This story was on the news this morning.  It is just... fucking bizarre and insane.  A man in Oakland was arrested for torturing his ex-girlfriend to death, which he did in his own, at-home torture chamber.  It's just one of those things thats just fucking insane.  And to make it even wierder, the police (who said the chamber was like something out of "Silence of the Lambs,") believe that this man may have killed two others, based upon two bloodstains they found downstairs.
The thing thats even wierder is how incredibly stupid this guy is.  On one hand, he has no criminal history.  But he does have a history of having beaten his ex-girlfriend.  In addition, this guy dropped his severly beaten ex off at a hospital, saying that he found her in a car.  Given the couple's history, the police got a search warrent for psycho-man's house.  


An SF Gate article said: 
There, police found a "very dark and frightening" room. 
"It was frightening even for us," Jones said. "It was kind of like this Silence of the Lambs type setting. It was very weird." 
Jones declined to describe the room or disclose what was found inside. 
Police not only found Lamb's blood in the room but blood from two other apparent victims whom police have not been able to identify. 

So not only was he the last person seen with the woman alive, but they had a dark history.  And after torturing her in his chamber o' doom, he didn't even clean up. 

*sigh*
I wish all criminals were this arrogent/stupid.  It would make the world a much safer place.

Issue the first: 
Former N.J. Gov. Tells Oprah of Affair

Recently, former New Jersey govenor James E. McGreevy filmed an appearance for the Oprah show.  Despite Oprah asking the audience to keep this quiet, two anonymous audience members did blab to reporters.  On one hand, I want to bitch-slap this man for going to have an affair with another man while his wife was in childbirth at the hospital.  That's just no okay.  But the part that really got to me was this:

In the interview, the audience members said Winfrey explores McGreevey's lifelong struggle with his sexuality.

McGreevey recounted going to the library as an adolescent to look up the word "homosexual" in a dictionary. When he found it included terms like "perverse" and "psychiatric disorder," the Irish-Catholic said he quickly learned to repress his feelings, audience members said.

The American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from a list of mental disorders in 1973.


It is heartbreaking to see the way that a man was seriously hurt because of the biases of others, and then by extension, his wife and family.    But on the other hand, sometimes it seems like there is still so much for homosexuals to attain.  Stories like this show us how far we've actually come.  



Lance Bass of `N Sync Reveals He's Gay


Um, okay.  Raise you hand if you didn't suspect that one of them was gay?  And I don't mean in the way that most people who were annoyed by the band  claimed they were all gay.  But this really puts my icon in a new light.

However, I would like point out that I thought it was great when he said '"The thing is, I'm not ashamed - that's the one thing I went to say," Bass says. "I don't think it's wrong, I'm not devastated going through this. I'm more liberated and happy than I've been my whole life. I'm just happy."'

Its a good thing whens someone can come out of the closet without feeling that they've done something wrong that they should apologize for.  The only sad part is that he felt he did have to hide it earlier, and with good reason.  The band probably would have suffered had he admitted his momosexuality.
Okay, giving the president the benefit of the doubt, one could say that he has often been too trusting, relying far too much on what his advisers tell him as opposed, instead of actually picking up a newspaper or browsing a news website.  After all the revealed instances in which it has been shown that the President received faulty information, you'd think he'd at least try to keep up on the world around him.  


Bush Surprised at Sudan Briefing

Given the amount of press-coverage recently directed at the Sudan, it is somewhat surprising.  Its been in the papers, on new sites, on the evening news.  And he still has no clue.  This is even more annoying than usual because he has the time. Yes, presidents are typically busy, causing them to be inordinately reliant upon advisors and aides.  But considering how much time he spends at his ranch in Texas, you'd think the man could spare ten minutes to read the fucking news.

In other news, the Japanese Prime Minister Koizumi, is doing a sort of farewell tour of the North America before stepping down from his post.  So George Bush has decided to show him some American culture by taking the foreign head of state to Graceland.

Bush and Koizumi to Visit Graceland

Now, while this makes sense as Koizumi is a Presley fan, doesn't is seem kinda odd to anyone else, or is it just me?
Come to America.  Forget Broadway, our museums, or the Grand Canyon.  We've got Graceland.

Oh my god.  This was a headline on yahoo news.  Oh god...  You HAVE to read this.

Rush Limbaugh Arrested for Drug Fraud

Oh my god.

I tend to shy away from the word "cunt."  It's a harsh word, and like any other word, is simply a word with no other meaning than what we apply to it.  But today I am going to use it in it's most vile, deragatory, and hateful nature.

Because Ann Coulter is a cruel, heartless, piece-of-shit cunt.  I can literally find no other description that does justtice to my loathing towards her in this moment.  

According to an article on Yahoo! news, Ann Coulter referred to 9/11 Widows as "Witches."


The article in essence sums up Coulter's beliefs regarding the widows of september 11th.  Read the following quote"

"I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much," Coulter writes in her book "Godless: The Church of Liberalism," published on Tuesday, referring to four women who headed a campaign that resulted in the creation of the September 11 Commission that investigated the hijacked plane attacks.

Coulter wrote that the women were millionaires as a result of compensation settlements and were "reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis."

This loathsome piece of trash continues, stating : "By the way, how do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies? Now that their shelf life is dwindling, they'd better hurry up and appear in Playboy."

