Consequences of Inaction

Go and read any major newspaper in the country today. There’s bound to be a story about the general incompetence of the government regarding this whole Ebola outbreak. I made the mistake earlier this week of skimming through the comment section of one such story, and the ignorance and venom out there almost made ME go to the ER for exposure.

Fighting the Inevitable

With the recent Supreme Court non-decisions, the legality of gay marriage was decided in numerous states, as Federal District court decisions overturning anti-gay-marriage bans were allowed to stand. That means gay marriage is now legal in 30 states. While gay-rights supporters were jubilant, those who fear and loathe their fellow citizens who happen to have been born gay are having an opposite reaction.

As Amanda Marcotte writes, Gay marriage opponents [are] reduced to blabbering incoherently. She cites the example of Family Research Council President Tony Perkins who makes the hilarious claim that legalizing gay marriage is just like ignoring gravity:
“You can act like it’s not there, you can act like gravity doesn't work, but I'm going to tell you it will catch up with you sooner or later and you are going to hit the ground and culturally we are going to hit the ground by ignoring the realities of marriage,” he said.

Breaking News:
New Ebola patient in Dallas Texas. Heath care worker who was treating Thomas Eric Duncan (who recently passed away from the virus). Hopefully the hospital is doing a better job and not turning away a patient who's been around the virus and has a high fever. "Go home and take two aspirin".

Thank you for flying TARDIS
Author: TriSec    Date: 10/11/2014 12:29:08

Good Morning.

I recently discovered the good Doctor and his time-traveling ways. I never saw any of the “classic” series previously, although I have always been aware of it. I shan’t even consider the debate over the doctors, but suffice to say I am rather enjoying Mr. Eccleston in the role.

Ah, but what fun would it be to travel by TARDIS? In the first few episodes, they’ve been to the 1870s, the year five billion, 2012, and just now the year 200,000. It is curious to ponder the ebb and flow of time, so of course I have.
