Lauara Bush on Larry King Live May 13, 2010 discusses two of the most controversial and divisive issues in America, and will likely surprise most conservatives:
On Gay Marriage:
I think that we ought to definitely look at it and debate it. I think there are a lot of people who have trouble coming to terms with that because they see marriage as traditionally between a man and a women. But I also know that when couples are committed to each other and love each other they ought to have the same sort of right that everyone has.
I think it’s important that it remain legal, because I think it’s important for people for medical reasons and other reasons.
Watch the Interview:
There areÂ moreÂ important issues then gay marriage and abortion. We have a $12.9 trillion debt,$117 trillion in unfundedÂ liabilities, we have 48 states going broke in two years,a collapsing currency,alt-a,option arm and commercial real estate resets next year. Pensions (private and public) underfunded at $3.2 trillion. It is too much, we cannot lets issues like these Â make the tea party wonder away fromÂ auditingÂ the fed,protecting our gun rights.
Solution: stay out of other people’s business. Of course she is pro-choice, so should every free American be. It is a woman’s CHOICE.
The gov’t can not force an abortion or force a pregnancy.
Gay marriage is about all people being free to marry the person they love. Gov’t can’t tell you who to marry or not marry between consenting adults.
It’s easy – these two things are non-issues. The only controversy is folks in the tea party trying to control people but you/they don’t have that right.
Just for those of you that don’t know it already the entire Bush clanÂ have aÂ 100,000 acre hideout in Paraguay guarded by American troops, complete with a leased ParaguanÂ military airbase.Â Â
The Bushes will be one of the first ones to leave the United States when the U.S. government under Barack Obama collapses.Â Â
See link below.
Stay tuned.Â Laura’s nextÂ CNN interview will come live from Paraguays’ capitalÂ of Asuncion when the Bushes abandon America.Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
The former First Lady confuses privilege, what the government confers, with rights, what we have already.
In the USA, marriage is about privilege in the USA. Â All government laws of privilege arise from marital status.
Gay marriage is about MONEY not love.
Gays agitate for marriage because they want spousal survivor death benefits from Social Security and because they want implied power of attorney over life and death decisions under emergency.
Before ObamaCare became law, gays agitated to force employers to carry partners on medical insurance.
Comments….Many Republicans and libertariansÂ say gay marriage is ok.Â Neither party can be trusted anymore!!Â Many have quit voting permanently over the last few decades because of scandals and wishy washy (two faced) crooked politicians on the local, state and federal level.Â Those who were republican years ago, then went libertarian later, gave up on these party’s!
Laura Bush and Michelle Obama, two useless peas in the same pod.Â
She’s Methodist and doesn’t know her Bible….Â What do you expect!
What the gays do has no impact on any of your lives whatsoever. Â None of them is going to ask YOU to be the best man at their wedding, or even to get married to them. Â You are being duped into getting all riled up about the gays, or the half-assed terror attempt, or abortion, so that you won’t notice what’s REALLY BEEN GOING ON UNDER BOTH PARTIES SINCE 1970!!!!!!! Â You’re blind.
Re gay marriage – a very simple solution that SHOULD make everyone happy…
Get the government completely OUT OF MARRIAGE.
– Simplify the tax code so marital status is irrelevant
– Simplify intestacy laws so marital status is irrelevant (you can still have a will)
Â – ELIMINATE ALL “AUTOMATIC” COMMUNITY PROPERTY RIGHTS (yep, I said it…of courseÂ people would still be free to draft “pre-marital” contracts that would provide a community property-like relationship, regardless of sex)
In all seriousness, can someone tell meÂ why this is not suggested more often? (i.e., not suggested at all????)
Abortion is only controversial because you think you have a say in it. You don’t. Same goes for marriage between two adults. This is America.
Abortion is a right. Abortion is legal. Abortion is NONE OF YOUR GODDAMNED BUSINESS so shut the hell up, respect women the way you don’t want government to interfere in your economics or body – respect that women don’t want or accept that interference either. We are smart enough to make our own decisions, so don’t question our integrity or intelligence. We have been having abortions for 4000 years, because it’s not the big scary monster republicans and religions that suppress women (how many female heads of church are there??) make it out to be.
Back off. Respect our rights. Mind your own business. And if you’re curious about abortion, ask questions and listen.
Do you ask the government if you can marry your spouse? No? Neither should gay folks. If you have issues with that, examine the prejudice YOU carry around. All people are free to live as they please. Your comfort level extends to your body alone. And their comfort level extends to their body. Respect it.
