All those that know me, hate me, love me, or are just indifferent know that I have been trying to become more congruent in my life. And I think that is why the election in South Dakota is more disturbing than reassuring. Eventhough the draconian anti-abortion law was struck down (yeah!!!!!!), medical marijuana and gay marraige was banned.
After thinking it over, it sends the same message that I find so disturbing.........pick on them, not me. Because somewhere around 90% of the population has the opportunity or ability to procreate, but 90% of the population will not know someone with such dibilitating pain or the treatment for their disease that the only way they can stay functional and pain free is to indulge in some cannibis sativa, or know two people that are in love with each other that they will never separate but can never be together (think Ladyhawk with better hair).
At the end of the day, to steal blatantly from Carlos Mencia, this election was for personality liberty what 9/11 was for the Blacks and Hispanics of this country. Laquisha, Tyrone, Manuel, and Frida all ran up to Ahmed and said, "Tag, your it motherfucker!!!" For now the abortion issue is dead (no pun intended), now it is on to ensuring liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all, so Ahmed, you better find someone new to tag.
