Oh, so now that the EPA finally said Global Warming is bad we should panic....right?

A Christmas Eve Call to Catholic Action

I found this over at Farmboyz and had to share it with you, although I'm not Catholic, nor church going I think that the premise here is exactly the sort of noise that the Catholic Church needs to hear.

Will you please consider sending this call to Catholic action to all your Catholic friends and relatives?

Did you know that the mistreatment of women, married men and gay men by the Catholic bishops is really the same issue?

I began to realize this while thinking about why the struggle for gay equality in America seems to be failing.

Recent losses in California, Maine and New York have left gay activist leaders arguing about what exactly went wrong. Those battles have, however, made clear the identity of an aggressive enemy of the gay community, the bishops of the Roman Catholic Church.

To please the Pope, the American Catholic bishops have pooled financial resources to overcome marriage equality. They have threatened the cessation of social services and have bound their flock to the belief that God demands that marriage be exclusively between one man and one woman. They have mandated the taking up of collections to support their battle against marriage equality.

These bishops also believe that women are not good enough in the eyes of God to be ordained priests. These bishops also believe that married men are not good enough in the eyes of God to be ordained priests. These bishops also believe that gay men are not good enough to be ordained priests (a particularly curious belief given the huge gay portion of their own ranks).

Now is the time for Catholic women, married men, gay men, and all their Catholic friends and relatives to band together and to end this nonsense. You have the ability to gain your rights if you will realize that these bishops no longer speak for God in this matter. They have gone astray and are misleading you. In your hearts you know this to be true.

You can rectify this situation by holding back your financial support until women, married men and gay men all have equal access to the Catholic priesthood. Do you understand how critically important your financial support is to the life of the Roman Catholic Church in America? Do you understand what would happen if, as a group, you turned off the financial faucet? There would be a panic among those bishops and soon they would find a way to announce that the Holy Spirit has revealed a new truth; that women and married men and gay men deserve equal places in the church and are all worthy of the priesthood. The threat of bankruptcy can be a fast route to holy wisdom.

I am suggesting that on Christmas Eve, all Roman Catholics in America refrain from giving money when the collection basket is passed, and that you continue that restraint until your God-given rights are granted.

I am also suggesting that you consider placing a small pebble in the collection basket as a clear message to your bishops. Your priests who are torn between believing in your equality and their sworn obedience to the bishops might send those pebbles to those bishops just as they do a good portion of the money you routinely give them. And remember, those bishops have already cast the first stone. All you would be doing is politely returning it to them.

The Roman Catholic Church in America is at a crossroads. There will soon be either a healthy enlightenment or a rapid withering. Catholic women, married men and gay men who understand that their bishops are speaking for the Pope rather than for Jesus Christ in this matter will save their Church if they act together. Christmas Eve is the perfect time to start.

I am urging you to refrain from financial support as an act of love for your church. I do not want to see the Catholic Church destroyed by a generation of bishops who are confused and in need of your intervention. They will someday thank you for doing what they could not do.

Will you please consider forwarding this call to Catholic action to all your Catholic friends and relatives?

The Secrets of Isis - through the eyes of a 40 year old!

I love Netflix, I really do. We got rid of cable last year and instead signed up for Netflix. I've never been a big "renter" instead I've always been a buyer instead, my collection is just north of 500 DVD's right now. But I do love me some Netflix.

I've been watching all sorts of stuff....some Bob Newhart, some David Lynch, a few Alfred Hitchcocks, some Star Trek and everything in between. Whenever someone mentions a movie I'll make a note and add it to my queue so I can catch it and see what all the fuss was about. I also like that you can follow a star or director throughout their career.....A friend of mine has the "Bette Davis" and "Joan Crawford" queues and other friends have an Academy Awards Queue. Every Oscar season they'll choose a year and watch all of the Oscar winners of that year as a preface to the Awards Ceremony.

I've been trying to relive my youth lately by watching TV programs that I should have watched when I was a kid but didn't.

I just got Secrets of's so much fun to watch early 70's TV, especially programming like this. It's campy, it's unintentionally funny and it makes you wonder exactly what you were thinking when you were watching it and you were so in love with these programs.

Here's what I took away from watching the first disc of Isis.

