Harry Reid is truly a buffoon but the controversy around his ‘negro’ remark is getting to be even more stupid than his failed predictions. Here is a little piece from Slate that shows all the craziness about different terms and taboos on how we describe black people (I still refuse to use the ‘African-American’ stupidity and will do so until forced to do otherwise).
On the gay side (pun), a few homosexual couples are challenging Proposition 8 in federal court on the grounds that “Being married and wearing a wedding ring sends a message to society“. One of the attorneys involved add that “Marriage is central to life in America. It promotes mental, physical and emotional self. It’s the building block of family, neighborhoods and community in our society.”
So basically, these people are trying to convince the courts that they are fighting for traditional marriage’s value against a crazy democratic decision voted by the racist mobs. Booya!
Finally, on the economic side it looks like our genius press just found out that there is “a future of endless oil“. From peak oil Armageddon to blissful infinite supply in a little over one year.
Oh, I almost forget: There are also people in NYC living like caveman. No kidding.
