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?

America Must Evolve Fast Or Die

This was a music festival concert venue in Las Vegas, Nevada. A shooter in the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel across the general area opened fire then shot himself. He killed 59 people in what reports call the biggest mass shooting in modern American history to date.
America must learn from the lessons of previous mass shootings otherwise this tragedy will happen again. Reasonable animals evolve when their lives and the life of the pack or group are threatened. They change how they face the problem and not just move on. They don't dismiss reality. They recognize the problem and listen to reason. For those who say nothing can be done, you're wrong. There is something America can do. It is not premature to talk about gun control. This is the time to talk about it.

GnuCash In Arch Linux

I updated a number of packages today and Gnucash won't start. I immediately went to the Archlinux website to see what's happening. I can't seem to find the package in the community repo. There's a thread in AUR on how to compile Gnucash by hand no AUR helpers.

But I tried to compile goffice and webkit2, needed packages for Gnucash-git. No. It doesn't work for me.

Funny but I'm now using my Android Tablet with Gnucash app to record transactions. This is working. We need to have the stable GnuCash back. This is a stop gap on my part. Transactions don't stop when computers stop. Please don't make me go back to paper.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Poster

The Last Jedi is coming this December 2017. I can't wait. My guess is we can watch it later in the Christmas season or even later than the New Year 2018. The Filipino Film Festival season usually starts the 15th December up to January 7th. Only Filipino films are shown in theaters. Unless there's a special run, we would see it much later.