She was so condescending...always looking down on people and she had that smirk on her face while she was capturing people. Hell at least Wonder Woman was serious about her job.

Why the fuck doesn't her skirt move? EVER!!!

Why does Isis always tell Cindy that she should 'listen to your inner voice' Is she intentionally trying to drive Cindy crazy? Isis is not a good child psychologist.

Interesting how Cindy was usually absent just enough that people thought that she might be Isis and yet they never thought that Andrea could be here.

What is up with that freaking rhyming all the time. Did her powers only work if she spoke in iambic parameter?

Ever notice that when she flies her hair doesn't move?

Why was people getting "stuck" a common means of incapaciting people, first it was a log then a rock.

OMG - seriously that was just a guy in a big bear suit, guess they didn't have a huge special effects budget.

WTF was that limb doing in the middle of a the side of a "cliff" covered with huge rocks - oh yeah that's right, it's pinning that kids leg down and trapping him.

Wow, that is a young Scott Baio.

I think Brian Cutler is the reason that I like guys with mustaches...well him and Magnum P.I.

I love how they so subtly set up the plot by just barely freaking out poor Cindy - no wonder she heard voices in her head!

So what was your favorite TV program from when you were a kid? Have you watched it again as an adult?

Did Facebook get hacked?

Why is Facebook telling me, on my Wall page that they need my email address.

This greeted me this evening when I was checking my page. It really makes me wonder what's going on with Facebook lately? It has really been acting up, not loading pages, giving multiple errors while attempting to comment on a post or just giving blank pages with an error "your account is unavailable."

I'm really starting to lose interest in Facebook since it's become so unreliable lately. Now that they're asking me for an email address when I know darn well that I sort of had to use an email address to get an account it makes me even more uncomfortable - almost makes me think they got hacked - because I'm very responsible in my app loading and don't click on just everything that comes my way.

What's going on Facebook? You were a lot of fun, but now you're just like that clunker that I tried to turn in for cash a few months back - just waiting to fall apart.

'To Wong Fu' I blame U for missing the National Equality March

Over the weekend hundreds of thousands of queers activists marched in the National Equality March on Washington DC, and I was supposed to be there. For many months Join the Impact Chicago has worked on organzing a massive project to get as many Chicago LGBT activists as they could to DC for the March.

They successfully sold out 4 busses in a short period of time and even had peole on a standby list. There were many many dedicated people looking forward to being involved in a piece of history, and I was looking forward to doing the same thing.

On Saturday evening we gathered in the shadow of the Art Institute, surrounded by feet high chain link barriers that had been put in place for the next mornings marathon. We signed in, talked with friends and got our "boarding passes" for the bus. I and several of my friends grabbed boarding passes for Bus #1. We loaded on our bus, found our "spots" for the 15 hour journey ahead of us and started imagining what lay in front of us. The day we had all been waiting for so long was here. The mood on the bus was electric, people were chatting, getting to know each other, make new friends. We were ignorant of the fact that the first stop we made on our long journey would also be our last.

Unbeknownst to us, the bus was having problems from the start, it was rattling and vibrating very badly - we just thought it was the road, and a few times along the way it seemed that the engine "cut-out" but it was never anything that stopped the bus. Some on the bus twittered jokingly that perhaps we should "enjoy them."

We happily watched several episodes of Maude and her dealings with racial tensions and kids playing doctor in the 70's, we watched Hocus Pocus with the Divine Miss M who had some nasty bucktheeth and were halfway through To Wong Fu, Thanks for everything, Julie Newmar" when it was time for a food break. The last big city sign I had seen on the side of the road was for Dayton/Toledo.

When we pulled into the Wyandot Ohio Turnpike Oasis, about 4 hours outside of Chicago, we had no idea that it was going to be our last stop. Apparently the bus had much larger problems than any of us had imagined as we waved goodbye to our friends on Bus #2 as we watched load up and continue on their journey. We all assumed that we would be right behind them, but as we sat hour after hour waiting for another bus, our dreams of making it to DC became dimmer and dimmer.

Several members of Join the Impact Chicago (JTIC), many who had worked tirelessly for months to organize this event, were on the bus with us. They handled this very difficult situation with tact, grace and professionalism beyond their years. They attempted to organize multiple modes of transportation - another bus, vans, rental cars, I'm sure even a cart pulled by a goat was considered, they tried to do everything possible when you're 400 miles from home and stuck in the middle of nowhere.

