(no subject)

yay, horrible nightmares of being chased by a serial murderer police captain. Lots of blood, lots of straightrazors, lots of huge men in blond wigs and beige dresses.
All in a parking structure.
Oh, and I was also an overweight middle-aged black man.

This may, however, be why my foot has been killing me in the mornings- jogging in your sleep is never comfortable.

Oh, and:

October 12, 1998

Six years ago today, Matthew Shepard was murdered for being homosexual.

What will you do to end the silence?

6 years.

Today, I'd ask you all to take a moment to remember that our current president considered it to be in good taste to schedule an Official Defense of Marriage Week (or whatever neocon propaganda title was assigned to it) on the fifth anniversary of the deprivation of someone of both life and liberty for the means by which he chose to pursue happiness.

Again: if you're planning to vote, I'd ask that you try to find an explanation for an act of outright murder- and for the current President's response to it. If you cannot find one, I'd ask you to answer the following question:
Based on the response detailed above (which seems an affirmation of the right to marriage overwhelming the right to life, liberty, & the pursuit of happiness, as we were all endowed with by our Creator), based on the USA PATRIOT act (which doesn't violate the First Amendment in letter, but certainly bends the spirit over a nearby sofa and rabbits away on it), based on the unending detention of US Citizens who are 'prisoners of war' in Guantanamo Bay (Which violates the right to a speedy trial), based on the 'faith-based charities' initiative (which violates the separation of church and state): can we trust our current president's policies to preserve and defend our rights when they are exercised in ways he disagrees with, or can we trust our current president to continue his policy of commemmorating spit-on-a-hate-crime-victim's-grave week?
