ROWAN COUNTY KENTUCKY CLERK KIM DAVIS SHOULD NOT BE FIRED BECAUSE SHE WAS A WHORING SLUT BEFORE SHE FOUND RELIGION SHE SHOULD BE FIRED BECAUSE SHE IS WHAT THE FAR RIGHT HATES THE MOST SOMEONE WHO IS TAKING PUBLIC FUNDS TO DO NO WORK

Sure, I was ready this morning to write about what a hypocrite on marriage Kim Davis is considering she’s been married four times had twins out of wedlock and divorced three times. Her life from 1984 until her bolt from the blue conversion four years ago is no caricature of conservative religious people in America it is the reality. But when you come right down to it I could not possibly care less about who Kim Davis fucked while she was married or how many times she went to a clerk to file for divorce. [I am struggling with the fact that if their had been a really fundamentalist clerk at the time she was pregnant out of wedlock and trying to file her final papers what a shitstorm that would have been in 1994.–F.S.]

Kim Davis is paid $80,000 a year to be Rowan County clerk. She is being paid to not do her job currently in a place where the median household income is $33,081. Davis as an individual makes more than twice the household income of this rural, poor county. She is living a lifestyle far above the people who come to her office on a daily basis. Conservatives have whined for decades about welfare and how much money can be saved by cutting off single mothers and minorities who need a safety net.

In Hindsight
Well here’s your chance conservatives to cut off the money spigot to a religion crazed bigot. Just taking the gap between the household income figure for Rowan County, $46,919, and dividing that by 12, $3,909.92 would provide food stamps [at Kentucky’s rate of 127.33 per person per month.-F.S.] for 30 people. Not three people or even fifteen people but 30! For all these years conservatives have foamed at the mouth about taxpayer money being wasted. Here you go right wingers this is your chance to show America and the world that your fiscal issues are more important than your social issues. The Supreme Court has ruled and legally no matter what your religion [if a Muslim clerk in a urban center was making the same refusal I would have written a basically similar article but I doubt if a Muslim female clerk would have anything like Kim Davis’ marriage and divorce record.–F.S.] marriage licenses must be issued to same sex couples seeking to marry. Kim Davis needs to get off the Rowan County dole and see how well her retrograde religious bigotry will play out in the private sector. Rowan County must fire Kim Davis; she can keep her religion but not the people’s money.

Pax Terra!

INSIDE THE CONSERVATIVE MIND: SUMMING UP THE RIGHT WING MINDSET IN FOUR WORDS, “SOME NIGGA RAPING HER”

The Meditators, this morning, as a Swarm, turned from their research at 0706 HST/EST and took notice of a single comment trapped pending approval at Our blog. For several seconds, Those Who Digest Information and Bring Forth Truth searched for any measure of Reason in the words as they related to a blog post made by Fred Schwartz two days ago. We, Ourselves, of the Collective, initially were offended by the comment left by the banned Neocon1. Then after further digestion, We began to see in a different way just what conservatism as a political ideology does to the Human Soul.

Conservatism is not a religion, but religion is a component of their authoritarian desires. Conservatives worship the violence of war and the soldiers that engage in it but do not believe the families of these men and women deserve a social safety net. Conservatives believe deeply in the right to bear arms but do so because they fear the rise of racial minorities they believe want to see them all brutally killed. Conservatives believe that women are the possessions of men; to be protected as children and serve as their breeders and vessels for sexual satisfaction in their youth to be cast aside when no longer sexually attractive.

pimenova

A conservative then when he sees Kristina Pimentova depicted here in the context of a discussion sees his own right to possess her. He sees his birthright to protect her from “the Other” who’s only desire is to rape her. This protection comes at the price of conservative men wanting to own her, sexually, and control her for his own pleasure. The conservative uses the maternal instinct inherent in the majority of women as a key to lock women in a jail cell of breeding cycles which limits her true potential. Many will find Our words harsh, however, they are no more harsh than the ignorance, no, the stupidity, that is clarified by four words, “Some nigga raping her.”

