Okay, Denizens, I’m getting a report from this blog that the Defense of Marriage Act has been declared unconstitutional…by a bankruptcy court.
This is the only report I’ve seen thus far – Prof. Jacobson doesn’t have it; Michelle doesn’t have it…hell, Drudge doesn’t even have it. Nor do I know the blogger very well, truth be told.
48-hour rule is most assuredly in effect. Stay tuned.
(JDSUPRA) Debtors were legally married under California law prior to the passing of Proposition 8. They filed a joint petition for relief under Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code and the United States Trustee moved to dismiss. In a well reasoned 26 page decision
Well, I dunno how “well-reasoned” it is to go against the will of a majority consisting of seven million California voters – but hey, whatever floats the guy’s boat, hm?
the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California, Judge Thomas Donovan presiding, held, among other things, that DOMA did not meet the heightened scrutiny standard and would not prevent these two debtors from filing a joint petition and seeking relief as joint debtors under Title 11.
The Leonard article is a lot more in-depth, and is worth the time to read.
What fascinates me, though, is this blurb:

No, I didn’t watch the debate last night – I have better things to do with my time.
Like, say, watching grass grow.
But I’m reading this recap of the thing, and I’m thinking…we as a country are over $14 extra-ginormous-large (that’s “trillion” for you douchebags in the Church of the SubTarded) in debt; our economy is on the verge of complete collapse; we’re seeing, right before our very eyes, the beginnings of civil unrest; we have people entrusted to be our voice in Washington who would rather show their junk to 17-year-old girls while their wives are elsewhere – and we’re asking our presidential candidates whether they prefer deep dish or thin crust?!?!?
UPDATE: I forgot to add what may be the most important point. I had been considering tossing my support to Herman Cain after the first debate, but I have to completely abandon him after he answered the key question of the evening by saying he endorses Chicago style deep dish pizza over the New York, thin crust variety. Too bad, Herman. You were looking pretty good up until then.
Great. Honkin’. Cthulu.

Y’wanna know just what kind of pussified douchebags the Demoscum are? ‘Specially the unions?
Here you go. This was taken at a Special Olympics event in Wisconsin. (Yeah…that Wisconsin.)
They’re such hate-filled pieces of shit that they won’t even let the special kids have their day. (And if you ask me, the special kids have higher IQs.)
I’d entertain a motion to hire out the Patriot Guard Riders to ride herd on these events, just to keep the union chickenshits from going all Westboro on events like this.
And if one of them just happened to “accidentally” cause a union pussy to flop face-first into the cement…wellllll, I’d be inclined to overlook that.
Say, with a beer in hand for the PGR guy.

Richard Glover is a pussified, Global-Wormening-Truther Nazi-wannabe type writing for the Sydney Moaning Hollered in Australia (yes, Little Dickhead – should pigs ever fly and you actually read this site, that spelling was deliberate. Sad I have to explain it, but you can never take chances with little one-brain-celled short-bus riders like you).
And I would just love to see him try this.

Newtie Gin-grinch’s campaign was put on life support today.
Top aides to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich have resigned en masse, Fox News has learned, imperiling the Republican’s 2012 presidential campaign at a crucial time.
Among the senior staff members Gingrich is losing are spokesman Rick Tyler and campaign manager Rob Johnson, along with other strategists. Insiders say Gingrich and senior aides were unable to agree on the direction of the campaign.
And from the looks of things, it was Calista that drove them away:

This poll is almost as scary as one which shows Obama wining by a landslide.
From what little I have seen, a Romney presidency would best be described as Obamalite. The only real difference between the two policy wise seems to be that one is a Democrat, while the other is a Republican.

Denizens, we’ll start your Monday with some good news for a change: The sun has come up in the West, pigs are flying, the lamb is laying down with the lion…and a bank has gotten its ass foreclosed on.
It started five months ago when Bank of America filed foreclosure papers on the home of a couple, who didn’t owe a dime on their home.
The couple said they paid cash for the house.
The case went to court and the homeowners were able to prove they didn’t owe Bank of America anything on the house. In fact, it was proven that the couple never even had a mortgage bill to pay.
A Collier County Judge agreed and after the hearing, Bank of America was ordered, by the court to pay the legal fees of the homeowners’, Maurenn Nyergers and her husband.
The Judge said the bank wrongfully tried to foreclose on the Nyergers’ house.
So, how did it end with bank being foreclosed on? After more than 5 months of the judge’s ruling, the bank still hadn’t paid the legal fees, and the homeowner’s attorney did exactly what the bank tried to do to the homeowners. He seized the bank’s assets.
And not only that, sportz fanz – for once, it got followed-through on.
Sheriff’s deputies, movers, and the Nyergers’ attorney went to the bank and foreclosed on it. The attorney gave instructions to to remove desks, computers, copiers, filing cabinets and any cash in the teller’s drawers.
After about an hour of being locked out of the bank, the bank manager handed the attorney a check for the legal fees.
“As a foreclosure defense attorney this is sweet justice” says [Nyergers' attorney Todd] Allen.
Oh, you just got-to got-to got-to lurrrve ya SummaDat.

