Date Night

I swear I looked at the calendar yesterday and there was no date night there. I don't remember making plans or reservations. Apparently I forgot that I had tickets to the theatre event of the year. And that is all it is theatre. Who needs anything real and substantive when you have fear and idiocy to feed on.

I don't want higher taxes, but someone will have to pay for this war and playing the "everyone but me" game won't work forever.

I don't think aborition is right, but I (and everyone else) have no business making a decision so intimate and personal for anyone but me.

My marriage is between a man and a woman, but I know that love and commitment come in more shapes and sizes than I can comprehend and if you find that with someone I don't care what package they come in you deserve a life of love and happiness.

I don't want to spend my life paying for people who never manage to get on their feet, but when you take away the anonimity and you see that it is a person you worked with, went to church with or heaven forbid love you give from your heart and remember that Christ tells us that what we do to the least of them we do also to him.

I know that we are smart enough to not depend on the dinosaurs for everything we use.

I know that I am a woman with two small children who would protect them from unnecessary pain and couldn't imagine being absent for the most important moments of their lives for my work. I think it is hard to relate to anyone who would knowingly.

I know business and capitalism work, but I also know that businesses make bad choices bowing to the all important bottom line and they require rules and oversight. Hello Enron

I enjoy hunting and fishing but that doesn't mean that I am more homegrown or down to earth than you.

I know that I am smart. I know that most people are smart. I know that if you treat us like people and not mindless reptilian brained idiots you will find that we are more than you give us credit for. Don't make me question your honesty and integrity by using banal recycled crap and telling me it is change. Oh and seriously abstinence only. We don't come prepared for a test without reading the book, we don't empower ourselves by denying what we are. Our children are smart too. Smarter than we give them credit for when we teach them.

I belive that we are done on the path we have been on. I pray that everyone else sees it. Neither is perfect but one is clear.

I am stepping off my soap box now.
