And I Thought It Was Just A Good Acid Trip

In Memory of “TG”

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

“TG” the Cat passed away yesterday but left wonderful memories and a great story. Years ago, my friend Lee went to visit a man who’s friend Tony died and left a kitten named “Scorpio.”  In his grief, the friend sent Scorpio to Lollypop Farm, a local animal shelter.

Lee was horrified.  She didn’t even know Tony had a cat because his building didn’t allow pets.  She quickly called the shelter and rescued Scorpio.  Never being shy about her opinions, Lee thought “Scorpio” was a dumb name and renamed her “Tony’s Girl” (TG for short) in memory of the cat’s first owner.

TG lived a loved life for 15-years with Lee and her husband Paul.  Some people might say TG had some lousy breaks in having a person who died and then being dumped in an animal shelter.  However I can tell you for sure, TG knew she was one of the luckiest cats in the world.

Good News Law-Abiding Killers: It’s 10 Again

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Mass murderers in New York State are confused. The ban on rifle magazines holding more than seven bullets was set to start April 15. If you wanted to kill more than seven people with one magazine, you had to do it before then. The 7-bullet count has now been suspended “indefinitely” so the Governor’s budget can pass.

Bullet clips are only manufactured in 10- and 15-round sizes. Murderers were supposed to load them with only 7-bullets. Who would have counted the number of bullets loaded?  That part wasn’t made clear in the bill.

Since enforcing the 7-bullet limit wasn’t included, the NYS Legislature kind of counted on killers to police themselves I guess.  It actually may have worked in some cases.  Before he killed anyone, a mass murderer may have remembered NYS gun laws and died laughing.

God Said WHAT!?

No quee-uhs!

How does it feels to be on the same side of the gay marriage issue as the Westboro Baptist Church? Those are the religious nitwits who protest at Veterans’ funerals to show God’s displeasure with gays in the military.  They wave their trademark “God Hates Fags!” signs with one hand and clutch their Bibles with the other.

The Pat Robertson-like people bellowing against gay marriage today in front of the Supreme Court aren’t too far from that. Oh sure,  Pat’s people have a few more teeth and wear shoes – but he did say legalizing gay marriage starts us on the slippery slope that could lead to “sex with ducks.”  My favorite women singers did a music video for that on which you can click below.

50-years ago interracial marriage was banned in many of our states.  It took a Supreme Court decision (LOVING v. VIRGINIA, 388 U.S. 1 (1967)) to drag them into the 20th century.

Gay marriage will become legal eventually – it’s as inevitable as interracial marriage.  But it will become accepted only after a few old generations fart their last breaths of hatred – just like marriage between blacks and whites.  If Jesus meets these haters on the other side, they’ve got lots of ‘splaining to do.
