At last! (◕‿◕)✿
 
YES!  The U.S. Supreme Court has overturned the 6th Circuit decision and ruled 5-4 that all states must allow same-sex marriages.  Justice Anthony Kennedy (of all people!), writing for the majority, rightfully based the decision on Fourteenth Amendment grounds: 

"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

Happy, happy day.  Baby steps out of the Dark Ages.

Well, from my knowledge. Not allow this was rule into dark ages. After all, this concept of "TRADITIONAL FAMILY" is something created inside the Christianity and just 1600 ago.

Anyone run a website or blog and want to try out a new web analytics platform I've built?  It does realtime and historical analytics, as well as some cool cross-property stuff, in ways that Google Analytics can't.  It is currently in private beta.  If you are interested, please message me directly here.

I'll talk it over with the Board and see if they will agree if you're still interested.  I'll add you to a circle that can reach me via Hangouts if you want to talk in more detail.

The selection of tracks playing on pjsho.ws Radio is exactly matching my mood right now.  Or maybe I'm just in the mood for Pearl Jam. 😀

New research in the journal Animal Cognition demonstrates that when a rat is given the choice between rescuing a fellow rat from water and eating a favorite snack, rats will choose the former 50% - 80% of the time. The rat won't make this choice for another rat in a dry pool, showing they aren't just choosing companionship, and a rat is more likely to help if it has been stuck in water before.

Looks like a well-controlled demonstration of empathy in rats.

Not that I like to brag, nooo! (◕‿~)✿
 
+Monica McGee and I bought a fully-loaded Volkswagen Jetta SEL yesterday.  It reminds me a lot of the Audi A6 I used to drive, except higher-tech and more comfortable.  I just hope it doesn't break down as much as the Audi did. 

So, wait for my follow-up review in a month or two.  But after 24 hours' use, my opinion is 100% favorable.

I don't want to speak down on people's beliefs, but to me personally - religion appears to be a very advanced emotional manipulation 'sleight of mind ' trick.

Story
Tagline
@Monicks
Introduction
I am Monica (Salcedo) McGee, known for being a fiercely outspoken atheist, on  Monicks.net, on Twitter (@Monicks), and here on Google Plus. I am a humanist, a freethinker, a rationalist, and an egalitarian. I am married to Joshua McGee, (@McGeekiest). I also occasionally write over at gawd.me

I am an atheist guided by reason, instructed by science, motivated by kindness - and I'm also kinda nice. 

I am a secular humanist. I rely on reason to understand the world, and compassion guides my effort to apply my knowledge ethically. 

I behave decently to everyone without any expectation of rewards or punishment after I'm dead.

Want to know more? Monicks.net 

tl;dr? @Monicks


If I added you, it probably means I find something you do or said interesting, or most likely I think we have similar interests. If I'm right, and you feel so inclined, you can add me yourself, if not, just feel flattered and carry on.
