Dragon

Posted on Monday, January 23rd, 2012

Dave!What a freaky-ass day.

I can only guess that this has something to do with the Chinese New Year beginning. It's The Year of the Dragon, after all. And while I don't put much stock into the Chinese Zodiac, I do think it's a pretty entertaining and well-thought-out concept. Especially since Dragons have Rats and Monkeys as bestest friends, which is kind of cool if you ask me...

DAVETOON: Bad Monkey Rides a Dragon!

My day started when I went to get into my car and drive to work. And found that I couldn't. There was a sheet of ice a quarter-inch thick covering everything... including the door. This meant fifteen minutes of scraping ice out of the door seams with the bottle opener on my keychain. Then another ten minutes chipping ice off the rest of my car with an ice scraper before my vehicle was fit to drive. It wouldn't have been all that bad if not for the fact that my bottle opener broke, giving up its life so I could go to work. I've had it for over a decade and used it often, but don't think I ever actually opened a bottle with it.

Once I finally made it to work, I was plagued with a series of inexplicably bizarre phone calls (and here I was just saying how much I hated talking on the phone!). The bad news is that it wasted entirely too much of my time. The good news is that I got to alleviate my boredom by getting caught up on Facebook and Twitter.

I also got caught up with entertainment news and learned that Seal and Heidi Klum were breaking up their marriage after seven years. I dunno why, but I was pretty sad to hear it.

And speaking of marriage... I then got caught up on news news and learned that Washington State's Legislature has enough votes to pass marriage equality. Whether this actually happens remains to be seen, but I am really happy that my gay and lesbian friends here in The Evergreen State are one step closer to being able to celebrate their relationships in marriage just like opposite-sex couples can!

Of course, all is not big gay smiles here in The Pacific Northwest...

It's Pastor Ken!

This is Pastor Ken Hutcherson who is heading up some backwards anti-equality organization had this to say about Washington State Governor Chris Gregoire... "She might as well change her name to John Wilkes Booth because what she’s doing now is trying to put a bullet in the head of one of the greatest traditions that has ever existed and has built our society, and that is marriage between one man and one woman."

Far be it for me to speak ill of a man of the cloth... but what a fucking idiot.

What "puts a bullet in the head of marriage" is DIVORCE you dumbass. And why drag President Lincoln into this? Perhaps you hadn't heard, but the man eventually ended up fighting for equality of peoples in kind of a big way. Not really the best example you could have used.

But whatever.

What's important is that dinosaurs like Pastor Ken are slowly and steadily becoming a thing of the past as new generations of Americans understand that FREEDOM means that you sometimes have to accept shit you don't want to. Don't believe in same-sex marriage? Then how about you don't fucking marry somebody of the same sex?

But I guess I should know better than to try and apply logic to situations like these. To entirely too many people, it's only "freedom" when everything goes your way.

    You definitely can’t talk sense to a jackass. It’s just WEIRD to me that people are so threatened by gay marriage.

  2. There is going to be so much of that foolish shit here in August when the RNC comes to town! UGH! Be glad you popped over last fall, before all the Kra Kra comes to town. And by kra kra I mean spending ass loads of $$ for an armored SWAT vehicle, silently moving the homeless away from areas where the RNC will be staying or meeting(Oh no! They will see we have homeless people HIDE THEM!!), and spending even more ass loads of $$ for food & drink and God knows what else to entertain these bigoted, discriminating jerks. They have no logic.

    I was called today for a WA survey about marriage. I think the surveyor was more than a little disappointed when I told him that I didn’t think marriage was just for one man/one woman!

  4. Invader_Stu says:

    Yeah… It’s not men and women who get married and publiclly divorced less then a week later. No. It could not be that that is devaluing marriage. [Insert sarcasm]

    You know what someone should do. Show people who think same sex marriage is destroying marriage two couples. One couple is two men who love each other very much, have been together for a very long time and support each other through difficult times. The other, a man and woman who hooked up a week ago, got married too quickly, argue all the time, are cheating on each other and are having a messy divorce. Then , after showing these two couples ask, “Which one do you think is getting it right?”

    I hope one day the bad monkey gives lessons in dragon riding, because I’d sign up for that.

  6. A. Lewis says:

    Let’s focus on your dragon and not on that Hutcherson weirdo.

  7. martymankins says:

    The idea that these morons are clinging to their beliefs, let alone trying to force them onto every one else. But the kicker is when they spew fucking crap like that… it’s as if they feel they need to shock and awe the masses with a “did he just pull Lincoln into this?” statement. Press worthy, I’ll give it that.

  8. i like big gay smiles.
    that pastor doesn’t look like he smiles too much.
    i would have smiled more if that were a red dragon and bad monkey was wearing green hat.

  9. Megan says:

    Some people are simply waaaaay too interested in what goes on in other people’s bedrooms. I invite them to direct their righteous indignation to something more productive than blocking the civil rights of others just because it makes them uncomfortable.
