Proposition Hate!

November 11, 2008

No matter what you think about gay rights, here at nonpretentious we love Arnold.

Fine, maybe some of us think Arnold shines as a [Republican] politician whereas others of us prefer to view his shininess on the big screen in badass action flicks.  

Whether your preferences are more in line with column a or b (or, if you find yourself dabbling a little bit in each column),  you have to admit that Proposition 8 will create a constitutional conundrum in the state of California.  I say you have to admit because, hell, a scholar of constitutional law in the Golden State says so.  I listen to scholars.  You should too.

Plus, hark back to ye’ olde school yard lessons:  in rocks, paper, scissors, no one ever wants to have one round go to rocks (over scissors), one round go to paper (over rocks), and one round go to scissors (over paper).  It’s simply too much.

*update: previous version called California the Sunshine State.   The correct nickname for this state is the Golden State.  Florida is the Sunshine State. Sorry.  States that have Disney microcosms all look the same to me, your humble contributor.

    I have only lived here a few years, but California is the Golden State. The Sunshine State is Florida.

    Maybe someone can explain this to me: How, why, is Arnie a republican when it seems he goes against the party platform on nearly every major issue?

    Arnie is a Republican because when he first came to the US in the late 60′s, he thought that Barry Goldwater’s platform was fairly similar to the socialist Austria that he had just left. He had seen how that had worked out for Austria and didn’t like the results.

    Needless to say, the Republican party of 2008 isn’t the Republican party of 1968; the party’s changed significantly even in the last 20 years.

    Yes, it’s changed enormously. Thanks for the info.
