Gay marriage continued

Ilana Mercer writes.
Having one's relationship blessed by the state simply does not
constitute a basic right.


Now I don't agree with much of what Ilana writes, but she hit
the nail on the head with that one sentence. Ilana's latest
column is a must read if you're interested in understanding
the issue of Gay marriage.

Bumper sticker wisdom

If the answer is the government, it must have been a really stupid question.

Diseased ranting

Not to sound like a big baby, but being sick sucks. That's why
I haven't posted much, but don't change that channel. There
will be plenty more ranting to come.

A Stern punishment

Howard Stern violated indecency standards? Get out!
I listen to Howard once in a while and I heard some
pretty raunchy stuff. That was years ago. I'm shocked
they are trying to tone him down now. He's been
doing these sort of things for a long time. I doubt
this slap on the wrist will last long. He makes them too
much money.

Nader saves the day

Well at least for Bush's campaign. So all of you Bush supporters can stop
sweating his reelection. Nader should pull enough of the angry leftist votes
to balance out any of W's base supporters who decided to stay home.

I would imagine the democrats must be freaking out right about now.
It probably sounds something like this:

"Damn it! He's gonna f**k it up for us again. What the hell is he thinking?"

But I gotta pee

Under a new policy at the Lawrence Middle School, seventh- and eighth-graders
are allowed to leave class for the bathroom a maximum of 15 times a month. As
a result, some are afraid to use up their bathroom passes too quickly and end up
with a full bladder and nowhere to go.

School officials defend the policy as a way to ensure safety, security and order.


Come on now. Who are the nitwits running this school? Is this country having
a common sense crisis? I'd like to see the staff follow the same policy. I'm sure
they'd be changing it real quick once one of them have a little accident. Safety,
security and order. Who comes up with this nonsense? The parents of these
students need to go down to the school and smack the principal in the head
a few times. Maybe that'll bring him back to reality.

Here's the rest of the story.

One more try for prop 187

"Requiring California's public agencies to obey the laws already on the
books is a very moderate approach to a very serious problem, but it's
a good first step!"Says Save Our State.


Just reading that hurts my head. I would expect public agencies to
obey laws on the books. I have to. Why should they be any different?

If you live in California please do your part to stop this madness and
go to the Save Our State website and fill out the petition.

The Parched Desert

Stories like this make me wanna choke the volunteers. I know they mean
well, but they are not helping us secure our borders. They think that
putting water in the middle of the desert doesn't attract illegal immigrants,
but it does. They wouldn't take that route otherwise. Probably because
they would die trying. See, that's the beauty of the desert. It's a natural
means of securing our borders. So get your water out of the damn desert
and stop screwing things up.

Roe vs. Wade do over?

The fact that this is happening should speak volumes about the
foundation of the Pro-Choice movement.

Euphemisms

Women's Health Organization. That name bothers me. It's what most
abortion clinics in my area are called. Why don't they just be honest
about their main service? It's abortion.

They could name it something like this.

Baby Butchers Inc.
Womb to tomb in less than an hour.

A little morbid, but accurate.

Morning After OTC

What can the FDA be thinking by considering making the morning
after pill over the counter. This pill's only purpose is to kill. So
I ask, what good could come from making this drug OTC? None.
Teens would have unlimited access to it without a physician's
oversight and could land them in the hospital with some serious
problems. It's a bad, very bad idea.

Woo Hoo

I've been blogrolled by Vox Day. How cool is that?
Thanx for the link bro. Now maybe someone will
read the crap I call writing.

An Internal Affair

I wouldn't bet on John F***ing Kerry being out of the race. He is
running for the Democratic nomination, ya know. Democrats don't
seem to see having an affair with an intern as being a problem. If
that is what happened, we'll see. It doesn't matter what Mr. Kerry
does, he'll still get their votes. Most people in the Democratic party
hate President Bush and that is their sole reason for voting for Kerry.
Maybe the President will get his act together or better yet, we all vote
for a third party candidate. I know I'm seriously considering the
Constitution or the Libertarian party. I'll have to do more research.

French Military Victory

Is there such a thing?

Nice guys do finish last

Vox Day posted on this subject and I couldn't have said it
any better. My wife has a friend that fit Vox's description
perfectly. My wife wonders how I can predict her every
move. It seems she's typical of women with that mindset.
Though she is fun to sit back and watch, like a live soap
opera.

The Guantanamo Inn

Maybe this will shut up the people complaining about how we treat
detained combatants, but I doubt it. The truth has no effect on
these people.

The Effects of Gay Marriage

In Rebecca Hagelin's latest column, she spells out the possible effects
of gay marriage. I don't have anything against gay people hooking up
for the long term, but if the things she states actually happen, it will
really screw up how our society works.

There are other ways to accomplish their stated goals outside of
marriage that already exist, but that's not what their agenda
is really about.

Let's rid ourselves of scum

Barbara Simpson has got it right and since when is lethal injection
cruel and unusual punishment. I don't think it's cruel enough, considering
what some of these monsters did.

Sounds of Spring

There is no sound as sweet as the sound of a sportbike ripping
through each gear. I heard a few this weekend. :) Spring is
coming. I can't wait to throw a leg over mine.

Centrist

I have a problem with Centrist. They just rub me the wrong way. Maybe it's
their lack of a firm stance on most issues. Or it could just be me, I am a
little dense. Ya know, they could be the enlightened few, but I doubt it.

I have a little saying pertaining to Centrist.

If you stand in the middle of the road long enough, you're bound to be
run over.

I'll be one of the first to swerve and hit ya.

Easing a Baby's Pain

"We must do everything possible to relieve the terror and suffering of children as they are aborted."
This was said by Virginia Republican Dick Black.

Let's look at this for a second. We're supposed to relieve the terror and suffering of children as
they have their bodies ripped apart and then disposed of. I don't know. Maybe it's just me, but it
would seem the best way to do everything possible to relieve their suffering would be to not abort
them at all. I know, I know. This seems to simple of an answer, but maybe it is just that simple.
Some of the best solutions are.

Planned Parenthood

Life is a journey that is hard for one to predict.
If would you have asked me where I would be ten years from now a decade ago,
I would have never predicted this. By this, I’m referring to the chance to plan for
parenthood. Deciding whether to have children or not, is not something I thought
I would be faced with. Having kids is something I assumed would just happen…by
accident, like many parents. Sometimes I think some things shouldn’t be planned
for, well maybe it’s just me. It’s a huge decision. Are women the only ones that
have a biological clock? I sure could use one. Not that I don’t want children, it would
just make adjusting easier if I had an overwhelming urge to have one. Heck, I just
figured out how to take care of myself.

If someone were to ask me for advice on having children, I
would say this:

You can never be totally ready for kids. You just need to accept the fact
(if you decide to have any) that your life is gonna change. In a good way
though. No amount of preparation is going to help you. When your baby is born,
just love him and take care of him. That’s all he’ll need. The rest he’ll teach you.
Sure you’ll show him some stuff eventually, but first, you must be broken-in.
Babies seem to be pretty good at doing that.

Well, I suppose I’m finished. I hope you didn’t mind reading
all of this. Maybe, just maybe, this might have helped someone
to take the plunge and enjoy parenthood. It would be nice if
this helped someone other than me.

What is marriage?

I have to agree with the President on this one. Marriage is a sacred institution between a man and
a woman. But why bother with a constitutional amendment? Its not like the courts are following
the law anyhow. They are more interested in writing law. Which is how we got into this debate
in the first place. Something has to done about the courts rewriting laws to accommodate a
small number of people.

Winter and SUVs

SUVs have been getting a great deal of bad press lately, with all the snow we've
been getting. People are saying SUVs actually make bad weather more
dangerous. Their reasoning? They see more SUVs in ditches than any other
type of vehicle in bad weather conditions. Let me start by saying they are
pretty much the only thing on the road when it's snowing. Another reason
is that people don't know how to drive the things.

All 4wd vehicles handle differently than 2wd when driving in low traction
conditions. You have to pay attention to what both ends of the vehicle are
doing. When you do lose traction they tend to understeer and oversteer
(plowing and fishtailing) at the same time. This makes regaining control tricky.
Drivers are under the false impression that these trucks are unstoppable.
Trust me, these trucks can be stopped and often are, at the expense of
the owner.

I think what can be deceiving is that when you first hit the gas pedal,
it just goes. Like a rocket. Well, at least in the snow it seems that way.
But when it comes time to stop or turn, they're not much different
than any other car. I think this tends to cause most of the problems.

May you all drive safely this winter season.
