Does this surprise anyone?

The GOP on abortion: I'm not a woman, so I don't think anyone should have an abortion either.
The GOP on voter rights: I'm not black, so I don't think there's racism in America.
The GOP on Medicare: I'm not poor, so I don't think we need it.

FloydA: Can someone translate that from idiot to English?  Does he really not know the difference between optional and mandatory?


From what I see of conservative opinions, no, he probably doesn't.  To them, everything is either mandatory or banned, like abortion (not banned, therefore mandatory), school prayer (not mandatory, therefore banned), and gay marriage (if un-banned, will then necessarily be mandatory).  They don't know how to think for themselves or make their own decisions, so just assume that all laws are telling them how to live their lives rather than giving them options as to how to choose to live their lives.

Hey Saxby... I got news for you: you weren't elected to write laws for yourself, you were elected to write laws for EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY. That includes people who aren't like you and don't share your beliefs. You know, being that this is a free country and all.

But therein lies the problem.... Theocratic statists don't like freedom. Saxby, and the rest of the GOP schmucks standing in the way of civil rights again, use freedom as a rhetorical tool with their words and stomp all over freedom as a real principle with their actions.

The GOP of today hates freedom.

What do you call it when you feel the need to go on national TV and make an unsolicited, unprovoked comment that you're not gay?

It's interesting. He could have said virtually the same thing in order to voice his support for gay marriage.

"I'm not gay, so I'm not going to marry one."
"Don't like gay marriage? Don't have one."


What's the difference between these two expressions, really? Isn't the one just the first person version of the other? Yet, apparently, Saxby used his version to say he does not support gay marriage.

Interesting.

He defended his consistency, saying he's also not female, Mexican, black or poor, and you don't see him going out of his way to help those people either.

The problem, Saxby, is your complete lack of empathy, right up to the moment the balls hit your chin.
Just like Portman.
The balls hit his chin, and then he Got It.
You have to lookk beyong where you are right now.
See the balls coming.
And stop sucking before they hit your chin.
That is wisdom.
That is representing your constituents.
That, Saxby, is Good Government.

George Walker Bush: 50% of kids being born to single mothers. Let's destroy the family unit completely. Obama will provide.



Troll aside, how will gay marriage keep heterosexuals from marrying eachother?
b) If you're concerned about single motherhood, perhaps we should expand sex education beyond abstinence-only and distribute free condoms. Or even stop limiting abortion. Do you think that will help?

Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GAy) doesn't support marriage equality for one simple reason: he isn't gay out.

FTFY, Senator.

He doesn't want gays to marry or to be recognized as normal for the same reason the rest of the Republican Threes don't.  If being gay is OK, then kids growing up as threes or higher will be OK and out and grow up with relatively normal behavior & relationship patterns.  That means very few people on the other side of that lovely little waist-high hole...

First one is quite literally saying "I don't favor gay marriage because I am not gay and it doesn't not affect me therefore I don't care but I care enough to actively oppose it because."

HotWingConspiracy: Maybe he really thinks making it legal means he has to marry a man.

Old people get soft headed and everywhere they go fox news is on.


The fact that he would feel any pressure to marrying a man is quite revealing I would say.

Genevieve Marie: Rapmaster2000: And Saxby is supposed to be the most moderate GOP Southern Senator.

Seriously? The guy won by insinuating that a triple amputee veteran was the same as Osama Bin Laden.

And yet you're probably right. He probably is the most moderate of the GOP southern senators.

God help us all.


Yep... and it's because everyone in his party moved right and he didn't:  http://www.slate.com/blogs/weigel/2013/01/25/saxby_chambliss_the_mode r ate_we_never_knew.html

When asked if his views had changed on gay marriage, the Georgia Republican quipped: "I'm not gay. So I'm not going to marry one."

...WHAT THE FARK DOES THAT MEAN? That's not a quip, that's an embolism that results in random words being strung together. The "reporter" should've asked if he needed immediate medical attention.
