Did the past two days somehow turn into some ridiculous vortex of bad for the whole world? I mean, really? There's the law that just got passed in Congress (go check out bonibaru's post about it, and hopefully you'll get as riled as I am. It's utterly ridiculous, and disturbing, and frankly -- shameful. The question of gay marriage -- no matter what your own personal religious views on it -- is a civil issue. To try and outlaw it on the basis of your personal religious beliefs is to undo the seperation of church and state. Furthermore an attempt to limit the sovereignity of the court is an attack of the system of checks and balances that support the entirety of our democracy.

In News of the Nif Related variety: My computer is flipping the fuck out. I may very well loose all of the documents on my c-drive which would, in reality, be...all of my documents. That wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't had like, a bajillion and a half WiPs that I was plugging away at *IN ADDITION TO* all the school work that I'll loose. But, hey! Lucky me! I can spend my whole Spring Break trying to reconstruct it! Woohoo! *bangs head against desk*

Also, it's snowing. This is unacceptable. Yesterday was gorgeous! I sat outside all day! I didn't wear a sweater! And now there are these misbegotten pieces of white cold wetness falling from the sky onto me!

*sigh* All I have is ramen and my DVD player. Oh, and rice. I have enough money for my train fare tommorow, and a load of laundry, but beyond that I am entirely broke. I haven't had a cigarette in three days, coffee or chocolate in longer.

I just want to go home.

Would you be amazed if I told you that I'd written happy Clark/Lex yesterday? I swear.

Woah. I just went and got all my "representatives" addresses. I'm betting a written letter is more appreciated than email. I've been meaning to do this for a long while. The problem is my house rep is Phil Crane who is pretty bad. He spoke to my high school Gov't & Politics class and his views on the world scared me even then.

I checked out the congressional thingie you posted. It turns out that isn't the only (or the worst) such act before Congress to "stop judicial activism" (i.e., roll back time to an America where religous conservatism overrides constitutional rights).

Check out these ten acts (posted on a conservative site).

Some of these don't just stop gay marriage. They would permit a return school prayer, invalidate Roe v. Wade, allow anti-sodomy laws, etc. And if Supreme Court justices fight some of them, the act allows them to be removed for that offense. Heeeeee!

I'm disgusted by the acts, but I can't take them very seriously because they are just so religously conservative and unconstitutional that they seem ridiculous.

AFAIK, the law hasn't been passed. It's just been proposed in the house of representatives.