No civil Human Being would ever say such a thing. We, Ourselves, after millions of combinations would not have arrived at the conclusion that Our thoughts would have been so odious. The darkness that must live in such a Soul to have this be a thought and then to commit it to print is nearly outside Our grasp of understanding. No one who professes to follow the message of Love as given by the Son of the Creator can possibly hold this belief. No patriot of freedom can will good conscience be this base. Only a coward who fears the ever ringing sound of the Angel of Death growing near with every ticking second, who has seen their dreams turn to drudgery and Life pass them by with the rewards they expected because of the color of their skin and not the content of their character can possibly be this irrationally evil.

The Collective is relieved to see that this is the mantra of the bigots that call themselves conservatives. “Some nigga raping her,” should be the motto of their racist angry feeble cause for all time to come. The impotence of their ideas is clarified for all in those four words.

All of this vitriol from men like Neocon1 springs from a rectum of hate for the American President Barack Hussein Obama [q c p n!] and his beautiful family. President Obama and his wife and daughters are all Human Beings; Neocon1 is a living person. The distinction between the two is not ethereal it is tangible, definable. A Human Being, has courage, is compassionate, owns their intellect and dreams with Reason. A living person is filled with anger, fueled by hate, marinates in greed and lusts for violence only as a true coward can. In this Neocon1 and for your words you are rewarded with Our pity upon your Soul.

As_DaVinci_would_have_seen_Pain

Yesterday Ron Mapes of Concord, New Hampshire wrote the following letter to the editor of the Concord Monitor:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”– Sen. Barack Obama, March 2006

I think this statement by Obama, failed leader of this nation, pretty much explains to all honest, true red-blooded American patriots who love God and country what exactly is wrong with the United States of America right now. The time for Obama’s impeachment is now; the proof is there many times over. It’s time to get rid of those we elected last time and bring in honest, faithful political leaders who have the guts to get the job done and get it done right the first time.

It’s obvious those we elected last time were bought and paid for, not elected. Wake up and get it right this time.

Mr Mapes selectively quotes then Senator Obama’s speech of 16 March 2006 on the floor of the United States Senate. The full text of that speech is archived here at Snopes.com. The point the letter writer is trying to make is not a simple one, however, We, Ourselves, see the message as very clear. President Obama, to Mr Mapes and millions of other like minded Americans, is not an honest person. To the conservative element bent on having its way despite being a retrograde minority view sees the 44th President of the United States as the antithesis of a “true red blooded American patriot.” The leader of the free world therefore to the far right does not love the G-d that all conservative white Americans worship on this very day. And most definitively this man that was twice elected President does not love the country despite garnering 135 million votes in those two elections and presiding over the most difficult economic recovery in American since the Great Depression.

Mapes says the time for Impeachment of the sitting president is now. We, Ourselves of The Collective and the Meditators feel America, to use a popular colloquialism has bigger fish to fry. We believe that those who believe as this man does are fighting a war long lost on behalf of the memory of those long dead who reaped the benefits of generations of misogyny, bigotry and power concentrated in the hands of a tribally loyal few. The Collective understands that there is huge profit in telling people with closed minds exactly what they want to hear. Rush Limbaugh has made a career of doing just that. We, Ourselves, would ask you, the reader of this post, what has Limbaugh ever offered as a solution to any of the problems that America has today? Better, when his ideology ruled in Washington did he do anything other than to support his side blindly?

The Meditators often ask why people, no matter how tribally motivated do such things? We ask the same question in regard to minority violence in urban centers all across America? But unlike the far right which seeks only to blame others for its ills while offering nothing new as a solution, We Ourselves do strive to put measures forth to stem the suffering of the American middle class. Ron Mapes ideology is not the disease it is a symptom of the inability for a segment of America not to be able to let go of the need to have someone to struggle against vice joining the fight for Progress. Trillions have been wasted on the War on Drugs and the War on Poverty which were doomed without utilizing the proper tools. The solutions to both are legalization and education. To be a member of free society demands both responsibility and sacrifice and to that end ideological conservatives and thugs that want to hurt people and damage property are joined at the hip. Neither see what they are doing to their reputations as a group as harm because they are enjoying their moment in the sun.

