Sandy's coming up the coast and looking to tango with Iceberg Slim coming down from the north country, which might make for one hell of a party here in the Land of Oz late today and tomorrow. I'm hoping they won't hurt any innocent bystanders.
T-bone Walker doing the classic tuen that he wrote back in the '40's.
I hope you dig it.
If you in my neck of the woods, stay safe.

Decisions, decisions....conflicting thoughts dance like GMO sugarplums in my head...
1. Maybe I won't vote at all. It's a completely corrupt system, top to bottom, and my participation only serves to validate it. Chivalry demands that I not be a party to any untruth...
2. Neither Obama nor Romney are worth the powder to blow them to hell, and anyone who actually votes FOR either of these smarmy bastards should get psychiatric help...
3. Ron Paul might have had a chance to upset the apple cart --- IF the vote-counting wasn't rigged...
4. Gary Johnson, Jill Stein and Rocky Anderson are ALL better candidates than Obamney -- but none of them has a snowballs chance in hell of winning...
Back in 2000, Mel Carnahan, Missouri senatorial candidate died a very short time before the election, so his name remained on the ballot. He was elected posthumously over the incumbent John Ashcroft, which tells you that folks in Missouri have some very sound judgement.
George McGovern, one of the most stand-up guys to ever come down the political pike, ran for Prez in 1972 against Richard Nixon ( I trust I don't have to sing to you of Nixon's vices). Mr. McGovern died just the other day.
So I'm going to write in George McGovern for President.
He should have been Prez back in '72, but the collective voting "we" just blew it. Voting for him now might just be the perfect way to say "Go fuck yourself" to the Tweedle-dee & Tweedle-dum corporate pimps running on behalf of the Big Party (or "Parties" if you still believe there are two).
liberty & justice,

PLEASE JOIN “TEAM SIRI”: A FUNDRAISER
Rainbow Meadows recently received a call from a local undersheriff that a young horse had been abandoned, wandering alone and lost for a week. Siri’s story is the sad reality of abandonment, neglect and illness.
Please join "Team Siri" by giving your love and funds to a young filly that has suffered greatly from man's injustices. Quiet and gentle in attitude, this young Thoroughbred or Appendix Quarter Horse is in urgent need of surgery to remove an extremely large hernia. Our vet has sent Siri's medical information to a surgeon at an equine specialty clinic. We have received his response and a pre-surgical examination and surgery will be scheduled for the near future. The large hernia can be seen protruding from Siri's abdomen.
A hernia results from the protrusion of an organ and/or tissue through an abnormal opening.” In Siri’s case, it is likely composed of skin, subcutaneous tissue and intestines. It is also hugely apparent on her abdomen, painful and has been present her entire life. At this point, the surgery is serious but Siri can’t continue without it.
Please help Siri with your prayers, love and donations (no amount is too small and all will add up to change Siri’s life which up to her rescue has been a life pain and loss.) Our fundraising goal is $2500 and all donations will go directly to Siri’s surgery and/or continued medical and wellness care. As a love offering to you, Rainbow Meadows will send donors of $50 - $99 a beautifully hand-crafted horse note card (suitable for a Valentine’s message to a loved one.) Donations of $100 or more will receive a lovely glass heart. Following her surgery, a drawing will be held for “Siri’s Victory Heart”—an artisan crafted heart shaped pendent made of horseshoe nails (with a leather cord). All donors will be eligible to win this unique pendant in tribute to a horse whose name means “beautiful victory”. PLEASE INDICATE YOUR DONATION IS “FOR SIRI.” Donations can be made through PayPal or by sending a check to Rainbow Meadows.
The pictures below are representative of the cards and glass heart pendants (the cards vary slightly and the hearts are of various colors and designs.) A picture of “Siri’s Victory Heart” is also attached.
We thank all of you for your hearts of pure love. Team Siri, we will keep you updated on her journey.

Please specify your donation is for Siri.
Rainbow Meadows is a 501 (c)(3) IRS recognized charity and GFAS verified facility.

The first Muslim I ever met was a real horseman. Spoke lovingly of his horses. Didn't use bits or spurs (and this was quite a while back -- way before "natural horsemanship" showed up on the scene...) Turns out Islam has a special reverence for horses.
As the saying goes, the friend of my friend is my friend.

A long, long time ago in another galaxy, far, far away...
And we're still fighting the same fight.
If the dream of "liberty and justice for all" has to go down
Let's at least go down swinging.
We owe that much, if not to ourselves,
Then to our forebears, who fought and died for that freedom
And to our descendents who will rightly curse us
If we allow it to be taken from us
Complacently and compliantly
The NDAA constitutes an imminent threat of grave bodily injury or death to EVERY American.
It is lawful and moral to use force to protect yourself or another innocent person from such a threat.

Obama or Romney?
Arsenic or cyanide?
Talk about a distinction without a difference.
No matter who wins, you lose.
Try something new.
Try voting FOR someone you really believe in, rather than trying to "pick a winner" or figure out which sob is marginally "less" evil.
