Go Default, Go!

July 31st, 2011 at 10:08 am by Preston Taylor Holmes

Prior to this week, I was hoping that common sense would prevail (obviously I was living in dreamy-dreamland) in the debt debate and that something like the original Cut, Cap and Balance would be passed and we could get on the road to semi-recovery.

I should have known that even a milquetoast approach such as this would be too much for the Dims and the GOP corruptocrats to swallow. Now these egg-sucking dogs have spent the week since fighting over two plans that are complete crap and cut nothing.

Even though we are not going to actually default on our debt payments, the media and the Dims continue to use that word to scare you into swallowing anything they pass and call “cuts” which is complete B.S. Their only concern is that they are able to keep sailing the seas on the U.S.S. Gravytrain all the while stealing from you, me, our kids and our grandchildren.

Even so, the deal under discussion offers wins for both sides. Republicans and their tea party supporters would get spending cuts at least as large as the amount the debt ceiling would grow and avoid any tax increases. For President Barack Obama and Democrats, there would be no renewed battle over extending the borrowing limit until after next year’s elections.

Under the possible compromise, the debt limit would rise by an initial $1 trillion.

Their goal? To make it through the next election so the theft can continue. It doesn’t really matter, they’re not going to do enough to avoid the downgrade anyway, which may be just as bad as a default.

Tennesseans, don’t worry though. We’re good for at least six weeks if they can’t cobble together a fleece deal.

“We’ve looked at what happens if the funding totally gets cut off, if they shut down, and we’re actually in pretty good shape with how our payment flow works,” Haslam said. “But it obviously impacts the credit ratings and funding that comes from Washington.”

Emkes said “we can go beyond six weeks” in keeping the state’s fiscal house in order even with an impasse in Washington.

But Haslam said there would be “major problems” if an impasse continues for a longer term.

“If there’s not an agreement during that period of time, I think the world explodes,” Emkes said.

So you’ve got a few weeks still to stock up on those critical items – food, water, supplies and most importantly, ammo. This is also a disturbing reminder about how dependent we are on the Feds for 44% of our budget. That, in itself, is nauseating.

According to McNally, 44 percent of the state’s current year budget relies on federal funding, or $14 billion of the overall $30.8 billion. Approximately 92 percent of federal funding is contained in only seven departments, with the majority going to TennCare at 44 percent, Human Services at 19.6 percent and Education at 14 percent.

The federal money, passing through the state budget, goes to hospitals, nursing homes, schools, unemployment benefits and multiple other purposes.

Until the corruptocrats in D.C. start listening to Sens. Coburn, Demint and Paul, we’re going down the toilet for good. For a country that has allowed this to go on for decades (and even worse, would elect a street-trash community-organizing nothing like Obama), we may damn well deserve it.

UPDATE: Dammit.

Boehner, Boner

July 27th, 2011 at 12:41 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes

Poor John Boehner. His whole little establishment faux-conservative world is crumbling down around him. It’s no wonder he’s upset.

Scrambling for votes on his troubled deficit package, Speaker John Boehner bluntly told wavering GOP lawmakers Wednesday morning to “get your ass in line” behind his debt ceiling bill.

Boehner predicted Senate Democrats will fold and pass the Boehner debt bill if it can get through the House.

“This is the bill,” Boehner informed a closed-door meeting of House Republicans on Wedneday morning. “I can’t do this job unless you’re behind me.”

Here we have a weepy country-club Republican who is playing the same game they’ve been playing for years. Lying to the public, pretending to care about limited government. Creating bills that allege to have budget cuts, but in reality, suck. This is the liberal Bush-style Republican that we don’t have any use for. His little buddy Eric Cantor is no better.

“The debt limit vote sucks,” Cantor said, according to two sources cited by CNN. The Virginian then reportedly added that House Republicans needed to quit their “grumbling” and come together.

Cantor said members had three choices: risk default, pass Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s plan, or “call the Preisdent’s bluff” by passing Boehner’s plan, according to Politico.

I’ll go with choice number one, Eric. That “grumbling” you hear is the sound of principled opposition, something you and John are unfamiliar with. As long as you faux conservatives continue to play games with the future of this country and freedoms of my children, I will oppose your B.S. at every turn.

The real problem that Boehner and Cantor have is, thanks to the 2010 elections and the tea party, they are saddled now with members who actually have core principles, unlike themselves. When some people say they want limited government and individual freedom, they actually mean it. In 2010, voters did not flood the House and Senate with Republicans because we wanted the same old crap that you’ve been dishing out for years. We actually sent conservatives to clean up your mess.

