deep thoughts for the new year [Dec. 31st, 2010|05:46 pm]

My paid account has expired, and since I hardly ever use LJ anymore, I'm just going to leave well enough alone. Food is a higher priority.

I posted this on my Facebook page, but it bears reposting here:

Sam Harris' New Year's Resolutions for the Rich

As you know, I've been struggling to survive in the lower 5% of the American economic spectrum for years. Sam Harris gives us an enlightened perspective from someone in the upper 5%. Here is an excerpt:

"...Americans have made a religious fetish of something called "self-reliance." Most seem to think that while a person may not be responsible for the opportunities he gets in life, each is entirely responsible for what he makes of these opportunities. This is, without question, a false view of the human condition. Consider the biography of any "self-made" American, from Benjamin Franklin on down, and you will find that his success was entirely dependent on background conditions that he did not make, and of which he was a mere beneficiary. There is not a person on earth who chose his genome, or the country of his birth, or the political and economic conditions that prevailed at moments crucial to his progress. Consequently, no one is responsible for his intelligence, range of talents, or ability to do productive work. If you have struggled to make the most of what Nature gave you, you must still admit that Nature also gave you the ability and inclination to struggle. How much credit do I deserve for not having Down syndrome or any other disorder that would make my current work impossible?"



...and with that said, I hope economic conditions and serendipity smile on each and every one of you in the coming year! May hard work, focus, determination, love and justice pay off for you the way they should in an ideal and well-balanced world.

And just once, I hope they do for me as well.

This is me on doggy patrol at someone else's house, exploring the kitchen:

*tests knife for keenness with tongue*
*saws knife up and down on tongue*
"These people have gotta sharpen their fucking knives."

Proposition 8 Declared Unconstitutional [Aug. 4th, 2010|02:44 pm]
Hello, my name is Aaaaaaaarrgh!
[Current Mood |determineddetermined]

I give thanks to the higher human mind that logic and reason prevailed.

As I read in this article, U.S. District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker (who's bound to be a household name by tomorrow morning) found that the notorious proposition "fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite-sex couples are superior to same-sex couples."

The whole idea was repulsive to me from the beginning. Let's ask everyone, many of whom prefer to remain ignorant about you and hateful towards you, if they want to take away one of your basic unalienable rights. I knew it would end up in the supreme court, and I was hoping for an outcome like this.

But the Prop. 8 backers will appeal, and this may go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. And I hope it does. It's time we all asked ourselves honestly, do we want to be the sort of society that denies an entire class of citizens a basic right, based on a factor over which they have no control? And more abstractly, are we so overburdened with love in our society these days that we can afford to look down our collective nose at it?

Here's how strongly I feel about this. I will not marry a man in any state until I can marry a woman IN ANY STATE.
