Politik Rant

It appears taht I was right not to trust the government.

On vote.com (republican stronghold of the internet, although not as in vouge as it once was), there’s currently a vote for ‘should the patriot act be used to prosecute criminals?’. In other words, ‘should we in fact seriously abridge your civil liberties, start holding clandestine searches without warrents, and turn this into even more of a police state.’

54% of those voting said, ‘Yes! I loved the Nazis! The KGB always sounded like so much FUN! Bring us our very own police state’.

Are these people NUTS? Well, they’re republicans, which may be synonymous..

No, seriously. I can understand republicans most of the time. I don’t agree with them, but I can understand how they can be what they are. Most of them, I suspect, just never really grew up enough to empathize with other people.

But to vote in your very own police state? Would these people vote for their own hanging, too?

And then there’s the marrige protection act.

Because we all know people are attacking marrage. No, really, seriously, Bush has come about as close as I’ve ever seen to openly criticizing gays and lesbians. I’m wondering if they are going to be the jews to his Hitler act. [If you think I don’t like Bush, you’re wrong. It’s not so much that I don’t like him as I see him as a evil, homicidal maniac. Perhaps because I watched him lie to the world in order to start a war – TWICE IN A ROW. (Now what are the odds that Bin Laden, who needs dialasys, is living somewhere with no operable power grid? I’d say zero, wouldn’t you? But we’ll never bomb the Saudis, because we need their oil..)]

I mean, the latest post on the whitehouse site, which I’m sure you’ve all seen, had me so angry i couldn’t see straight. THIS is the best we can do? This unelected slimeball feels so threatened by the idea of gay marrage that he has to make a national holiday out of males and females getting married? (Because we all know how having male-male or female-female marrages would threaten the institution of marriage..)

Oh, never mind. I’ll write more later. I just don’t have the energy for it..

    Oh, there was an article in the paper I meant to show you.. about just that, the patriot act getting used for other things (which it is) – I think it was a nationally syndicated article, which might have provoked that vote. ran on the front page of the p-i. Remind me to dig it up for you.

    ya know.. if the soundtrack of a world overtaken by big brother is anything like 1984… at least the music will be cool 😉
