  • Some of my neighbors have gone over the top with scary yard decorations for Halloween.  Right next to the traditional ghost and zombies in their yards, they have these truly terrifying signs that say McCain – Palin ’08.  It creeps me out every time I see one.
  • Although I was planning to do the whole “Mike D – Beastie Boys” thing for the 80’s Halloween party, Mrs. Mosquito Eater convinced me to just wear a Material Issue shirt (technically from 1991, but odds are no one will know that), and go for a Punk Rock look.

  • I’m going to a 80’s Themed – Halloween Party next weekend.  Possible costume ideas include:
    • Robert Smith of the Cure
    • Morrissey
    • Pee Wee Herman
    • Other Ideas??????
  • I’ve been Tivo-ing the Daily Show lately to get political information.  It seems like they do a better job of taking the candidates to task than the regular media.  The question I have,  is the show still worth watching once the election is over?

Terrible Person

I must be a terrible person, but I have way to much going on in my life to lose sleep over:

  • A woman I’ve never met choosing not to give birth to child that she doesn’t want because she got pregnant by someone else I’ve never met that she shouldn’t have gotten pregnant by.
  • Two people I’ve never met doing things I don’t know about in the privacy of their own house/bedroom, whether they be a male and a female, two males, or two females.
  • Two men or two women I’ve never met having the same legal rights regarding medical decisions and property decisions that I have with my wife.

And yet many people are more worried about these issues than things like the environment, the economy, science education and research, and actually trying to make it a year without anyone in our military having to kill someone they’ve never met because someone else told them to.

Bigots Rejoice

From under the rock of pwjagwdyecn Cynthia Davis:

In September, when I sent out my Capitol Report that included photos of the McDonald’s ribbon cutting, some of my readers wrote me asking how I could support this organization because of its corporate support for homosexuality. I am happy to report that McDonald’s has now changed its position, and we should all celebrate by letting the corporate office know we appreciate its new commitment to stay neutral. Here is the final word from American Family Association (AFA):

Great news! Because of AFA supporters like you, McDonald’s has told AFA it will remain neutral in the culture war regarding homosexual marriage. AFA is ending the boycott of McDonald’s. As you know, AFA called for the boycott in May after McDonald’s joined the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC).

McDonald’s said its Vice President, Richard Ellis, has resigned his position on the board of directors of NGLCC and his seat on the board will not be replaced. McDonald’s also said that the company has no plans to renew its membership in NGLCC when it expires in December.

In an e-mail to McDonald’s franchised owners, the company said, “It is our policy to not be involved in political and social issues. McDonald’s remains neutral on same-sex marriage or any ‘homosexual agenda’ as defined by the American Family Association.”

We appreciate the decision by McDonald’s to no longer support political activity by homosexual activist organizations. You might want to thank your local McDonald’s manager.

Depressing that McDonalds would fold to the pressure of a hate organization like AFA.

Redeeming Quality

If pwjagwdyecn Cynthia Davis has one redeeming quality, it is that she always sends out information about what is going to be on the ballot in the upcoming elections.  With her spin of course, but it is still a valuable service.

Hopefully emails from her will abruptly come to an end in January and I can get on Malan or Cook’s  email list.
