What difference, at this point, does it make?

Hillary at her Severest

Mrs. Clinton issued forth a statement on gay marriage:

“LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. That includes marriage. That’s why I support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law.”

Let’s examine the first phrase I emphasized:

“…they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. That includes marriage.

Marriage is not a Right of Citizenship. It requires a license.

li·cense  (lsns)

n.

1.
a. Official or legal permission to do or own a specified thing. See Synonyms at permission.
b. A document, plate, or tag that is issued as proof of official or legal permission: a driver’s license.
2. Deviation from normal rules, practices, or methods in order to achieve a certain end or effect.
3. Latitude of action, especially in behavior or speech. See Synonyms at freedom.
4.

a. Lack of due restraint; excessive freedom: “When liberty becomes license, dictatorship is near” (Will Durant).
b. Heedlessness for the precepts of proper behavior; licentiousness.
tr.v.li·censed, li·cens·ing, li·cens·es

1. To give or yield permission to or for.
2. To grant a license to or for; authorize. See Synonyms at authorize.

This is where people like Mrs. Clinton get themselves all verklempt.  She is trying to conflate a right out of a privilege. That would be like someone claiming a right to drive a vehicle instead of a privilege to use the roads. Or, conversely, if she claimed the Right to keep and bear arms was merely a privilege. As you can see, the two, a right and a privilege, are mutually exclusive. Kinda like Hillary and Janet Reno. Anyway, let’s move on to the second emphasized portion of her statement:

She prefaced these remarks with-

“LGBT Americans are our colleagues… blah, blah, blahblahblahblah…That’s why I support marriage for lesbian and gay couples.

There is a glaring problem with this statement- the definition of the acronym LGBT:

An acronym used to shorten the title: Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered.

​Mrs. Clinton’s statement only goes as far as lesbians and gays. Why does she not support Bisexual’s marriage? Could it be that the very definition of bisexual means more than one partner? How could she be so close minded? Don’t be a hater, Hillary.

And why wouldn’t Mrs. Clinton support transgendered marriage? Could it be that if one can change their gender, one could also change their race? The census only asks respondents how they “self identify”. It seems fair to me to let people identify themselves anyway they see fit- especially when it comes to government benefits.

So hurry with this Hillary, I gotta get my claim in.

  1. What a great photo of Hillary! One thing I will say for these phony-ass democrats like HRC, Bill, and Obama. At least when they do a ridiculous 180 on the issue of marriage, they don’t come up with a cringe-inducing explanation like the one Rob Portman used. YIKES!! And, Rebel M, and the rest of you, if you can think of anyone more qualified to speak on the issue of marriage than Bill or Hillary Clinton, I’d like to see that person.

  2. 5 million dollars for Senators hair products and Hillary gets a $2.00 jar of Dippity-do™. It just ain’t right.

  3. OK, now this is getting ridiculous. Madonna at the GLAAD awards “joked on stage that she wanted to join the Boy Scouts but was rejected.”
    “I think that’s f—ed up,” she said. “I can build a fire. I know how to pitch a tent. I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees.”

    Madonna subsequently declared, “I think they should change their stupid rules.”

    Yaknow, the gays and lesbians should change their rules. Maybe they could allow the celibate into their little cavalcade of impudence. Why do we always have to change our rules? They should lead by example.

    • I’m trying to visualize what it would be like if gays and lesbians changed their rules. Would women have to let their hair grow? Would men have to drink domestic beer?
