Hey Y'all - Welcome to my world

Sometimes 140 characters just won't cut it so I started writing stuff down....here. Don't get me wrong, I love Twitter but there are times when the Random Thoughts of a Southern Liberal Mind just can't be contained within a Tweet.

What Has Happened to My Country?

For months now, America and the world has had to endure the irresponsible rantings of an irrational con-man. No...I'm not talking about Rush Limbaugh (he's actually become white-noise).   For some odd reason, this Trump guy has captured the support of millions of Americans.  Are they angry?  Are they bigots?  Are they stupid? Or, are they just voting football politics again?  Never in my lifetime did I imagine that I would witness the fall of the American empire in real time.  For Americans to ridicule intelligence and to embrace unintelligible rhetoric is confounding.  The bar by which we measure our candidates for the Presidency has been lowered to the floor.  Who's up in 2020?  Kanye West?

Keep America Great!

I'm still here!

...even after so many life events in the last 18 months that would drive most people to the brink.  But, you can't keep a Southern woman down for long.

I've been painting like crazy lately.  Be sure to check out my Art Show link on this page.

Quietly listening to Chris Matthews on Sirius XM in the car, trying to keep up with the daily Scandalgate in DC (Lord knows you need to keep a list of crap to be scared about) and praying for Stephen Colbert over the loss of his Mom and hoping that Jon Stewart stays safe in the Middle East.

Nick Cage is currently filming a feature movie here in my home town.  Woohoo!!!  Friends and Neighbors have been posting pics all over Facebook with his handsome mug walking on my streets.  Now ain't that something?

Lastly -

I'd like to give a shout-out to Edward Snowden.  He has to be either the bravest or the dumbest young man I've heard of in like...FOREVER!  Really dude?  What exactly did you envision the remainder of your life would be?  On the run?  Forever?  Treason is a heavy charge Ed.  That NSA operation you claim to know so much about...you know...the one from which you stole documents and information, they're coming for ya.  You had to know those NSA minions (the ones that look just like you) would be charged with hunting you down.  I know the world is a big big big big big place.  But it kinda has to feel pretty small in that International Terminal of the Moscow airport when the whole world is looking for ya.  Right?  So...I hope things work out for you the way you planned but I seriously think you should have thought things through a little more...  Just goes to show ya that money can't buy know-it-all.

Peace out!

SAVING $$$...

...has to be one of my favorite past-times and when you combine that with my other favorite past-time (shopping), man-oh-man just get outta my way! Every good southern girl loves to shop y'all and I'm a good southern girl but these days I don't have time to go to the stores or walk around the malls all day. For some odd reason, the hubby and the kids need to eat every day. What is up with that? But...I digress. The point of this post was to let y'all know about one of my most favorite websites - Ebates - the online rebate people. I don't normally do this type of promotion (you know...I'd rather talk about politics or my family) but this isn't really about Ebates...it's about saving money. Believe me, I was skeptical when I first heard about them but I've been accessing all my favorite online shops through Ebates now for about 5 years AND I really have received a check from them every three months like clockwork. It's so great, my husband has started doing it. They have links to stores like Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic, Dell, Nordstrom, Macy's, ShoeMall, Apple, Travelocity, Orbitz, etc.... If you purchase from one of the online stores when you've accessed them through Ebates, they'll pay you a percentage of your purchase and deposit it right back into your Ebates account - 1% up to 25% depending on the store - then send you a "Big Fat Check". Now that's a deal!

Sign-up & get paid - it's 100% completely free - and they don't ask for anything but your name and address. The best part is, the only time you hear from them is when they are mailing your check (or you get one in the mail). So...give it a shot! Click on this link to check out Ebates and sign up today! You got nothing to lose!

Peace out ~~

I proudly support President Barack Obama!

Dear Mr. President: I'm sorry and embarrassed that small minds like Donald Trump and the Birther movement were trying to distract you from your task of eliminating Osama bin Laden - the real threat to America. Thank you for being patient, intelligent, contemplative, tough and resolute.

Good job Mr. President!

Proud to be an American and a supporter of President Barack Obama!

Carnival Barkers - A Feast for Your Weary Eyes!

"I know that there is going to be a segment of people for which no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest, but I am speaking for the vast majority of the American people as well as for the press. We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We have better stuff to do. I have got better stuff to do. We have got big problems to solve."

"We are not going to be able to do it if we are distracted, we are not going to be able to do it if we spend time vilifying each other ... if we just make stuff up and pretend that facts are not facts, we are not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by side shows and carnival barkers." - President Barack Obama, April 27, 2011

Now.... Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and all you conspiracy theorist TeaParty birthers, would you PLEASE just STFU once and for all??? - Amy Bolt, April 27, 2011
