You Are 78% Feminist

You are certainly a feminist - whether you know it or not.

You believe in gender equality, at least most of the time. You also believe there are a few exceptions.

Gas Prices [May. 10th, 2006|10:55 am]

Michigan Citizens Encouraged to Sign Petition; President Called on to Support Cap on Oil Profits

With prices hitting $3.00 a gallon at stations across Michigan, we are once again being exploited at the pump. That’s why I’ve called on the president to support a cap on the exorbitant, windfall profits that oil companies are making during this crisis – a step that would lower the costs for consumers. The steps his administration is taking to address the gas crisis just don’t go far enough to lower prices.

In addition to ExxonMobil’s $36 billion in profits in 2005, they have just reported profits of $8.4 billion for the first three months of this year – the equivalent of $1,100 every second!

We’ve started an online petition drive to urge President Bush to support a cap on windfall profits for the oil companies. Already, nearly 250,000 citizens have lent their names to that petition. I encourage you to do the same, at www.michigan.gov/lowergasprices.

In addition to demanding action from the White House, we’re also taking steps in state government to protect consumers. I’ve directed the Department of Agriculture to 1) hire additional gas pump inspectors to make sure that motorists aren’t being taken advantage of at gas stations; and 2) directed the department to conduct routine surveys of gasoline prices and to refer any information about potential unfair pricing to prosecutors for possible legal action.

Let’s rev up the engine of public opinion and send a strong message to the leadership in Washington that we want action – and we want it now. As citizens who are literally paying the price for this inaction, I encourage you to make your voices heard.


The Governor’s weekly radio address is released each Friday at 10:00 a.m. and may be heard on broadcast stations across the state through an affiliation with the Michigan Association of Broadcasters. The address will also be available on the Governor’s Website on Mondays as a podcast for general distribution to personal MP3 players and home computers.

Making the little things wonderful is important to you, and you probably have an inviting home.
You seek harmony with others, but occasionally you have a very stubborn streak.

"The Dash" [Sep. 13th, 2005|11:56 am]
How do you live your dash?

I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of his friend.

He referred to the dates on his tombstone from the beginning.. to the end.

He noted that first came his date of birth and spoke the following date with tears.

But he said what mattered most of all

Was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time that he spent alive on earth..

And now only those who loved him know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not how much we own; the cars...the house...the cash.

What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard...are there things you'd like to change:

For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough and always try to understand the way other people feel.

Be less quick to anger, and show appreciation more

And love the people in our lives

Like we've never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect, and more often wear a smile...

Remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.

So, when your eulogy's being read

With your life's actions to rehash...

Would you be proud of the things they say

about how you spent your dash?

Buried my Uncle yesterday .. very difficult. Lots of tears from everyone. He will be sadly missed. You always knew you would be laughing if he was in your presence. Have to work tonight (blah). Don't want to go :(
This month is just a really shitty month ... hopefully I will find sunshine soon but not betting on it. Later
