Apology NOT accepted!
According to Huffington Post, Rick Perry apologized for calling his fellow GOP Candidates heartless. <sigh> Isn’t that sad? I mean really, really sad. He said something he means or, should I say, meant and he’s not standing behind his comment. He was right – his fellow GOP Candidates are heartless. A few of them are hypocrites (can you say Michele Bachmann, boys and girls?).
I disagree with Rick Perry on a lot of subjects, but educating the children of illegal aliens is the right thing to do. He has a point when he said, “If you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they’ve been brought there by no fault of their own, I don’t think you have a heart.”
And, now he says “I was probably a bit over-passionate by using that word, and it was inappropriate.”
Isn’t that what we want in a Presidential Candidate? A guy who feels strongly? Okay, truth is, I wasn’t going to vote for Rick Perry if he was the last man on earth, but come on. Stand up for what you believe in. Tell those sorry ass competitors of yours to go screw themselves.
Quit freaking apologizing! I hate that!
I saw a comment on Huffington Post where the commenter stated that she didn’t like the gay agenda. Her comment was on the article of how the Republican Candidates for President stood silently (probably booing inside), while the audience booed a gay soldier.
I posted the following to her, but apparently, it wasn’t approved. I decided to post it here. I want to set the record straight, so to speak, on the gay agenda. Pay attention and feel free to pass this along to your friends and family.
What part of the “gay agenda” don’t you like? I’m gay and I don’t have any agenda beyond being able to have the right to live my life like anyone else. My wife should be able to draw on my Social Security, just like a straight woman can draw on her husband’s. My wife should be able to inherit our house without tax repercussions, just like a straight woman. We should be able to file our federal taxes together, visit each other in the hospital (without jumping through hoops) and make the necessary health and financial decisions like any other married couple.
If wanting to have the same rights as everyone else means I have an agenda, okay, I guess I have one.
What part of MY agenda don’t you like? What part of I pay taxes too means that I don’t get to live like any other taxpaying, God fearing American?
It’s time we stop hiding behind crap lines like “gay agenda” and start realizing that this is America, where we are all considered equal.
Regarding the cowardly GOP Candidates for President, I wrote my opinion here. They are sad excuses for American citizens – every last one of them.
