I browed thru some political articles I had ignored the past week & came across a few gems. I consider myself a pretty skeptical person, but even I was shocked at the level of stupidity in the news this week.
For one, the Supreme Court will hand down a decision this week regarding the Texas sodomy law. You know, the one that bans gay sex between consenting adults. Despite its blatant violation of the Constitution, we can be assured that this vote will be closer than it ought to.
No matter the outcome, stupidity will reign.
If the law is upheld in the Supreme Court, we will get to see the ridiculous reasoning behind the movement by wingnut Justices (which will undeniably explain why fascism & totalitarianism is good for us).
If by some freak accident, the Supreme Court isn't as stupid as I fear it is & the sodomy law is overturned, there will be a massive outcry by the religious right saying that gays are going to eat everyone's children! You just know that the AFA, FOTF, CC, & other Christian hate groups will be slandering the decision for months.
Stay tuned for that!
Then I came across another interesting tidbit. Did any of you know that Enron recieved free money from the government last year? They recieved a 3/4 of a billion dollar tax cut! And don't forget about Worldcom... they recieved a whopping 4 trillion dollar tax cut from Bushy & friends.
It's no wonder these massive corporations give so much to these campaigns. They get it all back 1000 fold!
Last but not least, did anyone read about Bush's censorship of the recent EPA report that is due out in a few weeks? As if it isn't already bad enough that Bush cut the EPA's budget in half, now that despot is X'ing out their report to make his anti-environtmental platform seem more pallatable.
