Tort reform at top of GOP's 2005 'common sense agenda'

Senate Republicans announced Monday they will push a "common sense agenda" in the 2005 General Assembly that includes significant tort reform legislation.

GOP leaders also said they were pre-filing bills on education, jury strikes and road and infrastructure funding, but none on the so-called moral issues that Democratic critics predict will dominate the first session in which the GOP will control both the Senate and House.Collapse )

Yes indeed, you cannot employ base level common sense by going after the initial flawed reasoning that won your seats in the first place, the very bullhorn issues that you touted all along as a means of twisting the arms of the Evangelical moralists which we ALL know have never given thought to anything other than indiscriminately casting the proverbial first stone. Fucking Republicans, I swear to Dog.

Marriage is amendment's only subject

A myth abounds that judges rule just on the law. It's not so. The challenge to the constitutional amendment on gay marriage, approved by 76.2 percent of the more than 3.2 million Georgians, is a perfect example.

The amendment is in two paragraphs. The first declares: "This state shall recognize as marriage only the union of man and woman. Marriages between persons of the same sex are prohibited in this state."Collapse )


You just don't know how happy I'm going to be when this thing is declared null and void, if for no other reason than the fact that it is written so poorly that it borders on the absurd. It proves that rational, thinking people in this state and indeed the nation by and large are really, REALLY fucking stupid. Consider the south's historical problem with discrimination, and it's propensity to make efforts to enshrine discrimination into state laws and constitutions. Consider that this would be the first time in the history of the State of Georgia that an act of discrimination against a sect of society would be used to amend the goddamned constitution. Did you get this far without your eyes filling up with blood? Good - then I challenge you to speak to as many people as possible about just how wrong this entire issue is, and how shameful it is that it has gotten this far.

And since I'm on this roll, if you voted Republican but against Amendment One, I'm sorry to inform you that you DID in fact cast a vote to ban same sex marriage. Within days of the election, President Shrub made it clear that he would seek to ban same sex marriage at the Federal level, which in case you didn't realize, trumps the state. If that's a surprise to anyone, please kill yourself. Did I mention that Vice President Hypocrite has gone on record as being in favor of leaving it to the states to decide? He, with his big ol' dyke daughter who makes about as much sense as fucking for chastity?

Also, someone alert the media who for whatever reason have failed to realize that no one who actually reads the Jeannette Walls' "The Scoop" column gives a fuck if Britney Spears can write a poem. We don't even care if she gets sucked up into Goatse's asscave, for that matter.

I think it's going to be one of them there insomnia nights...
