CHIHUAHUAS FOR CHANGE

Magic Margot Shoebox is a collection point for all that I hold dear - and that's a lot. My recent inspiration is Don Floyd's new blog thecaptainandthomasine.

The original title of my blog "Chihuahuas for Change" popped into my head two years ago when I was looking for a place to "store" all the information I accumulated on Sarah Palin. I've since dumped that information as others have done a far better job researching and accumulating.


Life is about change and since I have darling Libby the chihuahua the title seems to still be fresh.

KINDNESS

One can pay back the loan of gold, but one dies forever in debt to those who are kind.

"Nullius in verba" Take no one's word for it.
Do your own research.

Success if going from one failure to the next with enthusiasm. Winston Churchill

SHOEBOX


I told you this is a shoebox and we all know that we simply put stuff into a shoebox in no particular order. That's how things are going to appear here. When something whaps me over the head you will be the first to know.

Right now, I want to tell you about my favorite blog in the whole wide world - Margaret and Helen. Hope you go read their post called "I can see November" - while there note their statistics. A grandson set this site up and it's been around the world several times. Margaret and Helen have been friends for over sixty years and counting.

Don Floyd and I have been friends for more than thirty years and counting. We first became pen pals in the late 70's. We are cousins and share a passion for genealogy. My major project this year was helping Don get his book "The Captain and Thomasine" published. Will give you more details in later post.

Ode to Mitt Romney

Generations to come will find a good summary here of why Mitt Romney lost:


On this day of celebration when Barack Obama takes the oath of office, I offer to Mitt Romney, who must be having a very bad day – a little salt in the wound. 

You pursued a cutthroat game plan,
In your brutal Primary fight.
Wherever your opponent stood,
You scurried to his right.
You thought you’d shake the Etch- a-Sketch,
And start again anew.
And that’s why we’re not inaugurating you.
When a soldier in Afghanistan,
Asked if you had your say,
Would you reinstate Don’t Ask Don’t Tell?
And told you he was gay.
You stood there without speaking,
When the crowd began to boo.
And that’s why we’re not inaugurating you.
You didn’t speak when Sandra Fluke,
Was called a “slut” by Rush.
You were silent when your party,
Tried to take our votes from us.
You said nothing when Todd Akin,
Claimed that not all rapes are true.
And that’s why we’re not inaugurating you.
When asked if you would sign,
A woman’s Right to Choose away,
You’d answer women only cared,
How much was in their pay.
You made Ann your link to women,
When she never had a clue.
And that’s why we’re not inaugurating you.
You embarrassed us in Europe,
Wherever you would go.
Ann’s horse made the Olympics,
But you didn’t even show.
You’d have let Michigan go bankrupt,
From Detroit to Kalamazoo.
And that’s why we’re not inaugurating you.
You thought, like you, that everyone,
Loved nothing more than money.
And shaving off a classmates hair,
Was your idea of funny.
You like your women bound in binders,
Unless they’re pregnant in a shoe.
And that’s why we’re not inaugurating you.
You gave millions to the Mormons,
To Fund Proposition Eight.
You may have called that charity,
Gay couples call it “hate”.
You threatened to kill Big Bird,
And you’re married to a shrew.
And that’s why we’re not inaugurating you.
There are forty-seven percent of us,
For whom you had no care.
You claimed it wasn’t our concern,
If you were taxed your share.
In your heart, you didn’t love us,
And we didn’t love you too.
And that’s why we’re not inaugurating you.
