Another semester has come and gone. Turned in my course grades today. Much happiness.
Oh, and DADT was repealed. Eight Republicans decided to stop being evil for a few minutes and voted the right way.

Who will be the Last Bigot Standing? The man who is to gay rights what George McGovern was to black civil rights? Can anyone challenge John McCain for this momentous historical (dis)honor?
It’s almost hard for me to believe that DADT got overturned, it’s been so long coming and I thought the Republican Fillibuster was going to last for an entire 2 years.
Perhaps Obama’s willingness to compromise finally got him somewhere, plenty of us would have held the line, but in this case holding the line on taxes costs of severely on social issues.
Hopefully the Dream Act gets some more serious attention now.
For me, this is an in-hindsight-I-should’ve-guessed facepalm. It happens every time there is a looming change in Congress: every Congresscritter holds out until the last possible moment in order to get the best deal they can get, then around late December-early January all 535 legislaters have a collective “oh crap, we gotta pass stuff or look like idiots” moment and tons of legislation gets passed. Its going to be ditto with START and I’m guessing a bunch of authorization bills.
Remind me in late 2012 that when Congress seems completely deadlocked on everything, not to worry: its political gamesmanship.
No it wasn’t a good day. Sodom has prevailed for now, until it gets destroyed. Now people of the same gender who decide to get it on with each other can now do it most anywhere. Soldiers better pay attention and better buy you some soap on a rope.
This is horrible. Why is America going to hell in a handbasket? Why are we allowing evil to prevail? People are weak. It is time for the church to get serious and start back combating evil. It is means performing an exorcism on congress, then let’s do it. If that’s what it takes to cast evil out of this nation and get these freaks out of power.
Homosexuality is a sin. Period. No arguments. End of story. If you say otherwise, then shame on your denial.
It’s time that we on the right broke away and formed our own country. It is time to get away from these sodomite nuts. Then again, we could just send them all home to California and keep the rest of the country for ourself.
Hank Williams Jr. was right. We would be better off if the South would have won.
I know some sodomite brain slave on here will mention the non-existant word homophobic to me, but that’s ok. I can accept being called words that don’t exist. I just hope they can accept their desire to further the kingdom of satan.
Don’t ask don’t tell just go turned into Please, ask me, and I’ll show you. Filthy animals. I thought the military had better standards. Farah was right boycott the fascists on the left. Boycott the secular depressives.
From PZ’s dungeon on Piltdown man:
Utterly obtuse toad who just kept coming back with weasely arguments for Catholicism, without ever addressing anyone’s arguments with substance.
Period. No arguments. End of story. If you say otherwise, then shame on your denial.
If you think MY denial is bad, you should take at look at who’s censoring me.
PZ failed at a debate with a 12 year old and someone is censoring me over it.
Now, THAT is denial!
