Yeah, that’s my fear

Seen at Michael’s:

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) declared in a radio interview that same sex marriage is part of a socialist agenda to undermine “the foundations of individual rights and liberties.”

Yeah, they’re the ones doing that. It was totally the gays who passed roving wiretaps; mandated two flush toilets; made it a felony to import lobsters in bags and not boxes; eliminated my right to choose which light bulbs I can use; mandated that all my banking transactions be monitored; and said I needed a proctological exam to board an airplane. That was the gays alright and not boneheads whose names start with Rep.

    Without arguing against your assessment of Congress or saying that King’s views are correct, the latter isn’t necessarily precluded by the former.

  2. Stormy Dragon Says:

    When a Republican starts talking about individual rights and liberties, they’re basically just making a gang sign. The only purpose is to say specific phrases that identify them to other Republicans as a member of the tribe.

    Any conceptual meaning those phrases may have is purely coincidental, and the fact the Republican is uttering them shouldn’t be taken as evidence that they agree with those concepts (or have even though about them, really).

    In this day and age, why is the government concerned with anyone’s marriage? Anything you can do married you can do single and we have a lot of people in states that do not recognize commonwealth marriages having kids, raising families and living together.

    Perhaps instead of expanding the government’s views on marriage we should be getting the government out of the business of sponsoring religious concepts.

    Barny Frank is GAY!

    I rest my case!

    That guys conspiracy mongering is over the top, but why is it that the left seems so obsessed with maximizing freedom involving sexual behavior, but doesn’t seem to give a damn about property rights, RKBA, or even free speech in an increasing number of instances? IMHO, the left is at least as inconsistent as much of the right in individual liberties.

  6. NatefromOgden Says:

    JWilliams is on the right track. I think we need to get the .gov at every level out of the marrying business. I believe any 2 people, gay or straight should be required to get a civil union license that confers all those privileges that we currently confer to married people. Marriage should be a strictly religious service, performed by the clergy, if that particular flavor of church decides the couple qualifies. Just like baptism, confirmation, ordination and other religious rites, marriage should be held in the same manner.
    Problem solved.

    Let’s ask congress to declare all laws passed since 1960 to be null and void. Then we can start over and have another 50 years before the @$$ho!es screw it up this bad. I will probably be dead by then. Until then it’ll be “the good ol’ days” all over again. Think they’ll go along with it?

  8. Sigivald Says:

    He’s saying gay marriage is a socialist plot, not that socialism is a gay plot, no?

  9. Rivrdog Says:

    The Gentleman from Iowa is a perfect example of why the GOP will blow a perfect opportunity next year to take the government back from the Left.

    Someone needs to save Conservatism from the GOP.

  11. Dan Says:

    We need more steve kings out there.

  12. John H. Says:

    Dan – for what? Target practice?

  13. Brad Says:

    I live in Iowa. Fortunately, not in King’s district. Every state has that black sheep representative that is kinda crazy and that the state tries to hide from the public. Well, King is Iowa’s. Unfortunately, there’s no one of any value to replace him at the moment so we have to hope he stays quiet and out of the public eye…
