And So This Is Christmas...

It’s Christmas morning and very quiet here on Cape Cod. My husband is away until Wednesday chasing celeb pix. I suppose this is the life we’ve chosen for the next few years, but it sure would be nice having him home.

Haven’t caught the news yet but I’m sure there’s been more trouble in Iraq, a baby Jesus has been ripped off from a nativity scene and a Santa must have been picked up for soliciting a minor on the Internet. We’ll see…

Merry Christmas to all!

I'm too old to stay up late...

...but I wish that I had Saturday night. I hear that on Saturday Night Live they did an animated sketch of "Flush" Limbaugh puking on the bathroom floor after popping multiple OxyContins! You can see a screen cap below. Oh how I wish I had seen that! Now granted, they never poked fun at Belushi or any of the other dope-soaked characters that they have had on their show, but they didn't have the nerve to rail aboutwhat scum drug abusers are while all along they were sending their maids to Denny's for their daily fix. Boy did that turd have this one coming. If anyone has a tape of that let me know and I will post it on the blog.

The World Has Gone Mad

We have incompetent CIA Directors, incompetent Army Generals, and incompetent Administrative Ambassadors getting the Presidential Medal of Freedom for completely fucking up the "War" on Terror, now this:

Man of the Year indeed!

You have to wonder what theyd have gotten if they had been successful at their endeavors... Hawaii?

***Hypocrisy Alert***

Now Frenchy's House Party's 1st Hypocrisy Alert. I'll scan the media for Hypocrisy and report it here. I suppose I'll have to name the alert after a big hypocrite. Any suggestions?

Here's our first report:

Pope: Gay Marriage 'Destroys The Fabric Of Society'
by Newscenter Staff

(Vatican City) Pope John Paul launched a new assault on same-sex marriage on Saturday accusing gays of an "aggressive attempt to legally undermine the family."

In his strongest words on the subject yet the 84-year old pontiff's pre-Christmas message called on Catholics around the world to step up their opposition to gay marriage.

"Attacks on marriage and the family, from an ideological and legal aspect, are becoming stronger and more radical every day," his statement said.

"Who destroys this fundamental fabric causes a profound injury to society and provokes often irreparable damage."

The Pope also attacked couples who live together, abortion and artificial insemination. -My emphasis- (More here)

I would say we have more to worry about from pedophile priests and clergy who are victimizing our youth than from gays and lesbians who just want equal rights and the right to live our lives in peace. Just a thought.

Birthday Wishes for Tobin

As I mentioned yesterday was Tobin's 50th birthday. Many Many more, Doll! We sent or Frenchy's Spy Cam to Hedge House to see what Tobin might wish for on his big day. Here's the highly secret hidden video:

Energy Firms Lavish Funds on Inauguration
By PETE YOST, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - More than $4.5 million from the corporate world has flowed to President Bush's inauguration fund, much of it from the energy industry and some of its executives in contributions of $250,000 each.

Outside the energy sector, New Orleans Saints football team owner Tom Benson gave $50,000 and his companies gave $200,000, the fund reported Friday. Northrop Grumman Corp., the world's largest shipbuilder and second-largest U.S. defense contractor, donated $100,000.

Michael Dell, chairman of Dell Inc., the world's largest personal computer maker, gave $250,000. So did United Technologies, maker products ranging from escalators to aircraft engines.

Investment banking firm Stephens Group Inc. of Little Rock, Ark., gave $250,000. And the education loan firm Sallie Mae gave $250,000.

Occidental Petroleum Corp., whose business stands to benefit from the president's actions concerning Libya, donated $250,000, as did Exxon Mobil, the world's largest publicly traded oil company. Exxon Mobil reported record third-quarter profits, thanks to higher prices for oil and natural gas.

In April, Bush took steps to restore normal trade and investment ties with Libya, enabling four American oil companies, including Occidental, to resume commercial activities there after an 18-year absence. Bush's action was a reward to Moammar Gadhafi for eliminating his most destructive weapons programs.
Other donors from the energy sector included Texas oilman T. Boone Pickens, who gave $250,000; and former Enron President Richard Kinder, who left the firm five years before it collapsed and now is CEO of one of the largest energy transportation and storage companies in the country. Kinder also gave $250,000. Energy provider Southern Co., which owns utility companies in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi, gave $250,000. The Nuclear Energy Institute, the policy organization of the nuclear industry, gave $100,000. (my emphasis)

The "Old Boy" network is alive and kickin'!

Good Morning!

Well it's one week before Christmas and I can't seem to find myself too excited this year. My husband is away in the "frozen North" (Canada) stalking some "celebrity-type" person with a reporter. Lord knows what they are up to.

It is Tobin's birthday today as well. His husband Bob is throwing a drinks party this evening to celebrate it. He's 50 today! I swear we all look (at least to me) like we haven't aged a bit, except for a little gray hair here and there.Not much of note today so far. I have been scanning the news services that I keep an eye on and there is little new. The President and his flunkies are still screwing things up... The media is still reporting the bromides of "the economy is charging forward" and "the war in Iraq is a model of war planning", even as insurgents level election offices in Kurdish controlled Northern Iraq. Elections by the end of January? Believe that and I'll be happy to sell you an election.Something interesting in Massachusetts today...From The Boston Globe:
Some of the largest employers in Massachusetts have decided not to extend health benefits to spouses of gay and lesbian employees, saying their federally regulated health plans are not bound by the Massachusetts court ruling permitting gay marriage.
(see story here)
It seems FedEx, NStar, Adecco, and General Dynamics have decided not to offer same-sex married couples the benefits they offer their heterosexual couples. It's a disgrace and a slap in the face to all of us who have been married in Massachusetts and those who have worked diligently for those companies over the years. They feel that because the Federal Government doesn't recognize the validity of their marriages, then they should not have to give benefits. I feel that a little NYC-style Massachusetts government intervention is required. Why not have all companies in Massachusetts that do any business with Massachusetts be required to provide benefits, like the NY City Council has just ordered? Now you might feel that "Twit" Romney may not sign such legislation if it came to his desk, but if I recall Bloomberg vetoed the Council's proposal and the Council overrode his veto. There's enough opposition to Romney in the Massachusetts legislature to override him, isn't there? I would hope so.
