"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."

Confessions of a Hope Fiend: How Obama Got Elected Part Two?
"My macro economics manual is possibly the most convoluted occult thing that I ever read. High finance is a total fabrication.
Wait, maybe I will start printing my own treasury bonds, summoning money out of thin air as governments do, print myself in this pose and ask the good people to finance me through inflation. They are used to it."
By Adam Scott Miller, visionary Pisces artist.
The Hopium doesn't fall far from the L.S.Dopium, it appears.
Part one of "How Obama Got Elected" is being played out every day by the MSM. Excellent synopsis of where the MSM has brought us, Cinie! But, I ask you.... how is it that the children of the 60s have become so gullible? What happened to the "reject authority" brigade?
That, my friends, is part two of the equation. The addiction to Hopium. Which is not the same as Hope, BTW. Hopium is an imposter. An illusion. A glamour of the Crowleian/ Learian variety. It leads to the most wishful of thinking in the most dire of circumstances. The total collapse of consensual reality before the god of relativity.
That so many of the "reject authority" boomers fell for the Obama charade, and bought the "crap is chocolate" sales pitch, is a sad testament to our past as revolutionaries. More sadly, though, the fact that so many of our own children bought it as well, does not portend well for our future as a nation.
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.
