    a) I didn't call you worthless... I called your opinion worthless. Please do not distort what is said. Comparatively, everyone's opinion is worthless... to anyone but themselves. If you want to prove something, you have to present something more than opinion.

    b) My status as a mod has nothing to do with me debating you as a member right now. There is zero reason to bring it up.

    There is a difference between teaching about homosexuality and TEACHING homosexuality. Schools teach about sex education. They don't teach sex. Schools teach about about a lot of things. They don't necessarily teach how to do those things. Your claim is absurd. I've seen it before. It had no merit then, it has no merit now.

    fortunately or unfortunately, leadership here, as elsewhere, is lacking



    On World AIDS Day, Larry Kramer, who first warned of epidemic, rips 'Do-nothing' Obama

    do you disagree?

    either way, it's doa, as mitch mcconnell, on behalf of all 42 united, today declared in writing ALL legislation LAME until congress deals with its exigent responsibilities

    ie, resolution on the 2011 income tax and continuance of the various appropriations, which expire december 3, required to keep the govt operating, after congressional leadership inexplicably punted, offering NO BUDGET resolution for 2011

    NationalJournal.com - GOP Will Filibuster All Bills if Taxes, Budget Not Addressed - Wednesday, December 1, 2010

    Dems won

    finally, i hope it is not wandering too far afield here to note, today being AIDS day, that george w what's-his-name, say what you will about him, was a model of compassion, concern and caring when it came to this scariest of scourges

    Rock star Bono praises Bush for AIDS plans

    indeed, george w, if you look at him dispassionately, may be recognized as, perhaps, one of the leaders in all world history when it comes to combatting hiv

    and he acted upon his humanity, if i recall correctly, with pretty much universal support from republicans across the country

    stay up
    None of which has anything to do with what we are talking about. Thank you for sharing that random bit of nonsense.

    Re: Pentagon: Letting openly gay troops serve won't hurt military

    A repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell?” Don’t bet on it.

    The window for action on reversing the ban on gays in the military is quickly closing, and the path to undoing the 17-year-old law is riddled with roadblocks: a crowded lame-duck calendar, Democratic defectors, and emboldened Republican senators who have no desire to hand a legislative victory to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
