About Me

Sigh.

So, you want to get married and think you have a case?

Okay.

"I want to marry 3 women." When can I expect an invitation to your nuptials? Oh, it's a hypothetical? Then your argument is hypothetical.

"I want to marry my dog." When can I expect an invitation to your nuptials? Oh, it's a hypothetical designed to mock people that actually want to spend their lives together as a married couple? Please make sure to mock people, period. Were you unable to get a date for your cousin's marriage?

Arguments against Gay Marriage (and that is all this is, really)

"It's unnatural. You shouldn't marry because you can't have/raise kids." It's amazing that you say that when Grandmothers and Grandfathers and Aunts and Uncles throughout this nation who are way beyond child bearing years did exactly that because they loved the children in their care as their own, did their best for them, even though they did not bear them.

I suggest you tell every single person that has been raised by extended family that they have an unnatural family - actually, I don't. I suggest you think before you open your mouth and say things that illustrate your poverty of spirit and education.

Here is this fucking appalling thread

"Ok, i am going to say this and hope it is taken as an observation and not a position.
There was a sizable backlash tonight against the President and his policies on gay rights. Under the radar in many states that we should have won ...like Iowa where idiot Ernst won...and many other places the backlash by religious right paid off for the GOP. Take Maine....

The openness and brazenness of the LBGT agenda and the media flaunting of gay marriages all across the country cost Dems dearly and threatens to do so in the future. It's not that there are many more LBGT folks around now...it's just that they have come out of the closets and the religious right does not like to face up to their existence..even among themselves. This issue alone cause many religious blacks and Latinos to stay home or to not vote for Dems. The same is true for the civil rights issue. The GOP knows there are many black voters out here...they just don't want to have to accept them or see them.

There have always been Log Cabin GOP but they were rarely publicized and thus they were embraced by the GOP under the radar. And there always have been many LBGT in the closets of power but they did not cause the GOP to become uncomfortable because they were in the closet.

How can I say these things...I attend church, I have many LBGT in my family. I hear the conversations, I see the voting patterns. It is even a bigger issue than abortion believe it or not. And the sad truth is that after having gained new rights under this President many in the LBGT community went out and voted for the GOP candidate last night.

No offense meant but I know this for a fact among my many LBGT friends."


Don't anyone dare fucking say that we were *NOT* told "we want a pony" because that shit right there was said, allowed to stand, and defended.

Monday Night Music

I can't believe it myself - I've been off of cigarettes for 4 months

I've had dreams about them, but I haven't backslid except in my dreams, and even then I know it is wrong to smoke.

Anybody trying to quit - hang in there. We can all beat this!

(I had another smoking dream last night, but I guess it's a nightmare, really)

What's for Dinner, Mon. June 29, 2015

Black bean "lasagna". It's meatless monday!

http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-slow-cooker-black-bean-enchiladas-dinner-recipes-from-the-kitchn-127016

It's also enchiladas, or whatever you want to really call it - but delicious, it is!

I absolutely despise bell pepper, so those are not included when I make mine, and nobody misses them.

The Whole World is Watching - Within Temptation

It seems appropriate on such an auspicious day for equality



I like to celebrate



bonus - for love

Democratic candidates need to address

income inequality, justice inequality, and finance in politics.

I don't think anyone denies that - but our party and our candidates need to address the we are too weak to do anything progressive nonsense that has plagued our party for the entirety of 3rd way's ascendency.

We can do better than that, and it's time to prove it, potential nominees.

I had a nightmare last night - Michelle Bachmann was my coworker.

:shudder:

I read an article yesterday about how she's still on the take, etc., even though she isn't running for political office. Somehow, in my dreamscape I ended up in a plenum diagnosing fiber optic cable problems with her. She was just as awful at that as she was in Congress, and mean to boot.

Ugh.

I thought I would share that with everyone. In the light of day it's hilarious, but it was spooky in my dream.

I love my Galaxy Note 4 - but

Did anyone have problems after the security patch? It went out not only to Galaxy phones, but tabs, too.

It is a train wreck.

Apple aficionados needn't get excited, I'm still well aware that I have superior hardware, and won't be changing ... ever.

I don't think I have ever loved my cat more than now.

I have a severe phobia of roaches, and a HUGE one crawled in under the door because it is raining. She has chased it all over the house, laid in wait, and is STILL keeping it at bay under the dresser in the bedroom.

She's like a terminator. I love her so.
