Court: No Ten Commandments in Courthouses
There goes my homey, hatin' on my cheese!
This is a No Quesophobe Zone.
Yesterday we had a US Supreme Court decision that for all practical purposes ended private property in America in any meaningful sense.
Until a federal Constitutional amendment happens, we're stuck with land theft, make that eminent domain. So what can an individual do about it?
and I'm a republican Libertarian.

If pettiness was feathers, Sneddon would be an ostrich.
Shouldn't there be an injunction against the DA's office until they can guarantee that all passports will be accounted for at all times?
The Supreme Court today effectively expanded the right of local governments to seize private property under eminent domain, ruling that people's homes and businesses -- even those not considered blighted -- can be taken against their will for private development if the seizure serves a broadly defined "public use."
In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.

I am a drifter. I go where life leads, which makes me usually a very calm and content sort of person. That or thoroughly apathetic. Usually I keep on doing whatever I'm doing, and it takes something special to make me change my mind. What Video Game Character Are You?
I swear to Gawd, my mother figures out the least retarded way of doing things, and then does the EXACT OPPOSITE of that.
You Are 28% Femme and 72% Butch!

20 - 39% Femme - You are likely male, or the toughest, scariest lesbian around.
0 - 19% Femme - You are 100% male. You make cowboys look like pussies.

|THE Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has criticised the new web-based media for �paranoid fantasy, self-indulgent nonsense and dangerous bigotry�. He described the atmosphere on the world wide web as a free-for-all that was �close to that of unpoliced conversation�. |
Dear God, NOT unpoliced conversation! Anything but unpoliced conversation!
Here's an excerpt:
"Waldo shot past the pharmacy and barged uninvited into the examination room in the radiation oncology department, where -- according to an anonymous caller -- a doctor was examining a cancer patient," the paper's columnists wrote. "According to the caller, Waldo wouldn't leave, and the startled doctor and patient felt obliged to flee the room."

|Question to those who want to close Gitmo:|
How does it make sense to blame the place for what happened there, instead of the people making the decisions?
Oh, wait. I forgot. This is the same crowd that blames guns, not murderers, for murders.
An object, be it a place or a tool, is not a vessel in which wrongdoing is contained.

Read the saga of poor Testicles (pronounced like 'Pericles') here.
“Testaclese” tipped the scales when he approached the university Provost, Edward J. Kavanagh, outside the student union. Apparently taking him/it for a giant mushroom, Provost Kavanagh cheerfully greeted him. But when Testaclese presented him with an honorary award as a campus “Penis Warrior,” the stunned official realized that it was no mushroom. After this incident, which was recorded on videotape, the promoters of P-Day were ordered to cease circulating their flyers and to keep Testaclese off campus grounds. Mindful of how school officers had never once protested any of the antics of Vagina warriors, the P-warriors did not comply. The Testaclese costume was then confiscated and formal charges followed.
