Our Time Change Weekend
by Jude Cowell
On Sunday November 4, 2012 at 2:00 am, we'll turn back our clocks and 'reclaim' the hour of sleep we lost in the Spring.
Sounds good but in spite of the elusive "extra" hour we gain, this blogger won't be sleeping much at all if the plutocrat-neocon bunch that Mitt Romney shills for is allowed to reclaim the White House and shaft the American people with four more years of Bush-Cheney wars and policies on steroids!
Have you early voted? Can you help on November 6th? Because America's overly long campaign season has me really quite sleepy!

Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Cancer graciously trine one another and create a blend that has a "mailed fist in a velvet glove" flavor. Deeply perceptive (Water signs are intuitive, imaginative, and emotional), Sun Sco-Moon Can tends toward sincerity, emotional strength, subjectivity, and shrewdness, and can be more than a little secretive.
In their excellent book Sun Sign-Moon Sign, the Harveys give the Scorpio-Cancer combo of energies these illustrative 'Images for Integration':
"A mother eagle defends her babies with immense courage...A surgeon develops life-saving methods...A mother passionately defends her delinquent child and pleads for a compassionate verdict."
Sun Sco-Moon Can is shared natally by body-builder Charles Atlas, heart-transplanter Christian Barnard, journalist Dan Rather, humorist Will Rogers, and President Theodore Roosevelt who advised us that, "There is a handy adage which runs, 'Speak softly and carry a big stick, and you will go far.'
And here's one of my favorite Will Rogers quotes which seems to apply no matter which election year we're in:
"In 1928 the Republican Convention opened with a prayer. If the Lord can see His way clear to bless the Republican Party the way it's been carrying on, then the rest of us ought to get it without even asking."