When you drooling dolts put together a bill that doesn’t even cut as much spending as Harry Reid’s, you prove that you are either stupid or don’t understand 2nd-grade math. Either way, you need to go.

No wonder a majority of Americans think that Congress is corrupt. That’s because they are.

UPDATE: Hey John McCain, you’re already a complete loser – do yourself a favor and don’t remind us that you’re a prick as well.

UPDATE 2: Payback’s a bitch. Boehner and the establishment GOP are going to make conservative Jim Jordan pay for not “getting his ass in line”. These petty little bitches in GOP leadership need to be booted out on their worthless duffs. Yesterday.

Is Ben-Gay Considered A Lubricant?

July 24th, 2011 at 2:11 pm by Brian

I’m not sure how I’m supposed to feel about this:

Via the NY Post: AFP/Getty Images Phyllis Siegel (rear) and Connie Kopelov (front) celebrate after becoming the first same-sex couple to get married in New York City the day the state's gay marriage law went into effect.

The Big Apple said “I do” to a new era of gay rights this morning and celebrated New York City’s first same-sex weddings.

Chelsea residents Phyllis Siegel, 76, and Connie Kopelov, 84, got hitched at the marriage bureau on Worth Street in Lower Manhattan at 9:02 a.m., setting off wedding bells across Gotham.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who is openly gay, witnessed the ceremony that was officiated by City Clerk Michael McSweeney.

‘It was just so amazing,’’ said Siegel, who has been with her love for 23 years. ‘‘It’s the only way I can describe it. I lost my breath and a few tears.’’

 

Is “losing your breath” really that difficult to do when you’re 76 years old?

 

Personally, I could not care less about what consenting adults do in their private lives but this isn’t that.  This is forcing your state and an attempt to force other people’s states to recognize your deviant personal behavior as normal and to get businesses to pay for health insurance.

 

Not that I have a problem with deviant behavior either.  Or, in the case of homosexuality, a statistically deviant behavior that you choose to engage in since it’s not genetic.   Either way, it should not be government’s role to play referee or certify people’s religious ceremonies.  Especially a “ceremony” that just got invented in the face of several thousand years of that particular religion’s tenants.

 

Get government out of the marriage business and let everybody get a civil union and then you’re problem is solved.  At the rate divorce courts screw over men anyway, heterosexual marriage should be a thing of the past in this lifetime.

 

What man in his right mind is going to engage in this financial risky proposition?  Only gays it seems.  80 year old lesbians harboring their daddy issues like the pack of Lucky Strikes rolled into the shirt sleeve of their v-neck tees.

 

I’m glad we don’t have anything better to worry about any more than Great-Grandma Siegel’s honeymoon as she turns down her environmentally sensitive fluorescent mood lighting and gently caresses Nana Kopolev’s Depends thong and fends off the arthritis in her diddle finger.

 

New York, NY.  You can’t smoke a cigarette but the Mayor can flick God the bird right in his stupid, fucking face.  Let’s move the reception to the nearest mosque for an exercise in the tolerance of this idiocy, shall we?

Why Is Reagan The Democrat’s New Favoritest President Evar?

July 23rd, 2011 at 3:17 pm by Brian

More than likely just to piss you off because they’re a completely petty bunch of bitches like that.  Also, that they’re petty at such high institutional levels that you can’t ignore them.  And that they’re disingenuous shitbirds who think we’re as historically ignorant as they are.

Which is impossible.

In the course of the last week, I’ve gotten TMJ syndrome from how frequently my jaw keeps dropping in response to the number of Leftists who insist that Ronald Reagan was actually a born again, tax and spend, compromising New Dealer.  What sayeth these leftwing Revisionists of their new Nicene Creed and the canonization of St. Ronnie?  Whatever their talking points memo tells them to because they’re a bunch of braindead cut-and-pasters:

After he switched to the Republican Party in 1962, Ronald Reagan famously quipped: “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.”Now, the Republican Party is doing the same thing to him — and Democrats are happy to take Reagan back….Nobody knows what Reagan, who died in 2004, would make of the current fight over the debt limit. But 100 years after Reagan’s birth, it’s clear that the Tea Party Republicans have little regard for the policies of the president they claim to venerate.

Tea Party Republicans call a vote to raise the debt ceiling a threat to their very existence; Reagan presided over 18 increases in the debt ceiling during his presidency.

