Probably a pretty good idea.  All they have to do is change the law to eliminate all the tax benefits that accrue on the basis of marriage.

You know... the ironic thing for all the consulting with the Vagina Monologue poet and the evidently extreme feminist slant of the latest Mad Max... 

Is they gave the strong lead female character a female gender diminutive name. FuriosA, not FuriosO.   Or even simply Furios - with no gender implication at all. 

And I'm pretty sure I'm the first person I've seen point that shit out.

It was awesome. 

It was awesome that the empowered women needed Max and a Warboy in order to achieve everything they achieved, and I think the MRAs and the Militant Feminists missed that too. 

That was my point. They were so busy seeing what they wanted to see - they didn't see the things they didn't want to. 

A lot of that going in these days in 'Merica. 

I want to see it again on video, with subtitles, so I can understand the mumbling Australian accents being drowned out by blasting engines, haboob fire tornadoes and blaring flarme-thrower spitting guitars.

Just last night, I was thinking a great SciFi story would be about this ficitional political party that strove for absolute rule of a nation. They even caused a previous civil war. Afterwards, a think-tank of their greatest minds came up with a long term plan. They would oppress a group of society so badly, for so long, that this community was crushed and hopeless. They would promote policies that would create destruction and dispair in their neighborhoods. After decades of this, they would leave their party and infiltrate the opposition party, over the opposition passing legislation that reversed that discrimination. They would take their policies of extreme hatred to that opposition party, and the original party would suddenly promote policies that seemed more progressive, that seemed to reverse their decades of hatred and cruelty.

They would offer to care for the broken down and defeated people of the community that they had ground under their heels for generations, offering them shelter, and food, and clothing and care. They would present themselves as SAVIORS of the very people they had put in such a position of destitute hopelessness in the first place.

And they would expand those systems of presenting themselves as a paternalistic party interested in the welfare and justice of all citizens to every oppressed group who they had beat down for generations.

All this time, at every opportunity, they would create anger and animosity at the opposition party that had been invaded by their most radical fringe, stirring outrage and anger by baiting issues and blaming ongoing oppression and injustice on that opposition party's policies. The goal was to eventually trigger a second civil war, but this one with the support of all the oppressed and demoralized groups - on the side of the group that had put them there.

In the meantime, their policies had brought all those oppressed groups out of hiding, out of the shadows. Each group suddenly felt safer, more secure under the protection of a party that presented itself as a parent but secretly despised the children it claimed to protect.

After defeating the opposition party and becoming the sole ruler of this nation - it had exposed and flushed out all the undesirables who were in hiding and had all the other undesirables dependent on it providing for their welfare and health. It was easy to start the purges of those who it had always despised.

Put a girl in the lead character fighting the reistance, maybe with a bow and arrow.... cast some typical Southern-esque white man as the leader of the oppressing dictatorship Government... I bet it would be a best seller and box office blow out.

I believe that is a favorite quote of King's.

Also "I have the heart of a young hipster, in a jar over my mantle..."

I may be paraphrasing that last one.
