I still wish they hadn't approved gay marriage but had rather cancelled marriage altogether and left marriage as something non governmental that you can choose to do on your own or with your church.

Obama, the rainbow riding unicorn?
I am not saying he won't possibly be the most amazing president ever, I am just saying its a little early for so many people to be praising him like he is jesus or a unicorn riding on a rainbow.

Thanks Chuck Schumer
Thank you for writing and sharing your thoughts about America's financial crisis. I agree with you that giving the Secretary of the Treasury authority over a $700 billion dollar fund to stabilize the financial system, without any checks on his authority, or oversight of his actions, would have been a grave mistake. However, the severity of this economic crisis forced the Congress to act in order to save Main Street from further financial pain. If we had not acted when we did, small businesses trying to fill orders and meet payroll, students looking to pay for college, consumers looking to buy cars and so many others would have faced even greater economic hardships, which would have been disastrous for household wealth and jobs in our country.
That is why I made the difficult decision to support the administration's rescue plan after insisting on changes to the program to ensure that taxpayers will share in the rewards of recovery, that executives of these mismanaged financial institutions would not be enriched with taxpayer money, and that there would be effective oversight of the program. When the economy recovers, taxpayers should be able to recoup most, or all, of this money because the federal government will earn a return from any investments it makes in banks needing assistance. To hold the banks' executives accountable, the bill requires that all companies that benefit from government assistance limit how much they pay their top employees and, in many cases, eliminate golden parachutes entirely. And to guarantee effective oversight of the rescue program, major oversight mechanisms were written into the legislation, including the creation of a new Inspector General and Congressional oversight panel.
Finally, we forced the Administration to add protections for homeowners into the bill that address the eye of the financial storm - the foreclosure crisis. Of course, this is only one part of a comprehensive solution needed to get our economy back on the right track. Congress stands ready to deliver a broad-based economic stimulus package to invest in Main Street, create new high-paying jobs, and keep the engine of our economy going.
Again, thank you for contacting me on this important issue. Please do not hesitate to contact me again if I can be of further assistance on this, or any other matter.

Conservatives in Leather
When we were there we hung out with our friend Christoph and some older guy in jeans and leather v-neck open furry chest teeshirt came over to talk to us. He said and I quote:
We better vote for McCain beacuse if we don't its gonna be the beginning of the Niggers and Spics ruling the streets.
I am not even sure what his reasoning was or if it was just that Obama is black, and what do the "spics" have to do with it? I wish I had paid more attention so I could have gotten some better quotes but I was too drunk and didn't want to get into a fight.
I mean think about it. There we were in the gayest of all gay bars, where you would expect people to be the most liberal. It just goes to show you that no group of people consists of just one type of person.

Sarah Palin and Wikipedia
Well, it turns out:
Someone - and apparently it was just one person - felt like the existing biography wasn't appropriate for a vice-presidential candidate. On Friday, 15 minutes before the rumor that John McCain had picked Palin as his running mate, a Wikipedia editor discovered 30 mostly favorable changes had been made to the Alaska governor's profile.
She was called "a politician of eye-popping integrity" and sections on her participation in a beauty pageant and her alleged use of influence to get her former brother-in-law fired were diminished.
The same person editing McCain. That was probably the most affective way of shaping people ideas without spending a dime.
However, damn that thing is busy. Look at the history on it
It seems like everytime you look at it, it is different.

Black vs Woman President
I mean black men had the right to vote fifty years before any woman. Why not let it be the other way around this time and let the woman have a first, first. What really surprises me is that making fun of Hillary for being a woman, calling her bitch, etc is acceptable while calling racially demeaning names at Obama is considered unacceptable. I guess woman still are just less equal in the main stream - thats sad. On democracy now they just had a news brief saying that on average woman are paid 16% less then men for he same job. That just blows my mind.
According to it looks like Blacks are only 12.4% or 37.1 million of the US population while women are probably closer to 50% of the US population and maybe more.
I guess I always thought there were more black people. Probably because I grew up in buffalo which has such a large black population and then moved to South Carolina for a while which also had a lot of black people. Before reading that I seriously thought blacks were like 40%+ of the population. I guess I was just judging on my own observations.

When I look at that girl with the tape on her mouth I feel like I am about to be gay bashed as soon as it is ripped off.
There is freedom of and from Religion and the State can not endorse a religion .... Now if this is true then I have some questions....
Why is being married to more then one person like how the Mormons did it is illegal... Wouldn't this not be granting them the freedom of everyone else... Wouldn't it be discriminatory to Mormons....I say it is.... Aren't there other countries where people have Multiple wives (or they used to) and the wives are about different duties in the home... Not sure if that is cultural or religious but why is that not legal here....
But I guess my real question is how can two people say the love each other get married by god and say an oath "Till Death do You part" yes in god's eyes only death can end it.... Then they get all kinds of special benefits from the government ?
The Only thing that I can think of is they took the English Version of Marriage and no one has had a strong enough case to call it unconstitutional.............
Reason I say claim is that for all we know maybe he thought that he would gain votes from whom ever he lost votes from... Maybe he knew he was what the media looks at as the swing vote and if he caused (again in the eyes of others at least) it not to pass he didn't want to be that guy in history... He didn't want to look back and say I blew it.... He didn't want to be on as they say the wrong side of history.....
What is really crazy is there is a lawsuit over this.... I think part of the tie in is that people who voted to pass the bill got money and lots of it from gay rights groups the contention is that he was one of them.... I don't buy it.....
