Emril too.
Is that why Emiril always had bandages on his fingers after the commercial break?

No.  Notice my last post was was Aug 2017.  The Board is getting weird...  Old posts are popping (pooping?) up frequently lately.

The board is acting up, but you really were the last one to post anything on this since august last year.

However, that does mean this thread is now sort of active again, by the mere act of querying why it showed up as active...

That is one of the coolest arguments I've read in years!  If you run for Congress, I'll vote for you if possible.  It does take a certain talent.

I suspect even in liberal-leaning Columbus, while I might get a pass on being gay, they're still unlikely to forgive being an atheist, alas.  And I can't bring myself to make the mouth-noises required to be nice to religion that politicians in this country have to.

Also, in person, I have no charisma.

However, were I somehow sent to the House, lip-readers watching C-SPAN could play bingo tracking my unheard remarks, usually along the lines of "Are you fucking serious?" or "If this clown is really representative of his/her district, remind me to never go there."

*Everyone* would get to enjoy me making the parliamentary inquiry, "Mr/Mme Speaker, is it a breach of rules to ask if my colleague from (wherever) is out of his fucking mind?"

I wouldn't last long in the House, but the YouTube clips would live on forever.  :D

Parliament is a real legislature, Congress is just elected lobbyists.

I suspect that an elected atheist might be the last barrier to overcome among voters.  Yet, whom would be more objective and logical?

People tend to forget that not long ago homosexuality was a crime and people were sent to prison for it. The film Victim dealt with the bigger crime of blackmailing homosexuals which in turn helped to get those laws overturned in Britain.
Whenever I hear someone say it's merely a choice I have to ask them why, if it was a choice would millions of people put themselves in the position of being sent to prison over love with someone of the same sex? Why would the homosexuals of the era be willing to subject themselves to viscious blackmailers and imprisonment? Doesn't sound much like a choice to me..  Here's the link to the film..
