And here we goooo…

It was only a matter of time before SOMEONE and their ignorant, right-wing bullshit mentality had something to say against transgendered Chaz Bono's inclusion on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars, and that lucky person seems to be Dan Gainor, VP of Business & Culture at the Media Research Center, which "seeks to bring balance to the news media and prevent liberal from undermining traditional American values."

Yeah. Seriously.

(We personally think someone's just all pissy because his last name sounds like GAY.)

Virginia Lawmakers Protest Pride Flag Outside Of Federal Reserve Bank!

virginia-lawmakers-protest-pride-flag-outside-of-federal-reserve-bank

Ugh! We're sorry, but what the EFF is wrong with people?!

Virginia delegates Robert Marshall and Riley E. Ingram have reportedly written letters of protest to Jeffrey Lacker, the president of the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank, because they're unhappy that they've put up a rainbow flag in honor of Gay Pride Month, and want it removed!

The bank originally chose put up the flag per the request of its LGBT group, Prism, and to reflect their commitment to diversity!

However, Marshall, Ingram, and the conservative members of the Virginia General Assembly, have struck back, and assert that homosexuality “adds significantly to illness, increases health costs, promotes venereal diseases, and worsens the population imbalance relating to the number of workers supporting the beneficiaries of America’s Social Security and Medicare programs.”

Marshall's letter continues:

“I do not believe that a celebration of ‘gay pride’ has anything to do with the mission of the Federal Reserve under the Federal Reserve Act passed by Congress. This is a celebration of a behavior that is still a class six felony in Virginia. How can the American people trust the judgement of the Federal Reserve as an institution when its spokesperson celebrates an attack on public morals?”

Unbelievable.

We think a better question might be, "How did such an ignorant man find his way into a position where he has a platform to spew that kind of hatred and nonsense?"

Absolutely deplorable! And so sad, especially in this day and age!

We commend the Federal Reserve Bank for their commitment to LGBT rights, and sincerely hope that they will not let this disgusting behavior affect or change their view on the matter!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!

And to all of the aforementioned members of the Virginia General Assembly, as well as anyone else promoting hatred and intolerance…HAPPY PRIDE MONTH, bitches! We're not going ANYWHERE! Xoxo!

Palin Supporters Try To Amend Wikipedia Page On Paul Revere With Her Version Of Events!

palin-supporters-try-to-amend-wikipedia-page-on-paul-revere-with-her-version-of-events

It was only a matter of time!

Last week, Sarah Palin graced us all with her fascinating re-interpretation of what happened during Paul Revere's midnight ride, which apparently involved ringing bells and "warning the British," and we realized that we weren't sure what we were more afraid of: the fact that she will most likely run for President or the fact that there are many people who would actually vote for her!

Unfortunately, the former Governor of Alaska's supporters are already hard at work proving our speculation right, because they've apparently flooded Wikipedia page of Paul Revere, and are attempting to RE-WRITE history so Miz Palin's version of events is accurate!

Ha!

Check out the discussion between the website's editors and Palin fans:

In the article on Paul Revere, someone has added false information in an effort to support Sarah Palin's FALSE claims about Paul Revere.
"Accounts differ regarding the method of alerting the colonists; the generally accepted position is that the warnings were verbal in nature, although one disputed account suggested that Revere rang bells during his ride.[8][9]" This must be removed as it is a LIE designed to mislead. dj

Dajames (talk) 14:46, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

A lie? If you follow Wikipedia's rules, we must maintain a WP:NEUTRAL position, representing the mainstream position as well as disputed versions. I think the addition represents this fairly — the mainstream position is that Revere's warnings were verbal, but there are differing accounts that the warnings were done with bells — with two sources: WDHD television plus a live interview, with a highly influential US politician relating these facts.–

Tomwsulcer (talk) 14:50, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Done. Thank you, I removed the content not backed by a reliable source. –CutOffTies (talk) 14:52, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

I kindly remind people that it's not our job here at Wikipedia to decide what's true, but to report what reliable sources say, such as the LA Times, WDHD TV in Boston, numerous others. And they quoted an American politician saying that bells were used. –Tomwsulcer (talk) 15:09, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Tomwsulcer - You should be kindly reminded that it’s not your job to debase Sarah Palin’s wiki page with (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Sarah_Palin) your version of the occurrence for political reasons. The left leaning bias on Wiki is well known, but these types attacks are over the top.

