Shower Curtain Chronicles: Interesting Monday At The Capitol

Shower Curtain Chronicles

Latex painted shower curtains make great, cheap, waterproof banners to display at demonstrations, over freeways or anyplace you want to take it to the anti-gay, anti-Constitution fascists. This blog will feature banners I've made over the years, commentary on the outrages du jour, general observations and accounts of the latest actions by our blog troop as we wield the bathroom accessory cum political billboard.

Interesting Monday At The Capitol

I made both the Senate and House today but I got too busy over the weekend to announce today's floor sessions beforehand. Oh well, I trust nobody was inconvenienced.
"GAY FAMILIES DESERVE AND DEMAND EQUALITY" was the shower curtain du jour and the first person to cross it's path in front of the Senate was a lady who said twice, "Yes they do." She said it halfway up the stairs and then again when she got to the top. Nice lady.
Next, a group of school kids about ten or eleven years old wearing "St. Thomas" monogrammed sweatshirts, being led by a docent, passed by while carefully reading the sign. A girl read it out loud and then pumped her fists and exclaimed, "Alright!" A boy, thin with dark messy hair and taller than the rest of his class, the only boy carrying a shopping bag, seemed delighted and sort of mesmerized by the sign. He read it out loud a couple of times moving backwards, seeking the support of the bannister and then repeated what the girl had said, all the time looking at the sign and moving sideways down the stairs with his back against the railing. Alright then.
And, a troublesome comment from DFL Senator Rod Skoe as he hustled by this morning, saying, "I'm not sure the words 'AND DEMAND' add anything to your sign." It was clear he thought use of the word "demand" was just too pushy. Well, I guess "demanding" equal treatment for our families from the government we pay taxes to and our gay military people fight and die for is just too uppity for Senator Skoe. I guess we should just whine about our second class citizenship and hope the aristocrats will pity us and throw us a bone if they feel like it. Well, FUCK THAT SHIT! WE DEMAND OUR FUCKING CIVIL RIGHTS!
