Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

The Texas house just voted 101-29 for an amendment to their state Constitution that would outlaw BOTH same-sex marriages and civil unions. This is getting absurd. I can somewhat understand and respect, though disagree with, people who think marriage is a religious designation reserved in the history of their church for men and women. But when you outlaw civil unions as well, you are simply living in a world with your head in the sand, and putting yourself on record as opposing the progressive march of human history towards tolerance and acceptance. Two or three generations from now there will be 101 families trying their best to hide and run away from the fact that their grandfather or grandmother voted to restrict same sex couples' legal rights.
