what an amazing night!!!

Obama Winning

Prop2 in CA passing, it's the biggest victory in history for animal rights thus far

Greyhound racing banned in MA

sad about the gay marriage ban :(

i am so extremely tired. i didn't go to bed til 2am, went to Union Square with my friend and there were hundreds of people there, the streets were filled with cars and trucks honking, people playing music, screaming, jumping around, giving strangers high fives, bag pipes being played and just celebrating..it was amazing. i don't think anyone has been this excited for a president ever!!! my neighbor said people were excited when jfk won but that it wasn't anything like this.

as you may know animals that are going to be killed for food are kept in shitty conditions..so it's a bill to get rid of gestation crates for pigs, veal crates and battery cages, veal crates and gestation crates have been banned in other states but this is the first time they've had battery cages in a bill and CA is a huge egg producing state..on Oprah she had a whole episode about Prop2 and people from the egg industry were basically saying if it's passed it can put them out of business...and even if not it will cost them millions of dollars, more info here:

unfornuately, the fanfare that Obama is receiving is the same fanfare that JFK did...and we all know what happened to him...I hope his fate is not the same.
