Shithouse rat

I'm a bipolar writer in the Naked City. I'm not playing with a full deck. I don't have all my dots on the dice. My cheese is sliding off my cracker. I don't have both oars in the water. I'm a bubble off plum. In other words, I'm crazier than a shithouse rat. These are my stories. Comments--short or long, nasty or nice--always welcome!

Mr(s). President, what's your sign?

Originally uploaded by Elvira Black.
First of all, let me preface this by saying that I believe in astrology. To what extent I do is still up for consideration.

As a Cancer, for instance, I always get along famously with Scorpios. Other Cancers posess some of the qualities I don’t like about myself, so it’s sometimes a strained relationship.

Cancers are often called the Jewish mothers of the zodiac—and I do have that nurturing instinct, though I have no children.

But here’s a bigger issue:
What if you charted all the candidates and decided, astrologically speaking, who would be the best “fit” for the country? (USA: Cancer, July 4—just like me).

Nancy Reagan, for one, consulted with astrologers on behalf of her husband---in terms of best time to travel. Decisions of state, etc. Hitler used astrology to forsee his reign as predestined, reveling in the predictions of Nostradamus. It worked for awhile for both of them, so who am I to scoff?

I tend to think a Scorpio—like maybe Hillary—would make an exemplary president. If she were in her husband’s shoes during impeachment hearings, surely she would have calmly admitted her mistake, announced that she and her spouse were working it through, expressed the proper regret—and move on.

More to come…

I doubt it, there would have been the lack of semen on Monica's dress LOL

We had a Prime Minister called MacKenzie King.
He used to hold Séances to consult with his dead mother and dead dog on what to do next with the country.
He is our longest serving and one of the most ,loved leaders.
Maybe you have to be a little odd to be a good leader.
IS Robin Willians an American LMAO

Makes much more sense than voting for the candidate that you would most like to have a beer with like many voters did last time around!

I'm, for what it's worthless, an Aquarius. Don't buy into Hillary. That's just me. Well, because I'm an Aquarius.

As a Cancer and a person I'm not sure about Hilary but not because of Bill.

She began campaigning for president the day she was elected senator

She pandered to Upstate which was okay until 9/11 when she and Chuckala ((his parents live in North Shore Towers where my Mom lived and they didn't even spring for a little lox when he was elected but they all loved him anyway and call him that) didn't scream up and down for our fair share of 9/11 aid.

She didn't even have the guts to vote against the war when most of her constituents opposed it

Most people think she's too strong. I think she wimped out as senator when New York needed all the great leaders it could get

I'm having this argument with all my girl friends who all mass adore her

I am inclined to go with Kucinich, despite him being a Libra (because we all know what Libra men are like). Check out to see what he's about.

Do you think I should consult with my dead grandmother and companion animals?

That's funny, I too am a Cancerian - July 8th. We can be crabby at times but definitely the Jewish Mother of the Zodiac.

Barck Obama is a Leo, not sure how that would work, but I'm watching him closely.

Walker: His dead DOG? LOL...Hey, whatever works...

Brink: This is true! But looking at Hillary, she seems prim enough to keep her fluids pretty much to herself.

jm: Yeah, Americans are always suckers for beer commercials, so I guess this was just the logical extension of that. But what happens if the Prez got drunk and there was a national emergency? Come to think of it, it wouldn't much matter considering who we've got in there now.

Commentator: Aquarius? Cool! I have a dear friend who's an Aquarius--though I haven't seen her in ages and I think she's taken off for parts unknown. Very unconventional, very enlightened.

Pia: I'm not sure about Hillary either, and I wouldn't vote for her based on her sign. I think I'll start charting the other candidates though (lol).

Ice: Kucinich? How very Ice of you to select a candidate I've never heard of (though maybe that's just me). I'm guessing he's very liberal in his issues though--will check out the link. As for your grandmother and companion animals--hey, I wouldn't rule it out. Why not?

g: Well, so far that's you, me, and Pia as Cancers--not a bad sign in both senses of the word! My ex-boyfriend was also a Cancer--born two days before me--I always said I wanted an older man (lol). The relationship lasted 20 years, so I guess that says something. Both my current and ex-boyfriend are Leo rising, and are very different, but I can see the Leo in them--esp. my current boyfriend--fits him to a 't.'

Ha, my husband is also a Cancer, but he is on the cusp, July 22nd and is not as true a Cancer as I am. Although he does have the nuturing thing down (that's also the Jewish Daddy in him so double whammy). I am not so up on astrology of it all, just more or less the personality traits which believe them or not are fairly accurate.

A Jewish Cancer parent--can't get much better than that!

Yes, the traits can be very accurate--esp if combined with the rising sign, or ascendant.

If my sun is in Taurus, moon in Capricorn, and rising in Leo, what does that mean? Just curious.

Hi, I am florin g. I didn't know Hillary Clinton is a Scorpio and I don't know if this is good or bad.
I hope she's better than Bush because this man is a disaster for USA. On tha other hand, she's a woman and maybe
a feminine vision about how things should work in this world would be better. I mean less war, more fresh air.
From an astrologycal point of view, I know that Romania president is a Scorpio and believe me,
there is no peace around here. Now, of course, every character has its own good and bad sides. I think that if
a Scorpio is smart and wise enough to sorround himself by very good counsellors and proves not to be too much
in love with power, Hillary Clinton would be a very good president for you, americans.

Sorry--I mistakenly referred to you as "g" above. Those replies were for you.

florin g:

Yes, Scorpio can be a double edged sword--as can all signs, but perhaps Scorpio most of all, as it is considered the most powerful sign of the Zodiac.

Picasso--aka the greatest modern artist of the 20th century hands down, IMHO--was a Scorpio with Leo rising. Same as my boyfriend BG, who is also a portrait painter, and a very good one. I always tell him if he puts his mind to it, (and with me as promoter/manager since Cancers are great at publicity) he could become a household word too someday.

elvira - good job on promoting your BF - I just love that side of you and - ofcourse he does - in return, he becomes even more loyal - and even more loving for you.
