Lived most of my adult life in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. Left a piece of my heart there.

It's impossible to be progressive without advocating metric measurement

Here is a map of all the countries using the imperial system of measurement which (in addition to the points of the video) is based on the King's thumb and foot. Remember, conservatives love British royalty!

If Obama wants to make a legacy, and drive the Tea party so far around the bend they disappear into their own anatomy, he would push through proper metrification in 2015 after we get out the vote in 2014 to make a Democratic majority.

If metric is good enough for the US Army and schoolchildren, it is good enough for the USA. Or we comfort ourselves that at least we have Burma among advanced countries with us.

Stop the "lifestyle choice" assumption & the obsession with gay sex and you

Stop the "lifestyle choice" assumption & the obsession with gay sex and you stop almost all of the objections.

The "biblical objections" can be dealt with by asking people to observe all of Leviticus or none of it or explain how they know more than their God and get to pick and choose. Further, Jesus said nothing against or about homosexuality.

Anti-gay people seem to spend more time thinking about gay sex than gay people. Most gay people when thinking about gay relationships are thinking about balance of chores, romantic dinners, living wills for emergencies, survivor benefits, Ikea furniture, whether to stop renting and buy a house together, what's for dinner, does my lover like my shirt, can I walk home or should I take a taxi to avoid a beating, etc.

Gay people choose to be gay no less and no more than heteros choose to be hetero.
