Gay Marriage

After 18 years of being together, the state has finally seen fit to give us "permission" to marry. We are thrilled and encourage all our friends and family to vote NO on Proposition 8 in November so other couples in California can enjoy the experience of equality.

Yankee Stadium

As much as I've hated the Yankees all of my life, I lament the last days of Yankee Stadium.  It's a shame and I hope the Dodgers don't take the same path.

No Deal

Consensus has been reached among most progressives.  The deal to bailout wall street banks, as it stands now, should not pass.  It doesn't address the core issues, is a bandaid and helps only corporations that gambled but not individuals. Good (barely and temporarily) for corporate America, bad for individual America.

No deal.

I Love The Internets Part 7,896

Eddie Murphy's Giant Head.

The Banking Mess Brought On By Greed

As usual, Atrios has the best and most concise summary of what the hell went wrong:


Through this crisis, there's this underlying narrative that something can be done, that there's just a wee liquidity problem. But underlying all of this is the fact that banks made a bunch of stupid loans which aren't being repaid. A bunch of people made highly leveraged investments in securities backed by those loans. A bunch of other people sold insurance on those securities and related debt.

Lots of money is being lost and there isn't any way to fix that.

It's not quite money in the mattress time, but it's not that far away. Next up: AIG, WaMu and who knows what else.

Get Out The Vote

If you haven't registered to vote yet, it's not too late.  And, this may be the most important election in almost 150 years.  It's quick, it's easy, it's your obligation as a citizen.  Register to Vote...and then VOTE!

You've probably seen this already, but you haven't yet, here's another chance...it's brilliant.

9/11

Remembering those who lost their lives and those who lost their loved ones.  Wishing that our country hadn't lost thousands more lives and spent hundreds of billions of dollars on needless, ego-fueled, oil-mad wars over the seven years since.  It's all senseless and criminal.

Reason #8,754 Why I Love The Internets

Lipstick on a pig...for sale.

Lipstick on a Pig

As Obama wisely noted, you can put lipstick on a pig and it's still a pig.  Or, of course, one of my favorite sayings is that you can polish a turd, but it's still a turd.  Frankly, if these were my two choices and I was McCain, I would go for the pig.  Either way, I'm voting for Obama.
