Proof Mitt Romney's "birth certificate" is fake

See running all the way down the left hand side? "VOID."

Obvious forgery. Go get 'em Sheriff Joe!

I like this map!


Nice new site design, too.

Back to the salt mines.

It's been fun being back in here again, but my editor finally delivered the developmental edits on my next novel. Now begins the long rewrite process that is going to totally consume my time for the next two months or so. Especially since she delivered the edits a month late, which puts more time pressure on me.

So it's time to sign back out of DU and start in on what I was supposed to start a month ago. When I get a chance to come back up for air I will poke my head in.

Okay, this qualifies.

I've often criticized President Obama for pretty words not often backed up with deeds when it comes to gay issues. This could change everything.


Somewhat buried in CNN's story on Barack Obama's fundraiser in New York is this little tidbit about his administration's plans for marriage equality—

He also outlined goals he hopes to accomplish under a second term, including the repeal of the Defense Of Marriage Act, which the administration has already stopped defending.

This is the first time Obama has said that he will actively work to repeal the law.

Go to it, Mister President. Let's see some arm twisting on this one.

Is Mitt Romney a psychopath?


Listening to this week’s encore presentation of This American Life, I found myself once again enraptured by the story of “the Psychopath Test” as discussed in this book by Jon Ronson. When the show first aired almost a year ago I was taken aback by its story of how the test was created, has been used, and has been abused, over the decades.

But in light of recent revelations I found myself with a different thought running through my head all through the show.

Is Mitt Romney a psychopath?

So I decided to apply the 20 question PCL-R test to good old Willard. Here’s what I found. Each question is scored on a scale of 0 (not at all applicable), 1 (sort of applicable), or 2 (spot on applicable); feel free to play along at home and see if you reach the same results I do.

Full test results available at the link.

I must say, my ignore list has gotten considerably longer these past few days.

Am I alone in this?

Fallout on marriage amendment hits local tourism Sam Walker | May 10, 2012


Almost immediately after the results were announced of Tuesday’s statewide referendum on a Constitutional amendment that defines marriage, threats started to emerge that out-of-state visitors were going to start heading elsewhere.

“After a tough fall and winter of dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, discussions over ferry taxes, beach closures, beach driving permits, game fish regulations, state budget cuts to our local attractions, and even challenges with building the bridges and road structures we need, this is just another challenge at a difficult time for one of the few remaining strong industries in our state,” Brady-Daniels said.

• “We just wanted to let you know that we have stopped planning our family reunion for next fall in Duck…our family had a teleconference this afternoon (including 99-year-old grandma/great and great-great grandma who grew up in Manteo)…we came together as a family and decided to spend our hard-earned (money) on Cape Cod, MA for obvious reasons.”

More at the link. Avoid the comments.

Individual rights trump states' rights.

Just sayin'....

Repeating a statement made elsewhere, so it doesn't get lost.

If you don't support LGBT rights, then you don't deserve to be a Democrat.

Period. I said it and I will not back down from it.

Please consider for a moment, what if these had been the remarks made.

At a certain point, I've just concluded that-- for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that-- I think women should be able to control their own bodies. Now-- I have to tell you that part of my hesitation on this has also been I didn't want to nationalize the issue. There's a tendency when I weigh in to think suddenly it becomes political and it becomes polarized.

And what you're seeing is, I think, states working through this issue-- in fits and starts, all across the country. Different communities are arriving at different conclusions, at different times. And I think that's a healthy process and a healthy debate. And I continue to believe that this is an issue that is gonna be worked out at the local level.

If it had been that women should be able to terminate a pregnancy, but it should be left up to the states to decide the issue, then would celebration be warranted?
