in which we can vote in discrimination and have it stand.

(05-26) 10:05 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- BULLETIN: The California Supreme Court upheld Prop. 8 by a 6-1 vote but ruled that the same sex marriages performed last year can stand.

So, I've decided to officially scrap my 101 List... oddly, it turns out it's exactly 1 year from when I started it.  I'm going to make new goals, but not a 101 list.  I just can't see far enough ahead right now to do 10001 days.

Leaving my old list here.  Will set a new Goal list to the top of my LJ.

This morning I went, as I often do, to the coffee shop with some co-workers.  While I rarely buy anything, I enjoy the walk.  The short, two tiny-block walk.

On the way to the coffee shop a bird, over hang, tree, or some such hostile creature pooped/dropped/spit/threw gunk on my hair.  It was whitish and became crusty after a bit.

On the way back to the office, an acorn was hurled at us.  Seemed like it was thrown, but we couldn't spot a possible perpetrator other than a tree.  But it didn't just fall.  Heck it didn't even go DOWN.  It came somewhat sideways at us.  With force.  We suspect the tree or an armed squirrel.

Something is out to get me, and it's not even a zombie.

My apartment is being demolished!

Well, the insides at least!

This, is good, btw, because it means I don't have to do the move out clean!!!  Hip hip Huzzah!

A week or two ago, I wrote about my experience with Fast Trak .  How I was being charged for a guy running a toll booth, who had a plate number similar to mine, although my CA plate hadn't even been issued at the time of the infraction.

Guess what?  Got another one in the mail!  Same guy, same toll, different day.  So, I called Fast Trak again this morning, and told them this needed to stop.  They said, no, you're just going to keep getting his tickets and have to call every time to clear it up. Obviously, I requested to talk to someone higher up but "they can't transfer me."  So, I'm waiting for a call.

Run to the old apt at lunch to check my mail.  A THIRD FAST TRAK VIOLATION!  That's 3 in 20 days!

How can we vote in our first African-American president and at the same time vote discrimination into the laws in multiple states?

Americans, you are blind sheep.

I'm not gonna get married 'til gays can. If civil union is good enough for them, it's good enough for me.

Hate 'em, I do!  But, ah well.

Who supports McCain? 

My favorite part:  "Richard Clarke, the former White House counterterrorism director, and Joseph Nye, the former chairman of the National Intelligence Council, have both suggested that Al Qaeda prefers Mr. McCain and might even try to use terror attacks in the coming days to tip the election to him."

Yippee.  Skippee.

While I'm at it, how is being a POW at all a qualification for being president?  I can see the patriotic, serving your country aspect of being a soldier.  But getting caught?  Uh, good job?

Because it seems to be the topic of the day.

Did you hear the one about YesOnProp8 trying to extort businesses?

Also, I heard on NPR today that Black and Hispanic people as a group are more likely to vote for the gay marriage ban.  I don't get it?  How do they not see that this is discrimination just like racism?  The crazy Yes on 8 people are the same as the backwards people from generations ago who didn't think colored people should have the same rights as white people.

I hope anyone who votes to ban gay marriage has their own marriage destroyed by interlopers. 

I don't think I'll be able to watch as the results of the election on the 4th.  I'm going to try to distract myself until late late late, or the next morning when the results are final.  I don't think I can take the suspense!

Everyone out there, vote!!  (For Obama, that is.  :-P)
