Vote NO on Prop 8

Amistad Maupin was on KFOG this morning and calling for “NO” votes on Prop 8.   He shouldn’t have had to ask, any open minded person would oppose it anyway.  Does it really matter if you are gay or straight or if you want to marry someone from another race or a different country?  But think about this, this video may be a bit satirical right now, but once you let Government get a foot in the door then you are sure to be in trouble.

Still think it’s funny?  Remember when you used to walk through an airport without all this interference in you business?  Ask the Brits if they remember when they could walk freely down the street without being on camera.  This bill is just another way to let the Government interfere, or worse it could be a way to ensuring only the “preferred” are allowed to marry. I think Hitler pioneered that one.

Big Brother is not just watching you, he is trying to totally control you.

Thanks to the Courage Campaign for posting this video.  Go and pledge with them to vote NO on prop 8.

Now, here’s the crucial piece to the Prop 8 puzzle.

There’s a little problem that we need your help to fix ASAP. Voters are confused about Prop 8, perhaps understandably. Intuitively wanting to “support” marriage equality, they assume that a “Yes” vote is the right vote. Wrong.

Here, Ellen DeGeneres does a better job of explaining it. And she’s a lot funnier than I am:

The wording of Prop 8 is tricky. It’s like if someone asked you, “You don’t want dessert, right?” But you do want dessert so you say, “Yes,” which really means you don’t want dessert. And if you say, “No,” which means you do want dessert — it sounds like you don’t. Either way, you don’t get what you want. See — confusing. Just like Prop. 8.

So, in case I haven’t made myself clear, I’m FOR gay marriage. And in order to protect that right — please VOTE NO on Proposition 8. And now that you’re informed, spread the word. I’m begging you. I can’t return the wedding gifts — I love my new toaster.