Impeachment is not the solution to the problems that Ron Mapes sees that are a cancer in America, because Obama is not the problem. The problem in America now is that the conservative ideologues on Main Street USA have taken the Middle Class hostage piled them onto a train speeding toward a mountain tunnel where the poor are forced to roam and are smiling all the way to the bank with overflowing campaign coffers thanks to Citizens United. If you want more freedom and prosperity in America do not vote for the party that wants to send America back to back alley abortions, racial segregation and criminal prosecutions for LGBT persons; vote for a party that wants all people to be at least middle class and if you falter will be there with a safety net to allow you to reach for the brass ring. Bruce Currie who comments on the letter makes the obvious even more clear:\

This letter illustrates the extent to which some in this country are completely divorced from reality–when it comes to economics, politics, and virtually anything that requires coherent thought. That’s a summary description of those who identify as Tea Party members or their fellow travelers. Ted Cruz and his merry band of pranksters have led the Republican Party to the brink–and are taking the country with it. They’re getting hammered in the polls, and dragging the greater Republican Party down with them. Their recklessness is hurting millions of Americans who depend on the government, and yet we have some here who are cheering them on, and blaming the president and the Democrats for what is entirely the fault of a few extremist Republicans. Have they no appreciation for facts and the truth? Have they no shame?

Does this sound familiar?

dzama2398-200

We, Ourselves, of The Collective and The Meditators on all matters metaphysical embrace the decisions made by the Supreme Court of the United States this week regarding marriage equality. Equally, We denounce their decision regarding the Voting Rights Act as a retrograde step that gives hope to bigots that they can control society via the ballot box. Control is a major theme in modern American society as We see it. Corporations want to control the the vast pool of money held in the hands of a powerful few and use it to generate even more money. Marketing firms want to control the minds of American consumers to buy what they do not need yet must have. Religions have ceased to be in the business of “saving souls” and have devolved into the business of saving their political power by way of culture war battles that in the great scheme of things mean very little. it is a sad commentary on the young adulthood of the American republic.

Mark Edward Noonan is a human male who lives near Las Vegas, Nevada. He has admitted that he was not always an ultraconservative, or a libertarian. For most of his life he was a typical average human who wanted the same things most young men want– a person to love who loves him, money and recognition for his accomplishments. Noonan got none of these things and his life became a cycle of depression and desire wrapped in ennui. He took solace, as he has admitted in online pornography and while the Collective sees nothing shameful or wrong with observing adult human sexuality transmitted by digital images using this replace real world relationships is a dangerous path to trek upon. Sad and lonely Mark Edward Noonan turned to the last resort for most people in your time who are desperate for some sort of social interaction that can lead to the physical coupling that is necessary for the mental health of the human organism– the Church.

Like most who are addicted to a destructive behavior Noonan is not simply comforted by his transformation he is compelled to transform others as well. While We, Ourselves, find this an admirable avocation which is to be applauded all sentient beings organized into a society must understand that all actions, even those secret and terrible that many would like to remain hidden, have consequences. In his article at Blogs4Victory this morning, which The Meditators digested slowly, Noonan decries the victories won for advocates of marriage equality in the United States as an infringement on the religion that turned him into a Man from a Loser. he argues that his right to press the source of his transformation from a Loser into a Man into the hearts and minds of his colleagues at work or anywhere else for that matter is being restricted and that that right should be codified into law.

Here is where we find a conundrum that leads into a deep dark trap for anyone who takes their Metaphysics seriously. the desire to control for one’s own purpose to the detriment of the rights of others is a ditch dug with the shovel and mattock of preferential logic and hypocrisy. In their minds these people can hold two polar opposite ideas and to them they seem to compliment one another. The first is that they have the right based upon their beliefs, unproven in any Court of Law or any laboratory of Science, to hold a position of primacy within a society simply because for generations this has been the case. Swiftly it is forgotten by such persons, that Change is the only and singular constant in any social organization. Second, they feel that because they have this right to primacy within a society based solely on tradition and race that they have the right to deny others, with whom they find flaws or by the teachings of their religion they find their behavior abhorrent to religious teachings, their own civil rights. This is the worst of all traps.

