Muni?! Striking resemblance though

with all the non U.S. Asian citizens knocking you out of the way in order to get a seat or on the train! I've heard of this...people pushers during Tokyo's rush hour. I know I'd be kicking some ass if I was being pushed or shoved like that.

The SF Chronicle reports Gov. Scwarzenegger has shifted his stance on a gay marriage ban

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Friday that he would fight an initiative to amend the California Constitution to ban gay marriage if it qualifies for the November ballot.

Schwarzenegger said he was confident that such an amendment, which already are on the books in 26 other states, would never pass in California and called it a "waste of time."

I can just hear the nutwingers screaming over this. Tuff shit is all I'll say.

I just want to put this out there because this is how I feel...

I've been thinking a lot lately about the BIG ONE = Earth Quake. If this happens before that idiot Bush leaves office, you can surely bet that he and his crooked administration will do nothing for the San Francisco Bay Area. You know exactly why too, but if not, let me clue you in on something about this evil man.

First, he doesn't like gay people, African Americans, Democrats, diversity, or immigrants and this is what you find here in the city! This idiot will treat us the same way he treated the residents of New Orleans during and after Katrina!!!!! He turned his back on all those people down there. To this date, people are still dealing with the aftermath of that devastating hurricane. Then there's 9/11, you saw how he dealt with that?!

The. Worst. President. Ever. has never ever stepped foot within the city limits of San Francisco during his entire term. Not that I'm aware of anyway! Hell, I don't think he's even made many trips out to California period and this is a major state. San Francisco is a major financial center on the west coast and a big player for the legal field. L.A., is the second largest city in the entire country and they are also a major financial center - plus the motion picture industry for the entire world!

So, in venting on all of this, I'm hoping and praying no other major disasters of any kind happen while he is in his final months.

Harvey Milk Bust to Sit Atop Staircase in SF City Hall Rotunda

Borrowed from Towleroad's site

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom played a key role in the final decision to place a bust of Harvey Milk in the City Hall rotunda rather than in the north mezzanine which one critic dubbed "semi-Siberia."

The bust, which will be unveiled on May 22 (which would have been Milk's 78th birthday), will sit permanently in the ceremonial rotunda atop the grand staircase.

According to the Bay Area Reporter, "The decision caps a months-long fight over where the memorial to the history-making lawmaker should be placed inside City Hall that sounds like a microcosm of the political haggling the landmark has long played home to since it opened in 1915. The actors this time included everyone from Milk's friends, members of several obscure city committees, the artists commissioned to create the bust, a granddaughter of a former mayor, and ultimately intervention by Mayor Gavin Newsom. 'This bust has been traveling around City Hall like you wouldn't believe,' quipped Joey Cain, co-chair of the Harvey Milk City Hall Memorial Committee. Cain said the committee wanted the bust to be in the rotunda. During Milk's time in office, noted Cain, Milk never rode the elevator to the second floor. Instead, he walked up the grand staircase every time. 'Harvey has a quote – I don't know the exact wording of – in which he said when gay people walk into City Hall, they should walk right up those stairs to let people know they are here,' said Cain. 'Putting it outside the entrance to the Board of Supervisors' chamber in this rotunda has great symbolic significance."

Newsom finally interceded and ordered the bust put in the rotunda. It will sit a few feet away from the Supervisors chamber and just down the hall from the office where Dan White shot and killed Milk in 1978.

Hillary's April Fools Joke

Excuse me, but with the way this election is going, does she really have to keep acting like such a STUPID...

Clinton's April Fools Joke
By BETH FOUHY, Associated Press Writer

Tuesday, April 1, 2008

(04-01) 10:44 PDT PHILADELPHIA, (AP) --
Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton walked somberly into a press conference Tuesday and stood before microphones. Reporters tensed, sensing something big might be afoot.

"This has been a very hard fought race," she said. "We clearly need to do something so that our party and our people can make the right decision. So, I have a proposal."

The tension grew. Reporters shifted in their seats. Was she dropping out of the race? Offering to join rival Barack Obama as his running mate?

April Fools!

"Today, I am challenging Senator Obama to a bowl-off," Clinton said, provoking relieved laughs from the assembled scribes.

Clinton carried on, making reference to Obama's disastrous outing at a Pennsylvania bowling alley Saturday.

"A bowling night. Right here in Pennsylvania. The winner take all," she went on. "I'll even spot him two frames."

"It is time for his campaign to get out of the gutter and allow all the pins to be counted. I'm prepared to play this game all the way to the tenth frame. When this game is over, the American people will know that when that phone rings at 3 a.m., they'll have a president ready to bowl on day one."

"Let's strike a deal and go bowling for delegates. We don't have a moment to spare, because it's already April Fool's Day. Happy April Fool's Day."
