One and One-Half Class Citizen (tags)
The California Supreme Court decision on May 26 upholding the validity of Proposition 8, the ban on same-sex marriage voters approved in last November’s election, but also ruling that the estimated 18,000 same-sex marriages in California between June 15 and November 4, 2008 were still legal, left the same-sex couples who got married in time (including this author) in an anomalous position. We can’t really call ourselves second-class citizens because our marriages are still in force, but we can’t call ourselves first-class citizens either because other couples with love and mutual commitment equal to our own can no longer follow suit. In a sense, the voters and the courts have granted us “special rights” we neither wanted nor expected.
Pres. Bush & the Nazis (tags)
As George "War" Bush speaks at Normandy this Memorial Day, May 27, 2002, in an insulting attempt to cast himself in the image of a World War 2 hero, let us remember that the Bush family has a history of collaboration with the Nazis, and this latest American Hitler is carrying on that same tradition. His junior partners, the Zionists, also are well-known Nazi collaborators.
