Welcome to Finley Experience

This website is dedicated to LGBT folks who are surviving in this crazy world.

What's good for one isn't necessarily good for another.

Attempting to control the hearts and souls of the masses through force and injustice only forces the seeds of dissension to grow. History has taught this lesson repeatedly. Perhaps, we'll learn the lesson this time.

Random Thought for the Day: Grandma's 75th

Every one should have a Little Bacon Bastard from Fatboy's Bar and Grill for their 75th birthday. Remember to hold the cheese if you're lactose intolerant. The burger comes with lettuce, a fried green tomato, a pickle, onion rings and fries. Condiment packages served on the side. You can't beat the burger!

"Secrets" and "Pair of Jeans" 2 new poems on AC


"Secrets" is about the concerns before publishing or reading a new poem, or speaking in front of a group; about the feelings involved with expressing trauma before an audience.

Pair of Jeans

"Pair of Jeans" is quick little happy poem. I haven't worn a pair of Levi's in over 10 years. And before today I never owned a brand new pair; we always got them from the thrift store.

Cameras Every Where

Random thought for the day:

Governments are trying to become like God/Goddess by installing cameras every where to keep an eye on the populace. Apparently, it isn't enough to say God/Goddess knows your every move, so behave. Now, the government says: we know your every move, here's your fine. I guess the threat of punishment in the afterlife is no longer a suitable threat. Now, the fear of punishment on earth must serve as governmental threat to keep citizens in line. Fortunately, citizens, I have never feared a camera. And I always say what I mean. So, here's my great big middle finger served up to cameras across the nation!

Treasury Secretary Paulson is a JACKASS

Once again I made the mistake of watching congress on CSPAN. What the hell was I thinking? Sec. Paulson wants a "blank check" of tax payer money set aside for Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac just in case the two GSE's go under. This pisses me all the way off. Government Sponsered Enterprises are being rescued by tax payer dollars, when average citizens are bankrupt. The CEO's of these GSE companies are millionaires. Quit paying the CEO's of failing businesses out of my pocket. Protest government bailouts! Protest the theft of tax dollars by the Secretary of Treasury who is using our money to help keep his big business buddies flying on their private jets!
