You know how when ppl think of San Fran, they think of the gays? The city’s got the highest concentration of homosexuals in the country (maybe the world, mu-hahahaha). Sorry, that just came out. It’s also got the highest concentration of Chinese folks outside the mother-land (being China, duh!); but that’s a story for another … Continue reading the military, the gays, San Fran, & Milk
I loved San Francisco. It was quite lovely. It also made me feel a little regret-ful about the bad things I said about LA, b/c I met this really nice guy there who is actually from LA (as in, lived there all his life). And I said some bad things (or at least thought some … Continue reading San Fran
If you’re reading this, you’re obviously are social on the internet, and noticed that fb “went red” on Tuesday. There was a social solidarity to wear red on Tuesday, as SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the US) was hearing arguments against Prop 8 in California on Tuesday, and against DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) on … Continue reading Obama signed a law (Monsanto edition)
There’s no “right” or “wrong” way to protest something. Some people will have a ‘silent protest’, some will ‘boycott’, others will have a ‘hunger strike’. Some will rally, with signs and/or chanting. Few will remember the iconic 1968 Olympics photo of the 2 black athletes who, during their medal ceremony held up their fists in … Continue reading the right way to protest
There is a new slew of comic book superheros that are women, and of course you know that I love that! One such (newish) superhero is a Muslim teen, born in Jersey City. She is Kamala Khan by day, and morphs into Ms. Marvel when the going gets tough! Well, in San Francisco, a hate … Continue reading hate speech vs free speech
The Hartford Courant disclosed a new piece of info this wk that we didn’t know before… That Newtown shooting… 152 shots were fired in less than 5 mins. B/c in that Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle, were multiple, extended 30-round magazines. His mother would not have been able to purchase this if, in 2004, Congress had … Continue reading 152 shots in less than 5 mins.
More like the clouded-over state. Don’t mean to be a negative & stuff, but I’ve mentioned before how Florida gets more days of thunderstorms every year than not. And we know the ppl there aren’t exactly the brightest in the country. They’re the only state w/ that whole hanging chad problem. Plus, they decided as … Continue reading the sunshine state?
Driving home yesterday, there was one of those advertisements on the radio for an upcoming event at one of the clubs. There’s this club, Moda, here in Cleveland. It was kinda a big-deal when it 1st opened. Like, they would charge $10 to $20 cover just to get in, depending on who was dj-ing that … Continue reading how much is your dignity worth to ya?
You know how much I respect my POTUS. I did live tweet the State of the Union address tonight, which can be seen to the right for the time being. As I’ve done in the past, I like to have my own personal transcript of his speech so I can come back to it in … Continue reading President Obama’s SOTU 2015
I know I’ve linked to my original Milk post before. But I’m just saddened by what’s going on today. All these suicides. Gender identity & sexual orientation are NOT included in anti-bullying programs?!? School started a month ago, & many LGBT kids have committed SUICIDE b/c of the bullying they face. Here’s a link to … Continue reading re-do on my Milk post
