Abortion. Same Sex Marriages. Same Sex Marriages. Abortion. Abortion. Gay Rights. Blah, blah, blah…
Who gives a damn? I mean seriously…I think there are issues that are so much more important now than what a woman does to her own body and what 2 people who love each other want to do that won’t be a bother to anyone else. Why is it these issues are ALWAYS at the forefront of an election? Could it be because the media ALWAYS brings it up? Could it be because there are some very narrow-minded people who live in America who just can’t keep their nose out of everyone elses business? Is it because elected officials WANT to keep such topics in front of other topics that are so much more important and they realize that if they continue to put ABORTION and GAY RIGHTS at the head of the line everyone FORGETS the REAL issues and starts to whine and cry about the unborn babies and the homosexual couple who live down the street who shouldn’t be allowed to exchange rings because it’s against “insert religion title here”?
Who cares about this stuff? Seriously…why are we so feeble-minded when it comes to abortion and gay rights? It doesn’t make any sense when our economy is in the crapper (1 out of every 11 homes are in foreclosure???), we are at war for no reason, the cost of fuel is through the roof and so many other things are wrong with our country.
If I were to place a priority on abortion and gay rights, I’m thinking it’s somewhere next to “NOT IMPORTANT AT ALL” in MY life. I could care less what my neighbors do in the comfort of their own homes. If my wife and I decide we don’t want to have another baby and she gets pregnant, isn’t that OUR business what we do? I don’t give a damn what YOU think because, quite frankly (and please don’t take this the wrong way because we are friends and I would hate to lose that friendship), it’s MY life. You can go screw yourself. I’m the one who has to take care of the baby…so why don’t you stay out of it?
And as for gay marriages. If you’re not gay, and you are comfortable with who you are, and you like the opposite sex, and you aren’t living in the basement of a homosexual couple…WHAT DO YOU CARE if they get married? How does this affect your life in ANY WAY???
Get over yourselves people. YOU are not the one to say what anyone else CAN or CAN’T do. This is America (well…last time I checked anyway) and it has been based on freedom from the get-go. The freedom to love, the freedom to choose, the freedom to go wherever we want. It is also the place to go to speak your mind and say whatever you want…as long as it doesn’t interfere with the lives of others. And just for the record…abortion and gay rights is about the lives of others. So let’s move on and discuss something of substance…okay? Because if I have to listen to the candidates stammer through another 15 minute speech on THEIR thoughts on the “Rowe vs Wade” case because some dumbass brings it up again, I might have to go ballistic and write ANOTHER long-winded blog about this topic and I’m pretty much over it.
