I feel I can speak for Texans when I say, we really don't give a flying blank what anyone does....
You have GOT to know that you cannot speak for Texans. Right here on this board, you've got Zed and Aflac. 2 Texans that couldn't be more diametrically opposed on every single possible issue out there. And to a lesser extreme, you've got Goat and myself... 2 others on very different sides of issues.
I've been in Texas for most of my 41 years, and no, MANY MANY MANY *do* give a flying blank what everyone else does (just like everywhere else the human population decides to settle down).
I believe the biggest mistake by the SCOTUS this past week was, not being wise enough to even out some of their decisions, as opposed to giving O everything he wanted...
Why is gay marriage something "O" wanted? Hell, he just "evolved" on it like a frickin year ago. This certainly was NOT his fight. And to give him any credit/blame for it is ridiculous. I don't know any gay people who have credited Obama for this.
As for your last part there about trying to even-out decisions... wtf does that mean? If a referee makes a bad call in a game, the last F'ing thing I want that idiot to do is make a bad call on the other team to "even it out". SCOTUS doesn't do that. Nor should they. If they did, why don't we just advance to coin-flipping?
Heck, you know I'm right anyway about the steady build up of unease that's been taking place in the country.
Nope. There is no steady build up of unease. There has been CONSTANT unease since this country was founded. There are many examples of this throughout history. The founding fathers bickered amongst themselves constantly. Many citizens here actually still wanted to be under the King's rule. The North was not 100% all for equality and freeing slaves. The same Bible passages were used to both call for an end to slavery as well as defend it.
I understand what you're saying, and the point you're trying to make. I don't agree with it. George Wallace stood in front of the schoolhouse, blocking entry. He had enough of that government "forcing" him to do things too. And then he fucking moved out of the fucking way because he HAD to.
So will these idiots.
