America’s Next Bill Clinton!


Bush fucks over children with veto

If you’re not angry, you should be. If you’re unaware, you should teach yourself a thing or two about the Bush Administration.

Bush, just earlier today, vetoed a bill that would dramatically expand the lives of children – a bill which would have subsidized health insurance costs for, in total 11.5 million children in America.

I am all for playing politics. However you want to market your political products, and whatever political decisions you make, is your own, no matter if you’re Republican or Democrat. There is a need to politick and shake hands and cut deals.

But draw the line at children!

I guess it’s okay to send billions of dollars overseas for Hali-Burton and Blackwater, in a war we’re not supposed to be in, but to take care of children in our own country is out of the question, huh?

Compassionate my ass.

I knew the Bush Administration was fucked up and backward, and stops at nothing for social justice – but this is over the top.

And to have the audacity to proclaim, just two days ago, to be Children’s Day? It’s unethical, it’s heartless, it lacks compassion and it’s everything I expect the Busg Administration to be.

If this doesn’t fuel your fire, very little in the world will. This is a perfect example of why I am devoting my life to fighting for social justice. We are the lucky ones in life. We’ve been given a voice. Now, we must use that voice to speak for others, who – for too long – have been denied a chance to speak.


Good news (although it’s sad that it should happen this way) for us, this might be the last straw that’ll break the camel’s back. Come 2008, the White House is ours.

Republicans: for the love of blowjobs

bathroom_stall.jpgOkay, first of all, is “blow job” one or two words? I’ve seen both versions. Can I get an English major to help me out here?

And secondly, add Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID) to the long list of Republican politicians who have gone down – and almost literally, for sexual misconducts. According to CNN reports, Craig was arrested early June (and this has now just came out, but don’t expect Craig to do the same anytime soon) at a Minneapolis Airport for attempt of lewd act in the airport’s bathroom. Story is here: http://idahostatesman.com/eyepiece/story/143517.html

Does anyone want to tell me what’s going on here? Craig is the third Republican this summer to have been arrested for sexual misconduct in public places. Worst yet, all three of these politicians (and don’t forget David Vitter of Louisinana who was named in the DC Madam case, too) were involved in SAME SEX acts.

All three have track records of speaking out, and quite passionately, against homosexuality or even sexuality in general. I guess if you spend your entire life fighting against something, it kind of “grows” on you, or you “grow” on the idea, and the next thing you know, you’re doing it.

But being a Republican politician, you don’t want to use your privilege for sex, as you are very moral, so you try to solicit sex in public bathrooms, or go down on an unsuspecting guest sleeping at your house, instead, as national Young Republican Chair Glenn Murphy (http://www.news-tribune.net/breakingnews/local_story_219210228.html) did this summer. So, we’ve got David Vitter who visited a prostitute. Bob Allen who offered a cop money to give the cop a blow job, Larry Craig who made a pass in a public bathroom at a police officer who was undercover (and apparently on the toilet) and Murphy, who decided that the best part of waking up, for a Republican, is with a cock in your mouth.

So focused on blowjobs, these Republicans are failing to do their jobs, and that’s not a good thing – at least for Republicans anyway. Is it It seems Republicans are either on vacation at their ranch or in the bathroom or some other shady places looking for a quick BJ. True?

I can’t help but laugh about it, but at the same time, it makes me wonder about people who are so “moral” and “ethical” about sexual issues, yet are so …depraved (and deprived) for sex. But, hey, political capital is political capital. As a Democrat, I’d take it however I can. How about the Republican Party start a social network just for gay Republican politicians. It’ll be as sort of a facebook type thing. If one Republican felt a need for let off a little steam (and we all do now and then), he can just log on to GOP (Gay Officials and Politicians) and “poke” another Republican he has his eyes and possibly mouth on.

If the guy feels the same way, he pokes back, and they can meet in some Congressional bathroom, specially designated for Republicans, and do all the poking their long-neglected little Republican bodies desire. That would help with a lot of the problems they’re facing. Besides, blowjobs are greatly appreciated and all, but would you want to get one from a bathroom looking like this? Ewww!

In fact, I think Ted Haggard can be their chairman.And you know what, if push comes to shove, they could always go to a private prostitute-for-hire. I here some guy named Roberto is out of a job.Thoughts?



The homosexual witch hunt.

I don’t make it a habit of defending conservative Republicans, but I will in this case. 

At this rate, I am never going to get to blog about the male-female relationship I’d been thinking about for the past few days; but I ran across something interesting on another blog here: http://pandagon.blogsome.com/2007/08/07/busted-florida-republican-state-reps-black-gay-panic-defense-on-soliciting-charge/, and thought I’d write on it instead.

 Here’s a synopsis of the story. A state representative in Florida was arrested for solitication of same-sex prostitution in a public bathroom. It turned out the person he was solicitating was an undercover police officer – and thus he was arrested.

 What makes this story is funny is that this man is a conservative Christian Republican. His defense? “Well, the guy was black and he was intimidated, he didn’t want to become a statistic. So, he was just making a pass at the guy to try to bail himself out of a bad situation.”

Liberals are having a field day with this, in pointing out the hypocrasies of the religious right and the piss-poor defense this representative gave.

 But I’d like to take a different approach. Too often, it seems we liberals only scratch the surface and do not think of the actual issues. Here’s my issue with the whole situation: why the hell are we still engaged in a witch hunt for homosexuals?

If two guys want to give each other blow jobs in a public bathroom, or anywhere else, why is it my business? This, for me, is simply a modern-day witch hunt for homosexuals. It exists simply as a means to punish homosexual men for being gay. On the surface, it might seem like a way to keep good order and discipline, but do we see this going on in women’s bathrooms or at the bar?

Why is it okay for me to be at a bar, with some girl on my lap and slobbering all over me, but it’s not okay for two men to be intimate in a bathroom stall or anywhere else? Straight sex happens in bathrooms all the time, but that’s not being cracked down on. So why target homosexuals?

 The plight of gay men is already that they can’t really behave intimately in most places in public, and now we’re cracking down on their behaviors in a semi-public place? What’s next, cracking down on two men kissing in the car, at home or at a bar? Gay men already suffer as is from being able to display their affection in public, and at home, it’s not really accepted by most.

 As a taxpayer, I’d rather police officers go out there and focus on, oh, I don’t know, gang violence, rapes, murders, and drunk drivers than standing at some corner stall busting guys for asking for and receiving blowjobs.

Besides, as a police officer, you’ve got to have screwed up pretty bad to be assigned the duty of hanging out at public bathrooms, pretending to be gay and waiting for some guy to come up to you, offering you a blowjob.

The point is that it’s unfair and it’s discriminatory. It’s profiling in a sense, and it seems we scream and yell about airport profiling and will be quick to jump on anyone right-leaning when they are caught in a situation like this. But as true liberals and Democrats, aren’t we supposed be defending their rights? So what if they’re gay and Republicans? They’re people, too. Let’s focus on the real issue here.

But, there’s a lighter issue also at work: bathroom sex can be hot, but why the hell are these men looking for each other in public bathrooms? Isn’t that what gay bars, craigslist, and Promise Keepers meetings are for? If push comes to shove, they can always go to the Catholic Church. But that’s not the point now, is it?

Also, who the hell would PAY to give a blowjob? To be sure, I don’t pay to get one either – but when it comes to the penis, I wouldn’t even want to taste my own. :X But I don’t suppose that’s the point in all of this, is it?

Thoughts?
