14th Amendment, the Bane of Conservatives
Today, Tom Emmer, GOP Gubernatorial candidate for the state of MN has proposed a law to allow the state to “opt out” of any federal law they feel cramps their style.
Citizens of Minnesota are sovereign individuals, subject to Minnesota law and immune from any federal laws that exceed the federal government’s enumerated constitutional powers. A federal law does not apply in Minnesota unless that law is approved by a two-thirds vote of the members of each house of the legislature and is signed by the governor. Before voting to approve a federal law, each legislator must individually affirm that the legislator has read the federal law and understands it.
If not for the federal government and the 14th Amendment, segragation would still be predominant in many states. And Tom Emmer wants to adopt a “we only follow the laws we feel like” clause for one reason, his fear of gay marriage. He, and hordes of homophobic religionists are afraid that if gay men or women are allowed to marry their partners, it will piss off their god, a notorious homophobe, and the world will come to an end.
Well, I for one, think Tom Emmer is disgusting looking, and the thought of him fucking anything is an abomination in my eyes. In fact, a divine (as far as I know) revelation told me that quite succinctly. And, I believe I’ll draft up a bill kindly suggesting that the state of MN should not recognize any marriage in which one or more of the partners is Tom Emmer. I will assert, without any evidence of course, that it could be potentially damaging to young children to see that fat drunk slob walking around knowing that he occasionally sticks his gelatinous dick in anything, let alone anything living.
