Sitting Through the Lies

(c) by Mary Griggs Most of us, even masochists, surround ourselves with people who respect us and support us. Not all of them will be like-minded but they will, generally, not denigrate us to our faces.That’s why it can be such a shock to hear the voices of our enemies, as they spout lies in their testimony against laws that would protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender…See More

Twenty seven dead in a elementary school in Connecticut with twenty-two of them children between the ages of five and ten sure puts your day in perspective, doesn't it? That 18-wheeler going below the speed limit in the passing lane on Highway 90 at 6 o'clock this morning? Those crowds I had to battle at three different malls? That unopened 2L bottle of vodka I smashed on the driveway? On most…See More

RNC 2012 - A Storm More Disorganized Than Isaac

Q: How do you know Isaac is a liberal?A: He keeps moving left of the Republicans. Isaac is like most of the rest of the nation, apparently. The Republican National Convention began, after a storm delay, this week. The zealots of the party, however, wasted no time in crafting a platform that is closer to the goals of the Taliban than to those of hard-working Americans. Instead of realistic proposals on fixing the economic mess, Republicans adopted positions steeped in ideological purity that…See More

Women's Equality Day 2012

by Mary Griggs All year, religious extremists have been waging a relentless war against women. The right of women to sovereignty over their bodies has been undermined by personhood bills, attempts to criminalize miscarriages, bills legislating state sponsored rape through transvaginal ultrasounds and judicial decisions allowing doctors to lie to women about the…See More

The Olympic Rainbow Rings and a Raspberry

 Like people all over the globe, I've been watching many, many hours of Olympic coverage on my television and computer (stupid NBC Olympics app is not compatible with my phone!). I've watched in awe the pageantry from London and have gotten teary eyed at the pure joy in the faces of the medal winners. We all have our…See More

Chick-filet-a-gay

Every single person who deliberately ate at Chick-fil-a on Wednesday and claimed they did so to protect Freedom of Speech or Freedom of Religion is operating under a misconception. Mr. Cathy and the entire Chick-fil-a family is allowed, under the US Constitution, to have beliefs which differ from mine and I will defend their right to express them and I will fight any attempt to silence them. But this isn’t about Christianity, the 1st Amendment or two crucial pickles. It is about money from…See More