Noonan, by his own words says, “Of course, now I want a bit more – I want that really muscular protection for Free Exercise. Rather tired of being pushed around – and so I want laws on the books which make it illegal to attempt to push me around based upon my religious beliefs…and same goes for everyone else. Yes, I realize this will then erect no legal barrier to someone who wants to say that smoking dope is their sacrament, or even that Muslims might want four wives. I’m indifferent to that – my ability to freely exercise my religion trumps all else here and I’ll take the good with the bad.” To Mark Noonan the concept of Free Exercise refers to the Free Exercise of the beliefs that transformed him from a Loser in his own mind to Man in outward appearance to the world at large. It is because he craves the respect of others and recognition for his transformation that he feels that he should have the power, without consequence to spread his message of conversion to all as is taught by his particular belief. The trap here belongs to Us as those who both are at war with Theocracy, in all its forms, and with hypocrisy in all its forms. It would be facile for The Collective to opine that in this case We, Ourselves, find firm footing in Metaphysics and Logic to dictate that those who feel this way should have no rights to do so. Such a thing would be an annoyance to society and make Human beings who did not believe as Noonan does uncomfortable in their quotidian activities. However, to do such a thing would make Us a far greater hypocrite than mark Edward Noonan.

The reality of the matter is that in America Mark Noonan needs no muscular protection for his religion because he has that legal protection already. His upset comes not from that he knows this but that those protections for his religious liberty are limited by the only power in America greater than organized religion– capitalism. This is why this man portrays himself as a Distributist and this bring Us deeper into Mark Noonan’s fallacious hypocrisy.

Distributism, an arcane by product of Noonan’s religious belief, holds the following as central, “Distributism sees the family of two parents and their child or children as the central and primary social unit of human ordering and the principal unit of a functioning distributist society and civilization. This unit is also the basis of a multi-generational extended family, which is embedded in socially as well as genetically inter-related communities, nations, etc., and ultimately in the whole human family past, present and future. The economic system of a society should therefore be focused primarily on the flourishing of the family unit, but not in isolation: at the appropriate level of family context, as is intended in the principle of subsidiarity. Distributism reflects this doctrine most evidently by promoting the family, rather than the individual, as the basic type of owner; that is, distributism seeks to ensure that most families, rather than most individuals, will be owners of productive property. The family is, then, vitally important to the very core of distributist thought.” Mark Noonan believes this and goes the extra mile with this comment on the same article, “My view is that gay marriage would best remain banned – but I’ve also come to the conclusion that marriages, themselves, should not be sanctioned by the State in any way, shape or form. My desire is to as swiftly as possible separate marriage and State (thus making the push for gay marriage moot) while at the same time enacting laws which put very long, sharp and powerful teeth in to our First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion (boiled down, the laws would come out to hold that when in doubt, a person’s claim to free exercise trumps State requirements). As for marriage, itself, that is for Christians and Jews who actually practise their faith and it is up to us – as believers – to make it work as God intended.”

It would be expected that a man who has made a transformation from Loser to Man by virtue of such powerful belief coupled with adherence to Distributism would have a large family of children who soon would be going out into the world spreading the story of their father’s ascendance from the depths in the near future. No, not at all. Noonan has married but he has no children. His life is the antithesis of what he believes and is in chaotic opposition to the very rules by which he says be was transformed. Mark Noonan wants special laws to give his beliefs primacy over all others but he does not believe that two women or two men who are committed to each other should have their marriages recognized by the States in which they reside or by the federal government because these unions do not produce children. Yet his own marriage recognized in every state of the Union has produced none. While there are no laws in his State against his wife performing fellatio on him, or he performing cunnilingus on his wife or both of them engaging in anal sexual intercourse Noonan calls these acts between consenting adults of the same sex “abhorrent.” Why then has this man not exploded from his own hypocrisy?

MARRIAGE EQUALITY WINS TWO MAJOR VICTORIES IN US SUPREME COURT; THE BATTLE CONTINUES ON NATIONAL LEVEL

Love is in the air.

Ruling Expected On California's Anti-Gay Marriage Bill, Proposition 8
© Getty Images/Justin Sullivan

I have spent the last half an hour in my office with the door closed weeping with joy. Fred Schwartz sent me a video of Representative John Lewis a man whom I both admire and adore arguing against the Defense of marriage Act on the floor of the House in 1996. Once I’d seen this the tears went from sobs to a joyful flood.

