United States of Hypocrisy

With Liberty and Justice for the Heterosexual

What do straight people and gay people have in common? Pretty much everything–except for the United States government is legally forbidden to recognize same-sex marriage. The Defense of Marriage Act (signed into law by President Clinton) defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman for the purpose of interpretation of federal laws about married couples. This law makes it illegal for the federal government to recognize same-sex couples and therefore, such couples (even in states that allow same-sex marriage) are forbidden over 1000 rights granted to married couples by the federal government.

If you agree that this discrimination needs to stop, I urge you to contact your Senators and Representatives.

The American Way of Life

leave a comment »

Take a look at your grocery list. What kinds of foods do you have listed? Do you have things such as whole grain breads, fresh fruits and vegetables, and (if you’re not vegetarian) lean cuts of meat? If you live in the United States, chances are you don’t. In America, sugary, processed foods are much more affordable than their all-natural counterparts.

While I was shopping at my local supermarket, I thought I would take a look at how much of a difference there was between the foods I was buying and the foods I wanted to buy. What I discovered shocked me. A standard box of Fruit Loops (which would last about two weeks at my house) cost about $3; a 3-pound bag of apples (which would last about four days at my house) cost about $4. Think about that for a minute. I can be fed for two weeks by spending $3 or, I can eat a healthy alternative for the same amount of time and spend five times as much. Which is the logical choice for a struggling family?

And we wonder why America is getting fat.
