Much Ado About Nothing

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Friday that he would fight an initiative to amend the California Constitution to ban gay marriage if it qualifies for the November ballot.
“I will always be there to fight against that,” Schwarzenegger said, prompting loud cheers and a standing ovation from about 200 people at the annual convention of the Log Cabin Republicans, the nation’s largest gay Republican group.
“Gay Republican Group” Is that like “Conservative Environmentalist?” Or “Liberal Gun Owners?” Why would a “Gay Republican Group” be in favor of gay marriage? Seriously. Unless they’re not really “Republicans.”
Gay marriage is a purely symbolic gesture for politicians to score points with the left. It really means nothing. Just about any “rights” that you get as a spouse can be achieved with very little effort through agreements that can be made with a lawyer. Those that can’t, can certainly be “worked around.” Anything past that is just crying for the sake of crying. This is the most meaningless, bullshit empty rhetoric waste of time in American politics today.
Nothing proves what a spoiled, whiney bitch of a country we’ve become, more than hand wringing over gay marriage. Freedom and Liberty does not mean everyone always gets everything they think they should always get all the time. Some people have to suck it up, and deal. Not being able to technically marry your boyfiend or girlfriend is not the fucking end of the world.
There’s much more serious shit happening assholes, get over yourselves.
