The Last Straw

From CNN: "President Bush announced this morning that he supports an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to ban same-sex marriage."

I know there are lots of people who agree with him and that's fine. You're entitled to your own opinion. But I'm done making coherent arguments. My new, sleek and streamlined argument? Our president is one stupid-ass mother fucker.

Actually, I prefer "addle-pated pig-fucking sack of monkey shit".

What a fucking tard- I'm so pissed right now. We weren't sticking our noses in his business when he was doing coke, now were we? Puh-leze. Fucking assclown...

it appears we've both come to the same conclusion :)

Thanks for the laugh! I couldn't have said it better myself.

Yes, lets preserve marriage for Britney Spears and 90-year-old millionaires so they can marry 20-year-old strippers. This is most definitely an institution that needs "protecting".

In his speech this morning, W. said that he wants to protect marriage, I donít know maybe six or seven times. From who? From movie stars who meet, marry and divorce in-side of six months?

How does comparing it to "Britney Spears" and "90-year-old millionaires" with their strippers make gay marriage any more right? It's like saying "well, if they can defecate on your lawn, I'll defecate on yours as well." Using that argument, gay marriage is just as deviant as the other examples you mentioned.

I'll agree with that, Bush is an asshat.
If by some reason he gets re-elected and someone doesn't kill him I'm moving to Canada.

Once a stupid-ass mother fucker, always a stupid-ass mother fucker. Hopefully our long 4-year nightmare will be over come November...

i love it when you talk dirty sense.

NakedJen has a great post about how the wedding announcements for same-sex marriages are including how long the couple has been together, and the shortest amount of time is 10 years. I think they should post that for all couples getting married, and I just wonder whether gay couples respect marriage more than heteros because it means more, at least at this point in time.

GWB *is* an asshat. I hope to hell he isn't re-selected.

Attempts at humor aside, Erik, it is not the same as "well, if they can defecate on your lawn, I'll defecate on yours as well." And using that type of analogy is typical of most "slippery slope" type arguments against same sex marriages.
The result of a gay marriage is two happy people. No victims. That is the point. Who would be the victim?
Of course you are entitled to your opinion but that doesn't make it all right to restrict others and deny them the same rights that other enjoy and discard so readily.

I actually went to the bathroom and cried when I read about it this morning. This administration is giving the green light to bigotry.

It is sick.

Marriage shouldn't be a government issue. In fact, I don't even think the government should issue marriage licenses. Marriage is about the relationship between whomever and whomever, not about legalease.

Posted by: Ginny at February 24, 2004 3:36 PM

Oh, and that has nothing to do with whether I think gay marriage is 'right' or 'wrong.' I actually don't give a fuck either way, I like to stay the hell out of peoples' personal lives. Unless of course it involves stepping on the freedom of someone else.

Posted by: Ginny at February 24, 2004 3:39 PM

Living in a country where gay marriage is legal for some time now, this whole issue is so strange to me. It's like jumping back centuries in time...

Posted by: Sweety at February 24, 2004 4:01 PM

Mind if I use your new, sleek and streamlined argument? I like it a lot. I am so sad that this man is in charge of our country, along with all of his good ol' buddies. If he is elected for another four years, I think Canada may see a large growth of new citizens!

One of my clients actually came into work this morning and the first thing she said was "Guess what? George Bush is being an ignorant asshole again." I wasn't surprised at all by this.

Posted by: Mel at February 24, 2004 5:00 PM

don't make me report you to the department of big brother ... er, homeland security for that "terrorist" talk. after all, talking bad about the president means you're unpatriotic, right?

Posted by: tj at February 24, 2004 5:10 PM

Words CANNOT describe the anger. I can't wait to get my absentee ballot. Think I'm allowed to write "FUCK YOU MOTHERFUCKER" next to Bush's name when i submit my vote???

Posted by: Irma at February 24, 2004 5:16 PM

Well all my thoughts on the Shrub have been well-covered here, so I'll just say that I will NEVER understand why people are so threatened by gays and their wanting to marry. And don't give me the Bible rhetoric, either. That's just an excuse.

Very nice. Very very nice.

Wordy McWord to that.

Posted by: Kimmie at February 24, 2004 11:21 PM

Hallelujah man...who the hell cares what two consenting adults do?

What really blows my mind is that there are people out there that think this ban would be a good thing.

Posted by: Joe at February 25, 2004 12:21 AM

Ok, I am the lone voice here. Just call me Maytag. Being gay is not a race, this is a lifestyle. Since when does the constitution provide protection for lifestyles? Hammer away...

Posted by: wlfldy at February 25, 2004 9:53 AM

Gay is not a lifestyle and it ISN"T a choice. One is born gay or not. Just like one is born white or black or something inbetween. I have the right to marry who I damn well want to. Never mind the fact the government should not be dictating morals. It is Law enforcing and governing, not Moral dictatorship. I do not want someone else's morals imposed on me.
