Vote NO on TWO

Last night I listened as two young men, explained the onerous, and loathsome political calculus of the proponents of Amendment Two. I understood, when they explained that the important story to tell about NO ON TWO was that SENIORS would find that their last ditch economic survival strategy, where in many SENIORS cannot afford to marry, because they would then fall completely through the meager safety net that prevents them from smashing into the cold darwinian concrete. Losing tiny but helpful benefits due them... from survival benefits or widowhood.

VOTE NO ON TWO

They also explained that the largest group that would be affected unless FLORIDIANS VOTE NO ON TWO, would be hetero-couples who for a variety of reasons, have chosen to eschew not only a religious service, but also the sacred civic vows that warm the heart of many a paper pushing bureaucrat.
Hetero-Sexuals who live beyond the holy vows of a civil marriage. These fine yet sacrilegious folk would be faced with the economic and civic equivalent of an I.E.D. (Incivil Equality Disaster) when they tried to get insurance coverage for children born beyond the sacred pale of the bureaucrats stamp.

VOTE NO ON TWO

Or should they find themselves in need of say an emergency room, and then against all odds, survive long enough to inherit a bed, they might want to have a visit from their partner, or their beloved children. BUT NO, the MORALLY CRIPPLED among us, (THESE PROPONENTS of Amendment TWO) have a simple answer to a visit from a loved one, or health care by their company insurance. They JUST SAY NO!

VOTE NO ON TWO

They would turn to this patient, with their own hideous mocking rendition of high MORAL UMBRAGE and say, NO YOU cannot have the succor of your beloved yet unsanctioned family. Or worse, turn to the sick child and say, this child, like so many in FLORIDA, cannot enjoy even the modest protection of an insurance policy. All because, the TALIBAN have followed us home from the sacred soils of the middle east?

VOTE NO ON TWO!

NO because Americas' home grown, religious police, would, under the guise of a PUBLIC MORALITY CHECK damage our frayed public safety net further, to protect the American Family.

VOTE NO ON TWO.

These young men turned to the audience and asked rhetorically, I'm sure, what's next?
I said, helpfully, public stonings? the Stocks? Flogging? [Titters from the audience.] (Can he say that? Ed.)

They smiled (VOTE NO ON TWO) They said the next wedge issue these moral dwarves propose is to revamp the (presumedly promiscuous) NO FAULT DIVORCE. Because, after all, wheres the fun in that. After all if we can stir up a little more outrage among the intellectually stunted under-educated we might be able to place more SCALIAs and ALITOs and Thomases on Courts across the land. Watch your rights erode then!

VOTE NO ON TWO.

Memo to "W" the Taliban never did follow us home from their beloved and desolate hill-country. Very few donkeys can swim trans oceanically. The Taliban have been with us, since before Cotton Mather, and his vigilante buddies, burned bush-healers, women wise in herbs and folk medicine. Since before the Scopes Trial, (VOTE NO ON TWO) watch out Florida, there may be "Scopes" RERUNS in your future.

VOTE NO ON TWO!

They explained we don't want to raise the Human Rights issue of Gay Marriage... it's off the table... we have to fight this battle as a defense of seniors, and the poor unbeknighted heteros who dare to live exiled from the munificent blessings of the clerks stamp.

VOTE NO ON TWO.

I can only sigh and say, wasn't this whole revolution thing, about the Pursuit of Happiness? Or is that off the table too?
