  1. I’m hoping and praying that these are the kind of people who don’t vote, cause it’s “not cool”:

    I get this question all the time. Well, you hold it. You can’t cross your legs. So you just gotta get really good at holding it.

  2. COPY PASTE PLAUW!

    VIA THE OLD MAN:

    And because I never know when to stop-

    City and County of San Francisco two unmarried persons to marry (in violation of state law), but I want to marry my twin sisters, both of whom are over age 18. So I called (415) 554-4950, the San Francisco County Clerk, and asked if we could get married.
    “No.” they said after I explained my situation.
    “Why not?” I asked naively.
    “Because the law does not allow it.”
    Incised by their denial of my request, I sought an advocate. I contacted California Assembly Members Leno, Goldberg, Kehoe, Laird, and Lieber, sponsors of the “California Marriage License Nondiscrimination Act”. None would speak with me. Undeterred I sought further aid. I contacted MECA, the self proclaimed champions against ignorant and hateful traditional values.
    “Please help me.” I plead “The traditionalists oppose my right to marry whom I choose.”
    “Marriage is a basic human right and a personal choice.” said the nice lady at MECA. “The State should not interfere with same-gender couples who choose to marry and share fully and equally in the rights, responsibilities, and commitment of marriage.”
    “Well we are not exactly same gendered.” I replied. “I want to marry my twin sisters.”
    “You are a sick pervert!” and hung up.
    The same thing occurred when I contacted Equality California a group opposing discrimination in the Constitution. Unfortunately they only seem to fight discrimination against homosexual relationships, not bigamous incestuous relationships. And although the ACLU praised the granting of privileges to same-sex couples, they had the same reaction as the others when I posed my request.
    “Sorry, Sis and other Sis, I tried.”
    “But Lover” they echoed, “you have not called Les Jin,the Staff Director of the United States Commission on Civil Rights; you have his home number in your secret government file.”
    “How could I have forgotten… Les, it’s me. Yeah, how you doin’? And Flo? Unhu. Really? First in his class. Hey I have a question for you about marrying my twin sisters. Yeah that’s right, twin sisters. But the gays in California… Oh, the 14th Amendment doesn’t apply to me? That sucks.”

  3. After having COPY PASTING BLAUW’D that screed, I am now reading it and result=confused. Funny confused, not real confused. I know what you’re after, I just don’t particularly agree. MLK’s law-breaking=noble, and I liken it to the current gay rights defiance in SF.

  4. The Catholic Encyclopedia has a lot to say about giving up crap for lent. “In the United States, the Holy See grants faculties whereby working men and their families may use flesh meat once a day throughout the year, except Fridays, Ash Wednesday, Holy Saturday, and the vigil of Christmas. The only compensation imposed for all these mitigations is the prohibition during Lent against partaking of both fish and flesh at the same repast.” Swearing seems to be OK.

    by Jen

    And I would have gotten away with it too if it hadn’t been for you meddling kids.

  6. I wish that if we pulled off Old Man’s face it would be Herb Kohl underneath. Then Jen H. would gasp and faint.

  7. very funny old man. very funny. but just in case you think there is some shread of truth in that “incisive” post here is some mlk taken from “Letter from Birmingham Jail” that you now get to read:

    “You may well ask: “Why direct action? Why sit-ins, marches and so forth? Isn’t negotiation a better path?” You are quite right in calling, for negotiation. Indeed, this is the very purpose of direct action. Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue. It seeks so to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored. My citing the creation of tension as part of the work of the nonviolent-resister may sound rather shocking. But I must confess that I am not afraid of the word “tension.” I have earnestly opposed violent tension, but there is a type of constructive, nonviolent tension which is necessary for growth. Just as Socrates felt that it was necessary to create a tension in the mind so that individuals could rise from the bondage of myths and half-truths to the unfettered realm of creative analysis and objective appraisal, we must we see the need for nonviolent gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that will help men rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism to the majestic heights of understanding and brotherhood.”

    you here the herr doktor old man? brotherhood.
