Don't Get Me Wrong, I Still Think Lesbians Are Hot... -

Andrew Sullivan has really been pissing me off lately. His stand on gay marriage rights isn't very well thought out.

"[The amendment] robs us of something no one in this country should be robbed of - equality..."

This whole thing is just ridiculous. Marriage is a bond between a man and a woman. Marriage is what it is, nothing else. Now that that fact is established, to say marriage as it is now is inequal is preposterous. Gay men are completely equaly free to be married-- married to women. Lesbians are completely equaly free to be married-- to men. The fact that a gay man chooses his lifestyle (and I believe that is is a chosen lifestyle) means that he is choosing to not get married to a woman. Tradition should not succumb to some demented preference. How hard is this to understand?

Alot of people are saying "gays and lesbians are losing their rights", or "they're taking away their rights". That's horseshit!!! Everyone has the right to marry into the opposite sex!! Nobody has the right to marry a member of the same sex.

A spoon is a spoon and a fork is a fork. Simple as that.

From An Email -

A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. She
considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat, but her father was
a staunch Republican.

One day she was challenging her father on his beliefs and his opposition to high taxes and welfare programs. He stopped her and asked how she was doing in school. She answered that she had a 4.0 GPA, but it was really tough. She had to study all the time and never had time to go out and party. She didn't have time for a boyfriend and didn't really have many college friends because of spending all her time studying. On top of that, the part-time job her father insisted she keep left absolutely no time for anything else.

He asked, "How is your friend Mary doing?"

She replied that Mary was barely getting by. She had a 2.0 GPA, never studied, but was very popular on campus, didn't have a job, and went to all the parties. She was always complaining about not having any money, but didn't want to work. Why, she often didn't show up for classes because she was hung over.

Dad then asked his daughter why she didn't go to the Dean's office and request that 1.0 be taken off her 4.0 and given it to her friend who only had a 2.0. That way they would both have a respectable 3.0 GPA. Then she could also give her friend half the money she'd earned from her job so that her friend would no longer be broke.

The daughter angrily fired back, "That wouldn't be fair. I worked really hard for my grades and money, and Mary just loafs. Why should her laziness and irresponsibility be rewarded with half of what I've worked for?"

The father slowly smiled and said, ”Welcome to the Republican Party."

Elvis Kerry? -

I wish I were more proficient with photoshop so I could chop up this picture to make him look like Elvis.

On a similar note, doesn't John Kerry look alot like Treebeard?
 
A Bottle In Front Of Me Is Better Than A Frontal Lobotomy -

Today I go in to get my head checked out.

I've got these weird bumps near my right temple that manifested about 9 months ago. I first noticed them after I got hit on the top of my head with a paintball flying at about 300 feet per second. Doc says that the incident isn't related to the bumps and that they are just cysts. Well, I have an appointment this morning to get them checked out/removed.

I'm curious to see what they'll do to me. Will I be put under or will they give me a local? I don't even know if they can anesthetize my head. I know you're all concerned, so I'll post an update later today (unless I'm dead or something).

**Update**

Well, doc #2 says that they're not cysts. He told me this after touching them and pressing on parts of my head. Apparantly he's never seen anything like this befoe because he needed to consult some of his fellow doctors about it. The consensus is that I injured a vein when I got shmacked on the noggin (to use the technical terms) and it split the inner layer of the vein longitudally and it is slowly ripping in a zipper-like fashion down the vein. This explains the small bulges and the pronounced vein across my right temple.

My head is all fucked up. I need a beer.

I'm scheduled for some xrays this afternoon. More to come...

Hoodie-Hoo -

Today, according to Andrew's calendar book, is Northern Hemisphere Hoodie-Hoo Day. Apparantly, it means that at high noon everyone is supposed to yell "Hoodie-Hoo" to chase away winter. So I ask everyone to join me in yelling "Hoodie-Hoo" today. Just make sure everyone around you knows about it or you might get some strange looks.

I'm a frickin' retard.

Hitler: A Lefty -

I've been in agreement with this idea for some time now. Here's a good read on the subject:

Hitler was a Leftist Socialist
 
Candidate For Change -

American Beacon got it right:

John Kerry: candidate for change

Voted for No Child Left Behind: now opposes it
Voted for the PATRIOT Act: now opposes it
Voted for war in Iraq: now opposes it
Voted against Operation Desert Storm in 1991: now supports it
"Opposes special interests": accepted more lobbyist money than ANY OTHER senator in the last 15 years

If we want a weathervane president, he's our man.

