The last second saturday was quite an experience. As often as I am made to observe just how awesome my life/friends are, it hit a new height as after a pleasant afternoon gaming, I got to watch the children tear around the Rose's backyard hitting each other (and sometimes us) with foam swords. I discovered quickly once I had joined the fray that my ticklin' hand served as a much better weapon than the foam selections available.
And here it comes
. The above link points to an article on threesome, polyamorous
marriages. I have no doubt that we will start seeing more commentary along these lines, along with the Neo-Conservatives yelling "We told you so!" at the top of their lungs.
The thing is, the gay marriage debate needed to happen on its own merits. Yes, it likely did open the door for other kinds of non-traditional marriages, and now we can discuss these things on their
own merits, but using this as a reason to deny homosexuals the right to marry would be like denying women the right to vote because you're afraid felons might be next.
Speaking of Neo-Conservatives; to Rush Limbaugh, Dick Cheney, and Sarah Palin, please shut up. You have right-winged your political party into irrelevance. Your extremist ideology was roundly rejected in the last election. By continuing to embrace it, you are obliterating the miniscule remains of your credibility, and leaving the country without a credible advocate for small government, which at a time when deficit spending is reaching new records leaves the US much poorer.
