Thought of the Day



"Where does discontent start? You are warm enough, but you shiver. You are fed, yet hunger gnaws you. You have been loved, but your yearning wanders in new fields. And to prod all these there's time, the Bastard Time."

~John Steinbeck

The Daily Motivator

I have been getting the paid version of the Daily Motivator emailed to me everyday for over 7 years now. A personal ad I was reading once had a link to it. Sometimes my hormones actually can be insightful I guess.

Life has been happening all around me these days it seems. For good and for bad. For right now, this minute, this hour, this day, I'm alright, it's all good. I have everything I need.

I need to remember that...

How you look at it
+++++++++++++++++++

When you look at the world, what is the first thing that comes to your attention? Do you zero in on the problems, the heartaches, the fears and the disappointments, or do you first take note of the beauty, the joys and the positive possibilities?

If you look at life through a lens of negativity, life will dutifully arrange itself to meet your expectations. When you approach life from a more positive perspective, your expectations will just as surely be met.

Is it unrealistic to look at the bright side, to remain generally positive, and to expect the best in life? No, because reality itself is neutral, and what you get from it depends upon how you view it and what you make of it.

The raw forces, circumstances and events are, for the most part, out of your control. Yet you can completely control the way you perceive, respond, adapt and yes, even prosper under their influence.

The control you exercise over your own perceptions, thoughts and actions will make all the difference in your life.

Reality is what it is, and your own relationship to that reality is precisely whatever you choose for it to be.

There is goodness, there is beauty, there is love and joy and boundless opportunity when you choose to see it. Look realistically at the world, see the very best, and bring it joyfully to life in each moment.

Pope Says Abortion, Gay Marriage Are 'Obstacles' to World Peace

Religion News Service

by Francis X. Rocca

VATICAN CITY (RNS) Nuclear arms proliferation, environmental pollution and economic inequality are threats to world peace -- but so are abortion, birth control and same-sex marriage, Pope Benedict XVI said in a statement released by the Vatican Tuesday (Dec. 11).

"The Human Family, a Community of Peace" is this year's papal message for the World Day of Peace, which will be observed Jan. 1.

Presenting the nuclear family as the "first and indispensable teacher of peace" and the "primary agency of peace," the 15-page document links sexual and medical ethics to international relations.

"Everything that serves to weaken the family based on the marriage of a man and woman, everything that directly or indirectly stands in the way of its openness to the responsible acceptance of new life ... constitutes an objective obstacle on the road to peace," Benedict writes.

Regarding actual military conflicts, the pope laments unspecified African civil wars and violence in the Middle East.

Condemning what he describes as a global "arms race," Benedict calls for a "progressive and mutually agreed dismantling of existing nuclear weapons."

At a press conference held to present the document, a top Vatican official criticized the U.S. for its handling of Iran's suspected nuclear arms program, saying that Washington's rhetoric had fomented international tensions.

"All these threats, all these worries, these threats of war and invasion ... harm the international atmosphere because they can provoke worries and the reinforcement of security with the production of new arms," said Cardinal Renato Martino, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, and a former Vatican envoy to the United Nations.

In his message, the pope also endorses greater cooperation on environmental protection, writing that "further international agencies may need to be established" for the purpose. He also calls for an "equitable distribution of wealth" in a globalized world.



Ignorance, intolerance and bigotry.

Those are the obstacles to peace.

When are we going to learn ...

I spread your ashes today...



I wasn't sure where or when. I brought them with me today though. I thought I was going to do it at the sunset beach. That was one of the places I could let you run.

Instead we headed to Nauset. I didn't feel like letting the air out of my tires but I needed to be at the ocean. We drove out to the break. It was a beautiful day.

I forgot the key to the box your ashes were in. I had to break the lock.

Kokoro sat with me as we watched your ashes slowly mix with the waves.

We stayed until the water was clear again.

Now you can run free anytime you want.

We were together for such a short time.

But you'll always be with me Tonka, my best little boy.


27 Years...


I was hanging out at Bill Mc's doing b-hits in his bedroom.

We had the tv on volume off listening to Plastic Ono Band.

He saw it first...

I turned down the music and we sat there stunned and stoned.

