That's a real disaster. Ever try to call her office for any help? Imagine that response, multiplied by the entire state.

There is simply nothing heroic going on in all of this. It's not only not historic, it's tragic.

And you don't know who I am, so don't try to find me, gay Hillcrest hit squad. I still have freedom of speech despite all your efforts.

So, you've decreed it "tragic".

Why?

To point out a side of life that can be a source humor and warn many people about the choices we make in our course upon the crazy planet we call home.

It's the end of family as we know it. All the childhood memories that we cherish, gone. The California that we had in our youth is gone now. What these new people will replace it with is something that will be unrecognizable.

Now, if it ain't gay, it ain't got no say. Across the entire state. What they've done with the legal system in San Diego, the closed municipal court, the new federal and state courts, are now home to new meaningless laws and courts that lack any system of justice that we (and our parents before us) called life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

All the new hate crime laws are protecting people that think nothing of trampling our rights into the mud. We simply have no protections against them any longer, they can speak to us as they wish, they can threaten us to their heart's content. If we respond to these insults as they should be, we're guilty of hate crimes. It's farcical.

I'm not speaking mindlessly. If these new progressives believe that you don't agree with their logic, they force celibacy upon you so that you don't raise any more of your ilk, thereby guaranteeing that the next generation won't know what heterosexual marriage was. It's the gay way or no way, go all the way around.

Try voicing a complaint to our local representatives that doesn't touch on gay rights. You get no response, no assistance, and will probably be mocked by that rep's office staff. Ron Roberts isn't any better, he's been taking up valuable office space himself for decades now, but it just gets worse the farther up you go.

We have no freedom now. That's gay rights. I'm from California, and that's the problem, in a way. I honestly believe that everyone has their own place, their own right to live as they wish as long as it doesn't intrude upon his or her neighbor's space. But these out-of-state homosexuals that have migrated West with their beliefs aren't Californians, they don't have that courtesy. It's not respect; when someone demands respect it isn't tolerance that's wished, it's fear. It's not "Respect me!," rather it's "Fear me!" That's not civil liberties, that's the opposite.

And, they've found us easy prey.

It is tragic, and don't try to find me, Hillcrest.

I love to hear ignorant bigots whine hysterically over it becoming harder for them to act out their anti lgbt hatred in public venues.

Hey cretin, it's not about "not gay" having no say, it's about "homophobes" having no say.

Also, those hate crimes enhancements are not new. They are new federally insofar as including sexual orientation. But it would be a fair trade to remove those new, federal protections covering sexual orientation if we could get rid of all the legal protections on the basis of religion.

Because you were saying (lying) how you object to hate crimes enhancements.
