Funny, I’m not LaughinG

In Humorous ‘ban’ makes serious point

The old saying “You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar” got a new twist last week from Ohio state Sen. Bob Hagan. The Youngstown Democrat, who’s been known to pull a prank or two, spoofed his colleagues by issuing a “request for co-sponsors” for a fictional piece of legislation:

The Republican Adoption Ban of 2006.

That’s right. Hagan proposed a state law to forbid registered Republicans from adopting children or being foster parents.

The bogus “ban,” of course, was meant as a pointed response to House Bill 515, sponsored by Rep. Ron Hood, R-Ashville – and co-sponsored by Cincinnati-area Reps. Tom Brinkman and Danny Bubp – which would prohibit adoptive or foster children from being placed “in the private residence of a homosexual, bisexual, or transgender person.”

Hagan cited what he called “credible research” that children in GOP households are “more at risk for developing emotional problems, social stigmas, inflated egos, an alarming lack of tolerance for others they deem different than themselves and an air of overconfidence to mask their insecurities.”

…perhaps Hagan’s modest proposal gave some folks a taste, however fleeting, of what it would be like to be labeled as a class somehow incapable, unworthy or unacceptable.

So um…yet another politician fancying himself as a latter-day shaman or oracle trying to make Republicans, homosexuals, and transgendered folk morally and psychologically equivalent?

Oh yes, now that I’ve pondered it,I’ve found that I have warmed to the idea that “WE are all the same.”..NOT.
Hagan can keep his “more-secular-than-thou image” and continue to attempt to purge us all of moral and (religious)..yes, I said “religious”..gasp! elements.

Truly, if society ever indulged his warp fantasy…the laugh would be on him.
Come to think of would sound more like a “cry.”

    Now, as far as this crapheadded Hagan-Doz guy… he can kiss my Republican tookus! I should say, I’d think poor kids of liberals would be the most warped, since they get coddled with lib lunacy not only at school but at home as well. And then… they must face the Real World. Where’s their reality check? Great post.

    BTW Thanks for linkie, hon! DL really knocked one outta da park with that post.
