Now, now. We're not allowed to go that far. Prop. 8 would beg to differ.

However, we are good enough to start our own shadowy societies to overthrow the world, apparently.

It's phrased a little differently now and explains more about the college program:

Quote:
Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free. Obama will encourage retiring Americans to serve by improving programs available for individuals over age 55, while at the same time promoting youth programs such as Youth Build and Head Start.

Has Hannity been around, or is too busy listening to What Becomes of the Brokenhearted on repeat and crying under his desk?

Don't get excited, think of the mayhem he could cause in the next 70-odd days. Iraq didn't take that long to be a disaster.

What do you mean? Iraq took decades of US foreign policy to become a disaster, even if there was never a single American boot on the ground it wouldn't erase US culpability in the destruction of Iraq.

Oh, ah, I wasn't being serious.

So at church today, my pastor said that God told him that history will vindicate President Bush, and he'll end up being one of our best loved and most successful presidents. At that point, I walked out. I'm pretty sure I'm done at this church.

I chat with God too. I'm just not dumb enough to say that God told me the worst president in U.S. history is going to be seen as one of the greats. On a side note, my pastor is African-American, and from what I've surmised by things he said today about Obama's victory, he voted for him. He said a lot of great things about the Civil Rights movement and MLK, and he criticized Dobson and his ilk for all the bullshit he gave Obama during the campaign, so I was happy about that. It's when he started getting partisan that I got pissed and left. I love politics but not in church. We've separated church and state for a reason.

Nothing a little anti-psychotic medication can't fix.

I literally laughed out loud when he said that. Then people looked at me funny, so my friends and I took that as our cue to leave.
