About Me

Just a poor liberal lesbian living in the deep south. Don't expect me to be nice just because I am a liberal. I am kind of bitchy with an attitude problem.

Meme on facebook.



This happened just the next county over where I live in North Florida.

Storm of paranoia and hate erupts in Florida town after photo shows Muslims praying at beach

A photo taken by a Florida county commissioner of a group of men observing their Muslim faith has ignited a racist backlash that spilled over into a recent government meeting, WTXL reports.

The photo was taken at Mashes Sands Beach in Wakulla County by county commission chairman Ralph Thomas and posted to his Facebook page with the caption, “Walked up on this at Mashes Sands this evening! First time seeing this in Wakulla County.” The photo has sparked an emotional storm that has included death threats.

“I’m raising the question of whether or not a group of military aged Muslim men… are praying on our beach, well label me whatever you want,” said Wakulla County Sheriff candidate Will Dance, according to WTXL. “The reason I brought this up is because my daughters use that beach, my wife uses that beach and gentlemen, under Sharia Law, the cutoff shorts and tee-shirts… that my family wears on that beach are considered offensive under Sharia and any Muslim man may carry out what he feels is fit punishment. And I’m sorry but that type of behavior cannot happen here.”

Muslim leader Imam Amro was interviewed by WTXL and assured people that in general, no Muslim would retaliate against anyone not wearing modest clothes because it’s none of their business.

Got reported for this meme on Facebook.


For violating community standards. I guess I offended some ammosexual.

The results?

Irving police chief admits: Cops knew Ahmed Mohamed didn’t have a bomb when they arrested him

Source: Raw Story

Irving Police Chief Larry Boyd refused to say on Thursday that his officers erred in arresting 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed on Monday even though they allegedly knew he did not bring a bomb to his high school.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes gave Boyd the opportunity to admit to a mistake, while conceding that people understood that officers need to be on high alert regarding possible attacks against a school.

However, Hayes said, “I think it’s hard for folks watching this from the outside, seeing this all link up, seeing this kid — who seems like a tremendously poised, bright, genuine kid — be put through this. To not hear from anyone in officialdom down there that ‘Yeah, we didn’t get this one right.'”

“The officers made the decision they did with the information they had with what they thought was right at the time,” Boyd responded. “We are clearly going to review this. We want to always look at ways we can enhance and have a better outcome. There’s a lot of decision points, there’s a lot of alternatives that they have available to them.”

Hats off to this thread here for calling it out before it was known: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027180415

Mmm, homemade peanut butter cookies.

Notice I use only brown sugar, not white sugar. Makes for a richer cookie.



1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda


Cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars together in a bowl; beat in eggs.
In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir into butter mixture. Put dough in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown.

Made semi homemade biscuits today.

OMG, they were good. I didn't have any buttermilk, so I got some sour cream and added it to the milk. About 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup milk. Then I added about 3 cups bisquick. Mixed it up, poured the batter onto my new kitchen island that was coverd with more bisquick. Folded about 10 times. Patted it out, cut them and put them on an ungreased baking sheet. Put them into a 450 degree preheated oven for about 10 minutes. Took them out, brushed with melted butter. Put them back in for 5 minutes. Took them out and brushed them with melted butter again and put them back in for 2 minutes.


They were so light on the inside and crumbly buttery on the outside. Oh, and I always keep my bisquick in the freezer. Lasts longer and makes incredible biscuits!

I simply just want to pat myself on the back.

I put this together yesterday and today made homemade biscuits and gravy. This came in a few dozen pieces not to mention the few hundred screws and bolts. Whew, I have wanted a kitchen island on wheels for a long time! Now I can make all kinds of goodies!!!

Owner of Tacoma arcade faces backlash after he’s filmed calling Black Lives Matter protesters ‘n**


Here is Dorkey's facebook page. Go and tell them how crappy their racist burgers are.


Turns out "Orange Boy" is a mother.

The feral kitties I am feeding. I thought the orange cat was a boy and the tortoiseshell was the mommy. I was wrong. Orange "Boy" was nursing two beautiful orange kitties. This is one.

Orange girl and one of her babies. I think the other one is poly-dactyl, but I can't get close enough to get a good look.


Unfortunately the cute little black kitty hasn't been seen in a couple of weeks. But, next week is the start of my trapping, neuter release for the whole pack of cats. Wish me luck. http://www.gofundme.com/meowomon
