My Kind of Activism
Just purchased a Barack O'Brownie and two Baracholate chip cookies at a Los Feliz fundraiser and am extremely pleased with myself. I may not march, or register voters, or make online contributions, or work a phone bank, but I WILL be politically conscious when it comes to dessert. And if Obama wins, I know it will have something to do with driving past 7/11, foregoing a pint of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Brownie ice cream, and choosing instead a Barack O'brownie. When Barack said "Si se come", I listened.
If anyone knows of a bake sale for the No on 8 campaign, please let me know as I will proudly support marriage equality if I can get a cupcake out of it.
Seriously, though, if you live in California, vote no on Proposition 8, even if you're anti gay marriage and/or anti-gay. Here's why. Californians should create laws for Californians. Prop 8 is being funded in large part by Mormans in Utah. And let me say, I have nothing against them. Some of my dullest friends are Mormon. But I'm reminded of that old saying, "First they come for gay marriage, and then they come for caffeine." If Prop 8 passes, it will only embolden the Mormons. They'll get cocky, and start bankrolling a slew of propositions. Next thing you know, they'll outlaw alcohol, normal underwear and FUN. They will not rest until the most exciting thing to do in this state is go to church.
They. Must. Be. Stopped.
