I have to wonder if this would be occuring if she were First Lady. Some things happen for a reason.
Prop 8 is Dobson's 'Big Play.' It is politics. This legislative action has been defended by those affiliated with Focus on the Family. It is the act of a PAC. Dobson has no right to be treated a religious non-profit.
That is only to begin with. The article below is from a student paper. Students in a university education that are complaining about tuition hikes need to send a big Thank You Note to Wall Street. For all those business majors...think about it. I don't believe I have heard of any business majors demanding a bail out universities.
Proposition 8 Deserves Nothing But Opposition (click title to entry - thank you)
February 18, 2010
Proposition 8 was a ballot proposition and constitutional amendment passed during the November 2008 California state elections. The measure added a new provision to the California Constitution which reads, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”...
This sorts of come back to what's his name???....Glen Beck.He is 'pretending' there are spirits at work converting Republicans to Satan. He targeted Megan McCain as a person possessed. He is using conspiracy theories to motivate viewers. The guy is pathetic.
Yesterday, he and his fellow henchman knew they were caught with the goods and downplayed the hate and anger. He was trying to obtain a 'centrist' appeal. He even invoked the names Olberman and Huffington in his pandering for forgiveness for being a complete jackass and putting innocent people in the line of fire of maniacs with guns.
The problem I have with Beck and those like him, is that the journalists from Rwanda are in prison AND alive. Pawns to violence get to live.
Not only that, but, these bozos aren't reliable. They will play 'duck and cover' until they are out of the spotlight and then they start the rant all over again.
If they were legitimate journalists they would be working some place other than Murdoch and Rush Radio. Tabloid, but, worse. This is hate with the power of mass media. I don't recall the KKK ever having this level of media power. Ever. Even with David Duke in the legislature there wasn't this kind of consistent 'messaging' of hate to the populous of people of the USA.
There is a real issue here. Dobson wants to over throw the rights of citizens of the USA by assaulting the Constitution and the The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. He wants to destroy the wall between church and state and he is throwing very big money at the possibility.
Media services like Murdoch's and Rush Limbaugh make incredible incomes by facilitating the hate. I'll give an example.
One of the Murdoch Talk Radio commentators, don't recall his name, was stating 'statistics' the other day.
He stated, "82% of the people of the USA believe in God."
My reaction is so what.
That wasn't his.
He went on to say,"70 percent of the people of the USA believe in JC (Jesus Christ).
My reaction was still so what.
That wasn't his.
The USA Constitution prides itself on being a 'government of the people' which honors majority rule in elections.
When a Murdock media expert starts quoting statistics like this it is to give impetus to 'the idea' of Christians dominating the government and legislating morality.
One of the tea baggers tried to down play the potential for violence to this movement by stating, "...you mean just because I like to fire a gun means I am not a good person..."
That isn't the issue. There are 'elements' within the Tea Bagger Movement that believe violent revolution is a possiblity if they can't acquire their goals otherwise. They are more than 'lone wolves' and they are given a platform of 'suggestion' by desperate men such as Beck.
The KKK are real. The Tea Baggers are real. They are starting their desperate walk for power. This mess has a lot of potential beyond simply winning an election here or there. It has the potential to change the 'content' of the benevolence of the laws of the USA. If they had their way they would justify hate of anyone outside the Dobson Morality by legislating morality that would call abortion murder and assign the death sentence. That would hold true, in time, for gays and we would see the return of sodomy laws. None of this is a joke or should be taken lightly.
In 2006 and 2008 power brokers for Wall Street lost very big in elections. They don't like it and are throwing very big money garnered from profits of companies that were saved by bailouts, etc. at the elective process of the USA.
The Republicans and Tea Baggers should be lining up behind President Obama in his naming of a bipartisan 'National Debt Task Force.' But. They aren't and they aren't because it isn't PROFITABLE for them to do so. The power brokers for the Republicans are in revolt and having a hissy fit. Everyone else in line with this mess is having a wonderful time lining their pockets along the way.
As Mrs. Cheney would say, "Paint your wagon."
The USA has issues. Very big issues. Very, very big issues.
