"They Won't Know What Hit Them." That's the title of a scary piece at The Atlantic Monthly. Summary: Led by wealthy homosexual Tim Gill, some very rich homosexuals and homosexual sympathizers have come up with a new plan to push the homosexual political agenda and it's proving highly effective. The thrust: Get behind candidates in small races (e.g., state house of representatives) and tip political power in pro-gay directions throughout the states. Small amounts of money can make big differences in these little races. Especially targeted: emerging anti-gay politicians. The hope is to knock them out of the political arena before they get strong.
Interesting excerpt, in case you thought it might be safe to vote Democrat again:
"[T]he new Democratic Congress may soon consider a long-desired national employment nondiscrimination bill [that prohibits discrimination against homosexuals in the work place]."
If you don't think that type of legislation would be a real legal mess, you've never dealt with the law. Moreover, if sexuality is a "continuum," as cutting-edge perverts want us to believe, who is gay and who isn't? Yet further: I don't want to be told that I have to hang out with a gay guy in my office. Finally: This isn't a continuation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. This is about civil rights about as much as Pee Wee Herman's conduct in the theater was about freedom of expression.
Another good excerpt (emphasis added):
As I arrived in Denver a week before the election, Haggard’s life became a national sensation. He first denied, but later resigned because of, a report that for years he had paid for sex with a gay prostitute through whom he had also bought crystal meth. The story exploded across the state, yielding full-banner headlines for four days running in The Denver Post and wall-to-wall footage of Haggard’s awkward semi-denial to a local TV news crew.
While the pundits predicted that the scandal would demoralize conservative voters and benefit the state’s liberals, [Tim] Gill’s organization held no such illusions. Its polling showed that the vote on domestic partnerships had been running near even, but now this development seemed certain to tip things against them. Trying to explain why, [political advisor to Gill, Ted] Trimpa characterized it best by grimly invoking “the gay ick”—his rueful term for the tendency of well-meaning and fair-minded straight voters to become turned off when gay issues focus explicitly on sex.
Great term: "Gay ick." I think I'll start using it. Homosexuals don't want us to think about what they're doing in that closet. Why? Because it's freakin' twisted, that's why. It hurts, it's degrading, and it strikes the average guy as about as enjoyable as getting one's genitals slammed in a car door. Sex is a big part of marriage. It's the primary thing that marriage regulates, civilizes, and channels to the communal good. The mere fact that homosexuals don't want us to think about what they're doing in their "marriages" speaks volumes.
Change of subject: Debt sucks, but Americans can't stop. A new film, Maxed Out, will document it. Excerpt:
Sky-high interest rates on credit cards can make a mountain of debt seem insurmountable. Eventually for some, it is.
An unfortunate minority depicted in the new movie "Maxed Out" finds the burden too great to bare: suicide seems like the only way out.
America's predilection for debt is well documented. U.S. consumers owe over $2.4 trillion, nearly one fifth the size of the total economy
Unfortunately, it looks like the film paints the banks as the bad guys instead of the irresponsible consumers, which is like blaming the bartender when a patron gets drunk ("I didn't over-consume. I was over-served").
Has anyone else experienced an increase in spam email? For awhile, it seemed to subside, but I'm getting blitzed at all my email boxes, and my Yahoo email address isn't blocking it out as well as it used to.
PETA might be messing with the wrong folks this time: "Trappist monks who operate a chicken farm in South Carolina are disputing accusations from a national animal-welfare group that their birds have been mistreated." Trappist Merton was a big fan of Rachel Carson. Have his brethren strayed that far from his earth-caring thinking? I doubt it. I suspect it's just another PETA shrill attack.
Heck, and all this time they thought it was merely the great PR from Brokeback Mountain: Wyoming's lax laws regarding sex offenders might be attracting them.
Wyoming, with its wide-open spaces and crisp, clear vistas, is starting to worry it has made itself too attractive in one respect: Convicted sex offenders from out of state are moving in, apparently because the laws are less restrictive.
"We don't want to become the playground for sex offenders," Attorney General Pat Crank said. "But there must be something that sex offenders are seeing. Otherwise they wouldn't be moving here in the kind of numbers that we seem to be seeing."
Wyoming is home to about 1,200 known sex offenders. That is not a large number for such a sparsely populated state. But law enforcement officials and legislators are worried because 56 percent of those offenders moved to Wyoming after being convicted somewhere else.
