Obama On Fair Trade

Posted in Humor, Politics on May 4th, 2012

As as know President Obama is heavily concerned with interstate commerce and a big proponent of “fairness.” Hence, he’s more likely to undertake domestic trading projects than most of his predecessors in the White House.

President Obama was exiting Marine One the other day on the South Lawn. He had an animal under held each arm. As he approached the side door of the White House a young Marine on security detail holding the door for him said “Nice pigs, Mr. President”.

The President stopped in his tracks and responded to him “Marine, these aren’t pigs, they’re Arkansas Razorbacks! I got one for the First Lady and one for the Secretary of State”.

The Marine responded “Nice trade, sir.”

I’d imagine that Obama is also looking to shop Biden…But that’s a pig of a different color. ;-)

Hunting Down Queers

Posted in Politics, Society on May 1st, 2009

What would happen if someone gathered together a list of queers and those who support faggotry in America and posted their personal information on the internet? Would various criminal charges – including federal “Hate Crimes” charges, and lawsuits be filed? Would there be huge amounts of outcry from coast to coast? Would whoever did so be accused of hunting down queers? You damn well better believe it.

If someone gathered together the names, addresses and signatures of tens of thousands of queers and those who support the legislated acceptance of their chosen lifestyle and made such information public the storm of litigation and outrage such an act would raise would be overwhelming. But apparently it’s perfectly OK for faggots to do that very thing to Americans who do not vote in favor of pro-queer legislation or who initiate legislation that queers don’t like.

A group of queers calling themselves KnowThyNeighbor.org didn’t like the fact that Americans in Arkansas initiated and got approved a 2008 ballot resolution – the Unmarried Couple Adoption Ban (Act 1) – that made it illegal for any individuals – irrespective of sexual preferences – cohabiting outside of a valid marriage to adopt or provide foster care to minors.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF ARKANSAS:

Section 1: Adoption and foster care of minors.

(a) A minor may not be adopted or placed in a foster home if the individual seeking to adopt or to serve as a foster parent is cohabiting with a sexual partner outside of a marriage which is valid under the constitution and laws of this state.

(b) The prohibition of this section applies equally to cohabiting opposite-sex and same-sex individuals.

Section 2: Guardianship of minors.
This act will not affect the guardianship of minors.

Section 3: Definition.
As used in this act, “minor” means an individual under the age of eighteen (18) years.

Section 4: Public policy.
The public policy of the state is to favor marriage, as defined by the constitution and laws of this state, over unmarried cohabitation with regard to adoption and foster care.

Section 5: Finding and declaration.
The people of Arkansas find and declare that it is in the best interest of children in need of adoption or foster care to be reared in homes in which adoptive or foster parents are not cohabiting outside of marriage.

Section 6: Regulations:
The Director of the Department of Human Services, or the successor agency or agencies responsible for adoption and foster care, shall promulgate regulations consistent with this act.

Section 7: Prospective application and effective date.
This act applies prospectively beginning on January 1, 2009.

So the very angry faggots at KnowThyNeighbor got copies of the original petition that initiated the Arkansas ballot initiative and entered all the information – including reasonable quality scanned images of the Americans’ signatures – of the approximately 83,000 Americans who signed it into a searchable database and posted it on their site.

The only two purposes for such an act are to intimidate Americans into never speaking out against anything that the queers want to do, and to facilitate reprisals against the persons and property of the Americans who exercised their constitutional right to initiate legislation. As we have seen in post Prop 8 California, such reprisals are likely to happen and are likely to include instances of violence against both people and their property.

Suddenly the hype about the “gay agenda” and what queers will do to further it doesn’t seem quite so far-fetched anymore, does it? Maybe the AFA wasn’t as wrong as many of us wanted to believe.

Would anyone care to hazard a guess about what would happen to anyone who made a similar database of the names, addresses, and signatures of the queers and their supporters who signed any of the petitions that started the various Gay Marriage laws? But then hunting down queers is wrong, whereas doing the same to heterosexuals is “activism.”