Nine years ago today, Alan K. Henderson got into this thing we call blogging.
It’s important to this Sith Lord, because he’s the one that got me into it.
MERLIN: That’s right – blame everyone else but yourself.
KORRIOTH: Typical li…
[Venomous gestures. Both Merlin & Korrioth go flying into the nearest bulkhead.]
Anyway, happy blogiversary, Alan.

Over the past 30 minutes or so, the Southern Command has experienced something rarely heard in these parts lately. Yes something so infrequent I had to get the R&D staff to scour the Intertubes to verify this phenomenon.
This what they discovered.
The following information was located at the Merriam Webster website and give us this result from their search engine:
Definition of THUNDER
: the sound that follows a flash of lightning and is caused by sudden expansion of the air in the path of the electrical discharge
This search originated after several instances of said phenomenon occurred and so severely upset the force protection canines at the HQ Security Forces kennel that the kennel master got so worried he actually used the RED PHONE to contact the General. Upsetting indeed because the General was napping and DOES NOT take kindly to interruptions to his Sunday afternoon nap.
Since the R&D staff was already at work, I insisted they research any OTHER unusual occurrences that could follow said phenomenon and this is what they mutually agreed COULD follow the above mentioned:
noun, often attributive \ˈrān\
Definition of RAIN
a : water falling in drops condensed from vapor in the atmosphere
b : the descent of this water
If any further developments happen, be sure that we the staff of the Southern Command will promptly inform you. For now, you can return to your normal comings and goings.

For your weekend merriment, this came from LC ORWN, engine builder for Rottie Racing (link):
On a tour of Florida, the Pope took a couple of days off to visit the coast for some sightseeing.
He was cruising along the beach in his Popemobile when he heard a frantic commotion just off shore
A helpless man wearing a New York Yankees jersey was struggling frantically to escape the jaws of a 25 ft shark.
As the Pope watched, horrified, a speedboat came racing up with 3 men wearing Boston Red Sox jerseys aboard. One quickly fired a harpoon into the sharks side. The other 2 reached out and pulled the bleeding , semi-conscious Yankee fan from the water and using autographed Manny Ramirez baseball bats, the three Beantown heroes beat the shark to death and dragged it into the boat.
Immediately the Pope shouted and summoned the men to the beach, ” I give you my blessing for your brave actions” he told them. ” I had heard that there was some bitter hatred between Red Sox fans and Yankee fans, but now I have seen with my own eyes that this is not the truth”
As the Pope drove off, the harpooner asked his buddies, ” who was that? ”
“It was the Pope” one replied, ” he is in direct contact with God and has access to all of God’s wisdom”
”Well,” the harpooner said, ”he may have access to all of God’s wisdom, but he sure doesn’t know anything about shark fishing..How’s the bait holding up?”

Fox News is reporting (and Wikipedia, crappy source that it is, has apparantly confirmed) that Jack “Dr. Death” Kevorkian has died. (No word on whether anyone helped him or not.)
Good. Fucking. Riddance.

Apologies If I am stepping on anyone’s toes. I chuckle every time I watch this.

Denizens, may I introduce to you porn star Ginger Lee.
#Weinergate rolls on for Rep. Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat. Now we’re learning that the plagued congressman shared private communications with porn star and stripper Ginger Lee.
In a March 13 tweet, Tennessee-based Lee indicated that Weiner sent her a private Twitter message:
You know it’s a good day when you wake up to a DM from @RepWeiner”, Lee tweeted. “(I’m a fangirl, y’all, he’s my trifecta of win)”
When contacted by The Daily Caller, Lee wouldn’t say what Weiner sent her in that private direct message, or DM in Twitter-speak. Lee also refused to answer whether she and Weiner have had other private communications and declined to say whether Weiner has sent her photos of any kind. Instead, she downplayed the #Weinergate scandal.
“I haven’t met Rep Weiner. I follow him on twitter because I support him & what he stands for,” Lee said in an email to TheDC.
Now do you wonder why she’s in the porn industry? Certainly appears as if she’s not mentally qualified to do much of anything else.
“I have been hounded by his political opponents
I tend to think it’s not political opponents “hounding” her, but rather leftist horndogs who think she’d be a cheap, easy lay.
And who knows? Given the abject lack of brainpower she’s exhibiting here…they may be right.
but that hasn’t changed my view of him and what he fights for.”
Actress Goldie Hawn has made a helluva lotta scratch (that’s money for those of you in the Church of the SubTarded) playing ditzoid bimbos like the title role in Private Benjamin and her airheaded schtick on Laugh-In.
On the other hand – with this bimboid Ginger Lee…I don’t think it’s acting.
