Here it is…
Now, let’s tear this to pieces.
One Democrat tried banning soda. He didn’t even try banning it. He tried limiting the amount of it you could buy at a time. The rest of us found that stupid. It is a thing of the past.
But when it comes to drugs and marriage equality, this is not the first time I’ve heard someone try to compare it to banning guns. There’s a thing called legal standing. If you have no standing to bring the law into something, because it does not affect you at all, then you will be thrown out of court.
And that’s marriage equality’s whole point. It doesn’t affect anybody else for gays to have equal rights. At all. Period. But you easily can affect my life with your gun.
I can’t kill you by gay marrying you in the face, and I can’t kill you by smoking a joint in your chest, so it’s hardly fair to put those two things on equal par with guns.
Oh, and as for guns… nobody’s trying to ban them either. We’ve never had an actual ban on guns. People have tried to tell me there was one, but at no point did the federal government put a ban on all guns. All attempts have been easily circumvented.
So one more attempt to make the two parties the same ends up being nothing more than the same bullshit. Democrats still fair better even after this attempt, and by a margin so fucking wide it’s no fucking contest.
