I don't care who is in the White House I love the Christmas decorations. It is all so beautiful, I look forward to the HGTV special each year that shows all the trees, decorations, wreaths and gingerbread house. This year in the gingerbread house, they decorated and electrified four little rooms. You can look thru the windows and see the rooms. Very cool.

So, I have blogged before about how I have people face. Please look at me and tell me more about themselves than I really need to know.
Well, I guess that extends to ears as well.
Yesterday I made a service call to Verizon and I got a woman on the phone who asked me how my day was going. I answered that it really sucked and how was hers?
She had just finished a conversation with her mother-in-law. It seems that her husband had not spoken to his family in twenty-one years. Can you believe that? Twenty-one years. Last Christmas I told him that I did not care why he was not speaking to them, he needed to get back in touch with them. So he did and now they want them to move back to Long Island. The currently live in Seattle and there is no way she is moving there. It is so hot and wet in the summer she would just hate it. Seems she is the good daughter in law, the other one does not even speak to the mother-in-law and she thinks it might be because the woman is a little over bearing and pushy.
She really did go on for a while and I wondered how does she see my people face thru the phone????
I am not ashamed to be a Christian.
You don't have to sit in a pew every Sunday to know this country is in trouble.
Gays can serve openly in the but children can't celebrate Christmas in schools.
I will end Obama's war against religion.
I'm Rick Perry and I'm an asshole.
OK, so maybe I paraphrased a little bit.

So today the 9th circuit held another hearing about Prop 8. Should the judge who ruled Prop 8 unconstitutional have recused himself because he was gay would benefit from the ruling. The no on 8 lawyers argued that if that was a basis for putting a case aside then a female judge could not hear a case involving women's rights or a black judge could never sit on a case about civil rights, because they could benefit from the results.
The 9th circuit seems to think that there was not proof that the judge wanted or wants to get married and if he did he could have done it during the time it was legal in California. They seem to be leaning towards having his ruling stand. That Prop 8 is unconstitutional, this will be a very big and important ruling. It is the last public hearing before they release a decision.
On the same news report was talk about the current bunch of republicans wanting to be President. Now they are attacking each others morals?
It made me think of all those people that use the sacredness of marriage as an argument against allowing us queers to marry.
I look at Mitt Romney - ok married to the same woman for 42 years. Room to talk, I guess.
Perry - same woman same marriage. Ok, ditto.
Then there is Newt Grigrich - on wife number three - not so much room to talk in my opinion.
Wife number one 1962 to 1981 when Newt cheated on her and reportedly discussed divorce terms with her while she was in the hospital recovering from cancer.
He then married wife number 2 (woman he cheated with)
In 1993 he began an affair with the current Mrs. G.
Reconciled briefly with Mrs. 2 before leaving for good to divorce Mrs. 2 and marry Mrs. 3.
Now I ask you - what is sacred about any of these marriages?
And he is leading in the Iowa polls?
