I know this isn't suppose to be about only the historical value, but come on here folks! Don't you realize that in a few short hours (oh, and 77 days) that we will have an historical american political first? Either our first black president or our first female vice president!?!?
I find myself watching the polls and election results although there aren't any yet. Am I the only one wholeheartedly disgusted with the proposition to ban gay marriage? Why is it okay in this day and age to discriminate against anyone for any reason? That's like saying, "Oh, by the way, since you're a woman, you no longer have any rights. We changed our minds. Sorry." Only they aren't even apologizing for this bit of extreme stupidity. What are they so afraid of? "Oh, if gay marriage is allowed, they are going to teach our children that it's okay." Folks, chances are that if you are so all fired paranoid about allowing gay marriage and you truly believe that it will somehow adversly effect you if two random people that you have never met are allowed the same rights and freedoms that enjoy on a daily basis then your kids are probably so freaking brainwashed anyway that law or no law, teaching or not teaching, it really won't make a difference. Yes, I realize that that was a very long sentence. But seriously, you may as well erect a cross on your neighbors lawn and set it on fire, because all you're doing is commiting a hate crime anyway. Not the same? EXACTLY the same.
Okay, I'll rant all night. Polls are closing, time to go obsessively watch the numbers.
Here, happy thought. puppies and bunnies. see they're cute!
