I'm sick of the silence on the pipeline protest!

275 people have been arrested. Some of them celebrities. This alone seems like it should be big enough "news" to get a shout out on every major news channels a few times. Right?

Turns out no. You would think a pipeline as dangerous as the Keystone XL Pipeline would raise some eye brows. Now not only will Texas have a nuclear waste dump it will be a dumping ground for this tar sands pipeline. There are a lot of good people who are standing up for the gulf (who have been abused enough by big oil).

Not only do they want to run a path of destruction from Canada to Texas. They want to rape North America's environment and natural resources to pump up our gas prices "to European levels "


Even if you forget about the environment, the protesters, and your morals how could the news ignore that the government is giving away private property to the oil companies!  How is such a blatant abuse of American people being ignored?

Please take the time to tell these "news" channels to do their damn job and cover important issues. Fuck the kardashian wedding. How do these people sleep at night? Here is a link to a list of contact that will make it super easy.

For fuck sake "this was the largest act of civil disobedience in the history of the climate movement. More than 200 people have already been arrested; the number will keep growing"  It should not be ignored!

Liberal VS. Conservative Women

Ok for this comparison lets just go ahead and get the stupid shit out of the way.


This is not what I was thinking about when I started researching for this blog post. Turns out when you google liberal VS Conservative women all you get is a bunch of bullshit from the right talking about how republican women are more attractive. Let me tell you some of the reason why this is dumb.
1. Being hot really is not an accomplishment.
2. If the right brags about being hot and not one post about their women being smart then a picture can probably replace them. I would go for a motivational poster or maybe a cute puppy.
3. They are not hot unless you go for the lost vacant stare or crazy eyes. I know that who you find attractive is an opinion, but you probably have serious problems if you think a woman being stupid is an attractive trait. More of those "family values" the right keeps talking about.
4.  Bangablity DOES NOT = respect.
5. A reasonable person would much rather listen to and vote for a smart person then an attractive person. This might be why women only make up 10% of the house and senate GOP.
6. Liberal women are way hotter. Not just because stupidity and lack of personality makes me dry.
Here is a reference.

And TX's own Wendy Davis

Let's start out with Liberal VS Conservative personalities in general. 

Conservatives buy more porn. I understand, if it was between having sex with myself or a conservative woman myself would win. 

I have to say just searching for this stuff is very interesting. If you google Liberal woman you get research papers and news. You google republican women you get stuff about being the life of the party, clubs, and "red hot" republican women.

Liberal Bullies

If another liberal or democrat doesn't agree with you, don't call them a teabagger or republican. It's a childish game and you're only making yourself look bad. People who say "think for yourself", and then tell you agree with me or you're the enemy, are hypocrites. I get we need solidarity, but you can not think for yourself and blindly support a group or person (especially a politician). I don't see how name calling in the name of solidarity works but whatever.

Plus if someone tells you that you are not liberal enough tell them to go fuck themselves, or better yet tell them whatever you want because you're an adult who can think for themselves. They are bullies trying to use peer pressure to get you to act the way they want you to or to make themselves feel better about the way they act. Either way they are the one with the problem not you.

I'm not just poo pooing on the left. I'm guessing it happens to people on the right to, but I don't have to put up with it there.

I'm aware the picture is not perfect. If you don't like it please write down your complaint on a piece and shove it up your ass.

Momma's Tips On Water Conservation

I have always been a big fan of saving water. Now that we are under water restrictions shit just got real. We have a lot of animals and plants to keep alive around here and I don't have no damn money so a fine is out of the question.

First I will go over some classics 

1. Don't run your dishwasher or clothes washer unless they are full.

2. Don't leave the water running while you brush your teeth.

3. Soap your hands first then rinse. 

4. I would say when you wash your cars use a bucket, but we can't wash cars any more

5. Water at night

6. Bath young children together or with you. (I make sure mine go pee before getting in the tub)

7. Take your shower or bath with a friend. My husband and I like to bond this way. Added bonus my back is spotless. 

8. Wash your pets in the area of your lawn that needs to be watered. We have also stopped washing pets. My dog smells terrible.

