Good News, Everybody!

You know, I'd been feeling kind of down since Comrade Obama admitted we no longer have what it takes to go to the Moon. But this makes up for all that. USA! USA! USA!

It's about time, FTC

Finally, the FTC is going to do something about the auto warranty crooks who keep calling.

"This is one of the most aggressive telemarketing schemes the FTC has ever encountered," said FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz. "I'm not sure which is worse, the abusive telemarketing tactics of these companies, or the way they try to deceive people once they get them on the phone. Either way, we intend to shut them down."

Your mom and dad may not be comfortable with gay marriage

...but the rest of the country is. Well, at least with marriage or the civil union equivalent...

In the second type of poll -- the "three-way" poll where the respondent may pick civil unions rather than marriage or nothing -- support for gay marriage is typically slightly lower, as about 5-10 percent of respondents appear to have a preference order of civil unions > gay marriage > nothing, where gay marriage is preferred to nothing, but civil unions are preferred to both alternatives. Gay marriage had yet to poll a plurality in this type of survey either -- until this week, when a CBS/NYT poll put support for full marriage rights at 42 percent, versus 25 percent for civil unions and 28 percent for no legal recognition. This represents a significant increase from an identical CBS/NYT poll in March, where the numbers were 33 percent for marriage, 27 percent for civil unions, and 35 percent for no recognition.

I KNEW IT! Clay Aiken Trips Gaydar

As if this post was not foretelling. American Idol pop-singer Clay Aiken has finally come out as gay.

Will Young could beat his ass any day. Actually, I take that back. Forget Clay's ass, really, forget it. Young can beat mine instead.

In the meantime, please enjoy this picture, yet again.

This man owes $105 million dollars

Photobucket A judge reduced the award of $10 million to a family who was harassed by the Nutters Phelps to $5million. Apparently, the church doesn't have the $10million, but they do have the $5million. Which is great because I'd love nothing more than to see them scrubbed out of existence.

How you feel about the war is irrelevant. Respect the men and women fighting it. Period.

Robot Suit Attack

This is the Matshushita Demon Suit 3000 which can turn a normal human into a being capable of destroying whole city blocks. Or it's a suit to help those weakened by stroke. Which do you think is correct?

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingMatsushita has developed a suit with virtual muscles. While it won't help you lift semis one-handed, it will aid in the rehabilitation of stroke victims suffering from partial paralysis by moving their limbs. Slated for 2009 release, the suit will run about $17,000, but should become cheaper with mass production.

Version 2.0 will be for normal lazy people like me who just get tired of actually using our muscles. Version 3.0 will be for Republicans who lack spines.

NJ opens the door to equality for gays and lesbians

NJ's Supreme Court ruled that homosexual couples are entitled to the same rights as heterosexual couples but did not rule on a mandate for full marriage rights. The Court passed the responsibility back to the legislature in NJ and gave them 180 days to fix the situation either by allowing marriage or civil unions.
