What's on your mind?
 
The good news is, it should be relatively painless to remove.
The world is a wide and wonderful place, but its also full of hidden dangers and maladies that'd you'd never even expect. I try to watch my blood pressure and limit my starch intake, not for any particular reason. I mean, why wait for starch to be a problem? I'd like to think I have all my cards in order, but then ...

Sarah Turner says she was "addicted" to soda. She would drink it from the time she woke up until it was time to go to bed. In fact, Turner tells HLN that on average, she would drink four to five liter bottles each day. Then, in April of 2014, the mom of three was asked to join a mom's sporting event. At 245 pounds, Turner says she just didn't have the energy.

The irony here is laughable, that this lady appealed to the very Supreme Court which just gave gays the right to marriage to try to have them rule that she can usurp and ignore their ruling. Doesn't that sound bonkers? Of course she did that, and will get herself thrown in jail for contempt next, for not doing what she was elected to do (they can't fire her because she was elected) so she can write a book and go on the bible-belt talk show circuit to make money. 

And further irony: this woman "standing up for traditional marriage" had two bastard children with a future 3rd husband while married to her first husband, and now she's on her 4th marriage, when she remarried the 2nd husband. Sheesh. Unbelievable that 3 different people wanted to marry the bigot in the pic below who is that godawful ugly, and one of them even twice. I'd hate to see what the hubbies must look like.

But aside from the irony, if you've studied your history, you can see that this is just one instance of a continuing pattern, and that the very same kind of drama took place almost exactly a century ago. But not with gay marriage, but with interracial marriage, which was the equivalent of gay marriage at the time in terms of political conflict, as the maturing country and culture took new steps in terms of freedom and liberty.

Jack Johnson, the first black heavyweight boxing world champion, was jailed for the maximum sentence of a year and a day after he married a white woman. Two Christian ministers in the South even recommended lynching him. And then, in response to this case, in the House of Representatives in 1911, Representative Seaborn Roddenberry of Georgia tried to introduce a constitutional amendment to ban interracial marriages. In his appeal to congress, Roddenberry stated that:

"Intermarriage between whites and blacks is repulsive and averse to every sentiment of pure American spirit. It is abhorrent and repugnant. It is subversive to social peace. It is destructive of moral supremacy, and ultimately this slavery to black beasts will bring this nation to a fatal conflict.... No brutality, no infamy, no degradation in all the years of Southern slavery possessed such a villainous character and such atrocious qualities as the provisions...which allow the marriage of the negro Jack Johnson to a woman of the Caucasian strain."

Influenced by Roddenberry and his supporters, miscegenation bills were introduced after that in 1913 in half of the twenty states where this law did not already exist. Ironically, it would later be another Roddenberry, of course, who would introduce the first inter-racial kiss on television between a white and black person, when on November 22, 1968, Kirk kissed Uhura in the "Plato's Stepchildren" ep of Star Trek.
