Fruits and nuts

Many things I don't understand in this world. Failed algebra a couple times. No handyman skills, can't speak french. Still the notion of gay republicanism is the most foreign thing imaginableable. Log Cabin, GOProud, is this mere self hating or just another example of the stockholm syndrome in action? Why would you link up with the people who want to deny you your most basic rights?

Today GOProud, a gay republican group, endorsed former Governor Tommy Thompson over lesbian candidate Tammy Baldwin for the Wisconsin Senate seat. Baldwin is a seven term incumbent and would become the first openly gay United States Senator.

Thompson on the other hand, supports DOMA, is opposed to same sex marriage and wants employers to have the right to fire their employees merely because they are gay.




Some people deserve what they get, I guess.

 I was reading the New York Times this morning and they ran pictures of the 2048 United States soldiers killed in Afghanistan, many lately by our ally's soldiers and policemen. Our eleventh year there, corrupt Karzai government and all. Obama was getting us out of the war, remember? Before he got all butch...

I was talking to a Sunni Afghan Pashtun that I met in Santa Fe about the phenomenon recently and he said that when an afghani loses face, he doesn't care who he kills or what happens to him. He said it with a touch of pride. And my thought was, then save yourselves, you bastard. If you don't want a civil society, spill your own blood and I don't care what happens to you. You and your country are not worth american blood. Right your own ship.

The choices in the middle east are all so bad these days. You either support Hezbollah allied Shia or Al Qeada, Saudi allied Sunni. There are no good guys anywhere. Popular movements overthrow monarchies and dictatorships, then bring back fundamentalist wahabists and salafists. Total cesspool.

Texas judge Tom Head wants the deputies to be ready for civil war in case Obama gets re-elected.
“I’m thinking worst case scenario now,” Head said during an appearance on FOX 34 in Lubbock. “Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war, maybe. And we’re not talking just a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.”
The judge spun the elaborate conspiracy theory while calling for a 1.7 cent hike per $100 on property taxes in Lubbock County, a measure being considered by the commission there. He said he feared Obama would hand over sovereignty of the United States to the United Nations and the unrest would naturally follow.