While we waited we tried to keep ourselves entertained. We played Boggle, we made new friends, we caught up with old friends, we chatted about everything under the sun, read books, joined voices in song, we even playing a rousing round of "Adult Duck Duck Goose" to keep our energy and spirits up. We consoled each other and kept filling our paper cups with caffeinated carbonated beverages from the self-serve fountains to keep us awake, cups we had gotten with our combo meals, when we thought that we were only going to be there for enough time to inhale a burger and some fries.

Somewhere around 2AM doubt started to arrive, we knew that we still had more than a 9 hour trip ahead of us once we got on a bus and we wondered aloud if we would really make it to DC. To raise our spirits, some lovely ladies pulled out a huge banner they had been carrying with them that said Civil Marriage is a Civil Right and started to unfurl it. Someone else grabbed a sign they were making for the rally and we all huddled behind it for an impromptu rally of our own, right there in the middle of the Food Court at the Wyandot Turnpike Oasis. We hugged each other, we cried a little bit, and we shouted "What do we want? Equal rights" just once, but it was enough!

We couldn't do more than that though because the posters that we had made from photographs of Harvey Milk taken by Jerry Pritikin more than 30 years ago, banners that we were supposed to carry stretched across the street as we walked in front of the White House, flags that we were to wave as we marched to the steps of the Capital, were all "stuck" in the storage compartment of our bus. Stuck, along with our dreams of making it to DC. We did keep our spirits high though because we knew that three other buses were on their way to DC to march with hopefully hundreds of thousands of other queers and straight allies.

At 3AM, JTIC told us that we had a drop dead time of 4AM for the buses to arrive and for us to potentially arrive in DC in time to make the rally portion, if not the march. Suddenly images started to swirl in our heads of the bus flying through the hills of Pennsylvania with someone on the phone with a direct line to Cleve Jones saying "Hold the rally for us" and crowds parting like the red sea as our bus navigated the streets of DC on two wheels just in time to drop us off in front of Lady Gaga addressing the crowd. We needed those images in our heads to make us laugh instead of cry, to console ourselves from what "could have been."

Sometime later, I can't recall exactly as many of us were sleep deprived and becoming delusional from drinking so much high fructose corn syrup, we held a group meeting. In that meeting we had one decision to make - When the bus arrives, do we continue our journey or do we head back to Chicago. On the first vote it was 24 votes to return to Chicago and 22 votes to continue on our journey - too close to call, and too close to say it was one way or another. Someone from the audience spoke up and said "Ok, now that we voted, we need to discuss why we we voted as we did." Impassioned speeches flew from our mouths of why we should continue our trek - or why we should abandon our dream and instead head back to Chicago and join others at the Solidarity Rally already scheduled for later that afternoon in Daley Plaza. After a few minutes of speeches, another vote was taken. It was an almost unanimous vote that once the bus arrived we would instruct the driver to take us back to Chicago.

Around 5:15 someone came over to our table and told us to start gathering our belongings, the bus would be arriving soon. We reluctantly cleared our tables, repacked our bags and started to reassemble ourselves into the protestors we had hoped to be that day. Some of us felt that if we didn't pack up, if instead we stayed put, perhaps we could still make it to DC, that somehow the Wyandot Turnpike Oasis had become our island of hope and that if we didn't leave we could continue on to our dream of marching in the National Equality March. But we knew it was a pipe dream. We packed our bags, we cleared our mess and we said goodbye to the janitors and food workers at the Oasis and loaded our bags and weary bodies onto the bus, to only return home.

As we settled into our seats a voice from the back of the bus piped up and said "Can I suggest that we don't watch any more movies about drag queens getting stuck in the middle of nowhere?" Everyone laughed and we settled in for a long ride home.

Dreams were shattered at the Wyandot Turnpike Oasis, but our spirits were not destroyed, if anything it made us all stronger! Our next stop was the Solidarity Rally at Daley Plaza!

Ukraine says Elton John is too old and too gay to adopt!

So in the news today was a story about how Elton John was going to adopt a Ukrainian baby that he met while touring a hospital for HIV+ children.

