Republican Douchebags “Protecting” Marriage Again

30 06 2008

Remind me again why it is that marriage only needs protecting from the gays around election season?  Oh that’s right, it’s because Republicans have no positive accomplishments to point to so they once again drag out the old dead horse that is the gay marriage ban to get the conservative bigot vote out to the polls.  Like clockwork, but much more cynical…and more gay.

Most of the ten sponsors are pretty predictable but there are two Senators that ooze especially pungent hypocrisy for sponsoring such an amendment: Sens. David Vitter (R-La.) and Larry Craig (R-Idaho).

Jesus’ General made some fantastic ads to help the Republicans promote the effort.

Call The DSCC About FISA Now!

25 06 2008

We all regularly get requests for money from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) so I thought it would be appropriate for us to all call them and let them know that they can expect no more money and no support from us if the Senate leadership is unable to step up, find some spine, and block the FISA compromise. Please take two minutes to call and politely express your disgust on this critical issue.

Phone the DSCC now at (202) 224-2447

The money walks if their bullshit talks.

Whiny Right Wing Bitches

23 06 2008

I stumbled across some right wing douche bag wringing his hands about how it could be that committed Christians would possibly support a liberal Democrat.  The short answer is “George Bush”, but that really wouldn’t have persuaded this 26 percenter.  He then went on to list the usual talking (or whining) points about gays, abortion, welfare, needle programs, secularization of society, etc.  It really was uninspiring prattle but I couldn’t help but take a swing at such a slow hanging curve ball.  I replied:

Many committed Christians can support a liberal democrat because it’s liberals and not the right who are compassionate to the homeless, the elderly, the infirm and the poor through programs like welfare (which you pan later in your comment).

It’s because the right is dogmatic, intolerant, and very often hypocritical when it comes to issues of sex but liberals instead endorse and promote treating people with respect and dignity by recognizing that sexual preference is not a choice but a biological disposition.

It’s also because liberals do not promote failed programs like abstinence only but instead want to provide real sexual education that works so that the legally protected doctor/patient decision about abortion is as rare as possible.

As for needles, we would all prefer that people did not abuse drugs but pretending it isn’t a difficult and persistent problem won’t fix it.  Drug abusers will continue to abuse drugs with or without clean needles, so if inexpensive programs that provide clean needles will lower the instances of extremely expensive diseases and will also bring addicts in contact with information about help to get off of drugs then I believe that is money well spent.

As for purging faith and religion from public life, you’re mistaken.  Liberals only wish to make this country safe for all religious perspectives.  Christians may be the majority today but even if they were not liberals would adamantly protect your right to practice it while making sure no other religion is given preferential treatment by the government…just like the founding fathers intended it.

Republicans and the right like to complain about taxes but are often the first to ironically spout jingoistic comments like “Freedom isn’t FREE!!!”  Indeed, it is not, but apparently only some of us are willing to step up and make sacrifices for the greater good.  Just like Jesus would .

Who knows, maybe one or two of those points will make sense to him. I doubt it, but just maybe.

FISA: Protecting Everyone Except The American People

23 06 2008

This is from Olbermann from the first time the FISA bills were being amended…but you wouldn’t be able to tell given that the arguments are all the same today.

Please call your Senators today while your calls are still untapped and you can still make a difference.

Call Your Senators, Stop The FISA Amendment!

23 06 2008

The fourth amendment shredding bill that just flew through the House is going to be voted now in the Senate and will be voted on this week.  PLEASE STOP THIS BILL. Call your Senators right now (using this handy phone list) and let them know that you are vocal, you vote, and you’re against this bill.

Then call Senator Obama ((202) 224-2854) because if he would change his mind his leadership could make this happen.
