Utah man goes on hunger strike until his state stops allowing gay marriage. Oh yeah, that'll work.

Courtesy of Raw Story:  

A Utah man vows to go without food until the state stops issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. 

Trestin Meacham believes the state has the ability to “nullify” the recent decision allowing same-sex couples the right to marry. States, he believes, have the right to “nullify any unconstitutional action of the Federal Government,” and that this decision is “patently unconstitutional.” 

By his reckoning, states have unilateral authority to reject any decision made by the federal government, and cites as evidence a series of failed attempts to have this belief recognized in courts of law. 

Meacham remains undeterred. In a post on his public Facebook page flush with false humility, he writes that “I cannot stand by and do nothing while this evil takes root in my home. Some things in life are worth sacrificing one’s heath and even life if necessary. I am but a man, and do not have the money and power to make any noticeable influence in our corrupt system. Never the less, I can do something that people in power cannot ignore.” 

He claims that his opposition to same-sex marriage “has nothing to do with hatred of a group of people,” but on his blog, he is quick to note that the challenge to Judge Shelby’s decision will be “will be heard by Sonia Sotomayor, a known champion of the homosexual movement.”

On the down side if this guy thinks that skipping a few meals is going to convince gays to stop fighting for the right to marry he is fasting up the wrong tree.

On the other hand he has already lost 25 pounds and he looks Faaaabuloooous!

    Oh yeah, give Sarah Palin the idea that she can claim her radically emaciated state on a principled hunger strike for the poor persecuted patriot Christians with warrior bodies in flyover country who so love the America that Obama doesn't see as they do for First and Second Amendment liberties that Paul Revere warned us about there.

    A CBS reporter is saying that Aaron Schock, anti-gay Republican extraordinaire, has been caught by people with his male roommate, in a shower. And that he has also been seen in gay bars.

    See how the media protects hypocritical Republicans.

    1. I had never heard of this Aaron Schock guy until I read your comment, so I googled him.

      He was the youngest Illinois State Rep in history, and now he is a US rep. His private sector career was pretty brief. Kind of like Paul Ryan or Patrick McHenry.

      It is amazing to me how many conservatives go on and on about how government is the problem, yet spend much of their lives in government.

      UPDATE: Aaron Schock just locked down his Instagram account, as outing rumors swirl.

      Aaron Schock`s 7 gayest Instagram posts of 2013

      You see, Schock is really really really anti-gay:

      Schock voted against adding sexual orientation to the already-existing hate crimes law.

      Schock opposed the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

      Schock opposes the repeal of DOMA.

      Schock is against gay marriage; and

      Schock is for the Federal Marriage Amendment, which would add language to the US Constitution banning gay marriage and likely striking down every gay rights law and ordinance in the country.

      http://americablog.com/2014/01/7-gayest-aaron-schock-instagram-posts-2013.html

      here's a hypothetical: what if you know a certain GOP congressman, let's just say from Illinois, is gay... and you know this because one of your friends, a journalist for a reputable network, told you in no uncertain terms that he caught that GOP congressman and his male roommate in the shower... together. now they could have been good friends just trying to conserve water. but there's more. what if this congressman has also been caught by tmz cameras trolling gay bars. now what if you know that this very same guy, the darling of the gop, has also voted against repeal of don’t ask don’t tell, opposed the repeal of doma, is against gay marriage; and for the federal marriage amendment, which would add language to the us constitution banning gay marriage and would likely strike down every gay rights law and ordinance in the country?

      Are we still not allowed to out him?

    Thanks to so-called Liberals, suicide is no longer illegal in any of the States. Once upon a time, they could lock you up for not eating and force feed you. No more. So, if this guy wants to stop eating, he can look forward to looking like Sarah Palin very soon, turkey neck and all.

    Then again, I am not the biggest fan of conservatives in Utah and I think he might be sneaking in a snack when no one is looking. In other words, I don't believe a word he is saying.

    ‘Anonymous’ Leaves Special Message On White Supremacists’ Home Page

    ‘Anonymous’ has struck again. This time, the hacker group targeted a white nationalist website by placing an anti-hate message on their homepage.
    A white supremacist group got hacked by ‘Anonymous’ and found a special message from them.

    It was a normal Friday for white supremacists. They still hated everyone who wasn’t white and they still had an unaltered website known as Nationalist.Org to advertise their racism worldwide from their base in Mississippi. That is, until they visited their homepage that afternoon and saw THIS.

    The drumbeats are getting louder...

    Amid calls for the clemency of Edward Snowden, many questions remain about the 30-year-old's flight from America and asylum in Russia.

    One major unresolved issue is the relationship between "the most dangerous leaker in American history" and WikiLeaks, an organization with an admitted antagonism toward the U.S. and a cozy history with the Kremlin.

    Given WikiLeaks penchant for facilitating U.S. government leaks, its early involvement in the Snowden saga deserves scrutiny.

    http://www.businessinsider.com/edward-snowden-and-wikileaks-2014-1

    One gasps at Snowden’s megalomania and delusion. Is he a dupe, a tool, or astonishingly naïve?

    Why Snowden Won’t (and Shouldn’t) Get Clemency

    He went too far to be considered just a whistleblower.

    ...If that were all that Snowden had done, if his stolen trove of beyond-top-secret documents had dealt only with the NSA’s domestic surveillance, then some form of leniency might be worth discussing.

    But Snowden did much more than that. The documents that he gave the Washington Post’s Barton Gellman and the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald have, so far, furnished stories about the NSA’s interception of email traffic, mobile phone calls, and radio transmissions of Taliban fighters in Pakistan’s northwest territories; about an operation to gauge the loyalties of CIA recruits in Pakistan; about NSA email intercepts to assist intelligence assessments of what’s going on inside Iran; about NSA surveillance of cellphone calls “worldwide,” an effort that (in the Post’s words) “allows it to look for unknown associates of known intelligence targets by tracking people whose movements intersect.” In his first interview with the South China Morning Post, Snowden revealed that the NSA routinely hacks into hundreds of computers in China and Hong Kong.

    These operations have nothing to do with domestic surveillance or even spying on allies. They are not illegal, improper, or (in the context of 21st-century international politics) immoral. Exposing such operations has nothing to do with “whistle-blowing.”

    As far as I'm concerned, Snowden committed treason and should be brought back to the U.S. (come on, we have forces that can find him and bring him back in shackles!), put on trial, found guilty and hung!

    As far as I'm concerned 'national security' is pretty damn important and much of the 'secrets' should not have been disclosed. Countries have been spying on each other for eons - phones should be tapped especially when they could be terrorists or spies.

    This issue is being overblown as is typical w/our media today! Most of it - pure bull/baloney!
