Welcome to Finley Experience

This website is dedicated to LGBT folks who are surviving in this crazy world.

What's good for one isn't necessarily good for another.

Attempting to control the hearts and souls of the masses through force and injustice only forces the seeds of dissension to grow. History has taught this lesson repeatedly. Perhaps, we'll learn the lesson this time.

A Poem: Supreme Shake to the DOMA Debate

They wont debate the Constitutionality of banning homosexuality.
They wont debate the Constitutionality of barring homosexuals.
They wont debate the Constitutionality of...wait...what's that you say?
They debated? They debated in the Supreme Courthouse?
They debated the standing, the precedent, the merits?
But, you say they say they wont debate the Constitutionality?
Did they mention the 5th, the 14th, the--? Yes, they did!
That's the Constitution then. But, they still claim they wont?
Am I wrong to think they just did? Am I wrong to laugh as I just did?
They debated the tax and estate rights of legally married folks.
They really debated 1100 federal laws with that one stroke.
They debated the malice behind the word "DEFENSE" in DOMA,
as if married queers are all offensive guards looking for a touchback.
They debated the "innocence" of taking the traditional stand
in a country that traditionally stands with up-turning standing traditions
based in malice and misunderstanding of un-empowered citizens.
They debated "uniformity of law" in a country over-flowing with uninformed
uniformed enforcers of more differentiated laws than a life-time of reading
could cover if a life-time reader dedicated a life-time to the task.
They finally debated. That's the grandest part of "checks-and-balances",
each third has an opportunity, eventually, to say what they need to say,
to do what they need to do to move U.S. closer to that golden era,
that beautiful ideal, that inalienable human right to LIFE, LIBERTY,
and the PURSUIT of HAPPINESS. So, maybe they didn't debate
the Constitutionality of homosexuality, they definitely did debate
the Constitutionality of creating second class citizenry where none need be.

(*Please Note: We the People of the United States of America are citizens of a Constitutional Republic, a.k.a. The Republic. We are not a direct democracy like some believe. By the Constitution, we are a Representative Democracy. We elect representation to defend the Constitution and the People. We placed our faith with government in the people, not in monarchs, not in career politicians, but in the People.

You want changes? Then, it is time for you to take an active interest in the good of the Republic. Do not leave governance to career politicians. Run for office. Vote for third, fourth, and fifth parties.)

This November vote them all out!
Clean Out Congress or Bust!
