Plenty Of Nonsense In September

I speaking of the "conservatives", of course. They're gonna pull out all of the gay bashing stops they can. Last week I posted on the intimidation from the Mayor of Round Rock on a local business owner. Now we know how conservatives are all for keeping the government out of people's lives, especially business' lives, right? Not only are these people in your business but they're in your "business". If you know what I mean? The Democrats in Williamson County are taking action:
First Meet up is scheduled for Thursday, September 29th:

Mesa Rosa
15515 FM 620
Austin, TX 78717
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
512-733-6611

Dinner and Drinks optional.

We are preparing and gathering to ensure victory against Proposition #2 in Williamson County. If Mayor Maxwell did not make you happy with his comments, help place your anger with us in preventing the state from continued unnecessary, dangerous attacks on our Constitution and Texas Families.

The Williamson County Democratic Party officially endorsed it opposition to Prop. #2 at our August meeting. R.S.V.P by Tuesday Sept 27th.

I believe that when the right wing rammed this through the legislature they didn't expect to be challenged on this much less vigorously. I've gone back to a comment by Rep. Garnett Coleman on school finance over and over again but it holds for anything, "It's hard to pass bad public policy". This is bad public policy and you can tell by the way they are attacking NoNonsenseInNovember, by resorting to lies and scare tactics and making stuff up. They're starting to sound desperate. Busing in voters and stuffing ballot boxes that sounds alot like the pot calling the kettle black to me.

Pink Dome also has this about the governor and business' involvement in this. This is nothing but red meat for the wing-nuts. Or as Chris Bell said:
That being said, putting a ban on same-sex marriage into the state constitution is a solution in search of a problem. The state law defining marriage is already on the books and is facing no legal challenge and no real threat of being overturned by the Texas Supreme Court. The proposed amendment will have no practical effect one way or another on the institution of marriage in Texas. This constitutional amendment is completely unnecessary and designed not to improve our state in any way but rather to tear people apart.
What a sham and waste this is.
