March Madness, it's everywhere. Sometimes without it being March.  

JOIN THE VOTING, THE INSANITY, THE DRAMA AND SUSPENSE, THE INEVITABLE WANKFEST THAT WILL ENSUE! BWAHAHAHA! Oh, and be sure to VOTE FOR CASTIEL in the Supernatural section regardless, because our angel needs some love, dammit. I'll give you a special ~something~ if you do..../bribing

++ Shenanigans are happening on the Supernatural set between two children. And by children, I mean Jared and Misha, obviously. As been reported via Cliff's (the Js bodyguard) Twitter, they are having their own pranking wars with each other right now, starting with Misha leaving $1970 worth of coins in Jared's trailer, which has now been retaliated by Jared leaving the coins in Misha's car. Oh boys, lulz forever. I wonder what will happen next if Misha decides to retaliate back....

++ Now for some enraging news: The Supreme Court has allowed the Westboro Baptist Church to protest at military funerals. I understand respecting the First Amendment rights, but this advocating hate speech and knowing perfectly well that they will spew such hatred everywhere, it's so despicable. Sure, one could ignore their foaming-at-the-mouth rage, but in places where people are mourning for their loved ones and paying respects for the deceased that died in the line of duty is completely and totally vile and disgusting. Granted it will make the entire WBC look more like hateful douchebags than they already do, but still. Way to such tact, America.

I just, I can't. What is happening with our country right now? -__-

I voted for Cas. What do I get?

WTF to the supreme court decision? Technically, speech can only be limited if it is a threat/causes fear in the intended target. Because only action, not opinion can be limited. However, hate speech clearly applies, and what they are doing is clearly intended to incite fear in gays, particlarly those in the military. So, this decision is wrong.

Plus my undying love and affection, obvs. ;)

Seriously though, I'm baffled at the Supreme Court right now. I just don't see how this isn't a hate crime because really, the entire WBC is the very definition of being a hate crime. I don't get it, and it makes me sad. :/

Why hasn't anyone already put those Westboro-people behind bars. THEY'RE DISGUSTING. oh, America :|
Renée: Castiel. Show some respect.rogueslayer452 on March 2nd, 2011 11:49 pm (UTC)
I wish. :(

Technically speaking, they aren't doing anything wrong legally. However, everyone knows all they do is spout their hatred and really, protesting at a funeral? Can you just imagine mourning for your child or lover and hearing these jerkoffs calling them an "abominations" and that they "deserved to die" because of who they are? Just, ugh. :/

And that's the shittiest part.

I can't even imagine. That "church" is giving other believers a bad name, they're the ones who are being the abominations. I can't even comprehend what goes through their minds. :| (or should I say, through the mind of that Grandfather and the mom, the kids seem awfully brainwashed...)

Uggggh, the Westboro Church needs to be shut down. I don't even care if it happens legally or by tragic but violent accident. Just make those people go away. :(
Renée: BSG. Natalie is not pleased.rogueslayer452 on March 3rd, 2011 05:57 am (UTC)
I'm right there with you.

Unfortunately, even if these people are taken out of the equation, there are other groups and organizations and individuals that have the exact same viewpoint as they do. :/ But weeding out these people is the best way of maintaining order and at least some sanity, right?

and this is why homophobia is EVERYONE'S problem, not just a gay problem.

the Mishalecki faction of our Fandom is having a party right about now. <3 this is even better than the Scrabble thing.

Seriously. :/

I just love this cast and how much fun they have, and since Misha and Jared are known pranksters on the set you know things might escalate further if they want it to. XD I wonder how far it'll go or pan out.

MARCH MADNESS FTW! I won't lie, I squealed when I saw the stuff about Downtown Abby - best period piece since the 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice.

WTF SUPREME COURT?! I just cannot wrap my head around how they could allow such a thing. There is free speech and then there is hate speech.

I love the March Madness and its, well, madness, lol! Not only with how competitive fandom seems to get, but also how many of my fandoms seem to get represented. When I saw Popular on there I freaked out because, who else remembers that show? :D So awesome.

IKR? JFC, this country is seriously making me want to headdesk repeatedly on many things. :/

According to Cliff, the money is for charity.

First, let this be said. I despise the WBC and everything they do. Every. Single. Thing.

But under the First Amendment, they are guaranteed the right to peaceably assemble. It has nothing to do with what they are saying, but their right to gather. We can't take that away, as much as we'd all like to, because once rights from one group start getting revoked, that snowballs.

Does it blow? Yes. Are they disgusting human beings? You betcha. Is protesting at military funerals tactless and absolutely abhorrent? God yes but under the First Amendment (which isn't only freedom of speech), they have that right.