Mk 71.228.77.211 (talk) 20:08, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

It's not the LA Times that's questionable as a reliable source, it's Palin herself. Even if the Times (& others) quoted her accurately, her off-hand, poorly-informed view doesn't belong here, per WP:UNDUE, and I have reverted.

Hertz1888 (talk) 15:30, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Sarah Palin is a former governor of Alaska as well as a presidential candidate of one of the two national parties in the United States. Her account of Paul Revere's famous ride has achieved national attention from most mainstream media — LA Times, CNN, you name it. There are numerous reliable sources quoted her exact words on this subject. This article has HUGE attention (55K readers in one day) as a result. Clearly, there should be some mention given its obvious importance. And I remind people, kindly, that it's not up to us contributors to determine who is and isn't a "poorly informed view" and to try to determine truth. Rather, Wikipedia is about verifiability.

–Tomwsulcer (talk) 15:37, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Here's Palin's remark via the LA Times & CNN: Sarah Palin on Paul Revere's ride
It doesn't tell the reader looking for information on Paul Revere anything useful. Vice Presidential candidate, please.

Hertz1888 (talk) 15:44, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

I agree with Hertz's edit, also please read wp:RECENT for yet another reason why this has no place here. –CutOffTies (talk) 16:16, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Paul Revere may have rang some bells on his ride, but does any mainstream historian believe that Paul Revere had any intent to warn or scare the British in any way? I have never heard this, except from Palin. All accounts I have read say that Revere and Dawes were trying their best to avoid being noticed by the British, who would likely capture them immediately if found.

–Westwind273 (talk) 15:49, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

The Lexington church apparently was one which rang its bell. [[4]]. Is all this of any great import at all? Collect (talk) 21:18, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Ha! Oh maaaaan.

This is just HIGHlarious!

Frankly, we're of the viewpoint that pretty much anything that comes out of Sarah Palin's mouth should be ignored and/or FORGOTTEN as quickly as possible, so throwing her 'Drunk History' version of events onto that man's Wikipedia page seems pretty pointless!

But hey! At least it was good for some LOLz!

What do U think? Should Palin's version of events be available for slacker high school/college kids to use as a source when writing last-minute papers?

Oh, This Is Too Good! Social Conservatives Declaring War On The Word "Gay!"

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitik

It never ceases to amaze us how extensively, and with the use of what can be confused to be 'logic,' that people can find ways to justify their bigotry.

Check out this pretty HOriffic clip from The Awakening conference for social conservatives this past weekend, which took place at Liberty University in the ironically-named Lynchburg, VA, during which panelists try to reject the term 'gay' and attempt to hide their deep-rooted, dispecable homaphobia in some nicely-worded, intelligent sounding ring-wing bullshiz that ultimately ends up making no sense (above).

For example, the Young Conservatives of California's Ryan Sorba claims:

"You're not an abstract consciousness inhabiting some impersonal body."

Really? Because what he's describing sounds pretty much like what most Christians would consider a soul! Didn't realize we weren't supposed to have those!

Way to go, buddy!

Perhaps it's about time you try and re-tool your argument to actually make sense, instead of trying to just make it sound as though it's intelligent, and therefore, logical?

Just saying!

Ugh! Mike Huckabee Slams Natalie Portman For Being Pregnant And Unmarried!

mike-huckabee-slams-natalie-portman-for-being-pregnant

Unbelievable! Do you think he even realizes how offensive and ignorant he sounds?

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee recently lashed out at the pregnant and engaged Natalie Portman, because he thinks that she's setting a bad example for single moms-to-be in the United States!

He says:

"People see a Natalie Portman who boasts, 'We're not married but we're having these children and they're doing just fine.' I think it gives a distorted image. It's unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out-of- wedlock children. Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can't get a job, and if it weren't for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. And that's the story that we're not seeing."

Okay, SERIOUSLY?!

Let's ignore the fact that she ISN'T a single mother, she's ENGAGED for just a moment, because it doesn't matter anyway!

What's distorted, buddy, is your perception of reality if you can go ahead and make the assumption that most single parents - which, AGAIN, is NOT THE CASE WITH NATALIE PORTMAN AND HER FIANCE - are not only poor and uneducated, but incapable of raising their children because they're not protected by the sanctity of marriage.

How about all of the 'traditional' families that rely on government assistance?

Singling out an educated, successful young woman for as preposterous reason as this is truly just twisted. Ugh.

Thoughts??
