The Downside of the Democratic Wins

Here is a down note concerning the mid-term elections.

Note that 4 states, including Wisconsin (can you believe it) along with South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia have approved a gay marriage ban. As of this writing just before midnight Tuesday, results are still pending on similar measures in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, and South Dakota - all traditionally conservative states.

What a load of crap. Cheese heads in particular should bury their heads in cheddar shame.

It is still a sad truth that this country has a majority of self-righteous, meddlesome, pricks who glory in sticking their noses in other people's private lives. It is nobody's damn business who anyone chooses as a life partner.

Also, the initial result on a stem-cell research initiative in Missouri is going down to defeat. Save the blasocysts! Let the people die!

Another somewhat sobering note is that a number of the Dems voted into the House are, in effect, more or less republicans who wear blue. Many are anti-abortion, anti-gay, pro-gun, even pro-war conservatives. See http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061111/ap_on_go_co/southern_democrats. The upcoming Congressional term will not be a bed roses for liberal Dems. It will hardly be a sea change. Positions, particularly on social issues, will only be moved to the left incrementally.
