What He Said

Hey, what happened to prefacing every entry involving Olbermann with "This guy is an arrogant asshole"?

My God, this is powerful, on my list of the greatest commentaries ever spoken…I am almost speechless…I don’t know what else to say, really, I don’t.

Dammit, I can't believe I missed this when it went up.

While I side with Olbermann, I disagree with most of his reasoning. Prop 8 isn't wrong because of "the heart" or because gay marriage is noble or because people have suffered, it's wrong because it's nobody else's business. This law passed because of an appeal to feelings about something, why would you appeal to feelings again to unpass it? Logic dictates that if you enjoy your freedom then you allow other people to enjoy theirs as fully as you can without incurring personal injury or loss so that they will hopefully treat you the same. THAT's why you don't pass rubbish like Prop 8.

Also, just to get on my small government soapbox again, none of this would be an issue if we didn't have a stupid government overstepping its bounds and making marriage a special economic and political entity with subsidies and/or penalties. As far as I'm concerned, if you say you're married you are and that should be the end of it.