He's got a good economic plan though: just marry a rich heiress - TWICE!

Ninja Rule!! -

I so want to be a ninja!
 
I'll Drink Alot to Kill My Lefty Brain -

I got this from here via here, via yet Rocket Jones.

Your Brain Usage Profile
Auditory : 31%
Visual : 68%
Left : 63%
Right : 36%

Ryan, you are somewhat left-hemisphere dominant and show a preference for visual learning, although not extreme in either characteristic. You probably tend to do most things in moderation, but not always.

Your left-hemisphere dominance implies that your learning style is organized and structured, detail oriented and logical. Your visual preference, though, has you seeking stimulation and multiple data. Such an outlook can overwhelm structure and logic and create an almost continuous state of uncertainty and agitation. You may well suffer a feeling of continually trying to "catch up" with yourself.

Your tendency to be organized and logical and attend to details is reasonably well-established which should afford you success regardless of your chosen field of endeavor. You can "size up" situations and take in information rapidly. However, you must then subject that data to being classified and organized which causes you to "lose touch" with the immediacy of the problem.

Your logical and methodical nature hamper you in this regard though in the long run it may work to your advantage since you "learn from experience" and can go through the process more rapidly on subsequent occasions.

You remain predominantly functional in your orientation and practical. Abstraction and theory are secondary to application. In keeping with this, you focus on details until they manifest themselves in a unique pattern and only then work with the "larger whole."

With regards to your career choices, you have a mentality that would be good as a scientist, coach, athlete, design consultant, or an engineering technician. You can "see where you want to go" and even be able to "tell yourself," but find that you are "fighting yourself" at the darndest times.


Stupid brain.

Kerry, Kerry, Kerry -

As if my tirade on John Kerry the other day wasn't enough...

This is why Howard Dean won't withdraw from the race!

Bill? Is that you?

If this pans out to be true, I don't feel he should be disqualified as a candidate because of it solely, but because of the complete package of hipocracy and incredibility he's been offering. Cripes, he's not even telling the truth about his obvious plastic surgery.

Mor on Kerry -

The fact that John Kerry is gaining in popularity doesn't really astound me. The Democrats need to pick a candidate, after all. It should not be surprising to anyone that they would pick the one with, arguably, the least credibility. He does have some good qualities, though; he's tall... ...he has admitted to have smoked marijuana... ...umm, that's all I got.

I'd like to re-post this piece I found on Right Wing News:

Since we haven't found WMD in Iraq, a lot of the anti-war/anti-Bush crowd is saying that the Bush administration lied about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. Well, if they're going to claim that the Bush administration lied, then there sure are a lot of other people, including quite a few prominent Democrats, who have told the same "lies" since the inspectors pulled out of Iraq in 1998. Here are just a few examples that prove that the Bush administration didn't lie about weapons of mass destruction...

"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." -- From a letter signed by Joe Lieberman, Dianne Feinstein, Barbara A. Milulski, Tom Daschle, & John Kerry among others on October 9, 1998 ...

"I will be voting to give the president of the United States the authority to use force - if necessary - to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security." -- John F. Kerry, Oct 2002

"The threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real, but as I said, it is not new. It has been with us since the end of that war, and particularly in the last 4 years we know after Operation Desert Fox failed to force him to reaccept them, that he has continued to build those weapons. He has had a free hand for 4 years to reconstitute these weapons, allowing the world, during the interval, to lose the focus we had on weapons of mass destruction and the issue of proliferation." -- John Kerry, October 9, 2002

"(W)e need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime. We all know the litany of his offenses. He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation. ...And now he is miscalculating America’s response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction. That is why the world, through the United Nations Security Council, has spoken with one voice, demanding that Iraq disclose its weapons programs and disarm. So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real, but it is not new. It has been with us since the end of the Persian Gulf War." -- John Kerry, Jan 23, 2003


Now, here are some John Kerry quotes from OnTheIssues.org:

"I can pledge this to the American people: I will never conduct a war or start a war because we want to; the United States of America should only go to war because we have to."

Guess what. We had to.

"There was a right way to hold Saddam Hussein accountable and there was a wrong way. The right way was what the president promised, to go to the UN, to respect the building of an international coalition in truth, to exhaust the remedies of inspections and literally to only go to war as a last result."

