  1. The Argentine Senate committee DIDN'T "nix" the marriage bill, they don't have the power to do that. They simply recommended by a vote of 9 to 6 that the full Senate reject it. Five others voted to promote a Civil Unions bill instead. The Senate will still debate the bill and vote on it. It's not over yet.

  2. Thanks, TAMPAZEKE; I understood that as well, but it was confusing from my wording. So much for attempting to post in advance in the middle of the night. I clarified.

  3. On President Obama's creating recession for revenge of racism.

    Oh, Rush, you're on to us! Yes, indeed, that's the pure evil of this genius, Barak Obama! To start the recession, first he got a madman elected as president in 2000 through a stolen election. Yes. Obama is a true fiend. But wait! Then he stole a second election for his "Kenyon candidate." But that wasn't all.

    This fiend actually coerced a bunch of bankers to make ridiculous loans to people who could never pay them back. The man is pure evil, Rush, and than heaven's you've figured it out.

    And, even worse, he convinced Wall Street to buy these speculative securities like there was no tomorrow. See, by putting the Republicans in total power from 2000-2006, and ensuring that nothing got done when Democrats nearly ruined his evil plan by getting slim majorities in 2007 and 2008, America's fate was sealed.

    You are such a genius Rush. It's amazing more people don't listen to you.

  5. Madonna's feature debut was "Filth and Wisdom," which came out two year ago -- just wanted to point that out.

    Also, Rush is just trying to get attention. Again. And here we are.

  6. Madonna does not consider Filth & Wisdom a "feature", for whatever reason.

  7. Why are there no pictures to be found of the Chicago Black Gay Pride?

  8. Q: Funny you should ask! I searched for some and found only a handful of about five not-so-great shots that were more like someone's friends lined up. I'm wondering if the South Side event is really small, or if I am not looking in the right places. I did blog searches, etc.

  9. @ CRAIG: nicely done mate, nicely done.
