Seething hatred

I am so fucking pissed. Blind with rage. Irritated to the point of wanting to destroy things and people. I just can't believe that it's the year 2004 and the leader of the free fucking world wants a constitutional amendment simply to quell his homophobic fear and ignorance. For fuck's sake, can't we just let people live? CAN'T WE LET PEOPLE BE HAPPY?

He keeps going on and on about how it's not right for "activist judges to use the courts to arbitrarily force their will on the people", but what the hell is HE doing? He's using the most blatant abuse of power I can think of to force HIS will on the people. Does he not understand that not everyone in this country is a conservative Christian homophobe?

I just can't believe this might happen. Talk about your shock and awe... I'm in both. The arguments against gay marriage are so fucking weak. Sanctity of marriage? Bullshit! Gays who commit to each other stay together as long or longer than straight couples. Certainly longer than American Christian's wholesome Britney "Savin' it 'til my weddin' day" Spears. Not to mention that they're more open and honest with each other sexually, so unlike the majority of straight couples, they're not cheating on each other as much to get what they really want.

What else do they have? The "slippery slope" argument? Fuck that. Legalizing alcohol didn't legalize heroin. Legalizing abortion didn't legalize murder (at least, in my opinion). Legalizing gay marriage isn't going to legalize anything else without the people having a say in it.

Religious arguments? You can shove those straight up your ass right now. My God says gays can get married and unless your God can kick my God's ass, then your argument is not valid.

Someone PLEASE give me one valid friggin' reason why gays should not be allowed to get married. Just one. Give me one really valid and acceptable reason why this HUGE group of people should be denied the rights of straight people.

I just can't believe it. With the war crumbling at his feet, a defecit the size of the next planet he wants to drill, more people without jobs than there have been in my life, can GWB really say that he's got nothing better to do than take another civil right, beat it up, and drag it through town behind his pickup?

Fuck you, Mr. "President". I hope one of your daughters turns out to be a lesbian, and the other one gets knocked up in the ghetto.

Re:
I don't know, since the Constitution doesn't mention a separation of church and state.

when i went to see margaret cho, she talked about gay marriage, and also britney's 2am marriage. she said "if marriage was so fucking sacred, it wouldn't be available 24 hours a day."

i don't think anyone should get married. or if they do, it should be a spiritual and personal thing, not a legal one. if marriage is legally binding, whatever happened to the separation of church and state?

and the last comment i will make is about george w. he is obviously full of it; if he gave a shit about anything that happened to anyone in this country, he would be pouring millions of dollars into education, not outer space. he would be funding employment programs and giving tax cuts for student loan payments and investigating corporate crime (which costs the country more lives and money each year than street crime could ever aspire to) instead of sending marines off to die in iraq (like my sister's best friend, who died in an accident during training in iraq last summer), giving contracts to his friends' companies and cutting taxes for the uber-rich. grrrr. this is why i don't like to think about our lame ass president, it gets me all pissed off.

Re:
What good would "pouring millions of dollars into education" do?

Washington D.C. spends more per student than any other city in the entire nation, and not coincidentally they have the absolute lowest test scores and student performance of any city in the nation.

What amazes me is that liberals continue to call for more spending despite all the evidence that more spending isn't the answer and often is part of the problem.

Re:
hmmm. is that only public schools in DC or is that all schools in DC? i ask because i am from that area and i know that the public schools are pathetic and anyone with money goes to private.

and yeah, changing how money is spent would be better than just adding more, but i know that when a school has a PAPER SHORTAGE (which happened in my high school and we couldn't all get copies of what we needed) it's hard to work with those kinds of things.

lastly, the money for education stuff was really saying that instead of outer space, maybe we could focus on what's going on here. when is spending more money on education part of the problem? i'm curious.

Re:
Why shouldn't rich people get tax cuts?

The top 5% of income earners in the United States pay 40% of the income taxes collected.

The top 50% pay over 98% of all income taxes collected.

Logically speaking, any tax cut is going to give the most back to those from whom the most is taken.

What amazes me in this instance is that it's the very progressive tax policy that liberals have advocated that results in rich people getting such large sums back whenever taxes are cut.

Of course as a percentage of earned income, the poorest income tax paying Americans got the most back.

These are facts you can easily research and verify if you don't believe me.

Re:
dude. i'm not saying i didn't appreciate my tax refund (and i'm way far from rich). but if i had to fund my education myself, so that i can be educated, work and be a productive part of society and all that, i think i should get a deductible for the amount i paid on my loan this year. but the priority seems to be people with a higher amount of disposable income than i could ever hope to imagine. i guess the top 50% pay 98% of taxes because they give more money in taxes than i could ever dream of making?

the second coming...
of watergate is nearing...oh thank you god of gods...let's see..no weapons of mass destruction (lied about that), the reason for the war in iraq (still no weapons of mass destruction), gay marriage (i would think he'd be all for it since it would allow him to marry rumsfeld or ashcroft), a deficit that even surpasses reagan's (by the way, when IS that bastard gonna die)..more lies...and just in time for reelection...yes, life is good....and..

PLEASE LET MY GAY, LESBIAN, TRANSGENERED, TRANSSEXUAL, AFRICAN-AMERICAN, NATIVE AMERICAN, LATINO, PACIFIC-ISLANDER BROTHERS AND SISTERS LIVE IN PEACE ! ! ! ! !

FUCK YOU GW AND EVERY OTHER WHITE, CONSERVATIVE, UN-CHRISTIAN HOMOPHOBE NEO-NAZI COCKSUCKERS!

Re: the second coming...
y'know...with all the real sickos in the world, like the kind who pluck innocent kids off the street and kill them, rape old ladies, use babies as drug-smuggling decoys...why is the gay-marriage thing falling into seemingly the same taboo category? If you are not gay, then what do you care? If you are single, what do you care? None of this in any shape or form even affects you! Does it affect your tax refund? No? Then shut the fuck up. Are they asking you to be happy for them? No? Then shut the fuck up. Every time the taxes are redone so us regular straight folks are supposed to get a break, we still get screwed. I have a kid and a house and still wind up paying in because it's still not enought to write off. Hey if gay folks want in on that, come on! We'll be broke and aggravated together! What difference does it make??? I say let them ALL get married- married folks get better deals financially on everything (usually), esp if you both work, because of "double income"...seems to me, the more the married, the more they'd spend, therefore getting our sorry asses out of the deficit from hell....or did I miss something....

Re: the second coming...
Reagan's deficits? I believe Democrats controlled congress during his term and they write and pass the spending bills. Reagan's only real fault was not vetoing more often.

Clearly the tax cuts he passed didn't cause the deficit since income tax revenues to the federal government went up every year of his administration.

Oh, and just so's you know... Cheney's sister is a lesbian. Yup, you heard me. Your mainstream media doesn't cover that too much now do they. Not that they should, cause it ain't no kind of news, but it just serves to point out the blatant hypocricy of these people.

Well said, Steve. You've encapsulated my thoughts and frustration exactly.

And if you want to get even more riled up, make sure to watch Meet the Press on Sunday morning- GWB is supposed to be interviewed by Tim Russert.

Are you aware of what is required to amend the Constitution?

The process is the essence of a representative democracy, unlike the judicial anarchy currently underway in Massachusettes.
