Barack Obama, our next President

Gee, what happened to my "No Child Left Behind" program? Over 1/3 of all highschool students are dropping out.

Wait a minute. If you take the reciprocal of 1/3, that equals 3. Only 3 kids dropped out during my eight years in office.

woo hoo!

That's a classic. No one knew where he was going or what he was talking about anymore after the first 5 minutes.
Fool me once, shame on you.

Fool me twice and I'll climb up a tree and start screaming like a chimp. Until you give me a banana.

"To use a broad brush and paint everyone who is against gay marraige as being against gays is an unfair and inaccurate statement."
No. You can't be my friend and be against my marriage. That's just something people tell themselves so they don't feel like bad people. You can't separate me from my husband. Rejected.
The same weak arguments you made about stigmas and children living with gay parents were made about interracial kids. Rejected. The problem there is with society, not with the interracial kids, not with the kids being raised by gay parents. And as time goes on, those problems correct themselves thanks to...what? INFORMATION and EXPERIENCE which wipe out the ignorance.
The fact is gay couples already do and will always raise children. Therefore those children must be addressed equally under the law. There is no rational reason to deny equality to their families, just because you're afraid of the unknown. You can't prove harm, game over, case closed. And all early studies show every indication kids in gay families are just fine. P.S. You don't ban single parents, so don't be a hypocrite and pretend this isn't about prejudice. Just because you can't imagine beyond your prejudice, doesn't mean the rest of us won't.
This is really about respecting your nation and your neighbors. We don't have to live by your rules.
There's no doubt in my mind homosexual couples are as fit to be good parents as heterosexuals. You're right that various studies have shown adoptive children of homosexuals are as well-adjusted as any other child.

But as loving as homosexuals might be as parents, they can't replace a loving mother and a father.

In any civilized society, there has to be a set of core values and boundaries so that everyone is at least reading the same chapter. Right now, we're reading different books. Add abortion to the mix, and we're in different libraries.

You get my drift.

Once we cross too many lines, the next version of what society must tolerate whether we like it or not is soon to follow. There is now a growing concern that infanticide is next in line. Something I hope you would find unacceptable too.

The definition of marriage is a stronghold in society that cannot be broken. As unfair as it seems to gays.

But life isn't always fair and there are some things we just have to accept. The ageless definition of marriage is one of them.

Bush was not comfortable as a public speaker, granted. He had a reputation for being quite articulate and convincing in more intimate groups.

This is one of my favorites.

Well, good for you and "USA Today". Try Human Rights Watch.
As if Obama sent in CIA and special forces operators to create the gangs of thugs now operating in that country.
Sorry, elephant. But your "spread the blame" game isn't working.
Faleh Abdul-Jabbar, the director of the Baghdad-based Iraq Institute for Strategic Studies, told the BBC the US withdrawal would be "counter-productive for so many reasons" pointing to Iraq's political vacuum and its "weak army and reviving insurgency".

"Withdrawal at this point would send the wrong signals to the political class, saying that the US is withdrawing no matter what. And second, it would send the wrong signal also to the insurgency - dormant or active - that we are withdrawing no matter what, and they would see it as a retreat," he added.

Apparently, Obama saw it differently. Time will tell who was right - Faleh Abdul-Jabbar or Barack Obama.

Auntie, stick with USA Today. It's about your speed.

You don't have the background knowledge to understand what's happening over there.

Do you read the news? If gay marriage is imposed on society (it damn sure won't be voted in), do you think it would be possible a father could marry his son to avoid inheritance tax? Are you good with that?
