Ramblings from a relocated and under-employed Southeastern Kentuckian. Liberal politics, art, music, movies, books,sports, games, whatever else strikes my fancy....Sad and strange the days that are no more...

Rand Paul's Newest Ad? Stomping On Hippie Chicks
Rand "Keep them chicks away from me" Paul ad.
Perfectly fitting. If elected I believe this will be the ritualized punishment for all Democrats at his events. "May you live in interesting times".
Thanks to the General.

Obama's Weekly Address, On Outsourcing Jobs Overseas
Has President Obama lost his love and longing for bi-partisanship with RGOP(Rabid Grand Old Party)? Here he is in this week's speech showing Republicans* as(always) grand old hypocrits regarding American jobs.
* Note; Not that I consider the Democrats a ton better. BUT, they are better...There's the rub.
I've been on a bit of a sabbatical from the old Blog. For one thing this low-end part time chef job I have has varying hours, and that's been difficult. We have our first granddaughter(YAY), I'm STILL looking for a good job. All that means little time...Annnddd, I've also finally given in and joined Facebook. It's begun to take the (little) time I had for my pet Blog here.
Between Twitter and Facebook, work, WoW, etc. My vague little known Blog is becoming an orphan Alas...I'll keep it in suspended animation long as I can. Mourned by only me(sniffle).

The Old and White Tea Party
From Rolling Stone
Tea & Crackers
How corporate interests and Republican insiders built the Tea Party monster
A hall full of elderly white people in Medicare-paid scooters, railing against government spending and imagining themselves revolutionaries as they cheer on the vice-presidential puppet hand-picked by the GOP establishment. If there exists a better snapshot of everything the Tea Party represents, I can't imagine it.

Saving The Loggerhead Sea Turtle
The efforts to save a species from BP oil oblivion;
The BP-Spill Baby-Turtle Brigade
...The hatchlings from this season’s first nests, however, were on schedule to scramble into the Gulf of Mexico only a few months after the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig, at what looked to be the height of one of the worst man-made environmental disasters in history. By June, the sargassum in that part of the gulf was heavily oiled. Soon, it appeared to be largely gone: incinerated in controlled burns, maybe, or hauled up by skimmer boats. And so state and federal wildlife agencies came up with a radical plan. Sea-turtle eggs laid on beaches in Alabama and the Florida Panhandle would be dug up during their very last days of incubation, packed into Styrofoam coolers and shipped to a climate-controlled warehouse at the Kennedy Space Center on the opposite coast of Florida. There, after hatching, the baby turtles would be released into the oil-free Atlantic. When I arrived in Alabama in late July, tens of thousands of turtle eggs, from hundreds of nests, were already in the process of being relocated — all during a point in their development when even a slight jolt to the egg could be lethal. In short, America was orchestrating the migration of an entire generation of sea turtles, slow and steady, overland, in a specially outfitted FedEx truck...