Tea Party Republicans say they would sooner default on the national debt than raise taxes; Reagan agreed to raise taxes 11 times.

This is a man that they spit on during his funeral who they’re glad to slander with such idiocy now that he can’t refute them.

Nobody knows what Martin Luther King, Jr. would think about the state of race relations today, he died in 1968,  but I’m sure he would be glad to lead the KKK in the lynching of Barack Obama from the closest, highest cherry tree. He did like to lead people after all.  And he did have trees in his yard.  Is that too strained of a comparison of what Commies like Dana Milbank have proffered above?

Or like when Jesus said “I am my brother’s keeper” in response to Rome’s lack of universal health care.

This is the sort of contrarian drivel masquerading as creative and versatile writing that we’ve come to expect from our colleges in the last several decades.  Take the truth, subtract all historical context,  turn it on it’s head and tell everyone that black is actually white and right couldn’t be more wrong.  Like Bill Clinton, the budget balancer – deficit reducer – welfare reformer – surplus providing Saviour.

It’s all mildly amusing were our country not whistling in its economic graveyard the theme song  from the decidedly, no-where-close-to-Reaganesque Obama presidency.   Part of this, I imagine, is based on an extremely false comparison from leftwing “economist” Brad DeLong whose adherents commandeered a Wikipedia page claiming that Republican Presidents Raise The Debt Ceiling More Than Democrat Presidents.

End of Story from Wikipidiocy, right?

Were that it true that the President is the one who writes and passes the budget.  A look at every Republican President shows either a divided House and Senate or total Democrat control of both.  So, if you can look beyond the fact that the President is not the one who passes the budget, this argument might appear to be true.  Reality and Mr. DeLong have an estranged relationship it seems.

Otherwise, one can surmise that everytime the Democrats control Congress that they spend like drunken sailors with other people’s money.   I stole that last line.  I don’t remember who said it.  Obviously, some self-hating Democrat.

As long as the commies are re-discovering Madman Reagan – who they hated with all their little black hearts and souls – how about you listen to some of his other speeches too?

The Perils of Big Government  (On Welfare, Social Security, Eminent Domain abuse, Interference with private business)

Reagan’s 1964 “A Time For Choosing”  (Our nation’s enemies, individual liberty)

Or, if you’d really like to cheez their whiz, make them read Reagan’s entire speech on the debt ceiling that they love selectively quoting so often:

My fellow Americans:

There’s good news. The Federal deficit for this year is expected to drop by some 30 percent compared to last year. That could be a whopping $65 billion reduction, and it happened without a tax increase. There’s also some disappointing news. The Congress, once again, has passed a bill that puts me in the position of accepting legislation with which I fundamentally disagree.

The bill would continue the authority of the United States Government to borrow funds which we must do to avoid the default on our obligations. This legislation also includes a so-called fix of the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings deficit reduction law, but it really is an attempt to force me eventually either to sign a tax bill or to accept massive cuts in national defense, or both. I would have no problem with signing an extension of the debt limit. But the choice is for the United States to default on its debts for the first time in our 200-year history, or to accept a bill that has been cluttered up. This is yet another example of Congress trying to force my hand, and it’s one more reason why the President needs the lineitem veto to separate the good from the bad.

Unfortunately, Congress consistently brings the Government to the edge of default….

etc., etc., you’ve heard the next paragraph ad nauseum from an ad put out by Democrats browbeating Republicans as saying Reagan like raising taxes and the debt ceiling.   Twisting the words of a dead man for an obscenely partisan end to claim he supported something he absolutely did not.

For those who say further responsible spending reductions are not possible, they are wrong. For those who say the only choice is undermining our national security at a time when the United States is close to an agreement with the Soviet Union on reducing nuclear weapons, they are wrong. For those who say more taxes will solve our deficit problem, they are wrong. Every time Congress increases taxes, the deficit does not decrease, spending increases. It’s time for a clear and consistent policy to reduce the Federal budget deficit.

In the weeks ahead, Congress will have the opportunity to meet this commitment. So today, let’s get some things clear. I will not hesitate to use my veto to hold down excess spending, and I will spell out the impact that defense cuts will have on our long-term security interests. You don’t need more taxes to balance the budget. Congress needs the discipline to stop spending more, and that can be done with the passage of a constitutional amendment to balance the budget.

