"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

Reading this article just further reinforces my disdain for Wal-Mart and people in general.

Employees at the Niles, MI Wal-Mart store accused Paolucci of shoplifting some Bic lighters. Although he produced the receipt, they refused to back down, insisting that the two men go to a “detention room”. The employees, using vulgarities and hostility, frightened their special needs kids.

This is blatant homophobic discrimination and harassment. It just makes me sick, and pushes my ultimate decision to move out of the country that much closer to the present.

Considering there's already a proposal being made to change the constitution to explicitly state that marriage is between a man and woman, I don't know how much longer I can deal with a good deal of the population, including my sister, being treated as second-class citizens. If H.J. Res 56 gets passed I'm saying adios to America and hola to England.
