So, we should stop basing our laws on some unproven book written thousands of years ago? Sounds great.

I’m sorry, but even if Barack Obama WERE Muslim, what would it matter?

Questions too heavy for my brain

So, let me preface this by saying that I don’t necessarily think we should divide the country, and that I realize that a lot of laws are managed on a state level, But I wonder…

Has the US gotten too large to be effectively managed by a central government? The population is so huge, and it’s no wonder that certain groups are going to feel marginalized. You cant make the majority happy without stepping on someone else’s toes. Is there a way to really manage a nation that’s so large? I’ve seen companies that have gotten way too big and had to break apart into subsidiaries, and those were no where near the massive scale of our country.

On the other hand, I wonder, if the country did happen to break up into say, three or four smaller countries, would the economy of each country collapse completely? Would each section be able to support itself independently? And also, what about defense? Could each section protect itself from outside enemies, or would we be defenseless?

I need someone smarter than I am to explain this to me.

Maybe I should post this to reddit.

According to HuffPost, Santorum is winning in at least two out of three states. I mean, vote how you want, but, good grief, what are you thinking?

I’m seriously hoping that most of this is from trolls trying to secure a win for Obama.

No one could blame American women here if they all suddenly decided to leave the country saying, ‘That’s it, we’re fucking out of here, this is complete bullshit.’ There has been a debate on contraception in the last week so ludicrous that part of me was wondering if it was in fact a performance art piece, to make us all question how terrible it would be to live in a country where something like this could actually happen.

Lamar Smith, the lead sponsor of SOPA, is at it again!
A U.S. House committee has approved a bill sponsored by Lamar Smith that would force Internet Service Providers to to keep track of and retain their customers’ information — including your name, address, phone number, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, and temporarily-assigned IP addresses.
ISPs would collect and retain your data whether or not you’re accused of a crime.
The bill was shamelessly dubbed ‘Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act’ despite having nothing to do with child pornography.  
Rep. Zoe Lofgren of California, who led Democratic opposition to the bill said, “It represents a data bank of every digital act by every American [that would] let us find out where every single American visited Web sites.”
Sign the petition to tell Congress not to pass the bill. Texas, repeal this man already!

So I’m not big on PACs but a group on Reddit started one called TestPAC and super awesome dude Eddie Belaval (who was one of the camera ops on MLaL) is the head media advisor. He asked me a couple of days ago if I would be willing to help, and at first I didn’t want to because it’s a PAC and even if it’s for good I really don’t like that kind of politics, but he told me their first project is beating Lamar Smith. I’m in. If anybody wants to help get the above pictured asshat out of office, clicky that link and help out TestPAC anyway you can. 
Sign that petition and then go help TestPAC!

Everyone should at the very least just go read what they are doing. help if you can or want.
