Today is voting day! Please make a few minutes to go out and vote!

I don't really think it's up to me to TELL you how to vote, but please remember to vote with your brain and not your bible. (you know this)

Marriage is about love, not a sexual preference. (like I need to tell you guys...)

And the clever wording of proposition 2 actually outlaws all marriage.

</soap box>

Some bad news, chilluns. You know that whole "all marriage will be outlawed" bullshit we were hoping would nullify this thing? I found out that it's just that: bullshit.

Texas puts a lot of faith in a thing called "legislative intent." This means that, whenever possible, the courts try to figure out what the legislature meant to say when it passed a vaguely worded or potentially miscontrueable (word?) bill. This sounds like a great idea but what it really means is sloppy legalese and slipshod drafting. But that's neither here nor there. Point is, Texas does not "legislate from the bench," so to speak, because political mucky-mucks put a lot of pressure on the courts about the practice. So the douchebags can sit smugly, confident that their shaky command of grammar and bad elementary school spelling scores will not preclude them from foisting equally half-assed opinions and agendas on the public.

I know this because I work for the OAG, the law firm for the state of Texas, and my boss of bosses Greg Abbott made it very clear in a recent memo that the Office will do everything in its power to make sure that "traditional marriage" will be enforced as the intent of the legislature.

So the few asshats out there who are getting cocky that Prop 2 will not hold up in court because the drafter didn't know how to form a coherent sentence, rational as that may seem: shut up and vote.

I work for a crippled bigot. I hate my job.

And if you're in Travis County (which I'm not):

http://www.traviscountybonds.org/

The Travis County parks system could use a yes vote on Bond Proposition No. 2. The highlight is funds to preserve Reimers Ranch near Hamilton Pool in southwest Travis County, on land currently owned by the Reimers family. There are also funds for other acquisitions and park infrastructure work, but Reimers Ranch is the important one since if this bond doesn't pass the area will be sold to developers instead. The whole Hamilton Pool park was actually acquired from the Reimers family as well, back in '85.

Erin is right, unfortunately. There's the whole issue of the letter of the law versus the spirit of the law. Like with the Second Ammendment:

"A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

Really, where does it say anything about handguns? Or for that matter, firearms of any sort? Personally, I think it just means that the government isn't allowed to go around chopping off people's arms. But I'm no attorney.

;)

I didn't really want to influence anyone's vote. Just feelin' ranty, that's all. Not that you voted anyway. I know better than to waste my politicking time on you. :roll:

Of course I dont vote. Go ahead, tell me I have no right to complain about anything. Then I will tell you that I only complain about liberal douche bags telling me non-stop how to vote.

Like I said, I know better than to waste time politickin' on you. Note how nowhere in my post did I say, "Cal, you ought to pay attention to this." or "Calvin R. McWilliams, this one is for you!"

In fact, you can directly ignore anything I say on the topic of politics because I know you don't feel me. I just wanted to remind everyone to get out there because it's real easy to wake up and go through your day and not realize you meant to go out and vote until it's 6:55 PM and the polls are about to close, and some people do care.
No need to call names, sweetie. You're the one being kinda shitty at the moment.

I called no names. You're not a liberal douche-bag or any kind of douche bag as far as I am concerned. Of course I do remember a trip from Houston when you punched the shit out of me for yelling, "COMMUNIST FUCKTARD!!!" at a person with liberal (Ralph Nader, et al) stickers on his car. That action spoke louder (though not by much) than your words.

Aw, Cal, I just like having excuses to hit you. You should know that by now. ;)

Hey, Calvin, at least she just punched you instead of kicking you in the nuts...
I'm not being mean to Cal, just referring to Lindsay's soccer like abilities , which some can testify to...
James was telling a friend of ours, "If you didn't vote, you can't bitch," and I just went, "Oh, bullshit, honey, of course he can!" (try telling a queen they can't!)
