One of the things that people fail to notice is I enjoy posting and debate. If everyone sat around we would be like bobble head dolls. Post like that are lifeless
and dull. People who read this blog regularly know I respect honest liberals who are civilin dissent like Kafka and the Chemist. I do not hate the sneering left as typified by the Recidivist . He is entertaining but I stand by my earlier assertions. However he has a problem with dissent of any type. The truth is he is not as open minded as he thinks and should lighten up. I do tip my hat to him for being a sport yesterday. I salute the Chemist for providing an excellent blog every day.
The new term from the left to disparage us on right is wingnut. The term doesn't bother me one bit and I have grown fond of it.Wingnuts are fasteners and keep the screws in place.
1 I visit the Recidivist and I spot a Post Get Drunk Vote Liberal. " So Has Get Drunk Vote Liberal ...He thinks it could be fun to run the Gay adgenda down America's throat".
I pointed out thereis a wide variety of thought on the gay issue and the GOP. I listed the three major battle groud issues involving gays.
1 Most Americans favor civil unions. The issue was not presented that way
2Don't ask don't tell is the policy of the service. Gays can serve and the government is not allowed to ask or inquire on the matter.
3 In school districts the issue of orientation is being presented in early education.The critique is that the material is being presented way too early.
A poster named Hawke
"Y'see this sounds all nice and homo friendly but if the government ( you know, those people in power, not the general public) don't publicize thisview then it isn't the widely held views of American Republicans.
The US Government are anti gay in every way,shape and form.If there was any samples of this not being the case gays wouldn't feel so persecuted there right now.
Civil Unions? Quashed
Gays in the Military ? Not on my watch Pardner
Sex ED in schools? How about any Education in schools"
A pause on this for the reader who may be new. I did a post on Gay Rights Israel and Muslim nations combined. Mr Hawke who is respectful should look at that post before he talks of persecuted gays. The fact that Israel grants assylum to Gays fleeing the PA for their lives is meaningless to the Recidivist.Compare the US, Israel and most of the Muslim world on gays. Then tell me about where gays should feel persecuted.
The Recidivist "This is what happens when you have a semi-illiterate President who comes under the influence of religious fundamentalist Fuitcakes . ( Obvious gay pun
left alone )... All Abord ,this is the 9:11 to Sharia Law:)"
I reiterated my earlier points and added Your remarks about the Presidents intelligence are typical. Bush has an Ivy MBA and was found by the military to have a higher IQ than Kerry.
Republican's are made of several wings Rudy types are liberal on this issue.Libertarians also tend towards liberalism on social issues. The stereo type of the Bible Tumpers is Simplistic.
