1.)  Texas Governor Rick Perry wouldn't know the democratic process if it bit him in the behind - which it sort of did this week.  What do we have to do in this country to get out elected representatives to realize that it is their job to represent the wishes of their electorate?? It's not their job to vote based on their personal beliefs.

The majority of Texans do not want restrictions to the current law and access for abortions.  It is a small majority - only 52% based on a May poll.  However, when asked if the person trusted or didn't trust Perry and the legislature to "make decisions" about women's health care; 57% said not.  

My question is:  Why do we keep electing these politicians who clearly do not represent the majority view in this country?  Why do we continue to allow them to vote with the money and/or their personal views?

2.)  I want a I Stand with Texas Women tee-shirt!  What a riveting display of solidarity that was!  Apparently Planned Parenthood made the shirts- hope they sell them as a fundraiser...

3.)  Thought I had published this on Friday - oh, well.  

4.)  My kids have been having a fun summer so far.  Ally just returned from the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.  It is all electronic music and it runs for 3 days from 7pm to 5am each night! 
She was sleep deprived but had a good time.  I was glad she went with a bunch of guys who were watching out for her.

5.)  Zac travelled to Philadelphia to spend a week with his "womb mate" Maggie.  They spent a couple of days touring  New York City and made a pilgrimage to the Dogfish Head Brewery in Delaware.  Zac got to swim in the Atlantic Ocean.

They actually went to museums in addition to bars!

It's been a crazy summer politically--you and I are watching and reading all the same things.

It's so impressive when your kids like museums as adults--a little freaky and a lot wonderful!

Oh, Texas... *sigh*

"Womb-mate" makes me smile. :)
