Cowards operate in the dark

So the people who spent money to make gay marriage a non-viable option in California are arguing that their contributions should be kept secret.

Firstly, these people took advantage of the California law that states that only a simple majority of voters are required to enact a new amendment to the state constitution. They certainly like THAT law.

But they don't like the one that says donor information is public information.

Only cowards hide their faces while they burn their crosses.

Full story here:


And I repeat: What kind of marriages do the opponents of gay marriage have, that their own marriages are threatened by letting Sue and Martha or Mike and Bill marry each other? I guess Ted Haggart's current marriage might be in danger.. but not because other people are marrying.

My marriage isn't threatened. I guess we're doing it right, huh?

God I love this woman's music

I'm sitting here listening to Alanis Morissette, and you know, the fact that her music was the freaking SOUNDTRACK of my second marriage, the entire relationship damn near from the day we met until he waltzed out the door with the dog really should have told me something, it really should have.

But we live and we learn, right? What's good is what I have NOW, that big fuzzy man in the queen size bed about four feet from me right now. And what I had then? That was insanity, that was unhealthy, that was abusive and horrible and thank the Lord it's over.

Thank you, Alanis, for giving the music that I was deaf to the real message of at the time. :)

Jenn's Hotlist - Things I've Never Done

Today, gentle readers, I will be posting my hotlist of things that I've never done. I know you're all dying to find out, right?

1) I lived in San Francisco for 20 years and never rode a cable car, never walked the Golden Gate Bridge, and never went to Alcatraz.

2) I lived in Boston for 20 years and never went to a Red Sox game. Shame on my Dad for that one, in one of his extremely rare male masculinity things he brought his girlfriend's son several times, but never his daughters.

3) I have never danced naked in the rain.

4) I have never experienced labor and childbirth, thanks to two cesarean sections.

5) I have never owned a gun.

6) I have never seen an episode of Dr. Who, nor read any of the books. I have no interest.

7) I have never read the Xanth books, even though my nickname all over the net is j3nny3lf. The nick has NOTHING to do with the books.

8) I have never lied to my husband, no matter what one person out there claims. She and I know the EXACT truth on that one, don't we JS?

9) I have never seen my two youngest granddaughters in person, only in pictures.

10) I've never had my appendix out.

What are some things you've never done?

Yes, I know many of you hate Walmart. I don't. Let's agree to disagree.

They just won more Jennpoints because I bought a bottle of their own brand of diet cola.

And I can't taste a difference between it and Coke Zero.

Another truly class act. NO sarcasm intended

Text of statement by Tom Daschle, withdrawing his nomination for secretary of health and human services:

I have just informed the president that I am withdrawing my name from consideration for secretary of health and human services.

To be chosen by President Obama to run the Department of Health and Human Services and to lead the reform of America's health care system is one of the signal honors of an improbable career.

But if 30 years of exposure to the challenges inherent in our system has taught me anything, it has taught me that this work will require a leader who can operate with the full faith of Congress and the American people, and without distraction.

Right now, I am not that leader, and will not be a distraction. The focus of Congress should be on the urgent business of moving the president's economic agenda forward, including affordable health care for every American.

We need the best care in America to be available to all Americans. We need this effort to succeed. Lives and livelihoods are at stake.

I will not be the architect of America's health system reform, but I remain one of its most fervent supports. Thank you.

Reason #467,928 that I love President Obama

He's not afraid to admit he makes mistakes. Even when it's gotta sting.

WASHINGTON – Barack Obama on Tuesday abruptly abandoned his nomination fight for Tom Daschle and a second major appointee who failed to pay all their taxes, fearing a lingering ethics dispute would undercut his claims to moral high ground and cripple his presidency in just its second week. "I screwed up," Obama declared.

"It's important for this administration to send a message that there aren't two sets of rules — you know, one for prominent people and one for ordinary folks who have to pay their taxes," Obama said near the end of a day of jarring developments, little more than 24 hours after he had said he was "absolutely" committed to Daschle's confirmation.

"I'm frustrated with myself, with our team. ... I'm here on television saying I screwed up," Obama said on NBC's "Nightly News with Brian Williams." He repeated virtually the same words in interviews with other TV anchors.
