How damn senile does a senator have to be for the American people to finally fire his ass? I ask myself all the time. I swear, half the time when I’m watching CSPAN, the only thing I can hear are colostomy bags filling and arteries hardening. Right now, the stupid old fogies running our government are up to their old tricks: not getting a fucking thing done. Come; join me on another trip down the hypocrite highway where our only stop will be where the most bass-ackwards piece of shit legislation to grace our system of law resides.
For those of you living in a progressive, secular nation, that is America’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law. It essentially bans gays and lesbians from serving in the military and allows dismissal purely on the grounds of sexual orientation. (Click the last sentence to Wikipedia that bitch and get back to me.) Basically it says that when you’re in a foxhole, somebody could be so queer that they prevent you from shooting the bad guy. I don’t know how that works. I’m sure Old Man McCain has some bullshit explanation for me.
This senile old bastard is John McCain. He’s a Vietnam veteran, and apparently knows first-hand how gays can disrupt the entire unit. Or possibly not. He probably can’t remember; he’s over 72 years old and the Napalm apparently fried his brain ages ago. He just proved how old and tired he actually is by pulling this little stunt. The DADT law is up for repeal right now. He said that the issue needed more debate (Not sure why. Maybe because all those damn, dirty queers keep stealing all the bullets and should always be suspect on the war front.) However, when it came time to debate the issue, the miserable old fuck decided to filibuster (talk that shit to death). Now, I don’t know about you, but if you want debate, don’t vote down your chance to debate you stupid hypocritical asshole. I think somebody needs his B vitamins, some applesauce, an afternoon nap, a place in the retirement home and a fat dose of SHUT THE FUCK UP.
Wait. I’m wrong. He doesn’t need to shut the fuck up. He just needs to actually get his old ass out to that senate floor and start talking. The Democrats need to call his bluff. Look, don’t just threaten to talk the bill to death, I want to see you get out there and start talking for 4 days straight until it’s dead, or you’re dead, or possibly both.
I guess my problem is; I don’t even see the need to debate this. You see, I’m looking at a completely different picture here, and it’s one that Pepaw McCain can’t see. Maybe he needs to re-evaluate his position, or perhaps the old bitch just needs bifocals. Then, maybe, just maybe, he’d see this:
Here’s what it says (minds, prepare to be blown):
Article 14, U.S. Constitution:
Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Well fuck me; I guess that kind of kills those anti-gay laws like Proposition Hate and DADT. Damn that equal protection, stopping a bunch of prejudicial rectal warts from stripping others of their rights. There’s got to be some way around it. After all, the Constitution doesn’t specifically mention homosexuality, and therefore a handful of bigots and religious lunatics should have every right to strip the people they don’t approve of of their rights.
Article 9, U.S. Constitution
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
Fuck. Well, the founding fathers never wanted this shit. They were all saints, good holy folk and blah, blah, blah, right?
“It has been objected also against a Bill of Rights, that, by enumerating particular exceptions to the grant of power, it would disparage those rights which were not placed in that enumeration; and it might follow by implication, that those rights which were not singled out, were intended to be assigned into the hands of the General Government, and were consequently insecure. This is one of the most plausible arguments I have ever heard against the admission of a bill of rights into this system; but, I conceive, that it may be guarded against. I have attempted it, as gentlemen may see by turning to the last clause of the fourth resolution.”
Goddamn founding fathers. Well, I guess there’s no way around this: gays, you’re in the army now. Oh, and you better get married before you leave. If you like it better put a ring on it. Just do it while the puritanical old fucks in Congress aren’t looking. Nothing’s worse than some old papaw staggering into your party wearing nothing but a threadbare bathrobe, carrying a bottle of Maalox and saggy old scrotum dragging on the ground busting up your event and killing any buzz you could get off it.
What kills me the most is the attitude of these bastards. Supposedly the men and women fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan are fighting to protect our freedoms. They’re not. Those poor people are fighting Bush’s vanity wars for territory and oil and we all know it. However, let’s go back to the myth that they’re fighting for American freedoms. Who wants to fight for supposed freedoms that they aren’t even entitled to? To force somebody to fight for rights he or she can’t have all because some narrow-minded assholes just don’t want it is the most vile hypocrisy of all. Don’t take my word for it; I’m just another anonymous blogger. Take this gal’s word for it. I can’t be the only one screaming for justice over answering services.
