    On Sunday I finally reialzed that I was putting limitations on myself. Me. Only me. Nobody else. Because my family thinks I'm awesome and of course I'm going to be stellar and a wild success because duh, that's just the way it works (I trained them myself. I should sell a brainwashing course)Since then, I've been getting slapped in the face with that theme over and over and over. (I have a record of not getting these things the first time.)So I've been journalling big lists of what I could do if I was limitless. Epic shit. Go big or go home. So far: I could have a clean house without spending a bunch of time at it or paying a cleaning service. You laugh, but in half an hour a day in three days my house is sparkling and my family is eating healthy meals, and leftovers are not spoiling in the fridge. I think we can agree that that is EPIC. Next up: Building an epic website BECAUSE I CAN.

    Mr. Kurtz must be aware that, for a number of weeks, liberal bloggers on "The Daily Beast" site
    have traduced Marcus Bachmann by inferring he is gay. Stephanie Miller obviously played on
    that sentiment when she said: "Although Marcus Bachmann looked like he was singing the
    opening number to "La Cage Aux Folles..." Howard Kurtz has a reputation for fairness and
    honesty. Allowing his program to be used for such a low purpose can only hurt that reputation.

      is that an individual is enteltid to his own religion and shouldn't be judged by extremists. However, anyone who would design society to fit their religious beliefs either at the point of a gun or with specious morality claims can count himself no better than any other tin pot fascist.We all need justification for our behavior. Insanity seems to find in fundamentalism a broad and easy channel in which to flow. It is an interesting coincidence that God's desires always seem to jibe with those of his true believers.Thank you for your feedback.
