KARMA IN LARGE DOSES

Did I not say keep watching this is going to get interesting? Well I believe this is just the beginning of what is going to be a very interesting and for some of us a very fun race into 2006 and beyond. When your opponent is shooting himself in the foot you don't have to take aim.

Watch how things unfold early next year, but in the meantime keep watching the ball of unethical yarn unravel.

That reality sandwich is getting bigger, must be a Republican Party Sub by now.

KARMA IS TRULY A BITCH

What can one say these days watching the truth start to come out? Karma is truly a bitch for all of us, it is not limited to anyone. I believe that even the Republicans seem to be feeling the towel snapping back at them from the wonderful balancing act of karma.

A shout out to Al Franken and Katherine on AAR (Air America Radio) keep up the great job and we love watching you on Sundance Channel!!

Also it has been great to see Rachel Maddow on Tucker Carlson's new show, she brings some much needed perspective to MSNBC. I was getting tired of seeing Tweety Bird lose his spine. This is called stingball, not hardball as Tweety seems to only know how to play softball with the right.

Keep watching the big show unfold, the great balancing act is beginning. And of course myself and ramman will be happy to add a few comments here and there.

A very special thought for all of our brave men and women in Iraq. After watching my best friend see her love off to Iraq and knowing she may be next I must say that I admire all of you who serve and those who are left at home who carry on. When a soldier goes off to serve his or her family serve right along with them.

May we all be blessed with love and understanding and find peace wherever possible. Maybe we can work on evolving as human beings.

STINGY IS BACK

Finally back after a long break! I must say that I am very fortunate to have health insurance though I haven't used it much. But, I didn't have to worry about that as I have been recuperating after I had been sick. Being sick on and off for awhile took its toll and I am just happy to be back and able to write a sting here and there.

The cats took good care of me, don't they always know just how to purr and snuggle and make one feel better?

Ok on to my next post....a little reminder about Karma.

A BREAK

As much as I want to jump into the discussion of all the crazy things going on now, unfortunately a break is at hand due to illness. Don't worry the cats are busy taking care of me and hopefully soon I will be back to blogging.

I will say this, keep watching because it is just starting to get really interesting, some politicians are setting themselves up for some "instant" karma in the next election.

A good thought for Scorpy this way is always appreciated as I am mending.

A CULTURE OF (RUNNING YOUR) LIFE

Ultraconservatives can probably attribute much of their political success in recent years to manipulation through language. They have become adept at taking words and short phrases that seem to indicate broad things that almost everyone supports, but are actually code words for their narrow agenda. For instance, "freedom" and "liberty" actually stand for invading foreign countries for no just cause to help the ideological and economic interests of a very few. "Family values" stands for the denial of basic rights to gays. And then there's "the culture of life". I mean, who in their right mind doesn't like life?

Of course, "culture of life" is right-wing code for support of governmental and religious limitations placed individuals' freedoms in the most personal areas of life, particularly concerning its beginning and its end. All based on the limited so-called Christian morality of a relative few. It's a shame that the "culture of life" concept is so narrow so as not to include other real life issues, such as seeing that working people can earn a living wage, that everyone has sufficient health care available to them, that poverty around the globe is addressed and that when we make a decision that will result in the taking of lives abroad, we are damn sure that it is either the only way to protect our national security, or that it will save many more lives than will be lost.

But, no. The phrase "culture of life" is meant to do only one thing: Manipulate the majority of people in the country into allowing a shrill irrational minority to run their lives the way that minority sees fit.

Now, who in their right mind would want that?

LETTING GO

Ultimately all of life is letting go. Until the ultimate letting go, dying. It takes great courage to let go of someone you love, be it in life or their death. It is selfish to want to hold to someone when everyone should be free to live and be who they are and yes, to choose when they also die. May we all remain free to make our own decisions without government interference or parental also.

As adults we enter into relationships and sometimes marriage and we put our trust in our spouse, telling them things we would never tell our relatives or Mother or Father. Respecting the sanctity of marriage doesn't mean only respecting it when you like the decisions made by the ones in the marriage.

Letting go is the hardest thing we do, but in the end it is the most loving selfless act of all.

POLITICAL KARMA

Everyone has to deal with what they create. I have always been a big believer in karma, and now you are just starting to see the political karma start to become evident. So many of us do not ever want the government to have any say in our personal lives. What about the pursuit of happiness & of course freedom?

Freedom also means the freedom to enter into a marriage knowing that your spouse will take care of you and make the best decision they know how about even yes, your death if they have to. There are things I would only share with my husband that I would never share with my "relatives" even parents....may times especially parents. You do not own your children.

There is a reason when you marry you become a family and your birth family becomes "relatives". A husband and wife are the family and of course their children if they have them. This is just another example of why gays should be allowed to marry, to let them have the same protections under the law that straight couples have when making medical decisions and of course financial and all of the other decisions we take for granted as married couples. But, I digress....this is supposed to be about political karma.

Seems that playing to an ultra religious base may not be the best thing in the world. You see, even many of my Republican religious friends are appalled at what the congress and President did in getting involved in what should of been left private and in the courts. We have a separation of powers for a reason and thank heavens for our judges, the conservative and liberal ones who understand the constitution. Many of my Republican friends are seriously questioning their positions now, saying that they don't want to have someone speak for them in the most personal of decisions. Well, then don't try to do that to the rest of us in other matters. I believe in the separation of church and state for many reasons, not the least of being what you have seen in this terrible, appalling and disgusting abuse of power this past week.

The political fallout from this past week will be long lasting, as it should. Do we really want anyone telling us how we have to live, do we want to be run as a theocracy as the religious right is attempting to do? When we forget the following we head down that slippery slope into complete chaos:

Freedom requires eternal vigilance.

Freedom means everyone's freedom.

Freedom of religion means freedom from religion.

Know thy place politicians.
