The Rest of the Equation

So let's get this straight. While we're all standing around, whooping it up and dancing in the streets, storming the White House fence and partying, honking our horns back and forth across 125th Street, being all self-congratulatory?

While we're all, Look at us, we can elect a black man, prejudice is a thing of the past?

The most liberal state in the Union is out there quietly voting in favour of Proposition 8.

That's right, folks, we can let a man of a different colour into the White House, but God forbid we give equal rights to all those gay people.

The fuck is this? A democracy, or Animal Farm?

Yep. My thoughts exactly. And I live here.

So... are you suggesting that the will of the majority may not be what is best for the whole of the populace?

thefirecat said...

Actually, yes, I believe that is exactly what I'm saying (providing the majority of voters actually represents the majority). Because lord knows there's NEVER been an occasion when the majority has been vastly, glaringly, horrifically wrong.

Just checking. And I agree... I just think it's possible that you may sometimes see the silhouettes of two faces where I would likely just see the candlestick.

I'm with you 100% on [I]this[/I] one, mind you.

It's quite possible. But then again, I think it's also great practice to try to squint my eyes to see if I can't maybe see the candlestick, just for a minute. What I find interesting about that particular experiment is that, once you DO see the candlestick, you can't go back to just seeing faces. The candlestick always glimmers underneath, trying to get seen too.

(PS, how boring would it be if we always agreed?)

GroundFault71 said...

True. The last thing upon which we agreed in full was quite likely the Cheesesteak Spring Rolls.

Yep.

LOL, I'd been wondering who the hell you were. And now I can say with certainty that you almost always DO see the candlestick where I see the faces.

I love you Sara...

This issue does really tick me off, I just don't understand why the hell they can't get recognized.

There you go. Jesus has spoken.ROFL.

(love you right back, 'Zeus!)
