Hi. I'm trying to think of another description to put here. Any ideas? I'll try again at 420.

Beverly Perdue is a Jack Ass

Governor Beverly Perdue of North Carolina is not going to be elected again. That's because she just chastised her own state for voting their own consciences regarding gay marriage.

How do you do that? How do you say to people, "You are wrong and I am going to look good by telling you how wrong you are."

You don't have to agree with people, you simply shake hands and walk away agreeing to disagree.

Wouldn't it be nice if our leaders would lead with the notion that Americans are a diverse people with the freedom of expression? It's one thing to be against gay marriage, it's something completely different when someone is against the idea that Americans are allowed the freedom of their own consciences. The latter is a far more onerous danger to gay people...and anyone else who might be considered out of the mainstream.

I've come to the conclusion the only people who seem to be out of the mainstream are our elected officials. My understanding was they were there, in their respective positions to represent their peeps-that'd be you and me, the people that actually elected them. Or at least supposedly elected them.

That was back in my younger (dumber) more idealistic days.

Yeah, I hear ya. I used to think that being an elected official was something akin to public service. What a joke! If they were serving the public, they'd have a real job and serve the public for a stint, not as a career. Having jobs would make them something they should be, Americans. We seriously need term limits. After Washington left the presidency, he went back to Mount Vernon to be a gentleman farmer, he didn't, nor did he foresee, the notion of politics as a career. Our presidents spend their entire first term running for election to a second term. Our legislature spend ALL their time running for re-election. This will be our downfall...I assure you.
