I Love the Gays

Help them defeat Prop 8 in California. Learn more here and then donate.

If you don’t think that gay marriage does not affect you or your civil rights than think again. It wasn’t too long ago that it was perfectly legal to have laws that prohibited interracial marriage. And it was the great state of California that finally put an end to this idea that states could regulate who could marry who based on race and eventually lead to this opinion handed down from the Supreme Court of the United States;

Marriage is one of the “basic civil rights of man,” fundamental to our very existence and survival…. To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State’s citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discrimination. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State.

Hmmmm, a basic civil right of man!!! Most importantly it’s a freedom of choice that cannot be regulated by religious belief.

Oh, if you become V.P.
Oh, its Canada for me.
Oh if you become VP
Oh, its Canada for me.
It’s Canada for me.

Hey Sarah Palin
Did you really once inquire
Whether you could throw library books into a big bonfire?
Oh God, My eyes.

This really might be our demise.
This pack of lies.

Hey Sarah Palin,
Just because you’re good at shootin’
Doesn’t mean you h ave the ammo to negotiate with Putin

Are you on Coke?
This fuckin’ country’s up in smoke.
Oh what a joke.

refrain:
Oh, if you become V.P.
Oh, what will it mean for me?
Oh if you become VP

Just because I can see the moon

the mad man who would cast a vote for you.

Hey Sarah Palin

that she could not have an abortion?

Oh, if you become V.P.
Oh, its Canada for me.
Oh if you become VP
Oh, its Canada for me.
It’s Canada for me.

Word History

October 13th, 2008 by Steve O

Barack and Hussein are Semitic words. Americans have been named with Semitic names since the founding of the republic. Fourteen of our 43 presidents have had Semitic names (see below). And American English contains many Arabic-derived words that we use every day and without which we would be much impoverished. America is a world civilization with a world heritage, something Cunningham will never understand.

Barack is a Semitic word meaning “to bless” as a verb or “blessing” as a noun. In its Hebrew form, barak, it is found all through the Bible. It first occurs in Genesis 1:22 — “And God blessed (ḇāreḵə) them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.”

Paul Krugman wins Nobel Prize for Economics.

October 13th, 2008 by Dusty

Krugman is an unapologetic liberal so we can all be proud of Mr. Krugman, a frequent guest on Olbermann’s Countdown show. From the MSNBC writeup:

Paul Krugman, the Princeton University scholar and New York Times columnist, won the Nobel prize in economics Monday for his analysis of how economies of scale can affect trade patterns and the location of economic activity.

Krugman has been a harsh critic of the Bush administration and the Republican Party in The New York Times, where he writes a regular column and has a blog called “Conscience of a Liberal.”

He has come out forcefully against John McCain during the economic meltdown, saying the Republican candidate is “more frightening now than he was a few weeks ago” and earlier that the GOP has become “the party of stupid.”

I really love the last quote. ;) Below is Paul Krugman on Rachel Maddow’s show from October 6th.

Palin lies in conference call to reporters

October 13th, 2008 by Dusty

Listen to the conference call here. During a conference call, Sarah Palin, who also refers to TrooperGate as TaserGate, stated:

Well, I’m very very pleased to be cleared of any legal wrongdoing … any hint of any kind of unethical activity there. Very pleased to be cleared of any of that.

Big ol lie, because the report (pdf) did find her guilty of abusing the power of her office for personal gain, an ethics violation. This woman evidently has no shame. Part of the transcript below from the Alaska Daily News site:

Palin: Hey, thank you so, Meg. Thank you so much. Thank you also to our local reporters up there in Alaska. Even hearing your names make me feel like I’m right there with you at home. It’s good to get to speak with you. Let me talk a little bit about the Tasergate issue if you guys would let me and, Meg, you want me to just jump right on in there?

Stapleton: Sure governor, go ahead.

Palin: OK cool.

Well, I’m very very pleased to be cleared of any legal wrongdoing … any hint of any kind of unethical activity there. Very pleased to be cleared of any of that. Todd did what anyone would have done given this state trooper’s very, very troubling behavior and his dangerous threats against our family. Todd did what I think any Alaskan would do.

And he, Todd did what the state’s Department of Law Web site tells anyone to do if they have a concern about a state trooper. And that’s you go to the commissioner and you express your concern. And Todd did what our personal detail asked him to do. Bob Cockrell early on as I was elected and was asked are there any threats against you, and Todd brought the concern as I did to Commissioner Monegan about the state trooper’s threats. He did what any - I think - any rational person would do so again, nothing to apologize there with Todd’s actions and again very pleased to be cleared of any legal wrongdoing.

Why do these people think we are all ignorant? Why does Sarah Palin have the ability to lie so easily and to reporters? She also contradicts herself, as per her usual. First says she is happy as a clam to be cleared and then bitches that the report was just partisan politics…which btw..it wasn’t.

Like her running mate, she is a delusional, lying bag o batshit folks..

H/T to TPM for the link to the audio.

Today Marks the Beginning of the Last 100 Days of George W. Bush

October 12th, 2008 by Steve O

That’s it folks. 100 more days ’til sparkly ponies and puppy dogs march again.

As of Sunday, President Bush will have 100 days remaining in office.  If ever there was a time to rejoice at a President departing it will be in January of 2009 when George W. Bush returns to Texas.  With his poll numbers now lower than Richard Nixon’s the day he resigned and approaching the all time low recorded during the Truman administration, the American people and frankly most of the world are ready for Bush’s exit.

The village must be happy that it’s finally getting its idiot back.

No On Prop. 8

October 12th, 2008 by Windspike

The nutters who have no better use for their cash are ramping up their campaign to trick people into voting yes on California’s Proposition 8. It’s quite simple. If you love some one, who happens to be the same sex, and you decide to get married in a civil ceremony (or a religious one if you like, and they let you), what harm does it do to heterosexual marriage? None.

My marriage will not harm any one else’s marriage. The larger question is what is it about heterosexual marriage that needs protection?

What would it mean to heterosexuals if they were prevented from getting married?

Of course, simply because you disagree doesn’t make your position correct:
