If you plan to vote for Mitt Romney, you are putting a nail into my civil rights coffin, and I’d rather not have friends who think I deserve anything less than equal treatment under the law. Romney supports DOMA (which directly and negatively impacts me, and my federal protections and tax benefits under the law), and has noted his support for an anti-marriage equality amendment as well. Whileyou may see your vote for him as one about the economy (and we can debate who’d be better for that until the cows come home), what you INTEND by your vote really doesn’t matter. Your vote means that you are supporting someone who not only thinks I’m not equal to you, but
Jesus washed the feet of the poor. The Republican vice presidential nominee re-washed their clean pots and pans. Eager to prove he’s not a heartless monster just because his budget will throw millions of poor people off of food stamps and Medicaid, Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan paid a surprise visit last week to a Youngstown, Ohio soup kitchen run by the local St. Vincent DePaul Society. The only problem? He wasn’t invited. No matter. According to the charity’s president, Ryan “ramrodded” his way into the place so he could stage a cheap photo op. Undeterred by the fact that that no food was being served at the time, Ryan trouped photographers into the kitchen, donned an apron
From Think Progress: The CEO of a massive timeshare company sent an email about the upcoming election to his employees yesterday, threatening to fire some of them if President Obama wins re-election. David Siegel, who owns Florida-based Westgate Resorts, sent an email to all his employees yesterday to discuss the upcoming election. “The economy doesn’t currently pose a threat to your job,” Siegel wrote, noting that the company is “the most profitable [it's] ever been.” “What does threaten your job however, is another 4 years of the same Presidential administration.” He went on to say that although he “can’t tell you whom to vote for,” if Obama is re-elected, it would mean “fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less
I wanted to add a review of Kitchenaid… simply because I had one of those customer service experiences that, as a consumer, you always hope for, but never seem to get. Dealing with a company that treats you in a fair manor, and VERY WELL, seems to be the big exception, rather than the norm… I had a problem with a mixer I purchased from kitchenaid. it was a refurb of one of their pro stand mixers & I paid about $350.00 for it (new they list at $499.00) Basically it imploded, the transmission destroyed itself & it did it 2 weeks after the warranty expired (6 months on a refurb)… I was thinking this is not going to end
A Maryland lawmaker who thinks same-sex marriage will lead to the teaching of homosexuality in schools has injured four children in a drunken boating accident A homophobic Maryland lawmaker has admitted to being drunk when he accidentally crashed his boat into a boat full of children. Maryland delegate Don H. Dwyer Jr was drinking with another man on his boat on the Magothy River in Pasadena around 7pm when his boat struck a smaller vessel with five children on board. Four of the children were injured with one, a five year old girl, taken by helicopter to Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. Two adults on the boat were unharmed. The smash was so severe that Dwyer’s boat sunk in the
I love the word fuck, I love it in all its forms, shapes and flavors, I think people are overly freaked out by bad language… one of my favourites is “fucking asshole” it covers so many people doing so many bad and annoying things! So if you cant hang with the language, then get the fuck off my blog!
As many folks have heard over the last few days, Todd Akin a republitard candidate for something, in a state that is going out of its way to provide a constant and never ending supply of ignorant red-necks to the world made one of the dumbest cracker comments ever. Well at least in the last week, there are so many ground breaking stupid comments coming from the republicans, they are always breaking new ground when it comes to stupid. He basically said that women’s bodies can tell when sperm has been placed in there by rape, excuse me, legitimate rape, vs some sort of willing sexual encounter. Really Todd… did your mommy have that talk with you? He then started
We all have our pet peeves, and the use of your vs you’re is one many people have, the apostrophe either not being used, or being used incorrectly drives some people crazy. Frankly I think you may be a bit too anal for your own good. When it comes right down to it the majority of the time the context is certainly clear enough that WE GET IT!!!! So, quit being a grammar dickhead.. in reality you just come off as a superior condescending asshole, and people do not like you! No one wants to hang out with a whiner that gets pleasure out of correcting other people…. THIS IS WHY YOU NEVER GET LAID! For example: lets eat out
