A Matter of Priorities

A rouge nation with budding nuclear weapons capabilities is being run by a cult obsessed with End Times eschatology, and threatens ten of millions of lives in southwest Asia. Sectarian violence continues in Iraq. We're importing poverty in record amounts through a southern border that leaks like a sieve, and Patrick Kennedy is out of rehab and back on the road.

Mr. President, if you really think I care about gay marriage right now, you're out of your ever-lovin' mind.

I agree. Who could care about the marriage issue with all that is necessary to fix. My own list would include the death tax, reducing the size of the government and its spending, eliminatig the TSA (take the fight to the Muslims, not the little old ladies) and changing homeland security so it is not a superficial organization (actually eliminating it would be good too). Eliminate welfare. Make health care affordable (even as a physician it is not for me). Drastically reduce the average citizens exposure to the government and regulations.

Add Congress to the list of those who have their priorities all out of whack. Of course, they're thinking about what this will do for them politically in November, and not what they're doing for us over the long term.

Evangelicals make up a larger percentage of the base and is peeling off more and more Dems so I can see where this is actually smart politics. Who knew politics would happen during an election year?

I'm sick to death of "politics as usual". You have voiced my utter frustration in four sentences. Thank you.

Meanwhile, did anybody notice the Dow shed 200 points, the housing bubble looks to be deflating, the dollar is losing value, and the price of oil is back in the $70 range. I'm not saying one thing or the other about gay marriage, but it sure doesn't win any fiscal conservatives' votes.

Woah. That post knocked me off guard. I honestly didn't expect that from this blog. You just recieved like +25 respect points in my book for cutting through the partisan spin and getting to the real issues.

Did you mean rouge nation, or a rogue nation? There's a pretty big difference :)

"Did you mean rouge nation, or a rogue nation? There's a pretty big difference :)"

Not on this side of the blogosphere. I actually thought it was quite witty, until I realised it was probably a typo :-(

Ha, ha, ha! I agree that the timing is terrible. I remember the first petition that I signed for this amendment was in 2003. I know that wasn't the first time the amendment was talked about. I know Bush believes in the amendment, but he should have done something about it during his first term, not in an election year. Right now it seems that he is taking attention off of the immigration issue.

Yes, I am also FAR more concerned about the Iranian Hitler.
