Wis. A.G. seeking emergency court order to end marriage equality

Just got the push…

Swimming against the tide, I see. This won't end well for him

"Pull my finger, sonny"

"See, Vlad, this is how you grease the rubes. You start small."

"You ought to start going shirtless, Vladimir. You've certainly got the body for it."

"For an 'Evil Empire' this place sure looks an awful lot like Magic Kingdom."

"No, seriously, pull my finger."

Republicans Kiss the Gays Goodbye as GOProud Closes Up Shop

Stockholm Syndrome has ended for yet another entity. After GOProud founder Jimmy LaSalvia quit the organization and left the Republican Party last year for their intolerant views, the organization as a whole is now packing up and leaving town. Yes, the gays are now free from the shackles from the people that hate them the most: Republicans.

The organization, just five years old, has had a hard time adapting to the strong anti-gay crowd that is the GOP. After the founder had called it quits, its Co-founder Chris Barron also left the GOProud organization in 2013 after the ultra conservative CPAC denied them representation and participation from the 3-day forum. They were denied again for the 2014 conference. The organization, which has dedicated itself to providing for LGBT wingnuts with their their equally messed-up straight counterparts, finally came out of the closet and realized that they just aren’t growing as they should.

Gee, I wonder why that is. Could it be because 76% of LGBT citizens voted for Barack Obama in 2012? It’s a little hard to grow when your own people are 3/4 Democrat, not Republican.

But this stagnating should not be a surprise. This, coming from the organization that had Ann Coulter as a member of their advisory council since 2011 even though she told the GOProud audience that she did not support gay marriage and that marriage is not a civil right. This is the organization that endorsed Mitt Romney for president even though he opposes same sex marriage and civil unions, and supports a federal marriage amendment banning same sex marriage. This is the organization that sent out attack ads AGAINST Barney Frank and Democrats who support same-sex marriage. This is the organization that harbored opposition to the Employment Nondiscrimination Act and the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. This is the organization that purposely outed a political consultant from Rick Perry’s campaign to prove gays really reside in the GOP.

The Game of Thrones Viewer Release Form



As the latest episode of Game of Thrones has so dispiritingly proven, the show is extremely uncaring toward fans’ emotional investment or admiration of any character. The situation has become so affecting, in fact, that the series’ creators are now legally required to receive a signed release form from every viewer of the show. Below is the form, to be printed, signed and mailed to HBO headquarters by every GoT fan.

GAME OF THRONES VIEWER RELEASE FORM

I, ________, hereby acknowledge that at any given moment during Game of Thrones, ________ may perish in a soul-crushing and utterly depressing manner.

I relinquish all rights to my emotional health as I continue to watch this series, well aware that any hopes or desires I have for positive outcomes are destined to go unfulfilled, and understand that the only real outcomes of this show end in heartbreak, disappointment, gore, and cold, unmerciful destruction.

In any scene during Season ______, I recognize that ________ is under constant threat of death by axe-to-head, head-crush-with-hands, sour-grape-juice-at-wedding, dragon charring, knife-to-throat, general stabbing, beheading, hungry-rat-in-a-bucket, burning-to-death, crossbow fire, big rock, zombie freeze, falling, tripping, weird dream, mean ghost, giant’s fist, infection, disease, too much walking, horse bucking, rancid meat, too little sleep, too much sleep, drowning, wolf bite, strangulation, mercy kill, old age, tangled beard, push through moon door, being buried alive, rotten smells, frequent nudity, not-being-nude-enough, wind chill, dehydration, uppity boar, crucifixion, sharp stick, too much sex, torture, diving bird, hot pies, mudslide, pointy chair, fetus-stabbing, stiff breeze, tiny sword, or by simply getting punched too much.

I accept that all characters made to appear good will eventually disappoint me, by either raping another character, killing another good character, or doing something so disturbing that I would rather be physically ill than continue to watch his or her actions.

I hereby disregard my trained expectations for narrative television, understanding that this show has no respect for ______’s moral ideals, and all traditional acts of heroism or nobility shall likely be met with terrible and undeserved retribution. No one is safe, and I have no right to treat the show with scorn or malice when another kind-hearted individual has his or her eyes gouged and head imploded by the callused mitts of a brute no viewer has ever cared about.

It is with all this in mind that I, _______ willingly continue to watch Game of Thrones, and freely invite the feelings of awful, hopeless agony imposed by the narrative events of said program.
More will die, probably the ones I like, and I can’t do anything about it.

SIGNED,
