PUT ON MY DANCING SHOES!
Posted May 8, 2012on:
There is more “tap dancing” around issues than all the Fred Astaire movies put together.
“I may have said this but I really meant that” is about the only statement these people claim when addressing whatever audience they may stand before because –goddammit! – we must always keep in mind that some moron with a closed minded point of view may feel offended or insulted. Better to appear “friendly” to some intolerant yahoo than ever appear “intolerant of the intolerance”. Give me a break!
Obama is still “evolving” after 50 years on earth about his position on gay marriage. Romney is reluctant to be pinned down on ANY statements that might offend the Religious Right. Lurking behind this overall reluctance to actually say what they mean is an element of discrimination against segments of the population begging for equality.
Sexual orientation is determined at the moment of conception. It is not a lifestyle “choice”. You are what you are and no one can change that any more than you can change the color of your skin.
But you would never know that from the statements issued by these idiots running for office. Still “pondering” the data, these fools would have you believe that they are “considering” the efficacy of science as if the jury were still out. Unbelievable.
Sorry folks, but it is impossible to turn back the clock. Science has identified the “mystery” of our DNA in separating genes that determine so much of who we are. Evolution has traced our ancestry as having evolved from animal life forms. It is a myth that the world was created in 7 days. Noah never built an arc. Impossible that Jonah lived in the belly of a whale. Adam and Eve did not resemble Brad and Angelina.
Every couple of years a new scientific “breakthrough” is announced and a handful of naysayers arise in dispute. Specious arguments are made in the face of fact. Climate change deniers refuse to accept that deregulation of industries are producing dirty air and polluted waters that leads to global warming.
But it would be refreshing for once to hear one viable candidate for office actually stand up and defend scientific and biological conclusions instead of worrying about the intentionally ill informed who prefer to embrace ignorance. Bowing to the whims of the minority is an exercise in stupidity. It makes about as much sense are an argument surrounding gravity.
Equal rights is just that. The right to be treated just like everybody else. It is a guarantee under our Constitution but for those running to “uphold and defend” that document it becomes an arguable point when there is no argument to be made.
As these politicians continue to “dance around” the issue the world keeps moving on. There is nothing more shameful than watching intelligence walking hand in hand with sheer ignorance out of a shallow need to seduce votes.
For Christ’s sake stand up and defend the rights of all for once and let the chips fall where they may! Who cares what extremists think since there is a reason why they have earned that label.
Only leave the “dancing” to Fred Astaire. Her did it with such grace.
