Gay Old Party

The GOP is pathetic. Hate Thy Neighbor...

A Shameful Political Ploy:
Senator Russ Feingold
Tue Jun 06, 2006

The federal marriage amendment, which would write discrimination into the Constitution, is an obvious attempt to change the subject from topics that the Congress should be addressing to a hot button social issue intended to appeal to certain factions. On Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Frist plans to hold a vote on this mean-spirited proposal. It has n
o chance of receiving the two-thirds majority required for constitutional amendments. The only thing bringing it up now will accomplish is to push Congress further away from the issues it should be addressing and engage the Senate of the United States in a shameful political ploy."'
Umm, could you guys start to work on the problems that are really fucking up the U.S. Healthcare, wages, education, infrastructure, getting us out of illegal wars.... and on and on and on and on and on..............

Senate Rejects Gay Marriage Ban
"'The Republican leadership is asking us to spend time writing bigotry into the Constitution,' said Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, which legalized gay marriage in 2003. 'A vote for it is a vote against civil unions, against domestic partnership, against all other efforts for states to treat gays and lesbians fairly under the law.'

In response, Hatch fumed: 'Does he really want to suggest that over half of the United States Senate is a crew of bigots?'"
Kennedy can't suggest this but I can state it factually. Over half of the U.S. Senate is a crew of bigots.

TDS had on bigot extraordinaire Bill Bennet last night. Stewart pummeled his ass on the "gay marriage" debate. If you wan't to know how to discuss this with the wingers, watch this entire interview.

Jon Stewart hammers Bill Bennet:
"Stewart: So why not encourage gay people to join in in that family arrangement if that is what provides stability to a society?

Bennett: Well I think if people are already members of families...

Stewart: What? (almost spitting out his drink)

Bennett: They're sons and they're daughters..

Stewart: So that's where the buck stops, that's the gay ceiling.

Bennett: Look, it's a debate about whether you think marriage is between a man and a women.

Stewart: I disagree, I think it's a debate about whether you think gay people are part of the human condition or just a random fetish.
Support our troops by allowing incompetence to run the show. I think it is going to take a bit more than a yellow ribbon magnet to fix this fuckup:

Data Theft Affected Most in Military:
"Social Security numbers and other personal information for as many as 2.2 million U.S. military personnel -- including nearly 80 percent of the active-duty force -- were among the data stolen from the home of a Department of Veterans Affairs analyst last month, federal officials said yesterday, raising concerns about national security as well as identity theft."

Look "science" I don't need you giving me any more reasons to crave a beer, OK?

Alcohol may help protect the heart:
"An alcoholic drink a day can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease in men, a new study finds, but women get almost the same benefit with only one drink a week."
