Last Thought of the Night

Today, the Senate rejected a proposed bill that would have allowed people to carry concealed weapons from state to state. "The measure would have required" states to recognize concealed carry permits issued in other states. I wonder if the same people would vote to allow gay marriages to be recognized in other states if recognized in any other state. Yes, I know. I can stop wondering and go to sleep.

In truth, holders of concealed weapons permits can legally carry in most states. A Florida permit holder, for instance may carry in 29 states. Licensees of other states may enjoy wider privileges. The bill hardly deserves the hysteria it's generated, but hysteria is the medium of the day.

As to same sex marriages, if out of state same sex marriages were to be recognized in Florida, my marriage would be irreparably damaged by making it less sacred. I'm surprised you can't see that. Doesn't the First amendment say that congress gets to tell us what is sacred - just like that Fundamentalist Jefferson wanted it to?

Shssh Captain don't disturb his sleep! Crankyboy is actually Rahm Emanuel and he has much to be cranky about lately. He's dreaming up new things to tell the press to "educate" us with in the morning conference call.

There is no amendment banning them. As well, there IS an amendment promising all Americans the same rights. It's known as the 14th, and I quote: "No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
