    2.Who where my favorite talk show hosts (none of them, I dont listen to talk radio),

    3. Do I support Israel (no and that the nation shouldnt be involved in that centuries old conflict),

    4. Am I aware of the homosexual agenda (dont believe in that "theory")

    5. My views on the Patriot Act (the government has no right to unlawful spying on its citizens)

    6. Various questions on social issues

    At the end of it alot of them called me an secret Obama supporter. One lady said to me that Rush would spit on me. I said to her "Well unlike Rush, my father and two of my uncles (one of them became disabled during the War) had no problems wearing the uniform and serving their country in Vietnam while Rush coward behind an injury. Who then builds a career of being a conservative tough guy against the "evil" liberals who himself is nothing but a phony tough. So being insulted by someone who likes to bark but never bit really doesnt phase me"

    Is this a joke? Who the heck were you trying to organize this through?

    He was very gracious. The NBC affiliate interviewed him. They might have some footage later at Houston News, Houston, Texas News, Weather, and Sports - KPRC Local 2 Click2Houston.

    I felt a little bad that my kid got a picture with him when I know of so many people who are part of the "Revolution" who didn't get to do that! (Including my neighbors who were there. lol )

    Clear Lake is a suburban area of Houston -- on the coast. The rally was about 5 minutes away from the Johnson Space Center.
    Very cool! I would love to see him speak in person, but that's a bit of a drive.

    He vote against a lot of things, but that doesn't mean that everyone in Congress votes against it. So he still brings home plenty of money. Come on.

    He looks younger in person than he does on camera. He donned a red, white, and blue mullet? wig and posed for a picture with some people. Maybe that will show up somewhere!

    "homosexual agenda" is generally used to refer to the minority movement, mostly among homosexuals, who seek to radically alter our social fabric by redefining the family, legalizing pedophilia, etc.

    That sounds entertaining, to say the least.

    Well, I know it's easy to be a "maverick" when it might not cost you anything (meaning it's a done deal without your vote) but the truth is that voting against disaster aid for your own district could possibly cost him his seat in an election. So I don't think his votes are entirely without a risk.

    It's a real movement although the label might be a misnomer because it's such a small minority of homosexuals its absurd.

    That sounds like an utter fabrication. I can't imagine there are too many people who wish to legalize pedophilia... but maybe I'm just naive.
