Facebook Ultimatums and You!

Have you ever been the victim of a facebook ultimatum?  Yes.  You have.  Trust me.  A facebook ultimatum is the lowest form of chain mail and they are generally about America/American military, cancer, animal abuse/child abuse or Jesus and they give you two choices; agree with me or you’re a bad person.  They’re generally just a big ego stroke with an additional passive-aggressive implication, accusation or fuck-you thrown in for good measure.

Sounds like a cheesy b-movie, right?  No.  According to Bob Morris the Girl Scouts are trying to turn your sweet little girls gay, feminist and/or communist.  Further more, they apparently don’t promote Christianity enough.  Bob, who is a Republican (surprise!), claims that those adorable little cookie peddlers have a hidden agenda of subverting our precious American values.

There is a vegetarian anecdote that implies that a human baby (presumably weened) will chose to eat an apple over a live rabbit every time, thus “proving” that we were meant to be vegetarians.  One thing that this anecdote fails to take into account is the fact that carnivorous (and omnivorous) toddlers of the animal kingdom rarely do their own hunting and killing.  In nature, more times than not, the carnivorous youth are provided with their meals (dead and ready to consume) by their parents.  If this anecdote is making an argument on behalf of human instinct, then I suggest a control group of  baby’s who are provided with a choice between an apple and a dead rabbit that has been cleaned, cooked and covered in barbeque sauce…

Same Sex Marriage: The Final Frontier of Civil Rights?

Posted in Gay, Political with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 5, 2010 by Marco

Americans have made great strides in equality since our nation’s birth in 1776.  The abolishment of slavery, woman’s liberation and the civil rights movement are undeniably among our greatest accomplishments as a people.  And while a woman’s right to equality in the workplace and a black man’s right to vote are now universally accepted tenants of American culture, it’s easy to forget that these rights weren’t always so obvious to many.  For example, prior to the Civil War, blacks were not permitted to marry in all areas of the United States, due to an ill-conceived notion that they were somehow less than human.  Likewise, mixed race couples could not engage in a legally recognized union as late as 1967 in sixteen states.  In regards to both of these examples, political and religious opposition was prevalent, in fact, it was not at all uncommon to hear opponents of both issues label them as “Evil”, or “Against God” but today we look back on these issues and ask “What were they thinking?”.  We, modern Americans, understand that marriage is a basic right and we should be free to marry as we see fit and be recognized as such.  …Or do we?
