I had to share the agony of this. You know misery loves company. If you don't know who this is, thank your lucky stars. I now need to buy stock in brain bleach after sharing this. >:)

SCOTUS

It's been an epic couple of days for equal rights in the United States.

First, the Supreme Court struck down DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act, making it possible for people to marry whoever they choose, whether that be a same-sex partner or a partner of the opposite sex.

At the same time, they struck down Prop 8 in California which forbid same-sex couples from marrying. Same sex marriages could begin again in California within a couple of months. (Take that Mormons!)

Same sex couples and GLBTQ people are celebrating all across the country and they should be. They have won major victories this week.

Although these issues don't involve same sex marriage, let's not forget to celebrate the epic filibuster in Texas by Senator Wendy Davis to stop a bill that would severely limit the availability of abortion in Texas.

Also, the Senate passed a huge immigration reform bill that gives illegal immigrants a way to become citizens.

All of these are reasons to celebrate. Go buy a party hat and a noise maker. It's time to party!

Two totally unrelated macros I came across on Facebook that made me laugh.

Four More Years!!!

Maybe this time the Republicans will let President Obama get somethings done without acting like children throwing a tantrum.

Obama/Biden Win 2012

The Stanley Steemer guys got here about 11:00. I was wound right up because I hadn't had any sleep, plus I hate having strangers in my home messing with my belongings. I know that it had to be done, but my anxiety level on a scale of 1-10 was about a 22. I took two of my anti-anxiety pills while I was waiting for them to get here. They were only here for about an hour and a half, thank the gods. I just hate the idea of this type of thing because I just know they are looking at the mess and judging me for being a pig. I'm sure they've seen worse, but that does not make me feel any better about them invading my home and my privacy.

After they left, I ate lunch, then dragged the stuff back out of my bedroom that I had put in there to get it out of their way in the living room and the office. Finally I could get some sleep. I slept for about six hours. I had set the clock for 7pm and woke up at 6:58.

I got up and did some writing for a while. Then, as expected, I got a phone call at 8:30 from the Human Rights Commission. At first it was an automated message from Cyndi Lauper about the importance of this election. Then I was hooked into the conference call. It lasted about 40 minutes. It was about the importance of this election to the LGBT community.

I just finished supper and now I'm hanging out trying to destress. The cats were shut in the bedroom while the guys were here. They are, of course, out of captivity now and not sure what to make of the new smells. Poor things are as traumatized as I am.

I try not to get political, since I know it's a touchy subject. But I really cannot help myself this time.

Mitt Romney's wife was flying to Santa Monica on Friday when the plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Denver because of an electrical malfunction that apparently involved a fire. Mitt's response? (bolding is mine)

“I appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don’t think she knows just how worried some of us were,” Romney said. “When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she’s safe and sound.”

Well, ya know, Mittens, OXYGEN FEEDS FIRE! That may be the reason those damn windows won't open. You would expect someone who attended both Stanford and Harvard to know this. Jeez, dude, if you stick your foot any farther in your mouth, you're going to be able to kick yourself in the ass from the inside.
