My So Called Life - The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Embrace life -- both the sweet days and the bitter...embrace the joy and the sadness...the successes and the defeats -- for all of these things, both good and bad, have made you who you are.

The Gays Should Leave Texas - According to our Governor!

That is right people!

According to Governer Perry, the gay people of Texas should go and live in a state that has more lenient laws. Governor Perry was responding to a question about how the resolution he was signing (which technically didnt need his signature and was signed in a Christian school...HELLO! Separation of Church and State People!) would affect retired veterans who happened to be gay. This was was our wonderful Governors response:

"Texans have made a decision about marriage and if there is some other state that has a more lenient view than Texas then maybe that's a better place for them to live," Perry said.

Perry is referring to the DOMA - The Defense of Marriage Act which already states that marriage is between a man and a woman.

Technically, Perry's signature was only symbolic since the measure he signed has to be approved by voters in November. The bill he was signing basically places before the voters of Texas the option in November of ammending the Texas Constitution to outlaw gay marriage. The message is clear:

If you are QUEER, and you are HERE, then GET OUT!

It seems that we are not welcome. Hmmm. What to do about that? How bout we vote his ass out of office. Unfortunately, with the slim pickens that the democratic party has in Texas, it is unlikely to boot the republicans from the governership!

Massachusettes is lookin pretty good right about now...

Fucking republican assholes...

I cant believe I used to be one...

Now I know...I know...there are some republicans who are not assholes and not bad people. There are actually some republicans who are supportive of gay rights. Now those republicans happen to usually live in Blue States lol...but I know they are there. So my statement about "republican assholes" is simply frustration being let out....

    Wow... you know these "Christian" politicians are getting on my nerves. The Christian Coalition has got them so wrapped around their fingers that it's really sick. Then again, look at the President... Grade A Texas "Christian" Beef.. and more stupid than a cow... hmmm... I just don't know what's up with Democrats these days. Fortuantely for us, our Rep. governor kicks ass.. then again, I think she's a lesbian, but nobody's really approached the subject ;).

    Oh by the way, that's not to say that gay marriages are legal in Hawai'i... unfortunately, our general public has already voted them illegal about 10 years ago... Trust me, once the Church gets involved in any political matter and turns it into a religious debate... you can forget it.

    BTW, I find it interesting that the governor said that when Austin, the state capital of Texas, is probably the most gay-friendly city in the whole state ;)

    Rick Perry sucks (quite literally, from what I understand).
