Some Mormons are trying to have polygamy legalized on the grounds of "religious freedom." (NOTE: Vote Romney '08!)
I may have a one-track mind, but Mormon history aside, I think this is and always has been a big booty call. A Western version of the harem. The end of "Not tonight, I have a headache," because that can be followed by, "Yes, tonight, because I have another wife." Though synchronous ovulation could put a damper on that.
Men have always wanted to have a "selection," so maybe I should envy Mormons? Still, stand-up comedians devote entire routines to the headaches caused by a single wife. Who am I to believe?
I'd say legalize polygamy, if all parties agree to it (Mormon history, even recent, includes forced marriages of teenage girls, a la the Middle East), but only if the church agrees to allow women to have multiple husbands, too. Yup, their very own hare-hims. Anything less proves this to be the chauvinistic practice I already think it is, not some directive from above.
Oh, and tax the shit out of them. LOL
PS: I am thinking about starting a new feature here on BogsBlog called The Road Rage Report. The purpose would be for me to vent here rather than get mad on the road, where it's dangerous. In other words, to protect the American people, including myself.
I drive a long way to work and almost on a daily basis have cause to get very angry at other drivers. I'm not a daredevil driver; I drive just over the speed limit (primarily to avoid run-ins with the law) and typically in the center lane. Just the other day I was in the center lane of the highway, going about 75 mph (the speed limit was 70) and this compact car with a young couple got right up on my rear bumper. Then the guy in the passenger seat starts waving his hand around at me as if to say "Go faster!" That asshole isn't going to pay my speeding ticket, is he? I just shook my head "no." They finally passed me on the left (in the "fast lane"), and as they did I noticed their "Choose Life" license plate. They are apparently very choosy about where and when life is important to them, as their aggressive driving could have harmed a number of people. At that point the little devil guy who sits on my shoulder (you know, the one who fights with the angel guy on the other shoulder over moral dilemmas such as how I should behave) says, "Perhaps you (the occupants of that car) should have been aborted." I'm so ashamed!
