I understand there's a need to have at least a two-party system, a counter viewpoint, another opinion to make things better, to shape an idea into a more complete viewpoint and plan, but when the other party refuse to perform in a constructive fashion and blatantly refuse to make the common good a priority and succumbs to perform solely for the gain of power and other incentives, why do we still put so much weight on that?
Right now being a Republican either means you are a mouthpiece with misinformation to mislead people intentionally or you are dumb or bigoted enough to let these people riled up your inner racism or homophobia. To be fair, maybe there are indeed Republicans that resents these "extremists" who are taking their party hostage but they are holding their tongue until these people go away. But they won't ever go away if nobody speaks up against them.
Bipartisanship won't work. It could be because Obama is half-black, or maybe it'll be the same if he's white. I'm convinced that there's a list of talking points being passed around by the Republicans on how to criticize him as a president. A electronic newsletter or maybe they are fed through Fox News. I wonder if there's a more creative way to update us on his progresses. I do like how he's engaging the Republicans in televised summits to debate on issues. If only people would watch it and the stations will show it at full length. Lately Jon Stewart appeared in Bill O'Reilly's show and Bill O'Reilly did show some portions of the entire interview, Bill O'Reilly was arrogant, condescending and jerk-like throughout the whole thing and it's not until you see the full-length version on Fox News' website that you see the brilliant counterpoint from Jon. It's funny what editing can do.
Speaking of Jon Stewart, this week they did a special segment on the Republican National Committee that was held in Hawaii. You should watch the clip, the hypocrisy is hilarious.
Michael Steele saying that it's not a vacation while wearing a Hawaiian shirt with a lei around his neck. Going to Hawaii to talk about fiscal responsibility is almost too easy. I especially like the last minute when John Oliver was interviewing a lady and can;t help shaking his head, staring at the camera and says "wow..." just stared in disbelief. It is too easy.
The whole Hawaii RNC segment is really well produced and John Oliver was really great. Given he's interviewing lost sheep, but the skills! Love it.
This piece of nonsense...
New Hampshire Representative Nancy Elliot making her case to repeal same-sex marriage in her state. Apparently thinking doesn't come easy to her...
“This is not normal and I had to think about it awhile. What we are talking about? I started thinking. We’re talking about taking the penis of one man and putting it into the rectum of another man and wiggling it around in excrement, and you have to think. I’m not sure. Would I allow that to be done to me? All of us that could happen to you. Would you like that to happen to you? Is that normal? Is that something we want to portray as the same as the one-flesh union between a man and a woman? I don't know.”
"I heard yesterday from a mother that in 5th grade in Nashua, they were given as a part of the classroom instructions, naked pictures of a man, showing presentations of anal sex... This is directly to the bill because we have made a marriage of same sex. They are now teaching it in the public schools. They are showing it to our 5th graders how they can actually perform this kind of sex and they are condoning, they are saying that this is normal. And this is something they might want to try, that is the context of the lesson, that this is something that you as 5th graders may want to try. I see it as a real problem of our society, I see it as a real affront to our citizens that their children are subjected to this. So I think it is important that we revisit what we did, we made a mistake and we should repeal it."
Well, how many kinds of wrong can you find in her statements? It's almost like a game.
1. Anal sex is not exclusively homosexuals. Straight folks can have anal sex too. On the other hand Lesbians might not require it. Some gay relationship I know doesn't require anal sex either. Can they get married? And no, you don't necessarily have to wiggle your penis in excrement. It's called douching. Being a douche bag, she should know.
2. Would I allow that to be done to me? All of us that could happen to you. Does it mean that once same sex marriage is legal, everyone has to be fucked anally against their will? Given the gross-out strategy can be effective, but how did she come to that conclusion?
3. Is that normal? Define normal. Why do we all have to be normal? It's not normal to win the lottery and still tons of people invest small amounts to achieve this anormally. Food allergy is not normal, being a bigot is not normal, being 100% "normal" is not normal. What is "normal"?
4. Is that something we want to portray as the same as the one-flesh union between a man and a woman? By that, she means getting fucked up the ass. No, I don't compare sex with the "holy" matrimony between two drunks in Vegas. I don't go around marriage ceremonies and think of what kind of sex the couple is going to have and what the hell is a one-flesh union? Siamese twins that decided to wed each other?
5. I heard yesterday from a mother that in 5th grade in Nashua. How freaking convenient to start your story like that... wow! If there's really a school showing naked pictures of men to 10 years old and tell them you should start experimenting with bum-fuckery. You should sue them, the teacher might be loosening up the kids so he/she could do that to them. I'm calling bullshit on this one. I doubt that such a mother or school ever existed. The proof being naked pictures of a man, showing presentations of anal sex... It's like she's afraid of naked men and anal sex is only perform amongst men.
No doubt Representative Eliott is not having the best sex lives in the world. Her views on sex is that it's dirty and disgusting. It's probably a symptom on an unhappy marriage. Maybe she should try to improve hers before budding her head into others.
