Mark Cuban

For a long time I have been 'following' Mark Cuban, and been fascinated with him and his outlook on live. He is a no BS type of guy who just lays it out there for you. I have no idea what he is really like, but he seems to be straight forward and open to two way intelligent discussion. I have been reading his blog for a while now and try to check it every day. Especially interesting the last month or so as his Mavericks got into the NBA Finals.

Stolen from the web:

"[President Bush,] you were in Baghdad for six hours. You weren't even in the real Baghdad. You were in the Green Zone. That's like going to the Olive Garden and saying you've been to Italy."

Stupidity in Politics

Well our feared (by thinking people anyway) has done it yet again! Asking for a Constitutional 'Marriage' Amendment. One rational is supposedly that currently Married people will re-think their decision to marry there spouse, now that some other people will be able to get married. So I am happily married, but somehow if we 'allow' 2 men or 2 women to marry each other I will need to re-evaluate my marriage in case I want to get divorced???
Another 'conviction' for this is that marriage is for procreation.. I guess that means that people in their 50's or 60's and beyond don't need to be married either, since they are past their childbearing age. Couples unable to bear children should also re-think their current marital status.
How intelligent are these arguments? What can be any rational reason to prevent 2 people from making a life long commitment to each other? Why do we as a society want to tell people who they should love?


"The Republican leadership is asking us to spend time writing bigotry into the Constitution," said Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, which legalized gay marriage in 2003. "A vote for it is a vote against civil unions, against domestic partnership, against all other efforts for states to treat gays and lesbians fairly under the law."

In response, Hatch fumed: "Does he really want to suggest that over half of the United States Senate is a crew of bigots?"

well YES!
