Its been awhile since the elections wound down. Enough time for the future commander in chief to grow himself a pair:

So SE++, what have you done in the month since this man was elected?

Maybe you're Trying to hide your personal finances from the federal government:

Maybe you're carving out your niche in the State Department:

Maybe you're still steamed over Prop 8:

Or maybe you're just yearning for another thread of HuffPo links.

So what say you, good denizens of the intarwebs?

    I am also pretty happy about his choice of Warren as an inaguration speaker. I know a lot of people who aren't, but, frankly, I think a show of solidarity is important enough that the gays should quit being so uppity about it.

    I'm just sayin', the general level of seperation between church and state in America has remained pretty consistent over the last two hundred years.

    Well, the problem with this argument is that prop 8 was democratically passed. It was voted on by religious people. Thusly, the decision was more of a manifestation of the conservative tendencies of the American populace then of us having a government that passes theological laws.

    If, say, it was merely a bill introduced and passed by congress or somesuch, then I would take issue with it breaking that church/state boundary.

    It doesn't matter how the fuck a law is passed; if it violates a constitutional tenet, it's unconstitutional.

    Democracy is more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.

    Even if it is still voted on by the people, doesn't that still break that boundary once it hits law?

    Democracy is more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.

    I was under the impression that prop eight didn't violate any constitutional tenets because, in legal terms, it's not represented as a religious law. Even though we all know it is.

    People forget that the separation of church and state, as stated in the Bill of Rights, only has to do with the State making laws about religions. It's to protect the Church from the State, not the other way around.

    It has nothing to do with the religious beliefs of the populace influencing elections.
