2009 RUSHES ON BY, AT LIGHTNING SPEED!

Oh goody, another weekend is here!

Yeah, so the California Supreme Court this week decided to uphold Proposition 8 and keep gay marriages illegal, yet 18,000 homo couples that already wed before that ballot measure was passed will get to stay married?! That makes no sense really, but okay?! Thanks?! Our local celebrities were out in full force the other day protesting the court's odd/unfair decision. I think slowly, but surely, the dominoes will fall, and gay marriage will make it through as younger generations become of age to vote. It really is only a matter of short time before it all comes to pass and all this twisted hurtful discrimination is done and over with. Sadly, hatred against homosexuality is still very real, thanks to religion, family upbringing, and general ignorant views about its "immorality". I mean, let's face it, heterosexuals are some of the BIGGEST IMMORAL CORRUPT people around, yet no one ever seems to point it out, because it's just plain cool and acceptable to be attracted to the opposite sex. All that sexual debauchery/fornication at Lake Havasu and Spring Break in general is fine and dandy, because it's a bunch of hot young straight dudes and chicks in their prime! No Bible to pull out or passages to quote here, because these awesome straight peeps are living normal healthy lives and will someday get married and procreate! Because Lord knows, the human species is so worth continuing right?! We're just so fucking great at taking care of the environment and each other! GOOD JOB HUMANITY! F*CK OFF. LOLOLOL! I like this blogger's post on the subject. Worth taking a look at.

This week marks the 72nd anniversary of the completion of the world's most famous and beautiful bridge, the Golden Gate! YEEHA! I've posted about this magnificent structure before, and never cease to find it fascinating. If you have never been to/seen this wonder in person, it is one of those things to do before ya die, and ironically it IS the last thing many people jump off of before they DIE! AHAHAHAHA! It's gorgeous in pictures, but something else up close. It's pretty darn big I say, and breathtaking. I've walked on the bridge before, but only midway; I'll have to traverse the whole damn thing next time or something. It is beautiful during the day, and wondrously lit up at night too, if the freakin' fog clears up long enough. Hard to imagine that at one time there was no Golden Gate, for it seems like it's been there forever, a worldwide symbol of San Francisco. How did they ever even build something so monstrous?! TRULY AMAZING HUMAN ACHIEVEMENT. Sadly, people love committing suicide off this thing, and the fall into the cold cement-like icy shark-infested waters below is not pretty. EEK!

Nice to see Sonia Sotomayor nominated to the highest court in the land. A Puerto
Rican too! Cool deal. I'd love to visit Puerto Rico someday. They say it's beautiful there. And the men of course; a hearty gorgeous mix of African and Spanish blood and they got huge pingas! Puerto Rico has old OLD buildings. It was one of Spain's very first settlements when Columbus and the other killers came over in the late 1400s. They wiped out all the natives and thus began the importation of African slaves. Then Spain lost it in 1898, and it's been a U.S. territory ever since. Weird! Odd! Bizarre!

Over and out! Hasta pronto...

The ruling on Prop 8 doesn't make ANY sense at all. So, they said that getting married is an inherent right, then it's okay to put the right up for the people to vote on. BUT, even though it was a right taken away the people who were married BEFORE it was declared invalid are still married although it's been outlawed. Weird.

I've seen the Golden Gate many, many times when I was stationed in SF when I was in the Coast Guard. It is a magnificent example of man's engineering skills. It's beautiful in it's utility.

Viva Sotomayor!

That was a good link you provided there with Consonant and between him and you I am all riled up here myself. It is cetainly unfair and twisted but at least there are so many people saying that as opposed to it being unrecognized as such. It'll come around.

The Golden Gate is a beautiful bridge, says he who has a 'thing' for bridges. And yes, I have driven over it - never walked.

Finally, Ricky Martin is a fine looking dude!

If you ever have the desire to get royally depressed, the documentary "The Bridge" is a well made but disturbing chronicle of a year of suicides off the GG Bridge. They set up cameras and filmed those who jumped and then told their stories. It did feel like someone taking photos of people being beaten without ever intervening for fear of losing "the story".

I have seen the bridge and you're right, it's beautiful. Did you know that the people that maintain the bridge start painting it from one end to the other, and as soon as they are finished, they start over again. The sea air is extremely harsh on paint, and they want the bridge to remain beautiful. It's a constant process. I wonder how many jumpers the workers have seen over the years......

Being a descendant of Puerto Rico, I must say... we do have large PINGAS. LMAO.

Hey... if you ever find yourself in New York, come take a visit with this Boricua. I'll give you a run-down of my culture and teach you a few New Yorican words...

Besitos

PS. I hope Sotomayor does us proud.
