Told ya

On the Tennessee’s new Republican majority, I said a bit back that:

If you guys get in there and start passing every socially conservative wish list item that causes turgid little nubbins among the god squad (who shouldnít be getting turgid little nubbins anyway because thatís a sin, I hear), itís going to be a short two years.

I’d like to say they got the message. But they did not: The bill to ban unmarried people from adopting children is here, submitted today by Senator Paul Stanley.

    The idea that Republicans lost because they were too conservative on social issues is false.

    The Republicans lost because they were too conservative on social issues and too liberal on fiscal ones.

    Reagan was socially conservative, but he at least tried to reign in the growth of government.

    Bush was socially conservative, but he spent money like it was going out of style. That’s the key difference.

    This is why state legislatures shouldn’t meet for every 3 years or so. There are enough laws on the books, thank you very much. It just gives them time and opportunity to do stupid shit like this.

    If something comes up, they can have an emergency session, but i doubt they’ll even need that.

    I am pretty sure stuff like this is not going to kill the Republican party. Advocating for socially liberal things is what got Republicans back-handed in the last election. And the impending raping we are all going to take with the stimulus bill.

    I do not see any problems with putting foster children in the most advantageous family situation there is.

    Why is it that folks are choosing to remain single? How much of that “free” government money plays into the equation?

    They need to quit treating symptoms and get back to the damn disease of government. I suppose there’s not enough money and power in that.
