Happy Earth Day

I'm doing my ever luvin' best to ignore this "holiday" but boy it's everywhere. I can't seem to escape. Even some of the more sensible blogs I read are talking about making their blogs Carbon Neutral.

Uh huh.

Carbon Neutrality is a scam. And impossible to boot. There's just no such thing.

I've decided that in honor of Earth Day I will breath MORE to try to make up for these nonsensical so called earth friendly actions. And to make up for the fact that I am riding the bus this week, which I'm only doing to save money, not the earth.

But seriously...all the holier-than-thou greenies just make me want to trash the environment and go pour oil in the Sound. And that goes against my nature. I LOVE the environment. We have one of the MOST beautiful states and I love seeing the mountains, the plains, the swamps, the forests...we have everything. The last thing I want to do is pollute my environment.

Not polluting my environment is a long way from trying to save the planet or becoming carbon neutral (I don't think even death will create carbon neutrality will it...don't we give off various gases as we decompose?).

And I don't recall Earth Day ever being such a big deal, do you? I have vague recollections from when I was younger of Earth Day being mentioned here and there, but not everywhere as it appears to be now. Is it going to be on par with Christmas or Thanksgiving someday?

*sigh* I realize that Mother Gaia is the new politically correct religious icon but do they really need their own holiday. On the other hand, if I get the day off of work I'm all for it. :)

I have several friends and coworkers who lean pretty far left. I try not to engage them in politics because despite their views I like them and value their friendships. It's REALLY hard to keep my trap shut when I see some of them on Facebook joining groups like the one called "How About we Stop Blaming Barack Obama for everything George Bush did" ...

*blank stare*

I find this funny and a little odd. Perhaps a group needs to be created called "How about we stop blaming George Bush for all the crap Obama is now doing." :)

Have the Commies Met Their Goals?

Fascinating link found through one of my Facebook friends today...a list of the Communist Party's goals as of 1963. Some of these, I think, have been met quite spectacularly (and to our detriment).

The ones that speak to me most deeply:
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
Yeah...well, I think mission accomplished on those two. Especially in liberal meccas like Seattle.
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
I'm constantly shocked by what they allow on television - and I watch a LOT of television...too much I know. I'm going to have to tone it down as my little guy gets older and starts paying more attention. And the idea that homosexuality is "normal" just defies logic to me. I honestly do not care if some one is attracted to their same sex, but that does not make it normal and definitely is not healthy.
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
What the heck is "Social" religion? I'm not sure. I've heard a lot about intellectual materity though and that intellectually one cannot believe in God. Which is funny since there are some prominent scientists who have found God THROUGH science. I'm continually in awe of the natural world around us and its complexity. God is truly amazing.
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
I remember my public school education...these are both continually taught. That last line is hilarious on its face to anyone who actually knows history.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
These two enrage me! Whether or not people are actively communist, many in the public school system seem to want to remove children from their parental influenses. Just because you disagree with me does not give you the right to re-train my son! Or to ever tell him that his mother is wrong. If one teacher ever does this I will flip out.

So, the Soviet Union is no more and I think any honest intellectual will admit that Communism is a failure. Just look at North Korea and Cuba. Even China has gone away from "pure" Communism. It just doesn't work.

Freedom is better than the so called equality that Communism attemps (and fails miserably at providing).

Where Am I?

I'm still around. =) SO busy with finishing up my current job - this is my last week! Woohoo!!! Then I have next week 'off' (I'll be officially unemployed I think) and then I start with "the Duck" the week after.

I've been trying to keep my jewelry blog updated as best I can...especially because I signed up for a website called Social Spark. I get paid to write some blog posts ... if I can actually follow the dang rules. They're really strict and I sometimes only skim when I read. Live and learn. =) It's still a great site!

So if you are so inclined, please follow my jewelry blog for more up to date stuff. Including pictures of the necklaces I made for my mom...and one for me. It's the first new jewelry I've made in weeks and weeks. Dang kid. are a couple of cute pics of my amazingly adorable little boy at the Farmer's Market for the very first time.

Mommy, please take this hat off me...It's not cold enough for TWO hats. Sheesh. am I in the glass? This is fascinating! =)

Isn't he cute!?!?!

I Know This is Scary

OOOOOhhhhhh Look out Dems! Scary Tea Party radical!!!! Boo!

The lefties / progressives are practically peeing their pants over what they consider "mobs" and threatening radicals. Give me a very large break. I've been to "tea party" rallies and never once been nervous about my safety. I can't say the same about any lefty protest I've come across.

It's not violent to protest those who wish to rule over you. It's not violent to raise strong and passionate objections. It's not even technically violent to wish ill on's rude and stupid...but not violent. I have yet to hear ACTUAL threats of violence. I've heard stupidity and classless comments, but even those may not be what they seem.

