Well, here’s a Michele Bachmann quote I can truly stand behind. Finally, the woman speaks God’s truth.
“Normalization [of gayness] through desensitization. Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders is take a picture of ‘The Lion King’ for instance, and a teacher might say, ‘Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?’ The message is: ‘I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.‘”
The emphasis is mine. And, it is so true. I am better at what I do, because I’m gay.
I have an amazing attention to detail. I am not distracted by the cute guys in the office. And, because I am happily married, I’m not distracted by the pretty women. I have talent for the technical details and I am able to do the heavy lifting.
So, she’s right. I am better at what I do, because I’m gay.
If you’ve been paying any attention to the news in the blogsphere the last couple of days, you couldn’t miss the shameful truth. The missing gay girl was really a healthy man. This morning I saw a headline that another lesbian blogger was revealed to be a man. So, in the interest of full disclosure, I have an announcement to make:
I am a lesbian, Christian, loud mouth, political junkie, college educated, SQL Developing grandmother to five beautiful boys woman who lives in Racine, WI. The only men I sleep with are two male cats and a fluffy white dog. I am faithful to my wife of ten years and if you find a picture of me naked on the web, it means my father is posting my baby pictures.
I posted this as my facebook status and I feel strongly that we should all do the same. Tragedies such as this can be and should be prevented!
I was thinking about that poor woman who was texting while walking & ended up falling into a Mall fountain. I cannot believe that our lawmakers are not out there right now trying to pass a law to prevent this from happening! Malls should not have fountains, they are dangerous! And, we should outlaw texting while walking! We cannot have a tragedy like this happen again! If you agree, please post this in your status!
This poor woman is not humilated because her awful fall has been posted all over and watched hundreds, if not thousands of times on YouTube! This is a travesty! Something should be done about it! Our lawmakers should protect us from ourselves!!!
Let’s watch the video again so that we can learn what not to do when near a Mall fountain!
No new blog post. I’m still reading this week’s magazines – then, my Internet went down tonight. Totally peeved! I messed with it for two hours – turn off the modem, turn off the router, turn off pc, turn everything on, release ip, flush dns, etc. Whole nine yards – nothing. Router won’t talk to modem and modem only talks to computer 1/2 the time. Router will talk to the computer. It’s like their in a love triangle and had a fight or something.
Finally, I turned off the modem, router and left the pc on. Turned on modem, router and connected everything. Boom, it worked. 100th try must be the charm.
But, hey, even with my Internet issues, no reindeer walked away with my wife! Found this via E3 on YouTube. Imagine if I couldn’t have connected tonight – I would’ve missed this!
I’ve mentioned Lewis Black in a previous post – look in the archives and you’ll find it. Anyway, I’m reading his book Nothing Sacred. I have to tell you, it is good. At places, it is really, really funny, but more importantly, it is thought provoking. For example, on pages 10 and 11, he writes about playing war as a child. He ends this little look into his childhood by saying:
“It should be noted at this time not one of us ever had an interest in real guns or ever bought one. Then when it came to raising kids, my generation didn’t allow them to play with guns. That’s when things took an abrupt turn for the worse. I certainly wouldn’t say there is a connection, but it is strange that only a few kids play out these war fantasies in their backyards and yet there seems to be more violence among them.”
It made me stop and think for a moment. We are, certainly a much more violent society now than we were in the fifties and sixties. I don’t remember such violence encroaching on my childhood in the seventies.
So, my point is that you should read this book. I started it today at lunch and I’m almost done. It is a very quick read. And, if any of my family or friends are reading, my birthday is coming up and I would very much like an autograph copy of it. That would be a really cool gift for me.
You’ve got to see this guy. He’s really funny! Take the time to check out Mr. Black’s video “Black on Broadway”.
