What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo gets exercised about politics

Have handbasket, Hell here we come.

Sometimes I don't understand people. A writer tries a kickstarter for a sequel and receives a ton-load of shit for it. She responds in the posted link. (Grokked from CC Findley)

Seriously. What is wrong with people. Mitt Romney is exploring another campaign for President, I think it would be a drastic and terrible wrong step if he even gets the nomination again and that people giving to his campaign are completely out of touch, but, hey, have at, dude.

Sen. Graham is a tool. Need proof? Okay, he states he wants Congress to pass a law that would require the Obama Administration to get Congressional approval before implementing any treaty agreement with Iran. Let that sink in a moment. Congress doesn't need to pass a law, it's in the fucking Constitution. Senator Graham sits in the body that needs to approve any treaty. It's in his fucking job description, and not in one of the obscure procedural rules, but right out in the open. The man is either an idiot, or he thinks the rest of us are. Also, Jesus Haploid Christ does he need a Zoloft prescription. Of course, he's just spouting what his financiers want him to, that much has become obvious.

The men who would be President, and where they stand on global climate change. Ignorance abounds. (Grokked from Wil Wheaton)

You know how we lefties say the conservatives are mean spirited and ignorant of the actual way laws are made and enforced? Here's another example. Texas representatives, sensing they're about to lose their argument against same-sex marriage, have proposed a law that would strip the salary, benefits, and pensions of anyone in local or state government who recognizes same sex marriage and/or facilitates it. So much for personal consciences. And, knowing this doesn't have a chance of standing up to any court challenge, has a piece about how if anyone sues over the implementation of this law they automatically lose and have to pay court costs and lawyer fees for whomever they would name as defendants. Wow. Such ignorance and mean spiritedness. Basically they're saying, "if you follow the law, we're going to punish you and strip you of everything." The arrogance and ignorance demonstrated here is astounding. Yes, that will mean either all state employees will be outlaws, or they'll have their livelihood removed. That's blackmail, and this law deserves to go down in flames. If it's enacted, I believe the government of Texas should be removed for institutional stupidity.
