Putting the Pieces Together for LGBT Rights

Progress may then look a bit like a three ring circus or a juggler who is handling three balls in one hand, three knifes in the other, while attempting to balance some spinning plates, all at the same time.

Please all join together and sing a round of Happy Birthday, as my blog celebrates a second birthday! I probably would have totally missed it, except that I’m away on vacation, like I was two years ago when the blog really took off, and a lack of internet here at sea, brought it into stark focus.

The Beginning of the End of Democracy

I suppose nothing from an industry perspective. The Oil and Gas industry has invested $334,500 to make back ONE TRILLION DOLLARS tax free. That’s a pretty good Return on Investment, isn’t it?
