Signing off (with parting shots)
Thankfully, the rest of the STACLU crew has been more civil, though most are on par with Gribbit when it comes to obtuseness, rhetorical ability, spelling, and grammar. It's been fun arguing with them, both here and on their site, but those days are coming to an end. You see, I've found better things to do than dismantle the arguments of some far-right knuckleheads. They're a hopeless lot anyway, so set in their ways and patterns of thought that no amount of rhetoric can ever pry them from their entrenchments just to the left of Mussolini's corpse. They deal only in outrage. When someone - usually the ACLU - does something they don't like, they're online within minutes bitching about it. They offer few original ideas, other than that the ACLU, its members, anyone to STACLU's left on the political spectrum, anyone with melanin, and anyone who doesn't bow down before Jesus just ain't right in the head.
They can carry on their rage-fest unmolested for all I care. The great thing about people whose only reaction is outrage is that they never accomplish anything, other than voting the wrong people into office who, in turn, never accomplish anything. They're too busy being offended to make any actual change. In the five or so months I've been visiting their site, I've never once seen Stop the ACLU do any ACLU-stopping. It's just bitch, bitch, bitch.
As for me, I have another blog to keep me entertained; however, you can't have the link. I have to retain my anonymity after all. As for you, keep on taking on the silly arguments of the STACLU guys if that's your thang. I won't stop you. But don't forget to get out into the world, to experience things and change what you don't like rather than just complaining about it.
That's enough out of me. I've got things to do. So, to the ten or so of you who read this blog regularly, take care of yourselves, and keep fighting the good fight. Oh, and if you see Gribbit, give him a hug and a kiss for me... with lots of tongue.

Time for a little change of pace. I put together this little three-minute movie on gay marriage for your viewing pleasure. It comes complete with groundbreaking special effects and a rockin' soundtrack. I mostly made it because I can't get enough of Photoshop and Premiere, but I think it makes a point of some kind as well. Fight the power!
