I can’t stand the gay marriage debate. In fact, if I hear another peep about it on the news, I’m likely to go postal (although, I don’t own gun, nor do I know where to get one; plus, loud noises scare me). But I’m pretty likely to get really mad, piping mad even.
Gay marriage is the epitome of non-issues taking over the political landscape. There is nothing important about gay marriage (I’ll apologize to members of both sides who may or may not vehemently disagree with me).
The United States of America is involved in a war on two European fronts; and our government, our president has the fucking balls to bring up the gay marriage issue. Let me give you an analogy to make it crystal clear how fucking insane this. This is akin to taking you baby to Niagara Falls and setting her down on the ledge because you saw a quarter on the pavement. You wouldn’t risk your baby’s life to become 25 cents richer, would you?
But this is what it’s come to in this country. Our government insults our intelligence on a daily basis; and I for one, am not going to take it anymore (Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” is playing as write this; seriously, it is)
To be clear, once again, this is not about my feelings toward same sex marriage. If you really want to know, I’m all for it. I don’t even see what the debate is. If you are a citizen and you want to get married to another citizen, go knock yourself out; who fucking cares about things like gender (peanuts). So let’s talk about the real issue with the gay marriage debate.
It seems that our inept president always brings up the issue whenever his ratings are sliding (or when he needs to win an election). He did this right before the 2004 election and it worked wonders (so did fixing the results in Ohio, to a certain extent, but that’s another story all together). Millions of Middle Americans forgot all about the real issues because they didn’t want to see no faggots getting married. And this is the big problem.
President Bush is promoting not only ignorance, but hate. And he does this whenever his chips are down. Now, I realize this says more about the majority (at least in terms of acreage) of this country than it does about our governing bodies and, in that sense, it’s even more disheartening. But, for what it’s worth, the President is those people (he created them in a way).
And don’t get me started on the border crap (another diversion). This is what it boils down to; Bush to Middle America: “Let’s put down the fags and the spics! This way we can all forget about your dying children in my illegal war; vote Republican in 2006!”
I wish to God that one day soon we can get this ship straight (no pun intended) and put the gay marriage crap behind us.