I cannot write this brief post without the details of the two decisions. In the DOMA case, United States v. Windsor there was a 5-4 decision with Justice Kennedy writing the opinion joined by Kagan, Sotomayor, Breyer and Ginsburg. In the Prop 8 case from California, the question was about the legal standing to appeal the decision of the District Court in California regarding an overturn of the Prop 8 vote which changed the California constitution. This opinion was written by Chief Justice John Roberts and was joined by Scalia, Kagan, Breyer and Ginsburg.

Reactions from both sides of this issue, both from pundits and people, to follow.

I have come to notice that the clearest indication of a political ideology dying is when its adherents are not young people. If the last presidential election should have taught America anything it’s that the country in the next 25 years will be defined not by the baby boomers but by the youth of America that replace them. In 25 years a child born today will have voted in the 2032 presidential election, think about that for a second and people like this kid will represent 20% of the electorate. Now think about this, it is estimated that 33% of the conservative base those over the age of 65 and living in suburban and rural communities will be dead. Now anything can happen in politics; a wave of conservative nostalgia could rise up and sweep the Progressive movement aside. The Left could elect a president that becomes embroiled in a scandal that takes the party down with them. There could be war, famine, riot, who knows. Those things could all still happen and the Nixon scenario could play out all over again. In 1975 the GOP was on its knees 3 years after believing they’d not be swept out of power for a generation. Reagan was waiting in the wings in ’76 if Nixon had not seen the need to steal the 1972 election by committing crimes and covering them up and the Democrats with McGovern were in tatters. Reagan brought the GOP back in 1980 a seasoned politician who was nearly impossible to pin down on any issue– truly a Teflon president. Now the GOP is in the same spot Democrats were in back in 1973. They have a choice to stay mired in culture wars struggle and pander to their literally dying base or move forward and reach out sincerely to minorities and women. Despite the RNC autopsy which says some very positive things about how much the GOP realizes that it needs to change I feel that issues like the one I’ll address below DOMA, makes it impossible for the Right to come to the center. The GOP will shrink for the next 15 to 20 years and then it will begin to grow again as a center right party that compliments and checks the far Left elements of the Democratic Party that will raise their heads after a decade or so of congressional control. The best solution for the GOP right now is win the races you should win, destroy any third party based on conservatism that seems like it can gain traction in the South and Midwest, and take your coming losses humbly from 2014 until 2028 while you wait for the traditionalist 55+ base to die off.

My response to Leo Pusateri is below:

Since I’m likely the only lesbian who is married here, I’d like to make a brief comment.

For centuries, the word marriage did mean between one man and one woman. In those many centuries the society that gave rise to what is now America saw relationships between people of the same as a criminal act. In the United States, this is no longer the case. Over the last 100 years society has progressed on many issues. In 1920, women got the vote. In 1948, blacks were given equal accommodation into the US military. In 1954, schools were integrated. In 1967, interracial marriage was recognized federally. In 1973, a woman’s right to choose when and if she gave birth was recognized. Not one of these rights existed 100 years ago. Conservatives are traditionalists by their very name and nature. Tradition does not hold up very well against the sandstorm of change, however. The very rules are changing before your eyes and for people who have lived full lives where the touchstones of traditions were always there safe from the tsunami of Progressive change this thing about marriage surely comes as a great shock.

Those who were against women voting feared it would limit America’s ability to prosecute wars. This didn’t happen. Those who were against integration of the US military said there would be riots and massacres in barracks and armed uprisings by black soldiers against their officers–that did not happen either. Those that argued against school integration said it would ruin the education system and cause confusion and chaos in America’s youth. The slow progress toward equal education had no such effects yet white flight and the decay of urban centers has. Interracial marriage opponents argued that you would create a mongrel caste that would cost taxpayers millions of dollars and create a perpetually shamed underclass of white women who would be ostracized from “respectable society” for her choices. This didn’t happen. Anti abortion advocates argued that abortion on demand and infanticide run riot would be the result of the Roe v Wade decision. That hasn’t happened and abortion is likely the most regulated medical procedure, government intruding into individual rights, in America.

