One fucking bad day

Obama Job Approval

I've edited the Pollster model to only include live interview polls. I have major issues with Internet polls and the IVR-automated polls, so I didn't include them. Look for yourself, the IVR (mostly Rasmussen Reports) are off from the main trend line by 10-15 points.

VLOG 4-22-09

Sorry about the video quality, I just didn't feel like setting everything up right.

Just a short video of me being me. That is weird, crazy and random.

I'm done, Its over

I wanted to write a blog post, but I couldn't. So I just turned the camera on and ranted and got most of it out of my system. Yeah. It's me, socially unedited.

And to make me laugh, I share with you Rachel Maddow, Anna Marie Cox & right-wing teabagging.

Gay Marriage

So, I want to talk about gay marriage, but I am at a loss for words.

I will share this with you, and then try and gather my thoughts. No doubt I am bias in my opinion on same-sex marriage, but I can't get over the facts. The facts of history.

But then today. I chose to make a stand on Facebook. Afterwards, I chose not to engage them. It is not my job to teach every person that we are just like them. But I wanted to post it because it has been a while since I've had Leviticus thrown in my face.

And honestly, I have no problem not blacking out the names. And I don't have photoshop, so I couldn't if I wanted to.

(EDIT: 4:15 p.m. April 8, 2009 | picture edited to remove person's name and picture at request of said person)

First, my main problem is making anybody's religious beliefs into state and federal law. Second, I love being told you are not judging me, but then tell me it is a sin just like murder. And really, the final icing on the cake was having Leviticus thrown in my face.

Can we start with keeping me from being married because of religious reasons. So whether or not being gay is a sin, that means nothing when it comes to legal rights.

Second, you want to put rights of a minority group up to popular vote? How about we vote on whether Christians have the freedom of speech, or vote to keep children of non-Anglo heritage out of the public school system?

And you want to talk about Leviticus, lets talk about eating shrimp, working on the Sabbath, touching the skin of a dead pig, and selling your child into slavery. Cus I would like to see why we can pick and choose things to ignore. And how did gay get on that list?

I almost didn't even write this. I mean, I am really fucking pissed right now, but I know it is not going to get me anywhere. But I needed to talk about it. I needed to share this.

We can't forgot this war is far from over. We must be willing to fight until our last moments, because they will be.

Finally, I want to share a bit of West Wing. Take it away Mr. President...
