ONTD Political


fter months of contentious campaigning on both sides of the issue, AP is reporting that North Carolina voters have approved Amendment One. The constitutional revision bans not only same-sex marriage, but civil unions and domestic partnerships as well. Voter turnout is expected to break 2008′s primary record of 2.1 million. Opponents got reports earlier in the day that young voters in some areas were receiving incorrect ballots preventing them from voting on the amendment. Conservatives are celebrating a victory, but the vote count so far seems to mirror polling that consistently found that voters were largely unaware of the full impact of the measure. The majority of people in North Carolina clearly do not support this kind of anti-gay discrimination, but misinformation won the day.

Congratulations, you bigotted assholes.

Yeah. The wires need to be aimed away from the flame in the center, as if they were the bottom of an ice cream cone shape. I would think that the soup-can part being a couple inches below the candle, plus the lines going up towards something big like a hula hoop or a large embroidery ring (or, hell, just taped to the ceiling in a wide circle), would manage to be safe, but definitely test.

It occurs to me that since it's up high, people wouldn't be close enough to tell the difference between fake and real candles, though.
