Vetonator 2: Rise of the Machine Politics

The Governator will indeed veto the gay marriage bill passed Tuesday in CA, citing a proposition passed 5 years ago, Prop. 22, which states "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."

Believe it or not, a lot has changed in 5 years. Gay marriage is now legal in Canada & Spain, and was made legal through court order in Massachusetts. And polls show that a similar prop might fare very differently today.

But Schwarzennutter is low in the polls and sinking, and the only people still standing behind him are the hard core Republican-at-any-cost people, and those people -- guess what?

They don't like queers.

Yeah, it's shocking, I know, but they actually really don't like the gays, and they don't want them to be able to live their lives in peace, you know, like not getting beat up or fired for being gay, being able to marry the person they love, and take care of them legally in a way that is comparable to what an actual legal spouse would have. Those people don't want the gays to have that.

No one has really figured out why yet.

I mean, I know that they feel threatened by the gays, but c'mon, first of all WHY, and secondly, so the fuck what? I feel threatened by all the breathtakingly fabulous people in LA who are 10 gazillion times better looking than me, thinner, and MUCH better dressed, but I'm not advocating, as much as would enjoy it, that they receive lesser legal rights than I have.

Although I am going to fantasize for a minute about Nicole Kidman being fired from her next movie for exceeding the state skin luminosity guidelines.


But back to the people who hate the gays. Oh yes. They're fond of quoting some passage from the Bible blah blah blah, which is what they do ALL THE TIME when they want something their way. This is actually a pretty effective tactic, because the Bible has some crazy-ass shit in it, and you can basically justify anything by pulling some fucked-up shit out of that book.

BTW, the Koran? Same deal. And we all saw how the shit goes down when you start justifying something that's clearly fucking wrongity-wrong-wrong by claiming that your god wants it that way.

But enough of my crazy ranting. Obviously, I hate God and America and need to go back where I came from, which my research shows would be Scotland/Ireland, circa 1730.

And Schwarzenfluffer needs to stop playing politics and do what he told us he would do, which is think and act independently, and according to his own beliefs.

Don't hold your breath.
