Oh, Beautiful, Let's Just All Shoot Each Other

Posted By on Thu, Aug 16, 2012 at 9:40 AM

On Wednesday morning, a man, allegedly Floyd Lee Corkins, walked into the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., and shot a security guard. The security guard, thankfully, was not killed.

This really makes me despair. I disagree, strongly and obviously, with the Family Research Council, and I find their constant whining about how they are not a hate group when they so obviously hate gay people to be really annoying. But you know, being a hateful whiner isn't punishable by death in this country. And working for a hateful whiner sure as hell isn't. We have a First Amendment right to be odious jackasses and to be met in return not with bullets or government censorship but with odious jackassery on the part of our opponents.

If you cannot agree to this very basic tenet of American culture, you should not leave your house. Seriously, we have some ground rules, which you can look up on the Internet and decide if you want to read them — it's like a EULA for the whole nation. If you, as the end user of this country, cannot abide by the rules, then either work to change the rules or don't participate.

Honestly, everyone, enough.
