Eddie Izzard “Circles” DVD
I’m very happy at the moment about recent political proceedings, hence the poll off to the right there. Already the Democrats want to raise the minimum wage to $7.25 (Â£3.79)! When I was working in Idaho, they only had to pay you 5.15 per hour. FIVE DOLLARS. For an hour of your hard work. And apparently that’s the current national requirement – so depressing.
Another plus: to find a better direction for Iraq. How long have we been waiting for that?
And Rumsfeld! RUMSFELD RESIGNED! I was in SHOCK when I heard that, and then positively overjoyed. I’ve no idea who the new guy is, but let’s hope for the best, eh?
Oregon defeated the “minors must notify parents before abortion” thingy. Very excited about that. (Please do not think that I am excited about abortions – I am excited about the OPTION for them, should one be in the position to need the option.) We also voted in lovely things like preserving land for parks and things, supporting schools, and supporting the library. I heart my liberal state.
Speaking of equal rights, some asshole company in Houston, Texas refused to do landscaping for a gay couple simply because they were gay, saying the company “choose[s] not to work for homosexuals.” How f’ed up is that? They were basically exercising their right to choose their clientele, but how is that not completely discriminatory? It makes me so upset that people think it’s okay to do that. I don’t agree with the threats (death, sodomy, etc.) being made against the family who owns the company, but I do think they are assholes and deserved to be called out on their discriminatory actions.
Oh, and Britney ditched Kevin.
