not be safe. If you elect John Kerry, a nuclear bomb will go off in your yard. Stay tuned for: If you elect John Kerry, the universe will collapse. All this […]

Dirty Liberal Ideas: Trial Lawyers

October 19th, 2004 · 1 Comment

Rich, connecting to us from his NetZero account, takes Mark King to task for not doing research before complaining about some of the actions of the Bush Administration. Because his comment is reminiscent of Rush Limbaugh and other Republican mouthpieces in terms of the specific accusations made against “liberals,” the (lack of) depth of the […]
