The crazy conservatives are back in town. A few of the speakers:
I cannot tell you how furious I get when hearing a politician or representative from a special interest group trying to justify these so-called “Religious Freedom” bills now making their way through several state legislatures. These bills would allow businesses to deny services to gays because of the employer’s religious beliefs- which isn’t any different from not allowing blacks to sit at lunch counters reserved for white customers.

This past Sunday ABC’s This Week ran an interview with the former president where he talked about his involvement with veterans and the difficulties they face when re-entering civilian life. At one point Bush gets somewhat emotional and says “I’m in there with them”. No, you’re not. You (and your administration) are the reason so many are in a place where you are not.
Terrible news in Kiev this morning and not a peep from Putin.
I haven’t watched the Olympics for years (not a fan of the media turning every US athlete’s life into a production number) but I did watch some of the ice dancing this year. I especially enjoyed watching Meryl Davis and Charlie White’s performances, not just for their abilities but for the caricature potential. I couldn’t resist Davis’ perfect porcelain doll features and White’s crazy hair.
