I’ve just read the first post on a new blog by a former meth user. It looks like it’s going to be a very interesting blog. Take a look: the Crystal Meth Curse

.

I wrote about meth in January of 2008. My title was Life or Meth. Meth is one of the top search words that brings people to this blog. For whatever reason, this topic is of interest to many people.

.

Meth is a huge problem in this country. It’s a health issue, a law enforcement issue, a family issue, an economic issue and more.

.

Does meth affect your life in some way, or are you just curious?

.

Put the Crystal Meth Curse on  your daily reading list and learn from someone who knows this drug personally.

She was surprised by how reasonable, polite and nice the people were … and, that’s what scared her.

My First Anti-Gay Marriage Rally

… They all said they had gay friends — a la Sarah Palin. They all “love the sinner.” And to be honest, I believe them. They were not horrible people. In fact, they were very sweet. And that’s what makes them a little scarier.

There’s a video with the post. You can read and watch:My First Anti-Gay Marriage Rally.

Elisabeth is a moron and then I have something important to say

Posted by: Helen Philpot | October 27, 2008

It must be hard to be both pro-war and pro-life at the same time and still look so perky that early in the morning. It’s as if she doesn’t lose a wink of sleep over it. What a brave little soldier she is.

Lately you have been screaming about that socialist Obama and his tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend (repeat until audience members scream “kill him” or the moose come home)… And yet while you were Mayor of Wasilla government spending went up and so did the sales tax. Hmmm. Maybe you should have a heart to heart with Joe the Plumber.

I remember sitting in the kitchen of my father’s family home with his parents when Goldwater was running for President. At the time, he was thought to be ultra-conservative.

.

Things have changed so much since then. I was young, and I did not understand much about politics other than that my family wanted him to win. And, I remember the cans of some kind of soft drink, maybe ginger ale, labeled as Goldwater.

.

Here’s an excerpt from the article from the article by his granddaughter C.C.Goldwater:

CC Goldwater

Why McCain Has Lost Our Vote

Posted October 23, 2008 | 10:28 AM (EST)

Myself, along with my siblings and a few cousins, will not be supporting the Republican presidential candidates this year. We believe strongly in what our grandfather stood for: honesty, integrity, and personal freedom, free from political maneuvering and fear tactics. I learned a lot about my grandfather while producing the documentary, Mr. Conservative Goldwater on Goldwater. Our generation of Goldwaters expects government to provide for constitutional protections. We reject the constant intrusion into our personal lives, along with other crucial policy issues of the McCain/Palin ticket.

My grandfather (Paka) would never suggest denying a woman’s right to choose. My grandmother co-founded Planned Parenthood in Arizona in the 1930’s, a cause my grandfather supported. I’m not sure about how he would feel about marriage rights based on same-sex orientation. I think he would feel that love and respect for ones privacy is what matters most and not the intolerance and poor judgment displayed by McCain over the years. Paka respected our civil liberties and passed on the message that that we should conduct our lives standing up for the basic freedoms we hold so dear.
