My quick take on Obergefell

Justice Kennedy in the majority opinion in Obergefell stresses the centrality of “marriage” as an institution even while re-defining it beyond recognition. Marriage used to be the central public institution because it was the bridge that united the two halves of the human race, i.e. the sexes. But now that it has been re-defined to mean some vague sexless transcendence, it is really difficult to understand what’s so damned central about it anymore. Justice Kennedy is an idiot.

My four favorite Nihilistic Songs

1.  "I don't like Mondays"
2.  "The Battle of New Orleans"
3.  "Road to Nowhere"
4.  "Mackie Messer"  (And, no, Brother Tom, Bobby Darin did not "nail" it.  His version is just another annoying permutation of American Nihilism plastered with Delusional Carnegiesque Cheeriness.  It makes me retch.)

This is now perfectly constitutional

Man: Hey, babe.

Woman: (flashes her wedding ring at the rake)

Man: What's your point?

Woman: I am married, you dumbass.

Man: So what? Marriage is a relationship unlike any other. It has a transcendent purpose of spiritual expression that no other relationship can touch. I don't want that. I'm just looking for an ordinary, everyday, non-transcendent one-night-stand.

Woman: Are you an idiot?

Man: Justice Anthony Kennedy told us that marriage is about finding other freedoms, such as expression, intimacy, and spirituality. You're married, right. Then be free!  Express yourself!

Woman: Fine, I will. (throws her drink in the man's face and stomps out)

My Life as a Dog

"What should you teach a dog?"

"You should try to teach him about the meaning of life.  If he is disinterested, then he's a rational dog."

You know what sucks?

Getting up to 6 A.M. to get ready to go to Mass.  Yeah, yeah, I know,  it's the least I can do for God, Who gave me this most wonderful life.

I was less sleepy when I was an Atheist.

Schwarzenegger, call your office

 If an opposite-sex couple can say,  "we're pregnant," when expecting a baby, well then according to the dictates of whatever passes for "equality" it is only fitting that a same-sex couple should be able to use this phrase as well.  Because, after all, same-sex couples are NO DIFFERENT from opposite-sex couples.  Human biology is, after all, merely right-wing bigotry and, therefore, nonsense.  That's why History gave us Legal Fiat.