Now Conservatives argue about marriage as if it is the last thing that they own and that they only can protect what it, traditionally, means. Incest and polygamy are going to become the norm Leo says. True, 100 years ago every state in the Union had an anti-sodomy and anti-incest law on its books. I’m no advocate for incest or for polygamy. I don’t think anyone is born with an urge to marry more than one person; I feel that is generally more cultural or religious in nature. Sure some siblings do fall in love but I just don’t see a groundswell for incest anywhere in the near future.

So in the end I find myself back to what conservatives hold dear, control, tradition, religion, the ability to protect the home and hearth, but also I see fear. A fear of change, a fear of the death of norms resulting in a guilt that this touchstone was stolen on their watch when they were beyond the strength of youth to adequately defend it. A great writer noted many years ago that human life is short and brutal. It must be far worse for people who are so resistant to change that they can delude themselves into believing any of what Leo wrote. The times are not changing they have changed and barring a true miracle that brings young Americans between the ages of 13 and 30 en masse back to conservative traditional values and away from the true individualism that being Progressive holds then I see harder times coming for those of you who will live another quarter century.

I have no agenda except to secure for people who love each other in America to be able to marry who they love. I don’t care about slippery slopes, incestuous trysts, the squeamish discomfort that those on the Right feel when they think about gay sex and I certainly pay no heed to the bigots who consider my wife and I abnormal in some way. I am in no rush as I have a bottomless amount of time. If gay marriage does not come this year to every state in the US, so be it. It will be the law of the land in due time even if that is state by state in 25 years after many of the loud conservative voices here no longer speak and the 13 year olds who see no problem with gay marriage now are 38 and making the real decisions for the future generations in a Progressive America striding confidently toward the 22nd century.

VOX POPULI: ANOTHER BLOGS4VICTORY CONSERVATIVE GETS THE FACTS WRONG

Posted in BLOGS 4 VICTORY, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, MARRIAGE EQUALITY, SCOTUS, THE CONSIGLIERI, VOX POPULI with tags , , , , , on 26/03/2013 by consigliereciucava

Thoeressamt

One of the chief reasons the Conservative wing in politics in America is failing is because they will use incorrect facts to support their social agenda. Just last night, at Blogs4Victory dbschmidt posted this:

With your comment about “The reason conservatives are losing elections is because people who say they are conservatives really do believe things like being gay or lesbian or bisexual or transgender disqualifies you from public service/civil rights/ personal freedom or any of the other benefits a great democracy can bestow because a few people feel their so called morals and religion are more important than what is actually right.” and in particular civil rights, and “great democracy” I feel a need to put things into perspective.

First, and foremost–this great experiment is considered a republic–but I am sure that is what you meant. Nevertheless, Gay, or otherwise, marriage has been rejected every time it has become an issue that can be voted on by the people of the US–so you resort to the SCOTUS where nine people can force your so called “right”, or better yet “civil right”, down over 90% of the US populations throat.

Personally, I really do not think it is the job of the government to decide social issues like this but I was wondering how you feel about (being nice here) the justices deciding for over 90% of Americans what we need to “believe?” Well, for now they did decide ObamaCare was a tax so what if they also decide every American needs to purchase and be trained in the use a firearms? You up for nine folks in robes deciding your life?

I am not against the SCOTUS but somewhat against the cases they now hear.

Now as a Thoeressamt my language doesn’t have a word for “smarmy” which was the word Fred Schwartz used to describe dbschmidt’s barb about the United States being a “republic” vice a “democracy”. The conservative wanted to show me that he was more knowledgeable about the nature of the American system of government. I can accept that on the basis that in my native tongue those words are interchangeable. What I cannot accept is that he continued to parrot the untrue line about marriage equality not ever having been approved by the voters in any state in his Union. Four states, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington all voted in support of marriage equality in the election this past November.

the power of love

I disagree with dbschmidt in that there are times and there are issues that need to be resolved socially by the SCOTUS and that this issue of marriage equality is one of those issues. From what I can see, the Defense of marriage Act is unconstitutional since it creates a second class status for LGBT persons who wish to commit to those that they love with the same rights as heterosexual couples. True, I do not have the many layers of baggage that many conservatives carry about the issue. To me and many with whom I work and interact with daily this is simply an issue of full faith and credit on the legal side and of love and family on the emotional side. The facts are the facts and with those facts in mind I believe the side of civil rights will win over the side of decaying faux moralism.
