Obama signed the stupid piece of legislation this week. Figured I should mention it. To underscore how inane and childish this legislation is — it is named the Matthew Shepard/James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Law.
Would Byrd’s name be attached if George W. Bush hadn’t been the Governor of Texas? Would this new law have punished Byrd’s murderers any more than they were? No — two were sentenced to death, the other will spend the rest of his life in jail.
Stupid, childish, petty Democrats run our nation. Meanwhile, Congressional Democrats and Obama oppose things like free-market healthcare reform, free-market social security reforms, and tax reforms that would actually do something for gay families. And the Islamist Pogrom of Gays? Democrats are silent.
Never forget that, folks. But when you murder someone this weekend, just make sure you don’t yell nasty things at them first.
