morality versus legality

So yesterday I found out there was a longshot possibility of Larry Elder being the Master of Ceremonies at an event we're doing in October, but it looks like instead we're getting Dennis Prager. I was reading over his bio and looking at some articles he's written and found this little nugget over at Townhall.com.
First, the Left, which is largely secular, regards morality not as absolute, but as relative. This inevitably leads to moral confusion, and no one likes to be morally confused. So instead of moral absolutes, the Left holds legal absolutes. "Legal" for the Left is what "moral" is for the Right. The religious have a belief in God-based moral law, and the Left believes in man-made law as the moral law.

Second, whereas they cannot change God's laws, those on the Left can and do make many of society's laws. In fact, the Left is intoxicated with law-making. It gives them the power to mold society just as Judeo-Christian values did in the past. Unless one understands that leftist ideals function as a religion, one cannot understand the Left.

I'm not exactly sure what I want to say about this beyond the fact that I enthusiastically agree with his contention. The Left's love of the law and denial of an absolute right and wrong became especially annoying to me during the Iraq war, which Prager also goes over a bit in his article...

Whatever their feelings about George W. Bush or about attacking Iraq, for most of those on the Left, the rightness or wrongness of toppling Saddam Hussein's regime was determined by its legality (i.e., whether it was authorized by the U.N. Security Council). On the other hand, for those who supported attacking Iraq, whether the war was deemed legal played no role in their assessment of its rightness or wrongness.
To those who supported removing Saddam Hussein by force, if the United Nations did not authorize it, it was a reflection on the morality of the United Nations, not the morality of the war.

So, anyway, it seems like we've got a pretty good MC on our hands for the event, and if anyone in the LA area is interested in attending tickets start at $250 and its on October 19th in Santa Monica.

I feel really out of it today. I just want to go home and play some DOTA (Frozen Throne) and watch the news with my hunny.

Why am I awake at 7:30 on a saturday morning? I passed out at like nine last night with a sore throat and when I woke up at 2 a.m. it was worse. Now my body hurts. And I'm not sure if I really slept after two.

Why is everyone having drama right now? I wish there was something I could do for all of my friends right now but sadly there isn't. Just sit by and watch them struggle I guess...listen to them when they need it...Except I feel like I let a few people down last night by getting sick and falling asleep without even calling them to let them know what was up. My thumbs hurt this morning along with the rest of my upper body. I'm not making any sense, but hey at least I'm writing! Maybe I should just keep typing.

What's wrong with me?

it's been awhile

I don't know why I can't seem to post consistently anymore, especially considering I'm in front of the computer for about 12 hours a day...I guess things have just been kind of crazy. First of all, our Arnold event didn't go quite as expected because of the air traffic control problem....the governor didn't show up >< Luckily all the donors and volunteers took the news well and instead we got a phone call from the governor which was broadcasted throughout the ballroom. Afterwards all of us coworkers went out and got hammered and even though I got in a half hour late the next morning, I was the first one in =)

Hm...what else is new...maybe this is why I never write anymore. My life is just like one big long monotonous day that never ends >< The weekends pass by too quickly and the week drags on endlessly. Sigh.

At least it looks like we're gonna take it in November after all =) I would write something about the CBS memos but I feel like anything I write has probably already been said better by someone else in the blogosphere. Someday soon I will have something to say ><

quiz results

In an attempt to avoid doing work at work I took a couple of these quizzes. I'd say my results for the "Better Relationship" quiz are pretty accurate but obviously the Personality one has some kinks to be worked out...or I'm seriously confusing/contradictory. My comments on the results of the quiz are (italicized).

20 Questions to a Better Relationship

eXpressive: 8/10
Practical: 4/10
Physical: 5/10
Giver: 8/10

You are a XSYG--Expressive Sentimental Physical Giver. This makes you a Sex Bomb.

You are sexy sex sex sex! The sexness! You are the sexiest, hottest and most charismatic of all types. You are a captivating speaker and a great dinner date -- relaxed, self-effacing, charming and generous (wow so far I'm liking this quiz haha). Your type probably has origins in something sad -- trying to keep the peace in a tough family situation (bleh), or an early heartbreak -- and you'll probably want to address and resolve that at some point, but in your relationships that heartache is pure gold!

You lie effortlessly -- not necessarily a bad thing. You can have problems with fidelity (maybe...when I'm not getting enough attention or I'm not happy). You need frequent praise and validation (I definitely need this from a significant other), and in seeking it you can make decisions that aren't consistent with your general good judgment. In other words, don't cheat on your significant other just because someone is paying attention to you.

