Sorry for the absence, but I’ve been moving and you know how that sucks.
So my first thought of the day is about technology and how it has failed us. Not only do I not have a flying car or a jetpack, but the only people who get to play with laser guns earn minimum wage checking out my groceries.
While this bill extends civil rights laws to include gays, it sucks that it has to be tagged onto a Defense Spending bill in order to get it to pass. It’s horrible that as a nation, we can’t accept people as people.
Apparently protecting gays from hate crimes means you’re all for sex with corpses. Really, at least according to Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas.
MSNBC for “U.N. approves resolution to rid world of nukes”. Great. Now that we’re resolved, what are we going to do about it? Really, there’s genocide in Darfur, the UN passes a resolution. Iran is developing nukes. The UN passes a resolution, and somehow despite that resolution, it all keeps happening again.
In Oklahoma, a law going into effect Nov. 1st means details of every abortion performed is published on a website. While the name is withheld, there’s enough information for people to put together who is being described in smaller communities.
And yet some Republicans refuse to read history and believe the Confederate States of America were the perfect Republican Libertarian nation.
New York Gov. Paterson took a moment to fire back at President Obama with this comment, and I think there’s some justification there. the Democrats control both houses, the Republicans have shown virtually no willingness to break party lines on anything, nor accede to reality. They’ve been about as mature as a toddler needing a time out.
They freak out over ACORN, make a law to cut funding for companies with elections complaints against them, hurry up to pass it, and now it threatens defense contractors, many of whom have elections violations to their names. Oh yeah, and ACORN never received federal funding.
You know, the part about the specifics that must be named in a search warrant.
This time, he wrote a law defunding companies that prohibit employees from suing them when they are negligent in cases of rape. Hard to describe, but worth the read. You know, maybe we should elect comedians to Congress, and fewer people who are only good as sources of comedic material.
While it would be a shock to know just how much a gallon of gas actually costs, and it would do us better in the long run to give that money to alternate fuels industries, it would be a disaster of economy.
Maybe he’s just pining for the fjords.
A bit presumptuous of them to want to re-write the word of God, don’t you think? Don’t you have to be like, King James to do that? I thought it was a joke at first.
The percentage f Americans who are non-believers is at an all-time high (12%) and the amount who are Christians are at an all time low (76%). Nearly a quarter of people in their 20’s profess no religion.