Guess what. That's what we did. And when that didn't work, we went to war.

"Look, this administration misled the American people, abused the power that they were given, and has run an ineffective war on terror."

Misled? Didn't you just say that... umm... Iraq needed to be rid of their weapons and weapons programs?? And the war on terror is hardly ineffective. How many terrorist strikes have occurred here since the war started?

"Saddam Hussein was way down the list, with respect to the targets, even on the Pentagon's own list of targets. And what they did was supplant Iraq for the real war on terror, which is Osama bin Laden, Al Qaeda, and terror across the world."

Apparantly he wasn't all that far down on your list just two years ago. I don't know on what planet Kerry has been living, but Al Qaeda has been decimated and terror across the wolrd is declining.

• Voted YES on authorizing use of military force against Iraq. (Oct 2002)
• Voted YES on authorizing air strikes in Kosovo. (Mar 1999)
• Disarm Saddam, but war should be a last resort. (May 2003)
• Preferred diplomacy, but supported invading Iraq. (May 2003)
• Vote for war was needed to push Saddam on inspectors. (Sep 2003)


Anyone else notice any inconsistencies?

A Couple of Things... -

-My friend Steck and I went to a couple of trendy nightclubs downtown Saturday night and we had a very good time. Unfortunately, I forgot my credit card at one of the clubs and later that night, I lost my frickin' wallet and cell phone.

-John Kerry is a hypocritical ego-maniac flake!

-I stopped working out again last week. What will it take to get me motivated enough to start up again?

-New England won. So far, I'm 2-0 for my picks.

-The Wisconsin Primary is next week. Apparantly, Dean says he will still run after the primary. He's living in his own world, folks.

Speaking of which--this is great. It's from Scrappleface:

Dean to Stay in Race Until Ringing in Head Stops
(2004-02-09) -- Former Democrat presidential frontrunner Howard Dean today reversed his previous pledge to drop out of the race if he loses the Wisconsin primary. He now promises to stay in "until this ringing in my head stops."

"Even if I don't win Wisconsin or any other state, I will continue to run," Mr. Dean told a small crowd of supporters in Sheboygan. "If I don't get the nomination, I will run as an independent. And if I lose the general election, I will immediately announce my 2008 campaign and keep running. I will never stop running for president. This is my profession -- my calling. The ringing in my head beckons me to strive inexorably onward. Can you hear the ringing? Can you hear it?"

The crowd erupted in applause and shouts of "Yes, we hear it. Run Howard, run!"

When It Rains, It Pours -

I've been feverishly dating many many women for the past few months. {Feverishly dating? That... ...needs to be changed}

I've been dating like a madman for the past few months. {Better, but... ...aw fuck it.}

Me date'um many women for many moons. I'm coming off of a dry spell of *sigh* a year or so. That's right - a gorgeous guy like me sans-date for one whole year. In fact, I think it was longer than a year. Then, one day I woke up and I'm friggin' Superfly. I can hardly believe it myself. It gets hard keeping track of all the women I'm dating, and I don't want to write down names or anything. Now, I know I've been posting about my dating life, and I know that that could come around to bite me in the ass. So, I will, henceforth, be a bit more vague with my lovelife posts.

There's just too many women in my life right now. I know, I know - it's a good problem to have, but there is another problem with all of this. I can't seem to cut any of them loose. I have a hard time telling any of them that we should stop seeing each other.

Hey, I've got an idea how to scare them off:

Scene: me picking up "A" at her house. I am wearing a full set of plate armor and a chainmail headdress, and perhaps brandishing a battle axe. I ring the doorbell, she opens the door...
Me: Good evening, wench! Is thine stomach empty and thine mouth watery? I hath prepared for you a small feast!
A: Umm... okay...
Me: Good! After thine satiation, we shall engage in mutually pleasurable intercourse, the likes of which barbarians are accustomed too!
A slams the door

Anywhoo, K and I went out Saturday and I think we may be headed down the right road.

I'd like to thank Rocket Jones for linking to my site. Hopefully I can 'rocket' up to your level someday.

Global Warming -

If anyone were to regularly visit this site (yeah right), that person would know that I loathe these nutjob environmentalist freaks. So, seeing as I haven't posted on the subject in a while, I thought I'd post a link to a great weblog I've found, and more specifically, a particular entry in said weblog concerning global warming.

He makes a few great points and I urge you to read the entry.
