The "Born Gay" theory/hypothesis was put forth by a Homosexual Scientist. Not exactly unbiased. And certainly not hard Science or Scientific Fact, at present.
If Science did isolate the "homosexual gene", potential parents wouldn't necessarily have to pass on reproducing or opt for gene therapy to eliminate homosexuality.
They could just terminate the pregnancy through abortion.

Galt is not arguing that homosexuality is exclusively genetic or developmental, but only that homosexual advocates for heredity may regret it if they get what they wish.

As an aside, how could any male child of lily or Jean from Queens possibly grow up to be heterosexual?

<quoted text>The ignorant maintain the Dixiecrats became Republicans shortly after passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, cway's moronic lie.
Dixiecrats Richard Russell, Mendell Rivers, Clinton's mentor William Fulbright, Robert Byrd, Fritz Hollings and Al Gore Sr. and many more, remained Democrats till their dying day you idiot.
Democrats created the Dixiecrats, when the civil rights movement succeeded by the Republicans, Dixiecrats returned to their racist Democratic fold. It was not till much later, with a new, younger breed of Southerner and the thousands of Northerners moving into the South, that Republicans made gains in the south.
In the age of information...Your ignorance and running on dumbass is still cway's best choice.
Leave it to Democrats to blame Republicans for Southern Democrats becoming Dixiecrats.

When civil rights didn't become the states issue one republican - Goldwater - proposed, they all went running back to their own party with one or two exceptions.

Like that changed the entire history of the South or the boom of manufacturing and banking industries in southern states after 1964 didn't have anything to do with the South becoming red states.

Obama’s former Secretary of Treasury ‘Geithner’ taught our Federal Workers the ins and outs on how to avoid paying their Fair Share ‘Taxes!’
The delinquency rate rose among Federal Employees to 3.2 percent from 2.9 percent the previous year. The 311,566 delinquent taxpayers owe a total of $3.5 billion in federal taxes, according to the IRS data released today!! Solutions give these individuals, Two Options, Thirty Days to pay up or be Terminated!!

Marriage should be a private contract between individuals. They can call it whatever they choose.
"Marriage" should have no bearing on tax law. Why should anyone pay higher or lower taxes based on their marital situation, including the "marriage penalty."
Get the government out of our bedrooms by getting the government out of the marriage business.
The gov. hands is in everyones pants. Good luck with that one.

Bush's Painting Teacher, Bonnie Flood, Talks Making Art With Dubya...

So what does Flood have to say about her month in paradise with GWB? "He has such a passion for painting, it's amazing," the art instructor explained to Fox News. "He's going to go down in the history books as a great artist."

She goes on to reveal that Bush has probably painted around 50 dog portraits and that he signs his masterpieces "43", according to Yahoo News. But don't worry, he didn't spend all his time on canine likenesses; Flood praised Bush for his ascension to landscape grandeur, as he eventually painted scenes from his Texas ranch.

Ask John Galt if he supports abortion!
Galt has often made clear that abortion is morally repugnant but not the business of the government, either to legislate for or against or to financially support.

The historic mission of Planned Parenthood to limit the growth of the undesirable elements of society is noted as critical to prevent the overrun of the country.

Good Morning! So good to see you posting again!

It's a rare condition.
And why one twin would be afflicted and not the other ...
It needs to be researched further, agree.

Just reminded me of ( the movie ) "The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button". What a lovely, beautiful, sad, ingenius movie!

Good morning.
Interesting indeed. I just read where there have been identical twin studies where one twin had the genetic condition progeria and the other didn't. Yet, no one is questioning the link between genetics and progeria.

Tough for a GOP divided between
Christians "against abortion"
and Libertarians "who favor abortion".
Uncle Poodle Patrick lies when he states that Libertarians favor abortion.

Libertarians respect the worth of each individual and therefore detest abortion, while at the same time recognizing the right of immoral people to terminate their children if they so choose.

Republicans need to stuff the abortion issue in the back of the closet.

<quoted text>Thurmond represented South Carolina in the United States Senate from 1954 until 2003, at first as a Democrat and, after 1964, as a Republican. As a new Republican Senator, Thurmond was the only Republican, along with 16 Democratic Senators, to vote against taking up the bill for the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
.
Six months after Thurmond's death in 2003, it was revealed that at age 22, he had fathered a mixed-race daughter, Essie Mae Washington-Williams, with his family's maid, Carrie Butler, a 15-year-old black girl.
This is the last I'm going to say on the topic.

Even though 152 House Democrats voted "yes", 96 voted "no" negating the "yes" votes to 56. 138 House Republicans voted "yes" and 34 "no" negating the 138 to 104.

The difference was 56 to 104 in favor of passing the bill in the House Republicans' favor. Same thing in the Senate.

Carol is against abortion.
