QUILTS FOR KATRINA
9 September 2005
Well, it didn't take long for muscleman-turned-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to show his true colors.
On the heels of the jubliation following the passage of the marriage equality bill, the governor has announced he will veto it, proving that he is, after all, a girly man.
He had the chance to stand up for equal rights.
He had the opportunity to go into the history books as the first governor to acknowledge that gay people were as good as anybody and deserved the same rights as everyone else.
He had the opportunity to be a man of vision, a man of strength, a brave man who fought for the rights of all people.
But he wimped out and once again, the people who have worked so long and so hard to achieve equal rights will now have to go back to the drawing board and begin the fight all over again.
It's not fair. It's not fair. It's not fair.
Last night it was this...
Today, on an interview with the local news, it was this...
Please tell me how allowing these women to marry after 31 years would be so damn detrimental to the world.
Please tell me how allowing these women...
to marry after 34 years together in a committed relationship is going to destroy the marriage of anybody reading this journal entry.
But then this is a world which has lost its compassion.
BARBARA BUSH on the survivors at the AstroDome: "Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this, this is working very well for them." Later on, she can be heard laughing as she sees just how very well things are going for families that have lost their homes, pets, and loved ones.
CHERTOFF on conditions at the Convention Center:
(remind me--HOW much time did Chertoff spend at the Convention Center, personally?)
RUSH LIMBAUGH on the survivors:
(Yeah, I'm sure this guy can't wait to go find his new crack dealer.)
I am sick at heart.
