Fair is Fair

Hilzoy shares my own sentiments about the Wall Street bailout and the LOAN begrudgingly given to Chrysler and General Motors.

Honestly: what sense does it make to stick it to a bunch of auto
workers while letting the financial executives off scot-free? How can
Richard Shelby get all upset about the fact that some blue-collar
workers have, gasp, health care, and not about the fact that financial
executives, on whom we have spent a lot more money than the Big Three
ever asked for, get financial planners and chauffeurs? Just imagine the
furious oratory we might have heard had the UAW succeeded in
negotiating benefits like the ones people get at Goldman Sachs. (I'll
bet chauffeurs would help auto workers concentrate more on their jobs...)

Really?  How F'ed-up is all this nonsense spewed by the Southern Senators?

And, FAIR?  Tell me....Would a minister that belonged to an exclusive country club that excluded Blacks and Jews be invited to give an invocation at the Presidential Inauguration?  No.

Would a minister that espoused anti-Semite views be giving the Inaugural Invocation?  No.

Would a racist or sexist minister be invited to give the Inaugural Invocation?  Hell no.

Well golly gee, Rick Warren is a homophobe that preaches that my 19 1/2 year old relationship with Billy is akin to incest, polygamy, and pedophilia.  He preaches that I am an abomination before his god and should suffer now and in the next life for being who I am.  He preaches that his god's law is supreme and the American Constitution needs to be changed so all of America can live according to the rules Pastor Warren supports.

No fucking way....

Fair?  It seems that it is acceptable to bash gays and discriminate against them.  That is wrong on so many levels.

Alas, no one seems to care...
