So, did you hear the one about the Georgia congressman?? :D

“It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he’s the one who proposed this national security force. I’m just trying to bring attention to the fact that we may — may not, I hope not — but we may have a problem with that type of philosophy of radical socialism or Marxism. That’s exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it’s exactly what the Soviet Union did. When he’s proposing to have a national security force that’s answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he’s showing me signs of being Marxist.”


That was the well thought out ideas of 10th congressional district representative Paul Broun.

But, but... clearly, clearly people know that is an off-base, extremist kind of logic, right?
Right?

All i can say is, I think a left-leaning moderate like me will avoid visiting Georgia anytime soon...

>_< yikes!



yep... people dun lost their minds.

OK, here's the scoop.

God willing i will figure this crap out soon. For a while i may be running both blogs simultaneously, until i figure out if wordpress is worth figuring out. If it looks like it's going to work out in the long run, i'll most likely leave off on LJ.

Anyway, anyway, keep watching, and hopefully i will find the time to be entertaining again very soon!

Possibly moving this blog.

In the interests of developing this further as an entertainment blog open to the public, i may be moving it's location to a) another livejournal, or b) my old blogger blog. Both are currently unused and either would serve the purpose.

I'm fond of this journal and i've had it for... 7 years? Making six years of personal history private seems terribly time consuming, lol, and i'm lazy.

So, we'll see. I want to make a decision before i have too much more to move because, again... i'm lazy, ha ha.

It's Friday, and i give you.....

I was just going to add some picture to the last post... but these really have a story that are all their own.

Here you go.



Love means... getting to proudly enter into marriage with the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, and shouting it to the whole world.



"Phyllis Lyon, 79, and Del Martin, 83, who have been a couple for over 51 years, said their vows at city hall after Mayor Gavin Newsom ordered officials to wed gay couples and issue marriage licenses in an act of civil disobedience against a state law that bars same-sex marriages.

Lyon and Martin stood facing each other and beamed when a city official pronounced them not husband and wife but “spouses for life.”"

How true.



A world full of love.


To have, and to hold.


"Robin Tyler, left, and Diane Olson rejoice after marrying in a Jewish ceremony on the steps of the Beverly Hills courthouse. . . The rabbi [a woman] had barely intoned the words that Olson and Tyler had waited so long to hear -- "By the power vested in me by the state of California . . ." -- when the crowd roared its approval, momentarily drowning out [Rabbi Denise] Eger, who continued: ". . . I now pronounce you spouses for life!""

With all the hate in the world, it boggles my mind that people try to prevent love.

There are a lot of things to be thankful for today -- and i am. Very, very thankful. For the first time in almost a decade, i AM proud to be American. I'm VERY proud of my state -- thinking rationally and blue, and passing both proposal 1 and 2, legalizing medical marijuana and measures for stem cell research respectively.

This morning, i was filled with hope and a sense that things are really going to get better now; there will be progress, and we can be the country we have so much potential to be.


But of course, there is no such thing as perfect, and this morning can be no exception. The religious right did score one hit yesterday... one very cruel, very calculated blow to the rights of a group of Americans who are represented in my two best friends in the world.


California's Propostion 8, and Why Mormons Can Go Fuck Themselves

from http://www.smartvoter.org/2008/11/04/ca/state/prop/8/

BACKGROUND

In March 2000, California voters passed Proposition 22 to specify in state law that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California. In May 2008, the California Supreme Court ruled that the statute enacted by Proposition 22 and other statutes that limit marriage to a relationship between a man and a woman violated the equal protection clause of the California Constitution. It also held that individuals of the same sex have the right to marry under the California Constitution. As a result of the ruling, marriage between individuals of the same sex is currently valid or recognized in the state.

PROPOSAL

This measure amends the California Constitution to specify that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California. As a result, notwithstanding the California Supreme Court ruling of May 2008, marriage would be limited to individuals of the opposite sex, and individuals of the same sex would not have the right to marry in California.

FISCAL EFFECTS

Because marriage between individuals of the same sex is currently valid in California, there would likely be an increase in spending on weddings by same-sex couples in California over the next few years. This would result in increased revenue, primarily sales tax revenue, to state and local governments.

By specifying that marriage between individuals of the same sex is not valid or recognized, this measure could result in revenue loss, mainly from sales taxes, to state and local governments. Over the next few years, this loss could potentially total in the several tens of millions of dollars. Over the long run, this measure would likely have little fiscal impact on state and local governments.



Summary of Arguments FOR Proposition 8:
Proposition 8 restores what 61% of voters already approved: marriage is only between a man and a woman. Four judges in San Francisco should not have overturned the people's vote. Prop. 8 fixes that mistake by reaffirming traditional marriage, but doesn't take away any rights or benefits from gay domestic partners.

Summary of Arguments AGAINST Proposition 8:
Equality under the law is a fundamental freedom. Regardless of how we feel about marriage, singling people out to be treated differently is wrong. Prop. 8 won't affect our schools, but it will mean loving couples are treated differently under our Constitution and denied equal protection under the law.



So, now you know what it's all about, just in case you've been under a rock. And Mormons? What do they have to do with this?

"The main reason the ban on marriage rights for gay and lesbian
couples has been able to finance a massive advertizing campaign
is that the LDS church is bankrolling the entire effort. Up to
40 percent of the financing comes from Mormons, who have also
sent countless volunteers to the state to canvass door to door.
It's all legal, and totally within their democratic rights, but
it is striking that one single religious grouping could invest so
much in attempting to strip civil equality from gay couples"


(Andrew Sullivan)


... like they have room to talk.


Of course, it's not JUST the mormons, it's all the self-righteous bible-thumpers who are more concerned with keeping other people from loving each other than practicing what they f'ing preach. I wonder, is extortion a sin??

On October 22, a contributor who recently helped underwrite a San Diego event that raised money to defeat Proposition 8 received a letter from ProtectMarriage.com, proponents of Proposition 8, demanding a donation of at least $10,000.[40] The letter requested that the recipient "withdraw its support of Equality California," the organization that is part of the campaign against Proposition 8, and threatened to publish the names of companies and organizations that supported Equality California but "chose not to donate in like manner to ProtectMarriage.com."

“ Were you to elect not to donate comparably, it would be a clear indication
that you are in opposition to traditional marriage. You would leave us no
other reasonable assumption. The names of any companies and organizations
that choose not to donate in like manner to ProtectMarriage.com but have
given to Equality California will be published. It is only fair for
Proposition 8 supporters to know which companies and organizations oppose
traditional marriage. ”


The letter was signed by Ron Prentice, the campaign chairman for Yes on Prop 8; Edward Dolejsi, executive director of the California Catholic Conference; Mark Jansson, an executive committee member of ProtectMarriage.com; and Andrew Pugno, general counsel for ProtectMarriage.com.

When asked whether ProtectMarriage.com planned to name businesses that have supported the No on 8 campaign, Prentice initially said he was unaware of any such effort. "I'm not familiar of any organized attack against organizations that have given to No on 8," he said. But when asked about the letters, Prentice confirmed they were authentic. A ProtectMarriage.com spokeswoman estimated that 36 companies were targeted for the letter.

The executive director of Equality California, Geoffrey Kors, said that two other business owners had also received the letter, saying, "It's truly an outrageous attempt to extort people."