That’s from the same speech that comment threads have been flooding claiming that Reagan supports raising taxes 18 gillion times and the debt ceiling millions more.  Because Democrats are liars at their cores.

To us about the words of others.  To themselves for what they are.

 

Weekly Idiocracy Roundtable: The Grand Bargain That Never Existed Has Electrolytes Edition

July 17th, 2011 at 6:22 am by Brian

Newsbusters captured an entertaining exchange between Charles “Not Sure” Krauthammer and President Camacho’s sycophantic press corps in the People’s Republic of Lemmingrad.  The similarities are facepalmslappingly uncanny.

Grab some Brawndo and enjoy:

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: [The President] talks a good game. “Oh, I’m prepared to do entitlements, I’m ready to do entitlements.” Not once has he ever enunciated in public – other than all these leaks which I don’t trust for half a second – one structural change in entitlements, and without that, everybody over the age of nine knows we are not going to get a handle on the debt. So let’s hear him say it in public once.

NINA TOTENBERG, NPR: So why is it when he offered the big deal, the $4 trillion deal…

GORDON PETERSON, HOST: The grand bargain. It’s got electrolytes.

TOTENBERG: …the grand bargain (It’s got electrolytes), Republicans backed away from it?  It’s got what Republicans crave.

KRAUTHAMMER: When did he offer that?

TOTENBERG: He offered that last week.  What Republicans crave!

KRAUTHAMMER: Where?

TOTENBERG: In, he did it, publicly and in negotiations.

KRAUTHAMMER: In your leaks? What’s in the $4 trillion?

TOTENBERG: But Charles.

KRAUTHAMMER: Give me a number. Explain to me what’s in it.

TOTENBERG: Why is it, in two, in matter of two days, Republicans backed away from that and said we don’t want it?  It’s got what Republicans crave.  It’s got electrolytes!

KRAUTHAMMER: You accept everything he says, a $4 trillion deal, if you don’t have a single item in it that you can enunciate.

TOTENBERG: Well, I’m not at the table. Perhaps you are, but I’m not.

RAUTHAMMER: Well then how does he expect America to accept something in which he explains nothing?

TOTENBERG:    But he’s giving Republicans what they crave.  He actually said I’m going to get heat from my own people.

KRAUTHAMMER: My colleagues are demonstrating a point I’ve been trying to make about how you have a completely compliant, pliant, supine press accepting every leak out of the White House. Tell me, we have been told, I’ve heard it again and again that the President’s prepared to do, to make cuts in entitlements. Name me one.

These are the allegedly smart, well-informed Washington insider media.  Which one can escape the lure of the mystery box???  Entitlement reform might save Social Security, but the mystery box could be anything!

At this point President Camacho, aka Captain Awesome, flicked everyone the bird and acknowledged that everyone’s shit is real sensitive right now but that he has a plan to make the crops grow again.  Crops which we can then slap out of a starving child’s mouth so that we can put it into a car’s gas tank which will ultimately ruin it’s engine.   A very complicated plan that requires a measly additional $2,000,000,000,000.00 to make it through the next year or he’s going to be forced to shoot grandma in the face, stab our troops in the back and layoff all the food inspectors.

No cuts to a non-existent high speed rail to Iowa City is still untouchable though.  Still got a billion to give to Hamas.

Let them eat Extra Big Ass Fries.  No, wait.  You can’t have Extra Big Ass Fries.  Only I and my fugly wife can have Extra Big Ass Fries. F*ck you, I’m eating.

You can have Peas.  They actually do have electrolytes.

Diarrhea of the Mouth of a Mad Black Woman

July 16th, 2011 at 8:57 am by Brian

Admittedly, Tyler Perry looks better in a dress and is more ladylike.

Drudge has been leading with Sheila “I am a Queen” Jackson-Lee’s accusations that  Obama is facing unprecedented opposition because of his race and that no other President has faced the kind of disrespect that he has because he’s half-white.  *Yawn*

I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president…has received the kind of attacks and disagreements and inability to work,” Jackson Lee, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, said. “Only this one. Read between the lines.”

“I do not understand what I think is the maligning and maliciousness of this president. Why is he different?” the Texas Democrat asked. “In my community that is the question we raise. In the minority community that is a question being raised. Why is this president being treated so disrespectfully?”

