I may be able to post a fairly recent photo of the Two Cutest Kitties on the Interwebs, if this lousy laptop will let me. Hate to disappoint you:

I kid, I kid..

I kid, I don't really hate my blog. I haven't had a laptop for over a year, and iPad is not that friendly with my posts. Plus Twink is crawling all over my lap as I type and my borrowed laptop is only 32-bit.

Several new blogs I've been following - Grace for My Heart, Defeating the Dragons, Slacktivist and Progress, Not Perfection. Put Patheos in your Favorites - you can choose any channel from Evangelical to Progressive to Wicca, but you should go there.

Here's a reminder for those Reagan Worshippers out there:

And something I've seen firsthand in 'free' labor from inmates at work. The cost and length of time to be served seemed out of control.  This could be any of us in the future:

And I'm very encouraged by these organizations ministering to families in danger and rescuing the pets as well:

As a former and current government employee I like the call and response of this list:

Too long

I hate blogs that don't stay current. So, I hate mine.
I've been busy being employed and very happy about that. Life in Pitstop is hard, but jobless in Pitstop is even harder, so I'm not complaining.
In other news, tonight a suicide was discovered in the Springs, the deceased was "angry at the government ".
"Screw you Government, I'm DEAD".
As First Draft says, Malakia of the week".

"But We Don't Know Anything About Him!"

So says my Supervisor, The Birther. It was hard to keep quiet since the election, but I had to say undercover as the token Democrat in the P.W. There was a deathly quiet as my co-workers contemplated their horrible fates under Obamacare.
Hee, Hee. Here's to the SecretMuslimUsuperFrenchGayFascist:
Congratulations, Mr. President.

Thanks, Rob Quark

Good a Denver native and frequent visitor to the Aurora Mall in my youth, I am stunned this morning's shooting at the movie theater....but our intrepid interviewer, that bastion of reporting, KOAA's Rob 'Quarky' decided to drive 105 minutes to the scene of the crime to insert himself into the news feed....reporting how he had made the 105 minute trip yet 15 years ago to cover the Columbine Massacre and couldn't believe his good fortune at snagging a spot on  the extended newscast and a room at the Greenwood Village Sleep Inn to report on the tragic events.
Great reporting, Rob. Glad you had the good fortune to have a job to put you in front of the camera at important events.

I'm back

I do not like coming across orphaned blogs, so forgive my lack of posts. Started a contract job this Spring, and the atmosphere, desert conditions and general Republicanism surrounding me has had me too depressed to post. In addition, Google warned me they were about to blow up this blog, but refused to acknowledge my request to move my account to their new Intrawebs. Or something.
Next up: Caturday on Sunday!

Marcy Wheeler: Most pro–Blunt-Rubio Amendment senators have likely used birth control


“I confess. I’m contemplating calling all the Senators who voted for the Blunt Amendment yesterday to ask for a statement detailing:
▪ What the Senators’ history of reproductive choice has been, including details on what kinds of birth control they’ve used and who paid for it
▪ Whether the Senators (or their spouses) have used erectile dysfunction drugs, and who paid for it
Mind you, I think such questions are inappropriate.
But given that 48 Senators–including 3 Democrats and 4 women–voted yesterday to say that employers should have really intrusive control over their employees’ healthcare decisions (including, but in no way limited, to reproductive health), it seems fair to at least inquire whether these men and women have been relying on birth control to plan their families, whether their use of birth control violates their religion’s stated doctrine, and whether taxpayers paid for birth control during their child-bearing years”.

Why Obamacare is good for America - The Denver Post

Tell me again how going to the E.R. is a good option for the uninsured…

“People without public or private insurance coverage are costly to all of us. In a familiar mechanism called "cost-shifting," hospitals charge higher rates for services to those with insurance in order to offset the losses from uncompensated emergency department care. Insurers raise rates to cover the cost of inflated bills, and the uninsured and underinsured are sent to collection agencies and/or forced into bankruptcy. Companies respond by scaling back on or eliminating health care benefits for their employees, and more Coloradans fall from the insured universe.”

All the benefits laid out nicely here:
