I have nothing to say
The beginning of the end of DOMA - thanks be to God.
The attempt by the Governor of Wisconsin to shut down unions as Democratic representatives continue to boycott the government and the people of Wisconsin continue to demonstrate in the Capitol.
Unemployment rates continue to rise and the deficit continues to spiral upwards and out of control.
The fact that, even as we speak, federal agencies are making plans for an orderly way to shut down nonessential services if Congress fails to pass a budget on Friday which they have not done, as yet.
Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made a Big Speech to the Nevada State Legislature this week and surprised everyone by demanding that the state have an “adult conversation” about its legal brothels. (No, I am not making this up.)
The rioting in Libya and the almost incoherent ramblings of Muammar al-Gaddafi, which is Really Scary because he does have nuclear warheads in his possession.
The rising price of oil as a direct result of the unrest in Libya and the Middle East, which provides the United States with as much oil as that which is produced in the Gulf of Mexico.
Meanwhile, as we continue to be dependent upon fossil fuel which is decidedly not good for the environment comes the sad news that, because the Federal Government has now mandated "energy saving light bulbs" (CFLs), rendering the old, traditional incandescent light bulb obsolete, the E-Z Bake Ovens, which used to produce little (albeit bad tasting but fun to make) cakes by the heat of an incandescent light bulb, will be "collateral damage" to the War on Environmental Pollution and no longer be made.
The devastating earthquake in Christ Church, New Zealand.
The continued, sustained attack on Reproductive Rights in particular and women in general by the new majority in the House.
JLo's meltdown when Chris Medina was eliminated from the "Top 24" on "American Idol".
And, as if that wasn't enough, the news that Christine ("I Am Not A Witch") O'Donnell is being considered as a contestant on "Dancing With The Stars."
It's all too much for one mind to process.
I really have nothing to say.
