Ground Hog Day??? Has that
glorified rat, ever said winter is
over? Has he ever not seen his
shadow? Never that my memory
has served. But then my memory
of late, has been like a match head
on fire. Flares fast, and is gone.
This has to be one of the dumbest
celebrations. "Why don't they just say
Feb. 2nd,... well, folks we have 6 more
weeks of winter and spring will be here?"
Oh, well,... whatever.
ok.ok..so the little rodent said spring is here.
yea, right.. see you March 16th when it starts
to warm up, if we are lucky.
American gluttony again.. Seems that
Exxon is bragging about their 39+ BILLION
dollar PROFIT. Folks, that is profit, that is
after all the wages, and pay for the product,
and etc... PROFIT!! 39+BILLION. And they
sing a sad song about how bad it is to
pay for the crude? 39 BILLION PROFIT!!.
Oh, to have such a woe...
And people are still homeless, children
are still in food lines at churches and shelters,
and many people without health insurance.
A couple days ago, on another blog, I was
kind of taken to task over the word OLD BROAD.
I used it in reference to Molly Ivins, the columnist,
who passed away.
It does my heart good to read Kathleen Parker
this morning in the paper. Because she, too,
referred to Ivins as Broad. A great Broad.
To quote Ms. Parker:
"To the World War II crowd, and to some
of us who were raised by them, a Great Broad
was more than a mere woman. The best
compliment my father could pay a woman
was to say, "She is one great broad"."
She goes on to explain what that means,
and also says:
"A great broad is everlasting, a presence,
a force, a woman of substance - solid,
intelligent, humorous, sexy and full of "it"
Reliable, strong, confident and competent,
she walks into a room and causes a stir."
THANK YOU, KATHLEEN PARKER...
I could only wish to be referred to as...
a great broad... or even just Broad.
So God Bless, Molly Ivins, sure hope
you are still giving them hell, and we
will continue down here.
LOVE Has Come For You
