This and That

It's about time that I changed my post.  I know, I am very slow and I do apologize for not being more efficient.   Because I have so many things to write about I just throw up my hands and give up in exasperation. 

I do want you to know that I read as many of your posts as I can, but I am now a lurker and do not always have time to comment.  So sorry.

Instead of writing a lengthy post on one of the many terrible things that are going on, I will touch on a few of them.


Aside from the human tragedy in Japan the Nuclear situation is dire.  It makes me realize that we need to start fighting for a nuclear free world again.  They still don't have a solution on  how to store the waste material.  Why are we not spending all of our energy dollars on developing alternate energy?  

Solar and wind are free, but, like the preacher said about giving money to the Church, "Water is free, but it takes money to pipe it to you."  So there can be the profit motive to inspire the scientists to figure it all out and for the big industries to develop the windmills and panels.

Then there's Libya.  The hawks are trying to get us in another Mid-east  war by imposing a 'no fly' zone.  Of course that is not a simple solution either, because the first thing you have to do is destroy Qaddafi's planes and, guess what, you are in another war.

Then there's Wisconsin.  In spite of the stupid Republicans forcing their will on the people, I think the people will ultimately win this one. It's not going away.  The Union guys just withdrew a total of $200,000  from a bank that does business with the Koch brothers.  Good for them; hit them in the pocket book, say I. 

Then there's the budget battle in D. C.  I am ready to scream over the sheer stupidity of the cuts they are proposing.  There are too many to go into so I will just say, I hope cooler and smarter heads prevail.


And last, here are more giggles.  It may be a while before I post again as life has really gotten in the way big time.

I just re-posted this and I lost the previous comments.

For those of you who couldn't see the bumper stickers, they should be visible now.

I LOVE the bumper stickers, CRS is a common saying in our household (lol)

I agree with all you have said. I just have to give a big sigh for all the things that are going on & I am really tired of war!

take care

Your bumper stickers made me smile.
I find out so much about what is going on in the world from you.
Take care. You were one of the first to comment when I started writing almost 2 years ago. You are special to this lady who now lives at the edge of the woods and her life is mostly nature and family :)

I needed the bumper stickers after all the misery of those things you wrote about. I specially like "At my age happy hour is a nap."
