She dumped Frank Sinatra.

by bookkillrr

Lucky for me, my mother in law dumped Frank Sinatra.  She dated him for a little while, and then decided to leave him for another man.  This is an obit.  I really loved my mother in law.  She was ultra cool.  She could out party us. She was a huge Laker fan. She was there if anybody needed her.   She was the perfect mother in law.
I always skip these types of non diaries.  Oh and here I am trying to write one.

What to do about Gay Marriage.

by bookkillrr

Ok. the reason Gay marriage is such a problem with the religious right is that in their minds "Marriage is sacred"  This bond is so special that it can only be between a male and a female.
I want to apologize in advance for this being my lame attempt at this being a diary, but I thought my idea was worth the trouble of throwing it out there.

Let's take a trip back to memory lane.  Remember when Governor Davis was in office and warned the people of California that the state was in financial trouble, and could be bankrupt if corrections were not made.
These corrections included raising taxes.  He was honest, and wanted all of us to face reality, deal with it, and turn things around before it was too late.    And then a couple of wealthy Republicans came up with a plan to recall Governor Gray Davis.  That plan included a movie star.

Here is what Arnold Schwarzenegger was spewing at the time.

"There is another way you can tell you're a Republican. You have faith in free enterprise, faith in the resourcefulness of the American people ...and faith in the U.S. economy. To those critics who are so pessimistic about our economy, I say: Don't be economic girlie men!"

I know you remember that.   It was too  easy to have Governor Gray Davis recalled.   Every Republican that receives their Tax Refund IOU rather than an actual check they can take to the bank can remember the words "Economic Girlie Men"  

I hope Gray Davis know's there are a lot of people who are thinking about him.  He wanted to do the right thing.

The Super Jesus Bowl.

by bookkillrr

Most of you should just skip this all together.
 Its just something I cringe about every year, at every superbowl.  It's the "I want to thank the lord" part of the game.    It seems harmless to most, but to me it's the religious recruting tool of the year.  Not unlike the Rosebowl showing a nice hot Southern California day to millions of people freezing on the east coast, deciding on that day, to move to California.
Well, this Superbowl is different.  It's the SUPER JESUS BOWL
Both Quarterbacks claim to know Jesus personally.  Yup, just like the war's in the middle east, Both sides have god on their side.  They can't lose.  Remember their team mates had nothing to do with the game if they win.  It's all Jesus.

Amy Holmes The other Ann Coulter

by bookkillrr

Is it just me or does Amy Holmes of CNN bother others?
Every time I get all excited about something being discussed on CNN about President Obama, there she is being all "Ann Coulter"  Is it necessary for CNN to have Amy Holmes?  I was hoping the "Fair and Balanced" charade was over.  Now I could just turn off CNN and limit my tee vee machine to MSNBC, but I can't.  I am trying to ween myself off a little at a time.
