women/homesexuals=BAD rapists/kidnappers=GOOD

“The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee recently released data showing the Army has doubled the number of waivers it grants to recruits convicted of violent felonies including manslaughter, rape and kidnapping. In an attempt to meet personnel goals Pentagon leaders have recently relaxed enlistment standards regarding age, physical fitness, education and criminal records. The discharge of lesbian and gay Americans, however, continues.”

this is from an article found at the servicemembers legal defense network about how women are affected by the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law more than men. also about how homosexuals continue to be kicked out, while people who are not fit to be in the military are let in.

it really makes no sense at all to me. any rational human being should be able to look at this and realize that our leaders are illogical and should not be given the power they have. i REALLY don’t understand how people can support this sort of behavior. how can somebody honestly prefer to be represented by killers and rapists rather than women or homosexuals? how can you look at this and say that the military is doing a good job and should be respected and supported? throw in the countless cases of abuse, murder, and torture, the general disregard for human life, both foreign and domestic, and the way the government “takes care” of its veterans and it all seems very obvious that things need to be scrapped and rebuilt from the ground up.

marriage, ellen degeneres, and john mccain

i forgot how much i LOVE ellen degeneres, and how much i DON’T love john mccain. how can you say to someone’s face that they don’t have the same rights as you? i’ve been studying the human rights act in the uk, and the diagnostic statistical manual of mental disorders, which until recently listed homosexuality as a mental disorder…it’s just mind-blowing to me why anyone cares about marriage to begin with, and why anyone cares about someone else’s marriage and whether it is legal or not.

also, please don’t vote for john mccain. anyone that doesn’t believe people are equal is one step away from supporting slavery and oppression.

in this video, ellen degeneres blatantly speaks, as john mccain rightly says, in a very eloquent fashion about how marriage should be a right for everyone. it is infuriating, though, that you can see john mccain just glossing over while she’s speaking.
