Just realized I had not posted. Weight went up to 438 even. It fluctuates so that is expected.

Today was weird as the food I had during work hours was just the slimfast. I felt a little light headed after wards but in my desire to eat correctly I got a large salad instead of hitting a burger joint or the like. The donuts were a mistake but I was low enough on calories it did not hurt the total.

I rather loved this the first time Jason shared it. I went and looked it up last night. It is good music first off and the jousting element is pretty awesome.

oh well another person I respected drops tremendously in my eyes.

thanks to[info]matociquala for the link.

So Orson Scott Card, a man whose work I have really really enjoyed in the past, has gone and proved himself a complete and utter prat. He posted his opinion piece on Mormon Times stating the greatest threat to democracy in this country is gay marriage being legalized by the courts in Massachusetts and California.

article can be found here.


"The first and greatest threat from court decisions in California and Massachusetts, giving legal recognition to "gay marriage," is that it marks the end of democracy in America."

His diatribe proves himself deliberately ignorant of both nature and history. I say deliberately ignorant because he is not by nature a stupid man. He has demonstrated some smarts in his writing. This is him pretending not knowing what he does know for his "faith". A faith which cannot stand the test of views counter to it is not worth having.
