Things You Must Read: "Dude, I Totally Unmarried You Just Now"

However, unlike any marriages on my list, the real, legal and actual same-sex marriages in California are in danger of being destroyed by people who aren’t actually in them. There is no initiative on the California November ballot to “protect” marriage from already-married Creed fans or Pepsi drinkers. There will be one to “protect” marriage from already-married same-sex couples.
Which is to say: Isn’t it funny how some people are going so far out of their way to destroy marriages they say they don’t believe actually exist.
Well, now, that's an interesting little quandary. Click through to read the entire article; it's funny and brilliant. This whole "gay marriage" thing is completely out of control; can we just, for once, let it go and let people get on with losing half their crap, no matter who they're splitting their assets with?

Note to heteros: homosexuals entering into a legally binding contract in no way diminishes the validity or meaning of your legally bind…

Memo to Democrats: THIS is How You Should Sound

"I refuse to be lectured on national security by people who are responsible for the most disastrous set of foreign policy decisions in the recent history of the United States. The other side likes to use 9/11 as a political bludgeon. Well, let's talk about 9/11.
And there's a lotmore. If someone, anyone, had spoken like this when Congress bent over and gave the administration everything they wanted, maybe we'd actually be fixing some crap around here and getting the hell out of Iraq. And bravo to Senator Obama for not taking that BS 9/11 crap from some pandering Bushie.

One Function Review of the New Indiana Jones movie.

(with apologies to anyone who actually can code)

function toViewOrNotToView (seeFilmInTheatre) {

int fanboi = 0;
int literalism = 1;
int alteredState = 0;
int mentalAcuity = 1;

//note, we can't let mentalAcuity dip below 1 to operate machinery safely

if (fanboi == 1 && alteredState ==1) {
return 1;
fanboi--;
mentalAcuity--;

}

elseif (fanboi ==0 && alteredState == 1) {
return 1;
alteredstate = 0;
mentalAcuity--;

}

elseif (fanboi == 0 && alteredState == 0 && literalism == 1) {
return 0;
alert ("How many more films must George Lucas ruin before he is stopped?");

//I know we're not subtracting from mentalAcuity
//here, but that should be covered in the viewDVDAtHome function

}
