An open message to Mr. Weiner

Congressman Weiner:

I am dismayed by your decision to step down from congress. You sir are the antidote to the Republican idiocy. I will really miss you calling them out on their ludicrous behavior.

Perhaps you should reconsider. After all you have colleagues in the House that have committed sins of far more gravity than what you have done. For example, some are/were clients of local Madams a euphemism for a female pimp. E.g. Sentator David Vitter. Some have cheated on their sick wives, E.g. Newt Gingrich, John Edwards and the list goes on.

It didn’t end their political careers. And your sexual proclivities shouldn’t end yours either.

Here’s to hoping you will run for mayor of NYC and that you don’t leave politics. You’re far too smart than to do that.

Good Luck to all my LGBT Brothers and Sisters in New York

It’s looking increasingly as though New York is going to get marriage equality. So now pretty much ALL of the northeast with the exception of Rhode Island and Maine will have full equality.

Buona Fortuna to my brothers and sisters in the fight in New York. And who knows, maybe at some point I’ll be in the city and be able to cheer with you. In fact I’ll be there for the Gay Pride celebration. Look forward to meeting some of you active in the fight.

A pleasure forgotten

So here I am, fully reclined and I’ve got the set of Subjekt cans on my head.

I’ve got Pandora up in another tab and it’s flowing FINE right now. I had forgotten what a half decent set of cans sounded like with some classic and even new music.

For example, thus far it’s spooled through Funkadelic’s “Electric Spanking of War Babies”, Marvin Gaye’s “I Heard it Through The Grape Vine”, John Legend’s “This Time”, and right now it’s Curtis Mayfield with “New World Order”.

Just kicking my head back, my eyes covered and just let the music flow through me, from my ears down to my toes. I love it. I did a quick tally and I’ve got music playing into my head at least 8 to 9 hours a day.

And I’ll close this post out with George Duke’s “Chillin'”.

The whole Ganesha Story

It’s the ultimate in ridiculous. Apparently in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho some people are upset about a Lord Ganesha sculpture being displayed in public.

I should remind those folks that Ganesha is one of the Hindu gods. But his story is interesting. A co-worker who hails from India told me about the characteristics and origin of Ganesha.

Apparently Shiva went away and his wife wanted someone to stand guard so she created a small man to stand watch while she attended her business. When Shiva go home the little man challenged him as was his job, and Shiva cut off his head.

When Shiva’s asked his wife about the man she told him that she had created him and so Shiva agreed that he would restore the mans head with the first thing he saw. Yes, he saw an elephant first.

My co-worker explains that Ganesha is most known for being the God of Success. So he ranks pretty high up in the chakra of Hindu gods.

So now don’t those Christians, and you now they HAVE to be Christians look down on a God of Success? Stupid, stupid!

Finally! A new blog rating

So for a long time this blog got a PG-13 rating.

Blog Rating R No One Under 17 admitted without parent
Blog Rating R No One Under 17 admitted without parent

Finally up to an R rating and all for mentioning the following words and their frequencies:

So if I should also add cock sucking, mother fucking two time bitch I suppose I’ll get an X rating. And as suggested, gay marriage, gay marriage, gay marriage. Marriage Equality, Marriage Equality, Marriage Equality.

Update, update, update! I just got an NC-17 rating. Am I ever proud.

Most Americans Disagree With Church Teaching On Homosexuality, Abortion


There is no surprise here. I’ve maintained all along that the politician­s and clerics in RI and in the U.S. could learn something from this. Their anti-gay screeds don’t resonate with their constituen­ts and congregati­ons.

And as to abortion, the question I like to ask those who oppose it is what they propose to do with the unwanted children should they make abortion illegal. I ask them will they PAY to take care of the child? You should hear the answers.

I walked away from organized religion a long time ago. Been a non-believ­er for over 30 years now but with a background in Roman Catholicis­m.

With that in mind I KNOW that the church is loosing people over the church’s adherence to quashing abortion and gay rights. As an example, Rhode Island used to be 62% Catholic, now it’s less than half thought that doesn’t stop Bishop Tobin from saying attendance is at an all time high. It isn’t and he’s telling an untruth.

A Lesson for NOM

This article actually came from fark.com

You can read the whole thing here but there was one sentence that stood out and that I will now expand upon.

The sentence that will be expanded on is as follows:

Few catch on because they don’t want to – people prefer knowing biblical passages that reinforce their pre-existing beliefs, a Bible professor says.

Translated in the vernacular of today and with a hat tip to the Machiavelli’s:

In other words, the ends justify the means. The folks at NOM including Maggie Gallagher, Brian Brown. I also want mention the AFA, FRC and all the local bigot groups like Mass Resistance, Florida Family Association, et al.

They are all taking the words of the Bible out of context. So beware NOMers, we know of your tricks. Don’t go spouting biblical quotations out of context and expect us to believe you. Because those of us who have read and studied the religious texts know when you are stretching the meaning, know when you are creating things out of thin air.
