    is to subtly spread the meme that tax cuts for the rich coupled with austerity for the poor causes gay marriage.

    This can be statistically proven. Who here can make up some nice colorful charts that juxtapose gay marriage rates in the 1950s, when marginal income tax rates were 90%, with the present time? It got so bad that by the time the deficit-causing Bush tax cuts for billionheirs fully kicked in, a Republican Senator from Idaho got caught trying to fellate a cop in an airport bathroom. The connection is as clear as day.

    Spread the word: Tax cuts for the rich=teh gay!

    Al Qeada is a faith-based initiative.

      The long lived propaganda, you're a socialist if you advocate any sort of wealth equity, or advocate gasp! the wealthy paying taxes to support the infrastructure they use as well as we, is all that's needed.
