No More Sex!
No mention of choice, abortion, marriage (gay or otherwise), contraception, rape, gender equality. Not one question centered around any facet of the human reproductive system, and its various modes of operation and generation. Instead, all four candidates were asked questions none of them had been asked before.
How much did you give to charity? Would you decriminalize marijuana? How should gun permits be handled? Most of the discussion was devoted to taxes, budgeting, local aid and actual government. Considering this is an election to select a Chief Executive for the Commonwealth, it was wonderful.
Porcupine also liked the way that Keller forced Patrick to be more specific. For instance, on the decriminalization question, Patrick launched into another touching story about a family member's struggle with heroin. Keller snapped, 'Yes, but would you veto the bill or not?’ Very refreshing.
Porcupine thinks that we should declare a moratorium on all social and sexual issues for a while. The estimated 10% of the population who are gay have cannibalized 90% of the legislative agenda for the last few years. They and their supporters are entitled to their views, but enough is enough. No more sex for a while -let's talk about GOVERNMENT.
