I was getting grief at work that I didn’t feel was justified. It was series of compounding unfortunate events that caused some things to slip through the cracks. Instead of bringing other people into it, I just took the blame. I mean it would be a waste of time to try and explain why something went as bad as it did and whose hands all touched it. The problem is solved and I doubt that it’s going to come up again.
So North Korea conducted a nuclear test and fired off another rocket. Standard reaction from the UN: “Bad North Korea. Bad. Don’t do it again or else…” If I’m rolling my eyes at the oh so magnificent UN, you can imagine how much the North Koreans give a crap.
Seriously, why are we paying so much money to that nearly worthless organization? In comparison to what it actually does right, we would probably get more for our money by giving it to the Red Cross.
The California Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8 – the ban on gay marriage. Although, they did rule that couples that got married, while it was legal to do so, will stay married. I would think that this would create and awkward burden on those couples. Are they now going to have to carry a copy of the their wedding certificates to prove that that they have a right to certain state benefits while other same-sex couples can’t? Who’d like to be the clerks on the receiving end of that? Could the court be leaving a window open? I mean if a certain group is entitled to privileges and another is not but they aren’t different from each other, doesn’t that make an argument as a violation of the Equal Protection Clause? BTW, I still haven’t gotten an adequate answer as to why there isn’t a high profile challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act. Unlike most other people, I do see gay marriage as a federal issue and I believe that DOMA is a flagrant violation of the Full Faith and Credit Clause.
The message from the Obama administration on this: [crickets chirping]
To all you homos that voted for him: How does it feel to be run over by a bus?
***President Obama made his nomination for the Supreme Court. Liberal Judge Sonia Sotamayor from the US Court of Appeals 2nd Circuit. Oh Joy! Now how can you lay a glove on a nominee who is a woman and a latina? As soon as you do you’re going to be labeled a sexist or a racist never mind that you don’t approve of her because of her judicial philosophy and record. The Republicans don’t have the balls to put up more than a token resistance. Not that it really matters if she gets on the court anyways. Her elevation wouldn’t be expected to change the balance of power of court as she would be a liberal replacing another liberal. Still you never know… It might be George Bush under there. We haven’t seen him around for a while.
And here’s another case why I believe people should be sterilized until they are proven fit to procreate:
A woman in Melvindale, MI stabbed and killed her father…over a dinner roll.
***Well, it’s storming and I better log off before the power goes out. I love thunder storms. Y’all take care there.
