When a society holds the torch of freedom, everything begins to look like a referendum.

Binders of Women? Personally, I use NTFS.

Dateline: Boston, MA

The FBIs “Operation Big Politics” is reporting that six women from the State of Massachusetts Missing Persons case files have been successfully located in Mitt Romneys binders. Thankfully, all are alive and in good health, though most report extreme boredom.


But, seriously, from the Boston Phoenix:

“What actually happened was that in 2002 – prior to the election, not… even knowing yet whether it would be a Republican or Democratic administration – a bipartisan group of women in Massachusetts formed MassGAP to address the problem of few women in senior leadership positions in state government. There were more than 40 organizations involved with the Massachusetts Womens Political Caucus also bipartisan as the lead sponsor. “They did the research and put together the binder full of women qualified for all the different cabinet positions, agency heads, and authorities and commissions. They presented this binder to Governor Romney when he was elected.”See MoreLike · · Promote · ShareWrite a comment…

Moment Called Now

At a time between a Moment Called Now,
And a time of Then Later Then,
When that last gasp of your metabolism,
Goes trickling out from your helpless rectum,
You are bound to learn this hardest of lessons.

This hardest of lessons, but why?
Forced upon me, such as it was,
By a need for survival, but surprise!
Then Later Then became now a gift.
Then Later Then close to my heart I keep.

When, at the request of a Moment Called Now,
The lesson is drawn into the open and Declares:
Control is but submission to Nature’s every whim!
Control is but submission to Nature’s every whim!
Forced upon me, hard, gift though it was.

It may come to be, Then Later Then,
Then Later Then, you may know,
Born anew into things as they are,
Far, far beyond your control,
You may want me in your heart again.

Do remember please, time does take its time.
When Then Later Then becomes a Moment Called Now,
Even the Greatest of Loves,
The very hungriest of my longings,
Will have little need for a corpse.

Lars, I Love You.!

I’m So Confused.
