    When I was in the infantry, there were guys who talked abou ****ing on a regular basis. There were also guys who didn't. Not once did I ever notce anyone questioning them as to why they didn't participate in those conversations.

    Phoenix, AZ bulldozed whole neighborhoods and put in commercial stuff. like the rental car agency, all the rental car in the same huge building....but they still have LOTS of blight in the area....

    The reality is....it does work. All you have to look at is the money that the right-wing, namely the Mormons spent in California during prop 8 to spread their lies and alter the election. It was one of the dirtiest and most deceitful campaigns that I have seen in my life.
    Not that you would deceive anybody on the subject, right? Mormons are a very small percentage of the California population, and a small part of the combined effort to sway the results of Prop 8, but they are the ones being demonized by the gays. The Catholic church was heavily involved, and black voters played a large role as well...gonna dis the blacks now?

    That said....its only a matter of time. The polls are shifting dramatically.
    What I though was a possibility at some point in my life, is something that now is inevitable within a very short time. There is no way that the radical right can continue to mislead the majority with their lies with the changing demographics and Americans becoming more and more educated and tolerant.
    OH yeah, blacks and latinos listen to the mormons all the time....right?

    I think we all know the answer to that one.