“Read between the lines”??? Given the illiteracy of Mrs. Jackson-Lee’s constituency, it’s a bit insensitive to ask them to read anything not in spraypaint or Spanish.  But it is instructive to know that she only represents “the minority community”. Of course, whites are a minority in her community but she doesn’t  mean to say that she represents them.  /read between the lines

This is coming from the Cynthia McKinney of Texas.  Elected time and time again from the dregs of Houston’s welfare wards.  They elect her for the expressed purposes of keeping her in zebra print moo moos, flowing gold scarfs, and to be a professional bigot representing Houston’s parolees and babymamas.

When it comes to matters of “showing disrespect”, I’m inclined to agree with her.  She stands out as one of the most disrespectful members of Congress of all time.  To her staff, to her colleagues, to airline attendants, to the American people and to a former President.  That’s not a mote in her eye, it’s a lumber yard soaked with gasoline and set ablaze.

A former staffer recalls one revealing episode during the height of the financial crisis in the waning months of the Bush administration. Jackson Lee demanded a meeting with a top Treasury aide, even though she did not sit on any of the committees with jurisdiction over financial matters. As her car pulled up outside the Treasury, Jackson Lee told her driver to park directly outside the door.

Due to the proximity of the Treasury Department’s headquarters to the White House, Secret Service officers told the driver not to park there. After an argument with the agents, who kept telling the driver to back off, Jackson Lee finally emerged from the building.

As the car drove away, a Secret Service van flashed its lights behind them. “Keep driving,” Jackson Lee told her staffer. Ultimately, the driver pulled over in defiance of the boss’s wishes. At this point, Jackson Lee emerged from the car, screaming, “I’m Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee! Who do you think you are?” to a team of Secret Service agents.

Jackson Lee accused the “white” agent at the gate of racism, claiming she wouldn’t have to deal with “this stuff” when Barack Obama became president. She then filed a formal complaint with the Secret Service, which prompted an investigation. A Treasury official later explained that the accusation had been dismissed because the agent in question was Hispanic, not white.

This is but one of dozens of examples.  Her deck only has race cards in it.  If this woman was any more of a loose cannon, Eric Holder would have already sold her to the Mexican drug cartels to kill border agents.  Check out the entire Daily Caller piece from earlier this year.  That’s just an excerpt of page 1 of 7 on Hurricane Sheila. Be thankful she failed in her quest to become a judge.

Welcome to your post-racial America, folks.

If it’s named Obama, it’s good at walking out on it’s responsibilities:

So far the Moody’s threat is having precisely zero impact on the debt ceiling farce, with just 8 days left until July 22. But the latest development is certain to jar both S&P and Fitch, not to mention Dagong, out of hibernation. Reuters reports that President Barack Obama abruptly ended a tense budget meeting on Wednesday with Republican leaders by walking out of the room.

Is Obama half Japanese too?  His economy is so bad that even his Kabuki needs worky.

If only Obama drove his own car we could see how many other similarities he and his dreamy father might have.  Instead, he’s playing chicken with our economy.

Everyone.  Get your prescriptions filled and your shotgun shells.

This is exactly what he wanted in the first place.  When Jugears presides over our Moody’s, S&P and Fitch downgrading he’ll get an A+ on his Cloward-Piven lab project. Then we’ll all finally be equal.  Equally worthless.

Where’s Their Messiah Now?

July 11th, 2011 at 10:25 am by Preston Taylor Holmes

Don’t tell Peggy the Moocher though, I’m sure she’s still down at the payday loan office trying to figure out why Barack didn’t pay her mortgage and fill up her car for her.

Certainly, thinking such a thing is the height of cluelessness in the first place. However, the black middle class, which grew and prospered over the last decade has been (*gasp*) hit hardest by their jug-eared hero’s anti-capitalist economic policies.

In 2004, the median net worth of white households was $134,280, compared with $13,450 for black households, according to an analysis of Federal Reserve data by the Economic Policy Institute. By 2009, the median net worth for white households had fallen 24 percent to $97,860; the median net worth for black households had fallen 83 percent to $2,170, according to the institute.

Austin described the wealth gap this way: “In 2009, for every dollar of wealth the average white household had, black households only had two cents.”

Here’s the problem with the wealth-redistributionists — well, there’s more than one, but we’ll start here. These class warriors live in a world of Marxist economic theory that has, as its primary objective, to punish the achievers in the top tax brackets and bring them down. To them, having a rising tide that lifts all boats is somehow unfair to the smaller boats, even as they’re now able to get new gold-plated hardware to replace the rusted-out metal junk and new pine-scented air-fresheners to hang from the bridge’s rear-view mirror.

