Ten Signs Your Spouse's "Reparative Therapy" Didn't Take.

Between the end of the Defense of Marriage Act, the resumption of same-sex marriage in California, and the folding of Exodus International, people whose spouses have gone through the thoroughly debunked "reparative therapy" in a futile attempt to cure themselves of "the Gay" might be thinking how glad they are that they got in just under the wire.  However, these folks may want to take close watch of the person they're sharing their beds with.  As a guide, I offer these symptoms of "the Gay" that may indicate that your significant other may not be the "ex-Gay" that you think they are.  To be fair I'm going to provide two lists.  One for men, and one for women.

Who’s To Blame for NSA Spying? Look In The Mirror.

Let me start this off by saying that I have real problems with the US Government tapping into my phone conversations, looking into my e-mails, surveying my web history, generally spying on me period.  I’ve had this problem since they started doing it during the Bush administration.  That being said, I’m frankly surprised at the shock and awe displayed by the media and privacy advocates at “revelations” of the NSA’s surveillance program.  Why is everyone acting as if this is something new?  Why is everyone acting as though they had no idea that this surveillance has been going on?  Why are Tea-Partiers like Rand Paul trying to turn this into another “Obama scandal” (since all those other scandals have been working so well for them)?  And most of all, why are we all acting as though we’re NOT responsible for it?
