I just posted this on Facebook!

Hi. Given the current state of this country, our congress, our state (Maine), the insanity of the Republican/teabagger party and the state of my checkbook (I have a LOT less money than the Koch brothers and Halliburton), I'm going to be taking a new approach this election year. While I can't be making large financial donations, I still DO have a very big and opinionated mouth. SO, I'm going to be spending my most of my time here on Facebook this year advocating generally for the election of Democrats nationally and specifically for the election of Democrats up here in Maine, especially for Mike Michaud's to become our next governor, Shenna Bellows to be our next US Senator and the reelection of Meghan Meloney as our Kennebec County District Attorney. Mike will bring jobs, stability ad respect back to Maine. Shenna will be the voice of working class mainers, women, veterans and LGBT Mainers that we lack now in Susan Collins. Meghan is, in my 59 years on this Earth, the most dedicated to justice DA I've EVER seen! I hope that I will be making contributions that my Facebook friends will consider worthy of sharing to further our support our candidates as we go forward this election year. GO MIKE, SHENNA & MEGHAN!!!

PEACE!

My "Close Encounter Of The Turd Kind" With A teabagger Yesterday.

Hi. My job is working in Community Support with adults with mental illnesses. I take them out into the community so they can do the things they want to do, enjoy doing or need to do. It Does NOT pay much, but, at the same time, it's also not a very difficult job to do and I like it.

My car's back is loaded with bumper stickers touting my beliefs. I have Obama stickers from 2008 ND 2012, Ready for Hillary, ACLU, pro ACA, Michaud for Governor, Shenna Bellows for Senate ( ), and, last but not least, an old sticker that says "When Bush Took Office Gas was $1.46".

Yesterday, I was driving my client back to the office so he could fix his lunch and a van pulled next to me and the guy started shouting something to me that I couldn't hear. At the light I pulled next to him and asked what he said and he asked how I felt when gas was $3.75 under Obama. I told him that I felt a hell of a lot better then than when it was $4.29 under George W Shithead. He said that at least Shithead kept us safe and I said that about 3000 American families didn't feel safe while Bush read "My Pet Goat" as their loved ones burned to death. He said that Obama was a Kenyan socialist and I told him to take it back to his teabagger rally and that there should be one starting in about 14 seconds and put my window up. I can only deal with just so much idiocy in one dose. I'm surprised that I didn't hear that we had to "fight'em over there before we had to fight'em over here"!

I know that the teabaggers are still out there and, newsflash, they are NEVER going away! That doesn't mean that I have to let their drivel go unanswered OR that I have to respect them in the least. Our local Democratic Chairlady points out that the teabaggers' beliefs are sincere. I always counter that by saying that the beliefs of the Salem witch hunters were sincere also...and THEY were BS, too!

That's my 2 cents...and quite possibly overpriced at that!

PEACE!
