It's the Economy, StupidPosted by Prince Gomolvilas
If the pollsters are right, then the American people are concerned about the economy more than anything else (except for whether or not High School Musical 3: Gradu-Dancin'(*) is any good). So Aaron (now sober) rightly points out that another approach we can take on this whole issue of gay marriage is emphasizing that it's good for the economy. I know you like visuals, so the accompanying photo (click to enlarge) shows you what one same-sex marriage post did to this blog. Now imagine that graph representing small-business income in California.
Aaron suggests that someone start an online group called "Lawyers, Photographers, Florists, Caterers, and Banquet Halls for Gay Marriage." His reasoning: "Lawyers because more than half of all marriages end in divorce, and the rest of us because, let's face it, a whole group of DINK's splurging on weddings has got to be good for the economy. (DINK is 'Double Income No Kids.')"
Elsewhere in the blogosphere, Jon Hunt throws his support behind the effort to defeat Proposition 8 by pointing out that "the hottest gay relationship in the history of ever...happens to be in the Bible." Other folks who are running with Bamboo Nation include The Bilerico Project, The Liberal O.C., as well as Powen's Preposterous Posterous and the very amusing Bitching My Way to the Brightside.
