Prop 8 is not "Religious Freedom"

On a couple of intersections in Rocklin today, I saw some people displaying signs in favor of Prop 8. The problem is that they are lying. They say that Prop 8 = Religious Freedom, and that Prop 8 = Parental Rights, and that Prop 8 = Freedom of Speech.

How do they justify any of these lies?

My theory is that they are religious zealots that base their position on the belief that Gay = Choice. Problem is that being Gay is not a choice. Moreover, even if it were a choice, so what?!  Just because someones religion says that being Gay is a sin, why would we want a law based on a religion. Isn't our country founded on Religious Freedom?

Anyone who can articulate their reason for supporting Prop 8 is encourage to comment here, as I would really like to know how someone can support Prop 8.

Sarah Palin thinks creationism should be taught in public schools

Who is Sarah Palin? Here's some basic background:

  • She was elected Alaska's governor a little over a year and a half ago. Her previous office was mayor of Wasilla, a small town outside Anchorage. She has no foreign policy experience.1
  • Palin is strongly anti-choice, opposing abortion even in the case of rape or incest.2
  • She supported right-wing extremist Pat Buchanan for president in 2000. 3
  • Palin thinks creationism should be taught in public schools.4
  • She's doesn't think humans are the cause of climate change.5
  • She's solidly in line with John McCain's "Big Oil first" energy policy. She's pushed hard for more oil drilling and says renewables won't be ready for years. She also sued the Bush administration for listing polar bears as an endangered species—she was worried it would interfere with more oil drilling in Alaska.6
  • How closely did John McCain vet this choice? He met Sarah Palin once at a meeting. They spoke a second time, last Sunday, when he called her about being vice-president. Then he offered her the position.7

This is information the American people need to see. Please take a moment to forward this email to your friends and family.

We also asked Alaska MoveOn members what the rest of us should know about their governor. The response was striking. Here's a sample:

She is really just a mayor from a small town outside Anchorage who has been a governor for only 1.5 years, and has ZERO national and international experience. I shudder to think that she could be the person taking that 3AM call on the White House hotline, and the one who could potentially be charged with leading the US in the volatile international scene that exists today.—Rose M., Fairbanks, AK

She is VERY, VERY conservative, and far from perfect. She's a hunter and fisherwoman, but votes against the environment again and again. She ran on ethics reform, but is currently under investigation for several charges involving hiring and firing of state officials. She has NO experience beyond Alaska. —Christine B., Denali Park, AK

As an Alaskan and a feminist, I am beyond words at this announcement. Palin is not a feminist, and she is not the reformer she claims to be. —Karen L., Anchorage, AK

Alaskans, collectively, are just as stunned as the rest of the nation. She is doing well running our State, but is totally inexperienced on the national level, and very much unequipped to run the nation, if it came to that. She is as far right as one can get, which has already been communicated on the news. In our office of thirty employees (dems, republicans, and nonpartisans), not one person feels she is ready for the V.P. position.—Sherry C., Anchorage, AK

She's vehemently anti-choice and doesn't care about protecting our natural resources, even though she has worked as a fisherman. McCain chose her to pick up the Hillary voters, but Palin is no Hillary. —Marina L., Juneau, AK

I think she's far too inexperienced to be in this position. I'm all for a woman in the White House, but not one who hasn't done anything to deserve it. There are far many other women who have worked their way up and have much more experience that would have been better choices. This is a patronizing decision on John McCain's part- and insulting to females everywhere that he would assume he'll get our vote by putting "A Woman" in that position.—Jennifer M., Anchorage, AK

So Governor Palin is a staunch anti-choice religious conservative. She's a global warming denier who shares John McCain's commitment to Big Oil. And she's dramatically inexperienced.

In picking Sarah Palin, John McCain has made the religious right very happy. And he's made a very dangerous decision for our country.

In the next few days, many Americans will be wondering what McCain's vice-presidential choice means. Please pass this information along to your friends and family.

Thanks for all you do.