You strongly dislike conflict, and will avoid it (always if possible). Like an XPYG, you give so much of yourself to your partner that you feel dismissed and unappreciated if you don't get the same in return (YES! except my hunny Paul gives me everything I need and more in return!). But you internalize your feelings more and have a hard time getting over them. You don't *want* to cheat -- you just keep finding yourself in vulnerable situations. But you'll stay with your partner in the long run from guilt and a desire to please. (So true...exactly how it was with George).

Your sex life will always be hot (yay! I hope this is true haha). You are one of the rare people who can keep the fires of passion going forever -- if you find a good match. Find another XSYG and you will never need (or want) anyone else again.

Of the 59526 people who have taken this quiz, 8.8 % are this type.

20 Questions to a Better Personality

Wackiness: 50/100
Rationality: 30/100
Constructiveness: 80/100
Leadership: 40/100

You are a SECF--Sober Emotional Constructive Follower. This makes you a Hippie (Gads I'm a hippie >< I hope I don't get fired for this haha).

You are passionate about your causes and steadfast in your commitments (this is true). Once you've made up your mind, no one can convince you otherwise (also true for the most part). Your politics are left-leaning, and your lifestyle choices decidedly temperate and chaste. (Whoa, whoa, whoa...I'm definitely not your traditional conservative but to say my politics are "left-leaning" has to be stretching things a bit doesn't it?).

You do tremendous work when focused, but usually you operate somewhat distracted (dead on). You blow hot and cold, and while you normally endeavor on the side of goodness and truth, you have a massive mean streak which is not to be taken lightly. You don't get mad, you get even (hm...really? I'm pretty sure this isn't true but I guess you'd have to ask my friends).

Please don't get even with this web site.

Of the 18434 people who have taken this quiz since tracking began (8/17/2004), 10.9 % are this type.

party's over

So I'm back at work now and completely exhausted. Paul and I started driving up around 10:30 in the morning on Friday and stopped off at the outlets in Gilroy (which were having their labor day sales) for a couple hours. Then we stopped at Lion City (a Chinese market) to pick up some groceries so we could make my family spring rolls for dinner. After dinner my friend Patrick came out from San Jose and we went to City Beach for a couple drinks and just to talk and chill. He approved =)

On Saturday my mom took me to this Chinese chiropractor who told me I don't have tendonitis, I actually dislocated my thumbs or something (both of them ><) and my neck is out of alignment which is throwing my whole body off. So Paul had to put this Chinese herbal stuff on me for two nights and bandage up my arms with this gauze to hold it in place and then help me get my thumb braces on (which I'm supposed to wear all the time for the next 2-4 weeks but I can't wear them except when Paul's around because I can't function with them on).

Anywho, after the Chinese doctor my dad rushed my mom and sister off to SFO to catch their flight to Japan and Paul and I napped until my dad came back to take us to TK Noodle for lunch. Then after lunch we stopped off at my grandma's nursing home to visit with her for awhile (I think she liked Paul too) and then we went home and sat around and napped until it was time for dinner with my dad at 3-6-9 (this Chinese cafe). After dinner my buddy Alan came by to pick us up to go clubbing at the DNA Lounge in S.F., but because one of the girls we went with was only 17 we couldn't get in there and ended up at Paradise Lounge instead, which I think was probably more fun than DNA Lounge anyway (too many fobs in the line at DNA Lounge and I hear it gets packed which I never like).

Sunday I got my haircut, hung out with my grandma and then had dinner with my dad and Paul at a Japanese restaurant before driving down (from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. ><).

On Monday Paul had to go back to Riverside to move so I flea bombed our apartment with my roomies and headed out to Manhattan Beach with Thelma and some of her boys. I actually got a little tan too =)

Okay, now you are up to date...as if you really wanted to know huh =) Oh well too bad for you hehe.

P.S. I feel much more normal now.

this way or that

There's actually a lot I want to/could write about right now. But I don't know...I also feel like curling up and taking a nap in the conference room. I just feel really out of it...spacey...no work for me tomorrow yay! I've been reading my old online journals from freshman year of college and I'm discovering that I blocked a lot of stuff out...like the fact that I wrote a paper for George when I had one due myself, and while he took a nap because he was tired from pledging. Man was I a chump or what. What else...ah yes...my hunny directed me to this situation. These people are trying to destroy my UCLA =(
"The university as a whole is continuing to move in an elitist direction," Palma/Saracho said...

Duh moron, a university is supposed to be elitist, that's the whole freaking point of it...a good university that is. It's not supposed to be easy to get into....that's called a junior college or maybe csu...but not a UC and certainly not UCLA. Bleh sorry if that sounded snotty and incoherent (I think being in the office all day has gotten to me) but it bugs me how liberals are always trying to sneak affirmative action into the UC system...

Okay I'm going to end this cause I feel really really weeird....maybe it was all the orange clean I used to clean my station just now.
