Am I right?
Two days, really.
In the last 48 hours, the Supreme Court of the United States gutted the long standing, and until now, entirely nonpartisan "Voter's Rights Act."
Based on the notion that times have changed and racism no longer exists in America.
(Love ya, Paula! Really, I do! But, seriously, when you are in a hole, stop digging.)
The same argument could be used on the topic of the Second Ammendment.
"Times have changed."
Not 24 hours later, SCOTUS struck down the odious "Defense of Marriage Act..."
(Good for them!)
... And sent California's even more odious Prop. 8 back to Sacramento, making the issue of "same sex marriage" (or, as I like to call it, "equal rights for all Americans,") a state issue.
Which strikes The Blog as weird, ball-less, and not very surprising.
So, Congratulations to all my LGBT friends! In 13 of the 50 states, anyway. Still can't figure out why SCOTUS would rule that equal rights is a state issue and not a federal one. Celebrate tonight. But, you (we) still have a long fight ahead of you (us.)
... had a few choice words for the SCOTUS' decision.
Which raises the question, "Why is this woman still talking?"
And, my Representative, Nancy Pelosi, had two choice words about the batshit crazy Senator's opinion.
Last night, Texas state Senator Wendy Davis and a whole lot of constituents, successfully engaged in a good, old-fashioned, filibuster, ended an attempt to pass SB 5, a draconian attempt to limit abortion in Texas.
Within hours, Texas Governor Rick Perry called for another "emergency session" to re-address the issue, next week.
Because, according to Gov. Perry, "Texans care about the sanctity of life."
Ironically, at the same time that the filibuster went down, the state of Texas, put a convict to death, for the 500th time.
The Blog could say a thing or two about this.
But, FOB, John Fugelsang, says it better.
Let me clarify something about my opposition to the death penalty.
The Blog believes that there are certain criminals, (rapists, murderers and child molesters,) that deserve to die.
But, until the day comes that not one single, wrongly convicted, innocent person is sentenced to death...
(And The PC believes that science will, one day, probably soon, prevent that from happening.)
... The death penalty is wrong.
(Not to mention, a stupidly expensive plan, that costs taxpayers millions.)
The Blog dares his "Christian," "Conservative" friends to disagree.
