Kim Davis Is Not A Martyr

Kim Davis is the Rowan county clerk from Kentucky who refuses 
to issue marriage licenses after the Supreme Court of the United
States ruled to recognize gay marriages. There were others who 
sought clarification from the courts about that ruling. Kim Davis
challenged the court's order for her to resume issuing marriage
licenses. Finally, a federal judge ordered her jailed for contempt of
court when she still refuses to follow the court. 

No doubt, Kim Davis is standing firm on her principles. 

But she's not a martyr. Nobody is persecuting her or people standing
up for their principles. She has a position, an elected position. Those
who put her in that position wants her to do her job. She has injected
her personal religious beliefs into her job. and worse, she refuses to 
do her job. 

When ordinary workers do their jobs poorly, they get fired. When 
elected officials don't do their jobs, they get impeached. That will 
cost taxpayers delay and money. For the couples who wanted to
get married, gay or not, Kim Davis put their lives on hold. 

If you are going to argue that Kim Davis has a moral right to do 
what she did then let me ask you this. If I convert to Islam and 
somebody put me in charge of issuing driver's licenses in the DMV,
would you support me if I refuse to issue driver's licenses to women?

Evolution *Not* Crashing on Fedora Forum Emails

Hi Reese

I don't know what got updated, what package in Fedora was patched or 
fixed but Evolution is *not* crashing  when I open users-request* emails
from the fedora forum anymore.  I got 5 of 5 from them just today and
they did not crash Evolution mail. Good job.

Cutting Down Trees

The neighbors are cutting branches off their tree. A couple who lived at least
fifty years are trying with ladder and rope to climb and trim their tree. The man 
climbed twenty feet and is shouting instructions to his wife down on the ground.
I'm next door well next yard and listening to my collection of BestEverAlbums. 
Every now and then, words would come raining down, loud and unclear. I think 
they were in German, I'm not sure. 

Some words speak for themselves, some I just guess the meaning from 
context. He wasn't angry just loud. 

He tied this rubber hose up twenty feet to the branch and somebody is 
tugging at the end on the ground. I guess she's his wife. He's up the tree with
a saw. An hour later, the words are getting desperate and futile. The tree would
not give away its branch. The morning goes to noon now and the midday 
temperature moves to 32 degrees. I'm sweating in the shade. 

He is loud again. The sun goes full bore and the branch creeks ready to break. 
The leaves move down slowly, as if to cushion the fall.  

The wife wants to see some sky from the patio.

Iglesia Ni Cristo, EDSA and Justice

Politicians are always willing to buy votes. They can do it with cash or the expression
of their opinions. Obviously they would rather express and part with their opinions
since they love their cash more. 

Religions have their hands all over politics. Kings were heads of churches and Popes 
anoint Kings if you remember history. Last week, the Iglesia Ni Cristo, occupied EDSA
and stopped traffic for hours. They have a permit given them by the city of Mandaluyong
signed by Mayor Abalos. Filipinos who use this highway were angered and took to the
social media. The Iglesia Ni Cristo wants the investigation by the Department of Justice
to stop. This investigation started with an alleged detention and kidnapping of members
of Iglesia Ni Cristo by its leader. Secretary Leila de Lima rightfully, investigates any 
crime reported by citizens of this country. 

Should government keep its distance from matters of faith as the Iglesia Ni Cristo wants
it to do? Did the leader of Iglesia Ni Cristo illegally detained and kidnapped some of its
members? Netizens who quickly took to their social media accounts certainly believe that
they had been kept away from using EDSA. These people believe they were detained from
going home. They were delayed and inconvenienced, denied access to a public road by a
group who wants something from the government. 

I am not a lawyer but detention and kidnapping are serious crimes. Justice must take its
course. Politicians notwithstanding, justice should move blind and slow but right.

Update Gnucash 2.6.16 --> 2.6.18

It's a long road to this update. It isn't a normal update at all. I had to manually compile goffice0.8 and webkitgtk as well as gnu...
