Bernie Sanders responds to abortion question at Liberty University

American Graffiti

Found this over at BrainSpank and thought it was a very interesting take on the Immigration issue that seems to be the cornerstone of the Republican agenda right now.

by Michael Douglass
Immigration is not a problem in America.
It is not an issue.
It never has been.
It’s not a deficit in any way.
It’s a goddamn net positive for all of us.
It always has been.
What it is now, is what it always has been.
A deliberately organized, thoroughly pernicious distraction.
No immigrant has ever stolen a job from an American.
Teabilly fucks should be grateful for the brown folks because without them their colons would  be bound up like mummified sausages.  Their rectums would be like packed with concrete for not being able to afford roughage in their diet.  Brown people are the only reason these miscreants can afford to supplement their ramen, spaghettio and pancake diets with fiber in the form of leafy greens, vegetables and grains so they can take a decent crap in whatever they recognize as a toilet.
Build a wall.
Fuck me that’s stupid.
When was the last time a goddamn wall worked?
Lord of The Rings?
You wanna end it?  Go after the fat white business owners who exploit the slave labor.  They capitalize the profits and socialize the losses and  never miss an opportunity to propagate the xenophobic hatred.  Demonizing the poor brown folks and their wives and children is the only way to insure they get to abuse the help at restaurants, hotels and on cruises and still turn a profit.
We don’t need a northern border because they understand we’re fucking nuts and want no part of this.  Pretty soon they will need a wall.
Nevermind that Mexican immigration is at damn near net zero and the only reason anyone from south of our border ever wanted to come here is to flee the horrific conditions that American greed and lust created in their countries in the first place.
We complain they breed irresponsibly but never acknowledge that it’s because we forced religion down their necks with muskets hundreds of years ago to “civilize” them.
The tacit agreement is they can avail themselves of emergency rooms and a limited amount of other social services and our hamburgers and salads don’t cost fifty bucks a pop.
We absolutely enjoy this transaction whether we’re aware of it or not.
It’s the most disgusting thing I’ve ever observed about American culture save for the open air practice of slavery.
And here’s what flat out amazes me.  It’s the number one republican campaign issue.  Number fucking one.  Of all the issues facing us, like our survival as a species, perpetual war and America’s own very real potential for becoming a third world country, this is what the mouth breathers are screeching about.  Something like half of us are self righteously indignant enough about brown people to somehow single them out for costing us a few dollars a month for the services they provide at an insane bargain rate.
What the fuck is wrong with us?
Like any of them would risk voting or reporting a crime or trying to get food stamps or welfare.
So once again half of us are so consumed with worry about this “problem” of our own device, it’s become a single issue litmus test for every single republican candidate.
There is one racist prick jackmammering the rest of us with this message and instead of calling him on it, the republican bench struggles to say the stupidest shit they can think of hoping for a spotlight in his venue.  It’s like they all fell off a truck he was driving and can’t think of anything but to chase it.
Drinks for my friends.

Marriage Has Nothing To Do With Religion

It really is amazing listening to the debate about marriage equality. The fact that so many feel gays and lesbians getting married affects them personally and goes against their personal religion really is quite incredible. The argument that a marriage between two people affects anyone besides those two people is just ridiculous. However, there they are– these “defenders” of marriage.
But here’s the thing — when it comes down to the nuts and bolts of the ACTUAL institution of marriage. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with religion. I mean, of course, it can in your personal life, and you can have a wedding at a church and exchange your personal vows under whatever God you want if that suits your fancy, but in regards to what marriage actually is, religion isn’t required.
If you need further proof of this, here are some reasons that may open your eyes to the actual institution of marriage, and why marriage equality is so necessary.
The most obvious reason marriage has nothing to do with religion is the fact that marriage certificates are not given out by the church, they are given out by the state. “By the power invested in me, by the state of _____, I now pronounce you…. ” The power isn’t granted by God, it’s granted by government. So when certain states took it upon themselves to deny marriage to specific individuals based upon sexual orientation, it’s in direct violation of the 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. And with the government granted marriage certificate comes over 1,100 rights and protections. Yes, 1,100. That’s a big number, isn’t it? That’s what same-sex couples were denied for so long. Now you might see why the Supreme Court ruled the way they did.
