    The penis goes in the vagina. It’s science, I checked. Who here is opposed to science?

    On another note, I want to marry my truck.

    If the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is willing to wed you to your truck, then who am I to oppose it?
    Why would I give a fcuk? It makes absolutely no difference in my life.





    (although we both know the truck could have done a lot better)

    :lol:

    And here's the thing, most conservatives I know would say that Zambo has a right to marry that truck in a civil union if he is so inclined. Now, they may rightfully think he's looney tunes but it's a free country. The liberals I know would demand that there is nothing out of the ordinary with marrying a truck and in the name of inclusion we ALL should make accommodation for Zambo and his truck. For instance, the motel where Zambo and his F-150 want to spend their honeymoon should be forced to install a garage door on their room to accomodate the two lovers. Not doing so would be truckist, discriminatory and mean.

    Would you penis then go in the gas hole?


    On a side note, I only eat heterosexual cake served on a cis gender normative plate with a fork, thank you.

    NPR was reporting he would not sell a generic cake? Complete refusal of service.

    In an interview on tv this morning, he stated he would be happy to sell a generic cake, but wasn't going to create a special cake.

    My understanding is that they asked for a custom cake; not a generic one.

    How stupid is the ridiculous claim about the "generic cake." I'm sick and tired of these liberals shoving their agendas on me and affecting my liberties with their childish sensitivities.

    Lots of agendas out there.

    It's a damn shame we are this dumb to burn up all kinds of resources.

    Mole hill. Leave the baker alone.

    I Love My Truck
    Well, it'll just get you down
    If you let life get to you
    Cause everybody's saying something
    None of it's true

    Well, I just don't care
    When them times get hard
    Cause I got everything I need
    Right out in my yard

    [CHORUS]
    I love my truck
    She's right outside
    I ain't got much love
    But I sure got a ride
    It don't matter who lived
    It don't matter who lied
    I got my truck right by my side

    Today, December 6th, is the Feast Day of St. Nicholas. Yes Virginia, there REALLY is a Santa Claus (but he never lived at the North Pole or owned any reindeer).

    Heard a summary of the arguments yesterday. Apparently the anti-religious bias virulently expressed by the commission that issued the rulings against the baker became a focal point of the arguments. No prediction on the outcome, but it is a very interesting test of religious freedom vs. a civil right to service.

    I was driving, but I think I heard them say one of the justices (Kennedy?) asked, “What if a Christian demanded a gay baker make a cake with a bible quote condemning homosexual practice?”

    What if I asked a Muslim baker to make me a Mohammed cartoon cake?

    BAKE THE CAKE CITIZEN!

    Exactly. You’d posted those analogies the other day and that is the line of inquiry that disturbed Kennedy. The lawyer for the Oregon commission had no answer.
