The Weekend Is Almost Here and I'm Putting On My S**t Kicking Boots and Giving Out Sticky Paws and Hairballs! (and only one kitty kiss and fuzzy hug, but there is music) ...
A huge sticky paw and a few hairballs too, to Georgia Governor Nathan Deal
for passing a bill yesterday that would expand already lenient gun laws. Come on! I mean no matter what side of the gun debate you are on who the H- E-double hockey sticks needs to carry guns in church?! And I'm sorry... silencers for hunting...really? http://news.msn.com/us/georgia-governor-signs-gun-carry-rights-expansion-into-law
Next up, shame on the Supreme Court and they get a couple of sticky paws up side the head for not only their decision this week on Affirmative Action; http://www.huffingtonpost.com/news/supreme-court-affirmative-action/ but also for their ruling on McCutcheon and letting more big anonymous money into our election process; http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mansur-gidfar/mccutcheon-supreme-court_b_5077459.html
A super huge fuzzy hug and a kitty kiss to Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa. Who had some wise words to respond to his colleagues for blocking the nomination of Debo Adegbile for chief of the justice departments civil rights division and for their reason why they did. If you don't think racism still exists, read the transcript for a gut check; http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/05/tom-harkin-doj-civil-rights-nominee_n_4907866.html?utm_hp_ref=tw
And a super sticky paw to Cliven Bundy and all those guns out there and the people willing to use them in this situation and to Fox News and others who have blown this whole thing into something that it's just NOT for the sake of hearing themselves talk!
In weeks passed I haven't brought up the whole Cliven Bundy situation because, well because really what is there to say ... But, after the last comments made... if you don't think racism is a problem anymore as is apparently the case with the Supreme Court, and it's OK with you that the Supreme Court ruled to gut the voting rights act last summer, then you really need to listen to this because what you will hear is a large portion of the country to some degree. Don't get me wrong I am all for free speech I just have a problem with the fact that there are people out there who cry freedom of speech but don't feel they have to back up their position with any facts; it's the old: "it's true because I said it" theory...
And last but by no means least... for all you music lovers one of the greatest songs of the 70's by Peter Paul and Mary;
Don't forget to watch Puppy Love on CNN Sunday April 27th at 10PM ET
Documentarian Morgan Spurlock is doing a show about volunteering at an animal shelter...
Have a great weekend!