1. Not to add duplicate information
2. "links to Facebook, YouTube, MySpace and Livejournal sites is perhaps a little more information than the average joe needs."
3. "You don't seem to have been given a proper welcome yet, so here it is:

Welcome...

My System


About / Overview

  • My System» At the very core, Web 2.0» has a trait of serendipity. The trick is to manage this serendipity, either mentally and/or physically. Personally, I need to touch and feel things (kinetic learner), so I make it physical, for each subject or topic, using My Template» and tying them together with My Annotated Tag Cloud (A-List»): High-level topics / tags, that are important to me, that are linked to individual documents, on that subject. Sort of like having a personal Wikipedia


Methodologies and Practices»

  • Two Modes: Consumer or Producer
  • Active Unfocused Mind, like is done for Magic Eye images, How to See 3D, For example.
  • Put things that seem like they may be useful into your mind's buffer cache.
  • Go with the Flow. Be flexible. Be Adaptive.
  • Do not compromise personal integrity
  • Develop and maintain a Vision.
  • Communicate well with others to the best of my ability. Be empathetic. Use reflective listening. Seek first to understand, prior to being understood.
  • Experience everything, including mistakes, learn from success and failure.
  • Get in, Act, Get out.
  • Learn/Know when to be creative, and when to conform.
  • Use Intuition, but realize that nothing is intuitively obvious, at least until you have taken the time to learn the Paradigm
  • Be Open, do not pre-judge
  • Do what works for you, but keep open-minded to incremental or dramatic changes that could actually be to your benefit. Try new things out once in a while
  • Think globally, Act locally. For example.
  • Sharpen the Saw, Use the Saw, Think of creative alternatives. On the topic of Sharpening the Saw... When is it worth it to step away to sharpen the saw? How do you know if you are in-fact sharpening the saw? How often should you sharpen the saw?
  • New? Find something new and interesting? Study it for a while. A "power study", if you will. Tagging as appropriate.


Implementation / Tools»

  • Use a single starting place, called A-List, full of links to My various subjects/topics. Essentially my "Annotated Tag Cloud", or High-level topics / tags, that are important to me, that are linked to individual documents, on that subject. Sort of like having a personal Wikipedia or "tactical knowledge" base.
  • Tag things as I come across them, e.g. using del.icio.us and ma.gnolia, and more...
  • Record/track various subjects/topics in Google Documents (using My Template»). This allows for a somewhat structured organic growth of my personal knowledge. These Google Documents have become the core of my personal knowledge base.
    • When time doesn't allow for update of these documents, for example, I use MyStickies, to annotate each document with a sticky or two [or three =:-) ].
    • Later, if appropriate, and as time allows, the content of these stickies can get added to the document.
    • There are different levels of publishing, depending on the content and on the reader. My personal notes are done with MyStickies and with "internal" sections of documents. Sometimes the Google Documents is a high enough level, at other times GooglePages is appropriate, and at other times My Blogs are appropriate.
    • Post new items via Ping.fm to various microblogs, blogs and/or statuses
  • Use "keyword" feature in Firefox-based browsers. For each of my topics in my "Annotated Tag Cloud" (personal Wikipedia), add a keyword, for quick re-entrance into that document for that topic/keyword. (how to activate keyword in Flock )


Does anyone know of any more tools that would be applicable to this System?


* my list of Alpha» high-level topics, a byproduct of My_System. Sort of like having a personal Wikipedia. Each new topic is started from a template kept at docs.google.com. Sometimes this topical document (e.g. Social») morphs (publishes elsewhere) e.g. on googlepages, my Word Press Blog, lilurl, jaiku'd, twitter'd, zoho, etc.

"Unix (officially trademarked as UNIX®, sometimes also written as Unix or Unix® with small caps) is a computer operating system originally developed in 1969 by a group of AT&T employees at Bell Labs including Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie and Douglas McIlroy. Today's Unix systems are split into various branches, developed over time by AT&T as well as various commercial vendors and non-profit organizations." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UNIX
