According to the Washington Post, here’s where we stand this morning: While the map may look demoralizing at first look, remember that those nine counties contain just under half of Alabama’s population: About 40 percent of the state’s residents live in counties that went forward with the same-sex unions, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Couples [Read More…]
This is positively brilliant. If ever there was a godless music charity concert, who would you want to see there? My dream lineup would include Dan Barker, Shelley Segal, Roy Zimmerman, Jaclyn Glenn, and Tim Minchin. The times I’ve gotten to sing with them (except Minchin) have been some of my favorite musical experiences ever. Man, [Read More…]
“Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix.” ~ Judge Leon M. [Read More…]
A North Carolina man has shot his bi-polar son in the chest (the son is going to live). Granted, the son has a history of psychological issues with violent behavior. It’s a pity he wasn’t receiving treatment. Still, the proper treatment is not a gunshot wound and prayer: A North Carolina man said this week [Read More…]
GAY RIGHTS: Alabama Governor issues one of the stupidest and most dishonest statements I’ve heard in a while.
I just read that Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley released this statement: “I am disappointed that a single Federal court judge disregarded the vote of the Alabama people to define marriage as between a man and woman… This issue has created confusion with conflicting direction for Probate Judges in Alabama. Probate Judges have a unique responsibility [Read More…]
“Pox parties” are when parents get their children together for a party to deliberately expose them to one child with chicken pox, thus getting their bout with chicken pox out of the way. Now parents who are hopping on the anti-vaccination train are doing the same with measles, prompting the state of California to release [Read More…]
The most recent veterans bill marks a rarity in our current political atmosphere: a truly bipartisan effort. It passed the House unanimously, which is saying something. But a few Republicans in the Senate see it as “entitlements” we cannot afford: Before passing the bill, senators voted 75-19 to turn aside objections to its cost raised [Read More…]
Sorry, no morning happiness post because I want to get right into this. Last night Roy Moore ordered probate judges in Alabama to defy the federal courts and the Supreme Court and to not issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples today. This puts probate judges in the position of deciding who they obey. If you [Read More…]
Same-sex marriage is set to begin tomorrow in Alabama. After flirting with sedition last week, here, in the eleventh hour, Roy Moore is pulling some extremely underhanded bullshit: Late Sunday night, Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore issued an order in which he instructs state probate judges to neither issue nor recognize a marriage license for [Read More…]
BREAKING: Shooting near University of Kansas campus. Suspects on foot, still at-large. Michaelyn and I are ok.
I’ve been contacted by some of you who are seeing the breaking story of the shooting just off the KU campus. As far as I can tell three people have been airlifted to a hospital and the shooters are on foot and have yet to be apprehended. Lawrence police said they’re investigating a shooting that [Read More…]
This is pretty much how each of my Nova games feels. It wound up with me cleaning four people off of golem myself. I waited for someone to get low and was lucky it was their healer. I deleted him, then tried to juke Valla’s skills while I was invisible. She caught me with her [Read More…]
The other day I wrote a bit about Pope Happy popping over to Slovakia to support an anti-gay referendum. Considering the majority of Slovakia’s population is Catholic and with Pope Progressive endorsing discrimination, I figured the referendum would pass. I’m happy to report it did not: Only 21.4% of those eligible voted, the national statistics [Read More…]
Good morning/afternoon/evening/night everyone, Brooke here. As someone who loves poetry and occasionally writes about sex, I thought I would share this awesome spoken word poem about sex being ‘dirty’ by a poet named Colin Matty. It’s humorous and thoughtful and may or may not get you in the mood after watching it. Enjoy, you filthy [Read More…]
