Jeez, who knew? *rolling eyes*

The Regrouping of the GOP, the Rev. Phelps, and Save the Assault Weapons!

I haven’t blogged in a while, for many reasons. Lack of time being one of them, but mostly…I have actually have too much to say. I find it very difficult to stay on course because when I get started talking about one point, it inevitably leads to another, then another and I end up somewhere south of coherent. I’ve been doing some reading and imagine my “surprise” (um, not really) to find out that through all the lessons that the Republican party has learned during this election was not that people wanted more optimism from their government, not that people wanted a more honest and earnest political leader, not that people voted against the same old rhetoric, not that people could look past race and traditional party lines. Oh no, the GOP in all their infinite wisdom has learned that in order to regroup and refocus to win more elections, they must rebuild their party around social conservatism. They point to the passage of so many anti-gay measures that were on the ballots across the country. The people have spoken, they say. The “sanctity of life” and the “sanctity of marriage” is what really matters.

Excuse me?

And speaking of crazy people, I read that the “Reverend” Phelps will be protesting at Barack Obama’s grandmother’s funeral. I know this is bad, but I wish someone would just take him out. I hate to even post this link, but go ahead and check out www.godhatesfags.com. Just warms the heart, doesn’t it??

And lastly, in the most disgustingly laughable irony I ran across this story in the St. Pete Times online edition.

Oh, the sweet irony of it all

“Palin’s ‘going rogue,’ McCain aide says” is the headline of this CNN article http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/10/25/palin.tension/index.html.

Palin is getting all Mavericky on McCain.  That in itself, is just sweetest of all ironies. 

Good times.

Finally, the truth from a politician!

MIAMI, Fla. (October 17, 2008) – Florida’s popular former Governor and U.S. Senator Bob Graham has announced his opposition Amendment 2. He joins more than 200 prominent leaders and organizations on Florida Red & Blue’s Advisory Board against the so-called “Florida Marriage Protection Amendment.”

Renowned for his trademark “workdays,” ranging from serving as a busboy and a construction worker to a railroad engineer or a teacher, Graham served as Florida’s governor from 1979 to 1987 and as the state’s U.S. Senator from 1987 to 2005, notably as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Since retiring from the Senate, Graham now concentrates his efforts on the Bob Graham Center for Public Service at his undergraduate alma mater, the University of Florida.

“The law of Florida defines marriage as an institution between one woman and one man,” said Graham. “It is not necessary to amend the state constitution to say it again. However, the words of Amendment 2 go beyond redundancy. They would terminate legal rights of unmarried couples, including elderly couples. Heterosexual domestic partners would lose health, pension, and visitation rights with potentially unanticipated, very negative consequences. Floridians know the laws and their rights today – Amendment 2 is too big a risk for our future.”

In opposing Amendment 2, Graham joins other Florida leaders who oppose Amendment 2, including Republican Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, six additional members of Congress, Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, City of Miami Mayor Manny Diaz, the League of Women Voters, the NAACP, Florida’s Professional Firefighters and the Florida Education Association, among others. Broward County voter and financial expert Suze Orman also has announced her opposition to the amendment.

Written in vague and undefined language, Amendment 2 could have dramatic consequences for Florida’s committed adults who form domestic partnerships, including unmarried seniors, eliminating their ability to share important health care and pension benefits. Because four existing state laws already define marriage, Amendment 2 is unnecessary and will spark costly litigation in an effort to determine what the amendment really does.

Florida Red & Blue is the bi-partisan, statewide organization running the SayNo2 campaign, which opposes Amendment 2. For more information on Florida Red & Blue’s SayNo2 campaign, please log on to http://www.SayNo2.com.

Palin Supports Federal Amendment to Ban “Gay” Marriage

•October 21, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Ooh, color me shocked.  How nice of her to “tolerate” us though.  From www.msnbc.com

“NEW YORK – Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin says she supports a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, a break with John McCain who has said he believes states should be left to define what marriage is.

In an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network, the Alaska governor said she had voted in 1998 for a state amendment banning same sex marriage and hoped to see a federal ban on such unions.

“I have voted along with the vast majority of Alaskans who had the opportunity to vote to amend our Constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman. I wish on a federal level that’s where we would go. I don’t support gay marriage,” Palin said. She said she believed traditional marriage is the foundation for strong families.”

Sarah, you’re just an idiot.  I’m sorry, but I don’t and won’t tolerate you and your moronic notions of what YOU think is right or wrong or what constitutes a “strong family.”  I want to stop hearing that opposite sex families automatically make strong family units, because that’s just not the truth.  I want you to stand up and say to the faces of hundreds of thousands of same sex families, with or without children, that our families are “weak families.”  Please, for the love of your God, do this.  Look at a gay couple who adopted or fostered and tell them…to their face…that their family is not a strong one.  Tell them, they don’t count in America.  Tell them that you’ll take their tax money, but you won’t stand up and say “Good job, thank you for giving unwanted children a home.”  Go ahead you idiot.  Do it.  I dare you.  Go tell those kids that their moms and dads aren’t good enough, tell those kids that their families are worth less in your eyes.  You make me sick.

Do I think you’re a sanctimonious idiot?  You betcha.

 

Lesson learned…Always back up your files. Always.

Consider this my PSA to you, only without the catchy songs and cute cartoons.  Kids…back up your damn files on your computer.  Even if your computer gives you no indication that it’s going to take dive, you need to back up your files.  I kept putting it off and guess what?  My Dell died.  Fried.  I’m blogging from work because that’s how much I care about all of you out there.

There’s got be some catchy phrase that will catch on to make people want to do this, to save the heartache and misery and freaking out that I’m going through right now. 

“Give a hoot, don’t pollute” = “Give a damn, backup your RAM.”

“How a bill becomes a law” = “How a Dell becomes your hell.”