Asked by Reuters why she made such personal comments, Coulter said by e-mail, "I am tired of victims being used as billboards for untenable liberal political beliefs."


"A lot of Americans have been seething over the inanities of these professional victims for some time," she added.

The article goes on to say that even the New York Post, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch (who isn't exactly a moderate in his own views) condemned her comments.

I just can't fathom such deep venom and cruelty.  It stuns me that someone could act so heartlessly. She hates for no reason other than they disagree with her.  And I can literally find no other terms to describe her than a worthless, disgusting, cunt.  And even that is no where near strong enough to convey my feelings.  Twenty minutes ago, I though Ann Coulter to be an annoying arch-conservative.  Now I find her to be a loathsome piece of trash, who makes Republicans look bad.

Dear Lord, save me from your psychotic followers. Please.

Dutch Christians Fear Devil's Day

For further reference, see George Bush, who is quoted as defending the Gay Marriage amendment by saying "An amendment to the constitution is necessary because activist courts have left our nation with no other choice."

Hear that sound? That is my soul dying.

Bush Calls for Gay Marriage Ban

According to Yahoo! news, the ban has already been struck down in the Senate. But it still hurts.

In other news, PEOPLE ARE REALLY FUCKING STUPID! Read about these two damn stupid motherfuckers. God, they deserved to die. I feel bad for their famailies, but these idiots were unbelievably idiodic. I, just, I don't have any further words...

Um, I hoped I spelled that right. Anyways, it probably isn't nice and happy and fluffy to celebrate death, but I can't help it!

1945: Germany announces Hitler is dead

*smirks*

Guess its springtime for Hitler and all that rot.

I'm a sad, sick puppy. *wags tail*
A Kenyan MP, during a debate about a new bill that would increase sentancing and recognition of sex crimes in Kenya, pissed off many women. Just his words irritated me. Read further down the article to see the punishment provision against rapists that was removed. I kind of think they should have left it in.


Kenyan women's anger at MP 'slur'
Kenyan women's rights activists have condemned an MP who told parliament that women usually say "No" to sex, even if they mean "Yes".
So, my parents came down to see me the weekend of my birthday, although they had to leave on my birthday. Odd. This year I didn't really care. Anywhoo, I have some joyous news;

Belgium has voted to grant gay couples the right to adopt! WOO HOO!!!

I also found a great article that kind of lists the status of gay marriage around the world, article found HERE!

Denmark was the first country to legalize; however, since it has a state sponsered religion, church marriages are not allowed. Spain, surprisingly considering their Catholicness, has also legalized. France is the country thats being all bitchy about it. Fuckers. New Zealand offer a civil union option for gay couples, or for hetero couples who just don't want to marry. So yay, this news made my still-sickly day. Peace out.
*dances* *sings off key*
Girl with the hazel eeeeeeyeeeeees!!!!!!!!!!

I got 6 hours of sleep last nights, four the night before, which isn't a lot for me.
Drove L to class in her car, then drove it back. Didn't crash!!!
Ate toast with jam.
Had two huge fuck-off cups o' coffee.
*cracks*

Now gaze upon the beauty that is my icon and worshop the pouty lips and beauteous bone structure that is James Franco. Mm.... Hotness...
Would it be creepy of me to have an icon of Kostya?

Mmmm... Russia.
Oh, and last night, Shasta and I talked on the phone with our messenger windows were open and looked at icons.
Remember kids, watch out for snake, and yee-haw is not a foreign policy.


And yay Willie Nelson. He did a song for "Brokeback Mountain," and in the wake of its popularity and acceptance, he released a song about gay cowboys, having written it twenty years ago. He kinda rocks.
Yo.

In other news, I'm not sure whether to be all like "cool," shocked and horrified, or just plain confused. I think I'll be confused.
There is going to be a Batman *obligatory Squee!! for Batman* comic called "Holy Terror," in which Batman faces al-Qaeda.

In other news, we were all pretty happy to hear that South Africa was ahead of the U.S. when it comes to gay rights. Too bad women's rights there aren't as advanced. There, rape is considered to be a taboo subject, and the victems have a harder time there than they do here.

But in other news, I'm still on crack.
SPAM!
But not.
Because Corinna prefers tuna instead of meat. Seriously. She told me.

Oh, and while puttering around on lj, I found this, a saterical study of early American history. It looks at the events in a humorous way, but it highly aware of the traveties committed in this time period. Pretty damn cool.

Saterical History This A-Way
Coretta Scott King died last week, after continuing her husband's struggle against inequality. However, I noticed an odd discrepancy.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/4688554.stm
BBC used her death to cite what a great humanitarian she was.

http://apnews.excite.com/article/20060207/D8FKG9D04.html
At excite new, well, they referenced the fact that after GW Bush talked, a lot of other speakers spoke out against him, using the beliefs of Mrs. King as a starting point.

While I normally enjoy any situation that taunts George W., I feel saddened. I mean, people were there to pay tribute to her, not bitch at the president. On one hand, I feel that Mrs. King would want people to speak out against injustice, the fact that it was at her funeral just seems rather crass. I don't know. What do you think?

Oh, and today it is 72 degrees in SF. If it continues in SF pattern, it will be 56 tomorrow.
