Supreme Court hears the gay marriage question

If you’re against gay marriage, why aren’t you in favor of gay divorce?

I happen to think gay divorce court would be compelling tv.

Where Bars Outnumber Grocery Stores

Wisconsin.

Big surprise, eh?

It is the only state I’ve been to where the guy working the joint will pump your gas, flip your burger, pull you another draft, and get you a dozen nightcrawlers all without washing his hands.

They’re probably drinking a lot up there this week, given that football game last Sunday.

Expert: Invitation to Child’s Party Not Enforceable

Expert: Invitation to Child’s Party Not Enforceable – Lowering the Bar.

The five year old didn’t show up to a birthday party. He has been billed a no show fee.

I don’t think it necessary to comment further.

I have seen my future…

And I do not like what is coming.

I’m talking about medical care. It is going to really suck when I get to the age that I require more medical care.

I was driving the wife to various appointments this week. It was an awful experience. There is no medical care. There are only specialists performing procedures. There is no coordination between specialists (unless they think a malpractice suit is in their near future).

Too funny.

Do they even stop to think?

On a post at Steve Sailer’s blog

Good stuff.

It might have been a reach to tie this to immigration, but yeah… Immigration will cure all of our ills.

Danced to this one a lot back in the day. I know I’m giving away my age. Oh well…

Discrimination at Infosys? I’m shocked…

Via Instapundit: Woman sues over discrimination at Infosys.

My only doubt about the claims the article says the woman is making in her suit against Infosys is that she was hired in the first place. It must have been some sort of mistake on the part of that whole H-1B fraud.
