  HE STILL TALKING?

Santorum Reveals Super Secret Plan To Protect Christians And Zygotes From Homos

Failing GOP Presidential candidate Dick Santorum utters so much anti-gay bullsh that we just ignore most of what he says. But now he’s stating that God’s Old Testament laws should trump 21st century laws, especially when it comes to denying tax benefits to legally married gay families and forbidding rape victims from aborting their un-asked for children. He’s even got a nifty 16-point plan to take us back to the B.C. era!

Jennifer Rubin from The Washington Post previews the nuttier points from the 16-point policy speech Santorum is expected to deliver tonight in Iowa:

- Calling on Congress to abolish the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals;

- Advocating for a personhood amendment to the Constitution;

- Calling on Congress to reinstitute the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy; and

- Finally, he will pledge to defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court.

Yeah, we should totally start kicking well-trained Arabic linguists out of the military again and defining a person as a fertilized zygote no more than 0.0000001 an inch in diameter. And hopefully Santorum will extend this whole “god’s law” thing to outlawing divorce, stoning widows who try to remarry, killing those who eat shellfish and ostracizing anyone who dares to work on Saturdays.

If we can only follow these simple moral laws, God will probably fix the economy for us.

      At this point, Mr. Frothy Mix has no credibility, few followers, and no chance of being elected to anything. The man has shot his wad, so to speak, when it comes to politics and the sooner he fades from the scene, the better for us all – including him. There surely must be some sector in the business world that is willing to give a job to this creature. He could sell shoes, or collect garbage – really learn how the other half lives.

      Jennifer Rubin (according to the link QUEERTY provided) is a right-wing blogger. Whether the “policy” is fact or wishful thinking on Jennifer’s part is not clear as the article appeared before Santorum’s speech. Regardless, the video link raised some questions regarding the audience – you could hear some mutterings of approval that made it sound more like some sort of “revival” meeting filled with “holy rollers”, so the natural question is “where was the video made?” Was this a general audience or session in an evangelical church?

      Does anyone really think he’s the only one in the GOP and not the only candidate running for office who thinks as he does?

      Frothy loves it when Catholics lavish him with awards and honoraria, so he’ll keep bringing the theocratic stupid.

      It’s a living.

      He represents the 1%, not the 99%. He is just another arrogant wealthy powermonger with nothing in common with the average American and won’t admit publicly he just wants power to keep screwing over the average American. How about he actually uphold the First Amendment and stop trying to force his version of religion onto everyone else?

      Here’s hoping Santorum stays in the race. Let me explain… the more far right candidates who remain in the republican primaries, the more diluted the votes will be for Bachman, Perry, Cain, etc. Which may mean that Romney has a chance at nomination. Romney will most likely lose to Obama because the Evangelical/Far Right voters will stay home. Evangelicals will not vote for a flip floppin’ Mormon who is damned to hell for believing that crazy Brigham Young crap. We need to hope that John Huntsman drops out. Although, more and more republican contenders seem to be a little on the crazy side with a few skeletons in the closet.

      Is Santorum (in)dependantly wealthy? Does he have a job? Who is supporting his wife and children while he “runs” for the republican nomination? Follow the money.

      Till the end of my days I will agree with all gay folks that we deserve a decency far beyond what we have ever been accorded. I’m a 53 year old gay man who has listened to this crud since I was 15 years old. On gayness, I am your ally in everything gay.

      But our being gay has nothing to do with any other subject under the sun.

      When it comes to economics, I turn to my experience with my relatives in Prague – (I’m sure I have an FBI/CIA file since I have been writing to my relatives, in Czech, since I was, um, 15 years old. “Chcete u?it?” “Do you want to learn?”) They lived through Nazi and Communist times; my four grandparents escaped the Austrian Catholic monarchy to come to this country — and we made our money — and never have you met such a vociferous opponent of socialism as I am.

      Ergo, don’t try to pin gay stuff to Democrats or Republicans, or economics, socialism or capitalism, occupying or tea party. We are a thing apart. Want to argue gay stuff? I agree, we’re the most wonderful people on earth. Want to argue economics? Well, then, let us see where you stand, and I shall go from there. But neither Democrats or Republicans have shown me much love in my life. Not nearly anything like my family here or there have, that’s for sure.

      Rick Santorum is crazy as a socialist is crazy – they just argue from different old books from a continent we no longer are on.

      You’ve got to love Republicans.

      “Starve the poor! Bomb cities overseas! Blow up schools and hospitals in Iraq! Support the death penalty, even for people exonerated by DNA evidence! Make gun ownership mandatory!”

      “Hey, wait, we don’t respect life enough! I know, this law to declare eggs and sperm to be equal to walking, talking human beings should fix that! Now, what are we going to do about all these funny-looking people who talk funny? Oh, they’re probably terrorists. Torture them in Guantanamo!”

      I’ll be damned if I can even make sense of what his statements are supposed to mean. Outside of brainwashing clinics, what does his word salad mean to the rest of us? Does he even know, or care? It seems highly doubtful on either charge. Phoning in American destruction as a career has never been so easy, and he even manages to make it seem arduous.

      So much for being “pro-Constitution.” Those 9th Circuit Court of Appeals judges are Article III judges (named after Article III of the Constitution from where they derive their authority). They were all appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate and they hold their offices *for life.*

      You can abolish the 9th Circuit, but you can’t kick all those liberal judges off the bench. The best you could do is just expand the 8th Circuit to cover the geographical region of what is now served by the 9th Circuit. In which case you could risk that the precedent set in the 9th Circuit could be binding in the 8th, but also vice versa, and will just lead to more confusion.

      This is a perfect example of the GOP now.

      You don’t like the decisions made by the electorate or the courts? Well then abolish the court and overturn what the voters have done.

      They are the most anti-American folks out there. They do not support our Constitution or the citizens.
