Candince Gingrich to Brother Newt

Another "compromised" famil relationship?

Dear Newt,

I recently had the displeasure of watching you bash the protestors of the Prop 8 marriage ban to Bill O'Reilly on FOX News. I must say, after years of watching you build your career by stirring up the fears and prejudices of the far right, I feel compelled to use the words of your idol, Ronald Reagan, "There you go, again."

However, I realize that you may have been a little preoccupied lately with planning your resurrection as the savior of your party, so I thought I would fill you in on a few important developments you might have overlooked.

The truth is that you're living in a world that no longer exists. I, along with millions of Americans, clearly see the world the way it as -- and we embrace what it can be. You, on the other hand, seem incapable of looking for new ideas or moving beyond what worked in the past.

Welcome to the 21st century, big bro. I can understand why you're so afraid of the energy that has been unleashed after gay and lesbian couples had their rights stripped away from them by a hateful campaign. I can see why you're sounding the alarm against the activists who use all the latest tech tools to build these rallies from the ground up in cities across the country.

This unstoppable progress has at its core a group we at HRC call Generation Equality. They are the most supportive of full LGBT equality than any American generation ever -- and when it comes to the politics of division, well, they don't roll that way. 18-24 year olds voted overwhelmingly against Prop 8 and overwhelmingly for Barack Obama. And the numbers of young progressive voters will only continue to grow. According to the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning, about 23 million 18-29 year olds voted on Nov. 4, 2008 -- the most young voters ever to cast a ballot in a presidential election. That's an increase of 3 million more voters compared to 2004.

These are the same people who helped elect Barack Obama and sent a decisive message to your party. These young people are the future and their energy will continue to drive our country forward. Even older Americans are turning their backs on the politics of fear and demagoguery that you and your cronies have perfected over the years.

This is a movement of the people that you most fear. It's a movement of progress -- and your words on FOX News only show how truly desperate you are to maintain control of a world that is changing before your very eyes.

Then again, we've seen these tactics before. We know how much the right likes to play political and cultural hardball, and then turn around and accuse us of lashing out first. You give a pass to a religious group -- one that looks down upon minorities and women -- when they use their money and membership roles to roll back the rights of others, and then you label us "fascists" when we fight back. You belittle the relationships of gay and lesbian couples, and yet somehow neglect to explain who anointed you the protector of "traditional" marriage. And, of course, you've also mastered taking the foolish actions of a few people and then indicting an entire population based on those mistakes. I fail to see how any of these patterns coincide with the values of "historic Christianity" you claim to champion.

Again, nothing new here. This is just more of the blatant hypocrisy we're used to hearing.

What really worries me is that you are always willing to use LGBT Americans as political weapons to further your ambitions. That's really so '90s, Newt. In this day and age, it's embarrassing to watch you talk like that. You should be more afraid of the new political climate in America, because, there is no place for you in it.

In other words, stop being a hater, big bro.

How I Spent the Morning All 4 Naught?

Now that I am all powered up again, I have just got to tell you what has just now happened to me while working hard away at this ole 'puter of mine. I spent the last couple of hours working at updating my on-line "EZWayBay" Tack & More Store, adding new stuff and also figuring that I would jump on the exploitation & commercicalization of christmas bandwagon this year and re-dress the window of the store to decorate it in the seasons traditional colors of greens, reds and blues. I was working on the text, carefully and meticously outlining and highlighting each individual letter, changing the colors from black to alternating greens & reds, i.e; one green letter, then one red, then green, then red again, and so on. After about a half an hour to forty-five minutes of working away at this tedious task, when I was nearly to the end of the page and almost completed, ..all of a sudden the power went out and everything shut down. It was back on in an instant, but I am not sure because I havent even checked yet, Im afraid I may have lost all my changes. What a distressing thought of having wasted all that precious time! I am hoping against hope that my ole 'puter may have caught them on automatic save, for I dont know if I feel like going all through that again. I am afraid to look but will go there now and see whats what and get back to you with the story and a link to the store, in case you all may wanna buy somethin from me and help out with all my good causes! Do you hear that famb-o-lee? Wish me luck!

Update: Here I am back again with a good report. All I can say is thank the techno-gods for auto-save! Click on title above to go to my newly decorated store and just SHOP BABY SHOP, SHOP HERE SHOP NOW! Its the Bush-way patriotic thing to do!

Ted Williams Dosent Get His Wish: Terms of Will Thwarted

Help Us Free Ted Williams From His Frozen Fate Tuesday, 4:54 AM

On July 5th 2002 at the age of 83, Ted Williams was pronounced dead as a result of heart failure. His body was secretly taken by private jet to Alcor in Scottsdale, Arizona where his head was decapitated from his body and than placed (both head and body) into liquid nitrogen. Ted Williams' eldest daughter, Bobby-Jo Williams Ferrell fought against the process, saying that her dad had requested in his 1996 Will to be cremated and his ashes scattered off the Florida coast.

Currently, the greatest baseball player who ever lived, as well as a true American war hero, is being held captive and frozen in two separate metal devices at a cryonics laboratory in Scottsdale, Arizona. As you will learn, this disposition was not in his formal Last Will and Testament of December 1996, nor did he ever contract for such treatment. In short, Ted Williams' LAST WISH has been desecrated.

Please go to my petition to learn more and to support this cause.
