Matthews and Walsh Slam Ron Christie for Cheney's Hackery
Posted: 31 Dec 2009 06:00 PM PST
Looks like good Tweety was back today taking a whack at Dick Cheney's former aide Ron Christie along with Salon's Joan Walsh. True to form Christie defended Cheney's recent stenography session at The Politico. Ron Christie is one of the more annoying pundits out there so this didn't bother me one bit. I'll give him this as annoying as he is though. He's got more stones than his… Continue

A brokedown, boozy c&w singer.
A great Jeff Bridges performance.
Some actors are blessed. Jeff Bridges is one of them. Ever since his breakthrough role in "The Last Picture Show" in 1971, he has, seemingly without effort, created a series of characters who we simply believe, even the alien "Starman." He doesn't do this with mannerisms but with their exclusion; his acting is as clear as running water. Look at him playing Bad Blake in "Crazy Heart." The notion… Continue

2009: A year of Fox News political activism
With the inauguration of President Obama in 2009, Fox News transformed itself from a conservative media outlet into a partisan, right-wing political organization that openly viewed itself as the "voice of the opposition."

Breathe in the beauty that is around you
Let not the winds of change confound you
on your way
The child within must have some toys
For to create is just you breathing out
Taking in and breathing out
(The artist is at work)
It comes so naturally on the breath
which heaves and hisses as it tries to articulate
Always with the understanding that he will be misunderstood
For it is the process that must… Continue

Our Relation with Creation
The Fabric of Spirit is Woven
Into our very Being
Brought in Waves of Breath and Light
As we Embrace the Pure Energy of our Being
We use it to feed our thoughts and perceptions
And create our way of Life
You are the Conductor of your Song
You are the Artist choosing the palette
For your Masterpiece
Yet the energy of Creation is of Spirit
And Invokes the Universe
As It is… Continue

The Understanding of Intent
Divine Intent is the Energy with Which
The tone of our action is set
When Making Resolutions
we are re- looking at Solutions
We are setting out on a new adventure
Into understanding and encountering our selves
We will also be calling upon others at times
So there could be interaction of how we relate
To others and seek their help
And we can also see how we are reflected through others
