#901: Hit-and-run comments.

I've got to get back to bed.

California to introduce "queer education" as part of curriculum of public schools. Don't want your eight-year-old to be taught the wonders of fisting and anal sex? Better homeschool.

I'm not entirely sure they can do this. The federal constitution defines how the Electoral College (EC) works. States, as far as I know, don't have the right or legal ability to circumvent that.

Although the article doesn't say so, I'm pretty sure this is a bunch of leftists trying to get this done. Leftists are the ones upset by the EC, primarily because "Al Gore won the popular vote!" but didn't have the EC votes, and anything that keeps a Democrat from winning is unfair!

(BTW, when the Electoral College puts a Democrat in the White House, most Republicans shrug and say, "Well, that's how the system works.")

The EC exists as a "check-and-balance" for the electoral system. It ensures that states with smaller populations still count. Eliminating the EC will just move campaigns to New York, California, Texas, and Florida, at the expense of smaller states, and it'll basically ensure that Demokrats run the country from now on. That's all it'll do.

Screw this crap. Politically-correct Valentine's Day gifts. Morons.

Detroit sucks. Here's why.

Welfare recipient drives stolen $50,000 truck to apply for benefits. Anything I'm likely to add to this is going to seem too "insensitive" for most people, so I'm just going to let it stand on its own. But you know I'm thinking it, so that's enough anyway.

"Thirty-something" workers are better. Big surprise.

As much as I would like to add more wisecracks commentary to this, I need to get to bed. See ya.
