Busy packing and moving.

O.K. I've been back from lovely Columbus, GA for a week. And no, I didn't get to see the AFLAC duck. I have been busy moving to my new house. I just closed on it yesterday. I will still be in Alexandria, not in Alexandria City but in Fairfax County. I bought a three bedroom, end-unit townhome for under $400K.

I would love to write about how Republicans (especially George Allen) have problems telling fact from fiction. But George Allen is an idiot. Ballot question one is stupid too. I'm so glad that is on the ballot instead of referendums about solving the traffic mess in NoVA.

I know Jim Webb's ex-wife is working to get him elected. So George, where's your ex-wife? Do you really want us to know about why you got divorced?

I would also like to blog about a wingnut who thinks that Baghdad is safer that Washington DC. So that's what's causing all the traffic jams in the DC Metro area. VBIEDs!!! Funny how the local, national and international news media hasn't caught on to it. Especially since they were all over the DC Sniper shootings.

What a scam

Apparently this wacko thinks he can mint his own money and merchants are legally obligated to accept it. Norfed has been identified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

What does Norfed's executive director, Michael Johnson have say about that?
"That definitely is not the philosophy of the organization," Johnson said. "I've been a Republican for most of my life. . . . We are focused on the mainstream. . . . I guess we are libertarian. But definitely not anti-government."

Yep, gotta love the Grand Old Prejudiced men.

Beta Blogger

I just switched to beta.blogger. This is a test post.



Vote for me! I might be a jerk, but my wife is really nice!!

To the editors of the Washington Post:

I really don't care about a politician's wife. I am not voting for her. It really doesn't matter if she's pro-choice if her husband votes away my rights in order to appease the religious right. She's not the one who is going to be representing me in the Senate. It's nice that's she's loyal and will defend him to the death. So's Hilary Rodham Clinton, but Hilary has an identity of her own. Teresa Heinz Kerry had an identity of her own as well, she managed a multi-million dollar foundation. Both of them were smeared because of their independence. Judith Steinberg didn't even bother to change her name when she married her fellow physician Howard Dean. (BTW, where was the outrage about Lynne Cheney working for the American Enterprise Institute? Can you say IOKIYAR?) Wouldn't it have been nice to have a First Lady who actually had a real job? Instead of collecting wingnut welfare like Lynne Cheney?

But we really need to move away from the politician's wife as decorative accessory. It is an anachronism. Real women have careers of their own, the days of a woman making her husband her career are a relic. Women don't go to college to get their MRS degrees, women now outnumber men at colleges. A politician bringing his wife into the spotlight to appeal to women voters is patroning. How stupid does George Allen think women are? Let's dump the wife as a part a candidate's package, this is the 21st Century after all.

I got a push poll today

It's election season. I got a push poll from an organization calling itself the Family Foundation. It was an automated phone call, I didn't even get to speak to a live person. I would have loved to have told off those fundies who are stupid enough to believe that birth control pills and other forms of family planning are bad for families. Don't get me started on the hysteria that letting two gay men or two lesbians will destroy marriage. So anyhow, they ask me these "family values" questions about gay marriage and abortion. The last question they asked was about giving tax credits to families who send who their children "to the school of their choice". Hmmm, I guess the fundies are giving up on the school vouchers to send their children to Abeka High School and are going for the tax credit. Which is even worse than the vouchers, because it takes tax money away from incoming revenue to the schools (and roads) and creates even larger budget deficits. Yes, the Family Foundation is a bunch of insecure Xristian fundies who think that everything should be their way. And these busybodies are Virginia's affliatiate of Focus on the Family.

How stupid and irrational are the Family Foundation's staff? Well the Fairfax County chapter has issues with the Fairfax County Schoolboard's Family Life Education curriculum. In particular, they object to teaching 5th graders about HIV. We are talking about a suburban area of Washington DC. The metro DC area's HIV infection rate is double the national average. Not teaching children about HIV and how to prevent it is like handing that same 5th grader a loaded handgun with the safety off. Leaving children ignorant about how HIV is transmitted is doing them a great disservice. Especially since half of teenagers in the United States have had oral sex. When is it going to through the thick skulls of these amoral control freaks that ABSTINENCE ONLY SEX EDUCATION DOESN'T WORK!!!

If the Family Foundation wants to keep their children uneducated and unable to cope with the real world that's their business. But keep me and my son out of it.


A rebuttal to the idiot on Duke Street with the big "Vets for Allen" sign

The WaPo has an article about how Senator Macacawitz now has national visibility. Lately, he has been under scruntiny for his tendency to see non-white people as something less than human. If only his voting record on military and veteran's issues were under the same microscope. I did see that "Vets for Allen" sign on Duke Street in Alexandria. Apparently, the person who posted that sign is truly misinformed about Senator Macacawitz's record. See, Senator Macacawitz is what is commonly known as a chickenhawk. He likes to make meaningless gestures about being patriotic, like protecting the Flag from Desecration but deep down inside he has the same contempt for our fighting forces and veterans as he does for people who are not white, straight, Christian males like him. If you think Jim Webb had issues with women serving in the Armed Forces, Senator Macacawitz voted against allowing abortions in military hospitals. in 2002. That was more than 20 years after Jim Webb's infamous "Annapolis is a horny woman's dream" essay. THINK ABOUT IT you women in Allen's ad!! Yes, chickenhawks don't like women in the military. They whine and complain about how pregnancy interferes with military readiness, but then they won't do anything to help women remain militarily ready. I'm sure Senator Macacawitz would find a way to deny our military women easy access to contraception if he could.

Senator Macacawitz thinks that
tax cuts for the wealthy are more important than financing the War on Terra. He voted against funding veteran's health care, twice in 2005.

And who can forget this classic?

It's a pity that Senator Macacwitz voted against increasing mental health services in the VA Health care system. Obviously, the person who owns the big house with the "Vets for Allen" sign needs it.
