The war: There will always be wars. Vonnegut(in one of his more uninspired moments notes): "being anti-war is as likely to stop war as being anti-glacier is to stop glaciers." So stop rallying and protesting, because all it does is make you look more self-righteous and silly than you realize. Plus, since being anti-war is predictably cool, the only real cool thing you can do is to be conscientiously ambivalent.
Gay marriage: Let the fags do what they want. Who cares.
