350 or bust: Hopes For a New Year

We all have dreams and hopes for a better future. It is good to remember that there is more that connects us than divides us. Let’s hope that 2013 is a time that we the people remind our elected representatives of this fact.

Dead Wild Roses: You made it. Happy New Year.

It doesn’t matter who you are. You gave your best, your worst and everything in between. Congratulate yourself for making it to here, prevailing or failing with your challenges. It doesn’t matter who you are. You are a worthy person and deserve to celebrate this one time, this one milestone of a thousand milestones.

Celebrate with me. For jocundity, for exultation, for the sheer epic magnitude of emotion expressed in the music of Beethoven. Prepare happily for Cry, Rinse and Repeat. Feel what unbounded joy is like through his music. Know

Dead Wild Roses: Force Birth Advocacy – Anti-Woman all the Time

Hey folks, by now I think you are aware of my positions on pretty much every contentious issue that comes down the pipe. We here at DWR regularly lay waste to the shitty anti-choice arguments that cross our path. We take the time to deconstruct the bullcookery and show people how wrong our opponents are for the edification for all that bother to visit this little corner of the blogosphere.

Fellow Conservative and immigrant-bashing minister of Citizenship and Immigration, Jason Kenney, endorsed the idea.
