"Just Tell Them...
I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Inaugural Headline and Spending Differences For 2004 And 2008: Sucker Born Every Minute
I'm Borrowing the subject of this Blog Entry from Free Me Now.
Here's a shout out to them for doing the research!
It is interesting, isn't it? How different the headlines seem to be this week, from four years ago.....
"Tsk tsk tsk- when dealing with imbesils you can do anything right in front of them so long as you say pretty words - the fools will cheer! I guess we got the government we deserve ! I wish I could go forward in time to see how history accounts for how we fell for this one! Like the worlds greatest salesman once said “there’s a sucker born every minute” I just never thought the USA was chock full of a majority of em!
Headlines 4 Years Ago:
"Republicans spending $42 million on inauguration while troops Die in unarmored Humvees”
“Bush extravagance exceeds any reason during tough economic times”
“Fat cats get their $42 million inauguration party, Ordinary Americans get the shaft”
“Historic Obama Inauguration will cost only $120 million”
“Obama Spends $120 million on inauguration; America Needs A Big Party”
“Citibank executives contribute $8 million to Obama Inauguration”"
Personally, I oppose this kind of spending for government pomp. Whether $42 million, or $120 million.... it is simply unnecessary. But, c'mon, MSM... your bias is showing yet again. And it's downright sickening.
Alas the masses are falling for it. I mean, really.... there must be a sucker born every minute.
I guess you could say we've all been FLEECED. And, Donna, you are one of the lead fleecers.
In "real life" Dawg is a mom, a nurse, a pet rescuer and a tireless advocate for animal rights.
Dawg is happily married for thirty years and has raised three awesome children. She holds an advanced degree in Family Science, wherein her research was focused on women's support circles during parturition. Her dedication to Women's Rights is directly affected by her belief that motherhood should not be a sentence to isolation and disenfranchisement.
Dawg is on hiatus from political bloggery d/t the intense demands of her engagement in the No Kill movement at this time. However, she remains influenced by PUMA politics and reads the blogs of her fellow PUMAs (at right) regularly.
Thanks for the Visit, all you Stray Dogs and PUMAs!
"Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave.
