What an amazing few hours!!!!!!!!!!!

1.  The Supreme Court sort of makes up for its blunder yesterday by voting that DOMA is unconstitutional.  Beautiful.   (Though..in reference to yesterday’s ruling attacking the Voting Rights Act, one might wonder if the Court is slightly schizophrenic.  However, to be honest, my little mind is not well-versed, or even versed at all, in the law.  And perhaps they had something more in mind than the shock of how it sounded yesterday.  Perhaps.   I’ll have to explore it further.)

FOR NOW…no more DOMA!!

And to be truthful…I don’t have a dog in this fight (what an abhorrent expression)…but as long as I can remember, I’ve sided with the underdog.  The one getting picked on.  The one we should all stand up for.  And discriminating against a whole bunch of people just cause they don’t hang out with the kind of people we think they should hang out with seems to me to be…well…just plain wrong.  Sort of intolerant.  Judgemental.  Unkind.   I digress.

Anyway:

2.  A new hero in Texas!!  The Honorable Wendy Davis talked for 12 1/2 hours yesterday…til almost midnight Texas time…to filibuster a bill that would drastically affect womens’ reproductive rights in the great ol’ state of Texas.

And after much chaos…and shenanigans by the Republicans  (because, yes she is a Democrat)..the bill was defeated!!!!!!!

GIRL POWER all the way!

3.  Supreme Court just came back with a decision on California’s Prop 8.  Not totally sure about what it all means, but I think it’s good news for supporters of marriage equality.  (Will have to read up on it.)

And..in news closer to home:

Beautiful day.   Lots of sun.  Breeze.  No recent bear damage.  Yes, the bear’s been back.  Ate the windows.

Really.

Ate the windows.

And the pretty pink petunias.  Now that made me mad.

Will post pics of the window.

And of our recent trip to Jackson…and our escapades there.

Stay tuned.

(Been busy trying to soak up the ultra SHORT summer here…we get just a few days of warm weather…so much to do..)

Mother, Mad Ranchwife(as in--at times-- crazy, nutso, loco, off-my-rocker insane), Veterinarian, Physical Therapist, "Liberal, pinko, gay-loving, Subaru-driving Socialist" (as I've been called), proud to be a totally tree-huggin', climate change believin', granola girl environmentalist, ObamaGirl, Pro-Choice (don't even get me started here...), and in my younger days a feminist vegetarian as a result of time spent at CU Boulder (this lasted approximately 14 months, until all the Jimmy Buffett I was listening to caused me to crave a cheeseburger). Now I just get pleasure out of swimming against the stream and ruffling a few feathers here in the wild west state of Wyoming!