It was a long ride back to East Harwich.

I'll never forget that night.

Murray: Gay marriage will get vote

By DAVID KIBBE
TIMES BOSTON BUREAU
BOSTON - Senate President Therese Murray said yesterday that she would work to defeat a proposed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, but she would not use parliamentary moves to prevent the Legislature from voting on it.

''My vote is going to be just what it was last time,” Murray, D-Plymouth, told reporters on her first full day as leader of the state Senate, the Associated Press reported. ''But I'm not going to move to adjourn. I will call for a vote and I will try to help the (gay marriage) advocates get the votes that they need.” cont.

We have or work cut out for us. Check out Marry in Massachusetts' spin on it.

Does it ever stop? The hate the bigotry the fear?

Beautiful spring day here on Cape Cod. Going for a hike in Ptown Bringing my camera so I will be posting some pictures when I get back.

Nothing much else.

The afa Bigots Are At it Again...

I read earlier over at Pam's House Blend that the 'American Family Association' has issued one of their 'action alerts' telling their hordes of homophobes to contact their representatives regarding the pending H.R. 254: David Ray Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007.

Apparently these idiots are saying that if this bill passes life as we know it will be over. Oh yeah, and that the world is flat, and it's at the center of the universe, and it's only 6,500 years old, and we were made from dust and a human rib.

Here is part of their call to bigotry:

WARNING! The video is highly offensive, but it is real footage from the actual parade.

WARNING! The video is highly offensive, but it is real footage from the actual parade.

March 20, 2007

A new "hate crimes" bill further protecting homosexual activity has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act would increase protection for the kind of activity shown on this video.

The bill is the first step toward silencing any opposition to the homosexual lifestyle. This video will show you the kind of activity this bill protects. The video was shot during an actual homosexual pride parade in Chicago.

If this "hate crimes" bill is passed, and you publicly protest, complain or oppose the type of activity in this video, your action could eventually be construed to be subject to prosecution for a criminal act.

To stop this bill, please take these actions today.

  1. Click here to send an email to your representative asking him or her to strongly oppose the "hate crimes" bill.

  2. Please share this page with friends and family. The average person has no clue about this "hate crimes" bill. The only way we have of getting the word out is with the help of individuals like you.

Now I had some fun with this earlier. I sent a message to the guy who made/posted the video on YouTube and told him that the afa was using it so he made the video private so when you click to play it it just says "Loading". hehehehe

So what was so offensive in the video you may ask?

Nothing... seriously.

I watched it and kept waiting for some sort of titillating sexual behavior but it was the usual Gay pride parade; a bunch of guys & gals dancing riding on floats and having a good time.

It was nothing compared to some of the stuff I saw when I went to Mardi Gras in New Orleans or what I have seen watching videos of Carnivale parades. What I do remember about Mardi Gras was a bunch of really drunk mostly heterosexual 'activity' which would make even the most sexually liberated among us blush. I saw so may tits, dicks and vagina's I thought I was at a taping of a Howard Stern show. Not that there's anything wrong with it...

Ya know what I find offensive though...

I find it offensive that a bunch of bigoted imbeciles like theses brain dead heartless fucks from the afa are actually given legitimacy by the MSM and our government.

These people are delusional, extremely dangerous and need to be marginalized.

Therese Murray Elected Massachusetts Senate Pres and the Bigots at Mass Family Becomes Even More Irrelevant

This is good...really really good. She is a strong proponent of Gay civil rights & SSM and she voted against the letting the bigoted petition to repeal Same Sex Marriage go to a vote.

And, she is the first woman in Massachusetts to hold the Senate Presidency. Man do I love my State!

AND...we elected Sarah Peake an openly Gay woman to fill the seat left by the repuglican, Shirley Gomes who (no, really?) voted to "let the people vote".

This is really going to send Chris Mineau and the rest of the homo bigots at Mass Family into a tizzy!

as I so elegantly put it in an email I just sent to them:

"All I want to do is gloat. You don’t stand a chance in hell of repealing my civil rights now!!

You are now nothing but an irrelevant bunch of hypocritical bigots who having nothing left but hate.

Naner naner naner!

Sincerely,

Lee Giroux"


I told them didn't I!
