This is Colleen Hanbusa's gift to her Democratic colleagues. Or was it a gift to Duke Aiona and the Republicans?

Had the bill passed this last session, as it very well could have had Hanabusa and Taniguchi honored promises they had made, civil unions would have started on that Jan 1 effective date, people would see the sky hadn't fallen. All but the most rabid would have adjusted and we could all be focussed on the economy for the 2010 elections.

Ah, but Hanabusa was able to demonstrate her gift of "leadership" and force her colleagues to deal with it in an election year.

Brilliant! Let's end her to Congress as a reward!

Sexual orientation is not a civil right. How do you fall in love with a man's hairy arse? How does that work?

You are correct.

Passing laws for homosexual couples is completely discriminatory.

Blacks didn't fight for civil rights for blacks only and tell the Mexicans and the Asians to go fight their own fight. Blacks fought for the civil rights of all people, including whites.

But this fight is just for one particular sexual deviancy.

If you want to make human unions a "rights" issue, then you must simply allow ALL unions between and number of adult humans who choose to create a union. Gays, lesbians, trios, communal groups, polygamous groups, etc.

That would be a "rights" bill.