In case you lefties have forgotten, THIS is what actual death threats are like. And THIS. Do you hear Palin crying or whining? (She's probably packing though! And I hope someone is investigating that lunatic.)

Conservatives are threatened and smeared all the time particularly when they start getting national attention. Remember Joe the Plumber? His personal and private details were illegally accessed in order to smear him because he dared, DARED, to question The One.

I've personally had my property defaced by some leftard...a bumper sticker on my car was defaced. Not a big deal but I would never...NEVER...touch someone's car to deface their personal property. It's wrong and rude. I had to remove the sticker (it was a troop supporting sticker, not even a pro-bush sticker which I don't even have on my car).

I have yet to see mobs of tea partiers with signs wanting to hang The One. We want to KILL the BILL...not the man. Yet it was just standard operating procedure to see signs calling for the death of Bush for a variety of supposed transgressions.

That's at an Obama campaign rally. Yup. No radical mobs here. Move along.

I didn't attend any official McCain rallies but I would be comfortable betting that there was nothing like that at one. If there had even been ONE single case of someone hanging The One in effigy it would be all over the news. ALL over. Just one. A single one. As "proof" that America is still a racist country.

The projection (not to mention hypocrisy) from these lefties who can't handle even a little bit of dissent thrown their way is palpable. We the People are fed up. We are tired of being told what to do by politicians who refuse to live by the same rules.

"This latest Dem hysteria over the scariness of tea partiers is just beneath contempt. Obviously nobody should do anything illegal, but, heck, you trample on people's basic rights in an area of intimate concern to them and put the financial survival of the nation at risk, and everybody is supposed to just lie down and be all polite about it? What a bunch of cry-babies. But dangerous crybabies. They're making omelettes like crazy, breaking eggs by the gross, and when one of them squeaks, "I'm a little chick, please don't hurt me!" it's all, the right wing terrorists are on the loose! Transparent, contemptible political theater and utter cluelessness about, you know, freedom. People, as in the People, have every right to be angry, furious, shocked, appalled and disgusted by what Congress and our ambitious young prince have done."

I'm planning to take my little baby boy who turns 6 months old today, to a "mob rally" tomorrow morning at the state capital (organized by Americans for Prosperity). Somehow I'm really not stressed about it and think he'll actually enjoy it a lot. Of course, he won't get all the interesting puppet shows to watch like he would at a lefty rally. But it'll still be fun.

I'll be sure to bring my camera to photograph those angry, threatening mobs.

Pretty scary and threatening looking aren't we. :) Well, Marshal might puke on you but that's the extent of our violent potential.

It's Giveaway Time

I think that title could be read a couple of different ways, some worse than others, but this isn't the government trying to give away my money...this is me giving away some beautiful jewelry (and it's not even my own jewelry!).

Head on over to my jewelry blog, Casto Creations Jewelry, and see how you can enter to win a stunning completely handmade copper necklace, earrings, bracelet, and ring in a gorgeous handcrafted jewelry pouch made by my good friend Dana of Dana's Jewelry Designs. She's so talented! I wish I had half her talent...though instead of trying to pull her down and suppress her gifts I want to help build her up even higher. Sure, she's 'technically' competition but competition is good for us!

And at least this giveaway is completely voluntary. =)

We Are Screwed

I'm beyond pissed. I'm livid. And I'm sick to my stomach.

Passed through trickery, back room deals, bribes, and I'm sure some outright threats...this bill does NOTHING - not ONE DAMN THING - to make our health care system better or more efficient and effective. NOTHING!!!!

So those of you who think this is some great new government Utopian program are crazier than I am. I am TRULY afraid of the consequences of this monstrosity. Will my medications be "approved" by some bureaucratic board somewhere in DC? And if not, what the hell am I supposed to do? Because my current health insurance will probably be completely destroyed and run out of business by government meddling and chicanery. And it's not a cheap medication. But if the government deems it too expensive, and my life not worth enough to save, then I'm screwed.

My son will be screwed if he happens to inherit my lousy genes. But he's going to be screwed regardless because the government wants him to be their slave. Any hard work he does will be punished. He will be encouraged to be a slug and leach off the government instead of working hard to succeed on his own. And how in the world do we as parents counter this message of "the government will take care of you"? Why should he bother to work hard? His salary would just be confiscated to pay for entitlement programs.

Then again, if enough people fall into the entitlement trap we will all collapse financially. It's just so depressing I can hardly stand it.

Do politicians just immediately lose their sanity when they are "hired" by us? Or is it just that the people doing the hiring don't care and fall for the bribes promises of said politicians? *sigh* There is no logic to this piece of crap.

Screw listening to the people. The majority of Americans do NOT want this piece of crap monstrosity of government intrusion.

I don't even want to think about it anymore. I have actual, you know, WORK to do. Not that the Democrats would know anything about a hard days work. Bastards.
