Let’s start with a couple of illustrations, this…
My love of politics started as a child and exchanging birthday cards with President Eisenhower, we shared a birth date. Every year I’d buy him a card, scribble Happy Birthday, Your Birth DAY Buddy, Denise and mail it. A few days later, I’d receive a card, totally preprinted and auto-penned, but I still proudly displayed it with the others. It wasn’t until years later I would appreciate that small gesture from the White House staff. Never once was asked for $3.OO or MY birthday presents.
JFK made me a Democrat. He entered the Presidential race as I entered high school and I just loved everything Camelot-y about the Kennedy family. Sadly, we never found out how the world would have turned out had he never been assassinated, but it moved me to political activism (ironically, first as a staffer for a Republican Member of the House shortly after dropping out of college).
Then came love, marriage and the baby carriage x3, so my political hobby became complicated being married to an active duty Marine and the dratted UCMJ, my mouth was duct taped for several years.
Still loved my Dems, Carter, Clinton …. then came the Political Petri-Dish Experiment failure called Obama. There is nothing traditionaly, spiritualy,compassionately or NICE about him (see: Hillary Clinton and her supporters/PUMAs) to support.
I now support Romney Democrats
LynnII writes her first post:
In honor of Birdie and her hard work and effort. Birdie gave me a huge opportunity when she invited me to edit her blog. I was truly honored by the invite. I racked my brain to think of a new and different name but, kept coming back to this one. It felt friendly and warm, the way Birdie and all her little Birdies made me feel. Hopefully you will feel the same.
Still working on issues and kinks but, hopefully those will be ironed out soon. My promise to all who comment here is to make this as good a site as Birdie made hers. With your help and suggestions we can all learn and grow.
Please join me in Welcoming her to Bloggyland over at Lynn’s Little Nest
“the authors have deleted this blog”
Sadly, the words that greeted me last night when arriving for my daily fix of all things birdie and the snarkilicous birdettes.
I’ve heard from Lynn and she too is unaware of what happened, has contacted Birdie and waiting to hear back.
Thought I’d start a post to give refuge to those of you awaiting news. Or something 😀
Crikesey, where’s the Preezy Obamadramarama for his executive order to ban discrimination for his, you know, pals ? Oh here it is 🙂
She was beaten by Big Brown. Moments later she was humanely euthanized on the track after suffering broken ankles in both her front legs. A metaphor for Hillary’s failed campaign ? So the only girls running in big 2008 events, Hillary was indeed the lucky one. <—- H/T Oswald at The Crawdad Hole
Sidebar: Today I bet $4 on Take Charge Indy (15-1), thinking great sign Indy’s will take back the country in November AND my friend Anna Belle’s from Indy. Phhhttt, he not only lost, but was disqualified? A horse named Give Me Another won. Another term? Crap.
