Your misconception comes in believing that what is known as "The Civil Rights Movement" in America was a regionalized issue owned by America alone. It was a global movement. Peasants in Latin America demanded higher wages and a stop to the discrimination against them. Africans of all races started liberating their countries from European colonialism because of the lack of rights they had.
No. You're just wrong on this.

No one is complaining about the executive order and if you werent so stuck on your own need to be right you would see that. This executive order is of itself biased. It doesnt address 'all' poor picked on critters...it only addresses homosexuals. Strike one. It doesnt have much by way of value or import...strike two. And finally...using for example the article posted that illustrated the plight of gay partners...it only addresses conscious and cognizant adult patients in their visitation and consultation rights. It does nothing for people in comas or that are mentally incapacitated...that still requires a legal will...an option that already EXISTS. Strike three.
An adult patient can already do all these things. An unconscious or comatose patient still cant.
Huuuu freqin zah! No...seriously...good for you! The president signed an executive order that says you can do what you are already doing...you SHOULD be thrilled. He gets to pretend he cares and he actually has done something...you get to pretend it is a step towards being 'normal'...life is AWESOME!!!
Like I told the good captain...I dont CARE about this executive order, nor do I give two shakes of a tinkers damn about people that happen to be gay. I point out the GLARINGLY OBVIOUS>..that you and yurn just got punked by the pres and you are throwing a party about it...and you cant STAND that.
Hey...use the 'homophobe' word next...thats the next step in the playbook...right? Cept...uh oh...it doesnt work with me.