These jealousy-ridden lunatics only see the disparity between the white and black median household incomes, when they should really be horrified at the catastrophic drop that both demographics have suffered under the boot of the Obama/Soros/Geithner/Bernanke Crime Family.

But that would be too logical. If these race-baiters had any common-sense, they wouldn’t spend their lives race-baiting.

Wiley said Obama should be applauded for several initiatives that have helped the black middle class, such as programs to modify certain mortgages and prevent foreclosure because of job loss. But she would like Obama to aggressively counter the suggestion that first black president would be showing favoritism if he specifically helped black people.

“It’s the right thing to do for the nation,” she said. “Black people are a huge segment of the population, they’re especially hard-hit, and the country cannot recover if the black community — as well as the white community and others — does not recover.”

Actually, ma’am, they are still between 12-13% of the population according to the 2010 Acorn Census, which doesn’t exactly qualify as “huge”, despite their over-representation in the left-leaning media and entertainment industries.

For all those guilt-ridden white liberals out there who thought that voting in the first black president (well, technically, the second) would get you off the hook, think again. The class-warfare, race-obsessed media and political classes will never let it go. You could paint the House and Senate black and you’d still have the same tedious meme to wade through anytime you picked up a newspaper.

For an easier-to-understand, USA Today-style look at the problem, Cranky can help you out.

A Modest Proposal: Why Can’t We Abort All The Gay Babies?

July 10th, 2011 at 1:51 pm by Brian

Settled science.  Unsettled.  Unsettling. What’s the difference?

Like most of the dozens of people watching milquetoast Minnesotan Tim Pawlenty (the reborn conservative firebrand) on Meet The Depressed this morning, I squirmed a little in watching his explanation to The Fabulous David Gregory as to whether People Being Born Gay Is Settled Science.

Was it ever settled?  I didn’t get the memo.  Neither did ABC’s 20/20 a few years ago:

It’s a medical mystery, one of the biggest debates of our time: Is there a gene that determines whether you’re gay or straight? Some scientists think so, saying sexual identity is mostly biological. Others say it’s a learned behavior.

Well that sure sounds settled to me!  Some say “yes”.  Some say “no”.  Clear as mud.  “One of the biggest debates of our time” that apparently was settled so long ago that you’re a fool not to recite the literature chapter and verse.

Not that kids need science to confirm what they already know. Zach O’Connor, now 18, says he knew he was different from the time he was 5 or 6. Most of his friends were girls, and he once asked his parents for a Barbie Dream House.

Let’s not knock the Barbie Dream House as being gay.  Oh, it was pink alright.  But under it’s shackled roof, Barbie broke free of the chains of her oppressive patriarch.  The Barbie Dream House is about freedom and wealth building not just a potential platform for felching.

Above-ground pools are kind of gay.

Who needs science when you have the feelings of a 5 year old who played with a Barbie doll?  Like Global Warming, who needs science to confirm what you already know?

For people who despise religion, they’ve certainly got the blind faith part down.

Without the so-called “Gay Gene”, with the Pink Triangle representing their Holy Trinity, liberals would not be able to divide people into other subsections to pander with promises of tax benefits, employment benefits and lawsuits.  They’d be left to explain homosexuality in that unfamiliar territory governed by personal responsibility. Much better to fall back on articles of faith to explain such Pentecostal Trouser-snake handling.

Born This Way:  Well, some faiths do like to handle snakes.

Having said all of this, for argument’s sake, let’s say that everyone who is gay is born gay.  The lovable, hairy Piltdown Man of Homosexuality – the Gay Gene ™ – has been isolated.  Is it not a parent’s prerogative to gene therapy the gayness away?  Does it not fall under the flag of Choice ™ for a parent to abort their potentially gay child as you would expect them to for one with Down Syndrome?

With full-throated support, I expect everyone who believes in the Gay Gene and feminists to show principled resolve in condoning parents manipulating their fetus’s gene to eliminate the gayness or aborting the entire next generation of gays if that is their sanctified Right To Choose.

Or, you can embrace your usual jelly-spined logic and demand the government regulate a woman’s womb as a sanctuary city for gay fetuses only.  Keep your laws off my body unless it’s providing subsidized housing for a protected species.  Governed by your Obamacare sanctioned EPA OB-GYN.

Armed SWAT Team at the ready to escort your gay baby from your neo-Nazi  uterus to a neonatal pre-K with the requisite number of racially sensitive dolls and whole milk percentages.