Apparently in the past he had said that he never wanted children, yada yada yada but after meeting this 14-month old baby he suddenly changed his mind and went all maternal. That was all the hubub late Sunday night and early into Monday morning....well that and Kanye is still an asshole and Serena Williams royally cussed out a cute little line guard.

But then around 11:45 this morning all hell broke loose when the Associated Press announced that the Ukrainian Family, Youth and Sports Minister said that Elton did not qualify to adopt because he was too old and WAY too gay! Apparently the Minister had seen Tommy and never forgave Elton.

Seriously though, the Ukraine has a law that says adopted parents must be within 45 years of the adoptee and Elton is 62, which means that instead he qualifies to adopt a 17 year old.....

What I find funny though is that the Minister that denied Elton was from the Family, Youth and Sports division of the what this guy is responsible for families, kids and the softball and bowling leagues?

He also said that Elton was way too gay because the Ukraine requires adopted parents to be married - and even though Elton married his partner David Furnish in 2005 - the Ukraine doesn't recognize same-sex marriage as a "real marriage" and are thus denying them the baby of their dreams.

But it raises a few questions though....did Elton really think the whole thing through or just thought that he was like Madonna and could adopt any little baby he wanted? Did he really think about the consequences of adopting a baby? The impact on his lifestyle? Or did he just say "Oh look, there's a baby, I want it." Sorta reminds me of an Edina Monsoon when she adopted that Romanian Baby.....hey Romania isn't that far from the Ukraine is it? They're just separated by Moldova - perhaps he just got his countries mixed up and thought he was on a TV show. Seriously though, how can you just throw out there that "oh I want to adopt a baby" it's not like "oh I want a blue car."

Personally, I don't get the whole 'gay men adopting babies' men are too narcissistic to have children.....that's why we're gay to start with....well that and we like to have sex with men!
Should I be excited or concerned that my pussy met me at the door with a mouse in his mouth?

And these were the thumbnails I could choose

I use a Tubemogul to upload my videos, not only does it allow me to upload my videos once and send out to all the sites I belong to - it also lets me choose the "thumbnail" that will represent the video.

When I uploade my Edgewater Dinner Crawl that was held on historic Bryn Mawr Avenue here in Chicago, I got to choose my thumbnail to associate with the video, and these were my choices:

Exactly what is happening to those clunkers in the "Cash for Clunkers" program?

Junked and Crushed Cars
Originally uploaded by dave_7
The Cash for Clunkers program has been a big hit, evidenced by the fact that the government had to pump an extra $1Billion into the program and that it's due to close just a few weeks after it opened.

Unfortunately my car doesn't qualify for the program - and really I don't want a new car and a new car note, but I've been wondering, what exactly is happening to all of those clunker cars that they're taking off the road?

I've been following up trying to determine, exactly what it is they're doing with those old cars and here's what I've been able to find out:

1) The dealership does something to the car to make it inoperable. Typically they drain the oil, replace it with Sodium Silicate (aka Liquid Glass) and then run the engine until it seizes and is no longer operable. That way they know the car will never run again.

2) Next they get all those cars in a row and head them off to the junkyard where the gas is drained and they compact the car into a cube that's about a foot square.

3) After they get enough of those, they haul them off to the industrial wood chipper where they're chopped up into itty bitty tiny pieces that are then recycled.

But what's happening after that? Where are all those resources going? What about all the metal that's in those cars? Who's getting the benefit of that?

A friend of mine suggested that through the Cash For Clunkers program the government is gearing up for war again, by stockpiling metal....say what? His theory is that all of those clunkers that they wanted to get off the road were huge behemoths that were weighted down by actual metal, chrome and other precious metals. That the government is reclaiming those metals through this program and replacing the cars with those made out of softer non-metal vehicles. Remember when Saturn came out how many years ago with their plastic cars? When was the last time you saw a chrome bumper?

Now Consumer Reports is saying that the government wants your appliances too! And we all know ovens are full of metal.

So what think you? Trying to reduce our need for foreign oil or getting ready for war? There's a conspiracy there somewhere, dontcha think? Plus there's been reports that 4 out of the top 5 selling cars are foreign made - so people aren't even supporting America.
