Well, pbfth.

I suppose I was being stupidly optimistic in this entire endeavor (though I can't think of any better way to be), but 76% margin is rather harsh.

I gave up on "rewards in the afterlife" when I gave up on Christianity, but I really hope there's an extra-special hell for people that use the destruction of an oppressed minority's lives and hopes and dreams as fodder for their political campaigns. The demons there should have extra-spikey strap-ons and a special capsicum-based lube not available in stores.


Grumble, grumble, grouse. I'll eat yam-jerky, that'll shut me up for a while.

Well Travis county voted against it, so your efforts here weren't wasted. Once again Travis will be a red dot in a sea of blue.

Yeah, I know, but unfortunately we have to abide by the rest of the state :( *sigh* Stupid state. I'd so leave if Austin wasn't so cool.

Isn't it a blue dot in a sea of red?

I never subscribed to the whole 'follow our religion or you're going to Hell!' thing. For one, and I believe more than one comedian has pointed this out, what if we're following the wrong one?

I think it more important that you try to live a 'good' life (i.e. do no harm to others, try to make the world (even if just the immediate world around you) a better place, etc.)

God/Allah/FSM/The Winslow asks for little else, IMO.

Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.

I think that the vast majority of right-wing religious nutjobs would actually agree that they're trying to make the world a better place. "Better" is so subjective.

FSM? I don't know that one. Planetary systems have been destroyed by someone assuming to know the mind of The Winslow, tho.

Oh God.
May his noodly appendage soon reach you.

I hear 6th was a veritable Olive Garden of FSMs on Halloween.

Re: Oh God.
Ah, yes, His Starchiness :) I just didn't recognize the acronym.

Well at least Maine (last night I was thinking it was Ohio, but it was Maine)voted to keep the state's gay-rights law. And all four of Arnold's propositions bombed in California. And the Texas amendment that would of put it in the constitution for the toll road making council to be granted six year terms did not pass. So it's not all bad, just very depressing.

Yeah, this is a two-week mope, six-month rant thing. But I had my wedding dress all picked out.

Even without the amendment, it still wouldn't be legal in Texas. Not only was Proposition 2 stupid, it was redundant.

Bah, get all factual on me.

But you could still use that wedding dress- we should do public mock gay weddings as a protest. It'll be as legally binding as it would have been before prop 2 got passed and it will really annoy the conservatives.

Not until I find a wedding dress with matching tulle veil in leopard print!
