Facebook coloring your world…

Is Facebook  running psychological  tests again?   If so,  the 26 million people who overlaid their profile photos with a rainbow filter participated.

I was not one of them.  I visit Facebook only to keep up with my far-flung friends and family and see all the adorable pictures of their children.

Ben Carson vs SPLC…

leave a comment »

Why does anyone with half a brain put any faith in the Southern Poverty Law Center?   It is a Leftist front pretending to be concerned about extremism,  but somehow it can never manage to find any evidence of it on the Left.   Christians and conservatives apparently make the list without effort.

All Dr. Ben Carson had to do was say something traditional about gay marriage and — presto! —  he’s an extremist!   If SPLC had any  principles,  it would certainly place itself on its  extremist watch  list.   But the Left’s only principle is to win,  isn’t it?

UPDATE:  Dr. Carson is  firing back.

SCOTUS watching…

NRO’s  Bench Memos  is the best place to go for updates on the gay marriage issues currently before it.

Politico also has a good piece up  on it here.   Jason Lee Steorts has an interesting  reminder about legal standards and public standards.

Evolution complete…

His Oneness made  marriage a question.  I suspect Obama’s principles are so flexible that he is comfortable with any definition of marriage if need be,  but  his shift  was  driven by money,  not ideology.   Two-thirds of us see the move as  a political ploy.   I hope that many of us don’t re-elect him.

Of course big media  was enthralled  with the new position.   Now the Democrat Party platform planners are going to place this  position as a  plank in the platform,  regardless of how much vulnerable Dems   want to run away from the matter.

More chicken!

The boycott of Chick-fil-A was  an epic fail.   The chain set a sales record on Wednesday when thousands of people turned out to support the company.  In my area, when the store sold out in one city,  the remaining  people in line drove to an adjacent city to purchase a tasty lunch.  Of course,  big media will provide many times more coverage of thew handful who show up at the franchise to have kiss-ins.

Cook County crooks…

leave a comment »

The Thomas Moore Law Center has intervened to protect traditional marriage in Cook County, Illinois.   Read about the perfidy  of elected government officials to sneak gay marriage in withut the knowledge,  much less the voted consent, of its citizens.
