Have you ever seen those funny Internet memes with pictures of people throwing their computers out of a window in obvious frustration or disgust, and captioned with, “That’s enough Internet for today?” Typically, a blog or thread commenter will post such a thing in response to a news article or opinion piece that strikes him as completely ludicrous.
Well, I ran across something on the Internet (it’s not just on the Internet, but from where else do we get info these days?) today that basically drove me to such a moment. It seems that over a couple of dozen Democrat congresspeople have come together in a clearly-worthwhile effort to scratch the words “husband” and “wife” from federal law.
The bill behind which they’re all assembling is called “The Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act,” and its architect is Rep. Lois Capps (D-CA). According to Capps, the Act “recognizes that the words in our laws have meaning and can continue to reflect prejudice and discrimination even when rendered by our highest courts.” In other words, the very terms “husband” and “wife” are inherently discriminatory, and the faster we can make them vanish, the better served we’ll all be.
And so it continues…the inmates vigorously seeking to take over the asylum. Make no mistake…this once-great nation is, in fact, fast becoming a looney bin, and while we can bemoan that reality, we should be even angrier at ourselves for letting the unhinged progressives co-opt the social narrative as they have.
