Supreme Court Issues Anti-Women and Anti-Union Rulings

Haven’t posted things like this in a long time. I use be more active in these matters, don’t really know what happened there. But I saw this and had to put my two cents into it. These needs to be stopped! The world is changing, people are changing. Personally I believe there is no more room for hate! Plus what ever happened to separation of church and state? It seems to me that they are basing these laws on their own personal beliefs or whatever relationship they have with an organized religion.

Supreme Court decisions attacking unions and allowing corporations to undermine women’s healthcare choices are absolutely terrible, but we can take immediate action to stop right-wing judges. Two right-wingers are slowly making their way through the judicial nomination and confirmation process even though Democrats control both the White House and the Senate.

 

 

The first person we have to stop is Michael Boggs. President Obama cut a deal with Georgia’s two Republican senators to nominate Boggs—a right-wing activist judge who is anti-choice, anti-civil rights and anti-marriage equality—in exchange for those two senators dropping their opposition to other nominees. This is unacceptable. Not only should a Democratic president never, ever be nominating someone like Boggs to serve on the federal bench, but after we won filibuster reform last November Democrats no longer have to make these kinds of deals in order to get anyone confirmed.

The second person we have to stop is Ward Armstrong, who voted to end the Affordable Care Act, supported allowing handguns in bars, voted to close Virginia’s abortion clinics and supported a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. Virginia’s two Democratic U.S. senators have recommended that President Obama nominate Armstrong for a lifetime appointment to the federal bench. No, no, no, no, no:

We can’t reverse these bad decisions overnight, but we can stand up today and tell the Democratic Party not to make things even worse. Today we say NO MORE.

Geek Fallout EP #79: TOP 5 DUOS

Geek Fallout.

Finally we have Episode 79 edited and ready for your listening pleasure! Brian Farrell hosts this week with Chris Lockhart and MissM joining him to discuss our ‘Top 5 Duos’.

Turkey Chili

1 Tbl. Olive Oil
1 Lb. Ground Turkey
1/2 Large Onion, Diced
2 Tbl. Chili powder
1 teas. Ground Cumin
1 teas. Dried Oregano leaves
1/2 teas. Ground Black Pepper
1/4 teas. Garlic Powder
1 3/4 Cup Chicken Broth
1 Cup Salsa
1 Tbl. Sugar
1 Cup Whole Tomatoes
1 Can Spicy Chili Beans, rinsed/drained
1 Can Mixed beans, rinsed/drained
1/2 Can Black Beans, rinsed/drained
1 Can Corn, rinsed/drained
6-12oz Tomato Paste

Heat the oil in saucepot. Add Turkey, onions, chili powder, cumin, oregano, black pepper, and garlic powder. Cook until the turkey is well browned. Stirring often.
Take half of the beans and mash them together.
Stir the broth, salsa, sugar, beans, including the mashed beans, and corn in the saucepot and heat to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 30 minutes or until mixture is hot and bubbling.
Serve with shredded cheese and grill cheese sandwiches!

Lately we have been doing this in the crockpot and found that the flavor is better. We cook the meat, onion and spice mixture in a skillet. Pour all of the other ingredients into the crock pot while that is cooking. Then we add the meat mixture to the crockpot. We turn it on at about 11am and let it cook until we get home from work which is around 6:30pm or so. We have also prepped it the night before and put it in the fridge and then turned it on the next day so that there was no prep to do in the morning.

You can use whatever beans you like and add as much spice as you like.

Hope you enjoy!

My family loves these and they are easy to make and get in the over before I have to leave for work. I usually double the recipe and use a 9X13 pan so I have enough for my family at home and to give away. Let me know how you like them.
