You guys are the best

Reposted from Community Fundraisers by JekyllnHyde

We had a fundraiser for fineena a couple of days back and you guys kicked ass. I can't tell you how thankful I am for your kindness and generosity. These qualities are the finest the human race has to offer and this community overflows with them. It does my old heart good to see it.

Her name is Fineena. Many of you know her. She's been around since '08 and is known for her personal generosity and enthusiastic participation in our community. She's also known for the cool scarves she makes by hand. She sells them here. This would be a great time to stock up on handmade scarves. They make wonderful gifts.

The Glorious, Notorious RBG

by PsychoSuperMom

Reposted from PsychoSuperMom by PsychoSuperMom

Last week's interview on MSNBC gave us even more reasons to admire Justice Ginsburg.  On top of being brilliant, opinionated, and articulate, she has a great sense of humor about her status as a cultural icon, so here's an attempt to salute her in style (as well as thoroughly embarrassing my teenage son):

Palin's recent experiment with adlibbing was music to this satirist's ears . . . .

There is overwhelming evidence that one of the best ways to get children to remember something is setting it to music.  There is also overwhelming evidence that vaccines are safe and effective at preventing serious diseases, which means parents who ignore that overwhelming evidence are acting like children (or rather, idiots, since children have an excuse for their ignorance).  
(Complete disclosure: I had Rubella as an infant, before the vaccination was common and when I was too young to get vaccinated anyway. At the time, Tetracycline was the antibiotic of choice, which saved babies' lives but caused major dental damage, and which has cost me tens of thousands of dollars in dental work and enormous pain.  So don't preach to me about how these childhood diseases are benign!!)
Since evidence, rational argument, and logic have failed to convince the anti-vaccine crowd, maybe we need to set it to music . . . .

One might think from the runaway success of the books, and the huge interest in the movie, that the suburban moms who are supposedly the target market are sex-starved porn fans.  Or that they have lost their ability to distinguish good (or even adequate) writing from "Oh jeez, my inner goddess is doing the merengue while she bites her lip, triple crap."
Actually, I believe 50 Shades taps into our deepest darkest fantasy - of someone else making decisions and doing the planning for at least a few hours.  And for that we will put up with lousy writing, a hero who is more of an abuser than a fun BDSM devote, and sex scenes that aren't very sexy.  At least someone else planned them for us!

Fox News Did What?

by PsychoSuperMom

Reposted from PsychoSuperMom by PsychoSuperMom

We're used to sentences beginning with 'Fox News' and ending with 'told a lie,' 'made up facts,' 'had an idiot guest 'expert,' and so on.  But how many times do you read 'Fox News Apologizes?'  (Granted, they didn't apologize for that stupid 'Muslim no-go-zones' nonsense until it caused international outrage and got them mercilessly mocked by comedians here and in France, so don't worry, they haven't turned over a new leaf . . . . )

Mitt's ba-a-a-ack

by PsychoSuperMom

Reposted from PsychoSuperMom by PsychoSuperMom

The GOP has always been the party of nostalgia - women's roles from the 1950s, economic inequality from the 1920s, sex education from the dark ages - so it makes sense that the race for the 2016 Republican nomination is a giant re-run.  And nowhere is that more obvious - or more entertainingly ludicrous - than Romney's return, which is worthy of its own nostalgic sitcom theme song . . .

First it was science ("What global warming, it's snowing!"), then history ("Nahh, the Civil War was just about economic stuff").  Now the GOP Congressional leadership has taken on mathematics - since their 'tax cuts trickle down and create magical revenue' nostalgia wants to take us back to the Gilded Age of the 1920s, here's an appropriate ditty:
