Well Said, Anonymous Internet Commentator

I wish a person were only intelligent enough to both have a religion if it’s important to himself and his community, but having the fucking discernment to understand that the power elite outside of his community needs to play religious distortion in order to get him and his community’s resources thieved for a completely non-religious purpose.

Religion does keep people grounded and is human heritage and has a real state when it’s not tainted by power structure. This is like so many other things, that are pure before extra-community power distorts it.

You could say “well, what if some stupid community has a religion that’s totally fucked up and a few guys are sitting around abusing everything and making a dark backwoods Hellscape of life?” Well, that goes back to the argument that a man is not capable of recognizing justice unless a supra-community, a state power structure is there to shepard communities to perceive the structure’s “religion.” At that point everything is over.

Judge Walker Overturns Prop 8

Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite sex couples are superior to same-sex couples. Because California has no interest in discriminating against gay men and lesbians, and because Proposition 8 prevents California from fulfilling its constitutional obligation to provide marriages on an equal basis, the court concludes that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional.

She also decided ‘misunderestimate’ and ‘wee-wee’d’ are valid English expressions and got angry when she was called out on her questionable use of non-words.

And Roger Ebert retorts:

Roger Ebert on Sarah Palins English

Coincidentally, does anyone else find it as funny as I do that the ‘we should only speak English’ Tea Party crowd typically can barely speak English themselves? Sarah Palin, case in point.

An Interlude To Bro Rape

I know this will come as a big letdown to the straight male browsing population: three-fourths of your fantasies are, in fact, fantasies of a fantasy. Like bi men, most bi women are, for whatever reason, not observably bi. The primacy of America’s most popular threesome, two dudes and an Xbox, is safe.

Would That Make David Stern Jefferson Davis?

“His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality. He sees LeBron as a runaway slave. This is an owner employee relationship — between business partners — and LeBron honored his contract.”
