Ranch Greeting's Infodel!

Nice lil round up here, and even quite a few laf's, just wanted to make a couple quickies before work!

And speaking of "quickies" my compliment's on the excellent art piece's called "X-Ray Love" Joseph Brett piece!

Didnt even know Mellencamp's song was used, or even heard any of the NOM song's before for that matter (Prop 8 Tracker) ... get on their ass John! :)

"Just a lil Common Sense" on the personal Jesus thing ... What a Racket! You can go to any goddamn Brujeria/ Botanica joint and get them damn thing's (crosses with VooDoo effigies hangin) for a couple buck's each! Geeeezzz! What a burn, dude!

Green Eagle on ole Plumber Joe ... I was wonderin the other day what happened to that ole SOB?

From the Left on Hillary for 2012, nothin against Joe ... but that'll work ... Geeezzz ... what a goddamn mess overseas and the bunch of character's she's had to deal with ... maybe this would be a break at least!

Politicus USA ... women under the GOP ... many in that "swing" mode better think about that ... and not just women ... this GOP is wound up like doll's by their puppet master's and out to tear America to shred's.

Think Progress on the burning home's ... what a damn shame, been following that ... I cant even believe Beck's response to that. Yes ... this mass privatization movement is not what these GOP folk's are programmed to think it is ... they are not even thinking about what the Hell their supporting their so goddamn pumped up.

Um, um, um imagine that!... those ole christian's are after ole Santa again, heh? They ought to attack the Nativity scene ... on the Isis/ Horus Egyptian myth thing, or perhap's the MistleToe and Celt's, Dionysis and the Greek's and sleigh's, or all the rest of the Pagan root's ... but ole Jolly Santa ... who like's lil kid's to sit on his lap? Geeeezzz ... even the Pope and Vatican would support that! :)
