The House of Representatives held a hearing on the deceptively named First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) on July 12. This disgraceful bill distorts the meaning of religious liberty to sanction discrimination.

FADA would let individuals, businesses, taxpayer-funded organizations, and government employees ignore any law that conflicts with one particular religious belief about marriage. As a result, same-sex couples, unmarried couples, couples in which one person had been married before, single mothers, or even anyone who has had sex outside of marriage could face discrimination. The bill would create sweeping religious exemptions for those who object to marriage equality, including government officials who refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Late on June 30, a federal judge in Mississippi struck down a similar law to FADA, saying, the law “does not honor th[e] tradition of religion freedom, nor does it respect the equal dignity of all of Mississippi’s citizens.”

Urge your Representative to speak out in opposition to this discriminatory bill!

Tweet at Speaker Ryan and Rep. Chaffetz:

.@SpeakerRyan @jasoninthehouse FADA distorts religious freedom to allow discrimination. I urge you to stop FADA (HR 2802) now!

"I first met Homer playing a demo of After the Titans at Nan’s, a local comic and game store. I was surprised at how easy After the Titans was to pick up. My 50 year old dad, who had never understood Magic, was playing and having fun by the end of the evening. I feel like After the Titans is an excellent self-contained card game, without the need to buy a million tiny booster packs. It takes the fun of Magic, takes out all the complicated rules, and adds a neat Greek gods theme!" ―Emerson Haynes

I bet you're good at it too.

I hated web design work, but then code Geeks like I used to be shouldn't be allowed to be involved in the aesthetics of a good web page in the first place. I also had a preset prejudice against web sites from the get go. Mostly because idiots like Microsoft let web enterprise interaction occur through text based browsers which was a disaster as far as computer security has been concerned.

Microsoft had a technology that could have been used as an alternative. It was called DCOM, or distributed COM. The problem with it was that you had to be on a network's active directory to use it, not to mention the fact that it was a bitch to code with as well.

If they'd have come up early on with specialized VPN extensions to existing business networks, like they finally did with Windows Communication Foundation, we wouldn't have had to deal with stupid browsers.

Anyway... Being in a community of Woman owned businesses I thought I would challenge you all to start thinking about the idea that the world can't survive much longer if we continue with business as usual. We need an alternative to the current economic operating model and soon. Perhaps you'll check out the conversation I have going to search for that alternative: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+JeffVale/posts

This is why Richard Branson is in my dreams sometimes. He's a magical wizard! I'm looking forward to the success of this holiday un-program at Virgin. Happy, healthy, balanced people don't take advantage of awesome workplaces or their policies - and happy, healthy, balanced people is exactly what this un-policy will create.

An atheist, a Christian & a spiritual astrologist – all strangers – walk into a Whole Foods and talk about belief at the bar. Not a joke, just my afternoon.

The campaign to launch our After the Titans Expansion Packs is now live, just in time for Comicpalooza! The goal for this campaign is to get our newly tested and approved Expansion Packs printed and in your hands. This is an all or nothing campaign.

Here's what you can do to support our success:
- Join the campaign at any level
- Share this campaign with others
- Always share using the links on the campaign page
- Leave an enthusiastic comment on the campaign page

Our first goal is to meet 25% of the campaign this first week to get the momentum needed to make this happen. Due to ordering requirements, this is an all or nothing campaign. If you want the Expansion Packs, we need you to share this with your friends.

No idea what After the Titans is? It's a deck-building card game in a 100 card closed set with all the game mechanics of collectible trading card games created independently by two game enthusiasts in Houston.

Scientists can now 3D Print Tracheas and test transplants are proving successful. Printing body parts. Yep, we're living in the future.
Dr. Faiz Y. Bhora, director of thoracic surgical oncology at the St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York, hopes to be the first to successfully implant 3D-printed tracheas in human patients.

Christians in Florida have opened the door for Satanic activity books in public schools and the lessons therein are great! "These bullies are mad and afraid of things they don’t understand," the instructions on the word-jumble reads. "Help Damian use inclusive language to defuse the situation."

Yet again, smart move by The Satanic Temple (after the statue in Oklahoma and their response to the Hobby Lobby ruling, among other things). I've seen some scared / ignorant atheists responding to TST but their fight for equal rights and liberty truly deserves anyone's support (except Christians I guess :-)).

The worst. Consider your order a surprise grab-bag, because it will not be correct. This place has consistently miserable, slow service. New management & employees are greatly needed.

Clean, fair prices on full service wash & fold. If you need dry cleaning, the small deli/grocery across the street can assist.

I've had take-out from Garbanzo Grill three times on a lengthy vacation & it has been consistently delicious! I recommend ordering online for accuracy, especially if you have special instructions - they are very attentive to needs. Their falafel is fantastic! The tzatziki comes in small containers, so order extra if you love it.

So much thought was put into the architecture and landscaping of this HEB. It makes for a cooler parking lot and friendly employees.

If you're staying in the area, stroll over for some fresh pizza by the slice. The margherita was delicious, and you can never go wrong with plain cheese. Cold canned drinks are available.

Phenomenal food, plenty of variety, weird seating. Pop in for a quick lunch. The line may appear long, but it moves quickly.