9. Compost veggies instead of using the garbage disposal. Ours go to our pig or chickens. 


 Time to kick it up a notch. Here is some of the stuff I have started doing since shit got real. It is not as convenient, but it's still pretty easy. It just takes more planning.
I love buckets. I keep a little one in the sink to catch the sink water from stuff I rinse off. Actually it is not a bucket it is a old trick or treat pail that looks like a green jack o lantern. Any ways when it gets full I pour it into a bucket on my porch. At night I empty the porch buckets on the plants. 

I take buckets in the shower with me. Not as inconvenient as I thought it was going to be. Also after the kids take a bath I bucket out that water. Then I put them on the porch till night time and then dump them on whatever needs its. 

Be careful when doing this. A little bit of most soaps wont hurt plants, but I don't think it would be good for plants to get nair on them or something. 

One of the most surprising places I have found extra water has been from the air conditioner. There is a little tube on the side of my house that drips out the water from the condensation in the air conditioner. I had no idea how much water this things was dumping out. It fills up a bucket every few hours. Well actually it is a Easter pail but whatever. The water is very clean. I'm not saying you can drink it. No telling what is in those pipes and on your air conditioner.

It has got to rain soon it is just getting sad around here. Deer are coming into the yard to drink out of the dog's water. I don't mind the deer I'm just worried next it will be the wild hogs and coyotes.

P.S. I have heard a lot of great things about water barrels. I myself have never had one even though I really want one. We can't find anyplace to put it.

What The Hell (The Debt Ceiling Edition)?

I know a lot of you are tired of hearing about the debt ceiling and the whole freak show circus. You should be good god what a bunch of bullshit.

Still no matter how annoying the whole thing is, it is really important. I have heard a lot of people saying we shouldn't poo poo on our president because he is on our team. I say fuck that he doesn't get a free pass. I'm not in some kind of denial were I'm not going to acknowledge that democrats just got their ass handed to them. Don't get me wrong this is not his fault. The terrorist in congress did this, but it seems like having a democrat as president and democrats as the majority in the senate would be enough to keep the republicans from molesting us. At least enough to pull them off a little.

A little about our wins

When did people's expectations become so low? They didn't cut from social security. Why the fuck would they? Social security isn't causing the deficit. Why the hell was that ever an option? Poor medicare like it didn't have enough issues.

Another one of our so called wins is the debt ceiling was raised. Woopty fucking doo! Since 1962 it has been raised 74 times. Not that I'm trying to down play how awesome it is that our country can go another few months with out slipping into anarchy, but seriously? Hopefully (because we don't know anything for sure yet) we have avoided yet another catastrophe. The government who is suppose to be working for us and the best they can do is agree to borrow more money to pay it's bills. Yes, I know dealing with the crazy people saying they want to see this country default is difficult. I just can't be happy that this is our accomplishment. The teabaggers have turned what should have been a mundane task into the fucking government Olympics. 

For some reason people are considering the Bush tax cuts not being in the deal a win for us, but they are still happening so no. People are saying they are going to expire which is great, but I think I heard that before. I'm not going to jump the gun on that. Again that is the republicans fault, but at the end of the day we still all get fucked no matter whose fault it is.

Yes, this deal does not mean the death of us all. We get to keep social security and some other "entitlement" programs pretty much unharmed (so far they could fuck them up later). I just can't ignore the fact that after that whole big dog and pony show no closing loopholes, no tax increases. It makes me want to vomit. I don't even mind most of the budget cuts but all the sacrifice is coming from the working class. Not Democrats or Republicans, everyone who takes their kids to public schools or works a normal job and has plans on growing old in this country. 

Also what the fuck is up with this super congress or super commission bull plop? They pull this idea straight out of their asses and we are just suppose to be ok with it? We will give this thing that they just made up and give it all kinds of powers that affect our lives? Does anyone else feel violated? 

face it people we lost this one. I'm not saying we should over react and freak out. Not that a bunch of protest aren't in order right now. There should be more this shit is crazy, but don't make it more sensational then it is. It is not the end of the world, it sucks and it sure as hell is not a win for the American people so don't polish this turd like its some daisy plucked from Obama's master plan either.

What is really sad is we don't really know how bad it is. This is still a work in progress and some very important details are not a for sure thing yet.
