Fuck Your God

"Hey, you have your religion in my politics" "Hey, you have your politics in my religion" Two tastes that could be great, just NOT together. Let's discuss how religious zealots are ruining the spirit of the United States and trampling your rights for the sake of their own god.

"Chuck" currently resides in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. While he finds organized religion and their fanatics to be morally bankrupt and power hungry he also believes in the Constitution and our Bill of Rights which allow all of us to believe in any god we choose and the ability to worship in any manner our selves feel to be correct and good and right. So long as we respect others' rights to do so as well. The latter concept being foreign to most religious folk.

Our Constitution is in good hands.

The GOP is smarting. They are continually being trounced in elections and the country is telling them they are out of touch. And most of what we hear from the right is just that. The issues that matter to the American people right now are not the issues Republicans are talking about. In stead of relevancy they are engaging in hissy fits and acting like sore losers. And these tactics are losing them face, respect, and will lose them more elections. The people want solutions and bipartisanship. They want a government that works together to get things done for the people. But the Republicans feel that it's their way or the highway and they will simply pack up their toys and go home. For shame.

With Justice Souter retiring in June, the Democrats are able to appoint someone to the Supreme Court this year. I can't think of a more appropriate person to have this honor than our current president. Barack Obama was a Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago. He is not an "it's who I know" Ivy League MBA grad. Our President actually understands law and the high law of our land. He has studied it and practiced it and taught it to others. Who better to appoint an interpreter of that law?

Whether you like Obama or not, whether you voted for him or any other Democrat or opted for a Republican, there can be no arguing that he is perfect for this opportunity. What we must hope, though, is that the Republicans will not make this into yet another "Circus of Irrelevancy" that they have developed such a knack for. Of all the things they are getting wrong we wish for them to get this right. No current politician is better suited for this than the one set to engage in it.

I collective sigh of relief. Maybe we should ask him to nominate Fannie? She seems relatively even-keeled and with common sense. And she has a great sense of humor. We could use a good woman up on that hill. And how progressive would it be to not only have a woman, but a lesbian vegetarian? We'll just have to wait and see.

Actually, I'd love to see Hillary Clinton get the nomination. It would be just lovely to see her sticking a thorn in the rightwingers' sides for the next 30 years or so...
