Actually I wasn't even going to post about this FAIL in Maine, but when perusing the "comments" section, I ran across this....hold on to your hats, it's a doozey!!
"The only problem I have with repealing gay marriage is that it propagates gayness. Let me explain. Homos claim they are born being gay, so that means it is genetic, and heritable. In biological terms homo genes are a defect, an evolutionary dead end. If we discourage gayness, then homos are more likely to marry hetero and breed and pass on their homo genes. Well, if we encourage gayness, people with the homo genes will be more likely to stick with other homos and less likely to breed and pass on their defective homo genes. If we encourage gayness, evolution will naturally eliminate the defective gay genes from the population and then the gay epidemic problem in this country will be much smaller. Just by being homos, homos will eliminate themselves. I say by all means we should encourage them to eliminate themselves. "
Now, for anyone who may have had doubts about the "GAY GENE", this pretty well sums it up, or NOT!! The ignorance abounds in this country and this dumb ass isn't afraid of putting their stupid thoughts in writing.
What are these homophobes afraid of? The so-called Religious Right, is so wrapped up in their own selfish agenda, they have no room in their minds for love and fairness for their fellow man. The concept of free-thinking is foreign in their world. At one time I was amazed that these people could be so easily influenced by lies and distortions of fact - but now it has become commonplace. We see it daily with the influence that FAUX NOISE has on the brain dead.
Well the GOP is managing to carry the banner of OBSTRUCTIONISM rather well. The fact is, since Obama took office, the GOP has blocked and stalled important legislation for the working man. This is all for publicity sake, no doubt. There are thousands of unemployed who have exhausted their benefits, and the rethugs have manipulated the legislative process to keep this bill on hold.
I should hope that those who are now without any income, realize who is to blame in this mess. The democrats caved and allowed for additional tax cuts within this bill to appease these fukktards - and they still want to drag their feet. My heart breaks, thinking of these people, and their dread facing the upcoming holidays. The Congress and Senate people will be shopping and spending time with their families - while these many, may be facing foreclosure, homelessness and yes, possibly suicide.
Yes, they are obstructionists in every sense of the word. Obama has tried reasoning and bipartisanship...but who are the ones unwilling to reach across the aisle here? We know that answer well.
I watched (and became nauseous) John Boehner on John King's CNN show last Sunday, and I became really irate hearing repeatedly - "we know what is best for the people." Since when has the republican asswipes known what is good for the country? They managed to keep an alcoholic, mentally deficient man in the WH for eight years and allowed him to rip the Constitution to shreds - but they (the party of NO) know what is best for all. That would include turning a blind eye on the economy also. It would also include sending countless young Americans to fight and die in an unneccessary war - based on lies and ignorance. So Boehner, as an Ohioian - I'm ashamed that you represent my state - and if you choose to fall off the face of the earth and take your lies and bullshit with you - I'M GOOD WITH THAT!!
As for the EIGHT bills Boehner says the GOP has on health reform....fuggedaboutit!! For all the show and pretense of these morons...it is a rip-off on pre-existing conditions. The people would be short changed miserably, but the insurance companies would still be free to reap their massive profits AT YOUR EXPENSE!
ONE YEAR AGO TODAY, WE ELECTED BARACK OBAMA AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
I believe he has had an uphill battle these past 10 months (since inauguration), but has remained non-plussed and dedicated. Am I 100% happy with everything - NO! But that is democracy. No one will ever be truly happy with every decision made, but I would say I am 90% satisfied. I believe he has to get more firm in his stances and quit trying to appease the unappeasable.
One more thing, because I keep forgetting to post this thought....Michelle Bachmann!! She is "organizing" a health reform protest tomorrow in D.C. and wants all the protesters to "walk the halls of Congress" and look each representative in the eye and tell them they don't want this plan. And dumb fuck Hannity wants to be there to see "democracy at work in the U.S."
This could be interesting - seeing if D.C. security has the guts to allow thousands (cough) get through security and then just "walk the halls." All it takes is one of the whackos to slip a gun through security (not totally unimaginable) and go postal in the House of Congress. This just boggles the mind.
As for Bachmann - since she has perpetuated her thoughts of NOT filling out the census forms in April - I say to everyone in her district - PLEASE FOLLOW HER LEAD - DO NOT FILE YOUR CENSUS FORMS! that's one sure way to eliminate her district and her job! OMG that would be terrific.
OK, I've bored you enough with my blathering....I am sneezing like crazy and have a snot filled head (sorry for the visual), and thegrandson now has a massive ear infection and still home from school. I have been told I am not high risk enough for the H1N1 shot - which is no problem, because there isn't any vaccines here at the moment. So if I die - just throw my body in the nearest pig sty!!!
(hmmm. spell check doesn't recognize "asswipes.") I'm shocked. LOL
