Some dude (see: child) is really unhappy following record breaking numbers of marriage licenses granted in Utah in the wake of the states court overturning its ban on same-sex marriage.
So unhappy, in fact, that he’s going to hold his breath until the court bans gay marriage again.
Well, not exactly, but close. Trestin Meacham, Utah resident and conservative crazy, has declared that he will not eat until the state nullifies its recent decision to allow same-sex marriage. We’re not the first to point out that Meacham thinks that the state has the final say in all legal matters, not the feds. (Hint: he’s wrong.)
He also has an incredible ego, considering the fact that he thinks he’s important enough for the government to recognize, when he said, “Some things in life are worth sacrificing one’s health and even life if necessary. I am but a man, and do not have the money and power to make any noticeable influence in our corrupt system. Nevertheless, I can do something that people in power cannot ignore.”
The funny thing is that unlike some parents, the government doesn’t really care if you starve yourself, they’re not changing the rules. If anything, they might just force him to be fed via feeding tube. If this story gets enough attention, that is.
The fact that allowing gay marriage has already brought in $49,000 (marriage licenses cost between $30-$50 depending on the county) in just three and a half days practically seals the deal, as we all know money rules everything and when you have a country still in the economic throes of a recession, its government isn’t going to turn down any type of revenue.
Good try, Trestin Meacham. Better luck next time.
