All in all...

I have to say, that even as the state abridges my rights and the dumbing down of America threatens my paycheck, this is REALLY a fascinating time to live. I find the news to be more riveting in certain respects than a good TV show--I'm hanging on what Kansas will do to science education, how it will spread, the strange sparks it struck in the Internet community. Watching the religous right overreach itself--maybe--is kind of like watching a horror show. It really feels like we're approaching something that will be a page in the history books.

The country lives in interesting times. I'm privileged to be able to watch them, even participate in them in some small way.

That being said, I will be distressed if the right manages to reinstate the "sodomy laws", all textbooks are forced to acknowledge that Jesus was instrumental in every positive event in human history including the birth of Bhuddism, and Wicca is declared a hobby instead of a religion. Still, it's definately fun to watch.

I'm happy that apparently 90% or so of younger voters under 30 voted against the stupid Prop2. And a fourth of the voters in Shrub's homestate (more than all the gays in Texas) voting against it made me sleep actually pretty well last night. =^.^=

Though just a tidbit of fun I've heard is the idiots who drafted it said the law refuses to acknowledge anything "similar or identical to marriage", meaning all hetero couples could be null and void hehehe.

Eh, that's a stretch, though it's a fun argument :) The young-voter thing is a REALLY good sign, though, thanks :)

"May you live in interesting times" .. wasn't that a curse somewhere in history? *g*

It is kinda fun to watch, sort of like a train wreck. :D
