"That Guy" in Philly, Two Mommies and The People Teaching Our Kids

Yeah, so this pretty much ruins years of good Sex and the City memories...

  • If you live in Philly and have an extra $10K, you can head down to the Franklin Institute tonight for premium seating and a photo with President Obama (I'm quite sure ID/SS# and a secret service pat down will also be a requirement). But, don't fret, the 99% can get in for a mere $250 (sorry, no complimentary binoculars).

    "Barack Obama has already held more re-election fundraising events than every elected president since Richard Nixon combined, according to figures to be published in a new book.

    Obama is also the only president in the past 35 years to visit every electoral battleground state in his first year of office.

    The figures, contained a in a new book called The Rise of the President’s Permanent Campaign by Brendan J. Doherty, due to be published by University Press of Kansas in July, give statistical backing to the notion that Obama is more preoccupied with being re-elected than any other commander-in-chief of modern times."

  • 'Creationists' are constantly being mocked for ignoring science. For putting belief over biology. On Bill Maher's how, bumper stickers and on Left wing blogs... But, for some reason, when it comes to sexuality --biology goes out the window. Forget the fact that living beings are here to procreate. Suddenly, love is all that matters and biology and science be damned...

    Comprehensive Study suggests risks from same-sex parenting

    A major pet peeve of mine is when people confuse uncomfortable reality and discrimination.

  • So, it's one thing to ban kids from singing "God Bless the USA," but to replace it with Justin Beiber's "Baby?"

    "A controversial Coney Island principal has pulled the plug on patriotism.

    Her refusal to let students sing “God Bless the USA” at their graduation has sparked fireworks at a school filled with proud immigrants.

    Greta Hawkins, principal of PS 90, the Edna Cohen School, won’t allow kindergartners to belt out the beloved Lee Greenwood ballad, also known as “Proud to be an American,” at their moving-up ceremony." (source)
