September 2004 - Let’s open a bag of worms. The House of Representatives recently passed the Marriage Protection Act, which in turn makes the Defense of Marriage Act a piece of legislation that CAN NOT BE CHALLENGED BY OUR COURTS. Did you catch that? It’s extremely important. I’ll repeat it, so we’re clear. The Marriage Protection Act, in essence, says that the checks and balances that we enjoy in this nation are moot in regard to issues of marriage and that congress is the final unquestioned authority in this matter. So sit back relax, enjoy, and let the Beefboy do, what the Beefboy does best and break it right on down for you.

The Beefboy has to go back some distance to set you up for this rant. I don’t have the space to seriously get into the subject either the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) or the Marriage Protection Act (MPA), but I’ll be brief and point you here if you want to know more. The Defense of Marriage Act was passed in 1996 and basically was created to keep the laws of one state from affecting the laws in another state in respect to same sex marriage. The Marriage Protection Act, which was passed in July by the House of Representatives and has yet to go through the Senate, proposes to strip the judicial branch of it’s right to challenge the DOMA.

I’m going a little further back to make my point, though. Waaay back in 1803, Marbury vs. Madison set the precedent for the Court to challenge laws passed by Congress. After that landmark case Justice John Marshall said, it is the duty of the judicial branch “to say what the law is.” Ever since then, the Court (the Supreme Court and lower Federal Courts) has engaged in Judicial Review which is a vital component of America’s checks and balances system.

Enough history class - it’s time for Professor Beefboy to lay the smackdown. I realize that gay marriage is a hotly contested issue right now and that the idea of two men or two women getting married makes conservatives start running around like a 400lb woman with diarreah who’s about 100 yards away from the nearest potty, but that doesn’t mean that you can subvert one of the most important aspects of American government! Every micro-penis wielding conservative nutsack in the House who signed that bill should be immediately removed from office and sent back to grade school where they belong!

Ever heard of checks and balances guys? Checks and balances allow the President the right to choose who becomes a judge, and to veto silly legislation. It’s the thing that allows Congress the right to question the President about his desire to go to war, or approve his appointments to the judicial branch. And, incidentally, it allows the Court to declare Presidential acts and acts of Congress unconstitutional. Get it? It’s one happy little fucking circle called the Seperation of Powers that works like a charm and keeps all branches of the government from getting too big for their britches. Congress, you just outgrew your pantaloons.

We’ve got an election in two months, we’re up to our eyeballs in Iraqi feces and we still have Osama bin Laden breathing down our necks; is there any possibility that Congress could find something better to do with our time and money than create legislation that will absolutely, unequivocally, be challenged and defeated either in the Senate or in the Courts? Why the fuck are GROWN MEN AND WOMEN, who I assume, have taken and passed rudimentary civics classes, creating fuck-off bullshit legislation that subverts the United States Constitution and has served our country for well over 200 years?!!

The Beefboy has a list of the nutsacks who believe that it is more important to trash the Constitution than to allow even a debate on the subject of gay marriage. Whether you think gay marriage is good or bad (definitely a topic for another article) we should all agree that side-stepping the Constitution is without question, unacceptable. If you have a local congress member who is on this list, please contact them and tell them they need to quit their job immediately and find a grade school where they can learn about a little document we like to call the United States Constitution. Or better yet, if any of those crapholes are running for re-election, why don’t you make a point to give them some free time to catch up on their studies… and vote their ass out of office!
