Thanksgiving bonus.

This year, I had one thing in particular to be grateful for: US Permanent Residency. In fact, the day after Thanksgiving, my actual green card arrived. No, it is not actually green, it's sort-of beige with lots of high-tech features. It does have some green bits, notably where it says PERMANENT RESIDENT CARD on the back. So that was an easy call for the traditional go-around-the-table of giving thanks. Fortunately, there were no truly nauseating givings of thanks, which was a relief.

Despite a change in venue this year — thanks Libba and Barry — we also continued last year's new tradition of following the Thanksgiving part with a much more entertaining, and far less serious round of Schadenfreudegiving: giving thanks for bad things that have happened to your enemies* (or people you don't really like very much, if you don't have a list of enemies like any normal person would). It's like lancing a little boil of bottled up vitriolic glee and having fun bubble out into the ether, taking the bad feelings with it. Somewhere between a serious confession and a good gloat.

Try it next year; you'll like it.

* Having let the kids get down from the table to bugger off and play video games, of course.

Oh, fuck off, Joe!

Apparently, Joe Lieberman thinks losing his committee chairmanship is "unacceptable." I think he should fuck right off to the political wilderness where he belongs. It will far easier to stick his tongue up his bff John's ass from there.

Hey, Mormons!

I hope you're proud of the Church of Latter Day Saints' (apparent, short-lived) victory on Proposition 8 in California. Because if you're not, WHAT THE FUCK HAVE YOU BEEN DOING FOR THE LAST FUCKING YEAR?. It's your damn church, you slack-jawed fuckwads. What kind of Christian takes away other people's marriages? Where does Jesus tell us to cause pain and misery to people we don't understand or like? Oh, yeah. He doesn't.

If you don't think that Prop. 8 should have passed, I sure as hell hope you're ashamed of your faith, withholding your tithes, and fighting to put your church back on the path of compassion where it belongs. Because right now, you're not just not doing good, you're actively doing evil.

Every member of the LDS I've ever met has been a decent, progressive, smart, thinking human being. Sure, one or two of them believe I'm going to burn in hell because their God made me gay, but that didn't stop them treating me like any other human being, and fiercely protecting my rights to believe that I'm entitled to go to hell on my on dime, smoking pole all the way.

Where the fuck were those people while their damnable church elders pumped money into a lying, deceitful, hateful campaign of intolerance?

Stand up, you cowards.

YES YOU CAN take your church back.
