When The Night Winds Down What Else Do You Have But Dolphins and Penguins and Karl Rove?!?
Is it at all possible that the veil of secrecy surrounding the White House and the President is the actual issue here? How many of the individuals involved have to quote secret sources? What the f***? How much work is it going to take to just get this out in the open? Why are there so many questions about this? Why the hell doesn’t President Bush, Karl Rove and Joe Wilson just get up in front of the world and the press and, more so, the American people and tell them the truth? They should just tell the world what they told the Grand Jury and lay out their case? What the hell? I doubt highly that they have any intentions to do that, even when the case is finished. Have they done that with anything? Are they going to do that with this? Once again, I highly doubt it. If they have nothing to cover up then why are they smearing the name of Joe Wilson? Sure, it’s not the White House, but the RNC that is trying to play this off, but wasn’t it the RNC that held the convention that nominated George Bush for the Presidency? Did he refuse to play with them then? What’s the deal now? Why is it that if he really disagrees with info going out there for the world to read that he isn’t telling his own party to hold off and leave it alone until the investigation is finished? I won’t even try to play the game and say that I really believe that the RNC is it’s own entity. The safest thing to say at this point, I believe, is that even if The White House isn’t orchestrating the RNC’s attacks that they are, at the very least, approving of them and have no intention of telling them to withhold their "reports" or asking them to withhold their propaganda (propaganda: information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote a political cause or point of view) long enough for the investigation to finish. These are people the president will openly embrace when it’s convenient and then not even address when it’s not. The President is willing to let his flunkies (aka Scott McClellan, who, I think, is one of the worst Press Secretaries in the history of America...just awkward and he sounds ill planned) make statements when it is good for him politically, but now that those statements have come under fire the President has decided that now it’s time to clam up like the investigators asked him to. If the President and The White House and Karl Rove have nothing to add to this because of that then why haven’t they practiced that consistently? If they could talk before than wouldn’t it benefit them, if there is nothing to hide, to come out now and tell the world?

There is something that gets me everytime no matter what. Since the general election last November I have listened to people tell me what they have to say about government and the election and why they voted or didn’t. What boggles me every time is the reasons that I have heard for why they were or were not voting for the candidate of their choice or no one. Most of the reasons were cheap excuses. I hate to say it, but, in my area, most of the people that I have talked to were duped for one reason or another toward whatever candidate they chose or their immediate lack of any candidate at all.
I find it simply stifling to think that there are that many people here who are so blatantly uninformed. That doesn’t even begin to get into all the people who are okay with being bigots.
If you ask me anyone who voted against the Gay Marriage initiatives in this state needs to look more closely at what they think is right and wrong. What the f***?!?
I want to ask a question here. Why is it that we have learned nothing as a whole nation from the Civil Rights struggle?!? Between black people and native Americans and hispanics and asians and many others we have had to face our own mistakes head on and learn to deal with them as a group and accept that we were wrong. Now what the hell is keeping us from doing that with gay people?!? With anyone?!? Gay people pay their taxes just like the rest of America. Why the hell are gay people not granted the same rights as the rest of the damn country?!? What right does anyone have to tell anyone else that they cannot get married?!? WHAT THE F*** IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOW A LOT OF PEOPLE FEEL ABOUT INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE AND GAY MARRIAGE?!? Both were frowned upon in the past. Black people were not allowed to marry white people because of the restrictions in society. Don’t even try to make it about God either. If you do I will simply ask if you are saying that the religious community didn’t use God to break up interracial marriages. Break it up boys and girls because I think this boy may be on to something. We’ll have to change plans. Let’s try this. Who wants to join the “Bigots for Jesus” Club?!? Isn’t that the only argument against gay marriage? What else is there? Isn’t it all about religion?
Oh wait a second. There is also that thing about tradition. Hee hee hee.
What was it that the President said?
"Marriage cannot be severed from it’s cultural, religious and natural roots without weakening the good influence of society."
Well, should we take a deeper look at that? I would like to, but for now I will just look at the surface. Cultural. Religious. Natural. Sounds good to me.
Let’s look at our own “culture”.
Culturally wasn’t there a time when as I mentioned earlier that two people of different colors were not supposed to marry? I think that’s putting it lightly too. I think it’s safe to say that in country where black men were killed for whistling at white women interracial marriage was a no-no. Hell, up until 1919 women were not allowed to vote. That’s only 86 years. That’s our culture boys and girls.
How about religion? Isn’t there something in the constitution about the seperation of church and state?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That is a direct quote from the Bill Of Rights in the Constitution. What the hell?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion
Do I really need to add anything to that? Is it really possible that people out there really believe there is any legal basis for that? Is it really possible that people really believe that there is nothing about a law banning gay marriage that isn’t rooted in religion and how gay people make others feel icky? Maybe those of you who are opposed to gay marriage should spend as much time examining what it is about gay people that makes you so uncomfortable rather than what you can ban. S***!!!
Oh yeah. Then we get to the natural part of it.
All I have for you here is a link.
Do I really need to say anything else on this one?
Deal with the world you live in. Just because there are people out there who say it’s going to hell, not the least of which myself, you don’t need to believe it. Just look at it and remember that without voices like mine segregation and God knows what else would still be alive and kicking.
Take part IN your government, not just a part OF IT.
