A self-serving billionaire engaging in historically massive personal corruption #NotMyPresident
Sounds good to me!
I never understood why this issue was so important... I feel like people committed their lives politically just on this issue, which to me is ridiculous on both sides...
Who the hell cares? I don't care if you marry your dog...Marry your genitalia... or car...It means nothing to me
Now... There are people dying, starving, and the country is tanking economically with large separations in economic and political opinion on foreign relations
And from what I understand, the decision was written in a way to try and be very limited as it relates to potentially other non-traditional types of marriage. But, that will be a case for another day.
if you want to flip out about yesterday's decision, i'd almost be sympathetic. i heard that one, and i was a little surprised. today's decision is solid as ****, though. equal protection under the law is equal protection under the law. this is no different than Loving v Virginia. sexual orientation is analogous to race. you were born straight, and they were born gay. you can't deny them a fundamental right.
William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)
THE SECOND COMING
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
It doesn't matter if you're talking about Dred Scott, Roe, or this newest abomination.
Maintaining the integrity of the Constitution is their job. When they not only fail to do that, but they directly violate the Constitution themselves and make up new "rights" willy nilly and force them against the states appropriate of nothing, that is tyranny.
When the foxes rule the henhouse, it's game over.
