The Kim Davis Wannabe, Casey Davis of Casey County

The race to see who can be the biggest asshole in Kentucky has only just gotten started. Unfortunately, the media is only interested in Kim Davis, the current front runner. Lost in the shuffle of bigots and “Obstructionists for Jesus” is Casey Davis of Casey County, another country clerk. He’s no relation to Kim, but like her he refuses to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Just one problem with his little show of hatred. No gay couples have actually applied for a marriage license in Casey County. One imagines they know better than to announce their gayness in a place where elected officials feel perfectly secure publicly announcing that they will disobey the law in order to promote bigotry.

But this is where Mr. Davis accidentally reveals the whole plot. Because for all the false cries of “religious liberty” clearly this is only about depriving other people of their rights. Why else would Casey Davis publicly announce his unwillingness to issue licenses to gay couples, when there are none requesting them? It serves no purpose other than to reaffirm the zone of discrimination that he and Kim and others like them are protecting. They are using the media to announce to as many people as they can reach that they will never give up the fight against gay rights. That is what this is about and what it has always been about. These people will lie about their motives and hide behind religious liberty, just as many bigots and racists before them have done. They will do whatever it takes to slow the progress that we see in the rest of the country. They will carry on Kim’s vow on release from jail to “keep on pressing.” Keep on pressing what? Pressing their hatred on others, seeking any accommodation for their bigotry, trying to maintain the safe space for hate that they cling to so desperately. In return, we must keep on pressing too, until these pockets of hate no longer exist.

"Again" at the beginning of a sentence when you are not repeating something previously said

"Again, we apologize for any inconvenience."

If you have only said this once, why are you preceding it with the word "again." Cut that right out.

Morgan Freeman

Enough already. It's ok to make a movie without Morgan. Seriously Hollywood, I give you my permission.

What is the deal with this guy? Why is he in every movie? Are there actual Nick Cage fans? He hasn't done an interesting role since Vampire's Kiss.

I can tell the difference between millions and billions, I don't need it pointed out to me. Thanks.

Violet shirts

Ok folks, what's with the freaking violet shirts? It's like somebody puked blueberries in the shirt aisle. Did some Very Important Celebrity wear a violet shirt on some Very Important TV Show? What has happened to humanity? You know they'll all be in the back of your closet this time next year. Save your pennies folks. And my eyes. No more violet shirts. Please.

Let me put your mind at ease: I know I have the right to disagree with your opinion, debate or even argue with you.

Do you believe you've discovered the best digital camera? Live in the coolest neighborhood? Breed the sexiest chinchillas?

Then take a stand, grow a pair, and stop qualifying your opinion with "arguably."

Business models based on people forgetting to cancel

"After your 30-day FREE trial, your membership will automatically renew each month for just $34.95. You can keep your free introductory shit even if you cancel your membership" It's just not an honest way of doing business. See also, Late Fees

Cell phone sound quality

The last person to find this low level of call quality acceptable was Alexander Graham Bell.

When that book I want to read...

...isn't available as an audiobook. Take LIMITLESS (Alan Glynn), for instance. After mostly enjoying the movie, I was eager to hear the original novel while driving. Instead, I was forced to read it like some kind of 19th century egghead.

Aside from the indignity of reading printed words, I recommend it.

PS. Originally published as DARK FIELDS in the UK.
