Yep, you heard it right: WBC versus Slayer fans. Who, of course, have vowed to rebuff the WBC. With, shall we say, great enthusiasm and vigor. . . .
There's even an effort to get Slayer to do a concert on-site, facing down the Phelps' Phelchers . . . (look it up. . .)
So, there remains but one task: to taunt the vegetables-that-walk-like-men from Westboro, before the Slayer fans do a re-enactment of the Who Concert. With spiked boots. . .
Perhaps you've noticed the "Equality NOW!" campaign that's been all over the web, supporting same-sex marriage.
Well, there are some people in New York, who are against traditional marriage. Or, should I say, a PARTICULAR traditional marriage.
Meet Hava Samuels and Paul Forziano. . . . .
married in April. . . but they're not being allowed to live together as husband and wife. You see, they live in group homes, because they're mentally disabled. And neither of their group homes support, or apparently even APPROVE of their marriage. Because they've been forced to file suit for the "right" to live as man and wife. They can work. They can VOTE. But, fairly obviously, at least some people don't like the idea of "retarded" citizens doing the nasty, and perhaps even have kids. (Hint: not all mental disability is genetic. I have a relative who drowned, and was recovered. But he suffered brain damage from too long without oxygen. Sweet, loving guy, even has a girlfriend. He's not a rocket scientist, but he's got exactly the same rights as the rest of us. And is positively AMAZING with gardens and plants. . .)
Here's to hoping that Love finds a way. . . . .past teh burning stoopid.
******This one kind of toggled my boggle threshold: Coca-cola is launching an anti-obesity campaign. What the ????? The company that has made billions and billions of dollars for over a century, selling fizzy flavored sugar water. What ever drove them to do something like this ?? Although, I'm sure it was some do-gooder politician like Nanny Bloomberg, who likes to get his tyranny on with little stuff first. He, and his ilk, have to work themselves up to the big stuff. . .
And, last for tonight. . . submitted without comment. . .
Yep. LITERALLY, teh Burning Stoopid. . .
