With apologies to Bill Maher – these are my new rules

If you vote for a war – you must agree to a drafting of your relatives to fight in that war – your children, grandchildren, in-law spouse, etc. – any relative between 17 and 42 must serve! They will have no choice and no way to get an exemption.

If you say negative anythings about gays and lesbians – and you are a politician with a gay or lesbian person anywhere in your family - you must immediately resign your political position.

If you use the term family values in your arguments against abortion, against gay marriage or civil unions and have a divorce in your own background or anywhere in your family – you must resign any elected position you have immediately and/or if you are a talk show person, you shall immediately quit your job.

If you have a minimum of 2 divorces in your own past - you shall never again be allowed to marry.

If you dislike abortions and speak out and/or vote against them, you must adopt one child a year.

If you say you are against abortions because you are pro life – you must agree to eliminate the death penalty.

If you say you want to fight terrorists “there” so you do not have to fight them “here” – you must immediately go “there” and join the fighting.

If you say you support the troops – you must donate your salary and savings to pay the soldiers as much as the mercenaries and Halliburton get paid and let them have the same vacation as the shrub and the same vehicles as rummy uses in Iraq.

more as I hear the hypocrites speak

I can imagine a lot of problems arising from your rules, but I definitley understand where you're coming from. It's surprising to me how hypocritical people can be.

I just found out that 26 states allow marriage between first cousins, 20 of which have zero restrictions for these marriages. Among these states that exclude ANY restrictions for cousin marriages are: Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, New Mexico, South Carolina, Tennessee, TEXAS AND UTAH! I find it ironic that these states are probably the loudest in their plight against the abomination of gay marriages citing a passage from the Bible, but Leviticus 18: 6-19 clearly lists a whole lot of forbidden marriages none being between two people of the same sex...

It is complete hypocrisy right in front of our faces!
